End stage of socialism - Venezuela

Their infrastructure is falling apart - from Reuters:

Widespread blackout hits Venezuela, government blames 'electromagnetic attack'
More than half of Venezuela's 23 states lost power on Monday, according to Reuters witnesses and reports on social media, a blackout the government blamed on an "electromagnetic attack."

It was the first blackout to include the capital, Caracas, since March, when the government blamed the opposition and United States for a series of power outages that left millions of people without running water and telecommunications.

The blackouts exacerbated an economic crisis that has halved the size of the economy.

Venezuelan Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said the outage on Monday was caused by an "electromagnetic attack," without providing evidence. He added that authorities were in the process of re-establishing service.

The Maduro regieme can not admit that their policies have caused this. It is always something external done to Venezuela by their enemies. Propeganda for the masses.

From the Washington Examiner:

Deregulation explodes under Trump, 13 regulations killed for every new one, $33B saved
It was an odd, geeky campaign promise for a populist presidential candidate to make. But when Donald Trump in 2016 pledged to kill two Obama-era regulations for every new one, crowds went wild.

Those cheers stuck with him when he moved into the White House, and he put his promise into an executive order. And now as he opens his reelection campaign, Russ Vought, acting budget office director, has delivered the results sure to win even more rally cheers.

“We’ve hit 13 to 1,” he told a Heritage Foundation conference on federalism. And cutting so many regulations, he added, has saved taxpayers $33 billion.

Departments and agencies including the departments of Labor, Education, Agriculture, and the Environmental Protection Agency have led the war on regulations, according to federal reports.

Great news - the majority of these regulations are not well thought out and are targeted to benefit a specific group of lobbyists. These are allowing the unelected bureaucrats in government to effectively circumvent the legislative process.

Clear the lot of them out - let's get back to business.

No love from Craigslist

| No Comments

They rejected my offers. They were hoping to recover their costs. This is used equipment we are talking about and no way to tell if it has been "Bubba'd" or not. The air compressor was especially egregious - it looked to be in great shape so I offered 80% of today's list. They said no - it was worth more than that. Over a year old. Zero documentation regarding oil changes (just as important as with car engines - a sure way to blow things up if you do not do them).

Busy day today

Did some food shopping, more work on the antenna (need to bring my tall extension ladder down from the farm) and getting a large tub ready for planting. I have chives, mint and horseradish all of which are very invasive. Putting them into a medium-size horse watering tub (20 gallons) and that will keep them happy but in their place.

Meeting tomorrow and then farmer's market. Farm Wednesday.

Go medieval - from Breitbart:

Dr. Drew: Los Angeles Faces Imminent Outbreak of Bubonic Plague
Dr. Drew Pinsky said Friday that Los Angeles faces an imminent outbreak of bubonic plague because of the growth of the homeless population and the failure of state and local authorities to deal with rodent problems.

Dr. Drew made his comments during a Periscope broadcast by Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who has become a popular political pundit with a daily live audience of thousands of people.

Dr. Drew told Adams that he had predicted the recent typhus outbreak in Los Angeles, which was carried by rats, transferred by fleas to pets, and from pets to humans.

Bubonic plague, Dr. Drew said, like typhus, is endemic to the region, and can spread to humans from rodents in a similar fashion.

Though commonly recognized as the medieval disease responsible for the Black Death in the fourteenth century, which killed one-third of the population of Europe, the last outbreak of bubonic plague in the U.S. was nearly a century ago, from 1924 to 1925 — also in Los Angeles. Only a “heroic effort” by doctors stopped it, Dr. Drew recalled, warning that conditions were perfect for another outbreak of the plague in the near future.

Los Angeles is one of the only cities in the country, Dr. Drew said, that has no rodent control plan. “And if you look at the pictures of Los Angeles, you will see that the homeless encampments are surrounded by dumps. People defecate there, they throw their trash there, and the rats just proliferate there.”

The liberals want to protect us from global warming and pollution but they can not run a city. Not one city.

A Nation of Deplorables

| No Comments

Looks like Crooked Hillary's Basket of Deplorables is what the current Democratic Party is running on. Town Hall:

The Democrats’ 2020 Campaign Theme Is 'You Americans Are Terrible'
The Democrats’ 2020 theme is that you are terrible and the party’s slogan will be “Americans suck, vote for us.” The precise candidate who will employ it is not important because they all embrace the notion that punishing the essential moral failure of you and me and every other Normal American is the key goal of the Donkey Party. That goes equally for the Handsey Old Prospector, the Socialist Squaw, Crusty the Commie, Spartacus Sharpton, Starchild, the Furry, Not Ms. Willie Brown, the Unfabulous Gay Guy, and the many Unfabulous Ungay Guys.

They all agree that you are terrible because you don’t know your place, which is behind a rock pushing it endlessly uphill for the benefit of people who hate you.

Remember Animal Farm from back when you were in school and they taught it as a chilling warning about socialism instead of as a how-to manual? Remember the horse who got worked nearly to death then got sent to the glue farm?

Guess what? You’re the horse.

Heh - they have nothing. If John Fitzgerald Kennedy was running today, I would vote for him in a heartbeat. The dems really need to take a long hard look at who they are and think about where they are headed.

From NBC News:

U.S. military has begun reestablishing air base inside Saudi Arabia
In June the U.S. military began moving equipment and hundreds of troops back to a military base in Saudi Arabia that the U.S. deserted more than 15 years ago, according to two U.S. officials familiar with the deployment.

Over the coming weeks the deployment to Prince Sultan Air Base, intended to counter the threat from Iran, will grow to include fighter jets and Patriot long-range missile defense systems, the officials said. The Patriots have already arrived at the base and should be operational in mid-July, while the aircraft are expected to arrive in August.

Several hundred U.S. service members are already on site preparing the facility south of Riyadh, which is controlled by the Royal Saudi Air Force, a number that will grown to more than 500 after the arrival of an air squadron.

Looks like the mullahs in Iran are going to be taken down a notch or three. Good. The Saudi's are our allies - they are not ideologically aligned with us but they perceive that there is a common enemy and are working with us to defeat it.

Nothing catches my eye on the internet. Heading out for coffee, drop a book off at the library and then home to work on some stuff - finishing off the WSPR antenna. Been reading Dewey Lambdin's series featuring Alan Lewrie. Very chronological so you will want to start with The King's Coat. A lot of fun.

Saw an interesting sale on Craigslist and will be emailing them a bid for some tools. I think that they want too much for their stuff but will see if they accept my offers. Nice small metal lathe and engine hoist. Really nice air compressor. The guy was really trying to up-sell me, telling me how new everything was and how little use it had received all the while there was a lot of accumulated dust and dirt. All boils down to how much he wants to sell his stuff for.

To paraphrase advertising from Lagunitas Brewery - from FOX News:

Republicans raise $20.7M in June -- more than double Dems' $8.5M haul
The Republican National Committee raised more than twice as much as the Democratic National Committee in June – $20.7 million compared to the DNC’s $8.5 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings, Politico reported.

“Our record-smashing fundraising haul is a testament to the ongoing enthusiasm for President Trump and the pro-growth agenda that is delivering for every American across this country," GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to Fox News last week.

The RNC currently has $43.5 million, more than double the cash on hand as the DNC’s $9.3 million.

And despite this, they are not managing their money very well:

The DNC spent heavily on events related to the debates and the presidential candidates last month, including $221,000 for catering and $61,000 for event decorations for a total of $7.5 million, according to Politico.

“They need to get their s-- together. Now,” Adam Parkhomenko, a former DNC national field director, told Vice.

“When Hillary became the nominee in 2016 she was handed nothing, the DNC was nothing and there was nothing to build on. You’d think we would have spent the last few years making sure this would never happen again, and it has,” he said.

Republicans have one candidate with leadership and ideas. The Democrats have twenty candidates and a progressive narrative - no leadership and no ideas. Want to see what a Democratic Presidential victory will do to our nation? Take a good hard look at how they are running their own party into the ground.

Also, not to quibble but $43.5 million is a lot more than double $9.3 million. It is 467.7% - a lot more than "more than double".

Yes! More nuclear

Great news from the Idaho News:

Plan to build first small US nuclear reactors in Idaho advances
A plan to build the nation's first small modular nuclear reactors to produce commercial power is a step closer.

A Utah-based energy cooperative said Wednesday that it has sales contracts for enough carbon-free power to begin a license application process with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to build the reactors in eastern Idaho.

Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems already has agreements with the U.S. Department of Energy to build the reactors at the federal agency's 890-square-mile (2,300-square-kilometer) site that includes the Idaho National Laboratory.

A small modular nuclear reactor can produce about 60 megawatts, or enough to power more than 50,000 homes. The proposed project includes 12 small modular reactors.

The energy cooperative says it has carbon-free contracts for more than 150 megawatts. Its goal is to begin construction on the reactors in 2023.

The down side is that these are conventional reactors - 60 year old designs with the attendant problems.

The up side is that these are a lot smaller than the 1,200 megawatt units that are being built. If something goes wrong, things move a lot slower so it will be easier to correct. Plus, by using a lot of small cheap identical cores, you have the same redundancy that the US Navy enjoys. They use a lot of identical cores and if there is an issue with a coolant pump bearing or such, they figure out a solution and replace all of them. End of problem. The Navy's safety record is spotless.

My ideal nuke is a LFTR but that is a different story.

And that is it...

Looks like a stretch of some really nice PNW weather and looks like major suckage for the Northeast. From Cliff Mass:

Humidity Storm Hits the Northeast While the Northwest Has the Best Weather in the Nation
For those of you living in the Northwest, this is weather payoff time. Warm, but not too warm. Generally dry, but with a few showers next week to keep things moist enough to keep down the fires.

But the situation back east is different: in several places the humidity will be debilitating, with effective temperatures getting well above 100F.

As I talked about this week, the dew point temperature is a good measure of moisture in the atmosphere, and when summer dew points get into the mid-60s, it starts feeling "sticky" and unpleasant. Dew points in the 70s start getting really irritating and upper 70s, really bad. The National Weather Service dew point analysis at 8 AM EDT today show the national moisture divide. The eastern half of the nation is steamy, with dew points approaching 80F that extends into the New York area. In contrast, low dew points over the West.

More at the site. Yikes - not only high temps but high humidity as well. This is not unusual - used to live in Boston and we would get heat like this every 3-5 years. Glad I live here.

From Powerline Blog:

DAVID STEINBERG: TYING UP LOOSE THREADS IN THE CURIOUS CASE
In four intensely reported investigative columns — here (August 13, 2018), here (October 23, 2018), here (October 30, 2018), and here (November 5, 2018), — David Steinberg has explored the evidence suggesting that Ilhan Omar entered into a sham marriage with her brother in 2009. This is his fifth. He titles it “Meet Leila Elmi: The Missing Link Showing Ilhan Omar Married Her Brother.” Drawing on his research, interviews, and social media evidence he makes the case that Omar has engaged in a variety of fraudulent activities and willful misrepresentations related to her marital arrangements. He writes:

On October 22, 2008, the U.S. State Department stopped accepting applications for the Priority 3/Refugee Family Reunification program — the process by which refugees can apply for asylum if one family member is already a legal U.S. resident. State halted the program because DNA testing — primarily of Somalis — had concluded that perhaps 87 percent of applicants were fraudulently claiming family relationships.

David sets the stage and then begins:

Please read the verified evidence below — and read it alongside the three years of verified evidence published by Scott Johnson, Preya Samsundar, and myself (our work is linked here). The answers to those questions about 2009 appear to give probable cause to investigate Omar for eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy.

This is an incredibly well-researched post complete with links to coroborating data, screen caps of their social media and the documents in question. Omar is not who she says she is. Time to clean house

Great article from Reason:

The New York Times Says Heat Waves Are Getting Worse. The National Climate Assessment Disagrees.
Americans east of the Rockies are sweltering as daytime temperatures soar toward 100 degrees or more. It is now customary for journalists covering big weather events to speculate on how man-made climate change may be affecting them, and the current heat wave is no exception. Take this headline in The New York Times: "Heat Waves in the Age of Climate Change: Longer, More Frequent and More Dangerous."

As evidence, the Times cites the U.S. Global Change Research Program, reporting that "since the 1960s the average number of heat waves—defined as two or more consecutive days where daily lows exceeded historical July and August temperatures—in 50 major American cities has tripled." That is indeed what the numbers show. But it seems odd to highlight the trend in daily low temperatures rather than daily high temperatures.

As it happens, chapter six of 2017's Fourth National Climate Assessment reports that heat waves measured as high daily temperatures are becoming less common in the contiguous U.S., not more frequent.

Again, pushing the narrative and not the facts.

Fusion power in the news

From technology website The Drive:

Skunk Works' Exotic Fusion Reactor Program Moves Forward With Larger, More Powerful Design
Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works is building a new, more capable test reactor as it continues to move ahead with its ambitious Compact Fusion Reactor program, or CFR. Despite slower than expected progress, the company remains confident the project can produce practical results, which would completely transform how power gets generated for both military and civilian purposes.

Aviation Week was first to report the updates on the CFR program, including that Lockheed Martin is in the process of constructing its newest experimental reactor, known as the T5, on July 19, 2019. The company's legendary California-based Skunk Works advanced projects office is in charge of the effort and had already built four different test reactor designs, as well as a number of subvariants, since the program first became public knowledge in 2014. The War Zone has been following news of this potentially revolutionary program very closely in recent years.

A lot more at the site - I love that this research is being privatly funded and that this fifth unit is large enough to be self-sustaining. Nuclear is the way to go for energy generation. All of the alt.energy sources (wind / solar) are just pissing taxpayer money away and are worse for the environment than coal.

This will not end well for Iran - what were they thinking? From FOX News:

Iran's Revolutionary Guard seizes two UK-operated tankers in Strait of Hormuz
Iran seized two British-operated oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz Friday, marking a fresh escalation of tensions between Tehran and the West.

The U.K.-flagged Stena Impero, which has a crew of 23 aboard, “was approached by unidentified small crafts and a helicopter during transit of the Strait of Hormuz while the vessel was in international waters,” Stena Bulk, the shipping company that owns the vessel, said in a statement. "We are presently unable to contact the vessel which is now heading north towards Iran."

Iran's Revolutionary Guard forces, in a statement on their website, say the ship was seized for "non-compliance with international maritime laws and regulations" and is being brought to an unnamed Iranian port, according to the Associated Press. Websites tracking the ship's path showed it turning sharply in the direction of Iran's Qeshm Island, instead of its intended destination of Saudi Arabia.

The Strait of Hormuz is 33 miles wide at its narrowest point. (54 km or 29 Nautical Miles) (one nautical mile = one minute (1/60th) of a degree of latitude)

It will be interesting to see the response. President Trump has forged very good relationships with England, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Israel and all of these nations are getting very tired of Iran's advancement of terrorism.

Actually, yes, shit. From Pampers:

Introducing the world's first all-in-one Connected Care System
Beyond keeping them dry through the night, we wondered: how can we do more to support babies’ daily development?

So we partnered with Verily and Logitech to create Lumi by Pampers - the world’s first all-in-one connected care system that’s revolutionizing baby monitoring by helping parents monitor and track their baby 24/7. By combining a video monitor with an activity sensor, Lumi helps parents blend real-time data with their intuition seamlessly and offers insights tailored to their unique baby using the Lumi by Pampers app.

60 years ago, we reimagined baby care with the first disposable diaper. Lumi by Pampers is the next step in our mission to continue re-inventing baby care.

It does a lot more than just sent a text when the nappies are full. Clever idea actually.

Yikes - huge arson attack in Kyoto

| No Comments

30+ people dead. From NHK:

Fire dept.: 33 dead in suspected arson in Kyoto
Fire department officials in Kyoto said they have confirmed 33 people died in a suspected arson attack in Kyoto. They say 36 others were injured.

The fire broke out around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday at the studio of Kyoto Animation. It took firefighters nearly five hours to extinguish the blaze. Officials say about 70 people were in the building at the time of the fire.

Police say one suspect, believed to be in his 40s, has been taken into custody.

The man was reportedly seen pouring a flammable liquid inside the building before it went up in flames. Witnesses also say he was heard yelling "die" in Japanese.

The studio was very well regarded:

Visiting Professor of Meiji University, Ryusuke Hikawa said, "The name of Kyoto Animation is a strong brand with its sophisticated directorial and production techniques."

He added that Kyoto Animation is known as the first successful studio outside Tokyo.

Tragic.

This is so true - President Trump

From Grabien News:

TRUMP: ‘IF WE DIDN’T HAVE ALL OF THE BULLSH*T,’ WE’D BE MUCH FURTHER ALONG
TRUMP: "And the reason we have to, not only to do new things, which we will, and you know statutorily, and we had all sorts of artificial witch hunts over our head. Can you imagine if we didn’t have to go through that hoax, I don’t know that we would’ve done any better. To be honest with you, I think we’ve done more in two and a half years than any president ever. First two and a half years.

[Applause]

TRUMP: “But could you imagine what it could have been if we didn’t have the witch hunt — you said it. I won’t say it, because it’s a terrible word. So I will not say that this guy said if we didn’t have the bullh*it —”

[Applause]

TRUMP: “No, no, could you imagine if we didn’t have the time wasted, the time and everything. Can you imagine — and you know, a friend of mine said maybe you wouldn’t have done as well. Is that possible? That can happen. Maybe we would have had too much time on our hands. Who knows. But I can say, nobody in their first two and half years has done anywhere close to what we — not me — what we’ve all done."

So true - all of these baseless accusations are slowing down the government.

The Democrats are trying anything to ding the Orange Man - from liberal site Daily Caller:

NBC Fails To Mention The Democrat Who Entered Mar-A-Lago Alongside Epstein In 1992
NBC pulled a video from its archives and noted that President Donald Trump was partying with alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein in 1992, but failed to mention that the man seen entering the estate with Epstein is Democrat Tom McMillen.

Atomic Fungus offers this timeline of the events:

    • 1992: Trump seen "partying with" Epstein at Mar-a-Lago.
    • Somewhere between 1992 and 2008: Trump says he's a "great guy" and has known him 15 years.
    • Also somewhere between 1992 and 2008: Trump has Epstein tossed out of Mar-a-Lago for perving on an underage girl
    • 2008: Epstein arrested and given a gentle pat on the wrist. Trump ceases all association with him.
    • 2016: Trump wins election to Presidency
    • 2019: "Muh Russia!" fails and Democrats need something else, dredge up this.

Nothing there.

Quite the discovery - this is huge

From The Times of Israel:

A ‘game changer’: Vast, developed 9,000-year-old settlement found near Jerusalem
An unprecedentedly vast Neolithic settlement — the largest ever discovered in Israel and the Levant, say archaeologists — is currently being excavated ahead of highway construction five kilometers from Jerusalem, it was announced on Tuesday.

The 9,000-year-old site, located near the town of Motza, is the “Big Bang” for prehistory settlement research due to its size and the preservation of its material culture, said Jacob Vardi, co-director of the excavations at Motza on behalf of the Antiquities Authority, “It’s a game changer, a site that will drastically shift what we know about the Neolithic era,” said Vardi. Already some international scholars are beginning to realize the existence of the site may necessitate revisions to their work, he said.

And the scale of the site:

Roughly half a kilometer from point to point, the site would have housed an expected population of some 3,000 residents. In today’s terms, said Vardi, prehistoric Motza would be comparable to the stature of Jerusalem or Tel Aviv — “a real metropolis.”

More at the site including some photographs. This is similar to the discoveries of Machu Picchu or Chichen Itza

Big wildfire on Maui

| No Comments

Heard about it today - 9,000 acres burned. Arson and they got the moke that did it - from Hawaii News Now:

Suspect arrested in Maui arson incident that triggered massive wildfire
Police officials on Maui have arrested a man suspected of starting a wildfire that burned more than 9,000 acres of land and forced temporary evacuations for some Kihei and Maalaea residents.

County officials say Holden Bingham was arrested just before 7:30 p.m. Monday evening on suspicion of first-degree arson.

The 28-year-old man, who has no local address, was released pending further investigation, but is still being held on unrelated arrest warrants, according to Maui County.

Bingham is a convicted felon who has previously been incarcerated at the Maui Community Correctional Center. He recently agreed to be interviewed by Hawaii News Now for a story on the conditions at the overcrowded facility.

Gotta love that last line: for a story on the conditions at the overcrowded facility

Hey, if you are in jail, you did something against society or one of its citizens. Jail time is supposed to be punishment and not three hots and a cot. They need to bring back hard labor - not chain gangs but I bet that if Mr. Bingham were made to clean up some of his mess, he might not be so cavalier in the future. Pay something back to society.

A stroke of genius - I bet the person who came up with this idea woke up at 3:00AM scrambling for a pencil and paper. One of those kinds of ideas:
