Twitter Will Allow Employees to Work at Home Forever Twitter discovers the internet. Hackernews excitedly names all the other companies who have discovered the internet, but the real meat of this topic is twofold: Hackernews has every possible opinion about working from home, all strongly held, and Hackernews is terrified that some bumpkin in eastern Ohio is somehow going to destroy real estate values in the Bay Area, seconds after the Executive Vice President of Talent Confiscation realizes you can hire Stack Overflow users for cornpone wages who are just as capable as the South of Market courtiers demanding options.
Maggie De Block Belgium’s “Minister of Health”
Never Trump Losers Prepare to Trade Their Dignity for Cash Yet Again Someone is pumping the 97 octane hi-test into this political clown car. A credulous tech zillionaire? The DNC? Some GOP donor whose blonde second wife won’t quit nagging him about Trump? We know who it isn’t – actual conservatives, who abandoned the S.S. Conservative Inc right before Cap’n Bill full-speeded ahead TWS into the iceberg that is Donald Trump. Yet somehow, this guy Billy Zaned his way to survival and went on to get some sap, or saps, to write checks to fund his unread Bulwark blog. What do those people think they are accomplishing? Trump’s at like 96 percent among actual Republicans. Has there ever been any indication that the Never Trump demographic consists of anyone besides D.C. fringies miffed that no one in the White House will return their calls?
Acting DNI Ric Grenell Announces the FBI Will No Longer be Giving Intelligence-Based Threat Briefings to Candidates – FBI Frozen Out The FBI cannot be trusted after what they did to President Trump during the 2016 election and beyond. Director Christopher Wray has done nothing to cut the cancer out and rebuild the public’s trust in the FBI.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged black Americans to ‘keep your ass at home’ to prevent the further spread of the Chinese corona virus.” Her full quote was, “Some people may be offended by what I’m about to say, but this is aunty Maxine and she keeps herself permission to say what’s in her heart and I want black people, my people, to keep your ass at home, and don’t be out on the street. Don’t be socializing, because in the final analysis, you’ve got to take care of yourself. A lot of people out there don’t care about you.” Fact-check: True. Socialists don’t care about anyone but themselves.
Sooper Genius ‘Greta Thunberg, right? She’s just 17. She’s most famous for NOT going to school. She’s a priestess of the global warming movement, of course.’ Bolt continued, with him and his guests barely able to contain their laughter at the humor of it all. ‘But now it seems she’s actually a guru of the corona virus — tragedy — whatever as well. CNN has put her on its panel tonight to discuss the corona virus crisis.’ CNN is the world leader in being a journalistic joke.
Michael Flynn Case: Judge Sullivan Unjustly Keeps It Alive Lest we forget, the primary function of the federal judiciary is to protect the accused from overbearing government action, not to agitate for the prosecution of Americans. Even if he’s convinced Flynn is as guilty as the day is long, one might expect Judge Sullivan to be disturbed by the FBI’s perjury trap, by its editing of and misrepresentations about the “302 report” of Flynn’s interview. By the prosecution’s withholding of exculpatory evidence and concealment from the court of its threat to prosecute Flynn’s son. By the derelictions of Flynn’s original counsel, who took the case notwithstanding a deep conflict-of-interest, and who appear to have counseled Flynn to plead guilty without ever reviewing rudimentary discovery — we know they never inspected the 302 (which is mind-boggling in a false-statements case); did they ever demand that Mueller’s prosecutors produce the recording of the Flynn–Kislyak “sanctions” conversation that is the heart of the case? Those are the kinds of questions a responsible judge would be posing, not, “How do I sentence this guy if DOJ won’t prosecute?” Regardless of what the DNC and CNN have to say on the matter, Flynn is supposed to be presumed innocent as far as Judge Sullivan is concerned.
How the 2020 Election Became a Referendum on China Part of the reason for this puzzling advance into the trap is the Democratic Party hasn’t fully recovered from its 2016 defeat. It remains deeply divided into its traditional and radical left wings and is steaming in circles, its rudder jammed hard to port. Joe Biden is a placeholder for a consensus that’s not there. And into this vacancy the former vice president becomes vulnerable to being set up as “Beijing Biden.”
The Chinese Dilemma The U.S. military is openly transitioning from a post 9/11 “small wars” force to one capable of fighting China. “Marines with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, or MEU, seized a small island and airfield with elite special operations airmen and soldiers as part of a test of its future fighting concept. That fighting concept, known as expeditionary advanced base operations, or EABO, will see Marines spread thinly across the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, operating from small bases — a tactic that will help Marines stay alive in a high-end fight with China.” The Marines no longer see themselves storming ashore against low-tech enemies but leading a networked battle against Beijing amid the thousands of islands of Southeast Asia
Lockdown or Herd Immunity? Is It Really a Choice? – Maggie’s Farm Reopening is the only option. Nobody knows enough about the virus to categorically state when we will, or how we will, be ‘safe’. But ‘safety’ is no longer the primary issue we should be considering. Whether we like it or not, we are far past that point. Now we’re talking about simple long-term survival.
