More envy of Greenwald’s influence

It’s really sad to see a man who once was a player in the blogosphere and a talented Jazz guitarist be consumed by envy. Charles tweets to one of his last follower Gus complaining about Greenwald’s followers.

Charles could have had influence and followers had he played his cards right. Charles is now a man who is envious of the success of others. It is really sad to watch.

    Chunky and Gus are a pathetic pair of losers, whining day after day about the successes of others. It’s so sad.

    On the other hand, watching the gayest insect in the world perch on a flower while stupid insects fly straight into its clutches is fascinating. Way to go, Glenn!

    This orchid mantis is also quite something:

  2. Kurt's 5150 warrant for Charles Icarus Johnson says:

    ” a legion of lesser dudebros”

    Get some psychiatric help Charles. You are a sick , sick man

  3. Kurt's legion of lesser says:

    Just wondering what Charles calls his tiny legion of guys like Gus?

    A legion of lesser untouchables?

    There was a time not too many years ago, when Charles wouldn’t let a man like Gus shine his bicycle. Now they are pals on twitter. This more than anything tells you how far Charles has fallen into the abyss

    • Kurt's just passing on an idea from my know-it-all father says:

      My Dad read this comment and he has the name for Charles’ tiny legion of sycophants. DAMN HIM HE’S A KNOW IT ALL !! whatever, I guess I can share it

      Since charles has a tiny legion and this tiny legion is crabby, He calls it a weegion of gloom

  4. Juan Epstein says:

    I’ll ask again. Anyone notice that he doesnt use @ggreenwald in his tweets?

    Doesnt this mean it doesnt go on Greenwalds timeline and no one sees it?

    Has he been blocked?

    • OLT's Something I Said, Maybe says:

      It’s a lame version of “subtweeting”, I believe, because Stalker Charles is not clever enough to make anyone think “Greenwald” without typing “Greenwald”.

      It’s a microaggression!

    • ISpeakProg says:

      Yes, I think Chunky whined like a 3 year-old when Greenwald blocked him a few months ago.

  5. Because I'm confused says:

    I thought skepticism is bad.

  6. Pakimon says:

    King Chunky is waxing philosophical and the sycophants are in awe of his magical ponytailed wisdom.

    How can Greenwald’s DudeBro minions stand against such a stellar intellect?

    • dnd - cuz Chunky be Tweetin' da luv all day ebba day says:

      By spying on our own citizens and the citizens of allies? And with nothing to show for it? Where are the busted terror cells and thwarted plots? Face it they’ve used terrorism as an excuse to stockpile private data on Americans all while claiming they have terrorism beat. And it’s gotten worse under the Obungle crew that Chunk comically thinks is so trustworthy. The same one that uses the IRS to harass private citizens.

      Seems to me that since every nation on Earth does espionage, we should want the US to do it better than any of them. I guess I’m crazy. 11 hours ago

  7. Pakimon says:

    Today’s word is “uniquely”.

    Er, wait a minute. It was yesterday’s word. 😆

    • dnd - cuz Chunky be Tweetin' da luv all day ebba day says:

      So dimwit I suppose is talking about needing a warrant to spy on a US citizen? That’s unique in Western countries? I don’t think so. But anyway that’s Greenwald and Snowden’s WHOLE POINT!! They aren’t going and getting those warrants but are stockpiling data anyway on US citizens, the vast majority of which aren’t even suspected of any crime.

      An ’07 report on the state of privacy protection by the US-based Electronic Privacy Information Center and the UK-based Privacy International ranked Canada, Hungary, Greece Romania and Argentina ahead of the US as having some safeguards but weakened protections. Whereas the US was characterized as an “Endemic surveillance society” along with Russia, China, N.Korea, Syria, Iraq, Jordan.

    LOLWUT???

    • dnd - cuz Chunky be Tweetin' da luv all day ebba day says:

      Wrong again Chunk you moron. Whether it literally means that or not, it’s close enough:

      The word’s evolution is bound up with colonialism. In 1903 the Sokoto caliphate, which ruled parts of what is now northern Nigeria, Niger and southern Cameroon, fell under British control. It led to anger among Muslims at the imposition of a non-Islamic education system.

      The term “ilimin boko” was used to describe the kind of schooling the colonialists brought with them. Literally ilimi is education (an n is added when it appears as part of a phrase). So ilimin boko is fake education. The fakeness described the foreign form of education being imposed. And the foreigners involved were Western. So it can mean “Western education” in a pejorative sense. Over time the phrase ilimin boko became shortened to just boko. But everybody knows that it is shorthand, Kabir says.

      “Western education is a sin” may not be the literal word-for-word translation. But it is correct, Kabir says.

    • Octopus says:

      Stupid-ass Gross thinks this is a major scoop, when the actual article tells us that the distinction is a very minor one. Boko Haram does refer to the perceived evil of Western education on the backwards Islamist minds of their people. FAIL!! 😆

      So I started looking around and struck gold with a paper by Paul Newman, professor emeritus in linguistics at Indiana University and one of the world’s leading authorities on the Hausa language.

      It turns out the Hausa language doesn’t have a four-letter word that means “Western education.” It isn’t a mash-up or an acronym. What it has is a word that came to be applied to a century-old British colonial education policy that many Hausa-speakers saw as an attempt, more-or-less, to colonize their minds.

    If an NSA memo says the NSA is putting backdoors in servers, then how is Gus so sure they aren’t?

  12. dnd - cuz Chunky be Tweetin' da luv all day ebba day says:

    Tell us oh Misled Chunky One. How is the NSA gathering data on every single phone call, email or text message you or I send going to save us from terrorism? Yet terrorists blew up the Boston Marathon last years despite a Giant Clue Bat from the Russians? So they’re Chechnyan Musims, in country, making and testing bombs, in possession of many guns, updating their JIHAD!!!! MySpace page with JIHAD!!!!! videos and Tamerlen’s fingered by the Ruskies as a batshit crazy terrorist. They must’ve made phone calls, emails and texts to their Chechnyan Muslim family members and others in the Chechnyan Muslim community.

    The FBI says they had their names mispelled, then another time he was just one of a hundred flagged names going through JFK. Who’s got time for that? Really? There were a hundred names where the Russians said “This guys a fucking terrorist!!”?

    I can see if you’re in the National Security business gazing at millions of American’s meta data is much more useful. So you think they sit there every day and run reports and say “Nope. Still no connections to garwsh darn terrorists that I can see. I see my girlfriend texted her ex so, I’m outa early today”

    Awsome!

    Nebraska Senate Nominee Says Religious Beliefs Can Justify Breaking Any Law lgf.bz/T2xkaF 1 hour ago

    I had to dig down into Sasse’s website to see what all the hullablloo is about. It’s evidently this shockingly radical statement that only a slavering right wing terrorist arsonist anarchist lunatic would write

    Ben Sasse believes that our right to the free exercise of religion is co-equal to our right to life. This is not a negotiable issue. Government cannot force citizens to violate their religious beliefs under any circumstances. He will fight for the right of all Americans to act in accordance with their conscience.

    I know. Terrifying radical extreme stuff! I’m sure he’s for total anarchy and not just talking about forcing private businesses to pay for contraceptive products and abortions.

    So if this reduced solar activity is a semi-permanent thing, which it has been numerous times in the past, then this seems like much more cause for concern. Space is a cold place. Our sun’s activity makes us warm and comfy and makes life flourish. Like the kind of life we raise and eat. When the sun is less active the whole chain of life suffers. There aren’t any scientists saying if we get cooler it becomes wetter and more verdant. But thanks to Global Pinheads like Obungle, Gore, Kerry other Lying Progressives in Western countries like the PM of France (we have 500 days to cure Climate Change!!) and other Pinhead idiots in the media, Hollyweird and totally unrelated sciences, we are now globally geared toward the exact opposite of what is much more probable and plausible.

    Studies: Weaker solar activity means colder, and colder also means drier

    So droughts in North America are coincident with solar insolation minima. We already know of the cause and effect relationship between solar cycle minima and East African rainfall. West African drought has been found to be linked to Atlantic sea surface temperatures2.

    With that knowledge, all we need to predict the timing of the next megadrought in North America is a long term solar activity forecast. That was also provided in 2013 by Steinhilber and Beer3. They predict a deep low in solar activity starting straight away and continuing for 150 years. This is Figure 4 from that paper:

    In effect, Figure 4 predicts a megadrought for North America from at least 2050 to 2200. Generations of people will experience what a Dalton Minimum is like, all their lives. In the meantime it will get colder and drier. In terms of the effect on agricultural productivity, productivity of corn production in the Corn Belt falls by 10% for each 1°C fall in annual average temperature. The Corn Belt also moves south by 144 km for each 1°C fall in annual average temperature. Soil quality declines to the south of the Corn Belt though so farms won’t be as productive. For example, one hundred years ago Alabama had four million acres planted to cotton. Today only 1.3 million acres are devoted to all agricultural crops. Unable to compete with the Corn Belt as it is now, a lot of acreage in Alabama has reverted to pasture and woodland.

    A fall in annual average temperature of 2.0°C might decrease production by 20% and the southward move to poorer soils might decrease production by 10% (purely a guess, but I do have a botany major). What drought might do on top of all that is a 30% fall for a total decrease in production in the range of 50% to 60%. Two big corne states, Illinois and Indiana, had corn production falls of 30% in the 2012 drought year:

    I bet Hillary WON’T run: Former Clinton aide says Hillary’s life is so good at present he thinks she won’t take a shot at the White HouseContrary to popular opinion, former White House press secretary to Bill Clinton Mike McCurry thinks Hillary Clinton ‘might not run’ for president in 2016
    I’m probably the …last person in Washington who’d be willing to take some bet that she might not run,’ he said.
    McCurry said Hillary could opt to continue her work at the Clinton Foundation rather than go through the hassle of pursuing higher office again</blockquote
