The secret deal the Associated Press made with the Nazis during WWII

U.S. counterintelligence agents unaware of the approval found “definite proof” that the AP was “engaged in operations coming within the purview of the Trading with the Enemy Act,” according to a document referenced in AP’s report.

Here's an idea: Both the MLB and the NFL should divide their leagues into kneeling and non-kneeling. Say, the National League could be kneeling, the American League not. The NFC kneeling, the AFC not. That would make for greater fan interest, don't you think? Or, if that didn't work out, then each division could include an equal number of kneeling and non-kneeling teams, which would generate more excitement in the week-to-week schedules.

There was a thread a while back about "Movies that begin with a person entering a particular place and end with him leaving." One such film is "A Gunfight," a 1971 TV movie with Johnny Cash and Kirk Douglas. Interesting movie, influenced by spaghetti Westerns. It played in a little stretch of time when TV movies were events, before they got pushed aside by miniseries.

Michael Cohen to be freed and given his 1st Amendment rights back. The judge really slammed the Justice department, it was epic. I can’t wait for his book to come out, hopefully it will be out before November.

To Make Orchestras More Diverse, End Blind Auditions
"If ensembles are to reflect the communities they serve, the audition process should take into account race, gender and other factors."

And here's an article which claims that the supposed anti-female sexism, which was the impetus for blind auditions, probably never existed.

And you kept me alive with your sweet flowing love**

"I had nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would
bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows.
They would … actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move,

@Fernandinande:
Of old we depicted Justice wearing a blindfold and holding scales to weigh the merits of the cases before her. The left wants her to take off the blindfold in order to put a thumb on the scale to favor the right color, sex, trans-gender, etc.

That’s the difference between Justice and “Social Justice”.

The uses of adversity: A bad television show, the kind that's not quite bad enough to be summarily dismissed and not quite good enough to be consistently entertaining, inspires me to pick up a book or magazine. The Netflix show "Insatiable" starts strong but relentlessly devolves into weak satire. I'm not sure what it celebrates and what it satirizes. It's either a celebration or put down of gay men. It's hard to make fun of gay people and stay on the right side of the p.c. police. It is consistent, however, in its mockery of beauty pageant contestants and their coaches. You can make fun of beauty pageant contestants all you want and no one will say boo. I myself am sympathetic to beauty pageant contestants and do not think that they should be unfairly stereotyped as airheads.

boatbuilder said...

So back in 2018 there was an instance of Republican "vote harvesting" in North Carolina, which was a huge nationally publicized scandal and resulted in indictments of the "political operatives" involved.

If nothing else, this episode illustrates the potential harm that "ballot harvesting" presents for the integrity of our political system.

And yet, we don't hear anything from anyone to the left of the Powerline guys about any concern that the voting process might be capable of being abused by "ballot harvesting" by political operatives. That it is explicitly sanctioned in CA.

Isn't anyone worried about the implications such conduct might have going forward?

Shouldn't the lefties be worried that all of the odd balloting circumstances justified by the covid-19 "emergency" might possibly enable the (alleged) dictator in power Trump to use the system to solidify his power through election fraud?

The silence is deafening. Apparently vote fraud only exists when it favors the bad guys.

William said...

Anyway, I got fed up with the inanity of the above show and turned to The New Yorker for intellectual sustenance. There was a lengthy profile of Toni Morrison. I've never read any of her books, and the article did not provide much inspiration to make up for this deficit. In the same issue of The New Yorker, there's an article about Margaret Fuller. She was a 19th century American writer who was said to be America's first female public intellectual. I have only a vague idea of what a public intellectual is, but she was the first American woman to become one. I never heard of Margaret Fuller and, again, the profile in The New Yorker is not such as to encourage taking her up, but she was a big deal back in the 19th century. She impressed Edgar Allen Poe and George Eliot, but that was then. Now she's mostly forgotten.....I wonder if Toni Morrison is not destined for the same fate as Margaret Fuller and if the editor of The New Yorker wished to make this sly point.

William said...

I did read the Fairweather biography of Madame De Stael. She also used to be a big deal. Wellington, Czar Alexander, and the King of Sweden befriended her, and they sought and occasionally took her advice. She's pretty much forgotten today. She was a wealthy woman who was more inclined to mistreat rather than be mistreated by her lovers. There's not much in her bio to inspire a feminist or a Marxist....I read one of her books, "Ten Years of Exile". In that book she flees to Russia to escape the oppression of Napoleon.....She writes about "the slaves", her word for the serfs, and their enthusiasm for taking up arms against Napoleon. The slaves were given their freedom if they enlisted in the regular army. If they were in militia units, however, they were not granted emancipation. She thought that that was unfair. She was convinced of Czar Alexander's generous and noble character. She thought that he would be just the person to free the serfs if given enough time and latitude.....Maybe she was the first female public intellectual. As it turned out, she wasn't very prescient about Czar Alexander or a number of other things, but she impressed her contemporaries.

Inga, do you believe that a US citizen can have her first amendment rights taken away and then restored? The first amendment simply prohibits the federal government from doing something.

I was involved with a nurse for a few years. The fucking bitch would sometimes come home, snatch the pillow from under my head, and return to the hospital to make some VIP patient feel more comfortable. Is it any wonder that our relationship foundered?

The Washington Examiner is misreporting again and in the process they have exposed their inability to spell.

Federal police indoors who were trying to peak outside were struck with lasers, preventing them from seeing what was going on outside.

Now if we only knew what the action "to peak outside" entails. I suppose that it all boils down to the fact that their hero Donald cannot spell either. Peekaboo baby!

Nowhere in the article does it say that Federal thugs were hospitalized but Examiner inferences were made that these well-armed "Brown Shirts" were somehow getting beaten badly.

New York Times front page story correction of the correction...

A pregnant mixed race woman was shot in the middle of a riot in Chicago yesterday. Luckily the white police officer was using rubber bullets and no one was hurt. Later that day the pregnant mixed race woman was able to go a health clinic where she received female health care and is no longer pregnant.

The link has Iowa a toss up. Not anywhere close to toss up. The Dem challenger is doing a Biden, and refuses to sit for an interview with any media.

Of course History for the leftist starts anew with awakening. Polls from 2016 are ignored. Like polls showing Trump exactly the same approval as the most popular President since Washington. Saint Obama. Its like the talking point is more important than facts.

Fauci threw out the first pitch at the Nationals game. Rather than throw it to the catcher, as is usually done, he threw it into the dugout (or thereabouts), unintentionally. A metaphor for his professional expertise.

“I'm waiting with anticipation a federal officer confronting the murderous mobs that they will immediately shot if they point lasers at them or the local police.”

I don’t know if anyone yet has figured out that shooting lasers at people, trying to hit their eyes, is sufficient force to justify a lethal response under self defense. That is because it appears to cause blindness, and that should be considered “great bodily injury”. Of course, a lot of stuff that the “mostly peaceful” “protesters” are doing could legally justify a use of deadly force in response. They keep escalating and escalating. It seems a big game for them, how far can they push the cops present, how badly can they threaten them, staying relatively safe through the size of the crowd, without the cops replying with legally justified deadly force as self defense in reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily injury. Except that we know that the generation of Soros financed DAs running the prosecutions in these Deep Blue urban hellholes will just ignore self defense laws, and indict the police (and whomever else is pushing back) for defending themselves - as is going on right now with the McCloskys in St Louis. They are at least defended by Republican AG in MO. What happens if you have Keith Ellison instead?

Much of the country elects their state level office holders every four years, often two years before/after Presidential elections. Soros and his cronies spent large chunks of money in those elections. And a lot of their money went into Secretaries of State and Attorneys General (used to think that the plural was “attorney generals” - but AG Barr pointed out that “general” is an adjective, and not a noun), as well as District Attorneys. Electing Secretaries of State is obvious - they expect to engage in massive election fraud this year. But why attorneys general and district attorneys? What we weren’t seeing back then was the level of violent rioting and arson that they had planned for this year. That is the scary thing to me - that electing hard left AGs and DAs, like Ellison, was in preparation for the rioting - which implies that it too was planned, and is anything but organic. Worse, we saw indications late last summer and into the fall that AntiFA was getting ready to riot this year, but this suggests that the groundwork had been put in place at least a year before that.

This should scare everyone here (of course, many of the leftists here mistakenly believe that they will be left alone, due to their virtue signaling). We have significant evidence of foreign and domestic billionaires planning, coordinating, organizing, and facilitating a violent overthrow of our government. Is there some Chinese or Russian money in there too? Wouldn’t surprise me the least.

FIFY Ken B.

This has been explained numerous times: the deaths reported yesterday took place sometime over the last 2-6 weeks. To see the actual trends in death rates you have to go to the CDC page.
Note these are WEEKLY not daily totals for the US. deaths by date of death

For a more accurate read on how things are going, look at hospitalizations, which are dropping in AZ. Huzzah!

Here's a precis of what Jacques Barzun had to say about Mme. de Stael--

the novels Delphine and Corinne introduce the prototype of "the New Woman, superior in mind and willpower and thereby feeling isolated."

She saw that the 18th C life of reason lacked "the sensuous and aesthetic" . . . . art and the quality of art matter in a new way: they modify the inner being and therefore society . . . . The 19th and 20th C religion of art originates in this period and MdS is, with her contemporary Chateaubriand, one of its prime apostles."

Her widespread travel and access to German intellectuals led to her book "On Germany," which explained--if not always convincingly--German culture to the French: the big idea was the distinction between the 'classical' Roman/pagan culture of Southern Europe and the 'romantic' Nordic/Christian culture of the North. (Hey, I'm just paraphrasing, and Napoleon tried to have it suppressed, so there is that.)

Barzun's snippets in Dawn to Decadence are always good. Here's MdS from On Literature and Society (1800)---

In a democratic state, one must be continually on guard against the desire for popularity. It leads to aping the behavior of the worst. And soon people come to think that it is of no use--indeed, it is dangerous--to show too plain a superiority over the multitude which one
wants to win over.
