Tilting at windmills.
“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”
“Destiny guides our fortunes more favorably than we could have expected. Look there, Sancho Panza, my friend, and see those thirty or so wild giants, with whom I intend to do battle and kill each and all of them, so with their stolen booty we can begin to enrich ourselves. This is nobel, righteous warfare, for it is wonderfully useful to God to have such an evil race wiped from the face of the earth.”
“What giants?” Asked Sancho Panza.
“The ones you can see over there,” answered his master, “with the huge arms, some of which are very nearly two leagues long.”
“Now look, your grace,” said Sancho, “what you see over there aren’t giants, but windmills, and what seems to be arms are just their sails, that go around in the wind and turn the millstone.”
Could Slow Joe Biden be Replaced by a Hologram?
We all know that Joe — on a good day — is able to read what his handlers write for him to read on his teleprompter. On a bad day, he can’t even do that. We’ve only seen him primarily in the form of various “proof of life”-like video clips distributed on the internet.
BUT WAIT, there are brave new world of possibilities offered by technological advancements and the unprecedented control over information on the Internet. Enter the realm of deep fake technology. Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) computer technology has put special effects, once reserved as expensive and time-consuming accomplishments of Hollywood films, in the hands of anybody with a computer and the desire to use it.
A.I. technology can make people who didn’t say or do something look very much like they said or did the thing. I urge everyone to watch the story here and keep in mind two things: First, the technology has advanced further by leaps and bounds since this report. And, second, our intelligence agencies have capabilities far beyond whatever it is we see in public.
But would you really want a Biden android or Biden simulation? Couldn’t we find a better artificial face to put on our “leader”?
Green Zone/Red Zone
One thing is certain, these exclusion zones in the US Capitol will only grow larger as the perimeter is expanded to provide more security from those dangerous white people.
Norway Holds the Line
(link) OSLO/LONDON, March 9 (Reuters) – Norway has suspended a planned asset sale by engine maker Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc to a Russian-controlled company as it assesses the security implications for the country’s navy, the justice ministry said on Tuesday.
Norway’s NSM security agency is assessing the 150 million-euro ($178 million) sale of Bergen Engines to a company controlled by Russia’s TMH Group, the ministry said.
While the US edges toward communism, and as American leaders spout the same drivel as leaders in Communist China and Russia do, the Norwegians are concerned – and act concerned. (h/t Claudio)

The Ring of Fire
Johnny Cash sang about it — maybe. The point is that all of these volcanoes have been found by the progressive left to have no impact on global warming or cooling. If they do, a tax will fix it.
Americas have changed to Corpse and Whore. But the map doesn’t reflect that. Pity.
A tactical nuclear weapon fired from a recoilless rifle mounted on a Jeep. Park it in the garage against the day when you needed it, right?
Facebook goes to War!
The title of the book is, “The Old Whore“. I did put up a Facebook page on it years ago. I have now been advised that the title is offensive to whores and it must be removed. No, you can’t make this up. Is it because I call the whore “old”?
The book is not about the sitting vice president of the United States (though if the shoe fits…) so Facebook shouldn’t be so unsettled by it.
