The decline and fall of Governor Eric Greitens

Because of the gravity of the news, which will probably mean a flood of new details and developments, and the chances that this will drastically affect Missouri state politics, I have made this a “sticky” post.

Your Blogmeister’s Secret Hideout

Originally posted November 15, 2017, and frequently updated since then

This is a “sticky” post.

Since I’ve written many posts since my return to functional coherence in mid-November, any posts about my condition I wrote here upon my return, and also subsequent ones, are buried in the avalanche. So, I’m going to use the opportunity of this sticky post to link to them directly.

Misplaced Priorities

23 05 2018

Stockholm

“The Swedish government has begun sending all 4.8m of the country’s households a public information leaflet telling the population, for the first time in more than half a century, what to do in the event of a war.”

Read down, and it’s all about MUH RUSSIA.

You know, I’m just old enough to have a conscious memory of the Soviet Union as an empire that displayed a threatening hostile posture, and I don’t remember the Swedes being this scared of Russia even at a time when they should have been.

We all know what’s going on here:  The Jews are so paranoid about Vladimir Putin for whatever reason that this is the root cause of the mainstream domestic left in the Western world losing whatever mind it had to begin with over Russia, dragging them into every second conspiracy theory of theirs to explain their hung toenails or their grannies tripping over throw rugs.

But don’t you see the misplaced priorities of it all, when it comes to this brochure?  They’re worried about a Russian invasion which only has Powerball odds of happening, when right under their noses, they’re losing Malmo.

There isn’t any invasion problem that Sweden has that they themselves aren’t facilitating with legal immigrant visas, refugee status and lax immigration enforcement.  If Vlad really did want to invade Sweden, he wouldn’t use conventional military, he’d dress the soldiers up as Arabs, Pakistanis and Somalians, and have them learn phrases in the relevant languages about being oppressed and LGBTQ-BLT-BBQ-LOL and a victim of *-ism/*-phobia and manufacture fake under-18 birth certificates for them.

If they don’t want to worry about that, then they could worry about the Stockholm-based world’s biggest cloud music service giving the Pro-Defamation League and the Poverty Palace veto power over its content.

The Machiavellians, Part II

22 05 2018

Washington, D.C.

The Hill:

WH aides intentionally compose Trump tweets with grammatical mistakes: report

White House staffers who sometimes compose President Trump’s tweets intentionally include grammatical errors to mirror the president’s style, The Boston Globe reported Monday.

The Globe, citing two people familiar with the process, reported that staffers will use hallmarks of Trump’s own manner of tweeting, such as unnecessarily capitalized words and fragmented sentences.

May I suggest there’s another reason why both Trump himself and his staff are deliberately planting grammatical errors in his Tweets?

Me, July 10, 2009:

Politico notes that spelling errors are a frequent feature of official Obama Administration documents.

My advice to Politico, or to anyone who wants to make a big deal out of this, is to chill out.

I think the Administration has a deliberate policy of making spelling errors in its documents, web pages, press released, and other things. The reason is that they know that there are legions of Obama critics that are elitist know-it-alls, (even if they call themselves “conservative,”) that will make a big deal of a spelling error. The white working class, (a swing demographic, BTW), will react by sympathizing with the President.

It is not beyond this White House to be so Machiavellian. The reason I know this is that this is something I would do if I were running for public office, or actually held public office. (More so the former.) I would deliberately and purposefully order frequent and noticeable (but not ubiquitous and egregious) spelling errors on my campaign websites, press releases and documents. That way, I would get liberal elitist know-it-all to pick on me, which would in turn garner me the sympathy of the white working class.

That was the kind of person I was when I was in elementary school. Now I know why everyone hated me so much, because I now hate that kind of person so much.

Correlation, Causation

22 05 2018

Cambridge, Massachusetts

That’s where Harvard and MIT are based.  So you’d think, between those two institutions, that someone would have gotten to Mayda, Peri and Steingress, and explained to them that there are these things called dependent variables and independent variables, and these fallacies called correlation-causation issues.

And that’s what I think going on here.  I can buy that where there is high skilled immigration, there is blue team voting, where there is low skilled immigration, there is red team voting, both 2010 delta 1990.  But I think the immigrants contribute statistically zero to the deltas.  I more so think that they are effects of more fundamental underlying causes which drive the two-party political deltas over those two decades.

Here’s the takeaway that next to nobody other than your ever-lovin’ blogmeister can discern:

The real danger here is cloud computing, cloud applications, cloud data storage.  To me, the Pro-Defamation League and the Poverty Palace are sideshows.

Cool, right?

Not so fast.

The map is in the Mercator projection, which SJWs today inform us is a form of hate speech.

She wanted to “mentor” a sixth grade boy, because football, or something like that.

And nobody saw any red flags?

Lead Me Not Into Temptation

22 05 2018

Los Angeles

Stan Kroenke’s $2.3 billion palace has now swelled to $4.25 billion.

There’s the temptation to do this:

But, don’t worry for Stan.  Thanks to the Supreme Court a few weeks ago, the already increasing trajectory of the value of major pro sports franchises is about to to hit an inflection point.

Plain words, he’s got the financial leverage for this.

The other temptation, this case, for we St. Louisans, is to think that this is a big expensive bullet we dodged.  Because we want to think the north riverfront stadium would have had its own cost overruns.

Except, let’s head to the archipelago of last current years, find the 2015 island, and see what was one of my serial items of interest:  The Great Stadium Soap Opera of 2015.  If you were reading this space that year, then you’ll remember that I never thought the north riverfront stadium proposal was for real.  I always thought it was nothing more than public relations vaporware on the part of serious high level politicians and civic officials to advance what seemed to be a serious proposal and a preemptive chess move to what they all knew Kroenke was going to do, which was, and turned out to be, moving the Rams back to Los Angeles.  (Later, we found out he actually made that decision back in 2012.)  So, when Kroenke inevitably would do (and did) what everyone in the know knew he would (and did), it would seem for outward consumption he spurned a new stadium for which he would have only had to have paid about a third of the cost.  The chess board politics were that all the public anger over the move would have landed on Kroenke’s face, and certainly not local and statewide politicians and civic officials.
