Strange Daze

What we are seeing is the work of The Mule. In the Asimov novels. The Mule is a special character, so special in fact that he is assumed to not exist. In fact, according to the known rules of the universe, he cannot exist. Because he does exist, thus invalidating the rules of the universe, he is the ultimate destroyer of worlds. His ability “is to reach into the minds of others and “adjust” their emotions, individually or en masse, using this capability to conscript individuals to his cause.” This is Trump. In the primary, he won mostly by causing the Republican Party to go insane and destroy itself. In the general, the media went nuts and convinced the Democrats they had nothing to fear. In Washington, the establishment has taken every opportunity to discredit itself in a mad quest to deny the reality of Trump. In this pandemic, the masters of the universe seem to be determined to do everything they can to invalidate themselves and legitimize their enemies.
Mini Mike spent a billion to become president of Samoa.“It isn’t unusual for campaigns to spend some money after they end — but the staggering size of Bloomberg’s post-dropout spending illustrates the unusual scale of his campaign, which ultimately saw the media mogul win only one contest: American Samoa. He did net delegates on Super Tuesday as well, but he spent more than $17 million for each delegate acquired.”

De Blasio’s social distancing tip line flooded with obscenities Mayor Bill de Blasio’s critics let him know how they really felt about him ordering New Yorkers to snitch on each other for violating social-distancing rules — by flooding his new tip line with crank complaints including “dick pics” and people flipping the bird, The Post has learned.

Cosmopolitan globalism is about to enter the blast furnace of reality. The people constantly yapping about “our democracy” were quick to pull the plug on the primaries. If you’re willing to send cops after people walking on the beach, just to make a point about who decides who can go outside, you’re probably going to have no qualms about ending the voting charade. What’s the point of asking the people when you don’t really care what they think? You can be sure that the urban rubes will go along with it.

The Amish Health Care System | The Amish outperform the English on every measured health outcome. 65% of Amish rate their health as excellent or very good, compared to 58% of English. Diabetes rates are 2% vs. 8%, heart attack rates are 1% vs. 6%, high blood pressure is 11% vs. 31%. Amish people go to the hospital about a quarter as often as English people, and this difference is consistent across various categories of illness (the big exception is pregnancy-related issues – most Amish women have five to ten children). This is noticeable enough that lots of health magazines have articles on The Health Secrets of the Amish and Amish Secrets That Will Add Years To Your Life. As far as I can tell, most of the secret is spending your whole life outside doing strenuous agricultural labor, plus being at a tech level two centuries too early for fast food

Another global warming propagandist buys beachfront property. The Wall Street Journal reported, “Tech entrepreneur Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates have paid $43 million for an oceanfront home near San Diego, Calif., in one of the largest deals recorded in the area.

Dr. Fauci: ‘I Can’t Guarantee’ It Will Be Safe to Physically Vote at the Polls in November Mad doctor believes people might follow his advice to cower under their beds for seven more months. Or maybe he’s finding a way to encourage people to vote for Biden. That assumes Biden still remembers he’s running for President, of course.

    I guess those Muslims figure that COVID-19 can’t move *laterally*?

    As irrelevant as it now is, Bloomberg’s campaign was fairly mystifying to me — at no point did it remotely occur to me, or did polls or any public “buzz” indicate, that he ever appealed to a significant number of voters. My best guess is that his formal candidacy was a mechanism to somehow funnel hundreds of millions of dollars into the Democratic Party’s general fund.

    I nominate Korba Coleman first up in the firing line at NPR. Never forgive her for her partisan performance as a presidential debate moderator. She should never be allowed to pose as a neutral observer/reporter again. She exposed herself as a partisan hack and should never be allowed to forget it.

    The bar code / boycott graphic above is fugazi. The only “location” information contained in a UPC or EAN is the country in which the code was registered / assigned. That has no connection to the origin of the actual product, which is obvious to anyone who has ever actually registered a UPC or EAN.

    You’ve been linked to an erroneously credited with “the mule” essay by Instapundit. I commented over there that the good Professor has misattributed Z-Man’s words to you, but perhaps you’ll have better luck notifying him of his error.

    Kind regards,

    You should have the very least give the Zman some credit since you cut and pasted part of his column from yesterday


  • Whitney April 23, 2020, 4:20 AM

    Whoops. I didn’t notice the link went to the z-man

    I agree that Mini Mike was not seriously running for President. He’s not that stupid. The idea that he was laundering his own money into the national Democrat Party is a good one. I think that his other major role was to take out Bernie Sanders. He filled the airwaves with anti-Bernie ads, something that the Party didn’t want Creepy Joe to have to do. Job done, he dropped out.

    Gates just ordered a $675 million yacht. Will probably dock in San Diego. Needs a place to stay.

    I figure that the DNC will make either Sen. Warren or Mrs. Obama VP and then get the House to initiate 25th Amendment proceedings against Mr. Biden.

    Mule; I remember him, & the 1st & 2nd foundation, a bit differently than Zman, who’s description of the Mule and his comparison to President Trump seems a bit garbled and incoherent, though admittedly, it’s probably well over half a century since I read the series.
