I found something very strange in google today. I have often in the past googled terms from postings in the Althouse forum to look for things either I or others have posted. I've generally had no problem with anything that wasn't in the "deep archive".

I was discussing the "Black Panther" with my brother & I tried to find my posting on Wakanda as an allegory of Zionism. I googled "althouse younghegelian kirby wakanda" & got no hits.

Here's the link. I'm the fifth comment down. All those terms should produce a unique hit, but they don't.

So, what's up with Google? Has someone at MeadeHouse or at Blogger changed the HTML code to block search bots? Has Google decided that Althouse is a alt-right den of iniquity & is refusing to help her (& us) spread our venom?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Deficit spending sucks. Dismaying that voters have so little self respect - electing pandering Congresscritters to steal the fruits of their own offspring's labor.

Looks like insane borrowing from the future, same as usual - unless Trump grows a pair and shuts it down.

What the heck - likely I'll be outa here in 20 years tops, and at least Hillary! still not President.

@Ignorance,

That format produces a more "site specific" search, & I'm glad to see it, at least, still works. But, what I'm pointing out is that the more generic format I used has worked for years, & now, seemingly, doesn't. Why?

What kind of data, exactly, does Facebook collect on us? (And Amazon?) Can they collect data on what blogs I read, what kind of things I search for on the internets, etc, through cookies? Or is it just what I say and do on Facebook and what I buy on Amazon?

@Sydney,

Oh, yes, they definitely mine your cookies & probably your history, too. Haven't you noticed how when you search for something in a search engine, you'll see an ad for it in FB? Cookies.

Every site that wants it has access to your cookie cache. That cache is within the "sandbox" that even well-behaved web sites are supposed to have access to. Stepping outside that "sandbox" into your general file system is considered "malware" type behavior.

Simple solution. Take your 401k money out of stocks. Problem solved.

"I used to reassure myself by thinking, at least my 401k is doing well. For how much longer?"

Relax. Everyone knew a correction was coming. Stocks were super hot in 2017 and are still well above where they were when Trump took office. Fact is, part of the Democrat/Leftist game is to keep markets jittery with bad news after bad news about Trump - ignoring successes, amplifying failures, and creating scandal where none exists.

The question you should be asking yourself is, if Mueller had ended his investigation once he realized there was no evidence of any collusion, legal or illegal, between Trump and Russia, how HIGH would stocks be today? Instead, the Deep State and the liberal elites are trying to slow-walk a coup of a duly elected president. I'm surprised the markets have done as well as they have over the past 14 months, given that fact hanging in the background.

Here's what Geno Auriemma UCONN head coach tweeted about the firing of Jamelle Elliott at Cincinnati WBB

"Positively disgraceful that Jamelle Elliott was let go at Cincinnati. Anyone interested in that job would be well advised to do their homework."

Sounds just like a Donald Trump Tweet, doesn't it? If I didn't know Geno doesn't like Donald I would think he had Donald ghost write it. If UCONN wins the NCAA this year we should assume that a Russian Collusion investigation will be launched against Geno and his family.

Gee, Inga's right. With Bolton in we might make mistakes like handing over 20% of our uranium to Vlad and gang as well as sending billions of dollars to the biggest global sponsor of terrorism that is pledged to our destruction.

LOL

Inga weeps for the Iran deal. We wouldn't want to do anything to hurt those guys as they do so much "good" in helping to create terrorists that can be unvetted and imported as future democrat voters.

Yeah, Andrew McCabe launching a super-secret criminal investigation of Jeff Sessions, based solely on the "request" from 2 democrat senators, could never be described as anything other than "by the book" (wink wink)

By the way, according to career prosecutors, what McCabe did to Sessions is NEVER done. Ever.

Brennan flat out lied to Congress and admitted it. Holder was held in contempt of congress. Clapper lied to congress.

So here are your choices: leadership elements at the FBI were conducting an "Insurance Policy" against the incoming Trump administration.....

...OR....

....Jeff Sessions is a Russian Agent.

LOL

Hillary and obama were warmongers.

Bolton will influence Trump. Trump is famous for taking on the opinion of the last person who he spoke with. Don’t be a simpleton Drago.

Howard said...

Blogger Inga said... McMaster is out. Bolton is in. Lord help us.

This means the deal has been inked, Mueller investigation won't touch Trump & Family. Trump is now officially the titular head of the deep state. Firing the adults and replacing them with nut-bars are a play to maintain base so he will sign the Dem spending bill.

The Dow closed at 18,332.74 on Nov. 8, 2016, Election Day.

Drago said...

Howard: " Firing the adults and replacing them with nut-bars are a play to maintain base so he will sign the Dem spending bill."

"nutbars" now defined as opposing removal of Ghadaffi and opposing sending billions to Iran and uranium to Russia.

Yeah, those adults have been great.

How's the Norks nuke program coming along?....very well after several decades of the "adults" running things.

Wow. What an unexpected honor. Particularly since I was unaware of this awards existence 10 minutes ago.

First of all, I'd like to thank the Academy, my parents who always sacrificed to support my dreams, my children who have inspired me more than I can express.

To my wife, my partner, my best friend. Without you none of this would have been possible.

And, of course, many thanks to all of my Althouse...(chokes up...)...fans....(tears flowing)....who have always supported me. I feel the love and I want to return the love.

God bless you all.

Inga, I love you but get real. Obama's NSA was the worst in history.

YoungHegelian said...

@Sydney,

Is all the controversy about malware type behavior on Facebook's part, or is it all "in the sandbox."

Neither. The data that caused all the hullabaloo had to come directly from FB's tech guys doing a partial database "dump" of the requested user records from FB's ginormous database of users. In other words, Obama or Trump's tech guys (i.e. Cambridge Analytica) requested a subset of clients who met certain criteria, & FB's tech team provided it.

As far as I know, FB has not yet been hacked & its entire user database compromised.

Drago said...

Inga: "So when were either man in the Obama Administration, much less head of the NSA?"

They and their philosophy were well represented with Li'l baracky.

And really, any supporter of the obambi crew which put Fine Arts BA, failed screenwriter and lunatic Ben Rhodes in a Deputy National Security Advisor role, has no room to say anything.

Oh, by the way: did you know that this key Deputy National Security Advisor, whose only real claim to fame and competence was his brother, David Rhodes, who is President of CBS news, was a key architect of the Iran Deal giveaway.

Did you know that Inga?

Did you also know that Ben Rhodes spent 8 years in this critical role and....(wait for it)....NEVER received a security clearance.

Evah!

In fact, the FBI went so far as to deny him a clearance.

Gee, whaddya think of that?

Drago said...

Inga: "There will come a time Drago, that you’ll have to drop the rank partisanship and put your country first."

As long as idiots like you continue to support a party that colludes with Putin to create fake dossiers and have that disinformation weaponized to violate American citizens rights, I will always be there to call you out.

Drago said...

Howard: "Can't wait to see how hysterical MSM will react."

HR McMaster will be "demoted" from Russian Colluder and Lackey to merely tainted by association with Trump.

Bolton will be "promoted" suddenly to Chief of Putin's White House Based Comintern Cell.

I have led teams and been member of teams. Motivation through positive feedback is extremely common practice. To ignore that simple fact, proves people are very busy finding fault in the most basic practices, in faltering attempt to "other" President Trump.

The left is still using the same play book, soon approaching 3 years, hoping against hope that to keep doing the same thing will finally bring the result they seek. That tactic is taking President Trump literally, not seriously. Something they wouldn't think of doing to other persons.

I am starting to use "Alt-Liberal". I propose it as an excellent, useful distinguisher. It signals a deviance and carries the appropriate ominous edge of our moment, no? Besides, "progressives" and "lefties" is so last-century.

Mike Sylwester said...

Today the Liberty Unyielding website published an article titled "Curious things still unresolved as leaks about presidential comms inside White House continue", written by J. E. Dyer, a retired Naval Intelligence officer. The article includes the following passages.

[quote]

... On 2 February 2017, an Obama appointee was escorted from the White House after being summarily relieved of his position. The appointee was White House Chief Information Security Officer – CISO – Cory Louie. ....

That date fell a few days after the first media leaks on Trump’s phone calls with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, and Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the end of January: startling leaks, apparently, about the contents of the president’s phone communications. ...

A week after Louie was fired, another leak purported to reveal the contents of Trump’s first presidential phone call with Vladimir Putin, which took place on 28 January 2017. ...

There’s something else that happened on 2 February 2017. That was the day the Capitol Police kicked the Awans out of the U.S. Capitol complex due to the family’s various criminal investigations and indictments. As of that date, the dozens of House Democrats who at various times had employed the Awans were on notice that members of the family were involved in highly questionable activity.

In an absolutely inexplicable series of follow-on developments, it took some key Democrats, like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, weeks or even months to cut ties with the Awans. ....

My wife got into watching Anderson Cooper's interview of Karen McDougal and we were trapped.

But it was interesting in that she said 10 good things about Trump for every 1/2 bad thing and she blamed that on her lawyer.

Get this: She was ashamed of a 10 month , 5 times a month sexual affair with a good and loving, intelligent man only because he was married. So she never wanted "her story"told, which was why she negotiated selling it into silence with $150,000 and promises of publishing her articles on fitness...a win, win deal.

Now that he is President, Hillary's lawyer has convinced her that her own lawyer sold her out cheap. She wants to publish all the sordid details now and discovers she sold "her story' so if she tells it again, which she is free to do, she will have to pay damages.Drat...foiled again.

But she supports Trump and voted for him and would never hurt him...sincerely.

It’s not Trump’s fault that he is so full of love that one woman wouldn’t be able to handle all that love,💕 so he has pity for his wife and takes a mistress, or two or three. In the words of the Pointer Sisters, what a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man!

Intelligent Inga picked up on my comment. McDougal was praising Trump and showing how gentle, nice and respectful he was to her. And then after she left, without rest after 3 days with her, he seduced Stormy the next night at his Tahoe Tournament.

Trump must be descended from Charles II, another Scottish Stuart. He too had to bed a Catholic whore and a Protestan Whore to keep his Kingdom happy, and he stepped up and did it plus several more. What a man.

The rest of the world admires Trump more for this. And the Evangelicals are stuck in their once loyal, always loyal commitment to him.

I saw the movie "Professor Marston and the Wonder Women". It seems that the various porno versions of Wonder Woman are in some ways more faithful to the origin story than the big budget Hollywood movie. Nonetheless, the Hollywood movie transcends its kinky roots and succeeds on its own terms as a straightforward superhero movie. I'm trying to fashion this into some kind of metaphor for the Trump presidency, but further work needs to be done on the metaphor,

Maybe his hubby was only into the "rare" ones. I'm not sure if the ones in my hood are "rare" or not.

Anywho, I have a friend who just spent four grand on a French Bulldog. That may or may not be rare, but it beats us be a grand (plus we only gots a so-called designer mutt).

Sometimes when I read the comments here I get the impression that liberals think that it is legal for the Feds to spy on Americans if they suspect them of wrong doing.
They aren't.
The feds are allowed to investigate actual crimes, but they aren't allowed to say "Gosh, that Wayne LaPierre opposes the public policy that the duly constituted government of the People of the United States would like to enact, so let's take a really close at his communications & see what we can charge him with."
You need to have a crime first. I know, it sucks to be liberal, they really believe that they want the best for everybody & these stupid laws & constitutional rights keep standing in their way . . .

Mark Penn served as a pollster for Bill Clinton in the 1990s and chief strategist for Hillary's 2008 presidential campaign. He claims that the former First Couple have 'at least a one-way open marriage.' Penn opens up about the Clintons in his upcoming book, Microtrends Squared: The New Small Forces Driving Today's Big Disruptions.

He writes: ''Today you can sit down with an impressionable elite - a Harvard-educated lawyer, for example - and they know with absolute certainty that somehow Trump was laundering money with the Russians in exchange for help in the election.

'They have no evidence for these claims and yet they 'know' it just as strongly as elites once believed the earth was flat.

'So did the Russians need money? How, when $2.4billion was spent on the election campaign, would $100,000 worth of Facebook ads make a difference?

'It's illogical, and yet perhaps 40 per cent of those reading this paragraph have come to believe it, based on reports of completely classified un-knowable information. They just know it.'

Penn claims that while two-thirds of the country did not like either presidential candidate, it was the 'elite' liberals who led Trump into office because they thought Clinton's win was inevitable.

He writes: 'And even in the aftermath, impressionable elites remain on the edge of their seats, in a world of Russian conspiracies and James Comey missteps, still waiting for the deus ex machina to bring the tragedy of 2016 to a close.

'But these, as well as other blinders, are just ways of denying the sea change of the rebellion of 2016.'

Jesus didn't travel more than fifty miles from home

What? Certainly he did. As a baby Jesus traveled with Joseph and Mary from the vicinity of Jerusalem to Egypt, perhaps Alexandria where there was a community of Jews. That’s just about 1000 km (620 miles) by road right there. From Alexandra to Nazareth is another more than 1,000 km.

Then, as an adult, within a few years Jesus traveled several times between the vicinity of (e.g., Tiberias on) the Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem and back — that’s 180 km (110 miles) each way — plus trips elsewhere in the general area of Judea, Samaria, and Galilee — such as a visit to the Decapolis (the Ten Cities) in what’s now northwestern Jordan.

Lewis Wetzel said...

"Excelsior" is pretty bad. But "The Tay Bridge Disaster" is supposed to be even more worserer, though the poet, some artless chap named McGonagall, is not as well known as Longfellow.

"Twas about seven o’clock at night,
And the wind it blew with all its might,
And the rain came pouring down,
And the dark clouds seem’d to frown,
And the Demon of the air seem’d to say-
'I’ll blow down the Bridge of Tay.'"

So, just in case you were thinking that the 4chan guys are some group of super-secret geniuses, here is a representative post from some fellow who calls himself "MFW":
Why can't the FAA fuck off? It's all just a fucking pyrimd scam anyway. The idiots at the bottom want to be a cool airline pilot so they give money to CFIs. The CFIs work their asses off and accept shit pay to get to the regionals. Pilots at regionals get paid shit and work their ass off to get to the majors. At the majors They finnaly start getting paid a living wage and by then they hate their job

Why didn't someone tell me this industry is so fucking toxic BEFORE I wasted $40k??

My wife has shown me the pearl necklace she wants for our 30th anniversary.

I told her she is too young to wear pearls like that. Then she showed me the suit she made for wearing them. Which is very nice. Plus, she said, they will be handed down to our daughter when we croak.

She's so romantic. Now all I have to do is sell my brush hog and box blade.

Why can't the FAA fuck off?

I started learning how to fly under the GI Bill while I was enlisted. Then I did two years of college ROTC, and was commissioned. After 20 years service, I retired.

Most of my flying was in jets, so I was a shoe-in for the airlines. But the thing is, the cockpit today is people managing computers. It's not really flying. So I was not interested in that. My last plane (707) was controlled by cables, and levers. Even the seat had to be adjusted manually. The cabin door was a curtain. We had an enlisted man to adjust our throttles for us, and a 90 day wonder to tell us where the sun and moon were.

So when I retired I flew an ultralight for a year, then partnered in a sailplane. After a couple years I was bored, and bought a farm.

Flying is a lot of fun, as long as you stay below 40 HP. After that it is expensive and boring. It's a good career for a high school graduate if you have a good method to de-stress healthfully.

I tell everyone to fly into Dallas during rush hour, and then tell me they want to be an airline pilot.

Here's a video

Lewis Wetzel said...

The only airline pilot I knew flew for NW (this was in the 80s). He wanted to buy a lake cabin in the Detroit Lakes region of MN. He paid his own way through civilian flight school, sacrificed his marriage, and lived a very restricted lifestyle, all for that dream of a cabin on Pelican Lake. Hope he made it.

These are important details which Cooper can at least bring back to P-Town social circles, even if they are edited out of the 60 Minutes interview.

Stormy: Yes I can, Anderson. I am free to do so.

I think that my pilot friend made about $80k/year in the late 1980s, flying as second officer on mid-size airliners. If he was on-call (he called it the "hot seat"), when we went out for a beer, he would drive his own car & keep his uniform in the back seat with a towel over it so no one would see it. He limited himself to one drink. When his wife divorced him, she made it very clear that his obsession with his job was the cause. I've looked for him on google (he has an unusual last name), and it comes up blank. That makes me think he has died. Oh well.

Etienne said...

That would be good money back then. Especially in the great white north, eh :-)

Lewis Wetzel said...

Memories are coming back. That pilot guy -- his first name was "Mark" -- really loved to fly. He talked me into renting a plane for a flying lesson, $40/hr IIRC. We flew out of an airport in Saint Paul, some tiny little plane that barely held two people. I was terrified, it seemed so flimsy. He had me sit in the pilot's seat, on the left, and told me when to hit the throttle & pull up and push down on the stick. I was terrified, and at that time I rode an old Harley for transport eight months out of the year. We zipped around the old, giant smokestacks at Bayport. The flight was uneventful, but I wanted to kiss the ground when we landed. I hate flying, it ain't natural.

@Lewis, google his name and “obituary.” If it comes up blank he isn’t dead. Whitepages should then have him.

Just as Democratic donors thought they’d finally put away wallets for Hillary Clinton, she’s coming back to NYC for a fund-raiser for her nonprofit — while also creating a party stink by throwing the bash at the exact same time as an event for DNC chairman Tom Perez. Clinton will be in town on April 30 for her “Onward Together” organization, to support young political leaders. With great fanfare, Clinton announced in an email to her 2016 supporters that she is launching the Onward Together Leadership Council and that they could become charter members — in return for coughing up at least... . - New York Post

Liberals are burning their bridges with the rest of America with this extended tantrum about Trump.
