Pictures Released of Al "Fondles" Franken Groping Arianna Huffington in a Photoshoot

Remember when these two nothings were doing a high-larious sketch called "Strange Bedfellows" as they showed that people from different sides of the aisle could get along? Except of course they weren't from different sides of the aisle; Franken was a loud and boorish liberal, and Arianna Huffington was ending her pretending-to-be-a-conservative phase and being more honest about her progressivism too.

Anyway, these pics date from about that era. "Fondles" Franken again seems to think it's pretty funny to grope a woman in a picture.

Arianna Huffington is defending "Fondles" Franken just like she ran defense for another one of her progressive darlings, an editor who had multiple sexual harassment allegations against him.

[H]er history with a former managing editor whose "transfer" to launch HuffPost India was later revealed to be result of an HR investigation into whether he had sexually harassed multiple young women in the New York office. Gizmodo recently revisited those allegations and not only independently confirmed that the investigation was indeed the reason for that managing editorís transfer, but that Huffington knew about his actions before they were reported to HR, according to a former employee with direct knowledge of the investigation.

11 So Ariana is the male Bill Kristol then?

Remember, Huffington is from Greece and so was probably used to grabby-grabby.

Also, her husband was gay, so she appreciated a little male attention for a change.

Aren't they saying it was probably posted by one of his old girlfriends as revenge porn, and so she could be prosecuted? I don't know why he resigned, except out of embarrassment and humiliation. he's no Adonis. I certainly don't want to see him nude. Maybe his old girlfriend talked him into in it by flattering his ego and then kept it when they broke up to get back at him.

69 she's laughing when Franken gropes her in the bed pic ... but that doesn't mean it was "mutual" or wanted. Same with the one in Minnesota ... she is smiling.

But it is an unexpected thing and a slap or punch is probably the right thing, but sometimes laughing it off is much easier. There should be a few indicators and some time leading up to more intimate contact. Not ... "Smile .Oh surprise, I'm groping"

But "punch a Nazi" ... well that is different. Can't have conservatives just running around free, talking and shit.

80 WHERE IS THE JOE BARTON DICK PIC???

As you may have heard, a Republican congressman is embarrassed by a dick pic making the rounds:

https://www.texastribune.org/2017/11/22/ us-rep-joe-barton-deciding-how-respond-after-graphic-photo-circulates-/

However, unlike Anthony Weiner, he was an adult, separated from his wife, filed for divorce, having a few flings with other adult women -- so he did nothing wrong:

"U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, released a statement on Wednesday apologizing for a graphic nude photo of him that circulated on social media earlier this week.

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women," he said. "Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days."


To complete the tory, we NEED to see the dick pic itself -- but for some reason, I can't find it anywhere online. Anyone have a link for it? Morbid curiosity compels me!

Its a common joke for tv and movies. And to go all Ben Roethlesberger the joke is always the the guy is doing something and its an accidental grope, like his arms go out and the girl walks into his hands at just the right spot. And the guy knows its an accident and the audience knows its an accident and the girl slaps the guy because she thinks it was intentional. And the laughs ensue.

89 This afternoon I was in the car and listened to about ten minutes of the idiot who follows Rush on our local AM station. Guy Gordon, who was a weatherman for years in the Detroit metro area, now has a radio show on 760 am.

He was talking about John Conyers" payout for sexual harassment which Conyers says was a normal severance. ( Everyone who works as a clerk gets $27,000 for one year of work before they are fired, right?) Gordon and the Detroit Free Press want Conyers to resign. Ok.

Then he starts up with daring the Republicans to ask voters in Alabama to write in Luther Strange instead of Roy Moore, because it is the only right thing to do because of "all the allegations" against Moore.

A caller was livid about taxpayer money being used for Conyers to pay off his clerk and keep her quiet. Gordon then went on to ask the caller if Roy Moore should step down because...
And here's where I about drove off the road . Gordon claimed Moore has 8 women that have accused him of doing "horrible things to them" He conceded after the caller protested about the yearbook fake signature that Gloria Allred's client was possibly "not credible", but the 14 year old is still very credible. And that there have been numerous people come forward to corroborate her story, and also that Moore was under surveillance in the mall because he was a well known creepy guy.

You go from Rush to this. It is an ABC station, so I don't know what I expect....

The one thing I've learned (and have been told specifically by my wife) is that, if a woman is giving you a full-on frontal hug, she's fine with you knowing she's pressing her breasts against you. Full stop. And that's all. It doesn't have anything necessarily sexual about it, but it's a compliment because the womenses don't accidentally put those babies just anywhere.

Same with cleavage. If they're showing it, they know they're showing it and you should feel flattered. Nothing more, nothing less. But they're aware of what's going on with those suckers.

Thanksgivingmanship, Reposted

Reposted Yet Again. This is once again a thing, as progressives talk up how they're going to inflict their lunacies on the rest of their families on a day that is dedicated to gratitude, not grievance.






Some other people just turned it into Thanksgrivance Day, like Joy Reid:



Frequent James Comey marionette Ben Wittes is also in the mood for pills and razor blades:



He's one X chromosome and 30 years away from chopping off one side of his hair and dying the rest of it blue.

Below, the repost on how to deal with these deeply damaged bits of once-human debris:

Thanksgivingship: How To Survive Your Dull-Witted Progressive Adultchildren Relatives Who've Been Reading Vox and Buzzfeed Articles About How to Survive You

Oxford Don Stephen Potter introduced the world to the principles of Gamesmanship [don't comment on old posts, the system will ban you] the way to win at games by resort to cheap ploys which were very close to cheating without being technically cheating. He later expanded his inquiries into the general field of "Lifemanship," the discipline of embracing life in a dickish and hostile spirit, sabotaging social rivals without quite breaching social etiquette.

Given that the progressive elder-children-yet-not-quite-adults you'll be encountering this Thanksgiving (who I will henceforth refer to as "grownchildren") will be armed to the teeth with Vox explainers and Obamacare propaganda, I herewith humbly submit these first sketches of a new branch of Lifemanship I call "Thankgivingmanship," which I define as the gentle art of insulting the stupid without alerting them to the fact that they've been insulted at all.

It is the goal of the dedicated Thanksgivingman, then, to achieve the sublime art of giving offense without offense being taken.

My basic strategy is thus: It would be as rude of you as it is rude of your cretinous grownchildren kin to allow a Thanksgiving dinner into a stupid game of Rachel Maddow Talking Points and their rebuttals.

So, rather than confront the unemployed idiots who will be assailing you, I propose instead to superficially avoid conflict and engagement on their dummy mouthflappings, and appear instead to agree with them.

But -- and here is the point -- a skilled Thanksgivingman will only appear to agree with the grownchildren to feeble intellects, such as those possessed by the grownchildren themselves. Instead of disagreeing with them -- which will cause argument and anger -- you will instead claim to agree with them, while in fact contradicting them, subverting them, of baffling them with statements that nearly, but do not quite, make sense.

Our definitions and mission now established, we turn to the first of our three primary Thanksgivingmanship gambits:

The Neutral or Nonsensical Statement Disguised as Agreement.Progressives do not process language the same way human beings do; they chiefly adduce meaning from tone and body language, like dogs.

This means that you can say many things which are either irrelevant, nonsensical, or otherwise not in agreement with the progressive subcreatures you're temporarily amidst so long as you deliver your words with a warm smile and a lot of nodding.

You may also use uptalk to express an insincere solidarity. As with dogs and babies, progressives find artificially high-pitched vocal tones to be soothing and possibly a prelude to Walkies and Snackies.

Whenever a progressive grownchild says something stupid and ignorant, which will be always, do not engage on the merits. Progressive grownchildren will become highly emotional and agitated at the slightest show of disagreement, and may wet the floor or claw at the furniture.

Instead, say something which is either neutral or nonsensical (which successfully communicates your true beliefs to other real human beings capable of deciphering obvious meaning) while deploying smiling, nodding, and uptalk to falsely convey agreement with to the more-stunted intellect of the grownchild.

For example, if a progressive grownchild says, "Rachel Maddow is just so amazing," you can respond by nodding and saying "Absolutely, Rachel Maddow is without doubt a mammal." (Or: "A mammal...?")

Possible responses to common grownchild mouthchatter include:

"Well I see that the 'Faux Noise Machice' has gotten everyone riled up about so-called 'terrorism' again."

"Doubtless! Terrorists only win when allow them to make us afraid, or dead." (Or: "Afraid, or dead...?")

"Can't people see that stupid cons are doing Just What ISIS Wants us to do?"

"It's so obvious-- the attacks in Paris weren't just an attack on human lives. They were an attack on our shared human capacity to be alive." ("To be alive, and stuff...?")

This is a very simple one, which can be deployed in a variety of contexts:

"None of this is Obama's fault -- he's doing the best he can to keep America out of another War of Choice."

"Boy that Obama-- he is really something, isn't he?"

As the evening wears on, and you are preparing to depart, you may become somewhat more blatant in your stealth insults, like so:

"I just read an explainer about this on Vox."

"Today's world is so remarkable! When I was young, we had to read books and derive our own thinking for ourselves. What a time to be alive, when sounding vaguely informed is no longer a luxury of the intellectual, but a cheaply assembled ware available to those of more common intellect!"

Fake Statistics. It was my old friend Boston Irish who alerted me to this ticklish little trope, when he observed that no matter how absurd the statistic you proposed to a progressive, if that statistic seemed to call attention to whatever bugaboos xhe was excited about, xhe would respond with a gushing "I know, right?!"

He demonstrated this to me at a party by interrupting a couple of liberals talking, and announcing to them:

"You know, based on current statistics, in ten years, the entire state of California will be homeless."

"Right! I know!" came the response.

By the way, that is not schtick. That is not a joke written for this blogpost. I was really there, he really said that, that really happened.

After having secured the agreement to his obviously-crank "statistics," he turned to me with a slightly arched eyebrow and sipped his beer in quiet triumph.

This propensity of grownchildren to agree to whatever fantastical "studies" and "statistics" you propose to them can be exploited for much private merriment at the holidays.

Other gambits include:

* "You know, the average family of four pays more in ATM fees to the Big Banksters than they spend on rent."

* "By the year 2030, global warming predicts that the entire North American landmass will be flooded by seawater and wolves."

* "99.4% of the world's wealth is controlled by six-tenths of a single person."

* "More people are killed every year by shooting accidentally shooting themselves than who died in all the wars in the world combined, except for the Korean War."

You need to throw that "Except for the Korean War" in at the end because the claim, on its face, is too preposterous, so you deduct out Korean War deaths to bring it into the real of the plausible. (Plausible, that is, for progressive grownchildren.) It makes like you've done the math and just have to make this one little adjustment to get the numbers to work.

You may follow Boston Irish's trope of the obviously-crank "liberal study" claim, or you can try your hand at claims which are simply baffling nonsense:

* "Studies have proven that if you have a gun in your house, you are more in danger of being struck by lightning than being bitten by a rattlesnake. Think about it."

A minor variation of the Fake Statistic ploy is the Fake Profundity gambit, in which you propose some ludicrous "deep thought" which derives not from social science, but from your own personal philosophical inquiry.

For example, this one is best delivered with chin uplifted, Obama-style, and a metaphysical glaze of the eye:

* "For what is it that gives the terrorists power -- their weapons, or our primitive, irrational fear that they will kill us with their weapons?"

It is generally a useful practice to prefix such bits of nonsense with faux-biblical language, such as "For what..." or "Lo" and "Thus and so."

Fake Quotes. Progressives love fake quotes -- they just love dressing up whatever passes for this week's SJW Conventional Wisdom and attributing it to some historic figure.

Generally, these historic figures are very well known, because progressives don't know any historic figures except the very well known. Thomas Jefferson is always a popular choice. For "bad sounding quotes," Hitler is preferred. Napoleon and Marcus Aurelius may be deployed as well, but be prepared for some confused looks as to who it is you're talking about.

Offering a ridiculous quote can bring you and any other lively minds at the table great amusement. Your target will probably not notice the quote is fake, because he is an imbecile, and also because you'll have a serene, self-satisfied smile on your face as you say it, which he will read as "A Fellow Progressive in Discursive Mode."

This minor camouflage will permit you to smuggle huge amounts of nonsense in the guise of Wisdom of the Ancients.

Feel free to subvert your noddingsmiles with messages that are blatantly mottos of the NRA, if only the grownchild could understand simple words, which they cannot.

For example:

"Wasn't it Mahatma Gandhi who said, 'It is not necessarily the first man to shoot who wins the battle, but it is always the last man shooting who wins the day'?"

"As Gertrude Stein said" -- and I should say here that this gambit works best when you pronounce this name, for no particular reason, in an outrageous German accent, as Gaertruude Schteinn.

So, let's begin again: "As Gaertruude Schteinn observed, 'The man who is slowest to arm himself is quickest to savor the bounties of Heaven.'"

Another gambit is to offer up the following quotes, which are applicable in a wide range of situations.

"I forget which scientist said it, maybe Neil DeGrasse Tyson, but it's worth repeating: 'Wars of religion always make me laugh because basically you're fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.'"

Or:

"A great philosopher, Gaertruud Von Schteinn, once said, 'Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true'?"

You will get big nods for these Aphorisms of the Sages. You yourself can take pleasure in the knowledge that both quotes are from the movie Point Break, delivered by Johnny Utah (Keanu Reaves) and Bodhi (Patrick Swayze), respectively.

If you get any verbal expressions of agreement, a "hear-hear" or an "amen," you can extend the joke by saying, "In the words of the spiritual master Boddhisatva, 'You can do what you want, and make up your own rules. Why be a servant to the law, when you can be its master...?" or "Six seconds and we're going to be meat waffles.'"

Make this trope your own. Have fun with it. If you want to claim that it was Niccolo Machiavelli who first advised, "Sweep the leg, Johnny," go with it, but try to get your more subtle Fake Quotes in before "going big" like that.

A Final Word. At some point, even an experienced Thanksgivingman will go too far, and give his game away. At that point, there will be sulks and silences, and the Thanksgivingman will have actually failed at his goal, which is to give offense without offense being taken.

In such straits, the Thanksgivingman, in order to be the polite person he wishes to be, will have to apologize -- it is the verminous grownchildren who have come to bicker and strife, after all, not the well-mannered Thankgivingman.

However, for the zealous Thanksgivingman, even an apology can be exploited for further Thanksgivingmanship points.

For example, if the childanimal you are speaking with declares:

"You're micro-aggressing me."

...then be sure to respond,

"Ah, then please sincerely accept my most micro apologies."

6 (nearly willowed) OT tech question:

I'm planning on getting a ps4 this weekend
(gamestop is running the same deal as everyone else knocking the price
down to $199 which is frankly where consoles ought to be, but also
giving out $50 gift cards according to the ad I got Monday). Does anyone
have an opinion on the $10 stand so you can set it on it's side?

It
obviously takes less shelf space that way, and I'm hoping that puts the
vents far enough from the supporting surface to discourage dust
accumulation, but I wonder about the physics/engineering of rotating the
disc at that angle, i.e. if I'm taking a risk of added wear and tear
from the position?

So - no Thanksgiving arguments here. I am grateful for that.

Posted by: grammie winger - thankful at November 22, 2017 03:41 PM (lwiT4)

21 >>> I'm not thankful this year and I'm not going to pretend to be. I'm defiant. If the Pilgrims had come all this way to find on our shores America's current domestic politics, they would have vomited all the food at the first Thanksgiving dinner.

Hmmm, I thought that the Pilgrims came here because the European elites kept dictating to them how to live their lives, and they got fed up. Seems like we are keeping the tradition of proper defiance alive and well just fine!

Actually, a good many of them died the first year because of disease and the rest of them likely would have starved had some of the local Indians not shown them how to plant corn and fish.

The first Thanksgiving was really more of a traditional European thanks for the bounty of the crops. Some of the local Indians who had helped them were invited and the story was born.

The colony broke down because many of the Pilgrims chaffed at the collectivist rules and lack of the same religious freedom that caused them to leave England in the first place.

Lots of myths about the pilgrims and Thanksgiving including Plymouth Rock which was not the first place the pilgrims came ashore.

the rest of them likely would have starved had some of the local
Indians not shown them how to plant corn and fish.

Well it was a combination of several things.
1) Many of them were not farmers, they were merchants, clerks, etc. So farming wasn't exactly well known to them
2) Moving to a new area you will not necessarily know what will grow or what the growing season is, etc.
3) they brought seeds and so forth, but a lot spoiled on the way, and they didn't know what was edible and what was not in the new world.

Yeah. Organic gardeners use fish emulsion but I guess that's all small scale stuff. Which reminds me of an old article about Rand Paul, which I saw after he was attacked. Awhile back he and his wife had done a interview about how they like to compost, and use fish emulsion on their vegetables. Lefties were making fun of them in the comments, I guess because organic gardening is good, but only if done by people with communist leanings. I'll never get this way of "thinking".

According to Of Plymouth Plantation they were mainly farmers. It sounds like the soil quality was very different from what they were used to though, Bradford described it as "exhausted" which seems odd unless it was very nutrient poor to begin with. They also weren't accustomed to maize as a food crop and kept trying the grains they were used to. Bradford said that after they allowed people to work their own plots, and trade any excess, they never starved again.

It just seems... excessively picky. Yeah I don't want to be hugged necessarily at work but that doesn't rise to the same level of awful as groping or wanking in front of someone, much less worse crimes.

I worked at a convenience store once and the manager who I knew from school kept giving me shoulder rubs while I was at the cash register. It wasn't some come-on, I think it was meant to be chummy, etc (trust me, she didn't like me that way at all). But I didn't like it, not because it was creepy but keep your hands off me while we're at work for crying out loud.

But what I didn't consider it to be was sexual harassment. Not worth reporting to the company, not anything to get upset about.

I'd bet only 10% would know and only because it's one that could be guessed.

286 If you want to drive these assholes crazy (and who doesn't) keep shifting the topic based, sort of, on what they said. Start with phrases like: "That reminds me of" or "You know, that brings to mind". Then launch into some esoteric minutiae about Lord of the Rings, Travels With Charley, or anything they are unlikely to have read. Make it something you care about and can expound on for hours. If they interrupt with another BS point, repeat the procedure with another outre matter.

The beauty of this is that there need be no actual connection between their words and your topic.

Of course, if they actually show up with Fucky Schumer's graphs and tables, you get to shove it up their ass after folding it so it is all sharp corners.

298 My siblings and family mostly need saving, from the Dem PC world of global warming and hate for deplorables ... I just don't have the energy, and they'd flip back in a week anyway, on any point I managed to make.

The main thing those reunions do is reveal how thoroughly the commie left has been in infiltrating the minds of the average American. Generally the blue collar have the better grip on reality, which is how we got Trump maybe.

But the eyes glaze over even for the best of them, if the debt bomb and fiat currency comes up ... or Uranium One and hard drives wiped like with a cloth. Blissful ignorance is more fun.

I'm glad we won the west (saw "How the West was Won" at the drive in decades back), All in all, Indians were not such advanced or polite peoples, except when they came for Thanksgiving Dinner.

The past few years have, for me, been a race to the bottle of Jack and never letting go until the Turkey hits the table. Conversations? Nothing past the weather and football, and pro football is off limits this year, of course.

So it is just the "is Alabama really a true number one" conversations, and they get boring.

The only down side to this new strategy is that I have to cut back on the Jack, in order to complete my sentences.

I'll give it a year and see how it goes.

302 My favorite is starting with "not a lot of people know this...." 60% of the time it works every time. Also add in the words "true fact" at the end. For example:

"Not a lot of people know this, but 86% of homeless people can't make their mortgage pavements. True fact."

"Not a lot of people know this, but Neal Degrasse Tyson once bit off a man's ear. True fact."

It really helps if you manage to slip in the word "stadistics".

"Stadistics say by the year 2050, over half the world's population will be pregnant if we don't supply some free birth control. True fact."

If they call you on mispronunciation, deny it vehemently. A really classy move is to accuse them of racism/sexism/classism.

Some Prominent "NeverTrumpers" Take Sharp Left Turn and Become NeverGOPers

Bret Stephens, Jen Rubin, and Bill Kristol have never been real conservatives, but have felt the need to pretend (slightly) so they could occupy positions of influence in a movement they were never actually a part of.

Now they're liberated to show their true liberal stripes.






Those are just some tweets illustrating this, but June Kelly's piece about the Dropping of the Masks is worth reading.

No, that's not it precisely. I, too, was completely opposed to Trump. However, unlike them, I'm willing to admit that I was wrong, not because he didn't act the buffoon while campaigning, because he did, but because his actual performance as President is far better than I'd dared to hope.

Also, I actually believe the things I say. I'm not just saying the for a paycheck.

because its been uniparty for decades.

Trump isn't in uniparty. He's doing what he logically thinks is the right thing. Logic tends toward the conservative. Ergo a fairly conservative president. As long as he doesn't listen to the non logical people who are advising him (and you know who they are) he'll do a great job. Transformational in fact. He can't help but be transformation given the absolute trainwreck that Washington is now. The question is will it be enough.

There are a few exceptions. Greg Gutfeld was very anti-Trump but has really come around, admitted he was largely wrong, still hits Trump where he feels Trump deserves it (Gutfeld's no fan of the tax plan) which is fair.

And Katie Pavlich, one of the actual NRO anti-Trump issue squad members has also largely mea culpa'd.

131 There's an article from months ago called "Killing the Gods of the City" that I linked a few times when people were freaking out. It's bottom line - it is gonna be really messy & crazy.

People do not relinquish power easily.

But there are so many moving parts right now, some that have affected politics that people did not see coming, and they were blind-sided by it. Like the avalanche of sexual assualts cases committed by mostly democratic men in elite positions.

That was done by the people for the people. Decades of cover ups exposed by Ronan Farrow was the beginning. Networks and other dems all over the place knew about this stuff and did nothing.

Anyway, that has done more to injure them than anything politics could throw...b/c it wasn't political. And that is why it is so harmful.

But there are so many moving parts right now in the country, and now we can add another based on the tweets. And there are more that we have no idea about.

Before I forget, thank you to those who pray about this country. There are supernatural forces at work I do not understand, but believe in. And when something goes well, or evil is exposed, they do not get enough credit for their role.

138 On the Roy Moore saga, I just read that Breitbart piece on the Leigh Corfman accusation. She is the one who claims she and her mother met Moore at the courthouse in 1979 when she was 14, and he subsequently asked her out and felt her up.

The Breitbart reporter went through the court records and reported that the custody hearing was on Feb. 21, and that Corfman was supposed to move out of her mother's house and into her father's house in something like 10 days, which the reporter pointed out didn't give Moore much time for the phone calls and the two dates and whatnot that Corfman says Moore did.

But what's curious about that story is that court documents show that the parents had agreed to the custody switch, apparently because Leigh Corfman had been a behavioral problem at the mother's house and the parents thought she'd settle down if she went to live with the father. The article said both parents signed the consent decree switching custody over to the father.

Given that both parents wanted the custody switch and it was being done by consent of both parents, there couldn't have been much to the custody hearing. So why then did Corfman's mother agree to let Roy Moore babysit her daughter in the courthouse hallway? Corfman said that her mother didn't want her to come into the hearing room with her because she didn't want her daughter to hear the acrimonious testimony -- but there is unlikely to have been any testimony that would have upset Corfman, given that both parents wanted the custody switch to happen and the hearing was probably just a pro forma rubber-stamping of the agreement.

So that part of Corfman's story really doesn't make sense. Also, Corfman claims that the Roy Moore fondling incident was the start of all her behavioral problems. But that is clearly not true, as the custody documents indicate that she was already having behavioral problems before she even met Moore at the custody hearing, which is why the parents were switching custody in the first place. So why is Corfman lying about that?

No, not like they have been since his election.

I told my buddy that people like Jeb, McMuffin man, Kristol etc..etc..etc people would be voting for Hillary in the election and he was like naaa, they will write in a name or just not check a box.
I think he see's clearly now that they did in fact vote for Hillary.

This is what infuriates me. If you or I behaved this way and we were sued -we are the ones financially responsible. As it should be for them too. For them to use US taxpayer dollars as a slush fund to pay for their indiscretions, they now have zero consequences for their actions. What is another several hundred thousand dollars in payouts with a $4 trillion dollar budget?

194 Common good. So, let's just say the teacher in your kids' school is a really swell teacher. Tops in the county. Awesome instructor.


There are 30 kids in the class. One of them is Matthew's. Teacher molests that particular kid. But he didn't molest the other 29, just yours. So - do we let it go for the greater good? What say you, Matt? If that indeed is your real name.

By his logic, since the second group "could care less about the common good", that means that they do care about the common good to some degree.

However, if the first group is the opposite of the second group, then the first group would be described as "they could NOT care less about the common good", which means they do not care about the common good to any degree.

I'd like to point out that the sadist, rapist and torturer Lavrentiy Beria was on the verge of liberalizing the post Stalin soviet economy when a Kruschev and a few Red Army Generals who had had a taste of his common fucking good grabbed him and shot him without trial. Nobody complained about that, and nobody should have.

And he fucking begged for his life at the end.

fucking common good. If you believe this shit you're a moron and an asswipe.

Their values are entirely conditional, and all that matters is achieving the end--aka, POWER.

'Who
cares if women get raped, if we get the power? We only should care if
women get raped by people who DON'T give us the power.'

The only real value they hold, the only non-negotiable, is POWER.

As I noted earlier, this could be - could be - part of a whirlwind unseen in American politics not seen in our lifetimes, to include Vietnam or Watergate.


And what about the NFL continuing to show their lack of concern about this year's meltdown by (apparently) discussing, essentially, cancelling the national anthem at games starting next year, by keeping the squads in the locker rooms?


I still think the NFL needs a spectacular, and particularly odious, case of criminal behavior - best would be sexual assault, natch - this season. Or maybe an accessory to homicide case. Not enough anchors around the neck of that s**t-show.

298 First they tried argument, and they failed because it was uncovered as sophism.

Then they went stealth and hide their endgame.

After that They took over governments and the courts. They obfuscated the law and undermined the constitution.

They saw it was working and felt they had enough momentum to keep it going. Obama, Hillary and Bernie opened the kimono. They went full socialist and communist.

It failed miserably.

Now they want to put the genie back in the bottle. But that won't work. So they're not even hiding their contempt for the average person. They keep trying to divide us.

But it won't work because people like Dowd are going to be crushed.

398 the greater good "right to rape" clause is rather common for power figures, but most don't believe it is a real excuse. They have power and ability and are bad people, so they use the power for their lusts and greed.

The "flaws and greater good" argument only comes out when they are facing punishment. They'll dab their eye with pepper to produce tears if that helps their cause. None of them belong in leadership, if they can't control their animal instincts.

Alpha males that go all rapey must be controlled (imprisoned if need be) by alpha males that are leaders (who respect those they "lead").

Court Documents: Fusion GPS Made Payments To Three Journalists From 2016 to 2017

If you're going to work for the left anyway, you might as well get paid, right?

The revelation could be a breakthrough for House Republicans, who are exploring whether Fusion GPS used the dossier, which was later criticized for having inaccurate information on Trump, to feed anti-Trump stories to the press during and after the presidential campaign. The three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS are known to have reported on "Russia issues relevant to [the committee's] investigation," the House Intelligence Committee said in a court filing.

But the recipients' names, the amounts, and purposes of those payments were either redacted from the documents that Fusion GPS filed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia or were not disclosed.

Fusion has asked the court to issue a restraining order against the House committee, which is demanding documents from the company that, among other things, explain the payments it made to reporters. Most of the documents sought are banking records.

35 I know it is fun to pick on Fusion GPS and the left for such things we suspected they do - plant stories, quid pro quo - but we should also rightfully suspect that the uniparty GOPe is doing the same, as against their insurgents, the Tea Party, Trumpkins, etc.

The attempted Moore takeout has all the hallmarks of a GOPe clusterfuck as much as dem fingerprints. There was some recent story by a friendly to GOPe outlet that had the AL primary loser attempting to distance and absolve himself of any wrongdoing. And we all know the details about the Jeb!/Rubio operatives shopping pussygate before it was released. I suspect the reason that Lerner is not rotting in a cell is because the GOPe was complicit.

Imagine it's 1973 and during the Watergate hearings it is revealed that the "burglars" who broke into Dem offices at the Watergate apartments turned out to be Democratic party operatives on the Dem payroll, and they only committed the break-in to frame Nixon.

That's basically what's happening here as the "Russiagate" scandal unfurls -- there IS a scandal, but it's the exact opposite of what we were lead to believe! The accusers are the villains!

157 "Inaccurate information."


Aka lies. Each of which sprung from a singular mind. When something real is investigated the investigation will spread out to multiple sources each having direct knowledge of the event being looked at. A lie will funnel back to a singular source.

Whoever made up the lies that became the Steele dossier funneled them through Steele who said he had sources A to E for the information. He also said he paid no money to them for this information.

http://tinyurl.com/y8ww9llk

Maybe the Russians gave false information to Steele who then did no footwork to try to verify it but accepted it at face value. Maybe, as is my own view, Steele was only used and paid to be the credible face of false stories written by others who wanted them planted in the media and in the Obama DOJ and IC.

That Steele was "ex" MI6 and that that agency could unmask any US person themselves from the same data pool that the US IC has but can't legally get at without a FISA okay is just a coincidence.

Fusion's whole existence is based on taking innocuous real things and mixing them with pernicious lies that tell the story their clients want told and then getting those stories fed into the MSM in someway that makes them look credible, believable. That's what was done with the "stories" that form the dossier.

Yeah. Because I can hit it on my lunch hour. Screw 'em. They lost two shotgun sales. I ordered them from Bud's over my phone on the drive back. Yeah, it cost a bit more, but they'll be sent to the transfer dealer a mile from the house.

.Buds was my gun store when we lived in Kentucky. I went there at least twice a week to use the range and browse. The usually have pretty good deals and gave us special prices for being Retired Navy. We got the LE prices on a lot of stuff.

Because those stripped lowers are a firearm according to BATF. Buying for someone else technically constitutes a straw purchase, which is illegal.

There was a Supreme Court case on this very issue.

Someone bought a relative a Glock using his Law Enforcement discount. Relative gives him a check to pay back, with Glock written in Check's memo field. Both people passed background checks and were perfectly legal to buy firearms. Did not matter.

Straw purchase. Go to jail. Go directly to jail.

Buy them and gift them. Wrap them up and publicly gift them.

298 So last night I saw that Black Feminist who quit Lenny's Letter (some Lena Dunham vehicle) is calling out all black women to turn against her.

Then discussing her hipster racism b/c of her college friends.

But then, ALL White women got thrown under the bus for taking credit for black women's writing...and that all white women should be...I don't know...shunned?

On the Twitter page there were Black women saying YES! White women apologizing for their privilege, and one lone soul going WTF? Re: All white women. She couldn't figure out how it went from Lena to all white women.

I thought...this is why I'm not on twitter.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

The only thing this puffed-up clown deserves is a big pile of poo thrown at him. Why do you people take him seriously?

If you need to be convinced of the fundamental unseriousness of the American media, look no farther than the recent CNN interview with LaVar Ball, a self-promoting buffoon who has nothing to say of any importance, but is more than willing to tout his sneakers and criticize the President.

LaVar Ball responds to Trump, wishes him a 'great Thanksgiving'

That was a 23-minute interview! To be fair to CNN, Don Lemon, their crack journalist was unavailable, so they dug Chris Cuomo out of the play room and threw him into the mix. You have to give credit to their makeup department too...there isn't a speck of paste on Cuomo's face, and the contents of his diaper are nowhere to be found on his suit.

******

And here we have Newsweek with some really important breaking news....
'Fake' Apollo Moon Landing Photo Claims to Show Proof the Mission Was a Hoax
At least the Weekly World News didn't pretend to be a serious news organization.
******

I hate to pick on Newsweek (that's a lie), but here is another moronic article that is also politically charged and offensive.
Don't Want to Feel Thankful? How to Have a Woke Thanksgiving and Wallow in Darkness This Year

Thanksgiving dinner conversations are notoriously difficult, and President Donald Trump’s first year in office hasn’t made it any easier: 58 percent of Americans “dread the thought of having to talk about politics at Thanksgiving dinner,” a new Marist poll shows, compared to 53 percent last year.

Media outlets have taken notice and are offering quick guidelines on how to best avoid stirring the pot on Turkey Day. But Thanksgiving offers a unique opportunity to civically engage with those closest to us. It’s the dirty work all democracies depend on. So, in an effort to promote thoughtful discussion, here’s Newsweek’s guide to having a conscious, or “woke”, Thanksgiving.


What the hell does that mean? "Civically engage?" Do they mean doing your civic duty, or is it bad writing and editing and do they really mean "civilly?"

This exposes one of the most unpleasant aspects of the progressive hive...they seem to internalize and take personally every political stance, and take it as a deeply emotional and personal affront if they are disagreed with.

What a bunch of party-poopers. They are pinch-faced scolds, and can't have the decency to shut the hell up even during festive family celebrations.

Indeed.

I agree with Trump's sentiment on these ungrateful losers, but hopefully this is a lesson on the value of photo ops and short term news cycles.

Also, he may want to ask himself if the people he tries to help are Trump haters and will they simply use it as a platform to grand stand, see the crazy war widow for another example.

The boys did WWII service uniforms. BIL started with bayonets. Then WWII battle rifles. He's working his way back. Springfield, Krag, Spencer, trapdoor. I told him to get on the stick and add some sidearms.

51 LaVar Ball has been pulling this shtick for years. He criticizes everyone and everything except himself and has a ginormous ego.

He's currently criticizing the Lakers coaches for not doing a good job with his son after spending years criticizing the UCLA coaches for not doing a good job with him. He's a twat waffle who believes any press is good press in the name of making money.

Paying attention to him is all he cares about. I decline.

64 I have always wondered just how awful of a family life these people have. I have never feared family conversation at Thanksgiving, even with members of the family that I may not be that fond of or those whom I disagree with politically.

First, we don't typically talk politics at the dinner table. Second, we all are able to have civil discussions. When someone does get riled up over a particular topic, we just walk away for a minute to cool off or change the topic to maintain a cordial air during a family holiday.

These folks writing about how awful Thanksgiving dinner conversation can be and how to maintain a civil discussion need to step back and reevaluate their interpersonal skills.

If you need someone to write you guide on how to engage with your family in civil and decent manner, you need are the one who has a serious problem, not your "evil" conservative family member.

124 Talking sense to liberals is the most wasteful use of one's time I can imagine.

They won't admit to being wrong even when they know it, why bother?

After winning plenty of arguments, only to watch the liberal involved refuse to admit the winning point and simply move on their next diatribe, I don't talk politics anymore.

Tell Xi to hold the players for a month or two (long enough to screw up their season and scare 'em good), then release them in a magnanimous gesture.


Trump then publicly says he has asked Xi to release them. Two months pass, then Xi makes his move. Trump has done what he could, the kids are out, the lesson applied.

If you read the original Washington Post story, you know it was rigorously reported, with great care and professionalism. Four women who did not seek out the press, who did not know each other, and who surely guessed going public would bring them nothing but grief, came forward and provided first-person details that established a pattern. Thirty people corroborated details. This is not attack journalism. It is great journalism.

283 When my liberal mother starts babbling on about Evil Trump I educate her-- then end the session with: It's not my fault you are a low information voter Mom, if you continue to watch CNN you'll become dumber by the day. I insult CNN every chance I get, then I expose their fake news which really upsets her. I did show her how to block CNN at the remote to ensure she educate herself without the Stasi telling her how to think. She rarely mentions Trump anymore, because I no longer take the abuse from her.

285 I agree with Trump's sentiment on these ungrateful
losers, but hopefully this is a lesson on the value of photo ops and
short term news cycles.



Also, he may want to ask himself if the people he tries to help are
Trump haters and will they simply use it as a platform to grand stand,
see the crazy war widow for another example.

Posted by: Maritime at November 22, 2017 11:41 AM (lKmt3)

I think this episode pays off bigly for Trump. He "rescues" an ungrateful "athlete" from China's jailers, and "athlete's" asshole father further beclowns himself. There's no downside for Trump in that, and the Trump haters are further marginalized. LaVar Ball reveals himself as an asshole, and all the Trump-haters wear virtual T-shirts that read: "I'm With Asshole".

Yeah, the Japs of the 1930s did shit that would make Josef Mengele puke. Not because of some soldiers running rampant, but as a matter of official government policy. Which is why I get pissed off from people whining about Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

But the righteous anger over what the Japanese did to China in the 30s-40s is separate from the overt hatred they've had for each other as sub-humans for centuries, long pre-dating the Hirohito-era atrocities.

I'm surprised more people haven't been outraged by this. The reporting on this was dogshit from the get go, particularly since Paul was in the group Hodgkinson attacked.

I've ridden in cars in China driven by Chinese.

Came close to having an accident several times.

Riding in a cab in Shanghai, the cab driver tried to wedge himself between two buses turning in an intersection, nearly killed all of us in the cab.

Surprised there aren't more people killed. Still not that many cars in China.
Currency: Yuan Reminbi (both words!!)

I found the Chinese to be pretty friendly (if they aren't in the government), especially if they are trying to sell you something.

Shanghai is a lot like NYC. Big city, always something happening.

78 The close up on the image shows a wonderful handling of the faces. He doesn't have that over-stylized thing going, each face is an individual.

I would ask if that was taken from a photo, but if it was, he redid it because even in the 1880s the film wasn't so fast to take a snapshot unposed.

That spray of leaves in the upper right corner is a nice touch in framing the scene too.

Looking briefly at the pics of the works at the wiki page, Kroyer was taken with portraying deep focus three dimensional depth in his work, and he loved that oblique angle used in this painting, and worked really well with very deep scenes.

It is possible to make decent pictures with a camera, but you need a good eye for composition to make a very good picture. I really don't have that skill, so I would play with very shallow focus to make what I wanted to stand out from the composition.
I used to have a girlfriend who had that eye for well composed deep shots, but couldn't figure out how to use a camera exactly. When we went for walks she would spot the shots and I would shoot them.

Surstromming -- take some fish pieces, put it in a can with some salt water. Seal can, but do not process with any heat. In a few months, when can is bulging but before the seams give up, open can and "enjoy".

Most airlines will not carry cans of surstromming because the internal pressure is enough to blow the cans open at altitude.

97 "Actually he is the one who is turning over all the
information that was held by the Obama administration. What is coming
out now is because the information is no longer being hidden.

It remains to be seen what he knew or didn't know and whether
Mueller told the complete truth to the Armed Services Committee or if he
withheld information. In any case, Congress had no power to stop this
deal it was all in the hands of the Obama administration.

Posted by: JackStraw

Listening to Tom Fitton with Judicial Watch (and the Hannity guests like Sara Carter) my impression is they have been delayed and have to sue for info that is kept hidden. They have denied things that are now exposed, and only then does some (limited) action happen, and that itself may be part of the slow walking.

It would be nice to believe otherwise, and Sara says they will have a "special team" (not Mueller) to investigate. But we have to see if it is "special coverup" or special like agents that complained about this the whole time but were overruled.

this is zero hedge, which sometimes takes a walk on the wild side, but this sums up the "Sessions/DoJ running interference" subject.

But yeah, you can make a great pate' or sausage out of liver and other organ meats and also out of hooves and snouts and ears and the squeak.

Wrong. That favor will have to be repaid, it was to the Office of the President - not to Trump - and thus all of us. The douchebag dad owes Trump and America a giant thank you.

He is pointing out the flaws in the left's narrative of constant hate and attack, even for simple things like getting these crooks out of a China jail. It is "Exhibit A" (in this case, Exhibit #5 million overall) ... that the left is trained to attack EVERYTHING Trump does.

If Trump doesn't make the point, the narrative over time wins. The father is being a jerk and dishonest. The left is trying to weasel out of that ... now they are down to ..."yes the Dad is an unthankful Trump hater, but Trump should be presidential and say nothing"

which lets the MFM set the narrative ... Trump tweets break their control, so now the narrative is to scold like a child, for not accepting their narrative of lies and hate. Sorry ... new rules ... fight fight fight ... like the left has done for decades.

205 I enjoy these domestic scenes that Scandinavian artists of this period do so well. The play of light is always appropriate to the scene. In this case the sunlight shining through the leaves brings out the shad they provide and is captured in the raised glasses, which keeps the focus on the celebratory nature of the painting. There is plenty of color but it doesn't overwhelm the feeling that Kroyer wants to portray. It is all very pleasant. I bet it was looked at with smiles and longing during those dark Danish winters.

I admit I like these domestic scenes that these Nordic artists do. Technically brilliant and ever pleasing to view. From our perspective it is a window onto the world before the cultural disasters of WW I and later in the 20th century.

304 Trump joked once about how vicious real estate could be, and that politics was even worse.

I don't think he wants to be loved, but he is at the top tier of power and the lies and deceit of the left are their main weapon at the moment. He probably hates that doing good things gets so viciously attacked ... but he has had the cocktail party types hate him before ... he seems to brush that off.

Lavar Ball is personifying the whole "ungrateful fool" thing, which is what the entitlement left in America has become. But (leftist) ESPN is the one that makes Ball a hero. Battle lines are drawn.

I think it started with people who didn't want to travel far over the holidays to be with family, so they subbed a local dinner with available friends. And it's potluck, not just the hostess cooking. The food media picked up on it and now it's a Thing.

Those refugees would not have had to beat the border patrol agents to death if the border patrol agents were not patrolling the border dressed like some sort of militant authority figure. Those men were just trying to come here to make a better life for their children. Why don't you want refugee children to have food and basic access to healthcare?

309 I almost never go to Bed, Bath and Beyond unless it's for something for the church. On All Saints Sunday we did the terrible, awful Catholic thing (J/K ;^) ) of lighting candles in memory of the Saints-Which St Paul defines as followers of Christ-not just canonized Saints-who have gone to be with the Lord and who let their light shine while on earth. I went to B, B and B for candles. I am the least craft oriented person i know and getting little things for house just doesn't happen very often. I hate shopping-period. Several weeks ago I went to a brunch for volunteers for our local Farmer's Market. the woman have lovely little embroidered towels in her restroom and everything in her beautiful house was tastefullycoordinated . That is not me! I liked it but it was not me.

Fenelon, Thanks for your kind words. I'm never sure how my straight arrow comments about the art will play with all the snark and humor. (And this thread brings out some funny stuff.)

In case I forget for the next book thread, I've been thumbing through "That Nothing May Be Lost" by Father Paul Scalia. He's the son of the late Justice and delivered that beautiful and touching eulogy. The man is a gifted writer and brings, by my admittedly low standards, wonderful insight into aspects of Christianity. The orientation is Roman Catholic but I believe it would appeal to many Christians.

Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving.

Mine is the November after my mom passed away. She made the best Italian fusion Turkey day dinner, just outstanding. So the first holiday after her death my brother and I couldn't bear to go to anyone else's house that day. We went to a restaurant, not knowing they served the most disgusting slop they called dinner. Honestly, I don't know how they got away with it.

That was the worst Thanksgiving for me. (And brother too).

387 >>> Is anyone here doing Friendsgiving? Is that a millennial thing?

Maybe? If I was far away from family I'd do that. I found out one of my friends was going to be spending Thanksgiving evening alone and was dreading it. This cannot stand! So she's spending the eve with us instead. So kind of a Friendsgiving. I am so grateful for her being in my life.

What DOES seem to be a millennial trend is the local grocery stores providing the whole meal, cooked and ready to go. So many of my friends are doing this. One pointed out it is always delicious, it comes out to less than $10 for a family of five, and your kitchen stays clean. Makes sense in a way! But I do worry certain traditions will die off, like Thanksgiving meal prep, because my generation is too lazy to continue them.

Same here. My mom died in October eight years ago while our son was a boot camp. He wasn't able to attend her funeral, and the whole time was awful.

I had planned to do something simple for us and a few close friends, but we were invited to a couple's house we're not really close to, and husband insisted we go.


The wife isn't a cook at all, and had bought a dried out pre-cooked turkey breast and a few slices of dried out ham. A friend of hers made a gelatinous dressing that was actually bright green and reeked of pure dried sage. I made a sweet potato casserole that their teenaged daughters wouldn't eat because Calories.

It really made me miss my mother a million times more. I vowed then and there I'd never give up doing the holiday myself again.

391 In case I forget for the next book thread, I've been thumbing through "That Nothing May Be Lost" by Father Paul Scalia. He's the son of the late Justice and delivered that beautiful and touching eulogy. The man is a gifted writer and brings, by my admittedly low standards, wonderful insight into aspects of Christianity. The orientation is Roman Catholic but I believe it would appeal to many Christians.

Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving.

Kallisto, in certain situations it's the perfect solution for the day. No shame in that. My day will consist of bringing a dessert and a gift for the family member hosting, and graze off the largesse made by others.

Kind of like they ran with the grass clippings narrative on the near fatal assault on Rand Paul. Some of them actually find the attack funny, and they're pretty sure Paul deserved it somehow.

There are no sanctuary cities. It's a myth similar to the no go zones which totally don't exist either. Heard it on TV!

Any of our submariners here? That Argentine sub may have been located and it's running out of oxygen very soon. It's sitting on the bottom somewhere, location and depth reports don't make a lot of sense. US Navy on the way. What are their rescue capabilities, anybody know?

479 I find it absolutely ludicrous to think that Moore was so evil that a cop had to be hired to protect cheerleaders from him. Nobody knew about this 20 years ago?!! What is the political affiliation of the cop?
They're going to demonize Moore until the voting stops on December 12th or whenever the election is. With this piling on, whatever credulity I had about any of this has rapidly disappeared.

Nope. But if my make coach and make headmaster noticed a 32 year old stranger hanging out around my girls' basketball team at a game, they would have seen to it that the stranger un-assed the campus.

That's what you do. Obviously.

And I'm not accusing Moore of doing that, but it's the job of any responsible adult to protect kids from weird lurkers.

The Morning Report 11/22/17

Good morning kids. Well, it's the day before Thanksgiving and in the midst of all the insanity we have much to be grateful for. Mostly it's the Left-Democrat-Media-Entertainment Complex absolutely immolating itself over the sexual abuse scandals now affecting dozens of its key figures. At the same time, the nearly two year campaign to destroy first candidate and now President Trump has utterly backfired on them. In fact, I think it's safe to say that his popularity and support has, shall we say, stiffened, in the face of it all.

And that brings us to two pieces I thought worthy of attention (since obviously the media will embargo and/or distort them), the first being the trashing by Ajit Pai's FCC of Obama-era Net Neutrality regulations and the news that despite the resistance and recalcitrance of the entrenched Establishmentarians in DC, the President's next agenda item is pure red meat: spending cuts and welfare reform. And to Enron advisor Paul Krugman and stunted socialist Robert B. Reichhhhhhh-uh I say THAT is how you "pay" for tax cuts.

Back to the Leftist Perversion scandal (we need a name for this), as the allegations against Judge Roy Moore are being exposed faster than Harvey Weinstein can drop his drawers at the Botanical Garden, the President has all but endorsed him outright. Too bad his hot but stupid daughter decided to give a soundbite that Moore's opponent is now using in his campaign ads; not that that matters since I have seen reports that Moore is rising in the polls and in the all-important dona
