Kraken and Cheese to be tried together and alone starting 10/23


I wouldn't be too surprised if one or both speedy trial motions get withdrawn. Otherwise I'll have to set aside some TV time come November.

Ukraines attack on Sevastopol Also Targeted Imprtant Ships Crossing The Black Sea:

Shortly after the cruise missile attacks on Sevastopol, warships are seen escorting 2 Russian Government linked ships across the Black Sea. These ships were likely attacked by Ukrainian maritime drones (USVs) just hours earlier.
Ukraine’s Attack On Sevastopol Also Targeted Important Ships Crossing Black Sea
Two Russian ships, the tanker Yaz and the suspected arms runner Ursa Major, are headed to Istanbul where they will leave the Black Sea. Evidence suggests that, at the same time as the cruise missile attack on Sevastopol, they were targeted by Ukrainian maritime drones.

The first indications of the attack, shared with Naval News, came before 3am local time on September 13. By morning imagery of fierce fires in Sevastopol were coming in, and it soon emerged that two Russian Navy vessels were hit. The cruise missile attack on Sevastopol got world attention. A Russian Navy landing ship and a submarine were damaged, possibly destroyed.

Taking these vessels out of the fight is a significant success for Ukraine. But there is a lot which has been going less reported. Ukraine also attempted to thwart Russia’s vital weapons and military fuel supplies which flow in and out of the Black Sea.

Simultaneously with the cruise missile strike there was an attack by Ukrainian USVs (maritime drones). It is likely that the USVs (uncrewed surface vessels) were targeting key Russian ships sailing across the Black Sea.


The Black Sea may soon become a Ukrainian Lake.

The latest from Ukraine: Ukraine destroyed a $1billion radar

And missile launch site in Crimea last night.




Russian Air defenses are systematically being destroyed in Crimea. It appears it has lost the ability to defend itself from Ukraine's drones and missiles.

Of course, Security Chief General Budanov is not commenting.


Today's memes from the war against Ukraine.




The latest from Ukraine: Ukraine attacked dry docks in Crimea overnight

Damaging a Russian landing ship and a submarine of the type that launches missiles at civilian targets in Ukraine. They may have used missiles rather than drones since the payloads appear to have been large.





Reports are the sub was destroyed. One of only four the russians are using. Elon Musk must be hiding under his desk because putin once told him WW 3 would break out if something like this happened. The transport ship was probably used to transport large amounts of supplies.
Perhaps the most significant thing is that Russia had no air defense guarding the base of its black sea fleet.

If, and it's a big if, Ukraine can keep this up, thay can eliminate the russian navy from this area of the Black Sea.

Famous Clinton political advisor Doug Sosnik was on Michael Smerconish's show this AM

It was worth the listen. Highlights:

1. Pay no attention to national polls. The only polls that matter are NH, NC, GA, PA, WI, MI, NV and AZ.
2. Our politics will become less toxic beginning in 2028. That's when the Baby Boomers will begin to die off.
3. Trump cannot win without a third party candidate in the race.
4. The election will be close and will be decided by people who dislike both Biden and Trump.

New Hurricane Lee variant projection! New England May Be Doomed!

See where Hurricane Lee is headed

Major Hurricane Lee will continue to grow in size after a crucial northward turn midweek which will determine the extent and severity of its impact on the Northeast, New England, Bermuda and Canada.

Lee was a 120-mph, Category 3 hurricane on Monday, located well north of the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico in the Atlantic Ocean. It is expected to weaken, grow in size and speed up after it makes its northward turn in the coming days.

Although it may be weaker, a larger storm has the potential to impact a more widespread area, increasing the likelihood that Lee will affect the Eastern Seaboard – even it’s not in the form of a direct landfall.

“Even as the peak winds come down, the wind field of Lee is going to continue to grow in size,” National Hurricane Center Director Michael Brennan said in a Monday storm briefing. “We could see the tropical storm-force winds expand by 50 to 60 to 70%.”


The hospitals are NOT filling up with Covid patients

The latest figures available are from Aug 27. when 9722 are hospitalized with Covid. Many of those are simply testing positive when they come into the hospital.
By comparison last Jan.6the number of Covid patients was 48200
On January 7, 2022 the number was 159207

And yet our test positivity rate is one of the highest of the Covid era: about 14% (I assume all of these are hospital tests)

The latest from Ukraine:


The Donetsk Int. Airport was the site of a legendary battle in 2014 when Russia began it's Imperialist war.

Last fall and winter Russians tried to encircle Avdiyivka. They are now being driven back as Ukraine advances.

Dr Jha, administration covid spokesman, on the current state of the virus

“Nearly every death is preventable,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, who was until recently President Joe Biden’s top COVID adviser. “We are at a point where almost everybody who’s up to date on their vaccines and gets treated if they have COVID, they rarely end up in the hospital, they almost never die.”

That is also true for most high-risk people, Jha pointed out, including older adults — such as his parents, who are in their 80s — and people whose immune systems are compromised. “Even for most — not all, but most — immunocompromised people, vaccines are actually still quite effective at preventing against serious illness,” he said. “There has been a lot of bad information out there that somehow if you’re immunocompromised that vaccines don’t work.”

That excess deaths have fallen close to zero helps to make this point: If COVID were still a dire threat to large numbers of people, that would show up in the data.
