Saturday Morning Coffee Break

***


Good morning. Here are just a few items that didn't get too much attention here at the AoSHQ this past week.


  • Love is blind. Love is brave.

  • Need a laugh? Here you go.

  • AZ has bigger problems than porn. H/T redc1c4

  • Mother is quite the Junior Achievement instructor.

  • Maybe the GND should head to Russia and do a little colluding over there.

  • Serious couch time required.

  • Naughty dog, naughty, naughty.

  • The whole thing sounds smells fishy.

  • The reason why we can't have nice things.

  • Wow man. That's some big cat.

  • He was arrested for the warrants, fleeing, and possession of methamphetamine, and really bad tattoos. What a dumb f*ck.

  • Coconut milk does a female body good?

    ***

    ***

    OK, here are just a few rules for this open thread. No running with sharp objects, the 'ettes don't have cooties and leave their hair alone and as always, place nice with one another.

    Here's hoping you have a great weekend!

    Whither our Republic?

    Only one side of the ever-widening political divide thus far is willing to persecute the other for the most unremarkable of "offenses", with punishments ranging from social defenestration right through to taking away their opponent's means of providing for themselves and family, and all the way up to actual physical violence in the affirmation of their own golden calves.

    They take our patience and our forbearance for weakness and press their tyrant's advantage at every turn. Once, however, the walls are truly felt behind the backs of even the most defenseless of oppressed, a remarkable and grim resolve is generally found.

    Tyrants usually find an end that was impossible for them to foresee: An inexplicable result unaccounted for in the nihilistic actuarial tables of Marxist post-modernism.

    History books may airbrush out the Left's ubiquitous failures, thus enabling their fatal resurgences, but the lamp-posts remember how once they dangled their morbid ornaments.

    3 Good Morning Morons; today is Saturday, February 16, 2019. On this day in 1959 Fidel Castro became Premier (dictator) of Cuba after dictator Fulgencio Batista was overthrown on January 1. The US supported him until he revealed himself as a communist and a puppet of Soviet Russia.

    It was.

    I recall Trumps first act upon taking office was to deliver a balanced budget to congress that basically contained everything so-called conservatives were agitating for for decades..

    Balanced budget, ended subs for PP, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, ended funding for NPR, Defunded Obamacare and on and on...

    The GOP's reaction?

    They told Trump his budget was DOA and go pound sand.

    That right there was the first tell...

    The subsequent tells were they kept passing CR's even when that puke Paul Ryan swore up and down that they would go to regular order and pass a real honest to goodness budget which turned out to be a lie.

    Their is no future for or in the GOP, it is an illegitimate political party of charlatans and grifters much like the Conservative movement as a whole.

    We seriously need to find an alternative because we are being consumed and our substance is being hollowed out by a cadre of evil forces that seek to finish the fundamental transformation that Obama started.

    Do sanctuary cities and counties statistically track crimes committed by illegal immigrants?

    How the Chicoms dealt with their SJWs once they were no longer useful:



    "From 1962 to 1979, 16 to 18 million youth were sent to the countryside to undergo re-education.
    Sending city students to the countryside was also used to defuse the student fanaticism set in motion by the Red Guards. On December 22, 1968, Chairman Mao directed the People's Daily to publish a piece entitled "We too have two hands, let us not laze about in the city", which quoted Mao as saying "The intellectual youth must go to the country, and will be educated from living in rural poverty." In 1969 many youth were rusticated.Many students could not deal with the harsh life and died in the process of reeducation."

    When the president of the United States (POTUS) uses a presidential veto, it doesn't necessarily mean that the bill won't become a law. The US Constitution gives Congress a means to sign a bill into law after a presidential veto has occurred. In order to overturn a presidential veto, both houses in Congress must vote to approve the bill by a two-thirds majority. In cases where a majority votes does not occur, bipartisanship - the act of finding common ground via compromise - can help override the veto by gaining a majority vote. Other alternatives include declaring a law as unconstitutional or ruling against same party affiliation.

    Fox can say the vote was by a 'veto-proof' majority, but that does NOT mean it's veto-proof. You have to parse the words slowly and carefully.

    'Veto-proof majority' is the hang up you're having.

    If the members all voted the second time around the same way, which there is no guarantee of, then the veto would not stand. 'Veto-proof majority' in the first vote prior to veto does not make it veto proof. It's only an indication of support.

    They are not advancing any meaningful agenda.

    In the last two years of total control all they managed to do is pass temporary tax cuts and that's it.

    Trump has nominated solid conservatives and yes McConnell got them through but as we have seen, the courts as a whole are too far gone for the paltry few conservatives that have been confirmed to be of any utility.

    A district judge can stymie a President and by the time it gets to the SCOTUS the damage has already been done.
    And even when the SCOTUS does side with administration the rulings are so narrowly tailored as to be meaningless.

    And don't get me started with the abomination that is our LE and IC apparatus.

    We are in serious jeopardy of losing it all, and very soon.

    116 If the Mueller investigation does not totally end within the next six months, even the most die-hard "there's no Deep State" person will have to realize the country is controlled by and for the UniParty/Deep State.


    If Mueller is such a "stand-up, straight-shooter fellow," as we were told by everyone when he was appointed, how can he justify taking nearly two years (so far) to investigate something with a small, finite number of US "suspects," and with all the FBI and NSA data for those suspects in his possession? And how can he justify spending more and more taxpayer dollars to continue hounding Trump associates for only process crimes, not collusion or obstruction of justice?


    To me the only reason Mueller will continue much longer is to continue to protect the Deep State's plot against Trump: By delaying the day when all the evidence against them has to be kept from the public due to Mueller's "ongoing investigation."

    "There was also a protest held by Native American and Hebrew Israelite activists on the same day at the same location.
    Videos and photos portray the students as hateful towards the culture of the other two groups."
    ...
    "Even with videos and interviews, it is difficult to tell exactly what happened if one was not physically present. As students, but also members of a society which encourages free thinking, we should take all sides of a situation into consideration and make educated accusations."
    And then she goes on;
    "It is not difficult to see a group of young, white, MAGA supporters and be able to understand their intentions in this situation. Their intent was to be disrespectful when coming face to face with people who were protesting ages of Native American suffering."

    So it's difficult to tell what happened but that wont stop her from condemning the kids because, it seems, they were white and some wore MAGA hats. And this racist piece of crap will join the 'intellectual class'.

    Whither the Republic (and whither the West since I'm not American but this kind of thing is all over the place)? Nothing were I want to be, that's for sure.

    It was clear to Mueller within six months of being appointed that there was no substance to the collusion, obstruction or any of the other nonsense that was contrived and leveled at Trump.

    But Mueller's role was not to find the truth and dispense justice but to stymie any meaningful investigation of the real criminals in the Obama administration, Hillary World, the IC and LE apparatuses and a whole host of criminals and bad actors.

    This was all aided an abetted by Jeff Sessions and the GOP.

    And Mueller leaves six months after Trump leaves whenever that is, not before.

    I believe you are right. I believe the Dem House members plan to use Mueller's team and its Grand Jury subpoena power for the next two years. I soon expect a letter from Nadler and Schiff to new Atty General Barr, demanding (in polite terms) that Mueller and his team be kept together and available while the several House committees perform their "oversight" investigations. And those investigations will continue through the 2020 election. If Barr refuses: Accusations of obstruction of justice.


    OK, enough conspiracy theorizing for now - have a good day everyone!

    I'm not so sure. A lot of stuff has come out regarding Mueller and Handy Andy didn't do himself any favors on 60 Minutes.

    I think Trump was playing for time in dealing with this whole thing. Before he could try to get at the coup plotters he had to ensure that there were enough non-corrupt officials in the DoJ that they wouldn't botch the prosecution on purpose. He might finally be at that point.

    The way the FBI handled Kavanaugh shows that there might be at least a few sectors of the bureaucracy that can be trusted.

    151 I am not defending the GOP. I think they have squandered an historic opportunity. In 2016 they were at a high water mark. Never before has the GOP held more seats in Congress, state legislatures, and governorships. And they got spooked by the attacks over Obamacare, and in the end, they wilted. It was still a small group who backed down, but it was enough.

    The issue we face today is what to do now. It is hard to believe that really smart people are making really smart tactical decisions at this point. My hope at this juncture is that the left will continue to beclown itself and that will be enough to keep them from power. I am not saying it is a good plan, and I am not saying it is a sure thing. The silent majority no longer exists. My hope there is still a majority of sanity.

    Barr is part of Trump's detente with the Bushes. Trump realized that he couldn't fight everyone at once and needed to make some alliances. Barr is part of that.

    This was why Trump made such a big deal about H.W.'s death. He was publicly cementing the alliance by giving the guy a tribute that was otherwise completely out of alignment with what he actually accomplished.

    Trump tried to go it alone and the swamp was just too much. He is picking his battles more carefully.

    This is why the bill signing doesn't bother me. He needed to get the government reopen for the rest of the year and he actually got something in return for it. The fact that Ann Coulter is flipping out about it tells me it was the right move.

    There is a theory that pretty much everybody in high political office is blackmailable, and that the gatekeepers in both parties make sure that only blackmailable people make it through the nominating process. But Trump is not, and he somehow slipped through the cracks. This is freaking them all out.

    hell of lot more than any Conservative has done since Reagan but what
    he will do will be at the margins and be completley undone by the next
    Donk President.

    Now this is not to say he can't win re-election

    So he did what he could, recognized it wasn't enough and stepped down.

    I know we use the word "unprecedented" a lot, but it WAS in fact unprecedented. Sessions was out of his depth.

    If what mccabe wrote in his book was true, and I suspect it is due to the walk back from his comments on that 60 minutes interview, then sessions was confronted with a nightmare the day he showed up for work. And yes you are absolutely correct, he literally couldn't trust anyone at DOJ.

    He was probably met by rosenstein and "briefed" on what was going on and the need for him to step away from it unless he wanted to be included in the mess.

    That makes a lot of sense. He assumed if the people voted for his slate, they could at least try to enact their policies. This is probably not fair, but maybe he was also just passed his prime.

    What you're ignoring is that he did in fact accomplish a lot. The conspirators have been purged. McCabe was fired, Strzok and Page exposed - a lot of dirty laundry was pulled out for the world to see.

    I keep making this point but it bears repeating: Without cleaning out the riff-raff, it was impossible for Sessions or anyone else to do anything.

    If one of those hyper-partisan types was told "proscute McCabe" he would have done so in a way that let him walk. Look at the botched prosecution of Senator Menendez! They screwed it up on purpose so he could skate.

    The same thing would have happened had Sessions tried to fire everyone all at once and then use Dem conspirators to prosecute their buddies.

    I know people want to see decisive action because it makes good dramatic scenes on TV, but sometimes moving methodically, incrementally works better. Gosh, it's what got the left where it is today.

    You do understand with Sessions gone, Rosenstein would have been the Acting again, right?

    In hindsight, Sessions may come out of this looking better. We won't know how much he cleaned up DoJ until long after the fact.

    But didn't Rosenstein become Deputy AG the same time Sessions became AG? Rosie was in government somewhere when Trump and Sessions picked him to be Deputy, but I think both Sessions and Rosie were blindsided about Trump investigations by Comey, McCabe, and others when they took office. However, I still don't get why Rosie decided to appoint a Special Counsel, then select Mueller. He was either an idiot, or believed all the bullshit given him by McCabe, or blackmailed, or in on the Get Trump caper.

    Actually, that was on Congress.

    Congress has the power to put people in jail for lying to them. Strangely, they did exactly nothing to Clapper, which showed they have no problem with it.

    This is what Trump is up against. GOP lawmakers - all of them Staunch Conservatives who believe in Rule of Law - let people lie publicly to them and then do exactly nothing about it.

    So basically Trump has to fight the entire government, including people on his own side. Given that, I'd say he's doing a remarkable job.

    262 Organs from the elders will be made into a hearty stew for the camps

    Posted by: Bruce
    ________

    Actually, they were to be converted into a gruel-like substance more resembling yogurt than stew. But I don't believe it. To my profound disappointment, the camps don't exist. I so wanted to send the unenlightened to such facilities, and I thought the vacant Walmart would be the venue of such glory, only to see another store occupy this prime space.

    As for the Yogurt Green (a funny reference we Leftists use) another let-down is apparent. The yogurt plant in California was supposed to be where the elderly were converted into sustenance for the inmates, but General Mills announced they were shutting that factory down. The façade of Yoplait is ruined.

    I fear that it's all coming to an end. My dreams of destroying the bodies and spirits of those who dare to disagree with me have dissipated like the proverbial fart in the wind. My ever-present smirk of superiority is a parody of itself. Even my comments as I troll this blog, once masterpieces of instigation, have mutated into self-pitying ramblings.

    Alas, the lamp-posts are empty as they offer nothing but light in the darkness. Perhaps I'll venture into that store where the Walmart used to be, wander its aisles and ponder what could have been, what should have been, and maybe buy some birdseed for the nuthatches and the tufted titmouses (or is it titmice?) that grace my otherwise desolate winter yard.

    Eh.

    The basic problem is that we, of the middle and working class, make poor revolutionaries.

    Why?

    Because to be a member of the middle and/or working class, you:

    1) Obey and respect the Law
    2) Have planned out your life and have goals
    3) Have responsibility to your family
    4) Don't have a lot of free time because of family, church, business, friends, social obligations
    5) Aren't sitting around waiting for someone or something like gov't to make your life better, you're doing it yourself for yourself.
    6)Take responsibility for your own life.

    Taken all together that means the middle and working classes will watch their lives sink slowly then vanish quickly before they will take action.

    Trump, despite all the howling by the leftards, was a polite knock on the door as usual. Working through the system, doncha know.

    If, if we of the middle and working classes, actually decide as a group to take action,

    then, yes, we will win and win quickly because we and the planners and doers. We plan and do what we set out to do.

    Very unlikely though. The Left has effectively fractured society and natural allies.

    Look at the war against boys. How many mothers who want successful sons and young women who want to marry successful men would support that?

    ZIp. Zero. Nada. In a rational world.

    How many do support it?...a lot.

    Strangely enough, if violence comes, it won't be because of the Dims exactly.

    It will be because a-holes like the Turtle have frustrated all peaceful means of effecting change.

    Is 4-Chan Making Sense One Of The Signs Of The Apocalypse?


    Anon screed.jpg

    Well, At Least The Institutions Are Doing Fine


    Public Education’s Dirty Secret

    Pretty sobering read about the warehousing of kids that passes for “education” in too much of the country today. The system prevents kids who have the desire and ability to learn from being able to do so, in favor of coddling the kids who have neither. Kids need to be pushed, to be expected to meet standards and to expand their horizons. Too often now we do neither, and what's the result?

    I have begun everything with the idea that I could succeed, and I never had much patience with the multitudes of people who are always ready to explain why one cannot succeed. – Booker T. Washington


    Law And Order

    I tend to fall on the “back the blue” side of the equation, I think most conservatives do, but it's not unquestioning and it's not blanket. This is one of the most egregious violations of police authority that I have ever seen. This isn't law enforcement, it's thuggery.

    My 'big boss' (who's in another office a few miles away) has developed a nervous tic every time someone mentions ours to him...

    62 Say what you will about Muslims, but when we were on the (very overcrowded, hot and un-airconditioned) train from CdG to Pairs, every time an older lady got on, all the younger men we were sitting around jumped up to offer their seats, and helped her if she was carrying anything. And I am sure they were Muslim, because the young ladies they were with wore hijabs. Not full on bags, but their heads were covered.

    73 We don't need a new conservatism. We have over two hundred years of tradition in America alone, not to mention world history. We need more leaders who won't back down, won't compromise their principles and who will push back against the insanity that leftist espouses, whatever they call it. Leaders that believe in and will fight for free people, free markets; leaders that believe in and will fight for the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence, the Preamble to the Constitution the Bill of Rights.

    Just like in any war, you start fighting for hearts and minds and concurrently fight for one piece of ground - i.e. institution - at a time.
    Trump is the only American politician I see doing this.

    I have a useful analogy, the republicans are like Cuba and the democrats are like the Soviet Union. Both Cuba the Soviet Union are evil, but the Soviets, aka democrats, are the greater threat to free people free markets. The democrats must be thwarted at every turn until they are crushed.

    81 I moved in with my Dad a couple of months ago and had to quit my job to be able to care for him 24/7. Hospice is helping to keep us both going. He fought in Korea and always wore his Korean Vet hat proudly when we would leave the house. We are past going anywhere these days though. He still enjoys his Manhattan at 4pm and tonight as we watched the news, he said America is over. The Democrats have lost their minds, College grads our supposed next batch of leaders are nitwits, our Intelligence and Justice Depts are corrupt, Clinton's and Co. can openly break the law and keep on cheating the American people and Kaepernik gets 60 Million bucks for being an asshole. We are done and there isn't a damn thing any of us can or will do about it. It's over. I suggested we just quit watching the news moving forward. He agreed and is watching Gunsmoke and asked me to make him a second drink.

    112 I would have preferred that the President demanded the removal of the poison pills in the budget bill, but understand why he did what he did. I am not going to second-guess the only president since Reagan who has fought for me and mine.

    Since President Reagan left office, there have been countless pretenders wishing to claim the mantle of Reagan while doing the absolute minimum to deserve it. This town is chock-full of fakers who are at best conserva-tish--having sold out long ago to global corporations, or to careerism or are in fact crypto-leftists themselves.

    Democrats, who have been anti-American since Vietnam, have moved on; they are now post-American. The only time they get excited is about foreigners. They have little use for actual Americans. They want to dissolve ICE, dissolve citizenship, dissolve borders and dissolve the People, and elect themselves a new one. One that will in turn elect them permanently and forever, under the Swamp's Complete Theft of Every Election in America.

    This was never going to be easy. The rot has gone too deep for too long. They came so close with their Jezebel, they thought their coup against George Washington's Peaceful Transfer of Power was a done deal. That's why they're so desperate. Their false god is dying before their eyes.

    By his honest patriotism, communications skilz and his defense of American traditions, President Trump has inherited President Reagan's mantle without even trying. Let's help this man.

    115 The ballz tasing pales in comparison to an unfolding scandal here in the Houston area.

    Houston undercover P.D. officers raid a house. Two suspects DRT, five Officers wounded. One of those still in the hospital.

    This was a couple weeks back, made big news, even the national networks.

    And now?

    There was NO "confidential informant", no black-tar heroin found, only a tiny bit of weed and trace amount some un-identified powder.

    So, the undercover cop falsified an affidavit for a no-knock warrant.

    Homeowner was 28 year resident, former Marine (IIRC), salt of the earth, according to his neighbors.

    Went down fighting, against what surely looked like a home invasion mob. Guy's wife went down fighting for her man, too.

    All five cops survived. NOT all five are going to survive the coming prosecutions.

    The shit storm is coming there, and it's gonna rain HARD on at least one or two of those officers.

    141 I've read over the years something to the effect "A dull knife is dangerous", and to keep knives sharp for that reason alone. Supposedly, the story goes, a dull knife will slip, or something, and then you presumably get cut.

    I like a sharp knife, but I am not persuaded that they are safer, whenever I cut myself with a sharp knife it's always a lot worse, because, you know, it's sharp as fuck.

    Asks kid if he has put crack up his rectum, kid says no. Cop doesn't believe him, takes kid to ER. Tells ER doctor to give kid something to make him sh*t, ER administers meds, kid still doesn't expel suspected drugs.

    Cop conspires with ER doc, they medically paralyze kid to the point that they have to put him on a ventilator to keep him breathing to get him to finally relax his butt cheeks.

    Finally obtain a vial with $30 worth of crack.

    160 What was his alternative? Shut down the government forever?

    In all seriousness, this ought to be considered.

    What we have learned is that the basic functions outlined in the US Constitution as to what the limited purpose of a federal government is to handle - have been ignored, if not rebelled against by that very government.

    The US military does not serve America's interest. Our foreign policy is decidedly anti-American, in that it is overtly hostile to the interests of American citizens. The borders are deliberately set open, our culture is under attack, and the Republican form of government has been replaced by a kleptocratic kakistocracy.

    Each state basically has its own identical functions of the FedGov: environmental protection, justice system, education, national guard, welfare, transportation, etc.

    The currency isn't even US currency, it is private bank notes - Federal Reserve.

    There honestly is no valid reason to have a Federal Government because whatever interests it serves, none of it is Constitutional nor compatible with American interests and founding principles.

    A half life-time ago, I remember a bunch of long serving Dallas PD officers (now retired) who were lamenting how city politics ruined their jobs and their effectiveness.

    Relative to this topic, one retold the story of how the duty sergeant while assigning the shift goals, BOLOs and other pep talk might utter "I need some of you to take care of an auto theft problem in the north-west". Which was code for: when you find these known transgressors, work them over so that they can think about how they are wasting their life while in traction at the local hospital.

    So they would make this ball tazing thing look like playground grabass in comparison. When, after convalescing, the crims would likely relocate to a suburb and become someone else's problem.

    But the Dallas PD would reduce the complaints for auto theft.

    Sometimes delivering the occasional tuneup with the Old Hickory Wood Shampoo and a Capsaisan Facewash is the only thing that some folks respond to.

    200 Good evening.

    The end of a tough week.

    To top it off, I upgraded to Mac OS 10.13.6 and regretted it at once.

    After pulling some hair, cursing in numerous languages, and swearing deep sea oaths to stop upgrading, I am reinstalling from my Time Machine. Only another 5 hours to go to get my old system back.

    On my MacBook Air, and I want to see my Nic.

    201 At this point, Trump is operating under almost a siege scenario.
    He can only do what he can do by operating around the peripherals.
    I watched his press conference today, and I think I admire him more now than ever before.. just because of the level of opposition he is facing.
    But.. he waited too long to oppose the status quo. He should have never signed one budget or CR without getting his priorities included. And now the House is in the hands of the opposition. He should have resisted 18 months ago.
    So much for the art of the deal..
    It will be a tough couple of years.

    202 I think those cops should be flogged through the fleet and/or forced to run a gauntlet comprised of hardened criminals.

    I do note, however, that tazing folks in the balls is precisely why tazers were invented in the first place.

    Any law enforcement use is purely ancillary.

    215 I tend to be a law and order for the cops type, too.

    But....

    Just an example - my wife got a ticket for running a red light. It's a turn where there is a green arrow. The cop was on the other side of where she turned. He wrote her the ticket though he could not observe the signal from where he was. He said that the sequence of the lights went in a way that she had gone on red.

    So we went up there and videod the light sequence and she took it to court. It was NOT what the cop said it was.

    Judge dismissed the charge.

    But in the cases prior to that, the judge took the cops word over ever other defendant.

    271 I didn't watch the video, but I can imagine several scenarios where the cops might taze a perp right in his junk; that will get a man's attention in a hurry. Sounds like the guy would not do as he was told, and the cops were tired of dickin' around, pun intended.

    Except that he was the passenger in a car they were stopping for having a taillight out, AND he was complying with their orders. It wasn't even a BOLO case and he was a suspect, they simply walked up to him and in essence the sequence went "Do not resist!" "OK" "You're resisting" *tase* *tase* *tase*

    If he HAD resisted, I would have thought they went on a bit long, but my attitude would be don't want none don't start none. That wasn't the case here.

Start off on fingers and toes and work their way in.

    Lord knows what might have happened if they'd had tasers.
    Again, not defending; see my comment upthread about how I am sympathetic to an extent to black folks being leery of cops overall.

    321 was stuck in traffic some time ago.

    the cops, seemed like some sort of tactical team of some sort, had surrounded some guys a car and tased him. traffic was slow enough that you could hear the cops yelling, "stay down, stay down" then some sort of yelling from the tased guy then the tell tale noise of the taser and more yelling from somewhere out of sight on the shoulder.

    When a government kills its own citizens, it is either an assassination or an execution. I want to give the government both options - if it was a lawless, targeted and deliberate homicide, then it is an assassination. If it was lawful than it is an execution.

    379 Whacking some random shithead might be murder, but if you don't even know his name, and neither does anyone else, that most certainly is NOT an assassination.

    But we aren't talking about "some random shithead". Even the feckless Police Chief acknowledges that what his officer did was criminal in deliberately filing a false warrant so that he can "whack" (since you prefer dictionary precision) the people named on that warrant.

    So because I want to give you the benefit of the doubt I went to the golden standard of internet knowledge wikipedia and saw:

    "It is an act that may be done for financial gain, to avenge a grievance, from a desire to acquire fame or notoriety, or because of a military, security, insurgent or secret police group's command to carry out the homicide. "

    Other than the previous paragraphs "prominent person" - I think the victims were somewhere between "prominent" and "random shithead" probably closer to "shithead".

    But if we had all shitheads killed we wouldn't have too many people left on this planet, huh?

    387 So because I want to give you the benefit of the doubt I went to the golden standard of internet knowledge wikipedia and saw:

    "It is an act that may be done for financial gain, to avenge a grievance, from a desire to acquire fame or notoriety, or because of a military, security, insurgent or secret police group's command to carry out the homicide. "


    Yet another reason to disdain Wikipedia.

    Assassination refers to murder to achieve a political end. Period.

    ======

    People who relocate to Bumfuck -- or anywhere -- want more than just a solitary job, especially if they're going to have money to spend on consumables and entertainment.

    They want similar booming businesses around because they don't expect to hold their one job at Amazon for their entire career. So the environment has to be filled with industry and opportunity.

    At the same time, Amazon wants a location where they can draw on the local talent pool. If they build in Bumfuck, they'll have to pay relocation costs for 95% of their employees, what few they could get from the bottom of the barrel or from overseas.

    I'm sorry to deprecate you, but you need to think more incisively. The school board is part of government, as is the city and county government. If THEY order someone's killing, that's clearly illegal.

    If it's the STATE or FEDERAL government, after a legal trial, conviction, and sentencing, then that's perfectly legal.

    480 ...I believe single-employer towns are some kind of economic and political curiosity.

    Posted by: Blonde Morticia at February 15, 2019 11:42 PM (13CQC)



    Industrial and manufacturing giants can lift a small, rural community from poverty to prosperity inside of a decade, simply by locating one single operating plant in that locale.

    They'll certainly hire local highly qualified talent for creative or management positions, but initially, most of those are imported from out of town. Takes a while to sort the local wheat from the local chaff, you see.

    For the most part though? That "single-employer" is the salvation of that otherwise forgotten town.

    I come from an industry that leveraged such frequently, as a way to keep their manufactured products "Made in U.S.A.", vs. offshoring the production.

    And it succeeded wildly, and still does. Those local folks KNOW that they got Christmas All Year when the mega corp opened the mega factory, out above the holler.

    That's an "(almost) everyone wins" situation, right there.

    To be sure, some folks catch hell in the doing. Trailer park slum lords, payday lenders...their business falls off precipitously when prosperity spreads throughout the town and region.

The other had a big plant (now long gone) that made fan belts and radiator hoses and such for cars, and also a fairly large shoe manufacturer that made boots for the army (also long gone). It does have a smaller annex of the paper mill that makes paper for milk cartons.

    The physical location, sure. But the Queens portion of her district would have had a fair number of her constituents working there. But Alexandria Donkey-Chompers is from the Bronx portion, so obviously she doesn't give a shit about those mostly white people in Queens.

    I have not forgotten her comment about Joe Crowley, butt boy of Nancy Pelosi and not my favorite pol by any means. When talking about Crowley during the 2018 primary campaign, she stated, 'Joseph Crowley is too white to represent this district anymore.' So on top of being stupid beyond all comprehension, she's a blatant racist, too. Funny how stupidity and racism seem to go hand-in-hand.

    On a Honda Gold Wing.

    In the rain.

    Long ride, left San Antonio, made a wee detour through Orlando, FL to see the folks. Then, on up I-95.

    Overnighted in the D.C. outskirts, and next day made a visit through D.C., but pressed on through Jersey and through the tunnel on into Manhattan.

    This would've been, oh, '92 ish.

    I did find a very good pizza in Greenwich Village, but thereafter, rolled-on the throttle and made my way into CT for the night, before visiting a Corporate Location the next morning.

    Then onward to the Corporate H.Q. north of Boston, for a couple weeks of (mostly) B.S. meetings n' such.

    Factoid.

    Boston drivers are the worst I've encountered. Highly aggressive, low skilled and rude.

    The NYC cabbies were horrible, and I had to keep my head on a swivel that'd put an owl to shame. But, lay on the horn, and press the bike over into the lane as needed, and they'd make room, even if only by a single inch.

    Boston drivers wouldn't give that inch. They wanted to me dead, or somewhere behind them in traffic.

    Prudently, I let 'em power on ahead. Cause it was vital that they made that exit five miles ahead, one car length further along the road.

    I was and still am heavily recruited by Amazon for their Austin office at The Domain.

    So I relented and decided to check the place out. Cameras everywhere. The two Mills sitting in the foyer snakepit checking in guests looked soulless, thousand mile stares.

    The foyer furniture looked like a college campus frathouse. The office furniture was barely one step above folding tables, the chairs, bare minimum office, the computers, no name machines with crappy monitors. People sit shoulder to shoulder with all the fluorescent lights on and the blinds closed to the outside world.

    Pay was ok - around $200k, but it wasn't worth exchanging my soul over. I know a number of people who have worked there, basically it is very competitive where people can abandon a team and join another which is very disruptive. Many people develop drug habits, amphetamines to make it through the day, barbs to sleep at night. Antianxiety medications throughout.

    I think the work would be challenging and fulfilling (under NDA so shouldn't discuss). Given what I have seen, Amazon can and should change the world their advertisements about "not every idea ..." is accurate.

    For instance, Amazon announced in Oct 2018 it'd pay all their lowly employees $15/hr. Yay!

    599 I have a 'drivers' story. When I was in Buenos Aires, finance clients of my ex drove me around, one time at night. I noticed very few of the cars had their headlights on. I asked the driver why that was. She said, and I quote, "That's why we have streetlights."

    Buenos Aires, the Paris of South America, is gorgeous. Same shitty lefty politics as New York. We even have our own Eva Peron now.

    When I used to go to Boston on business, I'd rent a car and drive out of Logan to points north. Massholes are the absolute worst drivers I've ever encountered, with the roundabouts being seriously 'white knuckle' driving. Maryland/Joisey drives are in a tight race for second.

    Short motorcycle resume.

    Long before I bought my first Gold Wing, I was a pretty good dirt-bike pusher. Grew up in Southern CA, in the "On Any Sunday" era. My first owned bike was a Hodaka Ace 100.

    Learned to "not suck" on the track on a Yamaha RD-350, with one ride at Riverside back when the place existed.

    Many, MANY streetbikes in the pre-'Wing logbook, 'tween '74 and '83.

    Bought my first 'Wing, when I was but 22 years old. An '82 model, bought in '83. Rode it to a rally, and people were wondering what I was doing on my Dad's bike. lol

    I already HAD all the "go fasties" out of my system by then. I had Touring and Horizons in mind, ever since I was fifteen years old.

    Point is though, I did not come to "touring motorcycles" as an unskilled novice.

    All that to say this.

    Twice in Boston, I put the 'Wing up onto a downtown sidewalk, to avoid some kamikaze driver intent on sinking my battleship.

    Never had to do that before, or since.

    The TOWN doesn't suck, nearly as much as the drivers.

    Best pizza I've enjoyed is at Santarpio's Pizza. Buncha guinea dudes lookin' like retired wiseguys, running a place with a constant line of people waiting to get in.

    111 Chelsea St., East Boston.

    And yes, that's from memory.

    Upscale?

    Go to Davio's Italian Steakhouse, Arlington, St., Boston.

    The original used to be in THE shopping district on Newbury St., but got crowded out and no parking'ed out.

    My former boss' son owns the Davio's restaurants. I know the family well, and those places ARE at the upper end of the high end Italian food chain.

    Their Italian Sausage.... they make it in house, from scratch, and it's the best you'll ever have.

    East Tennessee has some neat history. It was most likely going to secede from TN and remain Union but Nashville sent troops to occupy and hold it. Lincoln put priority on East TN because of the sympathies there and there was an active guerilla effort by the East against Confederate interests.

    I agree. Living in Donkey-Chompers Congressional District, Bezos shoving a barbed-wire wrapped pineapple up de Bolshevik's and Cuomo's asses is glorious seeing as how they were salivating at the thought of an Amazon HQ in Queens. I'm also siding with Bezos based upon business principles as in 'don't tell me how to run my business'. But I think the state/city went waaaay overboard in their abatements/tax breaks for such a mega-corp, once again screwing the small business owner (and major job creator) who can never get such abatements/tax breaks.

    I see the whole thing as one lefty asshole (Bezos) got skewered, much to his surprise, by lefty assholes (de Bolshevik, Cuomo and Donkey-Chompers, to name three), then skewered them right back by saying 'take my HQ and shove it'. There are no winners in this story, only asshole losers, and that's why I find it so entertaining.

    654 Wonder if the streetcars, trams, buses in Russia still have the signs in the front saying "For invalids, mothers, veterans of the war".


    The "war" in question (late 70s) was, of course, The Big One. Or, The Great Patriotic War, as WWII is known there.


    Current day me would have spent a lot more time trying to talk with the older guys with medals on their coats (they still did that then), and the guys sitting in those sections.


    Funny, I ended up sitting opposite an old German guy just after leaving Leningrad, train from Saarbrucken to Paris, and we chatted. Explained I'd spent a semester in Leningrad; he smiled, showed me a scar/lump on his forearm, said he'd spent one winter there himself.

    From GL-1100s to GL-1500s and an GL-1800.

    And J&M speaker upgrades really make the grade.

    Best "audio" upgrade though?

    25 watt linear amplifier on the '89 Wing's CB radio.

    When I was 6 we lived in Dawsonville, and rented our house from George Elliot. His son lived next to us, and he is the only thing Dawsonville is known for, AFAIK.
    My dad is a huge NASCAR fan, and he was stoked. I had a great uncle by marriage, and dad would drive us over there and buy shine from him. They had no electricity or indoor plumbing. Addie cooked on a wood stove and she ironed with real irons. That's amazing to me.

    691 Tammy, me too! (wanting to see St Petersburg, again)


    Just came across a UToob video of an event that just took place there - 75th anniversary of the lifting of the blockade. Military formation and parade in Palace Square, in front of the Hermitage (Winter Palace) - as imposing a setting as the victory parade every May in Red Square. But January, so the troops were all decked out in winter gear, which was nice to see.


    On Nevskiy Prospyekt, the main drag in St Petersburg, buildings on one side of the street had painted on them "During bombardment this side of the street is safer" - they'd repaint/maintain those messages, decades later, as a memorial. Wonder if those are still there? Hope so.


    Judging by the Victory Day events I watch on the computer every year, Russia (while a civic wasteland and tragic waste of human potential) is a place where real, important history is not forgotten, and younger generations are not impoverished by *not* being taught to know and respect it.


    (of course that whole little 70 years of commie tyranny and oppression thinggy is NOT universally taught, but work with me here)

    Well, I just this week updated my desktop here in Arizona to Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa. Bug number one was that I could not see the scanner built into my Canon printer. It saw the printer fine, but did not see the scanner. After much fucking around, downloaded a program called "scangear" which sees the scanner and enabled me to scan some docs.

    And then I had problems trying to get Brave browser to work. The system said it could not see the listfile of software sources, and that the first entry in the file was corrupt. Finally had to log in as root, and delete all the listfiles, at which point the sytem searched for and found new ones online, and it all came together. Brave is now working OK. So I can see the HQ without ads (and it loads quickly!), and I can see both sides of kbdabear's compliance pics, and I can view ewetoobs, too.

    Nice thing about Linux is that there is a metric fuckton of support to be found out there.

    Now, that one wouldn't bother me so much. Commercial poppers aren't really that expensive (it's just a plexiglas box with an electric kettle in it) and the popcorn itself is dirt cheap, so I'd take that as an indication the company was providing cheap snacks.

    More concerning would be if they were having a catering service bring in gourmet sushi or some crap.

    You have to put in context. Right along with the circus popcorn smell forever wafting through the office is the smell of the elephants working too many hours a day to bathe.

    I've seen mini-basketball courts along with a constantly-stocked snack table that could feed a family of four in Ethiopia for a year. Those 'perks', while written off by the company, are a reason given for paying less. 'See, you don't even have to leave the office for lunch. Besides, we lost the key to the lock on the chain holding you to your desk.'

    The Soviet gurus chose NOT to "test" the device in the cesium casing as originally designed, due to massive fallout predictions.

    But it would have doubled the yield.

    And that doubled yield, would have destroyed the Bear bomber that delivered the air-dropped test load.

    The reason "Mutually Assured Destruction' didn't result in exactly that?

    I received a voucher for a bottle of Wild Turkey and a letter from Haig and Haig telling me to go to their NYC office to pick up a free bottle of Pinch.

    Going undercover among AOC's female staff, Ace carefully compels one hardcore leftist after another to resign from AOC's staff. Using his skills of seduction and a clothespin on his nose, he converts these angry, loveless harpies into all-American female patriots, one ewok injection at a time.

    In the end, Ace is discovered by AOC's chief-of-staff, and is taken to face a scantily clad AOC in the bedroom (while her cuck boyfriend watches). The tension is high as Ace attempts to derail AOC's Presidential ambitions in 2020 in a dangerous battle of truth-or-dare. It's an ewok-on-donkey-chomping escapade with an unexpected ending that will not be soon forgotten!

    Is Ace in trouble?

    Posted by: NaCly Dog at February 16, 2019 02:46 AM (u82oZ)

    773 Otho,

    As I understand it, someone, maybe AOC's SJW goons, has gone after Ace's advertisers. I didn't realize it, but apparently without that revenue, Ace can't keep the sight up, and he will go dark without the income.

    All the commenters are on board with helping out in some fashion if that should be a permanent situation. Ace is considering his options there.

    For my part, I am calling AOP and Soothsayer pussies and challening those cucks to donate. Thus far that has resulted in a 100 dollar donation...from me. Not working out quite as planned but hey its a good cause right? It can't all be about owning the foolish.

    I am confident that a solution will be found, but right now things are a bit uncertain.

    I hope that helps.

    I have done this numerous times, generally returning the product to them, when practical.

    With the sole exception of Auto Zone (with whom I no longer do business), they have always responded with product coupons, and in a recent case, a check.

    I *always* make the point that I am inquiring as to why the product failed. I never demand compensation.

    Most interesting case: I returned an English muffin to Pepperidge Farms, which had a glob of carbonized dough in the middle. I forgot about it, until, a few weeks later the doorbell rings, and standing there is a guy in a PF shirt with a large grocery bag packed with baked goods.

    I could hardly pack it all into the freezer. I was eating PF stuf for the next 6 months.

    They'll just keep saying #MuhPrivateBusinessDecisions until they come for THEM. Then, suddenly, free speech will be important to speak up for.

    I think this is the end. These people do not stop and no businesses are willing to tell them ot fuck off.

    786 This whole model of depending on the left for our income is foolish.
    One mistake we make is donating to politicians. We should direct our resources to the people who support us.
    I realized this when I donated to Romney and suddenly me email was on every single republican list and I could not unsubscribe because it was a single firm doing all the mailers, and when you unsubscribe you only were removed from that particular politicans list. So, it was like playing whack a mole.
    The kicker was when I started gettting mailers from Dems. How is that for a uniparty ?
    My point here is that we need to circle the wagons and cooperate the way the left does. No enemies to the right.
    I paid 15 a month to blizzard. That stops and it goes to Ace. I've been donating quartely to the Ewok since 2012 but that is going to monthly.

I'm thinking of a Wedge shape that's 12-feet wide and 16-feet high.. with a slot down the center and cavity at the bottom that you can fill with rocks or water to weight it down. The south side would have a layer of smooth latex that is oiled down to prevent anyone from successfully ascending the insta-wall (refreshed each day by a drones?).

    839 How I've heard section 224 described is that it is for the scenario where an illegal alien already living in the US, who has already passed a background check to become a "Sponsor", shows up at a Border Patrol station or at the border to pick up an unaccompanied minor. It gives them assurances that they won't be nabbed for deportation. Seems to me the only people this would apply to our illegals who are already sponsoring a child or have applied to sponsor (thus the background check). It may also protect existing Sponsor households from being broken up by deportations. A charitable interpretation I think is that this is all about protecting the Kids. Anyways, all the people involved have to pass a background check, so I imagine the Universe of potential illegals this applies to is small.

    Harvard Students: Dumber Than Your Dog, But Much More Confident

    Harvard University and its various colleges and professional and academic schools are considered the pinnacle of American Academia. Oh, sure, maybe their Molecular Biology department lags Stanford's, and their French Literature department is running far behind Yale's (I have no idea, nor do I care), but in the main they are representative of academic excellence in every way.

    So the fact that their students...the Crème de la Crème of American high schools, are so completely illiterate and ignorant of the basic, profound, essential guarantees of our constitution is a little bit disconcerting.

    Or not. Maybe the golden years of American Academia are behind us, and these retards (my apologies to real retards) are actually the best that America can offer, in which case, shoot me now!

    Harvard Students Call for Firing of Law Prof for Representing Harvey Weinstein

    Harvard Law School professor Ronald S. Sullivan Jr. has taken a role on the defense team of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Now some students are protesting and calling for his firing.
    One of those whiny little bitches is something called a " Social Studies and Women, Gender, and Sexuality concentrator," which in my estimation is pretty much the same thing as an apprentice fluffer on a porn movie that wasn't quite good enough to make it to the internet.

    52 My Cousin, 10 years my junior, went to Harvard undergrad for science degree. At a thanksgiving, post- her graduation, I was rewarded with a long lecture about how corporations are evil. This was now 15 or more years ago. And me = MBA and law degree, in the M&A game. She now works for a large corporation.

    108 Democracy Manifest, great!


    Tokyo - of course it all depends on interests and tastes. Can't go wrong, esp. if first exposure to Japan. Great, weird country!


    If you're a war buff, Yasukuni Shrine Museum (shrine where Jap PMs go, and the Chineee and Koh-reans go ape-shit, due to war criminals interred there). Imperial Palace tour (even though winter). Ginza, at night, walk the streets. If you're a hard-core culture tourist, Edo museum, and schedule it on a day there is sumo at the sumo-drome, next door.


    Harijuku at night (or was it Shinjuku?), dept. stores, young people, street scene, cosplay people.


    Department stores, everwhere you go! Amazing. Especially the food courts (basement level).


    Kyoto. COLD. Can't go wrong, all the major shrines/temples. Word of warning: the place can be completely mobbed by hordes of Chinese tourists (relatively recent development), though COLD winter weather may help. Nijiya market downtown; Arashiyama outside town (try to eat at one of the tofu restaurants there).


    Hiroshima. Nice town. Go to the high-rise bldg. with all the okinomiyaki restaurants in it, and the night-life area nearby. Nuke museum is "better than I expected" (my description). Again - if mil. history buff, day-trip out to Kure by train - battleship Yamato museum, Jap. navy museum (next door) - even Eta Jima (former naval academy).

    He has a BA and MBA from Harvard, and made about $50 million when he sold the internet business he founded about 20 years ago.

    Both he and his wife drive cheap Toyotas, and are very modest and down-to-earth.

Japanese Naval Self-Defense Force museum, adjacent to Senkan Yamato (battleship Yamato) museum. Tours of Eta Jima (island reached by local ferry) also available - very interesting.


    I assume you'll travel internally by train. It's great, easy (train culture). Travel light, rolling luggage.


    Coffee - Starbucks and familiar names like Tully's and Seattle's Best are all over, and fine (actually the weird differences are entertaining in themselves), but try local chains. Doutor is my favorite.

    When California did away with its HS exit exam (demonstrate proficiency in 10th grade English and 8th grade math) newspaper articles quoted our various Third World friends as gushing that NOW they could take up the place they'd been offered at UC.

    Rationale was it was unfair to keep students in school the extra time it took for remedial work, as it didn't go towards a degree.

    197 Jay, I basically stopped even looking or watching back a couple years when the CSU (state univ. system, not UC) system abandoned their remedial English/math courses - any idea how that has gone?

    I recall that the % of entering students needing such was so low, years ago, there really wasn't much data on it - and that in the last year, before the whole thing was dropped, it was something like 50% (I don't think I'm misremembering, and I'm not making it up). ]/i]

    No idea. If I had to guess, I'd guess they dropped remedial courses because so many had to take them, and had their little egos ruffled by the rubric "remedial."

    Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, many of my classmates had to take "subject A," which was remedial English.

    Of course now remedial English would probably have to start with "Run, Jane, run. See Jane run." Que?

    I actually didn't know about the ramen museum (the boss will get some stern questioning ....), but it's a personal project to explore every ramen option everywhere we go over there.


    I was going to say "eat ramen!" but you probably would anyway. One of the cheaper/quicker/easier options.


    As I said, Hiroshima is known for its okinomiyaki (sort of an open-faced omelet made in front of you on a hot steel table).


    Oh - and a possible surprise - if you don't feel like rice cakes with seaweed, fish, and green tea for breakfast ..... Japan's got the best Euro-style bakeries anywhere (well, beside parts of Europe, I guess). Train stations typically have several bakeries. If you guys like such, Japan is heaven.

    Aside from that - truly stunning - disaster, there is less $$ for barriers than Dems agreed to in the fall, a *reduction* in detention capacity for ICE, it pluses up "managing the invasion rather than stopping it" in various programs, and probably doubles H-2B visas.


    DHS public affairs seems to have a small - no, enormous - "don't know WTF they are doing/talking about" issue, going back a while. At key times their "messaging" has been less than weak and lame.

You'll find them amidst other white bags of chips in bizarre flavors (shrimp!). FamilyMarts are everywhere in Tokyo and Kyoto. A Seven Eleven equivalent.

    Kanazawa is on the west coast of Japan; the sleepy, under-developed side of Japan. Kanazawa is a museum of a city just in the fact that it wasn't bombed by the US nor renovated into a concrete jungle mess post-war.

    Super cool tea-house alleys. It's like a samurai movie set for blocks. My friends and I traveled for a bit on the west coast further south to get to Izumo ( one of the oldest shrines in Japan that they tear down and rebuild every 20 years ) and it's just a golden, ancient area.

    No one speaks english of any kind but they are super friendly and will even show you how to eat if you show any kind of confusion.

    The wall was (is) a hook. At shiny bauble for the masses. There was every intent to build it, like a high rise apartment building, or a mall. However given PDT's limited understanding of how our government works it was unlikely he'd be successful. The GOPe saw to that.

    My assumption is that CPD had unofficial access to Jussie's call logs and geolocation data to guide the ground search, then cross-referenced with other people in the area, and the reacted logs Jussie provided later on were useful 'cause of what he decided to leave out.

    There's a difference between evidence for investigation, and evidence for prosecution in a courtroom, and I think Jussie got burned real quick by the former. They likely knew it was a hoax within the first 24 hours.

    The jokes will write themselves.

    335 Can't resist temptation - check out the graphs (think Ctr for Immigration Studies has them, they're around) showing flow of intending (illegal, not authorized) migrants to the southern border since 2016. Yuuuuge, luxurious "Trump effect" (decline) .... which lasted until, I forget, this past summer or so? Then - back up.


    Confirms the real-world deterrent value of perceptions - and the rational, well-informed nature of the adversary (intending illegals and the cartels that increasingly organize/send them).


    Marini Farmer - I'm comfortable speculating there is a much less dramatic version of what you describe at play. There were striking indicators - the bad CR last March, the stunning agreement to defer the big fight until *after* the mid-terms. I've said here at various times - I cannot imagine the strategery, political or legislative, that is reflected in the actions/inactions on this huge issue.


    Hanging over it all, though, is the fundamental derailment of the constitutional system - judicial usurpation/lawlessness - it affects almost every aspect of the immigration disaster. And nobody - not just Trump - inside the Beltway seems to have the mindset, or will, to even *begin* addressing this.

    I bought one of those Mr. Heater Portable Buddies (I think. For my fortieth birthday, God gave me blindness. I just turned 50).
    Well, on low, it throws out 4500 BTUs. I've run it all week, and I can't lift the cylinder with one had. So, it's efficient, clean burning, and very warm.

    Weird! Loudmouthed Celebrities, Who Usually Can't Wait to Inflict Their Opinions on You, Suddenly Go Radio Silent on Northam, Fairfax, and Omar

    The running-dog socialists who didn't bark.

    Of course, late night alleged comedians Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon have had nothing at all to say about this whole blackface situation.

    Maybe that has something to do with their own history of using blackface.

    You know -- if they want to defend the practice, they can man up and defend it.

    If they want to say what they did was qualitatively different, they can man up and say that.

    Instead -- a cowardly silence, trusting that their Media Palz Praetorian Guard will not confront them with the question.

    Despite the controversy surrounding Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam dominating the news cycle for days, late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon avoided the subject in their monologues on Monday night.

    ...

    Both Kimmel and Fallon focused much of their monologues on Sunday's lackluster Super Bowl and squeezed in mockery of President Donald Trump.

    Wow, the innovation!

    BTW, Joy Behar also wore blackface for Halloween. She claims she went as a "beautiful African woman."

    Oh -- well if you put it like that, everything's fine then!!!

    86 >>> Jimmy Kimmel gets away with murder for his antics on the Man show. He had serial abuser and drunk Ben Affleck on last night. Weinstein's wing man

    An interesting youtube vid popped up last week on my feed. His theory is that Ben Affleck is broken right now because his recent art house film that no one saw--which he poured his soul into--bombed, but all anyone ever wants to talk about is Batman. And that the art film proves maybe he's just not that good of a director or screenwriter anymore, if he ever was. It falls into old story and romance tropes from the 90s I guess..

    That, and the knowledge that maybe pervy Weinstein's political and academy machinations, not Ben's talent, is what made him a goldenboy? That would induce anyone to alchoholism.

    I have been a long time lurker, over 10 years. The reason I come here daily is because of you, the cobs and the horde. The posts are stellar and even some of the comments You guys are informative, knowledgeable, humorous and paradoxical. You encourage us and give us hope.

    Do not give up! Now is the time to press in and double down. You are needed now more than ever.

    Recommendation... dump the ads, and do not use amazon associates link ( too many headaches and not enough money)

    Instead, go with your donation link and start selling swag and merchandise at a premium. Profits will help support the site and you. Give your readers the opportunity to support and partner with you. This will work!

    Ace believes AOC's goons are going through every post he's made on the blog going back to 2004, looking for "offensive" content, which they will use in complaining to Ace's advertisers. Trying to demonetize his blog, in effect.

    Set up a pay site if necessary. For commenting at least. It will rid us of trolls, and if any regular isn't able to pay $5 a month for commenting privileges...well I understand that they have priorities.

    262 Special counsel Robert Mueller wants ex-Trump campaign boss Paul Manafort imprisoned for up to 24 years
    Special counsel Robert Mueller in Friday night urged a federal judge in Virginia to sentence ex-Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort to between about 19 years to 24 years in prison
    Mueller, in a court filing, also suggested the judge fine Manafort between $50,000 to $24 million, order the longtime Republican operative to pay restitution of more than $24 million, and forfeit more than $4 million.
    Manafort was convicted last year of multiple crimes connected to his work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. That work predated his tenure with Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016.

    Not to be Winston Wolf or a wet blanket, but ffs, that should be knocked out by Monday and is probably easier than setting up a shadow bizarro-Ace site to woo the same advertisers that people are trying to get to ditch the HQ.

    It's not going to be retirement cash but it's a start. If it won't work or if AMZN dicks you around, remove the link. People have been using it and it's not doing any good.

    ==========

    THIS. Another great idea. I have no idea how much $ Ace needs per month to sustain this site, nor how many unique visitors he has, nor how many unique commentators he has, but the math to make this thing purr on subscription model is some combination of X & Y, where X% of [Commentators or Visitors] pay $Y/month. Wonder what that magic number is..... if 15% of us are "in" how much would each have to pay?

    372 I'll admit I'm surprised that ad revenue is a big factor for AoS. I figured more of us were voluntarily paying for our sanity and entertainment. That said, I use Brave and don't see any pop-up ads and well at 29 I'm fairly resistant to advertising in general. However I *just* learned from after mo-me chatting that a longtime AoS horde member has a bidness that does personalized mugs and things. Now I would make the effort to use a Horde business for something I was going to buy anyway. Maybe we could have horde ads in the comments area? Maybe not if the businesses fear they would get targeted by the gaystapo and whatnot but a thought.

    And Ace should seriously write a GAINZZ book. His explanations of the science of things was awesome, informative but fun and easy to follow. I think he has the legal chops to properly footnote and credit all the original sources, and folks are always looking for an easy way to get in shape. I found that via the GAINZZ threads, without the exact Ace path (I went with just 2 Meals a day rather than keto, atkins whatever ) to sweep insulin from bloodstream and limit daily calorie intake in a way that didn't require me to have superhuman willpower.

    399 I think Donald Trump ultimately has contempt for anyone who isn't Donald Trump, including his own sons. You know, why don't other people achieve what I do, or at least try? Why doesn't everybody want to be a billionaire and have a model wife? But not everybody wants that. It doesn't mean he isn't humane or caring about others. His basic decency comes through (Hi Gracie!) You cannot script that or fake it.

    He gets a pass on certain things from me because I believe he truly loves his country and wants it to succeed, if for no other reason that he doesn't want to be associated with a loser country. If it's an ego thing with him, fine by me.

    The lefties assume we worship Trump like a god because that's what they do with their tin gods. Nope. Remember at the Al Smith dinner, he went up to Hillary and told her what a tough opponent she was, he admired her for that, etc. Witnesses said she was taken aback. She certainly didn't behave with honor, that night or any other. He did, even when the crowd tried to humiliate him.

But, you know, if ads here were made into HTML flat files, and simply added to the sidebars, I would see them, and not be annoyed by them. How about getting ads from Black Rifle Coffee, and Chik Fil A, and some gun makers, for a start? Companies the Leftards already hate, so there's nothing they can do about it.

    Looks like all of the circa-1980 brick & mortar sites are going under. That business model can't cut it any more. Outsourcing distribution through, say, Amazon, means modern companies just have to focus on brand, products, advertising and manufacturing and Amazon will take it from there. Payless, doing the same business functions, ALSO has to pay thousands of leases for thousand of stores, each full of inventory and manned by dozens of employees) just to get shoes into the hands of all the people that don't shop at malls anymore.

    Jason Chafetz: Breakfast Club Evita's Story About Why Her Boyfriend Got A Government Email Address Doesn't Add Up; Should Be Referred to Ethics Committee for Investigation

    Alexandria Donkey-Chompers, lying?!

    After she was so honest and candid about her Green New Deal talking points?

    And now someone says she's lying?!

    I shan't believe it.

    No, I simply shannot.

    But Jason Chaffetz, former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Ocasio-Cortez' claims don't stack up.

    "It's totally naïve and inappropriate -- you wouldn’t allow it in most companies, let alone the House of Representatives. There should be real consequences," Chaffetz told Fox News.


    "When I was in the House, my scheduler would forward my wife my schedule once a week. But you're not allowed unfettered access. And he isn't even her spouse," he added." "... It should be referred to the ethics committee for further investigation."

    ...

    House IT rules generally prohibit the use of "the House's electronic mail systems and resources" by unauthorized members, and only "U.S. House of Representative Members, Officers, Employees, Fellows, Interns and Contractors" with appropriate permission can use the system. Still, Boyle cited the practice of sometimes allowing spouses access.

    Chaffetz said that Roberts having email access could also create other security issues and the matter should be referred to the Capitol Police for further investigation.

    "Being given a password to get into the House computer system has other potentially problematic issues," he said.

    So:

    Why was he really given a password?

    What was the actual plan here?

    Luke Thompson isn't buying Donkey-Chompers' claim that her boyfriend was merely given an email address so he could look at her calendar.



    To be honest, I don't know what that means, but based on context, I think Thompson is saying that lists Riley Roberts as an incoming member of AOC's transition team. In the replies to that comment, someone claiming to be an IT specialist says, No, that's just how permissions are entered into the system.

    Very strange, though. Boyfriends aren't permitted access to the House email system. Sometimes spouses are, but not boyfriends.

    Staffers are permitted access, of course.

    And meanwhile, Bill DeBlasio blasts the stone-cold-stupid socialist wondergirl for costing 25,000 working class people jobs.

    It's a progressive civil war.

    A hot-under-the-collar Mayor Bill de Blasio tore into Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday as he blistered both the online giant and local politicians who opposed bringing it to Queens.

    A radio host played a clip of Donkey-Chompers crowing about getting the Amazon deal cancelled, and DeBlasio ripped into her:

    "I came up watching the mistakes of progressives of the past, unfortunately what happened in this city when it almost went to bankruptcy in the 1970s," said a boiling de Blasio. "I saw all the times progressives did not show people effective governance and all the times progressives made the kinds of mistakes that alienated working people."

    Below, even the Champagne Socialists are calling Alexandria Donkey-Chompers a straight-up idiot and financial illiterate.

    (I'm curious what words in this post will be claimed to offensive by Breakfast Club Evita's antifa fanclub.)

    No one will do anything; the people at National Review in congress won't lift a finger to stop the left's coordinated and remorseless war on dissent.

    They'll just keep saying #MuhPrivateBusinessDecisions until they come for THEM. Then, suddenly, free speech will be important to speak up for.

    I think this is the end. These people do not stop and no businesses are willing to tell them ot fuck off.

    The left can say whatever they like without a single gripe from corporations; premium corporations advertise on their sites.
