Here’s something that none of Rittenhouse’s defenders can dispute beyond engaging in whataboustism: If Kyle Rittenhouse had not been breaking the law that night, then three men would not have been shot and he would not be on trial.

He was in possession of a firearm he did not legally purchase and could not legally possess, as well as being in violation of the very same curfew that others were arrested that same evening for violating.

Came across this on my Twitter feeds. It’s an article from the Daily Bruin (UCLA).
Written by Ben Shapiro. Dated 2001. It reads like Ben Shapiro. The usual stupid humor and concerns. Was he at UCLA in 2001? No idea

 Ben Shapiro Shapiro is a first-year
philosophy student bringing reason to the masses.

read it and you will want to punch him. He’s also the worst person to invite to a party.

Sounds like you much prefer the more complex wines.

I was just looking at how it is made. The process is different than that of ‘normal’ wines. And means that the Beaujolis Nouveau taste is less ‘complex’ (has fewer chemical compounds). Which means that the fruit taste is more pronounced.

One of the pleasures of applied chemistry.

Yep it maxed out at $4.75ish in San Diego County (except for the trap stations) around then.

And oil was $120/barrel then. So why is gas higher now when it’s about $85/barrel?

Distribution bottlenecks, primarily tanker truck drivers. There is no oil shortage nor is there a projected one in the near-term, but if you can’t move the finished product effectively then there might as well be one.

I’ve been using my e-bike for errands in the area. I rode to the bank yesterday, today I went to CVS but they charged too much for what I wanted I rode to the other side of town and got it at Target. I had to ride up and down the Target mall area twice looking for a bike rack. they had it buried with parked shopping carts. I found the end and had enough room to lock the bike. Later in the day my wife needed her prescription picked up so I biked to the medical center. I drive my car maybe once a week. Bike rack availability at shopping areas, lack of bike lanes, and decent ADA ramps on pork chop islands at intersections are the main hindrances for going green on an e-bike.

hi

Throughout the history of Christendom there have been so-called Satanic Panics; Q-Anon is only the latest version of a story two thousand years old. Specific details change, but the core remains: There is a satanic cabal, bent on abusing or destroying children; they are very powerful, and anyone can become the next victim.

The CBC has a seven-part audio series on how the Satanic Panic of the Eighties swept into the town of Martensville, Saskatchewan (a suburb of Saskatoon less than ten thousand people), all on the allegation of a single parent who alleged her child was sexually abused. When examined by a physician, that was found to be false. But it was too late.

At the height of Martenville’s panic, the police department itself was accused of being Satanists abusing children. Even to this day, the town is recovering from the effects of the psychic destruction of the town, those accused, and those put on trial for hundreds of charges of child abuse.

The story starts with a woman who was an officer of the RCMP in Manitoba who had resigned because her husband took a job in Saskatoon. The Martensville Police Department was very short-handed because several officers were benched due to unrelated causes. The police department asked her if she would become a temporary constable.

The day after she took her temporary position was when the first allegation came in. She says if she knew then what she knows now, she would have run the other way when the police department offered her the temporary constable position.

re: #45 Anymouse 🌹🏡😷

Q-Anon is basically the Grand Unified Theory of Anti-Semitism and UN/Illuminati Conspiracy theories.

The closest thing to the Satanic Panic right now is either… the “Fentanyl Crisis” or “Antifa” as an actual organization.

Both are horseshit. Both are generally believed by scared old white people and cops, and often are just glossed over by journalists as if it’s true without questioning.

Same shit with satanic cults being “responsible” for various crime in the 80s.

QA is just the 80s “Satanic panic” with the serial numbers filed off. The basic framework remains the same, the only major differences are that the targets have changed and the internet has allowed the panic to spread wider and faster than did pulpy novels and dead-eyed “investigative reporters.”

In the radio broadcast, one of the people interviewed is a journalist. He notes that the story was catnip, and he bit hard at the time.

Fentanyl being sold illegally is a problem, but again, catnip for lazy reporters.

UN conspiracy theories of course only came into existence after the UN did. We can thank folks like the John Birch Society for that.

In the USA, Satanic Panics go back to the Salem Witch Trials (no anti-Semitism or Illuminati then).

The radio broadcast notes that even today, no one wants to talk about what happened in the late Eighties in Martenville.

Early nineties, actually. But yeah, it reads like the usual stuff when a Satanic Panic gets going… Innocent people convicted, some are sitting of their sentences to this day, some even died in prison. Some have gotten justice.

And I’m the pedophile hugger when I urge caution when a case is developing… Not to mention what I get called when I’ve seen enough to a call case what it is… Every innocent convicted is a nail in the coffin for the victims of (child) sexual abuse. And the false reporting rate for those crimes is the same as for other crimes.

In LA at about the same time was the McMartin Preschool case.

The McMartin preschool trial was a day care sexual abuse case in the 1980s, prosecuted by the Los Angeles District Attorney Ira Reiner. Members of the McMartin family, who operated a preschool in Manhattan Beach, California, were charged with hundreds of acts of sexual abuse of children in their care. Accusations were made in 1983, arrests and the pretrial investigation took place from 1984 to 1987, and trials ran from 1987 to 1990. The case lasted seven years but resulted in no convictions, and all charges were dropped in 1990. By the case’s end, it had become the longest and most expensive in American history. The case was part of day-care sex-abuse hysteria, a moral panic over alleged Satanic ritual abuse in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Collective shame. The instigators feel ashamed at what they caused, even if they will argue in the presence of others that they did what they felt was “right.” Those who fed fuel to the fires fear the loss of face that admitting their shame would bring. And the victims have been forced to remain silent so that the former two groups are not constantly reminded of their own shame.

One of the child victims of the feeding frenzy of the press is eager to talk about the issue,

I0MQaccwtEkCNGS2FvuO3HgcYtu2FhC8BWL2EBykNBk=

she was ripped away from her home by social workers and kept from her family. She says it damaged her relationship with her father for the rest of his days, as he was so afraid of showing affection to his daughter he would no longer hug or play with her for fear of another accusation.

She notes her family was conservative Christians, and when the RCMP was trying to get her to identify on the dolls where she was hurt, she was mortified.

She is no longer a Christian, nor is anyone in her family. They destroyed her family.

The unusual feature of the Martensville cases was the accused were members of the police department.

The Crown’s case against them had no physical evidence at all. None. No blood, no semen, no hair, no evidence that any children were ever held at the alleged location of the “satanic church.” No lineups were ever done of the accused police officers.

The Crown alleged that was more proof of the conspiracy: Who would know better how to destroy evidence than police officers? In the first case the officer was convicted. In the second case, the judge actually held a lineup for the children, none of whom identified him. He was acquitted.

The boy mentioned something in day-care about how “daddy plays with my pee-pee in the bathtub” and was whisked away by the authorities without asking any questions about what might have prompted such an utterance.

Funny how we went from totally ignoring/suppressing cases of child abuse (especially at the hands of the church) to over-reacting to the most superficial signs of it.

These Corporations Funded The Co-Sponsors Of Ohio’s Proposed Abortion Ban

Health care companies like Pfizer and Anthem donated to GOP lawmakers who are backing H.B. 480, which aims to ban abortion at any stage in pregnancy.

A number of health care companies and major corporations have made campaign contributions to two dozen Ohio state lawmakers who are co-sponsoring new legislation to ban abortion in the state.

A new report from UltraViolet, a national gender-justice organization, identified 38 companies that gave more than $132,000 last year to Ohio lawmakers who are backing the anti-abortion bill introduced last week. That list includes health care companies such as Pfizer, Anthem, Molina Healthcare and Merck. Other donors include telecommunications company Charter Communications, Dominion Energy and General Motors. UltraViolet sourced much of its report through OpenSecrets, a nonprofit that tracks political spending.

“Where you decide to spend your political dollar ― in this case literal dollars ― is a huge barometer of your values and who or what you’re willing to sacrifice,” said Sonja Spoo, director of reproductive rights campaigns at UltraViolet. “Corporations are directly funding the erosion of our rights with their political dollars.”

The bill is similar to the Texas bill, except it bans all abortion.

Covid still sux in my area.

Panhandle Public Health District Dashboard

Population: 82,962 (2019)
Last seven days: 250 cases
Case rate: 289.8/100,000
Most cases by age: 20-29, then 30-39
Positivity rate: 13.5%
Fully vaccinated: 39%

The PPHD dashboard once again is separated by counties (the dashboard has whiplash).

Morrill County population: 4,836 (2017)
Last seven days: 24 cases
Case rate: 599/100,000 (highest case rate of the Panhandle plus Grant Co.)
Risk factor: LOL (100/100,000 is “high”)

My wife and I went to the store after the cardiologist yesterday (doc says I’m alive, that’s good to know).

There was a woman telling another (neither wearing masks, the rate in the store was about 20%) that her son had Covid-19 and drank a whole gallon of orange juice the day before. She was there to buy another gallon.

My wife and I put a whole lot of distance between her and us, and got the hell out of there as soon as possible.

The whole Satanic Panic got its start from the book Michelle Remembers (Wikipedia).

Michelle Remembers is a discredited 1980 book co-written by Canadian psychiatrist Lawrence Pazder and his psychiatric patient (and eventual wife) Michelle Smith.[1] A best-seller, Michelle Remembers relied on the discredited practice of recovered-memory therapy to make sweeping, lurid claims about satanic ritual abuse involving Smith that contributed to the rise of the Satanic ritual abuse moral panic in the 1980s.[2][3] While the book presents its claims as fact, and was extensively marketed on that basis at the time, no evidence was provided; all investigations into the book failed to corroborate any of its claims, with investigators describing its content as being primarily based on elements of popular culture and fiction that were popular at the time when it was written.[4][5]

(more, including how the book was debunked)

We also have Oprah Winfrey to thank for promoting the authors on her show, which caused the whole thing to take off.

The book was used by trainers who went around Canada and the United States training police, teachers, social workers, &c and was presented as fact. Cases of so-called Satanic Ritual Abuse would then be reported in the area of said conferences shortly thereafter.

Russia is carrying out snap military drills in Belarus just a few miles from the Polish border today, as fears grow that Vladimir Putin is preparing for an invasion in eastern Europe.

Russia’s defence ministry said the unannounced drill involved paratroopers from both countries dropping at the Gozhsky range, just 20 miles from where thousands of migrants are gathered at the Polish border, where they practiced capturing bridges as well as hunting down and destroying enemy patrols.

Belarus said the drill was in response to the ‘build-up of military activity’ at the Polish border, where 15,000 troops have been stationed to hold back the migrants, while Russia said it was to test the ‘combat readiness’ of its troops.

Welcome to September 2005, when gas prices soared to $3.19 a gallon after Dubya utterly botched the response to Katrina. Granted, gas is $3.72 today, but inflationwise, it’s still cheaper as $3.19 in 2005 is $4.52 today.

It’s $3.24 here in the wild north country. That doesn’t bother me at all; I’ve seen gas prices that high not too long ago. But I’m an intelligent voter who understands that the administration in the White House generally has little impact on gas prices unless they do something abysmally stupid, such as, say, threaten a trade war with China.

It’s not that I don’t find the cartoon funny, but its overall thesis of “The GOP is willingly destroying itself” just isn’t true. It’s not even close. It’s like when Bob Cessca says on his podcast “Trump only makes things worse for Trump” ad nauseam. This mindset assumes facts not evidence.

I have yet to see any evidence that either Trump or the GOP have truly destroyed themselves. Trump may have lost the election, but he literally tried to instigate a coup and will most likely go to his grave getting away with it. Along with all the other crimes he’s committed over the decades. He still has money and he still controls the GOP.

How the fuck is that making things worse for himself?

Same with the GOP. They may not have literal control of the government, but they tend to get what they want (no taxes on the rich, restricted abortion, disenfranchising minority voters, etc). They’re on the verge of realizing Karl Rove’s permanent majority, twenty years later.

It’s a funny cartoon but this idea that the GOP is on its way out relies heavily on our idiot independent voters doing the right thing. Which is a fucking fantasy.

I have 7 silver dollars my Grandmother Mitchell gave me when I turned 7. Kept them all these years as a reminder of her love.

Remember back in college when the Young Libertarian Alliance was endlessly preaching about how Americans lost their freedom when FDR removed all the gold coins and LBJ removed the silver coins…

Libertarians treat the gold standard something like holy writ. They uphold it as if that is the solution to all the nation’s economic ills, much like a religious tenet.

In real life, under the gold standard there were frequent “panics” (recessions or depressions) and agricultural states like mine were constantly hammered with a shortage of credit necessary for farming or ranching business.

LOL, I’d love it but the only way that’s going to happen is if the Cletus Safari subjects start openly attacking and killing CNN employees.

Plus everything Democrats accomplish, Republicans rush right home and take credit for.

Those who don’t closely follow politics don’t realise that their representative or senator voted against those things. They just see money coming in for local projects and their representative or senator claiming they worked to get that.

Right now here there is a project to widen US-385 between Bridgeport and Alliance. That money comes from Democratic bills, but my rep is right out front claiming credit for it. The regional newspaper doesn’t report he had nothing to do with it, nor do local radio stations.

It’s $3.24 here in the wild north country. That doesn’t bother me at all; I’ve seen gas prices that high not too long ago. But I’m an intelligent voter who understands that the administration in the White House generally has little impact on gas prices unless they do something abysmally stupid, such as, say, threaten a trade war with China.

We all know what that means in terms of RW narrative: that the America-hating, tree-hugging liberals cancelled pipelines, abolished permits for drilling offshore and on public lands, and instituted even more invasive, useless and pesky government safety, health and environmental regulations.

Anti-Vaxxers’ New Grift: Useless ‘Detox’ Baths for the Reluctantly Vaccinated

Anti-vaxxers who have had to cave to COVID vaccine mandates are turning to bizarre—and totally useless—“detox” baths to rid themselves of fictional poisons, according to NBC News. In one TikTok video with hundreds of thousands of views, Dr. Carrie Madej told followers to run a bath with baking soda, epsom salts, and benonite clay to remove radiation, unspecified poisons, and nanotechnologies that she falsely believes are in the vaccine.

Unfortunately for her, the lifesaving effects of the vaccine take hold very quickly—“basically, by the time you get out to your car,” one virologist told NBC. Nevertheless, the new grift is taking hold as more and more Americans decide to get vaccinated. With 70 percent of the country vaccinated, and anti-vaxxers’ dire warnings of mass deaths and infertility not coming true, anti-vaxxers are pivoting to the “reluctantly vaxxed” market.

I just read this updated CNN intro to the men—NOT VICTIMS, says the judge—whom Rittenhouse shot. I see that two of the families are suing various entities in Kenosha claiming coordination between LE and white nationalist militias that played a role in heightening tensions and conflict leading to the shootings. I don’t know how that will go, but the framing of the case now in court so narrowly makes it easy to forget how fucked up things were that day and all the images of cops chatting with long-gun carrying meatheads.

But yesterday he got into one of his hair-on-fire rants about how DOJ isn’t moving fast enough for him, all is lost, Dems are gonna lose the House. A valid rant to a point, but he took it to such an extreme that one of his followers replied that he should chill. Not insulting or anything, just ‘You should chill.’

That prompted him to go off on the commenter, going on about how his tweets get millions of reads per month and the commenter clearly shouldn’t come at someone with a widely-followed Twitter account.

This morning he’s still at it, going on about how people with small Twitter accounts shouldn’t go after people with big Twitter accounts (like him), because if they do they’ll deserve all the ridicule and abuse they get.

Fuentes’ illness couldn’t come at a worse time, as his white nationalist “groyper army” is planning to hold another anti-COVID-19 vaccine protest on Saturday afternoon. That said, the irony appeared not to be lost on the college dropout. “Kind of ironic,” he stated. “Lol.” Fuentes didn’t immediately return a Daily Beast request for comment.

“Big” social media posters, especially the substack/patreon crowd, have an engagement problem. Unless you’re analyzing, or “analyzing”, the news, or sports, or celebrities, one single person is going to run out of interesting topics in their area of expertise after a certain amount of time.

Then, you can either start talking about something else, which pisses off your subscribers who subscribed for what you originally talked about, or you can repeat yourself, which pisses them off for another reason (except for the MAGAts, who enjoy the same crap reheated over and over, and even then it’s tricky).

So, the third option is to pander. Give your base whatever it wants, just make ‘em mad about something they already believe, rightly or not, and up the dose when people get bored. I think Koo Koo Kendzior has been calling Garland a Putin agent recently, so like and subscribe!

The other problem on top of the engagement problem is that you’re competing with other people delivering the same outrage product, so you have to up the volume to compete. There’s also nobody in charge of anything that can or will tamp things down when they get out of hand, so everyone is just making more and more outrageous shit up and not caring what happens because of it.

This is, ironically, the same problem that the authoritarian targets of the “left” outrage have. For the GOP, and to a certain extent the Russian power structure, there are all sorts of strivers and power centers who are trying to get favor and advantage, and therefore saying and doing more outrageous shit to one-up the competition. Nobody cares what happens because of it, because few are (yet) held to account.

I’m saying “yet” because the Father Coughlins and Senator McCarthys of the world do tend to blow up when the winds change, and just because a lot of the loudmouths are enjoying their coyote time right now doesn’t mean it lasts forever.

It honestly seems like way too many have truly internalized the same ‘Dems are really to blame for everything’ mindset that the same legacy media they aimed to rebut and replace have. Somehow, again, the GOP is treated as not having any agency, and as a primal force of nature without direction somehow, and thus pointless to blame or fight against. Meanwhile, Dems are somehow the true roadblocks to everything because they don’t take the GOP’s exact tactics and use them from the left, or they don’t move fast enough because they actually follow procedure rather than fling feces toward a fan and see what gets hit.

It’s honest to god frustrating, and this is from someone who often decried how timid the Obama admin could be at times. There’s just little recognition of how stacked the deck is at points and just the assumption that ‘if the evil obstructionist Dems are for it, we must be against it because everything they do must be wrong somehow by definition’.

That’s what I meant about doing it wrong.

In Germany, even the people who call themselves “religious” tend to see the Church as a primarily social/cultural institution: their family has been living in the same village and going to same church for centuries, it is only natural that they should be baptized/married/buried there.

We were not even members of the church, but we regularly participated in the kiddie Christmas services at our village chapel, just out of a sense of community.

Just asking the questions is an awful strategy for reporting news, but it’s a time tested lazy one.

We know how and why covid19 is spreading where it does.

Covid loves spreading among the unvaccinated. It’s highly correlated to the places least likely to be vaccinated. Even in high vaccination states there are low vaccination rate counties, just as there are high vaccination counties in low vaccination rate states because some localities have gone against the wishes of the GOP shitmongers and their cruel policies to vaccinate their local residents as best as they can.

Case rates have never been the ideal metric because so many cases have never been officially counted. But hospitalizations and deaths tell the real story. And let’s not forget these numbers can also reflect new variants that are more contagious or lethal or not controlled by the current vaccines. The flu vaccine requires new formulations annually; this may also turn out to be true for the coronavirus (yes, I know, it doesn’t mutate as fast as the flu — but it does mutate).

It’s not just stupid. It’s an attempted crime. Imagine if you will that the vaccine countermeasure actually worked. Then they go to work unprotected. To church, shopping. A surge just waiting for a chance to happen. They want to endanger us all for their false sense of freedom.

You have not sufficiently accounted for the mindset of antivaxxers. They are convinced that the vaccine prevents nothing (some of them would say that there’s no disease to protect from, others that the vaccine causes covid), and that it’s being provided in order to do those bad things the bath saves them from. So no, they’re not trying to endanger anyone — they’re too far submerged in the pile of manure that is antivax “thought.”

I’ve had the thought that what looks like slow-walking might be more about timing.

How damaging would it be to the GOP’s prospects in the mid-terms if there are full-blown hearings going on in the weeks before the election? How would a new revelation or two per week impact House elections - especially if it comes out that many House members were directly involved in the insurrection?

The ones I know think that “natural” immunity is the best and that for younger people the vaccine is not needed because they will survive the disease and thereby have much more effective protection than this insufficiently tested vaccine.
