"And what does it mean that the modern bugman... is so eager to outsource his dietary instincts to an AI intent on minmaxing quantity of life at the expense of quality?"

Nannystate AI: You need to cut back on carbs and meat.

Me: *Loads 15 lbs of spaghetti on my plate.*

There's no incentive to attain long life in a world ruled by finger-waving church-lady robots.

Deliberately doing the opposite of what the longevity AI says is one way to escape the digital longhouse.

It's very interesting that every time the Biden Crime Family gets more exposed, something big jumps onto the front page of all newspapers to obscure it.

The Navy knew for three days that the sub had been crushed, but let people worry and let the search continue, because that conveniently distracts them from the comically obvious corruption in the White House.

Funny how that works, isn't it.

John, Do you get extra orange checks for those of us who REALLY like what you do? You should suggest it if you do not.

This is an amazing digest. I read many of these and your summaries are really good...sort of like reading a Reader's Digest Condensed Book (I know you do not know what those are, but they were a big thing once upon a time) and discovering that, having previously read the original, one could not figure out what they had cut to condense. But they had. If I could stand to wait, I could just start with your digest and save myself much time. But I don't have it in me. And I count on you to cover the sources I just do not read.

Thanks for doing this. Really of value.

I'm glad you're finding it valuable. I'm not always sure I really do capture the essence of every piece, though ... Don't let my summaries prevent you from reading them!

That was my point...I have generally read those I read (maybe 2/3 of what you report) before you summarize...so my opining that the summaries are pithy and spot-on is informed. That is good enough for me to "trust you" for the others except where you pique my curiosity and I go read them anyway...lol. And here I thought I was reading a lot...

Thank you for clarifying. That's helpful feedback - by which I mean the kind that makes me feel good ;)

Great summary Mr. Carter. Don’t miss why the explainer on why the only way to keep our nukes safe is...to ensure enough trans people are managing them.

Goddamn man, maybe you need to do these a few more times a week :) I think the round up post is getting longer than most of the essays it covers.

On the twists and turns of fighting in Ukraine, and the local forces that be, it reminds me of the Music Man. You can talk, you can talk, you can bicker, you can talk, you can talk talk talk talk bicker bicker bicker -- but ya gotta know the territory

💬 migration is a tool used by imperial systems for internal colonization.

Here’s from wide & deep trove of gems of Rolo’s ↓↓ 💯

🗨 crime is just low-scale guerrilla warfare waged against the host population by hostile minorities

🗨 Populism and Nationalism are as natural as the rain, and are ingrained into the DNA and memeplex of any healthy people.[...] Without homogeneous nations, the wars between countries simply move to the streets and roads of once relatively peaceful communities.

🗨 Populism and Nationalism could just as easily be referred to a “community-building” and “community-defending” respectively.

After an implicit truce through the COVID years, recent events in France, Sweden, Ireland, England, and Germany suggest that the informal guerrilla warfare is back with a vengeance.

Well, that mercenary thing sure fizzled fast. Putin must have cut that guy one big check. Poor bastard will live large for a while until he gets a VX cocktail with a side of polonium.

I've been much appreciating these synopses. I am subscribed to so many sites, it being summer I am not scrolling the inbox so often, it is nice to peruse your list, especially to see deeper into the dissident right.
