Ever since Epstein entered the court system (and never came out), everybody’s said “Bill Clinton Next!”. But there hasn’t been a whisper of his name mentioned. Not once in three years. If I’m asked about it, I’ll be like “Bill ain’t an elected official anymore. What’d you expect me to do about it?!”

He hasn’t been on the ballot in nearly a quarter century. I’d be surprised if it was Bill. If it is a prominent Dem though, I think George Mitchell could be it. I’ve seen a lot more credible evidence linking him to Epstein than Clinton.

Federal Mission

During peacetime each state National Guard answers to leadership in the 50 states, three territories and the District of Columbia. During national emergencies, however, the President reserves the right to mobilize the National Guard, putting them in federal duty status.
While federalized, the units answer to the Combatant Commander of the theatre in which they are operating and, ultimately, to the President.
Even when not federalized, the Army National Guard has a federal obligation (or mission.) That mission is to maintain properly trained and equipped units, available for prompt mobilization for war, national emergency, or as otherwise needed.
The Army National Guard is a partner with the Active Army and the Army Reserves in fulfilling the country’s military needs.

Grant Imahara, an electrical engineer and roboticist who hosted the popular science show MythBusters and Netflix’s White Rabbit Project, has died. He was 49.

Imahara died suddenly following a brain aneurysm, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. “We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant.

“…even the possibility of National Guard involvement has infuriated hospital industry leaders, who say any data collection problems lie primarily with the Department of Health and Human Services and repeatedly changing federal instructions.

Certainly the expertise of the National Guard can be used in a more productive way.”

HHS officials on Monday finalized a new data reporting protocol for hospitals, which will eliminate the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a data recipient, leaving health-care institutions to report information about covid-19 to a federal contractor or to their state, which would coordinate the federal reporting. Covid-19 is the disease caused by the virus.

Every breathless utterance you see on the internet needs to be taken with a whole keg of salt. It’s usually preliminary material, picked up by journalists who have deadlines and no scientific knowledge, and amplified (with added errors) by the twitterati. The only way we’re going to find out how long immunity lasts is to track a large group of cured people, wait a few years and see how many got it again.

Welp, this is how you bury the data, never to be seen again.

This is not science. This is the farthest thing from science.

Everyone at the CDC and the NIH should just quit and leave the government if this goes through and get jobs researching “additional deaths over existing trends.”

If you think about the people who have acted like she has tapes on them, Bill doesn’t strike me as one of them. Graham, on the other hand…

According to the report, the timeline on this was between 1996 and 1998 - right in the middle of when Clinton was under a microscope scrutinizing him for his Monica Lewinski affair. I find it extremely unlikely that he would have had the opportunity to sneak out to party with Epstein at the time. On the other hand, the OTHER guy who does have well-documented and credible reports of sexual indiscretions involving minors (like say, at teen beauty pageants being held in Russia) had a heck of a lot of freedom to move around at will.

hi

I can only be here briefly. My wife and I have to go to town later. Yay, in one of the riskiest counties in the state to appear in a group of ten or more.

I was playing with some of the functions of Little Green Footballs I didn’t know Mr. Johnson has programmed into this corner of sanity in an insane world.

I found for example that I’ve posted (as of this time) 11,294 items to the Media Library. They mostly consist of tweets I thought interesting and reposted here, but include videos, images, &c.

Little Green Footballs is a daily exercise in discovery.

So, today I learned something new.

en.wikipedia.org

I mentioned the NS Savannah in the May Flag Observance post.

Quoting me:

On this date in 1919, the steamship SS Savannah set sail on the first trans-Atlantic voyage entirely conducted under steam power. The day is marked in law to recognise that event, and fallen mariners in the United States Merchant Marine. The date is a full-staff day.

NS Savannah (the world’s only nuclear-powered merchant ship, named after the famous steamship) is currently docked in Baltimore, MD., is where events marking the day usually take place.

All government agencies are directed to fly the flag on National Maritime Day. All ships and boats registered under the American flag should dress ship. All citizens are encouraged to fly the flag on National Maritime Day.

Flag Observances for May (Goes to the right-hand column of Little Green Footballs)

Amongst other things to do today is send off a birthday card for my mother (she will be eighty on July 20—she maintains NASA gave her a birthday present in 1969 by landing people on the Moon). Since she is adamant about not leaving Chicago despite being unable to afford to live there, my wife and I are going to send a bunch of money in a Postal Money Order to her disguised as a gift (gee, Mom, we can’t figure out what you’d like for your birthday, so buy yourself what you want).

I’d just as soon that people who want to go on cruise ships not be forced to switch to other forms of vacation.

Some campers wanted a better view of the lake from their public campground in the Superior National Forest. So they cut down some trees.

“You think something as basic as that wouldn’t happen,” said Trent Wickman of the U.S. Forest Service, but many travelers are forgetting to pack their wilderness etiquette.

North Shore locals are losing patience with careless visitors trashing trails and campsites, with one resident saying: “We and Cook County are not here for you to beat us up.”

“It’s the only pandemic of our lifetime and we’re having the busiest summer of our lifetime,” he said, and while that’s great for business, some visitors are showing “a lack of regard for authority and for regulation.”

…visitors are showing up without knowing what to expect or what is expected of them.

Visit Cook County, the area’s tourism bureau, said “there is no janitor in the wilderness” and that folks need to follow the principles of Leave No Trace more than ever.

“This philosophy is not just for backcountry campers,” the group said. “It is critical that we do what we can to mitigate damage to our environment.”

The only way I can see navies functioning effectively is to quarantine crews for a few weeks before the start of a deployment, and very limited port visits for liberty.

That’s not a really good way to keep up morale amongst the officers and crew.

And that’s why I didn’t go.

Morrill County rodeo identified as COVID-19 exposure site (Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald)

Baseball and basketball aren’t the only sports which are going to have problems with this.

A Morrill County rodeo has been identified as a possible exposure site as Panhandle health officials announced new coronavirus cases.

During Monday’s Panhandle Public Health District’s daily briefing, officials announced Camp Clark Rodeo, held over the July 4 weekend, as a daily exposure site. It’s the first community exposure site in some time that has been announced since PPHD began tracking coronavirus cases and doing monitoring in the Panhandle on March 2.

Officials would not say how many of the 12 people who were announced as new cases of the coronavirus could be tied to the rodeo.

“At least one,” Scotts Bluff County Health Director Paulette Schnell said.

Schnell said, “What we identified was the person or people who were there that were positive were at a lot of different places and may have been in close contact with people that they cannot identify.”

Last month, a Morrill County event, a golf tournament played on June 20, had been tied to an influx of coronavirus cases. Kim Engel, PPHD director, said that not all cases in Morrill County since that date were tied to the event, but a large number were. A total of 38 cases were announced in Morrill County over an approximately two-week period beginning June 24.

None of the 12 identified during Monday’s call were Morrill County residents, but from other counties.

(more)

Camp Clark is about eighteen miles from my house. The golf course in question is sixteen miles from my house.

A hay bale fire here which could have turned into a disastrous prairie fire has been extinguished.

Bale Fire Lasts Three Days Near Potter (goes to the Western Nebraska Observer, Kimball, more at the link)

The fire was two miles from the Colorado state line.

Potter Fire Department, along with Sidney, Peetz, Dix, Kimball and Dalton, responded to the 500 bales of millet/hay on fire. The fire departments rotated in and out. Stevens was thankful for the help from the area departments.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but spontaneous combustion is a possibility. When the Potter Fire Department arrived the entire top row of big round bales was engulfed in flames, according to Stevens, “one of our concerns was the trees, but we worked pretty hard to keep the fire away from them.”

Using meters and other measuring devices, Stevens said they poured 700,000 gallons of water to the fire. When they would take one bale off, the oxygen would get to the bale underneath and it would just explode according to Stevens. Even though the bales would be soaked it would be hot underneath.

The fire departments used tractors, skid steers and loaders but had to be cautious as not to overheat the hydraulics of the equipment they were using.

Not to say that NY didn’t make mistakes either. They were slow to enact the closures by a day or two (and that makes all the difference). Their handling of nursing homes was inadequate, and we know about 40% of the deaths occurred in nursing facilities in both NY and NJ. The lack of testing made all of this so much worse. Now, NY tests are more easily available, and that makes containment feasible.

FL, TX, and AZ aren’t doing enough testing, it’s not easily available, and the cases are soaring. Hospitals filling up and requesting refrigerator trucks is a sign that they learned precisely nothing from the NY experience other than to make sure there’s testing for nursing homes (so far).

Scotland’s COVID-19 numbers as reported by the First Minister — no new deaths of confirmed cases, the sixth day in a row that’s happened. More cases hospitalised, three new cases confirmed. The numbers on a Tuesday are usually higher than Monday’s since there’s a backlog of data from the weekend to process.

The Scottish government are starting to plan for an expected second wave of COVID-19 in the late autumn and early winter, along with the usual respiratory diseases like season flu which will hit medical services and expected hospital bed availability.

There’s been some speculation that Scotland might impose quarantine restrictions on English visitors if the English government doesn’t get a better grip on the COVID-19 outbreak there. This proposal has not received a welcome in Conservative circles in London but the Nippy Sweetie is all out of fucks to give on what the Tories think.

One thing I don’t understand is why so many people think that flattening the curve only applies to the epidemic.

There were two new cases reported in the Nebraska Panhandle yesterday, bringing the total to 359. Four are in hospital.

However, hospital bed availability here is 52%. It turns out you need hospital beds for other problems.

If that number reaches 100, then people who have problems from a heart attack to a broken hip aren’t going to be able to get into a hospital. Flattening the curve leaves hospitals available for all the other problems which haven’t gone away.

Michael Gerson:

…But for rash, foolish irresponsibility, I’d nominate the opposition research paper recently circulated by the White House in an attempt to discredit the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ Anthony S. Fauci. As reported by The Post, the document recounted a number of instances — on community transmission, asymptomatic transmission and mask wearing in particular — where Fauci’s views have shifted over time. As far as I know, this official record is unique: A White House attack on the government’s leading infectious-disease specialist during a raging pandemic. It indicates an administration so far gone in rage, bitterness and paranoia that it can no longer be trusted to preserve American lives.

snip

Rather than addressing these failures, Trump has chosen to sabotage a public official who admits their existence. Rather than confronting these problems, Trump wants to ensure his whole administration lies about them in unison. The president has surveyed America’s massive spike in new infections and thinks the most urgent matter is . . . message discipline.

One thing I don’t understand is why so many people think that flattening the curve only applies to the epidemic.

There were two new cases reported in the Nebraska Panhandle yesterday, bringing the total to 359. Four are in hospital.

However, hospital bed availability here is 52%. It turns out you need hospital beds for other problems.

If that number reaches 100, then people who have problems from a heart attack to a broken hip aren’t going to be able to get into a hospital. Flattening the curve leaves hospitals available for all the other problems which haven’t gone away.

they also think flattening the curve means done, success, party!

BTW, in case anyone was curious, USS Bonhomme Richard is apparently still on fire in San Diego. The latest reports indicate that while the blaze is somewhat contained, it is still not “out”, and that the Navy still has no clear idea of the extent of the damage. Yet.

Though, via the usual authoritative source of Internet gossip, it seems increasingly likely that BHR may have to be written off: it will/may depend on the extent of structural damage to the hull from the fire.

And, of course, the estimated cost of repairs vs. replacement vs. retirement, etc. Oh, not to mention the costs of mitigating any environmental damage the ship fire may cause: IIUC, the vessel’s fire-control systems had been drained, but its fuel tanks (or some tanks of some type of fuel) had not.

Have the Republicans made one even quasi-substantive hit on Biden over policy, or is it all personal attacks & “Dems are socialists” boilerplate?

A: No, and Yes.

Though that’s unsurprising: Trump and the GOP really don’t have much in the way of “policy” to run on (and except for immigration issues - i.e. racist bashing of “illegals” - never have had); so “personality” shit and hysterical fearmongering is all they have left.

Though (just IMHO) dwelling on “policy” in this election would be (for Biden and the Dems in general) a waste of time: this whole contest is going be a personal judgment on Donald Trump and the Republican Party. Going into any but the most generalized descriptions of what a Biden Administration would do, would, I believe, simply bore people, and deflect from the fundamental core issue of the campaign: i.e. replacing an incompetent, corrupt and compromised Executive and Legislature* with one(s) that will be seen to be doing the peoples’ work more effectively.

Shootings are up. Deaths are up too. Why is a good question. There’s some evidence that domestic violence has accelerated, but NYC saw a spate of drive-by shootings.

I’m still curious where all the guns are coming from in NY. Out of state guns have been part of gun violence in NY for decades - so it’d be curious to see where the guns are coming from - someone’s profiting from them.

NYC disbanded an anti-crime unit, because it disproportionately arrested and went after persons of color and used abusive tactics. But that doesn’t stop the crimes from occurring in the first place.

There’s no department of pre-crime, so something else is going on here. We’re also seeing a lot warmer weather. People are staying home for longer stretches of time.

I’d suggest looking at the water quality in the homes where these people are living. Prolonged exposure to water with high lead levels could lead to violence but not sure how quickly lead exposure could cause people to act violently.

The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, has been in isolation for almost a week at the official residence of Alvorada, after confirming that he had contracted the new coronavirus.

In an interview with CNN Brasil, the president indicated that a new examination will be carried out on Tuesday, and he confessed that he eagerly awaits the results because he cannot bear the confinement.

The result of the RT-PCR examination “should come out in a few hours and I will wait with quite anxious because I can’t stand this routine of staying at home, it’s horrible”Said the president in the telephone interview.

This is the funny part….

Beyond his remote labors, the president starred in an unusual scene outside the walls of his residence, which was captured by a photographer and widely commented on media and social networks.

While strolling through the residence gardens, Bolsonaro tried to feed a group of emus who were passing by. However, the result was not what was expected: one of them bit his hand.

“Nothing would make me less likely to go shopping than the thought of having to mask up,” says Conservative Sir Desmond Swayne who calls the new rule for shoppers in England a “monstrous imposition”

I find nothing would make me less likely to shop than the thought of going into a shop full of people without masks.

They are both equally patriarchal and homophobic, and both home-grown to the greatest extent and tailored to fit the nationalist sentiment of representing “God’s Chosen Nation”.

Any religion that is the religion of the ruling class displays these characteristics, Protestantism, Catholicism, Orthodox, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, “Marxism”, “Maoism”…

Despite being a 2nd generation atheist (and convinced that belief in religion is fundamentally stupid) I contend that it’s any particular religion (or in the case of for e.g. doctrinaire “marxism”, pseudo religion) that’s the problem, it’s what happens when you weaponise a belief system as a way of propping up the ruling class.

BTW, in case anyone was curious, USS Bonhomme Richard is apparently still on fire in San Diego. The latest reports indicate that while the blaze is somewhat contained, it is still not “out”, and that the Navy still has no clear idea of the extent of the damage. Yet.

Though, via the usual authoritative source of Internet gossip, it seems increasingly likely that BHR may have to be written off: it will/may depend on the extent of structural damage to the hull from the fire.

And, of course, the estimated cost of repairs vs. replacement vs. retirement, etc. Oh, not to mention the costs of mitigating any environmental damage the ship fire may cause: IIUC, the vessel’s fire-control systems had been drained, but its fuel tanks (or some tanks of some type of fuel) had not.

Sweet jeebus. Over 60 sailors/firefighters injured. Fire may have started in storage areas in lower portion of ship.

The ships regular fire suppression systems were disabled because of the rehab work underway. That may be why the fire spread and got as intense as it did. They’re still fighting it remotely, but think they can keep the fire from the oil storage bunkers.

Just talked to a friend of ours who owns our neighborhood bar. Right before the fucking plague hit, he signed a two year thing for his license and lease for the building. (New Mexico has a set amount of liquor licenses, you need to “borrow” and lease one to run a bar. The people who own the licenses very rarely sell them, but if they do, they run a million and up. They make the real money leasing and dipping their beaks in the profits.)

Anyway, our friend is cool, he’s frustrated and talking about how the virus is a natural thing and we need to not close businesses because of it. He said it’s a type of flu. No, he’s not political and he doesn’t watch Fox, but he does hang out on the internet, so… yeah.

He said if they don’t get to open within the next couple of months, they’ll never open again. We told him as soon as they can open in any form, we’ll come have a drink. (And I am absolutely FREAKED out on spending any time in an enclosed place like that.) But we’ll definitely go have a shot.

We told him about dude getting laid off, and he was bummed for us. Then we told him that all the things dude wanted to be able to do when he retired are off the fucking table, so all we do is go look for wildlife and have a couple of shots.

We are living in hell, or, if you are a Catholic or Episcopalian, maybe it’s purgatory.

Barber wrote a guidebook describing his historical depiction in each of the painting’s 43 panels, archived by the Baker County Historical Society. His entry for the KKK image does not mention anything about the group’s extensive and brutal history of racial terror. It instead describes the KKK as a solution to “lawlessness,” saying in part:

“Lawlessness among ex-slaves and troublesome whites was the rule of the day. No relief was given by the carpetbag and scalawag government or by the Union troops. The result was the emergence of secret societies claiming to bring law and order to the county. One of these groups was the Ku Klux Klan, an organization that sometimes took vigilante justice to extremes but was sometimes the only control the county knew over those outside the law. The Klan faded from view at the end of Reconstruction. It had minor come-backs in the 1920’s and mid 1950’s. Since then it has become the subject of legend rather than a cause of fear.”

Birth of a Nation view of the Klan; and calling the 1920s revival “minor” is just a flat-out lie.

The KKK of the 1920s was the Klan at its zenith. It’s never been more powerful, before or since.

One thing I don’t understand is why so many people think that flattening the curve only applies to the epidemic.

Do you remember when people were being outraged when hospitals in northern Italy had to start formal triage and only treat people they thought they could save?

Ah, innocent times.

(An aside: Liberté, Fraternité, Egalité is not just a slogan in France, the conseil constitutionel has ruled that it is a part of the constitution. When cases in the Grand Est (d’r Grossa Oschta) started to overwhelm local hospital capacity evacuation convoys (helicopter to Germany and Switzerland, Army air transport to Lyons, medicalised TGV trains to Bordeaux) were organised to free up intensive care beds. The same procedure was put in place when the cases in the Ile de France started to run out of control, and currently l’Armée de l’Air are evacuating cases from Guyanne to Martinique for the same reason. Fraternité. PS. Thanks once again to our German and Swiss neighbours for their help.).

ocument recounted a number of instances — on community transmission, asymptomatic transmission and mask wearing in particular — where Fauci’s views have shifted over time.

My opinion changes to fit the facts. Yours?

Well, over here in Scotland, there have been no reported deaths for the last 6 days. (Population of Scotland: about 5.3 million.)

Obviously, this is early days in the easing of the lockdown, but it looks like a good sign.

Floridians are sick as fuck of Corona and Trump is not in any position to wash his hands of what he has helped to bring about.

I just watched that ‘Bye Don Jr’ spot. (Not gonna link it)

Everybody talks about how annoying Evita’s voice is, but Greazy Punk Jr’s voice is every bit as annoying. He tries so hard to sound authoritative, but it always sounds like someone trying too hard to sound authoritative.

Salyers stated that he transferred his weapon from his right hand into his left hand and reached for the door knob and, as he opened the door, the gun went off, firing a round through the front door

Yeah, but compare it to responses in America, and suddenly it looks really good. By no means perfect, of course.

Yeah, but I was comparing New York to first world countries, not third world failed states.

re: #282 The Pie Overlord!

Let’s face it: Ben Garrison is a lousy right-wing cartoonist. If one were to go through his whole portfolio odds are you’d find a lot of slander and libel on his part. And since he has no backing/agency of any editorial press (AFAIK), he’s just pissing up a rope for distance.

Some of his cartoons, ironically, have proven to have failed so spectacularly in their predictive quality (WeSearchr) that whatever he draws should be laughed at - and if printed, used as toilet paper.
