Just for you—Murdaugh update.

His law license has been suspended.

And…According to Fitsnews, the knife that slashed his tire has been traced back to him:

Multiple sources familiar with the investigation into a bizarre Labor Day weekend shooting involving prominent South Carolina attorney R. Alexander “Alex” Murdaugh on Saturday have confirmed to this news outlet that the knife used to puncture a run-flat tire on his Mercedes-Benz sport utility has been recovered.

Ready for the kicker?

According to these sources, the knife in question has been linked to Alex Murdaugh - who was shot while ostensibly “inspecting” a flat tire on the side of a rural Hampton county road on the afternoon of Saturday, September 7, 2021.

Fitsnews can be a wild and wacky site, but over the years, they’ve proven to have some pretty good sources.

so I googled, and

The duty of the Academy’s Board of Visitors is to inquire into the state of morale and discipline, the curriculum, instruction, physical equipment, fiscal affairs, academic methods, and other matters relating to the academy which the Board decides to consider. The Board consists of six members appointed by the President, three appointed by the Vice President, four appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, one designated by the Senate Armed Services Committee and one designated by the House Armed Services Committee. The President of the United States receives an annual written report of the Board’s findings and recommendations.

ETA: I’m guessing they have strong opinions about Critical Race Theory.

Riiiiight….
So they found the knife:
It had traces of matching Mercedes rubber on the blade: it had Murdaugh’s fingerprints on it, the initials “AM” inscribed on the hilt, and a receipt from the knife shop in the glove box.
Local authorities express bafflement, and promise to keep investigating.

I think the fact that the wife and son were killed with two different guns suggests either shenanigans and/or hitmen. But I’ve always thought the father was behind those, even if he didn’t pull the trigger.

What a messed up gang. And there are a few other unsolved deaths that seem to tie back to the family as well.

Lee was a tactical genius and above average strategically, but just like the Japanese in the Pacific in the 1940’s, he was working against an inexorable clock. The Union had the blockade, the industrial might of the foundries of the North, and the manpower. It was only a matter of finding the right man to start grinding away the finely trained and highly spirited soldiers that comprised the core of the Rebel Army, and the raw recruits being dragged in with sub-standard weaponry would be easy pickings.

Disagree: the British disaster which concluded the First Anglo-Afghan War was quite well-known among the 19th-Century military world (if only as a memorable debacle-for-the-ages). Old Bobby -if brought back in 2002 - would probably be astonished at how little the fundamental strategic factors in Afghanistan had changed.

Though I imagine Lee would appreciate the upgrades in weaponry: Kalashnikovs and Stinger missiles get the job done a lot better than Enfield rifles and jezails…….

To be truthful, if you can explain the concepts of modern weaponry to any historical general, they would invent novel strategies to make use of those capabilities. Those would last about as long as any novel strategy invented by any general in the history of ever, that is to say, not very fucking long. Humans are adaptable; that’s what we do, biologically, as a species. A general came up with a new strategic use for cargo planes? Fine, open season with surface-to-air missiles. Etc.

The letter, first reported by Forbes, was addressed to former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, who stepped down in 2017. The current CEO of Yahoo! is Guru Gowrappan.

It is so infuriating to hear praise of a man who was a traitor to this nation and who fought for an evil cause. For years it was common practice in an effort to unite the nation to treat the Confederacy with kid gloves — that we are all Americans. The assassination of Lincoln and then 90 years of Jim Crow and segregation should have demonstrated that this was a fatally flawed approach. There should be no honor accorded to those who led the fight against the United States and no honor or respect accorded to those living today who express any admiration of these enemies of our nation.

re: #34 Dopamine Fish

Lee was a tactical genius and above average strategically, but just like the Japanese in the Pacific in the 1940’s, he was working against an inexorable clock.

Rule 1 of Great Generalship — never start a fight you know you’re going to lose. Lee fails that basic test right out of the gate.

Rule 2 of Great Generalship — when you know you’ve lost, stop fighting. Lee fought through the winter of 1864-65 killing thousands of his own soldiers from cold, disease and hunger rather than admit the Confederacy had lost. He never went cold or hungry himself during that winter, of course.

Once Lee faced competent if uninspired leadership from the Union forces (Grant, Sherman et al) with a reliable political backstop in Lincoln he was totally outclassed. He wasn’t helped by the sack of rabid badgers that passed for a government in the Confederacy. He should have surrendered in late 1863 once he saw how things were going but, well, he was Robert E. Lee.

He had a totally spiffing beard though.

Winning at Gettysburg would’ve been bad for the Union, but not fatal. Vicksburg cut them off from the Great River, and put the final nail in the coffin of the blockade that was strangling the Confederacy. Army prowess means nothing if the Union Navy controls the ports, and blockade runners can’t ship enough supplies to sustain a war long-term. Ask the Japanese about that.

My favorite Confederate Military fact is that the CSS Virginia - their first ironclad, the flagship that they hoped would carry their fledgling fleet to victory over the Union Navy - sailed into combat without a captain because their military bureaucracy was so damn broken that they had a competent officer who was cockblocked from the command by an incompetent officer, and the government didn’t have the authority to tell the incompetent sumbitch to fuck on off to another command.

The Great Generals are accountants at their core. They tell their fighting subordinates what resources they can have and make sure the supply lines, transportation and production is in place to deliver what they need when they need it. That’s what Eisenhower did for the Western Allies in the run-up to D-day for example. Admiral King (Semper Iratus, as Drachinifel describes him) was the same for the US Navy in the Pacific theatre during WWII. The greatest general of all time, Marshal of the Soviet Union Vasilevski architected the fall of Berlin in May 1945 while at the same time making preparations to destroy the Japanese army in Manchuria five thousand miles away just three months later and made it look almost embarrassingly easy.

Prancing around on a white horse and shouting “Charge!” to Pickett’s men does not a Great General make.

Winning at Gettysburg would’ve been bad for the Union, but not fatal. Vicksburg cut them off from the Great River, and put the final nail in the coffin of the blockade that was strangling the Confederacy. Army prowess means nothing if the Union Navy controls the ports, and blockade runners can’t ship enough supplies to sustain a war long-term. Ask the Japanese about that.

“Victory” for Lee at Gettysburg would have been as pointless as most of his other victories. Each one cost him thousands of soldiers he couldn’t afford to lose, while the Union had a near limitless supply of manpower. The end would’ve been the same.

Day before yesterday, a woman from this apartment building was taken by ambulance to the hospital. She was conscious and speaking with the EMTs. She has always breathed really hard, every time I see her, except the day before yesterday. She lives alone, but had a woman helping her yesterday, as she often does.

Seeing the flashing lights and the EMTs increased my anxiety, but seeing things take place in a very matter-of-fact way, and the apparent availability of help at the hospital, was reassuring.

Not sterility. But it has reproductively toxicological effects. Like, causing sperm deformities which may or may not flush out of the system in 9-12 months. Sperm deformities which can cause fetuses to be non-viable, or cause birth defects.

This is what the Swedish medical info system (LIF/FASS) has to say about Ivermectin tablets:
“Djurstudier har visat reproduktionstoxikologiska effekter. Ivermektin ska endast användas under graviditet då det är strikt indicerat.”, which Swedish for
“Animal studies have shown reproductive toxicological effects. Ivermectin should be used during pregnancy only when strictly indicated.” Which I believe is medicalese for “use only when you have to, or as a medication of last resort.”
They even discourage pregnant women or women who want to become pregnant from using the topical cream.
So TL;DR is reproductive toxicity, alas not permanent effects that I can find.

Perhaps the Trumper-types will become addicted to it, thinking it a good thing to guzzle all the time?

Look at how much money homeopathy brings in.

True, 9-12 months after cessation of Ivermectin is assuming people get scared shitless when that effects goes “Peekaboo!” and stop taking it.

re: #170 Teukka

This is what the Swedish medical info system (LIF/FASS) has to say about Ivermectin tablets:
“Djurstudier har visat reproduktionstoxikologiska effekter. Ivermektin ska endast användas under graviditet då det är strikt indicerat.”, which Swedish for
“Animal studies have shown reproductive toxicological effects. Ivermectin should be used during pregnancy only when strictly indicated.” Which I believe is medicalese for “use only when you have to, or as a medication of last resort.”
They even discourage pregnant women or women who want to become pregnant from using the topical cream.
So TL;DR is reproductive toxicity, alas not permanent effects that I can find.

Which means the study in question actually builds on this past work. It may be spurious, it may be valid, but it’s not that surprising of a result.

And the Nigerian study, despite its flaws, shows those effects below the maximum approved dosage of 200µg/kg, namely at 150µg/kg. I can only imagine what effect the gross overdosing some MAGAts are doing will have…

An addendum is that none of the “treatment protocols” I’ve seen warn about this potential effect, especially during prolonged use…

There is some heavy weather coming into the Greater Philadelphia area.

(And they have not fixed the temperature on the front page)

Yup, the Washington, DC region has it too. And from the ‘future’ radar map, it looks like the weather front will extend to North of New York City.

I can already see flashes of lightening to my North. Woo… Hoo… :/

Clueless fuckery is part of our species. Wherever you look you will find people doing stupid things. It’s a wonder we made it down from the trees without falling on our faces.

One of the HGTV shows is called “Help I Wrecked My House”. It’s about a contractor who goes around helping house owners who start remodeling projects that go horribly wrong.

And the reason these projects go horribly wrong is because the house owners are clueless about project managing construction, and usually have no construction/installation experience.

Now that people don’t have this expertise is hardly surprising. But what is really astounding is that people believe that expertise and experience are not needed.

This disregard of expertise is what we find so much in the Trumper mentality. The phenomenon is not limited to the Trumpers, but they are particularly proud of their disregard of expertise.

re: #29 Eclectic Cyborg

Robert E. Lee wouldn’t have a fucking clue what was going on in Afghanistan even if if he could have been brought back from the dead. Sweet Jesus.

Wait, wasn’t he known for his masterful handling of airmobile and heavy armored units?///

A significant required tactical skill in a commander at the time was to understand the capabilities of weaponry at the time and the be able to calculate whether an attack would arrive at the determined location with sufficient effective forces to achieve a decisive result.

Because of the rapidly changing technologies, particularly due to rifling al lot of the older leaders failed at this mission.

Additionally, the commanders needed to understand the combat capability of the units they had as well as those who opposed them. The Union Army of the Potomac, after two years of combat experience, was finally reaching a level of professional capability and resilience that the Confederate forces had achieved a year earlier.

In Pickett’s Charge, Lee was betting that the Union Army had either run out of reserves or would be unable to redeploy them to the threatened sector in time. He was almost right. By the way, he committed almost every effective unit he had remaining in his Army into that attack.

AFAIK the only Confederate general who actually participated in Reconstruction in a positive way (i.e. not running around with the KKK) was Longstreet.

He really wasn’t close to right, and he got thousands of his troops killed. But let’s pretend he had been right. He would’ve “won” some high ground at the cost of thousands of casualties, and still would’ve had to withdraw to Virginia because he exhausted his artillery supplies. His dream that he could break the Army of the Potomac was a fantasy. Lee lost the Battle of Gettysburg the day he decided to fight it.

Get vaxxed and have a distinguished career in service.

It’s a volunteer army; they were not drafted. How they could not know after their time in the service, that they have no choice in following legal orders? Their objection is due solely to the propaganda fed them through RW organizations. They deserve at least a general discharge, if not a dishonorable discharge.

While there are differing opinions on the status of the Union and Confederate Armies on July 3rd. I have to agree with your point that what actually happened was that the Union Army had sufficient forces to decisively defeat the July 3rd attack.

And I agree that even had the Confederates actually somehow driven the Union Army off of Cemetery Ridge, the were unlikely to have been able to follow up. They had less than 1/3rd of their Army combat effective; tens of thousands of wounded; and as you point out, were just about out of supplies. Plus they were in the middle of a lot of major Union cities with a lot of troops and militia. (Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC.)

I suspect that you have read about the Lee’s retreat after Gettysburg where he had to abandon thousands of his wounded as well as stragglers and supply train wagons, in order to make it to the Potomac before the Union Army could. Even so, the Confederates barely made it across the Potomac. (Which was flooding at the time, precluding immediate Union followup.)
