JCM, you called this one ages ago:

Today's Haftarah (Prophets) reading is from Yeshayahu (Isaiah)

The Artscroll translation of 62:4 is "and your land shall be called 'settled'"

The prophecy has come true, but not in the good sense it will be later.

(Chabad translates it as "inhabited")

Apparenty the author given rights to write another James Bond novel was given a licence to kill the franchise

Latest James Bond novel mocked as woke for having anti-trans, Trump-associated villain

Even the NY Times doesn't like it!

The New York Times opinion columnist Ross Douthat scorched the novel in a piece headlined "How America Made James Bond ‘Woke,’" warning that it juxtaposes a progressive version of the globetrotting spy against a caricature of conservatism, "007 is charged with protecting King Charles III from a dastardly plot hatched by a super villain," Aethelstan of Wessex, who can be described as a "Brexiteer, a right-wing populist, apparently the true and natural heir to Goldfinger and Blofeld."

He goes on to note that Bond, known for womanizing in the past, is in a romantic "situationship" with an immigration lawyer he permits to sleep with other men, and that his mission is that he "must travel to Viktor Orban’s Hungary to infiltrate the vast right-wing conspiracy and avert a terrorist attack at Charles’s coronation."

Douthat lamented it as yet another example of "American-style wokeness" asserting its power throughout the Anglosphere, or countries culturally and linguistically connected to England.

And the next car chase will be in an EV. Ends when Bond's battery runs out.

And I hate it. Being right about this stuff.

What really infuriates me, is everything is right there, in the open, between history and everything the leftist / socialist has written. It is all available.

But when I or anyone else says something like, "they will use public health to go after guns" they are branded a conspiracy nut.

In #8 JCM said: And I hate it. Being right about this stuff.

There is some movie where someone tells someone else "It must be great being right all the time" and her reply is (something like) "No, it is terrible"

We both know how that feels.

and instead of machine guns, Bond will push a button and the car will vomit and menstruate.

Song for our brave new world

Stoned the poor

On slogans such as:

'Wish You Could Hear'

'Love Is All We Need'

Kick Out The Jams'

'Kick Out Your Mother'

'Cut Up Your Friend'

'Screw Up Your Brother or He'll Get You In the End'

'And We Know the Flag of Love is from Above'

'And We Can Force You to Be Free'

'And We Can Force You to Believe'"

And I close my eyes and tighten up my brain

For I once read a book in which the lovers were slain

For they knew not the words of the Free States' refrain

It said:

'I believe in the Power of Good'

'I Believe in the State of Love'

'I Will Fight For the Right to be Right'

'I Will Kill for the Good of the Fight for the Right to be Right'

And I open my eyes to look around

And I see a child laid slain

On the ground

As a love machine lumbers through desolation rows

Ploughing down man, woman, listening to its command

But not hearing anymore

Not hearing anymore

Just the shrieks from the old rich

And I want to believe

In the madness that calls 'Now'

And I want to believe

That a light's shining through
