The Morning Report - 11/19/19

goebpals.jpg

Good morning kids. Another day and another star witness who's going to blow this thing wide open and nail Trump. This time it's some career foreign service tool named David Holmes, the political officer at the US embassy in Ukraine who claimed to have overheard a phone call between Trump and ambassador Gordon Sondland the day after the crucial conversation between Presidents Trump and Zelensky that's at the heart of the drive to impeach. Aside from the fact that Holmes is yet another bureaucratic cog in the Deep State tyrannical machine, that he hates Trump and his foreign policy, and that his so-called damning evidence is based on copious notes he took of his colleagues remarks about the Presidents' call, he himself did not hear the call and in fact had been drinking when he heard the conversation between Trump and Sondland. Considering the fact that he offers nothing new, had been drinking and that the transcript of the call that got all this crap going has been released and is indeed "a perfect call," there is no there there.

But still they persist. Nancy Palsi, Schiff-for-Brains and the entire Democrat-Left-Media Complex is going to go full steam ahead for the next 51 weeks, despite the fact that it will absolutely destroy whatever illusion of a functioning political process America once might have had and permanently damage any chance of uniting what is now a deeply divided citizenry. No matter what the media claims, this is not playing at all well in Peoria. So tone deaf in their arrogance and haughtiness are the Dems that they think the American people are just too fucking stupid and inbred to understand quid pro quo, and are using focus groups to try and come up with simpler words for us filthy knuckle-dragging rubes to comprehend, like bribery and abuse of power. It doesn't matter what they call it; the American people by and large are not only not buying it but are coming to the conclusion that this entire thing is engineered as a means to persecute and illegally oust Trump. Some have even said, look, we're less than a year out from the election, so why not just let the people decide. This is where Palsi let's the strings holding up her face slip where she reveals much not only about how they feel about this election but how the Globalist so-called "elite" look upon their entitlement to power. We cannot take a chance on ignorant masses going against us like they did in 2016 (and '80 and '84 for that matter). It also not so subtly confirms what we have long suspected, insofar as elections, at least on a national level and sometimes at a state level are and have been a rigged game.

Other than that, the other major development is that Trump is hinting that he might agree to testify in the investigation. Like so many times before, I think he is calculating yet again to maneuver the Dems into another trap. Stay tuned.

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.

39 President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he told U.S. President Donald Trump during talks in Washington last week that Turkey would not give up on the Russian S-400 missile defence systems it procured this year despite protests from its NATO ally.



Speaking to members of his AK Party in parliament, Erdogan also said he had told Trump that if the United States maintained its "uncompromising


stance" on the F-35s, Turkey would have to seek alternatives to meet its medium-term defence needs.

So that makes them more legitimate than the actual transcripts.

102 I have a serious question for the Horde.

Last night Rusty Nail and Chi-town Jerry made a case that the election is pretty much over, and Trump will lose.

The argument is that the slow drip drip of impeachment and negative media has already poisoned the well, and that the urbans and suburban wine moms are going to ensure he loses. Couple this with the fact that the Dems will ratchet up the fraud machine next year, and there is a solid case for this to be correct.

My argument against is looking at job approval as a stand in for voter support and seeing an average in RCP of 44%. In 2016, Trump had a core base of 42% that could not be moved from him regardless of what was said. If this number moved into the 30%, then I would agree with the Eeoyre analysis.

But let's take it as a given that Trump will lose, that nothing can be done to change that. Right now Iowa has Buttigieg leading Iowa, Warren leading NH, and Biden leading NV and SC. Assuming that Biden falters, that probably means we will have President Warren. The above mentioned wine moms are going all in for the first woman president.

So how do you wargame surviving a Warren administration? Obviously the first order of business is to move money out of stock and into bonds, since the economy is going to tank on the threat of reversing tax reform.

But then there is her threat of a wealth tax. How do you protect your retirement savings from outright theft by the government?

And lastly there is the question of timing. When do you start making financial moves? When Warren looks likely to win the nomination? After the conventions? Or wait until after the election?

What are your thoughts on surviving Queen Socialist?

And if floors are slippery straight people can fall down the same way gays do.So stupid. They shouldn't be a special class because of who they sleep with.

123 I read that article last night on the 19-year old ex-tranny. It's impossible to imagine just what is happening to this young generation as they are constantly assaulted with pro-tranny imagery and support. They are being sold this bill of goods that says all their troubles will go away if they just give in to this totally 'normal' process of chopping off their body parts and taking very dangerous hormones. From an adult's viewpoint, it's absolute, sheer madness witnessing this full-throttle push getting these kids to buy this horrendous lie. I think a lot of kids are obviously jumping on this bandwagon because it's a fad (demonic and destructive as it is), but there are also a lot of very vulnerable young people out there who are being told it's a ticket to happiness. These are kids struggling with abuse at home, struggling with their identities (not unlike any teenager) and are being talked into this hideous process by very nefarious people. No slowing down, no introspection and analysis as to why they feel trans, nothing but push push push onto the operating table. The consequences are going to be terrible for 1000s of young people who are, unfortunately, being brought up at a time when this lunacy is being promoted as a miracle cure to all that ails them. It's unconscionable. Simply unconscionable.

I believe the majority of the money that the US sent was funneled through the EU and what the Mullahs actually received were untraceable Euros.



President Barack Obama approved the $400 million transfer, which he had announced in January as part of the Iran nuclear deal.
The money was flown into Iran on wooden pallets stacked with Swiss francs, euros and other currencies as the first installment of
a $1.7 billion settlement resolving claims at an international tribunal at The Hague over a failed arms deal under the time of the Shah.

CFA also decided to make shorter commitments rather than their usual two-year.

Shortened commitments mean that risks go up and thus the same money does less because many of the advantages of long-term planning are erased.

176 You want to put pressure on corporate CFA, go after their franchisees as they are more accessible and have more to lose from corporate wokeness. Suggest that they have fundraisers for FCA and the Salvation Army as recompense for corporate.

Leftists always go for the top to pressure because they figure the top will pay them off and/or capitulate to demands to get "peace". Conservatives would be better served to apply pressure to the local CFA's which will then go to the top. Franchisees have reasons to support their local communities and charities while corporate is chasing dreams of future profits in foreign and unfavorable lands.

Ultimately, that places corporate in a very difficult position as it can't easily repudiate its own franchisees without really running into problems. Unhappy franchisees often result in declining sales.

They're left with deep mental scars, deep physical scars, and deep regret. I have little sympathy for the fad jumper-on'ers...but those with true mental illness from whatever their struggles might be who are lullabied into this craziness by what is becoming an enormous Trans Lobby make my heart hurt.

189 Leftists always go for the top to pressure because they figure the top will pay them off and/or capitulate to demands to get "peace".

Understand that this is the CFA Foundation. CFA Foundation is all about spending money, not on earning it. For that reason, the hiring profile is much different for a non-profit Foundation than it is for a profit-earning business entity.

On top of that, Leftists hate profit, but are also highly attracted to money, and huge quantities of money that can be spent emotionally rather than practically is a very powerful magnet.

Leftists are attracted to money to be spent on causes. CFA-Foundation is exactly that entity. Leftists have infiltrated CFA-Foundation because EEOC regs pretty much remove any filters.

It goes to rot, as all other Foundations have demonstrated. Even the NRA has gone to rot because of the model.

You probably need to re-read the posts. Everything from lamenting the decision to speculating why, to projecting the future.

I don't believe that I'm seeing this "Spend it this way or I will sever our business relationship".

The closest to that sentiment is me, where I say that the previous position was a motivating factor in choosing CFA over a competitor. CFA has simply stated that they want to destroy that advantage and now we all speculate on the response.

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

Now that I’m all healed from the surgeries, I regret them. The result of the bottom surgery looks like a Frankenstein hack job at best, and that got me thinking critically about myself. I had turned myself into a plastic-surgery facsimile of a woman, but I knew I still wasn’t one. I became (and to an extent, still feel) deeply depressed. Nathaniel (Last Name Withheld)


Quote II

“The industry as a whole is focused on creating a menu of CUAS sensor options that can be adapted to different use cases and price points,” “As the threat outpaces government responsiveness and legislative decision making, drone threats and less conventional countermeasures will continue to be an issue.”Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense Company


Quote III

“It was a convenient place to stay. I mean I’ve gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day, with a benefit of all the hindsight that one can have, it was definitely the wrong thing to do.

“But at the time I felt it was the honourable and right thing to do and I admit fully that my judgement was probably coloured by my tendency to be too honourable but that’s just the way it is.”Prince Andrew


Quote IV

“When there is a tension, we want to make sure we’re being clear. We think this is going to be helpful,” Tassopoulos said of the company’s decision to pull its support from the charities. “It’s just the right thing to do: to be clear, caring, and supportive and do it in the community.” Tim Tassopoulos

Does Burger King have the balls to say, "Fuck You Vegans". Time will tell.

(NEWSER) – Burger King has been hit with a class-action lawsuit arguing that the chain's Impossible Burger isn't the vegan sandwich it's advertised to be, because it's typically cooked on the same grills as meat. That means the Impossible comes with meat residue, which the menu doesn't mention, in at least some locations. Phillip Williams wants damages after ordering the vegan alternative in Atlanta, TMZ reports, and he wants the chain to cook vegan and meat burgers on separate grills. Burger King had revealed in fine print over the summer that all burgers would be grilled in the same broilers.

The suit was filed Monday in federal court in Florida, per the New York Post, which notes that the chain says in a footnote on its menu online, "For guests looking for a meat-free option, a non-broiler method of preparation is available upon request." A company spokesman declined to comment on the suit, which was filed on behalf of several other vegans. One customer tweeted that she asked for her Impossible Burger to be cooked in its own pan or grill only to be told, "We don't do that here." Another posted that a different location had agreed to cook separately. (McDonald's is testing its own meatless burger.


Phillip Williams must be a sad individual.

She hasn't been in office that long and the sleaze is already dripping off of her.

ATLANTA – The two luxury GMC Denalis used to chauffeur Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms around town were purchased for a combined $175,000 without the apparent authorization of Atlanta City Council. The city had designated the money for police vehicles used by patrol officers and detectives, reported AJC.

City Council approved $2.6 million for 91 new police vehicles in the summer of 2017. However, according to the AJC report, the Denalis for the mayor’s use were not on the list of vehicles to be purchased in the approved ordinance.

Nevertheless, the city finance department used money for the Denalis from those funds after Bottoms was sworn into office in January, 2018. The AJC report did not include a response from the mayor’s office.

I am not surprised or shocked. Tenured Ivy League prof endorses terrorism against Israel.

A tenured Columbia University professor endorsed terrorism in a speech given at the Palestine Center late last week.

"The Oslo Accords inaugurated this process of liquidating the Palestinian national struggle while the 'Deal of the Century' plans and hopes to conclude it," Professor Joseph Massad said. "The only thing standing in its way is the ongoing Palestinian resistance to Israel, settler colonialism and racism that continues inside Israel and Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza; the ongoing Marches of Return in Gaza; and the armed-resistance of the Izz al-Din Qassam Brigades to Israeli invasions in Gaza."

Former Vice President Joe "Paste Eatin'" Biden has found a group of people he won't pander to. It looks like Biden won't support legalization of marijuana.

Former Vice President Joe Biden says he is not prepared to support ending the federal ban on marijuana until science clarifies "whether or not it is a gateway drug." Taking him at his word, that means Biden, a leading contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, will never support marijuana legalization.

During a town hall in Las Vegas on Saturday, Biden said states should be free to legalize marijuana but once again reserved judgment about whether national prohibition should be repealed. "The truth of the matter is, there's not nearly been enough evidence that has been acquired as to whether or not it is a gateway drug," he said. "It's a debate, and I want a lot more before I legalize it nationally. I want to make sure we know a lot more about the science behind it….It is not irrational to do more scientific investigation to determine, which we have not done significantly enough, whether or not there are any things that relate to whether it's a gateway drug or not."


Speaking of Joe Biden and gateway drugs. What was Hunter Biden's gateway drug? Hypocrisy? His old man was his dealer.

Joe Biden, whose own kid somehow managed to avoid arrest and imprisonment for his cocaine habit in the Navy, is out condemning President Trump for pardoning a few military small fry whose draconian sentences didn't match the "crimes" they were convicted of.

He's a man perhaps best known for trolling his wife and her boss on Twitter, to the endless delight of his new political allies, and now he's expanding his blast radius. Reacting to Rep. Elise Stefanik's (R-NY) aggressive questioning of witnesses and other tactics during the House Intelligence Committee's impeachment proceedings last week, George Conway decided to not only urge people to donate to her 2020 opponent, but to add a little bit of color commentary about Stefanik herself, for good measure:

Oh no, not the hose. Genius Award Winners - 1st Runner Up

A couple have admitted common assault on their neighbour by turning a hosepipe on him in a long-running dispute.

Barry and Hellynne Lee, both aged 72, sprayed Harold Burrows with water as he was clearing up debris that washed into his garden from their pathway in June.

Magistrates at Llandudno, Conwy county, were shown footage of the incident which Mr Burrows had caught on camera.

The couple were given a 12-month conditional discharge.

They were also each ordered to pay £170 costs.

The victim, a 28-year-old Lowell man, was airlifted from the scene in Ionia County. His brother, a 29-year-old Saranac man, told police he accidentally shot his brother with a muzzle-loader rifle thinking he was shooting at a deer that had been wounded.

Sheriff’s deputies and Saranac firefighters were dispatched around 5:30 p.m. to a field near Bell Road and West Grand River Avenue in Boston Township where the hunter had been shot.

I know there are a good number of WW1/2 historians here so I have yet another question I should probably know the answer to, but don't. I got the interest reading about WW2 earlier today at other sites, but...

why is it that France fell to the Germans, when obviously England didn't? My hunch is that it's largely because the French armed forces didn't take seriously enough and/or ignored whatever intelligence and advice Churchill and our generals provided them, but hmmm.

150 50, One is the English Channel and then the Brits had radar and some decrypts of Enigma codes by Germans.

Essentially though, the French peaked in readiness to fight prior to Munich conference in 1938. Defeatism though resulted in the opposite of the idiotic "cran" based WWI strategy designed to regain Alsace and Lorraine. Instead, the French spent their money on the Maginot line and then failed to extend it through the Ardennes. The French had probably better overall tanks than the Germans but were deficient in communicating with each other. The French had better or as good airplanes as the Germans but did nothing with them. During the Phony War period when Germans were engaged in Poland, the French could have probably pushed through to the Rhine but sat and did nothing.
This issue was reflected in French politics. The cost of WWI was so great in man and material that it resulted in a permanent split in politics during the Third Republic.

Essentially, the French were fighting a ferocious battle of Left v. Right in politics which led to dismal patronage politics over which generals would command and who would be defense minister. The government itself had a breakdown on the eve of Hitler's invasion of France with the Premier blasting the incompetent Gen. Gamelin and his patron defense minister (who hoped to supplant the Premier via this gambit) threatened to resign in support of Gamelin, Gamelin threatened to resign, then the Premier felt that he must resign too. The invasion of the Germans made them attempt to work together but there was not really the concerted effort as in 1914 to save La Belle France from ravishment by the Germans this time.

As one person put it, the sons of the dedicated fighters in 1914 made a different choice in 1940, they preferred to live. Political leaders can only do so much with that attitude and the split between Left and Right resulted in many of the right preferring the Germans than their own countrymen.

157 If that Japanese sub performs to specs, then you can be confident that there's all kids of pant-shitting going on in the People's Liberation Army Navy.

Which branch, I hasten to point out, doesn't have an exactly sterling record as to it's "return to pier percentage" with IT'S subs.

And while I'm not any kind of an expert in sonar or undersea acoustics, I'd imagine that a Chinese sub is projecting it's own Heavy Metal concert soundwaves through the hull on a constant basis.

The Chinese understand that the U.S. has a plethora of VERY quiet nuke subs, but they also understand that we're playing Realpolotik and Globalpolitik, and really don't want to "rock the boat" with things going hot beneath the waves.

Japan though? NO love lost between those two, to say the least.

And even after seventy years of enforced pacifism, I'd put a lot down on a bet, that Japan will *not* prove to be a Nation to be Fucked With, especially as regards a hostile Chinese incursion into their waters.

One thing WWII absolutely proved. Those bastards DO know how to fight.

I had occasion to hear of a case this week at Nationwide Children's Hosp where a 10 yr old girl is considering having a full hysterectomy and then beginning hormone 'therapy' to transition to a sterile freak.

During the all department meeting on this case the wheels fell off. Oddly enough(!!?), no Psychiatrists were in attendance. The parents are useless as is the little girl. She's 10 FFS. Physically healthy in all respects. There was so much screaming by staff at each other that security showed up and cleared the room.

Case still up in the air AFAIK. Sad.

Life is not too short for this. It wasn't the excellence of their chicken that made them the number three fast food chain. They are where they are because they didn't cave and we honored that with our dollars. Betrayal from allies is far worse than honest attacks from a forthright enemy.

Appreciate your perspective, but if there is no pushback, all corporations will end up being woke, which is just part of the push to make it effectively impossible to openly state your political views and continue to be a part of society.

Chick-fil-A had very successfully shown that you could ignore a"woke" cultural boycott, and doing very well.

312 Their caving is not a small thing.

The Left frequently reprints an cartoon by XKCD that states that while you have freedom of speech, you have to accept the consequences - in other words, the possible loss of your job, the possible destruction of your business, the possible loss of access to banking and financial services, et.al. It''s like saying that you have freedom of speech in East Germany, but you have to accept being arrested by the Stasi.

And we've only just started heading down this road - the University of California has started demanding loyalty oaths for new faculty members pledging their commitment to "diversity". Imagine having to sign one of these documents if you want to open a bank account - and that is definitely coming if the Left triumphs.

And without pushback, they will win.

346 But Chick Fil A did NOT choose to avoid politics. I agree that you shouldn't go through life trying to figure out who you do business with is left or right. In music and entertainment alone, most of on the left.

But Chick Fil A knew they were sticking it to their customer base, they knew this. If they don't even get the slightest backlash, even for a couple weeks, then they will be encouraged to please the potential customers who DO care about their politics. The Left is all politics all the time. And they have yet to love a corporation from woke to unwoke. It only goes one way.

Everyone goes their own way, that is my philosohpy and I think the first idea I pushed here. But their chicken sandwiches are not THAT good. I would suggest dropping them for a couple weeks and see how they respond. Heck, no one has mentioned this, but I would not be surprised if there is some employee turnover over this.

I don't think they are going to reverse course. They have their sights set on Europe for some reason. Pretty dumb in my opinion. They could have remained unwoke and had no issues in Latin America, China, the ME, etc. But they want that Europe is my guess. And they want that San Antonio airport.

Most people think that the tide didn't turn until the Battle of Stalingrad, and the Lend-Lease equipment was definitely flowing by then. In fact, that was a big factor in the Germans heading toward Stalingrad in the first place. Another was to cut off the Soviet oil supply.

At the time, the Germans still held all of Poland, all of Ukraine, the Baltics, Belarus, and were still camped right outside Leningrad.

Timeline needs tweaking. In retrospect, the German defeats towards the end of '42 look pretty inevitable - bit off much more than they could chew with Case Blue in the south. But at the time, not many were breathing *that* easy in Moscow. Glanz probably is close with his take: after Stalingrad, it was clear Germany would not win in the east, and after Kursk, it was clear the Soviets would win on their terms.


And tomorrow, fittingly, is the 77th anniversary of the launch of Operation Uranus [annihilation of the 6th Army at Stalingrad].

Chick-fil-A had made "multiyear commitments" to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes that ended in 2018, a company spokeswoman said. Now, she said, the company plans to give to "a smaller number of organizations working exclusively in the areas of hunger, homelessness and education."

Of course, but the offensive power of the German army had been severely weakened.

That was one of the themes of Vassily Grossman's great novel Life and Fate - up through the summer of 1942, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union thought that they might lose, and so was focused entirely on winning the war. Starting in the fall of 1942, it became obvious that the USSR probably wasn't going to lose, so the CPSU started focusing on regaining societal control, even at the cost of weakening the war effort.

It doesn't matter. I personally think their food is mediocre. It is just a chicken breast and it is fast food. There is no FF joint I can't live without. But I can cook.

497 By Stalingrad the Russians were sending in any old man, woman, or kid who could carry a gun.

Not true, actually - there were 170 million people in the USSR in 1937, so about 17 million males of prime military age. The Red Army + casualties at that time was a fraction of that, even discounting people in areas occupied by the Germans. The problem at Stalingrad, initially, was shortage of weapons.

The old men, women, and kids were engaged in military production and keeping a subsistence civilian economy going.

You know who generally makes the best Mexican food, hands down?



Mexicans.

Seriously, all the chains in the Puget Sound area were started by one Mexican family about 50 years ago, and after disagreements, that family broke up and now have maybe 4 multi-store businesses. And also a couple of single stores, started by members of the same family. One is my go-to, about 15 minutes from where I live.

Of course, now there are also some Mexican restaurants that have opened up in the last decade or so around here, and have some very imaginative, delicious Mexican food as well, albeit maybe a third more in cost.

But the key concept here is good Mexican food is made by good Mexican cooks.

And the Margaritas are pretty doggone good, too.

511 Frankly, I have no problem with most vegans. They will eventually either come to realize through reading or actual experience that being Vegan is detrimental to one's health and any others in their family that they force into being one. Thus they will either die (at one extreme) or become weak and ineffectual (at the other extreme) and to me that's all to the good because generally they also have opinions that are inimicable to mine and are a danger to the future of my country.

I through poor habits became a semi vegan and was brought to my senses by my experience. It was brought home even more clearly when I made myself spend the money to eat Beef more frequently and found the benefit to be astounding in its speed and positive result.

Let the vegans have their ill health and weakness. Just don't let them force it on anyone else.

I'm not a chicken person much, but that shit was really good. The staff was on the ball, no real slackers, mature like, and I was impressed. I went 2 more times. The place was packed, a real gold mine, and the cruise night they have was really good. The muscle car dudes are usually trump guys. I'm really curious what happens next season.

577 Was just at the hospital Sunday to visit a friend, who was back in after extensive open heart surgery about six weeks ago.

He has had a problem with healing, and some uncertainty about bacterial infection. They sliced out some flesh and have a large bandage with a vacuum pump installed to pull fluids out.

After his surgery, he became a zealous 'Ornish Diet'
( https://tinyurl.com/v99jf2y )fan. The guy has been toting around a jar of fat-free salad dressing for his salads. I expressed grave concerns about the diet, particularly relative to protein, but, he is/was convinced.

So, now he's back in the hospital. I'm looking at what they are feeding him, and pick up a bottle of protein drink which they have provided. Reading the label, '26% Saturated Fat'.

I point this out. He's shocked. I am not. Need I point out that his primary dietary guide is the internet?

The French knew the Germans were likely to invade through the low countries. They had a treaty with Belgium which had French troops rushing north into pre-positioned static defenses in Belgium when it happened. Between France and Belgium, the plan went, the Germans could be held.

Then in 1938 (I think) the Belgians decided, very publicly, they didn't want the next Great War fought on their territory and told the French the deal was off. The French were desperately moving to fortify their border but they ran out of time. The Belgians really screwed them.

Speaking of radios, I opened up an old radio today. It is a Radiomobile (Smiths of England) model 22X. It was installed in this Panhard I'm working on, but obviously not a factory install. Damned thing is insanely heavy for a compact car radio. So I took out about 20 small screws to remove the cover, and discovered it's a tube radio, with a vibrator power supply. There's the weight: vibrator, vibrator transformer, and output transformer. Only three tubes, but they are all dual-function types.

But the doggone thing was packed full of fuzz. The rear end of the radio stuck into the cowl area of the car, which the silly Frenchmen insulated with big batts of yellow fiberglass. And the mice got into that, and built a big nest on top of the radio, and little bits of that insulation, plus mouse turds, filtered down into the radio through the perforated cover plate. It was about packed solid. And the mouse pee rusted the cover, and some of the innards, too.

The boat was towed to shore and drydocked in Portsmouth; on 15 November she was decommissioned. Less than a year later, on 15 May 1940, the boat was recommissioned as USS SAILFISH (her hull number remained the same). SQUALUS’s name did live on, however, despite the wartime commanding officer’s best efforts. He issued standing orders that the boat’s former name should not be spoken; any man who disobeyed would, he decreed, be marooned at the next port of call. The crew responded by referring to their boat as “SQUAILFISH.” The captain, now well and truly annoyed, threatened court martial for anyone heard using the term.

I suspect that the mower deck has three small blades, each about 15 inches long. So you have three (smaller) torque reactions, on 3 separate axes, so there is some cancellation going on. Plus the drag from the wheels.

A 4 banger Toyota Camry off the lot gets more HP than a "high output" V8 from the mid 70s to the mid 80s. That period was a nadir for the American car industry.

Back in the day I had a 1968 roadrunner with a roller cammed 12.5:1 compression 650 HP 383 4 speed done to the hilt with a 513 dana rear with Strange axles....on drum brakes. The car scared the frigging shit out of me. I took it apart and scattered it to the 4 winds so nobody died in it, namely me. It was a death sled, the person I would have sold it to would have surely died in it. The one I got now has radials, updated suspension and disk brakes in the front. Way less scarier.

I love mine! Seriously, the only ones to get are the "Premium" pillows, with 5 different sizes. Website only, at least it was. The ones in stores are the "Standard" ones, with a lot less fill, one size fits almost nobody.

Their website has the details. I am a big guy, and use the Blue one. I think it was white, red, green, blue, and red. It is the quantity of fill that corresponds to your size of shoulders and the position you usually sleep in.

The red one has to be for NFL linemen.

710 Perspective.

I manage a small fleet of Shuttle vans and buses, which includes a trio of 2015 Ford Transit, mid-height, passenger fans.

With all seating rows in place, that's fourteen passengers plus the driver.

And a 12' enclosed Cargomaster trailer, to carry all of their considerable luggage to the cruise ship, of course.

Lot of weight there.

Ford 3.5 liter Twin Turbo Eco-Boos engine.

375 hp, 410 ft. lb. torque.

Fully laden with NFL type passengers, and luggage loaded to the roof in the trailer?

Yeah, merge into traffic wherever you want.

Houston Ship Channel Bridge? Galveston Causeway?

It'll only downshift if other traffic had you slowed down to far in the first place. But if you were already rolling at the posted limit, it'll just PULL up those grades, like they weren't even there.

Unladen, it's damn near sports car handling.

Full up? Uh, No... SLOW DOWN before that curve, m'kay?

The brakes absolutely kick ass for the most part. Stop n' go traffic, no problem.

But one OMG from 70 mph, and you'd best let 'em cool off a bit before you need to do that again.

Good decision making is how I evaluate our new drivers. And about 1/3 of the "trainees", I tell the boss not to hire.

She does not like my rate, but does not argue with my calls.

Because I put 'em in writing, and if anything bad were to happen with those drivers, my notes go into evidence.

Biggest thing I have to work with on new drivers, is treating that gas pedal with the respect it demands. Otherwise, it'll sneak up on 'em and overpower 'em.

Figuratively, AND literally.

Fortunately they do make some nice updates for them these days. I completely redid the entire under side of the car this past year. If you could unbolt it, it got changed. New upper control arms, I rebuilt the lowers and torque boxed them, C body tie rod ends with the 11/16 adjuster threads over the normal 9/16 B body threads. All Moog, every last frigging steering part and bushings. I did hemi springs in the rear with the hemi reinforcement plates on the spring perches, 1.03 torsion bars, KYB shocks and disk brakes. It drives like a dream, miles ahead of the 3 others I had years ago. Night and day. The ones I had years ago you had to point and hope the hell there were no curves. lol

Aah. But see that's the thing. The goal of the hired guns that get stuck on these corporate boards never really is to appease the alleged offended. It's to destroy the soul of the business.

CFA has unrivaled growth inside their industry. No one could rationally view their success and say "we need a quantum cultural shift". Which means the real reason for the shift isn't for business reasons, it's because they want to gut the Christian out of the business.

Now they are just overpriced nuggets. Before they were overpriced nuggets you could support because of their core cultural standards.

Eighteen days later:

Contra Costa County prosecutors decided Monday against filing charges at this time against anyone in the Halloween shooting in Orinda that left five dead.

Five suspects were arrested Thursday after authorities served search warrants in San Mateo, Marin City, Vallejo and Antioch. Four people were arrested on suspicion of homicide and conspiracy and one was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory.

Before my mom passed a couple of weeks ago, her assisted living place had a lot of events, to entertain the residents, and something interesting to get visitors.

Each year, they did a big BBQ / feed, and many of their kids-grandkids attended. The Pierce County Model A club would show up each year, with maybe a dozen or so completely restored Model A's and Model T's.

It was quite entertaining, they gave rides if one wanted to take one. Being a big guy, it wasn't easy to even get inside. But they looked cool, and the owners were fun to talk with.

733 It's Gavin's World now!

Meanwhile, it's been more than a month since an Antifa "activist" was hit by an SUV filled with people near the Antifa bar in Portland, allegedly after a drunken argument, as at least one of the activist's friends repeatedly fired a handgun into the SUV.

No arrests. No sign of the people in the SUV, who fled the scene.

One gets the distinct impression that the powers-that-be in Portland have decided that the facts of the homicide are sufficiently embarrassing that no investigation is warranted.

But looking at the illegal, irresponsible, outrageous, unprecedented behavior of so many pathetic mediocrities since Trump came in, it's just blended into the Third World corrupt background that has now replaced what used to be a country with some quality and integrity.


And these dimwits had actual important jobs anywhere within a million miles of national security?

Posted by: Anna Puma at November 19, 2019 12:43 AM (bfAee)

It's old tech, dates back to early 30's, at least. Vacuum tubes want 100+ volts on their plates, if they are going to put out. How to get 200 volts from a 12 volt supply? We'll use a transformer! But transformers only transform AC. OK, we will make the current alternate, which is what the vibrator does. Vibrator is just a reed, weighted at the end, driven by an electro-mechanical "buzzer" arrangement. Reed also carries contacts that alternately feed current to either end of the center-tapped primary of the vibrator transformer, creating square-wave AC at about 400 Hz. Transformer boosts it up to 200-odd volts, it goes through a rectifier (selenium in this case) and filter, and is made available to the circuit.

Inverter. In contemporary pieces (say, 12V -> 110VAC) the switching is done via oscillator circuit and transistors, rather than a mechanical vibrator. If one has an UPS for their computer, that's how it works.

Upped the standard 1600 Dual Port to a double carb, bag o' snakes, Bosch 009 distributor, FRAM intake'd power monster.

Must've made at least eighty, ninety horsepower, minimum!

And given the tech at the time, that ensured that I would easily "keep up with traffic" in any scenario short of the dragstrip.

Were I to win a substantial lottery even now, the first car I would commission anew, would be a full-on, to the max, Resto Mod of a '72 Super Beetle.

And I'd fail, but it would be fun trying!

And thereby hangs a tale. In the early days of transistors, they had trouble making them amplify or oscillate reliably at radio frequencies, and the few that did were very expensive. And the tube manufacturers were not giving up without a fight. They introduced "space-charge" tubes that functioned just fine with only 12 volts on their plates. So, for a short span of time, you had "hybrid" car radios. No vibrator, no transformer, no rectifier tube, just 4 or 5 small-signal tubes, and one big power transistor for the audio output stage. These radios never were very good. The 12-volt tubes were not nearly as sensitive as their predecessors, and failed to bring in weak signals. Strong local stations were OK. And the germanium power transistors of the day were very picky about bias resistors and speaker impedance. Audio distortion was common.

This is true. Discs are much better for sustained/repeated high-effort braking.

I can get kits to put 4-wheel discs on any later-model Studebaker, but actually going with disc front/drum rear gets you most of the fade resistance for a lot less trouble and dollars. Maybe 4-wheel discs if also going for high-output engine, and chassis upgrades, too.

Tell us what's on your Make a Wish list.

You never know, there might be a Lurker or three, or a Moron or Five, or an 'Ette or more...

Odds are even at least, that you'll get to punch a ticket or three on that list.

I'm going to sleep now, Horde.

Would one or some of you overnighters please make sure that this thought carries over to the EMT or J.J.'s post in the a.m.?

I was working one hitch when the producer brought out an underwater film crew to do a commercial showing the sea life around the platform. They flew them out. Should have seen the looks on their faces when we showed them how they were to get from the main deck to the work boat below.

I grew up in Vancouver, B.C., and tug boats are ever-present. They don't push barges like they do on the rivers, they tow them (and log booms) on long cables. Many of the tug boats back in the day were powered by big 2-stroke Detroit Diesels, and they had a unique sound to them.

Doesn't mean they can't be used while stationary, though. Now if that '49 Caddie had been fitted with a record player when new, it would not have been a Goldmark rig, because that didn't come out until 1956. Some really clever custom shop could have mounted one of the little RCA 45 RPM changers in a car, I guess. But they'd have had to replace the AC motor with a DC motor with some sort of speed control.

Having spent the time frame from '99 to '06, living aboard my 30 ft. sloop, the period from '03 to '06 is key to this discussion.

That's when I had moved the boat from Kemah, TX, down to Galveston.

And my marina was but 1/2 mile from the Intercoastal Waterway.

Those barge & tow (pushboat) rigs put some serious sound, right into the water.

The Detroits would always catch my attention, having crewed so many hours aboard major yachts, powered by the same.

Cummins? Yeah, roll over and go back to sleep, thankful that I never had to turn a wrench on another one, evermore.

But once in the wee hours, I rose bolt-upright out of deep sleep.

The sound was unmistakable. Fairbanks-Morse 12 cyl, double action (two stroke) diesel.

Same as powered my Old Man's diesel electric boats in the late '60s, early '70s.

Don't know which towboat was powered by such, but the black gang on board of that one EARNED my respect, somewhere between two and four a.m on a cold winter's night.

809 Late to the party, but noticed the Y2K comment above. I always make it a point, having worked through it, to correct the false impression that's become conventional wisdom.

To wit, that it was just BS, turned out to be nothing, etc.

It did turn out be nothing, but that's because many thousands of people worked many hundreds of thousand of hours, just to get that result.

Pretty much all the horror scenarios that were described were real possibilities: power grids down, hospitals down, banking system down, etc.


Every piece of machinery or electronics that accepted as input, depended on, or output a date, and likewise every computer program, was a possible failure point. And every company in the country, or world, had to check every one of those things and then either fix or replace it if it was vulnerable.

And they did, and they did a damned good job of it.

823 Good Morning ONT Morons; today is Tuesday, November 19, 2019. On this day in 1863 Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication ceremony for the military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Here is the text of the speech:


Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.


Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I don't know anything about this so-called bru-ha-ha with those people I have never heard of but I have read her book and used to follow her column assiduously. She has never been a racist and an anti-semite. She also never said "the japs deserved to place in camps".

She wrote a book called "In defense of Internment". If you bothered to read the books which she did a lot of research to write what she said was that those so-called camps were only started after numerous Japanese spies were caught on Pacific islands including HI reporting US ship movements.


The only Japanese who were placed in so-called camps were actual Japanese citizens who were here at the time. Most of the Americans of Japanese origins were placed in temporary housing camps away from the coasts with the freedom to come and go at will. The same thing was done with similar German people on the East Coast but nobody ever says a word about them.

Same here, but I've heard it's expansion into Europe. Which is fine, but sadly

"The U.S. fast food chain said that as it expands, it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, the Paul Anderson Youth Home, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which opposes same-sex marriage."

you don't get do-overs in this. Courting customers and building an enormous chain because you push Christian values and then saying "oh, nevermind" isn't a way to endear yourself to lots of customers, and the gays only see it as a victory to continue your destruction until they can wear your skin.

There was a great comment at the link, though.

"Sad commentary on today's society when you get punished for donating to the Salvation Army."

Downside is that it's almost entirely within the great northeast corridor.

Unless you guys are coming westward a little bit, and then down.

Kroger is doing a special. If you spend $25, you can get a turkey for .37 cents/lb
So a 20 lb turkey would cost you $4.70.

904 Interesting developments in the Epstein murder, two prison guards are expected to be indicted this week on falsifying records, they allegedly declined a plea deal to spill the beans, probably a smart move by them lest they have a similar fate of the guy the helped kill.

Another thing I learned is that the noose/ligature/bedding that Epstein allegedly used to hang himself was never collected from the crime scene, never analyzed and was apparently thrown away.

As the Church Lady says, how convenient.

Profit margins in Supermarkets are very low, among the lowest of any retail stores. But that is "overall" profit margins. They will mark some things up so they can mark other down. The average profit on items in a supermarket run between 1 and 3 percent. You have to shop wisely. Stay away from really pricey areas like supermarket delis'

959 "We knew about the administrative state but nothing hinted at what we now know about the Deep State and apparently the Clinton's are the prime controlling authority."

People believed, and some swore, that it existed back in the early '90s. Dismissed as wingnut kooks, there were still reports by folks like the late Chuck Harder and For the People about Mena, etc...the Clinton Body COunt...how the CIA supposedly tied in to Arkansas...how other gov'ts were involved...all of that went beyond the idea of a government by bureaucracy (which has long been evident). It was early hints of the global span, not just one criminal political regime.

Question is, do the shady grifter Clintons still control it? Are they still even players? Or have they gotten so old and self-indulgent they're now relics, or liabilities? Do the true believer global communists like Obama now call the shots?

One thing's for sure, it was global from the start. Even then it clearly went beyond just the Clintons and an administrative state of namless, faceless career bureaucrats.

967 And in a continuing effort to address the soaring murder rate in the city, Baltimore City Council last night voted to pass a plastic bag ban in the city.

I didn't know that plastic bags were a leading weapon used in that city's homicides.

There must be some evidence to suggest that they are.

I mean, with murder being the #1 concern of the city right now, for the Council to take up action against plastic bags as an effort worth taking on...

In other words, that which is truly important, gets addressed.

I marvel at how many movies have as one of the killing scenes someone having a plastic bad pulled over their head. Their arms a flailing around uselessly, and I wonder "why not just go open your mouth and poke a hole in the plastic with your finger?"

Are plastic shopping bags all of that tough? I never seen those bags anywhere near that durable.

33 This will run in section E next to the grocery ads, even Fox News won't report it past day 2, and the shampeachment continues unabated.

They have decided the Trump will resign. That's the memo everyone got and everyone is pushing. So that's the only story we'll get: "When is Trump resigning for his multitude of CRIMES!?!". Actual crimes will not be reported.

Sadly, they know they have the numbers. The INSANE social pressures the left has put upon anyone who supports Trump has broken the GOP in the suburbs. If you have to work in a city with leftists everyday, you've already surrendered on Trump to keep the peace. This is REAL and has happened. That's why there's no fear from the left anymore, no matter how insane they get. They've already made his name mud in enough places that count.

Sorry to Eeyore, but I can't ignore all these special elections anymore. Unless Trump can manage a 180 on the entire narrative surrounding him, he's already toast.

Prior to Barr, I was all in on 3

After Barr I'm placing my bet on 2.

I suppose there's an outside, infinitessimal chance of a referral that matters. Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Yates, Lynch. But this would shock me very much.

There is a zero percent chance that Obama or Clinton will be referred.

Assuming whoever is referred is indicted (a big "maybe") there is also a zero percent chance of conviction.

There should be another 20, especially if they get into the Ukraine arrangements, and the lies to Congress and FBI about all those arrangements.

Barr indicated they were perhaps into the last 10 days of review ... that was a week ago? ... so tick tock ... either that or they will announce ... "before Christmas, this time we swearsies" and it will come out on Christmas Eve .. ruining the holidays.

96 The INSANE social pressures the left has put upon anyone who supports Trump has broken the GOP in the suburbs. If you have to work in a city with leftists everyday, you've already surrendered on Trump to keep the peace. This is REAL and has happened. That's why there's no fear from the left anymore, no matter how insane they get. They've already made his name mud in enough places that count.

Not for me.

Granted, I don't get out much, but I am a loud and proud supporter of Trump, and anyone who bad-mouths him in my hearing gets a fucking earful.

And I live in Massachusetts, so you can imagine.

97 I've heard it would have a lot of criminal referrals, and I've heard "at least a couple". The two might be McCabe, Brennan, Comey, Strzok ... a couple of those. There should be another 20, especially if they get into the Ukraine arrangements, and the lies to Congress and FBI about all those arrangements.

-------

My theory is Strzok. Maybe Page. Maybe Ohr. If -and only if- he was kept tightly siloed, then possibly McCabe.

None of the unstable, self-serving shitweasel hire than that. They are people with no honor, and can't be trusted to keep quiet, and they have direct knowledge of SCOAMF and Thundershart's involvement. IG/AG won't take that risk.

Posted by: Ian S. at November 18, 2019 08:18 PM (6XLoz)

Saying they are open to donating to Christian organizations means not that much to me. Heck, have you seen some of the Christian Organizations out there these days? And did anyone really think they were about to announce they would be open on Sundays?
The question today was about abandoning The Salvation Army and some others over LBGT protests and false claims that these groups are controversial and against gay people. The Salvation Army has commented on twitter and they don't seem to happy about this.

Chick fil A can do what they want. They made a decision and of course they are not going to fan the flames even more. But a lot of people supported them for standing up against the bully Left. They are going to lose a lot of customers.

There Twitter has been peppered by people complaining about this and they have chosen to ignore the responses why still responding to comments about forgotten fries etc. We always here about get woke, go broke. Well, this might be the biggest overnight example I can think of. At least Starbucks and Dicks started with mainly lefty or a political customers. But Chick Fil A has always had a foundation of conservatives and Christians. But you don't have to be Christian to see abandoning the Salvation Army the week before Thanksgiving is going to look bad.

Again, they can do what they want. Most of these companies should focus on providing products and forget the rest. But no way Chick Fil A doesn't face a backlash here. And I have seen nothing to counter the general news of the day that CFA dropped some "controversial Christian" organizations so as to placate the Left. My guess, and it is only a guess, is the bashing they took in the UK recently set this off.

Yes. This is the Left. I saw a clip last year that epitomized them. It was The View waaaayyyyy back when, criticizing something Sarah Palin said about I think Joe Biden. And Behar and company were saying she's terrible, she's awful, she's all these things and it's such a terrible thing to say about Joe Biden (Twitter wasn't around then, but sound familiar?).

So Palin comes out the next day after the storm and basically apologizes and said she was being lighthearted and not to take it all so darn seriously.

So what followed from The View? Were they pleased she backed off of what she said? Were they placated? Did they commend her? No... Behar immediately yells that it proves how weak she is. And a liar.

Want to solve the Iran problem?

Drop a million CFA chicken deluxe sandwiches and boxes of chicken tenders a day into Iran for a week, and make sure there are two million packets of CFA special sauce for each drop.

And then stop.

And then tell them if they overthrow their corrupt leaders and their thug army, the CFA bombings will continue.

First, I point out that they don't believe what they are saying. Because if they did, they would be whispering, afraid of the secret police, rather than screaming at the top of their lungs.

And secondly, I say, if Trump really were the fascist you children pretend he is, you'd be nothing more than smoke up a chimney right this moment.

241 At the 41-minute mark in Barr's speech, hasn't yet gone into detail about the judicial usurpation, my main interest in his remarks. Actually think his discussion of legislative encroachment ended up a bit incoherent, because he refers to the massive de facto delegation by Congress to the admin. state [the executive], but doesn't explain how *that* is erosion of presidential power, when it seems like, potentially at least, an expansion.

244 Unlike 2009, the current protests are leaderless and organic, and thus more difficult to decapitate. "People are angrier and getting angry faster. The regime is already using live bullets, firing into crowds."

This February,

Members of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) have endorsed Iran's membership in the world body's Peacebuilding Commission despite the US pressure.

In their Thursday meeting at the UN headquarters in New York, 35 out of 46 member states of the ECOSOC voted in favour of Iran's membership in the commission.


That's niiiiice. And in March,

Iran Named to UN Women's Rights Commission

which, I suppose, means they will kill women as readily as men when firing into crowds. And back in 2009, they did exactly that when a bullet to the chest took the life of Neda Ahga-Soltan.

Gotta give it to Iran, that's commitment.

I have two first degree connections to Trump. (I have to say I always hated Trump until he started presidenting and surprised me). One is best friend from business school who was on the workout of whichever bankruptcy Trump was going through in 1990. He said Trump was a moron who surrounded himself with sycophants.

The other is one of the rock stars from my dot.com life. He worked for Trump in the aughts. He's taken Trump University off his LinkedIn profile, but kept the Apprentice. I haven't talked to him lately.

Nothing I've thought about him for nearly forty years of knowing him as a tabloid persona has me prepared to believe that he's an evil genius, but he seems to be playing evil genius cards with stunning regularity.

Also the "conservative" rage mob will endorse Handgun Control Inc former spokesman Jake Tapper to moderate a Presidential debate while the progressive rage mob:

https://t.co/Mvr5lab32h

"The Democratic National Committee and the news organization Politico are locked in an argument over the ideological credentials of a proposed moderator for next month's Democratic debate, sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

Politico's decision to push for Alberta has rankled officials at the DNC, as well as some journalists at PBS and even Politico, the sources said. The reason: Alberta previously wrote for National Review, a conservative magazine, and has spent the bulk of his recent career chronicling the Republican Party.

Democratic Party officials say such a journalist is ill-suited to co-moderate a debate meant to better inform Democratic voters about their potential nominees."

The "conservative" rage mob is really bad at this game...

324 If the report is 600 pages or 1000 pages - either way, nothing is going to happen.

The Dems put out long reports full of bullshit precisely to confuse people into not knowing what to believe. Republicans still believe they'll turn in a report that matters.

Might as well turn in a strongly worded letter to the manager. Idiots.

like Patrick Henry said, "Give me convenience or give me death!"

Posted by: bear with asymmetrical balls at November 18, 2019 09:01 PM (H5knJ)

I am not going to do the sour grapes routine. I think chick fil a is decent. But they are not that convenient for me, we have ten times, make that twenty times as many Mcdonalds in our region. Chick Fil A is fine, but it is not earth shattering. I reviewed the Popeyes Sandwich vs Chick Fil A a while back and both had their strong points. The Popeye's sandwich had more pizzaz but it would be hard to eat it all the time.

I guess what I am saying is I can easily live without Chick Fil A. Others will feel differently. It is fine, but not something that will draw me in regardless of other factors.


I admit the Left has done a good job of buttressing companies and entities that piss of conservatives. You don't see TGT, or SBUX or even Dicks collapsing. The car rental companies that turned on 2A supporters seem to still be in business. They were smart, they went all in together so it made it hard to boycott them. Even the Dixie Chicks got a lot of support from the Left when conservatives tuned them out. But no way the Dixie Chicks are as big as they could have been. Some costs don't stand out as they are obscured over time.

But I think CFA is a different matter. They are based in the South. They already have a significant level of support from people who respect their values. I think they will pay a price for this. And to those that say we should wait 48 hours, that is not bad advice. But I have been searching this for many hours now and I am not seeing the fake news. It seems like a legitimate change of policy. And even if we are all wet, so what? It shows them how serious their conservative fan base is about things.

I'm already boycotting Starbucks and Jiffy Lube (the latter for unrelated reasons). The only reason I haven't done the same with Pepsico is the only cheap restaurant reasonably close to work is a Pepsico restaurant (I suppose I could start eating lunch out of the vending machine again, though). I don't see how it's any harder for an ordinary person to boycott these chains than it is to boycott the sell-outs at CFA.

Posted by: TheQuietMan at November 18, 2019 09:26 PM (o3WRR)

340 Been doing some depressing reading for a project recently and I'll be darned that the same partisan divisions keeps coming up again and again in history when republics crumble and with the same precursor behavior being displayed today.

Basically, there ends up being two parties--one is more aristocratic (Moneyed) than the other. Guelphs and Ghillbellines (Florence), populares and optimates (Roman), Green and Blues (Byzantine), Roundheads and Cavaliers (England), Ghirondists and Jacobins (France), the Mensheviks and Bolsheviks (Russia), Democrats and Republicans (U.S. Civil War) and so it goes.

Usually, the aristocrats make up the deficiency in numbers by adopting clients that can be bought by their own purse or the state while the populist parties bear the brunt of the bad behavior of clients of the other party, taxation, and shriveling of commerce.

Eventually, the system breaks down and things get sporty until order is restored because no one dares to leave office and power in order for peaceful transfer of power to occur. Once a party goes down a crime ridden series of events, they cannot afford the cost of justice for the crimes committed. Thus, they try to seize the state and criminalize the opposition. Which leads to the opposition seeking to do it to the original offending party but better.

The good news is that periods of calm lasting for decades can occur, usually though under the enforced peace of a tyrant.

Most
good people do not fight evil and, when pushed, submit to it. Some
good people are able to fight evil to a tremendous degree (e.g. Trump,
patriots and others in various capacities, etc.). And the rest of us
who want to fight, but can't for various reasons (like working our asses
off to be self-sufficient and raise families versus being parasites)
need to support those who are actively fighting evil. [Again, h/t

I'd agree with that. But then what? Prosecutions take time. While all that plays out, the legal fees get covered by Soros or his equivalent. And if a conviction happens, its Federal Tennis Prison until the next Dem Pres springs them all. Im just not seeing a path that changes hearts and minds.

401 The hysterical thing about Chairman 2nd Trombones hearing is that it is pretty much the last day the Senate will be in session and then they close up shop for a month.


The clock has been pretty much been run out on prosecutions, there effectively cannot be any in 2020, that is if anyone is actually indicted.


There have been a slew of people referred for indictment, nobody has actually been indicted and a number have gotten declinations to indict.

407 357, There is a rather stupid business school homily that a corporation must grow or die. But, just like cancer grows really fast, corporate growth will slow, profit will fall, new markets will be more and more marginal in contributing positive cash flow.

Fast food is a perfect example, once you made it to the top, you are already passe and you are running like heck to stay in place with new and more nimble competitors. Strategies get ossified, food quality deteriorates to the mean, and so on. The entrepreneurs usually then sell out at the peak if they are smart or take a tumble if they don't.

It has happened to every food chain that gets big enough so they go looking for global growth. Works for awhile for some and then that sours too.

CFA may take the hit today to sell out for a higher price in the future when they roll out their global strategy. It will happen and eventually the food will be indifferent as the chain becomes too big to manage and settles for mediocrity.

More or less, do not put your trust in princes and even less in a corporation to reflect your values.

If the Salvation Army and FCA was smart, they would put major pressure on the franchisees to have local fundraisers for them at franchises which do have the power to override even the Cathey family. If the Cathey family tries to retaliate against the franchisees for this, they will have major problems.

That gets it into the granular level that the Cathey family is not going to want to play at by raising the costs to corporate of wokeness and also bringing the battle from 40,000 feet to the local level.

Complain to the franchisees and ask them what they are going to do about it as they effectively have a lot more power to influence corporate then individuals do.

i am not calling for a boycott of CFA. I won't be eating there but to each his own. I am calling for helping the Salvation Army score a record holiday season of giving this year. That would stand out and could easily done by those who are pissed about this. Of course include the FCA and the other org that got dumped. I don't get how they can go after those kind older people standing in the cold ringing a bell.

I remember in 2012 when conservatives chose a day to support CFA. It was a lolapalooza. The lines were insane. A lot of people went out of their way to find a location and spend an hour or more in line That was political, it was not about chicken. That is why I am positive they will lose some customers unless the narrative changes drastically. I don't expect it to change. It is going to be just like Enterprise Rent a Car et al a few years ago. You make the decision and live with the fallout. Same with Target. And target did weather the storm if you go by stock price.

CFA *finally* opened a store near me, over in Burbank, literally right across from the NBC studios where they film their national shows.

yeah, they get tons of tourists, but the store is almost always doing land office, not just busy, and the customer base are the local 20-30 somethings who should be woke, and who w*rk in the Industry (they have their badges on) .

the base is also *very* mixed, with all sorts of the local ethnicities mixed in.

this was, from what i can see a TOTALLY unnecessary own goal... if *this* population isn't boycotting CFA, no one is.

477 401, People keep pretending that there is a formal rule against indictments during election years but that is not true. Here are the DOJ formal policy statements governing prosecution: https://preview.tinyurl.com/y2cr63xv 9-27.220 is the relevant passage. What a lot of folks are viewing is the AG Memo that claims that the timing and charges of candidates should not be done for political purposes, Holder did on in 2012, and Bush's last AG did one in 2008. However, AG memos are not formal rules.

That being said, look at what they did to Ted Stevens, he was indicted by the DOJ in July of 2008, convicted in October of 2008, lost his reelection in Nov. 2008, and then had the conviction set aside in April 2009 due to prosecutorial misconduct before--wait for it--Judge Sullivan.

That policy does not apply to indictments of ordinary bureaucrats like Comey, Brennan, etc. because they are supposed to be "apolitical".

Even if Barr were to indict some of the prime movers, it would take around a year to go to trial, so you are effectively looking at a theoretical start date for any trial.

496 The way I see it, either it's gonna be a Nothingburger with cheese, and it's been delayed for so long so that it's dressed up to protect against the backlash from our side; or it's going to be absolutely incendiary on stilts and it's been delayed for so long so that it's ironclad against the backlash from the Left.

Understand, it's not that I don't think there's a great deal of dirt to be found-- the Deep State clearly thinks it's their country and the elections are mostly decorative, so it'd be impossible for dirt not to build up in the circumstances, even if people like Obama himself weren't almost certainly involved. But the question in my mind is whether anybody can deal with the personal cost the Deep State will exact on anyone honest enough to find and report it.

But honestly, it's a moot point by now. As others have pointed out, even if they passed out well-evidenced criminal indictments of big-name pols and functionaries the way Oprah passes out surprise gifts, it's not going to successfully go to trial unless Trump holds it in 2020. Otherwise the accused parties will bluster, talk about all this being further proof of Trump being Hitler, and the incoming Dem will make it disappear by hook or crook.

Still everything to play for in 2020, I think. We've lost the element of surprise-- they'll fire up the cheating to maximum, and turn out the illegals to vote in force this time around. They won't leave this one to chance. On the other hand, the Democrats will be going into the election after multiple consecutive years of being honest about how badly they want to screw the country, which I don't think they've ever really been before. That might balance things out a bit.

I guess we'll see, hmm?

Mass Protests Break Out in Iran to Protest Government's Increase in Fuel Prices

Uprising.

"Some people are no doubt worried by this decision ... but sabotage and arson is done by hooligans not our people," the Iranian Supreme Leader said in a live speech on state TV.

Riot police and security forces clashed with demonstrators in Tehran and dozens of other cities on Saturday, Iranian news agencies and social media said, a day after the government increased the price of gasoline.

"The counter-revolution and Iran's enemies have always supported sabotage and breaches of security and continue to do so," Khamenei said. "Unfortunately some problems were caused, a number of people lost their lives and some centres were destroyed."

They shut down -- or "curbed" - - the internet.

Iranian internet access was curbed this week on the orders of a state security council, the semi-official news agency ISNA reported, a move apparently aimed at preventing protesters from communicating with each other and sharing video on social media.

An Iranian dissident says that the Iranian government is afraid.


The protests began last Friday, and before the weekend was over, the Islamic Republic of Iran was in a state of insurrection. Major disturbances have been reported in more than 100 towns and cities across Iran, from Ardabil in the north, on the Caspian Sea, to Bandar Abbas in the south, on the Persian Gulf.

...

Shouting "death to the dictator," hundreds of thousands of protesters have been streaming through the streets of Tehran and Mashad, Tabriz and Shiraz. Billboards and posters of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei have been put to the torch.

"I'm getting first-hand information from people in the streets in different cities. They're mostly young people, and they’re crying, but they're full of hope. People are very angry," the prominent women’s rights activist Masih Alinejad told me on Sunday. "These people have nothing to lose. They’re fearless now. It is the government that is full of fear."

...

Although the gas price hikes triggered the protests that began last Friday, the popular demands explicitly call for regime change. Unlike 2009, the current protests are leaderless and organic, and thus more difficult to decapitate. "People are angrier and getting angry faster. The regime is already using live bullets, firing into crowds."

"This is the first time the government is afraid of the people right away. They shut down the internet right away. Straight away the government is full of fear. A leaderless movement is more dangerous. If the movement had a leader, they would go and arrest them. Now everyone is a leader."

She claims the Iranian thugs have already killed more than 40 people, but they're covering that up, the same as they covered up the actual death toll during the 2009 Green Uprising.


I've seen commenters mention a central bank in Iran being set fire to, or even "burned down," and have seen some references to that on some less-than-authoritative websites. If any of you have a good cite for that, please let me know.

Khamanei himself mentioned "arson," but did not specify what had been set ablaze.

Below is a tweet showing a building pouring out smoke, but, you know, we don't know what building this is, or what year it's from, or what country it's from. A lot of photos and videos get repurposed in the Middle East.

indeed ... but at this point, it seems clear "government" would have also inflated the currency wildly, to buy votes via free shiit. The difference would be that the oligarchs would not hold all the liens on America, as "government" (in the people's name) went $200T into debt (counting all our retirement obligations).


Wee need a balanced budget amendment, tied to a $25T QE. Tie that to a cut in the massive retirement promises, some real health care reform, big haircuts to bond holders, many golden pensions become copper pensions ... there are solutions.


But they are not politically viable solutions at the moment. Giving congress unlimited money printing ability ... MMT (magic money tree) is how Warren would fund her $10T free health care plan, and even more for the GreenNewDeal. We need more discipline than congress could muster ... but we don't need the globalist oligarchs in charge either. ...

You know what's crazy (would love to hear objections): if the Iranian hostage attempt -- Operation Eagle Claw -- had been successful, Carter would likely have won reelection ... and we may never have had a President Reagan.
Hard to believe given the destruction of the economy on Carter's watch, but obviously the American voting public is fickle.

FYI two days ago, fifty immigrants - including many illegal - were expelled from Chile after being caught throwing up barricades, interfering with police, etc. I was reading about it this morning in the paper El Rancaguino. Thirty were Cuban, nine Venezuelans, seven Dominicans, three Haitians, and one each of Colombian and Bolivian. Not surprisingly, some Chilean writers think that the rioting is an outside job to pressure for socialist "improvements."

210 Inflation in Iran is also out of control (over 50% on the official exchange rate and probably way higher on the ground). So over and above the government changing prices they fixed, everything else is more expensive too. Except the value of their petroleum... that value has not increased at all so hug a fracker if you see one.

Posted by: Archimedes at November 18, 2019 10:01 PM (0lZF/)

238 Some insight into why this is happening now -- It starts with Iraq, and is related to the article Ace previously linked. For years, Iran has been funneling money from Iraq's central bank (CBI) through their currency auctions. These auctions sell Iraqi dinar for US dollars and other currencies, and the CBI earnings are intended to build bank reserves and fund government projects. A huge stream of this income was illegally diverted to Iran and the corrupt Iraqi politicians who were in cahoots with them. The Iraqi people got wise to this and saw the political class living comfortably while Iraqi unemployment was 30%, so they revolted. Now, since the US Treasury and IMF have invested the past 15 years guiding Iraq to open its market and fly solo, Trump relocated military resources from Syria to Baghdad. They are now protecting Iraqi citizens (no more sniping the past 48 hours) and the banks. With the US military, US Treasury, IMF, and UN all in Baghdad now, they have pressured Mahdi and the parliament to proceed with monetary reforms that have ended the CBI auctions and cut off Iran's last lifeline under sanctions. This is why fuel prices spiked, why the Iranian people are torching the banks. They know the racket, and they want to help the US suffocate the regime.

Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself. at November 19, 2019 06:56 AM (lD3vL)

Prince Andrew: I Have the Perfect Alibi to Claims I Had Sex with Underage Childslave Virginia Giuffre.
See, I Was At a... Pizza Restaurant.

This claim is so odd that people speculate that the English royal family has decided to be tricky and try to get the media to protect Andrew by stirring up #PizzaGate conspiracy theories -- given how scandalized the leftwing media was over PizzaGate, maybe they'll rush to Andrew's defense if enough people say "Pizza party? PizzaGate!"

That sounds a little too cute to me, but what do I know -- I used to think the people running things were halfway intelligent, but it turns out they're largely morons. Maybe they're stupid enough to try this too-clever-by-half play.

An article in The Atlantic pointed out that his "I couldn't have been at that party with her, I remember having gone to a pizza restaurant in Wolking" makes no sense and is no alibi, because that restaurant is less than an hour from the site of the party -- he could have gone to the pizza restaurant before or after the party, and his story would be true... but irrelevant. Same as claiming your alibi is that you were in a different city the day before a murder happened.

Thanks for the detail, but... that's not an alibi.

Andrew offered the following additional proofs of innocence:

Regarding the picture showing him with his arm around the waist of an underage Virginia Giuffree, nee Roberts, Andrew claims, "No one has yet proved whether that photo is genuine or has been doctored."

So... no one says it was doctored, and you claim no one has proven it is real or fake?

A strange proof that the photo is not real is that he asserts that when in London (the photo, I guess, was taken in London), he wears a "suit and tie," and this photo shows him wearing what he calls his "travelling clothes," therefore... um.... this could not possibly be him.

His proof of innocence is that he literally never takes off his suit jacket and wears a button-down dress shirt while in London. Only when travelling abroad does he wear such rugged, rude peasant garb.

What?

But his proofs go further. As to Giuffre's claim that he "sweated profusely" when dancing with her at a club, he says that that couldn't be true, because... at the time, but not now, he had a strange condition that caused him not to sweat at all.

He is very stuttery and stumbly about when this alleged condition afflicted him. He seems to emphasize that he did not sweat at that time. I imagine he says this because he sweats now, and he doesn't want his offer of proof rejected upon anyone seeing him sweat.

The New York Post dubbed him "His Royal Dryness."

He also claimed he would never "really party" nor engage in PDAs as seen in the photo.

And yet, Daily Mail points out video from 2007 showing him partying with young women on the French Riviera, engaging in some light PDA, and looking a bit... sweaty.

Oh, and one PDA? A young woman is photographed licking his face, which I think counts as a PDA.

Newly-revealed video shows Prince Andrew at raucous pool party on the French Riviera in July 2008

Pictures from other events also show him enjoying attention of beautiful women including one licking his face

Andrew's public role in danger after 'car crash' BBC interview where he discussed relationship with Epstein

Denied he met Virginia Roberts - let alone had sex with her - and hinted photo of them together could be fake

Duke said he 'never really partied', avoided 'public affection' and Falklands battles left him unable to sweat

But photos and video from French parties show him gripping several women and looking decidedly sweaty

2.5m people watched BBC interview described as 'Not so much a car crash but an articulated lorry crash'

When asked why he stayed in Jeffrey Epstein's place even after Epstein had copped a plea in a sex-slave case, he says he went there to tell Epstein that he could no longer be pals with him. I guess he stayed at his place to... I don't know, give Epstein some final Friendship Time?

When asked what caused him to associate himself with such a seedy individual as Epstein -- guilty of corrupting underage girls, and innocent of suicide -- Andrew stated that he was "too honourable." That's his flaw -- he was too honourable. I imagine he means he was too honourable to even suspect such tawdry, lower-class-type crimes were going on all around him.

The press reaction was generally bad though I'm sure the press will start defending him once the royal family threatens to withhold interviews with Megan Markle.


Some video below.

So, was it the Clinton Mafia that killed Epstein, or the British hit squad?


Because we all know he didn't do it himself.

49 Ah, I see I have an answer from Shibumi.

Wow.

Yeah, too stupid to be let out without a minder.

Makes Charles look positively Einsteinesque, doesn't he?

50 Prince Andrew should just say he is a fag and doesn't diddle little girls, just little boys.

Inbred prick.

51 When I was a child, evil was some far away, unreal concept - you know, a boogyman - non-descript - a fairy tale monster.

As an adult, we can see living examples of it all around us - they are so bold and brazen they self identify. ugh.

72 You don't think I find this D-List celebrity attractive, do you?

My marriage was ALWAYS about having a bargaining chip with the press to protect Andrew.

Like my (real) father, I sleep with every woman I meet.

73 >>>>18 Maybe those 80's and 90's movies about super wealthy, super connected people getting away with all manner of things were closer to true than I thought.

yeah there are a lot of lurid thrillers I dismissed as fantasy but now I'm thinking, half of that shit is happening every day

75 When asked why he stayed in Jeffrey Epstein's place even after Epstein had copped a plea in a sex-slave case,
he says he went there to tell Epstein that he could no longer be pals
with him. I guess he stayed at his place to... I don't know, give
Epstein some final Friendship Time?


could happen. wench i knew in college went to hawaii with her ex to celebrate their breakup. next thing i knew, they were married.

77 To make everything better, Lady Somebody-or-Other took to the TV studio to explain to everyone that the girls in question were 14 year-old *prostitutes* and therefore did not qualify as minors.

Polliwog, please tell me that this is a joke.

81 I'm sure the press will start defending him once the royal family threatens to withhold interviews with Megan Markle.
___________________

That's the royal family's big ace in the hole, an interview with a media-hungry American import?

Sad.

31 I seem to remember Enquirer headlines that called him 'Randy Andy'.
________________

IIRC, that was back in the 80's or 90's, when he was dating chicks like that porn actress Koo Something-or-other. Then he supposedly settled down when he married the redhead, who was a big party girl herself.

82 No no no. You look into the camera, get on your angry face and say "I did not have sexual relations with that young, prepubescent little girl."
