Holy Crap: Investigation Found Widespread Bribery and Kickbacks by Russia to Increase Their American Uranium Holdings During Obama Administration... While Hillary Was Approving Uranium Sale to Russia

Big, big story from Jonathan Solomon and Allison Spann.

FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow

BY JOHN SOLOMON AND ALISON SPANN

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

They also obtained an eyewitness account -- backed by documents -- indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

The racketeering scheme was conducted "with the consent of higher level officials" in Russia...

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

...

"The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions," a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.

It's worse than that, even -- it appears that Obama and Holder deliberately under-investigated and restricted the charges to as anodyne a list as possible so as not to alert the public (or even Congress) as to the full nature of the corruption.

McCain was at an event in Philly last night. Local Philly all news station said he looked gaunt, described him as wearing a sweater under his suit coat. Usually that doesn't work because it adds bulk. But if McCain is shedding the weight, that's a definite sign.

All the photographs I am seeing from last night seem to have come from the same source, so McCain may be pulling a Hillary Clinton and limiting photographers, and having control over what pictures get released.

Isn't it odd how many gay men and women are in control of our political news?

Don Lemon came out as gay, along with Shepherd Smith, Anderson Cooper, and Rachel Maddow. I'm sure I'm forgetting all sorts of others.

Considering homosexuals make up like 2% of the population, you'd almost think there was some sort of conspiracy going on.

In this, I'm gonna guess probably not. Not because the GOP is so pure and incorruptible, but because there was money involved and no way were the Dems gonna give them a cut. The whole deal was bribing and kickbacks to government officials in the Obama administration to help Putin's nuclear power schemes, so there's no reason to bribe Republicans.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

I just heard from OregonMuse's son, who tells me that his father is comfortable with sharing some details of his temporary hiatus from AoSHQ.

Several days ago OM fell and dislocated and broke his shoulder. Ouch! The catalyst was a medical issue that has been identified and will be managed. Luckily, OregonMuse seems to have married quite well (and above his station) and his wife sprang into action and got him squared away.

His shoulder requires surgical repair, which is hopefully happening as you read this. One-handed typing while stoned on painkillers is reserved for ONT writers and commenters, so it may be awhile before OregonMuse returns to the blog. But please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, or at the very least a toast of something good (maybe the Valu-Rite Gold Label) in his honor.

So...the people who want to restrict our access to weapons, presumably to end the "epidemic of gun violence" in America, have made credible threats against the life of one of their political opponents. Oh...they tossed in her kids for good measure, because there is nothing like hurting a child to make a policy point.
NRA's Dana Loesch warns haters she'll shoot back, 'won't be silenced'
Guns make us equal. It is abundantly clear that the current crop of fascists do not want us to be equal...they want us to cower and cringe and lick the government hand that feeds us. That is why they want gun control. Power. They simply do not care about violence. In fact, they love it!

25 So...the people who want to restrict our access to weapons, presumably
to end the "epidemic of gun violence" in America, have made credible
threats against the life of one of their political opponents. Oh...they
tossed in her kids for good measure, because there is nothing like
hurting a child to make a policy point.



Every timer some liberal SOB makes a gun control argument the response should be "so it is OK to outlaw the Democrat party then".

112 The Handmaid's Tale: A few comment.
1. The Handmaid of Sarah was used by Abraham to fulfill God's promise on his terms. Wrong way to do it!
2. The society in the Tale is communism. Women are taken from their husbands and boyfriends, then given to powerful rulers.
3. The cruelest people in the book are not the men, but the women that run (and ruin) the Handmaids lives.

It varies, men who have had to struggle with ill health their whole life are much better patients than ones who are generally strong and healthy. Its very frustrating to be crippled by weakness when they are ordinarily strong, so they kinda take it out on others.

Men go through all kinds of physical pain in their youth, bashing knees and scraping, cutting etc. We find out pretty early what we can take and how while it might hurt now it goes away pretty fast, so we can keep going. Being sick is something many never experience to find out how you can get through it and how to deal with it, so it feels bigger and worse than it really is.

This. When we were leaving the ER, the meds they had given me for pain were wearing off, and it felt like there was a blow torch on my face. Before we pulled away, I asked my husband if they had given him a scrip for pain meds, and he had to run back inside and ASK THE DOC FOR ONE.


Jeebus. Badly torn up face, broken facial bones, and he HAD TO ASK THE DOC. I was several months recovering, and was given enough pills to get through a week. I ended up cutting them in half and trying to wait until the pain was getting really bad before I took one. I couldn't chew anything for nearly a month.

infamous US uranium deal with Russia. TFG and Co. knew about bribes,
corruption, off shore accounts etc. and STILL let the deal go through.

And
there's a Who's Who of shitocrats named and shamed -- TFG, Kerry, both
Clintons, Holder, Comey (by inference, it was an FBI investigation)...

Yeah, it's that good.

210 OT:

I'm going to retract one thing I said last night. The Daily Mail picture of a room service cart in the hallway a few feet from the double door that Paddock shot through does show possible bullet damage. There might be 4 holes in the tablecloth and one hole in the wainscoting behind the cart. The height of those holes combined with the height of the ones in the double door would suggest that the gun was fired at a fairly downward angle and the impacts on the floor would be 30 or 40 feet from the double door.

But targeting specific people whose politics you don't like and their families for violence takes it to another level of scumbaggery (and I am being complimentary with the word).

The depth of their hatred of "normals" who don't hew to their belief system is insane. I detest Michael Moore's politics and what he says, for example, but it never occurred to me to wish him personal harm, let alone any family he may have.

That's a fairly sophisticated pattern of shooting from a 'gun novice'. Maintaining a low angle for near field, CQB targets usually takes training. Esp. with fast semi auto firing. I would have expected lots of holes in the ceiling/upper walls well down the hallway.

The Dana Loesch thing is enraging. The left's general violence at protests and at events they don't like is loathsome and should be crushed hard.



But targeting specific people whose politics you don't like and their families for violence takes it to another level of scumbaggery (and I am being complimentary with the word).



The depth of their hatred of "normals" who don't hew to their belief system is insane. I detest Michael Moore's politics and what he says, for example, but it never occurred to me to wish him personal harm, let alone any family he may have.



They "know" we are not just wrong, but wicked. But the true evil resides in the left. We need to keep our powder dry. Hope the Loesch family is ok, and proud of her stance on this.

58 Like the Caillebotte from a few days ago, this one really shows the influence of photography as well as the desire make a work more realistic. Look how crowded the right-hand-side is, while three people take up the left. In real life groups are never evenly distributed. Instead they go off in groups and cliques. Renoir is faithfully depicting this. But to counter this imbalance he evenly distributes color. The colors are also warm and bright, emphasizing a beautiful summer day in Paris, the most modern city in the world (and beautiful if you ask a Parisian). I'm not a Renoir fan, but I can see why this work is so respected.

196 Theory on Campos - (don't know if anyone else has proposed this, haven't been able to catch up on comments)

Campos was on duty, but nowhere near Mandalay Bay that night. He was off whoring and drinking and drugging or something, while he was clocked and supposed to be on the job.

So he hears about the tragedy, realizes he is about to be busted, so he gets a gun, gives himself a superficial shot to the leg and runs to the scene as soon as he's sober, saying "see? I was there! I was there!"

Then a reporter runs into him and he decided to make it ever better by spinning an absolutely wonderful story. And all of a sudden his story goes national, because it was TOO good.

And finally, at the last minute, Campos realizes how much trouble he is in, especially when it comes out that his gunshot wound is from a small caliber handgun that he keeps at home.

If you were Campos, what would you do today?

I don't think you're being a prick at all. My concern is not over the seizure of the phone or device as identified in a search warrant. My concern is forcing an individual to engage in an act of self-incrimination - the unlocking of the phone or device via biometric identification - once it's been seized. Related but separate issues in my mind. There is no substantive difference to me between that and forcing someone to admit that yes that's my kilo of cocaine as something merely incident to a search. It's a dangerous path to go down.

And finally, at the last minute, Campos realizes how much trouble he is in, especially when it comes out that his gunshot wound is from a small caliber handgun that he keeps at home.

If you were Campos, what would you do today?

272 I think Insomniac's point was that, if YOU have a wallsafe, and the police have a warrant to examine the contents of said wallsafe, YOU are under no obligation to open that safe.

The police can hire a locksmith or whatever, but you do not have to unlock the safe for them.
Posted by: GMan at October 17, 2017 10:29 AM (sxq57)

Correct. They will try to pressure you to open it for them so they can later say that part of the search was consensual in case there's a defect in the warrant.

*shrug*

There are good ones and bad ones.

"Good ones"
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the
Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make
secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed
Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and
kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and
court documents show.



"Bad ones"
Rather
than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of
Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more
years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark



Nothing new under the sun.

Employers force employees to do all sorts of things. Standing for the National Anthem is benign in comparison to many things. For instance, NFL players undergo regular random drug testing. That is much more invasive than being required to stand.

How much color would there be in front of a river, though? i mean, they just went boating, it looks like a riverbank to me, but I guess it could be the ocean or a lake, but either way, not much color.

And I'd say that's the underside of a tent, so that color would be faded, and in afternoon light, things also seem faded, or possibly suffused with a more golden light. (I assume afternoon because of the activity itself and the foodstuffs on the table)

You may be right. I may be wrong.

But understand this. Law enforcement collects facts and evidence. That's it. They do not prosecute. They collect the facts and the evidence and turn it over to the prosecution.

The prosecutor is usually involved early in the investigation but may not be ware of day to day developments as he may have 100 cases assigned. Prosecutors are very frequently influenced by politics as the the flow of funding for prosecutions are controlled by an appointed Chief Prosecutor or AUSA.

Prosecutors decline to prosecute cases every day. Every single day. For all kinds of reasons. It sucks but it is true.

Justice and law enforcement are frequently corrupt, But "slowness to act" is not necessarily a function of corruption.

Cowardice might be a better description.

Anyway, I got distracted by the girl at the bottom left who's getting all goo goo with her Yorkie. Gah! She's good enough looking but she's not getting all the attention right now so she's going to make a scene with the dog to make sure the spotlight is on her.

I understand that, for sure. I believe the NFL has every right to tell them to. I am not arguing that part of it, and there is no comparison to the government compelling someone to stand.

I am not arguing it from a free speech standpoint; I am not even sure that I am arguing it at all, since I think the NFL is well withing their rights to compel it....

I'm female , god damn it; I can hold all sorts of conflicting beliefs simultaneously. You just keep bitterly clinging to all your male logic and and patriarchal facts and shit!

375 The investigation was ultimately supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who now serves as President Trump's deputy attorney general, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, now the deputy FBI director under Trump, Justice Department documents show.

Both men now play a key role in the current investigation into possible, but still unproven collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's campaign during the 2016 election. McCabe is under congressional and Justice Department inspector general investigation in connection with money his wife's Virginia state Senate campaign accepted in 2015 from now-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe at a time when McAuliffe was reportedly under investigation by the FBI.

The Morning Report 10/17/17

atimeforchoosing.jpg

Good morning kids. Well, we're loaded for bear so let's dive right in. First up, in the Mandalay Bay massacre, the security guard who was shot some time before the psycho opened up on the crowd has suddenly disappeared from an urgent care facility shortly before he was going to go before the TV cameras and break his silence. In related news, the bi-sexual GOP and partisan Dems have a bump stock ban bill ready that will, get this, ban ALL semi-automatic rifles. And, tangentially, the great Dana Loesch has been forced to move because some peace loving, tolerant liberals have hurled death threats against her for supporting the NRA. One even threatened to "rape her to death." Pro Tip to the MFM: War on Women right there. Oh wait, Loesch is "untermenshcen."

On the political front, PDT and McYertle had a confab and then a joint presser. Although the latter seemed to be on board for moving ahead with the agenda, he took a shot at Steve Bannon and announced support for incumbent RINOs that Bannon has targeted for primary challenges. Frankly, I think the jowl-encrusted Estabishmentarian leader is scared out of his shell. The more he and others protest that what Bannon is doing is disastrous, the more it convinces me that it's the 100% right thing to do. In fact, if anyone from the Bannon camp is reading this, yours truly is pale, restive and ready to join the team.

Meanwhile, the good Roger Simon has a piece about the four horse's asses of the apocalypse who are sabotaging PDT. One of them he names is Rand Paul, but he does separate him out with a caveat and I do agree with the overall tone of the piece. One of them is of course the perpetually-dying John "Hyman Roth" McCain who clings to life not because he fears his impending reservation in the Infernal Reaches, but to screw the American people until the last grain of sand in the hourglass tumbles down. Amazing how hate can sometimes be even more powerful than love, or even death. He won some sort of award and used the occasion to blast the President's foreign policy; this from the man who helped Obama/Clinton engineer the napalming of the middle east and then the secret arms deal to jihadists in Syria that needlessly wasted the lives of Chris Stevens and three other Americans at Benghazi.

We also have some interesting notes on the judicial front. There's a report that PDT thinks he might have upwards of three SCOTUS picks in his first term, which would set a record. And as Rush said yesterday:

His judicial nominees.... In fact, there's a story here in the Stack I have here that the judicial nominee aspect of what Trump is doing - which is happening under the radar. This is one of the reasons why the confirmation process of these people is so slow is because the Democrats understand that even if Trump serves two terms, the judges that are going to be in place - even after his first term - are going to be sufficient to thwart many attempts to undermine the Trump agenda that the left would normally succeed at in the courts with their judges.

And this is right-on-the-money true. Judicial nominees... Not just the Supreme Court, but all the federal district courts and the appellate court nominees. This is the way the left has always had election insurance. Okay, so they lose a presidential election, or they lose control of the Senate. But they've got their judges that will thwart every attempt by the newly empowered Republicans to implement theirs. We've seen it with Trump and his travel ban, for example. But these judicial nominations that he's making are adding up, and they're going to become even greater in number to the point that he will himself have Trump agenda insurance on the courts long after he's gone.

Well, here's hoping. But one thing that will rain on Rush's and our collective parade is a story that a Chicago judge has declared America a "sanctuary nation." Shockingly, the miscreant in a black robe was a Reagan appointee, which only goes to show. Still, you can tell how good or bad an appointee will be by the viciousness of the opposition from the left. They automatically oppose everyone, so veracity of the attack is the only gauge.

From hither and yon, a good essay from the great Jeffrey Lord that dovetails nicely with my observations about how the Weinstein scandal is an indicator that we are at at a societal inflection point, the FBI has confirmed Comey is a duplicitous lackey scumbag, the Mueller collusion probe has got less than nothing (germane to the investigation, anyway) and finally I leave you with the latest mini-stroke from Nutsy Palsi where she essentially admits that she's older than dirt.

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

30 I'm firmly in the camp that every elected official, down to dog catcher, should face a primary challenge every single primary if for no other reason than to remind elected officials that it's not "their" seat.

It infuriates me to read well what has so and so done to deserve to lose his seat. No. A trillion times no. The question should always be framed what has so and so done to deserve to be reelected.


On Trump getting up to four Supreme Court nominations his first term, yeah, I can see that. It has nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with the hands of time ticking inexorably along. Though, speaking of hate keeping you warm, that's why Ginsburg is still with us.

This is where I tell the joke that no one lives longer than the widows of rich men and Supreme Court Justices.

36 If Trump gets just three total SCOTUS picks it will change the course of the Court to the right for the next generation.

He already had Gorsuch and I think that Ruth "Buzzy" Ginsburg will be next followed by Kennedy.

Not sure if he will get to replace sotamayer though. While she does has diabetes and is obese, she might outlast Trump.

But I try to do too much, and am very fatigued at the end of the day. As a lifetime insomniac, I can appreciate being fatigued and exhausted, but not feeling sleepy. Oh well, comme si, comme sa. (got to tempt the barrel).

They dismantled the building, bulldozed the ground, and planted pine trees in an effort to hide the camp and what was done there. It has been estimated that 250,000 people were killed at this place.

During the revolt of 14 October 1943, about 600 prisoners tried to escape; about half succeeded in crossing the fence, of whom around 50 evaded capture. Shortly after the revolt, the Germans closed the camp, bulldozed the earth, and planted it over with pine trees to conceal its location.

There was also an uprising and mass escape at the time. But by '43 as the Soviets were advancing west, yes, the Germans tried covering up the death camps. In fact, later on, they had both Soviet POWs and Jews dig up the mass graves of the victims shot by the Ensatzgruppen at the start of Barbarossa and then burn the corpses. Then, they too were shot and burned to wipe out all witnesses.

The Dems are stirring up BLM Antifa , the Resistance lynch mobs that don't view him much differently than Trump and Bannon and will gladly give him the same treatment. Yet he is worried about process, procedures and reaching consensus with Dems. while they are whittling their knives to slit his throat. Republicans like him are willfully ignorant of the situation we are in.

From yesterday

Another illegal Obama program bites the dust. The EPA's illegal 'sue and settle' crap is now gone. The Obama's EPA would collude with the econazis to start a civil suit to get harsher regulations that they could not push through congress. The EPA would then 'settle out of court' and implement the new regulations whining that they had no choice because 'court order'. This is blatantly illegal but they got away with it because there is no opposition Party.

The comments, from the ultra-left AV Club, are pretty high on the millikohn scale. Reader's Digest Condensed version:

1. Chicago's not THE most dangerous city in America but Trump acts like it is because racist. Plus Obama lived there so extra racist. Oh, and FOX News, also racist.

2. OK, Chicago's pretty dangerous but that's because it borers Indiana and we all know who was governor of Indiana.

3. Conservatives love guns but hate gun violence derp derp look how clever my ridiculous argument is.

Even without the cameras you have video from each elevator, time of opening of every door and which keycard did it, and time of opening of every stairway emergency door.

And yes, even if you claim to guests that you have no hallway cameras, for their privacy, you have them, hidden, but there for insurance reasons.

With Comfort underway in the vicinity of San Juan, Puerto Rico, providing medical assistance throughout a region devastated by Hurricane Maria, the birth of Sara aboard the ship was a reminder of the work to be done but also hope for the future of the island.

281 Another oddity in Vegas. Paddock rented the adjoining room a few days before the shooting and it had the window broken out of it too. His end room was 32135 so what was the adjoining room number? 32134 or 32136. This guy says he was in 32134 which if it wasn't the one with the broken window it would have to be the one that couldn't be adjoining because the stairwell was in between the two rooms.

292 I use to install security cameras in a past career.

So I know a little something about this.

But those hotels are covered with cameras.

Halls, elevators, main floors.

The hall cameras might not be actively watched by people 24/7 but any activity will be recorded. And time stamped.

The cameras in the casino where the money is are actively watched. In case of cheating, some sore loser doing a grab and go with his loses, or if some employee might be cheating and keeping a share of the take.

But a big money casino and hotel will have cameras rolling with the time and location of all the locations.

If a camera went out, It's a safe bet they had a spare and a crew to change it fast.

A good system would have a DVR with a good two weeks worth (at least) of back video before it started getting recored over.

Something like the Las Vegas shooter? The police should have had a copy of all the available footage within an hour of learning what casino the guy was in.

325 Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., slammed "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in an impassioned speech while accepting the Liberty Medal in Philadelphia this evening.

McCain, who was presented with the medal by former Vice President Joe Biden, began by saying he was humbled by the award before eventually lashing out at the nationalism that has swept the U.S. and warning against leaving the nation's place of prominence in the international community.

329 One reason Las Vegas authorities may be slow-walking this is CYA on response time and buying time to develop a new SWAT response plan.

Have you tried to drive down the Strip? At any time of the day or night? How could any SWAT Team or large group of regular police get to a major Strip hotel "quickly" to stop a terrorist attack? Las Vegas authorities may be trying to develop a terrorism response plan - for public consumption - that tries to reassure visitors that they will be safe in Vegas. And to try to scare potential terrorists away.

Not at all. We live in an incredibly litigious society as you know. People sue at the drop of a hat whether they have cause or not. See Kaerpernick, Colin.

A furious farmer drove his quad bike at anti-hunt campaigners and threw a flurry of punches during a shocking attack.
The man targeted members of the West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs as they filmed by his farm on Saturday afternoon.
In footage captured by the group, the farmer, dressed in green John Deere overalls, tears up to them on his quad before shouting 'get off my land'.


Walt Kowalski pleased?

Well, this certainly is some Bad News. Wi-Fi security has been breached say experts.

At about 7AM ET this morning, researchers revealed details of a new exploit called KRACK that takes advantage of vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi security to let attackers eavesdrop on traffic between computers and wireless access points. The exploit, as first reported by Ars Technica, takes advantage of several key management vulnerabilities in the WPA2 security protocol, the popular authentication scheme used to protect personal and enterprise Wi-Fi networks. “If your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected,” say researchers.

So yeah, this is bad.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

It seems that House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has handpicked the man who will replace her as leader of the leftwing caucus, and she’s chosen one of her more divisive colleagues to take her place.

Pelosi told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that she had already chosen Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to take her place as the face of the Democrat minority in the House.


This should be interesting to watch.

Oh-oh, Affirmative action hurts more than it helps. So says a UCLA professor.

Sander said that while this seems like a topic that should receive more attention, academia tends to sweep the information under the rug or try to discredit it. He cited a situation stemming from his own campus as an example.

“Michael Schill (the former dean of the UCLA Law School) told me privately that he thought it was a breakthrough study,” Sander said. But after it was published, Sander said that Schill sent an email to the student body suggesting “there are those of us who seriously question the credibility of this research.”

The teachings of Islam could have prevented the pig like behavior of Harvey Weinstein so says Qasim Rashid.

I’m a Muslim, and a civil rights lawyer with a special interest in advocating for women’s rights. My advocacy is informed not just by the law, but by strategies detailed in Islamic teachings and Prophet Muhammad’s example to pre-empt sexual abuse. Yes, the cancer of sexual abuse against women that we see in Christian majority America is just as prevalent in Muslim majority Pakistan, but also in Hindu majority India and state atheist China. This proves that men worldwide are failing in our responsibility to end sexual abuse and gender based violence.

The Anti-Gun lobby. It didn't take long after the Las Vegas shootings to file suit.

The massacre in Las Vegas caught a lot of people off-guard. No one foresaw anything of the kind happening in Sin City. However, it does appear to have been enough to prompt at least one lawsuit for an unimplemented law passed via ballot initiative in Nevada. The group known as Nevadans For Background Checks, with the help of the Bloomberg-backed Everytown For Gun Safety, managed to convince Nevada voters that universal background checks were not only desirable but beneficial.

They say that the grass is always greener on the other side. Megyn Kelly is finding that old saying is bullshit.

Her “Megyn Kelly Today” viewership slipped from 0.77 ratings points on Monday to 0.54 ratings points on Tuesday of last week.

“It’s a possible all-time low for ‘Today.’ It may even be lower than her [Fox] cable show. [NBC News president] Noah [Oppenheim] and [NBC News and MSNBC chairman] Andy [Lack] are in big trouble,” a source told us.

Another source added, “That’s a big drop. They have to turn this around.”

Kelly also appeared for the first time on MSNBC earlier this week.

“It’s unthinkable. You don’t see Matt [Lauer] or Savannah [Guthrie] on MSNBC … It’s not a good sign.

The ONT Musical Interlude


1961, Decca records released 'Crazy' by Patsy Cline. The ballad, composed by Willie Nelson gave Cline a No.2 country hit in 1962. Nelson originally wrote the song for country singer Billy Walker, but Walker turned it down. The song's eventual success helped launch Nelson as a performer as well as a songwriter. It spent 21 weeks on the chart for Cline, and eventually became one of her signature tunes. via thisdayinmusic.com

October 16, 2001, Two security guards were sacked after refusing to allow Bob Dylan into his own concert. Dylan who had demanded that security on his 'Love and Theft' tour should be tighter than ever didn't have a pass when he arrived backstage. via thisdayinmusic.com

Hustler publisher Larry Flynt offers up an impeachment bounty on PDT. How is he able to pony up such money? Unlike Hugh Hefner, diversity.

But how does he pay for it all? Many were shocked last month when Flynt’s peer, Hugh Hefner, died at age 91 with what may have been as little as $15 million in assets. That was in part because the rise of internet pornography gutted Hefner’s Playboy empire, and one might think Flynt had been battered by the same storm.

But when he was considering taking the company public in 2014, the now 74-year-old Flynt told USA Today that the privately-held Larry Flynt Publications was worth more than $500 million. That’s plausible because, while Hustler’s print circulation, like Playboy’s, was decimated by digital disruption, Flynt has aggressively diversified into a sprawling empire. His businesses now include video porn production, brand licensing, real estate, and even a casino. He told Forbes in 2014 that publishing accounted for less than 5% of his company’s revenue.

The pain continues for Harvey Weinstein. France to strip Weinstein's French Medal of Honor.

President Emmanuel Macron says he has begun procedures to strip U.S. movie producer Harvey Weinstein of his Legion d’Honneur following allegations of sexual harassment.

“Yes, I’ve begun the procedures to withdraw the Legion d’Honneur,” Macron said on TF1 television. “Because his actions lack honor.

I feel better now knowing that German soccer players are concerned about peace, love and understanding. Soccer players imitate NFL players.

A Berlin-based soccer team knelt before a game on Saturday.

Both players and officials of Hertha Berlin got down on one knee prior to the game "For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!" according to a tweet by the team.

"We are living in the 21st century, not the 18th century, but there are some people who haven't developed their ideologies accordingly," one of the the teams players, Sebastian Langkamp, told Sky Sports in an interview, according to the BBC. "If we can give them a bit of help in doing so, then that's good."

I wonder what would happen if you say, "It's none of your Goddamn business.

NHS doctors and nurses in England will be required to ask every patient from the age of 16 to declare their sexual orientation.

Anybody having a face-to-face appointment will be asked about whether they are heterosexual or straight, gay or lesbian, bisexual or other, including asexual.

NHS England says it needs to record the sexual orientation of adults to fulfil its legal duties to provide equally for gay people.

40 Regarding the WPA2 hack...

A lot of big companies (including my current employer) have their employees' laptops default to wireless even if the laptop is currently plugged into the network. The employee has to manually turn off the wireless in order to use the (superior) wired connection.This is to avoid potential issues with clueless employees.

Unfortunately, it also means that most major corporations are probably a potential gold mine for anyone who can figure out how to use this hack on their premises.


Regarding Adam Schiff -

IIRC, Schiff's in the next district over from where I live. The last time I remember hearing about him in the news was when he engaged in a bit of hypocrisy about one of his fellow congress critters early this year.

Sen. John McCain warned against giving into fear and turning toward "spurious nationalism" Monday at an event honoring the war hero's contributions to the US.

"To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century," the Arizona Republican said, "to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain 'the last best hope of earth' for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history."

Something I was thinking about today:

The left, through Hollywood, has made an argument that pre-1960's america in business and other places was a hopeless morass of racism and sexism.

The thing is the antidote has been feminism and civil rights. Both things have had the opposite of the intended purpose.

At least the old system encouraged people to be better than they are, rather than condemning them roundly for falling short, saying they were hopelessly damned by association, etc.

A strong magnet will "find" a few drywall screws, if you slowly pass it over the area where you want to find a stud. Worst case: you drill a row of holes before finding it, The base plate of that contilever mount will hide your misses, until it's taken down in future. And small drilled holes are one hell of lot easier to fix with spackle than a whole section of board pulled away.

She said it was just awful and someone needs to get fired. There was no parking, and in the "VIP" area, they were stacked like sardines. There was supposed to be food, but it was all gone by the time they got to it.

That's not Trump's mess, but the local Republican party fuck up, and someone indeed ought to be fired.

207 Most Docs I've spoken with tell me antibiotics are way, way over prescribed. But it does seem a bit crazy. If you go right in the minute you feel pretty bad, it's take some otc pain meds and call us if things don't
shape up in a couple of weeks. But if you grind it out, I swear the infections can dig in incredibly deep.

And it's not like you can just pop in at the Docs for a quick impromptu look see, especially if you're dealing with a specialist.

Got his share packed in containers and ready to freeze. When I got to his house and opened the garage door I was greeted by the smell of a failed freezer. Apparently the breaker had tripped when both the air compressor and freezer started at the same time. Shrimp from last year, flounder, cobia, strawberries all swimming in three inches of putrid water. Took most of the rest of the day to get everything cleaned up. Now when I eat anything and try to swallow, the smell from that freezer comes back.

Eeeew! I can relate. Many years ago, I helped a friend move from Kelowna, B.C. to a rented house in Calgary, Alberta. House was on a hillside, had a walk-out basement. In that basement was a deep freeze, unplugged. Basement smelled a little bad. Made the mistake of opening up the deep freeze. It was 3/4 full of squid. Spoiled squid. In August. The stench hit like a sonic boom. We slammed the lid closed, and hustled that sucker out the patio doors, and ditched it by the alley fence.

267 114 Let me ask ya'll a question. Are antibiotics some kind of class 9 restricted substance and I've just never heard of it? I went to the dentist and said "Look, I've got an infected tooth and the infection has spread to my sinuses, but I can't afford to have any work done on the tooth right now. All I want is an antibiotic to stop the infection and then I can come back in 4 weeks to have the tooth taken care of once I get my bonus check."

But nooooooo. Gotta have X-rays $$ and an office visit $$$ and yadda yadda yadda.

So now I'm just stuck with sweating it out.

Posted by: AshevilleRobert at October 16, 2017 10:16 PM (w+Jhj)

Liability. If the dentist gives you a script and sends you on your way with your infected tooth and sinuses and whatever else, then the dentist is on the hook if bad things happen to you as a result of his substandard treatment.

Sure, now you say you will take responsibility, but if the infection spreads to your brain or heart or whatever and you die, your family might sue the piss out of him. Not worth the risk to him.

You might try a search on pet fish supply stores and antibiotics.

One big problem with treating yourself for an infection is that it might take two or three tries to hit on an effective antibiotic or combo. And if you don't fully knock it out, it comes back even harder to treat.

And sometimes it is simply best to go to the pros. Head and sinus infections is one of them, imho.

Posted by: LASue at October 16, 2017 10:58 PM (hZ+us)


I've broken a toe falling backwards, true story. Wet shower shoes on a freshly-waxed floor, fell back, legs flew out and kicked a closed door, ended up with a gumby boot for a week.

Neither coffee nor stairs were involved though, real or purely fabricated because of an inexorable compulsion to lie about everything all the time for the sake of lying.

Electromagnets.

If you're talking permanent magnet motors, they do use some pretty doggone powerful ones. "AlNiCo" is one common type, an alloy of Aluminum, Nickel, and Cobalt. Makes very strong permanent magnet.

433 Another tl/dr. This time on Vegas.

In the Las Vegas shooting the constantly changing timeline is a problem. They are speaking to us, the public, as if their information sources are just handwritten log entries, VHS tape, and the recollections of witnesses but every piece of information that the police/FBI has is also in digital form.

Every time a door is opened, a car goes in or out, there is a timestamped entry on a hard-drive and a backup. Cameras everywhere feed video to hard-drives. Every radio call there is audio timestamped on a hard-drive. Every cell phone call there is a time stamp on a hard-drive. Every cell phone video collected, and wiped by the police/FBI before the phones were returned, is timestamped by the phone.

Within an hour or two by going over these digital records and the witness statements a good hard timeline should have been assembled. Now if they were still looking for other suspects then I could see them doing a "no comment" and they didn't say much for days. On October 4th they dropped a timeline. Then days later changed it - a lot. Then on the 13th changed it again sorta back to where it was but still with oddities.

One big one is that there are now statements about checking on the security door where both maintenance worker Schuck and security man Campos are switched in the role of who went to first to check the door from the stairwell side and found it stuck closed and then went back down the stairs and up another way to the 32nd floor to check the door from the hall side. Schuck stated he did that and now the LVPD is saying Campos did it.

Also the audio of radio calls from Schuck, Campos? and the security office seem to say that Schuck was fired on while approaching the stairwell door and that Campos, where ever he was didn't know where Schuck was at that time.

Pictures in the Daily Mail show a meal cart just a few feet down the hallway. Another picture of officers walking away from the crime scene down the same hallway. Neither picture shows any bullet damage. 200 rounds would do a lot of damage. On the audio of the radio call with Schuck, Campos, and the security office at the start 5 gunshots are heard. Another Daily Mail picture of the double door which was shot through shows around 10 holes. Some more could be hidden but not 190 more.

And now Campos has disappeared. He left a meeting with the union people just before his first interview and went to a clinic, it's reported, and then vanished.

This whole mess is like a suspect that keeps changing his story to fit facts that the police show him they have. It smells. Of what I don't know. They are claiming incompetence but the smell is of something worse.

Transcript of audio of radio call.
{Gunfire} {five rapid shots heard as radio comes on.}
Schuck: "Call the police, someone's fired a gun up here." "Someone's firing a rifle on the 32nd floor - down the hallway"
Campos: "Copy, Hey, He's on 32!" "Stephen, get out of the way ."
Security center: "Be safe."
Campos: "Stephen make sure you're out of the way."
Schuck: "Copy."
Security center: "Base to 106, Stephen. Security wants to know if you know a room."
Schuck: "It's at the end ofthe hallway, uh, I can't ten you what room. It looked like he fired down the hallway when I got close to the door."
Security center: "Copy, so it's down the 100 hallway, correct?"
Schuck: "Security's up here."
Campos: "Stephen, where you at?"
Schuck: "100 hallway, don't go, uh ... "

I mostly agree with you.

When I really want to rile up my (very left wing) brother, I can point out that he's the poster-child for "White Privilege." Parent's married before he was conceived (and still married to this day), upper-middle class family, decent public school (from which he graduated), Bachelor's degree with (relatively) minimal debt.

He works for the Public Library making less than $30k/yr.

I have fewer "White Privilege points" (never bothered to graduate College). I'm a software developer making 6 figures.

It ain't your "privilege." Some of it's luck and opportunity, but a lot of it good choices and perseverance.

The reason is that the frontier orbitals (f-orbitals in this case) are so closely held, that their diameter is actually within the Shannon radii of the Xenon core. This is why lanthanide are predominantly tri-cationic.

Because of this, each additional electron in the f-orbitals naturally wants to be unpaired because there is an energy cost for pairing up rather than have two unpaired electrons in different equivalent orbitals. This is why dioxygen that we breath is a di-radical with a degenerate HOMO.

That whole dialog was a setup just for that, wasn't it?

Posted by: AllenG (DedicatedTenther) at October 16, 2017 11:30 PM (h9QN9)


Nope.

Dioxygen (i.e. "O2") has for its HOMO (highest occupied molecular orbital), two orbitals of equal energy, each on capable of having two paired electrons each. Since Oxygen has two electrons to share in those orbitals, they prefer to occupy different ones since there is an energy penalty for pairing up electrons. That is also an anti-bonding orbital.

Dinitrogen (i.e. "N2") has one less electron per atom, so it has no electrons in an anti-bonding orbital, it is tripply bonded. The oxygen has two more electrions with makes it on average doubly bonded. Difluroine (i.e. "F2") has one more per atom than oxygen and is thus singly bonded because it has four electrons in anti-bonding orbitals. Once you go to neon, than the anti-bonding orbitals are full and completely negate the bonding... thus giving a noble gas shell that is inert.

520 No matter what you could've changed, I guarantee you that most likely you would still be about where you're at now.

Maybe not the same place or the same people but the same circumstances.

I just had this thrown in my face. After 30 some years of wondering what an old girlfriend was doing and how her life had gone, I connected back up with her over the phone and text.

Turns out she married a guy a lot like me and is doing pretty much the same sort of work she was doing when she was with me or when we parted.

Oh, there's been kids along the way and some illnesses but pretty much she'd be where she is now if she'd been with me or this other guy.

Only difference is, I'd probably be a lot different. Don't know if happier or not. Tough call to judge that from here.

So don't miss what never happened and appreciate what you've got and how you got there.

Anything else is window dressing. IMO

The EM catapult system uses a linear induction motor. The magnetic field is generated by a current, a heavy current.

Why do people lie?
Why do people hide things?

Because the truth will personally damage them somehow.

To me, that means that the FBI is implicated in this. HEAVILY. They are shifting the timeline to try to figure out a way to get out of this.

A while back there was an article in the NYT about the FBI and terrorism plots. The gist was that the FBI engages people undercover, encourages them to do illegal things, and then swoops in to save the day.

Is that what happened here?

Or was Paddock selling guns to ISIS for the FBI, and the plan went awry?

Who knows?

However, I am certain that the FBI is lying and is continuing to lie to us.

As for the time stamps, I hear they're hard to get around from an editing standpoint. And there are LOTS of time stamps for the FBI to change.

I'd be very surprised.

Steam needs piping, condensers, and a whole bunch of other shit. That takes space that's been allocated for other purposes already. And not just space, but adjacent space, and consideration about what spaces it's next to, etc. The ship was never designed with steam cats in mind, it was designed to produce a lot of electricity, and electrical buses have different requirements from steam lines. Best case would be MAYBE the rest of the class having some kind of steam system and Ford turning into a kind of floating humiliation with 'EMALS testbed' as a fig leaf for 'can't do anything right'.
Also, it would be an enormously embarrassing thing for the Navy and General Atomics to have to admit that they couldn't make EMALS work and had to go back to steam (if they even could). There aren't enough E-7s and O-5s in Christendom to sacrifice on the altar of protecting some contractors' and admirals' retirements.

575 Have a friend at FB, John DiLeo, who listed as his all-time favorite ROCK song... "Blue Moon," by the Marcels.

Uh. I commented to him:

"John, not to be argumentative, but the Marcels IMHO weren't really rock. They were doo-wop, which from everything I've read was an offshoot of 1950s R&B and jazz, rather than the rock-'n-roll of the time. It *is* a great song though.

Also IMHO 'rock' as we know it today wasn't really invented until about 1964, between the Beatles, Kinks, Rolling Stones and Animals (and all the forgotten bands of that era, who they ripped off)."


He acknowledged I'm probably right, but that doo-wop was the only subgenre of the rock era he really enjoyed.

581 I liked those cryptic little "push-push" magnetic latches on early 70's stereo rack doors. I copied the method for several mountings in my house, hidden latches, flush-fitting vent grilles, and the like. American Science and Surplus has some real grab-n-snatchers.

As time goes by and technology demands more of us, I've used them less. I've come to realize that strong magnetic fields just hanging around the house can have shocking inadvertent effects on various modern appliances. Screens, phones, tapes, cores, strips, drives, steppers...and whatever is coming.

Going back a generation, in the late 70's I was the manager of what was at that time the biggest "console-based" computer room in the county. My ATM card had wiped itself three times before it dawned on me what was going on.

588 Sounds like these "rare earth" magnets are the 'organic' version of plain ol' magnets.

Posted by: Soothsayer -- Fake Commenter at October 16, 2017 11:13 PM (0JwE

Up until circa 1930, magnets were made from types of iron and steel, and they did not retain their magnetism well.

Then Alnico (alloy of aluminum, nickel, and cobalt) was invented, and iron magnets went the way of the buggy whip.

Alnico reigned supreme in the field until circa 1950, when ceramic (ferrite) magnets were invented. These soon supplanted Alnico in things like speakers and small motors, and could be made in flexible rubber form, too, for thing like refrigerator door seals, and magnetic vehicle signs.

Neodymium (rare earth) magnets started showing up circa 1980 in tech stuff like hard drives, and specialty motors. They can be much stronger for their size than either Alnico or ceramic, but cost a lot more, too.

Don't put too much credence in the dates I gave you, but the general sequence is correct.

602 Re finding studs: Find an electric outlet near the location in question. The outlet box will be nailed to a stud; since most folks are right-handed, the box will usually be nailed to the right side of the stud. Knocking on the wall with a knuckle will confirm stud's location; studs are 1-1/2 inches wide, so you have a little room for error. They're usually 16" center-to-center (occ 24"). Home Depot sells GRK brand washer-head structural screws; they're gold-colored with a washer head and deep threads, and two or three 3-1/2 inch screws into a stud would hold that TV with me (200#) hanging from it. Rub a bit of wax or soap on the threads before you run the screws in with your trusty screwgun or cordless drill. While you're at HD, buy rare-earth magnets too, in the hardware aisle.

There's a terminal emulator for Mac that simulates old terminals - not just the protocols, but the actual displays. It's got presets for VT52, VT100, C64, Apple, all the old green screens and the like. Simulates tube distortion and reflection, phosphor decay, scan rate, flicker, noise, all the ~warm analog~ stuff. Pick a preset or tweak the settings yourself.

Best feature?

Bitter, no, but they've extended the service life of the Harriers (2025?), which came as a shock to me. They're old.

A wag at a certain large USMC air station said by the time the F-35 is available to replace both the F-18 and AV-8B, the Marines will be able to apply as a chapter of the Commemorative Air Force, thanks to the age of their airframes.

So we've got a new all-purpose tactical plane whose first blocs won't be suitable for combat slated to fly off a carrier that can't launch them. But that's OK, the senior brass will be too busy shtupping each other's wives to attend to business, so the young Marxist and black nationalist service academy grads will have to step up to solve the problem.

Bud Holland notwithstanding, B-52s weren't designed for aerobatics. Fighters and attack craft do deal with a lot more stress, which leads to thirty year old airframes designed to do, say, xG being limited to x-1G and so on. A lifetime of CATOBAR operations also puts stress on an airframe on top of the normal stress a fighter sees, even if they are designed with it in mind.

641 qdpsteve, I get into "discussions" about doo-wop several times every car show season. I like doo wop just fine, as far as it goes. Maybe Elvis a little less. If you have a car show with any damn car from the 1950's, it's going to be doo wop and Elvis all damn day long, as if nobody in the 50's ever listened to anything else.

Fact of the matter was, neither was very acceptable until the end of the era. OK, everybody wants to think they're The Rebel, I get it -- although the more that "comes out" about James Dean, the more I'd slide over on the bench, there...

I really like cutting-edge jazz music from the same period. Critics are starting to say that 1957 to 1959 was the peak period, both for new releases and for general popularity. And yet, my Dave Brubeck records are...unwelcome.

The car I most often "show" is from 1963. Sure I like the Beach Boys, but a guy with a cutting-edge muscle car in 1963 was listening to Stan Getz play bossa nova. That is also not a branch of rock'n'roll. But I'm capable of playing it real loud. You'd be surprised how stuffy these old farts can be.

----

I reject more images because the camera operator screwed up (me) than I do because of a generic (nonbrand name) lens defect.

And I have a brand name lens that has a very narrow depth of field when wide open (not a design defect) which is good when I want to isolate the subject from the background, but bad when I'm in a hurry and autofocus picks the wrong thing to focus on.

For an amateur photographer, the aftermarket generic lenses are good enough if you are on a tight budget.

654 The car I most often "show" is from 1963. Sure I like the Beach Boys, but a guy with a cutting-edge muscle car in 1963 was listening to Stan Getz play bossa nova. That is also not a branch of rock'n'roll. But I'm capable of playing it real loud. You'd be surprised how stuffy these old farts can be.

Posted by: Stringer Davis at October 17, 2017 12:52 AM (H5rtT)

That's because the guys who wrapped their ass in fiberglass in 1963 were mostly not teenagers, but older guys with good jobs who could afford such a toy. The teenagers were driving around in '41 Fords, not a '59.

Per hogmartin's comment, I was told that the USMC's F-18s were all "trapped out" - could no longer do non-emergency, non-war-time carrier service because they had hit their maximum arrested landing number. This may be an out-dated factoid, was a few years back, but the source was a pilot with the Red Devils (VMFA-232) who seemed extremely well-versed in the USMC procurement situation. I know the Navy is doing rebuilds on F-18s to extend service life, not sure if they are carrier-rated or not.

I should know this, but certainly Anna Puma does, if she comes along. In any case, no way to run a railroad.

658 I say that if you're trying to recreate your youth then go with a beater that runs good and has a great stereo. That's the kind of care I drove back then.

These guys who buy vintage rebuilt Mustangs or Corvettes are missing the most fun part of driving back then: beating the shit out of your car cause it was going tits up soon any way.

I've always took real good care of the innards and let the exterior go to shit.

I don't drive the exterior I drive the innards. That always runs like a top or at least close to it.

Right now I've got a '99 stratus all beat up outside with cancer clear coat flaking off but I just had them replace the manifold gasket and this thing drives like new. Excellent compression, brakes and trans so what if it look like a poster child for skin cancer. Gets over 20mpg which beats a whole lot of new cars even today.

one other thing about these DSL cameras. The old 35mm lenses share the same mount as the modern DSL but there are differences, and there are two sizes of DSL sensor, one of which is nearly 35mm sized.

FX/DX DSL and 35mm film, but you can still put a 35mm lens on the DSL, but the DSL (small format) lens won't cover the full 35mm frame. And, at the moment, I can't remember which is which. But you will have trouble finding someone to develop your 35mm film anyway.

So just use your iPhone, its something like twenty megapixels and has a ton of post-production software apps.

The Corps does have older aircraft, or at least they did 12 years ago when I retired. The oldest Navy jets that still deployed regularly were lot 10's (WHO said Sunliners???) but the Corps still flew lot 6's. I don't know if they were trapped out or not. We also had a crew rebuilding lot 4's and 5's for foreign sales, they had been retired because they were trapped out.

670 Well, there's a thing about showing cars. I'm not trying to recreate my youth. Frankly my youth was nothing to make B-movies about anyway. I was ten years old when my car was introduced. What's going to happen to all the beautiful cars of the Brass Era, for instance, now that there's no one to recreate their youth in them? There has to be more to the hobby than that.

I will say, if you go to hot-rod shows, it's all been about the rat rods for a decade or so now, lot of go and not so much show, and I can appreciate the historicity of that. It maybe bothers me a little to see guys buy a well-finished part and slap-dash flat black over it to make it funky, but there you go.

Of course now if you are buying a vintage Mustang you are paying top dollar for them, no matter what shape they are in (except for the 74-78 models). When I was starting to drive (never you mind how long ago that was) a late 60's-early 70's Stang in driveable shape could be had for under five bills, same for the Camaros and Firebirds. Same car today, a couple of grand, easy. Of course then they were only a couple of decades old, but a Fox body Mustang today still runs a couple of grand unless you get one with a 4 cylinder that is pretty well trashed out.


Of course back then the definition of "driveable" was negotiable...

yep, it's basically the subject being occluded by the edge of the eyepiece barrel (if we're talking about the same thing, the cut-off on the left). I wasn't actually looking at the preview for the most part, just holding the phone and looking at it from below, trying to center the bright projection of the lunar image onto the little lens, then peeking up to trip the shutter when the AF calmed down.

It was a stupid amount of work, but the actual view through the scope was so amazing that I really want to at least get my feet wet in astrophotography. It's really disheartening to see Saturn's rings and Jupiter & 3 of its moons and know that the only picture you can take of it would look like the inside of your pocket

Or was surrounded by metal.

I still say it's hysteresis losses due to the surrounding ship that is causing interference or lack of expected power on launch.

Unpredictability is a no no for a cat launch. In fact they won't certify a cat that isn't within a certain range. (obviously or bad things could happen)

I don't see how they could possibly have duplicated the shipboard environment on land. Some of you may not realize just how massive a Carrier is. Until you've seen one up close you can't conceive of how much metal has gone into one.

Jimmy Kimmel on Republicans Who No Longer Watch His Show: It's Not "Good Riddance, But Riddance"

Actually, this shouldn't be oversold too much -- he's not exactly saying he's happy to lose Republican viewers, but he does say he'd do it all over again "in a heartbeat" and also says he wouldn't even want to "have a conversation" with anyone bothered by his leftwing politicking:

"I don't say I don't mind," Kimmel said. "I want everyone with a television to watch the show, but if they're so turned off by my opinion on health care and gun violence, then... I probably wouldn't want to have a conversation with them anyway."

"Good riddance?" Smith asked.

"Well, not good riddance, but riddance," Kimmel said, laughing.

By the way, maybe worth a listen if you care about such things, but social psychologist Aydin Paladin (not her real name, because she's a conservative in academics) has an interesting YouTube essay about late night comics' attempt to spread an "emotional contagion" (of anti-Trump hysteria) for propaganda purposes.

She herself says that much of what she says (indeed, most of social psychology itself) is of a "No shit?" nature, in as much as it tells you, with rigorous definitions and survey evidence, what you already pretty much knew, but I think some of you may find it interesting to know why this sort of "emotional contagion" propaganda works.

Long story short: Someone (an entertainer, for example) creates goodwill in an audience and then uses ridicule or crying on camera to create an emotional response in the audience towards a target person or idea. Because people don't like the idea that any idea in their brains was inserted into their brains by someone else -- they don't like the idea of being manipulated or influenced by a third party-- people assume the contempt or anger they feel towards the target person or idea originated entirely within themselves, and is therefore their own belief.

Kind of like the idea of Inception -- the trick is not suggesting an idea to someone, which is easy (just speak the idea to them), but of making the person think they thought of that idea themselves, so they take pride of authorship in it.

There are limits to the effectiveness of this, of course. People only feel goodwill to the late night clowns because the clowns make them laugh (and making someone laugh is a good way to earn goodwill), and as they shift their priority from making people laugh to just straight-up political advertising, they loose the goodwill that makes their emotionally-based propaganda effective in the first place.

Also once someone realizes they're being "injected" with someone else's beliefs (and can no longer fool themselves into thinking they are solely responsible for those beliefs), people tend to react hostilely to the propaganda, and the "boomerang effect" actually pushes them in the exact opposite direction. She talks about that effect, called "reactance" (rebellion against attempts to control you) here.

Refreshing!

You're on TV, dipshit. You don't have conversations with anyone in your audience.

The nu-age leftist definition of conversation is a monologue anyway. So he fits right in.

58 When it's all said and done, I think you could define 'conservative' as 'one who cannot be manipulated by media agitprop'.

There are some people who cannot be hypnotized.

Same thing.

59 Apparently Seth Meyers has been saying the same thing, declaring that he was "inspired" by Eminem's song and wants Trump supporters to "go away."

Everyone in the country was heard to say "who the hell is Seth Meyers?"

First time I ever drove a car, there was about 4 feet of snow on the ground (grew up in NE NY). Of course, that was 50 years ago, lol. Good suggestion, though! I have pretty new tires and hoping it's not a super snowy winter, they say you can never tell in Indy.

I watched Letterman when he first started but he was never really very funny and his interviews were almost always uncomfortable. I stopped watching him after a few months and never bothered with any of the other late shows.

Most baseball players still come from rural areas. You can tell the difference in sports, the NFL coverage avoids even showing the national anthem now.

Actually everything I've heard about Kimmel is he is a very nice guy . No rage. He is just very misinformed and corrupted by his Hollywood life. He should have stayed closer to Carolla.

Posted by: Time right before Mad Max at October 16, 2017 07:59 PM (Uysai)

64 Kimmel had no problem being the "conscience of the nation" when he could just use it to go after Republicans. But expecting him to go after Hollywood and he's all "don't call me that."

Posted by: Buzzion at October 16, 2017 07:59 PM (z/Ubi)

65 Peaches -- I was just wondering something about your big move. Did you
always live in Cali? Have you ever driven in snow? I took my Cali born
and raised niece out to an empty frozen parking lot a couple winters ago
so she could get a feel for driving in the Midwest winter. If you've
never done it, I suggest the same.

Yes. A friend of mine did that too when he got his licence so he could get used to recovering from skidding on ice.

Carolla always struck me as a utilitarian libertarian if anything. Kimmel being far left does not really surprise me. I just find it hilarious that a co-host of the Man Show is now lecturing me on feminist SJW sensibilities.

The last 2 or 3 winters have been very mild...although there was an ice storm or 2 last year.

85 Purple ribbon is "anti bullying" which is basically "don't say anything homosexuals don't like to hear" sponsored by GLAAD.

Being opposed to bullying is kind of retarded. Its like being opposed to burning infants alive. Really? What other bold stance will you take? Opposed to eating living kittens?

89 I said "good riddance" to Kimmel several years ago. He's obnoxious and unfunny. And I recently said bye to Fallon because he got too political too. I didn't watch either very often mainly because I don't know who three quarters of their guests are. That is on me for not keeping up with the current crop of stars and starlets.

Posted by: Bill R. at October 16, 2017 08:06 PM (IuYIh)

90 Of course, this sort of thing goes the other way too.

Not being critical, but Ace, you get that effect here. There's a buy-in that already exists, and those of us who have bought in, we're more inclined to agree with you.

That's just how it goes.

Yeah, this is one of those "duh" things. Like when you meet a pretty girl, and she says she really likes french cinema. Well, you're more inclined to like it, even though you know nothing of it, until you go see a french film. Then you're like "wow, where has this been all my life. I love it!"

But do you?

Do you reaaaaallllly?

So yeah, that's the simple point: If you want someone to go along with your idea (and think it was their own, sort of), get them to like you first.

Easy peasy.

Posted by: BurtTC at October 16, 2017 08:06 PM (Pz4pT)

91 No, they all do this. I posted about looking up some knitting techniques on something called Tech Knit. Nothing political until a post on the recent election. She told Trump supporters that they should not look at her blog. It's so incredibly pretentious. Do they think they are the only people that have this information? Does Kimmel think he is the only one that can entertain people? Maybe we should start calling them out as bigots, because that is what they are.

Yeah it's manipulation. Crazy ex - types have turned it into a science.

Gaslighting, hypocrisy and flat out lies.

If they can get you to question your own morality, convictions or even sanity, they have won.

When they don't have an army , this is how totalitarians control and dominate their subjects.

Some people are born unhappy because they are not ordering other people around. They spend their entire lives rectifying that perceived "inequity".
