    Did Biden realize his discriminatory pledge for his Supreme Court pick?

    BY JONATHAN TURLEY, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR

    Joe Biden made two pledges to voters and asked his opponent to do the same to nominate only a black woman for the next open Supreme Court seat and to choose a woman as his vice president. Even with identity politics, the pledge to impose a gender and race requirement for the next Supreme Court nominee is as ironic as it is troubling. What Biden was declaring, and what Sanders wisely avoided, would effectively constitute discrimination in admission to the Supreme Court. Indeed, the Supreme Court has declared that such race or gender conditions are strictly unconstitutional for admission to public colleges.

    The pledges that Biden has made amount to this. No matter how qualified men or, in the case of the Supreme Court, women who are not black may be, he will not consider them as candidates. In the case of vice president, such gender discrimination would be allowed, as presidential candidates can select a running mate on any grounds and voters can decide if they approve. Justices, however, are lifetime appointees, and presidents have always been careful to state that, while they seek diversity among their nominees, they would appoint the most qualified person regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. But in a single declaration, Biden quickly dispensed with even the pretense of equal consideration.

    House Democrats Propose Lifting Tariffs On Chinese Imports, Rewarding China for Downplaying Wuhan Virus

    A leading House Democrat is suggesting that we end tariffs on Chinese imports amid the spread of Wuhan Virus , essentially rewarding the Chinese for their secretive and problematic handling of the virus that is quickly spreading to all corners of the globe.

    Florida Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy, whose husband manufactures sportswear in Chinese factories according to an article by The Hill, could potentially benefit from such a move. The proposed legislation is co-sponsored by Democrat Joe Cunningham of South Carolina. Murphy also owns a patent on one of the products manufactured by her husband.

    Can you tell me what happens to hand sanitiser 70% alcohol in the car.

    Helen – So long as it doesn’t get too hot it should be fine. The ethanol is the main antiviral agent in it.

    But in a climate like yours a plastic bottle of ethanol could easily get so hot it explodes because of high vapour pressure. The boiling point of ethanol is only 78 C. In the sun a plastic bottle in a car could get to that temperature. And even at only 50 C the pressure in the bottle from the ethanol vapour pressure would be very high.

    Hand sanitizer comprised of isopropyl alcohol isn’t much better as its boiling point is 82 C.

    Make sure any hand sanitizer bottles aren’t in the direct sun.

    President Trump Invokes Defense Production Act – Initiates Executive Order For Health And Medical Resources

    The three main components of the Defense Production Act include:

    ♦ Companies are required to accept and prioritize contracts from the government and to prioritize “materials, services, and facilities to promote the national defense or to maximize domestic energy supplies.” While this provision has historically been used to ramp up military production, in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic the act will be used for medical supplies.

    ♦ The second provision in the act provides financial measures, such as loans, loan guarantees, purchases, and purchase commitments, to speed up the production of materials “needed to support national defense and homeland security procurement requirements.”

    ♦ The act also addresses voluntary agreements – or what the government says is “an association of private interests, approved by the Government to plan and coordinate actions in support of the national defense.” The proviso permits business competitors to work together to plan and coordinate measures to increase the supply of materials as directed by the U.S. government.

    Immediately after invoking the act, President Trump signed an executive order to prioritize Health and Medical resources (masks, respirators, medical equipment).

    Most would have helipads so the ones requiring ICU level care could be airlifted out.

    China has systematically lied and acted with duplicity. It cannot be trusted and I hope that China will be permanently rebranded and recalibrated by the world at large when this is over – that China’s trading partners will trust it far less to honour any commitments or to abide by any international agreements. Supply chains were changing before the epidemic and I hope will continue to be diversified and redirected even more afterward.

    Many on the Cat have been warning of Chinese malevolence for years. We have noted the Chinese behaviour in the South China sea, the Antarctic, the debt traps, the one million person re-education camps for Uyghur Moosilims and the internal Orwellian-like surveillance. These and dozens more incidents and issues.

    These actions by China are not aberrations – they are characteristic.

    If, in a couple of years we return to the ‘business as usual’ model and welcome China back to their former social and financial intimacy with Australia, we might as well just hand over the keys.

    I know things could change, but at this stage we will have to close hospitals from boredom.

    Most ICU patients in the next 12 months will be drug overdoses and failed suicides because we deliberately tanked the economy.

    Joe Biden, the Manchurian Virus Candidate

    it’s not just that no matter what President Trump does, the EneMedia will portray his response to the disease as lacking. (Never mind that Barack Obama apparently spread disease throughout our nation by shipping sick illegal-alien minors throughout the country. Enterovirus D68, anyone?)

    It’s also that the Wuhan virus has now become a handy excuse to limit debates and Jumblin Joe’s personal appearances. Health is the concern, you see (Biden’s mental health, that is).

    There’s a reason why Forbes wrote last summer that “Joe Biden Is The Only Man Who Can Save China In 2020” and why the “announcement of his campaign alone was enough to encourage Beijing suddenly to take a harder line on trade negotiations with the Trump administration,”

    (Biden) is now infamous for threatening to assault voters, he and other free “traiders” have long been helping China assault us.

    So, the main problem with Biden isn’t that he doesn’t know what state he’s in, but that he doesn’t know what nation state he represents. Combine this with his rapid mental decline, and one could imagine learning after a Beijing visit that President Biden signed Alaska away to Xi. (“I thought the document just got another billion for sonny boy!”)

    Well stated. Please be advised that the police will soon visit you for posting correct details critical of the Chinese oligarchy.

    BTW, it is not just the governments that need to change their attitude it is the boardrooms. People praise China for lifting so many out of poverty while ignoring that multinationals saw a huge opportunity to cash in because of low labour costs, non-existent environmental laws, worker protection, and social welfare thereby by ensuring they could massively increase profits by having stuff made in China then sold to the Westerners who once worked in their factories, paid taxes, and had a chance to finding a good manufacturing job for themselves and their children.

    “Total cases: 7,038” is incorrect and to say so only hyper-inflates the severity of this. That number includes presumptive positives. There are only 545 confirmed cases in the US as of today. Please correct your information.

  50. Struth

    To calculate the burden of 2009 pandemic influenza A (pH1N1) in the United States, we extrapolated from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Emerging Infections Program laboratory-confirmed hospitalizations across the entire United States, and then corrected for under reporting. From 12 April 2009 to 10 April 2010, we estimate that approximately 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (8868-18,306) occurred in the United States due to pH1N1. Eighty-seven percent of deaths occurred in those under 65 years of age with children and working adults having risks of hospitalization and death 4 to 7 times and 8 to 12 times greater, respectively, than estimates of impact due to seasonal influenza covering the years 1976-2001. In our study, adults 65 years of age or older were found to have rates of hospitalization and death that were up to 75% and 81%, respectively, lower than seasonal influenza. These results confirm the necessity of a concerted public health response to pH1N1.

    I thought this comment interesting.

    Everyone keep reporting back with ground level reports.

    Since the general public has the attention span of a gnat,
    by the end of the week, I think perceptions will be beginning
    to change. I’m already hearing begrudging support of Trump’s
    policies from black co workers. Already hearing grumpling
    about how “stupid” shutting down everything is from my waitress
    working, Trump hating daughter. The dam is starting to have
    some cracks.

    People are being separated from their facetime propagandists.
    Especially gen x ers and millenials. No bitching about Trump with
    their friends at Starbucks. It’s drive through only. No indoctrination
    at the middle school, high school, and college by their instructors
    and professors. They are all closed.

    That overbearing kid at the dorm who controls the discussion,
    pushes Bernie and socialism 24/7? Back home with his parents.

    That Trump hating feminist that ties every and all things evil to
    men and Trump? Back home.

    I hate all that is happening with businesses closing, people not
    congregating. But we have an opportunity here.

    If the bubble isn’t occupied, and air isn’t being pumped into it
    it collapses. The narrative bubble relies on mighty support from
    the MSM, the education crowd, the SJW crowd. Among the non
    and underemployed ( college kids, service industry millenials)
    the education crowd and SJW crowd are being removed from
    their midst.

    And, they don’t watch TV. They don’t watch CNN, MSNBC.
    Or even network sitcoms. A 46 inch tv sits in the family room,
    gathering dust. My millenial kids only use it to game on. No
    networks shows. No cable shows. A little Netflix. Some anime.

    The millenials have time on their hands. Time to think. Without
    anybody around them telling them what is good and bad.
    I’m praying REAL hard about this time, and hoping they’ll use
    it wisely.

    Sounds like the SA government talking about relaxing shopping hour restrictions for the same reason. Now we are in a situation where they are closing shops early!

    This is the first thing they should have done: just gotten rid of all these unnecessarily regulations which slow down the supply chaing. They would still have the safety and compliance regs to make sure they are not overworking drivers etc and encouraging accidents. Sure that won’t have solved everything in this just-in-time world but nimble players would have adjusted to that as well – modern inventory and supply chain systems are fully automated so you can even redirect trucks on the road if you need to and/or buy up warehousing services.

    Full RBA summary.

    • Cutting its target cash rate to 0.25 per cent to encourage banks to further drop borrowing rates for businesses and households;
    • Commencing purchases of Australian government bonds to maintain a 3 year government bond yield of only 0.25 per cent, and to also support the liquidity of that market, which Governor Lowe said has become “impaired”. This will reduce the cost of longer-term, fixed-rate (as opposed to floating-rate) business and household loans that partly price off the 3 year government bond yield;
    Offering banks a longer-term funding facility of at least $90 billion on a 3 year basis at an ultra-cheap cost of just 0.25 per cent;
    • Working with the AOFM to launch an AOFM-managed $15 billion direct investment program in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and asset-backed securities (ABS). I have suggested at least $50 billion. This will further reduce the cost of borrowing for small business, households, and individuals via the AOFM funding highly rated and securitised pools of these assets at a cost, or spread, that is normalised. That is, not at current costs, which are enormously distorted by the virus-induced volatility.
    • Continue to offer very cheap secured term funding to banks of up to 6 months or more at a cost of about 30 basis points (or 0.3 per cent) above the cash rate via the RBA’s existing repurchase (or repo) arrangements.

    I’ve cut & paste from the Chris Joye article.

    6 men a day commit suicide.

    More than that.

    The number of male suicides rose from 1,785 in 2009 to 2,320 in 2018 with an average of 8 Australians a day taking their own lives, six men and two women.

    The Australian Men’s Health Forum, the peak body for men’s health, has called for a national action plan to prevent male suicide.

    https://www.amhf.org.au/call_for_action_as_male_suicide_up_30_in_a_decade

    The above is the official stat. It may well be higher because of occult suicides but then we are in guessing territory. The official figures are bad enough and I think the real rate will not be much higher because suicide is now documented much more thoroughly than in the past.

    Bussers, HB. They got to have somewhere to stash all the groceries they just bought.

    The days of putting on a diamanté G string

    I saw a vid of a dude putting on a g-string around his stupid face/head as a mask. It looked like it could work.

    Are JC and M0nty going out for bat soup?

    With the best bounce, for the next few years Australia will be a shot economy, swimming with struggling industries and undead businesses propped up with public money. Top Government priority will be getting unemployment down and recovering control of the massive emergency spending.

    Second top priority will be protecting the public sector and all its works from fear and loathing in the general community.

    Will be an acid test of how committed the political class is to unaccountable spending sprees, doubling the price of electricity by subsidising windmills, deadhand regulation, and redistributing shrunken wealth into progressive social programs.

    Enjoying your newfound ease in moving around Sydney (and other major cities), with everyone getting a seat on public transport and the roads actually flowing?
    This is what we could have had if not for Big Australia migration, over-population and congestion.
    Tragic, really.

    Yep. All the staff talking about how easy it is to zoom around the city.

    Only other people on the road are the mighty Sikh delivery boys, keeping the town running.

    God bless them.

    This one’s for connoisseurs of good Scotch on the Cat – Glenrothes make a pretty good Speyside single malt – matured in sherry seasoned casks, and $80 a bottle, as opposed to a hundred for most other Speysides. Decent drop.

    Am officially in your debt. If I have whisky and chocolate (and I have plenty of both) then food becomes irrelevant. Not toilet paper, that’s never irrelevant.

    I was just told trade in the Aussie 10 year bond was halted earlier today.
    It was a flash crash of sorts.
    Well done RBA.

    So society’s *real* key workers have just been revealed.

    Not the bankers. Not the traders. Not the elite hedge fund managers.

    It’s the nurses. The doctors. The delivery drivers. The carers. The porters. The teachers. The shelf stackers. The check out staff.

    I haven’t gone up-screen today. Can someone tell me if Porterloo has been bawling about me and stimson today. I noticed yesterday he was babbling about me and stimson making him cry. I have no idea what Stimson did though.

  203. Farmer Gez

    Pssst….I heard a rumour.
    They reckon the Chicoms engineered the COVID-19 escape to dump the markets, buy back in at the bottom and get a huge grip on the majors worldwide.
    It’s doing the rounds.

  204. 🤙
    Thanks JC. I’ll pass that along to my nervous investment clients…
    My intuition agrees with that kind of strategy.
    A second chance @Sydney Airport?
    Buying in, years later, from Cats spruiking their/your foresight BITD, at a substantially lower price?
    Priceless.

    Unlikely. But now with free time on its hands, The Immigration Department could use it wisely and focus on strategies to weed out the type of migrants the Australian people don’t want. The fancies of politicians and noisy opportunists should be discounted entirely.

    So basically, they’re doing to the world economy what they are doing to regional supermarkets around Australia. Makes sense.

    A total and comprehensive ban on immigration will be in force from tomorrow evening 9pm Sydney time.

    I’d wager migrants in the queu have been advised normal service will resume when the virus crisis passes.

    We are learning which jobs are essential in society, and which should be abolished forever!

    We are? Which ones. Name a few.

    Fisky, you really shouldn’t comment about this shit after suggesting we should hire Emily from the HR department of Human Services to be the new QAN CEO after its nationalized.

  214. Old School Conservative

    Some creative thinking.

    Mr Joyce said Woolworths boss Brad Banducci had contacted him to see if Qantas hosties could work in customer service and baggage handlers could stock shelves until the airline was back in the air.

    Let’s get Emily, who works in HR at Aboriginal Hostels Limited, which is a government agency to run Qantas.

    Possibly bred from a strain of coronavirus recently circulating around the world- explaining the high proportion of those exposed to the virus in the present epidemic who appear to have natural immunity.
    Plausible, but highly unlikely.

    Well, this is the gang who put 1-2 million people in concentration camps, harvests their organs (we know this is true, because in no other country can you book an organ transplant within a few days – impossible!), destroyed the rule of law in HK, and threatens to nuke Taiwan.

    I’m sure they would never crash the world economy on purpose! Impossible.

    I would need to find it but I’m fairly sure that Federal legislation compels manufacturers to supply parts for a period of 10 years after they cease to supply a particular model (or make) in Australia.

    Immigrants arrive here with residence visas – meaning they will be let in – so there will be no such ban unless you can provide documentary evidence otherwise.

    Somewhere in the world there are keen readers of Tom Clancy novels.

    Debt of Honour started with a cabal of Japanese businessmen and nationalists engineering a stock market meltdown, and ended with a 747 being flown into the Capitol building. Executive Orders and Rainbow Six both involved using viruses as a means to destroy the US (Executive Orders) or depopulate the world to save the environment (Rainbow Six).

    Let’s hope no-one gets bright ideas about Red Storm Rising or The Bear and the Dragon!

    Don’t be paranoid JC.

    Porterloo, you crying yesterday because Stimson and I were “nasty” to you.

    I haven’t mentioned you once today.

    Dunno about that because I haven’t checked and wouldn’t believe a fucking thing claimed because you’re quite dishonest. But as I said, your tearful comment was left here yesterday.

    But I notice that I live inside your head. Might explain the smell.

    Na, kind of looks like the other around from yesterday’s comment. Man-up and stop crying, you big girl.

    I can’t see the hosties lining up for this type of work.

    The big question is:
    Are there enough jobs in the Woolworths deli for all the Qantas mincers?
