SPACE: Be Sure to Pack the ‘Essentials’ On Your Space Trip

Sorry I missed publishing the weekly skywatch “SPACE” post. Just think of it as a ‘time-slippage’ at the edge of a black hole… heh! We had a busy day Saturday starting early morning with our two high school vastity track Grandkids’ first invitational meet of the season. Both did pretty good coming out of a long winter. And after the oldest Grandson’s 1600 race we headed for the car (UP the darned hill!) because he decided not to run the 3200 … thankfully, because weather conditions were getting worse than they’d even been all day. We headed for the uphill parking lot (cripes I’m out of shape) and the extremely high winds and driving drenching rain hit, some gusts reportedly clocked at 60-70mph (then and throughout the rest of the day). My husband was practically dragging me up the hill but I could hear loud snapping and cracking behind us in the distant partially wooded area between the high school track area and the neighborhood behind it, so, I stopped, turned and watched trees being snapped at their upper third trunks. Husband is saying, “Don’t look! Just keep going!” And I told him I already had a spot picked out in the ditch along the football field fence to jump into and hold on. He said, “Hell no!”. Finally, we reached the car, got in and left amid the wild winds. My daughter called (FaceTime) after they left the field to show me the bruise on her right cheek where tree debris hit her before they headed to their car. What we saw on the way home convinced me there must’ve been a tornado trying to form above us. Husband witnessed a group of transformers on a pole on one side of the five-lane highway lift up and send a flashing sparking arc across the road to the other side (I missed it as I was searching my phone for radar and warnings). A couple hours later at home ‘boom-boom, out went the lights’. Power went out around 5-ish and didn’t come back on for roughly 12 hours. And the winds kept howling. Power company could not send out crews until the winds died down way after midnight. Everyone stay safe as March intends to go out like a lion. Prayers to those south of Ohio enduring the last couple of days of death and destruction from the sky.

Outside of the original “Star Trek” TV series of the 1960s, and the spin-off feature films of that series/cast, and then the recent ‘re-imagined’ and retreaded “Star Trek” characters re-casted movies, I’ve not followed any of the original TV series spin-offs. However, a recent episode storyline of the spin-off series “Star Trek: Picard” – ‘The Bounty’ curiously addresses legendary Capt. James T. Kirk’s unexpected ‘cameo’ in the plot while previous plots of previous series storylines contradict it…

“NOPE” has been added to Amazon Prime videos. I’ve watched it. It’s a very different and interesting take on UFOs with a touch of dry humor. Very dry. I liked it. But just a tip to watch it in a dark room as many scenes take place in the dark of night. Too much sunlight was coming in the room when I watch and those scenes were a little ‘lost viewing’ for me. Will be watching again in the evening with lights out…

Well, somebody has decided to try their hand at the classic “War of the Worlds” story … again…

Weekend Reads:

Had to grab ^^today’s header meme^^ from J.J. Sefton’s morning post on AoSHQ. The guy’s a friggin’ genius…

For the benefit of those who have similar recent Ivy League degrees like Bragg or who get their news from CNN, Donald Trump did not commit any crime he entered into a legal, non-disclosure agreement with the skank-in-question years ago. But of course, what does the law mean to those who only use their positions of authority within the system to persecute political enemies? If everything that we have been through since 2020 and really going back to the Obama reign of error (and let’s face it; this is his third term), doesn’t convince you that America as it was or as we had thought it was has ceased to be, then the use of the law as a political weapon of repression is proof positive.

Psaki-psircling to Bragg, a toxic mix of Marxism, Trump derangement and plain rank incompetence despite the Harvard Law degree (affirmative action by any other name would be DEI/D-I-E) courses through his sclerotic veins; the central theme of his campaign for Manhattan DA was indicting and convicting Donald Trump. Kind of funny considering his attitude about real crime and criminals…

Read the whole thing. Sefton has a magnificent “eyes-in-the-back-of-his-head” ‘panoramic’ view of situations.

Some republicans/conservatives are joining the “Never Trump” cult and hoping for a return to worshiping the establishment GOP…

Kimberly Ross: Trump isn’t worth it anymore — Republicans must decouple from him ahead of 2024 … I deify nobody (that rare occasion where I seem to hoist ‘worship’ onto someone is just giving them ‘props’ for their accomplishment). I think Pres. Trump did a fantastic job as POTUS at every level. He had a tough job dealing with the conniptions of the left and the MSM. But I think if he wants his “second term” he needs to be a little more refined and less bombastic. He can be his own worst enemy at times. People have had more than enough with the nasty turn our society has taken and would be looking for a real unifying voice. His tactic was very useful six years ago when he had to claw his way through the MSM/political/Swamp establishment and into the White House. He has far more gravitas this time around as he has an undeniable record as POTUS and can compare it directly with this current administrations mass destruction of our country, especially when his policies were tossed away. I believe Trump returning to the Oval Office desk would pull this country out of the black hole it’s being sucked into. But I also believe a Pres. Ron DeSantis could do the same job.

It’s a farce, it’s a sham, it’s a mockery of a farce of two shams of a travesty. But so is the fact that the United States of America – that is the nation formerly known as the United States of America – has more in common now with a third world banana republic shit hole. And considering the intentional or accidental via intentional ideological destruction of our economy, the censorship and demonization of all voices of political dissent everywhere (because now every aspect of your life is political, not just party politics) and the continued imprisonment of innocent people for a government-staged “riot” among many other depredations that began with a stolen election, we’re no doubt already there.

At some point we are going to have what I refer to as the President for Life, for this week. Whether or not they are replaced with whoever is the Flight Lieutenant or Generalissimo du jour, they will all be part and parcel of the Democrat Deep State junta…

Andrew McCarthy: Here’s more evidence Alvin Bragg’s crusade against Donald Trump is political: D.A. Alvin Bragg is best known for being soft on real crimes committed by hardened offenders

New York has election finance laws, too, and it has been suggested that Bragg may rely on them to try to prove the felony. But those laws apply to statewide offices, not the presidency. The fact that presidential elections are conducted by each state (i.e., we don’t have a single, national election) does not mean New York’s legislature may preempt the campaign financing rules Congress has enacted for federal offices.

What’s more, in New York – where self-styled “progressive prosecutors,” such as Bragg, are soft on real crimes committed by hardened offenders – campaign finance violations are not treated as felonies subject to criminal prosecution. They are routinely disposed of by the imposition of fines.

For example, as The Gothamist reports, New York City’s mayor, Eric Adams, is currently facing likely fines for accepting illegal campaign contributions, improperly accounting for them, and then contemptuously ignoring requests for documentation by state election authorities. Nothing new about that: former mayors Bill DeBlasio and Mike Bloomberg also ran into trouble with state election officials, the former fined, the later cited for violating “the spirit” of the laws in connection with a dubious $1.2 million contribution. There were no criminal prosecutions…

Meanwhile, this NYC Bragg straw-dog crap must not be polling well, so, onto the next dog-chewed old matchless shoe…

The More Things Change, The More They Stay “Paralyzed”

Yesterday I watched an old B/W movie on TCM, “Sister Kenny”, staring Rosalind Russell, Dean Jagger, and Alexander Knox. The story, of course, was about Sister Elizabeth Kenny (“Sister” is what nurses were titled in Australia) who became a young nurse in the bush country of Queensland, Australia in the early 20th century years ahead of WWI.

At the beginning of her tenure as the local bush nurse Sister Kenny encountered a half-a-dozen children who had contracted Polio. After telegramming the hospital doctor over fifty miles away, and his response being that there was no cure or medicine for the disease and its resulting physical paralysis affliction and was told to just ‘treat the symptoms’, basically to only just make the child comfortable.

After Kenny’s intelligent observation of the constricting of the body’s muscles, she decided hot compress-wrapping of those areas to relax the muscles would bring the body out of the painful and agonizing twisted formations. However, she was puzzled when the child (her first patient a little girl) could not then move her legs or pull herself up to the sitting position after the hot-wraps had ceased the horrific body spasms. Kenny critically examined the legs and decided which muscles had ‘shortened’ as a result of the spasms and which had not. From there she decided they were not ‘damaged’ and paralyzed, but they had to be “re-educated” to move through physical therapy of the child.

Sidenote: Y’all know I’m a “The Waltons” binge-watcher. There is a two-part Easter episode in one of the earlier seasons (circa early mid-1930s) where mother Olivia Walton comes down with Polio. The local country doctor insisted she and the family resolve themselves to her inevitable physical paralysis for the rest of her life. To which eldest child and pre-college-age son “John Boy” wouldn’t take that prognosis and sought-out the local university professor and medical doctor who himself was paralyzed by Polio. He enlightened John Boy to Sister Kenny’s method of dealing with Polio, provided information on the method, and warned John Boy the medical community was resistent to Sister Kenny’s philosophy and methods regarding Polio treatment and that they considered her a “quack”. To which their country doctor proved the professor’s forewarnings. However, the Walton family persisted and the methods eventually had Olivia Walton on her feet and walking again back to normal.

Back to the real analogy I’m eventually going to make here…

Sister Kenny had strong opposition to the typical method of the doctor putting the Polio-addled legs, arms, and back/neck in splints to restrict the muscles in one position. Her method was to free them and to coax then into moving again. The story in the movie showed how the doctors in Australia not only did not agree with her philosophy and methods in dealing with Polio patients (to which these very vocal doctors claimed her patients did not have Polio, and kept her from treating active Polio patients in front of them to prove her point), but how she was persecuted for daring to question them (closing her clinics that she would establish for her treatment of post-Polio children who were in wheelchairs/crutches/splints). Kenny did not criticize the medical community/profession and acknowledged their due respect. She was only pleading for and expecting them to have open minds outside the antiquated and dangerous old orthodox treatment of the disease in their literature they were locked into. She desperately wanted them, as scientists and doctors, to have an honest open ‘scientific’ discussion and debate with her and her method and findings, not treat her with ridicule, disdain and, yes, disrespect. So much so that they scoffed at her terminology regarding the disease’s condition and description of the patients’ muscles during and after the initial onset of Polio: spasms to describe her direct observations the Polio attack on the muscles and incoordination, re-education, alienation to describe the condition of the shortened and atrophied— not ‘paralyzed’, muscles after the hot compress wraps had subsided the acute spasms… See where I’m going with this?

I could not help but recall how similar this was to what we have seen these last three years of the Fauci-led medical community and industry in dealing with COVID patients. The medical associations and boards threatened any doctors that did not carry and abide by the constructed narrative about the treatment of the disease. This was not only prior to any big pharma development of COVID drug treatments that are now available, but continues to this day in regard to therapeutics such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine both longtime affordable available drugs with little or no ramifications to the patient using them. Actually, from what my own doctor says, those are far less harmful to kidneys and other organs than the new COVID drugs (and the damn vaccines).

While the feeling of familiarity grew on me with the old movie it was this interaction and the words of the only doctor at the time that was on her side for years, Dr. McDonnell. Sister Kenny and her betrothed Capt. Kevin Connors are having a discussion with Dr. McDonnell about trying to get Kenny’s method for Polio made public despite the tactics of the medical community to obstruct and silence her. Connors believes they should go to the newspapers and give them her story. However, McDonnell warns that would give those adamant doctors ammunition to completely delegitimize Kenny irreparably, “cancel” her if you will. The Dr. Brack they’re discussing is Sister Kenny’s most vocal and stubborn opposition leading the way against her and her method:

Dr. McDonnell: “Brack’s in the warpath. Even my scalp feels a bit loose at the edges.”

Capt. Conners: “He’d look pretty silly if you took it to the newspapers.”

Sister Kenny: “Tell them everything. Kevin that’s wonderful.”

Capt. Connors: “He wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.”

Dr. McDonnell: “If you were a quack, Elizabeth, that’s exactly what I’d tell you to do. You’d hang yourself in no time. Medical questions aren’t settled in the newspapers. You’d brand yourself as a fake in the eyes of every decent doctor in the country.”

Capt. Conners (Kenny’s betrothed): “You mean to say that every decent doctor in the country is a pig-headed fool?”

Dr. McDonnell: “Well now, look, Captain. Suppose a civilian came to you in the field and told you your military science was all wrong. You’d tell him to go to blazes, wouldn’t you? Well, the medical profession is society’s only defense against quackery. Our degrees, our licenses, our medical associations are a wall to protect society against vicious men who are willing to trade on human ignorance and misery.”

Isn’t that pretty much what the MSM, and the social media, did to any/all very knowledgeable and experienced viral doctors and scientists who dared go against the set narrative being regurgitated by Fauci, the CDC, the MSM, the ‘influencers’ on the left, etc.? I mean, Elon Musk’s Twitter Files have exposed the direct marriage and coordination between the federal government entities and the social media companies. And those scientists/doctors who dared do or say anything opposite of them were “canceled” … and private doctors threatened with license and board certification cancelation(s) if they dared prescribe, or even suggest patients seek, alternative therapeutics for COVID infection.

The COVID era has been shockingly brazen in its inability to approach the virus as a real scientific community of critical thinking and debate/discussion. The powers that have been during this time have continually sniped that anything outside what they themselves were promoting was “dangerously untested and unproven”, even though what they were having done, including their eventual vaccines, were exactly that … dangerously untested and unproven. And no amount of contrary compiled data has been permitted. A completely incurious and eagerly/willingly complicit MSM has made this medical conspiracy possible, and to this day with yet another unproven wet-market “animal” blame as the “origins” of the virus … not the bio-weapons viral lab in Wuhan, China working on the exact same virus. What an ass-backward travesty has been carried out these last three years on the public in this country and around the world … and the establishment gun-to-the-head self-inflicted wound to our collective medical community and government.

And I must bring up how strident the medical establishment has been in this anti-science abomination in the face of a virus that has destroyed lives on many levels while they’re refusing to allow anyone else’s methods for treating COVID patients and calling it “THE SCIENCE” … is the same establishment medical community going along with and allowing the abomination of irreversible surgical sex/gender mutilations and drug poisoning to stunt puberty hormones and medical castration of … CHILDREN! Along with the same cast of malpracticing dolts that have sold their souls to the “climate change” cult.

In conclusion, Sister Kenny was in-demand in other countries. Eventually, in 1940, she visited America and was finally allowed to present her case, with ‘curious’ questions but not criticism, to the medical community very willing to listen during the ongoing challenges of Polio. Kenny’s proven theory and methods became part of a foundation for a new era of physical therapy.

Off-subject sidenote:

This was atleast the third production (I’m sure there are more) I’ve discovered actresses Beulah Bondi and Ellen Corby together in…

“Sister Kenny”:

– Beulah Bondi played Sister Kenney’s mother
– Ellen Corby had a brief role as a hospital cleaning woman (uncredited and for lack of a published photo I took a TV screen shot complete with ambient daylight in my room reflecting in the TV screen and discoloring the center of the photo)

“It’s a Wonderful Life”:

– Beulah Bondi played George Bailey’s mother
– Ellen Corby played a young woman during the bank-run on the Bailey bank

In “The Waltons”:
