Laura Ingraham: Newly Released Email Shows Obama's White House Meeting With Ukranian Prosecutors to Discuss... Hunter Biden and Burisma

And the fake "whistleblower," Eric Ciaramella, checked the Ukranian officials into the White House?

Politico reporter Ken Vogel contacted the White House for comment on a story he was working on. It's this email that has just been revealed.


On May 1, 2019, Vogel contacted State Department official Kate Schilling about a story he was working on regarding an Obama administration meeting in January 2016 with Ukrainian prosecutors and mentioned the name of the CIA analyst believed to be the whistleblower whose complaint sparked impeachment proceedings that led to two articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Ingraham did not state the name of the alleged whistleblower — Fox News hosts are banned from doing so until the identity is confirmed — and blacked out the name when showing excerpts of documents. However, she likely was referring to Eric Ciaramella, who some Republicans and conservative media figures believe is the whistleblower.

In the email, Vogel wrote, "We are going to report that [State Department official] Elizabeth Zentos attended a meeting at the White House on 1/19/2016 with Ukrainian prosecutors and embassy officials as well as ... [redacted] from the NSC ... the subjects discussed included efforts within the United State government to support prosecutions, in Ukraine and the United Kingdom, of Burisma Holdings, ... and concerns that Hunter Biden's position with the company could complicate such efforts."

...

Using archived Obama White House visitor logs, Ingraham said her team was able to corroborate details of the January 2016 meeting, showing on the screen the names of Ukrainian officials checked into the White House by Ciaramella, who was Ukraine director on the National Security Council.



It's all a debunked conspiracy theory.

99 on my mind this morning, the topic of just how badly the House managers are screwing up their presentation - the Twitterati keep saying they want this to be like a "Real Trial!!!" Well, here's how a Real Trial goes:
First, the Prosecution lists the Charges made, and in it's opening statement, the Prosecutor lays out a Road Map for the Jury. He explains what the charges are, he explains what evidence he has to back up the charges, he tells the jury what witnesses and/or documentary evidence he is going to present to them to verify his claim that he has evidence. The rest of his case will be the Prosecutor showing the jury what he told them he would show them in his opening statement / road map.
After he's done, the Defense gets its turn. The Defense will dispute the Prosecutions evidence; the Defense may say "We will show you that the Defendant was in South America the day this happened!" or whatever. After both sides present, they make closing statements, and the Jury makes its decision.
BUT... if the Prosecution presents no evidence, then the Defense doesn't have to do anything. It's over right there. This happened most recently in the big Exxon Trial brought by the New York State's Attorney General. At the close of his phase of the trial, the Judge ruled that New York had presented NO evidence of any kind to support their allegations, therefore case dismissed, no need for a defense of any kind by Exxon.

So - what has Schiff been doing for the last 2 days? Does anyone see any evidence of a "Road Map" at all? Does anyone have any idea of what kind of evidence he wants to present that he knows would prove his claims? (Hint - "lets talk to this guy and MAYBE he'll say something that kinda supports my side" is NOT evidence.

If we treat this as a real Trial, the way the Left wants - this thing is dead already.

103 Sundance over at CTH has a pretty good essay on the dems set-up to not formally authorize impeachment so they wouldn't have to have a house vote on it, thus keeping their requests for witnesses and documents nothing more than that. Requests, not subpoenas. Requests need not be heeded.

That gave them the opening to declare Trump and the gop would not cooperate with their efforts.

"There are no crimes listed in the articles. The articles are inscrutable and vague. The claim of 'obstruction' is absurd and an overreach of congressional power over the executive per the president's established constitutional authority. This was a railroading in the other chamber. They provided no evidence. They provided no witnesses. They have no case. This is political hackery. They should all be ashamed, but they're bad people and so they're not."

(Putin is not stupid, after all) Venezuela has already sold Russia huge amounts of his oil reserves, he doesn't have any more to sell. It's going to be fun watching Putin decide what to do when Maduro says "Si Senor, I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a boatload of Hamburgers today!!!"

The only thing Venezula still his in large supply is Cocaine and Fentanyl, and I don't think Putin needs much of that.

Look at the date of the White House meeting with the Ukrainians, January 19, 2016. As I've been saying Ukraine was the source of much if not most of the Russia hoax and because the Obama administration was basically running Ukraine they had the team already lined up on both continents.

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

It's those pesky facts again! The third world (or "The Developing World" if you like) produces the majority of the so-called global warming emissions, and also run much less efficiently, so by far the biggest bang for the whiny little SJWs who want to save Gaia from the depredations of rampant capitalism would be found in those countries.

But those countries also have robust systems to keep foreign criticism in check, and their populations sort of like the idea of entering the 21st century, with air conditioning and clean water and abundant power for those things that make life better. They are much more willing to look at Saint Greta of the scold and say, "LOLGF."
Historian Slams Greta Thunberg: "I Don’t See Her in Beijing or Delhi"

“60% of CO2 emissions since Greta Thunberg was born is attributable to China… but nobody talks about that. They talk as if its somehow Europeans and Americans who are going to fix this problem… which is frustrating because it doesn’t get to the heart of the matter,” said Ferguson.

“If you’re serious about slowing CO2 emissions and temperatures rising it has to be China and India you constrain,” he added, noting that while Greta travels to New York and Davos, “I don’t see her in Beijing or Delhi.”

And this is coming from Niall Ferguson, who is a bit of a turd and happily accepts the premise of AGW!

So the appropriate response to any of these shrill anti-progress lunatics is to laugh, and point at China and tell them to fix that country first, before they start on the smaller carbon footprint of the USA and Western Europe.

But there is a non-zero possibility of getting tossed out on their asses, or maybe even worse. China doesn't take kindly to internal criticism, especially from entitled foreigners blogging from their luxury hotel rooms.

Does anyone else dream of a time when the Gretas of the world get knocked on their asses by people who are truly offended that she has all of the benefits of carbon energy and wants to deny it to everyone else?

41 Pulling from the previous thread because you can't stop me:

so, you're saying that the transporter can also copy the soultrons that compose a person's soul in addition to the normal matter that compose a person's body? next, you'll say that the "life form detection" stuff that goes on is a simple detection of soultrons. what color uniform do soultronic technicians wear?
Posted by: Anachronda at January 23, 2020 11:04 AM (sGtp+)

No, I'm not saying it's copying it, I'm saying that your soul would be temporarily in two places at once. Or a better way to look at it would be that your soul would occupy a discontinuous volume while the transportation happens. Maybe.

42 27 Greta and her ilk aren't about emissions or carbon levels. They're in it to destroy the US economy, and that's all. They don't care about the environment, only control.

I seem to remember hearing that one of the deals they tried to push at a "climate change summit" a few years back was that the US would be obligated to send billions of dollars to India who would in turn be obligated to use it to buy Solar Panels from China...

44 The spectacle of an odd unappealing and not very bright teenager lecturing the world only adds to the idiocy, it's not really the point.

That point being that *many*, if not most, public figures and institutions that in some way oppose the AGW nonsense accept, or fail to explicitly reject, the very dubious hypothesis.

Including some key ones. When Trump properly trashed the Paris Accord, it was because it was a "bad deal" for the US. I guess it just needed some work, like NAFTA becoming USMCA.

And just this week, Crenshaw (TX) beclowned himself on the topic, talking about a "third way" that avoided "inaction". "Inaction" on what, warrior-scientist?

Hypocrisy is the most boring and lame problem with made-up crises and the hijacking of science. It's the made-up and fake science parts that matter.

sobering call to action. Nobody speaks truth to power as she does."

She is like a pet to them She is no different than the activists groups in the US who play sue-and-settle with like-minded federal bureaucrats.
-- Step 1: Billionaires want to implement "green" policies that allow them to reduce all but them to serf-like lives (live in pod in the city, public transportation, eat bugs, etc.).

-- Step 2: Get daughter of activist actors to attend perform her climate change hysteric rage at Davos, EU, UN and "scold them" into implementing green policies.

-- Step 3: Pretend to be convinced by this stunning and brave child that we all must - it is imperative to little Greta's future!- that we implement the green policies they all wanted in step 1.

The key is to make it look like you were forced to do it.

CO2 is not pollution; it causes plants to grow.
The climate has been changing since we had a climate; long before mankind ever came on the scene.
Who is to determine what "the right temperature" is and how?

I looked this up yesterday - I think domestic, especially since his unit had killed maybe a couple hundred protesters over the last 2 or 3 months, so he had a LOT of enemies who wanted his blood.

It was a very slick hit, shows that the simplest plan is the best plan. Clearly someone was doing surveillance and knew when he'd be home. He was in front of his house, 2 guys wearing masks zoomed up on a motorcycle. Each one had a rifle and opened fire, then they instantly zoomed away and disappeared in traffic. Quick getaway, almost impossible to defend against. Sounds local to me.

had vegimite once when a co-worker that spent time as a computer programmer in New Guinea with vacation time meant flying to Australia. He moved back to the states and would order it from Australia He developed a taste for it. I believe it was Kraft Vegimite.

Vile stuff. This coming from a guy who was around homemade head cheese and blood sausage.

Now, you can order it from Amazon. An Amazon review

Vegemite is dreadful, let's just get that clear. If you took a can of beer, dumped it into a pot, added a cup of salt, and boiled it down to a thick, black sludge, you would get something very much like Vegemite. It is concentrated evil. When you spread a very thin smear of the stuff on a piece of toast and bite into it, the amount of flavor that hits your tongue is enough to short circuit your brain. You will instantly hate it. But then you will take another bite because the full horror of the taste can not be processed all in one go, and you will want to double check that it really was as bad as you had originally thought. You will then finish the piece of toast and probably make yourself another one. Such is the mystery of Vegemite. God help me, but I think I actually love the stuff now.

this problem . . which is frustrating because it doesn't get to the heart
of the matter," said Ferguson.



Probably because their idea of a "fix" is really "demand payments/reparations from"?

*That's* why they look to the US and Europe: they are easy marks for guilt payments. We're successful, but our current culture feels really badly about being superior and all, and we must have done this at the expense of someone blah blah blah.

All that calcium carbonate (gravel roads) came from the air.

Greetings, applicant. There is a wrong answer to "What is your sexual/gender identity?"

So just write it down here, so we can have a record in HR that you're a cross-dressing married man or bisexual or not sure whether you're male or female. It will live in our archives and it will never be put to misuse by anyone in our organization whom you piss off -- or by anyone else who happens to get hold of it. Of course it's your private business, but we feel we have a right to know the bedroom habits of our employees -- or even our job applicants.

This is always the goal of the aristocracy. There's no point being an aristocrat if the hoi polloi have it good, too. It isn't about good for them, it's about wildly, almost incomprehensibly better for them than it is for you. Even if they aren't actually objectively that great, it is the gap that matters.

Like all Leftism, environmentalism (and progressivism, and all of its bedfellows) is about undoing everything that has happened since the 18th century and returning the world to its proper place - a place where they run things by divine right and everyone else sleeps in a pile of crap.

She has the attention of the Education Machine that indoctrinates our youth, so yes it's comment worthy. It's a heads up to readers here about what propaganda they will be hearing from the yutes in their network. They will be prepared to counter it.
All the AGW/Climate Change shit isn't supposed to convince OK Boomers. It's there for those born 1964 and later. The DNC and their Globalist/Commie enablers and directors have all the statistics on when the Boomer cohort will no longer be a problem for them. They ALWAYS play the long game.
The propaganda is also directed to any GOP squishes who they can draw into their web.

We've managed to keep the Germans under control, and our efforts in NY and MA have been successful but the US as a whole is fractious (ha ha) and it may be difficult to achieve total control even with a Democrat President.

China and India are less susceptible to our efforts at thwarting national energy development, and their growth is such that they will remain solid markets for us and our allies for many years.

They are the descendants of the king-killers, but they are of the same mental cloth as the kings their parents killed. They want nothing more than to be your betters, and to be your betters by inscrutable right because they have access to the real meaning of things.

They act like apes. So did the aristocracy of old, when we get right down to it. They were genteel and had protocols they followed and there were rigidly-enforced standards of decorum and practices, but this was to keep them from killing each other all the time and stop intra-caste bloodshed. The rules of decorum in the European aristocracies were entirely practical and maintained order within their group.

Their system was fancy but brutal. The relative position of their caste and the masses of rightless peasants over whom they ruled was only polite and classy from one side of the transaction, and only if you don't look at what they did those outside the caste.

If these people get their way, the first few intra-aristocratic wars will result in the same outcome. The source, the root of their behavior, is destroying the world of free men and reimposing a world where only their will matters, modulated by their relative positions within the ruling caste. Progressive they aren't. They want the system of old, with themselves as rulers.

They may be the children of king-slayers, but they lament it and want to be remade as the kings their parents destroyed.

351 All the AGW/Climate Change shit isn't supposed to convince OK Boomers. It's there for those born 1964 and later. The DNC and their Globalist/Commie enablers and directors have all the statistics on when the Boomer cohort will no longer be a problem for them. They ALWAYS play the long game.
The propaganda is also directed to any GOP squishes who they can draw into their web.

There has always been a dynastic element to success. Its part of human nature.

The key is how do you define success? It used to be a hereditary title, which made you wealthy through controlling land.

Now, its stock, which controls companies.

Both had small insular groups, with large amounts of 'hangers on'. In the old days? Minor Nobles in the Court. Today? Celebrity, media, and Politicians.

386 Vegemite is dreadful, let's just get that clear. If you took a can of beer, dumped it into a pot, added a cup of salt, and boiled it down to a thick, black sludge, you would get something very much like Vegemite. It is concentrated evil. When you spread a very thin smear of the stuff on a piece of toast and bite into it, the amount of flavor that hits your tongue is enough to short circuit your brain. You will instantly hate it. But then you will take another bite because the full horror of the taste can not be processed all in one go, and you will want to double check that it really was as bad as you had originally thought. You will then finish the piece of toast and probably make yourself another one. Such is the mystery of Vegemite. God help me, but I think I actually love the stuff now.

I agree, Grammie. The weather here has been cooperating for a change, and I've been able to wear my vintage or vintage-style fedoras nearly every day to work.

The problem today is that there are no longer hat-check stations in restaurants and other places. The museum I went to this weekend had a hat-and-coat check station, but normally if I wear a hat into a restaurant, we have to sit in a booth so I can safely put my hat on the seat next to me, or on the next chair if we sit at a table.

55 The problem today is that there are no longer hat-check stations in restaurants and other places. The museum I went to this weekend had a hat-and-coat check station, but normally if I wear a hat into a restaurant, we have to sit in a booth so I can safely put my hat on the seat next to me, or on the next chair if we sit at a table.

95 There are two main types of Impressionism. The blurry type most associated with Monet. This is the other type: a glimpse at the modern life.

Caillebotte is giving us a quick "impression" of modern life in one of the most modern cities on the planet. The lines are straight, the colors are clean, the lighting is bright. There is steel and concrete everywhere. Wide paved roads, skyscrapers, a train I think (the absolute symbol of advanced technology at the time), and construction continues on the right.

But there are also hints at some negative aspects too. There is an overwhelming tone of grey. Every person is alone. The two people at the focal point aren't actually together; she's a few steps behind the man. So the illusion of companionship is false. This may be part of a larger message that the modern world seems great but an examination of the details lead to a different conclusion.

That's pretty close. I'd quibble with the idea that a fedora's brim is slightly wider in front than in the back or sides, though. Most fedoras have 2-3" brims, true, usually 2.25 to 2.75, but the brims are usually the same all around. Some exceptions exist, such as the Indiana Jones models where the sides are shaved a little, but usually the brim is an even width all around.

Historically, men's hats were often sold open crown, just a tall dome (think Indian "reservation hat"!), and the seller or the buyer himself shaped the crown to his liking. I've done that with several of my hats, and it's always fun.

106 I wonder why the lady is dressed in all black. Or is it just dark gray?

She may be in mourning. As late as the 1920s, there were very precise rules for mourning attire, particularly if the deceased was a spouse or parent. Black for six months to a full year, then dark gray for another six months. Gentlemen wore black bands on their hats or jacket sleeves. The 1929 edition of Emily Post's Etiquette spells it all out.

144 The two people at the focal point aren't actually together; she's a few steps behind the man. So the illusion of companionship is false. This may be part of a larger message that the modern world seems great but an examination of the details lead to a different conclusion.

That's the common idea. But statistically, hat-wearing had been declining since 1945. When GIs came home from the war, they doffed their helmets and caps, and were reluctantly to put anything else on their heads. They wore hats, yes, but they no longer felt underdressed if they went out without a hat.

Cars had gotten lower, too, with lower rooflines, and so climbing into your Chevy could knock your hat off. And it was hard to drive wearing a hat.

Good eyes, I had not noticed the train. And what you note was my first reaction as well - the design of the bridge might seem rather old fashioned to us today, but in 1876 this was the hot new wave of construction. 13 years later, this new skill would produce the Eiffel Tower.

Akubra the Australian company has several models (including one called the Federation IV which is very Indiana Jones-like). And there are quite a few hatmakers who will make you a custom hat -- choose your color, your crown height and brim width, your ribbon, etc. -- for $300 or less. I have one from Northwest Hat Company in Oregon which cost me about $225, is exactly what I specified, and fit right out of the box.

I placed this comment on the American Thinker site, host of that article:
"I understand the reason for your concern, but I see the outcome very optimistically. This case went to the most liberal, most friendly Appeals Court, the 9th Circuit, in the entire nation, and even THEY couldn't find in favor. All that verbiage is just them saying how much they wished they could have done so - well of course, it's the 9th Circuit. But even they had to admit that it wouldn't work - it would have required the Courts to set themselves up as Emperors, with powers of command and control over every single person in this country. Of course that's what the left wants, but they're not going to get away with it.

You mention other cases coming - but this is Precedent for all of the others coming down the pike. (there are some other precedents as well in the last couple of years - the San Francisco case, for example) Bottom line - now we know that no matter how many future cases they file, their lawfare offensive has failed."

I have two gray fedoras, but they don't fit quite properly. Once, when I was in London, I bought a deerstalker, but you simply can't wear it without someone cracking wise about Sherlock Holmes.

Usually I wear either a tweed flat cap, a Brooks Brothers cap or my old Fred Thompson for President cap. Since I work at home, I don't really need to go out anymore. And I don't have any particular reason to dress up anymore.

I think so. It's basically a fedora, except the pinches run along the sides, high up, and the brim (usually about 2.75") is worn snapped up. Almost always in the cream color.

Have you read "Rape of the Masters" by Roger Kimball? From Amazon: "In "The Rape of the Masters: How Political Correctness Sabotages Art," Kimball, a noted art critic himself, shows how academic art history is increasingly held hostage to radical cultural politics--feminism, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, the whole armory of academic antihumanism." It's very good, and kinda funny.

And all of this comes from Trilby the novel by George DuMaurier, about the Bohemian girl named Trilby who is hypnotized by the evil Svengali into becoming a great singer.

The novel later became a play and one of the characters wore a hat that was dubbed a "Trilby."

Almost immediately after Chief Justice John Roberts gaveled in Wednesday's session of President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, bored and weary senators started openly flouting some basic guidelines in a chamber that prizes decorum.

A Democrat in the back row leaned on his right arm, covered his eyes and stayed that way for nearly a half-hour. Some openly snickered when lead prosecutor Adam Schiff said he'd only speak for 10 minutes. And when one of the freshman House prosecutors stood to speak, many of the senator-jurors bolted for the cloak rooms, where their phones are stored.

360 As one of the executive producers of the last Mad Max movie, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin might have been interested in the apocalyptic climate warnings of Greta Thunberg.

Instead, he took a personal swipe at the 17-year-old, saying she was in no position to give advice on climate change because she hasn't been to college yet.

At a press briefing at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss town of Davos, Mnuchin dismissed Thunberg's suggestion that governments and companies need to cut back dramatically on their use of fossil fuels.

When asked how that would affect the U.S. economic model, Mnuchin was swift and condescending in his response.

"Is she the chief economist? Who is she? I'm confused," he said. Then following a brief pause, he said it was "a joke."

I agree. The problem is, someone is going to take an art critics word as gospel long after the artist themselves are gone and there's no corroborating evidence other than the critics opinion. The artist can't defend, deny or agree.

Look up "Sexuality of Abraham Lincoln" In his 1926 biography of Lincoln, Carl Sandburg alluded to the early relationship of Lincoln and his friend Joshua Fry Speed as having "a streak of lavender, and spots soft as May violets".

I can google with the best of them.

Most sci-fi isn't sci-fi, but techno fantasy.

Star Trek, as a whole (there are individual episodes that get close) is not science fiction. Transporters were created not because they were scientifically feasible, but because they needed a cheaper way to get the crew to the planet than building a shuttle. So they used a cheap optical effect.

Science has gone on to try and justify it, but it doesn't change the fact that in the early 60s, the idea of a transporter beam was pure fantasy with a techno twist.

Yeah. I've thought something like this for a while, not just about Schiff, the whole establishment. It's not that they're dirty; I expect that. It's not that they scratch each others' backs and hook up each others' kids and scheme against the people they supposedly represent; I expect all of that. What really gets under my skin is that they suck so badly at it-- they can't even be crooked without fucking it up.

This is who runs the machine-- these are the people on the governing body of the most powerful country on the planet, basically immune from prosecution and they still trip over their own shoelaces.

Now of course I should be thanking my lucky stars. If these people were geniuses they'd have turned this country into North Korea. I guess that sort of goes to explain why they are the way they are-- they're all walking, talking personifications of Dunning-Kruger and they think they're super smart and totes covert. They're dishonest and lazy and they think they're a lot smarter than they are, which is why they go crooked in the first place.

There ain't no reason for you to go south of I-10. If you need to go there, you call me and I'll go with you." I can just picture us walking down the street, me looking at a map and him telling everyone, "It's cool, it's cool. He's with me."

Matter transmitters had appeared in SF before -- on analogy with "sound, converted into electrical impulses and sent to a destination, where they are converted back into sound" (the telephone). Georges Langelaan's The Fly used the idea, albeit for a horror effect.

It's possible to say that a lot of the tropes used in SF are fantasy, as far as we know now. Faster-than-light travel, for instance.

It's the one where they discover a Duplicate Riker living on a planet, one that was created by a transporter malfunction years earlier.

Well, if you can create duplicates with the transporter, then on any hazardous mission why don't you just send down duplicates, and if they they get killed, send down more duplicates? Why wouldn't the entire crew on a starship just be duplicates of originals who could safely stay at home?

Well they resolved the issue by never talking about it again.

Depending on how they chose to portray the transporter, it might not. The way it looks, the transporter doesn't completely destroy the first part before starting to assemble the copy, and it doesn't just do it top to bottom or button to top either. You see the entire body sort of "phase" in or out at once. It might be the case that there's continuity of consciousness that for a time is divided in two discrete locations, in which case it doesn't seem like it'd be killing you and making a copy.

That being said, I don't think I'd be interested in taking that risk, since it would be impossible to know if there's actually a continuity of consciousness or just the illusion, because the person on the other end has the same menories of the transport event as you would have.

I read a book on the physics of star trek, it would probably be a million years before ever seeing something like that. The memory required to store the pattern of a human body, which is every atom in the human body, the X, Y, and Z positions, and the state of the electrons of each atom IF stored on floppy disks would make a stack 10,000 light years tall. You would also have to heat a human body to a million times the temperature of the core of the sun, and expend more energy in a single machine than all of humanity presently uses.

Which reminds me of the end of Wolf in the Fold - after Mr Hengist has been sedated, Kirk throws him into the transporter and sets it on wide dispersal to bring an end to "Redjack."

HOWEVER - as we saw through the episode, "Redjack" possesses people in order to kill, and did it with Scotty, the Enterprise computer and Hengist. So in trying to destroy the entity, Kirk was really murdering poor Mr Hengist, who had been possessed and wasn't really himself responsible for the murders on Argelius.

HOWEVER - as we saw through the episode, "Redjack" possesses people in order to kill, and did it with Scotty, the Enterprise
computer and Hengist. So in trying to destroy the entity, Kirk was
really murdering poor Mr Hengist, who had been possessed and wasn't
really himself responsible for the murders on Argelius.

474 Between TOS and TNG, Starfleet included programming in the transporters that made the new versions more docile and compliant to Starfleet rules, which is why everyone's so boring in the 24th century.

My standard theory of Star Trek: It all goes back to ST6. Once word got out that Starfleet had conspired with the Klingons and Romulans to keep hostilities going, there was a public backlash. It would be as if the US military was conspiring with the Soviet Union to keep the Cold War going for their own benefit. The result was the election of a Bernie Sanders/Ralph Nader type administration in the Federation, who promptly spent the next 70 years trying to demilitarize Starfleet and purging all the old guard officers. Hence why in ST Generations, Kirk is shocked that the Enterprise B left Spacedock without torpedoes or shields: for officers of his generation it wouldn't have been considered that you would go out unarmed and unprepared. However, the new captain is younger, probably a political appointee, and the whole thing is supposed to be nothing more than a PR stunt. By the time of TNG, the Federation has expanded so much that SF can barely control its territory, and there are plenty of colonies which fall into chaos and violence, and are subsequently cut off rather than trying to fix them. Meanwhile, the Federation cannot even win a border war with the Cardassians, instead settling for a low-level conflict that drags on.

Not really. IIRC the Federation has a ban on cloning, and there are
morality issues with the idea of either a) sending down sentient
duplicates on suicide missions, or b) constantly creating copies of the
same person who won't have access to that person's life once the mission
is over.


a) the ban on cloning was clearly promulgated by the unions. if you were allowed to clone people at will, there would only be one laborer; he would be instantiated as necessary to handle the task at hand, then disposed of when the task was complete (think mr. meesix from rick and morty or "can o'man" from the tick).

b) mission success could be ensured by waiting to dispose of the original until the mission was complete. until success, copies can be sent as required. after success, the original is disposed of so that the successful copy retains the memories needed for the after-action report.

I don't care what anyone says, this is canon in my head now. This would explain so much of TNG.

The Feds can't even win a war against the wildly technologically inferior Cardassians who could not even maintain dominance over a backwater world like Bajor? How?!

It makes very few assumptions, and the conclusions are plausible. The public reaction to the conspiracy in ST6 would have been enormous, and even if the sitting President won a sympathy vote for his near-assassination, the pacifists would probably sweep the next election with enough force to set the agenda no matter who was in the big chair.

The demilitarization of Starfleet might even have survived contact with the Borg, who'd be seen as a one-off aberration, after which to return to business as usual, but the Dominion War following so quickly after would swing the pendulum the other way.

The Morning Report - 1/23/20

cipollo.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and sham-peachment is underway where, if you were watching was what Michael Goodwin of the NY Post labeled a massive "TV rerun." About the only thing that was new or different from the first go-round in the House was the depths of depravity to which both Adam Schiff-for-Brains and Jerry Nadless sank, especially the former, in regurgitating and rehashing the same lies, tropes, falsehoods, distortions and deranged fantasies that they hope will convince 67 Senators, and more importantly, a majority of Americans to dump Trump; either at the end of this embarrassing fiasco or this coming November. Spoiler alert: it ain't happening. But still, they persist. Whether it's because he knows he's up to his ping-pong-ball eyes in witness tampering/collusion with Eric "Whistleblower" Ciaramella to manufacture his testimony - NB: new revelations show Ciaramella discussed with a co-conspirator removing Trump just two weeks into his presidency - or just frustration that nothing he or his allies and henchman have done since July of 2015 when Trump came down the escalator, Schiff-for-Brains has gone off the deep end.

The long and the short of it is, despite the blathering, bloviation, "witnesses," and assorted eight-by-ten color glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one meant, there is zero real evidence of any high crime or misdemeanor because President Trump did not commit any. Despite the clever by 1/1024th phraseology, Schiff-for-Brains himself states plainly that all of this is about preventing Trump from winning the next election. Ostensibly, and most outrageously is because the pencil-necked psycho claims that Trump is now going to steal the upcoming election just like he purportedly did the last one. I can't even...

I don't know how this "trial" is supposed to be run, vis a vis procedural rules, but if I were one of the GOP trial managers, I would be shouting "objection" probably every five seconds since every word that bug-eyed traitorous criminal is spouting was a lie, including pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions. But, I guess it doesn't work that way. Really, what's the point in my going on, ranting and raving? In the last analysis, whatever happens during the course of all of this is in no way, shape or form going to move the needle insofar as convicting and removing the President. It will move the needle in the court of public opinion, and further into support for Trump and revulsion at the Democrat-Media Complex.

The upsides are that Cocaine Mitch got the upper hand in getting his rules passed and preventing a rerun of the Kavanaugh kangaroo kourt fiasco, despite having to endure the endless Stalin/Castro-esque blathering of the House's little Freislers, and that after yesterday's disaster for the Dems, more and more Americans will be tuning out. Let's unpack some of the links.

I don't think they'll do it again.

There are those in the House who will demand it, but I don't think the Democratic caucus as a whole will be willing to do impeachment again.

Then again, the Democratic leadership did force every one of their reps (minus the one rebel) to vote for the first one. So it really depends on what leadership wants.

87 Bloomberg is, in my opinion the most dangerous one of the bunch. He won't get the nomination, but has promised big bucks. With a lot of money, a candidate can carpet bomb areas with ads, even the big fat lie kind over and over, not giving the opposition time for rebuttal. Like Joey the Gimp used to tell Adolph, "keep telling the lie and sooner than later the people believe it".

The Democrat House would not give us lawyers, or not one witness, but now demand that the Republican Senate produce the witnesses that the House never sought, or even asked for? They had their chance, but pretended to rush. Most unfair & corrupt hearing in Congressional history!

No matter what you give to the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, it will never be enough!

100 I think Bloomberg's entire candidacy is just an elaborate sideswipe of campaign donation limits. He has no hope of winning, and yet he has promised his 500 plus staff jobs all the way through the election.


That means they will be working full time against PDJT, no matter who the Democrat nominee is. Bloomberg's own role as nominal "candidate" will be as minimal as required to satisfy the rules, I'm betting, while he spends close to a billion dollars to support the Democrat and against Trump.

The Prager corollary is "The GOP Establishment screws up almost every important task it deigns to accept!"

From now on, every Republican (or disfavored conservative leaning) President (that has a Progressive House and/or Senate) will face special prosecutor analysis, and a plethora of impeachment attempts because this Senate blinked. They (Mitch's Senate) should have done a scholarly legal/Constitutional analysis of the actual submitted Articles, published the results, and rejected them outright.

The behavior of both the House and Senate in this debacle will haunt the remains of the almost Constitutional Republic that they were entrusted with.

I believed you the first time. It seemed reasonable given the way the Democrats compete on giveaways. And the primary beneficiaries of a minimum wage increase are state gov't workers, at least in NJ, where wages are often figured from the base of the statutory minimum wage.

That's been my belief for a very long time. The US spends an incredible amount of money in international aid, often with extremely loose or in some cases virtually no oversight. Billions and billions of dollars all over the world through multiple agencies.

It is a system that is ripe for corruption and has been abused for years.

Whenever you hear a politician talk about spreading democracy or building civil society read that as sending an assload of US tax dollars to some 3rd world shithole where much if not most of it disappears and rare if every reaches the people we are told it is designed to help.

This is exactly what Ukraine was all about and it was largely run by George Soros. You want to know why Democrats are freaking out so much right now and running this obviously fake impeachment? Because Trump is right over the target.

I doubt any of them believe these charges anymore than they believed the Russia stuff. Remember Harry Reid dropping the mask after getting called out for lying about seeing Mitt's problematic tax returns: "Well, it worked, didn't it?"

There is no truth, simply what works and what doesn't work. Yesterday Joe Lockhart learned what doesn't work. He'll adjust his approach and keep on lying.

I'm currently reading a biography of Thomas Jefferson in his retirement years. In his personal life he was a notorious prolific spender and debtor, but I chuckled that he was actually proud of the fact that he left the White House poorer than when he entered it -- thus demonstrating for posterity that he was neither corrupt nor in it for personal gain.

I don't think that some Hillary supporter decides, well, they want to give free health care to illegal aliens so I'm with Trump.

It's all too fiercely tribal now. And like bin Laden said, people are with the strong horse. I think Dems are applauding the idea that Warren will pursue Trump and his family for whatever crime can be found or even made up. Screw those coal miners in WV they voted for Trump anyway.

208 Regarding the American Greatness article- Biden and the Dems want tech platforms that allow opinions and information approved by the MSM. This will eliminate Trump supporters and conservatives from sharing any article that J.J. posts since it would not be WaPo or NYT approved.
If we don't push our Republican senators and congress reps. to do something you can forget about winning future elections.

Trump is really good at stirring up trouble within the Democrat party.
First, hammering away at Bernie supporters about how the DNC will shaft him (and he's been doing this since 2016 - reminding them how Bernie was shafted back then). Now, he's reminding them their party is allowing to billionaire vanity candidates to be prominent nominees (at the expensse of others). There were people angry with Steyer for choosing to spend his money on running rather than saving The American Prospect (a publication he had financially supported in the past).

Trump fights, and he is excellent at finding just the right weak spots to punch repeatedly.

She is like a pet to them She is no different than the activists groups in the US who play sue-and-settle with like-minded federal bureaucrats.

this is so true - this needs to blow open!!!

the other thing is - ok so story about San Antonio blocking an airport Chick-Fil-A. which is annoying but a commenter on Insta had an interesting idea - what if this lawfare using taxpayer dollars is ANOTHER way of laundering our money and giving it, essentially, to leftists? Most lawyers are leftists, city pols are either lawyers or will return to law firms locally after they "retire" or their wives/friends/relatives are local law firm employees... it's a smaller scale but a similar grift.

She is like a pet to them She is no different than the activists groups in the US who play sue-and-settle with like-minded federal bureaucrats.
-- Step 1: Billionaires want to implement "green" policies that allow them to reduce all but them to serf-like lives (live in pod in the city, public transportation, eat bugs, etc.).

-- Step 2: Get daughter of activist actors to attend perform her climate change hysteric rage at Davos, EU, UN and "scold them" into implementing green policies.

-- Step 3: Pretend to be convinced by this stunning and brave child that we all must - it is imperative to little Greta's future!- that we implement the green policies they all wanted in step 1.

The key is to make it look like you were forced to do it.

281 VCDL President just on the radio. Host asked him if the rally Monday made a difference. He says he thought it did. Okay, well, that's your job I guess.

Counterpoint: the Virginia Senate is proceeding full speed on every gun bill there is. Except for the total ban which had some hinkiness in committee and got dropped but I expect it's coming back.

And not just guns the whole Leftist agenda is being enacted here. Stuff California would blanch at.

Like making mere criticism of Virginia politicians actionable.

I went Monday because the situation required a stupid and futile gesture on somebody's part.

I said before last time I participated in a political protest was on the Capitol lawn before the Obamacare vote. We have Obamacare, the Tea Party not so much.

I think that the rally was not the awakening of a people but the last struggles. Yes it is pessimistic but these people on the Left mean it. They have been keeping score and they are coming for us. That isn't hyperbole or conspiracy theory or whatever. The masks are off and the wine moms are okay with it.

All that Harry had to do was show up at a few public functions each year, smile for the cameras, and not say anything stupid. Granny the queen gave Harry and Megs a multi-million-dollar wedding, and a multi-million-dollar house as a wedding present, and also gave them @ $3 million of British taxpayers' money to refurb and furnish it to suit their extravagant PC tastes. Again, all Harry and Megs had to do was not be dicks in public. And these two holier-than-thou grifters couldn't even manage that.

===========

I think there's a curve you could apply to campaign spending and the size of a voter base.

Really small, say family unit, and money spent probably doesn't do that much (minus bribes).

As the races get bigger, the voter base larger, the distance between voter and candidate grows, money makes more of a difference.

I would estimate the top of that to be somewhere between a typical federal House race and a typical federal Senate Race (maybe something like a typical governor's race). It's at that point that increased spending doesn't do that much and you get diminishing returns.

Then you get to the presidential election, and it's covered by every newspaper and every news channel and on every bit of the internet, and ad buys suddenly don't mean very much.

That's just about ad buys, though. And since that seems to be where most of the campaigns spend their cash, it seems like a decent corollary to general spending.

The Left will preen about how progressive they are. On the fringes some people will get prosecuted here and there and that will be terrible but ultimately accepted. Lefty politicians will be found in violation and not prosecuted and that will be terrible but ultimately accepted.

Some people will move out of Virginia but others will move in.

Which reminds me, as a follow-up to the story about the poor Iranian colleges student who was prevented from returning to Boston by ICE 'with no explanation' -- found this: https://preview.tinyurl.com/t9oar47


Shahab Dehghani is the son of Kamal Dehghani Firouzabadi, a member of Iran's Majlis (parliament) who has very close ties to senior Iranian regime officials, including@JZarif, Majlis speaker Ali Larijani and even Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah.


Such individuals in Iran are termed as "aghazadeh," meaning the children of senior officials who enjoy special privileges. They live luxurious lives abroad with vast riches stolen from the Iranian people. . .

Much more at the link, including how this "student" has been agtating for Iran within the US and that Lizzie Warren has gotten involved in trying to get this Iranian agent "student" back into the US.

I am glad ICE prevented his return. It indicates that they are actively rooting out and stopping hostile foreign agents who are working within our country to destroy us.

Thank God they've stopped the bleeding. That's good news. You just hang in there and tell him to too. Keep praying, and I will do the same. I will say my rosary for him (and you!) today.

I'm glad you're saying the Hail Mary prayer. God and Mary don't care if you're Catholic or not. As Catholics we believe that all graces come from God through Mary, which is why we pray for her intercession all the time.

403 re; "Speaking truth to power"

If Leftists can squeeze the phrase out without choking, it falls to the sidewalk and makes a mess like Seth Rich bleeding out on a pair of size 9 Pradas.

Donald Trump is the one who is speaking truly which is why he's on trial in the Senate this very day.

412 My step-daughter is a foreign citizen with a green card and we took her to a Chicago area DMV shortly after she immigrated to get an Illinois state ID and Driver's License. She used her foreign passport for ID as she did not have her physical green card yet, just the #, and the person at the counter had to run that by their Manager and take several photocopies of his passport. After an hour of going back and forth and after making it clear several times that she is a legal resident and NOT a US citizen (yet), she got approved for the id and set up for her driver's test. The last step in the process was the DMV person asking her if she wanted to register to vote. I was flabbergasted. So you see, Motor Voter is a factory for creating voter fraud.

The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"I'm no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it any more 'cause it's like I'm running out of excuses, you know?" Ozzy Osbourne


Quote II

“Now think about that for a moment. ‘Executive privilege and other nonsense.’ Mr. Nadler, it is not ‘nonsense.’ These are privileges recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States. And to shred the Constitution, on the floor of the Senate. To serve what purpose? The Senate is not on trial. The Constitution doesn’t allow what just took place. Look what we’ve dealt with for the last, now 13 hours. And we hopefully are closing the proceedings, but not on a very high note.” Jay Sekulow


Quote III

The Davos Crowd and their vast armies of apparatchiks, toadies, apologists and technocrat flunkies don't understand why we would cheer their teleportation to a distant moon. Their right to rule (droit de seigneur) is so obvious and well, just so right that those doubting it must be sadly delusional. Charles Hugh Smith


Quote IV

Still, Americans seem to disagree with each other more and to dislike each other more than they have in the lifetime of most of us.

One wonders: How does it all stay together? And for how long?Patrick J. Buchanan


Quote V

"The money that is going to pay for this comes from the child safety fund, which is generated through speeding tickets and things like that," City Councilman Phil Cayten

No offense to New Jersey Morons and a certain Cob. Reason #1,984 not to live in the State of New Jersey.

Well, it seems the state is banning “realistic” toy guns.

Governor Murphy signed a bill on Tuesday that would restrict the sale of realistic toy guns and ammunition, in response to the fatal police shootings of Tamir Rice and Tyre King several years ago.

The bill has several stipulations for toy gun manufacturers, which say toy guns cannot be blue, black, silver, or aluminum, the barrel of the gun must have an orange stripe on it, and the barrel of the gun must be made with the same material as the rest of the toy gun.

Please pass the popcorn. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard sues Hillary Clinton for a shit ton of money $50 million in a defamation suit.

2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard filed a defamation suit against failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.


Gabbard filed the lawsuit over comments Hillary made in October 2019 on the Campaign HQ With David Plouffe podcast:

She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And, that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.

It's good to see the United Nations in a huff about something other than 'Climate Change'. Looks like they are all huffy at Saudi Arabia.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — U.N. experts on Wednesday called for an immediate investigation into the “possible involvement” of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the hacking of Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos’ iPhone in 2018.

“The alleged hacking of Mr. Bezos’s phone, and those of others, demands immediate investigation by U.S. and other relevant authorities, including investigation of the continuous, multi-year, direct and personal involvement of the Crown Prince in efforts to target perceived opponents,” U.N. experts said in a statement.

“The information we have received suggests the possible involvement of the Crown Prince in surveillance of Mr. Bezos, in an effort to influence, if not silence, The Washington Post’s reporting on Saudi Arabia.”

Once upon a time, in a far away place politicians told the truth once in a while. Now? Not so much. Is every politician a f*cking liar? H/T Sock Monkey


Legislators in Olympia have introduced some alarming “Trojan Horse” bills to raise our taxes that you’re not going to hear about this anywhere else.

As the name implies, a Trojan horse bill seeks to hide a piece of potentially controversial legislation under the guise of legislation that sounds more agreeable to all involved. Bills like the ones I’m about to tell you about are just another example of why our tax tabs are so high. My thanks to listener Mark in Port Orchard for this awesome tip.


Senate Bill 5130 purports to be about raising revenue to remove state fish barriers. The bill writers maintain that this would help save the salmon, which in turn helps save the orcas. It sounds good, right? But then you go down a ways in this bill and learn that they want to raise the money by charging an excise tax on every real estate sale — thousands of dollars when you sell your home. Alright, but it’s for the good of the salmon, isn’t it?

Read down a little further. I know it’s a little wonky, but no one else covers this, and you need to know what is truly going on in Olympia this Legislative session. What is the Legislature going to do with all the money raised from the real estate excise tax? It will go toward helping the salmon, right?

Wrong. Here is how it will be spent:

2 percent to a public works assistance account
4.1 percent to an education legacy trust account
1.6 percent to a city-county assistance account
16.7 percent to the motor vehicle fund
75.4 percent to the general fund — where it can be spent on whatever the Legislature wants

I did not see anything in there about funding the removal of salmon barriers; that’s only in the title of the bill. If the legislators — and the constituents — don’t bother to read the contents of the bill, they will be none the wiser. And the truth is, the majority of that money is just going to the general fund to be blown.

Coca-Cola hasn't gone completely woke. Yet. They still plan on using evil plastic for their bottles.

Coca-Cola says it has no plans to stop using single-use plastic bottles.

Speaking with the BBC at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday, Bea Perez, Coca-Cola's senior vice president for sustainability and public affairs, said the company wouldn't ditch the bottles because consumers still wanted to use them.

"Business won't be in business if we don't accommodate consumers," she said. "So as we change our bottling infrastructure, move into recycling and innovate, we also have to show the consumer what the opportunities are. They will change with us."

Christ's great command was to make disciples of all nations. The leadership of Grove United Methodist Church in the St. Paul suburb of Cottage Grove must have missed that one. H/T Bitter Clinger

COTTAGE GROVE, Minn. (AP) — A struggling Minnesota church is asking its older parishioners to leave in hopes of making it more attractive to young families.

Grove United Methodist Church in the St. Paul suburb of Cottage Grove is closing in June, with plans to relaunch in November. The present members, most of them over 60 years old, will be invited to worship elsewhere, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported. The church is asking that they stay away for two years, then consult the pastor about reapplying.

“I pray for this church, getting through this age-discrimination thing,” William Gackstetter said at church on a recent Sunday as the gray-haired heads around him nodded in agreement.

But church officials said the congregation needs a reset and the best way is to appeal to younger people.

The Grove United Methodist Church is the product of a 2008 merger with a larger church in Woodbury

We keep being told, "The science is settled." They forget to mention when it is unconvenient for them. Denver Post columnist fired for arguing there are only 2 sexes.

A Denver Post columnist says he was fired after disputing the idea that there are more than two sexes.

Jon Caldara, president of the libertarian Independence Institute, announced that he has been fired from the Post, chalking it up to "a difference in style" that his editors found "too insensitive."

"My column is not a soft voiced, sticky sweet NPR-styled piece which employs the language now mandated by the victim-centric, identity politics driven media," he said in a Facebook post. "What seemed to be the last straw for my column was my insistence that there are only two sexes and my frustration that to be inclusive of the transgendered (even that word isn’t allowed) we must lose our right to free speech."

“Terry passed away on the evening of 21 January 2020 with his wife Anna Soderstrom by his side after a long, extremely brave but always good humoured battle with a rare form of dementia, FTD.”

Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will cost you time in jail.

In the wake of the Virginia gun rights rally on Monday, Democrats in the Capitol are not slowing down their push for tyranny. They are moving a bill through the legislature that would effectively criminalize dissent against Governor Blackface Northam and other state government officials.

House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM
Everything you wanted to know about brewing a better cup of espresso but were afraid to ask.

Skilled baristas know that achieving the perfect complex flavor profile for a delectable shot of espresso is as much art as science. Get it wrong, and the resulting espresso can taste too bitter or sourly acidic rather than being a perfect mix of each. Now, as outlined in a new paper in the journal Matter, an international team of scientists has devised a mathematical model for brewing the perfect cup, over and over, while minimizing waste.

"A good espresso beverage can be made in a multitude of ways," said co-author Christopher Hendon, a computational chemist at the University of Oregon. "The point of this paper was to give people a map for making an espresso beverage that they like and then be able to make it 100 times in a row."

Don't you hate it when you are woke from a great sleep? Genius Award Winner.

A homeless man was rescued from inside the hopper of a garbage truck after the dumpster he was sleeping in was emptied into the vehicle, South Carolina police report.

According to Myrtle Beach cops, Mark Mencini, 62, yesterday morning “had been in a dumpster and when the truck picked up the dumpster, he had become trapped in the trash compartment.”

Around 4:20 AM, officers responded to a 911 call from a witness who was near a T.J. Maxx store. The caller told police dispatchers that he “heard someone yelling for help from the truck’s trash compartment.”

Many of us here on The ONT have said "F*ck Cancer" over the years. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Researchers at Cardiff University have discovered a new type of killer T-cell that offers hope of a “one-size-fits-all” cancer therapy.

T-cell therapies for cancer—where immune cells are removed, modified and returned to the patient’s blood to seek and destroy cancer cells—are the latest paradigm in cancer treatments.

The most widely-used therapy, known as CAR-T, is personalized to each patient, but it only targets a few types of cancers and has not been successful for solid tumors, which make up the vast majority of cancers.

38 The Dems keep saying that all the trials have had witnesses. And the cite the Clinton impeachment.

Yeah, but only because the guaranteed vote to dismiss DID NOT pass. Otherwise, it wouldn't even have been a trial.

The House manglers keep demanding the Senate cannot choose the option that the Clinton proceedings left to them.

And on top of that, Schiff called the idea of giving into Trump's terms on the House proceedings "Trump running the impeachment". How is it much different Nancy Pelosi demanding terms, and the House demanding that the Senate's duty is to run the Senate proceedings the way the House manglers want.

The President has a *power* of veto--not a *charge* to veto. The House has the *power* to impeach--not the *duty* to impeach. The Senate was given the SOLE. POWER. TO. TRY. along with other *powers* it does not make it a *duty* to exercise that.

85 Schiff has already argued that the House didn't need to consider the demands of Trump, that would have been similar to a court proceeding, like counsel and the ability to call witnesses, because that would have been Trump trying to "run the impeachment", which he argued was a violation of separation (a wall that they have breached with the "Whistleblower" rule change, and application to the President, who does not report to the Director of the NSA).

Now, he's demanding that the Senate agree to the House's terms. The self-obliviousness of these people is ever-shocking.

So Kennedy is on record now as saying he was "given a lot to think about that was new to him" - this is catnip to lefty wackadoodles of the press that so desperately need any thin reed to hang on to.

It is endlessly complicated and i am glad you brought it up. I can reccommend the Hess book if you want to delve into it further.

There is no way to argue that the weaponry outpaced the tactics as that is s consistent theme in warfare. Someone comes up with a new weapon, and only later does the opponent have to come up with a way to defend against it.

But what bothers me is most people today look at those who "dressed in the same colored suites, in a line, and fired by volley, as somehow quaint and at worst idiots. The history is much more complicated. Just as an example, these people could not use modern fire and maneuver because they did not have radio technology. They needed the troops to be in live so they could control them. And the fire these people put down was from hell, they knew what they were doing.

The Civil War lasted over four bloody years. If the casualties were lower, would that mean it would have lasted longer? I also came at this with the idea these guys were clueless. But I cam to my own conclusion that it was was much nuanced really. What it really comes down to is whether you think people from the 21st century know better than people from the 19th century did on how to conduct a war.
Again, I am not taking shots. I used to believe they were clueless not that long ago. But something about that bothered me. These guys served in the Mexican War. These guys went to West Point. For sure the technology advanced ahead of the tactics, but they did adjust their tactics.

If you look at the Civil War lines in 1865, they look a lot like the trenches of WW1.,
The real thing that changed warfare was the radio. When you could communication from places you could not see, it changed artillery and everything. Fire and maneuver really only came about when an individual could lay down massive fire on his own.

Again, i don't have all the answers, I am just giving you what I have learned. This is an amazing subject and well worth discussion. No doubt the Civil War would be about the worst war possible to be involved in as an American.

Black Betty was a song from old negro hymns, and first recorded by "Lead Belly" Ledbetter in 1939, but earlier versions are noted to exist.

The words to Black Betty are rather, um, suggestive to describing a certain type of woman.

By far and away, the Tom Jones version recorded in 2002 confirms this.

And to think that in June, Tom Jones, excuse me, Sir Tom Jones, will turn 80.

The infantry used to deride the cavalry as Chicken thieves. No doubt the infantry won battles in the end. But Cavalry had their place for sure. The artillery did their thing as well. In the end, to hold a place, you needed infantry.

The cavalry on both sides did major damage, that can not be challenged. And Hunt's artillery alone at Gettsyburg did as much to win a battle as any other arm.

right, as was done at Gettysburg, cavalry put you in a position of advantage. People argue on an on about frontal assaults but no Civil War leader ever wanted to lead a frontal assault. A frontal assault meant your maneuver did not work. But on both sides they led them. And the funny thing is, Gettysburg aside, many of them worked.

166 69 re: to Quint who was willowed in the last thread.

This is a great subject to argue. I think people realized that in order to try to overcome the ferocious firepower of the weapons, they needed mobility rather than trying to get bogged down in either attacking a fortified line, or having to fall back and wait for the enemy to attack your fortified line.

Which is why I think cavalry still had such a large role (or tried to make it play) in military thinking.

Technology had advanced to a point where infantry were very, very screwed, but had not advanced to a point where they were unscrewed (tanks and mechanized personnel carriers.)

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at January 22, 2020 10:09 PM (2B9A/)

>>>>>

IIRC, in 1864, Union officer Emory Upton got permission to attack a rebel trench at Spotsylvania with a dense column rather than the typical line abreast formation. The initial column formation breached the rebel defense line, but the follow-up troops got lost or misunderstood orders and didn't follow. The rebels were then able to contain the breach and eventually forced the bluecoats to retreat. The Army of the Potomac command never really understood the whole thing, and I don't believe the column attack was used again, except maybe in the Battle of the Crater, Petersburg.

As in WW1, the higher commanders in most Civil War corps and armies were not highly imaginative or receptive to tactical innovations.

179 "The real thing that changed warfare was the radio. When you could
communication from places you could not see, it changed artillery and
everything. Fire and maneuver really only came about when an individual
could lay down massive fire on his own."

I agree. If you look at WWI, the key element is the fact that the powers-that-be had the power to put millions of men into motion, but not the power to maneuver or stop them: once the machine was turned on, it had to run until it succeeded or broke down.

The Somme is a classic example: hundreds of thousands of men set into motion, all moving to a plan that could not be adjusted. The only communication they had were runners or telephones - and the latter were almost always knocked out by shell fire. So, the timetable could not be adjusted for the fact that heavy rains had made no-man's-land a quagmire. Now, I will blame the generals for their blunder with wire: they assumed that HE would blow the wire apart, but instead it simply tumbled the wire into an impenetrable mass. They should have tested HE on wire to see what happens, rather than just guessing. That careless blunder cost a lot of brave men their lives.

206 "People argue on an on about frontal assaults but no Civil War leader
ever wanted to lead a frontal assault. A frontal assault meant your
maneuver did not work. But on both sides they led them. And the funny
thing is, Gettysburg aside, many of them worked."

Really? Fredericksburg worked? (And by the way, Burnside *chose* that assault, and got his men slaughtered by the thousands.) Cold Harbor worked? The Crater worked? Vicksburg worked? Off the top of my head, the only frontal assault that actually worked was Missionary Ridge - and that was an accident.

228 175 As in WW1, the higher commanders in most Civil War corps and armies were not highly imaginative or receptive to tactical innovations.
Posted by: Gref

Nor did the Europeans ( who had many military observers) understand that The American Civil War was the first modern, industrial war with some technology.

Everything that happened on the Western Front 1914-1917 was clearly visible in 1864.

Posted by: Miklos, actual SCV at January 22, 2020 10:35 PM (QzkSJ)

The un-learned major lesson from the Civil War was that it's extremely difficult for approximately equal-sized infantry units, in contact, to get around one another's flanks in time to gain a significant tactical advantage. Good cavalry screens on the flanks made it about impossible. (Apologies to Lee and Stonewall Jackson!)

Hence Grant's long and essentially failed attempt to turn Lee's flank in 1864, the German failure to flank the Allies near Paris in August 1914 (many factors involved, though), and the following "Race to the Channel" flanking attempts by both sides.

possible to be involved in as an American.

Posted by: Quint at January 22, 2020 10:23 PM (n13/j)



THIS is almost as interesting a discussion as tactics vs equipment.



Both suck pretty hard, but I think I would rather be in the Civil
War than WWI. You have the same thing as the civil war, but staying on
the same ground (at least on the Western front.) Add Mr Maxim's
invention. Add miserable trenches. Less mobility. Gas. Slightly better
medical care.



Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at January 22, 2020 10:41 PM (2B9A/)

pretty damn awful. And if I seem to defensive of Civil War leaders and soldiers, it is simply because i have so much respect for them. There is also something about our moden day hubris. So often we just assume we are better. I am not saying that about anyone here.

But what really kills me is that we think they did not know their own weapons. That would like someone in the future saying we didn't know the net was out to get us. lol.
But seriously. This is an important subject. But these men on both sides took the charge seriously. Sure many fell and it often looked like slaughter.

But two Civil War facts. The average soldier shot down was killed at 50 yards. That is is about the same as the American Revolution. Why is that? WE can get into it. or just read Hess.
Very few people were ever killed by the bayonet in the Civil War. way more met their end that way int the American Revolution. Soldiers talked endlessly about "giving them the cold steel", but they didn't do it.

246 The Civil War also featured a lot of individual units that were quite outstanding, and yet which upper leadership didn't know how to use. I studied the Battle of Chickamauga quite a bit since an ancestor was there, and I noted that one mounted Federal unit was particularly impressive. It was Col. John Wilder's "Lightning Brigade" of mounted infantry, and he had arranged the financing to get every man in his outfit a Spencer Repeating Rifle, which could get off 14 rounds per minute, far superior to almost any other weapon of the time.

His unit had devastating firepower, and was virtually unbeatable - but in that particular battle, Gen'l Rosecrans left them to guard the southern flank and they didn't get involved in the main battle under the line had already collapsed - after that they could only cover the retreat.

Fantastic unit, Leadership didn't know how to use them.

The civil war presaged WW1 in many ways - one of them was that Artillery had become far more devastating throughout the 19th century, and was responsible for a huge number of casualties. Picket's charge at Gettysburg was cut down by the Federal cannon repeatedly firing loads of cannister into the lines like giant shotguns, taking out 20 - 30 men with each blast.

Isn't that just a function of volume of fire? By the civil war you have percussion cap revolvers and cartridges of various types. My impression, modern charges notwithstanding, the whole bayonet thing only made sense because muzzle loaders take so long to reload.

281 That's surprising. I would have thought the Spanish flu put WW I in the top spot.
Posted by: Ace's liver

That came at the end, and it was actually a largely US Army transmitted flu. It was called "Spanish " flu, because Spanish newspapers first wrote about it. W. Wilson (D) had censored US newpapers.

A young Army Captain was put in charge of handling the matter, quietly, and although he had no medical training, did an excellent job of understanding the transmission vectors, and shutting them down.

That young Eisenhower fellow turned to be pretty good at organization, logistics and whatnot.

283 I wouldn't care if Trump had overtly, specifically demanded that the Ukraine investigate the Biden/Burisma ties, or else. That's the sort of thing the CEO is *supposed* to do.

There is strong evidence that the prior Vice President of the United States was being bribed by a foreign entity, via his son. (Bribing a powerful official by directing payments to a family member is the oldest trick in the book.)

It is, however, apparently an impeachable offense for the current President of the United Starts to investigate the former Vice President's bribe-taking.

Isn't that just a function of volume of fire? By the civil war you
have percussion cap revolvers and cartridges of various types. My
impression, modern charges notwithstanding, the whole bayonet thing only
made sense because muzzle loaders take so long to reload.

Posted by: Ace's liver at January 22, 2020 11:03 PM (wGeit)

that is a complicated subject and for sure I don't have all the answers, or even half if them. Most soldiers on the line were still using muzzle loaders even if they were percussion cap. Looking back on it, the troops, regarldess of orders, stood firm and shot it out.

There was something about plunging a bayonet, which they all had, into a fellow American. They didn't do it, that that is proven.

Since i brought up the 50 yard kill zone thing I will go a bit further with it though this is not my research, It is only what I have read mainly by Hess. The Rifle -Musket of that day was very accurate with the famed Minnie Ball. But the weapons lobbed the round like a parobala. It would make the old m16 sited toward 300 yards blush. It lobbed a huge chunk of lead at a slow speed. And that meant it had to travel like a quarterbacks's bomb throw.

Most of these troops got little live fire training as the Army's were created from whole cloth. i believe it went from 5,000 one year, to one million, to 15,000 on the Union side alone. These men engaged at the standard range where they would hit what they aimed at. In many ways, that reduced the importance of the rifle musket and Minnie's design. Not saying it didn't matter. But what actually happened often differs from what we are told happened.

308 So as I see it, the case against PDT has three main elements: Military aid was withheld from Ukraine unless their President publicly announced an investigation into Burisma. All this over an announcement? BFD.

Second, Ambassador Sondland sent a false e-mail that PDT wanted no quid pro quo. Where's the proof, especially when Sondland told Republican Congressman Mike Turner of Ohio that he effectively assumed there was a quid pro quo, but no official actually told him so. This reminds of the famous courtroom scene from the TV sitcom The Odd Couple, when To y Randall says that when you Assume, you make an Ass out of You and Me.

Finally, that after the military aid was released, the White House sought to create false after the fact justifications for it. Zoe Lofgren claimed that the WH has withheld e-mails that prove that the aid was released because they "got caught." I will be interested to see what Cippolone and Sekulow's response to this will be.

310 This is my personal opinion and it has no meaning other than that For sure if I stood on the line, I would want a repeater. Then again, every troop in WW2 wanted a Grease Gun, Tommy Gun, or M1 Carbine. They were wrong as the M1 Garand won that war.

There have been more than a few arguments about whether the USA , AKA North, AKA union should have issued repeaters to the main line troops. It might have made a difference but I as a luddite, doubt it.

At Antietam they had 23,000 casualties. They say they had more than any battle in a day but I don't have those numbers. I wold like a repeater, and they made a difference in particular engagements of that war. But in no way did these weapons make a difference. As the well known historian G, Galagher has said. In on battlelield did a gatttling gun make any difference.

A narrative is no basis for conviction.

It's been narrative, narrative, narrative. And they *seldom* if ever use words directly from the transcript.

That's actual fact, not paraphrases with the worst connotations possible.

This is why thinking whether Trump did something "wrong" is a non-starter for me.

These people have no argument. And everything in the Schiffshow to Nadler to the House manglers has shown different.

Also, AMTRAK, MBNA, who knows who else. Having watched other political dynasties evolve, Joe was hoping to get Hunter on the same track, even trying the Military Service ploy.

I expect Joe was especially glad that Hunter got hooked in with Kerry's son, but Hunter is just a wormy little perverted toad, who apparently couldn't even just maintain decent behavior.

No. Not from what we've seen. The transcript is the best evidence, aside from timeline of events and Ukrainian official statements. All of it points to no quid pro quo and acquittal.

Dems are running on innuendo, hearsay from partisan actors (and in some case with criminal exposure), and so-called "expert" opinions that impeachment is proper for abuse of power.

They have nothing on motive or intent other than mind-reading and insinuations.

And as pointed out, a legit function of POTUS cannot be an impeachable offense, just because you want to insinuate an improper motive. Especially when there is a mountain of proper motive, contemporaneously stated, to justify the POTUS actions.

358 Hence Grant's long and essentially failed attempt to turn Lee's flank in 1864, the German failure to flank the Allies near Paris in August 1914 (many factors involved, though), and the following "Race to the Channel" flanking attempts by both sides.

Posted by: Gref at January 22, 2020 10:53 PM (AMIL/)


Grant wasn't really trying to turn Lee's flank. That was just a tactical approach to the real strategic objective, which was to maneuver Lee back and pin him against Richmond (the one place he could not abandon). That left Sherman free to finish the war on the western front.

Grant was a brilliant strategist. Tactically, his vision was impeded by a host of mediocre or incompetent subordinates, but he still managed to get the job done.
Sherman, on the other hand, was a great grand tactician, which is how he was able to carry out Grant's plan in the West so effectively.

According to that DM article, Ghislaine, like Hillary was using a private email server. Her email address got (accidentally) released in some court document dump, revealing the domain name. That server was immediately breached.

One of the benefits of rolling your own email server (and anyone with a Linux install can run their own email servers, and even Windows. I remember playing with some free-ware or shareware email server program for Windows years ago) is that it makes it a little harder for the cops to get at it.

They are generally a much greater hacking risk, though, if you're not on top of the latest security stuff.

Grant was extremely underrated. Yes he kept trying to flank Lee's right and he kept getting challenged. What Lee did there and many other places was amazing. Probably the greatest thing Lee ever did was get his army back from Gettysburg intact. That is not known to many but is still studied in armiy colleges around the world.

Grant was not a butcher as his own people called him. He only became a butcher when he went against Lee. He tried to maneuver but it usually did not work. What he did was stick it out, what he did was do what he had to do to win. Grant has been lost to history.Most people could barely tell you what war he fough in.much less why he matters.

Posted by: Quint at January 22, 2020 10:27 PM (n13/j)


Horses are a big target and can't low-crawl.

Q: What do you call cavalry that has engaged with machine guns?
A: Infantry

Even more important was that the European armies were focused on movement and open field action. When they (and the Civil war AND the Sino-Russian war) bogged down into trench warfare they just sat and killed each other for no real gain.
Small highly mobile groups could be used to really tip things, and that was what cavalry was best at during the Civil war. Some groups, like Cpt Mosby's troopers were geniuses at it. They could hit and disperse and join again to hit again before anything could be brought to bear on them.

One of the other reasons lines and volley fire were important was that the rate of fire for each individual weapon was very low, and the hit rate at normal engagement ranges was low. You needed volley fire to guarantee sufficient hits to make a difference.
With the Minee ball the firepower was increased and with the magazine rifles it became even higher, as was the accuracy.
With quick firing guns it was easier to hit mobile units like cavalry. With machine guns it was a Bad Idea for big horses to go to the front, but they were used in other theaters where the lines hadn't set like in France.

To my Western sensibilities, the theory of acupuncture sounds just about as zany as theory of chiropractic. But i think both methods can help in some cases by simply reducing stress in the patient.

So hoooker got his name "fighting Joe' from an arny telegraph. Someone type typed, "fighting, Joe Hooker" From that point on he was called "Fighting Joe Hooker.
Lee, who always used intitials when we could, and always referred to himself with initials, called hooker, Mr F.J. Hooker. It was meant as an insult. The Mr was a huge clue.

I'm working on a paper to submit to the Methodist Church. I may even nail it to the front door. Central to the theme is the fact (nod to Andrew Breitbart) that the Church should not be downstream of culture, but rather the other way around.

The clergy are almost entirely to blame for the degenerate direction that the church has taken. I have every intention of holding their feet to the fire. So far, all of the debates are rooted in ecclesiastical/Biblical argument. I intend to move it into the sociological realm.
