HELL—In a statement offered to reporters during a 15-minute recess from hell, dictator and mass murderer Joseph Stalin announced he now identifies as a strong woman of color in order to deflect criticism away from his socialist policies that killed millions.

"I now identify as a strong woman of color, and a lot of men simply can't handle that," Stalin said, sassily snapping his fingers in a "Z" formation. "

Somebody yesterday posted on the coronavirus OR which is the transmission rate for the virus.

Since they were working from a small sample data set the epidemiologists results varied, but didn't look too bad.

I presume that with each new day the data set will expand and the numbers will become more certain.

I went looking, but didn't find anything new. If anybody runs across an update please post it.

My current sense is that containment has failed.

The Trotskyites??? (Actually they prefer to be called “Trotskyists” but no matter,) Oh come on now, nobody has any reason to be afraid of a movement as discredited and puny as that one. They have zero shot at seizing power in this country.

Tell me, who are the ten (or five if you want) most powerful Trotskyites in this country today? I don’t mean someone who a la Hitchens was a youthful fanboy of Trotsky and I certainly do mean someone whose politics could be described as “leftist,” but an actual Trotskyist who believes in the dictatorship of the proletariat and all of that.

In any event, I will keep an ice hammer handy just in case b

Best raw numbers I can find:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51275896

Coronavirus: Death toll climbs to 106 as China tightens measures
The number of total confirmed cases in China rose to 4,515 as of 27 January, up from 2,835 a day earlier.

If my math is correct that is a 59% increase from one day to the next. And that count wouldn't include the full increase since these are diagnosed and confirmed cases.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/28/asia/wuhan-coronavirus-update-intl-hnk/index.html

CNN has similar less exact figures.

I left out a crucial “not” in my earlier post asking you to name names. I do NOT want to hear about someone just because their politics are to the left of yours or who could be considered in some sense a “leftist.”

I am asking you to name powerful people in this country today who subscribe to the Fourth International and all of that. I guess maybe the Socialist Workers Party is still in business and every once in a while the ANSWER organization sponsors something, but while more or less Trotskyist s they are decidedly not powerful.

Can you give me some names of individuals who are both Trotskyist and powerful in the USA Today?

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

The dashboard is showing a near logarithmic rate of growth in China. Add in the un-diagnosed cases and it would assume an even steeper slope.

The RO rate range yesterday of 1.6-5.0, centered on a probable 2.8 additional infections per infected person is probably too low. In my mind that doesn't match well with a 59% increase (by my math) in confirmed cases reported one day later.

Anything the epidemiologists model is going to understate the problem by using official numbers at this point.

The fatality rate is going to be too low also based on what I'm reading. The official numbers are only going to show confirmed deaths from the virus. Deaths from the virus attributed to other causes won't show up due to the testing lag and the inability to handle every patient that needs testing and/or care.

So I'm thinking the fatality rate will be much higher in China than elsewhere.

Assume a "golden standard" of care that would include a fast diagnosis and the best available treatment. That's the fatality rate in advanced countries outside of China that can rapidly identify and treat carriers of the virus.

My presumption is that China has already lost that race and will have great difficulty catching up.

So there won't be one fatality rate. There will be several.

jim nj

China has suggested that the virus is getting "stronger," which implies a change in condition, like a mutation. I think it is more likely that China has realized that the provinces and localities did the typical thing of hiding the problem, like they do with all of the other problems.

If the provinces and localities report financial problems as well as they do medical problems than China is already bankrupt and doesn't know it.

And if you are a fan of conspiracy theories this seems like a very drastic plan to prevent Hong Kong protestors from congregating in large masses.

https://breakingdefense.com/2020/01/us-builds-several-new-bases-in-iraq-near-iran/

Israeli experts say the U.S realized withdrawing from Iraq would leave policymakers and the military with greatly reduced influence in a region that has seen rapid and extensive Russian penetration into the region.

I have no idea if this is accurate, but if so, it might make sense to shift our forces onto friendlier territory in Iraqi Kurdistan.

The dashboard is showing a near logarithmic rate of growth in China.

Logarithmic? I'm guessing you mean exponential. Logarithmic is really, really slow growth. (It's the inverse of exponential.)

jim nj

MJW,

Really? I'll look it up. If so, I have not understood that for decades.

jim nj

MJW,

Touche. Thanks for the correction.

I took a summer-time math enrichment course in the 5th grade when my parents decided to switch me out of public school into a parochial school. I was something of a math whiz at the time. I could calculate in my head, without pencil or paper. Was such a concentrated course that I didn't learn anything new in math until the 10th grade.

As it happened the parochial school was on a par with the public schools as far as math went. Unfortunately, they were much more advanced in English instruction. And I was hopelessly behind.

MJW

They are often confused.

Exponential is like 1 after day one, 2 after day two, 4 after day three, 8 after day four, 16 after day five, etc. -- doubling each day. After a while, it increases very rapidly.

Logarithmic is like one after day 1, two after day 2, three after day 4, four after day 8, five after day 16, etc -- increasing by one each time the number of days doubles. It takes a long time to increase very much

(The exact numbers depend on the particular case, but the idea is always the same: with exponential growth, the number doubles after a certain length of time; with logarithmic growth, the number increases by a fixed amount each time the length of time doubles.)

jim nj

I think that may be why I hate the educational system.

You can learn four years of math in a concentrated summer course. Four years worth of teaching condensed into four weeks. And four years worth of math boredom after that.

I'd sit in math class after that and the answers would just pop in my head. I'd raise my hand and never get called on for the answer. In 8th grade I was so bored with it that I stopped raising my hand, after not being called on, and day dreamed. Then I got called on without my hand up. Huh? That was so unfair, raise your hand, no response, day dream, get called on for the embarrassment factor.

Okay, I can play this game, figure out the answer and stare at the ceiling, then wait to get called on for the answer and give it while continuing to stare at the ceiling.

James, please come up and work the problem on the blackboard. OK. Halfway to the blackboard - "Don't you need to bring your book?" No, got you you stinking biased nun. I didn't need the book the whole thing was in my head - the problem and the answer.

I wish I had taken an intensive English writing course that 5th grade summer instead of the math course. It took me years to catch up on my writing.

And, of course, I wasn't offered extra help to catch up with my writing. They were content to give below average grades.

MJW

I was something of a math whiz at the time. I could calculate in my head, without pencil or paper.

I've always been quite good at math (I say immodestly), but barely adequate with mental arithmetic. I wish I were better; it's a handy skill. Many famous mathematicians, such a Euler, were renowned for their abilities to perform mental calculations.

jim nj

Half a century later it still makes me boil.

You try to act like expected in class. Engaged, paying attention, yet never to be engaged.

And an adult teacher playing a gotcha game in a juvenile fashion. And, some of you may realize this, status was involved. She took me down, so I took her down.

I took three heartbeats looking at the ceiling before blurting out the answer and walking to the blackboard, without my book, to work the problem.

And every single one of my classmates knew I had set her up and taken her down.

She took my status. I took hers.

jim nj

MJW,

I used to get points deducted from my math tests. I'd write in the correct answer, but not the paper calculation. Doing that on paper would have slowed me down.

"Well if you don't show me the calculations I can't correct you." "Was the answer wrong?" "No." "Maybe I don't need your help with corrections."

I was a tweaky little kid.

jim nj

I found there are a lot of tricks and short-cuts in math. It's almost like using a slide rule.

Approximate the answer in your head and then refine it.

For instance, multiply 95 by some number. I would multiply by 100 in my head, then multiply 5 by that number and subtract the difference to arrive at the answer.

While short-cuts were very useful, also knowing, intuitively, wrong answers was even better. Get a wrong answer and I knew I had run the calculation incorrectly.

It took me a couple of tries to figure out the coronavirus percent increase. Years ago I would have hit it on the first try, but I haven't done that in a while. But the other results, intuitively, looked wrong.

Clarice, on why Schiff might want to ban facial recognition technology.

One, it gets rolled into data privacy, which is getting a big push from the left. (Especially from billionaires in CA not named Zuck).

Two, like guns and encryption, it is a powerful tool the panopticon wants exclusive control of. So ban them, except government use for national security. See the China, be the China.

https://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/the-giant-institution-vs-the-virus/

I'm going to speculate that authoritarian governments seeking to detach from the internet by creating national intranets may, ultimately, suffer from that isolation.

Yes, they may be able to impose group-think on their people, without external interference, but they will lose access to useful information that may run counter to their new norms.

In China I have to wonder if their censors stomped on information flows that might have helped define the problem they are now facing.

I forget the example, but there was a situation in the US some time ago wherein ordinary citizen's information, when aggregated on a platform I can't remember, was light-years ahead of officialdom.

A rant
https://victorygirlsblog.com/i-was-wrong-they-want-war/

Starts like this:
I admit it – I was wrong.

Last week I advised that the best course of action as the left attacks our rights is to keep a civil course, wow them with facts, decency, and knowledge and defend our rights with knowledge, passion, and eloquence.

I felt that we could win based on logic and rational discourse, but having watched the events of this week unfold in front of my eyes, I realize just how wrong I was.

I thought that after engaging with our political opponents en masse, peacefully stating our concerns, and rationally discussing the issues of due process and Second Amendment rights in Richmond, the Democrats would step away from their insane assault on our freedoms.

I was wrong.

Jim, selling your data is how the Silicon Valley people “monetize” everything they do. It is more surprising when they don’t. Thus the push for “privacy” laws which they evade with a click through agreement.

“there never really was "free" software”

True, obviously. Though there are still pockets of folks who do this as a hobby of sorts.

My problem with the Avast people is they did probably the “yuckiest” thing possible short of hijacking the machine for their use, and overtly avoided telling their users about it.

Why not have the first dialog of the installer say: “We think this is excellent malware protection software that will help you. We need to pay for its development somehow. So this software will record your activities on this computer, send the data to us, and we will sell it. We will remove any obviously identifying information, but this does not guarantee your anonymity. Do you want to continue?”

I suspect surprising numbers of people would say “yes”.

MissMarple2

It occurs to me that one of the reasons President Trump has these rallies is to let us know we are not alone.

The media spends a fair amount of time portraying his supporters as stupid, uneducated, racist outcasts that no one of any value would wish to be around. Rallies let you see how many supporters there are and (if you attend) meet other Trump supporters.

When you feel like you are not alone, it gives you backbone and courage. (Note the transformation of Kevin McCarthy.)

I doubt I get to go to another rally, as one held here this year would probably have to be downtown or in one of the big arenas at IU or Purdue. I don't have it in me to camp out all night. I am VERY glad I got to attend the one I did and heartily recommend going if you can. I will be watching the one in New Jersey tonight, and I bet it will be epic.

Regarding all this talk of Red vs Blue battles in the streets, I think there's no chance of it, there's too many girly men on the left. Right believes in American values, left believes in nothing, I'll take the believers any day.

The left is not stronger today, they're just crazier; they had eight years of Obama to burrow into government, but eight years of Trump should undo most of it (but what is the matter with DJT, anyway, why didn't he fire all these lefty goobers when he took office?).

The GOOD news, the really really good news that should clear the ledge of naysayers and which portends the actual saving of America, is that Donald J Trump is making inroads into voting groups where Republicans have had no prior success. It's been a given for years, relished by the left and feared by the right, that an ever-increasing percentage of non-white voters will result in more Democrat victories and uber-Statism. The only-est way to avoid that fate for the country is to appeal to blacks and Latinos and every other "group" - not by pandering to them, but by demonstrating top them what a great America looks like, and how they and their families can be part of it. In places far from the Washington noise, all sorts of voters are seeing that demonstration of American greatness, thanks to Trump. The left is powerless.

“hobby of sorts”

One example that comes to mind that I use is “Password Safe”. Bruce Schneier and some volunteers wrote a password manager that is not pretty, but does what it needs to do reasonably easily, and has strong encryption. Totally free. No data collection. No ads. Let’s me use a different, very long and randomly generated password for each site. Has a mouse mode that allows you to avoid any keyloggers when entering your password into the tool.

Given the sheer number of password-protected sites I need to access (hundreds), I’d have a very hard time without it.

Catching up. Re: likelihood of armed conflict, and theo's posItion. A day or two ago, someone asked what contact he has and how much with other people who are not progs in his life, and speculated it was limited. I have not seen a response.
His strong position that it would NOT be "our side" firing causes me to think he does not have much interaction with "regular people" ;-) in his day to day.
I never hear anyone advocate for violence; rather, I hear a deep sadness expressed when people comment with increasing frequency that if things do not change, it is very likely to be the result. I do believe even Barack Obama gets that things have gone far too far, far too fast from recent statements of his.
Elective abortion til delivery; men in little girl's locker rooms; denying biological sex; Catholic universities being told they owe reparations because of the intrinsic evil of their religious principles.
I agree--increasingly restrictive gun laws (as we are seeing in VA) has the greatest potential to be the match tossed on the tinder.

Live War Room with Bannon.

The American Revolution was MORE than a few decades in the making. And as the buildup became cacaphonous the public was split. The side which decided to act militarily did so knowing full well King George would not stop at the thought of "violence": total war ensued.

Not as criticism of his position, but as an endorsement of Ignatz' view, however stated, it is just as principled and- therefore worthy- important a calculation as valuing restraint.

when listening to Starr-Dersh-et al yesterday (before reading the IGTHEO discussion) they drove home to me what Schiff and the Cabal are willing to destroy. i would sign on for house-to-house military action to root out those barbarians who have demonstrated: this is not a negotiation.

even a casual reading of histories brings into view the murderousness of legislative tyranny. what has also been amply demonstrated is the subjects' acquiescence to such tyranny with presumptions about the "better angels of our nature."

People wonder, each day, what made the stock market go up or down that day. Lots of people have explanations at the ready, no matter what's going on. Crazy Bernie now clearly leads in the Dem nomination battle, opening up a new and perfectly reasonable "real reason" for the recent hesitation in the market.

Legislatures empowered elected tyrants in Italy and Germany. Russia was the outlier.

Be interesting to see how this all pans out.

If a couple of lab workers get dragged out back and get 7.62x39 implants, that would be a clue.

I think watching the "Princes" is more important.

So TRUMP sets o,.ut to drain the SWAMP, he is attacked viciously over and over by the entire ESTABLISHMENT. The FULL COMMIE ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA ridicules the notion of DEEP STATE. Despite, FBI, CIA, and intel agencies spying on the TRUMP CAMPAIGN and associates. NO ONE HAS BEEN CALLED TO TASK. NOT A FUCKING SOUL. Then the RANCID SWAMP CONGRESS ATTACKS TRUMP. He is then investigated for over 2 years and found not to have done ANYTHING WRONG. They then IMPEACH HIM.
Now as we go down the TRIAL ROAD, the NON-EXISTANT DEEP STATE, leaks or claims that John Bolton had info implicating TRUMP in nonsense.

I thought there was no deep state.

GUS, the deep state is probably providing protection for the Vindman bros.

What reason could possibly exist for Trump not to fire Vindman Bros, et al, after acquittal? And reverse Obama's lefty-implants-in-perpetuity policies re: seeding civil service jobs? Trump needs to clean out the stables.

The Trotskyites??? (Actually they prefer to be called “Trotskyists” but no matter,) Oh come on now, nobody has any reason to be afraid of a movement as discredited and puny as that one. They have zero shot at seizing power in this country.--

There always comes a point, if you stay in a conversation with Theo long enough, where you have to ask yourself whether he is high-functioning autistic, purposely obtuse or as Mel says, a concern troll.
Take your pic or mix and match.

i wasn't here for the brouhaha inspired by The School Marm who believes that i insulted her with my comment "Sweet.Screaming.Jesus." in response to her "thought" which, more or less went something like this(in a discussion re LE, backdoor access to phones, and privacy): "i have nothing to hide they can search my phone."

that "thought" is outrageous on its pasty face. my measured retort meant as much. that "thought" is an INSULT to the priciples of free Americans. some Germans gloated over not having their homes and businesses marked (doxxed) by the Reich under similar fashion "nothing to hide." similar by degree.
