Got an early morning tomorrow and a full day of work. Minimal posting.

Nothing happening online.

Video or two and it's lights out for this kid.

A wonderful repast

| No Comments

First farm dinner of the season tonight.

Bruchetta
Green salad with herbs, cherries and oven-roasted pepitas
Pickled radishes
Oven-roasted carrots, beets, daikon radish with rosemary
Cilantro Quinoa
Choice of several fritatta's (fritattae?)
Focaccia Bread
Desert was a strawberry rhubarb cobbler with fresh whipped goat cream.

Live music throughout and a nice 20 minute farm walk before desert. Pleasently stuffed.

Ran into some new people, some old friends, two island artists... About 50 people in attendence.

Busy day today

Running a few errands and then a farm dinner tonight - first of the season.

Really good food and wonderful people. Home away from home.

California of course - from Yahoo News/Los Angeles Times:

California offers $100 million to rescue its struggling legal marijuana industry
The California Legislature on Monday approved a $100-million plan to bolster California’s legal marijuana industry, which continues to struggle to compete with the large illicit pot market nearly five years after voters approved sales for recreational use.

Los Angeles will be the biggest beneficiary of the money, which was proposed by Gov. Gavin Newsom to be provided as grants to cities and counties to help cannabis businesses transition from provisional to regular licenses.

The California government can not even manage selling pot for a profit. Talk about clueless.
Just another grift with just another "reason" to justify it.
Distributing tax dollars to your cronies.

The real problem is that there is no accountability in public service - if you screw up, you get moved to another position. Often with an increase in pay "for your troubles". The moke does not get fired. Clueless idiots.

And outta here for the day

A bit of stress-relieving or leading up to something bigger?
Small (2.n Mag) but shallow - 1-3km depth getting deeper as they head South.
The site I get this from is here: USGS Magnitude 2.5+ Earthquakes, Past Day
It dynamically updates so these quakes will fall off the screen tomorrow.  Coincidence or harbinger?

Had to run up North for a few errands and stopped at Costco for gas and a few things.
The Tri Tip is up another dollar.  From $9.99/lb to $12.99/lb in thirty days.
Here are the first three photos documenting this and here is photo number four:

Again, note that it is the same SKU #33708 and the same store number #662
Asked the butchers and they said that they had not been told anything. This is corporate's decision.

Port Hadlock is across the Sound from where I live. Near to Port Townsend which is a gorgeous old Victorian town but a cess-pit of liberalism. From the WA State The Olympian:

2 hurt in bomb explosion at Olympic Peninsula residence
A bomb detonated at a residence on the Olympic Peninsula in Port Hadlock Tuesday night, causing the suspected bomb maker’s arm to be amputated and injuring his 6-year-old granddaughter.

The unidentified 46-year-old Port Hadlock man’s left arm was amputated in the explosion in an outbuilding on the property, the Peninsula Daily News reported.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Brett Anglin said the man also suffered chest injuries, and his granddaughter sustained burns to her face.

Nothing much more - we will see if there is a Manifesto.  Cases like this, there is always a Manifesto.

Wonder if he was affiliated with the Loompanics crowd. The Anarchist's Cookbook had some pretty egregious errors.

Friday morning - usual stuff

Working today so heading out for dog walk and coffee.  It is going to be fairly warm so running back home after coffee and leaving the pups in the garage for the day. The parking lot at the store has no shade anywhere.

Nothing much happening out there - the usual slow Friday news day...

Coca-Cola - the shareholders speak

| No Comments

Coca-Cola is a corporation. They are run by a board of directors and they have a CEO and other officers but at heart, they are owned by their shareholders and it is those shareholders who have a say over the direction of the business. From Paul Mirengoff writing at Powerline:

CONCERNED SHAREHOLDERS TAKE ACTION AGAINST COKE’S RACIST DEMANDS
In January 2021, the general counsel of Coca-Cola sent a letter to the law firms that represent it. The letter demanded, among other things, that these firms “commit that at least 30% of each of billed associate and partner time will be from diverse attorneys, and of such amounts at least half will be from Black attorneys.”

In response to this outrageous policy, the American Civil Rights Project (of which I am a board member) has sent a letter to the company on behalf of concerned Coca-Cola shareholders. The letter demands that the Coke either (1) publicly retract the discriminatory outside-counsel policies it announced in January or (2) provide access to the corporate records related to the decision of Coca-Cola’s officers and directors to adopt and retain those illegal policies.

And the upshot was this missive - the conclusion:

The letter concludes with this demand:

The Stockholders therefore demand that you immediately publicly retract the Policies in their entirety. If we do not receive a response to these demands within 30 business days, we will understand. . .Coke. . .to have refused to address these matters themselves. At that point, the Stockholders will be forced to seek judicial relief to protect Coke and the Stockholders’ interests in the company from your continued breaches of your fiduciary duties.

I hope that after you have reviewed this letter, you will be in touch to inform us of how Coke will comply with these demands.

The letter is dated June 11, 2021. The clock is ticking.

People for generations to come will visit Atlanta to see the smoking crater where the Coca-Cola boardroom used to be. If they do not come to their collective senses that is.

The liberals want to get rid of the Police and install their own brownshirts.  The Police are accountable to the General Public and are charged with upholding the laws on the books. Brownshirts are not. Brownshirts work only for the tyrants.  They are only accountable to the tyrants.

Looks like the People's Republic of Portland is half-way there - from Portland station KXL:

Entire Portland Police Rapid Response Team Resigns
FM News 101 learned late Wednesday night that in response to the criminal indictment of Officer Corey Budworth, the bureaus entire Rapid Response Team resigned. Sources with the Police Bureau say the team voted unanimously to disband.

The Rapid Response Team is a group of volunteer officers who respond to civil disobedience, demonstrations, and riots.

Used to be a wonderful city.  Home to a lot of fun places - Powell's Books. Now? I would not get off I-5 if I had to. Check the gas before entering Oregon. It is going to get a lot worse before it starts to get better.  If it starts to get better.

Schadenfreude - from FOX News:

CNN’s Brian Stelter draws smallest audience of 2021 as ‘Reliable Sources’ gets crushed by ‘MediaBuzz’
CNN’s "Reliable Sources" with Brian Stelter has failed to attract one million viewers for 11-straight weeks and averaged only 752,000 on Sunday for its smallest audience of 2021. 

And this:

Fox News’ "MediaBuzz," which is Stelter’s direct timeslot competition, averaged 1.1 million viewers to beat the struggling CNN show by a whopping 41 percent. Fox News aired 12 different programs on Sunday alone that attracted a larger audience than "Reliable Sources." 

And from The Daily Wire:

Ratings Free Fall: CNN’s Brian Stelter Loses 72% Of Viewers In 2021
The ratings of CNN’s “Reliable Sources” plunged to their lowest level of the year this weekend, even as host Brian Stelter continues to dedicate every episode to criticizing the credibility of Fox News.

In all, his show has lost 72% of its viewers since its high point on January 10.

Looks like We The People are wising up to reality.

The peaceful protest at the Capitol Building? The Democrats are trying to use this as a latter-day Reichstag Fire and clamp down on those pesky freedom-loving Citizens. Unfortunatly for their narrative, it looks like it was pre-planned and that the FBI had a big hand in setting it up.  From Russia Today:

Media hushes up report suggesting FBI involvement in Capitol riot, as White House turns anti-terrorism efforts on American people
Court filings suggest that FBI operatives were among the mob who stormed the US Capitol in January, and may have set up the riot. With the riot used as justification for new terrorism policy, the media is downplaying the story.

Fox News broadcast possibly the most consequential report in recent cable news history on Tuesday night. Fox host Tucker Carlson alleged that the Capitol Hill riot on January 6 – dubbed an “insurrection,” an “assault on our democracy,” and “domestic terrorism” – may have been, at least partly, an inside job.

Carlson’s claims were first made a day earlier by Revolver News, an upstart right-wing news site. Revolver pored over charging documents against members of the ‘Oath Keepers’ and ‘Proud Boys’ militias who took part in the riots, and discovered that alongside the rioters were dozens of “unindicted co-conspirators.” These co-conspirators (UCCs for short) allegedly committed crimes equal to or greater than those of the militia members, but were kept anonymous in the court documents and not charged.

Interesting - according to the testimony, there were numerous attempts to goad people into acts of violence.  All indicators point to these being instigated by outside agitators seeking to incite a riot.  This looks more and more like a false flag operation than anything any Trump supporters did.  After all, we have video of the Capitol Police opening the doors and waving people inside.

The FBI has a long history of infiltrating various groups and inciting hostile activities.  This is something the article spends some time on citing chapter and verse. Time to fire the top 30% of their bureaucracy and seriously audit the doings of the other 70% - rotten to the core.

But this one is pure gold:

CNN Heralds Biden Foreign Trip Victory to Americans, But CNN’s European Readers See: ‘Putin Got Exactly What He Wanted’
CNN’s duplicity doesn’t even stop when it comes to unfair treatment of Republicans and softball treatment of Democrats. It even treats Americans differently by playing it more straight and objective with U.S. news coverage with the rest of the world.

Much more at the site besides these two screen-caps.  Links and story. Not unexpected given the morality and ethics of the people involved. Got to push that narrative.

Very interesting - N-acetylcysteine

| No Comments

From NOQ Report:

NAC Being Studied for Use Against Covid-19, So Of Course Amazon Just Banned It

    • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is suddenly cracking down on N-acetylcysteine (NAC), claiming it is excluded from the definition of a dietary supplement. As a result, Amazon has removed all listings featuring NAC-containing supplements
    • The trade group for the supplement industry, the Council for Responsible Nutrition, is challenging the FDA’s position, calling it “legally invalid,” and is urging its members to continue selling NAC supplements
    • NAC supplements have been sold for 57 years, and the FDA has never taken action against it — until now, when 16 clinical trials are investigating its usefulness against COVID-19
    • NAC is a precursor to reduced glutathione, which appears to play a crucial role in COVID-19. There’s evidence glutathione deficiency may worsen COVID-19 severity
    • NAC inhibits expression of proinflammatory cytokines that can trigger a cytokine storm, improves T cell response, benefits a variety of lung problems, and inhibits the hypercoagulation that can result in stroke and/or blood clots that impair the ability to exchange oxygen in the lungs

N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a precursor to reduced glutathione, appears to play an important role in COVID-19. According to an April 2020 literature analysis, glutathione deficiency may be associated with COVID-19 severity, leading the author to conclude that NAC may be useful both for its prevention and treatment.

NAC has a long history of use as a poison control remedy for acetaminophen poisoning in the emergency room. It neutralizes the toxic effects of the drug by recharging glutathione, thereby preventing liver damage. But the idea that NAC can also be helpful against viral infections is not new. Previous studies, have found it reduces viral replication of certain viruses, including the influenza virus.

In one such study, the number needed to treat (NNT) was 0.5, which means for every two people treated with NAC, one will be protected against symptomatic influenza. That’s significantly better than influenza vaccines, which have an NNV (number needed to vaccinate) of 71, meaning 71 people must be vaccinated to prevent a single case of confirmed influenza. It’s even better than vitamin D, which has an NNT of 33.

Been taking NAC as a part of my semi-daily regimen for the last ten years or so. One of those things that doesn't have absolutely concrete benefits but the anecdotal benefits are persuasive and the stuff is cheap enough that chucking a few pills down the hatch every other day makes sense.

I have a new hobby!!!

From the London Daily Mail:

'No yellow!' Hunter Biden used slur to refer to Asians in 2019 texts with his cousin Caroline who asked if he preferred 'foreign or domestic' women - as he's already been blasted as racist for using the n-word

    • Hunter Biden referred to Asians with the offensive term 'yellow' in a 2019 text conversation with his cousin Caroline Biden
    • In the January 2019 texts, Caroline and Hunter were discussing setting him up with her rich, model friends
    • Caroline asked Hunter: 'Do you want foreign or domestic. I can't give you f***ing Asian sorry. I'm not doing it'
    • Hunter replied: 'Domesticated foreigner is fine. No yellow'
    • His father Joe vowed last month to 'stop the hatred and the bias' against Asians
    • Caroline, daughter of Joe Biden's brother Jim, was trying to help Hunter get over Hallie, brother Beau's widow and his lover
    • This comes after DailyMail.com revealed Hunter used the n-word multiple times in banter with his lawyer

No conflict of interest here - none at all.  From FOX News:

CNN faces conflict of interest concerns after Biden selects exec's spouse for ambassador to Israel
President Biden selected the spouse of a top CNN executive as his nominee for U.S. ambassador to Israel on Tuesday, raising ethical concerns as experts feel the selection poses a "potential conflict of interest" for the liberal network.

Thomas Nides, a Morgan Stanley executive and former senior State Department official, has been nominated for the post. His wife, CNN senior vice president of newsgathering Virginia Moseley, "oversees all of CNN's breaking news coverage and domestic newsgathering," according to CNN’s website. Moseley is also responsible for "all coverage plans for the network's White House, Congressional, Justice Department, Defense, National Security reporting teams and more."

Nothing new here. Saw it with Bill Clinton, saw it with Barky Obama and we are seeing it now. Just one big happy family.

China nuke plant - update #6

| No Comments

Looks like problems with the fuel rods. From the New York Times:

China Denies Radiation Leak at Reactor but Admits Fuel Rod Damage
The Chinese government said on Wednesday that “about five” of the uranium fuel rods inside a nuclear power plant in southeastern China had been damaged, but added that no radiation had leaked out of reactors at the site.

Only "about five" - pants on fire. Who made the fuel rods?  Chinese I bet.
From Chinese news outlet: Xinhua

China says no abnormalities in radiation level around Taishan nuclear plant
No abnormalities or radiation leaks have been detected in the vicinity of the Taishan nuclear power plant in south China's Guangdong Province, the country's environment authorities said Wednesday.

The Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) made the remarks in response to recent CNN reports on the situation concerning the plant, noting that its two French-designed nuclear power units have been operating in a safe and stable manner.

Then why all the fuss and bother? Why is this getting such publicity but so little actual data?

Time will tell.  Holding off on taking the iodine pills but dug them out of my prep stash and have them ready if needed.

Shooting fish in a barrel.  Biden is totally outmatched.
Biden's fallback position was the usual cranky old man. Angry at everything.
From the London Daily Mail:

Biden threatens cyber response against Putin and gives him a 'red-line list' of 16 no-hack infrastructure locations - then snaps at press and says is NOT confident the Russian president will change

    • Joe Biden threatened retaliation against Vladimir Putin for cyber attacks
    • Biden said he had 'told President Putin we need some basic rules of the road that we can all abide by', adding that 'I did what I came to do'
    • Putin described Biden as 'very different' from Donald Trump
    • He held a press conference after his nearly-three hour meeting with Biden; Biden speaks next
    • He started off complimentary of Biden but then grew snipping as he was questioned on Russian activities
    • Putin was critical of gun violence in America and deflected questions on dissident Alexi Navalny
    • 'You don't have time to open your mouth and you're shot dead,' he said
    • Biden went after a CNN reporter who pressed him on why he was confident Putin would change

Much more at the site - it would be delicious schadenfreude if it was not our own Nation. Our own *Resident.

Clouds burning off and sunshine happening for the rest of the day.  5% precip in the forecast.

Nothing much going on in the world.  The Biden/Putin "summit" is happening. See what the fallout is from that.  Both Russia and China are holding huge military drills in the Pacific. Rattling sabers.

More stuff is coming out about the January 6th Reichstag Fire Capitol Riot - looks like some government agencies (lookin' at you FBI) had a hand in promoting it.  A lot of the people arrested that day have been in solitary confinement since then. Can't let people know what really went on.  Have to keep pushing the narrative. Uber alles.

From Project Veritas:

BREAKING: Fox 26 Reporter Releases tape of ‘Corruption,’ ‘Censorship.’ Fox Corp Boss told Hecker “cease & desist” posting on Hydroxychloroquine & ‘Poor African-Americans’ don’t care about Bitcoin. “Viewers being Deceived”

    • Fox 26 reporter Ivory Hecker was suspended today, after announcing live on-air that she had decided to come to Project Veritas for what she described as pure “corruption” at the Houston affiliate – She said the station’s actions are an affront to real journalism and claimed leadership prioritizes corporate interests over the viewer.
    • Hecker obtained recordings of her superiors telling her to prioritize the opinion of the station’s General Manager, and the company’s CEO, above that of the audience.
    • Hecker: “What’s happening within Fox Corp is an operation of prioritizing corporate interests above the viewer's interest and, therefore, operating in a deceptive way.”
    • She also obtained audio of Fox 26’s VP and News Director, Susan Schiller, telling Hecker to “cease and desist” posting about Hydroxychloroquine on social media.
    • Hecker interviewed Dr. Joseph Varon, MD, Chief of Critical Care and COVID-19 Unit at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, who told her of his success using Hydroxychloroquine on certain patients.
    • Hecker: “The viewers are being deceived by a carefully crafted narrative in some stories.”
    • Things turned racial behind the scenes, according to Hecker, who recorded her superior, Lee Meier, as they judged the newsworthiness of a story based on specific demographics -- on one occasion, a Fox 26 executive said that a “poor African-American audience” wouldn’t care about Bitcoin stories.
    • Hecker said the decision to shy away from these topics was not made in the interest of the public good, but rather, in line with the leadership of Fox Corp and Fox’s advertisers -- one of which is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
    • Hecker: "There's a narrative. Yes, it is unspoken. But if you accidentally step outside the narrative, if you don't sense what that narrative is and go with it, there will be grave consequences for you.”
    • Hecker: “Fox came at my throat for standing up against censorship.”
    • Hecker had a call with Fox 26 earlier today in which she was asked to return her reporting equipment to the station.
    • Ivory's mother Renee has set up a crowdfunding support page for her daughter at the Christian website GiveSendGo.com
    • Fox 26 Houston has responded through a company spokesperson: "FOX 26 adheres to the highest editorial standards of accuracy and impartiality. This incident involves nothing more than a disgruntled former employee seeking publicity by promoting a false narrative produced through selective editing and misrepresentation."

Project Veritas released a new video today featuring a sit-down interview with recently-suspended Fox 26 reporter, Ivory Hecker, who blew the whistle on her own network for what she says are acts of deception. She claims the station’s editorial decisions are an affront to honest journalism. 

Hecker, who serves as a dayside reporter primarily for the five and six o’clock news, came forward to Project Veritas with recordings of her colleagues and superiors showing a pattern of “censorship” on COVID-19 and Bitcoin-related stories. She also highlighted a pattern of submission among the local affiliate’s leadership to Fox’s corporate interests, rather than acting in the interest of transparency with its viewers.

“Viewers are being deceived about some of the things that are going on,” Hecker told Veritas.

Much much more at the site - this kinda jumped out at me:

Jennifer Bourgeois, Sales Coordinator for Fox 26, admitted on tape that the CDC is heavily influencing stations such as theirs due to the amount of money they are pouring into ad campaigns – and how that, in turn, affects the network’s coverage of major health issues. 

'Scuse me but isn't the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention supposed to be a non-partisan agency?

And, if we know anything about James O'Keefe, he has several hours more stuff in the vault ready to be released.  Let FOX try to spin this one - they were caught feeding us disinformation.  Not doing their fscking job.

Looks like their mayor is missing some basic leadership skills.  Typical.
From The Liberty Daily:

Leaked Email Shows Lori Lightfoot Channeling ‘The Shining’ In Unhinged Rant About Office Time
No matter how hard I try to stay on top of every bit of news that ever happens in America, occasionally something slips past me. That happened this weekend when Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot demonstrated how unhinged from reality she really is in a leaked email about her precious office time.

First reported by the Chicago Tribune, the Mayor repeated every line of her rant for effect. It was an embarrassing display of childishness that some compared to the theme of Stephen King’s “The Shining” where the main character types repeatedly, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

Copies of the emails at the site for your enjoyment.  This is not how to manage people or lead an organization.

She is not losing it.  She never had it.  She was credentialed.  Black. Lesbian. Paid her dues. It was her "turn".
Ability to manage a city? Never entered the equation. Accountability? Don't make me laugh...

President Putin does remember 2011

| No Comments

And is doing an epic troll of Biden the elder.  From Trending Politics:

Vladimir Putin Trolls Joe Biden For His “Good Memory”
During an NBC interview before the planned meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Joe Biden, Putin appeared to troll Biden for his “good memory” in relation to comments that he allegedly previously made.

“Well, President Biden says — one time when you met, you were inches away from each other, close to each other,” reporter Keir Simmons started. “And he said to you, ‘I’m looking in your eyes, and I can’t see a soul.’ And you said, ‘We understand each other.’ Do you remember that exchange?”

“As far as soul, I’m not sure. One has to think about what soul is. But I do not remember this particular part of our conversations, to be honest with you. I do not remember,” Putin said, adding, “And— as far as soul goes, that’s something for the church.”

Putin added later on in the interview, “I do not remember this, something wrong with my memory.”

“He says it was about it was 10 years ago, 10 years ago when he was vice president, he says,” the reporter persisted.

“Well, he probably has a good memory,” Putin replied, clearly poking fun at Biden’s mental decline.

Video of the full interview and transcript of this segment at the site. Elder abuse. It will be interesting to see if the video of the upcoming meeting is released - Putin is running rings around our Nation and the Democrat Party in particular. I wish we could hire him to clean our Washington D.C. - come over here for a few years, do a grand reset and then go back to running Russia...
