The Morning Report - 1/23/20

cipollo.jpg

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

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

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

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

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

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

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

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

The downsides are that by not rejecting this garbage outright, Cocaine Mitch and the RINOs have set a horrible precedent: they've given the made-up and laughable "crimes" and "impeachable offenses" named in the two impeachment articles legitimacy -- setting a horrible precedent that will allow any future House of one party to impeach a President of the other party simply for being of the other party.

As Dennis Prager repeatedly says: "The Left ruins everything it touches."

With a lot of money, a candidate can carpet bomb areas with ads, even the big fat lie kind over and over, not giving the opposition time for rebuttal. Like Joey the Gimp used to tell Adolph, "keep telling the lie and sooner than later the people believe it".

The only people who see guilt of anything Trump said are people that want to see guilt. Like Malor.

Attorney Generals from 21 States are urging the Senate to reject Impeachment. They say the Articles have legal & factual problems, and the Democrats case sets a dangerous historical precedent."EVEN AN UNSUCCESSFUL EFFORT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT UNDERMINES THE INTEGRITY...

OF THE 2020 ELECTION BECSUSE IT WEAPONIZES A PROCESS THAT SHOULD ONLY BE INITIATED IN EXCEEDINGLY RARE CIRCUMSTANCES, AND SHOULD NEVER BE USED FOR PARTISAN PURPOSES." @HeatherChilders @FoxNews The Democrats are trying hard to damage Republicans prior to the Election!

@realDonaldTrump 12 minutes ago

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

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

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


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

101 Maybe Mini Mike will run 3rd party, with the intent on leeching votes from Trump by reluctant fence-sitters who don't want to vote for Trump, but would anyway just because the Dem candidate is so bad. Not enough for Mini Mike to win, but enough to deny Trump votes. Just a thought.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did he think it'd buffalo some weak Republican senator into breaking ranks?

Did he think no one would challenge the accuracy?

But it is also revealing:
That he and the rest of the media believe whole hog the entirety of Schiff's lies;
That he and the rest of the media have investigated no further than the headlines;
That he and the media have read none of Trump's "defense"

As I said, the truth doesn't need lies to help him get his boots on.

They have a playbook. It never changes.

It's the narrative that matters." Playbook never changes.

He is extremely sick and seems to have liver disease plus an infection. He's on ventilator and a lot of support. Still waiting to see if they can save him.

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

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

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

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

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

Like making mere criticism of Virginia politicians actionable.

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

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

Harry knew he'd never be king, but he still had a sweet gig. His daddy Chuck gets many millions each year from the Duchy of Cornwall. Chuck gives about $3 million -- each -- to his sons every year from that duchy income. All that Harry had to do was show up at a few public functions each year, smile for the cameras, and not say anything stupid. Granny the queen gave Harry and Megs a multi-million-dollar wedding, and a multi-million-dollar house as a wedding present, and also gave them @ $3 million of British taxpayers' money to refurb and furnish it to suit their extravagant PC tastes. Again, all Harry and Megs had to do was not be dicks in public. And these two holier-than-thou grifters couldn't even manage that.

===========

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quote II

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


Quote III

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Wrong. Here is how it will be spent:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Monty Python's Terry Jones RIP

Monty Python star Terry Jones has died at the age of 77, his agent has said.

Jones was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in 2016.

A statement released by his family said: “We are deeply saddened to have to announce the passing of beloved husband and father, Terry Jones.

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

So, according to the UN I can be an illegal immigrant to Fiji then. I would be a climate refugee.

This judgement has implications for US border control, as unskilled illegal immigrants who attempt to enter the USA are starting to claim they are really climate refugees.

Climate refugees can’t be returned home, says landmark UN human rights ruling

Experts say judgment is ‘tipping point’ that opens the door to climate crisis claims for protection

It is unlawful for governments to return people to countries where their lives might be threatened by the climate crisis, a landmark ruling by the United Nations human rights committee has found.

What utter Bull Shit.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The latest knucklehead or useful knucklehead anyway is Sen Kennedy from LA - he didn't mean to be, but Senators cannot help their asses - they love a camera and are not thinking that the media will use this inability to think in front them to their and the Dems advantage.

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

Wat Turtle needs to have a caucus meeting tonight and shut this moronic impulse to fee the press - otherwise he'll have shit show on his hand - one he doesn't want.

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



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



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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

>>>>>

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

302 I'm sure this has been discussed here (and elsewhere?) already, but the Democrat's first article of imbananament alleges POTUS did [whatever he's alleged to have to have done] in order to...

"benefit his reelection, harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and influence the 2020 United States Presidential election to his advantage."

This last bit, it speaks to motive, yes? Where did it come from? Can this be proven?

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

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

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

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

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

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

A narrative is no basis for conviction.

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

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

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

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

Also, AMTRAK, MBNA, who knows who else. Having watched other political dynasties evolve, Joe was hoping to get Hunter on the same track, even trying the Military Service ploy. But, Hunter, being a worthless, sel-indulgent, spoiled little fuck, just couldn't be bothered to be a worthwhile human being. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

AOP said that he met at a Studebaker owner's convention at LeMay in the parking lot in 2018, but didn't take the tour. Because he didn't have enough time to do the tour properly.

AOP is one very smart guy. You need to plan more time than the Skipper planned for the SS Minnow's 3-hour tour, to properly absorb LeMay.

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





Posted by: HTL at January 22, 2020 11:56 PM (on1DJ)

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

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

393 The cavalry on both sides did major damage, that can

to win a battle as any other arm.
Posted by: Quint at January 22, 2020 10:27 PM (n13/j)


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

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

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

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

453 My two cents on kicking out older people to encourage younger people to go to church: this church has BIG problems.

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

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

486 I came to Christ in '75, from being an unchurched heathen.

Joined a Christian and Missionary Church (a denomination from Baptist roots, but focused on missionary work to the far-east, mostly China), which was near to me.

Parted from them when I joined the USAF in '76. Found a new church home in San Antonio in late '78, more of a Charismatic formula, but still tracing roots back to a Baptist lineage.

Here's the thing.

I never bought into the Dispensationalism of any of their theology. Bible either said what it said, or it didn't.

And that's how I still see it, today.

Theological nuances and difficulties?

I can worry those out over prayer and study.

I really don't understand why churches think it's okay to change doctrine in response to the times. As a church you're telling people "These are the unchanging facts of life. What we're telling you is literally the Word of God."

If your doctrine changes, it's perfectly reasonable for people to ask if any of it is divinely inspired.

I mean, sure, change the music. You can even change the traditions (though I hate that), or the wording of prayers in your service. But if you told my grandfather sodomy is a quick trip to hell, and now you're saying it's not a sin at all... what am I to think?

Read his novels. KNOW his Biography.

He was a Moron, before his time.

Here's the thing. I've lived one HELL of an un-believable life. And I'm not a pimple on the ass of the life L'Amour lived.

Humbly? Buncha you Morons here, too, MASSIVELY out-class me in the un-believable life category.

And I'm GRATEFUL for that.

531 FWIW, the Methodists seem to be doing that with virtually all of their older congregations.

Ask me how I know.

And I haven't been back to ANY Methodist church since they pushed my congregation out of our long time home.

Funny thing is, they still can't figure out why their attendance numbers keep declining.

you sound like a damn dummy. The Presbyterian Church did not break on Southern/Northern lines until the early 1980s. I bet most today would be ashamed of being in the leftist circle. Today you have an entity that despises church and is ashamed of God.

You also have a group that welcomes all believers regardless of race or origin. It was stupid for people to come apart based on the Civil War tough it was foolish to not understand why. What really matters today is that most Dems don't believe, period. Need I spell it out?

Funny bit of history about the longbow:

We all know the 'peace sign', two fingers in a 'V' with the thumb holding the curled fingers facing away. When Winston Churchill was holding his fingers in a 'V', the thumb holding the curled fingers was facing toward him, a mirror image of the peace sign.

That Winston Churchill hand gesture comes from the days of the longbow men. They needed strong fingers to pull back on that bow and it took years of training to be a competent longbow man. They were deadly on the battlefield and, if captured, the French (it was always the French who fought against the English in The Longbow Wars), would cut off those two fingers so that the man was never able to wield a longbow again.

So, to taunt the French Monty Python-style, the longbow men would hold up two fingers in a 'V', with the curled fingers inward as they did when puling back the bowstring. That gesture translated as 'Fuck you, come and get them' (the fingers). So while we think Churchill is saying 'V' for Victory with his hand sign (as I remember being told as a young 'un), Churchill was actually telling Hitler, 'Fuck You'. Just like when we extend our middle finger.

The more you know. CBS cares.

551 I'm sick and tired of politicians. I'm sick and tired of "Impeachment". I'm sick and tired of our forces being stuck in the Middle East. I'm sick and tired of most of the current events.

I found this today and for just a brief moment my faith in mankind was restored. Until some scold laments about it.


Preach.

The world is a fairly miserable place, in my opinion. It was a perfect Garden of delight and innocence until we decided that we should run it ourselves.

Most of us still have a soul memory of what is good and true and holy and wonderful and it makes our inner beings ache for what is lost and anger at what is coming. We hold on to what is good and decent and try to pass it in to our kids and our kid's kids in hopes that it can be restored, and every time we engage in this it's like flicking a lighter in a cave and we can see for a minute and we think, if only for an instant, that with illumination we might be able to find our way out, our way back to goodness.

But we fear and know that the relief is only temporary because we have limited fuel. But if we can show that light to everyone, they get their own lighter too and there is power in that, because we recognize that all those lights together could illuminate the world. And we grieve each time one of the brightest lights, the torches if you will, leave us and join the Eternal, because we know our world is darker and that light will not return. And we rejoice because they found their way home.

But we can not despair. It is our duty to bear that tiny insignificant light, seemingly useless in the thick, black darkness. It seems useless and hopeless, but each flicker is showing another, teaching, offering hope.

Will we ever show everyone and drive darkness from our world? No. Only the return of the loving, immortal Lord has the power to do that.

But we can show another. We can lead a brother, a daughter or a friend to embrace the illumination over choosing to succumb to a life in darkness, to settle for a fate and stop trying, stop searching, to forget what is good.

And that, my friend, is what you writers do here. You illuminate, you lead, you protect, you offer a shoulder for those that cannot see you grasp hold of as the stumble in darkness. Are you angry and sarcastic and pessimistic at times while you do so? Of course, you are human and who could not grow weary in the midst of such inequity. But you also show backbone and determination and you use humor and sheer grit to pass that light on, the light for freedom and goodness, tradition and righteousness, family and God, and you make that flicker shine for many.

God bless you all and embolden you to continue to shine until you find your way out. You give hope to those that think these thoughts they too have are burdens that must be borne alone. You develop community and alleviate in this place the utter hopelessness.

Great and inspiring you are, take pride in that friends.

558 AK, they offered to "let" another congregation "merge" with us (against our wishes), and within six months, all of us were basically told our services were no longer needed.

Not in so many words, of course, but it was basically a non-hostile takeover. Lots of bad feelings on our part.

A few of the members had been young children when ground was broken on that church, and had been there for 50+ years.

We came there in our mid-20's, and all 4 of our children were baptized there.

They even threw out the Scout Troop.

What scares me the most about Schiffty is that he's a former Federal Prosecutor from California. If he had been my prosecutor and I was convicted, I'd be digging knee deep into his history for my appeals. The amount of lying he's done in the past couple of years just did not happen out of the clear blue; there has to be a history of lying and twisting 'facts'. Schiffty being a former Federal Prosecutor is really frightening.

I also see from Wiki that he went to Harvard Law. Now that's a shockah! Not!

619 Wong Kim Arc doesn't really apply to the so-called birthright tourism.

14 the amendment section 1

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof
, are citizens of the United States and of the
state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which
shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United
States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or
property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


Aliens who get a temporary VISA to visit the US for the purpose of delivering a child who will then be a citizen with the right to start chain migration are not legal residents of the US. Wong Kim Arc was a BS
ruling but the current interpretations of it make it totally
outlandish.

"provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if"

So, it appears to simply make Richmond the venue for any crimes of threatening the governor, etc. Threats and harassment are *already* crimes. That includes threatening and harassing gov't officials.
This just forces the trial to be held where it's convenient to those state officials. (Maybe this also prevents venue-shopping.)

Won Kim was regularly invoked by many to support their very own definition of "natural born citizens" (NBC) going so far as to INSIST they are quoting it with excerpts that are not anywhere in it and not admitting they were loosely paraphrasing it. Then use that to justify anyone born anywhere in the US is a NBC.

Another significant case used dealt with enrolling children of illegal aliens into public schools. Loosely paraphrasing that and the declaring children of illegal aliens are NBCs. That case, if I recollect correct, basically said even if you think a child is the spawn of illegal aliens, since the case hasn't been adjudicated, you cannot deny them equal access. That is my loose paraphrase.

So you have a couple of cases everyone invokes that actually do not declare that anyone is a NBC being used to declare any baby dropped in the US is a NBC.

So they began "suggesting" and pushing that everyone who wasn't on board with them should just leave.

In my experience, it has nothing do with attendance.

It has all to do with moving church doctrine and positions on SJW issues in the Progressive direction, and abandoning Christ's teachings for a secular position on such things.

724 I'm actually stunned the Democrats are not getting more pushback from the voters. Everywhere they exist in both state and local government, so does their tyranny. They are corrupting legislative processes, trampling law, Constitution and any voter who disagrees with them. They lie, obfuscate and hide the truth and get away with it because the media has lost any semblance of impartiality. What we are witnessing with this phony impeachment process is a preview of any future under Democrat rule. They don't care about facts. what's right, demonstrably true or just. What they care about is power, and lording over the citizenry, implementing their despotic policies at whim. That's not democracy, nor is it a constitutional republic. It is an authoritarian scheme antithetical to every single principle our country stands for. God help us if these people ever get in power. It will be a nightmare like our country has never seen.

If a religion has an ever changing doctrine du jour it will be seen as not worth learning. Our synagogue essentially did the same thing. It didn't ask people to leave but made it a bastion for lgtbq crap and diversity/anti-white supremacy. We went from history and ritual to an insistence that the leftist policies of Obama were "the right thing to do" (we are in love with that expression, even with no proof).

They still wanted our money though for their "vital" (though very anti-traditional) programs. We said FTS and left.

I don't think anyone wants to go to a religious service to hear that they are inherently evil. White is not the original sin.

Sundown Joe: The Economy Is Terrible, It Just Consists of "People Clipping Coupons In the Street." Or, Alternatively: "People Clipping Coupons In the Stock Market" (???!!!?

Does he mean... redeeming coupons attached to bearer bonds?

Does he think this is Die Hard? Or Mission: Impossible?

And what does he mean about people clipping coupons in the street?

Who clips coupons in the street?

What is he talking about?

Does he mean anything?

Or is he just sundowning as usual?



"No Marlarkey" Joe is peddling some serious malarkey.

The economy isn't merely good -- it's at a level which one would not be guilty of Trumpian overstatement to call an all-time high.

There is one chart that President Donald Trump's re-election campaign should be "plastering absolutely everywhere," said Fox Business host Deirdre Bolton on Fox Nation's "Deep Dive" on Thursday.

The graph shows the average unemployment rate in the first 35 months of each president's first term going back five decades.

The average unemployment rate nearly three years into President Trump's administration is 3.9 percent -- a 50-year low. The next best employment statistic was recorded during President George W. Bush's first term at 5.5 percent.

That statistic coupled with the fact that the wages of American workers are rising for the first time in years presents a challenge for Democrats in the 2020 election, according to the "Deep Dive" panel.

"Workers' wages have lately been rising faster than the salaries of their bosses. It pretty much knocks out the inequality argument. ... It appears the Trump era has been reducing [income inequality]," said James Freeman, the assistant editor of The Wall Street Journal's editorial page.

Meanwhile: Big dog gives a boost to a tiny little kitten.

That's slow Joe trying to use some Wall Street/bankster lingo. "Coupon" and the clipping thereof refers to interest payments on bonds.

In the old days, bonds were printed. Interest would be paid periodically on said bond, and that was redeemed in the form of literal coupons printed below the main part of the bond.

The coupons were torn or clipped at perforation marks.

One would take the coupon to the bank or other agent, and get one's interest payment.

106 "coupon clipping" was an expression for stolid dividend-oriented investors who just collected income from large established company stocks (which used to always pay dividends).

Dividend vs. price appreciation in the stock.

I assume this is whatever part of whatever's left of Biden's brain thought it was talking about.

"on the street" = Wall Street, i.e. in the market

None of which comes to the rescue here. Income-oriented investing is nothing controversial, and has no relation to the booming economy, which is booming by any standard.

The term coupon is still used to refer to interest on bonds. The "coupon rate" is the interest rate applied to the face value of the bond. The coupon payment is this rate times the face value of the bond which is paid at periodic intervals (every 6 months, or every year)

This is not the same as the yield. That involves a little fancy math.

Then there are zero-coupon bonds. They pay no coupon, but the face value is redeemed after the term expires. T-bills are examples of zero coupon. Notes and long bonds have coupons, paid every 6 months.

"Clipping coupons" means collecting the interest payments on bond investments.

Some bonds are "zero coupon"

Some people will grudgingly admit that, but then counter that Ryan should have been able to counter all that.

HOW?

What are you supposed to do? Point out all the lies, with Biden acting a fool the whole time? Biden would just reiterate the lie and move on. In the meanwhile you're not stating your talking points.

135 Yeah publius had it more precise up there - "coupon clipping" was mostly (and derived from) bond interest payments. Though I used to hear it in reference to any kind of very inactive, conservative investment approach emphasizing income over capital growth.

Generally "coupon clipping" used to be a sort of weak slur, implying that the investment wasn't contributing much to the economy, but just harvesting cash out of it.

I just remember watching it and thinking Ryan never went for the death blow. He, like Romney, thought they were the designated loser to the AA candidate. They went through the motions, but wanted to remain "principled" like our NRO friends

141 There was a certain point (many elections ago) when the candidate was For Sure going to be Bob Dole. Terrible choice, but it was his turn and nobody else wanted to lose to Bill Clinton.

Is that what we are seeing in the choice of Joe Biden?

I was damn sure that the Dem Party Apparatchiks wanted Kamala Harris would not accept Sleepy Joe. Joe won't stand a chance against Trump when the people get to see both of them on the trail.

Am I off my rocker here?

Bob Dole didn't have much charisma, but I don't remember thinking he was senile. Just too old.

Biden really does have a form of dementia that's painfully obvious despite not looking "ancient".

Joe is increasingly having problems creating complete sentences. His thoughts bounce around haphazardly in a single sentence.

In the '90's, he could still craft a complete thought and a complete sentence, even if it was nonsense. Now, not even a complete thought.

Joe is getting worse by the week.

And nearly *half* of the American public have so little information that their gaslighters have convinced them that information is "interference".

In 2004 when he was a "Republican" senator, when no one asked who he was voting for, he told everyone he was going to "write-in" George HW Bush, because that was a Republican he could respect.

Did he really do that? I doubt he voted, at all. But he signaled his virtue to all the BDS sufferers so they'd like him.

You have no bench; the field that is there right now - including the has-beens and also-rans - will be there for 2024. Why waste any of them when you have an open Republican field in '24 to have them run against. The Dems out there right now are just laying the groundwork for a future run. Biden probably won't be alive in 2021, much less 2024, so let him have his day in the sun.

On the other hand a couple Democrats have voted against their party and one even flipped. I'm not seeing a whole lot of evidence that Republicans are ready to buckle under just to get along.

This. After the Kavanaugh shitshow, not only were the Dems not horribly punished, they won the House and didn't lose as badly in the Senate as some forecasts predicted.

So I'm not confident in the American people's ability to connect any individual ( D ) candidate on their ballot with the impeachment shitshow. In the presidential race maybe, but not any office below that level.

407 322 For all the talk about Republicans being wimps and just wanting to get invited to Democrat parties there hasn't been a single Republican defection on the votes against Trump in the House or the Senate so far. Not one.

On the other hand a couple Democrats have voted against their party and one even flipped. I'm not seeing a whole lot of evidence that Republicans are ready to buckle under just to get along.

436 "372 >>I want to agree, and it is important to point out when the GOP stands firm, but it's early.

I think the performance by the House managers has sealed the deal with the potential wobblers. There maybe a token for witnesses by those who might need some cover in a re-election but not enough to change the outcome."

It's probably safe to agree there likely won't be defections to support removal. My primary concern is there could be some who go along with witnesses for the defense who then squeal about Joe Biden being called. If there are witnesses and they don't include the purported victim/plaintiff, it will drive the final nail in American justice.

I'm actually serious there.

Biden is showing his age & sounding out of touch again, that's all.

The long-term outlook is bleak. Trump at least buys time to try to salvage what can be, if anything. This whole impeachment cluster probably is a harbinger of how politics will be conducted in the near future.

I don't give a shit who wins the Democrat nomination. None of these freaks and dopes is going to beat Trump.

I have from a very good source, as in first hand, that they tried out bombs in Vietnam that were filled with dime washers. You let those things go at the right speed and you don't really need an explosive.

In fact, in the Civil War, artillery was way less effective than it could have been because it relied on an explosive charge to occur at the right second.

810 Warfare from the civil war to WWI is downright scary
when you think about it though. As Shelby Foote put it: 'The equipment
was way ahead of the tactics.' That is a period when I would NOT want to
be a line soldier, because your chances, they were not good. And that
is not even counting disease.



Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at January 22, 2020 09:26 PM (2B9A/)

That is a subject dear to my heart. It is a terrible subject but I find in endlessly interesting. For sure the disease part can not be contradicted. So many died of disease and that was a true waste of life.

The tactics vs technology discussion is ever interesting. The old school line was that Civil War Generals learned only of Napoleonic tactics and did not understand the changes brought on by the rifle-musket. I am not saying you are saying that, but that has been the general opinion for 150 years.

This subject has always interested me though there has been little real academic research on the subject. A book I have read from time to time came out a few years ago called Civil War Infantry Tactics by Earl Hess.

The long and short is that the leaders at that time made the best with what they had. They knew the power of the rifle-musket and also its limitations. They did make changes to the order of battle. For example, they spread out picketss and vendettes. They spread out attacking lines when they could and they also spead up the marching rate/cadence. The key point is these people did realize there were fundamental changes to warfare, and they did not blindly follow traditions based on another time.

That takes nothing away from the slaughter, waste and disease. But It does show these people tried their best to deal with a catastrophic situation. And we are not right to just assume they could have used fire and maneuver. In fact, that would not have been possible. But I would be glad to discuss this further. This subject would be a good thread really.

Surprise: Adam Schiff Misrepresented Evidence In Senate Trial's Opening

I don't think any of us saw this coming.


In a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York, lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff likely mischaracterized evidence from former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to Nadler last week summarizing evidence put forward by Parnas, who has been indicted for fraud, claiming that Parnas "continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky." The text message from Parnas to Giuliani reads "trying to get us Mr. Z..." with the rest of the text contained in Schiff's letter redacted.


Documents reviewed by Politico show that "Mr. Z," however, probably referred to Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, on whose board Hunter Biden once served while raking in $50,000 a month despite no prior experience in the industry.

Politico reports that "an unredacted version of the exchange shows that several days later, Parnas sent Giuliani a word document that appears to show notes from an interview with Mykola Zlochevsky... followed by a text message to Giuliani that states ‘mr Z answers my brother.'" Therefore, Parnas was likely referring to Zlechevsky, not Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in the exchange.

Meanwhile, the public has gotten wise to Adam Schiff's co-conspirator, the media. A new poll says that 55% call the media "corrupt" and say it "exaggerates the news."

"The repetitive programming on networks and websites and the emphasis of the media to pump the news cycle with the same stories can create burnout, causing many to question the overall quality of the news," said the survey analysis.

The media freaked out on November 8, 2016, and it hasn't stopped freaking out since. It's been having a literal mental event since then, and is making all of its programming choices to entice those suffering the same mental event.

They're monetizing mental illness.

Jen Rubin retweeted it. I'm not kidding, I'm not trying to pick on her today, she's just being that idiotic

When called on this and ruthlessly pummeled by people mocking his blatant lie and stupidity, he then claimed it was satire! Why, anyone could imagine that being true!

1) they don't understand what the word "Evidence" means
2) they don't understand that Schiff doesn't actually have any.
3) they don't know that someone standing up and swearing that he has stuff, but he can't produce it, is not "Evidence".
4) they don't understand that Courts actually deal with this thing all the time, which is why we have rules about "Evidence."
5) they can't acknowledge that faking "evidence" is at the heart of every attempted bit of judicial corruption in recorded history.
6) they won't accept that this is why it's the Prosecution that has to produce actual Evidence, not Allegations.
7) They also won't accept the fundamental rule of all jurisprudence in the English speaking world; if the Prosecution cannot prove it's case using hard, verified evidence, then the Defendant is automatically judged to be Not Guilty. The Defendant is never required to prove a thing.

Recall: Advisor to hillary campaign

How does this [problem of Trump's mastery of TV] get handled in the general? Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I'm certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not. And as I've mentioned, we've all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking - and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.

If a prosecutor lies to the Judge and Jury in a trial, he can be sanctioned, and even prosecuted.

But here, because of the speech and debate clause, Shiff and Nadless can lie all they want, with no sanctions.

However, if one of the President's attorneys were to lie, they could be sanctioned under the lying to Congress statutes.

When one side can lie, and one side can't, there's a problem.

84 But here, because of the speech and debate clause, Shiff and Nadless can lie all they want, with no sanctions.

However, if one of the President's attorneys were to lie, they could be sanctioned under the lying to Congress statutes.

When one side can lie, and one side can't, there's a problem.
Posted by: Don Q at January 22, 2020 06:40 PM (NgKpN)

160 Anyone who doesn't think this is a purely-political and PR proceeding isn't watching the jurors making statements about their impression of the evidence every two hours, answering questions about how their colleagues may vote on key issues, and slamming the defendant or the lawyers representing one side or the other. Holy cow.

184 With the never-ending war against Trump since practically the moment the election was called in his favor, the Democrats are telling us something very un-American: that we the People are not to be trusted with the vote. We might vote the wrong way!

See, in 2016 we voted wrong- we fucked up!- and now the Ds have to make things right.

By any means necessary.

And believe me, the left sees votes for any conservative to be wrong.
