The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

If you ever watch ABC news...stop. These smarmy worms are blaming President Trump for the Iranian regime's murder of protesters.

Amnesty: At least 106 dead in protests, which Iran disputes [The link goes to outline.com, but if it doesn't work and you must see the ABC report, here it is.]

Absent in the coverage was an acknowledgement of what sparked the demonstrations. The jump in gasoline prices represents yet another burden on Iranians who have suffered through a painful currency collapse, following President Donald Trump's unilateral withdrawal of the United States from Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, and the reimposition of crippling U.S. economic sanctions.
The whole article is a sleazy mess of innuendo and disgusting assumptions; almost as if they are trying to drive the narrative against President Trump!

So using this twisted logic, the Hungarian freedom fighters were responsible for their own murders, as were the Czechs. And the United States was responsible for the millions of deaths in the Pacific, because if we had only allowed the Japanese their oil, everything would have been just marvelous.

It is simply amazing to me that the writers of this shit are so consumed by their hatred of President Trump, and by extension traditional-values America, that they are willing to absolve a murderous dictatorship in Tehran of the murders of its subjects. Oh, let us not forget that the Mullahs and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard were directly responsible for the IEDs that killed and maimed so many of our troops in Iraq and elsewhere. Just for that we should have bombed them into oblivion, but I guess the 4th Estate prefers to support (indirectly ) them rather than condemn them.

The media are traitors to the cause of freedom and liberty in America and around the world, and they are less and less interested in hiding their proclivity for dictators and totalitarianism over our way of life.

15 In a war with Iran, God forbid, first step has to be clearing out their sympathizers in the US. If you don't, as Bush failed to do, of course you're on the path to defeat.

It's not going to come to that, though. The Iranian state is starting to collapse, and neither Russia nor China can come to the rescue. They're more competently run than Venezuela, but they're also under far more military pressure.

Probably are, they just have to be careful with it. I imagine that if you were round up 100 press men at random, you would find that 97-100 of them would rather have the Mullah than our current President.

They may not actually like the Mullahs, but they certainly like them *better* than our guys. Therefore, if our guys takes action that harms them, our guys are wrong and bad and deceitful and evil and awful. Period.

Think it may be more than Trump hatred, though that is a key feature.

Since Obama's presidency there has been a very weird progressive support for Iran. I don't get it, but there are many who see Iran's regime as more legitimate that Trump's presidency, and they are committed to the US supporting Iran's mullahs in any way possible. Over any other country in the ME, including and especially, Israel. It is sick.

83 Regarding the IPA discussion in the last thread, at least one other style developed because of transporting it over long distances: Russian Imperial Stouts. Catherine the Great was a big stout fan but the standard dry Irish Stout, like Guinness, would spoil after being transported unrefrigerated over a not short transit time. Accordingly they created these humongous malt and hop bombs that could endure and produce a high ABV in the process.

88 I'm never surprised to hear leftists blame the US for anything and everything. My husband has a friend whose wife does this often and with astonishing vitriol for the country that accepted her parents as refugees. In her opinion, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were horrific crimes against humanity (but of course her dad, the refugee, hid under the bed rather than out on a uniform in WWII) and American losses would have been preferable. She also blames the US for "allowing" the Germans to commit atrocities and the Holocaust, for surely we could have demanded that all these people come here.

I avoid parties at her home like the plague and insist that the guys should enjoy each other's company without the wives. Today, as a matter of fact, they're lunching together and heading to home depot.

Posted by: Serious Cat at November 21, 2019 11:03 AM (Xqo6t)



The fun part will be the Articles where they say Trump explicitly said no quid pro quo. But because Amb Soldolmon (sp) felt that there was - in large part because there always is in some ways - it is therefore an Article of impeachment because the Ambassador said there was.


I'm beginning to like the idea of impeachment, if for no other reason than to have the Senate call witnesses without restrictions - particularly questions to Vidman on who he spoke to.


Remember, no one knows who he WB is, so calling Eric Ciarmello - is just calling an individual who Vidman spoke to.

Mayor Pete is desperate to get above his current 0% support from blacks:
While talking about systemic racism and his challenge connecting with
black voters, Mayor Pete said, "I care about this because my faith
teaches me that salvation has to do with how I make myself useful to
those who have been excluded, marginalized, and cast aside and oppressed
in society."


Buttigieg is a Marxist, and like Obama ("brother's keeper"!!), he likes to misinterpret scripture in order to coerce Christians into supporting his Marxist ideas.
There's a reason his pastor BIL is not close to Pete. I'm guessing he's seen how shallow Pete's faith is.

There has been a lot of commentary by different Senators and other connected people which put together, indicates that the biggest cause of the holdup was a huge inter-agency fight inside the CIA and the FBI about how much previously classified info (and everything is classified) could or should be made public. Apparently Barr had to step in personally to get this resolved so the process could move forward.

I hope he's wrong too, because our trust in American institutions is at risk

--------

Any trust anyone has for these institutions should be dead.

Even if justice is served (LOL), it doesn't mean the institutions that did these things are fixed. Even if every proven conspirator is locked up, the American government will be just as bottomlessly corrupt as it was the day before because - spoiler alert - the whole thing is corrupt, and it can't be fixed.

152 Biden's increasing cognitive decline broadcast live on network television is painful to watch. He looks confused, as if he's mentally struggling to hold it together. He's stuttering, slurring words, and has difficulty with discussions involving matters of some complexity.

At the rate he's deteriorating it is incomprehensible to me that he could ever finish out a term as president without the 25th Amendment being invoked.

like liquid feces at the American public, no media outlet would cover

True. R's could be creative and get media attention if they wanted to (I'm looking at you McConnell and McCarthy), but of course they don't want to.

I'm with those who have been urging PDT to make some public addresses to the nation (not sure if those would be broadcast by any other network than FOX unless he made it sound very foreboding and did a bait-and-switch) to bypass the Progda Enemedia and enlighten the American people in general as to what's going on.

I din't click your concern troll link but lemme guess: Guy Benson? NeverTrumper curious. The premise of QPQ is entirely false, but they never address or acknowledge that fact. ALL foreign aid is conditioned, so a QPQ is normal. PDJT asked two things: 1) Ukraine would assist Barr in his investigations, if Barr should ask )and he never needed to, so did not) and, 2) Ukraine should itself investigate the corrupt nature of the firing of a prosecutor. Completely unremarkable, in and of itself. Given our long-standing efforts to fight corruption in Ukraine, most people would say Trump was doing the right thing.

Only Guy Benson, the NeverTrumps generally, and the fascist Democrats they travel with would argue the QPQ Trump asked for in those calls was anything other than virtuous and good. One might even fucking call the requests "perfect".

He seems creepy to me too. Sanpaku eyes?

I get the arrogant and angry vibe that Obama gives off when challenged, or like when he publicly insulted people, such as "You're nice enough, Hillary" or when he was in Malaysia (IIRC) and mocked several US governors for not wanting muslim refugees dumped in their state with notification ("scared of 3 year olds?").

159. 0% chance Pete wins the nomination, unless he has a drastic improvement with black voters.

Posted by: Nick in Tallahassee

I think that's probably correct, but it's still an interesting gedanken experiment. It's bound to arise in other circumstances as well, for example if an Hispanic candidate displaces the black favorite.

Just how far is the black community willing to go to maintain their Dem power and the gravy train that goes with it?

==========

What I hope from Buttigieg is that he sticks around long enough to simply sow chaos.

Winning Iowa would be a great first step. Followed by Warren winning NH, and then Biden winning SC.

Maybe Sanders wins NV.

And then it's Super Tuesday (including CA), and there's no frontrunner.

Posted by: Anon at November 21, 2019 11:24 AM (HJjnM)


What I think is that some people are so blind to reality, I like to call these people lawyers, that they can't see what's plainly in front of them, and instead have to go through convoluted picking at minutia to find some nugget of truth that is clear to everyone who isn't a lawyer.

Let me put it this way. If you go out with a gal, and you buy her dinner, maybe some flowers, and hold doors open for her, and scoot in her chair and shit like that, you expect her to sleep with you.

Is that a quid pro quo?

And if she doesn't sleep with you, do you keep taking her out, buying her dinner, scooting in her chair and all that?

NO!!!

People (not lawyers) think that's normal human behavior, and nobody (at least not decent people) never say "if you don't sleep with me, I won't take you to dinner."

The President ONLY deals with third world shitholes, because he wants something. Diplomats deal with third world shitholes because they want something too, it's just not the same thing as Presidents and the American people.

Ask me what the difference is, and I'll tell you.

If one-fifth of the Senate requests a public vote, there's a public vote.

Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such Parts as may in their Judgment require Secrecy; and the Yeas and Nays of the Members of either House on any question shall, at the Desire of one fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I think the statute reads 'aid and comfort to the enemy IN A TIME OF WAR'
Congress has not voted to declare war on Iran, nor to my knowledge has the 'war on terrorism' been brought to a conclusion. The term 'war on terror' was too damned nebulous to be of any value. One could rationally make the argument that Iran, being the #1 state sponsor of terrorism in the world, is a legitimate target in the war on terrorism. The best thing for the Iranians is to get some support from the US for those 'dissidents' to overthrow the mullahs. We should absolutely stand aside and not let anyone else interfere (UN) and let the Iranians dictate the proper punishment for those that are being overthrown.

Arguing about this stuff is like arguing about who is going to be the next champion in professional wrassling.

It's all fake.

The script is already written.

As everyone speculates how it's gonna play out, they're watching polls. We already know the House is going to vote to impeach. We (really, we do) know the Senate is not going to convict.

The only real questions is, what does the audience do in November of next year. That's what the scriptwriters don't know yet, but like pro wrassling, they're counting on their audience to be dumb and dirt. They expect whatever outcome there is in November, it'll be predictable, based on this script. The one they have already written.

Bellini is his contemporary. He's from the Venetian correspondence school of the Italian Renaissance and is thought to have helped develop that style's emphasis on color.

110 I find many of the figures in Bellini's paintings to be a bit stiff. Not uncommon for the period. But his ability to use color, whether brilliant or muted, and the level of detail used (look at this figure's cloak) makes him stand out. While it doesn't apply to this work, Bellini can portray an effective sense of proportion and distance.

All these Ukraine experts are going up there and saying "I have never heard such a thing!" or "that's a conspiracy theory!" yet it was in the New York Times (!) that:

Two Ukrainian officials meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election by leaking a secret ledger showing $12.7 million in payments between Ukraine's ousted pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych and Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a Ukrainian court said Wednesday.

The Kyiv district court ruled that National Anti-Corruption Bureau Director Artem Sytnyk and legislator Serhiy Leshchenko broke the law by revealing that Manafort's name and signature appeared on the ledger.

Hey Jack can you clarify something for me. I was watching NBC news (monitoring unfriendly coms) and they said basically that Sondman dropped a bombshell that there was Quid pro quo cause he was on a call and PDT said gimme QPQ and Lester pretty much left it at that.


But I thought I heard that there was no occurrence of a phone call with Sondman alone and that the call he was referencing was a group call or some such thing and others on the call basically said Nah Bro no QPQ.
So what's the deal with Sondman's "Bombshell" is this another one of those things where words are said to him and he assumes QPQ despite the words being no QPQ?

That was an interesting link. It looked as if some of the missiles were actually directed back at their launch point.
I thought those missiles were unguided bottle rockets because that's all the Palis can manage, but it does seem that some are actually more advanced (but not advanced enough for the crafty Joos). This has to be embarrassing for the Russkis.

351 My fish wrap published a looooong letter from Stacey Abrams this morning.

Some highlights:

"The changing demographics of our country suggest that once out-of-reach Sun Belt states as Arizona and Texas are now within range of Democratic victory.

and this:

"Here in Georgia, our rapidly diversifying population includes the youngest and most heavily African American population of any battleground state.....Among newcomers to the state, who are many, Democrats outperform Republicans by a 30-point margin."

Then she goes on to say the majority of people in Georgia support abortion, which I believe to be an outright lie.

And she whines about "voter suppression" because our Sec. of State is cleaning out the voter rolls of dead and inactive voters.


Then, she finishes with this:

"I advocated strongly for a Democratic debate to come to Georgia because this is where the fight for our nation will be lost and won, and I am confident the eventual ticket will have Georgia on its mind."

It appear the IDF has hacked the F35s they bought from us to make Syrian
(russian) missiles forget where they are going and fall to the ground.

That was an interesting link. It looked as if some of the missiles were actually directed back at their launch point.
I thought those missiles were unguided bottle rockets because that's all the Palis can manage, but it does seem that some are actually more advanced (but not advanced enough for the crafty Joos). This has to be embarrassing for the Russkis.

384 "Am I supposed to know who this guy is? And why he's dressed so ridiculously?" As others have noted, Leonardo Loredan was the 75th doge of Venice, serving between 1501 and 1521. The "ridiculous" headpiece was the corno, or crown, worn by the doge as a symbol of his office. It was made of cotton, which, in those days, was a rare and expensive fabric. Loredan was not a great doge, and the period of his rule was marked by the Wars of the League of Cambrai, one of the low points in Venice's history.

Speaking of art history, John Julius Norwich, in his History of Venice (which is a terrific read), tells a story about the painter Gentile Bellini, Giovanni's younger brother. It seems that Gentile was hired to serve as court painter to the court of the Turkish sulvan Mehmet II. One day, Mehmet criticized Gentile's painting of the beheading of John the Baptist: he claimed that the beheading was rendered inaccurately; and to demonstrate his point, Mehmet had a slave seized and beheaded on the spot, to demonstrate what a beheading really looked like. Art, like politics, was a rougher business in those days.

I think it's a bit worse. If you look at the background of these people and hear their testimony it's obvious they are far left operatives.

Fiona Hill used to be on Soros' payroll. She is not the "non-partisan" she pretends to be and neither are most of the rest of them. They are a shadow government that believes it, not the duly elected representative of the people, are the people who run our foreign policy.

I hope this does go to the Senate and real hearings with Trump witnesses are called. I'm pretty sure we will hear a completely different take on what happened.

Election process for the Doge of Venice:

"Thirty members of the Great Council, chosen by lot, were reduced by lot to nine; the nine chose forty and the forty were reduced by lot to twelve, who chose twenty-five. The twenty-five were reduced by lot to nine and the nine elected forty-five. Then the forty-five were once more reduced by lot to eleven, and the eleven finally chose the forty-one who actually elected the doge. None could be elected but by at least twenty-five votes out of forty-one, nine votes out of eleven or twelve, or seven votes out of nine electors."

Thank you for that - now I see, the analysis is based on the video evidence. Of course the Israeli's have worked on their jamming technology, but there's also other explanations. In previous conflicts, it's been reported that the Syrian operators of these systems shut down their radar guidance systems immediately after launch, to keep from getting hit by return HARM fire; in other cases, the Syrians have been known to never turn their guidance radars on at all, preferring to instead just to look good by shooting off missiles, and then blaming faulty missiles when they go every which way.

Now the Millennials, who are from another planet in many ways are ignoring us and going after boomers. Aren't boomers in there 60s and 70s?

i guess we are supposed to just eat popcorn. But I can't do it, I want to come back at Millennials. But they have been crapped on a lot so there is that. I guess I am glad they simply ignore us X'ers. We hate pc more than boomers and way way more than Millenials*

Looking through the 2020 Senate races, it seems like a best case scenario is R+5.



Flipping AL, MI, MN, NH, and NM while keeping CO, NC, and AZ.



That's not going to happen. I can imagine winning MI but MN seems
like a stretch. NH, maybe if we're lucky, and NM if the Democratic
candidate is terrible (since Udall is retiring).



Still, it's nice to imagine what the next SCOTUS fight would be with 58 Republican senators and needing only 50.

But China drinks a crap load of beer. I would not be surprised if they drank more beer than any other country. The russians drink a lot as well, I was going to swear but let it go. People don't realize how much beer the Russians drink. Europe is the same. You think many of these countries are drinking wine,. But even in France and Spain, they mainly drink a ton of beer in bars.

I disagree. It's all about recruiting and supporting good candidates, which is where the Kentucky and La. governor's races went wrong. Governor Abbott wins in Texas in large part because he has a strong outreach and support among the Hispanic community, especially the devout Catholics. (see the bio of Cecile Abbott) Strong statewide GOP candidates in Texas will need that appeal, they can't just be Anglo only, but Abbott shows that it's possible. In fact, he makes it look easy.

540 In Texas, the racial calculus of elections is something people feel nervous about talking about, but it controls everything. What successful GOP candidates statewide put together has been, for the last several elections, about 80% of the Anglo vote, and 40% of the Hispanic vote. That is enough to add up to around 55% - 60% of the total vote, and if a candidate gets that, then the black vote becomes irrelevant.

Posted by: Tom Servo at November 21, 2019 11:14 AM (Kpl3J)

541 To be clear, i was talking total consumption, not per capita. We all know the Czechs, Hungarians, Germans, and English drink the most beer per capita. But what I learned by traveling is the beer drinking world is much larger than you would expect. I wanted to find sherry drinker in Spain but mainly found cheap beer drinkers. I wanted the French to drink red wine all the time. Maybe they do drink wine with meals, but at bars, they drink a lot of beer.

The hottest micro beer country in Western Europe is Italy of all places. Of course they drink wine,but they drink a lot of beer too. And they are making world class micro beers unlike the French and the Spanish.

there was a time when a Texas Latino or Tejano was much more culturally conservative than a Californian or New York Latino. I think that is not as true as it once was. In fact I am sure of it. They are not the same but the difference is not as large as it was in the 70s and 80s.

The Morning Report - 11/21/19

blumsond.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and as the sham-peachment rolls on, the big news coming out yesterday was EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland's blockbuster testimony wherein he stated in response to Schiff-for-Brains, and I'm paraphrasing, that yes he believed that Trump did ask for some sort of quid pro quo with regards to aid money for Ukraine. Aside from the fact that the past few days of testimony of the Dems' own witnesses shot quid pro quo to hell and they then went on to bribery and extortion, that was enough for Schiff-for-Brains to halt the proceedings on the pretext of a bathroom break to dash out into the hallway where a gaggle of propagandists had their microphones and cameras rolling:

"The veneer has been torn away... This is a seminal moment in our investigation."

And the agitprop media went wild. Except when the Republicans started grilling him, he was forced to whistle a very different tune - namely the whole truth.

...Ambassador Sondland admitted that his conclusion tying the release of the withheld security aid to Ukraine to "some kind of action on the public statement that we had been discussing for many weeks" was only his own presumption, supported by no direct evidence. He conceded, in response to a question from Republican Rep. Mike Turner, that nobody told him that President Trump linked the Ukraine aid to a Biden investigation. "No one on this planet told you that President Trump was tying aid to investigations. Yes or no?" Rep. Turner asked. Sondland replied: "Yes." In a follow-up question, Rep. Turner asked, "So you really have no testimony here today that ties President Trump to a scheme to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for these investigations?" Ambassador Sondland replied, "Other than my own presumption." At another point in his testimony, the ambassador downgraded his "presumption" of a quid pro quo to "my own personal guess...

CNN actually had to change it's chyron of "Trump About to Be Arrested" almost in mid-sentence of Sondland's damning statement. But the real killer-diller here is Sondland recalled a meeting he had with Trump wherein the President specifically and unequivocally declared:

"I WANT NOTHING! I WANT NOTHING! I WANT NO QUID PRO QUO! TELL PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO DO THE RIGHT THING!"

Jim Jordan, whose head I fully expect to explode at any moment over all the outrageousness of this madness, wanted to know why, in G-d's name, in Sondland's entire 23-page statement about the incident was this conversation - which is exculpatory in the extreme and completely exonerates Trump over anything he is being accused of vis a vis quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, picking his feet in Poughkeepsie, etc. - omitted from his testimony? And Sondland said, get this, there wasn't enough room in his report to include it. If I were Jim Jordan, I'd have leaped over the lectern, ripped Sondland's arms from his body and beaten Schiff-for-Brains to death with them (rhetorically speaking).

But, no matter. Schiff-for-Brains finally got a shred of an iota of a fig leaf of an excuse to declare he's got the goods on Trump and so as we speak the articles of impeachment are being drafted based on Sondland's testimony, minus the aforementioned of course. The Democrats are already attempting to spin all of this but of course are omitting, as is their wont when facts get in the way of the meme, the context around the conversations between Trump, Zelensky and all the players involved. Zelensky was elected to root out and end rampant corruption in his country from the previous administration. That gang of crooks it should be noted were up to their eyeballs in it and it involved the Bidens, Clinton, Obama and others that along with run of the mill goniffing of millions, players in that nation were part of the Russian collusion myth/plot to sabotage Trump in 2016. All Trump was trying to do was ensure that any aid going to Ukraine would not end up stolen and or pissed away as it was under both presidents' predecessors. That my friends is the kind of smart and 100% legal statecraft which is part of the platform Trump ran and won on. Devin Nunes, G-d bless him, was attempting to bring up this very issue and put things in context as well, citing a witness (can't recall his name, dammit!) who gave a sworn deposition to what I just related and that would've blown a hole the size of a $150 billion dollar pallet of case into Sondland's entire testimony. But of course Schiff-for-Brains would not allow him to testify.

My gut tells me that, like everything else, this too shall explode in their faces. Look, they are going to have a vote on impeachment no matter what happens and of course it will pass, but along strict party lines. Even after yesterday, the people are sick to death of this garbage because they are recognizing more and more that it is indeed an attempt to illegally oust Trump. Plus, if/when this gets to the Senate, the whole thing will bust wide open with witnesses that the Dems are desperate not to be called because it will not only debunk their case against Trump, it will reveal the original plot to overthrow him and put all sorts of people in the spotlight and jeopardy, at least in theory. Plus there is Horowitz and Durham, but AG Barr gave a speech the other day that only hints at his fury at the Democrats.

Lastly, it should be noted that Gordon Sondland and his wife have received threats and intimidation, as well as organized protests at some of the hotels that they own. In the center of this is a Democrat Congressman from Antifa City USA, aka Portland Oregon named Earl Blumenauer who openly called for boycotts, and then later emitted the not-so cryptic Tweet "Welcome to the Resistance." The Left went out of its mind with rage when Trump let out a Tweet about Masha Potatovich (Maria Yovanovytch) which was an absolute nothing-burger compared to this, which is bust-out in-your-face witness intimidation. Could that account for Sondland's behavior and the omission of the exculpatory evidence from his 23-page statement and his responses to Schiff-for-Brains? Well, given all we have seen from intimidating people in restaurants to doxxing personal information, to bike locks in the head to gunning down Republicans at a softball practice, I'd say it's a possibility.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

33 If Peter Buttigieg gets to become President I expect he will try to revoke the tax exempt status of churches which don't support gay marriage.

He's an intelligent guy (Not about that;,But he's well spoken and sharp) He will know well enough to play the gay card if attacked by Trump (and Trump does not have a problem with gay marriage), but will try to appear a little more centrist to the people that would appeal to. He would appear to be the more moderate candidate if he gets picked by Warren for VP

Big Dem donor as is his firm and most of his partners and really doesn't care for PDT much.

Not content with condemning its attacks in Syria as destabilizing, Russias Foreign Ministry this week decided to embarrass Israel, revealing information about four alleged IDF attacks in the past 10 days even saying it used Jordanian airspace to carry out one of them.

If the Dems are honest with themselves, they will rig it for Biden to be the one to lose bigly to Trump, and thereby be able to say "see? The old Democrat Party is dead and we need to go full Leftist."

BUT... if they really do believe their own Kool-Aid, they will nominate Lizzy Hekawi or some other full on freak and then get totally blown out the water, and their Marxsm repudiated by the electorate.

if anyone asked for my advice, I would say go with HIllsdale, the miltary academies and a select few private and state schools. There are the usual suspects but they are getting smaller every decade.

You send your kid and money to a random state school. Then you are not only wasting your money, you are putting it to bad in this day and age. I can't believe I am saying this as in my day and individual was never defined politically or philosophically by his teachers and classmates. I enjoyed mixing it up with teachers and they did not punish me for my beliefs. They might have, but I would never accept that weak position. I really feel badly for kids these days.

I say think long and hard about what you want from a given college and how you expect to get it. Don't just go to go and don't send your kids to assimilation camp unless they are ready to fight for their beliefs.

Definitely.
Look, the guy has likely been teased about his name since he started grade school. It's unoriginal, and it is easily turned into proof of one's own "homophobia."

He's a red diaper baby Marxist, he's got all kinds of swampy connections, including being a (Soros-funded) Aspen Institute fellow and on the board of the (Ploughshares-funded*) Truman Project. He's also friends with Zuckerberg from their time at Harvard, worked at McKinsey (very swampy) and former Defense Secretary Cohen's National Security consulting firm.

You want to rip Buttigeig, rip him for the many ways he is Obama 2.0. Another trojan horse open society/one world order Marxist dressed up as an awe-shucks Mid-Western mayor and First Gay Prezzy!!

152 I still more-than-half-believe this is all a trap set by Trump. Consider:

(1) The collusion between the Democrats and Ukraine has been noted here as far back as maybe two years go. It's been front-page news in Ukraine.

(2) Trump has been and probably continues to be surrounded by #Resistance moles since he took office.

(3) Trump's conversations with Zelensky were "perfect" -- that is, there wasn't so much as an inadvertent gaffe or errant phrase that could be even unreasonably interpreted as untoward.

(4) The idea of impeachment is like catnip laced with heroin to the Left. They can't leave it alone even if their very survival depended on it.

It's the third one that has me scratching my head. It was too perfect. The other thing is that, if this is all part of Trump's plan, to have the Democrats' shenanigans exposed in such a way that the even American news media can't ignore it, the plan is so simple that it could work.

Just look at what black ministers have had to confront. Prop 8 in California, and also the wicked Planned Parenthood/abortionists who purposely place their clinics in their communities.

I'll never forget when the Smithsonian did an exhibit on Civil Rights leaders they included a bust of Margaret Sanger. A bunch of black minister wrote to the museum requesting that they remove it, as her contribution to the black community is KILLING black babies. They refused. A group of ministers (30 or so) then staged a protest outside of the museum. Still didn't remove it and the only media outlets that even covered it were religious/pro-life oriented.

I imagine they are quite sick of these progressive vipers using their community to prop up their own cause, such as likening gay marriage to black civil rights, and claiming PP is providing "care" to young women.

Volunteering at the polls in 2012, I helped an older black lady with the machine. As I go through the basic instructions on what to do, she interrupts me.

"How do I vote for Barack Obama?"

"Well, let's go to the first screen, and if you press that button..."

"Okay. I'm done."

194 I'll never forget when the Smithsonian did an exhibit on Civil Rights leaders they included a bust of Margaret Sanger. A bunch of black minister wrote to the museum requesting that they remove it, as her contribution to the black community is KILLING black babies. They refused. A group of ministers (30 or so) then staged a protest outside of the museum. Still didn't remove it and the only media outlets that even covered it were religious/pro-life oriented.

I imagine they are quite sick of these progressive vipers using their community to prop up their own cause, such as likening gay marriage to black civil rights, and claiming PP is providing "care" to young women.
Posted by: Lizzy at November 21, 2019 08:01 AM (bDqIh)

===========

Palin is probably the best example of a VP candidate pulling voters on her own, but I imagine that those voters would come out to be a rounding error against the 100+ million people who voted in the election. People who either wouldn't have voted at all or voted for another ticket in that case.

I'd be interested in seeing some kind of numbers around it, but it would be impossible to do that retrospectively. You'd have to collect the data (unreliable data, by the way) at each election for a few decades before the numbers would say anything of substance.

But I lean towards VP candidates don't move the needle materially. So, no matter who the VP candidate on a Buttigieg or Warren ticket, they're not going to help the black vote any more than running the two on the same ticket would do to hurt the numbers.

276 The story about the British lady denied entry to the US is especially vexing. It seems "transgender activists", ie obsessive and dangerous mentally ill people, filed fake criminal complaints against the woman (in the UK) and those prompted an automatic denial in some database the US uses to determine worthiness to enter the country. She was traveling to Orlando to present a petition to Disney.

316 A few things: The Democrats say that Trump saying to Sondland on September 9th that he wanted nothing from Ukraine, etc., came after the leaker's "whistleblower" complaint became public, so that Trump's statement was a lie. The Democrats also say that the release of the aid to Ukraine on September 11th without conditions only happened because Trump "got caught."

The Republicans, in my view, have not adequately refuted these two Democrat claims. They need to explain how and why the aid got released.

Finally, Ohio Congressman Mike Turner blew a huge opportunity. He should have asked Sondland whether his opening statement that yes, there was a quid pro quo and that everyone was in the loop, was a lie. He also should have asked whether everyone who was in the loop also presumed that there was a quid pro quo, and if yes, whether he was a mind reader.

317 309 I've mentioned this before, but the thing that concerns me most, especially if Biden somehow, with the aid of modern medical science, a lickspittle media, a vast vote-fraud machine, and reliable yellow-dog democrats, does win, is that there is a non-zero chance that the VP will become President, because he won't make it through his first term.

That's not an invalid concern.

But then Biden needs to be the one to actually get them across the line, and Biden undoes a lot of the attacks the left wants to use against Trump.

Problematic with women?
We have a tape of Trump saying something that sounds bad, but we have lots of pictures of Biden doing things that look bad.

Corrupt?
This Ukraine thing isn't coming from nowhere.

Old? White? Male?
Check. Check. Check.

Nominating him would be saying that the Left is giving up some of its favorite weapons in the hope that Biden can appeal to voters the Democratic Party has actively shit on for years now.

I mean, I know that florid prose and namecalling is basically Sefton's schtick. But maybe if we want to encourage good behavior (like calling out the worst excesses of the Democratic party) we should treat those who behave well, well.

She reminds me of that fat black woman who used to be on the View, who kept getting fatter each day, and the producers kept having to have her chair reinforced because she was so heavy they were afraid she'd sit on it and break it, and her blubbery butt cheeks kept growing bigger and bigger and overflowing the sides of the chair. Eventually she had that gastric bypass surgery that fat Al Sharpton had, and she lost some of the weight, but for a while there it looked like she was just going to keep eating until she exploded.

332 >>I really worry the biggest obstacle to Trump being re-elected is incompetence and apathy.

You should worry more about bad candidates which was apparently the case in both Kentucky and Louisiana.

The down ballot races in Kentucky went big for Republicans across the board and it was well know the governor was one of the most unpopular in the country. And Republican governors in Kentucky are more the exception than the rule and they have a bad habit of not getting reelected. In Louisiana we apparently had a similarly unlikeable candidate. Bad candidates are not indicative of anything other than they are bad candidates.

VA has been drifting left for years thanks to it's proximity to DC. Virginia has gotten rich off big government and they are not going to walk away from it without a fight.

Trump can move votes. He has proven that over and over again. But he can't magically make bad candidates good and he is not going to win in deep blue states which is exactly what VA is turning into.

That's a linear view and close to the Concern Troll demarcation. I'll look beyond the general comity remarks and pathos pleas to policy prescriptions and belief on the proper role for government. That's before I get to essential views on the Constitution. Tulsi fails on all those very important measures. She accepts most of the Democratic platform on limiting individual rights, despotic government, punitive taxation, corruption of the courts and a general tyranny of a majority to enforce it.

Never, ever, will I or many people accept that.

You let me know when a Democrat shows up who respects the Constitution and individual liberty, but simply differs on the how we approach those issues. I think we'll wait a long time for that. Maybe never.

I kinda agree with this. some will call it eeyoring but they would be wrong. The R get out the vote strategy DOES have to get a lot better. The Dems are basically not going to allow a former Dem voter or union member not to vote. They will go after you at work, and your home wherever. They drive people in vans during working hours to vote. They will do anything to win. Repubs usually just expect everyone to spontaneously show up. For most that IS enough, it is called being normal. But these are not normal times. You have to get every vote and leave none by the wayside.

And don't get me started on the lack of Republican poll watchers.

386 367 Up next: Feminist reboot of "The Producers".
Posted by: klaftern at November 21, 2019 08:47 AM (RuIsu)

=========

Where the female producers sell their bodies to lonely old men?

That seems...problematic...

Tangent:

Race switching rolls has become de rigeur, obviously, but one franchise that did it that I've never heard a complaint about is Rocky. After six movies and a realization that a 70 year old man shouldn't be boxing, they continued to series by following Apollo Creed's son in Creed and Creed II.

I've never seen a complaint that it should have followed Rocky's kid.

It makes perfect sense in the films. They handle it really well, essentially handing a franchise about a white guy to black people, and everyone seems happy with it.

I don't not this disapprovingly. It's just interesting that audiences are supportive of the race switching when it, you know, makes sense.

In 2016, Trump had one part-time campaign staff and that person got yanked before the election and sent elsewhere.

He already has 19 people on the ground in Minnesota, a state he narrowly lost and is poised to do well in 2020.

If you want to get some good on the ground information of what the Trump campaign and the RNC are doing follow Brad Parscale's twitter. After virtually every rally he posts the voter data they are gathering which shows a surprising number of registered Democrats showing up at his rallies including in places like Minnesota.

Trump won in 2016 without any significant help from the RNC and had a very poor GOTV ground game, but he still won.


He will not be in the same position this time as his campaign is already ramping up for next year and they will have the resources of the RNC added to that this time. Plus he doesn't really have to spend much for the Primary as he will be the only one on the ballot in most States, so he can save all of those sweet donations on the general.

Wrong. GOP increased its vote total by 45% over the 2015 race, or 208,000 votes. The Democrats grew theirs by 127,000 votes. The GOP won the GOTP by a substantial margin.
In Louisiana, the governors race was lost on registration differences, particularly in NOLA and Baton Rouge parishes. AA voters were comfortable with Bel Edwards. He won with their support. Compare the parish maps: The GOP won parishes they've never won before. Rome wasn't built in a day.

But losing a landslide in Virgina, a formerly red state, losing in KY, and losing in LA is not a good sign and it can not be explained away.
The president put a lot into KY and LA. Could he have been more clear about the stakes and how it was portrayed as a referendum? He told them this!
There are only a tiny handful of states that everyone saw were moving right before 2016. LA and KY, along with WV and probably OH were four of the five as I remember. Again,. I am not talking 2016, I am talking over the last ten years or so.

It sucks when we can't get the governorship in LA and KY. It could have been specific personalities but so what? We have seen that before. Do I need to go down the list? There are always personalities. Remember the woman they said was a witch?

Have you considered that this might be the intent rather than collateral damage?

Why would an utterly corrupt politician want to have their cartel partners have to pay taxes, work in a regulated environment and be under the scrutiny of a wealth of OSHA, EEOC, IRS, FDA inspectors and auditors?

By running their operations in the government forests, the cartels can have the government act as volunteer agents to keep interlopers out of their fields and camps.

530 All should look closely at what actually happened in Louisiana - in the early stages, Ralph Abraham was the leading candidate. Rispone jumped in, backed by $10 million of spending of his own money (HUGE in a market like Louisiana) and he launched a widespread, nasty attack campaign against Abraham. Result of the first election; Edwards (D) 47%, Rispone, (R) 27%, Abraham (R) 24%.

Only a small fraction of Abraham supporters needed to drop out to kill Rispone's chances in the runoff, and that's what happened. Meanwhile, on the dem side, the Black party organizers in Baton Rouge and New Orleans went all out saturating black media and black voters with the message that Eddie Rispone would be coming after them if he got elected, so they turned out in great numbers.

a significant number of republican voters were motivated to stay home, and an even bigger number of black voters were motivated to show up. that's what happened in Louisiana.

Related, three cheers for TuCa last night. He called out Lindsey Graham, who made one of his infamous hollow promises while a guest on Hannity back in January that the nexus between the DOJ and CNN in the Roger Stone police state action would be investigated. Of course, the last federal officeholder blackmailed for homosexuality by the Deep Police State has done nothing. TuCa pointed out Graham acts half-serious when he faces a primary challenge but in the end does squat.

544 454, Thanks for going an actually looking at the data rather than opinion. Generally down ballot races in a state are more indicative of party strength as voters know less about the candidates and vote for many solely on Party Id.

A news story that I read somewhere else indicated that total GOP voters in VA leg. races were 60,000 plurality over Dems but the judicially ordered gerrymander of the state leg. resulted in a number of Republicans not running in the new districts.

In LA, and KY, both governors were incumbents, Bel Edwards had positive evaluations for the most part while Bevan did not. Edwards benefitted from the untried Rep. candidate while Bevan faced a Dem AG whose father was a previously well liked governor.

Bel Edwards raised taxes which probably hurt him to some extent but a lot of that was blamed on previous governor Rep. Bobby Jindal who had the state in a hole fiscally when he left office.

The point is that most people can identify their governor and their president and evaluate them based on different criteria than simply partisan id.

One of the issues that has always been a problem when you mobilize either new voters or voters that rarely vote, they will not necessarily follow a party ticket. For that reason, both parties tend to shy away from mobilizing these voters. Both parties have apparatchiks that fill their ranks in office that are essentially run by the party bosses and donors.

Parties for that reason want predictability-bland inoffensive candidates that "look" the part. They also only want to mobilize voters that are predictable party line voters.

Non-traditional candidates, like Trump, are often required to build their own brand as the regular party folks resent being pushed aside and not consulted (or paid). The voters that these campaigns get often do not vote party line on other races. Thus, the party and bland generic drones in office do not appreciate the "new" voters brought in by the non-traditional campaigns. This is one of the reasons that the GOP does not seriously contest any urban offices because they do not want an exciting race to bring more Dems to the polls for other races, even if they would vote that a particular GOP candidate in one office.

Two Ukrainian officials meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election by leaking a secret ledger showing $12.7 million in payments between Ukraine's ousted pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych and Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a Ukrainian court said Wednesday.

The Kyiv district court ruled that National Anti-Corruption Bureau Director Artem Sytnyk and legislator Serhiy Leshchenko broke the law by revealing that Manafort's name and signature appeared on the ledger.

597 Virginia looks like a lab experiment in NeverTrump Republicanism. When you run Ed Gillespie the Washington Jonah Goldberg's get awfully excited but the downstate GOP voters seemed to yawn. Maybe run someone who wants to make blackface an issue, or talk about infanticide. Ask AA voters in Richmond how excited they are about Margaret Sanger replacing Patrick Henry as the patron saint of the Commonwealth.

599 I remember when Scott Brown was going to be the no vote to kill Obamacare before the Dems did an end round around the constitution and then he proceeded to behave like just about every other squishy rino senator and no one was that shocked he lost. And then wanted him to go away when he tried pulling that carpetbagging shit that apparently liberal Massachusetts republicans are fond of doing.

I missed where he was the future, because he was very much the GOPe's present.

It all boils down to education. What the heck is Betsy Devos (s?) doing?
Even though Desantis did away with that bs called common core, the
schools are still using it in FL! Teach your young and adult children
the reasons why they MUST homeschool their children. Also, demographics.
Conservatives must have more kids and homeschool them. Also, break the
teachers and other public unions. They are destroying our country and
kids. Liars all. Dont get me started on universities.

604 The thing I'm concerned about is that the Senate isn't such a lock to act sanely and within normal court procedure (remember it will be Roberts who will preside and like all judges allow or deny testimony. And Roberts already is involved as he is the supervisor of the FISA court/judges) and not manage to arrive at a the 2/3d's majority against Trump. It's not a lock in the Senate. There are too many RINOS, Globalists and NeverTrumpers to take things for granted.

Yes 67 is huge but it could be possible given the bendiness of the Senators.

Wednesday Overnight Open Thread (11/20/19) I Forgot There Was A Debate Tonight Edition

rise-shine-20151106-13.jpg

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

"Almost everyone involved in public-policy debates agrees that it would be good if the federal government could collect more revenue without raising tax rates or reducing tax deductions or credits. It should be indisputable that investment to make sure all citizens meet their tax obligations is desirable."
The National Bureau of Economic
Research


Quote II

“You all seem to have forgotten that Jeffrey Epstein, the offense for which he was charged and for which he was imprisoned, was for soliciting prostitution from minors. That is not the same thing as pedophilia,” Lady Colin Campbell


Quote III

“If we distribute a bunch of stuff that’s frozen or from the refrigerator and cold, what are people going to do with it? Take it home and not have anywhere to put it?” Beth Stanton


Quote IV

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of the pet involved in this incident. We take this matter very seriously and are working directly with those involved to determine the circumstances behind this event. Based on the outcome of our investigation, we will take the appropriate action.” FedEx

Truth or fiction? The sad fact is that it is so believable.

First-term firebrand Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come out in support of what many are calling obvious truth: “Einstein didn’t kill himself.”

“But I don’t know why everyone’s making such a big deal about it,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a press conference. “I mean, like, he’s been dead for over a thousand years right? Or was that Newton? I’m not good at history.”

It’s unclear whether AOC as the kids like to call her was aware that Einstein died at the Princeton Medical Center in 1955.

Let me get this straight. Gay, black, employed as an actor and act out a fake hate crime hoax and you're suing the City of Chicago? Big balls.

Via Fox News:

Jussie Smollett says the $10,000 he was mandated to pay after the criminal case against him was closed should prevent the city of Chicago from seeking reimbursement for the police investigation following his claim, back in January 2019, that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack.

Attorneys for the former “Empire” actor filed a response Tuesday to Chicago’s lawsuit in federal court. They also filed a counterclaim against the city, saying Smollett was the victim of a malicious prosecution that caused humiliation and extreme distress.

The ACLU certainly doesn't know much about law. And knows less about science.

And once you control their healthcare, you can control them completely. Outrageous medical care in Great Britain. Or nothing to see here move along.

At least 42 babies and three mothers died at maternity wards covered by a single hospital trust due to a ‘toxic’ culture, a leaked report has claimed.

Children were also left with disabilities as a result of substandard care at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust in what could possibly be the largest maternity scandal in NHS history.

Staff at the trust routinely dismissed parents’ concerns, were unkind and got dead babies’ names wrong, according to the document seen by The Independent.

In one troubling case, parents were not told their baby’s body had arrived back from the post-mortem examination, and it was left to decompose so badly the family never got to say goodbye properly.

The interim update report comes from an independent inquiry led by maternity expert Donna Ockenden, which was launched by former health secretary Jeremy Hunt in July 2017.

Dear Mummy I still want to be prince. Make the hullabaloo go away.

Prince Andrew was forced to quit royal duties last night after a dramatic intervention by the Queen and the Prince of Wales.

They took decisive action to contain the fall-out from the duke's disastrous TV interview about his friendship with a paedophile billionaire.

The interview triggered days of catastrophic headlines and caused a string of businesses and charities to desert him.

Following lengthy discussions with Charles, who is touring New Zealand, the Queen summoned Andrew to Buckingham Palace and told him to step down.


On the bright side he didn't tell certain members of the press #LearnToCode.

Not preaching, but.....There are reasons for leash laws. Australian woman beaten severely by a kangaroo.

A woman in Australia needed 25 stitches to her face and almost lost an eye after being mauled by a kangaroo while walking her dog.

The attack happened near a popular walking trail in the city of Wodonga, in the state of Victoria, according to CNN affiliate 9News. Dina, who declined to share her last name, let her pet dog off its leash and it began chasing a large male kangaroo — prompting her to try to intervene.

“I ran up the embankment to try and get my dog away but not realizing that I was only three or four meters behind the roo,” Dina told 9News. “And that’s when I sensed the roo was panicking, and thinking, ‘I’m being attacked on all sides.'”

She turned around right as the kangaroo attacked her from behind, knocking her to the ground.

The DOJ has recently released a study. Four things in common that mass shooters share.

The stereotype of a mass shooter is a white male with a history of mental illness or domestic violence. While that may be anecdotally true, the largest single study of mass shooters ever funded by the U.S. government has found that nearly all mass shooters have four specific things in common.

A new Department of Justice-funded study of all mass shootings — killings of four or more people in a public place — since 1966 found that the shooters typically have an experience with childhood trauma, a personal crisis or specific grievance, and a “script” or examples that validate their feelings or provide a roadmap. And then there’s the fourth thing: access to a firearm.

We are all Morons here and The ONT knows you won't be offended. Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for that young child? Here ya go.

A Nerf dart gun, ice cream-scented Nickelodeon slime and a plastic Power Rangers claw are among the toys topping a consumer safety group’s list of worst toys for the holidays.

World Against Toys Causing Harm unveiled its annual list Tuesday at a Boston children’s hospital.

A realistic toy machine gun, a “pogo trick board,” a yeti teddy bear and a pull-along caterpillar toy for infants also made the list.

The Massachusetts nonprofit has been releasing the list for more than 40 years.

It says many of the products present choking, eye and other safety hazards frequently found in poorly designed toys. It also cites the products for having inconsistent and inadequate warnings labels.

The organization says the Nerf Ultra One gun, which is billed as firing soft darts up to 120 feet, shoots the projectiles with enough force to potentially cause eye injuries.

We aren't advocating for Irwin Mainway....................Yet.

The State of California does believe in walls. No more fleeing the State of California.

SACRAMENTO, CA—California's state government has announced it will agree to build a wall as President Trump has been pushing for, except this wall will keep people in, not out.


People trying to flee the socialist state in U-Hauls in search of a better life will be greeted with a large concrete structure running across all exits from the state. Modeled after the Berlin Wall, the structure will provide comfort and security to state legislators fearful of citizens fleeing for basic necessities like electricity, taxes less than 100%, and plastic straws and bags.

The rest of the country all pitched in for the wall, too, so Governor Newsom only needed to raise income taxes by a few percentage points to fund it.

If there is Karma. This guy might be a deserving candidate.

According to Aftonbladet, one of the largest daily newspapers in the Nordic countries, a biological male who was convicted of killing and butchering his ex-girlfriend has been approved to move to a woman’s jail facility after claiming to be transgender.

In 2013, Kristoffer Johansson, who now goes by Kim Marie, was convicted of killing and cutting up his ex-girlfriend, Expressen reported last week. Johansson recently started a “gender correction” in prison, the outlet noted, citing Aftonbladet. He alerted authorities about alleged harassment following the “correction” and submitted a request to be transferred to an all-female jail. After initially receiving a rejection of the application, Johansson has now been approved to serve out the rest of his time in a woman-only facility.

I might live in the frozen tundra. But I don't see myself in Canada participating in the Hair Freezing Contest.

Now I’m well aware that there are some crazy contests around the world. People seem to love doing obscure things to showcase their talents or personalities. Sometimes people just enjoy throwing themselves out there into the world to find new friends and things to enjoy. I’ve heard of weird contests like extreme ironing, where contestants try to iron clothes in the craziest places such as underwater or even while jumping out of a plane. I’ve seen funny contests where people even try their best to replicate a pig’s calls and snorts. Well I came across a contest in Canada that looks like a blast. I’ve never seen anything like it before and the conditions in Whitehorse, Yukon are just perfect for this unique contest. Because temperatures can reach – 22 degrees in the winter months, people tend to stay inside. Not these people though and they have a very good reason.

They are happy to go outside because they are competing in the annual Hair Freezing Contest of Whitehorse, Canada. This event is held every February when temperatures can reach below – 22 degrees. The well-below-freezing temps combined with a dip in the 104 degree hot springs makes for one unique contest. A hair freezing contest!


And in case you're wondering. I do have a full head of hair.

THE ONT MUSICAL INTERLUDE

Refrain from liquor, abstain from drugs and stay the hell away from the casino. Genius Award Winner.

Mayor Domenic Sarno’s communications director tried to call the MGM casino’s president via the FaceTime app at 3 a.m. while being detained by police after allegedly vandalizing a restaurant, including plucking lemons off a tree and hurling them through the kitchen and dining room.

Marian K. Sullivan, 27, of Springfield, pleaded not guilty to malicious destruction of property in Springfield District Court Monday morning, one day after Sarno issued a media advisory announcing that he placed Sullivan on paid administrative leave following her arrest.

Shop owner goes over and above the call of duty. Your lovable Cob wouldn't have. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A New York state bagel store clerk is being hailed as a hero after taking a 7-hour round-trip drive to return a set of keys left behind by a customer.

Diana Chong said her husband kept the car running while she popped into Bagels 101 in Middle Island to grab some coffee.


"I took my keys because I use the Bally Rewards," Chong told WPVI-TV. "I come here every morning on my way to work. And then after that, I got my bagels. I went back in the car and we drove away."

Chong said it wasn't until arriving in Honesdale, Pa., that she realized she had left the keys 180 miles away at the bagel shop. The key ring includes the fob needed to start her family vehicle.

I'm sure there is a Hallmark Christmas movie on right now.

The one where the hot single woman comes home unexpectedly from the big city, has some problems with her relationship getting cheated on, and the puny, dorky friend she confided in during her junior year of high school just happens to run into her at the store, and is now a heart surgeon and People's Sexiest Man of the Year.

72 A new Department of Justice-funded study of all mass shootings - killings of four or more people in a public place - since 1966 found that the shooters typically have an experience with childhood trauma, a personal crisis or specific grievance, and a "script" or examples that validate their feelings or provide a roadmap. And then there's the fourth thing: access to a firearm.


Fifth thing: 24 mass shooters out of the last 25 didn't have a father in the home.

If an "evangelical" was saying to a kid that sex is bad, that "evangelical" was going against Christ's teachings and was more of a Cathar. Also, fucked in the head.

Since that is the way I got here, then no - it is not bad. However, since it is the way nearly every other person got here then sex is something very powerful that should be handled with caution (Heh! Indeed!) and ideally should be engaged in only when you can handle (Heh! I said handle!) the logical results.

Working title: The Shadow Over Holly Grove

Plot: After vingtillions of years lording over the subterranean world and inducing madness in those who spy him, Cthulhu finds himself wanting more out of life, and returns to his hometown to think things over. While there, he unexpectedly encounters a single mother trying to do the best she can for her kids while also organizing the school's Christmas play, and together the two strike up an unlikely relationship that reconciles soul-crushing terror with the magic of the holidays. Could this be a second chance for them both?

Working title: The Shadow Over Holly Grove

Plot: After vingtillions of years lording over the subterranean world and inducing madness in those who spy him, Cthulhu finds himself wanting more out of life, and returns to his hometown to think things over. While there, he unexpectedly encounters a single mother trying to do the best she can for her kids while also organizing the school's Christmas play, and together the two strike up an unlikely relationship that reconciles soul-crushing terror with the magic of the holidays. Could this be a second chance for them both?

No, no, no. You're doing it wrong. These are two-hour movies. That plot point will have to wait for the inevitable sequel, when our happy couple happen to meet Yog-Sothoth, who can also take human form, and our heroine/female protagonist (I'm picturing Candace Cameron Bure) has to decide between the mystery and rough charm of Yog-Sothoth, or the deep compassion and personal redemption arc of Cthulhu.

Again, this is all for the sequel. We'll call it "At the Mountains of Mistletoe."

326 "They are ruining it." ZeroHedge is one site I can cite that delivers targeted ads that 1) get by AdBlockerPlus, 2) seem harmless and low-bandwidth, and 3) sometimes are of interest to me.

Their targeting is misfiring tonite. They're trying to sell me clothes, and I never buy or browse clothing. But often they show me stuff I'm interested in. I don't click on any of the ads, of course. If I'm interested, I browse directly to the vendor's site.

I wonder how many people actually do whitelist sites that go total anti-ad-blocking policy like Daily Mail has; probably most of em. I wonder if they notice any dropoff in site traffic from people like me who balk.

Daily Mail often has more detailed reporting on US news than American news sites do, and they have interesting photo essays occasionally too. Their editorial is sh!t, and their ultra-woke comment censors are sh!t, but other than that I liked them.

408 "It seems people either love the movie Christmas Story or they hate it. No middle ground."

It's based on a book by Jean Shepherd, "In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash," which is about Shepherd's childhood in Hammond, IN. I grew up somewhat nearby in Chicago during approximately the same period, and many anecdotes in the book match up with stuff I remember from back then. There is a regional flavor to it.

But Dio Sabbath was fucking sublime. Heaven and Hell was an yuge experience when I was a troubled Catholic boy. Still kind of shocked that my folks let me even buy it.

And, gun to my head, Ronnie James Dio was the single greatest rock/metal vocalist ever. He sounded as good at 60 as he did at 30.

I was around 12, and playing guitar and drums, and was leaning more towards drums. I heard the opening chords to iron man and that was it, I knew what I wanted to do from that moment on.

Agreed. Pedophilia is adults having sex with young children who have not attained puberty. Epstein's clients were banging jailbait. Hint: why do they call it "jailbait"? We don't call prepubescent children "jailbait", do we? "Jailbait" is jailbait because it looks like it might be legal, but it's not.

Bryan Caplan on Open Borders
https://t.co/RIOjNaVm5L?amp=1

"What would an actual open borders regime look like? How would it affect those already living in the United States? And why is the case for open borders stronger than the case for restrictionism, or at least the prioritization of high-skill immigrants? Bryan Caplan explores these questions in his most recent book: a work of graphic non-fiction co-produced with illustrator Zach Weinersmith, Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration.

Bryan Caplan is a professor of economics at George Mason University and a regular blogger at EconLog. He's also the author of three previous books: The Case Against Education, Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids, and The Myth of the Rational Voter"

454 I meet very few people who don't like that movie.

of life when I was young, before the left attacked every last fucking
facet of our culture.


Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at November 20, 2019 10:36 PM (9Om/r)


Heck, parts of that culture were around me when I was little. We did not have a coal furnace with an automatic stoker, but my grandfather did, and my dad had told me stories about that contraption. And his parent's house looked a lot like the house in the movie. And the bully - I remember a kid like that. My elementary school - half of it was built before WWII and it looked just like that school in the movie.

Unless you cut everything off violently, the cultural waves go far up the beach. And even if you do cut them off, the waves return. Russia is heading Tsarist, China is heading Mandarin, and they are doing that pretty darn openly. I would not be surprised if Russia asked a Romanov to come and be the official ceremonial greeter sometime in the next quarter century.

Bring us back to a one day election and make it a holiday. And give soldiers, people who are disabled, and those abroad a chance to vote by mail But BS with this early voting for no reason whatsoever. The left is run top down. They make people vote whether they want to or not.

Snow is caused by magical thinking?




















Up in the atmosphere is colder than down here. So, snow starts up there and lands here. It usually melts fast, unless there is a lot of it.

495 Dr T, in the first proposal you need the goat with a million young for the female character, and the second is crying out for a Deep Ones tie in. An Innsmouth Xmas as if were. After all, what could be more Christmasy than a nearly New England port town?
Posted by: Kindltot at November 20, 2019 10:43 PM (0TbLI)


No, no, no. We can talk about bringing in the Deep Ones, but the female character needs to be human. That's how you get tension, which is why I included the twist that she doesn't originally know Cthulhu's true identity. It builds suspense and creates a character arc. Don't you people understand anything about moviemaking?

And apart from anything else, Innsmouth is just a dump. It should be somewhere in Vermont, though in a pinch I'd be willing to settle for Arkham.

Took my brother's family to see the Brian Setzer Orchestra long ago at the Santa Barbara Bowl (great place for an outdoor concert, by the way). While Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks were opening, we could see backstage where Setzer was hanging out watching the band. He was introduced to a little girl by her parents who were all backstage together, and you could tell that he was having fun meeting the whole family.

Then a really good dance number starts up, and he spontaneously starts swing dancing with the girl, who had a HUGE grin on her face through the whole song. Damned if that wasn't the cutest thing I'd seen in years.

Paper ballots, vote in person unless you've got a damn good reason. No such thing as "early voting." One day of voting only (again, unless somebody's got a DAMN good reason they can't be at their polling station on voting day).

Oh, and no release of vote tallies until they're done counting. No exceptions.

508 If Alberta Oil Peon is here, I had a question on 3D printing metal parts for guns (which I would lose in that tragic boating accident).

He said 3D printers don't make parts that would have high stress points like door handle joints

Would a 3D printed gun need to use spare trigger mechanism parts from a manufactured gun?
Posted by: kbdabear at November 20, 2019 10:30 PM (qAR6u)

I'd say you could make some parts, but not those that have to resist firing pressures. But there have to be people out there way better versed than me in what's possible with 3D printing technology. They can do metal sintering now, too.

563 Besides, like LeftCoast says, this isn't exactly hard. Coming up with the plot of a Hallmark Christmas movie is like doing a Mad Lib. The Horde could write a script in thirty minutes, and the channel would probably run with it.
Posted by: Dr. T at November 20, 2019 10:02 PM

A middle-aged lady named Becky leaves an estranged Italian husband and two vacuous college-age daughters behind, shows up unannounced in Jingle Falls, Nebraska to visit her ailing Aunt Trudy who needs help running her little bookstore in town.

Becky falls for the local electrician named Mike, divorced with no kids, as they navigate snow-covered streets sparkling with Christmas lights while sipping cocoa and waving to kids on sleds. They have Hallmark sex meaning a chaste kiss here and there in between interminable conversations with the locals: sassy old ladies, the jealous frenemy, the old boyfriend who hasn't forgotten That Kiss from prom night, the friendly old coot who changes the tire when Becky gets stuck on the road, oh God kill me now.

The big crisis comes when the feds track her down and come to arrest Becky for paying bribes to get her kids into college. Mike is betrayed to find out Becky's husband and kids didn't DIAF after all. Don't worry, it has a happy ending. Mike forgives Becky because of course he does, and promises to wait the 40 years for her to get out of prison! Merry Christmas!

565 The H2 has a lot of folks what used to hang out here. I never comment, because they seem mean, like otters. Still, some great poats. I check them out daily.

566 I've been addicted to Soul that has a Baritone Sax in the horn section, lately.

Can't get enough of that shit.

570 My local fucking news who is generally sorta fair minded just ran an impeachment inquiry bombshell that might lead to direct implications of QPQ and then segwayed into a hit piece by NBC that ended with a few clips from Jim Jordan wearing that ass out... Womp Womp.. I laughed.

I immediately blasted off a letter to the news director for airing mindless BS but I don't expect an answer...

Lived in Germany for three years. The poop shelf was fucking weird. I always pictured German hausfraus with popsicle sticks making sure young Hans was regular.

578 Well. The amazing K9 Tongue-U-Lator did a fine job of getting the burned rice out of the skillet. Nice work, Pogo.
