At the Sunrise Café...


... you can write about whatever you like.

I was fascinated by Jonathan Turley's post on Oct. 8: “A Means Of Distracting The Public”: Brennan Briefed Obama On Clinton “Plan” To Tie Trump To Russia. Professor Turley blogged about the handwritten notes of former CIA Director John Brennan that were declassified on Oct. 7, and "the utter blackout on the story" by the mainstream media. I subscribe to four national newspapers. Did they all miss this story? Short answers: New York Times: yes, a miss. Washington Post: mostly a miss. Wall Street Journal: mostly a miss in the news pages; the editorial pages got it. The winner? The Epoch Times. They did a nice job covering this story, and even gave Brennan's side of the story. Details here with links:

why didnt the Left hire a social worker instead of an armed 'guard'?

was the veteran shot by an idea?

While trying to take YOUR guns, they use theirs

Denver Dept of Excise and Licenses confirms “there is no record for an active licensed security guard now or ever for an individual named Matthew Doloff or Dolloff. If he was operating as a security guard, he was in violation of the law”.

Calm day in Tosa. Hopefully calm night when curfew resumed.

WHO Official Urges Halt to Lockdowns as Primary CCP Virus Control Method

Great Barrington Declaration - As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.

America's Frontline Doctors

Information about early treatments, mask filtration effectiveness, etc. Talk to your doctor.

The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It | Opinion

HCQ+Zn+AZ cocktail to control cellular transport ("border guard"), mitigate viral viability (i.e. planned pathogen), and control infections and inflammation, respectively. The key is early treatment, as this is complementary to passive and active defenses including immune system function. Wash your hands (i.e. sanitation and hygiene). Wear a mask (and goggles), sparingly, around expressive symptomatic individuals.

Postoperative wound infections and surgical face masks: a controlled study

Straight from the CDC: And Now The Hammer Falls: CDC KNOWS Masks Worthless

Well, not worthless, but some value in special circumstances, and limited value, perhaps insignificant, in general use.

And, of course, vaccine 2.0 (cloned antibodies), and early low-risk treatments, to cut a step and side-effects from the conventional vaccine 1.0 and drugs toxicity, and, I suppose, patient zero or near there, our own President Trump.

So..anyone looking into why trans folk are so statistically over-represented in Portland "unrest" mug shots?

Still, shops sport plywood windows..especially the small, local biz owners. Chase Bank has a huge wall of windows uncovered...

Last week the wife burned some old paperwork in the fireplace. Swept up still smoking ashes with a plastic bristled broom . Naturally, melted many of the bristles making the broom almost useless.
I didn't complain.
Also, did not complain when cardboard box she put ashes in began smoldering. Simply quickly took it outside and hosed it down.
Today, while at store getting a case of beer, bought her a nice new broom/dustpan combo.
Not the $8.99 one. The $14.99 good one.
Did I get a thank you? Not bloody likely.
My thoughtfulness and generosity is not always appreciated.

Legal question - what is the liability of a TV Station that hires a "guard" for their reporting team going into an expected confrontation situation - allows him to be armed and does not vet the "guards" background relative to the parties involved in the situation and does not vet the 'guards" legal right to carry a gun as part of his job ?

Legal question - If conservatives in Colorado now have two examples (or more) where their right for peaceful protest is dangerously and now fatally intimidated by the BLM/Antifa mob - and the city and police do not protect them or have procedures to protect their rights - does this become a Civil Rights case ?

All the city needs to do is to issue permits for protests / gatherings to specific locations, ensure groups on opposite sides of issues don't have locations near each other, and arrest anyone from one group going to the other location to harass or otherwise intimidate the other groups members.

OK...I don't 'do' social media. I had accounts when I was working because my much smarter-than-me wife said it would help professionally.

But I never posted a thing on Twitter or LinkedIn or Facebook and killed them all the day I hung up my monitor and mouse.

But I still go on Twitter to look at posts from various folk, Scott Adams among them.

So I notice that there is a sidebar with 'news' and what is trending.

Tonight it's all about tall black men who hate America but are good at putting a ball through a hoop. A sport that makes them ungodly wealthy invented by a white man, and yet they still hate America.

And a 'news' story about CardiB (who I don't know anything about other than she hates America), and I wonder...

...how is it that 12% of the population dominates the news? If Oprah lifts a finger it gets 24/7 coverage. Same for the Obamas, BLM, etc.

I've subscribed to the Wall Street Journal for years...very expensive. It has turned into BET. Every story on the weekend is about how minorities are affected by this or that. Every profile is of a black singer or actor. Every advertisement features black or inter-racial couples...

WTF happened to aforementioned America?????

parrots and falcons and jailbirds! Oh my!!

something forbidden, now foreboding, for Biden?

The Iran deal as hush money for a faked OBL hit/reelection boost?

In the United States, misprision of treason is a federal offense, committed where someone who has knowledge of the commission of any treason against the United States, conceals such knowledge and does not inform the President, a federal judge, a State Governor, or a State judge.

Guys, the NYT and its employees rendered themselves indisputably unserious with their handling of the Tom Cotton op-ed. You do not need to take them seriously any more. And you don't really need to pay all that much attention to them, save for the fun dunks.

There's been a huge rise in Amazon-shipped packages going to the wrong intermediate distribution point and never showing up. They lack the error correction capability of the post office. From the wrong distribution point they go back to restock, not to the right distribution point.

I’m missing something here.

What does this have to do with women’s right to vote?

Columbus was a world-historical figure, the harbinger of the European explosion, the marker of the moment Europe began to conquer the Earth. This process and its fallout has dominated the history of the 5 centuries after Columbus. It has changed us all, from Europe itself to anywhere humans live, as the cultural and social artifacts of this have changed every human life.

It is all this that the haters of Columbus really hate. But they cannot escape it no matter how they rage. They can shake their fists at the skies, but the skyline of their cities is stamped with the mark of Columbus, the Western-European architecture of modernity, no matter if it is in the Dominican Republic or Banda Aceh. He is our father, he is a critical reason for why we are the way we are.

Anyway, every year, on October 12, your Columbus day, our Dia de Hispanidad, I post this little Spanish-Cuban-Mexican piece (written by a Spaniard in a Cuban guajira form, played in a Mexican style), that in a modest way makes that case. There are many other versions.

Enjoy this week's BidenWatch.

Anyone else watch the 60 Minutes pre-election special last night?

Global warming - check
Covid19 - check
Lincoln Project - check

BTW, is there a more punchable face than Scott Pelley?
