To me Operation Legend is simply a magician trick to get you to watch the wrong hand and conclude the Rule of Law is alive and well.

Or what Hitchcock called a “macguffin.” Like the Bell Curve, one’s familiarity with this plot device term will allow you to realize just how ubiquitous it is in all sorts of real-life situations.

Oh, and...well, you know. 😉

This is the article Narcisco 11:52AM points to.

Seems interesting when you are interested in the attack on the US by all means that is going on now.

All these quantum questions seem like the reverse of the shortcomings of Newtonian physics.
Newtonian physics work quite well at the normal, physical, non subatomic level. Because of that it was tried desperately to fit it to the subatomic world.
Now that the quantum world is better understood the same bonehead mistake is being made in reverse by trying to imply or even prove that quantum uncertainties therefore apply to trees falling in the woods, actual cats not just theoretical ones and free will and reality itself.
It's one of those ideas one has to have a PhD to be stupid enough to believe.

In this extremely important video from the Schiller Institute conference which concluded September 6th, former Virginia State Senator and Judge Advocate General Richard Black finds that those retired generals, now active against Donald Trump are in violation of Section 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. He names the names and says what the President should order Secretary of Defense Mark Esper to do if Esper doesn't do it himself.

You ought to add Clarice's column for a good weekly summary. It posts on Sunday, at American Thinker.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Ig may disagree but these dueling headlines are powerful.--

First, studies are ambiguous on whether beetle killed trees are actually worse or better as far as promoting wildfires. Intuitively you would think they would be better at promoting wildfire but after the first year they lose their needles which are one of the prime ways fires spread as they are launched into the air ahead of the fire. The old dead wood does burn intensely hot [that's why that pic of the Creek Fire I posted looked like an A-bomb] in a way a living tree does not so overall it is probably a bit of a wash.
Second, there is no market for those dead trees and no market for even green ones in significant enough numbers to make much difference.
It's not that different policies won't in the end work. But it took decades of inattention and most importantly intense fire suppression to get to where we are.
Consequently it will take decades of expensive attention to logging, thinning, clearing and prescribed burning and sorry to say, large wildfires to retame the monster that has been created.
As an instance of how the large wildfires are helping, the El Dorado fire in Riverside county is bound on its southeast edge because it has run into the Apple fire from earlier this year.
And right now in the county to the north of mine, to the west of Tahoe, a fire that started yesterday is burning into the fire scar from the King fire from about 5 years ago, so its potential to grow is greatly reduced.

Thats what im here for.

Margo Cleveland: We are about one more set of bad Latino polling numbers before the Biden campaign starts making Joe calling himself José.

James D.

So can anyone shed any light on the news I’m seeing today about Bob Woodward’s new book?

I assume that Woodward is lying, because that’s what he does. But supposedly there are hours of tapes of interviews between Woodward and Trump. I honesty can’t believe Trump would have sat down with a lying bag of trash like a Woodward, and if he did, it was by far the stupidest thing he has ever done.

Captain Hate

So Nevada's Governor has cancelled two MAGA rallies.

James D.

Any reason given, CH? Was it bogus health concerns, or simply because he’s a commie?

I'm watching the briefing. I've never seen such desperate reporters in my lifetime. The entire briefing is: "because of what Trump said to woodward, it is clear he was misleading the public." Kayleigh is well prepared.

Bogus health concerns.

About woodstein, the comedian had the right idea, first serving as mark felts stenographer, then his rich fantasy life with bill casey. The one time he was affirmatively true they painted him as senile

Two bits of long-overdue good news from NYC:

1. Indoor restaurant dining will finally come back on 9/30, in time for cooler weather (though too late for thousands of failed businesses).
https://www.wsj.com/articles/new-york-city-to-resume-indoor-dining-at-restaurants-11599672105

2. The hotels-turned-homeless-shelters near us will cease being homeless shelters by the end of the month. Rumor has it that bigshot attorney Randy Mastro (hired by a local citizens group) threatened to expose the corrupt sweetheart deal DeBlasio made with the hotel owner (just coincidentally a big financier of DeBlasio's campaigns).

...keep in mind that the Oxford vaccine (like the other viral-vector candidates) is in fact a virus, a re-engineered chimpanzee adenovirus in this case, whose entire mode of action is to infect cells in the body.
So any guesses about what the safety profile for infection from a re-engineered chimpanzee adenovirus will turn out to be when compared to infection by the plain old Covid-19 virus that’s out in the wild?

Especially the safety profile broken down by age cohort?

Given how safe the virus is for kids, the engineered virus could well be more dangerous.

Jane

Now I’m watching Biden. He’s reading well, but the stuff he’s saying is mind blowing. He said before the pandemic, Trump was the worst jobs President in history. ‘He rewards people who send jobs overseas” and on and on. The only applause was about 4 people who clapped when he praised Gov Whitmore ( is that her name?). Repeating the Atlantic lies. Now praising what a great job he and Obama did on the economy. Does he think everyone slept thru the last 4 years?

Don’t know how many people are there, but sheesh!

Biden will oppose a tax penalty on companies who make their goods overseas 10%. No more tax deductions for companies who make jobs overseas. 10% tax credit for companies who invest in the US.

Oops he’s starting to babble. Says Trump rewards companies for making things overseas.

He’s all about “buy American” because Trump doesn’t care about that.

I kid you not

Get the tranq gun.

I only know luciferase as the enzyme that makes a bioluminescent reporter in the presence of luciferin (it may well use other substrates too). It is responsible for the glow of fireflies.

I've no idea why it would be in a vaccine, but it should be harmless.

Narciso

Dont let me go back there.

This makes schiff tobolowsky doesnt it

Neo

Seems like it's time for a pool to determine just how Team Joe Biden will opt out of the debates.

I can't see Joe going 30 minutes. What is the usual length ? .. 90, 120 minutes.

The first presidential debate is planned for Tuesday, Sept. 29 in Cleveland.
They will be reaching for an out.
Best guess ... BLM/Antifa will descend on Cleveland a night or two before debate.

Jack is Back!

All I know is that the Trump campaign must be laughing their ass off everytime there is one of those BlM/Antifa protests. I mee an why spend money on ads when all you have to do is UTube it?

MissMarple2

Neo,

That is a good guess.

henry

Cooked Kung Flu surge in Cleveland that week, blamed on Sturgis bike week.

Captain Hate

There never was going to be a debate. Notre Dame was smart enough to realize that and thought "what place can we find dumb enough to eat all the preparation costs because of an overwhelmingly insecure need for national attention?" And Crewe responded to the Call of the Derp.

You know, the great thing about watching the US Open is seeing 2 Russkies fight it out for a place in the Semis.

No Yanks left, natch.

Narciso

Yes they grabbed the big bowl of paste.

henry

Yeah... no fact check though

@rebrowne75

Former Vice President Biden said today that more than 6,000 members of the US military have died due to the coronavirus. The actual number is seven according to the @DeptofDefense

Narciso

They just need to taze him for his own good.

Porchlight

Biden will just say he meant retired/former military. That number is probably not correct either.

peter

Good one, henry.
A rare east coast earthquake in New Jersey last night. 3 something on the Richter, which is not impressive to some of you folks. In Freehold. I was disappointed it wasn't in Cheesequake, which is only 20 miles away.

Biden needs to have Gene Wilder and Marty Feldman install a new brain under his plugs. At this point, Abby Normal would be an improvement.

Frankly, it makes me wonder if his polls are equally inflated.

Okay. Here’s the JoeMentia Debate Dropout Date Pool:

Jump in!

henry

March 17, 2021. The Irish pub won’t put up with his going Tank Abrams malarkey.

Boy do we have a boatload of snow here on the front range in Colorado.

It will have mostly melted by Saturday though.

Yeah henry, Howie Carr just played the audio.
Why on earth did he talk to Woodward?
We've been packing hubby's Jeep today, it will go on the truck carrier on Monday.

Dave (in MA): Sept. 19

Jump in!

Is the prize the same as last time?

Marlene

Okay lyle,I'll take Sept. 30. Biden will debate Trump on the 29th and it will be a disaster. On Sept. 30 he will drop out.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Sept 20 Exposure to Covid and 2 week mandatory quarantine.

Narciso

Unless you shoot him (theres a thought) woodward is a fixture, now after the last one i would have averred.

hrtshpdbox

Okay lyle,I'll take Sept. 30.

That's the winner.

CNN says Trump talked to Woodward because he'd wanted to talk to him for his book two years ago (where aides apparently didn't relay Woodward's interview request), and didn't want to miss a second chance to have a hand in the project and, he hoped, make himself look better as a result of it.
