UK Parliament Passes EU Withdrawal Bill, Setting January 31 As the Day the UK Regains Its Sovereignty

They still need the Queen's blessing, but that's a formality.

Wednesday’s vote paves the way for the UK to leave the EU on 31 January, awaiting formal permission from Her Majesty The Queen.

"At times it felt like we would never cross the Brexit finish line, but we’ve done it," Prime Minister Johnson declared following the vote.

The EU is preparing for vengeance:

While the EU has agreed to Britain leaving the bloc, news reports suggest that Brussels intends to punish its leading trading partner and Europe's second-largest economy.

“EU preparing to give UK worse trade deal terms than Canada or Japan,” The Telegraph reported on Monday.

Brussels is planning to hit Britain where it hurts the most. The European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, has drawn up a hit list to target the British financial sector for defying the EU to dictate regulations following the Brexit.

When it comes to trade it is hard to punish the UK without also damaging the EU. Also you significantly lesson the likelihood they will ever return. And no doubt the U.S. will que up a very favorable trade treaty with the UK ASAP.

The only point to punishing the UK is to keep any other EU member from leaving, but that high handed bullshit is exactly what will cause them to leave.

67 Britain is already projected to outpace the EU, economically.

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/ article/d37b4c70-3bbd-11ea-9bc3-b4804128329e

Britain's economy will grow faster than those of other major European countries this year as chief executives regard it as an increasingly attractive place to invest, two studies have found.

Amid growing optimism over Britain's economic outlook, the International Monetary Fund said that it would outperform the eurozone this year and next.

Assuming there is an orderly Brexit at the end of the month, and a gradual transition to a new relationship with the bloc, growth would accelerate from 1.3 per cent last year to 1.4 per cent this year and 1.5 per cent in 2021, it said.


It would be hilarious if Britain and the US saw growth, and the EU saw a recession.

The EU bureaucracy and the governments of the member countries care about money and privilege. There's much money to be made by trading with the UK. If the British govt take an uncompromising hard line, and the US backs them up, the EU will quietly surrender after a decent interval. For the money.

The EU countries are eager to do business with with Iran, North Korea, and Russia. They have no principles, other than money and privilege.

Backfire: Frequent Defector Lisa Murkowski Says She Was "Offended" By Obese Jerry Nadler's Claim That Anyone Voting Against Their Demanded Rules-Changes Was Engaged in a "Cover Up"

She voted against those rules changes, and Nadler -- who needs her vote later on -- claimed she was engaged in a "cover up" for doing so.

The Democrats still all think that their Blue Checkmark Twitter Bubble is real life.

House Democrats' handling of the Trump impeachment to date may be turning off Republicans -- notably, those seen as possible defectors in a final vote.

The first sign of a backlash among that critical group came Wednesday when Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, a moderate member of the conference, said she was offended by House manager Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s assertion that GOP members voting against allowing new testimony and evidence were engaged in a "cover-up."

"I took it as offensive," she told reporters Wednesday. "As one who is listening attentively and working hard to get to a fair process, I was offended."

Nadler's opening statement, which led to U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts admonishing those in the chamber, accused Republican senators of "voting for a cover-up, voting to deny witnesses, an absolutely indefensible vote, obviously a treacherous vote."

Meanwhile, Trump is trolling Adam Schiff:

One thing: The neck isn't pencil-like enough.

Nadler and Maxine and all the others talking "impeach impeach impeach!!" have no clue how this plays outside of their own little bubble; that's why Nadler didn't even realize how much he was screwing up his own case by insulting the Republican Senators.

This Senate is only going to go through this nonsense of a trial one time - if the House impeaches again, it will be extremely to dismiss that one on a straight party line vote at the outset, same for any other tries. They're not going to let the House hijack their time for foolishness, especially not in an election year.

What difference does being offended make now?
=======
Its not a genuine offense. But it is useful to deploy "emotion" as the reason you do something. Because then you do what you want, but you aren't answerable for the actual decision, because you were reacting to an offense.

this is pretty standard stuff they teach in the intro to being a girl class

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

They've been dumbing down public education for DECADES, and now they are trying to cash in on it.

The hope is that nobody in the general public will really know or understand how impeachment / separation of powers / Congress is actually supposed to work.

They are counting on everyone believing that Congress is every bit, if not even more powerful than the President, and by extension, any one Congresscritter is -also- more powerful, or at the very least, equal. On any subject. In any arena.

I think they're trying to cash this check too early still, but only time will tell. It is probably more true (that your average American doesn't really know just how these mechanisms work) than I'd like to see, but not true enough for them to get away with the blatant lies they are trying to pass off as truths.

Tim Scott made that point, and as far as it goes I think that's exactly right. This isn't about Trump at all, this whole Schitt-Show is about trying to get campaign material to use against 4 GOP Senators who may be on the bubble next year. I don't think it will work, but that's the plan - they know they can never remove Trump, and they don't care.

To put it bluntly, they are accusing Trump of using his position to interfere with the next election - when in fact their entire effort, from start to finish, has been about them trying to use their positions to interfere with the next election.

Except for the part about, with Biden, the only motive was a personal benefit. There was no legitimate executive benefit in getting Ukraine to fire the prosecutor and halt the Burisma investigation.


With Trump, they are legitimate executive functions to 1) investigate 2016 election meddling, 2) ensure that U.S. aid was not throwing good money after bad by ensuring that Ukraine's counter-corruption talk was not just lip service, and 3) to investigate the extent of corruption in the highest levels of the U.S. government, including the selling of the office of the vice presidency, and preventing further national security threats of a potential POTUS candidate being compromise by every tin pot dictator and his dog.

Incidentally, Gowdy gave Bret Baier a gentle smackdown when he said the allegation was Trump was looking for dirt on Obama. Gowdy told him dirt was a pejorative and had no basis in fact and what Trump was doing was investigating what Biden and team were doing in 2016, a perfectly legal and in fact duty of Trump's.

169 31 Ten minutes ago, Nadler said the House is within its rights to impeach a President for pardoning someone, even though the pardon power is absolute per the Constitution, if its judged he did so to cover-up a crime.

A public warning and threat to Trump, right there, folks, that he'd better be careful in issuing pardons to Flynn, Manafort, Stone, and others if he doesn't want to be tried again by the Senate. Holy cow!

So the House may know they're full of shit, and the Senate may know the House is full of shit, and we know they're full of shit, but there is a sizable amount of people that believe the House.

In the months after the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton went into the woods. They became almost comic, the sightings of her that would pop up on social media, as the woman who had exercised uncommon influence over American political life, who had in fact won the popular vote and nearly became president, reduced to a soul-searching wanderer in the wilderness, wearing fleece and wondering what went wrong. People asked her for selfies in public locales whose mundanity stood in contrast to her former power. Here she was, the woman who had watched Osama bin Laden die in real time, who had led one of the first major fights for healthcare reform, who had sat with presidents and prime ministers and extracted from them commitments to do things that they did not want to do.

It goes on like this. And on. And on. This author must have a sad, pathetic life.

Interesting conundrum.

What happens when a House of Representative member lies to the Senate?

Normally, speech and debate clause is operative, but members can be punished by their own House, even unto expulsion.

263 "It is impossible to deny the reality that Clinton, as an uncommonly powerful woman, was also the object of tremendous sexist vitriol, a passionate fixation on her that animated even the legitimate grievances against her with an intensity unseen in critiques of similar male politicians. The media fixated on her thick ankles, and then they fixated on her masculine pantsuits. It became a common party joke to make strange and morbid speculations about her sex life. Her personal virtues were interpreted as suspicious: intelligence morphed into cunning, determination became ambition, resolve morphed into stubbornness, care and studiousness became dishonesty and scheming."

Yes. If you read up on the players in Ukraine - I did some time ago - he was pals with some of the same corrupt oligarchs. There would be a legit concern about corruption by any rational actor.

320 "He's an a**hole, but he knew how to present his case."

He can tell a story, but I'm not sure that's the same.

This whole presentation has been built on excerpting the most favorable testimony they had in the house and stringing it together without the context of republican rebuttal questions. If this was an original presentation that might be effective, but literally everyone that might be watching this probably also watched his committee's "investigation". There's no new audience for this that isn't familiar with the contrary evidence. So it's a good story told for the wrong audience, and the wrong story told for the audience he has. That doesn't seem to be a good way to try a case at all.

325 The Pakleds were effective as antagonists, and creepy. It's possible that a spacegoing race might steal its technology from a more advanced and yet trusting species; that the thieves know just enough to get the vehicle going (as modern imbecilic city-dwellers know enough to start a car and keep it moving, but not how to repair it). Thus it'd be in character for them to steal the knowledge they need.

I believe some of the authors who have written about Larry Niven's catlike kzinti in the Man-Kzin Wars series have suggested that the kzinti cleverly enslaved a more technologically advanced race and used their ships to get off-world and create an empire . . . until they met humans.

The lantern-jawed Alaskan coke fiend is as corrupt and opportunistic as they come, but instead of working with that, Nadler attacked her ego, guaranteed to set back his cause.

In fact, I am still concerned about the corruption in Ukraine and with Zelensky in particular. He's made some Trump-beneficial moves, but I don't for a second believe it is solely because they are the right thing to do.

Zelensky is just smarted than dems and knows that Trump will be around for the forseeable future. FYI, Zelensky beat Poroshenko with something like 70%. Soon after Trump won in 2016, Ukraine, under Poroshenko, nationalized the bank at the center of the USAID money laundering scandal, presumably to hoover up the evidence and take care of loose ends.

Are you people familiar at all with how a trial works? In the prosecutor's opening statement (which isn't evidence), he only presents his absolute best stuff. He doesn't talk about the defense's case. He obviously doesn't talk about holes in his case.

401 325 The Pakleds were effective as antagonists, and creepy. It's possible that a spacegoing race might steal its technology from a more advanced and yet trusting species; that the thieves know just enough to get the vehicle going (as modern imbecilic city-dwellers know enough to start a car and keep it moving, but not how to repair it). Thus it'd be in character for them to steal the knowledge they need.

I believe some of the authors who have written about Larry Niven's catlike kzinti in the Man-Kzin Wars series have suggested that the kzinti cleverly enslaved a more technologically advanced race and used their ships to get off-world and create an empire . . . until they met humans.

Hard to know what to compare it to, but one things comes to mind - the NCAA National Championship between LSU and Clemson scored 25.6 million viewers. Last year the NFL Superbowl scored 98 million viewers, may do close to that again this year.

When you compare to total voters, the 2020 electorate is roughly expected to have 130 million voters participating. 11 million means only 8 1/2% of them are watching this.

Over 91% of the expected electorate has tuned out.

Joel Pollack/Breitbart: Adam Schiff Appears to Have Outed Himself as the Washington Post's Source for Its First "Whistleblower"/Impeachment Narratives

An old trick -- leak to a friendly outlet, and then cite that friendly outlet's Disinterested and Objective Reportage as evidence of the claim you're making.

Which you, of course, leaked to them.

We saw a lot of this "circular reporting" with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, leaking to Yahoo and other outlets and then citing Yahoo and other outlets as objective third-party confirmation of their claims.

Schiff seems to have done this.

Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) may have been an anonymous source for the Washington Post as it reported allegations that have led to the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Schiff may have outed himself during his opening arguments in the Senate trial of the president on Wednesday, as he cited an opinion article written by the Post editorial board -- an odd reference in a presentation of factual evidence.

Pollack explains that Schiff probably leaked to the opinion section of the Post, rather than the reportorial section, because you don't have to fact-check opinions. Newspapers get very loose with the "facts" they present in opinion sections.

...

The Post editorial helped create an atmosphere of suspicion and anticipation that led to the complaint’s release and the impeachment itself. And on Wednesday, the Post editorial conveniently provided a "fact" -- reliably told” story -- that Schiff could cite in his case for Trump’s removal.

But Schiff did not explain why he would treat an opinion article as "fact." Editorials are not typically reliable sources of original reporting.

The most logical explanation is that Schiff considered the article "factual" because he himself was the source. He seems to have cited the Post in the same way the FBI in the “Crossfire Hurricane” case cited Yahoo! News to the FISA court without revealing Yahoo! was using the same source as the FBI.

And speaking of the Washington Post:

The WaPo and NYT will remain forever protected. The LAT is probably in the same boat.

To borrow YD's expression, the "Triangle of Hate and Power" has its uses for them. The WaPo is Washington's leak laundromat, and the CIA's primary outlet. The NYT is the DNC's leak laundromat and the FBI's primary outlet. The LAT, to a lesser degree, handles west-coast functions.

No one trusts them. No one believes them. But those within the Triangle pretend to because it serves their purposes.

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.

"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."

How many Russian/? agents/sleepers were working in the bureaucracy of Ukraine or our Ukraine embassy? I think the last ambassador was Russian born?

164 128 Laura Ingraham was my gateway into talk radio because I thought she was an enjoyable smartass, but once I heard Tammy Bruce subbing for her and then Levin I switched to them for a number of reasons. First she tolerates RINOs way too much. Second she was way too mercenary with switching stations and rarely offering anything gratis unlike Levin, for example. Third she's a shameless starfucker for shacking up with the likes of Bathtub Boy. Plus ideologically she can be all over the place; solid on some things and not so good on others.

This is actually gonna be fun to watch - Russia has been supporting Venezuela because Maduro has been shipping them huge amounts of his gold reserves. (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.

First, the Detroiter sued his employer alleging racial discrimination in a lawsuit that settled confidentially. Then he went to the bank this week to cash his settlement check, but the Livonia bank refused to cash or deposit his check. Instead, they called the cops and initiated a fraud investigation -- actions that dumbfounded Thomas and his lawyer, triggering another lawsuit.

248 Klobuchar's unwillingness to look into Petters coincided with a time their professional relationship was flourishing.

When Klobuchar first ran for county attorney in 1998, Petters and his associates only donated $8,500 to her campaign. By the time she was running for the United States Senate in 2006, Petters had emerged as one of Klobuchar's most prolific financial backers. During that campaign alone, the Ponzi scheme operator donated more than $120,000, earning him the designation of being one of Klobuchar's single largest campaign contributors.

256 I am not sure I am on board with Ukraine being the insurance policy. There are other potential options - like the British or Australian angles to keep legs under the Russia hoax in the even that Steele didn't pan out, to justify their widened spying with additional bogus sources, etc.

I still think that the "insurance policy" was related to the Russia-centric coup attempt. Putting Ukraine in as the "insurance policy" is possible, but this pivot to Ukraine was pretty hurried and sloppy. The insurance policy talk seemed to be a lot more contextual and the context at that time was Russia and the election and - if everything went sideways - dealing with him as the president.

All of this Ukraine stuff strikes me more as, "What's next? Put it into the pipeline. I know it's weak and it isn't ready, but it has to ship. Now."

It's really a shame that all the people who support progressive politics and policies haven't understood that that's exactly the right question to ask. We do have some well-off people who support Democratic candidates, there's no doubt about that, but they've never bought a TV station. They've never gobbled up radio stations. They've never created newspapers in local communities to put out propaganda. That's all been done not just by Murdoch and Fox, but by Sinclair and by the Koch brothers and by so many others who have played a long game about how we really influence the thinking of Americans.

If it's drugs, I want some. But I think it isn't. I think it is selective vision. Jeff Bezos "gobbled up" the WaPo. left-wing Disney "gobbled up" ABC. Jeff Zucker is running CNN as a full partisan.

Does she think anyone is going to take her seriously? Fox isn't even conservative on the news side of the house and Kochs are meaningless.

302 >>Stupid move, then. Way too many moving parts people involved in Ukraine.

There are now but you have to remember what Ukraine looked like under Obama. Again, the 2014 revolution in Ukraine wasn't an investigation, it was a coup run by Soros and the Obama administration. That isn't a conspiracy theory it's a fact.

After it was over the government was staffed by the Obama administration. They controlled ever aspect of the government. There really aren't that many countries the VP of the United States can just waltz into and get the chief prosecutor in 6 hours.

Ukraine was a money laundering operation posing as a country and everyone was getting paid. Look at the number of Obama administration humps that were paraded in front of the House to back up the case that everything in Ukraine was on the up and up and Orange Man Bad. From the ambassador on down they were all involved.

How many politicians do you know that could have put up with what Trump did and uncover all this crap? I put the number at roughly zero. And look how close they came to getting away with it.

Besides, what choice did they have? According to Lee Smith an investigation into the company run by Adam Schiff's top bundler, a weapons manufacturer with operation in Ukraine, began on July 22, 2019. The call was on July 25, 2019. Walls were closing and wheels were coming off.

He hasn't found many. The left loves to point out that Trump has hired and fired a lot of staff. This is true. I don't see it as a criticism, though. A lot of swamp rats did exactly what you're describing. He got rid of them. His current core team appears to be better. We'll see.

452 >>As I noted above, and this time doing the math, if you simply subtract the Illegal Aliens from that poll, you get 54.5% in favor of keeping Trump, and 45.5% in favor of removing him. Which is about where I'd think any national election would fall if it were held today.

You know when I will worry? When he poll hits 67% or greater.

If a simple majority was the threshold for removing a president this poll might be worrisome. It's not.

+++++++++++
It matters. Not for reasons of truth about the event (Trump fixed their wagon but good by releasing the transcript and protecting it from Vindman's "edits"), but because these people are still there agitating against American citizens from within the government. If Ciaramella had compatriots - and it wouldn't be surprising to me if he did - I want them outed. Smeared. Destroyed. Removed.

I remember watching and MSNBC was not batshit crazy then. CNBC was not batshit crazy then. CNN was not batshit crazy then.

They were clearly more sympathetic to Clinton but you would see Joe DiGenova and Gloria Toensing and Kelly Anne Fitzpatrick and Anne Coulter (leggy blondes in short skirts not bad for ratings) and they would have real live discussions.

First she tolerates RINOs way too much. Second she was way too mercenary with switching stations and rarely offering anything gratis unlike Levin, for example. Third she's a shameless starfucker for shacking up with the likes of Bathtub Boy. Plus ideologically she can be all over the place; solid on some things and not so good on others.

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?

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?

Beijing or Dehli is goddamned right. Every time someone starts about plastic in the ocean, I say the same thing. It's no America's plastic in the garbage patch, it's Southeast Asia's. Malaysia in particular, but Asia accounts for about 90% of all ocean plastic. Just give me a goddamned straw already, moron.

68 from the morning thread:

269 259 >>Al Gore on Greta Thunberg: "Once again, I was struck by her potent and
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.

Gah, I have become so cynical.

She is an autistic child. It is beyond inconceivable that she is an internationally heralded speaker on any topic. This is the emperor's new clothes on a monstrous scale. Someone has to have the guts to write the true story on this and challenge the people using her. Maybe the Gore pic will launch that.

145 An elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander has been
shot dead by masked assailants in front of his house in southwestern
Iran. Crucially, he was a mid-range to possibly top commander of the
IRGC's hardline domestic wing, the Basij militia, and a close ally of
recently assassinated Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani, reports state

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.

222 We need to get CO2 up, or we all die (in 3 million years). Patrick Moore (science guy and former Greenpeace guy, also known for pushing Golden Rice) ... has some very fascinating facts ... one is that the cement making process put a lot of CO2 back in the air ... even if we ran out of fossil fuels, we could keep "retrieving" (from what the crustaceans and corals keep taking out of the air) CO2 to keep us alive. 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.

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.

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.

67 I like the peaceful scene with its soft colors and a sense of quiet movement. But I get a modern vibe (ooh, how Hippy-ish) with the strolling man's face and the hard reality of the trestle. That steel structure seems inappropriate for the rest of the scene, rather intrusive.

Including the dog adds to the relaxed sense of the image.

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.

It goes without saying he and all the other men removed it the second they stepped into church. Unlike the shmoes who routinely wear baseball caps in church today.

A simple street scene, reflecting the advanced construction technology, leisure class economy, and general hope/smugness of Europe at the time.

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.

155 139 The detail on the bridge is quite wonderful. I like how the state-of-the-art steel trellis is contrasted with the older, more traditional railing that the man is leaning on. Also, how the train on the extreme center right is mirrored almost exactly by the horse-and-buggy rig on the extreme center left. Old and busted vs new hotness.
Posted by: Kris at January 23, 2020 10:00 AM (OyyDO)

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.

170 As for buying real fedoras today, Stetson still makes them (though crowns are lower and more tapered than in the '50s and earlier). 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."

This discussion goes on, because there are those who say the "fedora" is called a "trilby" in England. But just because a hat has a narrow brim does not make it a trilby.

224 I've had more than a few (actual) fedoras over the years. Haven't had opportunity for wearing one in ages now, though, more's the pity. I've loved hats since high school days.

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.

It's been described thusly: "Cowboy hats are worn by the guys who work on the ranch. An Open Road is worn by the guy who *owns* the ranch."

A good tool to begin understanding an art work is to change something in your mind's-eye or eliminate something. How does it look different? What does the change do to the piece? You begin to understand why artists do the things they do.

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

Interesting. I wear mostly adjustable ball caps so my measurement was when I was a teen fitted for a cowboy hat . I have to look at my fitted ball caps to see what size they are. I usually just grab and see if it fits when I buy them without looking at the size. Does your head get bigger as you age? I know my hair is not as thick.

There was an outfit that made hard hats (legally-approved) in the style of Stetsons, as worn by cowboys/ I knew a few tool pushes and drilling supes who wore them. Not really practical for the guys working on the rig floor, though,

But if they could make safety Stetsons, they could make safety Fedoras. Maybe a nice gray Fedora with "Trump 2020" in charcoal?

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.

368 360 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."

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.

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.

422 My Dad always wore a hat. He had two fedoras, one he would take in to have blocked on occasion,the other everyday, and one of those crushable straw hats (Trilby?) only worn between Memorial day and labor day. They were all Stetson. Mom sent them to Goodwill after Dad passed. Could have sold those for the big bucks to some idiot hipster (or kept one).

the most annoying part, of course, is that the replica is programmed not to notice. makes you wonder what else the replica is programmed to do.

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.

=============

My only buggaboo about it all is when people demand scientific accuracy in one aspect of a piece of fiction while ignoring all the others.

"This isn't scientifically accurate in this universe of travel faster than the speed of light with no effects on time."

That's different from being inconsistent, by the way.

428 Some science fiction writers go for the hard science. It's pretty effective when done well.

Star Trek was "sciency".

You remind of a gripe I had about a next gen episode, yet another one where they never even try to examine the implications of their story line, and then they forget about it forever. 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.

The whole supernatural genre does nothing for me (even though I wrote a supernatural short story). I watched Romero's Dawn of the Dead a few months back and found it interesting, if in most spots cheesy enough for an MST3K takedown, but once I was finished found that I never needed to see it, or any other zombie-themed movie again.

YMMV.

443 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.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, 003 with a License to Kill at January 23, 2020 10:46 AM



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.



yeah, not going to do it any time soon.

Theory:

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.
