The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Biden's my man, because who better to tamp down the enthusiasm of the maniacal farther-left of the Democrat party? He's a tedious old fool who is a boring speaker, has no signature cause or accomplishments, and panders to the last people in the news without being able to suggest concrete entitlement payouts because he is terrified of making a tactical error and alienating some other group. His only saving grace is that he comes off as the doddering uncle who brings candy for the kids (and then paws them and smells their hair: but that's a different issue).

Is he really going to energize the Antifa fascists to go vote and stuff ballot boxes and intimidate Republican voters? Are the insane Gaia-loving enviro-wackadoodles going to rush to the polls to vote early and often to support a 77-year-old career politician who looks like everything they hate?

However, a credible argument could be made for any one of the 93 people currently campaigning for the Democrat nomination...Warren is a shrewish, nagging middle school principal; Sanders is a crazy dude who wandered in off the street and smells faintly of vomit and patchouli; Harris is a nasty and hectoring backstabber who rifles through the overcoats in the den looking for wallets; and Buttigieg looks like a cartoon character who wandered in from another dimension. And the rest of them? Even weirder and dumber.

Any one of these people should be beatable by President Trump, in spite of their many advantages; first and foremost of which is the Media-Industrial-Complex being completely and totally in the bag for the Democrats. But that may not be such a bad thing; disseminating without a critical eye every idiotic comment from every corner of the leftist cesspit certainly won't endear the Democrat party to the American people.

Commenter Monty James made an important point this morning...

It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed.
As much as I am sometimes frustrated by the President's insistence on getting the last word, simply not caving works wonders!

49 A good plan is not one that hinges on things going just so, but that results in a win for most probable scenarios. It is flexible and robust, allowing for the seizing of opportunities when available and doesn't collapse at setbacks.

Trump seizes opportunities, yes, but he acts with intention. These opportunities serve his larger goals. He does have objectives, all of which might be said to tie into the grand objective of MAGA. When it comes to these objectives he has various ideas on how they might be achieved and he pursues the path he views most likely to succeed, alternating as necessar.

Trump's no dummy, he is the master of changing the conversation to what HE wants to talk about.



From the beginning, I decided the only two candidates I could support were Trump and Carson, becuase they were NOT GOP, and I was -- and still am-- angry about Obamacare. I also think a business person is a potentially better politician than a career politician, who is only good at making speeches and getting elected.Carson is too nice, so I glommed onto Trump.

I am happy to see that I, and many others, are correct.

57 The maxim Trump follows is "L'audace, l'audace, toujours, l'audace!"

audacity - fast, open, obnoxious, surprising, it always disturbs everyone who thinks everything should be carefully measured and calculated first.

It also keeps everyone guessing and jumping, and having to react on the fly. And someone who likes to operate that way is always going to have an advantage over those that don't. Maybe he'll make mistakes - but for every mistake, he'll have a success, and he'll have 10 successes for every One that someone more careful would have had.

And the photo is great.


If I could make Trump do one small thing, it would be to turn his twitter/fight-back/tenacity on the term "racist". A concept long trashed, a word long rendered meaningless or inverted - but one that was important and worth recovering.


Obviously none of his "controversial" stuff has anything to do with "race", and much mileage and fun to be had in systematically debunking the slanders and especially hanging the newly revived meaningful/morally powerful term of "racism" around the necks that deserve it. This Rep. Pressley might as well have just screamed "all of y'all are no more than tribes and categories and grievance groups, you ain't people!!!" the other day.

The only time I remember seeing her challenged was with that Million Little Pieces book. Some of her audience got mad that the author embellished stuff, and Oprah originally defended him, because he'd been on her show, so he must be great, right? When the furor didn't die down, she has the guy back on, AND TURNS ON HIM.

128 I pointed out in the previous thread that both successful Democrat Presidential candidates in the last 40 years had to have assists from a unenthusiastic Republican base to win.

And that still wasn't enough by itself.

Clinton had to split the vote.
Obama was a historic first.

McCain was a garbage candidate but Obama only got 52.9%.
And McCain sure as hell wasn't polling 90% Republican approval.

Remember: Everything Trump has and will do between now and November 2020 is to 1) Drive Republican enthusiasm, 2) win over swing voters, and 3) divide the Democrats

The last three days have been textbook perfect in delivering on all three.

Getting the Democrats to hate him, to direct their hate at him only makes him stronger with the base.
Because we see: What they say about him, they are saying about us.

Find me a single Democrat who is careful to make the distinction.

PS: Those Obama voters who voted for Trump? They are also hearing what the Democrats are saying about them.

153 Mitt Romney @ Twitter



The president's comments were destructive, demeaning and
disunifying. The president has a unique and noble calling to unite the
American people--of all different races, colors and creeds or natural
origin. In that respect, the president failed badly.

People can disagree about politics, but to tell Americans to go back
to where they came from is unseemly and over the line. And it sends the
wrong message to our enemies that that we are disunited.

It all depends on the super delegates.

On the second ballot, they're allowed to vote as they wish. Do they then vote as a block for an agreed upon candidate (like Kamala), or do they split across several forcing a third ballot?

If that third ballot comes up, I predict chaos to ensue, which is the perfect place for someone like Hillary to frame herself as a unity candidate.

Yes, I routinely get headaches and a racing heart from anxiety. The thing that works for me is deep breathing. Yes, I know how that sounds but it works. Breath in through the nose; hold for 5 seconds; breathe out through the mouth. Repeat as necessary, holding the breath for increasing lengths of time.

Good advice.

Many of the adverse effects of anxiety attacks come from shallow, rapid breathing. It's actually over-oxygenization. The deep slow breathing, will actually help bring you back into balance.

Well, it's important not to get too emotionally invested. Much like job interviews, being too invested will cause you to fuck up. It's ok to fuck up from time to time too, and it's never the end of the world(unless the chica is a murderer). You can always tell yourself you've got reasonable odds of not dying here, which means you always have another shot with other women.

The Squad made abject asses out of themselves yesterday and the president was clearly proven right in his taunts. That settled it.

But here comes Mitt with his virtue-signalling to "save the day." And you know what? It backfired because all the MSM can talk about now is how Romney walked away when asked if Trump's tweet's "were racist." They don't care that he tweeted criticism of Trump. It earned him NOTHING from the media--but it cost what precious little credibility he may sill have had.

>>i say it was an unnecessary move.

I think you are mistaking his goal. Nancy was trying to distance the rest of the Democrat caucus from the Squad and their comments. Her goal was to get the media to focus on her message and claim that the Squad was only speaking for themselves.

Trump wanted to make sure that the Squad's message was the Democrats message and he forced Nancy to defend the Squad and bring them back into the fold.

Trump wants to run on loving America, putting America and Americans first and against socialism, anti-semitism, Islamic terror and securing the borders and getting rid of illegals. That is much easier to do when the Squad is the face of the Democrat Party.

291 Yeah, Trump really stepped in it--they've gone from calling him a Nazi racist to calling him a racist Nazi.

He should have said nothing.

PS: Did you all forget that not too long ago there was a very popular country song about "America, love it or leave it?"
You know, very popular with the folks that swept Reagan to a 49 state landslide?
I'm sure they'll hang their heads in shame for such bad think and not vote at all, nope not at all. Calling them racist makes them stay home and hide.

292 I believe Biden is a weak, vulnerable candidate prone to mistakes and inconsistent in his positions. But I also believe it is a substantial mistake to underestimate him.

For Democrats, these races are not often about the candidate per se. They are contests Democrats play like a team sport. They turn on their machine and drive votes to the polls no matter who the candidate is. Add a significant amount of TDS, and things become a bit more energetic.

I suppose in the end the game never changes in the fact you have to amass enough votes to win. But to be frank, we're not very good at that. In fact,we had our asses handed to us because we were not prepared when Democrats moved onto new devices like vote harvesting and focusing on post election stealing of votes. So I have little faith in the Republican jalopy.

Trump may bring a lot of unknowns and firsts that make things hard to predict. I suppose in a sane world you could look at what he's done and stands for, as opposed to the other side, and believe this can't even be close. But the world is no longer sane and that people even lean towards what Democrats are peddling is frightening not just electorally, but to the future of our country.

In the end I believe very strongly that Trump will win. That right and good for the balance of our country will trample socialism, the Democrats loathing of America, their fondness for people who are not citizens, socialism, their shaming of success, a lack of family values, a fondness for killing the most vulnerable among us, big government, negative constitutional liberty and the destruction of individual rights. But if we treat this as something other than an existential battle, we will lose and lose big.

294 It all depends on the super delegates.

On the second ballot, they're allowed to vote as they wish. Do they then vote as a block for an agreed upon candidate (like Kamala), or do they split across several forcing a third ballot?

If that third ballot comes up, I predict chaos to ensue, which is the perfect place for someone like Hillary to frame herself as a unity candidate.

I think if they're writing off 2020, then it's an effort to wrest control of the Party from the other side.

The Activist Left seems to really want this win.

The Establishment seems a bit more muted on the matter.

I would be far from surprised if the Establishment was trying to give the race to the crazies in an effort to purge them from leadership within the party afterwards.

But the race is far too chaotic right now to think that's working. Obama left a power vacuum at the top of the party that was supposed to be filly by Hillary (fat joke implied). Since she failed miserably and Obama's making no effort to establish control, there is only chaos in its place.

Then they will have no impediment to the Plan.

364 There's a Jewish synagogue up the street that has a sign that they post "words of wisdom" or quotes from their bible every week or 2. They've been getting REALLY political lately. They "reached out" to their muslham "brothers" after the mosque shooting in New Zealand and now there's a quote about "accepting aliens because you were once an alien."

Most of these current Republicans are double talking cowards. I only hope someone emerges during his next term that has some spine.

369 I wish Trump had started his tweets on the twats about how much their statements show their hate for America and if they don't love it they can leave it. Framing it as he did at the beginning started the narrative on a bad foot and I don't think it was a 3d chess move at all. I'd rather be able to just debate the anti Americanism instead of going through and defending why Trump wasn't being racist.

378 The sine quo non of a legitimate political party is to advance an agenda broadly supported by your voter base.

142 Overthinking the Dem nominee for 2020 ...

It won't be Biden.

Since 1980, they've had 2 successful candidates.

Clinton won because of significant dissatisfaction of Republican voters who split with Perot.
Obama was because he was historic plus a dose of GOPe fatigue.

Hillary was to be another historic.

Trump polls 89% support of Republicans.

Without historic at the top of the ticket, the Dems have no motivation

And they'll never get Obama level turnout and support from blacks again--even if Obama endorsed him, they weren't voting for Biden then or now

open a brokerage account. If it is your first time you might want to go to an office and meet someone and talk about your plans. I see Fidelity offices around here a lot but if I had to pick a brokerage it would be Schwab. I assume they still have offices but it has been a long time. Of course you don't have to do that as you can do it all online. But if you are new, certainly talk with someone even if only on the phone.

296 A man arrested after federal law enforcement officers found more than 1,000 guns at a home in one of the richest areas of Los Angeles has been charged with 64 felony counts, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.

I don't believe there is an unlawful quanity of guns, so the "1,000 guns" is click bait.

Los Angeles police said at the time of the seizure, which it called one of the largest recoveries of weapons in LAPD history, that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives received information that a person was selling and manufacturing illegal guns, which led to the search warrant.

This is a big flag .. LAPD is notorious for "loosing" seized guns .. which end up in the collections of members of LAPD

F4U-5P Bu No 122169, first -5P built, of VC-62 off USS Leyte was shot down over North Korea. The pilot was rescued but then the H-5H rescue helicopter ran out of fuel, killing all aboard.

337 Communists have been trying to use race as their entry card into the
U.S. for 100 years. Richard Wright, a communist at the time, wrote
extensively (in the 1930s and 40s) about their goal to use race and
white guilt to grow and fortify communism in the United States and how
it would work. In his most famous book, Native Son he wrote about
the criminal "Bigger Thomas," who despite being a rapist, a murderer,
and an abuser, is excused by the communists and defended because he's
such a clear example of what the US "society" creates by being racist.

What's going on now is EXACTLY this same scheme, or maybe they really believe it, I don't know.

It's
sorta amazing to watch this stuff and see the Frankfurt school, WEB
Dubois, Richard Wright (Obama hero) and global communism advancing the same exact plot they've been using for a century and no one seems to recognize it--except maybe Lindsey Graham, for the love of God.

So, when a show they like features talk of a McDonald's sauce that hasn't existed in 20+ years, they latch onto it and scream at McDonald's to bring it back. They do this in the internet space and in meat space. The idea is that there's ironic fun to it, but you can tell that it stems from some kind of void in their lives.

364 349 People have nothing in their lives that give them meaning, so they attach themselves to memes ironically in order to fill the day. So, when a show they like features talk of a McDonald's sauce that hasn't existed in 20+ years, they latch onto it and scream at McDonald's to bring it back. They do this in the internet space and in meat space. The idea is that there's ironic fun to it, but you can tell that it stems from some kind of void in their lives.

Modern life is really sad in many ways.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison at July 16, 2019 10:11 AM (VyAV0)

Who doesn't have a void in their life to one degree or another, though? Plenty of non-basement-dwellers have followed what they were assured was the path to meaning and fulfillment, only to find it was a lie. So they sunk years and years of their lives into the effort of it, for nothing.
Posted by: Insomniac at July 16, 2019 10:28 AM (NWiLs)

===========

I would argue that something like 99% of the population naturally have voids in their lives.

It's a question of what to fill it with.

Do you go with something like Christianity, which provides large answers and attempts to give you purpose?

Or do reject it because believing in a 2,000 year old carpenter as your savior is just so unreasonable and, instead, you will fill that void with corporate product and meaningless ironic actions?

The Rothschild's weren't commies.

"The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained in one block and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed... Therefore they sent their emissaries into the field to exploit the question of slavery and to open an abyss between the two sections of the Union."

Besides the obvious lying and hiding out from his job during the Appalachian trail incident, the main thing he never recovered from was when, in his comeback bid, he admitted pretty openly "yeah you know that whole "conservative" act I put on when I was Governor?

People have nothing in their lives that give them meaning, so they

attach themselves to memes ironically in order to fill the day. So, when

a show they like features talk of a McDonald's sauce that hasn't

existed in 20+ years, they latch onto it and scream at McDonald's to

bring it back. They do this in the internet space and in meat space. The

idea is that there's ironic fun to it, but you can tell that it stems

from some kind of void in their lives. Modern life is really sad in many ways.

$25,000. Have watched all the episodes about this, including the finale last Sunday, where Mike, Frank, and Danielle present the van to Aerosmith. I'm not 100% sure how much it cost to preserve the van( Aerosmith and the pickers didn't want to fully restore it, just make it safe to drive and replace and age some of the non salvageable metal on it. Inside, the drivers seat still is bolted to 2 x 4's , etc.) The pickers were going to do it at cost only, but Aerosmith ended up giving them an additional $10,000 grand as a reward for their efforts. Well worth watching the episode, although man, the guys in Aerosmith close up really are showing their age.

496 I find the perceived lack of meaning to be a self-inflicted wound. It used to be, my parents being vile outliers, that raising a family, living a moral life and participating in basic community activities gave life "meaning". Now the left has so debased the idea of family and morality, and expanded community to include "the world", that many people are left grasping.

I refuse to believe such polls have any basis in reality. Totally made up numbers, from fudged sampling that nobody believes has any correlation to actual voters.

So Biden still has money behind him. And the mid level schlubs must do whatever they can to crawl out of the slime pit into the big time. I guess if you don't register any numbers, that means they're trying to tell you to go away, because I don't believe for a second Hickenloopy doesn't have ANY support, nor does Hippy Dippy Chick.

All at odds with the trend.

I think the most charitable reading of such things is to suggest that humans cannot contemplate the mind of the Creator, so we attribute to Him such notions as "hate" and "love," when in reality, we have no clue how that works.

It's an open question, as far as I'm concerned, as to whether the Creator has any affinity for us at all, or that the Supreme Being is even remotely interested in our comings and goings.


I believe God is God, and He does love us. I don't fear His hate. What scares me is His indifference.

Posted by: Insomniac at July 16, 2019 10:52 AM (NWiLs)

No. God is all good, he IS "good." Evil is the choice of the irrational in opposition to the rational movement toward the Good. Esau chose his own path by choosing the irrational, evil is the opposition of the good, divorce again is a free will choice to move against the objective good. Those are all things that man chooses in opposition to the rational, the Good which is, who is God. God allows men the free will choice to not choose Him and objective goodness and the consequences of those choices, but He doesn't "hate." He only loves and wants what is good, but doesn't stand in your way when you choose.......poorly (or even forgive the poor choice without your recognizing it, asking for forgiveness, doing penance, and accepting the consequences).
The supra-mundane mind of vast intelligence does not hate, it only allows the action of the free will. Being subject to the consequences of sin isn't because God hates.

Recently I started using DeFunkify for laundry detergent and it seems to be working well. Gets out the odors and doesn't irritate my skin. Also simplifies my laundry routine, since I use it on both regular and delicate loads -- no special Woolite loads.

The Morning Report - 07/16/19

suicsqua.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and of course the lead story is yesterday's utter fiasco of "The Squad" - that the four frosh Congressmen of the so-called "Justice Democrats" - who called a press conference ostensibly to slam President Trump for his "racist" Tweets against them, but instead unleashed a torrent of anti-American, anti-Semitic racialist bilge that, while disgusting to have to witness, nevertheless had the effect of making them and what they spewed the face of the Democrat Party.

I would surely have loved to have been a fly on the wall of Nancy Palsi's office as she drained her liquor cabinet and then started guzzling her own cologne or the can of Lysol under the bathroom sink, pausing only to shriek vulgarities in between swigs that would make George S. Patton blush and even Hillary say "jeez lady, get a grip!" Can you blame her? The Democrat Party, with the vital help of an allied agitprop media, has for decades successfully cloaked itself with an illusion of love-of-country as it did everything possible to destroy it while blaming Republicans and conservatives for the country's ills. Even during the Obama years, the illusion was maintained, gossamer thin as it was by that time, mostly because there was no one in the GOP to challenge it. Now, what took well over 100 years to establish is gone in the blink of an eye, and with it perhaps the last coffin nail in any chance the Democrats might have had of beating President Trump in 2020 has been nailed shut.

Once again, Donald Trump's mere presence in the White House and more crucially his willingness to defend himself, his policies and by extension defend all real Americans and this nation loudly, proudly with Queens accent and all, is what got us here. And thank G-d for it! It needs to be emphasized here that the President did not instigate this. He was reacting to the lies being perpetrated by Chiquita Khruschev and her cohorts about "concentration camps" and other phony "crimes against humanity" allegedly perpetrated by ICE, DHS, CBP et al on the illegal alien invaders who are the real criminals here for trying to jump our borders and abuse our amnesty laws. At the same time, these four have been able to turn almost their entire party into a veritable Greek chorus of anti-American, anti-Semitic, racialism and historical revisionism that heretofore went unanswered and allowed to fester.

President Trump used their words against them, and retorted when he dared utter the phrase (albeit with slightly different language) that every real American knows so well: America - Love It Or Leave It. Boom. He was actually much more charitable in his attack stating that the four miscreants should instead of trashing America go back to the places they escaped from, work to improve them, and then return and report back. Naturally they and the media twisted the President's words just like every other day ending in "Y" but his point was made. Well, that of course could not stand and so, like moths to a flame, the four idiots called a press conference.

The question is, is Trump playing 11-dimensional chess or is it just his willingness to confront bullshit, not back down and in doing so force the Left to invariably hoist itself on its own petard? I think it's a bit of both. Whatever he did, he forced Nancy Palsi who was desperate to try and keep a lid on these freaks to publicly support them and call for a censure of Trump. That is, he forced the Democrat House Majority Leader to publicly rise to the defense of anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, racialism and global socialism before the entirety of the American people. As to the RINOs, "Con" artist frauds and anyone in the Cuck-servative media who is saying that this was a titanic and fatal error on Trump's part, that is so far removed from reality that you're not wrong; you're lying.

Check and mate, Mr. President.

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

Don't miss the sidebar item where the lady is poormouthing over $500K (yep, half a million) in student loan debt to buy a "doctorate in acupuncture" from this place:

"Bastyr University is an alternative medicine university with campuses in Kenmore, Washington, and San Diego, California. Programs include naturopathy, acupuncture and Oriental medicine, nutrition, herbal medicine, ayurvedic medicine, psychology, and midwifery"

Yay, I've got a degree in herbal medicine!

The Palsi and Schemer are praying their allies in the media will muzzle/ignore them.

But there is no way that these four tits are going to be silent when Trump so much as breathes let alone wins on the issues. And they will be forced to cover them.

And when the convention comes and they are marginalized, then that could cause irreparable damage to the party. Maybe they split and take enough people with them to the Socialist Party.

54 Time for my weekly repost. Three more people have entered the race since this was posted, and Swalwell got out early though my comment on his candidacy still stands.

Hickenlooper wouldn't condemn the "protestors" who took down the US flag and raised the Mexican one at an ICE facility in his state. I think that probably is a net negative for him. He is no longer my aspirational Dem. Maybe its Tim Ryan now.

Feeling the Ryanmentum?

Predictions for someone to google and point to and say what do YOU know anyway:

Won't make it to Iowa:

Marianne Williamson (ultimate vanity candidacy, she won't be able to qualify for the ballot)
Wayne Messam (Who? Exactly)
Tulsi Gabbard (she's burned too many bridges)


Drops after Iowa:

John Delaney (self funded vanity)
Andrew Yang (self funded vanity)
Julian Castro (old, old news)
Amy Klobuchar (last finisher for the women)
Kirsten Gillibrand (next-to-last finisher for the women)
Seth Moulton (maybe - he might not get to Iowa, candidacy doesn't have any reason for being. Against the Iraq War? So was/is Trump.)
Eric Swalwell (candidacy is to troll Trump - a costly way to do it)
Jay Inslee

Drops after NH:

John Hickenlooper (honestly I just needed to put someone here)

Drops after SC:

Beto O'Rourke (he can fund himself past a poor showing in Iowa, and the big dropout after Iowa will make him look like a mover until he gets to SC)

Drops after Super Tuesday:

Elizabeth Warren (nobody really likes her anyway - Super Tuesday will demonstrate that definitively)
Cory Booker (he will already be reeling from going nowhere with the black vote in SC)


That will leave the field with this:

Joe Biden
Pete Buttigieg
Bernie Sanders
Kamala Harris

Bernie will run to the convention regardless of where he is. But he is already done.

Now here it gets tricky - Harris I don't think can win but the Dems can't let the last candidates all be white men. UNLESS - she drops out, immediately endorses Biden, and Biden says, immediately, I will be glad to have her on my ticket when we get to the convention. Despite the fact I think he won't win, this might actually make him win. If those campaigns are too bitter with each other to do that, that only leaves one candidate:

Buttigieg

75 It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed. Trump's tweets about these goils was as satisfying as the Tacoma PD making a good commie out of that maggot who threw a Molotov cocktail at the detention center.

100 Polls, polls, polls.

After 2016, does anyone really trust a poll? When I hear people talking about the polling numbers, I hear "Madam Cleo said....".

In 2018, our last Senate race in Tennessee, the polls had Phil Bredesen leading Marsha Blackburn by 5 points for 6 months and even my own State party was at our local meetings saying Marsha's in trouble. I actually laughed at our state committeeman out loud and told him that their polling was full of shit.

Marsha won by 11%.

The polls are just one more tool used by agitprop to try to demoralize you.

108 The Left is hitting DefCon 5 on Trump's comments because he has dared to say what no one ever has before, not in our time. These comments, this line of thinking, are an existential threat to the Left.

Posted by: Dan Smoot's Apprentice at July 16, 2019 08:05 AM (H8QX8)

109 So I am reading some of the articles that JJS has provided for us, then drift down to read the comments because the best observations are usually found there.

We have the occasional troll here, but these other sites are littered with them, so that the "regulars" there pretty much see the same annoying crap repeated

[parrot voice] "racist"! "Drumpf's a failure", "racist!" Squawk ! [hi-lo whistle]

I appreciate their ability to just ignore these noises and not respond - probably due to experience knowing that the retard behind the keyboard is unreachable, uneducatable and is only there because he can't get past level two of a video game.

So the word "racist" has pretty much lost all meaning, it doesn't even invoke the normal emotions or even slightly alter the conversation - it even has less social stigma than accidentally belching.

This is good - I think.

But since these are purely emotional creatures who are throwing tantrums for whatever twisted reason they do so are not finding any reaction at all, will they amp it up, and to what end?

I know that cursing, rude words and death threats are about the maximum that can be had on the internet, and we grew tired of that a decade ago, but will these jokers find the only satisfaction in following the path of James Hodgkinson and Bill Ayers?

Or will they just go away?

120 Biden still has at a minimum a +10 lead in key states. It grows from their. I don't think there is any question he will be their candidate. He's also smartly staying below the wire and he's been untouched by this.

If Trump is playing "11th dimensional chess" he may want to focus some energy on defining Biden. In the head to head polling Biden still beats Trump by at least +9.

I'm not a big believer in polls. They are one indicative. But when things start to align circumstantially it's time to get your ass in the game and stop playing with these four retards.

Agree. He's prone to mistakes. But it would be foolish to sit around waiting for one. They need to start defining him to the public. He's stayed out of the fray and they have not connected him to this crap at all. His advisers are clearly telling him to put some distance between him and this crap.

As I said yesterday, I was at a community meeting last week where one of our professional 'Woke Whities' told all of us that we need to do more to show that we are an inclusive community, and that minorities can feel safer.

I asked her in front of everyone if there was any actual proof that we were NOT inclusive, and if there was ANY evidence to suggest that minorities did not feel safe here. Or was this a passive aggressive way to suggest that the community was full of white supremacists.
At first, you could hear a pin drop.

I don't get this right here. Biden is a moderate so he will win because these people will vote for Mao!

Wait, whut?

There are fractures within the Dem party. There are things that are indeed "over the line" for them. Bernie has been on the decline since his support for voting rights for the Boston Marathon Bomber while in prison.

If Bernie got the nomination, yes, there are many Dems who will vote for him just because he's a Dem (at least while running for President) and because he is against Trump, but there are actually Dems who wouldn't.

Biden wasn't a candidate when the prison voting thing came up so he dodged that. But he is such a pandering dope that there is nothing so outlandish that he won't embrace it - and that will tarnish his so called moderate reputation.

He's stayed out of the fray and they have not connected him to this crap at all. His advisers are clearly telling him to put some distance between him and this crap. Republicans need to get off their asses and close that gap. Make him commit to some hard and fast positions. He's getting a pass and that works to our disadvantage.

The ELCA (Lutheran Church in America) sponsored boat loads of refugees. Since that particular denomination is strong in the upper Midwest, I guess Minnesota was their natural choice. On a side note, there have been rumblings through the years of making the ELCA remove the "Lutheran" in their name, as they do not teach or preach traditional Lutheranism. Think "Social Activist Plus Communion."

Still votes D every election, because that's what his daddy and grand-daddy, and great-grand-daddy did.

Today's so called radical left is nothing compared to what was going on in 1972. Back then we had Soviet supported, building bombing, rioting, bank robbing, stone killers.

Plus, every media outlet, broadcast and print, with the exception of one or two very small monthly magazines, hated Nixon. I mean hated. Buckley didn't even like him.

Forget deep state, we had bottomless well state. Every government employee hated Nixon. Most military officers hated Nixon. Hell, the people who voted for him hated him.

Nixon surrounded himself with some genuine creeps such as Haldeman, Erlichman, Colson, and Liddy - who can forget that wacko.

Plus, George McGovern was the best advocate the radical left ever had, before or since. Articulate, intelligent, honest, and a genuine war hero.

Colson wasn't a true creep. I believe he pleaded guilty to something he didn't have to plead guilty to. I forget the details. He went on to form Prison Fellowship and was an outspoken voice against post-modernism and for religious liberty. The Colson Center now employs Eric Metaxis as one of its heads and spokespersons.

Michael Isikoff claimed in an article that Texas businessman Ed Butowsky was "a Russian source" for Rooskie collusion information. Butowsky says that's a lie and he's suing for defamation.

Butowsky says Ellen Ratner of Fox News told Isikoff the lie. He claimed in a court filing that he and Ratner have quite a history relating to Julian Assange and Seth Rich.

He claims that Ratner met with Assange in London and that Assange told Ratner that all of the leaked DNC emails came from Seth Rich and his brother Aaron.

He says he has proof to substantiate his claims.

If he does have proof, this could be YUGE. It could completely invalidate the whole Rooskie collusion narrative.

Go back and look. The media focused on "Will Biden jump in" for about a month. Biden played up the "I'm thinking it over" angle. This is fact. You can see the archived news stories on it.

Ultimately, as we know, Biden declined. As we also know, per multiple sources, Obama offered his entire campaign apparatus to Biden - in return for being able to pick the VP. That was the deal-breaker.

Yeah - the DNC and media were more than ready to dump Hillary. And why not ? They'd already kicked her stupid ass to the curb once - for the Mocha Messiah.

And the more conservative Democratic voters will see a comforting image of a safe older white male to counter the rape of our country that Trump is committing.

In 2008, Biden got 1% in the Iowa caucuses before dropping out. He has never polled above a few points in any previous national race.

Biden is currently getting almost all of the moderate, centrist Democrat vote. He's not getting it because he's a superstar, he's getting because the rest of the crew is running left of Che Guevara.

Biden has been in DC forever. He has a record a mile long and if he gets to the general Trump will club him with that record like a baby seal. And I don't see the pro-antifa crowd flocking to Biden to save him. Hell, even Obama won't endorse him.

285 Globalism needs the identity politics, to break the real identity of America ... which is the Lamp of Lady Liberty, lighting the way for the world. Liberty is the opposite of "white guilt surrender". Trump has this framed nicely now, with the flabby minded four trying to turn US into a third world shit hole of racist hate.


Oligarchs like Soros/Kochs used white guilt against the working class, not against their own (white male) ownership class. They want their cheap imported labor, and/or commie slave labor out of Red China. They engineered Obama's "fundamental transformation", with near complete American surrender to the Goldmans/Morgans, toward global governance (by them the un-elected).

Their vision is real world communism, a DeepState government that owns/rules from behind the shadowy curtain (CFR/IMF/EU/etc.). Citizens get the bread and circus of a kabuki congress, rogue judge dictators, oligarch funded anarchy in your streets, and social media censorship by leftist CEOs like the Zuck.


The old "Love it or Leave it" was a little more "my country right or wrong", from what I recall, but perhaps a gut response to the domestic commie march. MAGA is more about a recovery mission for the founder's individual liberty and justice for all, which the commies corrupted into social (racist/bigoted) justice/vengeance for their scripted/imperialist fake-victim classes. American Renewal is a principled patriotism based in sovereign liberty under God, a constitutional Republic unique in the world.

This is why I am so impressed with President Trump.

Instead of saying 'Get out', he is actually encouraging these folk to resolve the issues which make their homelands struggle, and their peoples to desert their country.

And then to come back here and share the wisdom which allowed them to do this.


Very progressive, and open-minded position, if you think about it.

oldest daughter had to coordinate an event involving him when he was
VP. She told me that from top to bottom his staff was completely
professional with none of this "do you know who I am" crap. That flows
from the top and is the reputation he has among a great many people. We
all know he is a total sh*t to political enemies, but do not discount
the appeal he has to a lot of working people.

And in spite of being exonerated by Dirty Cop Muller and his angry band of Democrat Primary Donor inquisitors, such slander continues to this day.
But PDJT suggesting that people who hate this nation so much they're willing to spread such hatred among the people, to lie about the state of the border, to openly advocate the replacement of the existing electorate with one more open to the communism they so desperately - and now openly - want, should instead seek greener (or redder) pastures elsewhere is somehow "beyond the pale"

Warren looks good on paper - and then you hear her talk and it's the worst long winded, boring, and obnoxious school marm you've ever had to listen to, full of obvious false emotion to try and pretend she has a soul, even though everyone watching knows it's a poor imitation of life. It's not just that she her Indian claim was a fraud; every wave of her gnarled hands, every word out of her mouth, screams FRAUD! and people sense it, they can't help it. And she can never get past it.

You want to know a big reason that Marianne Williamson is gaining popularity? She may be a loon, but she at least believes every goofy thing she says without question. She's a completely authentic airhead, and proud of it.

and I think everyone senses that Kamela has never been anything more than an intelligent and ruthless whore who's always scheming to get to the next level. Dangerous, yes - she's the most likely of them all to set up concentration camps for her political enemies.

432 Devices supposed to stop blackouts helped cause the big one Saturday in Manhattan, Con Ed says

A system meant to prevent electric outages helped cause the big one that hit Manhattan over the weekend, Con Edison said.

It began when a 13,000-volt distribution cable failed at W. 64th St. and West End Ave. about 6:47 p.m. Saturday, the company said in a statement on Monday.

But the cable failure was just the beginning of the problem.

A series of relay switches about a block away, at the company's W. 65th St. substation, should have automatically diverted power around the failed cable, the company says.

Those relays failed.

437 Communists have been trying to use race as their entry card into the U.S. for 100 years. Richard Wright, a communist at the time, wrote extensively (in the 1930s and 40s) about their goal to use race and white guilt to grow and fortify communism in the United States and how it would work. In his most famous book, Native Son he wrote about the criminal "Bigger Thomas," who despite being a rapist, a murderer, and an abuser, is excused by the communists and defended because he's such a clear example of what the US "society" creates by being racist.

What's going on now is EXACTLY this same scheme, or maybe they really believe it, I don't know.

It's sorta amazing to watch this stuff and see the Frankfurt school, WEB Dubois, Richard Wright (Obama hero) and global communism advancing the same exact plot they've been using for a century and no one seems to recognize it--except maybe Lindsey Graham, for the love of God.

440 Note that the sex ed is framed as teaching "health." The left has also stated that drug addiction and homelessness is a "health" problem. So, no laws, no penalties, no judgment and especially no religious morality is permissible or even needed. If people are instructed on "health" all bad behavior will go away.
This was the philosophy of the '60s, and now it's codified in our Ed Code. Tragic.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?

Number two, does Google's senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?

Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military... because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn't go out the front door, it gets stolen out the backdoor anyway?" Peter Thiel


Quote II

We all know [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border, Border Patrol agents concentration camp guards. They accuse people support Israel doing it for the Benjamins. They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America. Don’t get down, aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

It isn't every day you encounter a buffalo. But just in case you do, here are some tips.

Our driver slammed on the brakes. We braced ourselves for impact. We were on a collision course, all of us certain the massive creature barreling toward us in the dark would slam into the side of our truck at any second. The vehicle couldn’t stop fast enough. We were in trouble. The cab filled with our panicked cries, and I clutched the dashboard, bracing for impact. Our rim-to-rim Grand Canyon backpacking trip was about to end before it began, shattered by a bison on a lonely road along the North Rim.

Then, just as the truck jolted to a stop, the animal swerved, missing us by mere inches.

#HeyLookAtMe, Robert Francis O'Rourke's family owned slaves.

Democrat presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke says he was recently given documents showing that both he and his wife are descended from people who owned slaves.

In a post Sunday night for the website Medium, the former Texas congressman writes that the documents showed that one of his paternal great-great-great grandfathers owned two women in the 1850s.

Dick’s May Have To Close Stores Due To Anti-Gun Decisions

I’ve written more about Dick’s Sporting Goods in 2018 than I ever thought I would. When the year started, we thought the company would have gotten the message that taking anti-gun stances wasn’t conducive to profits, but it didn’t.

So Dick’s doubled down after Parkland and purged the rest of the AR-15s from its stores and then instituted a discriminatory policy against legal adults.

The other side has pushed, poked and prodded. Law abiding citizens with an ounce of common sense are sick and f*cking tired of your type, Dick's.

"Grabbers." It's an Irish film about squid-monsters from space who arrive on an Irish island well off the mainland. The monsters like to drink blood. But if they drink the blood of a drunk person, they die.

The protagonists' solution is, basically, hold a giant house party in the local pub, everyone's invited.

It's scary, funny and quite charming, really, as there's a love story buried in the mix.

103 re Andrew: I wonder if that series The Young Pope is relevant here.

Someone in royalty (and the Papacy is para-royalty) is going to be surrounded by pander bears. Everyone wants to use you; because by proximity to you, they become Important too.

The Young Pope is about a misanthrope cynic who, because he distrusts pretty much the whole universe, survives the Curia (at least in the first few episodes).

Andrew seems to be a weaker sort. He believed the flattery. He believed he was elevated above the average man.

Maybe Britain needs a Borgia royal.

So, it's kind of like Andy Warhol's Dracula where the Count goes to Italy looking for a virgin and almost dies from sucking the blood of the loose ladies.

She once played a Vegas hotel & decided to hurl boozy insults at RR, & his supporters in the audience. Her feet never touched the floor as she was escorted off the premises. Her bags were packed for her & waiting at the curb.

I saw her 30 years ago at the Riverfront Concert series at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville (SIUE). Guess what? She was drunk onstage then too.

156 The bison on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon came from the bison preserve at South Canyon on the east side.

I lived there for 6 summers in the 1970's, fixing fence, repairing water lines, painting the skinning barn...

...it was glorious. Two guys, living in a 1930's bunkhouse, 90 miles from town, at the age of 18 the first summer. It was though the 20th century didn't exist. No phone, no electricity, no TV, no neighbors, and 40 miles to the mailbox at the Marble Canyon bridge over the Grand Canyon.

Every day, the sun rose over the canyon, and set over the Kaibab Pkateau.

An elegiac idyll I miss every day.

189 127 Ms. Ronstadt is a leftist & a drunk.

She once played a Vegas hotel & decided to hurl boozy insults at RR, & his supporters in the audience. Her feet never touched the floor as she was escorted off the premises. Her bags were packed for her & waiting at the curb.

I saw her 30 years ago at the Riverfront Concert series at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville (SIUE). Guess what? She was drunk onstage then too.

Somebody should do a reboot of Green Acres. Two hipsters from NYC, a married gay couple, move to some land near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to raise organic marijuana on their 5-acre parcel.

Meanwhile, redneck Saskatchewan farmers nearby are growing Monsanto Roundup-Ready weed by the metric fuckton on their nearby six-section holding.

I hate it. No matter what kind of music an artist is performing, being drunk &/or drugged up onstage demonstrates CONTEMPT FOR YOUR AUDIENCE, imo.

Some notorious party-hearty musicians were nonetheless EXTREMELY professional about always being clean & sober when they took the stage: Patsy Cline; Freddie Mercury; Gene Simmons; & Alice Cooper, among others, come to mind.

If you are ever in the area, drive past Lehman's in Kidron and head to Mt. Hope and the Amish store there.

The Kidron store, while great fun to visit, is essentially for the "English" tourists with corresponding prices. The Mt. Hope hardware store has the same goods but charges MUCH more reasonable prices. We (Amish/Mennonite) have a word for taking advantage of the English - Yutzied - as in "Wow, you really yutzied that guy."

354 Hadrian -- I clicked on the link in your Saturday pet thread posting to view the photos of Dutch. Then I wandered all around your site. To be honest with you, Borzois are not my cup of tea. German Shepherds and Shetland Sheepdogs are my favorites. But I was very impressed by yours and Her Majesty's devotion to the breed and the fantastic results of a very carefully planned breeding program.

I had never heard of showing a "brace" of dogs, but Dutch and Ilya were a beautiful and superbly matched brace. The photos of them moving in perfect synchronization were just amazing.

I do have one question for you. My theory is the longer and pointier the dog's nose, the smarter the dog. Does that hold true with your Borzois? Viewing your art collection, I saw that Borzois were originally bred for hunting. In my experience, hunting dogs can be either complete scatter brains or smarter than the dickens. Either way, best of luck at the show this week. I hope Delilah scoops up a major win.

358 An elegiac idyll I miss every day.

Sometimes spark plug wires will cause a miss if they run parallel to each other. A worn out distributor can cause this too.

I remember naively thinking years ago (an increasing phenomenon) that it will be interesting to see how Google opens up China to free speech and other basic human freedoms. What I hadn't considered, was that instead a Communist style digital Panopticon would be erected here instead. It makes sense in retrospect. At that time they seemed to be run by old school "hackers" in the classical sense, the type of people who believe basic information should be free or nearly so, more Libertarian than anything.

But, try https://goodsstores.com/ also. They may have what you are looking for. Normally pretty reasonable.

But sometimes, Lehman's is the only choice. I'm close enough to drive so I can hit the smaller places.

365 If you are ever in the area, drive past Lehman's in Kidron and head to Mt. Hope and the Amish store there.

The Kidron store, while great fun to visit, is essentially for the "English" tourists with corresponding prices. The Mt. Hope hardware store has the same goods but charges MUCH more reasonable prices. We (Amish/Mennonite) have a word for taking advantage of the English - Yutzied - as in "Wow, you really yutzied that guy."

Poor, Poor Pitiful Me"

I'd lay my head on the railroad tracks
And wait for the Double "E"
But the railroad don't run no more
Poor, poor pitiful me

Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor pitiful me
These young girls won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe is me

Well, I met a girl in West Hollywood
I ain't naming names
She really worked me over good
She was just like Jesse James
She really worked me over good
She was a credit to her gender
She put me through some changes, Lord
Sort of like a Waring blender

Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor pitiful me
These young girls won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe is me

Well, I met a girl at the Rainbow bar
She asked me if I'd beat her
She took me back to the Hyatt House
I don't want to talk about it

Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor pitiful me
These young girls won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe is me

(Well, I met a girl from the Vieux Carre`
Down in Yokahama
She picked me up and she throwed me down
I said, "Please don't hurt me, Mama")

387 Ohio Blue Tip matches are, alas, just a distant memory in the minds of old dodderers.

"Diamond" brand still purports to offer what's called a strike anywhere match, but they don't work worth a shit. They've changed the business end of the formulation or recipe of stuff to something less than functional, and further reduced that amount to just a bare smidgen. In use about half tend to break, or not light. They don't even light particularly well against the friggin' box.

It was a blast! All sorts of breeds racing in a team of four. It's a staggered race where a dog races down the track and retrieves a tennis ball and races back. As soon as a dog gets the ball the next dog is released and the dogs pass each other.

There were two tracks side by side so you would have a greyhound racing against a Chihuahua. Oh and there were hurdles that had to be cleared.

424 Roland was a warrior
From the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire
Fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark
On a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra
To join the bloody fray

Through sixty-six and seven
They fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers
Knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled
The Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living
And to help out the Congolese

Roland the Thompson gunner
Roland the Thompson gunner

His comrades fought beside him
Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners
Roland was the best
So the CIA decided
They wanted Roland dead
That son-of-a-bitch Van Owen
Blew off Roland's head

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
(Time, time, time for another peaceful war)
Norway's bravest son
(But time stands still for Roland 'til he evens up the score)
They can still see his headless body
Stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

Roland searched the continent
For the man who'd done him in
He found him in Mombasa
In a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun
He didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body
From there to Johannesburg

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Roland the headless Thompson gunner
(Talkin' about the man)
Roland the headless Thompson gunner

The eternal Thompson gunner
Still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later
But he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon
In Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst
Of Roland's Thompson gun and bought it

429 She once played a Vegas hotel & decided to hurl boozy insults at RR, & his supporters in the audience. Her feet never touched the floor as she was escorted off the premises. Her bags were packed for her & waiting at the curb.

I saw her 30 years ago at the Riverfront Concert series at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville (SIUE). Guess what? She was drunk onstage then too.

Half the audience walked out of Linda Ronstadt's set with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at the Aladdin Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday after the singer dedicated an encore of "Desperado" to filmmaker Michael Moore and urged the crowd to see his new film Fahrenheit 9/11.

"People walked out in the middle of the song," says Tyri Squyres, director of public relations for the Aladdin, who estimates there were 4,500 people in attendance. "Someone threw a cocktail at a poster and people were writing on her posters. We asked her to leave at that point. People paid money to see a show, not a political forum"

...

"The Aladdin Resort and Casino does not condone the comments made by Linda Ronstadt at her performance at the hotel Saturday, July 17th," reads a statement released by the hotel. "Ms. Ronstadt was hired to entertain the guests of the Aladdin, not to espouse her political views. Following her performance she was escorted out of the hotel and immediately checked out of her room. And she will not be welcomed back."

How would anyone know? Barky and his lackies kept a tighter seal on the alleged Bin Laden corpse than almost anything outside of Barky's personal papers, SAT scores, Birth certificate and the like.

But I'm sure Omar was giddy over news that Bin Laden was given the honor of muzzie funeral rites. That Barky ... he's always looking out for America's enemies ...

Bin Laden deserved to be hanged and have his head pop off like the other hussein. And then just be left there for the animals to eat or to be the first piece of a landfill.

446 130 115 Allow me to introduce a term with which I had not previously been acquainted. However, we live and learn.

I was wondering, as I sat on the toilet, why my nose often ran whilst I was, er, doing the toilet a solid.

"Defecation rhinorrea" is a thing, I learned. Nose running because of taking a crap.

There is no cure. I shall soldier on.
Posted by: Halfwise

Does it (your nose) do the same thing during cardio exercise?

If so, the underlying issue is simply a case of fungal poisoning in the gut, usually caused by antibiotic, corticosteroid, or PPI usage.
That fungal overgrowth leaks toxins into your bloodstream 24/7, which your sinuses filter out as clear mucus.
During times of stress or increased blood circulation, the sinuses work faster and your nose runs.

All you have to do to fix it is clean your gut out like you're going for a colonoscopy and then take two 5 gram doses of food-grade activated charcoal one hour apart, with 12 oz water each.

The charcoal picks up all the fungus and toxins and carries the whole mess out of you. This not only clears up the sinuses, it clears up brain fog, depression/anxiety, short-term memory loss, chronic headaches, most digestive problems, carb cravings, fatigue, and you drop the water weight around your waist and hips that nothing could shake.

That still pisses me off. We had to endure years of the expert Muslim theologians in the Bush and Obama administrations explaining that Bin Laden wasn't a real Muslim, and we give him a Muslim funeral anyway.

The Russians have been known to sew up the corpses of Islamic terrorists in pigskin before burial - videotaping it so it can be shown to other Ilamic terrorists.

As another example, I don't know if we still do this, but we used to have out guards at Guantanamo wear gloves when handling Korans, since the inmates considered the guards to be unclean.

As Mark Steyn noted, it's one thing for the jihadis to consider non-Muslims to be unclean - it's quite another thing when the non-Muslims agree with them.

That was another genius move by the Bush Administration - the alternative location considered for imprisoning Islamic terrorists was Wake Island, in the middle of the Pacific, 2300 miles west of Hawaii.

483 PJ Media had a story the other day, claiming the Seth Rich story was conspiracy theory started by Russians, and conservatives fell for it and were duped.

He had a lot of facts wrong, or absent, imo. And now I see this ... a (not conservative) Fox news analyst (Ellen Ratner) had met with Assange, and says he told her Seth Rich was the source. Her brother had been an Assange attorney, which seems to be how she attained access.


The story is at Gateway Pundit, and this link is part of it. PJ Media seems to be the ones duped ... but apparently take joy in trashing "conspiracy theories" using their own misconceptions as proof.


Not that there is absolute proof Seth was murdered by Hilda's goons, but Deep State and Mueller misrepresented where the Hillary emails came from, painting the Russia/Trump lie to cover for Hillary's selling our uranium to our enemy. PJ Media joined with Mueller in spreading the fable, as far as I can tell.


why do they hate patriots? btw, not mentioned in the story, but Assange's lawyer, Ratner's brother, also died ... doesn't say how ... maybe natural, except anyone involved in Clinton muck that ends up dead ... always reason to wonder.

495 I grew up just outside of Philly on the east side of the Delaware. I never visited Lancaster County, but Pennsylvania Dutch cultural items showed up periodically. One of my favorites was scrapple. (No, like sausage and politics, you don't ask what's in it.) It came in very dense, heavy loaves and you cut slices off and fried them. Every once in a blue moon, Shoofly pie would make a sudden appearance. Great stuff!

I picked up an early appreciation for the art of hex signs. I had a pair of double distilfink earrings before kids. I also have an extensive collection of cross stitch charts for stitching the various hex signs. Himself is half Irish, which makes him more Irish than the Irish. Many years ago, I gave him a large Irish hex rondel which is fastened to the front porch facing the street.

The Amanna Colonies in eastern Iowa is a Mennonite tourist area. There are several small hotels with restaurants that serve family style. There are also some gift shops with some unique items. And they craft a number of herb infused wines. But it's the meat store and delicatessen that will break the bank. All the sandwich meats are made there as is just about everything else.

Doesn't matter which one was "best". You can't prove it, anyway.

They all were. They all, still are.

And if Rondstat's "Long, Long Time" doesn't react to the dust in the room, then go check your soul in with the 'smithy, 'cause it needs to be pounded back into shape and re-polished.

Kelly Clarkson. (not a favorite of mine, but that's due to song choice and genre, but not due to lack of a beautiful voice and talent)

Adele. Yeah, packaging, etc. But she's this generation's Lulu, out of Britain. (Well, close. Lulu was the better singer, Adele combines with writing. Which for some, weights the scale)


All in all though?

We don't have a generation of talent to compete with the 60's/70's giants.

We could, but we don't.

The fault lies not with the Cosmos, but with the Stars.

While I would tend to agree, sadly, the limited scope and reach of her (most excellent) works, dropped her below the scan of my radar in that sweep.

Which is a pity. She's superb, and would succeed in any era, BUT FOR a too narrow focus on her art, and not enough grabbing of the oh-so-vital charts.

There is an aspect of a performer's reach, that depends on the aspect of their being "Compelling".

That can be a heretofore unheard voice. Or harmonies. Arrangements.

No one singer from the Beach Boys could chart so much as a gig at the Wurlitzer at the Olde Folks Buffet.

Combined, with the writing, production and harmonies.?

COMPELLING would be a most egregious understatement, wouldn't you think?

I have heard them both live, and they are.

Sadly, their immersion in the "pop" scene, limits their ability to really let loose, and let the artistry fly IN THE STUDIO.

Cut 'em loose on stage, where they can show what they're really capable of, and your mind will be blown. I promise this is so.

The sin is that their "producers", package them in such empty, anodyne, over-engineered crappy compositions and tunes.

They really have the talent. They just need to find a way break free of The Machine, and let fly.

Find me some of her hits that aren't seven times over-layered in self-harmony over production, and you've got my attention.

An early girlfriend was a classic "JAP" in Southern California parlance. "Jewish American Princess".

Niece of a hugely famous Hollywood director, who I cannot mention because the last names are the same.

Ms. Carpenter and her band were hired to play this young lady's Bat Mitzvah.

Karen Carpenter really DID had all of the awesome voice she was credited for.

But in one of Bacharach's few screw ups, he let Richard Carpenter steer the effort more than was his due, and hence the endless over-dubbings.

And that to me, renders The Carpenters more UN listenable, than otherwise.

Her Greatest Hits were crossover enough from Soul and R&B to merit inclusion, but the bulk of her work didn't find it's way into the POPULAR lexicon in the '60s and '70s.

She's best known for "Respect".

Her R&B charts were astronomical.

But I can't pull up a recall of a romantic ballad of hers that I'd queue up to play on a date?
