In Wake of ICE Raid and Reduction of Illegal Workforce, Over 200 Americans Apply for Jobs at Koch Foods Chicken Plant

Jobs that Americans will do, if you stop letting illegals do them.

By the way, this is not the same Koch as the famous left-libertarian Koch brothers' company.

But do feel free to make that connection in your head.

A state official said Wednesday that more than 200 people applied for jobs at a chicken processing plant in Morton during a job fair held Monday.

Koch Foods, one of four companies with plants in six small Mississippi towns, was targeted in a massive federal immigration raid on Aug. 7. It contacted the state employment agency the same day to request its help in hiring workers.

...

Dianne Bell, communications director at MDES, said the [jobs] fair, originally scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., was extended to 5 p.m. because of the number of applicants. She also said the number would likely be updated beyond the 216.

It's a sacred conservative principle that corporations should be allowed to employ illegal workers. Especially if it means they can pay them less than citizens.

And if that means American citizens can't compete with their lower wages, well, they're just going to have to die. Or learn to code.

You'd learn that if you'd just buy a four-pack of tickets for our upcoming cruise. Hurry! Space is limited!

Never did it myself, but had three high school friends who went down and got a job at the turkey plant. None of them were what you'd call wimps. One lasted a day, one lasted about a week, the third lasted a year or so until he offed himself.

68 I was just on vacation and spent part of the time in Gatlinburg. I noticed the hotel cleaning staff was not only a majority non hispanic, but in fact included (unusually), men. I've observed the same in parts of Wisconsin as well. Same with fast food.

As a kid, landscaping used to be done by high school and college kids during the summer break.

Only caveat... from a service quality standpoint not much difference at fast food with an illegal that might have a poor command of English and a millennial that might have a poor command of work ethic.

Had a millennial knowingly give me a cop of carbonated water because they were out of coke syrup without mentioning it... just because, I assume. Made sense to him.

Once in industry I applied for a job at a neighboring company for which I was the perfect candidate; the job description could have been written from my resume, I had extensive experience in exactly what they were looking for, a friend and mentor of mine was on the board of directors, and the company was about 200 yards away from where I was working at the time.

Never heard a peep from them. Not a word. Not even enough curiosity to ask me to shuffle down the street for a look-see.

Inference: they had an internal H1B candidate, and were merely advertising to say they couldn't any American qualified.

199 To the consumer, there is little difference in the job bid from contractor #1 who employs illegal aliens and contractor #2 who employs American citizens. Both groups work equally hard and do a similar quality job. The difference is the contractor pays the illegals less and doesn't pay payroll and other taxes; effectively pocketing that money as extra profit.

Fredo's Older Brother, Governor Fredo Due Cuomo: How Dare You Call My Brother Fredo "Fredo" and Slur All Italians With Your Racisty Racist Claim That All Italians are in the Mafia

So the Other Fredo is claiming like OG Fredo claimed, that calling an Italian "Fredo" is a slur on par with the n-word because... because obviously if you call someone "Fredo," you're saying he's the second eldest natural child of the fictitious Corleone crime family.


What a goombah.

From the New York Daily News:

"Italian Americans are not Mafia," [Governor Fredo] Cuomo told WAMC radio. "Don't you dare liken my family to the family you saw in The Godfather or the The Sopranos."

"Don't you dare?"

What, you gonna make us an offer we can't refuse, paesano?

You gonna send us a, como se dic' ?, Sicilian telegram of a fish on ice?

[Older Fredo] Cuomo said bigotry and slurs aimed at Italians [are] as dangerous as xenophobia and anti-Semitism, citing the mass shootings in El Paso and at a Pittsburgh synagogue last year.

Now the word "Fredo" might trigger an anti-Italian mass shooting?

Are you serious, Other Fredo?

"It's all ugliness," he said.

Along with "Fredo," which refers to a thick-headed character in the famed mafia flick, [Other Fredo] Cuomo railed against the use of other anti-Italian insults, like "wop" and "dago."

Calling your stupid runt brother a stupid runt is now the same as actual ethnic slurs?

Go get your ****ing shinebox.

Update: An actor from the Godfather, who played Connie's abusive, treacherous husband, says that Fredo Cuomo is an uomo d'mierde.

"I couldn’t understand, because he's such an intelligent kid, educated and everything else. I heard he's hurt his career," the 75-year-old actor told TMZ, adding that Cuomo’s father, the late ex-Gov. Mario Cuomo, "would smack him" if he heard the rant.

"All these news guys, they're so opinionated," Russo said. "It's not about what you think. And you’'e taking Fredo, a character from a classic? It’s like spitting on the Mona Lisa."

Fredo is intelligent?

You lost me from the beginning there, paesan.

Also -- CNN staffers "embarrassed" by the Fredo rant.

Thanks to Jane D'Oh.

It's just a corruption of the Spanish "Diego," applied to all spaniards (as "john" applies to Americans and Ivan applies to Russians).

I guess it got applied to southern Italians because they're both mediterannean.

It's an Elizabethan short form of "Diego." Both Spanish and Italian diplomatic types were unpopular among English nationalists in that period, mostly because they were always bringing new candidates for King of England. And so (Spanish first) they got a rude nickname.

Because Fredo is claiming we're slurring all Italians.



I know. I'm stirring up trouble on purpose. Most Italian Americans are of southern descent, Sicilian, Calabrese, Napolitano. So when they say Italian they mean "us".

But many northern Italians don't really recognize them as Italian. Like my blue eyed blonde girlfriend from Milano, as Dennis Hopper said, a wop from the north of Italy.

She denied that wop could come from guapo because that's not a word in Italian. But it is a word in a Mediterranean dialect that shares a lot with Spanish.

Let me put it this way, Diana won't eat pasta with a tomato sauce because it offends her sensibilities.

Here, I'll just finish with maximum damage. Garibaldi did not unite Italy, he divided Africa.

Exactly. In some ways Bob Grant was a proto-Limbaugh, or a John The Baptist to Limbaugh as Christ.

Grant was the First 3 hour radio talk show to get a modicum of national syndication. Even though his show focused upon New York and the Tri State area, that area made enough national and even international news that people in other parts of the nation would tune in.

In his autobiography, Limbaugh had to overcome objection not only for his politics, but even many people who liked him politically told him that talk radio is ultimately "Local, Local, Local" and he could not sustain a national 3 hour show.

379 ALL Italians were NOT called "Fredo". Only Gov. Goombah's idiot brother was called "Fredo". So, it's like if CC had been called "The Town Idiot", that wouldn't mean ALL people who live in small towns are idiots, it means that that particular small town dweller is an idiot.

Also, calling someone "Fredo" is more about their being stupid than about their being from the mafia. I believe the slur for "mafia" is "Guido".

From the sound of it, Gov. Goombah isn't any brighter than his brother. It's like two "Fredo's " in one family.

AND ... a "you're connected to organized crime" insult ...


Fredo wasn't of the "connected to the mob" sort. THey had to find shit to keep the idiot busy to keep him OUT of the business.

Fredo was all about being stupid and incompetent and inept and effeminate and a total prick on top of it ... Barky, to a tee.

Meh is a useful word that conveys a good amount of meaning. Ask any American under 70 what it means and you'll probably get a mostly correct answer. It might last, it might not. Who knows? For now, it's a real word.

I actually like eggplant parmesan. The eggplant is sliced, egg dipped,coated in dried breadcumbs and parmesan, fried in olive oil and the slices are layered the dish, alternating with cheese and sauce like a lasagna, but no noodles. The cheese holds it together and the eggplant, prepared the right way, has a meaty taste.

Right. Those families were competent.

Does she still do that "Semi-Ho Made" show or whatever it was? Her recipes were shit, but I do recall enjoying the clambake episode (still probably on YouTube).

"Now, open the can of Frito-Lay bean dip, add two grinds of black pepper, and stir! You're done! Time for cocktails!"

I got the feeling that all of her "recipes" were things her sorority sisters came up with in the middle of weekends of binge-drinking.

Court Summons Issued for Bodyguard of CNN's April D. Ryan, Who Roughed Up a Journalist

Last week, Obese Froghemoth April D. Ryan's bodyguard violently ejected a reporter trying to cover a speech she was giving.

A local news editor claims that a bodyguard for CNN political analyst and White House correspondent April Ryan violently removed him from an event where she was a keynote speaker.

...

After covering the event for roughly three hours "without incident," Kratovil claims he was approached by a man, who he said he later found out was Ryan's security guard Joel Morris.

"During the intro, this man came up to me, mentioned my video camera & asked me 'Who are you with?'" Kratovil wrote on Twitter. "I gave him my card & explained that I followed the proper channels to cover the event. I asked if he had a card & he responded by saying he was 'with the speaker.'"

...

As Kratovil and Morris begin causing a scene, Ryan explains to the crowd, "When I speak, I don't have news covering my speech." Kratovil said another journalist was recording her speech.

A "journalist" who directs her security guard to violently stop other journalists from covering her.

Perhaps we should all take this "journalist's" behavior as the right and proper method of dealing with other "journalists."

Now a court summons has been issued for the bodyguard, and the reporter who got roughed up is considering legal action to sue April Ryan, as the employer of the thug.


Paul Farhi:

Just in: Court officials in New Jersey issue summons against security guard for @AprilDRyan who was involved in an incident involving journalist @CharlieKratovil on Aug. 3. More...

Statement from @CharlieKratovil: "This was more than just an assault on me. This was an assault on freedom of the press, and April Ryan should have immediately condemned the use of violence against a journalist. Because Ms. Ryan has failed to publicly address or...

...apologize for her role in this ugly incident, I am now seeking legal counsel to initiate proceedings that will hold her accountable for the unacceptable and illegal behavior of her employee." More...

Video of the incident here and here.

Incorrect. This was just an assault on you, dipshit. And April Ryan and her muscle should both have been arrested for it.

This crap that Charlie Krapovil thinks it would be fine for a journOLister to rough up one of the plebes but, Heaven Forfend!!, not to ever use such brutish tactics against an esteemed reporter-type dickhead ... is infuriating. Is this guy friggin retarded?

Let me say - Krapovil deserved to be roughed up (because he's a retarded asshole) and APril Ryan and her muscle both need to sit behind bars for their crimes.

More on Epstein's sick web of the rich and famous. Epstein helped finance some French asshole's modeling agency. In return, the French asshole, Jean-Luc Brunel, kept Epstein supplied with fresh young girls.

One time, Jean-Luc sent Epstein three French triplets as a birthday present. They were 12 years old.

Another thing is Epstein had no trouble getting visas for all this jailbait being flown in for him. They need to investigate just how that was happening.

311 Is the President limited to only one State of the Union address per year?

Or is it just by custom?



The Constitution says "from time to time", which does not mean just every now and then but back then was a term of art meaning once a year.

It's not specified that it has to be an address to a joint session of congress. That's tradition. It used to be a letter.

The President may request to address a joint session of Congress at any other time, but it is up to Congress to grant that request.

354 Donald J. Trump -at-realDonaldTrump 7h

Anthony Scaramucci is a highly unstable “nut job” who was with other candidates in the primary who got shellacked, & then unfortunately wheedled his way into my campaign. I barely knew him until his 11 days of gross incompetence-made a fool of himself, bad on TV. Abused staff,...
....got fired. Wrote a very nice book about me just recently. Now the book is a lie? Said his wife was driving him crazy, “something big” was happening with her. Getting divorced. He was a mental wreck. We didn’t want him around. Now Fake News puts him on like he was my buddy!

Posted by: Archer at August 19, 2019 04:49 PM (gmo/4)


Most of the people in Gaza were Egyptians and most of the people in the West Bank were Syrians.

Jordan should have been their place ... but you know the Brits. They're not happy unless they leave a place as fvcked up as they can make it.

Then the PLO (formed in 1964, before Israel even had any of the territories!) tried to assassinate King Hussein one time too many and he chucked their sorry asses out ... so they went and tore Lebanon up.

Great bunch of folks ...

For a fun bit of trolling, next time some wanker pulls out the old "it's the same god" chestnut, ask them to rectify the moon imagery with the Papal decree that worship of the Sun (IE, the old Roman Sol Invictus and Mithras religions) and worship of The Son were targeting the same being.

Russia Nuclear Monitoring Sites Lost Contact After Suspected Nuclear Blast; Speculation That Explosion Was Caused by Nuclear-Powered Mega-Torpedo, Thirty Times Larger Than Largest US Torpedos

Set to DEFCON 3 and scramble Fred Thompson.


Two Russian nuclear monitoring stations--specifically designed to detect radiation-- "went silent" in the days following an explosion of what many believe was a nuclear-powered missile earlier this month during tests at a remote base, a nuclear official said in an email Sunday.

...

Two days later, Russia’s state-controlled nuclear agency Rosatom acknowledged that the explosion occurred on an offshore platform during tests of a "nuclear isotope power source," and that it killed five nuclear engineers and injured three others. It's still not clear whether those casualties were in addition to the earlier dead and injured.

H.I. Sutton, a contributor to Forbes, reported that there has been speculation about what exactly Russia was testing at the time of the explosion. One theory, according to his analysis, is that Moscow was testing a "mega-torpedo" nearby, which is reportedly 30 times larger than submarine torpedoes considered "heavyweight."


The report said, "Launched from a large submarine, potentially from under the protection of the arctic ice cap, it would virtually have unlimited range and Russia claims that it will run so deep that it cannot realistically be countered with existing weapons."

21 I buy that it was some kind of new weapon, not a new "power source."

If it was as big as the claim - "30 times larger" - it seems outlandish. A submarine is a very expensive delivery vehicle for what is probably a payload of 1-2 torpedoes. A giant target like an aircraft carrier, major undersea communications lines, port facilities, etc. *might* justify such an outlay, but something like that seems like Tsar Bomba - a one-off to prove it can be done, but not something that will become operationally effective.

The Russians had a torpedo that could go 3,000 mph under water. That sounds impossible, but it's something about cavitation and creating a bubble to pass through.

Russians say it was an electrical storm.

So then:

1 - Explosion occurs

2 - Two days later, the monitoring stations in Kirov and Dubna suffer "communication and network issues"

3 - Two days after that (?), Rosatom acknowledges the explosion

Anyway, the Fox article isn't very clear, and neither are the Russians.

68 It's also been speculated it as a "dirty" cruise missile power plant of a type explored by both the US and USSR in the 1950s and 1960s.

These "wonder weapons" are gimmicks aimed at scaring leftists into arms control. They are the scary "assault weapons" of nuclear power projection. We need to modernize our nuclear triad to make sure they stay that way.

The Russian can field a hell of a first strike (hypersonic missiles and big doomsday torpedo); late strike clean up (nuclear powered cruise missile) but neither shields them from an effective counter strike that would annihilate the Russian population centers and infrastructure.

The torpedo is supposed to be very dirty with lots of long term fallout in coastal states but if that becomes a thing we can make our warheads far dirtier themselves.

122 It gets even better - they shipped the casualties from the accident to a civilian hospital, not a military hospital, and failed to tell the civilian hospital that the casualties were heavily contaminated with radiation, resulting in the radioactive contamination of several of the medical staff.

The FSB (successor to the KGB) then swooped in, made all the medical staff involved (including the contaminated staff) sign non-disclosure agreements, with heavy penalties for disclosure. (This is known because other medical staff at the hospital were not required to sign the NDAs, and provided a summary of what happened.)

You successfully set off a nuke under a thousand feet of water in the right spot off a coast and you get a gigantic tidal wave.

I was just about to ask that.

The Russkies reported some deaths, and then without clarifying whether it was repeating or expanding, reported deaths (again). So that could have been even more deaths, like ten engineers dying.

146 I wonder if the Russian "fail deadly" system is still in place. The idea of such a system (and I am sure we had or have one, too) gives me the willies.

Basic concept: the opposite of a deadman switch. If it receives no inputs for some amount of time, it assumes the system has failed. If the system has failed, it is because they were the victim of a first strike. Since they were the victim of a first strike, retaliation is required. Since retaliation is required and the system is down, just automatically launch everything.

152 Their doomsday weapon is a very large nuke, in a
special container that can withstand immense pressure. You
successfully set off a nuke under a thousand feet of water in the right
spot off a coast and you get a gigantic tidal wave. Water doesn't
compress so you wind up moving a ginormous amount of water very
quickly. The deliver vehicle is a torpedo like. They can't get the
sub to the right spot because warning systems, but they can deliver a
torpedo there.

Posted by: DR.WTF at August 19, 2019 03:23 PM (aS1PU)

...

I'm an internet expert, so stay with me here:

Water, incompressible, so the entire force of the explosion, or nearly so (water isn't *actually* incompressible) gets used in lifting up a cone-shaped chunk of water whose base is a circle with a radius equal to the depth of the charge.

So if you're 36,000 feet deep, the base is...a really big number and the volume of that cone is dear God that's a big number.

Moving that much water a significant distance (to propagate a tidal wave) probably takes even more energy than we can produce with nukes.

===========

Master and Commander was expensive and didn't make much money considering the budget. Getting a sequel together presented even more challenges because Peter Weir, the director, works slowly (he's made one movie The Way Back, since) and Russell Crowe is expensive.

It cost $150 million and only made $212 million.

Based on the back of the envelope calculations (which are apparently correct), the movie needed to make $500 million to break even.

Math is this: Budget + promo (generally about the same as budget) = $300 million

Theaters take about 40% of ticket sales, so 300/.6 = $500 million.

That movie lost a lot of money.

Y'know, the Slavs have always exaggerated the capabilities of their military and weapons systems. And there's logical case to be made that it's a smart strategic move. The idea being, if you can make yourself appear stronger than you really are, your enemies are less likely to attack you.

It works, as long as you don't fuck up and do something stupid to pull back the curtains and show the doofus working the levers *koff koff The Winter War koff koff*. Then you're screwed.

On the other hand, the West (and more specifically the US) has always understated things. So if you actually DO go to war, you end up stomping the attacking enemy like a bug, because he has no idea just how much you've understated things.

But in the last 20 years or so, the Russians have turned the bluster up to 11, nearly to N Korea or Iran levels of bluster. That's actually a show of weakness, and fear. So the question is, what is it that's scaring the shit out of the Russians even more than normal?

That reminds me of those having a fit about no "people of color" in Dunkirk.

Now in "The English Patient" there was a prominent Sikh character, and in other British war movies set in North Africa or the Far East, there actually plausibly WOULD be many India characters, but not in the Battle of Dunkirk.

409 A wiki article on the Chicxulub crater, which was created from an asteroid strike that caused the Cretaceous extinction event, stated that if the asteroid had struck in the deep ocean, it would have created a tsunami with a height of about 2.9 miles. OTOH, that asteroid struck with the energy of 100 million Tsar Bomba (50 megaton) nuclear weapons.

...

again, i haven't even stayed at a Holiday Inn Express recently, but the dynamic of displacing fluid from a strike at the surface and a big pop at the bottom of a pool are pretty different.

I think the deal with the Indonesian Tsunami was the earthquake created a big uplift, and the tsunami was a result of that displaced water essentially finding level again.

I know there is a pulse wave too that becomes a shear wave at the surface, but I thought I read that the big part of the wave was from the actual physical uplift.

Point being that you need to actually displace the water to get a tsunami.

Man Witnessed Don Lemon's Degrading Sexual Assault on Bartender

When you're famous, they let you rub your dick and then stick your filthy fingers into their noses.


The former boss of a bartender who earlier this week filed an explosive lawsuit against CNN host Don Lemon, accusing the newsman of a strange, sexually charged assault, told Fox News he witnessed the incident and corroborated his onetime employee's claim.

In an exclusive interview, George Gounelas, who managed Dustin Hice at the Old Stove Pub in July of 2018, detailed what allegedly occurred on the night of the bizarre encounter at Murf's Backstreet Tavern, which is located in the prestigious Hamptons area east of New York City. Gounelas is named in the suit filed by Hice.

...


Gounelas told Fox News he couldn’t recall what Lemon said verbatim, but it was "along the lines of, 'Do you like me? Is that why you're bothering me, because you wanna f--- me?'"

...

"He put his hands down his pants, inside his board shorts, grabbed his [genitals], and then came out with two fingers and, like, clipped Dustin’s nose up and down with two fingers asking 'do you like p---- or d---?'" Gounelas said.

...

"Dustin was in this shock mode saying, 'Bro, did that just happen? That was disgusting,'" Gounelas said before explaining that he didn't think it was too unusual at the time....

Gounelas said he isn't sure if Lemon, who is openly gay, was being confrontational or simply flirting.

Don LeMon has denied the claims -- but, he denied them through CNN, using CNN's mouthpiece.

Now that there is a witness corroborating the allegations made in the lawsuit, CNN says it had no reason to comment further "at this time."

The movie's pretty good with a young Jeff Bridges still learning his chops as an actor. Hence, some of the thuds.

On the upside, "WK" also has a grizzly old Richard Boone in a key role. He's one of those guys who improves everything he's in.


The book is an excellent paranoid JFK-esque thriller and, Surprise!, better than the movie.

What LeMon is accused of doing is nasty, but it's not sexual assault. If we agree that it is, the next time it will be a conservative who is accused of "sexual assault" by touching a woman's nose after he returned from the bathroom (he had to touch his penis to piss, right?).

In other words, does the GOPe become the Globetrotters? Or revert back to their normal position as the Washington Generals of politics.

not only celebrity, but "famous" is a bad term for people who have their faces on tv all of the time, which makes them recognizable. Too many fall for, well he or she is on tv or in the movies so therefore they are... not bad?

People are dumb. They idolize people who are literally nothing, contributing nothing to society (yet people like Lemon think that they are).

accused of "sexual assault" by touching a woman's nose after he returned

Dear Itchy,

Not only is it acceptable, it should be encouraged. Itching at your genitals in public is a sign of virility and power. Signals such as these show confidence and desirability. Your male companions will tolerate it and any females in the area will immediately take note of your vigor.

They're still trying to square that circle. The so-called "Pence Rule" is misogynistic and awful because it limits opportunities for women - yet more men then ever practice it because of #MeToo.

Their rejoinder of "don't harass women and you don't have a problem" doesn't square with "#BelieveWomen" and the way the accused always get dismantled. They're trying to rationalize it to make themselves right (as always) and the effort is breathtaking to watch.

They realized that they are poisoning the well and that mentorship opportunities for women are being reduced and reduced quickly due to this crap. The only sensible move for a man in a position of authority is to opt out, which dries up the opportunity.

But women want and need those opportunities, so they're slowly starting to make the "not all women are like that" argument, but the risks are just too damn high. Painter, meet corner.

309 Donald Trump's Twitter habit has caused no shortage of controversy during his presidency. Now, Democrats are hoping to turn it into a liability for his re-election.

One of the party's top think tanks has been privately encouraging lawmakers and candidates to attack the president for failing to deliver on the promises he made because he's too consumed by social media. It is, undoubtedly, the first case of a campaign tactic geared towards turning a president's online behavior into a liability; though rarely has a president's reliance on - and use of - a media bullhorn been such a defining personality trait. Those pushing it have offered new polling data to bolster the idea that the argument will move voters.

About two months ago, the Center for American Progress commissioned the firm Civis to test messaging that framed Trump not as corrupt or unethical but as "ineffective" - and to attribute that ineffectiveness to his being absorbed by his Twitter feed. The results were notable. Of the six messages tested on Trump, the idea that he was "more focused on his Twitter account than on delivering on his promises" was the only one that consistently moved the vote towards Democrats, including among Obama-Trump voters.

.. one question .. why would you telegraph this strategy to The Daily Beast ?

310 205 I still want to know how many of the super successful actresses in the movie industry knew for years what Harv the Perv was, and kept their big, leftwing mouths shut until that one actress finally spoke out.
Posted by: nerdygirl at August 19, 2019 02:24 PM (+lVUW)

I'll take "all of them," Alex.
______________

Yep. And lots of them knew from first-hand experience.

For all the talk about how Brad Pitt threatened Weinstein over propositioning his then-GF Gwyneth Paltrow, Paltrow still went on to star in several of Weinstein's movies after that confrontation, and we know that Harvey didn't put actresses in his movies unless they did the deed with him. So we know how Paltrow "earned" her Oscar.

And Weinstein boasted to several actresses that he had Nicole Kidman on speed dial and she'd come running if he called, so I think we can safely assume that she was in his stable too (I've always wondered if that's why Cruise dumped her).

Just look through all the Weinstein-produced movies and assume that every actress with a significant role got it the old-fashioned way (on her back, with legs spread).

Hey, speaking of gay bars...

Al Pacino's 1980 gay serial killer thriller "Cruising", directed by William Friedkin is coming out on blu-ray tomorrow.

The story concerns a straight detective (Pacino) who's sent into the gay S&M bar scene in NYC to catch a serial killer.

Man, critics hated it and audiences couldn't stay far enough away fast enough from that movie.

I saw it when it came out and was (suitably?) horrified i guess.

The whole movie is just like one long continuous assault between the grisly murders and gay S&M stuff. Just...yikes.

It plays like a horror movie. I believe that intentional.

At the time, I thought it was a serial killing riff on possession. A bit like the movie "Fallen" several years later.

Because, the murders are not really solved. Plus, the ending seems to hint that Pacino's character maybe has become a serial killer.


Anyway, I can't really recommend it.

But, if that sounds like your kind of thing. Go for it.

Posted by: naturalfake at August 19, 2019 02:41 PM (mIQCW)

320 So LeMon was drunk as hell, acted like an asshole, and now he's getting targeted by the cancel culture he helped create.


When I first heard this story I didn't care. I thought it was just two guys on a patio bar and the guy getting the finger mustache could take care of himself.

As I read this now he was the bartender on duty, doing his job, where he's not allowed to punch the customer. That changes everything.

375 The talking point I've been seeing is "If you won't meet with women, it means you don't trust yourself not to rape them!" or something along those lines

That's obtuse, of course. But the Pence rule is based somewhat on men's recognition of their own shortcomings, I think. The boss and his secretary is a cliché for a reason. In part, the Pence rule makes sense as a guardrail to keep from crashing and burning your own life down. You don't have to be a Bubba-style skirtchaser to benefit from that kind of safeguard.

377 Ecce disingenuousness. Because the mere allegation will ruin your life; no need to actually do anything. There's zero upside and a catastrophic downside.

This is also probably part of the answer to the question posed above as to why Lemon's face went unpunched. The downsides to punching a gay elite news celebrity are catastrophic. The system is not on your side if you react in a way many people will consider justifiable.

Posted by: connect those dots at August 19, 2019 02:44 PM (0AmmY)



Well,yeah.

Between "The Exorcist" and "Sorcerer", Friedkin was one of those directors who's movies I would just go see regardless of story.

Let's just say that "Cruising" made me more selective in my viewing of his movies.

Anyway, the possession idea hadn't been totally beaten to death yet. And I thought "Cruising" seemed an interesting variation on that idea.

Illinois State Senator Apologizes for Supporters Acting Out a Trump Assassination Sketch at Fundraiser

We keep hearing about the danger of violent rhetoric from fringe nobodies on the right.

But here we have the well-heeled, politically-connected respectable members of the Democrat Party staging a mock assassination at a politician's fundraiser -- not the fringe, but the very core of the Democrat Party -- and yet... no discussion about the left's rhetoric and the left's deliberate -- not inadvertent, deliberate -- cultivation of an assassination cadre.

And by the way: The Democrat Brian Sandoval posed for a picture with the guy who played the assassin role.



Photos posted by a woman who witnessed the mock assassination on Friday night show supporters of Sen. Martin Sandoval, who represents Illinois' 11th District -- which includes parts of Chicago --acting out in front of guests, according to WCIA.

One of them can be seen pointing a fake machine gun at a man wearing a Trump mask and Mexican costume. The individual appears to simulate being shot -- grabbing his chest and leaning back.

In another photo, Sandoval can be seen standing next to the person holding the gun.

"Why is this ok?" a FB user asked. "I am sickened."


Three seconds until Rich Lowry calls for someone else on the right to be deplatformed, just to change the topic from having to comment on his friends on the left.

Gotta conservate that gig at Politico!

78 Um, ok, I was going to post this on the below thread, but I guess I'll do it here now.

Posters keep assuming Rashida Tlaib's district in Michigan is some Muslim stronghold. Or that it includes Dearborn. It doesn't include Dearborn ( includes Dearborn Heights, definitely different adjacent community) and it includes most of the poorer , immediate suburbs adjacent to Detroit. These communities are for the most part, areas that began decline after the riots in 69, then continued into a freefall with the flight of industries , businesses, etc. due to NAFTA, 80's recession, the huge implosion of the steel industry in the early 80's , etc.
These communities are almost 60% black, 35% white, and a smattering of Asian , NA, etc. The district , before and after redistricting in 2012, was represented by John Conyers for decades. Yes, that John Conyers, who finally resigned after it was shown he was using his office funding to pay off claims of sexual harassment, etc. Whose wife Monica was on the Detroit City Council until she went to prison for contract fraud he claims to have known nothing about.

Her district is not Muslim majority or even heavily Muslim. Her district is full of stupid voters who can't and don't understand anything other than getting free stuff. The average income is $33,000 , which may be counting welfare, I don't know.

Specifically that he stole the Helter Skelter idea from somebody else, and that he really was only using the idea to control and sex up a group of naive middle class kids. The kids, however, took him seriously and went off and started killing people.

Manson decided to try to get ahead of that, and tied up the LaBiancas and set his crew on them, trying to take control of things again.

Please don't think I'm trying to argue Manson isn't guilty, he absolutely is. At the very least he knew what they would do to the LaBiancas and he facilitated their murders. I'm just wondering if anyone has an opinion on that theory.

The film depicts a group of elites who hunt "deplorables" for sport. Fox News commentators have condemned it as "sick" and "awful."

In response to a series of emailed questions, Zobel said he had no intention to inflame political conflict, which has led to a series of murderous incidents in recent years.

"If I believed this film could incite violence, I wouldn't have made it," he wrote.

He said that the film does not take sides politically, and that his goal was instead to satirize "both sides" of the partisan divide.

I suspect they really think that they can get away with it without consequence. History thus far has proven them right. They have pushed the envelope and hauled the Overton Window to the left for decades with no negative outcomes for themselves and virtually no backsliding.

I seriously doubt civil war is even on their minds for the most part, and that those who *do* consider it see the odds as something akin to a 12+ standard deviation likelihood.

171 Zobel spoke for the first time since Universal canceled the release of "The Hunt" on Aug. 10, in the wake of a series of mass shootings and amid a mounting conservative backlash.

The film depicts a group of elites who hunt "deplorables" for sport. Fox News commentators have condemned it as "sick" and "awful."

In response to a series of emailed questions, Zobel said he had no intention to inflame political conflict, which has led to a series of murderous incidents in recent years.

"If I believed this film could incite violence, I wouldn't have made it," he wrote.

He said that the film does not take sides politically, and that his goal was instead to satirize "both sides" of the partisan divide.

If so, he could release it for free viewing for one night over PPV streaming or Amazon, etc.

Then when everyone who cares sees what a delightfully evenhanded satire it is-

He'll have no problem releasing it into the theaters.

172 What is a 'Mexican' costume? Local Mexican groups (not Puerto Rican, since they don't talk to each other) have some really great mariachi bands and those costumes cost a fortune, as well as the instruments (the bass -- wowee) and the little kids learn the Folklorico dances (the circle skirts on the girls are so big it would be like 720 degrees at least) and I think a lot of kids want to wear the luchadores masks.

The movie's pretty good with a young Jeff Bridges still learning his chops as an actor. Hence, some of the thuds.

On the upside, "WK" also has a grizzly old Richard Boone in a key role. He's one of those guys who improves everything he's in.

Rashida Tlaib Now Calling for Boycotts of Individual Jews

Well, Bill Maher, I think, is half-Jewish, and of course an obnoxiously evangelical atheist. But I'll count it.

Maher had called her efforts to push the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) movement against Israel a "bullshit purity test" and refuted the claim that just because Palestinians are "browner" and Israelis are "whiter," then of course the Palestinians must be the oppressed and the Israelis the oppressors.


Maher came out hard against the BDS movement Friday, calling it a "bulls— purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class."

It is "very shallow thinking that the Jews in Israel, mostly white, and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied," he added.

Tlaib called for a boycott of Maher in return.



Tlaib and America's Sweetheart, alleged brotherwife, and alleged adulterer Ilhan Omar both retweeted a cartoon charged by some as being antisemitic this weekend as well.

They retweeted a cartoonist, Latuff, who has previously been awarded the Palm d'Or of antisemitism.

"In 2006, Latuff came in second in Iran's International Holocaust Cartoon Contest, which is a thing that exists, in case you thought the TL couldn't get any worse.”

Latuff defended his use of the Holocaust to assail Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, even while acknowledging that the two are not exactly the same.

"Of course Israel isn’t building gas chambers in the West Bank, but surely we can find some similarities between the treatment given to Palestinians by the [Israel Defense Forces] and the Jews under Nazi rule," Latuff said, according to Fox News.

"My cartoons have no focus on the Jews or on Judaism. My focus is Israel as a political entity," he said without explaining why it was necessary to use anti-Jewish tropes to attack the Jewish state.

"It happens to be Israeli Jews that are the oppressors of Palestinians," he said.

To be honest, I don't find the cartoon they retweeted to itself be antisemitic. It's a cartoon of Netanyahu and Trump slapping their hands over Tlaib's and Omar's mouths to silence them.



It strikes me as a bit of Jewish Social Justice Warriorism to claim that this is "antisemitic" as opposed to just some angry agitation you don't like.

But then, his past history does suggest he's one of those guys who has Post-Its stuck all over his bathroom mirror, reminding him, "Don't say 'Jews,' say 'Zionists.' Don't say 'Jews,' say 'Zionists.'"

Meanwhile, the oppressed Palestinians just passed a totally non-oppressor law against gays and trannies. (Caution: I got some kind of warning on that JPost link.)

he Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.

...

Explaining the decision to ban the LGBTQ group from operating in PA-controlled areas, Luay Zreikat, spokesperson for the PA Police, said that such activities are "harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society."

NYT columnist Bari Weiss admitted that the media was deliberately ignoring Tlaib's and Omar's antisemitism so as not to complicate their Orange Man Racist narrative.

First, Weiss pointed out that the anti-Semites declared they were going to Palestine instead of Israel on their itineraries. She then dropped the bombshell that the trip "was being sponsored by a group that literally published neo-Nazi blood libels and said that it supported female suicide bombers. You know, hailing them as heroes. That's a scandal."

It was a scandal "that has not been covered by any mainstream paper or network..." she lamented. "If someone like [Iowa Republican Congressman] Steve King was going to Sweden or Norway and eating with neo-Nazi groups, that would be front-page news," she added.

She then posed a question to the panel: "is the fact that Trump has lodged racist, horrible attacks on these women, has that made them sort of untouchable for us to cover in an accurate way?" She never got a real answer from anyone on the panel. Instead, fill-in host John Avlon quickly moved away from those facts and back to bashing Trump. Moments later, the segment was over.

The cartoon is stupid, without regard to antisemitism or lack thereof.

Donald Trump uses everything in his Troll-King Toolkit to put these dirty, pig-ignorant bitches front and canter, and to amplify their voices as much as possible.

The last thing he would ever do is try and silence them, as they are so effective at campaigning for Trump/Pence 2020.

Barack Obama seriously reduced the number who vote Democrat, and I am optimistic that the anti-semitic lurch by the rest of the Party in recent years will increase that attrition in 2020.

But Leftists of any religion or ethnicity are hardline doctrinaires who cannot and will not ever change. Power and dominance is their religion.

95 "exactly how they tried to discredit stop the boycott to stand up
against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now" from the tlaib quote

Winnie Mandel was torturing her tribal enemies while Mandela was in prison here. When Mandela went back he sang with his ANC pal about killing the Boers (white farmers, his enemy).


Many S African whites voted for Mandela hoping for a new dawn, but Mandela was always a commie and tribal warrior. But our MFM has made Madela Fiction into urban legend that white man bad, black man brought peace and unity. Tlaib states that as fact about S Africa ... as we are seeing more fully now with whites fleeing and S Africa falling, it was all always a lie ... part of the planned globalist mythology.

97 The pictures from a fundraiser for Sen. Martin Sandoval were initially posted on Facebook by a woman who attended the event and shows a man pointing a fake gun at someone wearing a Trump mask and a Mexican costume. Donors paid a minimum of $250 to attend Sandoval's golf outing in Winfield, Illinois, located just outside of Chicago.

Although he does not appear in the photo of the mock assassination, the 55-year-old Sandoval is seen posing with the man who held the fake gun. It is unclear if Sandoval was aware of the mock assassination.

Sandoval, who is chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, issued an emailed apology.

"The incident that took place is unacceptable," he said. "I don't condone violence toward the President or anyone else. I apologize that something like this happened at my event."
