What you can expect from those 200,000 acres that bill gates bought -

The study also shows that AGRA in fact harms small-scale food producers, for example by subjecting them to high levels of debt. In Zambia and Tanzania, small-scale food producers were unable to repay the loans for fertilizer and hybrid seeds after the first harvest. AGRA projects also restrict the freedom of choice for small-scale food producers to decide for themselves what they want to grow. This has dramatic effects on crop diversity. AGRA’s focus is on the one-sided cultivation of maize. Traditional climate-resistant and nutrient-rich crops have thus declined. According to the study, millet production fell by 24 percent in the 13 AGRA focus countries from 2006 to 2018. Moreover, AGRA lobbies governments on behalf of agricultural corporations to pass legislation that will benefit fertilizer producers and seed companies instead of strengthening small-scale food production and alternative structures. Indeed, it is being courted by governments worldwide for precisely this service.

The publishers of the study conclude, among other things, that governments in the Global North and Global South must withdraw from AGRA and all other Green Revolution programmes. Instead, they should support more sustainable, holistic approaches such as agroecology. Agroecology focuses on the needs of small-scale food producers, their human right to food, and their food sovereignty.

I'm still waiting for an answer to this q:

"I have no particular love for Estonian or Hungarian, but if I were to move to Estonia or Hungary I'd expect to learn the language first. Is that too much to expect of an immigrant?"

Paul Emery

Do you have any updates Don about whether same sex marriage is unconstitutional?

George Rebane

PaulE 959am - I remember asking that question first.

Gregory - That Hungarians share a Finno-Ugric language with Estonians did not enter my mind in the context of the rights to retain and perpetuate any given ethnicity. I was struck by Orban’s straightforward answers when interviewed.

Barry Pruett

Gregory: When I lived in Moscow, I should have demanded all the documents that I received from the government in English and not in Russian. I am totally positive that Comrade Yeltsin would have gotten right on that one! LOL.

Paul Emery

George And how about his comments a week earlier that

“We [Hungarians] are not a mixed race … and we do not want to become a mixed race,” said Orbán on Saturday. He added that countries where European and non-Europeans mingle were “no longer nations”.

Paul Emery

My point is George is that this direct quote from Orbán is an indication as to how low the Republicans have stooped to find a hero. "We no longer want to become a mixed race" Direct quote from Orbán. So what does that mean? No interracial marriages and children? Can you explain that George? Also do conservatives oppose same sex marriages? I thought we were a free country and that conservatives support personal freedom. How do same sex marriages affect anybody's personal freedom?

Scott O

Paul - "No interracial marriages and children? Can you explain that George? Also do conservatives oppose same sex marriages? I thought we were a free country and that conservatives support personal freedom. How do same sex marriages affect anybody's personal freedom?"
So - what are you saying you are for, Paul?

“Yeah, cause only the wealthy buy that natural gas stuff.” True dat.

If you think Robert X’sshaking his fist and yelling at the sky last winter over ‘$50 a day!’ for hauling in propane or gas for the gennie last winter during the prolonged outage for some people (not me), next winter 50 bucks a day will seem like a bargain.

What? Still on the grid? Bad Roberta, Bad.

Scott O, I got it all figured out. Since the sun don’t shine at night when you need electricity the most, I got it solved. Wind. Yep, wind power. Someone should come up with one of those propeller caps like in the Beanie and Cecil cartoons back in the day. Wire it up to create wind power enough to heat your electric blanket in the cold stormy winter nights. That someone is me. Problem solved.

The sun may not shine during the most foulest weather on a freezing ash winter’s night, but the wind is huffing and puffing and howling like it’s going to blow the place down. Plenty of wind power to be harnessed.

Haven’t worked out all the kinks yet, but it shows promise. 50 bucks a night? Ha!

1) The good thing is it will not cost much in upfront costs and will definitely heat your electric blanket all night long.
2) The downside is you have to sleep outdoors wearing your propeller hat. Kinda throws a wet blanket on the idea. The Matrix is not perfect.

BTW, when I was a kid, only the two rich fat spoiled kids in the area had their parents buy them the Beanie Propeller Hat. And to top that off, we did not have TV, so no Beanie and Cecil cartoons for me. I still check the boxes for double whammy victimhood grievous grievance(s).

Hmm. Now we are getting somewhere in understanding The Problem.

C. S. Lewis once noted: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Punchy.
Many moons ago, I listened to a guy who was very upset. His cat whom he loved terribly had died. He told his roommate about the cat and the roommate did not appear upset or devastated like the guy was. So, he kicked his roommate out.

I told the grieving man that “It is an unreasonable request to expect another to feel the same way about your cat that you do.” He never talked to me again either.

Paul E, it is an u reasonable request to demand others to feel the same way as you do about Trump, local outdoor party noise ordinances, gay marriage, organized religion, Orban the Hungarian, guns, abortion, voter ID, public education, sodomy, shows in Sacramento, a ‘Go Back to Berkeley You Stink-Asses” sign someone slapped on a stop sign in Nevada City, or someone flying a Confederate flag in their front lawn in the very special Historical District one score and five years ago, aka, a quarter century under the bridge.

It is an unreasonable request to pester readers here to not only agree with you on every issue/event that grabs your attention, but to feel as you do about any topic under the sun….not to mention publicly denounce that which you denounce and call despicable.

The political news of the day is the passage of the shove-it-down-your-throat absurdity of the Inflation Reduction Act. What this country needs is a vastly expanded Internal Revenue Service! (said no sane person ever).

There is much more to be said and much more to come. I leave the subject this morning with the true question posed by the Inflation Reduction Act. Is the Democrats’ profound faith in the stupidity of the American people inflated or will it be vindicated in the midterm elections at which the bill is aimed?

The republicans really know how to pick them. Trumps guy Herschel walker was a great football player but he's a sad human being. Check out the video on this add which is his ex wife talking about his violence towards her.

The ad shows excerpts of past interviews where Cindy DeAngelis Grossman accuses Walker of possessing "guns and knives," choking her, and holding a gun to her head.

"He held the gun to my temple and said he was gonna blow my brains out," Grossman says in the ad.

Walker had stated in the past that he suffers from a mental health condition called dissociative identity disorder, a condition that was formerly labeled as a split personality.

‘Progressives Trot out a Tired, Old Soros Trope to Smear Marco Rubio’

“Whenever a conservative criticizes Soros or points out the numerous political efforts of which he has been a part, progressives respond by pretending it’s an expression of anti-Semitism. That’s right; since Soros is Jewish, the left pretends he somehow represents all of Jewry–therefore, attacking him is attacking all Jews.

The left has been employing this trope for years. But in the latest episode of “Everyone Who Criticizes Soros Hates Jews,” Democrats went after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), after he posted a tweet about Democrats shutting down a bill that would compel “Soros backed prosecutors” to actually do their jobs. “The democrats just blocked my effort to try & force Soros backed prosecutors to put dangerous criminals in jail,” Rubio tweeted.”

‘I apologize for my white baby’
How can I extol the virtues of anti-racism while birthing another white person?

“I’m here to apologize to my brothers and sisters of color — my white daughter’s pale skin has brought me nothing but shame. I have failed as an ally.

For if whiteness is the root cause of systemic racism, then what does that make me for having a white child? How can I extol the virtues of anti-racism and dismantle white supremacy while simultaneously birthing another white person? These two seem incompatible. If I were truly honoring my commitment to decolonizing white spaces, I would have had my tubes tied or had myself euthanized and done the BIPOC community and the planet a favor. I’m such a coward.

My therapists will have their work cut out for them this week. “Love is love,” unless you fall in love with a cishet white male. Then love isn’t love — it’s white privilege.”

The Revolution has begun….

"Revolution Has Begun": 75,000 Brits To Stop Paying Power Bills Amid Inflation Storm

Last week, the UK government slammed the movement, calling it "highly irresponsible."

"This is highly irresponsible messaging, which ultimately will only push up prices for everyone else and affect personal credit ratings," a government spokesperson was quoted by The Independent.

Don't Pay UK believes 6.3 million UK households will be pushed into power bill poverty this winter, with millions more feeling the stress of out-of-control inflation.

People on Twitter responded to the moment by saying, "the Revolution has begun" and "a bit of civil unrest on its way onto our streets & rightly so."

Perhaps the movement's involvement will be an excellent proxy for the growing discontent festering among Brits that could result in civil unrest this winter as millions will struggle with keeping the lights on, the furnace hot, and putting food on the table. “

The joys of creepy grampa joes economy destroying agenda -

The Federal Reserve has another problem on its hands as companies put another quarter in the books amid sky-high inflation: falling productivity.

U.S. non-farm labor productivity, as measured by the Labor Department, fell in the second quarter at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 4.6%. That was the biggest year-over-year drop dating back to 1947 and the weakest back-to-back reading following a 7.7% drop in the first quarter, according to the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE).

Meanwhile, employers spent more on wages and benefits. Analysis by Wells Fargo highlighted that unit labor costs (ULC) — the cost of labor adjusted for productivity — grew at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 10.8% in the second quarter.

"This marks the second consecutive quarter of double-digit gains and suggests businesses continued to pay workers more to produce less," Wells Fargo economists Sarah House and Shannon Seery explained in the report.

‘IRS Commissioner Says Agency Is ‘Absolutely Not’ Increasing Audit Scrutiny on Small Businesses, Middle-Income Americans’

FROM ZERO TO NERO
In their own way President Biden’s White House minders must be just about as far gone as he is. With the announcement that Consumer Price Index had declined year-over-year from 9.1 percent to 8.5 percent, they thought it made sense to push the line that the numbers reflect “zero inflation last month” (i.e., on a month to month basis). The Bureau of Labor Statistics data are compiled here (home page) and here (latest numbers).

Biden himself pushed it in remarks posted here. Vice President Kamala Harris pushed it in remarks elsewhere, as did White House CEA member Jared Bernstein. This was the line of the day.

The whole thing put me in mind of Leo Strauss’s observation regarding modern political science: “Only a great fool would call the new political science diabolic: it has no attributes peculiar to fallen angels. It is not even Machiavellian, for Machiavelli’s teaching was graceful, subtle, and colorful. Nor is it Neronian. Nevertheless one may say of it that it fiddles while Rome burns. It is excused by two facts: it does not know that it fiddles, and it does not know that Rome burns.”

THE OMAR OMEN
“With every advantage in the race, Ilhan Omar narrowly emerged as the winner of Minnesota’s Fifth District (Minneapolis and inner ring suburbs) DFL primary yesterday. She defeated challenger Don Samuels by 2,500 votes out of nearly 113,000 votes cast (2.1 percent). I don’t think anyone other than Samuels and his supporters anticipated a race this close.”

“Covering the special endorsing convention that Sunday, I saw that the party activists who endorsed Omar were among the woke left successors of “every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, ‘Nature Cure’ quack, pacifist, and feminist” identified by Orwell as the fans of Socialism and Communism in England. They make up Omar’s base, and it is substantial base, but she is not invulnerable.

However, she is untouchable by law enforcement and by the media. She operates in the confidence that the rules do not apply to her. One of the luckiest people in the world, she expertly plays the victim card. Her hubris may bring her down before any political opponent does the job for her.”

Sure, in Omar’s district (like AOC’s district) is so blue that whoever wins the Dem primary wants the seat. But….there is a change in the wind as Mary Poppins would say.
BTW, crime is up 57% in AOC’s district.

I ASSUME A CUSHY MSNBC GIG WILL EASE THE PAIN: New Poll Shows Liz Cheney Getting Absolutely Crushed.

Liz Cheney’s liability in Wyoming is her carpetbagger status. WY may have been her daddy’s home, her grandpappy’s home, and her great grandpappy’s home, but Liz is not from WYoming. Carpetbagger.

Second, with sheer huge size of the State with the cleanest coal in the world along side vast cattle herds (beef industry)p, minerals, gas, and oil deposits, the voters of Wyoming are asking themselves p, “What has Liz ever done for Wyoming? A fair question which she has no answer for.

Byron York
‘Is Liz Cheney toast?’

“Cheney's family roots in Wyoming go back generations. But, as CNN noted in 2013, Cheney herself "was born in Wisconsin and grew up in Virginia's DC suburbs before attending college in Colorado and law school in Illinois ... She spent most of her career working in the nation's capital before moving to Wyoming last year."

The accusation that Cheney is a carpetbagger arose in 2012 when, 46 years old and living in Virginia, she bought a house in Wyoming. The house, in Wilson, "a posh enclave a few miles west of Jackson," in the words of the Associated Press, was listed for $1.9 million. "She lives in Virginia but lately has been showing up at Republican events around Wyoming," AP reported. "While Liz Cheney would be unlikely to take on any member of the all-Republican and safely popular Wyoming congressional delegation, the visits have led to speculation she has an eye on office."

It turned out the AP was wrong. Cheney did intend to take on a member of the all-Republican and safely popular Wyoming congressional delegation, GOP Sen. Mike Enzi. In July 2013, Cheney announced her candidacy for Enzi's seat, which Enzi very much intended to keep. Cheney apparently thought her family name, and a lot of money raised outside of Wyoming, would be enough to muscle Enzi out of the race. A baffled Enzi told reporters, "I thought we were friends."

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/is-liz-cheney-toast

I can understand Dick Cheney supporting his daughter 100%, come Punchy’s nogin or high water. I can understand the last gasps of the Bush-Cheney wing bent on revenge. But, if was a Republic lawyer and friend of the family, I might just shoot Liz in the ass like the Republic lawyer friend shot her Pops in the ass to keep it a family tradition.

Yes, the Job posting was taken down after the Federalist and other believers in our representative republic exposed the Democrat Party and corrupt current Administration for the Institutionalized surveillance state totalitarians for who and what they are.
Be that as it may, one much wonder what the hades were they thinking to have our tax collectors armed to the teeth and to exert lethal force on the citizenry. Would an audit suffice?

Dem Rep. Jayapal: Inflation Is ‘A Theoretical Word That Economists Use’

“Democratic Washington state Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal dismissed inflation as a “theoretical word” ahead of House Democrats’ final push to pass tax and climate spending legislation.

Speaking to reporters outside Capitol Hill Friday, Jayapal, who chairs the House Progressive Caucus, said that inflation was “a theoretical word that economists use” to describe everyday price increases that families experience. At the same time, Jayapal explained that the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” would lower everyday costs for Americans.”

Federal officials targeted me specifically; when they met with Twitter in April 2021, "they really wanted to know about Alex Berenson"

“Biden Administration officials asked Twitter to ban me because of my tweets questioning the Covid vaccines, even as company employees believed I had followed Twitter’s rules, internal Twitter communications reveal.

In a White House meeting in April 2021, four months before Twitter suspended my account, the company faced “one really tough question about why Alex Berenson hasn’t been kicked off from the platform,” a Twitter employee wrote.”

Paul 1138am - Because you peremptorily dismiss reliable news sources like the Federalist, you don’t know what’s happening in the country. The cited report can easily be verified to have come from bipartisan organizations. But because you and yours are blindered by the lamestream which does not report news that doesn’t comport with the radical leftwing narrative, you are never the wiser. You no doubt even believe that the Dems latest atrocity going through Congress will reduce inflation, not tax people making less than $400K/yr, and green the planet. That again is why these conversations can never get off the ground.
