Class, here's the prompt for this week's essay:

"Demonstrating to America's adversaries that the president is in good shape is a very wise policy." Discuss.

With so-called experts alleging the President is either incapacitated due to his medication or on death’s door due to oxygen levels, alongside Friday’s media speculation that enemies of America could take advantage, Trump’s drive-by was good for US national security.

“ Amazing, is it not? ”

It’s really insane. The dem candidate is basically not campaigning. Observable interest in him runs 100-1 against. But apparently thinks he’ll win.

The press has gone foaming-at-the-mouth-if-it-were-a-dog-we’d-put-it-down rabid. Not even a pretense of objectivity or even truth.

They behave as if the election doesn’t really matter.

Narciso

You would need the infinity gauntlet to put them all down.

And not just press

Aaaaand doctors saying they'd knowingly use mental health laws for political purposes is precisely why many conservatives question the practical implications of red flag laws.

Good work. Your politicization of medicine erodes trust in ways you never considered.

If @realDonaldTrump were my patient, in unstable condition + contagious illness, & he suddenly left the hospital to go for a car ride that endangers himself & others:

I'd call security to restrain him then perform a psychiatric evaluation to examine his decision-making capacity.

I was thinking about the hardworking rodeo clown years back who lost his job for wearing an Obama mask. Then I see a skit with two millionaires celebrating on national TV the possible death of our stricken President, currently fighting for his life. The Democrat audience cheered.

Thank you Iggy,

I was the one that asked about the fight over Nagorno-Karabakh. I still can't figure out who, if anyone, to root for. I find it interesting though that the present conflict goes back to Stalin and his penchant for arbitrarily borders around in the Soviet Union.

I remember the earlier fighting there that has been dormant for some time. In hindsight it foreshadows the later battle for the Crimea.

I think in the first go-round in the prior century I favored the Armenians because they had already been massacred 80 years earlier. It was made to seem as righteous.

This go-round the reporting is so sketchy (and biased) and the propaganda so much more obvious that I can't figure out who is at fault now.

It appears to me that we don't have a dog in this fight and should only try the diplomatic route, Everybody else in the region seems to have picked sides already.

Didn't seem right so I had to look it up. Moles are not of the order Rodentia, but of the order Eulipotyphla ("truly fat and blind") includes shrews and hedgehogs.

Had dinner with WonderGirl this evening. She was driving back to grad school after spending the weekend at Notre Dame for a wedding. The student body was already up in arms about Fr Jenkins appearing in pictures without a mask. They have expelled students for going to off-campus parties where people weren't wearing masks! And then he comes home and tests positive?

The students' theory is that he just got re-upped for another 5-year term as president, and he's trying to get out of it! (The students comment that he seems so miserable being president. One of WonderGirl's friends took a class on Aquinas and Fr Jenkins came and taught one of their classes. The students all noticed that is was the only time that any of them had ever seen him really happy!)

I liked the supernovae thing I posted, especially the little inset graph showing the light intensity diminishing.

And, yeah, the light took so long to reach us that right now it's probably a white dwarf or a black hole now.

I think the interesting thing about the Hubble telescope is even though it will die we have collected so much information with it that graduate students will be poring over the acquired database for many years teasing out more "new" discoveries.

Aaaaand doctors saying they'd knowingly use mental health laws for political purposes is precisely why many conservatives question the practical implications of red flag laws.

It’s less “question the implications” and more “know for rock solid fact exactly how they’ll be used and on whom.”

How does someone this clueless manage to get a medical degree? If Trump didn't make an appearance, this creep would be happy to spread rumors that he's at death's door.

“Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days,” Dr. James P. Phillips, an attending physician at Walter Reed, wrote on Twitter. “They might get sick. They may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity.”

Think about this. The presuppositions are hilarious.

I'd call security to restrain him then perform a psychiatric evaluation to examine his decision-making capacity.

If my Doctor thought she could call "security" at a hospital to force a psych exam and to restrain the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, she'd have a hard time serving me from her jail cell.

Boy am I sick and tired about all this.

I feel like Jane does when she is waiting to see her doctor in say a month to find out if her eye will ever work again, except it is worse than that. It is more like I know I have this massive tumor growing in me but the doctors can't do the biopsy until November - but they told me I have a 50/50 chance that it is either 100% benign, or else it will kill me by year end.

A round-up of conspiracy theories currently on Twitter:

From the Left:
1. He's not really sick and this is just to get out of debating
2. He deliberately got sick to try and infect as many people as he could
3. He's going to declare martial law due to the virus and cancel the election

From the right:
1. He's on a nuclear submarine out in the Atlantic to keep away from the 4 assassination teams going after him.
2. He's on AF1 where he will be able to control the mass arrests.
5. He's in a foreign country and the guy in the limo was a body double.

MissMarple2

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/oct/4/fbi-whistleblower-doubted-flynn-russian-agent-rumo/

The FBI whistleblower who is cooperating with a Justice Department probe of the bureau was an early skeptic of false reports that said retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had done something inappropriate with a Russian-born scholar at Cambridge University in England.

Agent William J. Barnett, who worked on the Crossfire Hurricane team investigating President Trump and his aides, said the allegation made no sense and was discredited by foreign intelligence agencies. “Not plausible,” he said.

OldLurker,

You're 8:00 a.m. -- I'm suffering just like you are.

I've always thought I was strong emotionally and able to stand up to people, but the nonstop venom and hatred and evil acts, especially among people you once thought were 100% stable and had morals, or at least manners and judgment and believed in our constitution and form of government, has me worried 50% of the time.

SpongeBob SquarePants is some of the alltime great comedy. I seriously love it.

2. He's on AF1 where he will be able to control the mass arrests.
5. He's in a foreign country and the guy in the limo was a body double.

I'm not on Twitter, but nobody's talking like this on TheDonald.win, I can tell you that.

Though many are (or were) worried about assassination attempts, for sure.

MissMarple2

https://victorygirlsblog.com/trump-drives-by-to-thank-supporters-troll-media/

Good recap, and also mentions something not often commented on: the President is almost incapable of getting rest.

Porchlight

I guess I don't feel that way about the election at all. I love it, it gets more exciting and fun every day. I can feel the energy rising just like in 2016.

I won't be able to follow as closely for the next couple of weeks as I'm headed to my actual job in the actual building where I work. But I'll try to catch up in the evenings.

Porchlight,

I find it strange that there are these subsets of conspiracy groups, highly detailed in their "analysis."

They aren't people I follow, but they get re-tweeted and show up in my time line.

I should go check out The Donald.

MissMarple2

joan,

The venom from the Left seeps into a lot of things. I cannot understand why people want to be that miserable, or why you would want to hang around such people. Do they think they are going to win voters?

I agree with clarice and others: all they are doing is driving people into the Trump camp.

hrtshpdbox

Trump and Elvis both appeared in Home Alone (especially remarkable for Elvis, who'd been dead for more than a decade). Trump is meeting with Elvis and Macaulay Culkin on a tiny island in the Pacific.

GUS

Who decided that the RIGHT believes that crap??

Old Lurker

Joan at 8:30.

Agree with every word.

I am most disappointed at the Fact-Free LUNACY of so many people I know and am, and have been for years, friends with.

Even if this all goes away tomorrow, I will never, never, ever trust those friends again or see them through the same eyes as before.

Add that to my losses for 2020.

GUS

OL, fact free, is so yesterday. Now it's making up shit, and attaching it to the FULL COMMIES preset opinions.

Lots of coincidences?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--I like that term, "the flat earthers of our day."--

Ideologies, like any cult, always develop a pattern of myth-making that takes on a level of 'truth' that no ordinary religion can equal in its fervor.
And they develop chants to reinforce the myths and dogma; 'follow the science', 'black lives matter', 'four legs good'.
You can't persuade a true prog. You can only hope to deprogram them.

--Who decided that the RIGHT believes that crap??--

As with most weirdness, a tiny fringe believes the things attributed to the right, whereas many if not most of the left believes the crazy stuff on their side, primarily because their side is crazy to begin with.
The man in the street is generally more rational than the inhabitants of the loony bin.

MissMarple2

We had actual frost last night, and a fairly heavy one. The furnace is running.

I forgot to tell you guys, we had a raccoon show up on the back porch yesterday evening! We just got rid of the kittens and he showed up!

I told my daughter not to even THINK about bringing it inside! Fortunately she knew better.

I think in her other life she was Sheenah, Queen of the Jungle.

James D.

The venom from the Left seeps into a lot of things. I cannot understand why people want to be that miserable, or why you would want to hang around such people. Do they think they are going to win voters?

I feel the same about the insane ongoing reaction to covid. It's like they actively want to live in a state of constant fear, and surrender any control over their own lives to others. I do not understand it at all.

Another Bob

“ As with most weirdness, a tiny fringe believes the things attributed to the right, whereas many if not most of the left believes the crazy stuff on their side, primarily because their side is crazy to begin with.”

But one crazy thing on the right equalizes/justifies a hundred crazy things on the left.

clarice

James--some people love living in a Friday the 13th movie--adds a little spice to a dull lives, I think, and lets them continually focus on themselves..

Great post Ig. Crazy to start with. I meet extremely low info peeps every single day, who have NO IDEA what is going on. They get the FULL COMMIE reports and have no critical thinking skills. The level and quantity of LEFTIST REPORTING leaves little to compare to. I taught my son HOW TO THINK, from the cradle. I am so so so happy that my wife and I raised him HEH HEH RIGHT.

Texas Liberty Girl: "During church this morning and when the prayers were being said, our Pastor included Donald and Melania. I'm sure churches and Synagogs all across our nation are praying for them are including them in their prayers. How can they not be healed?!"

A few months ago when I asked our associate pastor* to pray for President Trump, he ended the prayer meeting with the requests from other members and then said, 'bless our leaders' -- I've quit attending.

*He's the man the Presbytery sent to lead our congregation through the time after our own minister of 25 years had several homosexual affairs, his wife found out, and divorced him.

When it first came out about the reason for the divorce, the Presbytery sent our congregation a letter saying they were putting him on administrative leave, he would remain on salary, and they were going to investigate (there'd been an anonymous letter about his misuse of credit cards, trips, etc.). It took us a year, $75,000 in a settlement, plus his retirement paid until he either got another position or got old enough to get Medicare to get a release signed that he was no longer our minister. The Presbytery never released the findings of their investigation (which most of us didn't expect.) One friend said all they did was 'ease him into his homosexual lifestyle.'

I have strong faith in our Lord but stand on shaky ground about the mankind.
