Learning to Code

As CNN+ bites the dust, …Of course, they can always learn to code. I learned Fortran when I was a teenager and several other programming languages since then. These days, most coding is done with a keyboard, but I’ve found another tool useful for some forms of communication.OK, at least one of the Gentle Readers is going point out that manual telegraphy is as slow, essentially obsolete form of communications. That’s true, but Morse code still can deliver truthful information faster than CNN+ ever has. That’s why it will still be in use next month.

A Return to Normalcy

That was Harding’s successful campaign slogan in 1920. He was running in a country turned upside-down by the Wilson’s wartime proto-Fascist government. Wilson, who was no friend of the Constitution, had stuck the government’s nose into too many corners of American life, and the people pushed back against his overreach.

I’ve been writing about the overreach the Democrats have been engaging in since the 2020 election. They’ve sought to impose abnormality on the public, and the public is starting to push back. And the trigger seems to have been what is happening to kids while they are in school.

Forced cosmetic masking and coverups of crimes against students were issues that swayed the election in Virginia last year. Racist propaganda in the form of so-called Critical Race Theory, inappropriate sexual topics in kindergarten, and hidden efforts to promote and enable “gender” transitions have sent parent lobbying at state legislatures this year.

For the most part, it seems their pushback is winning. Several states have outlawed teaching racism. This week, Florida passed a ban on inappropriate class related to sexuality.

Of course, the media and the Democrats (BIRM) are howling, and it looks as if many of them are willing to go into this November’s elections without letting go of their overreach.

Meanwhile, the public is beginning to notice that inflation is at its highest in over 40 years, that the world is tending toward WW3, and that they can’t afford to buy $55k EVs. Things are about to get uglier.

Stay tuned.

Newsspeak and Newspeak

Has the CBC been made part of the Ministry of Truth?“Experts say.” Which experts? The lexicographers working on the next edition of the Newspeak dictionary?

It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well. … Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.

Their Democratic Republic

Bernie Sanders told CNN’s Jake Tapper the following on “State of the Union” last Sunday—

I hope that we will bring a strong bill to the floor of the Senate as soon as we can and let Mr. Manchin explain to the people of West Virginia why he doesn’t have the guts to stand up to the powerful special interests.

What Bernie misses is that the special interest group whose interest Joe Manchin is protecting is the voters of West Virginia—and that what he’s protecting is his constituents desire to keep their state’s sovereignty and its republican form of government as guaranteed by the Constitution. I’ll bet Joe Manchin is looking forward to explain to the people of West Virginia how he’s been standing up for their special interests.

 

Journalism or Jury Tampering?

Yesterday, a person who claimed to be a producer for NBC News working under the supervision of someone with MSNBC in New York was caught tailing the bus taking the Rittenhouse jury from the courthouse to their secret parking area. Today, Judge Schroeder banned anyone associated with MSNBC from entering the courthouse for the remainder of the trial. The judge also said—

This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following the jury bus–that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities for further action.

Certainly, the threat of doxing jurors could be considered a form of jury tampering. However, the prosecutor who would normally handle the case is the prosecutor trying to convict Kyle Rittenhouse and who has a potential interest in an unfair verdict. It will be interesting to see to whom the judge refers the matter.
