The Real Threat

The SOP [standard operating procedure] for the military when given a new task is to make a threat assessment. Command wants to know what are the threats that troops will have to deal with to accomplish their mission. For the mission at the border, based on the experience during earlier National Guard deployments, the biggest threat is theft of military equipment by unregulated militias who go to the border in response to caravans.

The military is planning to have troops in place until December 15, but it is unlikely that any significant numbers of asylum seekers will reach the border before January. That makes it even more obvious that this is all about the midterm elections, not national security.

US Clock Change This Weekend

Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time will end in the US tomorrow morning, November 4th at 2AM. It will become 1AM and you get an extra hour of sleep, unless you work the “graveyard shift” or forget.

Most new devices make the change automatically, although many, like my old clock radio, change under the old system and have to be ignored for a couple of weeks.

“Fall back – Spring ahead”
