Hitler's British death island: Astonishing story of how the Nazis murdered 40,000 people in Channel Island [Alderney]concentration camps - and planned to blitz the South Coast with chemical weapons
- Top-secret launcher site for V1 missiles was being constructed on the tiny island
- Shockingly, they were to be armed not with conventional explosives, but deadly nerve gas Sarin
-Targets ranged from Weymouth to Plymouth, where in 1943-44, hundreds of thousands of British and U.S. troops prepared for D-Day invasion

I was watching a movie today and suddenly remembered that for years we had a real human skeleton in our basement rec room. I called my sister to see if that was correct or one of my weird brain lapses.

Indeed, we did. My dad brought it home when he found it in an old school his construction company was tearing down in southern Indiana. We named it Wilbur and used to dress him up for holidays. My mom finally made him get rid of it when her mother happened upon it. I think they gave it to the high school biology department .

I had a very interesting childhood. 😄

It's winter. generally speaking a bad time to launch an offensive. Even the Tollybons know this. If Belarus joins in then that is going to set off alarms on the other side. Russia is moving 5 landing ships towards Crimea. Encirclement.

I don't think the Poles will stand still and they are very good at killing Russians. The Baltic states are already sending weapons to Ukraine as are the Brits.

Sweden and Finland are in the game as well. Dominos and all that.

Joe Biden could very easily be drawn into this war and instead of projecting strength has projected compete worthlessness, as have the f'ing Germans.

The new Chancellor is the worthless SDP mayor from Hamburg who just caved to Putin. As my friends over there tell me the German electorate have degenerated into idiots. Sound familiar?

Putin is to an extent a hollow tiger. His military is lacking and the idiots in our intelligentsia are terrified of his news releases. Hypersonic missiles, an inventory of maybe 100 Armata tanks, etc don't make a major fighting force and Russia's military record isn't the best. Do they have leadership? Logistics? Freedom of maneuver?

And in the meantime China has dialed back their incursions into Taiwanese airspace. We have one battle group in the South China Sea and another not far off.

I am sure they are talking back & forth.

The Ukrainians and Russians both know how the game is played. See Finland 1939 or watch Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky for pointers. It is easier to defend than attack in winter.

I did it again. Somehow managed not to copy my text properly before blindly pasting the above. Skip that. Apparently clipboard is playing with me.

I intended to comment on Twitter.

Since a couple of days ago Twitter has modified its system. I click on a Twitter link that somebody has posted. As usual, not being a subscriber, I can still read the link and the subsequent replies until I get to the "more tweets" section that follows many tweet threads.

As soon as "more tweets" appears a "log-in" dialog screen pops up obscuring the content.

Sorry, no, I'm not going to log in to see the algorithmically-driven content that they think I might want to see.

Are their new subscriber numbers lacking?

I'm going to delete the Twitter cookie and see if that works to clear the problem. Has anyone else noticed this?

James D.

Clown show.

You knew who and what Biden was, TM, because this is what he’s been for literally half a century in elected office.

You voted for the clown show knowing full well it would be a clown show, because you didn’t like mean tweets and you wanted to be in tune with your idiot CT friends. You own this, and you own $4 gas and runaway inflation and war in Europe and every other disaster of its administration. You owe it to yourself, if no one else, to be honest and admit it.

The case is 3:21-cv-356, in the Southern District of Texas.

Judge Jeffrey Vincent Brown upheld a suit from federal workers who are refusing to be vaccinated against Covid:

“The motion is GRANTED as to Executive Order 14043. All the defendants, except the President, are thus enjoined from implementing or enforcing Executive Order 14043 until this case is resolved on the merits.”

Why were they able to roll out 5G in Europe and Asia so easily?

The US 5G spectrum is different than ROW. All of this hullabaloo is over “channel C” which is just under 4 Ghz. Radio altimeters use spectrum just above 4 Ghz. There is concern over interference, not that the FAA has gotten off its ass and done any consequential testing.

Look at winter warfare and it's no fun at all. Much higher hurdles for success.

It seems that many of the Europeans are waking up to the threat.

Putin will try to intimidate as much as he can before sending troops in. Russia's economy is buoyed by oil prices at the moment but it is still unstable.

Wars chew up huge amounts of resources to the point where Russia's economy, especially with sanctions, could get crushed.
