(8) The Lord sent a word into Jacob (ed. the grabber), and it hath lighted upon Israel (ed. he who has power with God).

(9) And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart (ed. stubbornness), (10) The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars. (11) Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; (12) The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

(13) For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts. (14) Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. (15) The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. (16) For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

Isaiah Chapter 9 (KJV)

Several government officials repeated these words, “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars” in response to the warning we received about allowing unvetted criminals who hate us and everything our nation stands for: liberty, equality, opportunity, and prosperity for all. Due to our irrational “politically correct” insistence on ignoring what these people were likely to do, a group of them was allowed to cause the deaths of nearly 3,000 non-combatant men, women, and children who had never done anything to harm these people. The perpetrators were able to commit their crimes against non-combatant civilians, America, and humanity, because we ignored common sense and our existing law to let them remain inside this country.

The immigration of certain foreign groups was forbidden through the McCarran-Walter Act (P.L. 82-414, aka 8 USC 12) in 1952, which was voted into law over democrat President Truman’s veto by more than a 2/3 majority in both House (71%) and Senate (69%). The purpose of this law was expressed in part by Sen. McCarren who said:

I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors. … However, we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies.

Far from being “racist” or discriminatory, the Act permitted relatives of US Citizens to immigrate without being subject to quotas, and expanded the definition of the “United States” for nationality purposes, which already included Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, to add Guam. Persons born in these territories on or after December 24, 1952 acquire U.S. citizenship at birth on the same terms as persons born in other parts of the United States.[5] (Wikipedia)

The Act allowed the government to deport immigrants or naturalized citizens engaged in subversive activities and also allowed the barring of suspected subversives from entering the country.

The act also allowed the government to prevent polygamists from entering the country. It specifically stated under Title II, chapter 2, “GENERAL CLASSES OF ALIENS INELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE VISAS AND EXCLUDED FROM ADMISSION”, Section 212, sub (a), part (11): “Aliens who are polygamists or who practice polygamy or advocate the practice of polygamy”. If one was a polygamist, advocate of polygamy or one’s religious belief or ideology advocates the practice of polygamy, they would not be allowed in the United States under this law. Muslims are polygamists, practice it, and advocate it as a part of their ideology.

The September 11, 2001 attack was a wake up call, a warning: we needed a Jehu to ride in and drain the swamp. I hope we have one now.

The head of these monsters, I think, was cut off when Obama and his Slytherin cronies were cast out of office in 2016.

The problem is that it takes a huge demonic basilisk like this a long time to die out, and all the time it is dying it is also spewing its venomous hatred about – ‘liberals’ today do not really care who they injure so long as they injure as many as possible.

The ‘heads’ are presently exposed, discredited, disenfranchised, and potentially about to be prosecuted for the massive corruption and other crimes they committed while in office, we might say “dying” by the roadside, pathetically, futilly, crying for some token that they can be relevant again, but they are spewing their venomous hatred, with “liberals” opposing any and everything based only upon their own hatred and not any rational thought process or reality.

A common political meme is to say that President Trump should ask all Americans to breath air so that liberals would refuse to breath, their irrational hatred is so intractably virulent.

This chance to return to a more sane government which makes decisions and forms policies based upon facts that will “form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity (yes, our posterity is those of us who are as yet pre-born)”, not political feel-good-ish-ness to gain the consent and approval of foreigners who envy or outright hate us, happened only through the mercy of God invoked through a month of prayer and fasting across the nation prior to the election – no other intervention is capable of defeating the voter fraud of the corrupt Democrat electioneering machine.

The tail remains and is about to be cut off. Maybe.

Activate the indictments. Prosecute. Carry out the judgments.

Instead of declaring that we will ignore clear warnings and do whatever other people tell us we should like, or cower in fear that some fool will disapprove, we need to stand together and clearly say “Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? I uttered that I understood not. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” We need to write in our daily actions “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”


The “Data Center” of the Future

A visual model of the Data Center of the Future: Coffee Maker insides after years of use.

I just read through Network World’sHow a data center works, today and tomorrow” (see https://www.networkworld.com/article/3223692/data-center/how-a-data-center-works-today-and-tomorrow.html).

They feel ‘The future of data centers will rely on cloud, hyperconverged infrastructure and more powerful components’.

I partly agree, and partly disagree.

The IT business cycle is well known: IT starts as a centralized department, becomes a bottleneck, other departments set up their own IT for operational survival, the uncoordinated small IT becomes unmanageable, policy swings back to standardizing and centralizing IT, and the cycle repeats. So “Data Centers” will be centralized, then distributed, then centralized again … likely forever at the corporate level.

The controlling force will not be commercial dominance: no one company will succeed at becoming the global “Data Center Hegemon” – grass roots, open source, widely varied people driven interests will take over IN SPITE of corporate attempts to “own” the Data Center scene. The “Data Centers” inside large organizations will be a tiny part of the planetary Data Center.

I also disagree that the Data Center of the future will be composed mostly of more powerful things, rather I feel that it will be made up of far less powerful things, redundant, error correcting, in massive numbers, using cooperative computing protocols, to become a massive unified computing power. As each cell in a human body is little by itself, coordinated together all the cells form a much more significant and powerful organism: an organism that can loose many cells, survive, heal, and grow. No single corporation, or corporate alliance, can approach this potential because of management, legal, contractual, and financial encumbrances. The Data Center’s life blood is network connectivity and its future body will be shaped accordingly.

All technologies must eventually inter-operate, and those which do not will be relegated to irrelevance, but most of this will be from non-corporate innovation, not for profit initiatives. There will likely be government attempts initiated by corporate influence to eradicate all “unauthorized” software on some pretense: any software not sold by “authorized” programmers, such as that created by programmers not under corporate control and released for the public good without mandated government “back doors” or for profit motives may even be criminalized. Public software will not only survive but it will grow and the attempts to destroy it will drive it underground, improve it, increase its sophistication, and make it harder, not easier, to oppose.

And yes, I believe some large corporations will contribute to the process, which will eventually be overwhelmed and confiscated by massive grass roots factors, gently, slowly, imperceptibly until it is too late. The surviving Corporations will be the ones which recognize this from the start and design to work together with rather than oppose global communications.

There will always be “free public cloud” ( that is, network based file and app servers), sometimes  bootlegged inside ‘secure’ corporate systems, but there will be much more storage a kilobyte at a time from mundane and ignored things such as Mom’s pacemaker or Uncle Joe’s radio all coordinated by Harriot’s thermostat. IoT device security and control will improve accordingly. Remember BitCoin. In the future, my FitBit may be harboring 1% of your favorite vacation picture for you – but don’t worry, if I upgrade my watch Harry’s fish locator and Mary’s microwave have redundant copies just in case.

The idea that people in mass will keep their most private data on a server owned by some for profit entity that will turn everything over to secret government agencies or marketers at a whim is unworkable until people have absolute confidence that their private data will remain absolutely private NO MATTER WHAT. This can never happen with any ownership of centralized “Cloud” services because government can and will seize those centralized computers if they think it necessary.

There will probably be significant human influencers wearing rags and living in dilapidated buildings or on the streets as well as those wearing jeans or tuxedos and living in middle-class homes or skyscrapers. BOT nets will no longer be merely for mafia profits, ransomware,  and spam generators but will be a means to suborn “secure” private networks or effect communications kept temporarily private from “official” corporate or government eyes.

The “Data Center” of the future will not be one place but every place. It will be connected by multiple redundant means to circumvent corporate power to use government to silence profit syphoning opposition. It will not look like a ‘Max Headroom’ dystopia but free open source software will be critical in its reliable operation even though specific corporate proprietary software will also be present.

And the one thing we can count on is that it will be constantly changing all of the time. How can for profit corporate interests survive or thrive in this new world? Easy, simply make your corporation indispensable to the victors.


The Cold is to be Expected

tnt-bomb-gualtiero-boffi-300x300First the Federal Government banned the incandescent light bulb on the dubious excuse that it used too much energy. Now they are banning coal as a fuel to generate electricity. What with all this massive corrections to prevent Global Warming it was to be expected that we would have the coldest, iciest winter in a century.

Back Off Guys! You’ve “saved” us enough already!
