MM-

Mind the hype on Turkey, it's at the fringe of the risk curve, and has all the right moths dancing closest to the candle flame.

1 yr note rate is 21.40%, 5yr is 20.12% and their 10yr's at 19.235%. A slight curve inversion, implying that all the risk is in investing today, but the elevation across the curve, compared to US rates which range from 0.013% for 1 month paper, to 2.365% for 30 yr paper, implies that investing Anything there risks both return of principal and currency shifts.

I had opinions on Erdogan and Turkey, but all of that's been thrown out since I've been shown the gaslighting from a number of angles, and all are strategic. So I have no clue as to what path they're actually on....

Microsoft Outlook on-line is still verklempt.

Someone on Twitter says Boulder was a Langley operation. Twitter won't let the article post, but supposedly it's on Bitchute.

Also now 10 dead.

Melinda,

Also, I know nothing about financial stuff, but when I see something I post it, especially when it's hair on fire type.

I figure it's important, either as something about to happen or a a distraction.

MM, I think very few people who post here have the luxury of listening to Bannon live, if at all. If they do, many have expressed that they do NOT have the inclination.


If you would make a three sentence summary every time you do listen, it would be a real service.


Saying Bannon is "ballistic about the border"--my interest is not Steve Bannon's emotional status.
That doesn't tell me a thing about why.

I do listen to him--at 1.5 speed--when I can, because he gives me factual information from Michael Yon who is in Central America reporting, he reports on "normals" who are following that other fellow's instructions for how to take over the GOP by becoming precinct chairman, things like that.

Three sentences summarizing factual, actionable information from his program would be a real service.

Ditto with Timcast. (Or Bongino)
I had a chance the other day to listen--again, at 1.5 time--to a segment of one of his podcasts, and I see why you follow him.
A few sentences about true news--who, what, where , when, how, why, right? ---would be most appreciated by me.

Thanks!

If you have noticed how the Woketeers are constantly consuming each other, you are not alone. This is an inescapable outcome of collectivism. As power becomes the objective, fewer and fewer people are seen as pure enough to wield their sacred weapons of destruction. Stalin had his purges, Mao his "Great Leap Forward" and now, America has the Woketeers and their Cancel Culture.

Think about how they use identity politics to increase their power, not through multiplication, but by division.

It is easy to show, through simple math, how identity politics is both contradictory and self destructive.

Mathematics teaches us that division by zero is undefined, so the least common denominator for any fraction is the number 1.

Identity politics is about slicing populations into fractions, separate groups that are parts of the whole, based on physical, mental and economic characteristics to create some sort of political advantage.

But let us say we keep doing that until reaching the true endpoint.

We first separate by race, then by biological sex, then by sexual preference, then by economic status, then by educational level, then by job, then by age, then by location, then by political affiliation, then by philosophy, then by religion, then by...well, whatever. It doesn't matter what order, we are just trying to sort people into groups.
The point is that there is no end to the grouping, regrouping and the crossovers between groups in a nation as large as America. Every population has groups, those groups have subgroups, those have subgroups, and so on, ad infinitum.

The process continues because identity is about finding groups of people who are unique in who they are and what they believe - but even that is contradictory because only an individual is truly unique. Only the singular individual is truly unique in all aspects.

But that is the point, identity politics carried all the way to its logical endpoint ends with an individual, not a group.

Ayn Rand said that the individual was the smallest minority, and even the practice of identity politics confirms she was right.

To collect individuals into a group, one must focus on the very small items of shared agreement, not the differences. We, as a nation will never agree on everything, but there is a very small number of things we can all agree upon. Those are the things upon which we are willing to voluntarily compromise a bit to achieve.

Individuals in all groups, no matter how disparate, do share some core commonality in wants, needs and desires, even if those things are an extremely small number and have nothing to do with any specific identity group, but as a general proposition, are common to all people.

Regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation, or anything else, we can all agree that we should stand together for justice, peace, protection of ourselves, our families, our property and our nation, we want our opportunities to succeed protected and we want to assure those same things will be available for our kids and grandkids into the future.

Most probably have noticed but the paragraph above is my rewording of the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America.
The only way to govern a nation of individuals is to limit governance to the absolute minimum number of shared needs, wants and desires and leave the rest to the individual.

Doing anything more guarantees constant conflict and chaos.

Our Founders knew this much about the combination of governance and human nature and gave us a blueprint to best manage both. We ignore that blueprint at our peril.

They've probably got a squad of pajama boys looking for a Darrell Issa connection before they put his name out there.

GUS

Ahmad Alissa, sounds so PEACEFUL. Or mostly PEACEFUL.
Mel, when I posted that EVANSTON link, I thought of you.

MissMarple2

anonamom,

Summary so far:

Prince says that the problem in Central America is that the cartels are at least as strong or stronger than the military of the governments. Yon seconds this, and the people fleeing are using their heads and trying to get out.

The cartels buy weapons from the Middle East, as well as smuggled across the US border. They have 50-caliber machine guns mounted on trucks, for example. Their motto is "silver or lead." (In other words, pay me or you're dead.)

Betsy McCoughey on now, says 75% of the minors are teen boys. "Think tattoos, not teddy bears." They will, by law, have to be enrolled in public schools and will, again by law, have to be provided tutors. Most don't speak English, and quite a few don't even speak Spanish but some obscure Mayan dialect. School systems will have to pay for the tutors and you will not have money for other programs, like band.

Prince says we are still in Afghanistan because the Pentagon is stuck in the "drop bombs, use armor, etc." conventional warfare. Bannon says the conventional wisdom is that Prince is crazy. Prince says he wears that as a badge of honor.

Did you know that we have a Baskin and Robbins and 3 Starbucks in Afghanistan? FUNDED BY OUR MILITARY?

Also: Daily Mail reports shooter in Boulder is 21-year old Achmed al-Issa.


MissMarple2

Raheem says he finds it odd that the media seems to be mispronouncing the name.

What Miss Marple would like to know is how this guy, age 21, got into the country. Born here? Came in with parents as a refugee legally?


Or maybe came in over the southern border?

Dave (in MA)

Ahmad Al-Issa
Ahmad Alissa

I wonder how many permutations we'll see before they standardize on one name?

Dave (in MA)

MSNBC now says:

    After 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at the King Soopers grocery store in Colorado, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold read the names of the victims and identified the name of the suspect before promising a "thorough investigation"

...but NBC still have not provided the name.

MissMarple2

jimmyk,

You have gotten really good at progspeak!

Dave (in MA)

jimmyk, this would be a good time for all of us to reflect on how we might have been able to personally and collectively have suppressed our white privilege so that Mr. Issa would not have felt that he had no other recourse than to carry out this act.

Why do you all hate MUZLIMS, is it because of JOHN KERRY and BI-BARRY OBAMA.

Shame on you.

MissMarple2

Raheem got the guy's account from Facebook, archived it, fortunately, because after he went to the account and looked at it Facebook took the account down.

He is pretty sure, although not positive, that this is a radical Islamicist who immigrated from Syria.

Raheem says that he cannot be positive about this because it is raw information. Bannon says that the fact that it was taken down so quickly was that law enforcement was working with Facebook to get it removed.

Raheem reports through Jack Prosobiec that Biden has been briefed.

MissMarple2

Also apparently the guy has Isis sympathies and hates the LBGTQ agenda.

I want more information
; did he live in Boulder? Did he go to school at CU?

How long has he been there? Where did he live? With who? Where did he come from?

It gets weirdly personal when you’ve lived there.

I did like that they stripped him down to his undies, with no shoes to walk him to the arrest car. Snow on the ground.

Maybe MSNBC is too busy sifting through members of the Boulder Police Dept.'s online T-shirt purchase histories to bother to type in "AHMAD AL-ISSA".

A funny thing happened on the flight home from Alaska. The lab leak hypothesis is a conspiracy no more.

Out: “China Virus”

In: “Made in China Virus”

Science, like journalism, is supposed to be about facts and about getting to the truth. But those who dare seek answers to reasonable questions about any lab accidents in Wuhan are accused of peddling conspiracies.

Let me be clear: Labs in Wuhan might not have played any role in the origin of the pandemic. But a year later, no source has been found, and the world deserves a thorough, unbiased investigation of all plausible theories that is conducted without fear or favor.

Via our oft-cited Yuri Deigin, co-author of this recent publication: The genetic structure of SARS‐CoV‐2 does not rule out a laboratory origin

Nikolai Petrovsky also bucked the narrative — More than a year into the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, some scientists say the possibility of a lab leak never got a fair look.

Parler games coming to light:

Bobby Allyn @BobbyAllyn
1h
New: Former Parler CEO John Matze sues the company and its leadership, including Rebekah Mercer, in Nevada state court claiming his 40% stake was taken away in an "arrogant theft." Suit says he was subject to intimidating threats and bullying and is owed millions of dollars.

As he's stated before, Matze said his spat w Mercer was over content moderation. In particular, the suit says his push that QAnon, neo-Nazis, incitements of violence and domestic terrorism be moderated was resisted.

Matze says Mercer and others disagreed & "hijacked" the site


A lot of odd details about Parler's financing. Suit claims Mercer initially hid her investment stake in Parler behind NDMASCENDANT LLC. And Mercer's money was allegedly characterized as a loan, so her 60% stake was being claimed as both an equity stake and debt.


Investor Jeffrey Wernick had entities provide "convertible debt agreements" with Parler, including one such firm, Dream Seekers Limited, based in Shanghai. The amount is not disclosed.


Bobby Allyn @BobbyAllyn
3m
There was a push from Wernick to give Dan Bongino an ownership stake in Parler in exchange not for money but for his "media presence and various media platforms" to promote Parler. The suit says it's unclear whether that ever happened, but Bongino did purport to be an investor.

The city seems much more alive than it did, with restaurants (but not bars :( ) essentially fully open indoors and out, streets busy with pedestrians, etc. But that's in my mostly residential neighborhood.

MT, I was lucky to see Prine a couple of times at the beginning of his career at a small club outside Philly. He was touring with Steve Goodman and they were both conversationalists. Their stories were as much fun as the music, which was superb.

Have been a fan of both to this day. Goodman died of cancer a while back and John just left recently, but even when considering his own mortality he had a sense of humor.

"When I get to Heaven" is a classic, "Gonna smoke a cigarette 5 miles long" was subversive.

There are almost too many Prine or Goodman classics. We have lived among giants, or at least Cubs fans.

Dave (in MA)

Even though the Atlanta Neckbeard has admitted to the cops that he did it out of shame that he shares the same hobby as Bob Kraft, he's still conveniently white, so they can bitterly cling to that narrative, but Ahmad Achmed Abu al-Issa Alissa is problematic.
