REPRODUCTION WITHOUT WRITTEN PERMISSION IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED. Does Inspector General Michael Horowitz think he’s been employed as a nn taleb bitcoin attorney or something?
A bombshell report released Thursday by the Justice Department’s inspector general includes new evidence that an FBI agent and an agency lawyer who were having an affair in 2016 were also plotting to keep President Donald Trump from winning the election. In an email on August 8, 2016, Special Agent Peter Strzok reassured Page that she needn’t worry about Trump winning the White House. Trump is ‘not ever going to become president, right? Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote that ‘everal FBI employees who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages,’ but concluded that ‘the conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation. He declared that the IG’s office ‘did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed. The 500-page report also found that then-FBI Director James Comey ‘deviated’ from the standard practices of his agency when dealing with the probe into Hillary Clinton’s classified emails. But IG Michael Horowitz emphasized that Comey was more knuckleheaded than malicious.
While we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part, we nevertheless concluded that by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice,’ the report reads. I’m beginning to notice a certain pattern to the Swamp’s ability to excuse itself from any and all culpability for criminal activity. It’s remarkable how this so-called investigator sounds like a old black community activist lamenting how a few gang-banging knuckleheads ruin it for everyone. And as a result, it’s mostly fake.
One of the most famous and influential psychology studies of all time was based on lies and fakery, a new exposé reveals. The Stanford prison experiment purported to show we are all naturally inclined to abuse positions of power – after volunteers randomly assigned to act as prison guards began abusing volunteer inmates in a mock prison. But now a report from author and scientist Dr Ben Blum claims the research was all a sham. It points to recordings found in archives at Stanford University which show the study’s author Professor Philip Zimbardo encouraged guards to treat inmates poorly. Also, one volunteer prisoner has now admitted to faking a fit of madness that the study reported was driven by the prison’s brutal conditions. The revelations have sent scientists into uproar, with some calling for the experiment and its findings to be wiped from psychology textbooks worldwide. We certainly live in interesting times.
I knew that most “scientific” economics was a fraud, and I’d concluded that all “scientific” evolution was a fraud, but it is clear that the rot begins in physics and goes all the way down through the softest social sciences. The central problem is simple enough, as it is the result of the gap between the theory of scientody and the reality of scientistry. Scientistry doesn’t incentivize or require replication, so no one even bothers trying to replicate the vast majority of studies and experiments. This is an open thread to discuss il Mondiale. I have recently been reading Aristotle to get my head around many of the arguments you make against Jordan Peterson. As such, I am curious about what you see being the difference between acting righteously and virtuously, or are they one and the same to you.
Acting righteously: acting in accordance with God’s Will. Only God can determine this, Man can only make the attempt without full knowledge of whether he is doing so successfully or not. Acting virtuously: acting in accordance with a specified virtue. These are mostly defined and determined by Man, so one can behave virtuously and know that one is doing so, except in the cases where virtue and righteousness happen to overlap. Satanists are cowardly and even a murderous thief can be charitable with his ill-gotten gains. Aristotelian moral virtue falls somewhere in between virtue and righteousness.
It is more akin to what I would describe as eucivicism, or civic virtue. Due to his philosophy being pre-Christian, I tend to be more influenced by Aristotle’s thinking on intellectual virtue than on moral virtue, although eucivicism is definitely desirable from both worldly and philosophical perspectives. Tonight we’re having a Member’s Only Brainstorm to discuss the latest developments in Alt-Movies. I THINK I’ve finally got the time zone thing straight, but regardless, the event will be at 7 PM Eastern time. For those of you who are interested in the subject, we’ll be holding an event that is open to everyone interested in supporting the project next week. Tonight’s meeting is to lay the groundwork for that one, so just be patient. If the UK Home Office is successful in getting Tommy Robinson killed in prison, I suspect they may be more than a little surprised at the consequences.
