Some of David Hogg's original video from Parkland shooting incident




Smoking Gun Hogg” or “Hogg’s ‘Original’ Edited Version”, from “The Vortex Math Laboratory”.


I don’t know factually how much of this was shot during the actual event Feb. 14, 2014 at Stoneman Douglas hospital. It looks real. 

“Without action, ideas remain ideas”.
  
Here is Dr. Phil’s video interview of David.  He already had been told of Cruz's identity shortly after the event, while still in hiding.

"Hurricane Michael: Inside the Eye"



"Hurricane Michael: Inside the Eye"


A storm chaser approaches the wall as it returns, and gets stopped by a toppled oil rig;
The sun is out in the middle.  Then this becomes like a horror movie. "Take Shelter".

"Are You Ready for The Second American Civil War?": Tim Pool pod cast from this summer





On July 1, 2018 Tim Pool (Timcast) made a strong podcast, an hour long,  Are You Ready for the Second American Civil War?” with two friends, one of them named “Emily” and “Reactor”.


Tim outlines some scenarios, based on numbers of violent protesters, where violent uncontrollable insurgencies within the US could evolve, especially from the extreme left.

The idea is suggested that some day historians may suggest that the Second American Civil War started with Charlottesville.

He also suggests that a massive ground invasion of the US from enemy insurgents is conceivable.

The panelists speculate about the Supreme Court and the possible overturning of Roe v Wade before Kennedy resigned and Kavanaugh was appointed. Pool makes the point that survival supplies could be a good business idea now (along with Nicholas Taleb's "Skin in the Game" theory), but it's based more on the idea of out of control political violence than foreign (North Korean) EMP. 

Tim mentions a March 2018 issue by Chris Hedges in Common Dreams, "The Coming Collapse".  The loss of the dollar as a reserve currency is mentioned, but Porter Stansberry has preached that for years (as does Ron Paul).

Pool made an interesting progression in his history:  from Dred Scott to Harper's Ferry (1859, one of my favorites spots) to Fort Sumter.  Charlottesville isn't quite in that sequence yet.

NYTimes recent video: "Is President Trump Fascist?"



The New York Times has a recent (Oct. 15) video editorial, “Is President Trump Fascist?
  
  
Jason Stanley (professor of philosophy at Yale) draws parallels between Trump’s words and previous fascists in history. Included is a call for the better times for the privileged people in a patriarchal past.


I think you can make a case for the idea that fascism can indirectly arise from personal values, as we have explored in videos here before.

CNN: Aerial view of Mexico Beach, FL after Hurricane Michael



The most grave damage from Hurricane Michael was at Mexico Beach, a bit East of Panama City, FL


There’s another video made as the hurricane passed.

Again, I’m lucky enough to have lived in relatively lower risk areas from floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires.

But somebody has to live there.

But should public policy encourage people to live “on the beach” and do nothing about climate change? Trump, again.  However, some new construction on pilings did survive 155 mph winds sustained.  That is possible if you spend enough money on metal construction.
  
This hurricane maintained wind strength on land, into GA and S.C., much longer than most do.

Why in physics, "weaklessness" might not be such a good thing for existence



Why the Weak Nuclear Force Ruins Everything” on Sci-Show. This is a little different from most posts on this blog.  It's only a hypothetical risk. 


Of the four major forces, the weak nuclear force is the only one to violate spin symmetry laws and to treat anti-matter and matter differently.

Some physicists have proposed some alternate universes might be “weakless” – which would mean no radioactivity and no decay of elements, and no nuclear weapons.

That means no North Korea’s.  But it might also mean that since matter and anti-matter would cancel out, there would be no universe at all.

So in physics, ideological equality, however correct politically, isn’t always what you want.
