Trump's Accuser Seems Bananas; David French Believes Her Implicitly, Because of Course He Does


John Nolte writes about this fake news lunacy:

The slow-motion trainwreck that has come to define Trump-accuser E. Jean Carroll's publicity blitz has been painful to watch, one more example of our corrupt media -- as a means to smear Trump -- psychologically abusing someone who is obviously unwell and unreliable.

Things finally came to a head on Monday night when Carroll slurred something so outrageous even CNN's basement-rated Anderson Cooper was speechless.

"I think most people think of rape as being sexy -- think of the fantasies," she said.

...

To begin with, her nearly 25-year-old accusation against Trump, her claim he raped her (although she now says it wasn't rape, but a "fight") at Bergdorf Goodman Department Store in Manhattan, is ludicrous.

Rape?

In a department store?

In Manhattan?

Are you kidding me?

One scream and Trumpís entire life would have been over.

...

If that isn't ludicrous enough, when she was asked last week if she would press assault charges against Trump, she told MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell that doing so would be "disrespectful to the women who are down on the border who are being raped around the clock down there without any protection."

"The women have very little protection there," she added. "It would just be disrespectful." And then she rambled on about all the rapes all around the world and how her bringing charges against Trump "just doesnít make sense to me."

Well, that's not an answer. It is, though, the most awkward pivot to a left-wing political talking point in the history of cable news.

David French, who sanctimoniously lectured everyone about the need for evidence in these situations in the case of a man of his profession and caste, Brett Kavanaugh, now sanctimoniously lectures everyone about the need to believe this accuser without any evidence at all, Because Trump.

He also attacks Republicans, as usual. Because he's a True Conservative.



So French is doing what liberals do -- they believe the accusations about the people they don't like, and they disbelieve the accusations about the people they like, and then they sanctimoniously attack everyone else for not sharing their biases.

But he's a True Conservative. Just ask xim!



David French continued doubling down, due to his own issues:



It's pretty easy to make an accusation, True Conservative.



And of course this repulsive, froglike, loose-assed cuck joined in:

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

It is an indictment of our educational system and the quality of our national leaders that the vile, murderous political philosophy of Lenin and Stalin and Mao and Pol Pot and a host of other power-hungry sociopaths isn't rejected on intellectual grounds, on moral grounds, and on practical grounds.

But here we go...the policy goals of the Communist Party of The United States of America and Democrat party are so closely aligned that they now consider themselves allies. Gone is the time when the Democrat party could be counted on to support the portion of the political philosophy of our founders that respected individuals and freedom and liberty. Because if history has taught us one thing, communism is about one thing...the concentration of power at the top of the party hierarchy. And there is no cost too great to be paid by the people.

'A gangster masquerading as president': American Communists plan Trump 2020 takedown

CHICAGO — America’s Communist Party concluded its national convention seemingly united on two themes: that they are a significant ally of the increasingly powerful left wing of the Democratic Party and that a viable future remains for the Communist Party USA.

As to the question of whether the CPUSA emerges in control or is absorbed into the broader socialism movement peppering the platforms of Democrats running for president in 2020, officials expressed confidence that the red star of their party will continue blazing.


China: 70,000,000
USSR: 60,000,000
Korea: 3,000,000
Cambodia: 2,500,000

And Afghanistan and Vietnam and Ethiopia and Yugoslavia and Mozambique and Romania and Cuba and Angola and...

The problem is the socialists and communists have successfully muddied the waters as to the definition of their philosophy.

When your average 20-something thinks of socialism they think of Sweden, when in fact Sweden DOES NOT have socialization of the means of production, which is what socialism actually stands for. The Scandi countries are high-tax welfare states; there is still personal property and private means of production.

But the kids with the heads full of mush don't understand that.

41 The fatal flaw of Socialism is in redistribution. In the name of material equality, they empower a government agency to control the entire economy. "A small group that controls all the wealth" is an aristocracy.

Creating an aristocracy in the name of any kind of equality is utterly self-defeating. And as GK Chesterton said, there has never been an aristocracy that didn't behave exactly like a small gang. Once it has absolute power, it no longer matters why the power was given.

Where's powerhouse Buttigieg? Oh, wait, he's never been more than a media creation.

Joe wants to follow the Trump route to the nomination, where he gets a plurality of votes in enough states to simply stamp out the rest of the field.

The problem is that Trump was actively trying to appeal to the forgotten part of his party's base. Biden, on the other hand, is actively trying to appeal to the part of the Democratic base that literally every other candidate is running towards at full speed.

Why vote for foolish old Joe to be your progressive guardian when you have 19 other choices? Why vote for good ole Joe when he's squashing any sense of his moderation with every flip flop?

73 Where's powerhouse Buttigieg? Oh, wait, he's never been more than a media creation.



Joe wants to follow the Trump route to the nomination, where he gets
a plurality of votes in enough states to simply stamp out the rest of
the field.



The problem is that Trump was actively trying to appeal to the
forgotten part of his party's base. Biden, on the other hand, is
actively trying to appeal to the part of the Democratic base that
literally every other candidate is running towards at full speed.



Why vote for foolish old Joe to be your progressive guardian when
you have 19 other choices? Why vote for good ole Joe when he's squashing
any sense of his moderation with every flip flop?

You were right about his staying power so far. And any look at that poll shows he has to do the Trump thing and go rogue. He won't do it and can't do it. He could take a huge gamble and act like a normal but no way he risks it. Better to go along and slowly fade away.

I, for way too long, imagined him staying above the fray of the Democratic primary and just saying relatively common sense things. His intended audience was going to be the Midwestern voters that went Obama-Trump. They have a huge say in the primary and will determine the next general election.

Instead, he's been bowing to every pressure from the Left, leaving the moderate voices of the party no reason to vote for him.

Marx's communist utopia was a deliberate lie.

The concept of historical materialism was designed to trick people into believing that there is something better than a free-market system with an emphasis on personal freedom and strong protections of property rights. Get enough idiots on board with this idea, and society reverts back to its default state, feudalism.

Leftards welcome this because they are the idiots who believe they will be among the aristocracy if only the dice can be cast again.

This is consonant with all epistemology that came after rationalism and the scientific method. Kant and his intellectual heirs were entirely full of shit. Formal deductive reasoning is the only way to point us toward truth. Individuals who are incapable of mastering logic are bad enough, but shitheads who can but choose to believe instead in mumbo jumbo like dialectics are far worse.

It is impossible to exchange ideas with an individual who willfully denies truth.

If he simply loses because he's not the only alternate choice in a 2 person primary, then no. He'll take his 15-20% of the vote count and the subsequent delegates and be a good loser, granting them (or whatever) to the eventual winner.

91 Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.

When your average 20-something thinks of

socialization of the means of production, which is what socialism
actually stands for. The Scandi countries are high-tax welfare states;

True.

I find the case study of the Pilgrim fascinating and crommulent to the thread.

They were originally founded as a commune. Bounty was to be shared with all. The problem was the able bodied farmers and hunters werent so keen on working to suport layabouts that didnt want to plant or hoe.

The almost starved to death.

It was only after Bradford and Standish allocated plots for ownership and that the owners could do with their bounty as they wished that the small villlage became self sufficient. They produced so much plenty that started a bounty festival we now know as THanksgiving.

Thats the REAL story about the beginnings of Thanksgving. A rebuke of communes.

139 Carefully noted, for the next time my writing-group colleague brings up Sweden as an example of "successful Socialism." I've pointed out to him that even if Sweden's setup were socialist, it has seemed to work only because of three things:

1) Small, homogeneous population;

2) North Sea oil profits; and

3) NATO, aka the U.S., takes care of their defense.

And just this week, Sweden (along with France) were notable in a recent experiment that showed Swedes are more discriminatory in hiring. Very "unwoke" preference for white immigrants over native-born POC.

140 Human beings will always act first in their own self interest. Its their nature. They will not exort themselves if there is nothing in it for them.
Posted by: Sleepy Joe at June 25, 2019 11:14 AM (8XRCm)

There's one important exception - human beings can be truly altruistic when the altruism is contained to tightly knit family groups of about 30 individuals or less. This is probably because in very tightly knit family groups, people's identity as "part of this family" is just as, if not more important, than their identity as individuals.

Socialism takes this inborn willingness to support Family and attempts to co-opt and replace it, thinking it can then apply to Everyone in the system. (it can't, we're wired to only feel that way towards people we are closely related to and who we know intimately) It's also why socialism wants to destroy Family identity, because that it it's greatest rival. Of course never realizing that if you destroy the Family, you destroy Civil Society in general.

++++++++++
The fatal flaw of *all* utopianism. It is the question that exposes fundamental political ideology/alignment:
"Do you believe that man is perfectible or not?"

If you believe that man is perfectible, you're susceptible to utopianism and virtually any sin is acceptable as you're working toward the perfection of man. Slavery and murder are just fine, so long as you're working toward a perfect version coming out the other side.

If you don't believe that man is perfectible, you'll instead work toward a system that can compensate for his imperfect reality - one that encourages the good and discourages the bad. You will accept that this system will not be perfect and look at averages to determine how to move them. Consistent, deliberate, equitable and minimal government/state action in combination with markets are the best system of the latter type we've found thus far.

Rush Limbaugh's children's book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, should be on every parent's and grandparent's list of books to read. It tells the true story of the pilgrims travels and struggles in the New World without getting political. It was written with oversight by actual accredited historians and contains photos and illustrations from England and Massachusetts , which is why it's always laughable when places such as Salon would call it a liar's fantasy book.

They are not that strong in terms of actual vote numbers, I surmise.

Whoever wins the primary should be the one who appeals to Democratic voters in MI, IA, SC, MS, TN, etc. These are not Democrats of the coastal variety. They are largely Democrats of the "My granddaddy was a New Deal Democrat and we've been like that ever since. We go to church and think that babies are people."

The fact that every prominent Democrat running is desperate to fly their progressive flags as much as possible means that these cultural Democrats in the flyover states are going to get very turned off by the party as a whole and the media is going to have to work overtime (if they even try) to moderate the eventual winner's image.

Remember, for all of 2008 we were told by the NYT, CNN, NBC, and the rest that Barack Obama was a moderate centrist.

234 Your going to love this:

So TheHill has a story:

"Biden leads among Hispanic voters in key states: polls"[/]

and in the story mentions:

"Hispanics in each of the four areas said they preferred to replace President Trump rather than reelect him."


Okay I say to myself. I continue to reading.


"That margin was closest in Florida, where 34 percent of respondents said they would pick the incumbent again while 56 percent picked to have him replaced."

Hey wait a minute: 34% would vote for Trump and 8% undecided for a total of 42%!

So now I'm wondering "What percentage did Trump get in 2016?"

They have an answer.

Many GOP strategists predicted that Trump's rhetoric about immigration on the campaign trail would hurt him among Latino voters in 2016; however, he ended up winning 28 percent of the Hispanic vote that year based on exit polls

So Trump, with all his talk of illegal immigration crackdowns and immigration reform, has improved his position with Hispanics.

242 The modern Democrat Party is nothing but a shell. Within that shell are housed some of the most extreme and destructive threats to our democratic republic.

Every one of their proposals can be traced back to an authoritarian effort. Each can be traced to negative liberty or a surrender of sovereignty.

That's because the Democrat Party is not concerned with America or our well being. They want to rule, not govern, so it's about conquest and forcing an agenda down the throats of ordinary Americans.

There is no despicable tactic they won't use. They will brainwash, undermine, propagandize, subvert, break the law, distort the Constitution and use the levers of government like a hammer to get their way.

It won't stop until they are completely destroyed.

Any person voting or supporting them is culpable for all that will predictably happen.

Yup. Government types in general - and lefty government types in particular - look at people, places, jobs, skills, etc. as essentially interchangeable. I have noticed (purely anecdotal, of course) that the smarter the person is, the more easily he can come to believe this. If you are really competent and smart and can pivot into something new and keep up, it's probably easier to believe that other people can, too. If you also have your hands on the levers of power, it can lead to really bad policy.

But people, places, jobs, skills, etc. are *not* essentially interchangeable. They are to some degree, of course. If you're a machinist in a car plant, you can probably slide over to QA at an electronics plant with some retraining. But sliding from from a machinist in a car plant to a junior accountant at a firm will be much harder and depending on the person may be impossible. Cincinnati is a lot like Pittsburgh - but your aging parents may not be in Cincinnati and moving, while possible, may be decidedly non-trivial.

The viewing of people, places, skills and jobs as essentially interchangeable regardless of any other context or relation between the source and the destination is, in my opinion, a mark of profound contempt for people and is probably sociopathic.

--------

I think it's too far out of control, anymore. The Democrat Party is largely insulated from its voters to a degree that the Republicans are not (as evidenced by the rise of Trumpism).

However, Trump also showed that they are losing hold of those moderates at general election time, when they can no longer completely guide events. As the Left wing Maoist faction of the Party spins further and further from the center, it can only get worse.

I don't think the Party wants to or even can prevent a radical of some stripe from taking the nomination, and they will not be able to convince centrist Dem voters that he/she is moderate as they did with Obama. They're all too crazy, too outspoken, and have a record of nutso behavior behind them.

Instead, the media's tactic will be to silence pro-Trump people wherever they can, which is a pretty extensive reach, while increasing the pitch, frequency, and volume of their "ORANGEMANBAD!!!!!111! REEEEEE!!!!" messaging, in an attempt to play off fear, anger and, oppositional defiance.

I don't think it will work.

and when you read actual accounts of them from the middle ages, a lot of them (maybe even most) were not at all like what their hype proclaimed them to be. In large part, especially in England, they became proto-corporations where the member swore to abstain from marriage and kept all wealth in the community. (didn't stop many of them from having women and kids on the side, of course)

One of the big reasons that Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries is that it was estimated that by his time, the various religious orders owned 1/4 of all the wealth and all of the land in England. Of course he took all of it for his own, which is what cemented his power.

283 "If you believe that man is perfectible, you're susceptible to utopianism..."

And belief in perfectibility is a purely relgious belief. Science flat-out states perfection is impossible; it's only possible with foreknowledge and that violates causality.

Instead, the media's tactic will be to silence pro-Trump people wherever they can, which is a pretty extensive reach, while increasing the pitch, frequency, and volume of their "ORANGEMANBAD!!!!!111! REEEEEE!!!!" messaging, in an attempt to play off fear, anger and, oppositional defiance.

Unless they silence Trump himself, it won't work, I don't think.

I also believe it will be a very difficult task to moderate the nominee's image, but they will certainly try. Whether it's ignoring past statements (and treating Trump like a crazy person for bringing them up) or making something like voting rights for current inmates sound reasonable, they will try.

It's becoming increasingly clear to me that this year may be the best shot in a couple of generations to see a brokered convention, which could actually split the Democratic Party.

Whoever prayed for 2020 to be an interesting cycle is getting their money's worth.

People are interchangeable in the macro sense. And you can't make economic policy on an individual basis. If there's a better job in Pittsburg but your parents are in Cincinatti, that's a decision you make. But we shouldn't stop that job in Pittsburg from being created because moving is tough. Mobility is one of the reasons we became an economic power. Willingness to drop everything and move 1000 miles away for a new job or business opportunity is a uniquely American thing.

Depends on by whom, I think. I suspect most Christians and Jews probably think that man can be perfect in the Kingdom of Heaven, but is imperfect and imperfectible on Earth. Down here on the physical plane, you have to accommodate imperfection and discourage the basest of behaviors. Perfection is your eternal world, not your transient earthly one.

Win the nomination this time, lose to Trump, and be first in line for 2024?

Possible motive, but unrealistic.

Romney didn't even run in 16, but he wouldn't have come close to winning, and his kingmaker role in the party led to nothing for him.

Maybe Democrats can keep better control of their party than Republicans, but I kind of doubt it now. The Establishment ceded too much control to the activist Left after 16, especially within the DNC.

Rooster Cogburn, the movie with John Wayne, was the sequel to True Grit, which was where the lawman Rooster Cogburn first appeared.

Debate is always heavy as to which Rooster Cogburn is better, John Wayne or Jeff Bridges. I personally favor John Wayne for the character, but I think the Jeff Bridges version is a better movie.

60 When I first glanced at it, I thought the girls were identical twins. Now, seeing that not only she is reflected in the mirror but also the reversed sketch, I'm even more impressed.

In the online video game "Fishdom," which Miss Linda is currently obsessed with, you can buy decorations to put in your virtual tank. Two of them are mermaids! One is wearing a white blouse, and the other has a nice D-shell bikini top. Unfortunately they're just decorations instead of "live" fishy occupants. But I told her it was about time there was something to the game that a male over the age of nine could enjoy.

Ha - you want to know what the real "Tell" in that article is? Where it says "Cameron teamed up with Joe Romm..."

Those of us who have followed the Clinton's over the years know that Joe Romm has been one of the Clinton's "Made Men" since the early 90's. He's been in on every dirty deal they ever pulled, he's been one of their key men pushing every aspect of the Climate Scam at every level, and he's been a top lieutenant of John Podesta, Hillary's campaign manager who was instrumental in setting up and orchestrating the entire "Russia Collusion!" scandal.

And so Cameron "just happens" to team up with Joe Romm...

Rooster Cogburn, the movie with John Wayne, was the sequel to True
Grit, which was where the lawman Rooster Cogburn first appeared.



Debate is always heavy as to which Rooster Cogburn is better, John
Wayne or Jeff Bridges. I personally favor John Wayne for the character,
but I think the Jeff Bridges version is a better movie.



And nobody did Ned Pepper better than Robert Duvall.

Posted by: tom servo at June 25, 2019 09:40 AM (V2Yro)

I like the Cohen version better but not by much. One thing I don't recall having been discussed here before is the Wayne Rio Bravo, El Dorado, Rio Lobo trilogy. As I recall it, it is the same movie made three times. Don't get me wrong, I love the story, it is right up my alley. I love the idea of a group of tough men standing together etc. But to make the same moving three times is notable. I wish he made it four times. I do not Rio Bravo was supposed to be an answer to High Noon.

131 We need free enerji for people of color because enerji powers emoji and it's a free speech issue because old white men are keeping the enerji for themselves by using fossil fuels, which means there's not, like, enough enerji for people of color to have the emoji they need to communicate. That's why we need renewable enerji for everyone. And maybe some white-male-fired power plants. This is all established by academic research, ok?

Well I haven't been following this story, because I see enough crazy in my real world, but I think that's a convoluted way of saying the old saying, which is about rape not being a "sex" crime, since the intent of the rapist is often not sexual, but power and dominance.


Or something. So if this broad is struggling with the "sexual contact" concept, it's her hangup on the word.

207 North Texas, buyers are buying, inflating the fuck out of the value, then selling. And getting their asking price.



it's really fucking things up for us property tax payers.



My brother lives in a small town north of Dallas along the I 35
corridor in a 1400 sq ft house, I think....may be smaller. One 2 doors
down of a similar size just sold for $165k on less than 1/4 acre. His
house is taxed at $90k......something isn't right with this picture.


Posted by: Sponge at June 25, 2019 10:00 AM

Same thing happening here 65 miles NE of Dallas. Houses do not stay on the market very long and they are getting the asking price or very close to it.


The DFW metroplex people are spreading north and inflating home values causing property taxes to climb beyond simple inflation.

Rooster: "That was the position them New Mexicans took. I had to flee for my life!"

You're right, great line! And the extended scene, if I recall it correctly, has always stood out to me as an example of how a good writer (Portis) can use what seems to be on offhand to store to set up very important elements of the plot.

When he's talking to Mattie, Rooster tells her how in the end he got away from the New Mexicans by charging straight at all 7 of them, both pistols blazing, and how most normal men can't take that, and will turn and run when faced with that coming at them. That's how he got away.

In the big, final confrontation with Ned Pepper's gang, Rooster Cogburn takes them down by charging straight at them on horseback, shooting both pistols. Just as he told Mattie he likes to do.

285 210 I heard excerpts on Larry O'Connor's show yesterday of the interview this E. Jean Carroll woman did yesterday morning on, I think, MSNBC (is that where Alison Camerota is?). This Carroll woman is, to put it very charitably, not all there. Or a druggie, or a drunk, or maybe all of the above. But she made absolutely no sense at all. None.
Posted by: bluebell at June 25, 2019 10:09 AM (aXucN)"

That was a VERY telling interview, for those who have some skill at reading people. (and I think most of us do, some practice more than others)

The lefty's are interpreting her obvious fear at the end as fear of Trump (their projected fantasies) and others, more justifiably, are saying it just proves how nuts she is. (true that) But I think there's another very obvious way to read her demaeanor - she's been an "advice" columnist, a gossip columnist with society friends her whole life, it's clear she's lived a life of spouting off snide and nasty things without every having to worry about consequences because of who she is.

So she thought (because she's stupid and has always gotten away with it before) that she could drop this little bomb in her book and just walk away laughing. And you could see on her face, in that interview, that this isn't going to work that way, that she just stuck herself in the middle between two POWERFUL enemies, and she is now going to be the object of intense inspection and action by both of them. (I predict the left more than the right, when they realize she won't do what they want)

and you can see the realization that she's just set herself up as a target break over her face in the middle of that interview. Clearly, the thought never had occurred to her before, although it should have.

Late to the thread. Did I miss the "True Grit" discussion?


I love Charles Portis and think the Coen brothers did a terrific job
capturing the tone and spirit of his characters. My only gripe with
the movie is where they add needless bits like Mattie climbing the tree
to cut down the corpse or that fellah wearing the bear head.

I'm of the opinion that sparks fly on screen between Kim Darby as Mattie and John Wayne as Rooster (no, not *those* kind of sparks, you pervs). There is an palpable energy on screen, the clash of personalities, that I don't get with Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld.

Both the old version and the new follow the dialogue and events in the novel very closely. The new one retains the novel's ending, though.

Depends on your definition of "the 'hood." I live on the West Bank (I call it the "Occupied" West Bank) of the Miss. River, and ghetto-ization is proceeding apace. Even the suburban-like parts of the WB, where the Target and the bigger Walmart are located, are getting to be pretty 'hood-like. There's certainly no shortage of baby-daddies and baby-mommas in Target.

When they're right out of the fryer? McDonalds.

On average? Wendy's.

If you've got to take them down the road 20 minutes before eating? Burger King.

McDonalds fries go to absolute shit if you don't eat them right away. Wendy's last a bit longer, and they've got good quality control.

440 I do not understand how it is that the citizenry came to accept property tax based on value in the first place. It is a tax on capital.

Way back, the property tax here was determined by the front footage of property. The idea being that the cost to the municipality to provide services approximately corresponded to that front footage, which is fairly rational.

Why and how the politicians managed to foist a tax on the public based on property value, is beyond me.

There is exactly -zero- correlation between the value of a property and the municipal support cost, let alone the owner's ability to pay that tax.

I suppose that, like most taxes, it started out as "Oh, it's only $25.00 a year..."

Now we have older homeowners whose property value soared, struggling to pay the damned property tax. It's obscene.

Oh, and, it's never enough. Never.

The Morning Report - 6/25/19

googbbls.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday so here we go. First, to the border where in the wake of the President's announcement that he has delayed his mass ICE operation to round up illegal alien dead-enders, ostensibly for two weeks as a "concession" to Congress to get serious on passing legislation to deal with the crisis, Nancy Palsi's dentures are rattling out a victory cry in between disgusting lies about enforcing our immigration laws as "scaring the children." First and foremost, let me just say, fuck you, lady. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to some brass tacks analysis at least from my perspective.

First, as I led with yesterday, if Kevin McAleenan did in fact leak the news of the operation, he broke all kinds of federal laws and must be immediately sacked, then prosecuted and then do serious prison time. Insubordination and insurrection that goes unpunished is a cancer. Second, why is the President even telegraphing his intentions about ICE and the CBP in the first place? Shouldn't each of these organizations merely as a matter of course be enforcing every one of our laws already on the books and even ramping up operations to deport, not just those who've exhausted their appeals but anyone and everyone here illegally? That is a rhetorical question. I would hope that his touting these ICE raids is not political grandstanding. In the event, there may be things going on behind the scenes that could allay some fears since late yesterday, Mexico announced that it is now sending 15,000 of its troops to its southern border to stop future migrant invasion caravans from entering and heading to the Rio Grande. CORRECTION: They are being deployed along the border with the US to prevent the migrant hordes from crossing the Rio Grande.

Mr. President, this is not only the singular issue that got you elected; it's the most important one to voters and really to the life of this nation going forward. It is every bit a national security and battle front as is with Iran, China or Islamic imperialism. In fact, it could be argued that the last two if not all three are even intertwined with the invasion from south of the border. High time we treat it as such.

But of course, we have a Lindsay Graham amnesty for migration swap getting a boost with the two-week delay and Palsi Pelosi going on about some House bill that will completely take the handcuffs off the invaders and put them on us as the former jump the border. This has got to stop. There can be no parlaying with the Democrats on this and really on any other thing. They are an anti-American subversive criminal organization and should be treated as such. At the bare minimum, they are not to be compromised with since giving them even an inch is lethal to whatever vestige of the republic exists, but I digress. I mean, this crooked old bint spewed out "what's the point" of enforcing our immigration laws? And then there's Eric "nuke 'em high" Swallowswell doing the "they're gonna put y'all back in chains" blood libel about Trump caging illegal alien kids. Lastly, a good essay about mass unchecked immigration across the globe as a form of reparations for all the evil and ills that western civilization unleashed on the world. Feh.

On to the Clinton/Obama Coup to Take Down Trump, Sebastian Gorka reexamines the so-called "Norway gaffe" in relation to the actual documented crimes of the twin towering turds of tyranny, Margot Cleveland on Hope Hicks' testimony as yet another truth-nuking of the collusion myth, and with the Clinton Bought-and-Paid-For Steele Dossier trashed, is the Intelligence Community Assessment next to be relegated to the science fiction section?

Democrat Scandal Sheet: The party that is known for its tolerance and diversity just promoted a fine upstanding woman who is also well known... mostly for racist and homophobic slurs. In the Official Democrat Joo-Hatred files, the US Holocaust Museum rejects Chiquita Khruschev's vile vomitus about concentration camps and the big-boobed-booby seemed to backtrack, before blaming Liz Cheney for her ills. She really is a quintessential leftist. Lastly, note to Cory Booker - it's Afro-Sheen, not Sheenie.

Politics: The Intercept's Ryan Grim looks at the rise of populism on both sides and what that means for big money interests and the establishment in 2020, will radicalization work for the Dems? Meh, they always were radical; it's just that Trump made them drop all pretense. Donald Bolduc does a Rooster Cogburn to Jeanne Shaheen's poor man's Ned Pepper, hell yes the Dems are plotting to steal 2020, Gavin Threesome blames America first, last and always, Styrene Steyer looking to buy Virginia, Miami Dems getting nervous about the open anti-American campaign crazy talk, and Victor Davis Hanson with a fine outing about the always-rickety alliance of disparate grievance groups cracking up at the seams.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: The big story here is the Project Veritas investigative report on how Google is actively using its tentacles to sabotage Trump in 2020 and even future Trumps from ever having a shot. CNN's interview with this nutter Trump rape accuser goes off the rails and the NY Times defends its caution about this Carroll psycho to a readership that wanted it splashed across page one in bold letters, SCOTUS gets it right about the big crucifix case but how sad that it even was a case in the first place and lastly the media is out to sabotage any prospect of Saudi-Israeli rapprochement.

Guns: Say no to these penguins; "Nuns Against Guns" is a fraud, Marxist front group.

Abortion: Somehow sanity prevailed in England where the disabled woman won't be forced to kill the baby.

Foreign Desk: The Iran situation tops the news where the President announced another round of sections, even ones that specifically target Ayatollah Khamenei himself. Of course, Iran borrows Khruschev's shoe on loan from Gavin Newsom to pound the table while Secretary of State Pompeo does the Kissinger shuffle to corral allies, and Caroline Glick accurately hones in on why the Middle East is such a powder keg - Obama. Elsewhere, three essays on the Chi-Com long- and short-term threats, the Tories troubles in picking a leader, and lastly a must bookmark essay from Rabbi Fischer on the utter myth of "Palestine." Part 2 tomorrow, I assume.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Daniel Greenfield on the Syrian Muslim refugee who plotted to blow up a black church. Funny how this is nowhere to be found in the media.

Domestic News: Oregon GOP legislators on the lam from rogue Marxist governor. See the link in the Red Green section about this as well. Trump not shy about declaring a SCOTUS nominee in 2020 if that arises, two essays on recent SCOTUS decisions, and another DeBolshevik decriminalizing scheme about as effective as you'd expect.

Crime and Punishment: It's good PR, but Country Time Lemonade is doing right by the kiddies.

Education: Bernardo Sandersnista's insane youth vote buying scheme to pay off over $1 trillion in student loans, despite Janus, most teachers have no idea about how they can opt out of union dues payment, and this Richard Carranza who heads NYC's Board of Ed is beyond belief.

Red Greens: Oregon set to go full luddite. See the associated link in Domestic News.

Feminazism, Transgender Psychosis: 51% say junk-tuckers should use the bathroom that corresponds to the bits they were born with and psychiatrists can't understand why freakazoids can't scare up a date. Scare being the operative word. Lastly, women's soccer and a look at the so-called "wage gap."

Hither and Yon: Dennis Prager on nationalism and part two of fighting and winning culture war.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

20 The left uses emotion to deflect from its obvious desire to undermine the rule of law. I do not have to hate illegal immigrants to want them out of the country. As if the only people who need to follow the law are those I don't like, and I should be totes ok with people I do like breaking the law. What country do I get to enter without permission, expect to have my children educated, get a driver's license, and receive benefits? And after illegally entering, I expect that I should have my breaking the law rewarded instead of punished by being allowed to stay. We will not long have a country if we don't protect it.

24 Walter Russell Mead makes a great point about Trump, which is that he can make lemonade out of lemons better than anyone. When his HS secretary revolts and leaks to the media, Trump turns around and makes a symbolically magnanimous concession to Congress, pushing the ball on reform right the fuck where it belongs: on Nancy Pelosi.

26 Good morning. Thank you JJ!!

So I just read that this week and next is Congress' summer break. This is also the time during which Trump said he'd hold off deporting those aliens who lost or didn't show for their asylum hearings, and he'd start up again after this two week period...so Dems could work with him on a counter proposal.


Huh.

Yeah, it is mystifying. President Trump knows what's happening to conservative voices from every corner of the interwebs. He even twits about it every so often. But if he doesn't do something now, and G*d forbid he would lose next year, we will be shut down on a whole level never seen before in the USA. With our 1A all but vanquished. It's truly shocking...shocking...just how fast we are losing this precious right. And none that can do anything to stop the obvious is doing a whole lot about it. At least, not that I can see.

50 Second, why is the President even telegraphing his intentions about ICE and the CBP in the first place? Shouldn't each of these organizations merely as a matter of course be enforcing every one of our laws already on the books and even ramping up operations to deport, not just those who've exhausted their appeals but anyone and everyone here illegally?

Resources? After all, it ain't like the Dems are giving him unlimited, ahem, ANY extra cash to throw at this.

In the event, there may be things going on behind the scenes that could allay some fears since late yesterday, Mexico announced that it is now sending 15,000 of its troops to its southern border to stop future migrant invasion caravans from entering and heading to the Rio Grande.

Um, JJ, those 15k new troops are for their NORTHERN border, aka our southern border. In any event, it is good news. AMLO appears to have taken Trump's threat seriously.

57 Blair explains how important finding love is to happiness. Hardly anyone would disagree with her there. Then she goes on to say, "If very few people are willing to date trans people, what does this mean for their health and well-being? If trans and non-binary people lack access to one of the most stable sources of social support, this could explain some of the existing health disparities within trans communities."

Lacking access makes it sound like a good or serice; no one is owed or denied access to romantic partners.

Maybe instead of seeing this as an access issue, this could be part of the counseling provided to people who express possible trans interest - these people should understand what they're getting inti vs. all of the current cheerleading and offers to accelerate the process.

And if one thinks it would be weird to mention to a 6 year old trans that he/she might be risking future romantic possibilities, then might they consider that allowing a 6 year old to dictate changing their sex is wholly inappropriate and criminally bad parenting?

Exactly.
Paying off college loans is a racket.

-- Lefty colleges and universities have become the major indoctrination centers

-- They also ensure that students graduate with such great debt that they support Lefty/Socialist political schemes (e.g.,Medicare for all 'cause we can't afford healthcare)

-- Also make it much harder for these young people to establish an independent life - marriage, kids, home because they have this huge debt hanging over them; again, making them embrace Leftism

-- If the government then swoops in to pay the loasn the schools can afford to continue the scam

The only solution that will stop this cycle is to have the schools shoulder the debt; part or all, whatever - they sold useless degrees so they need to assist the suckers who bought 'em, NOT the taxpayers.

104 Seriously, my family scrimped and saved and sacrificed for years so I could go to college with no debt. I had to work a full time job to pay for books and regular living expenses, but still. Will my family be getting a refund for that...?

-

The fun part? Those parents are required to pay $10k or so out of pocket each year even with a student receiving financial aid.

Parents who spent their money on cars and vacations instead? Loans for full amounts, no financial obligation expected.

Think they're also keen on amping up illegal immigrant voting, particularly via issuing drivers licenses to illegals w/motor-voter registration (just passed in NY, almost in OR except for the fleeing GOP legislators) as a way to drive up the popular vote totals for the Democrat candidate.

Now that they've passed legislation assigning electoral votes based on national popular vote in numerous states, they have to make sure they get a larger volume of votes. Blue states like CA, OR, NY can help with thig bigly; no purple or swing state status needed to game popular vote totals.

Costs go through the atmosphere.

Rinse, repeat.

On March 30, 2010, Obama signed a bill that was rammed through a Dem controlled House and Senate that effectively turned the government into the only source of college loans. Costs have skyrocketed. Just like Obamacare.

161 141: Because colleges lie. Most kids enter with the though that they will be employable. Universities encourage fields that they need to fill to justify the faculty and staff. They make them sound fabulous and point to the one or two grads (not necessarily from their schools) that have done well or became famous (not even in that field). Freshmen are kids and are dazzled by this (they get very attractive recruiters) and change their plans from technology to some sort of "studies". Universities have worked hard to exclude parents from knowing majors, courses, grades. This is why.

180 College costs started to spiral when manufacturing jobs dried up. I went to school in the mid 70s. It was pretty cheap, but then colleges were competing with the decent manufacturing wages and good enough lifestyle these offered.
Manufacturing moved to China, some people got super rich, other got dirt in the face. College seemed like an answer for these people, but universities betrayed their mission by pushing for shitty programs and political agendas, while accepting way to many foreign students into STEM majors.

Set in not-Greece under a dictatorship that, completely coincidentally, sort of resembles the one Greece had in the early 60s, the movie starts with a planned protest. The dictatorship decides to feed the protesters' cause by clamping down on the protest as hard as possible.

He knew with GE and other bailouts that his name was the key, his name would make them whole. But the tribute he demanded was a deal no mere mortal could get. you can look it up with GE alone I think he got preferred stock paying 10 percent and warrants. It was a deal no one else could get.

Back when I was a kid (yeah, yeah, get off my lawn) that sort of thing was the domain of high schools. You still see the palest shadow of it in some high school curricula, but the expectation was that a college applicant would already have a pretty good grounding in those areas.

College, or at least my college, did not exist to begin that kind of education - if anything it would build upon what college students already had. What college did for me was narrow the focus and increase the depth of my education to my major. Still, I remember quite a few double takes when another college in my town started offering language degrees. "Wait...you're getting a BA....for speaking GERMAN?!?

And most horrifying of all to the Dems, it would have meant renegotiating all of the featherbedding UAW contracts.

There was a standing offer from Ford Motor Co. at the time, the one American Auto Co. that was still solvent and in good financial shape, to take over all of GM's plants and keep them operating. But that plan would have insisted on renegotiating all contracts, with the termination of any employees who had no actual useful jobs. (a big part of any GM plant.)

So of course that had to be stopped - that would have badly hurt the UAW's payoff machine to the Dem Party, so billions and billions of dollars were spent, and all we have to show for it is now every American auto company is weak and fading away.

Oh, but GM promised to put Billions of money that it didn't have into creating a Great New Glorious Electric Car product, which Democrats wanted. To date, every attempt along those lines has been a disastrous flop, and all of the money GM has put into the project has been lost. They're still trying, because they have a whole department of engineers and promoters who exist to do nothing but that, so the loss generation goes on and on and on.

and their mantra is "yes we know everything up until now has been a complete failure, but just wait, this next one is gonna be great!!!"

If I remember correctly, the book Organization Man lamented that business colleges in particular taught students what business could teach them and not what business could not teach them. Either way, these days people want a pay off. I agree not everyone needs college but even that view is controversial, even here.

One thing I know for sure, is ceding this stuff to the hard left isn't in anyone's interest.

Moving out investment returns to 367 days reduces your taxes to 20% (or less). Running it through a corp at most 25%. SS and Medicare alone is 12.4+2.9 or 15.3% on all income up to 132,900 for SS.

Just wait. There is a biiiig push now from us not just supporting Donald Trump's presidency, but doing so in any form labels and equates you as a "White Supremacist." This is what they are doing. And not only is it meant to shame you, mock you and relentlessly impugn you, doing so also places you in great physical danger from their army of Antifa and other assorted spin-offs. Social credit "scoring" is just the means to perpetuate the label and punish you accordingly.

I remember hearing that companies started using college degrees as a winnowing tool and proof a potential employee was capable and semi-disciplined, due to all the equal opportunity hiring rules and the lousy state of our high schools (diploma mills).

So what happens when all of the colleges are free and become diploma mills? Only grad school grads will be hired? People will have to go to a specialized tech finishing school after college, to prove they really know how to code? To the Left, all those possibilities are features, not bugs, because they create more teaching jobs and more administrators, most of whom will contribute to and vote for Dems.

Why give "College Credit" for something any illegal alien can do fluently by the time they're 5 years old?

Speaking a foreign language is just something some people do well. Other's don't. Those that do are rewarded with wider ranging and more lucrative job opportunities, and that makes it a skill worth having.

But I'm not the right person to ask - I think the entire College system is corrupt and useless, and is composed mainly of self-entitled people slapping each other on the back and telling each other how much more "intelligent" they are than everyone else. I would abolish it all and start from scratch.

And once the vaunted "Degree" became nothing more that an official Pedigree, it no longer mattered exactly how one was obtained, just that it was obtained.

304 The article about the dem's tricks misses something important, and I think you can already see it in play now. He's right that of course they would *want* to do that; but Leftists of all types right now (never Trumpers are included here) have political Tourette's syndrome. Of course it would be better if they could have some Big Secret that they were sitting on - but they Do Not Have the Ability to do that.

Every single hint of anything scandalous is blasted across the net the instant it's concocted. They've been doing this since Trump's campaign started, they've been doing it for years, they hate him so much they can't do anything else.

And the relative quiet now? THEY'VE EXHAUSTED EVERYTHING THEY HAD. Good Generals in a war always hold something back, so that they never get stuck in this position. Emotional idiots think it's a Virtue to go "ALL IN!" every possible moment - and they never think ahead to what happens when your "all-in" play goes bust.

Why do you think Nadler's committee has ground to a halt, and is doing nothing but handing out snarling press releases that mean nothing? He's got nothing left to do, except call in people like Hope Hicks and insult her while accomplishing nothing. That's what they're down to.

We only had all 10 of our Squadrons F/A-18's operational one time and that was right after we switched over from A-7's and went back to Japan. From that point forward we had at least one and sometimes two hangar Queens.

And that was for a forward deployed Strike Fighter Squadron, The Tip of the Spear as it were. State side Squadrons were worse off than we were.

I'm actually watching to see if anything happens to McAleenan because this is a real possibility. We don't know what really happened, of course, but we all have seen how one of Trump's favorite tactics is to make a big threat, promise action, and then back off at the last second to see if he can get some political deal cut from it. Don't knock it, sometimes it works, as with Mexico sending troops to the border.

And sometimes it fails, but even then there's some political mileage gained from the effort.

Donald Bolduc does a Rooster Cogburn to Jeanne Shaheen's poor man's Ned Pepper

The only part of that I understood was "Rooster Cogburn," and I've never seen it. Since my horizons expanded in later life, I've always meant to get around to watching more John Wayne flix, but alas this Cogburn reference is lost on me. (As are too many film and theater and historic references. Poor, ignorant, uncultured me.) I know Wayne wore an eyepatch and co-starred with Katharine Hepburn, right?


It just occurred to me: Could we get that Razorfist (?) guy to do audio of the Morning Report every M-F? That would be intriguing. Could he eschew his trademark foulmouthings, though? (Would he be up early enough?)

Mexico is doing both, much to their credit. I suspect, and hope, that the real reason President Obrador decided to move troops to the US border is that he's going to use the army to reassert government control over the region. It's been an open secret that for years now the Cartel's have been the only authority in the northern border states, and that there has been no central government control over anything that happens there.

Rooster Cogburn, the movie with John Wayne, was the sequel to True Grit, which was where the lawman Rooster Cogburn first appeared.

Debate is always heavy as to which Rooster Cogburn is better, John Wayne of Jeff Bridges. I personally favor John Wayne for the character, but I think the Jeff Bridges version is a better movie.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

I acknowledge that students who are entering STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields must attend college. But for most of the rest, sending your child to college is playing Russian roulette with their values, character and even joy of life. Dennis Prager


Quote II

"A judge has no right to tell an independent media outlet to remove factually based content and commentary from a website, particularly since this website is my livelihood. As a former history teacher, I understand why the Founding Fathers insisted that free speech be protected in the Bill of Rights, particularly speech that some may find offensive. Protecting agreeable speech is easy, but our freedoms are put to the test when some find it to be controversial." Aidan Kearney


Quote III

"When your personal experience, and particularly your livelihood, is tied up in a particular pattern of the world, it’s really hard right to hear anybody say anything that appears to attack that or discredit it." Janine Parry


Quote IV

"Thanks. I will pass on this.” Former United States Attorney Andrew Luger

***


We all know this. But it is worth repeating: Liberals are hypocrites.

Canada declared a national climate emergency on Monday. The next day, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave the greenlight to a massive oil sands pipeline.

The House of Commons, with strong support declared climate change a “real and urgent crisis.” A week before, Justin Trudeau proposed a ban on single-use plastics, which, if implemented, would be the latest in a growing number of bans on plastic that could put multibillion-dollar bets on plastics and petrochemicals by the oil industry at risk.

But Trudeau has never really stood in the way of Canada’s oil industry, despite years of platitudes about addressing climate change. That was clear on June 18, when he gave the approval to the Trans Mountain Expansion (not for the first time), a $4.5 billion twin pipeline that would run along an existing line from Alberta to the Pacific Coast in British Columbia.

Last week we covered Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) pandering to the student debt holders. This week she is pandering to the gay population.

Elizabeth Warren has made a campaign of promising nearly every identity group in existence some form of monetary handout. Whether it’s race, age, or socioeconomic background, she’s got something for you. From reparations for the descendants of slaves to paying off student loans of millennials.

The media have taken this as a sign of just how serious of a candidate she is. You see, she has “plans” and that’s what really matters here. The fact that her plans are mostly nonsensical, not possible, and sometimes even harmful don’t play into the equation.

Well, Warren isn’t done yet. She’s got a new string she’s pulling on.

Gay reparations.

U.K. schools continue to sing the SJW song loud and clear.

Ah, school days — those innocent days of youth. On second thought, make that “mostly innocent.” Kids who fought a lot or were found cheating faced suspension. So did children who acted up in class.

Students were never suspended for refusing to accept the politically correct notion that there are more than two genders, but times have changed. The Evening Standard reports:

Once again The ONT is looking out for you. The best place to have sex................ And the answer isn't any room where you can get lucky.


When it comes to sex, most couples save their intimate moments for the bedroom.

But according to one doctor they should make more effort to spice things up a bit and move to different rooms in the house.
Dr Shahzadi Harper, an expert in menopause and libido, claims the best place to have sex is the kitchen.

While it may not seem like the most hygienic setting, she says there's one huge benefit to getting down to it in the room.

Apparently the kitchen is much better when it comes to burning calories.

I can hear the SJWs and leftists crying.

When Kimberly Matte captions an Instagram post “suns out, guns out, buns out,” she mostly means it. The sun may be out, but she’s inside. Her buns are definitely out, because she’s wearing a lime-green thong. Technically, there’s only one gun out, but it’s an AR-10 battle rifle, so she’s still overdelivering.

Matte has more than 84,000 followers on Instagram and recently founded her own social media marketing and modeling agency. She grew up in Windsor, Ontario, one of seven children — a fan of skateboarding, dirt-biking, four-wheeling, soccer, and tree forts, and not of guns. The first time she held a shotgun, she was a kid, “65 pounds soaking wet.” Her dad and brothers thought it would be funny to let her shoot it. “They didn’t tell me it was going to basically rip my shoulder off,” she says. “I was like, I’m never touching a gun again.”

But then three years ago, she moved to Michigan to be with her American husband, who’d recently retired from the military. Now they shoot guns together, and arrange assault-weapon-centric lingerie photo sessions for Matte and her clients. She makes good money for her part, doing sponsored posts for brands both firearm-related and not — assault rifles one day, teeth-whitening treatments the next. For $100 and some free products, Matte will post a “selfie and shoutout” on her Instagram grid; she gets paid thousands of dollars per month for recurring endorsements.

This was probably Zappa's last rock appearance on the stage and it is recorded on the album Adieu C. A. (Soviet Army). via thisdayinmusic.com

Prostitute, car thief and Genius Award Winner.

UNE 21--An Alabama woman has been charged with the sexual torture of a 25-year-old man who was “under the influence of GHB” and bound with duct tape when he was assaulted, according to court filing.

In a charge sheet filed this week, Jennifer Johnson, 36, was accused of violating the incapacitated man with a sex toy at a residence in Cottondale, a Tuscaloosa suburb.

Police learned of the March 19 attack when they discovered incriminating videos on Johnson’s phone following her arrest last month for possession of a stolen Honda Civic. At the time of her May 10 bust, Johnson “stated she was a prostitute,” according to a court filing.

Attending a professional sporting event as a child is a pretty special event. It is even more special when you get to meet your "idol". Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Albert Pujols and the Angels went home with a loss in Thursday’s contest against the Blue Jays, but the future Hall of Famer took time after the game to make sure one young fan went home a winner.

Nico, a child with Down syndrome, was wearing Pujols’s jersey in the crowd. And as the Angels came together following the game, Pujols appeared to notice him in the stands down the first-base line.

That’s when Pujols jogged over to Nico, pulled off his jersey and signed it prior to presenting it to the fan.

51 I acknowledge that students who are entering STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields must attend college. But for most of the rest, sending your child to college is playing Russian roulette with their values, character and even joy of life. Dennis Prager

He's absolutely right. A motivated student can study literature, history, philosophy, English, whatever on his own.

It's tough to do the same with STEM subjects, certainly initially, and it would take the student inordinately long to get up to speed.

Why do I say that? Because STEM subjects typically compound intellectually very quickly, by which I mean that having any chance of grasping next week's material will necessitate mastering this week's material. If you fall behind, pretty soon you're dragged behind and can never catch up.

For example, if a student fails to master this week's material on the nomenclature of organic compounds, he'll be dead meat next week when the lecturer starts talking about, say, alpha,beta-unsaturated ketones and does not draw the structures.

In math, if you don't have a stranglehold on, say, differentiation, you're dead meat when Lagrange multipliers comes up.

This is my conjecture on why people don't like STEM subjects, and/or consider them difficult. There's no point in cramming the night before a test; if you haven't kept up, you might as well go party that night, because there is NO WAY you can possibly master a term's worth of material in a night. No one can do that.

Contrast that with, say, literature. You can dip into literature here and there, as you like, without adverse consequences, because there is no comparable conceptual progression in literature as there is in STEM. The night before a test, you can dip into some of the assigned texts, get some idea of the plot and the major characters, and bullshit your way through if necessary.

(Full disclosure: I minored in literature, although I did not have recourse to the strategy outlined above.)

The point of the administrative state is to ensure that *nobody's* vote matters. Much easier to just back it to the rafters with aligned bureaucrats and then maintain the vote because it doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things.

Yup. Ever since they made aptitude testing by employers essentially illegal, the "college degree" became a proxy. It's more than possible to go upside down on the transaction now, though. It is so damn expensive that job training and going blue-collar may well put you ahead of the six-figure liberal arts major.

90 Re: Quote II:

As an erstwhile Reason subscriber: fuck 'em. They'll whine about the government censor because it's safe, and then defend the corporate one, because it's not.

Hell, just look at rap music over the last 15 years.

In 2003, Westside Connection took serious heat for releasing an album called "Terrorist Threats" with† this lyric from "Lights Out..."†

"Here comes the young Osama
With that al-Qaeda drama."

Now, don't get me wrong... that wasn't cool. It's still too soon for that joke, much less a year and a half after. But it was edgy, and transgressive, and WC was yuuuge... people were bumping their raps on five continents. It pissed off a lot of people (myself included, and I was a fan).

Back then, nothing was off limits in rap, and everybody - everybody - was fair game.

Rap is now completely PC. It's pathetic.†

Can you imagine a rapper bashing gays every other song like Eminem? Or advocating outlawing abortion, or flat-out demanding street justice death penalties for men and women who get abortions, like Geto Boys?†No.

For instance, the only song I can think of that mentions gays is the horribly lame "Same Love" by that sad weenie Macklemore.†

Even rap has necrotic soy-dick.†

Anyone who has anything controversial to say, even big stars, better STFU if they want to keep a job.

Free speech is a dead letter, and the government was able to pull that off without lifting a finger. The enemy is us.

In 2017, Ilhan Omar filed for divorce from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi (her alleged brother).

2017. This wasn't years ago. She was 34, and in the Minnesota state legislature.

She filed a special divorce petition, used in cases where the person wanting the divorce doesn't know the whereabouts of her spouse.

Omar, under penalty of perjury, swore in the divorce filing that:

-That she had no contact with, and didn't know the whereabouts of Elmi since 2011.

-That she didn't know any of Elmi's relatives.

-That she and Elmi had no acquaintances in common.

Perjury. Perjury. Perjury.

I wonder if he'll finally wake up one morning and decide, "You know what, fuck this shit."

Then proceeds to end every federal agency except for the military, and activates them to enforce the closure of border with orders to shoot on sight anyone who looks like Jim Acosta.

Then when an Hawaiian judge inevitably overrules him, he arrests the judge and sends him to Gitmo, and signs a executive order declaring Google, Facebook and all the social media lovelies to be terrorist organizations and nukes their HQs from space using the Space Force, since it's the only way to be sure.

121 I have seen a lot of people who don't have bachelors degrees but have done well. What seems to be the key, degree or not, is focus and a plan. There are many with degrees but no focus nor a plan. It does not usually end well.

And explain to me why so many come out of college with less knowledge of history, civics, and the classics than when they went in? Look at this student debt issue that is resonating so much that it is the top of twitter and the focus of the Dem debate. Would student loan debt be such a huge issue if these degrees were paying off? There are alternatives, just ask Mike Rowe. I would require all students to listen to Mike Rowe speeches for a semester and forget all the SJW gobbledygook that is just adding to the bill.

Glad hers was good. When I was on the college tour carousel, most schools had affable cheerleader types (men or women) do that. The higher up I went, though, the more off-putting they became. The worst of the bunch was NYU. I think they thought they were giving a "don't come here, you're not good enough and we don't you" pitch instead of a sales pitch. And they also butchered the language in a way that was an embarrassment to their school. It was the only college tour that resulted in an immediate "that's a big 10-NOPE" from me. Hell, Penn was more affable and they're an Ivy.

173 Outside skilled trades, not having a degree can definitely be a hindrance. In IT, once you're past the intern/entry level stage, you reach a point where you hit a promotability plateau. Finding a lateral job is harder. You either have a degree and become management, or go contractor with all of the income uncertainty and hired-gun stigma. Not to mention your resume either looks like a mess of bullet points or HR rejects you outright because they don't know the technologies they're hiring for and are just playing buzzword bingo.

It would be nice if there were a civilian technical equivalent of CWO/LDO for IT: do specialized work, be very good at it, haunt the smoke pit with a mug of coffee all day, manage nobody, write no evals, give no fucks. Oh well. Maybe there is, but I am still looking for it.

190 Regarding Quote 3 and its link and the numbskulls who love themselves some Public Radio and some tribal officials who love Mother Earth---grow the f**k up and read some history---you might learn something more nuanced than Captain Planet cartoons.

You don't think people should use the term "climate change" around rural people? OK, that's a good start. Here's a good next step: Don't take the "rural peoples'" tax money to fund your pagan religious propaganda.

I know that the science is settled, just as it was in the 1880s, when the rain followed the plow, and man was able to completely change the climate just by cultivating rangeland west of the 100th Meridian. There were never, ever any droughts after that, right?

I mean this is, like, science.

Yes, I'm angry. Maybe even furious. I'm weary of having to live under the rules of very, very stupid people like an assistant city manager in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and an under-educated dolt in a pickup with tax-exempt plates trying to tell fifth-generation farmers how to grow crops.

After I finally negotiated the insane robot call screener after screaming curse words into the phone for five minutes and got to Steve, he was very helpful and I have a tech scheduled for tomorrow.
The best part was when he asked "Do you have any dogs in the house that might be a problem?"
I said, "Only if the tech is afraid of being licked to death by a friendly dog!"
He laughed and said "I have a dog myself!", and we proceeded to exchange dog stories for about ten minutes. It was a very refreshing conversation and we both commented on how dehumanizing the call center business model is!

Calgary is in the midst of a huge recession right now. Oil companies are laying off hundreds of office workers. But nearly every block of downtown Calgary has a yuuuge high-rise office tower or condo project going up. The builders can't suspend work on them; they'd be sued out the ying-yang for breach of contract. So the construction workers are doing just fine. And when the good times resume, those builders will sitting on some prime real estate to rent or sell.

"Uncut Dope" was a deep cut. It was a pretty rare release. And that particular song was a little too raw and real for the Stepford wives on Top 40 radio and MTV. TBF, the FCC would've made them bleep 90% of it anyway.

Point is, the studios would never, ever let you even cut it today. It's off-message... beyond being exceedingly, violently anti-abortion, it explicitly mentions the way it's targeted on blacks.

Verboten!

266 like juicy smollet.

Speaking of Kim Foxx, the wonderful State's Attorney (DA) of Cook County, the Second City Cop police blog mentioned an incredible story from a couple of years ago.

Woman in Chicago commits a crime. Since it's a first time offense, the judge says that if she keeps her nose clean for a few months, her conviction will be expunged. Not a bad deal.

She doesn't keep her nose clean - she's caught speeding without a valid license. Gets probation. Completely blows off the terms of her probation. The Chicago cops pull her over for a traffic violation 500 days later. The judge orders her held in jail pending trial, because she obviously can't be trusted to show up for court appearances.

Complicating fact - she's pregnant, and will give birth soon. The judge is unyielding, and notes that the Cook County hospital treats inmates in the Cook County jail. She gives birth in the hospital.

New court hearing - the defendant shows up with her three-week-old baby, and an attorney starts screaming at the judge that he had no right to hold a pregnant woman in jail. The judge yells right back. Makes the papers.

Plot twist: the attorney screaming at the judge was the prosecutor - the #2 guy in Kim Foxx's office.

Now, you'd expect the public defender to forcefully represent his criminal client, but for the prosecutor to do so was - unusual.

So, the Chicago criminal justice system now has:

the public defender, who represents the interests of criminal defendants, and

the prosecuting state's attorney, who now also represents the interests of criminal defendants.

Somebody calculated that forgiving a student debt would be a major wealth transfer to the children of upper and upper-middle class families from everyone else.

The sort of person who goes $100,000+ into debt usually comes from an affluent family, went to an expensive private college, and decided to major in something "fulfilling", like art history, theater, or women's studies. It never occurred to them that their parents' affluence was a function of their parents' professional skills, and that a continued upper-middle-class existence was not theirs by birthright.

I believe this story is just going to fade away, and pretty rapidly. I've noticed something almost amusing if it wasn't so typical - the actual Left are staying far, far away from the story - they know it will drag them down to get associated with it, because it's so full of holes it's guaranteed to blow up on anyone who buys into it.

So who's pushing it hard? Allahpundit- The Cuckshed - David French - George Conway - ALL of the Nevertrumpers who are desperately thrilled and elated at even the hint of a story like this. And repeating it isn't even being done for the goal of taking Trump down, since they know that won't happen. Look at every instance of those cretins mentioning - their real target is US, Trump supporters who they hate even more than Trump himself, because won't worship their wisdom. Every story is "ha, see we were RIGHT you moral degenerates you are all worthless slobs you should have listened to us and did what we told you to do! We hates you we hates you we does!!!"

And that's really all that idiot Rape in Bergdorf's story is about. One last note - the accuser is at least smart enough to say "oh I'm not filing any charges or making any police reports." Heh. She can put a story like that in her garbage book, but she sure knows better than to repeat it under oath. Which of course is why she never did and never will.

Somewhere, probably buried in Google, is an office in charge of scrubbing the social media histories of left-wingers who are about to become famous or infamous.

Some Antifa-type in Berkeley committed a crime recently. The Berkeley cops knew his name, but refused to release it for a week. To me it seemed obvious that this was done so his social media history could be scrubbed, along with the organizations that he was affiliated with, before his name became publicly known.

I did a pretty through search on Christine Blasey-Ford's internet presence, and it was obviously professionally scrubbed. Academics normally have a pretty extensive internet presence, but in Blasey-Ford's case, almost nothing - no lectures on YouTube, no on-line class syllabi, nothing.

To really shoot a handgun right, you gotta spread your feet wide apart, and then you hold it one handed and hold your arm out to the side at a right angle to your body. Oh and you gotta hold the gun sideways too, and then pull the trigger a bunch while you talk smack like a pimp.

For sure. But how braindead can a person be? So, okay, you sell a few thousand books to members of the media, and some true whack jobs muttering "orangemanbad" in their sleep.

On the other hand, you'll engender the wrath of the man we all watched systematically destroy Stormy Daniels over accusations of infidelity that may actually have been true, unlike your nonsense.

That's a bad risk for a low reward.

Basically things to do and NOT do at a bar when you order, such as demand high-status spirits in lowbrow cocktails.

Another tip is, if you go to a high-end bar, order something high-end; if you go to a dive, order a dive drink.

I'd think half the fun of visiting a snooty richie-rich bar is ordering something so ghetto, it makes the bow-tied bartender turn purple.

The one the guy had right was asking for a shaken Martini. A, Ian Flemming was wrong and B, the guy who drinks it could not tell the difference on a bet. OTOH, as said by Ace's liver, make the drink and stop judging. You are a bartender. A great job but not so good to be judging people.

Interesting that feminists agree it was right to lobotomize her so that her habits wouldn't impact her brother's run for president.

Note that the Kennedy Klan claims she was deeply mentally disabled, but there are plenty of pictures of her you can see for yourself where she is a normal teenage/early 20 year old woman.

405 free public transportation for "the poor"

Because nothing encourages normal people to take public transportation like turning public transit into a rolling homeless shelter.

You can also do what Portland did, which was provide free, unlimited transit passes to high school students That encourages normal people to take public transportation too.

and of course a fuckton of new taxes.

The other thing that "woke" cities will be trying soon is to tie as many governmental fees and fines as possible to income. For example, if you get a speeding ticket, the amount of the fine should be tied to your income.

A now-departed Portland city councilman suggested tying parking charges to income - apparently you would have to put your driver's license into the parking machine, the machine would retrieve your income from the state tax database, and would then determine how much to charge you.

406 I've got the CBC app on my phone for news content. Stop laughing. It actually is usually helpful for international events the U.S. media refuses to cover.

But the past few weeks, the ONLY thing CBC wants to talk about is bloody global warming!!! THAT IS IT. That is the subject of every breaking story that has appeared on my phone and watch for WEEKS.

(With occasional smatterings of whining about how cruel and horrible the United States is for having immigration laws. Never mind that I can't enter Canada without facing the CBSA at a port of entry. Never mind the CBC also had stories hand wringing about people illegally entering Canada.)

410 Good evening.

Thanks for some Zappa finale, MisHum. Even with his man-bun.

All too short. The vid. His life.

My intro to Frank was a friend in H.S. who had the Mothers' Freak Out double album. I was never the same after that.

Well, actually, before that, I'd seen Only In It For the Money advertised in Marvel comics, and wondered, what genius has realized it was time to market rock to funnybookers? Sure stood out from the X-Ray Specs ads!

When I got to college, first year, the Mothers were the homecoming band. Unforgettable. One of only two good things from that college, the other being meeting Milady.

Momentary lull.
Guy real loud in the audience: "EAT ME, FRANK!"
Hush falls over the crowd.
Frank pauses, then intones: "I hope that's a girl with a really deep voice."
Audience roars. Band plays.

Then a Zappa groupie (seriously) and I hitched down to Chicago (we were so dumb) to catch first run of 200 Motels. Substance-free, I came out sorta tripping. I might've enjoyed it even more if the groupie hadn't been giving me inside remarks about everything in the movie.

Milady and I got to see him in Chicago, with his surprise guest star, "Mister Sting." That was a helluva show, too.

and then all too soon he was gone.

That's how it's done in Norway. I remember a story where some rich guy got a $300k speeding ticket. The question is why anybody would bust his ass to make more money in a country where the price of everything goes up with your income. You'd end up with an entire country full of people doing just enough to not get fired.

N.B. I have been to many countries, including some of the dodgier ones, and the most trouble I've ever had was entering Canada. (To make it better, I was just trying to change planes - I planned to spend four hours in Canada, and had no intention of leaving the airport.)

I had a friend with a similar problem. She was headed to a job site in Germany. She had a layover in Paris. The company handled the visas and whatnot. This was pre-EU.

Apparently the company got something wrong with the paperwork. When she got to CDG they told her she didn't have permission to be in France, that her visa was only good for Germany. They literally wouldn't let her walk 100 yards to the Lufthansa terminal and board a flight to Frankfurt, because those 100 yards were in France.

It took two hours to sort out, by which time she'd missed the flight to Fankfurt and had to spend the rest of the day in CDG, with a strict admonition not to leave the airport. I've always wondered if it was real or if there was some French guy looking to wring a bribe out of a weary traveler.

It's also kinda funny in light of the millions of people pouring over the border in recent years.

420 51 I acknowledge that students who are entering STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields must attend college. But for most of the rest, sending your child to college is playing Russian roulette with their values, character and even joy of life. Dennis Prager

"He's absolutely right. A motivated student can study literature, history, philosophy, English, whatever on his own.

"It's tough to do the same with STEM subjects, certainly initially, and it would take the student inordinately long to get up to speed..."

The problem is that while yes, indeed, STEM fields and study are extremely important, and yes, I suppose you can be motivated and study fields that require silly skills like reading on one's own, in this world, it takes all kinds.

For me, STEM fields are difficult because the math required is a nightmare for me. I stalled at Algebra I in HS and was happy to knock out College Algebra at the university level. At the same time, I have known people who have mastered various aspects of STEM or people in the medical world looking at me as if though I was the intellectual almighty just for studying history (and therefore able to speak to that subject and others) even though I was looking at them as if THEY were the intellectual almighty just for their mastery of skills such as math.

The point is that just as I would be in a world of hurt if I were confronted with the task of designing a structurally sound bridge, many of them would be shrieking with agony if they found themselves in an archive stuck doing a simple research project.

Again,in this world, it takes all kinds. We ALL have our role.

426 People who fancy themselves "all stemmy" like to conjecture that you can teach yourself history, philosophy, and literature, but arithmetic is so important that you have to be in a club with them.

If you teach yourself structural engineering, and then build a house, there's a fair to middling chance that when the house falls in, it only takes the self-taught engineer with it. Do that with a belief system, and screw up, and you do to whole mobs of people, families and all, what Prager is so worried about happening at Brooklyn or NYU.

The main reason for having the so-called "arts grads" out there in the world is that when you have whole clusters of arithmetic majors toiling away in their corporate cubicles, somebody has to be in charge to take care of them. Especially when they screw up and hurt people, because they are not capable of handling the consequences, the poor dears.

LOL. The Canadian border control guy was upset that I didn't already have my boarding pass for my Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong, despite all my other documentation. I could see the Cathay Pacific counter from the passport control station, so I offered to walk to the counter, get my boarding pass, and walk back to the passport control station. Didn't help.

Food for thought...

All assassins are crazy. But some more than others, and it seems to be a recent trend for them to just be loony gollums like Adam Lanza, et. al.

Booth had a reason to kill Lincoln. Guiteau had one for Garfield, Czolgosz had one for McKinley.

Then there was John Schrank, when things seemed to turn. He shot Roosevelt because McKinley's ghost commanded him to.

After that, Oswald shot Kennedy, vaguely because he was a Communist, but mostly because he was insane.

I suspect Sirhan Sirhan of something similar (but Arab nationalist instead of Commie). He was a raving lunatic, as well, though, and it's hard to even tell with him.

After that, it was just straight up lunatics.

Squeaky Fromme needs no introduction.

Sarah Jane Moore was a madwoman who went from SLA to FBI informant to attempted Presidential assassin over an obsession with Patty Hearst.

Then Hinckley stalked Carter and shot Reagan because... Jodie Foster??? Dude, you were never gonna get that one. Sorry. Not in the cards.

Now, think about the fact that people are demonstrably less sane than they've ever been.

Right here, this is the most galling thing about illegal immigration and the government's tolerance of it, and some Americans' celebration of it.

We ALL know "the rules". If you want to travel internationally, you need a passport, and possibly a visa. Usually it all depends on where you go. Every country, including this one, has rules for entry, and typically you have to enter the country through a port of entry, and you have to show an immigration or customs official a passport/visa, and their job is to make sure you are legit and aren't going to cause people in the country you are visiting problems as they have enough problems of their own.

Apparently people in this country don't understand what a passport means. Yes, in this country, if you are a citizen, it is rather easy to get a passport. But in truth a passport is the State Department's way of telling the officials of other countries something to the effect of "yeah, he's one of our citizens, and yeah, he/she is cool." Meaning, the citizen holding the passport isn't a hardened criminal or at least has not been convicted of any crimes in the United States, and can/should be a very low threat to the country being visited.

All of this is very basic, yet it is beyond the grasp of millions of Americans and unfortunately therefore beyond the grasp of the representatives and governments those citizens elect.

Most importantly, colleges no longer teach critical thinking - they teach students to mouth received platitudes.

For example, if you take an "energy economics" class at a modern American university, there is a 99.9% chance that you will be taught that it is imperative that we move to 100% renewable electrical generation as quickly as possible. This is taught as a received fact - not as a position to be defended.

The counter-argument that there are significant operational problems with a 100% renewable electrical system, and that it might be a lot more efficient to have a significant amount of fossil fuel generation, is simply not presented. Students have no idea how to respond if someone raises that argument.

Not until Oregon cap-and-trade is presented as a "regular" bill, instead of an "emergency" bill.

A "regular" bill allows the bill to be referred to a vote of the people, given enough petition signatures. An "emergency" bill does not.

The D's are doing this, because they know that cap-and-trade will lose by a sizable margin if the people vote on it, so they are trying to evade that.

But if various Texans such as myself put up such Republican Senators from Washington, we can give them an unassailable shelter from their Demoncrat majority.

'Cause I rather doubt that the legal machinery in Texas would produce the results desired by the Washington democrats, in time to make any difference at all.

Bonus. My guest would get Texas BBQ, time at the shootin' range, bourbon and cigars.

That's just for the Senator'ettes.

The dudes would have to find their own Texas entertainments.

Canada, Spain, France, Japan, Russia, etc. What I don't get it why most Americans do not know these basics. Immigration, legal and illegal, is a complicated subject. For whatever reason, most Americans have not been taught the most basic of concepts and they have no desire to learn them themselves. As far as I know, the only countries that do not control their borders are failed states and even they do it in other ways, worse ways.

Absolutely. Although I'd argue you could have stopped typing at "thinks" and still be very accurate.

I have a friend who is to the Left of Marx. A true limousine Leftist. She feels painfully for the plight of the "migrants" YET when she traveled internationally recently she did all those things I described above: went through ports of entry, saw Customs officials and presented them her passport, and the whole thing. Yet she believes at the exact same time people need to be allowed to stream into the country and that the border can and should be as innocuous as the county lines I cross on my commutes.

I also have Catholic friends who are outraged that the United States has things like border controls, immigration laws, and ports of entry, and so on. They got very angry with me when I pointed out that the Vatican isn't even a member of the Schengen Pact, and posted the requirements for visiting the Vatican - which, as I recall, is a walled city with six gates.

469 Most importantly, colleges no longer teach critical thinking - they teach students to mouth received platitudes.

For example, if you take an "energy economics" class at a modern American university, there is a 99.9% chance that you will be taught that it is imperative that we move to 100% renewable electrical generation as quickly as possible. This is taught as a received fact - not as a position to be defended.

The counter-argument that there are significant operational problems with a 100% renewable electrical system, and that it might be a lot more efficient to have a significant amount of fossil fuel generation, is simply not presented. Students have no idea how to respond if someone raises that argument.
Posted by: The ARC of History! at June 25, 2019 01:02 AM (I2/tG)

This is perhaps the biggest key: not teaching critical thinking. And it's not new. Back in my day, I had a psychology textbook (I hated that class) which, in a portion, praised the French medical system. In all their praise, they did not once mention cost, they did not once mention the abysmal pay of their doctors, and they did not mention once the state of the French nanny state, or the fact that the country is ossifying before our eyes.

The next semester I took a sociology class and the book had an article that heaped praise on Canada's medical system, and once again, it mentioned nothing about the expense, or the wait times, the fact that if doctors/nurses go on strike, how ruinous it is for people's appointments, and so forth. Now, I knew of these things, so I could read stuff like this with a critical eye. But what of those around me?

Otherwise?

I'd probably hit the sack 'round 4 am, and wake 'bout noon.

I want to move back aboard a boat for a retirement home. I know of no better place to mend, heal and relax, all due to the physical properties of the place itself.

Never mind that any boat I'd own, would soon end up looking like a Civil War Monitor, what with mounted weapons pointing out in every direction.

What, you thought the New Dawn looked like an innocent rowboat?

I get very jealous and angry with myself sometimes reading the Sunday book thread, when I see so many Moron authors touting their third, fourth or fifth books when after 15+ years I've only got one and a short story to my name.

I have written enough for a new book, and today before work I tried to put down in single sentences all of the various scenes I'd written - or, at least, all the ones I could remember. If I could only string them all together just right, I'm sure I could get a good first draft out in a couple of months.

Yeah, we are dumb but rich. We are unwelcoming but have welcomed more than any other land. We are the worst nation but must allow everyone to come here. The thing is, we have already been welcoming. We have already gladly allowed major changes to the populace over many decades. We allow everyone to become American but few countries do the same.

The most positive line you can say about Paris is that though not everyone came become French, anyone can become Parisian. That line has been used in many other countries as well. They say it as a positive. But we allow anyone who takes the steps to be an American. That is a strange idea in many other nations.

The US is a welcoming country and we have been a welcoming country. The crazy anti-American culture we have today always wants to start right now. Forget how welcoming we have been, that does not matter. What matters is this day right now. We are horrible for having borders for some reason.

As I have said before, these people need to sue their teachers and even cast some side eye to some of their parents. Way too many are ungrateful as hell and got through school learning nothing positive about their nation. Sure question authority, but being a jagoff is just being a jagoff.

From all I know, that is very true about Japan. An American can move there, learn their habits, love their nation, but never be Japanese. Very few shit on Japan, China, or Russia for this.
Not so for this land. America is more of an ideal than a race. Yes people don't understand how homogeneous we were even in the late 1800s and later. The free states prior to the Civil War were 98.8 percent white. That is a high number. But we are welcoming if you have the intrepid spirit. This is who we are.

Those that constantly crap on America because they read one pop pseudo-history book piss me off. From what I can tell, the biggest anti-Americans are home grown types who got cheated educationally and developmentally somewhere along the way.

I am not sure I fully understand this. The Soviets had a lot of land and resources as do many African countries. Some of the wealthiest nations per capita are small, densely populated, and short on resources. Some examples are Luxembourg, Denmark, Netherlands, etc. I could cheat and offer up Monaco and Singapore but i think we should stick with real nations.

Carter was a horrible president. But it was sad to me when we stopped electing veterans and war heroes. When Clinton took out GWB and Dole, the die was cast. We had a long line of veteran presidents since WW2 and the only one we have had since Clinton was W. *
* I am actually not sure if W is considered a veteran by the US government or not. This has nothing to do with the Rather BS controversy. I know W served his country but this nation is very particular about the term "veteran" In fact, it is a legal term and the term demands legal obligations from the government. As far as I know, those who serve in in Guard or Reserves, but are not activated for service other than training are not considered to be veterans. The exception is those who served at least 20 years. The VA says he was a veteran so I guess he was. I am not calling him out. It is just a kind of weird topic when it comes to Guard and Reserves.

I agree that being a veteran or war hero does not make someone a great president. Hell Grant for on was one of our greatest war heroes and a poor president. But I stand by my opinion that when we stopped favoring veterans and went for Clinton and Obama types, it was not to our good.
As to your comment about NG/Reserve, well, that's a slap in the face,
given how many Guard and Reservists were activated for Desert
Shield/Storm and beyond. And NG/Reserve personnel absolutely get
DD-214s and are absolutely considered veterans.
My comment about the NG/reserve was a slap in the face to no one. I stated a fact that those who serve in the NG/Reserve and are NOT activated (for I think 180 days) other than for training are not considered veterans by this nation. I did not say that my opinion was they are not veterans, I stated a fact that this country does not consider them Veterans for benefits purposes. I am well aware that NG units served in combat. Hell the famous unit from Saving Private Ryans, the 29th division was NG and is still to this day.

The requirements for veteran status for guard and reserves is to have been activated for service other than training for I believe 180 days, or serving for 20 years. I made no comment about this requirement whatsoever. I personally find it odd that someone can serve in the reserves for 19 years and not be considered a veteran while someone can serve on active duty for a 2 year hitch and be a veteran even if they never saw combat. These days there are lots of wars but in the late 70s through the 90s, not so much.

There are tons of links on the web if you want to research the subject. He is just one.

564 true story:

i served in the CA ARNG and USAR for a total of 20 years, 22 months, and some very odd days.

TIS was 83-03.

it took until 2006 to convince the CA ARNG that i had 20 good years, and deserved retirement, eventually.

it took until 2016 to convince the VA that i was a veteran, entitled to care for my service connected injuries, due to the 181 day rule they (services and VA) have for determining "veteran" status.

it's a FUBAR system and, it would seem, designed to be that way.

which makes Congress the villain.

568 "But I stand by my opinion that when we stopped favoring veterans and went for Clinton and Obama types, it was not to our good." And you undermine your very own argument, especially by citing Grant, which I didn't even do, but could of.

By your own logic, we should all be aching to vote for Buttygig. Buttygig hates the country, is a Maoist (given his penchant for wanting to airbrush people from history he doesn't like, like TJ), and believes we are all better off if America has a government with absolutely unlimited power with him, of course, at the top. His beliefs as professed in word and deed on the campaign trail indicates that when he took his commissioning oath, he did indeed do so WITH mental reservation and purpose of evasion, and he had NO intention of supporting and defending the document he swore to support and defend.

But no matter. Buttygig is a veteran so we all need to vote for him. Right?

you seem to be looking for a fight. The problem is I am not. I will answer you for the others who read here. My point was that I think we were a better nation when we favored military veterans. You can see that a long line of presidents after the Civil War pretty much had to be vets. The same thing happened after World War 2.

In general we were a better nation in my opinion when we lauded national service and had a national pride. Though GWHB had many issues, his background vs Clinton could not have been more stark. The nation made the choice, in part, to forget the war hero stuff and go with the boomer lefty. I think we would have been better off with Bush and even Dole. But for me, it is more a comment on the nation's values than on the individuals who ran. We once valued military service more and more people cared about it than they do now. Sure, part of that was a reflection of the time. There was a time when more served than today. Today those that serve are a tiny percentage of the populace.

I support liberty minded small government types politically. I am not going to vote for a vet who is a socialist statist. But we were a better nation imo when we put foward national heroes vs community organizers. YMMV.

She is just a real life video of everyone on the left. Everything they touch is nudged, manipulated, adjusted, or fucked with to create their idea of fairness.



True, but this is more insidious. Google owns most of the search traffic, and they have created a department of people that eliminate videos they disagree with politically (PragerU? really?) and manually manipulate search results, and later incorporating that manipulation into their own AI.

The video tells of the biased choices they make, which are what we would expect are against making conservatives look good in any way.

They give an example of Hillary email search results - surprise! - they don't come up.

They are actively acting as a publisher, when they claim to be instead a platform.

Congress has to act (yeah, right) or any semblance of open and free speech will be history.

Google is truly evil.

Chicago PD Releasing Video From Jussie Smollett Fake Hate Crime Hoax

The video released so far features race arsonist/narcissist Jussie Smollett still wearing the "noose" around his neck, long after the "attack."




This next video is so bizarre I don't know if it's real, a prank, or some kind of mistake.

Supposedly, this video shows the Nigerian brothers in a cab on the way to the attack.

Dressed... inconspicuously. Like they imagine Trump voters dress, I guess.

But if this is real... why is the tax driver also dressed in a white Hazmat suit?

I am very doubtful of this but it's so bizarre I'd be derelict if I didn't post it.



Is there something about Chicago I don't know about?

Answer, from lurker (the other one):

Not a hazmat suit. The vehicle interior camera is partially in IR wavelengths - black clothing, for example, often shows up white.

I wondered about that, but the street light outside the car looks natural (a sort of sodium yellow) so I didn't think it was false color. But this makes a lot of sense.

Frankly, not really relevant. How long would it take a gallon of water to freeze, even in that temperature? Even in a stiff wind (more convection) I'm guessing it would take a few hours. Imagine if you put a gallon of water in your freezer. How long would it take to freeze? I'm guessing a long time, since the water has a whacking great heat capacity, and the air circulating around it has very little heat capacity.

And if the clowns had the bottle anywhere near their bodies, it would take even longer.

I think he was put up to it. As we saw when he threw his Bleach Friends under the bus, Jussie lacks even the low moral integrity of the common criminal... if a serious prosecutor gets up in his grille, he'll pop like an egg in a microwave inside of two hours of questioning, and we'll find out who who it was.
