The Science of Genetic Manipulation

&

Human Engineering

Fox News host Tucker Carlson once again dipped his toes in Google’s funded genetic research last night, suggesting that the scientific community is currently contemplating “human engineering.” The interesting thing about these conspirators is that they’re on YouTube, bragging.

Since the greatest threat to the world is global warming (the weather), one reaction might be creating a race of dwarves who use fewer resources. I wish that I was joking.

S. Matthew Liao, a professor of philosophy and bioethics at New York University was presented on Fox News, discussing biomedical modifications to humans, particularly with regard to combating climate change. Liao proposed the potential use of genetic engineering and hormone therapy that could result in birthing smaller, less resource-needy children. Apparently, Google thinks that it’s a good idea too.

Who are these people?

 

Arizona Voting Bill

(Link) The Arizona Senate is not only auditing Maricopa County’s election results to review the 2020 results, but it has now passed a new election integrity bill that will have tighter security in forthcoming elections. The bill would refer voters to the state AG for voter fraud investigation if they chose not to cure their ballot if it’s flagged for a signature mismatch. The bill has passed the Senate 31-29 and goes to the House.

The election bill SB 1241 will require such signature verification on ballots, as well as other security measures. You can read about it at the link above if you’re interested. The Democrats oppose the election integrity bill. Oh, I wonder why? Imagine a world where one voter gets one. vote.

Correctly Identify the Car Rifle

I realize that many readers don’t carry a rifle with them in their Chevy, and I’m not saying that they should. These things are individual decisions.

The choice of carry is subjective. Having a scoped rifle does offer tactical advantages, but is difficult to conceal. You just sling it when you’re in Safeway picking out rutabagas.

 

Identify the Aircraft

Full disclosure, this is a replica of an original that you’re asked to identify. The gun port is above the propellor. One common complaint by pilots of this aircraft was that because of the placement of the guns,  they could not clear the jams that occurred.

 

Political Prisoner Update

(link) January 6, political detainees in the D.C. Detention Center are being forced to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to avoid further terrible conditions and torture. If you take the shot,  they let you out of the hole. If not, lockdown continues.

As several publications have reported, American citizens are being held in deplorable conditions in the D.C. Detention Center for minor offenses linked to the events at the Capitol on January 6, conditions that have been compared to those at Guantanamo Bay. The question of entrapment looms large as current disclosures show that many if not all of them were set up by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, detainees were alleged to have been confined alone in their cells for 23 hours a day, sometimes with a single cellmate, for over 400 days with no outside time. Inmates were only allowed one hour to shower or engage in non-cell activities, Washington Post reported.

The jail’s conditions have been severely criticized and condemned. Inmates were not allowed to shave, trim their toenails, or get haircuts; instead, they were given a chemical hair remover, which many were unable or reluctant to use owing to skin irritation. Inmates were not allowed to see their lawyers or relatives, and they could only communicate with them online or over the phone. They were denied access to any library services, leaving them with no reading material to occupy their time while detained. Because all court processes have been slowed, many inmates’ trial dates have been pushed back weeks or even months. Lawyers for inmates have expressed concerns about their clients’ mental health, Daily Mail reported.

“Since his arrest, Ryan Samsel has been held in Washington DC. On March 21, he was awakened by correctional officers, his hands zip-tied, then walked to an unoccupied cell and brutally beaten by the officers. Then Ryan Samsel lost an eye in the beating,” reported Gateway Pundit.

    • Larry. I used to read the Biggles books when I was a kid. They featured aircraft such as the Pfalz DII, the Fokker Triplane, the Sopwith Camel, the Se5A, and the Nieuport amongst many others. Used to make plastic models of them too, from Airfix kits, and hang them from my bedroom ceiling.

  1. All interesting.

    I remember when a lot of people had rifles in gun racks in the back of their trucks and you didn’t think anything of it or worry about them being stolen.

  2. My guess would be SIG. Tried to go to Sigarms website to see if I was right and got this–

    What scope is that?

    Any interference with the seat belts?

  3. Political Prisoners.

    Every day the U.S. becomes more like the old Soviet Union. Turns out “Tail-Gunner Joe” was right.

  4. Arizona voting law.
    Since Arizona has a GOP Governor and a GOP two seat majority in the House, that bill has a chance to become law.

    The (P)regressives are in a snit First, the 2nd Amendment and now the various states exercising the 10th Amendment. Where will it end?

  5. > Who are these people?

    Ah, you middle class people. You are willing to get on boxcars before giving up your religious faith that any evil people who might exist are few and far away in time and distance, and easily identified by the white cat and volcano lair. What Orwell named doublethink is more usefully identified as method acting, a mental technique to make the external presentation of a lie more consistent and thus more convincing.

  6. “Human Engineering”…….Oh, boy…..Get ready for the Eugenics Wars. Kahn….Calling Mr. Kahn….”Botany Bay” is ready for boarding now….

    GO AZ! We need something like that here in CO.

    Never felt the need (yet….) to carry a rifle in the car. Shotgun, sure, but not a rifle. Guess I’m still thinking in “City Mode”, where reaching out and touching someone is only a matter of yards. And for beyong that, slugs.

    The political prisoners sound like they’re being held in abominable conditions. Way worse than even the SuperMax dudes.

  7. We used to gin up some home-brewed “carbine” matches that occasionally included pistol transitions, before 3-gun became a thing and rendered our little program obsolete. A variety of scenarios were run with distances varying from 3 feet to 300-yards, on IPSC targets and on the clock with very short time limits and always with magazine changes. We worked hard at never repeating a scenario. There were two classes. Iron sights/red dots, and scope up to 4 power.

    The scope users almost always scored higher than the irons/dot users. It was usually not even close. And we could not imagineer any scenario where any of us would have felt better armed with a shotgun than a carbine. Your mileage, it may vary.
