I'm more optimistic than I was on my birthday in 2016. Trump's gonna win this big and it will be like the Berlin wall fell again.

Dave (in MA)

Captain, I enjoyed it the Lacy/Rudd, too.

Vindman was promoted to full colonel. He resigned, supposedly, because he would no longer be allowed to work in his specialty - Ukraine and Russia.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Have to ask this question;
Is unconditional love and support of your world champion punk ass son snorting blow off one hooker's ass while another hooker helps out, um, presidential?

And another;
Will Hunter get to snort blow off a hooker's ass in the Lincoln Bedroom? Cuz that doesn't seem too presidential either, somehow.

One more;
Will the dildos the snortee assed hooker used on Hunter be repurposed as ornaments on the WH Christmas Tree?

The next 17 days may;
1. Be pretty entertaining, and;
2. Kill Joe Biden. Or at least make him wish he was dead.

clarice

dave, that is not Hunter. It is a disinfo campaign by leftist groups--akin to the pizzagate crap to discredit those who are attacking Hunter. Do not fall for it. Yaacov Aplebaum uncovered the plot earlier today,

Captain Hate

Dave,

I used to know a guy who was irritating in just about every way, and when he died suddenly I was sooooo glad I didn't have to go through the turmoil of getting any of my shit back, who was an incredible Lacy fan. He had the largest collection of his music of anyone I knew, including stuff he didn't like (he and I used to argue incessantly about Lacy's wife, Irene Aebi, and he wasn't the only one including at least one horn player whom I'm pretty sure took lessons from Lacy). Lacy understood Monk as well as anyone plus played with Cecil Taylor.

Rudd was a great guy and a good trombone player but his stuff with Lacy is his primo stuff because he stayed focused and didn't turn into a Eugene Chadbourne level goof. He had one release on Eminem that I absolutely hated, while others including people whose opinions I respect said otherwise. Sorry but I'm not getting in line over something like that. But anything he did with Lacy is good.

That Mollie Hemingway thread has a woman named Alyson Frost, an apparent Trump supporter, who seemingly doesn't note the irony in the old joke that if something is on the internet it must be true, because when she posted the Hunter Biden story on FB a bunch of people said it's debunked, and that was good enough for her.

Well, Biden said Antifa was debunked.

My last reminisce of the old days and computers: we spent about $10k on long distance phone calls between Cowlumbus and Karratha Western Australia doing daily code updates for our first system down under. The 12 hr time change worked great. Guys at home worked all day on code changes, then I wake up in the hotel room and dial up with my trusty 1200 baud modem and download the files for my trusty prom burner, go out to the site and swap chips and watch it run all day making notes on what still needs fixing and then come back and call to let them know what still needs fixing for the next day.

Feels like the pony express looking back now.

I see Italy is reporting almost twice as many "cases" per day as they did at the peak last spring, and "cases" have been going up for 2.5 months.

OTOH, deaths are a little over one tenth what they were at the peak last spring.
100% more cases and yet 10% of the old numbers of dead.
Better lock it all down again.

Trump's gonna win this big and it will be like the Berlin wall fell again.

I like that, Captain. I think that most of the world, except the usual suspects, will rejoice.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

France has even more perverse numbers. They are now reporting 4 times as many new cases per day and yet their daily deaths are around 1/10th of what they were in the spring.

Barbara

When I went in for the Covid test, my sister said, "Now, you're going to be listed as a 'case' even though it's negative." I suppose that's true.

I'd really like to know the actual number of cases, but I'm not interested in any more long-winded explanations from people like Dr. Birx.

Forget who McTurtle can get confirmed, Trump, and the country, would be better off with interim FBI and CIA chiefs who can be trusted than with those two bums, Haspell and Wray.
We'd be better off with no director of either than those crooked cretins.

Saw one of those guys drop one of his boxes. Thought he was going to cry.
I dated a paleontologist back in college whose data was on a box of cards. He showed me the trick of drawing a diagonal line with a marker across the top of the deck. A lot easier to get them back in order after a drop!

How come the FBI spent more time on Bubba Wallace’s garage door pull than they did on Hunter Biden’s laptop?

“drawing a diagonal line with a marker across the top of the deck”

Lesson frequently learned the hard way.

For manageable-sized FORTRAN decks, type a sequence number out in the unused columns 73-80. Drop it and it’s a simple matter of asking to borrow a sorter for a few minutes ;). Much bigger than that and yeah, I used that marker method.

I’m finding myself recalling those “good old days” more often lately. I wonder why?

Another Bob

Had the opportunity to learn to use all that sort of “unit record equipment”.

Also became pretty adept at quickly mounting tapes on those old 2401 drives that had the vacuum columns. Thought my career might be computer operator.

Happily, I stuck with software. (A cousin was an op, that career didn’t last.)

Hunter Becomes the Hunted
By Clarice Feldman

Pinandpuller

I discovered the FBI’s new facility in Nashville tonight on Elm Hill Pike.

Well, it’s not like they were hiding it or anything. It’s new to me, though.

I didn’t notice any White Supremacist sticky traps out front but it was kind of dark.

Barbara

“He’s in trouble, there’s no question. By every traditional measuring stick, this looks like a Biden landslide,” said Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for President George W. Bush. ”

Well this is odd. I suppose George Bush has decided to put his thumb on the scale to help out the Biden Crime Family. Cheating aside, I think they are overestimating the number of people who are willing to slit their own throats because of their hatred of President Trump.

Just finished clarie's piece for the week, comments too.

I am not the only person who thinks the bigger scandal is the FBI sitting on that for nearly a year; putting the country through the impeachment (POTUS could have used that as a negotiating chip w Nancy;
that Wray MUST go.

I think the perfect time is BEFORE the election--as in right before---Monday, November 2, maybe 5 pm eastern.
He won't lose a single vote by then by doing so, and the outcry over fascism/dictatorship will energize/remind his lackadasical supporters to get their fannies to a poll.

Lyle, if you start the pool---Nov 2 by 5pm eastern is mine.

FBI Director Wray continued to put under investigation and surveillance a fifth Trump campaign adviser -- even after Mueller closed case on him, finding nothing wrong -- and did not close case until recently.

I still think Wray gets fired on Nov 4 but you almost have to wonder, with the above, if Trump was for some reason asking Wray to poke around re: that advisor.

hrtshpdbox

Amazing how well Europe has upped its testing game.

Melinda

hrt-

Any wonder where they got the testing gear?

Clarice-

Excellent Pieces again. One question though, wasn’t the receipt for 3 Macs and an external HD? The timing of deposit at the repair shop almost screamed “Avoid Discovery!” from his ex’s child support suit, but that’s my speculation, only.

Melinda

Jane-

Thanks for asking, my eye is “there”. Just don’t ask me to recomb my hair....

clarice

Mel, I don't recall reading anywhere what the receipt said. It's possible he left the computer there to avoid discovery, but I don't think so. When his lawyer asked for the hard drive back reports say he thought Hunter had left the computer for repair in 2017, when actually he had done so in April 2019. This suggests to me that he was so out of it (the repairman said he seemed drunk) he forgot where he took it.

BeastsEngland

So we’re not supposed to snort cocaine off of girl’s asses? Is this like the new Puritanism? Anyone seen my laptop?

Jane

Good Morning!

Seems the phone is toast! I have my old one but ir doesn’t seem to connect. Marlene if you see this, you can’t call me!

I’m really sick of all these ongoing traumas. BUT it’s a gorgeous day!

Great Pieces Clarice!

Am I the only one who thinks Biden’s actions (Joe) were treasonous?

James D.

No, Jane. You are absolutely not the only one who thinks that!

clarice

Beasts, that is not Hunter--It is disinformation being circulated by 2 leftist outfits to embarrass the right--like the pizzagate crap.

Melinda

Ok, not sure where I got three, “+”....I’m sure I’ll get reminded/find it later. When I find it, I’ll share. NBD. Anyone catch the ex-FBI field agent (Chicago, naturally) arrest in CO for “home storage” of classified docs? That was an interesting little detail on org crime data walking out the door for retirement plans.

BeastsEngland

I’m guessing the real photos are much worse, clarice. Rudy said he was deeply disturbed by the images, and I assume he’s seen some ugly stuff as a prosecutor...

henry

Clarice, if that is disinformation put out by the left, the real pics must be even worse. Sending out chaff to hide the real info.

Ralph L

I thought the NYP said the repairman contacted Hunter and got him to bring a hard drive and contacted him again when the 90 days were up.

clarice

Reports are that the pics in the real stuff show sex with underaged kids. But see how this works--if you fall for this , then they reveal it's not Hunter and when the real stuff drops Biden defenders mock you for having fallen for this easily discredited claim, so the real stuff is ignored or its impact diminished. .Or no one will believe you again.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/10/classroom-learning-for-blacks-online-learning-for-whites.php

We're starting to see this discussed here under the guise of prioritizing equity issue students to in-person learning since the demand is so high. I recently saw an uncorroborated statistic that only 20% of students learn well online, the rest are struggling and losing ground, particularly the kids from unsupportive homes.

clarice

Ralph, I read the repairman repeatedly asked Hunter to pick up the computer and he did not.

jimmyk

I am not the only person who thinks the bigger scandal is the FBI sitting on that for nearly a year

amom, I've been thinking he should fire Wray now, as a way to draw attention to the emails. No way the media can ignore it if Trump holds a presser and says he's firing Wray and here's why. As long as the laptop and emails are confirmed to be Hunter's, which they seem to have been.

Porchlight

“He’s in trouble, there’s no question. By every traditional measuring stick, this looks like a Biden landslide,” said Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for President George W. Bush. ”

This is false. Trump is winning EVERY traditional measurement EXCEPT "who are you voting for" in the polls.

clarice

Biden is not denying this is the hard drive from Hunter's computer, nor are they denying the contents are true. The campaign calculation is that any denial will draw attention to this and will quickly be refuted. Instead, they will just put a lid on the campaign and hope the media continues carrying Biden's water.

Porchlight

If the FBI hadn't sat on the laptop, Biden would not even be the nominee.

clarice

Jane, you are weathering a lot of stuff like a champ--If your iphone is an apple take it into an Apple shop and see if there's anything they can do to repair it or retrieve its contents.

Narciso

I agree with your 9:18, Porch. Plus, the boat and car parades are unprecedented. :)

rse

Robin--what you are describing and that PL link has been a topic of numerous webinars as a means to get to Equity with in-person learning for students most at risk and online, which inherently means standardized even if that is hidden with hype about personalized, for more affluent students. Most parents fail to recognize the computer biases towards the visual instead of symbol systems and what they means to the brain. Norman Doidge has done a good job describing the changes to the physiology of the brain and how it will process information from such shifts.

https://www.aier.org/article/matt-hancock-is-wrong-about-herd-immunity/ is very good and was written by one of the co-authors of the Great Barrington Dec.

http://www.danielgreenfield.org/2020/10/the-chinese-lockdown-and-mask-model.html is also very good.

The uncomfortable truth was that the lockdowns had failed economically, socially, and medically.

Even blue states and cities were no longer able to carry the impossible economic burden much longer. The Black Lives Matter riots and the onset of summer broke the #StayHome taboos, and medically, the lockdowns had been useless efforts to meet a fake crisis of hospital overflows.

America, like too many other countries, put the experts in charge and they failed. Miserably.

Democrats claimed that they were superior because they were “listening to the science”. They weren’t listening to the science, which is not an oracle and does not give interviews. Instead, they were obeying a class of officials, some of them whom weren’t even medical professionals, who impressed elected officials and the public with statistical sleight of hand. And little else.

The entire lockdown to testing to reopening pipeline that we adopted wholesale was a typical bureaucratic and corporate exercise, complete with the illusion of metrics and goals, that suffered from all the typical problems of bureaucracy, academia, and corporate culture.

The system that determines reopenings and closings is an echo chamber that measures its own functioning while having little to do with the real world. Testing has become a cargo cult exercise that confuses the map with the world, and the virus with the spreadsheet. It gamifies fighting the pandemic while dragging entire countries into an imaginary world based on its invented rules.

When the media reports a rise or decrease in positive tests, it’s treated as if it’s an assessment of the virus, rather than an incomplete data point that measures its own measurements.

The daily coronavirus reports have become the equivalent of Soviet harvest reports. They sound impressive, mean absolutely nothing, and are the pet obsession of a bureaucracy that not only has no understanding of the problem, but its grip on power has made it the problem.

Porchlight

Biden's lawyers actually tried to get the laptop back, clarice, if what I read is correct. And yet media is going with muh Russian propaganda AGAIN - to the extent they're reporting on it at all.

peter

Couple of comments before I start my Sunday morning long workout followed by numerous chores--

First, I have great admiration for JOMers here who are so knowledgeable about computers and who understood the foundations of modern computer science by being involved in the 70s, 80s on early technology. I was a Luddite who didn't get a computer until the mid-90s.

Secondly, the dead tree edition of the Slimes came today. (My wife insists we keep our weekly subscription going.) It's all Orange Man Bad all the time with nary a mention of Hunter's laptop.
There's hardly any mention of Biden, either, save for a puff piece about Biden's youth, which I'll have to swallow a few anti-emetics before attempting to read. TM is probably reading it for us, and will use it as his next thread starter.
Great article, Clarice, as usual.

Russia could exploit its ties with US white nationalist groups to encourage election violence, experts warn

That nonsense headline is from a few hours ago at Business Insider, a site name that might suggest stories about business....but oh, no, not at all.

The left is already looking for ways to defuse their violence after Trump's reelection. It's a cinch to blame it on the enormous legions of white supremacists who have made our cities so hellish these past few months. ::eyeroll::

BeastsEngland

Rudy has Hunter’s signed receipt from the computer shop and an email from a Biden attorney asking for the laptop’s return. There’s no issue of provenance.

Davod

The Dems were surprised by Trumps win in 2016, otherwise they would have made sure he didn't win in those close states. They have had four years to prepare.

This is why they are running with Biden. The actual voter doesn't matter. Remember, it is who counts the votes that matters.

The media will set the scene by declaring victory for Biden early, despite the vote totals. The apparent outcry for Biden will be so great that the Rhinos and many conservatives will ask Trump to concede.

The US has used this on foreign governments in the past and it worked. Many of the same people (both in and out of government) are working behind the scenes to elect Biden(get rid of Trump).

James D.

That's pretty much how I see it, too, Davod.

They will cheat to an unprecedented degree, lie about everything, and put us into a position where we either have to submit to being ruled by Democrats whom we KNOW stole the election and whom we know will wreck the country and treat us ever more abusively; or start a war and make enemies of friends and family on the blue side and at some point start spilling blood.

Porch,

Thanks for your comment on Ari Fleischer. It's so strange because once or twice I've seen him on tv and he seem to be a Trump supporter. He gives no details on why he thinks the President is losing on EVERY level. It doesn't correlate with what we've been seeing every day in both campaigns.

Shambeachment would have been even more embarrassing, too.

Beasts, Hunter-Gatherer i$ loved unconditionally by POP (not to be confused with OBAMA'S poetry POP, nor ESTHER WILLIAMS a.k.a. CORN POP).

In fact Obama didn't stop loving HUNTIE, after he banged his beloved late son's WIFE.
Didn't stop loving Huntie, when he got thrown out of the military for doing blow.
Didn't stop loving him, when he returned a auto rental with a crack pipe, i.d., and a credit card.
No sir, didn't stop loving him unconditionally when he banged a stripper and had a baby that HE DIDN'T LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY.
Finally Pop didn't stop loving HUNTIE, when he brought home piles of cash from foreign countries where POP's name and office were the product.

What kind of fucking filth, would be in business with his only son, in such disgusting ways???

JOE BIDEN, that's who.
