Got a lot of rain, but my trees were pre-diastered so I was spared the rest.

Partly cloudy here and in the 70's. Amazing weather for the Midwest in August, when it's usually 90 degrees with 95% humidity.

The big news from the New York AG is that she has filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association, seeking to dissolve it for not using their money charitably.

Leftists on Twitter are crushed, as they were SURE this was going to GET TRUMP!!

Hope it gets better soon TM! Is it hot up there?

NY AG James just declared that she will suing to dissolve the NRA for self-dealing. foxnews.com/politics/new-y… Previously, James declared the NRA a "terrorist organization." It is hard not to see this as a political agenda in search of a legal rationale. jonathanturley.org/2019/09/08/ter…

Will never forget the convoys of power trucks from as far away as Florida as we drove up the 95 right after Hurricane Gloria hit. It is amazing what can happen when the professionals know what they are doing.

Missed the discussion last night re the Beirut explosion. One of the video clips buried deep in one of the tweets was taken from a car on an elevated highway that I would estimate was about a mile or so from ground zero. They were obviously recording the initial column of fire. When the Big Bang happened, the shockwave was almost instantaneous, not ~5 seconds later. It shattered the glass and fired off the side airbag. Mach 5?

Extraneus

It is hard not to see this as a political agenda in search of a legal rationale.

See the McCloskeys and many more examples going back to Tom DeLay, and this will be the rule going forward. Whether we like it or not, there's a war on, they no longer feel restrained, and they have enough judges to back them up.

Anyone not in good graces with the left needs to get out of leftist-run areas. It's surprising that the NRA is a NY entity. Let this be a warning to all other conservative organizations: get out of left-controlled areas now.

The NRA lawsuit is just more harrassment from Soros DA's and the like, all just part of "resist".

I don't doubt for a minute that should DJT not be elected president in November, this kind of harrassment will only ramp up. Is there any doubt that Dems would prosecute him and his family relentlessly for a myriad of charges until something sticks. GOPe will sit by idly and protect their six.

Barbara

I opened Facebook to find a notice that they had removed a post that I had "Liked" because the WHO says it isn't true. I can't even remember the post or article, and of course since it's been deemed untrue by the WHO I'll never find out what it was that I'm not supposed to know. Imagine that happening in a free society.

Two key things: 1) the WHO with its less than stellar record determines what can be posted on Facebook; 2) This seems like a trial test. I expect that Facebook will increase the policing of its precious pages. COVID-19 has given these Internet gurus, broadcasting and government an interesting test case on how to manipulate the masses.

Update on dad-

I noticed his hands, fingers, and under his fingernails were deep purple yesterday. We are not supposed to touch the residents, but as I had mentioned I had taken stuffed pilot bear and a biplane and gotten permission to put the bear in his lap. Retrieving it was the perfect stealth way to check the temp of his hands. Cold.

He has also lost another 10 pounds in the last two weeks despite eating, which my mom doesn't understand. She does get that if I tell her it is called cachexia and happens in alzheimers as well as cancer and has been discussed all over the world, ESPECIALLY by at-home caregivers who are mystified as they know for sure what is being consumed that I can prove it.

I think she would rather blame the facility for not looking out for him than facing the inevitability of a process that cannot be stopped. I am sharing in case anyone else is in a similar situation during these lockdowns. We are lucky his facility has an outdoor covered patio where loved ones can be visited without anyone actually entering facility or residents leaving.

If anyone has any experience with timing after limbs start to go purple, even though the color drained after hospice massaged his hands. Mom thought it was a new development and it had been 2 weeks since I saw him and he said Hi to Pat the Bunny. Apparently though my brother noticed it last week and just didn't want to alarm my mom.

Growing up in New Canaan, we had many blackouts. Usually during ice storms. One I remember lasted for 5 days. We never left home, we just muddled through. By the way, if your grand children become interested in horses, below is a real hidden gem located in NC. I learned to ride there.

This "STORM" in CATCHERS MITT NY.......was it a cat 5 Hurricane like Hurricane Sandy????
Remember that "Hurricane" that was a TROPICAL STORM, not a hurricane? HYPE-O-RAMA.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Do we have any actual stats on how lethal the surge in positive cases has been or how serious the hospitalizations are now?--

I'm not doing any deep dives but as I stated before, positive tests AKA 'cases' peaked in the US in mid July at more than double the April peak. Deaths appear to have peaked Aug 1st at about half the prior April peak.
Hospitalizations peaked around July 11th, much lower than the previous peak in April.

Anyway, plenty of serious outages in the East.

sandy was a strong cat 3 when it was smacking around the carribean then weakened to a cat 1 by the time it hit nj. it was certainly massive and a rain maker but nj corruption and incompetence was the bigger disaster.

take a look at some pictures of kendell fl after andrew to see what hurricanes can actually do.

About outages: come to think of it, it's not really just the East. Last year and this, for example, our PG&E has told us to prepare for outages of up to a week during fire season.
Hasn't happened yet but could at any time.

Maybe we'll get Biden in November and "progress" from electricity to candles ...

Much of my neighborhood is still without power. Some very large, very old trees got knocked down. Wasn't that big a storm; moved through quickly but there were some very intense gusts that did a lot of damage. I am not really sure what can be done to prevent disruptions, short of putting all power lines underground.

Facebook employees are worried about whether Trump would use the social network to invalidate the results of the 2020 presidential election. They want Zuckerberg to answer their question about it at today's all-hands meeting which is happening right now.

buzzfeednews.com/article/craigs…

Our story also outlines employee concerns that the co is giving preferential treatment to right-wing pages and publishers. In some cases, employees on internal forums said that Facebook's policy team got involved to reduce fact-check penalties. buzzfeednews.com/article/craigs…

Some examples. A FB employee found Joel Kaplan, the co's VP of public policy, personally flagged a fact check of a Charlie Kirk Instagram post for resolution.

In another case, a partner manager for PragerU argued the page should not be factchecked because it ran a lot of ads.


Zuckerberg is currently talking at the all-hands meeting right now about leaks.

"Part of that culture means we need to take a pretty heavy hand when people violate that trust," he says, threatening to fire leakers. He said someone was already fired for leaking this week.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Not to take utilities off the hook but with all the clean energy nuisances to put up with the maintenance schedule of the distribution system is always the easiest to cut.--

I remember reading a few weeks ago that the dumbass green power MANDATES PG&E was forced to "invest" in not only caused our power to cost twice as much, or more, as neighboring states it also squeezed the maintenance budget until it was about a 30-1 ratio.
That's effin prog coercion all over; sky high rates, crappy service and product, perverse incentives, unintended consequences and even worse intended ones and terrible maintenance and in this case with deadly consequences. And when their choices to coerce the private sector blow up, they pretend they're the enforcers to protect the people from the greedy old capitalists and robber barons and murderers.
They always deliver the worst of all possible worlds and yet they sucker enough people to keep hanging around.
I'm thinking I may replace Edmund Burke, George Washington and Von Mises` as my political and economic role models and just advocate the Hulagu Khan route from now on.

As you know, the cultural civil wars have changed many of our habits. I, for example, have stopped watching major league baseball. I also have stopped reading Jalopnik, a website of goofy New York based car enthusiasts, because they accused the owner of another car buff website called Petrolicious, of being a racist. His crime? He posted on Facebook his opinion that BLM was a domestic terrorist organization. Petrolicious is a pretty cool site, so I haven't missed Jalopnik at all. However, I learned that the Petrolicious founder is now a victim of cancel culture and was forced to sell the website. You can read about it here.

I get the impression, though, that PG&E and other utilities are hardly putting up much of a protest, and seem in fact to be enthusiastic masochists, similar to the car manufacturers. So I can't feel to sorry for them. It's like they're all afraid of the mob.

The Infamous Ignatz

The funny thing is the NRA is by almost all standards the most conciliatory and least junkyard doggy of the 2nd amendment orgs.
If that dingbat NY AG did succeed in dissolving the NRA she would like even less what would fill the vacuum.
In fact, not a few of the other orgs and gunowners agree with her criticism that it largely exists as a lavish club for the fossils inhabiting its upper echelons. That's what led to the Cincinnati revolt in the 70s, but eventually the new boss met the old boss in the mirror.

The Infamous Ignatz

--It's like they're all afraid of the mob.--

They are so much at the mercy of the state mob of regulators and mandates and rate setters that they are only nominally quasi-private. They have no choice.

Good afternoon! We haven't lost power here in the woods during storms,because there is a huge substation on the main road to support the nearby chip mills. The yards are full of logs this summer,so the lack of paper products should ease up. :) PPE takes priority over Lysol/Clorox wipes,that shortage might continue. The main road was paved earlier this summer,so the logging trucks going into the yards have a super speedway to drive on,I keep my distance!

Too much gas in it to see what's happening. He told me not to be too optimistic, and I told him I got there when the 3rd surgery didn't work. I'll see him next week so he may be able to see the macular, maybe not. He's going to VT on vacation so it's a week early. I'm not expecting anything. Just want it to be over.

Top Democrats contemplate civil war if Biden loses

‘Mr Podesta, playing Mr Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

‘In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr Trump took office as planned.’

...

‘The Biden campaign encouraged Western states, particularly California but also Oregon and Washington and collectively known as “Cascadia” to secede from the union unless Congressional Republicans agreed to a set of structural reforms to fix our democratic system to ensure majority rule. With advice from President Obama, the Biden Campaign submitted a proposal to 1) give statehood to Washington, DC and Puerto Rico; 2) divide California into five states to more accurately represent the population in the Senate; 3) require Supreme Court Justices retire at 70; and 4) eliminate the Electoral College, to ensure the candidate who wins the popular vote…’

...

‘One of the most consequential moves was that Team Biden on January 6 provoked a breakdown in the joint session of Congress by getting the House of Representatives to agree to award the presidency to Biden (based on the alternative pro-Biden submissions sent by pro-Biden governors.) Pence and the GOP refused to accept this, declaring instead that Trump was re-elected under the Constitution because of his Electoral College victory. This partisan division remained unresolved because neither side backed down, and January 20 arrived without a single president-elect entitled to be Commander-in-Chief after noon that day. It was unclear what the military would do in this situation.’

I know we had already discussed this a bit, but does anyone think they're just kidding?

Ig, thanks for the comment about case peaks etc.

Before the surge, I was very good at dismissing the whole thing as a nothing burger except for the well know risk groups. As others said "Very serious for some; not at all for virtually everybody else".

That line was gathering steam, so all of a sudden it was drowned about my Oh NO...cases are skyrocketing.

If my previous conclusion that it is a nothing burger (except for those groups), then I continue to say "So F*king What?" Until it burns as far though the population as it will, this will not end. So let it burn, baby.

Well now this is an interesting little bit of history:

CDC Director Robert Redfield: the letter that should have destroyed his career

Long before Robert Redfield ascended to the CDC directorship, and also assumed a key post on the White House COVID Task Force, he was a US Army researcher working on an AIDS vaccine.

He ran into a great deal of trouble. His career was almost derailed. The Army finally saved him, through what some investigators assert was a complete whitewash.

Ext "...‘In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr Trump took office as planned.’..."

Sounds like Br'er Rabbit and the Brier Patch to me.

Melinda

The money quote::

"“We are writing to request that your Subcommittee hold a hearing, as soon as possible, to investigate charges of grave impropriety committed by U.S. Department of Defense’ AIDS researchers. We have obtained Internal memoranda, not previously made public, from the Department of Defense that allege a systematic pattern of data manipulation, inappropriate statistical analyses and misleading data presentation by Army researchers in an apparent attempt to promote the usefulness of the GP160 AIDS vaccine…The Phase I and Phase II studies in which this alleged misconduct occurred were conducted by researchers at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR), led by Lt. Col. Robert Redfield, M.D., Chief of the Department of Retroviral Research, and misleading results from these trials were reported in…the New England Journal of Medicine in June 1991, the Journal AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses in June 1992 and the annual International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam in July 1992. In addition, overstated conclusions have been presented on two occasions at hearings before your Subcommittee."
