In Which Donald Refuses to Say He’ll Step Down Peacefully if He Loses

Politics • Views: 18,728

Nobody will be able to claim they were surprised when he tries to wreck the country in a batshit all-out desperate effort to stay in the White House even if he loses the election. All of his relentless bullshit about nonexistent mail-in ballot fraud is intended to give him the pretext to refuse to step down, and he now has the chance to install another malleable, compliant puppet on the Supreme Court to help him.

And he’s doing it with the total awareness that he also has a fanatical right wing cult, many of them heavily armed, that won’t think twice about doing violence in his name.

He’s making his intentions frighteningly clear.

Repeating from the bottom of the last thread:

There will be an election. If he doesn’t win it, his term ends at noon on January 20, 2021. At that point the Secret Service and Federal Marshals can forcibly remove him if he refuses to go.

I’ve just returned from a successful reconnaissance and re-supply mission into enemy territory, the Walmart in Weatherford.
I was only there for a few minutes but I spotted just two Putin suicide volunteers, ie non-maskers. Both were well over 50 and probably over 60, too late for a Darwin Award since, strictly speaking, those non-coveted awards apply only to people who might still reproduce if they did not self-eliminate. Looking on the bright side, though, maybe they’ll contract Covid and die before they can vote again. (I am just out of fucks to give at this point.)

I guess the part i have a hard time understanding is that these guys perpetrating all of this shit are dependent on the rest of us following the rules when they decide to break them. They give no thought whatsoever that there are tipping points in all things and seem to believe that there will be no consequences for their actions.

My own outrage is building and has been at a furious boil over these last few months and even I have to admit, there are times where I wonder why the crowd just doesn’t say “fuck it” and overrun these supposed guardians of law and order and leave them stripped of weapons, clothes and dignity, bruised and battered in the streets. I am glad that they have resisted that temptation but I suspect that a great deal of it is that these people are better humans than I am.

The thing is national polls don’t matter much. High quality polls out today showed Trump leading in Florida and Arizona, so if he can narrow the gap in Pennsylvania, Trump still has a shot.

I know they don’t matter to the results. But the do (or at least can) matter to the narrative.

I try to discount individual polls and look more at trends. So, yes, two new polls showing Trump leading in Florida and Arizona, but they look like outliers. At least in the sense that Trump is leading, but a lot of states have been within the margin of error, so yeah, lots of toss ups (which is annoying given… waves at everything)

The problem with this analysis is in the part that claims people didn’t know what they were voting for in Trump. They did. Many wanted exactly what they got: a racist, misogynistic theif who validates their own lack of morality. The rest believed the anti Hillary propaganda and believed she was worse even with what they knew. I do not know any Trump voter who was truly unaware of what he was, except possibly by degree.

Hey, Charles, new data point for you. Today, I loaded a page (the one just downstairs, 270 posts) on my iphone (ios13 latest, in Safari) and it did the repeated reload thing, making it impossible to read, of course. It also did this in firefox, also in firefox with images turned off.

So, in Safari, I loaded this page, which is much shorter and loaded without problems. Then I loaded the previous page in another tab — and it loaded nicely and I was able to scroll through it.

Go figure.

French Cuirassiers really did ride into battle dressed like this in 1914. Part of the tragedy of 1914 was that basically 19th century (or even 18th century) armies fought with twentieth century weapons. Compare this image of a cuirassier from 1809, over a hundred years earlier.

Part of the horror of the American Civil War was that it was the confluence of Napoleonic tactics (armies directly engaging each other in massive battles of annihilation) with World War I technology (heavy field artillery, rifles, repeating guns, trenches).

Even the French in 1940, as disparaged as they were and are, fought well when they were in an even fight. What happened at Sedan was the result of the German Army’s best planes, tanks, and soldiers against a grade “B” reserve division that was spread too thin. That’s not a fair fight, no matter whose army is in the field.

I often remark that it was in the mud of the Marne river that the idea of “honorable combat” was snuffed out. The American Civil War had put the nations of the world on notice that the traditional rules of war were doomed, but even up to the Boer War the leaders of Europe kept telling themselves that wars would continue to be fought with all sides “fighting fair.” Took entire generations of men getting blown to bits or left to rot in the mud to put those beliefs to rest.

re: #48 A hollow voice says, Beware the strongman con

Didn’t the Polish military include horse cavalry when WWII started?

Yes, although the stories of Polish soldiers on horseback charging German tanks is largely a myth. The Polish armed forces were actually relatively modern for the era, and they gave the Germans a serious fight. The problems were A) they were fighting a two-front war (Germans and Soviets), B) their most modern weapons were in short supply, and C) their defensive plans assumed rapid relief from their treaty partners (Britain & France).

The legendary French actor and singer Juliette Gréco, whose career spanned more than half a century, has died aged 93, her family has said.

“Juliette Gréco died this Wednesday surrounded by her family in the house she loved so much. Her life was one like no other,” her family said in a statement sent to AFP.

“She was still making French songs shine at the age of 89” when her career was ended by a stroke, it added. She also lost her only daughter, Laurence-Marie, in 2016, the same year.

“I miss it terribly. My reason for living is to sing! To sing is everything, there is the body, the instinct, the head,” she told Télérama magazine in an interview in July.

Most armies did. The US Cavalry didn’t completely give up mounted troops until 1943, and there were many observers who thought that was too soon. The thing that set the Cuirassiers apart was their highly visible uniforms and equipment, polished breastplates and plumed helmets don’t belong in the same century with machine guns and quick-firing artillery.

All of them did, actually.

Yep, the Wehrmacht’s vaunted “blitzkrieg” hid the reality that the tanks either outran their supply lines or were forced to a crawl because their logistics corps were still largely dependent upon draft horses up til the middle of the war. They had transport trucks, just never enough and they never standardized like the Allies did. Combine that with their almost fanatical habit to adopt any foreign-made vehicles that met their immediate needs and you had a quartermaster corps who likely went to bed at night dreaming of parts lists thicker than War & Peace.

Hitler’s call for a halt during the push to the Channel in 1940 was based on his panic that the tanks were outrunning their supply lines; he wanted them to consolidate, lest the mighty French First Army and the BEF to their north coordinate an assault with the remaining forces in the south to cut them off and destroy them.

Well here’s a change from the usual Get Out The Vote ad. No fifes, tricorn hats, or patriotic mush here, just several Atlanta-based exotic dancers who want people to think about voting, because “it’s more than just the president on the ballot, right?” Exactly.

One of the women asks, “So … you’re really not gonna vote?” She does not approve of your indifference, because there are a lot of other offices whose occupants can make a serious difference in your life, so for godssake “Get your booty to the poll.”

Twerking at the poll is optional. (Video contains no nudity but may not be safe for all workplaces, because strippers.)

The spot promotes an eponymous website, getyourbootytothepoll.com, which provides links to all sorts of useful national voter tools to help people check whether they’re registered to vote, and register if they aren’t. The links also include a nifty tool from the League of Women Voters that allows you to print or download a sample ballot for your own area, and another site that provides information on state and local candidates, what their offices do, and local ballot measures, too. Neato!

Yes, we can say “neato” in a post about strippers. They’re civic-minded strippers.

Also, there are some very grumpy wingnuts in the YouTube replies saying the video is a plot by white Democrats to degrade Black women, which may be news to the Black women who made and directed the PSA. CNN entertainment senior writer Lisa Respers France apparently was taken in by the plot, too, proclaiming the spot “the best voting ad campaign” she’s seen yet.

Much like Trump, Hitler really only had two modes: Bragging overconfidence or crippling fear. When he didn’t think he knew so much that he only needed his generals to carry out his brilliant plans, it was because his paranoia that said generals were scheming to overthrow him was flaring up. Even when he ordered a halt due to worry that his mechanized forces might overextend and be annihilated, he tried to BS those around him that it was all about trying to get the Brits to come to the negotiating table.

Charges have been filed in the case of a high school party in Sudbury, Massachusetts, that led to the local school district moving to remote learning for the start of the year, police said Monday.

Parents and a juvenile are facing charges for violating the state’s social host law, Sudbury police said. The parents will face the charges in Framingham District Court while the child’s charge was filed in Framingham Juvenile Court.

Viruses are basically really shitty pieces of code running on unvalidated hardware with little or no error-checking. A good fraction of all virus invasions of cells result in failure to replicate at all because of RNA transcription screwups, many more replications produce non-viable “offspring” that can’t replicate at all in the next generation. Evolution and mutation is what they do and it’s not something we yuu-mans can do anything about, really.

Saying that it’s not something that’s particularly worrisome in medical or epidemiological terms. It does make for some really juicy clickbait headlines though.

Sealion was a joke and I still find it hard to believe that anybody in the Nazi leadership thought of it as anything more than an empty threat made to scare the Brits into surrendering. They needed air dominance to neutralize the threat of RAF fighters shooting down their bombers, they needed more bombers to ever have a hope of putting the Home Fleet out of commission, and they needed the HF taken off the board as a threat if they ever hoped to land enough men and materiel to do more than annoy the Home Guard.

If we can survive until January, we’ll have a competent administration who will manage the crisis. The problem is that they will have to strong-arm people because of all the programming the current administration has put into their robots.

My wife went calling around for a flu vaccine … like last year with both the shingles vaccine and flu vaccine, no one around here has them available.

It’s almost as if a so-called free market can’t ensure distribution to underserved markets, but actually serve the places it makes the most profit.

re: #54 Targetpractice

Yes, although the stories of Polish soldiers on horseback charging German tanks is largely a myth. The Polish armed forces were actually relatively modern for the era, and they gave the Germans a serious fight. The problems were A) they were fighting a two-front war (Germans and Soviets), B) their most modern weapons were in short supply, and C) their defensive plans assumed rapid relief from their treaty partners (Britain & France).

Reminds. I finished a new model plane this week. This is a 1/72 PZL P.37C, the standard Polish bomber in 1939. This was one of the best bombers in the world at the time, with many export inquiries, but it had only entered service the previous year and only about a hundred were available to throw against the might of the Luftwaffe. Even in a desperately one-sided campaign almost half of them survived and fled to Romania, where the local air force used them against the Soviet Union later.
The kit was “ZTS” brand, made in communist Poland around 1975.

I’ve heard of KP from people speaking about them in California before, but never really learned anything about the organisation.

So, I went to learn something. It is a weird for-profit/not-for-profit consortium of organisations.

en.wikipedia.org

Wikipedia also notes that physicians are salaried (like the VA), which means physicians spend more time with patients and offer fewer BS treatments (since they get paid whether they do that or not).

I am glad that they have resisted that temptation but I suspect that a great deal of it is that these people are better humans than I am.

This New Yorker cover is everything to me right now.

Yesterday I was creating an assignment about Immigrants in the 1920s and was watching part of the PBS documentary The Jewish American. Guess who made several appearances - the notorious RBG.

I ended up using about 20 minutes of the doc that included a discussion about college quotas in the 1920s in the assignment. One really interesting tidbit was that colleges put quotas on the number of Jewish students they would accept and not Catholics or African Americans because there were so many Jewish applicants (far more than any other non-white or non-Protestant groups).

Plus, even an extremely lethal disease can still be transmitted. It’s not how lethal the disease is, but how fast you can transmit it.

Smallpox was and tuberculosis is extremely lethal. They’ve both been with us for thousands of years, because people reproduce faster than the diseases kill.

Remember the story in Texas, where the state forced a trans boy to fight as a girl because that’s what he was born as, and won all of the matches?

25 February 2018, The Independent

Transgender wrestler forced to compete in girls tournament is booed after winning in final

They made him do what they wanted, then booed the results.

A transgender athlete forced to wrestle in girls’ competition against his own wishes was booed by crowds after securing a second-straight Texas state title.

Mack Beggs, an 18-year-old senior from Euless Trinity High School near Dallas, entered the tournament in Cypress outside of Houston with an undefeated record.

He overcame Chelsea Sanchez, who he also beat for the title in 2017, in the final of the 110lbs division on Saturday, but video of the competition shows many spectators reacted angrily to his victory.

Plus, even an extremely lethal disease can still be transmitted. It’s not how lethal the disease is, but how fast you can transmit it.

Smallpox was and tuberculosis is extremely lethal. They’ve both been with us for thousands of years, because people reproduce faster than the diseases kill.

You are correct. But covid is rather highly contagious. And like I said, it’s speculation on my part. I haven’t performed any human trials.

On the Covid-19 front here in the Nebraska Panhandle, PPHD has moved every county in the Panhandle except Garden and Deuel into “moderate risk” territory. Only three towns in PPHD have had no cases (mine in Morrill, Lisco and Llewellyn in Garden).

We now have 98 active cases with a 6% positivity rate. The total number of cases have reached 835. Women and girls are still 2/3 of cases. The largest age group is 20-29, followed by 10-19 and 40-49.

Twelve new cases were recorded yesterday.

My favorite insult is to tell people to “put a sock in it.” If I’m really upset, I tell them to get a “gross of sweaty gym socks and stick them into your festering gob.”

Coming home from Denver, we stopped in Sterling, Colorado for gasoline (because Colorado has a mandatory mask order, I figured it was safer than Sidney, Nebraska).

Nevertheless, I had to stop in Sidney for a different reason. Steeling myself for covidiots, I braved my way into Fat Dogs (logo: You Are Nowhere), and lo! Every single person in the place, including small children, were wearing masks. Not a bare face in the place.

These idiots have no freaking clue what transition is or what’s involved. Penis removal seems to be their biggest concern. Because they are disgusting and really ignorant about anything related to actual medical care and what an actual transition, not their fevered dreams, entails. I’m so sick of these awful excuses for humans.

My wife went calling around for a flu vaccine … like last year with both the shingles vaccine and flu vaccine, no one around here has them available.

It’s almost as if a so-called free market can’t ensure distribution to underserved markets, but actually serve the places it makes the most profit.

you were just in Denver. You could have got weed and vaccines.

Chris Hayes just called the assholes with guns playing soldier gangs instead of the usual “militia” nonsense. Good deal. I don’t mind tiny victories.

I think Hayes has been doing a pretty good job of transferring his rage over recent events into his news segments. He’s different than Rachel, but he’s been delivering the goods.

re: #128 Teddy’s Person ✌

This New Yorker cover is everything to me right now.

I ended up using about 20 minutes of the doc that included a discussion about college quotas in the 1920s in the assignment. One really interesting tidbit was that colleges put quotas on the number of Jewish students they would accept and not Catholics or African Americans because there were so many Jewish applicants (far more than any other non-white or non-Protestant groups).

It’s not just that there was lots of Jewish applicants; it’s that Jews obsess about studying and learning the way evangelicals obsess about embryo worship. That’s why we have so many doctors, lawyers and physicists.

Grandma 1: what beautiful grandchildren, how old are they?
Grandma 2: the doctor is 5, the lawyer is 3.

re: #49 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

All of them did, actually.

And cavalry had its place during the war as well. Better mobility than infantry. A number of advantages over motorized vehicles, especially in tight terrain. And fuels with grain or grass instead of requiring gasoline.

Though it helps to realize that they’re more like mounted infantry (dragoons) than something you expect to charge with sabers drawn.

And there was a great demand for mules and donkeys by the otherwise fully motorized US Army during the Italy Campaign. Need something that can handle steep terrain and narrow paths to get supplies up those ridges. (Native bearers did a lot of this equivalent work in New Guinea over in the Pacific; see the
Kokoda Trail campaign.)
