Mayorkis is still lying about the amount of illegal invaders were in the country before Joe Biden opened up the border for millions more...

NOW he wants to give them all amnesty.

Screw New York and Marthas vineyard. THEY need MORE illegals now. They own this crisis. This is what they voted for.

Omaha native and billionaire Charlie Munger passed away at age 99.

A genius of the first order and a very wise man.

I saw him at the BRK meeting this Spring. Same as usual. Sharp and funny. But in a wheelchair.

I read or heard the story about how he was a young lawyer in LA when his wife divorced him. He was totally crushed and broke. I think he said he broke down and cried. But he overcame that adversity, remarried and went on to make a fortune. We all carry our own private burdens.

At one point, either Charlie or Warren described practicing law as a hobby. Charlie then went on to work full time in business.

His dad was a lawyer in Omaha. Charlie grew up in Dundee and worked at the grocery store owned by Warren Buffett's grandfather. Charlie's uncle was a federal judge in Lincoln who was appointed by TR.

Charlie and Warren didn't know each other in Omaha because Warren was younger. Charlie was in Omaha to settle his Dad's estate and a mutual friend got them together because he thought they would get along. Charlie and Warren got to talking at dinner and the friend left as he was out of the conversation. What a chance event that really made a huge difference in many lives. Charlie was the one to convince Warren to abandon the "cigar butt" school of extreme value investing. That was key for Warren to really grow the business.

A recent favorite Charlie Munger quote, "Crypto is rat poison squared."

"Charlie Munger always made money for his partners."

Comment by an Omaha friend on Charlie Munger. Agree with every word.

"A very sad day for investors, for Nebraskans, for America: one of our leading lights, a genuine man of principle, the wise, trenchant, and hilarious Charles "Charlie" Munger, second-in-command at the renowned Berkshire Hathway, has died at age 99, just over a month from his 100th birthday.

I had the good fortune to meet Charlie at the opening of the Anderson Munger YMCA in Koreatown.

His words about our shared native home of Omaha, Nebraska, still ring true:
“I’m proud of being an Omaha boy,” Munger said in a 2017 interview with Dean Scott Derue of the Michigan Ross Business School. “I sometimes use the old saying, ‘They got the boy out of Omaha but they never got Omaha out of the boy.’ All those old-fashioned values — family comes first; be in a position so that you can help others when troubles come; prudent, sensible; moral duty to be reasonable [is] more important than anything else — more important than being rich, more important than being important — an absolute moral duty.”

God bless you, Charlie. And thank you.

My father also died within a month of his 100th birthday. We decided to embellish a little and called him 100 years old on his gravestone. Anyone who is bothered to do the math can see it isn't true, but few will notice. We thought he would approve of the small deception.

Lem the artificially intelligent said...

BBC News: "Robert De Niro told an awards ceremony a speech he was reading had been edited without his knowledge, removing critical comments about Donald Trump.

The actor initially appeared confused while reading from an autocue on stage at the Gotham Awards in New York.

He then told the audience: "The beginning of my speech was edited, cut out. I didn't know about it."

He went on to read the original script, referring to Trump's "lies" among other things, after finding it on his phone.


The Gotham Awards kicked off this year's film awards season, and De Niro was introducing an honour for Killers of the Flower Moon, in which he appeared."

The powers that be, are conditioning people to accept the idea that it is ok to censor political speech. This is terrible. It's worse than terrible.

And, again, I thank Ann Althouse for her free speech forum.

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/11/27/world/middleeast/elon-musk-israel-visit.html

Video shared by Mr. Netanyahu’s office showed the two men, accompanied by security personnel, walking through the village in the rain and inspecting the blackened ruins of a house. Mr. Netanyahu said on X that he gave Mr. Musk the tour “to show him up close the crimes against humanity committed by Hamas.”

In a conversation with Mr. Netanyahu broadcast on X, Mr. Musk called the visit to Kfar Aza “jarring” and said he also had been shown footage of the Oct. 7 massacre that he found “troubling.”

Mr. Netanyahu spent the bulk of the conversation explaining the rationale for the war in Gaza. Mr. Musk said in agreement that it was important to “get rid of the ones who are hellbent on murdering Jewish people,” though he also added that it was important to minimize civilian casualties in the enclave. “The rebuttal is often made that, well Israel has killed civilians also in Gaza,” Mr. Musk said. “But there is an important difference here, which is that Israel tries to avoid killing civilians.”

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/11/27/elon-musk-arrives-in-israel-flight-tracker

After touring the decimated kibbutz of Kfar Aza with Netanyahu, Musk said in a conversation with the prime minister on X Spaces that it was “jarring to see the scene of the massacre” and that Israel has “no choice” but to eliminate Hamas.

I had the privilege of attending a small setting speech and a panel by Munger at my work. Even in his early '90s, he was an absolutely incredible mind and a real gentleman. I was blown away by how sharp he was and how insightful he was. He will be missed. Most could learn a lot from him. Many have.

“Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Day by day, and at the end of the day-if you live long enough-like most people, you will get out of life what you deserve.” ~ Charlie Munger

Mr. Munger certainly got what he deserved. He will be remembered as one of the wisest business minds of our time.

In this case the "powers that be" the people who invited De Niro to speak, presumably with a request not to get political. It was their event. He could have said no. In the end he wasn't censored anyway, but he was disrespectful of his hosts. And, as usual, a jerk.

Continuing a theme, Why is there new pornography?

You can buy -- cheap -- decks of playing cards with images of naked or semi-naked women. And men. You can view movies of pretty much every conceivable sexual pleasure or perversion or however you might choose to describe the matter. There is, nothing new, under the Sun, or the Moon, or the blinding light reflected from a silvered umbrella. One might imagine, that the continued profitability of the pornography industry is driven by a process of ongoing transgression, of new taboos, violated -- while you wait! For a few dollars extra. But that isn't really the case. Most new porn is just old porn, with a new cast. And while the new performers are certainly, in many cases, quite attractive, so were the old ones.

Why is there new porn?

wildswan said...

Most BLM types become very indignant when they see outsiders judging the black community based on a few newspaper stories. Rightly so. And yet so often these days you see those same BLM types judging the state of Israel in its relations with the Palestinians based on a few newspaper stories.

Jupiter said...

I mean, I can understand why there continue to be pornographers. Men continue to encounter attractive women, and they want to find some way to get those women out of their clothing. And it turns out, that the offer of money, and/or the suggested possibility of some sort of fame, is one means to that end, when other means may, perhaps, not avail. But why is there an ongoing market for NEW pornography? It's not like the old pornography has worn out, or been used up, or somehow lost its luster. It would seem as if the pornography market should be essentially saturated, with no room left for competition outside a few niche perversions.

But that is not the case. Not at all.

USPS cannot deliver packages and mail to Bemidji addresses because of the monstrous amount of last-mile packages sent through the Northern MN PO. U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, the crook appointed by Donald Trump (who let a $120 million postal contract with his XPO Logistics company) continues as Postmaster, signed contracts with Amazon assuring immediate package delivery.

Dejoy won't expand Bemidji personnel services, so no last-mile deliveries are on time. It seems to me that Amazon, through local address pick-ups, could advise Bemidji residents to use such pick-up locations for better service but Jeff Bezos isn't helping either. Or shipments could be made using UPS and FedEx as was the case in the past if USPS charged package delivery at a higher rate. Since when did the post office become afraid to raise prices?

"Pelosi’s action—and her inaction—diverted attention from that message. She refocused our sights on the word “insurrection” to keep President Donald Trump from returning to the White House because of the true state election totals of 2020. And the Left continues nonstop that same charade to keep Trump from the White House in 2024.

With each passing day, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the two biggest blemishes recently on America as a great and free nation are the stolen presidential election of 2020 and the subsequent incarceration of those patriots who exercised their guaranteed First Amendment right to free speech to contest it. The election tampering advanced the Left’s directive of “fundamental transformation” of the country, which included imprisonment without bail or trial of those with whom the tyrannical administration disagreed.

So, what next?

Unless the country itself can see that the Left’s January 6, 2021, narrative was and is a smoke screen for the real insurrection of November 3, 2020, America will need to brace itself for a repeat performance of that nefarious action on November 5, 2024."

Pelosi belongs behind bars for what she did to innocent people.

While attending an October 2022 Democrat Fundraiser, Greenfield can be heard saying Biden is the “best President in the history of the United States.”

Meanwhile, Greenfield was front row, yelling “Yeah!”, shaking her head in agreement and taking video of Democrat politicians as they bash Trump!

This was while the #TrumpCivilFraud case was pending.

Even worse, video shows Greenfield campaigning and gathering signatures (“petitioning”) with the Grand Street Democrats on behalf of Letitia James’ 2022 primary campaign for New York State Attorney General!!

She’s sitting at the entrance to the event with a Diet Coke (it’s not working) gathering signatures on a green sheet of paper to get Letitia James on the primary ballot!

"The official Israeli death toll from the attack is estimated at 1,200 civilians, revised from an initial estimate of 1,400. Among this figure are several hundred civilians, which Israel says were killed by Hamas militants. Other testimony from survivors of Oct. 7 suggests an alternative explanation—that in its fervor to defeat Hamas, Israeli commanders may have willingly targeted and sacrificed Israeli soldiers and civilians in the crossfire."

Raised in the great depression, and a WWII veteran, in 1949, Charlie Munger was just 25 years old. He was hired at the law firm of Wright & Garrett for $3,300 per year, or $42,000 in inflation-adjusted dollars.

A few years later, in 1953, Charlie was 29 years old when he and his wife divorced. He had been married since he was 21. Charlie lost everything in the divorce, his wife keeping the family home in South Pasadena. Munger moved into “dreadful” conditions at the University Club and drove a terrible yellow Pontiac, which his children said had a horrible paint job. According to the biography written by Janet Lowe, Molly Munger asked her father, “Daddy, this car is just awful, a mess. Why do you drive it?” The broke Munger replied: “To discourage gold diggers.”

Shortly after the divorce, Charlie learned that his son, Teddy, had leukemia. In those days, there was no health insurance, you just paid everything out of pocket and the death rate was near 100% since there was nothing doctors could do. Rick Guerin, Charlie’s friend, said Munger would go into the hospital, hold his young son, and then walk the streets of Pasadena crying.

One year after the diagnosis, in 1955, Teddy Munger died. Charlie was 31 years old, divorced, broke, and burying his 9 year old son. Later in life, he faced a horrific operation that left him blind in one eye with pain so terrible that he eventually had his eye removed.

But by the time he was 69 years old, he had become one of the richest 400 people in the world, been married to his second wife for 35+ years, had eight children, and countless grandchildren.

Beyond investing and business, Charlie teaches us about resilience, dignity, and life well lived. Rest in peace to a legend.

So the government has joined with private organizations to create sock puppets on social media "to counter disinformation," which is more often that not, just true things that they don't want you to hear, to pursue false flag operations, "like the CIA does overseas." The guy who organized the Charlottesville demonstrations was a couple of months before, a Hillary supporter, who posted on his personal blog his admiration for "agent provocateurs" There is a lot there.

Now, a large trove of new documents, including strategy documents, training videos, presentations, and internal messages, reveal that, in 2019, US and UK military and intelligence contractors led by a former UK defense researcher, Sara-Jayne “SJ” Terp, developed the sweeping censorship framework. These contractors co-led CTIL, which partnered with CISA in the spring of 2020.

In truth, the building of the Censorship Industrial Complex began even earlier — in 2018.


https://twitter.com/shellenberger/status/1729538920487305723

There is a huge trove of government documents regarding censorship and disruption of Republicans. Ultimately, it's about creating a permanent one-party state that will do whatever the neocons want. It's going great, isn't it? That's because adversarial debate works better, and shutting it down leads to disaster every time.

So next time you wonder why Mutaman, for example, gets upset when Trump criticizes a neocon mouthpiece like The Atlantic, or why gadfly seems so stupid, he can't really be that stupid, he just refuses to engage arguments he knows he is going to lose, or why when "Chuck" disappears, "Rich" shows up, remember that the government and allied private organizations, which the government uses to get around restrictions on its activities, is behind a lot of sock puppets. Maybe these guys aren't sock puppets, maybe they really drink the Kool Aide, who can really know? But it does make you wonder.

And if you wonder about how false flags like Charlottesville or J6 (Remarkably similar to the false flag that allowed the US backed coup in Kiev in 2014, BTW) could happen in America? Well, look no further than the security apparatus in the US that Barrack Obama weaponized against his political opponents.

"It' can't happen here." What they used to say.

"Yes we can!" - Barrack Obama, who pledged to "fundamentally restructure" politics in the United States.

This war has been one more Biden debacle. He flunked the third grade, he is utterly corrupted. He is a kleptocrat. We should never have entrusted this man with the presidency, and I have my doubts that the American people actually did, given the fact that the CTIL whistleblower documents seem to indicate, much as that Time Magazine article did, that 2020 was a color revolution, cooked up the same way we cook them up overseas.

Remember when reading replies to this, if any should be forthcoming, that one of the things our government does on our behalf is to create sock puppets to derail narratives. American versions of the Communist Chinese "fifty centers." We have the documents now. No wonder they hate X so much.

So one elderly peace activist hostage says she was "Treated Well", while dozens of others report they were treated horribly, starved, beaten, kept in cages, forced to watch films of the murders, and more. They also report that the kidnapped 10-month-old was murdered along with the 4-year-old sibling and mother, but Hamas says they didn't do it. There's a full report on Ace of Spades.

Of course, many of the first hostages released reported they were treated well, but most of them had relatives still in captivity: Hamas releases some women and children, but keeps others, plus all the men, and rarely releases a whole family.

Some people will believe anything.
