    The US is full of people who think this is in no way shape or form ... over. Full is an exageration, but there are a lot of them. House at the roadfront of my (newish - 12 year old)...

    A few decades hence, computational historians analyzing petabytes (or more) of timestamped primary sources will work out how Trump lost power, and identify the causal nexuses of his defeat. (And also of his rise.) There will be surprises. Published contemporary...

    He didn't start a war or bomb anyone. He spent some time last night working out the final pardon lineup. In particular S. Bannon's pardon got a lot of back-and-forth time, I am sure. S. Bannon has been credibly charged...

    This is why removal of D.J.Trump and his backers from power was important, and why keeping willfully ignorant Rs like Shimkus from power (by keeping D control of the House of Representatives) was important, and why winning the Senate was...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    the leader of the Martian government bears the title "Elon". You made me look. :-) Project MARS(Das Marsprojekt) (Dr. Wernher von Braun, English translation by Henry 1 White, Lt. Cdr. USN) Chapter 24 How Mars is Governed ... The Martian...

    Just out of curiosity, if it can't be flown from Stewart even with a rented engine, how are they going to get it to Louisiana? The story is that they can use an engine for one takeoff and landing, from...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    The Israelis are attempting to provoke a response (and using Iranian restraint while waiting for Trump to leave office as a freebie to kill at will). Massive Israeli Raid Hits Iranian Targets in Syria (Rick Moran, Jan 15, 2021) In...

    Just drove over to Stewart International Airport to check the status of Trump Force One/N757AF/T-Bird, the Trump-org-controlled 757. It is very clearly visible (gaudy, really, even without binoculars) from a public road and was still missing the port engine, as...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    That's not Trump (Trump is focused on his personal misery); it's one of his Cabinet, who has been on a wrecking mission the couple of months. (Like Pompeo.) David Bernhardt, US secretary of the interior., and also his loyal subordinates....

    they do deeply desire to murder and have blood I like your analysis, thanks. For those who don't believe it, here's some Parler content courtesy of AWS who was complaining about unmoderated violent content in a court filing. This is...

    What you describe here is the original definition of "concentration camp", which only acquired its modern usage and connotations after being used euphemistically by Germany. (Seen somewhere on twitter today; this is from Google translate): [tr: "Audio: Belarusian authorities discuss...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    It seems to me this was a fairly well organised coup attempt, and that Trump was very unlucky it didn’t succeed. There's a softer variations on that theme, as well. A tweet thread [1] a few days ago lays out...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I grabbed a torrent of some recent Parler text scrapes (html), about 23 GB, and have been scripting walking through it. So much disinformation believed by so many. I may never forgive those who constructed the vilest of the false...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I suspect that if you carefully examined your own thoughts you'd find a similar mix, though quite plausibly with an extremely different set of implementing methods. (Re meta-cognition such as you suggest, I've known how to suck those eggs for...

    Conservatives Accuse Nature Of Silencing Right-Wing Voices After Sheldon Adelson Dies At 87 (The Onion, 12 Jan 2021) At press time, right-wing leaders were urging fellow Republicans to boycott nature by setting fire to their lawns. However, Widow Adelson is...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I don't know if anyone has investigated the differences between verbal and non-verbal thinkers. I did an obvious google scholar search and found that there is a camp that does not believe in non-verbal thinking. Won't read people who believe...

    Or Pompeo in charge of a truly Xtian white-wing party - though that can be defeated if everybody else sticks together & resists "wedges" Pompeo is an arrogant asshole. He's not stupid but he is breathtakingly arrogant. This is a...

    Haven't verified yet that the distributed scraping crash project actually happened (certainly flushing some game) and/or what state/location the results are currently in. Anyone? (Continuing to look, just typing up a few notes first.) Interesting twitter account. https://twitter.com/donk_enby (Thanks to...

    Snopes says that the story about the insurrectionist tasing himself in the testicles and dying of a heart attack is false. (Well, half true; he did die suddenly of a heart attack.) This story is holding up: Pro-Trump protester who...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    And how do you justify blaming schools for any mid-September or later surge, when there are other potential causes - including cooler weather, the starting up of indoor hockey, etc. My take, perhaps missing some important additional dynamics: September in...

    Their lawyers dropped them: Parler CEO Says Service Dropped By “Every Vendor” And Could End His Business (Bruce Haring, January 10, 2021) “Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the...

    Interesting. Plenty of details at the link. Basically, AWS has been complaining about violence-advocating content on Parler for weeks, and Parler has been unwilling to take strong measures to moderate. AWS will preserve their data and says that it will...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    As I like to say, murder-suicides never seem quite competent to do it in the right order, and Trumpism as a death cult is, well, on-brand, nei? We perhaps were not being clear. DJT has in his immediate vicinity the...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Trump is also a Narcissist - so other people don't matter. So, if he commits suicide, how many other "unimportant" people does he want to take with him? People here have a generally low opinion of psychiatry but here are...

    Oh shit Only hope is the military refusing the order, if it comes. Yeah, oh shit. A few counterpoints though that people have been discussing today, paraphrased (I'm a non-military person): - The "Football" is said to contain a (logically;...

    Demographics aren't changing all that much on a national basis at the entry (youth) or exit (seniors) stages making 'swing voters' the likely target in future elections. The (US) Georgia 3 Nov general election (president, senators) and 5 Jan runoff...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I find it incredible that anyone thinks that it could have been even an incompetently planned coup. It had NONE of the characteristics of one, and all of the characteristics of a whipped-up but spontaneous mob. You are IMO correct....
