In the Man Cave Dealing with Idiocy Wholesale & Retail

Hanging out in my man cave, cleaning and fixing guns. It's very therapeutic. 

Got a 1944 "Last Ditch" Japanese Arisaka rifle which needed some minor fixes to the wood stock. Produced at roughly the same time as my M1 Garand, the Arisaka betrays the plight facing Japan then, particularly when compared to the M1. The Arisaka, normally a very fine rifle, by 1944 had become rather rough: the wood cheap and poorly finished, the butt plate crudely nailed on, and the metal components showing that they got rushed out the door with a minimum of the fine Japanese craftsmanship we expect on manufactured items. That said, however, it seems to work well. By the way, the Imperial chrysanthemum (the "Mum") is partially scratched off. The story on that is not entirely clear. I have read from reputable sources that the Palace ordered the "Mums" ground off before the rifles were surrendered to the occupying US forces. Another source says, no, that happened at the insistence of General MacArthur. Who knows? I don't, and can't find any good paper trail to support either version. Either way, I have half a Mum, so somebody didn't do a thorough job.

Also spent some time replacing the recoil spring on an old Spanish "Star" 9mm. It proved a bear to disassemble as, clearly, nothing had been done to it in a long, long time. Cleaned it up, replaced the recoil spring assembly and promptly had the slide, now feeling rejuvenated, bite my hand. Blood, curses. We'll see how it does at the range. Likewise, I inherited my father's handguns, one an S&W .357 "Highway Patrol" Special, which when he bought it in the 1950s was probably the most powerful commercially manufactured handgun you could get. Beautiful gun. Works great. I took it with me all around the world.  His S&W Model 39-2, needed quite a bit of cleaning but looks like it will be fine.

Enough of the fun stuff. 

Still struggling with a range of health issues--off to the MRI machine this afternoon--and with the overwhelming feeling of being pissed off at what is happening to our country and to the West. I can't imagine what sort of a place we leave our children and grandchildren. It apparently will be one in which they must feel shame, deep, deep shame, for their nationality and must repeatedly assert that "whiteness" is a unique form of evil. Joy and entertainment are to be banned and replaced with a ceaseless propaganda stream misrepresenting, ignoring, deforming, and deriding the vast accomplishments of Western Civilization--aka, European people: the BEST civilization ever to emerge on the planet Earth. Millions upon millions of people all over that planet risk their fortunes and their lives to live under that Civilization. Yes, it seems that "people of color" (What a stupid phrase!) want to live under the brutal rule of white patriarchy. Our own southern border serves as a vivid testament to that fact. Strange how that happens, no?

Our foreign policy looks hopeless. 

The so-called Biden administration has destroyed the deal reached with Mexico and Central America on immigration, and the border, as a consequence, is now a hot violent mess. The Middle East is falling apart again, as the so-called Biden administration seeks to kiss the butts of the Palestinian Authority and the Mad Ayatollahs of Iran. The former Senator from Delaware's meeting with Putin? A bad, bad joke with America the punchline and punching bag. What genius came up with the idea of the former Senator giving Putin a list of areas in which we would not accept Russian hacking? So anything NOT on the list is OK? Will we now negotiate what exactly is meant by any particular category? Does anybody remember the story of how after WWII we listed the areas of interest to the US and failed to list the Korean Peninsula? Stalin noticed, and guess what?

OK, we now have June 19 as a federal holiday. The Republicans should seize the moment to remind people what June 19, 1865 actually meant. It meant word, by way of the Union army, had gotten to the most remote corner of the Confederacy, Galveston, Texas, that slavery "in the states under rebellion" was forbidden. Guess what? It was a Republican President who did that. Guess who were the slave owners? Democrats, but you knew that.

More depressing thoughts later.

  1. The destruction of the Chrysanthemum was at the order of General MacArthur by the request of the Emperor of Japan, post surrender. The Chrysanthemum is the Imperial property mark, and it was requested that it was to be defaced on all captured weapons. This for the most part occurred on all the weapon bring backs that happened post surrender in Japan. Pre-surrender bring back weapons will often retain their property marks. Since your Arisaka is a last-ditch rifle, it was likely captured in Japan post surrender. You should follow a YouTube channel called “Forgotten Weapons”. All kinds of in-depth information about things like last ditch Arisaka rifles. I recall specifically an episode on that rifle.

    My thoughts on June 19th. I always felt that this was something for black folks. It was their holiday. They had their own private gatherings and celebrations of the event as they saw fit. I don’t feel connected to June 19th In that sort of way that I don’t celebrate Ramadan or Passover. Now the white man has taken that away, as white democrats always seem to believe they know what is best for black folks. Turning their private holiday into a sales event, and marketing campaign does not provide benefit to the fates of black folks in general.

  4. Interesting observation on your Arisaka. Lt Col (ret) John George in his book "Shots Fired In Anger" had much good to say about the Arisakas that he encountered in WW2. And over in the ETO, the K98K started off as a meticulously built rifle that, by the end of the war, also suffered a "Last Ditch" production. It had lost all of its finery in finish, both metal and wood~~~~yet it never lost its accuracy and reliability. One could make the same claim for the Arisaka.

    1. The Soviets must have been making "Last Ditch Mosin Nagants throughout the war, then.

    2. The Moisin Nagant was a pretty standard design, going back to the 1890s. Apart from revamping in in 1930 to have metric sights, not sure they did anything else to it. I have an M44 carbine, produced toward the end of the war. Very nicely made rifle and doesn't have any last ditchiness about it. Might also have depended on which factory made it.

My close observation of European medicine in general is that they are not usually very aggressive. They definitely practice a kind of triage, and, at 83ish, Dave is on the wrong side of that equation. Kindly keep me posted at Michael@Adamsnet.info.

      "I blame Trump!
      You may have wondered why I have been so quiet recently - or you may not, instead of which you were thanking God the old fool had finally shut up! Whichever, the reason is fairly obvious - nothing much is happening, certainly not enough to fire up my literary skills - and I heard that! Life in this ancient Isle has sunk to a level of total tedium. Politics have simply withered on the vine not least because Her Majesty's Leader of the Opposition has nothing to say and therefore does nothing! Meanwhile Boris bumbles on and as far as I can tell he does nothing either! It's all very boring but, beneath the tedium, it is also rather worrying because in politics nothing ever stops entirely - although snoozey Joe Biden gives it a try!

      Where and when and why will the 'S.H.1.T.' finally hit the fan? Internationally, of course, the answer is almost certainly China! They may not be direct actors but whatever kicks off they will be pulling the strings from behind the curtains. Well, it's no good worrying over those infamous 'unknown unknowns', sufficient unto the day thereof! Enjoy the peace and quiet whilst you may!

      By the way, I blame Trump because everyone does - for everything! [Sunday, 16 May 2021]

      Mr. Amselem.

      I'm not comfortable placing my address on this (any) blog in the JoeBama era so - out of respect to whom we are concerned I must be sparing on what I place on this thread. Suffice to say I don't think we may expect much in the way of "regular/future" posts there.

      (There is a 'breadcrumb trail' on here left some years ago. It is tedious and troublesome - purposefully - but there is a way to reach an *old *address I still have access to - at least for the CONUS curious - David from Oz I suspect maybe the only way "easiest" for us to connect might be - if you're the Oz Navy fellow I suspect you may be - might have to be a circuitous route using a military channel for us to establish contact.

      The sole *clue I can offer in the direction of that breadcrumb path is in a timeframe of back when the late unlamented McCain had utilized a (cough) "Syrian connection)" cough cough cough went by the name of Elizabeth O'Bagy.

      There was a period of time old farts like me used a process which 'formally' was known as steganography across the blogosphere.

    2. If this is true, it's an unmitigated disaster that US intelligence can't keep this under wraps. Why doesn't anybody take security seriously in the federal government?
      I cannot imagine that they could obtain this guy, and within three months determine that it's a time of maximum value to reveal it.

    3. The defection of Dong Jingwei is only a rumor. He appeared at a security conference in China on June 23. Frankly, were I a disgruntled Chinese security official, the USA would probably appear a poor place to find a quiet refuge. If the Biden administration is waking up, accepting that the Wuhan Virology lab is indeed the source of a manmade virus, and retooling policy, it is probably because US-based scientists and other intelligence sources have made discoveries.

    4. While we're at it, during my own short and inglorious diplomatic career, it was widely admitted that the US was critically weak in intelligence gathering capabilities. I also recall how, in one of the eraly training classes, we were told to write nothing that we wouldn't want to see out in public during our lifetimes. The only secrets the US seems able to keep are the academic records of the supposedly most intelligent pOTUS ever (the O).

  7. As to our new federal holiday, if the Republicans have any spine, every Juneteenth they would say something like this; "We celebrate this Juneteenth to honor Lincoln's Republican Army on liberating the last vestige of slavery by the Democrats. Unfortunately, the Democrats then replaced slavery with Jim Crow, segregation, the lynchings of 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites, and black designated gun control for the next 100 years. Finally, with majority Republican support, President LBJ was able to make illegal the Jim Crow and associated Democratic policies and enforced the anti slavery 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to our blessed Constitution.

Of course, he is aided by the utterly useless and supine Sir Keir Starmer, Her Majesty's non-existent Leader of the Opposition! Not that some Left-wing firebrand would do any better. The country has been flattened by this Covid-crap and is in no mood to get very excited about anything. Eventually, that will stop and the opposition fires will light up again but whether they will be effective only time will tell.

    Yeah Brother!
    In this case
    'Cold Fury' captures it,
    When folks ask if I'm flying
    -in for an event, I usualy say,
    Only if I'm the 'Pilot in Command'
    Truth be told though, I gave up my
    Private Pilot License decades ago,
    and still have no desire to go airborne,
    anywhere. Moreover, mingling in crowds goes
    beyond my Risk Managment guidelines... nowadays,
    just too many jerks who require attitude adjusting!
    Besides, my not wanting the burden of double-stack mags!

    Yup, Tis a might quiet over in this 'hood these days,
    but am enjoying the archives, and the traffic over at Duffs
    place, and the makeover there, has a Pro yet tasteful ambiance,
    and too the content is timely, informative & entertaining...

    Maybe Dip & the Boys'll have something cooking over here too
    when the time is right to become more active and politically
    involved? Seems everything the current CCP regime does tho, spells
    doom, until the stain of the Election steal is offset by exposure to the MAGA LIGHT and a liberal (sic) application of parasitic disinfectants andsomesuchstuff~~~

    Indeed. The Franz von Papen Republicans who colluded with the Communists to deliver the White House to Biden* seem to have a weird belief that everything will go back to normal in 2022 and beyond, the massive cheating will mysteriously cease, and the political pendulum will swing and put the GOP back in control of Congress (where we will be treated to More Failure Theater (TM)). They seem blissfully unaware of the political tsunami that is heading their way, a double whammy of ballot fraud and voter apathy (why vote for Republican candidates who think you are a dangerous terrorist because you don’t believe the 2020 election was squeaky clean?).

  30. Back in the day, as they say, I had both a Model 39-2 and a Model 28 Highway Patrolman. The 39-2 got me some funny looks from the purists, but the ONY time it faltered was with a sub-standard handload. Otherwise it would cheerfully digest everything from hot Milpec 2Z ball to mild vintage Wichester factortuyh stuff and an assortmet of handloads; sometimes, just for giggles, mixed ih the same mag.

    Speaking of mags, when I bought it, second-hand, back in 1979, it came with a few mags. All good except one, whicfitted perfectly, but would mot latch. It lackad a notch for that purpose nad was, in fact, a genuine ex-mil, mag for a Walther P-38.

    Then I twigged; the Model 39 was basically a P-38, rammed up the backside of a chopped Browning HP.

    The Model 28 was rather hefty, being built on the "N" frame, and rather "drab", being essentially a "poverty-pack Model 27. However, it was great for things like ten-pin matches. That ting swallowed a vast amount of serious reloads and some "interesting" factory stuff; "Hirtenberg" for example, without shaking loose.

    The classic Model 19 would not stand anything like the thrashing the 28 would.

    All gone now; just a lonely 9mm 1911 for service matches lurking in the safe.

    for teaching us "Skrælings" (wild indians), aka All American kids,
    the most important facts of life! One of his succinct jewels
    comes readily to mind-"the more you stir in it-the more it stinks".

    He left it to us 'Indians' to figure out the nuances of his pronouncements. Another, probably the most difficult, for me to internalize, was his most genteel, and most often employed caution,
    to we young band of Skrælings ... said in his soft voice with almost a pleading skowl on his brow:

  45. Well, THIS is embarrassing/infuriating:

    "I understand that the commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division has told the commander of the British special forces at the Kabul airport to cease operations beyond the airport perimeter.

    Maj. Gen. Christopher Donahue has told his British Army counterpart, a high-ranking field-grade officer of the British army's 22nd Special Air Service Regiment, that British operations were embarrassing the United States military in the absence of similar U.S. military operations. I understand that the British officer firmly rejected the request."

  46. Wish I could hear some of your analysis on this situation. Hope whatever's keeping you away... goes away.

    My guess is that US intelligence and possibly military assets are basically working involuntarily for the Taliban in Afghanistan right now on logistics and locations regarding stamping out the remaining Taliban resistance.
    Our evacuation effort and military forces in Kabul are surrounded and will certainly be wiped out if the US does not cooperate. Effectively, Biden handed the Taliban some 20k+ American hostages.

    Could we do something in reprisal if the Taliban sent 40,000 goons and ANA armor to wipe out the Kabul airport? Sure. But we're not going to send the US military back into Afghanistan, and the Taliban knows that as sure as they know the sun will rise tomorrow.

    We weren't even in this bad of a predicament when we abandoned Saigon.

    1. Only the perpetrators can reasonably know the motives and goals accomplished. The rest is going to be speculation. Yes, they can say with some certainty that they *were* hacked. And they might even be able to confirm some of their data being loose in the wild. But they cannot say with reasonable certainty *who* committed the attack. That's the nature of cybersecurity incidents. It's terrifically easy to plant inconclusive evidence.
      That said, an attacker *can* prove that they perpetrated an attack by furnishing crypto keys for traces left behind. To prove responsibility, one leaves an encrypted message, then provides the key in a public forum with a crypto-signed digest of that key for further proof of ownership.

      It would be impossible for someone unaffiliated with the attack to assert authentic responsibility illegitimately (ie, if only one party claims to be the source of the attack and provides the key, they are definitely involved with the attack at least in the sense that they owner the key or received the key directly or indirectly from the attackers)
      Contemporary cybersecurity makes the wild west look like a period of high accountability by comparison.

    I think Bolton's assessment is good, but may undervalue our strategic interest in the chip fabs going into Taiwan under TSMC. Intel has basically bet the farm on Taiwan's Q1 2022 3nm chip production, and the whole industry is clamoring to get on board their follow-on 2nm process subsequently.
    If those fabs come online and start producing as expected, we will have little choice to be involved in their defense. That sucks in some ways, because it's pretty clear that the government of Taiwan is not cut out to act in its own defense, but if they keep those chips coming, they remain strategically important.
    If those fabs are taken by CCP, that's a double net loss to the US, which will echo through our defense industry as we scramble just to secure microchips that are far inferior to what CCP would be using for its own military.

      "If those fabs are taken by CCP, that's a double net loss to the US, which will echo through our defense industry as we scramble just to secure microchips that are far inferior to what CCP would be using for its own military."

      Sounds like a JOB that only DJT has the
      negotiating, skills/balls/chutzpah, to accomplish!

      L@@king into my Krystal Ball, I see revealed
      a perfect storm of "Paybacks are a Bitch" heading
      China's way~~~ Lord Knows they owe US a bundle,
      not only for the China Flu they poisoned US &
      the world with but also for their gross Economic
      thievery of American Manufacture! Plus election tampering!

      Yes they hired trained and paid for the Pandemic poisoner facility, as well as their bought and paid for collaborators, "our enemies within", who delivered not only the stolen goods, but our very lifeblood, drained by the CCP gangsters.

      Seems to most Americans that those damages resulting from the CCP acts of war and terrorism, should be accounted for, in order to restore our Balance Sheet, and in addition, the former "Good Will" with the World, that "China" has almost destroyed...

      So, in the mean-time let's look forward to the export from Taiwan of the Next-Gen/s Chip "fabs" including complete design specs and materials list, required to build the "fab' factories here in the Good old USA! In order to compete, Toe to Toe with WORLD Foreign enemy #1... or perhaps we might also include a comprehensive boycott of all "made in China" products, since we seem to only discover their origins, after the "old folks" happen to discover the CHINA logo tag UNDER a Bright Light, w/a magnifying glass, while standing on their heads! BTW, beware of gift shops while on vacay, they are filled w/ "Made in China" fraudulent CRAP!

      Oh btw, #14 + sum, great link! only thing is I now have to read it all, cover to cover, to be, August 23, 2020 informed.

  54. I wish Biden would just come out with it: "Listen, I'm not in control here... the Taliban is calling the shots, and they are not going to *let* us extend our evacuation. If we stay past that, the Taliban will blow up the airfield and then take our soldiers captive. At that point, airstrikes would only be a matter of retaliation. That's the reality of the situation we are now in, so we're going to have to abandon some allies there."

    While acknowledging truth is always respectable, the follow-on question of "how did we get in this situation" illustrates major flaws in the administration, so we'll just pretend that we are 'deciding' whether we can extend the withdrawal deadline, when for the last two weeks we've actually been 'begging' the Taliban for an extension.

    It's despicable... failures... then lies on top of failures. The media pretends to hold Biden's feet to the fryer, while regurgitating the "Biden has chosen" line. There's never been a choice.

    by or for Biden, his always decomposing slate of choices
    appear to be stuck, somewhere between the proverbial Rock
    and a Hard place. His character, or more honestly, the lack of it, dictates his predisposition to inevitable personal, moral, and political failures... 'We the people' have known his dark & phony sides for a long time now...too bad for US, the

  56. I always suspected the Afghanistan project would fail the moment the U.S. pushed for presidential democracy rather than reinstating the old king. You can't have a Western-type democracy without adherence to societal and philosophical norms and Afghanistan never had that. Corruption with confused lines of authority was the result. Whereas in a monarchy - even one with a parliament - the go-to address for corruption is the top and everything trickles down from there.
    The U.S. withdrawal did not have to be such a defeat. But that's the sort of thing the radical lefties in government wanted for many years: a military defeated abroad can be recalled and re-tooled to convert citizens into subjects and the more messes created the more crookedness those in power can pursue while the eyes of the people are elsewhere.

    1. It would take 100 years of functional indoctrination with no respect for local customs. There would need to be pretty much no living generation that remembers 'the old ways'.... certainly not any generation in leadership.
      20 years was a start, if 'fixing' was the goal.... there were probably a few people with sane values as a result of that 20 year blip of indoctrination, but they're smart enough to have fled the country, no doubt.

    Hat Tip, and to read the 'GO GET'em from'
    ~~~Over~There~~~too... great to know that at
    least one score-keeper, is wearing glasses!

    Wednesday, 01 September 2021
    The darkest hour comes before the dawn
    So Sleepy Joe's not for "remaking other countries" anymore?

    Well let's take a look at the scores on the doors then ...

    For

    WWII: Germany, Italy, Japan. Cold War: Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Rumania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, South Korea. Others: Israel, Ukraine (minus Crimea), Rojava.

    Agin

    Vietnam, North Korea, Iraq, Syria (minus Rojava), Cuba (just missed a sitter there), Afghanistan.

    You're winning, Uncle Sam!

    Stiff upper lip old boy, and remember: 14 years after that helicopter flew off the roof of the Hotel Saigon the wall came down and Communism / Socialism collapsed, freeing billions of people totally or partially from the most murderous ideology and regimes in the history of mankind!

    That was the greatest victory in the history of warfare.

    So broad sweeping generalisation statements like "we're not remaking other countries anymore" are wrong-headed.

    Pick and choose, "Watch and shoot" as my old section corporal used to say, and "It ain't what you do it's the way that you do it, and that's what gets results" as Bananarama and Fun Boy Three used to sing.

    Don't quit while you're ahead. "If you're going through hell, keep going" as Winnie once said.

    Keep going, and go for the whole globe.

    You can do it.

  67. What a complete and utter betrayal of the people in uniform on the ground who have done and were doing the hard yards.

    Who in their right mind in a command situation gives the enemy the date on which you are going to launch an operation - in this case the withdrawal from Afghanistan?

    The Biden administration didn't have the decency to let one of its closest allies, Australia, know it was going to happen to allow for a proper evacuation of our personnel and those Afghanis who had assisted us..

    On top of that not allowing the military enough time to get out the sophisticated equipment is unforgivable and just handed the "Hairies" a gift to use against the West at a time of their choosing.

    And then followed the death of the US personnel at Kabul airport as a result of this idiotic decision by an inept and callous administration. Those of us who have worn our country's uniform know there is a risk associated with the profession of arms but that is different to being put in harms way by the ineptitude of politicians.

    US and coalition service personnel can hold their heads high for doing there part of the job with skill and valour. The Democrat administration should hang its head in shame for its betrayal of its own uniformed personnel and those of its friends and allies.

    Hang in there cousins you have a lot to be proud of in your armed services and a lot to be angry about with your current federal political administration.

    2. Something I didn't know, as it got blotted out by the covid-craze... we treated with the Taliban.
      Who knew? I didn't. I don't pay much attention.
      Our delegation should consider themselves lucky that they didn't get turban-bombed like Rabbani.
      Mistake from top to bottom... everybody involved should be fired.
      I can understand impatience with corruption and lack of progress in Afghanistan, but whoever sold us on a 'short course rehabilitation' was lying out their butts.
      It's a 100 year operation to rehabilitate a *culture*. Europeans got the *actual* short course (1650-1800AD... basically from the start of enlightenment and ending just before Marx & goons twisted everything into a knot of doom). It involves getting the message out to *parents* that their children will be *successful* if they attend westernized schools with western values. (Sorry democrats, sending the mixed signals that Taliban-style culture is 'ok' undermines all of us...)
      Parents do *not* want their children to be screwed over like they were and will gladly send their children to places of *opportunity*.
      But that's not it.... in fact, it likely won't be 'it' until everybody who grew up tribal-ist is long gone.

      "We left and things went to crap, therefore it is certain that no matter when we left, everything would go to crap anyways." <-- This logic is completely asinine... "I folded before the flop, therefore I never could have won."
      And now we have scotus baiting the dems to pack the court. Don't do this... if they're going to make a major reversal, wait until 2023 when the democrats don't own both houses. None of the conservative(ish) judges are old... just give it a little time and forbearance.... send the cases back over and over and misspellings... whatever.. don't bait the progs when they have two branches!

  71. Seems like the analyst surprise at the speed with which the Taliban dismantled that ANA may be due to new drone-driven tactics shared from the azeri conquest of armenia in the nagarno-karabakh disaster. The crazies have new tactics that are going to take some time to figure out and respond to.
    It also explains how the NRF went from having a thousand Taliban trapped in a turkey shoot, to being routed in only a day. Pakistani UAVs turned the tide.... because Pakistan isn't afraid of offending its pajama-boy class by using force to achieve a strategic goal.

    The populace of the USA is soft and squishy beyond reason.. we can't even be inconvenienced by *think* about violence in support of freedom elsewhere... hopefully our experienced soldiers will run for office in bulk and bring some sense to this government.

    Both Trump and Biden found it easier to treat with the Taliban than with each other. The freaking T-a-l-i-b-a-n. But abortions and gender dysfunction, why don't we make politics about that while the new caliphate spreads????

    And what does our twitter-class have to say about this? "The war was unwinnable, which is why we left." No.. .the was was unwinnable *because* we left. There is a concrete reason we didn't ditch Afghanistan either before or after nabbing KSM and OBL... To keep 9/11 from happening again. Now, we've asked the Taliban "not to do it again", and they told us they wont. Good enough for Trump and Biden.

    Never been more disappointed in my own country. Yes, I don't know that Trump would have followed through, but he set the thing in motion and released 5000 taliban prisoners. He's nowhere near free of incompetence in this. Biden pulled the trigger, but Trump setup the shot. Teamwork where it shouldn't be.

    SEPTEMBER 8, 2021
    THIS IS WHY THEY RELY ON SUBVERSION AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE AS OPPOSED TO OPEN MILITARY CONFLICT: China Can’t Feed Itself. “In short – China is desperately short of crucial grains and oilseeds needed for domestic human and animal consumption. Understand, food security is not an unknown issue in China. So too is it widely known that CCP media organs and official ministries routinely lie about a range of food-related issues, from grain and oilseed production to hog population and slaughter figures. The CCP even went so far as to engineer the collapse and takeover of Swiss agriculture and chemical conglomerate Syngenta several years ago to short-path China’s rise to being a tier one agriculture research powerhouse alongside the United States, Japan, and the European Union. . . . Despite China’s rosy claims about its 2020 production, its year-long buying binge for available global inventory of grains and oilseeds indicates significant flooding-related production woes in several major agricultural reasons in the Yangtze River and Amur River basins. 2021 is shaping up to be potentially as bad. Notably, the critical crop-producing province of Heilongjiang (16% of China’s total corn production, and 40% for soybeans) is showing significant excess moisture stress during the critical corn development stages between pre-tassel and silking, with excess moisture also being a major factor in yield drag for soybeans during seed-fill. The general time period for both crops to reach these reproductive stages are July through end of August.”

    Plus: “Adding all of this up, we see that China has an astoundingly large quantity of protein to produce and import for its population. Taken together with the ruling Chinese Communist Party’s fears of social upheaval due to food insecurity (and the stain upon the party from the Great Leap Forward), the impetus for much of China’s belligerence in global fishing and crackdowns on commodities trading become clear. Broadly speaking, the confluence of supply side and logistics disruptions has formed into a perfect storm, where China cannot as readily meet its current food demand through production, trade, acquiring foreign food manufacturers, and even illegal activities such as illicit fishing. Which begs the question – what can we extrapolate from this information to better-predict China’s behaviors in the coming months, the US’ responses, and the impact to global stability?”

    It doesn’t beg the question, it raises the question. But yeah, it’s a good question.

    Fauci Bats a Thousand
    by Mark Steyn
    Mark's Midweek Notebook
    September 8, 2021

    ~Anthony Fauci appears to have perjured himself in his touchy exchange with Senator Rand Paul regarding whether or not his agency funded "gain-of-function" Coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Alas, the court eunuchs of the US media couldn't be less interested in the story, so Fauci is still taken seriously when he warns about the irresponsibility of going unmasked to crowded sports events - as opposed to the irresponsibility of outsourcing gain-of-function to a politicized science lab under Communist control and with the security protocols of the average dentist's office.
    <...>The ChiComs are cunning; they are not complete arses, as almost all our leaders are. Four-and-a-half million people are dead...the original super-spreader was Anthony Fauci...looks increasingly like he was.

  76. Good to hear from Gov. DeSantis:

    "God Bless Our Great Nation"

    Ron DeSantis
    Sat 9/11/2021 1:27 PM
    image002.png
    Wt,

    The 20th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, should prompt us to reflect on the thousands of lives lost and the enduring legacies of those who perished in the attacks.

    It is also a time to remember the sacrifices made by so many men and women in our military, as well as their families, in the years since to help protect our country. Empty chairs at the dinner table, missed holidays and birthdays, and precious time with friends and family have all been forfeited in pursuit of a mission for the good of the nation.

    I was honored to have the opportunity to spend time this week with some of Florida’s veterans – many of whom served in wars following September 11th – and thank them for all they have done fighting for the United States of America.

    Our service members selflessly give so much to our country, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom. *These brave warriors deserve our utmost appreciation and gratitude, not only today but every day."

    No words or actions can encompass our gratitude for all that our veterans and active-duty military do to protect us. It is imperative that our service members know that they will always have our support. They are truly the best America has to offer.

    Sincerely,

    Ron DeSantis

    *Amen, and Thank You Governor!
    Well said and greatly appreciated~~~

  83. Hey, 'Let's Roll.' This is not your goddam blog. We are holding a vigil for an online friend and mentor and we don't need paragraph upon paragraph of rambling schizo Boomer BS littering it up. Put a lid on it.

  84. "Hey, 'Let's Roll.' This is not your goddam blog. |We| are..."
    ..."|we| don't need paragraph upon paragraph..."

    Yo! 'Rivets for Brains', I'm "On Watch", with reference
    to the "Wee"turd/s in your pocket,
    your 'damnation of God',
    and the alleged "Vigil"
    you're "holding online".
    Evidently you haven't
    learned much from the
    Diplomat, you label as
    your"friend and mentor"...

    Oddly, for one laying claim to being
    the anointed 'vigil' monitor in chief here,
    you choose to revoke the promise that you
    made to Dip to depart, during your last
    low-brow sock-puppet overreach iteration...
    trolls are amusing from time to time, but
    like most, Rats, Rinos, & communistas, they
    don't age well in the USA, as their 'silencing the
    speaker' tactics, become quite obvious and toxic to
    even the most casual observer, yes, Trolls 'get old' fast.

    As for my "lid", I don't wear it below-decks, but
    do so when ashore...give me your coordinates and
    I'd be happy to show it to you... till then, DIPs
    blog remains what it has always been to me,
    a 'Political Forum' that invites those of good will,
    and a modicum of social skill, to interact and share
    their Political thoughts, but leave the personalized
    ad hominem invectives at home where your mommy can
    provide continuing guidance, and kiss yer boo boo
    as necessary~~~

    Btw, if a simple majority of the
    commenters here on "The Diplomad"
    Blog or the Boss himself would like
    me to 'stand down', I'd be willing
    to entertain the notion~~~
