THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

"You know, sometimes politicians who are stuck in Washington, and don't take the time to get out, don't get out to where real people live and play and work, they lose touch with the reality of where the heartbeat of our country is," she told a crowd at a recent campaign rally. "The heartbeat of our country, it's certainly not in Washington, D.C. The heartbeat of our country is in rooms like this. In communities like yours all across this country, standing up and saying it is time now for our voices to be heard." Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)


Quote II

People are excited about Buttigieg. He's fresh, he's new. He's gay. He's a serviceman. He served in Afghanistan. He's married, and a very, I mean unless you are a homophobe, he's married in a very traditional marriage, you know? Totally monogamous, and that should appeal to the silent majority, whoever they are. Joy Behar


Quote III

For generations, our community has been fed empty promises by Democratic candidates who pledged to fight for minorities and help the African-American community, only to ignore us after rising to power. Herman Cain


Quote IV

If a gay man doesn’t want to have sex with someone who has a vagina and a lesbian doesn’t want to have sex with someone who has a dick, they are not being transphobic. They’re being — how shall I put this? — gay. Andrew Sullivan

Hillary Clinton Nacho President. And her "foundation" is hemorrhaging like the stuck pig she is.

This is evidenced nowhere more in the fact that the Clinton Foundation has gone from turning over a revenue of almost $400 million in 2013, to actually LOSING almost $33 million since Donald Trump wiped the floor with Hillary in 2016.

Newly released tax records show that the foundation reported a loss of almost $17 million in 2018, to add to the net loss of $16.1 million the previous year in 2017.

The numbers don’t lie.

Total revenue reported for 2018 was just $30.7 million, less than a tenth of what was being pulled in While Hillary was Secretary of State.


So when does the Wicked Witch of The North East hit us deplorables taxpayers up for a bailout?

The first male birth control is going to hurt. Of course it is.

Would men endure a shot in the penis to prevent pregnancy? Indian researchers think so.

The Indian Council of Medical Research, a government-funded biomedical research agency, has successfully completed a clinical trial on an injectable male contraceptive, the Hindustan Times reported.

“The product is ready, with only regulatory approvals pending [from the government],” Dr. R.S. Sharma, senior scientist with ICMR, told the local news outlet. “The trials are over, including extended, Phase 3 clinical trials for which 303 candidates were recruited with a 97.3% success rate and no reported side effects. The product can safely be called the world’s first male contraceptive.”

The birth control method, which lasts approximately 13 years, involves injecting a polymer, called styrene maleic anhydride, into the vas deferens, effectively blocking sperm from leaving the testicles. The shot, preceded by a dose of local anesthesia, is designed to supplant a traditional vasectomy.

Daily cannabis use lowers odds of using illicit opioids among people who have chronic pain

For those using illicit opioids to manage their chronic pain, cannabis may be a beneficial -- and a less dangerous -- alternative, according to new research from the BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU)

SMOD, is it on its way?

NASA is currently tracking three near-Earth objects (NEOs) due to fly past the Earth on November 20. Worryingly, two of the three were only spotted this past weekend, once again raising tensions over planetary defense.
The first of Wednesday’s cosmic flybys and the largest, measuring 157.5ft to 360.8ft (48 to 110 meters) across, will be asteroid 2019 UK6, which will speed past at approximately 6.20am GMT (1.20am EDT). It is 2019 UK6 we had most prior warning about, as it was first observed on October 24.

NEO 2019 UK6 is an Amor asteroid, which that goes around the Sun and the Earth, occasionally, but very rarely, crossing Earth's path. Apollo asteroids, on the other hand, intersect with Earth’s orbit as the planet travels around the Sun.

Protesters are planners. Who knew?

Right now: activists with @XRebelDC @ExtinctionR are taking supplements in preparation for an attempted hunger strike at Nancy Pelosi’s office.

The #ExtinctionRebellion activists say they’ll be demanding a sit-down meeting with Pelosi where they will push her on climate action.


The ONT's advice? 66 days of hunger strike will win you a good number of converts. Go for it.

Lost and found. Odd family reunion.

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (CNN) After years of not hearing from a Glens Falls, New York, man, Rick Hazelton's family had him legally declared dead.


But a friend of Hazelton wanted answers and with the help of a detective was able to track down Hazelton.

He found out that Hazelton was not dead, but rather he had moved around the country.

"One day I got a letter in the mail that said, 'You're being investigated in a missing persons report.' And I thought, 'That can't be right, I'm not missing. This has gotta be a mistake,'" said Hazelton.

Hazelton says that cellphones and social media just weren't around back then and so he just fell out of touch with friends and family.

Now, 33 years later, he's back in touch with those who love him and is spending Thanksgiving in New York.

If you remove a GPS monitoring device on your car and remove it, are you a thief?

Back in 2012, the US Supreme Court ruled that it's illegal for the police to attach a GPS tracking device to someone's car without a warrant. But what if you find a GPS tracking device on your car? Can you remove it?

A little more than a year ago, the state of Indiana charged a suspected drug dealer with theft for removing a government-owned GPS tracking device from his SUV. This month, the state's Supreme Court began considering the case, and some justices seemed skeptical of the government's argument.

"I'm really struggling with how is that theft," said Justice Steven David during recent oral arguments.

Cookies & Cream, good stuff. Rocky Road, simply delicious. Insect chip and mint? Nope, not going to eat it.

Oh ice cream, how I love you! Sometimes ice cream just really hits the spot, especially when you’ve had a really long day or it’s really hot outside. But have you thought about what’s going to happen to food, and more importantly ice cream, when there is a boom in population? Experts estimate that there will be approximately 11 billion people on our planet by the end of the century. This in turn may lead to a severe food shortage. Scientists have mentioned before that we may need to rely on bugs in order to survive in the future. They’re cheap and an easy protein that can help us get through the day. The Economist decided to take this to another level. We all know that bugs are full of protein, fiber, and even calcium. They are inexpensive and more sustainable than our typical animal proteins like beef. The Economist stated, “not having to look at bugs, and emphasizing the environmental benefits might make the idea of eating insects a bit more palatable.” Well check out their recent experiment that was conducted in Canary Wharf in London.

"Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?"
"A Republic, if you can keep it."

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR’s executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad shares the “formula” he believes will secure Islamists greater political power:

Rolling Stone: Men Who Abstain From Porn Are Dangerous Alt-Righters

There’s a scene in The Big Lebowski in which The Dude bitterly objects that the pornographer Jackie Treehorn, viewed by the local sheriff as an upstanding citizen who “draws a lot of water” in Malibu, “treats objects like women, man.” Lazy, inarticulate stoner though The Dude may be, even he understands that porn is a shady business and that those who produce it are a detriment to society.

To read Rolling Stone, though, you’d think these people were providing a valuable public service. In a recent piece by EJ Dickson, the expert witness is Dr. David Ley, a “clinical psychologist and sex therapist” who “has partnered with the [pornographic] cam website Stripchat” to spread the word about “sexual health.” The story also includes interviews with the vice presidents of two different porn sites, an embedded tweet about the supposed health benefits of chronic masturbation, and – to wrap it up – a “comforting message” from an “adult performer and director.” They all want you to know that porn won’t hurt you or anyone else. After all, everyone is watching it.

A segment on Trevor Noah’s Daily Show takes it a step further, trotting out the same psychologist from the Rolling Stone piece to explain that porn and masturbation make “a lot of really good things happen in your body and your brain” and that “people who watch more pornography…are more feminist” and have “more egalitarian values.” The correspondent responds with a joke – delivered without a trace of self-awareness – about how watching a 95-on-1 gang bang made him realize that “women have it so hard.”

Sh!t happens. Unfortunately sometimes it takes many years for people to learn that.

Unfortunately, for Jake Mesar, the implications of his injury were a bit more severe — and yet, the implications of his lawsuit could have essentially ended youth sports as we know it if he had succeeded.

Yes, the repercussions of what happened were long-lasting and brutal. His lawsuit, however, was still insupportable and dangerous, something that would have been risible had the ramifications not been so serious. In the process, it cost a teacher years of his life in a courtroom as well as his reputation.

In 2012, according to NJ Advance Media, middle school teacher John Suk, coaching the junior varsity baseball team at Bound Brook High School in New Jersey, ordered Mesar to slide into third while his team was leading 6-0 in a game at Gill St. Bernard’s School in order to stretch a hit into a triple. Mesar would roll his ankle, which ended with a serious break.

Should medical patient confidentiality rules apply with parents and their children?

A woman who was not informed that her father had a fatal, inherited brain disorder has told the High Court that she would have had an abortion if she'd known at the time of her pregnancy.

She is suing three NHS trusts saying they owed a duty of care to tell her about her dad's Huntington's disease.

Any child of someone with the condition has a 50% chance of inheriting it.

Doctors suspected the diagnosis after her father shot dead her mother and was detained under the Mental Health Act.

The father tested positive for Huntington's Disease, which is caused by a faulty gene and leads to the progressive loss of brain cells, affecting movement, mood and thinking skills. It can also cause aggressive behaviour.

He told doctors he did not want his daughter told about his diagnosis, fearing she might kill herself or have an abortion if she found out.

Australia is a mighty generous country.

An Iranian man seeking asylum in Australia botched his DIY penis enlargement procedure — and was granted entry to undergo pricey reconstructive surgery on taxpayer dime, according to local reports.

The man in his 30s, who wasn’t publicly named, tried to grow his member by injecting himself with palm oil and fell seriously ill, The Australian reported on Sunday.

He was transferred from an immigration detention center in Papua New Guinea to Australia last month for medical treatment that could cost up to $10,000, according to the outlet.

The transfer was made possible under Australia’s controversial 2019 Medevac laws, which give doctors a greater say as to which sick refugees can come into the county from offshore detention centers for medical treatment. Medical evacuations can be refused on national security grounds.

What part of strip search don't you understand? Genius Award Winner.

Following his arrest for possession of a hypodermic needle containing methamphetamine, a 380-pound Florida Man was hit with additional felony charges after jail personnel discovered a bag of meth “wedged deep within the belly button cavity of the defendant,” according to a court affidavit.

Police responding late Friday to a suspicious person call placed by employees of a McDonald’s in Clearwater arrested Martin Skelly when a search of the 41-year-old St. Petersburg resident turned up the loaded needle.

It might be a bit dusty in here. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

On Nov. 17, the parking lot of Six Flags in St. Louis, Missouri, was packed with a fleet of brightly colored sports cars. Vehicles of all makes and models — but especially the fastest and most vibrant — waited for the word, and then they all started lining up and proceeded to the funeral of a 14-year-old boy.

Alec Ingram of Washington, Missouri, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2015, and for the past four years has fought bravely against the disease.

A Facebook page called Alec Ingram’s fight with Cancer was set up to keep people informed on his progress. They got updates of successes and setbacks, and the post received scores of comments from prayer warriors and well-wishers who all wanted Alec to overcome osteosarcoma.

73 Natan Sharansky, a refusenik who spent a lot of time in the Gulag before emigrating to Israel:

Can someone within that society walk into the town square and say what they want without fear of being punished for his or her views? If so, then that society is a free society. If not, it is a fear society.

Amazing how far we're progressed from society #1 to society #2 in the last few years.

You can get fired now from a significant fraction of the workplaces in America for publicly stating that "sex reassignment" surgery does not in fact turn someone from a man into a woman.

They want young men living alone in habitation pods, eating bugs, dulled by pornography, video games, and television, avoiding all familial and social ties that create communities.

Meanwhile the alt-right is out there telling young men that they have value to the world, to hit the gym, stop with the porn and video games that desensitize them to the real world, contribute to building a real community, and that wanting a wife and family is good.

Lead. Lots and lots of lead.

You should be adding lead to your water, adding powdered lead to your food and eating supplemental lead pellets.

This is to make you heavier without making you fatter. Fat is bad. But you want to be heavy so the evil oppressor people can't easily pick you up and carry you away.

And being heavy makes it harder to push you around.

No. Because everything is 100% stipulation these days.
You just have to know the pre-loaded answer.

Gays "born this way" is completely inconsistent with Ts "born this way". Plus Trans just tops the inconsistency with the Gay wave, by conflicting with itself. Why do you need to change your physique and genitals if what they are trying to get to is a "gender"--and the word we're supposed to use is "gender"--and "gender" and "sex" are two different things, besides that "gender" is a "social construct".

There is too much cognitive dissonance. So the only solution is to regurgitate the logic table to avoid the negative reinforcement of the mob.

There's a guy who was editor of one of the San Francisco alt-weeklies, and now runs a very-left wing web site, who bought his house years ago, and is now worth a couple of million.

He's all in favor of repealing Prop 13 - for commercial real estate only, of course.

331 Prop 13 only covers houses bought before a certain date.

No - the deal is that the house value resets when the house is sold, so the new buyer pays property taxes based on the price of the house when you bought it.

I have a friend who bought a house in Silicon Valley for $80,000 - the house is now worth a couple of mil. She pays taxes on the $80,000 valuation, but anyone buying the house would pay taxes on the two million valuation.

A solid portion of Californians are illegals, immigrants or destitute and pay zipola in property taxes, so they could give a flying fig if the average property tax burden goes from $1500 to $20-30K.


So you will see California locusts fleeing their state as they have been doing for decades and infecting the rest of the west.

But the insatiable taxing authorities have been gunning for Prop 13 for a long time - but I assumed that the order would be removing Prop 13 for commercial real estate, and then limiting Prop 13 (perhaps by saying that the Prop 13 tax valuation could only be $500,000 less than the market value of the house, for example).

Because they need something new at the low end of what used to be turbulence. I was watching a show the other day, and a terrorist blew out the engine on a passenger jet liner. The captain came over the PA, and announced that the plane was experiencing some turbulence.

I mean, losing your engine is pretty severe, right? So you can't just go calling any old thing turbulence! The little stuff's gotta be called something else, right? Or people won't know the difference between the engine on your plane blowing up versus just a few bumps in the air!

The destitute get welfare, so they don't care.


Immigrants and illegals will just sneak a few more cousins over the border and put them up, so instead of a house of 10 illegals you have a house of 15.


And if you are buying a house taxes are figured into your consideration so if you can handle $30k in taxes a
year more power to you.


Bottom line, let California do what it wants and get it good and hard.

424 @398 Until California passes a rent control law and municipalities wonder why they have so many derelict properties on their hands.

-------------

The state already passed a rent control law, and did it quite brazenly over the will of the voters.

A rent control item was up on the ballot during the last big election. The voters voted it down. Sacramento then went and passed a rent control law just a few months later.

No need - given the amount of rationing envisioned in Elizabeth Warren's Medicare For All, you'll just get palliative care after age 70, unless you are an important politically-connected person.

Then, after the inevitable budget crunch, it will be only palliative care after age 65.

458 ..Last night I think it was Jim from Galveston who said he would love to do a restomod on a 72 Super Beetle

Here's a shop that did a build of a 2300 CC VW engine that puts out 200 hp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtwSVXUKJhA


Posted by: kbdabear at November 19, 2019 11:11 PM (qAR6u)



'Twas I, indeed. But I'd be wanting something down around 140hp, with good power and torque graphs, no overheating, magnificent reliability and longevity.

That 200 hp engine borders on being a rolling grenade.

But imagine if you will, an "every nut and bolt" renewal of such VW, with modern, mapped digital fuel injection, a five speed manual, four-wheel disc brakes, state of the art suspension (remember, the Super Beetle has MacPherson Struts up front, and the rear axles have inner and outer CV joints, so no "swing axle" sadness there.

Right-size the wheels n' tires, set the body angle to not roll "nose up" when going down the highway.

Line the body shell with modern soundproofing before installing the interior. Use modern electricals, with robust, maintainable connecters.

Install the AC compressor from a surplus Suzuki sedan. Tiny compressor, but it does the job without hogging-down HP. Restore an old "Factory Air" under dash unit. Yeah, that was the brand name. And it contour fit under the dash, vs. being one of those "hang down" suitcase size units we used to see on domestic iron.

Give the car amenities. Power windows. Ergonomic arm rests. Cruise control. Many way adjustable seats. My 1st Beetle, a '71, even had an aftermarket center console on the floor, and I'd built a custom add on that joined the floor console with the underside of the dash, and gave me a place for switches and indicator lights for the halogen driving lights on front bumper.

A decent stereo, but not a ghetto-car-thumping abomination of distorted sound.

Put some modern headlights in the fenders, good LED stuff behind all the other lenses.

Like I said. Try to bring the car up to more modern, refined standard. Not "Hot Rod", but DRIVEABLE on a daily, dependable and comfortable basis.

That'd be the Resto Mod I'd want on one.

Oregon public pensions used to be exempt from state income tax. This ended after Federal retirees sued for the same treatment, so the tax exemption was eliminated.

The State of Oregon then raised all the Oregon public pensions by enough to cover the state tax liability. Even if you move to Nevada or Washington, which has no state income tax, you still get the pension bump.

You could probably get 140 hp out of a DIY upgrade in your garage, but the digital fuel injection would take some know how on how all the sensors work and how to program it. I think there are actually kits for that if you do some searches.

I remember that Anna Puma loves her some Karmann Ghia's, a 200 hp boxer in a KG might be a thrill. There's a video on Youtube of a German motorhead who put a Porsche 911 turbocharged 6 in one along with other upgrades, did 200 mph on The Autobahn

Finding a 5-speed that could be made to fit would be a problem, given that VW's used a transaxle, with all the gears in one housing. Maybe some Porsche or Subaru units could be adapted?

IIRC, fourth gear in air-cooled VW's was slightly overdriven, anyway, so that 4 speed box had a pretty good spread. Build your engine to have a broad flat torque curve, and you won't much miss a 5-speed.

548 ..Finding a 5-speed that could be made to fit would be a problem, given that VW's used a transaxle, with all the gears in one housing. Maybe some Porsche or Subaru units could be adapted?

IIRC, fourth gear in air-cooled VW's was slightly overdriven, anyway, so that 4 speed box had a pretty good spread. Build your engine to have a broad flat torque curve, and you won't much miss a 5-speed.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 19, 2019 11:39 PM (/sgva)



Five speeds are listed in ads in Hot VW and VW Trends magazines. Spendy, but they're there.

Trick to building a proper 1600cc Dual Port engine would occur long before the first wrench was turned.

The Spec Sheet on this would be THE key to success.

Which cases to source? Original or aftermarket cylinders? Water-cooled heads? (they're out there, too.) Which pistons? Rings? Crankshaft from which company? Bearings?

And yes, there are proven, ready to go, digital engine control systems for the VW engine on the marketplace. No need to re-invent the wheel there.

And, etc.

To get the right spec sheet, I would haunt the VW Beetle forums, get a consensus on who might be the Top Ten builders in the land, and solicit input from them.

And then pick one to build the damn thing. I'd insist on perfection, and being a Beetle, aircraft safety wire on certain components, such as the case-half bolts.

Can I build such an engine? Don't doubt that I could.

But I'd prefer to pay the guy who builds these as a Masterpiece, fifty weeks in a row.

Dude, if that ever happens you should first take it off and put it on something else. Someone else's car. Some hot shot truck going coast to coast. Some snakehead smuggling kids. Even put it in a fed ex and overnight it to hong kong, would be great to see their expression when their tracker is moving 550 mph.

If none of these work, put it on some cop car.

Honestly, if I found such a device on my car, and wanted to get rid of it, without ever acknowledging that I knew of its existence (which implies a guilty mind), I would detach it from its anchor, carry it in the car with me, and then find a rough-ass hunk of road with BAD chuckholes in it, and drive down it, and drop the damned thing in a deep chuckhole.

Signal stops. Cops go to last known location, find crushed transponder in chuckhole. Well, maybe it just "fell off".

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 20, 2019 12:16 AM (/sgva)

612 The ideal solution for the Police Tracker, would be to attach it to a local jurisdiction Police Helicopter.

IF, that is, one could elude security in such a manner to accomplish the deed.

But can you imagine the DILEMA of the "tracking" crew, trying to figure out "WTF?"

And the EMBARASSMENT to them all, once they'd figured it out?

Sure, Federal Felony for Aircraft Tampering and all that.

I had to look up the etymology of "ped". It has several meaning. The form meaning "child"/young comes from the Greek. In Latin, ped means foot.

Incidentally, there is a form from Greek that means soil/dirt, which is clearly related to feet, which trod upon said soil.

But, ironically, considering today's Swallowell angle, there is a Latin form that means "to fart".

So ped-/pedo-/etc, etc can mean child, foot, dirt or farting.

The word "petard" which persists today only in the Shakespearean "hoist with his own petard" comes from the fart meaning. It was a fart pun, which is lost in modern English.

Some years back there was a company in Michigan that bought the stamping molds for the Chevy Tri-5's to make the bodies or body parts out of brand new steel. For the entire body you'd shell out 25k, which in most cases is less expensive than restoring an original. Hot Rod featured a 55 Bel Air convertible built as such, with an LS-1 and Heidt IRS. Painted it two-tone burgundy and black and it was absolutely gorgeous.

676 before I turn in, I actually have a true story that combines farting with a traffic stop.

around 11 pm one night, I was driving home, and my 9 year old daughter was asleep in the front seat with just her blond hair showing in the front passenger window, I went through a big intersection of two highways and turned north and out of town again.

a cop must have seen her head, and the car seat in the back of the Cadillac, because that's the reason he gave for stopped us about 3 miles up the highway in the country.

He asked for proof of insurance and it was in the glove box. I'm short, so I leaned over onto my side, to open the box, because the Caddy is so big. while i was leaning over, an odd sound emitted from my posterior, unmistakable.

I didn't sit up right away, because I was mortified. When I did, he was gone, and called back to me as he walked away: "That's all right Ma'am. I'm sure you're fine. have a good night"

It's funny - the Oregon legislature would dearly love to raise the state income tax, but since Portland is right across the river from a state with no income tax, the legislature thus far has figured out that raising the state income tax would be counterproductive.

I had dinner with a senior physician from Children's Hospital BRS* and we were discussing how cardiologists have abandoned physical examination in favor of echocardiogram ($2500 a pop, at least) and that virtually every single patient seen in their clinic gets an echocardiogram done before even seeing the doctor. I asked him how long he thought this model could be sustained, and he said (in essence), "It will go on indefinitely."

I suggested that it would perhaps continue until Medicare for All was implemented, at which point some combination of rationing, price controls and denial of service would kick in.

He looked at me like he had never heard of Medicare for All.

Well, prior to around 1940, windshields and most car windows were just flat glass, usually laminated safety glass. (Really old cars used plate glass, before the invention of safety glass.)

Flat glass can be cut from stock, and most glass shops have, or can get templates for nearly any car. It doesn't even cost very much. Curved glass for popular old models can be made. The glass companies often keep the old molds, and will run off a batch if there is an order.

Obscure old models with curved glass can be a problem.

704 I want to report on something curious I have encountered. I spent a couple of hours today messing with the LED strips taken from an old flat-screen TV. About half the LED's were dead on each of the three strips.

So I started cutting up the strips into short lengths, each with a single white LED. Some of them lit up right away, fed with 3 volts from a pair of D cells. Lit brightly, too. Some would not light at all, given any voltage. But a few, maybe half a dozen so far, would not light initially on 3 volts, but if jolted with 4.5 volts, they would light up brilliantly, and then subsequently would light normally on 3 volts. One didn't light until I zapped it with 9 (!) volts, and then it, too, subsequently ran on 3 volts. It's almost as though the PN junction in the diode was "clogged" with something, and an over-voltage cleared the clog.

And there doesn't seem to be any mention of this phenomenon on the Internet, so far as my searching has found.

It has happened with too many now for it to be explained away as simply me being too fumble-fingered with the wire leads.

707 Generally for something like a crank you go to a specialist machine outfit and if the part is one piece of metal it can be hacked from a $forged$ $billet$ leaving 77.35% of the metal in the fuckit-bucket.

I kinda doubt that.

What I do think, is that he had this fat little fucker Vindman figured out early on, and left him in place to see what filaments his duplicitous magnet would attract.

And that's why, when the tubby dimwit tried to lay his Trump trap with Schiff, they got their flaccid little peckers caught in it.

They didn't know he'd classified the transcript. So they went out on the limb, blowing it out of proportion and fabricating its contents, and only found out they couldn't do the "Flynn 302 shuffle" with it when Vindman went to the deed.

And then Trump cut it out from behind them by releasing the transcript.

"I doubt you could 3D print a forged steel steering idler arm, or a crankshaft, for example."

Current state-of-the-art metal printing results in parts that are roughly equivalent to a part made from the same material but wrought. strong, better than cast but not close to forged. Not a good choice for idler arms. The crystalline structure is more or less random.

" And even if you had an absolutely perfect 3D CNC mill, I doubt you could duplicate a forged crankshaft, because the internal crystal structure of the metal is an artifact of the forging process, and is why such parts are made as forgings."

Apparently, billet crankshafts are currently the hot tip. There are a few YouTube videos of a crank being completely machined out of a round on a mill-turn. Forging should be better, but apparently the CNC mill-turn production advantages make the result competitive in high-performance racing; NASCAR, I think, not drag racing.

The big glass companies probably still have the molds. Caddies are popular collector cars. Heck, I can still get all the curved glass for various years of Studebakers, except maybe for '41-'42.

But I seem to SOL for the left side curved windshield glass for a '47 Flxible Clipper motor coach.

Odds are, it'll be the same glass as for a '49 Buick or Olds.

Even back then, GM beancounters demanded the "whatever code" body platform, would have the same firewall, windshield frame, engine mounting points and "under the skin" architecture as the rest of the GM line in that series.

Maybe I'm a few years too early on that with the '49, but you can take it to the bank. By '55, a Bel-Air's windshield was the same as it's Cadillac counterpart.

The LINES of the front fenders differed.

They'd both line up to the same bolt holes though.

Such was always the way of GM, and is, and always shall be, until they die.

(and ford/mercury/lincoln was the same, just with more obviousness.)

Posted by: Tonypete at November 20, 2019 01:16 AM (Y4EXg)

Pot metal is a zinc/aluminum alloy used for die castings. Not very strong, but strong enough for most of the purposes for which it is used. Usually chrome plated for trim parts. Also sometimes called "white metal". Carburetors were commonly made from it.

One possibility might be that the excess current is generating enough heat to reflow the solder on the bottom side of the die.
The front contact is usually wire-bonded on, but I think the bottom side is typically soldered.

The heat could also be driving off some type of corrosion or intermetallic compound (like "purple plague") that's interfering with the wire bond on the front.

Those are just guesses, though.

745 Up to date, public, detailed, and reliable info re northern Syria and "the Kurds"* is hard to come by.


However, if any large-scale or systematic atrocities were being committed, you'd hear about it.


I've followed it semi-loosely and so far there have been scattered claims of atrocities - not very many - plus a few pretty plausible atrocities [car bombs with video]. Awkwardly, those latter have ..... been in Turkish-controlled areas [directly or via proxy militia]. Which means, um, "the Kurds" are pretty good suspects - and they've used this kind of terrorism before.


Overall - surprise! - the various players have adjusted their game [local Kurds reaching understanding with Damascus regime, Turks and Russians coming to some kind of terms and doing joint patrols, etc].


World - not ended. US power, influence, $$, gunz, partnership, etc. - still valued/sought by those who woulda wanted it 2 or 2O years ago.


* "the Kurds" - there are Kurds in Iran, Iraq, Turkey, even Georgia [Tsakhvartelo, as they call it, explaining why "Georgia" is preferred]. Brace yourself - being as this is the MidEast, and Kurds are clan-structured, there are lots of factions and divisions and wildly varying kinds of integration/accommodation with national entities/cultures - and vicious rivalries and enmities. Hard to believe, I know. But when you hear "the Kurds", think of "the Arabs" in the Arab Council of Damascus scene in "Lawrence of Arabia" - available on UToob.

Biggest problem with modern pot metal parts is a design that doesn't allow enough section thickness in highly-stressed areas, say the projecting lever on a car door handle where the linkage rod attaches. Or like the bike levers you describe.

For years and years, Studebaker cars used an ignition switch retained in the dash by a bezel with a thin sleeve that had bayonet slots to engage a pair of small studs on the switch body. Inevitably, one or both the bayonet slots would fail, and the ignition switch would flop loose behind the dash, sometimes shorting out and starting a wiring fire.

One of our parts vendors now sells a replacement bezel made of CNC-machined aluminum that is much stronger in that critical area. Costs a few dollars, but can save you thousands.

These diodes are surface-mount devices, soldered to a thin strip of flexible circuit board material bonded to an aluminum backing strip.

But it might be a cold-soldered joint where the LED is soldered to the board. I could see, maybe, an overvoltage burning through an oxide layer in a cold-soldered joint an (temporarily) restoring continuity.

I should retrieve some of the "absolutely dead" LED's from my trash box, hit each joint with a hot soldering iron, and see if any come good.

Aside from all the other jaw-dropping stupidities, the cultural ignorance and ineptness of the address - the crown jewel in his odious multi-year "apology tour" - was "going against" his own, as you put it. The [sadly] late Fouad Ajami had a spectacularly good op-ed on the speech, in which he described how it horrified/puzzled/alienated most of its intended Arab audience.


A region/culture defined by utterly ruthless and clear-eyed [if often mistaken] realpolitik found the mewling apology of The Lone Superpower, which had not long before taken out the biggest badass/feared power in the eastern Arab world [Ba'athist Iraq], baffling and appalling. Fitting that the clueless, bumbling sophisticates demonstrated their *practical* cultural ignorance in such a dramatic fashion.

Well, for casings it would make sense. It's a cheap way to make non moving parts on a mounted device like a little lathe, that never gets tossed around or anything.

My dad's cheap little starter bullet press was made out of it. After he put thousands of rounds through it, it cracked by the handle mount and he bought a tougher one.

Using it for moving parts in a high impact device like, say, a gun would seem like a bad idea.

i used to w*rk repo, so i can speak to this, somewhat.

prior to 76, you could slide hammer out a GM lock and put a new one in.

then they put a locking screw on the bottom, so you had to either "force" the lock, with a special socket on a ratchet, which cracked the internal mechanism, you a screw drive in the key slot would start it, or, if you tore the lock face off trying that, you had to manually tear down the column. PITA and you had to disconnect the battery, as you would invariably set off the horn whilst doing it.

i got out of the biz just as the 90's were getting started, and they had already started making the insides more complex, and with weird screws (Torx, etc) which made it much harder.

then, once airbags got put in the steering wheel, it was apparently like trying to defuse a bomb.

Cousin marriage is pretty common in really poor places. It allows you to keep more wealth in the family, since there aren't other families to make claims on the offspring.

It probably keeps those places poor, too, since there's a significant IQ drop associated with the practice.

There is talk by some Democrats to go back to the Mueller report and try for some kind of lying charge or obstruction.

796 Good Morning ONT Morons; today is Wednesday, November 20, 2019. On this day in 1945 trials against 24 Nazi war criminals started at the Palace of Justice at Nuremberg. These trials became known as the Nuremberg Trials and their purpose was to hold Nazi war criminals accountable for 'war crimes' and crimes against humanity.

Once in his shop a workman wrought
With languid hand, and listless thought,
When through the open window's space
Behold!-a Camel thrust his face.
"My nose is cold," he meekly cried,
"Oh, let me warm it by thy side."
Since no denial word was said,
In came the nose,- in came the head,
As sure as sermon follows text
The long, excursive neck came next,
And then, as falls the threatening storm
In leap'd the whole ungainly form

Aghast the owner gazed around,
And on the rude invader frown'd,
Convinc'd as closer still he prest,
There was no room for such a guest,
Yet more astonish'd, heard him say,
"If incommoded, go your way,
For in this place I choose to stay."
Oh, youthful hearts, to gladness born,
Treat not this Arab lore with scorn.
To evil habit's earliest wile
Lend neither ear, nor glance, nor smile,
Choke the dark fountain ere it flows,
Nor even admit the Camel's Nose.

Little Brian Stelter: Say, Now That Our Newest Coup Attempts Are Failing, Maybe It's Time to Dust Off Our First Coup Plan, Invoking the 25th Amendment

You're not supposed to bat around the whole lineup if you keep striking out.

Yesterday, CNN announced that, with Russia Hoax 2.0 failing, they were going back to Russia Hoax 1.0-- claiming that Trump lied to Mueller or something.

Something Mueller himself was unable to establish.

Now they're going back ever further into the lineup.

Now they're trotting out the 25th Amendment coup plan again.

Of course for the more excitable here, this is an acknowledgement from CNN that the Democrats have nothing. Nothing at all here in Ukraine.

That suckers only 9" tall!!!!

What a rip off. Garden Gnomes got to be at least 18" so they can be seen from the street!!

I was going to get one but that's too small for the price.

Plus it'll get stolen the first night it's out.

76 Oh right. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are going to the point of the spear to convince the American people that Trump is mentally unfit for office--while he continues to run rings around them politically, strategically and tactically.

Trump anticipated this more than a week ago when he told the Washington press corps that "Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind."

He's not wrong.

I've gone into a long explanation long ago, but short and sweet: It is literally, in every way, EASIER to Impeach than it is to use the 25th Amendment procedures! You have to have 2/3 of BOTH Houses to pass it, plus the Ringleader has to be the Vice President.

Off-script [and the scripts were horribly inane, hackeneyed, and/or offensive, even by Beltway standards, with the help of Obama's dumb kid staffers], Obama was a mumbling nothingburger. In person, it was difficult to not laugh out loud, as his self-importance and baritone only emphasized what a lightweight he was demonstrating he was, instead of masking it.

I mentioned the difficulty earlier, but yes! The 25th Amendment is for "when the president has a stroke" type of events or when he is under for surgery. Impeachment is for criminal actions, not an incapacity, and the 25th is to handle those situations. In an actual incapacity it would not be hard to get the necessary concurence because at that point it is no longer partisan.

I know this is a relatively small portion of the public, probably something like 6 to 12% of the voting populace, but I'm truly interested to know if a majority of this group thinks this is legit or not, whether they get angry at what the Dems and Media are doing and whether that translates to support of Trump 2020.

Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple hobo, lemon hobo, coconut hobo, pepper hobo, hobo soup, hobo stew, hobo salad, hobo and potatoes, hobo burger, hobo sandwich. That - that's about it.

Well it was pretty much where he wanted to go too. It's just that he was incredibly lazy and was only interested in the perks of the job, not actually doing the job. I said before Reagan was an actor that wanted to be president. Obama is a man that just wanted to act like he was president.

This is also why I have severe doubts of Michelle ever trying to pull a Hillary and running for office to get the presidency. She's even lazier than Barak and doesn't even want to put forth the effort she would need to win office.

It seems like these anti-Trump "witnesses" [everything connected to this degrading farce deserves scare quotes] are pretty dumb, at least at this part of the game - and their lawyers, too. Both Bearclaw and Yovanovitch contradicted themselves multiple times [between deposition and live testimony], and Bearclaw has himself all tied up in an impossible web of perjury WRT ID of the non-WB WB.


It's good that the civic vandals are not that smart or clever, don't get me wrong. But wow, pathetic.


And WTFFF with Ukraine offering Bearclaw their defense minister job? Huh? I read it as absolute desperation on Zelensky's part [and I don't blame him, it's an awful situation and he's probably trying to do the right thing] - like Trump, but far worse, he faces an almost complete lack of capable people he can trust, who aren't tainted by corruption or vulnerable to pressure, to hire.

Trump's biggest oratorical problem is that he's so excited about the
next sentence he wants to say that he forgets he's already in the middle
of another sentence about something typically only tangentially
related...



That,and he'll abruptly abandon an entire train of thought
mid-sentence as soon as he figures he's got enough out that the crowd
more or less can see where he's going with it.



It's funny, but frustrating. But i'll take frenetic and packed with

trump has a teleprompter, or so I thought I've seen.

Of course, he goes off target every other sentence to talk about whatever he wants. which may make being his teleprompter guy the hardest working man in showbiz.

Yeah, though, he's pretty good off the cuff, "you'd be in jail" and even Mark Steyn was impressed with "keep your physician" riff.

But trump's biggest problem is his bullshitometry where he forgets something and just keeps on saying how great stuff is or how many many people like his ideas, or worse, that we've done the best thing better than anyone ever.

Yes he often phrases things like a rough-edged NYC real estate mogul, instead of in the dull hackneyed tones of a Beltway lawyer or politico - which is actually incredibly entertaining much of the time. And very American.

They're not well read, don't understand science, philosophy, or history, can's speak without a teleprompter, if they ever had an original thought it probably died of loneliness in less than an hour.

But they went to the "right" schools and have all the "right" connections and/or were born into the "right" family so they feel entitled to rule.

Sorry assholes, we used to be ruled by people like that. We shot them. And kept shooting them until they surrendered. Then they tried it again a couple of decades later and we shot them again until they gave up for good.

As Doc J said, he could survive question time (and would probably thrive, in my opinion.) He has probably done more off-the-cuff speaking than most of these posed, fragile, politicians can imagine doing. It is more than having a check-box-sheet brought to you everyday by your minders, he has to know stuff.


Yet, unlike Carter, Trump does not seem to be weighed down by any of it. He seems to enjoy it, all of it. The work, the complexity, the fighting, the media show, how so many things stand or fall on his word. It was like he got bored with the real estate, got bored with NY media, got bored with reality TV. What was left? POTUS!

444 First, the Koch's aren't conservative.
Second, at the very end of the article "George Soros, recommended last spring that donors invest several million dollars into Sixteen Thirty Fund, according to documents obtained at the time by POLITICO"

Documents reveal massive 'dark-money' group boosted Democrats in 2018
https://t.co/NRTQtdr8GM

The Sixteen Thirty Fund, a little-known nonprofit headquartered in Washington, spent $141 million on more than 100 left-leaning causes during the midterm election year, according to a new tax filing from the group. The money contributed to efforts ranging from fighting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and other Trump judicial nominees to boosting ballot measures raising the minimum wage and changing laws on voting and redistricting in numerous states.

The spending was fueled by massive anonymous donations, including one gift totaling $51.7 million. That single donation was more than the group had ever raised before in an entire year before President Donald Trump was elected. Most of the group's funders are likely to remain a mystery because federal law does not require "social welfare"-focused nonprofits to reveal their donors.

The group's 2018 fundraising surpassed any amount ever raised by a left-leaning political nonprofit, according to experts, who pointed to the Koch network and the Crossroads network as rare right-leaning groups that posted bigger yearly fundraising totals at the height of their powers.

The Sixteen Thirty Fund's rise last year is a sign that Democrats and allies have embraced the methods of groups they decried as "dark money" earlier this decade, when they were under attack from the money machines built by conservatives including the Kochs.

*Finished "Enterprise". A good intro to the Pacific War concentrating on a ship and crew. Stafford's "The Big E" is much more detailed, but since I read that in 1978 when I was 12 I have no idea if it has been updated to take into account released information and plain fact-checking.

Still, I recommend "Enterprise" as a good read.

He always said he didn't need the medal since he got to live. He had a Bronze Stat with a V for Valor. They put him in for a Silver Star just before he came back, but, that medal didn't come through.

AP Publishes Story Noting That 100,000 Migrant Children are In Detention, Pinning This on Trump;
Then They "Retract" The Story When They Learn This Figure is from 2015, and Therefore Not "News" Because It's Not Helpful to Democrats

Brave firefighters who need to be spat on in public.

The story's still true -- they're just retracting it because it fails to advance the political interests they're in the business of advancing.

Wouldn't want any context about Obama's detention policies cluttering up the narrative, huh, AP?



Deleting the story completely. Not just correcting it, rewriting it to reveal that Obama detained 100,000 precious migrant children in Concentration Camps in 2015.

No -- deleting it entirely from the record. Obliterating it. Erasing it.

Putting it in a pile and burning it.

Brave firefighters.






Brave firefighters, setting fire to all the inconvenient books and articles.

Brave firefighters, purging the past with Cleansing Flames to win the future.

A week ago James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released a hot mic rant by ABC's Amy Robach lamenting her network's deep-sixing of the Jeffery Epstein saga three years prior. In watching this video clip and tracking the media response to it I was reminded of a scene in Ray Bradbury's classic 1951 sci-fi novel Fahrenheit 451.

For the record, 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper burns. In Bradbury's novel, the state employs "firemen" to burn books lest the information they contain challenge the official state narrative. "Is it true that long ago firemen put fires out instead of going to start them?" a young woman asks fireman Guy Montag. Montag tells her that's a crazy idea. "Strange," she answers. "I heard once that a long time ago houses used to burn by accident and they needed firemen to stop the flames." Montag laughs.

Not too long ago, ambitious journalists, local and national, prided themselves on gathering information, and their editors prided themselves on publishing it. About 50 or so years ago, however, progressives started to seize control of universities, J-schools included, and newsrooms shifted leftwards with each new graduating class. By 2016, even major newsrooms had become firehouses. Their goal was not to report information but to manage it. In February 2017, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski unwittingly admitted as much. Said Brzezinski of President Trump, "He could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that is our job." Yes, sadly, that is their job.

The media is Orwell's nightmare. They exist not to inform the public, but to keep it ignorant.

Oh, and:




And Bearclaw puffed up his resume.



And he kind of admitted he's the one feeding the fake hearsay whistleblower his lines:



And he was believed to be an untrustworthy, partisan leaker:

"During the past several years, Unilever has breached consumer trust by representing the Ben n Jerry's Products as being made with milk and cream sourced exclusively from "happy cows" on Vermont dairies that participate in a special, humane "Caring Dairy" program," the lawsuit claims.

183 In RE: Estimated Bills.


Depending on your state's laws and the tariffs for your utility, estimated bills are permitted, but only for a limited time as an actual bill needs to be generated. Reasons for estimated bills vary, but common ones are inability to access the meter due to location (behind a locked gate), hazards (dog in the yard), and so on.


Check with your utility and your state utility board for further information.

250 Rarely does anyone in my town read a meter anymore. It's all bluetooth or something. They have readers on the garbage trucks that gets something like 90%. Then they have a guy in a car that drives to the other 10% and aims a more sensitive reader at your house from his car on the street. He gets 90% of those. I have been told by the meter guy that they only have to physically read less than 1% now.

It's actually quite clever.

272 Extraordinary earlier today when Schiff and Vindman's conspire as a team to prevent Vindman from identifying the agency of person he contacted outside his chain off command, who EVERYONE knows was the "whistleblower" Eric Ciaramella, in CIA.

As I understand it, Vindman's communication of Ukraine call to Ciarmella is not allowed, not in Vindman's chain of command, and not in compliance with the whistleblower statute.

By allowing Vindman not to answer the question the sworn testimonial record, or allowing him to take the 5th, Schiff succeeds in protecting Vindman from a slam-dunk criminal admission.

But let's not kid ourselves. That part of his testimony proves beyond all reasonable doubt, that Vindman broke the law here. If he felt so strongly about what he heard on the call, HE should have availed himself of the Whistleblower rules and reported it like a man.

Instead, this pussy gets protected the bigger pussy, Schiff. But WTH is Barr, the FBI and President Trump and his staff? Vindman CLEARLY broke the law here, and deserves to get prosecuted.

On Prosecution within the Federal Government, we have bigger problems to talk about. With the McCabe case news today, the delays in the Horowitz report, the Flynn case, the leadership overseeing the Flynn case, the decisions not to prosecute (democrats or their darlings) and to prosecute (anyone in Trump's orbit), it's clear as day that the US Justice Dept. has it's own very serious "Deep State" resistance problem.

Trump holds the most powerful position in the world. He has Constitutional powers. I criticize Trump for whoever he has assembled as his legal and political team. If I'm Trump, I immediately fire off a public order to Barr something like this:

"Barr, given your recent speech, the facts surrounding leaks coming from by persons in my State Department, including to the current Whistleblower involved in the impeachment trial, the DOJ corruption alleged by Gen. Flynn, the findings of OIG Horowitz, and many other troubling reports about the existence of an organized "resistance" within federal bureaucracies, I hereby order to you select 7 federal judges by random drawing and to assign them to review the current cases involving prosecutorial decisions related to McCabe, Comey, Hillary Clinton, Vindman and any other federal employee criminally referred in any OIG report issued or to be issued by Horowitz, and to order this panel to decide if they agree with the current assigned prosecutors for each case, and I hereby order you to empower to that panel with the power and authority by majority vote to overrule any decisions related to those cases that involve prosecutorial discretion."

276 If I understand the article correctly, the Admiral didn't defy Trump's pardon. He has referred Gallagher's case to a review board to determine his suitability to be a SEAL. The article also doesn't say whether the referral was made before or after the pardon.

I don't know much about the UCMJ, so I can't speak to whether the Adm.'s action reflects insubordination or not. I also don't know whether the pardon makes the referral moot or not.

Maybe some of the smart military types here can shed some light on it.

DOJ Releases More Information About Strzok in Motion to Dismiss His Lawsuit Against Them

Strzok filed suit, laughably, challenging the DOJ's determination that he should be fired.

The Department of Justice released documents Monday outlining a slew of "security violations" and flagrantly "unprofessional conduct" by anti-Trump ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok -- including his alleged practice of keeping sensitive FBI documents on his unsecured personal electronic devices, even as his wife gained access to his cellphone and discovered evidence that he was having an affair with former FBI attorney Lisa Page.

The DOJ was seeking to dismiss Strzok's lawsuit claiming he was unfairly fired and deserves to be reinstated as chief of the counterespionage division at the FBI. In its filing, the DOJ included an August 2018 letter to Strzok from the DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which said in part that Strzok had engaged in a "dereliction of supervisory responsibility" by failing to investigate the potentially classified Hillary Clinton emails that had turned up on an unsecured laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner as the 2016 election approached.

The situation became so dire, OPR said, that a case agent in New York told federal prosecutors there that he was "scared" and "paranoid" that "somebody was not acting appropriately" and that "somebody was trying to bury this."

...

Additionally, DOJ and OPR noted that although Strzok claimed to have "double deleted" sensitive FBI materials from his personal devices, his wife nonetheless apparently found evidence of his affair on his cellphone -- including photographs and a hotel reservation "ostensibly" used for a "romantic encounter." Strzok didn't consent to turning over the devices for review, according to OPR, even as he acknowledged using Apple's iMessage service for some FBI work.

"[My wife] has my phone. Read an angry note I wrote but didn't send you. That is her calling from my phone. She says she wants to talk to [you]. Said we were close friends nothing more," one of Strzok's text to Page read, according to the filing.

...

Strzok's wife allegedly threatened to send Page's husband some of the photographs from Strzok's phone.

One quick vocabularly point: I've never trusted myself to use the word "ostensibly" because I wasn't sure if it meant apparently or supposedly/purportedly.

And that's a big difference; it's it's "apparently," that means it's your own take on the evidence; if it's "supposedly," that's someone else trying to push their take on you.

Turns out, it means both -- either apparently or supposedly, but not necessarily actually.

Here's the etymology, which suggests it started out as mostly meaning "purportedly:"

1730, "capable of being shown, that can be shown or seen, presentable," from French ostensible, from Latin ostens-, past-participle stem of ostendere "to show, expose to view; to stretch out, spread before; exhibit, display," from assimilated form of ob "in front of" (see ob-) + tendere "to stretch," from PIE root *ten- "to stretch." Meaning "apparent, professed, put forth or held out as real" is from 1771.

So if that one's been bothering you, you're welcome.

Below, some tweets containing screenshots of the filing.

Unpossible! Not at my FBI! No reasonable supervisory agent would pursue something like this. Sadly, more online training may be needed.

That's a really bad picture of her. She looks a lot hotter in some of the other ones I've seen.

There was a discussion here a while back where the consensus that emerged was that she was "work hot", i.e. you'd think she was hot if she worked in your office, which is a different thing from being hot enough to be a lingerie model or whatever.

I think you take enjoyment in life where you can. The report is quite amusing and deeply embarrassing.

I also note that none of the 'decline to prosecute' decisions preclude ever prosecuting, it just hasn't happened to date. Barr seems a different sort, and the report repeated emphasized how badly he damaged the FBI's reputation and ability to function.

And that's before we even get into the doctored 302s.

You see, you want to hit all the charges at once, and there are still more things coming out.

Yeah, they had an affair. It wasn't cover, and the messages and statements pretty much lay it out.

The part where they tried to come up with a cover story and he says his wife knows about the flowers he sent her...that's actual adultery.

Sure they would. They'd make a copy to use for their own blackmail purposes, and as assassination insurance.
Look at it this way: Hillary KNOWS you've had your hands on the data. Is she going to trust your word that you didn't make a copy or even stash the original?

No, she isn't. You'd better have something to hold over her or your life isn't worth a plugged nickel at that point.

These people are not smart, they are corrupt, they are vicious and they thought they were untouchable, so when it became apparent their little operation was beginning to be exposed, they sought to find ways to mitigate their exposure.

242 I think the answer is that L vs G was an add in to the story later on, when courtly love and unrequited passion was all cool, centuries after the other stories of knightly derring do were out there.

I agree L and G is probably a later addition. I'm saying I think it's odd L's name is supposed to signal he's a sneaky cat given L and G is a later addition AND all the Christian imagery where L is a clear stand-in for Christ.

278 Clay Travis @ClayTravis
Last week 23 million people watched Vikings-Cowboys on NBC's Sunday Night Football. So far the most watched day of the Trump impeachment hearings - if you combine all the broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC together - was 13 million people.

Clay Travis @ClayTravis
It's important to note that while the media wants to sell you on the country's incredible polarization and social media would convince you a second Civil War is near, most people in this country would much rather watch a regular season football game.


Clay Travis @ClayTravis
Last night Monday Night Football, airing on cable, outrated impeachment coverage even if you add up viewers on all channels. MNF also outrated all news coverage of impeachment combined that was airing at the same time as the game on all cable channels combined.

Clay Travis @ClayTravis
I suspect football is more popular because unlike with impeachment we don't already know how the football games will end. (House impeaches, senate won't vote to remove). But don't allow the media to convince you that the nation is in any way obsessed with this charade. Not true.

@ClayTravis
More fun with numbers: every episode of the final season of Game of Thrones nearly quadrupled the viewership of the most watched day of the impeachment hearings so far.

I am convinced that when these hearings started, Schiff's plan was to do a quick 2 week public run through, toss it to Nadler, have his committee kick out Articles of Impeachment in 48 hours (they're already written, obviously) and then they would give it a fast vote on the last legislative day of the year (Dec 11 or 12) and then go home for the Christmas none of them believe in. Looked great on paper.

BUT their big problem is those 20 or 30 Dem Reps in Trump districts - Given Schiff's wild claims, I have no doubt that he massively overpromised and oversold what he had. "Oh yeah, I got 20 smoking guns, I got the quid pro quo, it's gonna be easy, it's gonna be great!" So they've been expecting that, and instead - they get this Pathetic Clown Show, which is turning out to be even worse than the Mueller fiasco. If those 20 or 30 members start to crack, and start thinking that they really dont' wanna be unemployed so fast, then this entire thing falls apart.

RUSSIAN Propaganda Site Daily Caller Releases "Doctored Video" of Impeachment Hero Eric Swallwell, and Must Be Deplatformed Immediately
Plus: More Bearclaw!

This guy's underwear is working harder than Ana Navarro's spanx.

Additional thoughts on the fake impeachment:








That "Lieutenant Colonel Bearclaw" joke of CarpeDonktum has perhaps been confirmed by new reporting:



I'd like to direct your attention to this original reporting from Deb Heine from a couple of weeks back.

A Lieutenant Colonel Hickman -- who has served alongside Vindman -- reported that Vindman would routinely "bash Americans" while speaking to his Russian counterparts, usually in Russian, though there were interpreters to let Hickman know what Vindman was saying.

The New York Times claims this is "unsusbantiated."

Strange. Deb Heine was able to substantiate it with just a couple of phone calls. Perhaps the Times was not motivated or incentivized to substantiate it...?

But Hickman’s former boss, Thomas Lasch, a highly respected simulation strategist at the Joint Multinational Simulation Center in Grafenwoehr, Germany, corroborated his story on Twitter and to American Greatness.

"Jim, I remember exercise ATLAS VISION and this incident. I was your Boss at the time and was satisfied when you told me that you 'took care of it' (meaning then MAJ Vindman’s disparaging comments about the U.S. to the Russians ) and I just put things together this past week," Lasch tweeted.

Lasch vouched for Hickman in a second tweet: "Everyone on this thread should know that Jim Hickman's patriotism and honesty is unparalleled. He is one of my personal heroes." He added: "This is not about Trump! This is about an officer [Vindman] that is disloyal to the United States of America."

American Greatness was able to reach Lasch through his LinkedIn account. He verified that the recently established Twitter account in his name vouching for Hickman was indeed his.

A second individual who witnessed Vindman's troubling behavior in Grafenwoher, has supplied American Greatness with a statement.

The individual--a General Services Employee with the Department of the Army--wished to stay anonymous due to fear of retribution at his place of work and for his family.


"Yes I do remember this, LTC Vindman was uncomfortably supportive of Obama. He seemed almost self-hating of white Americans, and made comments to the Russians during Atlas Vision 13 about how, in my own words, American's are too big for our own britches and not exceptional. He also spoke in Russian and we really didn't know what he was saying. I remember giving him shit about it, then telling LTC Hickman about it, and he said something to him [LTC Vindman]. He seemed like a poor performer, not too motivated, and a bit of a sluggish officer."

Why is it that Nice Deb, who used to Guest Blog here when I took time off, can manage to work the telephone and New York Times reporters can't?


I have a cryptic tip from a source: the tip suggests that a look through four years of Vindman's CV -- four years that are not well accounted for -- would be rewarding.

I don't know what this means.

Benghazi hero Mark "Oz" Geist, and Robert McNeil, who iced Bin Ladin, don't think much of Lt. Col. Bearclaw:

Nicotine poisoning will induce seizures, paralysis and death, but again, if it looks suspicious, they'll look for high concentrations.

Of course, when the vic has dirt on Clintons, it never looks suspicious to cops.

That's the perspective of the kool-aid drinkers. They see it as "all these people can't be wrong". They have no idea what's happened since 2015, they have been lied to by the media and the pols, and now they are being told the Vindmans of the govt. bureaucracy are heroes standing up to the Big Meany Trump.

accounted for -- would be rewarding.

Infantry officer, served active duty from 1999 to the present, and only 1 combat deployment in 2004-2005? The guy's a scummy shit-weasel, everyone knows it and actively avoids him, so he moved from the hard alpha lifestyle of an infantry officer to foreign service, where he has more power and can let his liberal/establishment freak flag fly.

I've worked with similar officers at US embassies....I don't know if it's the assignment or their natural personality, but you can't trust a word they say, and they'll throw you under the bus for the slightest personal gain.

Warrant Officers are (in theory, at least) technical experts in their MOS and are selected from the enlisted ranks based on a track record of suprerior technical performance. In Army the exception is Warrant Officers who are pilots and usually enter the Army directly through Warrant Officer Candidate School. They are afforded the courtesies of officer status and (again, in theory) are not in command or leadership positions.

Technically, only WO1s are mister. The rest are usually called "chief". I've seen plenty of enlisted say "sir" to warrant officers, though, and it's appropriate.

As for weight and fitness standards, you can get away with quite a bit. The physical fitness test isn't THAT hard, and you can be a fatty and still pass as long as you've done a decent amount of order. This guy's 44, so off the top of my head...2 mile run in 18:45, 31 pushups in 2 minutes, and maybe 35 situps in 2 minutes? With his position, too, he would be better setup to try and pencil-whip his scores. As for being overweight...it's a weird system where they measure your waist and neck, height and weight, calculate your body fat. I think 28% is the max? I don't know....if you're 6 foot like me and under 203 lbs, you automatically pass and don't get taped, so I don't know the details.

Here's my read:

It sounds to me like Vindman was leaking like a sieve to Dems, and Schiff latched onto the Zelensky call as his thing.

He made up a bunch of shit about it, and picked Ciamarella as the cutout to be the "whistleblower," which would protect Superchunk's identity, and leave him open to modify the transcript for the desired "evidence" (like the Flynn 302).

But then, unexpectedly, the transcript was classified above his pay-grade, and Trump released it from under them.

Whoops! Whoopsie!
