1 PETER 4:12-19

12Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13But rejoice in so far as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a wrongdoer, or a mischief-maker; 16yet if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but under that name let him glorify God. 17For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18And “If the righteous man is scarcely saved, where will the impious and sinner appear?” 19Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will do right and entrust their souls to a faithful Creator.

PSALMS 126:1-6

1When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” 3The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad. 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb! 5May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

MATTHEW 10:34-39

34“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36and a man’s foes will be those of his own household. 37He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it.

What an inexplicably exhausting day….

What a relief to have DePat’s wonderful Thursday post to read and relax with.

gil00

Do you know which company is best for whale watching(4hr) in monterey? Best spot to see otters? And was steinbeck a commie?

cthulhu

I don’t know of a specific company. It’s largely the luck of the draw.

Same for the otters — they are nomadic and move around from place to place depending on food. Some days they might be at the breakwater, some days out by the Aquarium, some days out at Lovers’.

Steinbeck certainly hung out with enough Commies, but was knocked about the head by reality enough to not fully commit. He did some very Commie things — toured the Soviet Union, signed letters, attended Commie hangouts — and then turned around and had splashes of patriotism and respect for “common people”. Try https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Steinbeck and see what you think.

cthulhu

To be slightly more specific about whale-watching, it will go best if there are whales there to watch — and different whales will be there at different times for different reasons (none of them just live there).

The California grey whale is fairly common. They feed in the cold waters off the shore of Alaska during the summer, then go to Baja California in winter. https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/west-coast/science-data/gray-whales-eastern-north-pacific https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray_whale .

Just about every gray whale calf is born in a Mexican lagoon within a six week period near January. By May, all the whales have cleared out of Mexico and are headed north — they can travel 120 miles per day. They start heading south again around October. June through September are not prime whale-watching times for gray whales near Monterey.

Blue whales are endangered. So far as is known, they are the largest animal ever to have lived on earth. They can be found off the coast of California during summer and early fall. They dive deeper and swim further out from shore than gray whales — and seem to avoid being around other filter-feeding whales. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_whale

We have seen a Minke whale on a whale-watching trip off of Victoria, BC. Otherwise, I’ve never seen another. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minke_whale

Humpback whales are not particularly rare and are common “targets” of whale-watching expeditions. Like every whale so far listed, they migrate from cold waters in the north to feed, to warmer waters in the south to breed. There is a group of humpbacks that travel from the area around Hawaii to the area off of Alaska. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humpback_whale

Orcas don’t tend to migrate nearly as much as these other whales. Various populations can be “residents” of a particular area, and can be reliably found there. These generally eat fish. Other groups of orcas may be “transients” passing through a region, frequently eating mammals (seals). Other groups are commonly known as “offshores”. They are highly social animals and can teach each other behaviors — one, for instance, learned to come close to the surface and regurgitate some of its earlier meals of fish…..when seabirds flew in to investigate, the orca then ate the birds. Then it taught four of its friends how to do the same trick. One orca, “White Gladys”, off the coast of Spain has a grudge against sailboats and has figured out how to disable (rip off rudder) and sink them. She’s teaching others. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orca

Each of these types of whales move up and down the coast to their own rhythm. On a day when the Monterey region is packed with whales, any competent boat will provide a great tour. On a day when there are very few whales to be found, only the best boats will be able to find any and you may be disappointed in the results despite their skill.

gil00

There are sightings of eat of those now. I had no idea orcas hung out up there. Of course its also great white season. There was one of the coast of Torey Pines that killed a dolphin a couple weeks ago.

cthulhu

One peculiar resource for finding otters is to stop at a dive shop and ask where divers have seen them. If you go around noon, you can get feedback from returning divers who have actually seen them in the water.

Two shops are: Aquarius https://aquariusdivers.com/ — this is out north of town — and Bamboo Reef (831) 372-1685 at 614 Lighthouse Ave. Monterey, CA 93940 — which is closer in.

One thing to note is that otters are a bit of a pest around divers.

cthulhu

In the Monterey area, several animals think it’s funny to be a pest to divers. They somehow know that divers cannot legally approach or pursue them, and that they can do no wrong in the eyes of the law.

This, for instance, is a dive float. A dive class will frequently put one of these in an area where they’re going to have some divers. Inside might be some spare weights, the class roster, stuff to be used in the next exercise, etc.

While the sea otter is playing with it, it is illegal to even come near it — much less dump the otter out and slap the water or blow a whistle at it.

**********************

Seals swim through the water, but sea lions fly — their “arms” can span a reach longer than its body, and its neck is as flexible as an eel. At one point, I was diving at Point Lobos with a couple who had written a book on the colorful sea slugs (nudibranchs) in the area. They were shoulder-to-shoulder, carefully inspecting this section of rock, while I was no more than ten feet away. This sea lion evidently figured that whatever they were looking at so carefully might be edible, so swooped-up behind them and poked its head between theirs. Seeing nothing tasty, it pulled its head back and swooped away. After the dive, I asked what they thought about their visitor………they hadn’t noticed.

************************

On another occasion, I was diving at Monastery Beach. It’s a very interesting place where there is a nasty surf zone, an area about the length of a tennis court that is shallow, then a cliff that goes down about 1200 feet. People have seen big pelagics there — sunfish, manta rays, sharks….

The guy I was diving with had gotten through the surf more cleanly than I had, so he was about 20 feet in front of me. I had gotten my trim together and was trudging out — I’d been in swimming pools that were deeper. Then something grabbed the tip of my fin.

I rolled over into a sitting position to see what was going on, to find a seal looking at me over my fins. He moved toward one, and I did a “shoo-shoo” with that one — then he moved to the other. I didn’t know if he wanted to play fetch or do swimming races, but I wasn’t in the mood. Eventually, he turned and swam off — and I was almost 40 feet behind my dive buddy.

gil00

I gues i shouldve known you cannot approach them but that surprised me a bit. Glad it was only a seal playing w your flipper!

Aubergine

Lol! Animals.

When I lived in Hawaii, I loved the sea turtles. Of course, it is totally illegal to touch them, but someone forgot to tell the turtles!

One day, I walked down to the beach. It was super hot, so I just sat down at the edge of the surf. Then a wave came up and washed a two-foot turtle right into my lap!

I waited for the next wave, and as it went out, I sort of lifted the turtle into it. I was so glad I was the only person on the beach.

cthulhu

The Fiancee reminded me of another notable animal encounter. We were doing a dive on the back side of Anacapa Island off of Ventura. There was a bit of a current, so a lot of sediment was in the water, and we were keeping fairly close to the anchor line. Slowly, out of the murk, we became aware of a fish that was about two feet tall, a foot wide, and about five feet long.

It didn’t seem particularly upset or anything, but it was facing us. To add to the surrealism of the underlying metaphor, the fish was vaguely silver and lightly covered with black polka-dots the size of silver dollars.

The Fiancee had a camera, and I tried to give her a good shot. She interprets this as me backing away and signaling to “eat her first”, but I was really hoping for a pic. OTOH, who knows what the reaction might have been to the camera’s flash? It might have turned out like one of those “take a selfie with a buffalo” stories….

Turns out, this was a well-known denizen of the area. https://www.nps.gov/chis/learn/nature/giant-black-seabass.htm This one was named, IIRC, “Hank”. It was a great relief to us that we didn’t have to convince a skeptical dive boat captain what we had seen.

cthulhu

Wow, that’s cool. Big fish are scary.

I was once attacked by a ten-inch long Humuhumunukunukuapua`a.

I had no idea, but the males guard the eggs, and I was too close. It swam right up in my face twice.

Children’s Health Defense:

Twelve Infants Perish in Clinical Trial for RSV Shot – FDA Recommends Anyway

Four of the twelve infants’ deaths in the AstraZeneca trial were from cardiac arrest, and two died of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

The FDA claimed the deaths were “unrelated” to AstraZeneca’s monoclonal antibody injection, but how often do you hear about four babies naturally dying of cardiac arrest in a clinical trial setting?

“This is hugely important,” stressed #CHDTV Polly Tommey. “The pediatricians are going to push this. The doctors, as soon as the babies are born, they’re going to give these babies this RSV jab.”

Who were those babies? What parent signs up their child to test an unproven vaccine?

gil00

Orphans?

TheseTruths

I wondered about that, but what would make it okay to experiment on children just because they do not have parents or guardians? I know it has been done in the past, but that doesn’t excuse it.

scott467

“I wondered about that, but what would make it okay to experiment on children just because they do not have parents or guardians?”

____________

Nothing.

Nothing in a million universes.

Having parents, or not having parents, has nothing to do with the inherent value of any child’s life, or any child’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The existence of parents increases the chances that the child will be protected from monsters until he or she is old enough to protect himself.

TheseTruths

Yes. My question was rhetorical. Some unfortunate children have no one to protect them, or they get taken from their protectors, and then they become prey.

kalbokalbs

No child should be used in an experiment. None. Should be a criminal act.

Aubergine

‘Reckless in the Extreme’: FDA Panel Recommends New RSV Shot for Use in Healthy Infants
https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/rsv-monoclonal-antibody-shot-infants/

Advisers to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday recommended approval of AstraZeneca’s new monoclonal antibody, which the drugmaker said is designed to protect infants and toddlers up to age 2 from respiratory syncytial virus, but medical experts interviewed by The Defender called the move “reckless” and “preposterous.”

But medical experts interviewed by The Defender raised a number of concerns, including what they said was inadequate safety testing.

“It’s preposterous to give this drug prophylactically, especially without adequate safety testing,” said Brian Hooker, Ph.D., P.E., senior director of science and research for Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

AstraZeneca reported only 48% efficacy for the drug. And Hooker noted that the “circulating half-life of the antibodies is probably less than one month so the protection would be minimal at best.”

Hooker also commented on the fact that 12 infant deaths were recorded during the clinical trial, which the FDA committee claimed were “unrelated” to the antibody…

The world has gone evil and mad.

TheseTruths

According to CNBC, the FDA is expected to make a final decision on nirsevimab in the third quarter of this year.

Nass told The Defender that while the FDA is not obligated to follow the panel’s advice, “it almost always does so.”

Along with no ventilators, Paxlovid, Remdisivir…

NO, HCQ, Ivermectin, Azithromycin.

Do use ventilators. Did not recognize any other recommended stuff.

Looks like EVERY Covid Injection IS recommended.

AND, PFIZER-BIONTECH IS GOING AFTER PREGNANT WOMEN WITH ITS RSV “VACCINE” —

One: on 18 May 2023, the FDA’s VRBPAC panel “approved” the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech RSV “vaccine”, called RSVpreF, to be used on pregnant women in the THIRD trimester of pregnancy to “prevent RSV infection in both mother and baby.”
THIS “VACCINE” IS STILL IN CLINICAL TRIALS UNTIL NOVEMBER, 2023:
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04424316

HOWEVER, an almost-identical “vaccine” by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), ALSO in clinical trials with pregnant women was stopped because IT WAS CAUSING PREMATURE BIRTHS.

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

———————————-

inflation was never at 2% so this too is a lie.”
—————————————————-

“The rest of the west is going down with the UK. Lol You did not think the UK was going down on its own did you?
At the moment the criminals will need too implement the CBDC sooner rather than later.”
—————————————————–

“It’s not sticky inflation that is the problem. It’s sticky stupidity that thinks you can trigger a war with Russia which supplies crucial materials and fuel as well as trying to convert to carbonless sources of energy at the same time. Also, asset inflation eventually feeds through to goods and services inflation.”
——————————————————

“F@cking pointless raising rates when the biggest spender in the economy is government (all welfare and employees as well).
Next round of wage demands will override any benefit of interest rate rises.
When the government spending as a share of the economy is small rate rises would work but government spending is the major share of the economy.
It is in an inflation spiral and government cutting is the only way out.”

https://michael-hudson.com/2023/06/sending-dollars-abroad-via-the-military/

Excerpt:
———————

” … China has a great benefit that the Western countries don’t — it treats money as a public utility. Its banking is a state bank, not a private banking system. In America, the private banks lend money to the financial sector to make money in the stock market, in the bond market by buying stocks and bonds already issued, and in the real estate market by buying homes and commercial real estate that’s been built long ago. Banks in the West do not lend money to build factories or machinery. They don’t lend money to set up business. They leave that to the stock market, basically, but not the banks. China uses its Bank of China, its government central bank, to actually spend money and provide credit to the real economy, to build new real estate, to finance new industrial producers, new manufacturing facilities. That’s the great advantage of China. To the extent that America tries to produce sanctions on China, the effect will be the same as producing sanctions on any other country. They’ll force the country being sanctioned to replace imports with its domestic production to do import substitution. You can be sure that that’s what China is doing right now, especially with the information technology that America is concentrating its sanctions on. If you look at the number of patents that are made in information technology, China’s way ahead of every other country in this. They’re producing an enormous educated engineering class that is not being produced in the United States or the West. If you are a leading student and you want to make money in the West, you’ll go into finance. And finance has the effect of destroying industry, not helping it. Whereas China is sending its graduates into engineering and the computer technology and the science primarily not into making money by financial maneuvering and getting the rest of the economy into debt to yourself.”

Just my opinion –

Mike Holly’s story on the Fed/Markets in DePat’s links is a good one. Big picture without getting into the weeds for the less financially astute.

If WEF/globalists succeed in stealing the next election and keep enough traitors in Congress to control, expect a real depression as they make their mad asset grabs from the sheeple to counter BRICS. Middle income down will suffer big time. So prepare as if it is going to happen and pray for PDT and MAGA patriots to win out.

#1 priority, get out of debt as much as you can and reduce stock market holdings in your 401k’s and investments until the dust settles. If PDT wins with enough patriots in Congress, there will be plenty of time to reenter the markets and improve your financial condition.

The question then, what’s the best alternative to the market with ones IRA? Asking for a friend of course.

RDS

Yours Truly is not a financial professional, but it seems that some considerations could be:
What control does one have over the investment “allotments” within the IRA?
If the IRA is invested in mutual funds, can this be changed to individual stock holdings of the “safer” types?
Can any / all of the IRA be changed into cash holdings and/or CD’s?

Yours Truly feels there will be pitches for “now’s the time to convert the IRA into gold and/or silver” approaches. One believes that any precious metal holdings need to be in direct physical control (holding) of the individual and kept under lock and key.

TradeBait2

100% agree ^^^

Self directed IRA’s can go into bonds and CDs for safety.

RDS

From the lessons learned by Yours Truly based on the 2007-2009 real estate crash:
making a budget that’s between 25%-40% below what one has available currently, and living within that budget.
This is in addition to the suggestions of our good TradeBait 2, above.

One thing that’s going to be difficult in the potential “Great Depression II” is that, while personal / family budgets will have to be tightened in every way possible, taxes and “fees” of all kinds will go up — even if items like real estate tax assessments remain relatively “stable.”

V. Balance: The criminal Kiev regime carried out a barbarous shelling of civilian objects – bridges on the administrative border between the Kherson region and Crimea near Chongar.

▪️Kyiv terrorists want to intimidate Kherson residents, sow panic among the population, but they will not be able to do this. We are able to repair bridges quickly: the passage of cars will be restored in the very near future.

▪️According to a preliminary assessment, British Storm Shadow missiles were used. The road surface on the bridges was damaged. There are no human casualties.

▪️We have an answer for every step of the enemy. The communication between the Kherson region and the Crimea continues to operate – the movement of vehicles along the reserve route is temporarily organized.

The U.S. Coast Guard says debris field has been found near the Titanic during search for submersible
https://news.yahoo.com/rescuers-last-desperate-push-final-040243936.html

The U.S. Coast Guard said Thursday that an underwater vessel has located a debris field near the Titanic in the search for a missing submersible with five people aboard, a potential breakthrough in an increasingly urgent around-the-clock effort.

The Coast Guard’s post on Twitter gave no details, such as whether officials believe the debris is connected to the Titan, which was on an expedition to view the wreckage of the Titanic. The search passed the critical 96-hour mark Thursday when breathable air could have run out…

Wife of missing OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush is a descendant of couple killed on Titanic in 1912: report
https://www.foxnews.com/world/wife-missing-oceangate-ceo-stockton-rush-descendant-couple-killed-titanic-1912-report

The wife of Stockton Rush, the OceanGate CEO who went missing Sunday on a tourist submersible that dove to view the Titanic wreckage, is a descendant of two first-class passengers who died on the Titanic, according to a report.

Stockton’s wife Wendy Rush is a direct descendant of Isador and Ida Straus, who were among more than 1,500 people who died when the iconic vessel struck an iceberg and sank into the sea during a voyage through the Atlantic Ocean in 1912, the New York Times reported.

The Strauses were two wealthy first-class passengers who had been married for more than 40 years. Survivors recalled Ida Straus refusing a spot on a lifeboat when the ship began to sink. Instead, she chose to remain with her husband in their final moments, the Times reported.

Their story was included in James Cameron’s fictional 1997 blockbuster “Titanic,” depicted as an elderly couple who remained in bed together as their room filled with water, per the report.

In a March 2022 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, located in Richmond, Va., blocked the state from terminating public funding for Planned Parenthood South Atlantic through Medicaid because Planned Parenthood provides abortion services.

They already know what went wrong.

The whole thing is like a parable of human arrogance and stupidity, a laundry list of the things you should never do, based on common sense and from ignoring all the accumulated experience (and lessons from tragedy) going back to the first submarine.

They rejected all of that. They rejected reality. When their fantasy was put to the test, reality rejected them.

The problem for the talking heads will be trying to explain what so obviously went wrong, without insulting the memory of the people who did it, without comparing their intellects to that of a mushroom.

It’s the kind of breathtaking stupidity that could only manifest in a bubble of willful lunacy.

Based on the the CEO’s own words, the stupidity was intentional, proudly predicated on Woke BS.

And since Woke BS is the new religion of the realm — and when put to the test, the Woke BS resulted in a catastrophic loss of life — the high priests of Wokeism have to figure out how to explain this catastrophic failure, without condemning the Woke BS that directly led to the failure.

And they can’t do it, not without admitting that all their Woke theory and related BS is pure fantasy that will get you killed in the real world.

So they’ll do what they always do.

They’ll just lie.

They’re going to lie to themselves, and they’re certainly going to lie to us.

Well, the good news is that it wasn’t a lingering death by suffocation. Any collapse that results in pieces will have been quite sudden.

TheseTruths

There were reports that the sub would automatically release ballast after a certain amount of time, which theoretically would propel it to the surface. One nightmare scenario was that it could be floating but the crew couldn’t open the hatch from the inside. I’m glad that didn’t happen.

cthulhu

With a carbon-fiber pressure hull, it doesn’t flex before it essentially disintegrates. The average remaining piece size of the pressure hull may be 3″x3″ or less — smaller than a CD. I wouldn’t expect that they will ever find substantial amounts of the hull or crew.

TheseTruths

Was a carbon-fiber pressure hull not optimal for this vessel?

cthulhu

There are several answers to this question — from the very flippant, “well, not this one…..” to complicated engineering-calculation laden things — but I’ll stick with the “not in concept, but in implementation” line.

If I were designing something to dive to 13,000 feet repeatedly, I’d build it capable of hitting 26,000 — and, then, I’d inspect it after every dive. This one was designed and built to hit 12,000 and not regularly inspected.

scott467

If I heard correctly, it was tested once to 3,000 meters with a crew of 1 (the CEO), and that was it.

It had never been tested to 4,000 meters.

But it’s being tested now.

cthulhu

I believe that other paying customers and/or “referrers” (media people) had ridden it down to the wreck. They’ve all got to be saying, “there, but for the Grace of God….”

scott467

I read that the company has other submersibles that may have been down to the wreck, submersibles of more customary design (not carbon fiber).

The only info I have found about the Titan submersible (the one that imploded) is that it was experimental, that it was not certified by any regulatory body, that journalist David Pogue went on a dive in it that ended at a depth of just 37 feet after they had a problem, and that the CEO had been to 3,000 meters once, by himself.

I have not yet found any information that any successful trip was ever made to the bottom, to the Titanic wreckage, in the experimental Titan submersible.

cthulhu
cthulhu

A slightly different take….when it comes to “strength”, there are various types. There is compression strength, which is whether it deforms when squished between two surfaces. Tension strength is when one end is anchored and the other pulled. Torsion strength is when one end is anchored and the other twisted. I forget what it’s called, but if one end of a bar is anchored and the other pushed at 90 degrees, that’s another.

Carbon fiber materials are made by taking carbon fibers and embedding them in a resin. It excels at certain kinds of strength but not at others. It can make very light, very strong shells — but, just like when you crack an egg, the strength is dependent on the shape’s ability to distribute forces. It is not particularly strong in tension or torsion situations.

When you crack a pressure shell at 5000 pounds per square inch (or even 2000 pounds), the edges of the crack will be twisted and forced apart — which are precisely the types of strength where carbon fiber is not particularly well-suited. Thus, if it fails, it will fail catastrophically.

Ukrainian “decision-making centers”

The Ukrainians have already attacked the Kremlin. That would be like an attack on the White House and the Pentagon combined.

Sure, it was just drones, but when American missiles go deep into Russia, the gloves come off.

Depending upon where American weapons strike in Russia, I expect equivalent strikes on Washington and London. People in Washington and London are not being realistic. Explosives have a way of making people realistic.

Vlad decides to wake up the Pentagon Gay Blades or Sleepy Joe, he has the hypersonics to do it, and there’s nothing to stop it. Doesn’t have to be nuclear.

Russia has LET the bear be poked for decades. NATO is gonna get a bloody nose, looking down the barrel of a nuclear gun, which just fired a conventional rubber bullet at them to PROVE the gun works.

I mean, I’m warning people. If I was in Vlad’s shoes, and American missiles start going into the wrong places, it’s showtime. I’m not saying I like it. I’m saying he’s got the position on the chessboard to do it, and the whole damn world will CHEER when he does it.

MTG is pushing for decision on impeachment by Tomorrow. Fail that, then when the House returns from summer recess.

Full story with emphasis
emphasis mine.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) in the coming days will introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden under a privileged resolution.

By superseding House Republican leadership’s ability to control what comes to the House floor, Greene will launch articles of impeachment against Joe Biden, bypassing the usual process for bringing legislation to a full House vote.

Greene’s resolution will force House Republicans to vote on the measure.

“I don’t know what it’s going to take to get them to realize what fools Republicans look like in Congress for not moving forward on impeachment,” Greene exclusively told Breitbart News.

“Joe Biden is a criminal,” she said. “And as vice president of the United States, he committed crimes. He committed crimes, high crimes, and misdemeanors.”

“We now know on the Oversight Committee through our investigation that he took a $5 million bribe from a Ukrainian oligarch in order to get Victor Shokin fired — the prosecutor that was investigating Burisma,” she said.

“We have bank records after bank records after bank records showing that money was transferred, wire transferred in, from all kinds of countries all over the world, from all kinds of foreign nationals and businesses and state governments into the fake LLC, paying the Biden family members,” Greene continued.

“Everyone knows this,” she said. “But for some reason, Republicans in Congress can’t even start the process of impeachment. They can’t even begin it at this point.”

Greene told Breitbart News her privileged resolution posted on Congress.gov was the most viewed bill on the site all Wednesday.

But despite the grassroots interest in the bill, Greene said Republican members on the House Judiciary Committee do not support the impeachment effort.

“Everyone knows that Joe Biden is a criminal, and they [Republicans] will not move forward with impeachment anywhere in Judiciary, because you know what, you know what it is? There’s a couple of Republicans that sit on the Judiciary Committee, Ken Buck and [Tom] McClintock who don’t want to vote for impeachment.”

“Today, I addressed the entire [Republican] conference and told them that I could not disagree with them anymore on their stance on an impeachment because leadership is completely against [it],” she said. “They just aren’t there yet. And I told every single one of them, I could not disagree with them more.”

Greene’s difference of opinion does not appear to impact her relationship with House leadership. She told Breitbart News that she intends to keep the lines of communication open to hopefully change leadership’s mind.

“I support our leadership,” Greene said. “I also support Kevin McCarthy. I have all along, and I still support him. But I will have conversations with Kevin McCarthy and the rest of leadership before I file my privilege resolution.”

Greene’s resolution could be ready for a vote as soon as Friday. If the legislative language is not ready by then, she told Breitbart News it will be voted upon when members of Congress return to Washington, DC, in two weeks.

Loves how she’s naming names here. They can be worked over by the public over summer recess by the public.

MTG is naming the toads in the road. And I assume the spat was just about tactics and techniques.

U.S. Navy Heard What It Believed Was Titan Implosion Days Ago
https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-navy-detected-titan-sub-implosion-days-ago-6844cb12?mod=djemalertNEWS

A top secret military acoustic detection system designed to spot enemy submarines first heard what the U.S. Navy suspected was the Titan submersible implosion hours after the submersible began its voyage, officials involved in the search said.

The Navy began listening for the Titan almost as soon as the sub lost communications, according to a U.S. defense official. Shortly after its disappearance Sunday, the U.S. system detected what it suspected was the sound of an implosion near the debris site discovered Thursday and reported its findings to the Coast Guard commander on site, U.S. defense officials said.

While the Navy couldn’t say definitively the sound came from the Titan, the discovery played a role in narrowing the scope of the search for the vessel before its debris was discovered Thursday, the officials said.

“The U.S. Navy conducted an analysis of acoustic data and detected an anomaly consistent with an implosion or explosion in the general vicinity of where the Titan submersible was operating when communications were lost,” a senior U.S. Navy official told The Wall Street Journal in a statement. “While not definitive, this information was immediately shared with the Incident Commander to assist with the ongoing search and rescue mission.”

Officials decided “to continue our mission as a search and rescue and make every effort to save the lives on board,” the U.S. Navy statement said…

The U.S. is expected to conduct an investigation to try to determine whether the sound definitely came from the Titan, but what government entity would carry out the probe—and any time frame for completing it—remains unclear, a U.S. defense official said.

The U.S. developed its acoustic systems after World War II to detect enemy submarines operating in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans…

I’m posting something that I don’t agree with.

HOLY SHLIT

The WSJ is reporting the US Navy detected the Titan implosion on Sunday but Biden held the news until today’s whistleblower testimony on Hunter

The entire thing was a distraction op

_________

And Hunter’s plea deal too

They let everyone think those people were alive!

The WSJ article is the one I referenced here. It says nothing about Biden holding the news. It doesn’t mention Biden at all.

The facts are straightforward that the Navy heard what they thought was an explosion but that they weren’t sure, so they didn’t want to declare the people dead before they had all the facts and evidence. IMO that was a reasonable course of action. “The entire thing was a distraction op” is a made-up supposition presented as fact, which I have no respect for. News of an explosion, if they had been sure about it, would have also distracted from other news, including Hunter, for days. I’m not impressed with Poso on this one.

The previous article stated it………….now, it didn’t say Biden held the info back but somebody did.

“While the Navy couldn’t say definitively the sound came from the Titan, the discovery played a role in narrowing the scope of the search for the vessel before its debris was discovered Thursday, the officials said.”

Oh my g..

It is pure speculation that Biden told the Navy to withhold that information because of Hunter. It might be possible, but it is not fact. My objection is the reporting of it as fact when we don’t know for sure. This happens way too often in the conservative community, IMO.

I get that and totally agree with the all too often speculation but on this one (and all things) it’s not Biden making ANY decision imo. His handlers do it .
I thought the same thing when I read that they discovered the debris Thursday. Why not tell the public, tell us Friday, tell us Saturday, Sunday…it smells like distraction to me also.

Also gives some plausible reason why other rescue outfits from UK were unceremoniously barred from helping. just saying

TheseTruths

It very well might be distraction, and that can to be explored.

They are the people who kill living babies and sell them for body parts…

They will do ANYTHING if it fits their agenda… even if only for propaganda, brainwashing, or “motivation” purposes…..

I hear you. Without proof, assuming the sounds were an implosion might be fatal for survivors if it was not correct.
