The Good Shepherd


I just finished reading The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester.   Here is the sometime soon to be released film adaptation of it

For the most part, I can place scenes in the trailers with what happened in the book.  However, there does seem to be a major change.  It is that Tom Hank’s character’s wife is seemingly loving and supporting.  In the book, this just wasn’t the case.

A few years earlier, they were stationed in San Diego, when the wife decided to leave him for a lawyer.  He was mulling over this during the course of multi-day battle, probably going over it for the hundredth time.  He reasoned that she left him because he spent too much time at sea.  Also perhaps because he was destined to be leaving the Navy after being passed over for promotion.

Perhaps a lawyer was a step up for her, or at least seemed to be at the time.  He was so distraught, that he requested a transfer to the Atlantic to get away from it all.  Since there was now a war on, the Navy retain him and gave him command of a convoy escorting force.  He became a bit of a hero in the story.  Would the ex-wife regret her move?

So this brings up a larger question: why was the story changed here?  Was it to make Tom Hank’s character seem to be more wholesome, as he often plays such characters.  Was it to not cast the ex in a bad light, and maybe women as a whole in a bad light?  Or is there nothing there?

Exit question: Did you notice the high contrast on the wife in the trailer?

    I’ve never read the book (think I might, it sounds good).
    I’m not sure we can come to any real conclusions about the accuracy based on a trailer…but I’d say if the movie doesn’t focus on their relationship it might be because it would be a distraction. A book (the reason I prefer books to movies) can get into the thoughts of the person and the character development is deeper.
    It seems pretty clear to me they are estranged in the trailer.
    “Congratulations on your command” seems a coldly polite statement to me.

    It’s a while since I read the book. As I recall, Commander Krause’s wife traded him in for a new model. He had already been passed over for promotion twice, and the divorce added to his self doubts. Also, he comes into the fight with less combat experience than any of the captains of the escort he commands – and they are all younger than Krause.

    Yes, he was passed over for promotion twice. Move up or move out, though not in times or war. How much was hypergamy and how much was “him not being around”?

    Go to Google Images and look at a photo of Whitmer. Any photo will do, but compare the smiling ones with the serious or angry ones. Cover the bottom of the face and look at the eyes. They’re the same in all the photos, and the reason is that there is nothing there. No warmth, no compassion, no heart, no feeling. This is one spooky woman.

    Russian lawyer update:

    Kicked to the curb. She couldn’t contain her disrespect, spilled out last week, via text.

    She was mad that I wasn’t giving her ‘enough’ attention even though I had just put in a 15hr day of design work. She’s the out of work lawyer pulling in a mid six figure severance.

    She sent me some comment via text and my first thought was HO-LE-SH-III-T did she actually put that down in text! My next thought, Ton had a similar situation with ‘girl#2’, and he escorted her out of the building right then and there, seems like the correct course of action.

    So that’s what I did. Told her ‘bye’ have a nice life.

    Followed by her spam texting (damn lawyers are WORDY!) trying to get me back for two days (over 100 texts!). And then a couple of attempts to suck me back in like nothing happened.

    Monday she even sent a non-apology apology (amazing for a woman lawyer really) wanting to try again…

    I replied to this one, told her, thanks but I’m moving on and blocked her.

    I realized I got sucked into trying to ‘fix’ her problems, and a lot of them were eerily like Crazy’s problems. (A number of red flags, I think I could of handled her as a plate if I wasn’t still dealing with Crazy)

    Damn I got to watch out for that, falling back into old patterns.

    Worst part about all of this, I let this split tail distract me from important things, like help the local restaurant owner get his website and online ordering going! I’m actually ashamed that I allowed myself to be distracted that I forgot a commitment I made to another man.

    Courts open back up next week, hopefully we will get back on the docket, I need to clear the table with Crazy.

After he was seconded as a gunner on Defensively Equipped Merchant Ships, he generally brought grub to the families of British girlfriends….hey he was a kid ;-D Valued presents you that wouldn’t even consider about now; tins ‘borrowed” from damaged crates, cans of BC salmon, bully beef (corned beef), or jam.

From political prisoners of the regime to people who said negative things about China’s government, hundreds of people were executed before the error was discovered.

    “We’re sorry for this error — it was completely unintentional,” said a YouTube representative. “Oops! Haha, boy do we have egg on our faces with this one. Oh well. We’ll do better next time.”

    The algorithm has been fixed, though now it seems to be sending drone strikes against Taiwan.

    Also his father was a good man and a powerful influence on him.

    From the last few pages

    “It was swaying round him. He fumbled at the hood which had hung unbuttoned for so long round his face, and a lucky tug dragged it off. He put his hands to the buttons of the sheepskin coat but he did not succeed in unfastening them. He wanted to sleep. He dropped to his knees by the bunk and put his hands before his face.

    “Dear Jesus.” I

    It was the attitude and the words he had used when he was a child, when the beloved mother so shadowy in his memory had told him about the gentle Christ child to whom a little boy could take his troubles. The sunshine of his childhood was round him. The sun had always shone when he was little. He had been enfolded in love.

    When the sweet mother had faded from his life the dear father had loved him enough for two, the father whose desolate mouth could always smile for him. The dear father; the sun had shone when they went fishing together—the sun had brightened their happiness and their excitement as they took the train to Carquinez Strait to fish for bass and on the very few, the memorable occasions when they hadtaken the ferry across the bay and had places in a boat through the Golden Gate out onto the tossing ocean under the golden sun. He had learned his texts, he had read his Bible for that, because when he knew his texts they could go fishing, and only then; the father was sad when he did not know them.

    Krause forgot the sunshine; his knees were uncomfortable on the steel deck and his face was buried in his hands on the bunk. In a second of returning consciousness he squirmed forward and upward onto the bunk, lying breast downward on it with his face turned to one side. He lay spreadeagled, the sprouting beard disfiguring his dirty face, his mouth a little open, as heavily asleep as if he were dead

    Or this scene

    Middle of dog watch around 4 a.m. on his third day awake after a five hour fight with a U boat.

    “He ate rapidly, with the cold wind from the broken windows of the pilothouse blowing round him.

    Fried eggs might not have been the most convenient things to eat while standing up on a heaving deck, but he did not care, not even when yellow drips fell on his sheepskin coat. He shoveled the potatoes into his mouth with the spoon. He spread jelly on the toast with an egg-smeared knife. He wiped his plate with the last fragment of toast and ate that too.

    Then a third cup of coffee, not swigged down madly like the first two, but drunk more at leisure, savoring it like a true coffee-hound, with the added pleasure of knowing that there was a fourth cup yet to be drunk.

    The pleasure was not even spoiled when a sudden recollection came to him of a duty yet unfulfilled. He bowed his head for a moment. “I thank Thee, O Lord, for all Thy mercies—”

    There had once been a kind and understanding father. Krause was fortunate in that memory; that father had been able to smile at the excusable naughtiness of a little boy even though he led the life of a saint himself. Krause was not harassed by the thought of sin at having forgotten to say his thanks until his meal was nearly completed. That would be understood and forgiven him.

    The letter killeth but the spirit giveth life. Krause’s severest and most unrelenting judge, of whom he went in fear, was Krause himself.”

    Ravenous he forgives himself the minor sin of not thanking his God for a moment of sustenance. During a lull in battle. After the Victor (callsign Eagle) one of the escort under his command has been sunk.

    What would a day look like for a, say, 8 year-old in the third grade? Get up in the morning and your parents take your temperature (schools are to encourage parents to do daily health screenings). Your arrival time at school is within a strict time window and through a monitored entrance so you can’t stop and chat with any friends. Hallways are now marked “one way” so you now are directed on a circuitous route to your classroom. It’s a pretty sparse room – only 16 desks spaced 6 feet apart. To help you remember, the floor is taped off to make sure you stay centered in your space, facing forward. You notice the bookshelves are empty as all shared reading material has been removed. The reading circle is gone. All the puzzles, art supplies and other things your teacher used to bring in so you could have something else to do if you finished your work early are gone, too.

    Above Us the Waves
    In World War II, the greatest threat to the British Navy is the German battleship Tirpitz. Being anchored in a Norwegian fjord, it is impossible to attack it with any chance of success. But the Navy trains a special commando to attack it, using little submarines to plant underwater explosives under it.

    Here’s the real attack that was the base for the film above

    There were many attacks on Tirpitz. The final one was Operation Catechism

    “Operation Catechism,” the final British attack on the German battleship Tirpitz, the Bismarck’s surviving sister ship, took place on 12 November 1944. The ship used her main 38 cm guns against the bombers, which approached the battleship at 09:35, forcing them to temporarily disperse, but did not turn back the attack. 32 Lancaster bombers from Nos. 9 and 617 Squadrons dropped 29 12,000 lb Tallboys on the ship, with two direct hits and one near miss. Other bombs landed within the anti-torpedo net and caused cratering of the seabed, removing most of the sandbank built to keep the ship from capsizing. One bomb penetrated the ship’s deck between turrets Anton and Bruno but failed to explode. A second hit amidships between the aircraft catapult and the funnel and caused severe damage. A large hole was blown in the ship’s side and bottom and that section of belt armor was destroyed. A third bomb may have struck the ship on the port side of turret Caesar The amidships hit caused flooding and increased the port list to between 15 and 20 degrees. In ten minutes the list increased to 30 to 40 degrees and the captain issued the order to abandon ship. Progressive flooding increased the list to 60 degrees by 09:50. Eight minutes later, an explosion rocked turret Caesar. The turret roof and part of the rotating structure were thrown 25 m (82 ft) into the air and over into a group of men swimming to shore. Tirpitz rolled over and buried her superstructure in the sea floor.

    Regarding Minneapolis, fuck the police. They are shitbags who serve the people in power and protect criminals from me.

They look to have straight out murdered that black dude, and I’m sure he did something to iritate them, but that doesn’t make them justified.

    On the other hand, the plains apes never come out to protest whites getting killed by cops. They didn’t give a shit when one of theirs shot an unarmed white woman, so why would I care about some savage of theirs who probably had it coming.

    Thats the real problem. Not police brutality or excessive force, but insufficient force and brutality. They are burning down their own city, and they are too stupid to know what comes next. The riots will continue until there is nothing more to steal or until they get gunned down. The National Guard ought to hunt them down with upgunned humvees and break the back of the riot with overwhelming force.

    I know diversity is the problem, but it can be managed with sufficient violence. Your people managed it for centuries before the Yankees fucked everything up. Fear keeps diversity in line.

    The plains apes are burning Minneapolis. Its not yankee on yankee, more like diversity versus scandicucks too polite to defend themselves. Mostly confined to the shitty parts of town, but it might spread. If it does, a bunch of weak white people dead will stir the rest to action. No great loss, either way.

    KENTON, WA—A gunman was released from police custody on Thursday after it was determined by experts that the people he had shot were victims of COVID-19 and not his psychotic bloodlust-induced blind-firing rage-spree death-binge through downtown Kenton last week with three AR-15’s, seventeen uzis, and one bazooka and zero clothes on. “Our apologies,” said officers as they unlocked the man’s cuffs and let him walk free, snickering and shaking like a lunatic with drool hanging from his chin.

    Specialists from Washington’s capitol quickly determined that the victims were clearly COVID-19 casualties. The local coroner attempted to push back citing the literal pegboard pattern of bullet holes littered about the scene and the bodies of the victims. He was promptly fired. “COVID-19 strikes again. Chalk it up,” said COVID response agent Jonathan Smith.

    The shooter’s identity has been protected since he committed no crime. “If you shoot a bunch of people and it has no effect on them, that’s not a crime. The effect is the crime if you think about it,” explained Governor Inslee. “What we have here is a matter of a guy shooting people who had died a split second before his bullet hit them of a completely different thing. If this man is guilty of anything, it’s incredibly bad timing.”

    Inslee was asked what he would do if the shooter went back on the streets and began firing on citizens again—which he did immediately. “To jump to conclusions about these things is reckless. You can’t immediately link a bunch of bullets to death,” said Inslee. “Especially in a time like this when almost all death is COVID related. This is science denial and if you deny science on my watch, you will face harsh repercussions.”

    In the same way, our young crave “real” because, though in most circles the display is not physical (except for masks) they know they don’t live in a “real” world.

    Those who aren’t stupid might never admit it, but they realized in high school that the teachers who insisted you “question authority” never meant THEIR authority. They realized early on that the same adults who told them to let it all hang out were very careful to only bleat the same opinions as the herd. They realized at some level the party that claims to care for the destitute is filled with millionaires. And they know how much virtue signaling hides florid vice. So they crave “real”.

    I suspect this is part of the left’s obsession with hypocrisy. They KNOW they’re hypocrites. So they need to prove other people are as well, in order to sleep at night

  86. The banned tweet:

    “ ….These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

    Going for the rhyme at the end seems to be the wording in question. But one could also read this, instead of as a threat, as words of wisdom because it’s true that escalating violence will only lead to violence and that there are better ways to protest police brutality than destroying property and looting. What does that do for the cause except reinforce stereotypes some have spent decades trying to overcome? I am so thankful I don’t live in a large city and/or an area where this is happening and my thoughts and prayers are with those who do.

    Part of this story that is really puzzling is apparently the man killed and the police officer knew each other and worked together as bouncers for several years. https://kstp.com/news/george-floyd-fired-officer-overlapped-security-shifts-at-south-minneapolis-club-may-28-2020/5743990/

    All the conspiracy shit is an attempt to deflect from the reality of plains ape lifestyle and social structure. I see people arguing that the first broken window was from a cop and that somehow excuses all of the rioters, looters and arsonists. The people arguing that Soros is responsible for this somehow are trying to shift the blame away from blacks and wilfully ignoring the reality. These are desperate attempts to get white people to ignore the massive problem that these savages inflict upon white civilization. No, the Illuminati, Jews, Clinton, or whoever are not responsible for this, blacks are. Low IQ, high time preference, low self control blacks are rioting, and they wouldn’t be rioting if they were not so stupid, aggressive, shortsighted, and impulsive.

    “ Let me preface this by saying I do not know what to believe. Yes. A man was murdered and that is NEVER ok. NEVER, EVER and I’m so glad the cop was charged with 3rd degree murder. I hope the other cops are charged as accomplices to murder. But, this post has some good points to consider as details continue to unfold. Not looking to debate. Just thoughts to consider is all.

    Food for thought……..written by someone else:

    Could the Floyd event been Staged? 🤔

    These officers were involved with something, I’m not sure exactly what, but something is just not adding up.
    I think there is at the very least the “possibility”, that this was a filmed public execution of a black man by a white cop, with the purpose of creating racial tensions and driving a wedge in the growing group of anti deep state sentiment from comon people, that have already been psychologically traumatized by Covid 19 fears.
    Historically, in election years and in politically contested areas or in groups, racial or gun violence incidents are becoming common place. Considering the rising approval rating of President Trump in the black community, an event like this was unfortunately “Predictable”
    Consider these points and contrast them to every other police brutality incident you’ve ever seen.
    The filmed portion of the incident was about 10 minutes long. In that amount of time, three officers are holding one handcuffed man down. You only know that because of the pictures taken from across the street. You can’t see the other two officers in the video because they are behind the vehicle. During 8 minutes of the entire video, the officer has his knee on George Floyd’s neck, which is not taught or approved by any law enforcement agency.
    Additionally, other than the Asian officer speaking occasionally to the crowd of bystanders, there is no communication from any of the officers to Mr. Floyd. No talking, no shouting. When have you ever seen a police brutality video without police shouting?
    Additionally, the police had no goal. They weren’t trying to subdue him for arrest, he was already handcuffed and all they needed to do, was place him in the back of the car. There is no plausible explanation for taking him to the ground and having three men on top of a handcuffed man, a knee placed on his neck. Mr. Floyd presented no threat and was not resisting. The only goal that there appeared to be was exactly what happened: “To be filmed brutally killing a black man”.
    Think about this, these officers did not care about being filmed, in fact the officer stared into the camera with soulless eyes and an emotionless face, reminiscent of an assassin, as he knowingly killed an American Citizen.
    None of the officers spoke among themselves or did they speak to Mr. Floyd. They did not respond to his pleas for life. They just sat and kneeled on him until he was passed out and then waited an additional 4 minutes after Mr. Floyd lost consciousness to ensure that Mr. Floyd was dead and could not be revived.
    The bystanders are verbally communicating to the officers, that he isn’t breathing. Unlike any other similar incident, you never see the officers getting on police radios. You never see or hear them calling dispatch for backup. No other police units arrive on the scene and strangely enough, the crowd does not seem to grow either.
    The scene does not end until an ambulance arrives and they unceremoniously flop him on a gurney. At no point does anyone in a uniform ever check his vitals. “As if they aren’t remotely curious about the situation they are in” BTW. who called the ambulance and for what reason? Because if the reason was that Mr. Floyd was having a medical issue, they wouldn’t have still been crushing his neck.
    Shortly after the video went viral, a fake Facebook page supposedly belonging to the officer, at the center of the murder appears and pictures are uploaded that say “Stand your Ground” and “Trump 2020”. A picture of the cop with a red ballcap that says “Make America White Again”. A friends list populated with obvious sock accounts and people clearly not his friends. This is the same kind of fake Facebook stunt that happened with a group made to look like support for the men involved with the Ahmed Aubrey case.
    Is it mere coincidence that this happens the week after “race” becomes a major political issue after the Biden “You ain’t Black” gaffe, started to threaten the black vote the Democrats so desperately count on?
    Additionally, there is substantial video evidence to arrest at least one officer now. Why would the local authorities not charge him immediately, unless there was a political advantage not to!
    Is it mere coincidence that this happens right about the exact moment the COVID-19 fear campaign falls apart, and after it has psychologically traumatized the entire country and got everyone at each other’s throats and suicide attempts are spiking? Is it mere coincidence that this happens after the Auhmed Aubrey case… Which somehow eluded the mains”

    Bloom, its possible that it is a staged event, but I didn’t see antifa until well after the riots had started. Normally, they would have been there on standby and would have been sent in as soon as it started to keep it going if this was planned. It looks like this was spontaneous black savagery and parts of the left are taking advantage of the chaos to attack others. Thats why CNN was attacked.

    I don’t know protocol for how these things go. But whatever it is, they should not defer from them. I’m “wild ass guessing” here…but I assume the standard is to put the officer on probation until the investigation is finished. Changing anything due to the response would be very unwise, in my estimation. Giving into the mob mentality is never a good idea.
