Rumsfeldian epistemology.
.
Donald Rumsfeld is famous today as an equestrian prefect of Georgius III Augustus Caesar, Protector of Afghanistan, Regent of Mesopotamia, Suzerain of Europe inter alia ad infinitum by the grace of god the non-denominational.
.
We believe posterity will know him as a great philosopher.
.
Rumsfeld combined insights from Plato (idealism), Kant (pure reason), Lenin (“can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs”) and Göring (“when I hear the word ‘culture’ I reach for my gun.”)
.
KK is when your wife asked you to do the dishes so you do them.
.
KU is when you can’t remember if your wife asked you to do the dishes so you do them anyway.
.
UK is when you forgot your wife asked you to do the dishes.
.
UU is when you open the dishwasher to discover a magic portal and step through it and everyone assumes you’ve fled to Mexico but you’re actually raiding the lost tomb of Shub Niggurath.
.
Naturally we focus on the knowns that are right in front of us.
.
JAE is here to help us with the unknowns.
.
So we can be on the right side of the big surprises.
.
Rumsfeld is also known for some of the best physical training advice ever recorded:
.
“You go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time.”
.
Regarding prisoners of war:
.
“I stand for 8-10 hours a day. Why is standing limited to 4 hours?”
.
Vae victis, SPQA.

🇮🇹. Oggi e domani sarà proiettato nei cinema italiani “Hitler contro Picasso e gli altri. L’ossessione nazista per l’arte”, il documentario evento che ci guida per la prima volta alla scoperta del #DossierGurlitt e dei tesori segreti del #Führer e di #Goering.

Sono trascorsi 80 anni da quando il regime nazista cominciò la razzia - nei musei dei territori occupati e nelle case di collezionisti e di ebrei - di capolavori destinati a occupare gli spazi di quello che #Hitler immaginava come il Louvre di Linz. Si calcola che le opere sequestrate nei musei tedeschi siano state oltre 16.000 e oltre 5 milioni in tutta Europa: Chagall, Monet, Picasso, Matisse, Klee, Kokoschka, Otto Dix, El Lissitzky.

Artisti messi al bando e condannati eppure anche trafugati e sottratti. 🇬🇧. Today and tomorrow Italian cinemas will be screening “Hitler vs Picasso and the others. The Nazi obsession with art”. The documentary event will guide us for the first time through the discovery of the #DossierGurlitt and the #Führer and #Goering's secret treasures.

Eighty years have gone by since the nazi regime started looting museums in the occupied territories and in the homes of Jews and collectors, taking works of art which in Hitler's mind were destined to occupy places such as the Louvre in Linz. It is estimated that over 16.000 works were confiscated in Germany alone and over 5 million in the whole of Europe: Chagall, Monet, Picasso, Matisse, Klee, Kokoschka, Otto Dix, El Lissitzky. These artists were banned and yet their works were stolen and smuggled

The idea of a twin engined heavy fighter that could also operate as a bomber had been around since WWI.
This new heavy fighter would have replaced the heavy and cumbersome bombers that were around at that time.
One of the greatest supporters of this new doctrine was German Ace Pilot Hermann Goering, the future leader of the German Luftwaffe.
Goering would see his wishes come true with the production of the new Bf 110 twin engined fighter nicknamed”Zerstorer” (Destroyer.
The Bf 110 however would prove incredibly inferior to the more manouverable Allied single engined fighters.
Bf 110 losses at Dunkerque and during the Battle of Britain in 1940 were incredibly heavy.
From a fighter escort role, the Bf 110 was relegated to tactical support and ground attack, in which the Zerstorer proved to be effective(also due to its heavy armament).

ERNA GRUHN
A shorthand typist, she married Hitler's Minister of War, Field Marshal Werner von Blomberg. The Fuhrer and Goering were witnesses at the wedding on January 12, 1938. Gruhn was a 26-year-old typist and secretary, but the Berlin police had a long criminal file on her and her mother, a former prostitute. Among the reports was information that in 1932, Erna Gruhn had posed for pornographic photos.[
When the police reported that Erna had worked as a prostitute and had posed for pornographic pictures, Hitler flew into a rage and sacked von Blomberg on the spot. The disgraced Field Marshal and his wife retired to the Bavarian village of Weissee where they lived out the war and where the Field Marshal now lies buried in the local cemetery.
