Shitstorm Saturday?

I keep hoping to be able to describe the day as “Shitstorm Saturday” but it hasn’t quite happened yet.

Perhaps the Clinesmith thing will turn out–at long last!! to be the fatal crack in the damned dam.

As for that fraudster Sundance…it sounds like he’s delaying now. His bluff has been called. Well, putting it that way assumes Barr is actually paying attention to the pipsqueak.

We need to get going on Justice.

Coin of The Day

As a coin collector, I have a superpower.

I can make change for a cent. Not that I ever would, not this way.

“Classic Head” half cent.

Yes, there is such a thing as a half cent. And it weighed in at 84 grains (yes, the same grains as bullets and powder), pure copper. Our current cent, before mid-1982 when it suffered the ignominy and debasement of being made out of zinc with a copper coating on it, weighed 48 grains, making the half cent 1.75 times as massive as the old “small cent.”

So if you own two of these, you can break a cent, but you’d be ill-advised unless the cent is a very valuable one.

Before 1857, the United States had what collectors now call “Large Cents” (in contrast to the current “Small Cent”) and these half cents. Many collectors specialize in these coins, especially the large cents, to the point where there’s even a sizeable club (Early American Coppers) dedicated to collecting them. They’ll collect them not only by date, but by variety–every die that was used to make these had minor (and sometimes not so minor) differences, and people have studied those for at least a hundred and fifty years. And if you think those people surely have no lives, how about the ones who specialize in one die pair and try to collect coins from when that die was new versus when it was falling apart and had to be retired?

Collectors consider large cents to be totally different from small cents. A reference book on US coins, which is typically divided into chapters by denomination, will of course distinguish between the silver dollar and the gold dollar as well (and the silver three cent piece, and nickel three cent piece, and the half dime and the copper-nickel “nickel”). But even though large cents and small cents are (er…dammit until 1982) largely made of copper, they get separate chapters.

Half cents are not collected as avidly as large cents, and are thus considerably less expensive even though there are many fewer of them out there. (Should there suddenly be a great interest in them, their values will climb, quite a bit.)

The problem that these coins faced when they were current, was their weight. 168 grains for a large cent is more than midway between the weight of a (silver) quarter and a (silver) half dollar, yet the bugger was only worth one cent. They saw little use outside of major cities, but even that demand was enough that the mint cranked them out, every year between 1793 and 1857, except for 1815 when no copper was available. People didn’t care for the weight, but they really had no alternative.

The half cent was also bulky for its value, but the denomination itself was nearly useless, so the mint made them only sporadically. Consider the time spans of the different designs: Liberty Cap (1793-1797) to Draped Bust (1800-1808) to Classic Head (1809-1836) to Braided Hair (1840-1857). There are gaps between all but two of these designs when no half cents were made. None were made from 1812-1824. And the first ten years of Braided Hair half cents were only proof specimens made for collectors, none for general use.

One technological change partway through the series was that in 1831, the mint started using a new press that would actually put the coin in a collar while being struck, instead of letting the thing squeeze out between the dies while being struck.

The mint only made operating profit by making cents and half cents. Silver and gold coinage was specified to be of full intrinsic value, but the copper in a large cent, at least initially, was worth less than a cent. But as the 19th century proceeded, that profit became smaller and smaller, and eventually it was decided to do something different.

And now for the rest of the story…

Midway through 1857, the small cent was introduced, and the old coppers, both of them, discontinued, but it wasn’t quite the small cent you knew as a child. It was considerably thicker, and was 12% nickel. That nickel additive had the effect of making it much more difficult for the cent to tarnish; even today they are all a light tan color. However the metal was harder, meaning it was more difficult to strike into coins. The cent weighed in at 72 grains (an extra 50% in weight compared to the pre-1982 cents we grew up with), and bore a flying eagle on its face.

They were instantly popular with the public, and ironically coin collecting got a considerable boost (almost nobody collected coins before that date) as nostalgia for the large cent and half cent increased and people decided to save them.

That was changed in 1859 to an Indian head, the reverse wreath changed the next year, and finally, in 1864 the cent was made thinner and the nickel was removed from the alloy, bringing it to its “modern” spec of 48 grams of copper (with a small admixture of zinc and, usually, tin). The cent stayed in that form with two major design changes until 1982. (In 1909 Lincoln replaced the Indian and wheat ears replaced the old wreath on the reverse, and in 1959 the Lincoln Memorial replaced the wheat ears, both events in celebration of major anniversaries of Lincoln’s birth in 1809). There was one exception; in 1943 the cent was made of galvanized steel to save copper for the war effort (unfortunately, it was too easily confused with a dime in that color).

The lowly cent, disregarded and now suffering the shame of being made out of a metal regarded as the very epitome of “cheap,” indeed has a long and honorable past, even including a time when it had a lesser sibling, the half cent.

Standard disclaimer: Neither these, nor any other coins I show here, are ones I own. In some cases (but by no means all or even most of them) I own a similar coin or coins. But even when I do, it’s not as nice as the pictures I find on the internet.

      And then proceeds to tie that to Q post 26 from waaaaay back (2017/11/01). So 11.3 has a double meaning and not merely the upcoming election.

      1. The ‘pieces’ have been in plain view for a couple decades.

        For example:
        A goal is to RFID tagging everyone so they are subject to tracking. However TPTB are following a multi level plan to “herd” us into compliance. “grope-N-fly” was one prong the Mask Nazis are another.

        From my old notes:
        THE BIGGY is OBAMACARE. RFID taging of patients has already begun.

        (Titles of old articles)
        RFID Wrsitbands for Hospital Application Edison NJ

        Should Doctors Make the Patient Internet Portal Leap?

        The demand for RFID systems in healthcare, notably RTLS, is poised for significant growth

        It is very simple NO TAG no health care. The food bill, now passed, with the FDA taking orders from Codex Alimentarious, will eventually lead to alternatives from national healthcare being outlawed.

        Again even older information that has since changed on-line. The intent of the FDA is pretty obvious

        International Harmonization

        The harmonization of laws, regulations and standards between and among trading partners requires intense, complex, time-consuming negotiations by CFSAN officials. Harmonization must simultaneously facilitate international trade and promote mutual understanding, while protecting national interests and establish a basis to resolve food issues on sound scientific evidence in an objective atmosphere. Failure to reach a consistent, harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the freetrade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in considerable economic repercussions.

        Participation in Codex Alimentarius
        Cosmetics International Activities
        International Organizations and Standard-Setting Bodies…

        The first part most people are aware of. The small business health care exemption for companies under 50 employees. This effectively caps the grow of a small business. “We will let you get to 50 employees, after that all the red tape and cost will kick in to keep you from growing bigger.” says the US government.

        The 2008 “Red Flags” Rule does something similar. Again you are exempt unless you are a creditor “The definition of “creditor” is broad and includes businesses or organizations that regularly defer payment for goods or services or provide goods or services and bill customers later.’ This means that technically the guy I just bought hay from is a covered because he delivered hay directly out of the field (not the barn – more labor), and I sent him payment a couple days later when I had the funds.

        The real big issue, that effects most if not ALL small business, is the new 1099 reporting requirements. What is a 1099? “1099 forms are used for a number of reasons, though, typically, they are given to independent contractors–also known as “freelancers”–as a record of the income they received from a particular business.”

        Section 9006 of the health care bill — just a few lines buried in the 2,409-page document — mandates that beginning in 2012 all companies will have to issue 1099 tax forms not just to contract workers but to any individual or corporation from which they buy more than $600 in goods or services in a tax year.

        Think about it a small business owner will be swamped tracking all his suppliers, whether he bought $600 worth of goods, whether he paid, cash, check or by CREDITCARD>

        And then it becomes obvious where the “we the people” are being move towards:

          People call the physical coin –the red or brown one that says ONE CENT on the back, a penny–and you did too, in the very next sentence. The quantity of money, however is called a “cent.” People talk of things costing 39 cents, not 39 pennies, but they might have a lot of one cent pieces in their pocket, at which point they’ll say that they have 39 pennies in their pocket, not 39 cents, because 39 cents could be made up in multiple different ways.

        Did you know that Kamala’s great-great WOULD NOT ALLOW SLAVES TO WORSHIP GOD!!!

        Hamilton Brown, Kamala Harris’ paternal ancestor, an attorney, enslaved Africans, Creole, Irish . . . white, black and brown alike, and persecuted Methodist, Baptist and Anglican abolitionists

        ….Whitely was forced to return to England just seven weeks later by a mob representing the “Saint Ann’s Colonial Church Union.” Hamilton Brown was a member and leader of this Union. They had come to tar and feather him for the sin of asking questions of the slaves and inciting them to question their conditions. He pled guilty to all of the charges except preaching to a gathering of 150 slaves at one time…

        To replace his newly-released African and Creole slaves, Limerick ‘Slaves’ for Jamaica by Carl Senior (1986) presented compelling research showing how Hamilton Brown and his fellow slavers and sub-agents used street pamphlets to lure Irish peasants hungry from the potato famine to move to Jamaica with the promise of: (1) free passage with food, (2) comfortable cottage, (3) medicine and medical care, (4) sow pig and milk cow, (5) barrels of oatmeal and herring, (6) good wages and (7) Roman Catholic churches and chapels.

        Item 7 was especially disingenuous since Whitely had described how slaves were being whipped for even the sin of praying, not to mention forbidden from attending church, and Methodist and Baptist churches being destroyed for nurturing prayer and devotion to God.….

    1. In fact, I seriously think that many people who call themselves Christian, do not believe there is evil. If you use the word, they act as though you are rude. When was the last time in church have you heard mention of evil?
      They are the same ones who “don’t like President Trump’s tone”. So, will they vote for evil?

      1. in a society dominated by Christianity, there’s a great deal of benefit to professing Christianity.

        And of course it’s true that people who sincerely believe that they are good Christians can’t agree on what that means. If you doubt that see the occasional religious argument that breaks out here.

        Almost everyone pays lip service to it at the very least, because the consequences of not doing so can be pretty bad.

    Report: CDC Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff Leaving Agency

    Two top Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials are leaving the agency in the midst of the Trump administration’s war on the Chinese coronavirus, according to Politico.

    CDC chief of staff Kyle McGowan and Amanda Campbell, the deputy chief of staff, announced their exit in emails to officials Friday morning. In a statement to Politico, McGowan said the two are launching a consulting firm. The soon-to-former chief of staff also claimed he planned to depart the agency months ago, but stayed on due to the pandemic.

    “We picked this day on the calendar and left to start our own business,” McGowan stated. “No one has asked us to leave. No one has forced us to leave.”

    “We’re to a point where I feel comfortable leaving,” he added.

      1. Hell I’d feel more comfortable if the entire CDC retired or moved on to other employment.

        IMO, CDC integrity is on par with FIB, DOJ, IC, YSM, D-Rats, lawyers…

  6. For those who would like to read a summary of the Millie Weaver documentary rather than watch it, this is a good one: https://twitter.com/Suzi3D/status/1294729254840799232..



    Today, a pro-Trump journalist was arrested while releasing a new doco exposing major US intel & military figures, based on materials from 2 ex-employee whistleblowers.

    I have just viewed the doco. Its content is significant & I will now analyse it in full below.

    DISCLAIMER 1: I deliberately didn’t name the journalist, the documentary or the whistleblowers in the above tweet, because I’m well used to having my social media posts suppressed so was avoiding key words deliberately. I’ll post the links at the very end of the thread.

    DISCLAIMER 2: I am a journalist who specialises in writing about intelligence agencies and whistleblowers. I am not pro-Trump. I do not agree with much of the politics of the documentary maker & her whistleblowers. However, I believe their content is important and merits analysis

          1. Yeah, you didn’t use those for emphasis.

            I had a realtor once who prepared an entire paragraph explaining why someone should buy my house and every time he wanted emphasis he used quote marks. So instead of *air conditioning* it was “air conditioning” which came across to me (and quite possibly the addressee, as “so-called airconditioning”. And so on.

            Well, he did sell the place less than seven days later but I never want to use him again.

              1. I was getting more and more furious with the guy, until I realized he was ignorant. Then I worried the potential buyer would not figure it out. I wanted that buyer to either be too stupid to realize he was doing something wrong, or smart enough to realize it was wrong but an error. Someone in the middle might have read it according to correct usage rules–and believed it as such.


    1. BTW, the photo of KAM a La is a perfect example of what I posted earlier about the camera angles and lighting…( my suggestion of why the things in Biden’s study were elevated.)
      I saw the same during Pageant, lower or even in some cases level cameras angles made the Contestants look pretty awful for years until they were able to make some changes and start using the cameras on wires (like you see in sports these days).

        1. 🥰 The 3 female co-chairmen ran the Pageant with an iron fist and one “rule” was that we never supposed to have our photo taken or be interviewed.
          I worked closely with some major TV groups and they always wanted to put me on camera. One was Entertainment Tonight…had a blast working with them for a week. Despite many requests for interviews, camera time, etc, because we were such a major behind the scene role for the entire production..the answer was always no. However, at the end of our week, the producer told me to be sure to watch the credits of their hour show…and there I was…too late for any objection. Another time, there was a new CEO on board, and ABC was doing a little evening news feature on him…needed a visual prop of someone looking over the famous runway with him and that was me. Horrors! They couldn’t object but it was “against the rules!” Imagine my parents’ surprise when they saw me on national news that night.
          So, I really was a repeat “winner” in subtle ways! Just not with a crown. LOL

        1. When BoA bought out Nations Bank which bought Boatman’s Bank in these parts, they handed some iconic George Caleb Bingham mural paintings to the Saint Louis Art Museum (SLAM). I’m talking gave away MILLIONS in artwork just to get it out of the building.

      1. If there is a “ringleader” among all of the corrupt banks in America, I’d wager Bank of America is it. It seems like every major scummy bank scandal involves them somehow, including their large role in the 2008 financial crisis.

  7. KarlynB is part of #Walkaway and was going to an event. Karlyn B says they keep running into nasty hotel workers. I think that is because Hotel Workers are SEIU.

    Their page is PURPLE. they support Black Lives Matters and Biden.

    It s worth looking at their page to get a feel.

    Also Brietbart five years ago: Communists Thank SEIU for Help in Releasing Cuban Mass Murderer

    Karlyn says she tried to stay near the hotel lights but they then forced her completely OFF hotel property onto the dark road near midnight. This is in the middle of nowhere. Luckily her ride was only a few minutes away. I think they may have had ‘other plans’ for her that would have materialized if she had not left the area.

    In this case I disagree with Carlos IT WAS DELIBERATE MALICE triggered by the MAGA mask. I think if they could have arranged for her to be hurt they would.

    DrKarlynB says she was evicted from her hotel for wearing a #MAGA mask….

    1. Statement from the President on the Passing of Robert Trump
      Issued on: August 15, 2020

      It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight. He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest in peace.

    1. oops … 2 comments tell me video is six weeks old… so, they’re saying stores have been boarded up for more than six weeks? I’m confused… and there’s very little traffic.

      1. Wouldn’t it be Divine if the judge in his case told the prosecutors, “I don’t care about the plea deal, I want it all charged, Sullivan style!”

        That would spin heads.

        1. It’d spin heads all right.

          Cases would have to go to trial from here on out (and we don’t have the court capacity to do it) because no defendant would ever trust a plea deal ever again.
