The article from which Victoria Taft quotes, clarice, does not discuss additional indictments. It discusses additional subpoenas. No doubt Durham is looking at more indictments, but I think we'll need to wait a little longer.

I wonder what pretext options Team Biden is discussing to shut Durham down.

Neo

If it's true that the reconciling package costs $0, why do we need any legislation.
We can start now because $0 today will leave $0 tomorrow to carry on with the Building Back Better of America at a cost of $0. And thru the magic of compounded interest, $0 today will still be $0 tomorrow. Isn't that truly amazing ?
This program could go on forever without any money from anybody.

TC,

Given the very heavy scum to cream ratio at the top of the agencies involved, Durham may be watching the judge rota wrt the timing of indictments. I have very, very little faith we'll be seeing actual justice involved in this investigation.

"...Because the Taliban opened all the jails and freed the rapists and murderers –Afghanistan's female judges are on the run. The criminals whom they imprisoned are hunting them down, vowing revenge, swearing to do to them what they did to their murdered wives or to raped children. Six women judges, out of 220 women judges now in hiding, spoke with the BBC.

"One (judge), Masooma, said a man she sentenced for murdering his wife told her: 'I will find you and have my revenge.'...one judge said she had received 'more than 20 threatening phone calls from former inmates who have now been released...'

TC, it says the indictments are reported but the names are hidden as I read it.
Inflation in the 19 European countries that share the euro hit a 13-year high, challenging the European Central Bank’s (ECB) view that price pressures are largely benign and will soon fade.

Consumer price inflation in the eurozone accelerated to 3.4 percent over the year in September, up from 3 percent a month earlier and 2.2 percent the month before that, according to Oct. 1 data (pdf) from Eurostat, the European Union’s statisics agency. That’s the highest reading since September 2008 and slightly ahead of analyst forecasts of 3.3 percent.

A surge in energy costs was behind the bulk of the inflationary pressure, with energy prices rising 17.4 percent over the year and 1.3 percent over the month in September.

Factors behind the run-up in energy costs in Europe include a demand rebound from the lows of the pandemic recession, OPEC production caps, and global transport bottlenecks. Lackluster output from Europe’s windmills and solar farms, low natural gas stockpiles, and maintenance work taking nuclear generators and other plans offline have also contributed.

Energy cost inflation eclipsed the next highest category—unprocessed food—which advanced 2.6 percent in the 12 months through September though it stayed flat over the month.

Supply chain woes showed up in the data, with production and shipping bottlenecks contributing to a run-up in the prices of durable goods, which rose 2.1 percent over the year and 2.3 percent over the month in September.

Policymakers at the ECB, like their counterparts at the Federal Reserve, have taken the view that inflation is transitory and will fade once supply chain dislocations abate. Both expect price pressures to ease next year and fall closer to their respective targets—essentially the same 2 percent longer-run average that accommodates a moderate overshoot to compensate for years of below target inflation.

Still, ECB President Christine Lagarde struck a more cautious tone this week, pointing to increased inflation risks, even as she called for patience and warned against pulling back stimulus too quickly.

Some economists believe central bank policymakers may be underestimating the inflation risk.

“In our view, some one-off factors should indeed fade away next year but inflation could turn out to be stickier than the ‘transitory’ camp currently assumes,” Carsten Brzeski, global head of macro at ING Germany, said in a note on Friday.

But while economists generally expect heated debate at the ECB’s next policy meeting around the optimal pace of asset purchases, discussions around interest rate hikes appear far off.

“With yet another surge in headline inflation, the heat is on for the European Central Bank’s December discussion on whether a pure recalibration of asset purchases is enough or whether a more significant rewinding would be better,” Brzeski wrote.

Now that’s the kind of thing you don’t read about every day:

“It’s extraordinary how the Communists have managed things here; they have all the power in the camp next to the SS., and they attract all the other Communists, from other countries, and place them in key positions…Many of the Norwegian prisoners here have turned Communist. Besides all the immediate advantages it offers, most likely they expect Russia to be the big noise after the war, and then I suppose they think it may be handy to have one’s colour right. Last night, I was talking to our Blockaeltester, a Communist. When he and his mates came into power, there would be not merely retaliation but but even more brutality and greater cruelty than the SS. uses to us.

I've been reading and studying a number of economic collapses from history - from the crash of tulip bulbs to Venezuela - there are certain aspects, certain markers, that were easily recognizable before each of the collapses.
The US has a lot of those markers, three of of the most significant are an incautious, incestuous involvement between government and industry, a national leadership who chose to ignore the markers and an opposition party that simply stood by and did little to nothing to change direction.
The Biden administration is building upon the rotten foundation of the Obama years to create some real structural deficiencies in our economy and are building in crises for the future - and there are giant corporations who have signed on to help.
Electric car mandates are an example. The auto industry is killing the internal combustion engine at the behest of government. The fossil fuel sector is being dismantled - both at the same time when electricity generation is predicted not to be able to keep up with demand. This guarantees future shortages of electricity - and likely rolling blackouts, something more common in third world countries than in a nation that has led the world for over a century.
It's not just Biden, there are many powerful forces (foreign and domestic) that have been cheering for decades for America to fail.
The next 18 months are going to be bad, I fear.
The fall can be stealthy - you may have the same job and a paycheck, but each week that pay will buy less and less (that same theft by erosion will happen to your savings). You may be able to do most of what you used to do, but over time, more will be forbidden to you.
Look, 9/11 shut down our national transportation systems. The mortgage bubble burst and collapsed our financial systems. The reaction to Covid 19 shut down our supply chains, shut down a national economy and locked us behind closed doors. Cyber attacks and ransomware are in the news weekly for shutting down hospitals, agricultural and energy transmission businesses.
Imagine all of those happening at the same time.
I get accused of being pessimistic - and that is a fair assessment, because I am - but it isn't a violent pessimism, it is more of a resignation, a "better get ready" sort.
Better have enough space for a garden, better have a few critical things stocked up, better know a few basic SHTF (sh*t hits the fan) skills, better be ready to protect yourself and your family and have the equipment and supplies to do it, better transfer your investments into hard assets, better know where your loved ones are and how to communicate with them when cell phones no longer work.
I wake up every morning with a burning anger toward the people who destroyed my America and stole the good life I have had from my children and their children.
But more than that, I'm like one of those movie characters that has been shifted in time. I can see the explosion about to happen but nobody can hear me yelling at them.
My Spidey Sense is tingling, telling me there is something wrong. I can't put my finger on it, but it sure feels that something wicked this way comes.

In fact, I am wearing an AIR FORCE ACADEMY T-SHIRT as I CAPS LOCK.
Milley spoke. Captive audience, and some of the FINEST 20-21 YEAR OLD AMERICANS ALIVE.
My Niece shortly there after was ENGAGED to a fine young FOOTBALL TEAM TIGHT END from GEORGIA.....Unfortunately his family is from CHICAGO and Bears fans. Anywho, Milley IS SIMPLY PUT, A opportunistic, butt licking poosois.
He blubbered about how TRANNIES are equal and have their place in his MILITARY.
I am informed and knew exactly who MILLEY is/was, and I even enjoyed his TOME, until this blubbering buffffffffoooooon thought SUCKING UP to MENTALLY ILL SEXUAL DEVIANTS, had any reference to the GRADUATING CLASS of a UNIVERSITY
MOAR EXCLUSIVE that MIT. He was seeking a pat on the head. By his PUDDING CUP in CHIEF.
My experience at HANNAH'S COMMENCEMENT was UNBELIEVABLE, but MILLEY made me fear for her future. She is finishing a MASTERS in AEROSPACE Engineering at WRIGHT PATTERSON, then, like her Daddy, my brother is scheduled to fly a FIGHTER JET.

saw, great point. The French military was ossified and corrupt through the 19th Century. Between revolutions in 1848 and '71 and the Paris Commune the rot had set in.

But even they, they were patriotic. Today where are the loyalties of Milley, Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer et al, in other words the entire establishment?

They are not to the Constitution. They are not to the American people. they are not even to some alternate ethical system. They are graspers and cheats and grifters all trying to seize the brass ring of homes on Nantucket or Rehoboth Beach or the Hamptons. Not an honest living among them.

They don't value work or sacrifice. That's for the saps. Masks for xe but not for me. BUFF's, Big Ugly Fat Females with or without uturuses are the new ideal in their vision of the lumpenproletariat.

The debacle in Congress is almost operatic in its insanity.

The more I am researching the more I see real rocks & shoals in China. Real estate, commodities like steel and concrete and copper; anything that goes into construction is going to get badly dented. All of the property speculation is going to have a bad end. The local government debt is another part of this. Throw in bad crop harvests and energy shortages and it isn't pretty. This is the real time no lie GI truth.

And what do dictators do when there is internal unrest?

And over here we have drop a dime Milley who will be more than happy to call ahead for reservations on the last train out of town.

A more striking explanation of the Dreyfuss Affair might be J'Accuse by Zola if you really want to dig into the classism and racism of 19th Century France.

I don't believe single events are of much use in predicting the collapse of institutions deeply afflicted by geriatric scum rotting at the top. An event such as Chernobyl or Wuhan may be seen as a handy after the fact dating artifact (just as the Lehman or Evergrande events may be) but true geriatric scum rot damage occurs through the prevention of new growth - Feinstein in California providing an excellent example, if less obvious than Biden/Pelosi/Scumer.

I'm constantly running across things I wish I had written. This, from an unknown author, is perhaps the best description of why we aren't shooting right now.
“The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”
This is truly noble, but in situations like we face today, the antagonists are too cocksure and lack the self-awareness to know when they have carried it too far. They won't stop because they can't stop. Their blind allegiance to the mythology of their false gods simply won't let them.
They mistake patience for cowardice and tolerance for resignation. They mistake compassion for acceptance. They mistake a hatred of violence for defeat.
When they go too far, nobility of their enemies will not save them.
When I quoted Mike Campbell from Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises" about his fall in to bankruptcy happening in “Two ways, gradually and then suddenly", that is pretty much how men who are slow to anger make the long journey from peace to violence.

But MJW pharma is name specific in patents, protections and such. Comirnaty is NOT the same as their current vax due to this idiosyncracy.

What you are doing is equating generics with name brand drugs... they do the same thing, but.... and the courts have held that the formulation may be the same, but the protections granted are not the same.

But MJW pharma is name specific in patents, protections and such. Comirnaty is NOT the same as their current vax due to this idiosyncracy.

In my opinion, so what? If it's exactly the same substance, what do I care about some legality for patent law?

And I doubt there is such a legality for patent law, since patents protect inventions and processes; copyrights and trademarks protect branding.

Branco - I don't think parents should be telling schools what to teach.

I oppose wasting time and effort on foolish nitpicking, which if I understand the Comirnaty situation correctly, this is.

MJW - I don't understand the glibness of your comments. This is the FDA, not a PR firm. It's supposed to be full of experts. Yet they cannot seem to approve the vaccine being used in the USA. And, no, saying it's the same formulary does not cut it.

How many examples exist of the FDA approvingly a drug that is not available in the US?

Why bother?

Last night, we were discussing what you thought was needed to survive when the SHTF.

This is the last part of an e-mail I received because I purchased a book about superfoods.

"...Being Prepared.
The Starving Time of 1610 [Jamestown] a horror story from the distant past, but it contains lessons no prepper should forget. The colonists’ biggest mistake was not being self-sufficient in food.

They survived for a while on outside sources, but when those sources were cut off by conflict with the Powhatan and winter storms in the Atlantic, starvation became inevitable.

If you plan to survive long term, you need to ensure that you can feed yourself from sources you control and that you have reserves to keep you going if crops fail or you’re under siege for a while. Otherwise, you could end up as a footnote in some future archaeologist’s paper about 21st century cannibalism."

Mel,

Thanks for the articles on China. I haven't finished the Xi Gang yet though.

It's getting harder to figure out what is going on over there.

China official tells grid firms to prioritise residential users amid power crunch

"Beijing is scrambling to deliver more coal to utilities to restore supply, as nearly two-thirds of Chinese provinces grapple with power rationing. China's northeast provinces Liaoning, Heilongjiang and Jilin - home to nearly 100 million people - have been particularly hard hit."

What happened to the articles that said the power cuts were due to pollution quotas being exceeded?

Odd how these power problems started up when China banned the import of Australian coal.

MJW

MJW - I don't understand the glibness of your comments.

I see the Comirnaty argument as glib: it pretends to be addressing a serious concern, when there's no substance to it.

One can reasonably question whether the FDA followed established procedures in approving the Pfizer vaccine; but whether it did or didn't, it matters not a whit under what name they approved it.
