I think the Repubs were in the wrong in 2016. Unfortunately for the Dems, two wrongs don't make a right... so it's still wrong now. The correct thing for the Dems to do-- is concede that Trump is allowed to make the nomination. And proceed with the confirmation process fair & square. But the Dems could also campaign like hell-- making the case that letting Trump win this-one shows the Dem's superior commitment to honorable, consistent fair-play: a reason to replace Trump & Republicans-- with Democrats. This strategy I've proposed-- would only work if the Dems actually were more virtuous. Unfortunately, they aren't.
I know that two wrongs etc and tu quoque fallacy apply, but it seems that the Dems have historically passed Repub noms whereas the converse has not been true. Virtue in politics seems to be a losing strategy.

The premise I attempted to examine-- was that the death of RGB is an opportunity for RGB's fans to bargain for favors from both prez candidates.

And-- RGB's fans are in a better position to extract concessions (by threatening to withhold support) from Biden-- than from Trump.

Do you have an opinion on that?

(i'll answer the question you asked-- in a separate comment.)
Sorry. I jumped on what I felt was the zeitgeist re RBG from some commentators here, rather than the specifics of your post.

Nothing immediately springs to mind. But Trump does seem willing to go-against conventional-republican-positions, for votes. So maybe-- he'll play sugar-daddy, given the right creative win-win sales pitch. Like when Kim Kardashian got the First Steps Act out of him. This would require lefty-progs to take a break from 24/7 vilifying Trump, to woo him a little. Which ain't gonna happen.

So, then: lean on Biden. I think Biden is waaay more ripe for picking. RBG's death is an opportunity for the Left to tell Biden that the URGENCY of all their pet issues just hit critical mass. Tell Biden he needs to stop dicking-around with empty-platitudes for the progressive lefty contingent, while making concrete backroom promises to his fatcat global-business & war-machine cronies...

Tell Biden: either he dances to the progressives' tune-- or he & his 'moderates' will be left waiting at the altar, on election day.

The Democrats would love to pack the SC, but first they need to stuff the ballot boxes.

1) Block routine purging of voter rolls, because: racism;

2) Whip up irrational fear of the plague to rationalize all voting by mail;

3) Push for ballots to be sent to every street address;

4) Fabricate fiction about Trump shutting down the Postal Service;

5) Push for ballot-harvesting, no signature checking, counting of 'naked' ballots;

8) Warn of "Red Mirage": apparent Trump EC landslide on election night, to be slowly whittled away as mail-in ballots counted;

9) Warn that Trump will refuse to leave office no matter what;

10) Threaten riots, secession, military coup if Biden not installed in WH.

Sounds legit to me.
Happening in plain sight, but then even the "rational" Democrat public like Coyne don't believe that there is any evidence that mass postal voting will lead to fraud. What looks obvious to anyone who consumes media from all factions is not so obvious to those who trust the big mass media companies and tech giants.

On an unrelated note, you might be interested, or horrified, at an incident that happened outside Port Elizabeth a few days ago. About 200 disgruntled stable hands assaulted a bunch of racehorses over a labour dispute. https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/fa ... september/. What actually happened is disputed with allegations of a cover up, nevertheless the incident is indicative of the lawlessness of South African society. Mob action, often brutal, is resorted to without waiting for legal processes. It is partly the fault of the rampant corruption in policing which ignores mob violence and looting when it suits. Whatever the merits of the grievances the brutality indulged in can be disturbing and doesn't bode well.

Making an apocalypse out of a pandemic

To varying degrees, political elites, screamed on by the media, have responded to the threat posed by this virus as if it is world-ending. As if it demands the complete reorganisation of social and economic life around the supreme principle of safety. As if there is no way back. They treat it not as a nasty virus that poses a significant but manageable health risk to certain sections of the populace. No, they treat it as a god-like judgement on the old structures of social life, now deemed, in the jargon of the day, unsafe and unsustainable.
This is what is unprecedented. Not the novel virus itself. But the panicked, fear-laden and, in some quarters, gleefully apocalyptic response.

[O]urs is not a confident moment. Born of the long-term moral depletion of liberal capitalism, the exhaustion of political ideology and the subsequent breakdown of social solidarities, it is moment characterised by a profound sense of powerlessness and disenchantment about our way of life. That so much of that way of life has been sacrificed over the past few months is a testament less to the virulence of Covid-19, than to the weakness of even our ruling elites’ support for it.

The R's are dancing in the street, thinking this will be a big win. Prior to this I thought this was starting to sound very 2016-ish. Now I think Ginsberg's death will reignite the left. American election results are always determined by voter turnout for an historically apathetic electorate. If Republicans can figure out a way to get a justice confirmed before Nov. 3 that impetus will be gone. I think the smarter ones realize it ain't gonna happen.

Remember, in the primary, Biden vowed that he will nominate an African-American Woman to the Supreme Court.

When asked whether he would provide a list of potential Supreme Court candidates (as candidate-Trump did in 2016)

Biden say he would not "follow anything the President does, because he usually does it all wrong." Which makes perfect sense.

My modest proposal probably acceptable to all sides:
1. Pension off all white police officers with a full pension no matter how long they have served.
2. Replace them with black police officers, properly trained in the usual fashion.

Perhaps a little less acceptable:
3. Stand back and watch what happens as black officers feel no racial compunction about use of deadly force.

Those already familiar with "colour revolutions" can skip this one. You have already noticed that events in the USA have similar parallels to Ukraine, Serbia, Hong Kong, etc. etc. and more recently Belarius.

Revolver Exclusive — Meet Norm Eisen: Legal Hatchet Man and Central Operative in the “Color Revolution” Against President Trump
There is no purer embodiment of Revolver’s thesis that the very same regime change professionals who run Color Revolutions on behalf of the US Government in order to undermine or overthrow alleged “authoritarian” governments overseas, are running the very same playbook to overturn Trump’s 2016 victory and to pre-empt a repeat in 2020. To put it simply, what you see is not just the same Color Revolution playbook run against Trump, but the same people using it against Trump who have employed it in a professional capacity against targets overseas—same people same playbook.
Anywho, if you want to read it (and you should even if you take the terms of art at face value), a free copy is here :

(no need to wonder why the likes of Egypt banned NGOs is there?)

Anyway, it is clear to me that you folks in the USA are in for some very interesting times going forward (so is Canukistan BTW but that is a topic for another day) .

Not like accidental leaks of pathogens never happens in China:

Several thousand people in northwest China have tested positive for a bacterial disease, authorities said on Tuesday, in an outbreak caused by a leak at a biopharmaceutical company last year.

I was looking for stories by Manly Wade Wellman on youtube. Why I'm not completely sure.

...however I found that someone had posted an entire audiobook of short stories - of which his was one and this was another.



Some say it was the basis for the movie 'Avatar'.

They would be a lot fewer people insisting on 'They' as a pronoun - if the Scandys hadn't screwed it up for everyone

Politifact. Approach with caution. Needs fact checking.

Battle has become somewhat better known, though. Ups and downs. An arrow in the eye here and there. These things happen.

C'est la vie (ou, peut être, c'est La Guerre, n'est pas?), as the Normans were wont to say.
I've been to Battle twice - but not to Senlac Hill.

If I recall correctly- the associated date is also useful for remembering lottery ticket numbers. But I can find no reference to this online - which makes me rather Glum.
I first went to Battle on our honeymoon. Came back in 2002 and then took the kids there in 2010. Lovely place.

And a perfect add-on to staying in Rye.

On Sept. 23, 1957, President Dwight Eisenhower signed an executive order sending troops from the Army's 101st Airborne Division to maintain order and peace during the integration of Central High School by nine black students in Little Rock, Arkansas, after Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus called in the state National Guard to bar black students from the school.

NY Times:
Columbia Marching Band Shuts Itself Down Over ‘Offensive Behavior’
The band admitted to “sexual misconduct, assault, theft, racism and injury to individuals and the Columbia community as a whole.”

In announcing its decision to disband, Columbia University’s marching band said it has had “a history riddled with offensive behavior.”

By Corey Kilgannon
Sept. 15, 2020

The Columbia University Marching Band, which dated to 1904, had developed a wide reputation over the years for its irreverent, quirky performances at Lions football and basketball games.
It had served as the irrepressible court jester to the university’s staid administration, and, at times, had offended students and the wider campus community with its jokes.
The band had an antagonistic relationship with the administration, which banned it from football games last year and tried to stamp out its mischievous tradition of bursting into a campus library each semester to entertain stressed-out students on the eve of finals.
But the latest news from the band was more startling. Its board announced on Monday that after 116 years of performing it was disbanding, citing “a history riddled with offensive behavior.”
The behavior did not pertain to its ongoing lampooning of university policies and officials but more serious self-levied charges — posted in a statement on the band’s Facebook page — that the band had long been rife with “sexual misconduct, assault, theft, racism and injury to individuals and the Columbia community as a whole.”

Mister President Trump-- Send in the 101st suckers and the Airborne losers, like when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor!

I love the smell of napalm in the Morningside Heights! This aggression will not stand!
