clarice

jimmyk, Ive read (jihad watch) that DeBlasio has been allowing congregants into mosques. Elsewhere that the city had offered up 500k meals to Moslems for Iftar.

GUS

Clarice, it would occur to my sense of logic, that Priestaps, silence and lack of FULL COMMIE MEDIA, scuttlebutt regarding Priestap, in 4 years of this nonsense, would indicate, he's not a FULL COMMIE.

clarice

Sounds that way. I read that the notes were made after a meeting with Strozk and Page. Who said it was after a mtg with McCabe and Comey?

One thing that's been keeping me busy is a little research project I've cooked up that led me to look at the math behind the epidemiology models. There's a model that's been around for nearly 100 years called SIR, which groups people into Susceptible (S), Infected (I), or Recovered (R), and describes the spread with a simple system of equations. I presume this is well known to practitioners, but one thing that jumps out is that density matters a lot. I won't bore people with details but there's a threshold density below which the disease just fizzles out. Above that it spreads, but the higher the density the faster the spread, both up and down.

So this totally explains why NYC exploded, but is now well ahead of the rest of the US in going down the curve. I'm with Ext in not liking to look at a bunch of numbers, but here's a graphic I constructed that makes the point:

Clarice, I read about those meals for Muzzies. What pissed me off as much as anything is that in doing it he said something like: "It's a central tenet of Islam to feed the hungry." As if Christianity and Judaism don't have that too.

Next he'll be giving out 500,000 CDC-certified N95 burkas.

I seem to recall Sundance claiming Priestap was a white hat.

A couple of years ago his suspicion was:

Either Priestap is going to be the attempted fall-guy for the entire scheme.

-OR-

Bill Priestap saw the bus coming and is assisting the scheme investigators

Murphy caved.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/29/new-jersey-gov-phil-murphy-reopens-state-parks-and-golf-courses.html

He says he didn't cave. He caved, but said it was in-line with his "health" plan under the "mental health" component.

Personally, I think it was because of the weather forecast. We're expecting Saturday and Sunday to be sunny and in the 60's.

Heard on the local weather report that this will be the first April in 80 years without a day over 70 degrees. I think we're also near the record for most consecutive days below the expected "normal" temperature. I think we are at 16 days now.

GUS

Clarice, I saw a report, unfortunately, I'm too lazy and tired to look it back up just now, that was saying that it was after a meeting with COMEY and McCabe. Comey and McCabe...and Strzok as well, have stuck their necks out, to DENY DENY DENY. Comey, in particular, has gone ALL IN, on lying and trying to reinvent his pussy ass coward self.
It appears to be coming out NOW. The first scumbag who turns states or federal witness, will create an avalanche of plea bargains, and CASH APLENTY for TRIAL LAWYERS, who will bargain the pleas.

GUS,

Gov. Murphy has been captured by the health "experts." And he's a wuss.

I was watching his press conference again today as I woke up earlier than usual. They are talking about how to allocate and prioritize testing as more capacity comes on on-line. Nursing homes, than first responders, transit workers, jails and anybody else with a union or special interest group backing.

The ventilator situation here must be in good shape, or they expect to be able to get more if we them, because they've disinfected 100 ventilators and will ship them back to California where they came from. Thank you California. And they are sending another 50 ventilators they got from the feds to Massachusetts. Technically, they still belong to the feds, but the feds are onboard. I don't know whether they will ship them direct or hand them back to the feds for shipping. It's probably a paperwork thing. Regardless, they are headed up to where my sister lives.

deBlasio is term limited. He can't serve another consecutive term.

Yes, after Bloomberg there was a referendum that reduced the limit back to two terms (though you can run for a 3rd term after four years has passed). There was talk of Andrew Yang running. I don't know that much about him but I'm sure he's better than just about anyone else electable. I'd like to think as things get bad enough another Giuliani could be elected again, but I'll settle for a Yang.

So in all this talk of bayesian analysis you have to assume a value righr.

jim nj

Remember when I bitched that a pack of Pall Mall cigarettes went up just a bit more than a dollar in the last cigarette pricing round.

They took it out of the value-price range and put it in the near-premium price range. Rather than the usual nickel or dime price range.

Surprise. Today the price sank by $1.12 per pack. I'm guessing that the timing of the price increase didn't go well. Some resistance to the increase in price and Covid-19 probably tanked sales.

jim nj

jimmyk and narciso,

Most of northern NJ is part of the NYC metro area for census purposes. Most of the rest is part of the Philadelphia metro area.

The old line about NJ is that we are a beer keg tapped at both ends.

I can't find a quick reference, but a commonly accepted estimate is that 300,000 NJ residents are regular commuters to NYC. Most of them take buses or trains from the northern counties, but even the middle counties like Middlesex and Somerset, or the shore counties of Monmouth and Ocean have buses or trains.

In the summer they add additional trains and buses to the shore counties because some people summer there.

jim nj

narciso,

I liked Ed Koch. I didn't always agree with him, but even as one of his non-subjects he clearly loved the job.

He was what I would call a pragmatic liberal. He should have trademarked his "How'm I doin?" He was like a latter day Lagaurdia.

David Dinkins, his successor, was a freaking disaster. A pre-Obama. Rudy spent years cleaning up after him. Bloomberg mostly held the gains that Rudy achieved, except when he went "nanny" mode. deBlasio pissed almost all of that away.

JimNj, politicians can be educated, and even former business peeps. None of that YATTA, amounts to a hill of beans. This RIDICULOUS SHIT SHOW, has shown ZERO LEADERSHIP. A leader leads. A MANAGER, MANAGES and makes decisions. A leader doesn't weight in the balance, how the OUTCOME will reflect his or her leadership. He/She, does the right thing as best he/she can. A Republican, or more truthfully a CONSERVATIVE, makes decisions and choices that NEED TO BE MADE. Right or Wrong, these decisions are life and death calls. No hiding, no excuses, no complaining about the difficulty. A FATHER or MOTHER, has to act as a situation dictates. Smart logical grown ups, act based on their common sense, their morals, and their clear thinking ability. TRUMP HAS DONE SO FOR 3 PLUS years.

In answer to CH's question from the last thread re Beijing's attentions to Hong Kong;
Beijing stages crackdowns on Hong Kong’s opposition amid COVID-19 pandemic

and

While the world is distracted by coronavirus, China is clamping down on Hong Kong's pro-democracy campaigners.

I'd say the chances this came from bat soup or pangolin porridge are nil.
I'd rate it 100% certainty it came from the lab and 50/50 they released it accidentally/ intentionally.

They certainly behave that way, one interesting detail how they let some one go from wuhan to hong kong and back wasnt there a garrison outside the city ti prevent exactly that.

GUS

Narciso, Isikoff, at YAHOO, published RODHAM DOSSIER fake information, for the purposes of LEGITIMIZING, the INVESTIGATIONS into TRUMP and some of his low end campaign associates.
3 different sources all sourced from the same BULLSHIT, was the GOLD STANDARD for finding the LIES to be CREDIBLE. Unfortunately FULL COMMIE LIBTARDS always work the system, and find some sort of plausible deniability to attempt to clear them of legal culpability. FEED a couple of MFM willing accomplices the SET UP, they report it as if they verified it and verified it independently
and they feel free to LIE, and still keep themselves unassailable. Then the INDEPENDENT verifications, reach the standard for FISA WARRANT evidence. This CLOWN SHOW, is so easily dissemble, except for the DEEP STATE FOOLS, who get to judge the methods used.

GUS

Ig, I believe you are correct. I think the entire FLYNN issue, had 2 aspects. TRUMP had been set up and warned by BI-BARRY, that FLYNN BAD. Flynn had a career and life after he retired with 3 stars.
He DID do work for TURKEY. HOWEVER. When asked about it, after the FULL COMMIES set him up, and had TRUMP wondering. Flynn was hedging, or was not COMPLETELY TRUTHFUL to PENCE. When confronted with it. Flynn's mistake was not telling PENCE, hell yeah, I did work for TURKEY. I have expertise, and I was making a living after 30 years of being an HONORABLE MILITARY MAN.

On the meat-packing plants - it hasn't escaped my attention that they are all, or mostly all, unionized.

The most radical unions have been feeding stories to the press. The SEIU seems to be behind the Amazon warehouse stories. The NNU, I think that's what it's called, is the most radical nurse's union and seems to behind all the healthcare protestors.

It was only a matter of time before more traditional unions got in on the act.

Close the meat-packing plants and the employees get unemployment benefits and an extra $600 per week. More than they would get by staying on the job. So meat-packers should get $5-15 more per hour in "hazardous-duty" pay to make up for the difference.

I mean I admit that I hate modern-day unions based on my personal experience with one as a teenager, but it surprises me that more people don't recognize the tactics.

And Newspaper Guild members always seem eager to report on the travails of their fellow union members.

The Covid Tracking Project shows a huge jump in daily deaths today, to an all-time high of 2700. However, I think there's something odd going on.

I looked through all the states to see if I could figure out which caused the big increase. One that showed a very large change was Indiana. The total count increased from 901 yesterday to 1065 today: a 164 change. But when I looked at the screenshots from which the data were collected, the total deaths were 964, and the new deaths were 63. I went to Indiana's website, which showed the same numbers.

I didn't investigate other states to see if there were similar differences.

Also, while Wikipedia has a spike for today of 2452 deaths, yesterday's count was a much lower 1865 (compared to the CTP's 2198), so it almost certainly reflects delayed counts for the weekend which weren't reported yesterday; whereas the CTP had high counts for both yesterday and today.

jim nj

Back when I first applied for unemployment benefits, which was about 40 years ago, there used to be a "waiting" week.

I don't know if that still applies today. It was an attempt, I think, to prevent employers from gaming the system.

If you ran through your benefits that "waiting" week was paid at the end. If you were called back to work before then you were pissed at your employer for a lost week's worth of wages.

worldometer look see

Total US cases 1,064,572, new cases 28,807, %change +2.7%, new tests 230,442, %positive 12.5%, deaths 61,669, recovered 147,411.

NY still trending down mildly, NJ still stuck in a rut. My latest shows NJ with a 48.1% positive test rate. At the press conference the governor said 42%. We must be working off different numbers. Even 42% is too high. An indication that we are testing mostly the symptomatic. And the governor confirmed that.

recap
date all cases new cases %change #tests
4/26 987,322 26,426 +2.7% 5,441,079
4/27 1,010,507 23,185 +2.3% 5,593,495
4/28 1,035,765 25,258 +2.4% 5,795,728
4/29 1,064,572 28,807 +2.7% 6,026,170

Assuming my math is correct, over the last 3 days the testing increased 152,416, 202,233 and 230,442 tests.

That suggests that even without an increase in testing capacity we can do over 7 million tests next month. More than twice what we have done to date.

I'm still puzzling over the weirdness of 1-800-GOT-JUNK dump trucks being filled with stuff from apartments that got thrown over the balcony of the two apartments at my apartment building.

That may be why I woke up earlier than usual. Odd noises will do that.

Evictions in NJ are on hold. Even if they were happening the usual routine is to put the household goods on the curb or into storage.

It's so odd that I'm wondering if it's related to the CCP virus. I've never seen something like this before.

I'll ask my super about it, but I don't know if I'll get a straight answer from him.

My best guess at this point is that two people who lived in my building died of the CCP virus. Throwing the stuff off the balconies may have been better than bringing it out the usual way.

Normal move-outs involve the elevator or the stairs.

jim nj

GUS,

When you compare US tests and positive results the best analog is all of Europe in terms of a comparative size of population.

According to WHO

European Region 1,406,899 confirmed (21,750 new) 129,311 deaths (2,882 new)

Region of the Americas 1,213,088 confirmed (33,481 new), 62,404 deaths (2,193 new)

This is now two day old data, but all of the Americas are still behind Europe.

The Covid Tracking Project shows a huge jump in daily deaths today, to an all-time high of 2700. However, I think there's something odd going on.

Considering the way some (most? All?) states are reporting COVID as the cause of death using very sketchy rules, and sometimes without testing victims at all, I don’t see how we can possibly learn or know anything from the publicly reported numbers. And that’s without factoring in reporting delays (some of which are probably deliberate to further skew the numbers).

I think the machine would love it if Trump would pardon Flynn. They could claim legitimacy of the process and blame Trump for 'obstructing' justice. No chance Trump would do that, certainly not at this point.

Next best would be Barr stepping in. IANAL so no idea how that would work, but I doubt he'll jump in either.

At this point the machine has to clean up their own mess, and I'd have to think they want this to go away as quickly and quietly as possible. If the judge dismissing the case (however that works considering the guilty plea) is best way to achieve that then that's what'll happen. CNN will note it in passing and never mention the case again.

I saw a headline today in one of the U.K. newspapers that says Prince Harry told an interviewer he really misses being in the Army. LOL. How much must his marriage suck that he's missing the Army? I guess being nostalgic for his drill sergeant makes sense when one has been reduced to taking orders from a narcissistic shrew of a wife.

This is a long thread by Sundance (TheLastRefuge). Ir has all sorts of documents, notes of discussions, etc. covering hoe they plotted to entrap Flynn. Quite well done, I think.

Sounds better than anY explanation I have thought of:)

If 80% are immune, and 20% have already been infected, this movie is at “The End”.

Be great if true, but more likely the author of the AT piece is full of s*it.

Jimmy, thanks for your density graph last night. That 'splains a lot.

BTW, that pull quote the other day you thought was from YL2 was somebody else. I just used it to climb aboard my soapbox.

jimmyk - I think that's what 'flattening the curve' is suppose to look like. NYC basically didn't and the virus spread unabated. The rest of the country did and it's taking longer to find the peak.

From the antibody testing it looks like there's a huge number of very mild cases (8x - 12x actual positive tests). It looks like that's what saved NYC from a catastrophe. Of course how were we to know the virus would behave like that (ahem, thanks commies, for being so forthcoming with info)

Covering HOW, not hoe. SMH.

I think Flynn was the stingee, not the stinger.

Couldn't be clearer. Obama told Yates to take Flynn out. Yates told Comey, and Comey delivered. He even bragged about "sending a coupl'a guys over" to execute the sting.

Now Comey doesn't strike me as someone who'd go to jail protecting Yates and Obama. Furthermore, if he takes the fall his G-man persona is in tatters, so he has a decision to make.

Btw, is Pientka still in the witness protection program?

There is a thread postulating that those Chinese arrested trying to smuggle biological stuff OUT of the country were instead smuggling it IN, so as to spread it around.

If THAT is true, then we have suffered a true biological attack, which is an act of war.

Mel, I think that is good science.

Proven for the bubonic plague I think.

MM, I absolutely believe this was an act of war.

The problem is, what do we do about it? Our policy for decades has been to retaliate in kind for a WMD attack by an enemy state, and if China did this on purpose, it definitely falls under that category.

Do we use nuclear weapons in response? If we don't, we've admitted that our policy of deterrence is a complete sham, and we might as well unilaterally disarm and surrender. If we do, I don't see how that ends well for anybody.
