The Morning Report - 3/21/19

wasthtb.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and after going an entire winter without so much as a sniffle, I come down with something before the first full day of spring is even over. Oh well, let's get right to the links.

Immigration: The illegal alien animal who murdered Mollie Tibbetts is getting paid to be an expert witness - on how to be an illegal alien and get away with murder, no doubt. Meanwhile the amount of money reported as remittances is huge, and if you were to slap a tax of say 90-95% on it, that might put a serious crimp in the incentive to invade the country in the first place as well as perhaps de-incentivizing the upwards of 30 million illegal aliens already here to remain. Meanwhile, Maine GOP honcho Nick Isgro is being smeared by the usual gang of Leftist scum for speaking the truth about the national crisis of open borders and while the SCOTUS ruling a few days back is a big win, we are still losing the war to preserve our national identity and sovereignty.

Democrat-Sanctioned Joo-Hatred: The anti-American front group known as MoveOn is calling on all Democrat 2020 prexy candidates to boycott AIPAC. And first out of the gate to take that call seriously appears to be "Blotto" O'Rourke who sees horns on Bibi's head and a halo over Abbas'. Feh. If none of this does not tell you that the driving forces in that party are officially and openly anti-Semitic, you're not paying attention. Finally, two pieces on the possibility of a "Jexodus," one from Daniel Greenfield and the other spotlighting the Jewish Maxim model (and total hottie) Elizabeth Pipko who has been taking flak for outing herself as not a braindead Leftist pod-person.

To politics where, starting off in Civil War 2.0 category, Meathead "Rob" Reiner continues the incitement of violence by comparing President Trump to cancer. And not unrelated, the rabid ignoramus is linked to a cabal that is engaging with the same players to continue to pimp collusion propaganda to a more-than-eager media for immediate dissemination.

Looking at the Democrat Scandal Sheet, an octogenarian film-flam man may be behind bars for the rest of his life for bilking gullible Bernie and Beto boosters out of big bucks and then trying to pull a Bialystock and Bloom on them, while No-Shot Jello-Brain Gillibrand stammers and stutters out a lame excuse about her aiding and abetting the sexual abusers among her key staff.

The big story in politics, which is really just the coming out of the closet, if you will, is the Democrats full-throated pushing for the abolition of the electoral college and the packing of the SCOTUS among other things as a means to secure permanent political power. They know, as we do, that even in today's fractured society, they cannot easily advance their agenda electorally or even legislatively. So do away with the safeguards that protect against majoritarianism and essentially, America will be ruled by Santa Monica and the Upper West Side. Forever. In any case, as the lead article illustrates, all of these schemes require a Constitutional amendment, but that presupposes a) Democrat States and leaders abiding by the Constitution and b) a John Roberts-led SCOTUS that will do its duty and strike down these attempts to overthrow the process.

Elsewhere, despite all of this, the latest polls show Trump handily beating Beto and Bernie and the RNC made a massive haul in campaign bucks last month, Donna Brazile hated McCain before she loved him, Palsi Pelosi tries to tamp down the impeachment talk, No-Shot Gillibrand deflects from her own slimy behavior by promising free money and citizenship to illegal alien invaders, Tank Abrams (the poor man's Lauren Hutton) is still bitching and moaning, Andrew "Out-the-Ying" Yang is one sick pup, Rabbi Fischer on Kellyanne Conway's domestic disturbance, V.D. Hanson on Trump's 2020 outlook and two fine essays on the totalitarian progressive menace.

Mueller/Congressional Coup: McStain was instrumental in the collusion hoax and the attempt to revoke Jared Kushner's security clearance.

Abortion: Big crowds expected for Illinois anti-baby killing rally, abortion is going to be murder on 2020 Dem prospects, of all people, Kermit Gosnell has misgivings on legalized third trimester infanticide, and a feminizazi is caught stealing crosses from a pro-life display.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: The National Laughingstock Washington Post lets Turk Turdogan, the world's biggest jailer of journalists, write a vile op-ed, CNN spouts utter lies about the electoral college and James Madison, Jeffrey Lord on the Tu-Ca persecution, and two essays on breaking up Big Brother Big Tech.

Guns: The tone-deaf hypocrisy of the Colorado AG is staggering; calls for the firing of sheriffs who refuse to confiscate guns in violation of our second amendment while the country is lousy with sanctuary cities and states for allowing illegal alien criminals to roam freely. Get fucked, jerk-off.

Foreign Desk: An Indian oil company is flouting our embargo on Venezuela, Mexico's Obrador is steering that country towards Venezuelan doom (if it ain't already there), 2020 Dems are hot and horny to allow the Farsis to nuke up, and more on the Poland holocaust dust-up. Meanwhile a US general is risking his career by telling the truth about identity politics.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Malkin exposes CAIR for the terrorist-enablers they are and "Bro-Fo" Omar votes against a bill allowing insurance companies to deny claims to relatives of terrorists. Shocking.

Domestically, the IG reveals the DoJ covered up for a rotten turd with an FBI badge, some hope for reform with the new FDA commissioner and let's expand the welfare state even more with family leave - not. Meanwhile, the widening of the Panama Canal kneecaps the economic and sometimes political stranglehold that west coast longshoremen's unions have on Asian trade.

Crime and Punishment: Chi-Com national sentenced for pimping killer pills, a look at leftist prosecutors and their undoing of law and order in big cities and Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger half of the DC terrorist sniper duo is up for parole. What will SCOTUS do?

Education: The incoming USC chancellor led the war on Confederate monuments at UNC, a twist on reparations as Harvard being sued for using pictures of slaves, the case against a leftist college forcing a conservative student to participate in activism heads to court and Chiquita Khruschev AOC is in hot water again, this time for attending a conference to end standardized testing and lying about it.

Red Greens: Hack-in-black Obama stooge puts kibosh on Wyoming oil drilling, US cities ending the money-wasting recycling scam, the journal Science goes full Lysenko, and 10 years after the Climate-Gate scandal, global warming is all but debunked. Meh, the story was mostly embargoed by the agitprop media and it's still an article of faith by the Donkey Chompers set.

Feminazism and Transgender Psychosis: British authorities threaten to take an autistic teen away from parents if they refuse to cut off his penis and put him in panties and garter belts.

Hither and Yon: Christian Toto ponders the Left's reaction to Best of Enemies, a look at Shrill in context to abortion, the long and horrid rap sheet of the SPLC and Socialism's bloody body count. And still counting.

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.

I originally thought that until I started to engage many of the targets of this action.

You don't want to ride that train.

Many work here and send the money home because they don't really want to live with us, they want to live among their own people and culture. And, quite frankly, it is far too damned expensive to live in the US.

I spent time in a quaint central Mexico city and was enjoying symphonies, museums and $15 high end steak dinners.

If we penalize them for sending money home that will only encourage them to bring their families and culture up here and the problem gets much, much worse as our nation and culture is finally dissolved away never to be seen again.

26 how do you tax remittances without taxing all outgoing dollars from anyone?

It just sounds cool when you say it, but implementation is a detail left to others.

What I found interesting in Mexico is the difficulty in converting dollars to pesos. American visitors can do it, but passports are required and only certain banks will even do it. Mexican citizens have to undergo an anal exam because of the huge amount of drug dollars that come in.

So there is all kinds of tracking of US currency into Mexico - the problem is, its being done by the Mexican government, not the US.

Again, to better understand how the world works, it helps tremendously to use the template that our government, at every level, is an occupying hostile enemy force that enjoys inflicting pain while plundering the conquered vassals.

No offense, Great One, but just like Sodomite "marriage" and a host of other atrocities inflicted by the deviant on to the Normal population, there will be Herculean efforts by the usual suspects to not only provide those bennies, but to also put them in the front of the line with some sort of variation of the Reparations claim.

And as for voting rights, they are voting Right Now. If not directly, they are having their votes cast for them because their numbers are calculated in the apportionment of voting districts, and those who can legally vote are always the Gerrymandered Left who will use that vote multiplier of their counting as if they are citizens to vote "the right way" for them.

It appears to be a civil case, and in civil cases, it is the Wild Wild West. Laws, ethics, justice, tradition have no influence at all.

What is in play at civil cases is how well can one side manipulate and persuade an emotional and irrational jury.

One a Kittitas County sheriff deputy, Ryan Johnson. 42 killed last night by a criminal who opened fire on him during an attempted traffic stop. He leaves behind a wife and three children. Wounded in the same event was Kittitas City police officer Benito Chavez, 22. He was airlifted to a Level One trauma center in Seattle with a shattered femur. He will be, eventually, okay. He and his wife are expecting their first child.
    The criminal, who you can do with what you will, Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29 died at the local hospital. Deputy Johnson was a 15 year veteran. Officer Chavez was only hired in December. I'll ask prayers for them and their families.
    Thank you all, friends in grey boxes.

    Just finished the remake of "Suspiria" and I think I like it even more than the original. Instead of the lurid colors and jump scares of the 70's version, its all dreary muted neutrals slashed by blood red. And it has one of the most gruesome black magic scenes ever.

    Here are the RLM guys discussing the film (spoilers):

    I'm still fuming about a nightmare I had with MS tech support this morning. My problem was that my copy of Windows 10 Pro on my new system deactivated itself. This was a $200 full copy I bought back in Dec. I just bit the bullet and did it, since I had no upgradable version(well, that would work) of Windows for what became the new system.

    Now, this ASR mobo is based on the new Intel z390 chipset, so new and cutting edge and some bugs and rapidly updated BIOS as those kinks are worked out.

    I have flashed 3 new BIOSes (BIOi?) since I put it together in Dec. During one of those flashes, one of the MAC addresses on one of the (3!) onboard Ethernet controllers was wiped out.

    No problem -- ASR tech support emailed a link to download a tool to reflash those addresses.

    I did that last night -- you had to open up the case to read the original factory MACs off some stickers on the mo/bo.

    Well, that flash operation changed something, some damn checksum or something in the (secret) algorithm Windows uses to computer a unique hardware ID.

    It would not reactivate, doing about a dozen different things to do it. So, time to call tech support. I was not going to throw away a $200 license.

    I got frustrated and just said sorry, can't understand, and hung up.

    Fooled around with the same shit for another 30 minutes with no success, and, determined not to blow that $200, called again.

    Got another Indian woman. Still couldn't understand a damned word. It took over 30 minutes, but I finally got her to understand and she connected me to someone up the chain.

    Not native American, but much better accent. No problem. Well, that took another near hour. We finally got my $200 purchase verified, and me verified.

    She then sent me up the chain to some Windows guy. He was American, and knew a bit what he was about.

    The trouble was some glitch didn't generate a proper key for the full retail purchase. It thought it was an upgrade, the free kind for previous Windows that aren't transferable or something.

    He had to generate a new key. First he had to get authorization from his superiors to do that. Then it took 15 minutes for the system to generate said new key.

    He then gave me the key, and voila, she activated.

    Over 3 hours total time on the phone this morning.

    No. But what are now called flip flops used to be called "thongs." As every 'Ron here knows, "thongs" are now very skimpy under panties.

    When my daughter was in college I attended a tea at her sorority. The girls were all wearing flip flops although the weather was cold.

    I said--why on earth are all these gals wearing thongs? The silence in the room was deafening, and I gave my daughter yet another thing to tell her therapist!

    This Indian accent thing blew my mind. Those two women were unintelligible. Now, back in college I had a Mechanics professor who was Indian. It took a little getting used to, but his accent was actually enjoyable. SOrt of sing-song cadence, and rather fun to listen to.

    For example, "Moment of intertia" would sound like "momentum inertia". He pronounced moment, "moMENT". And "fuel" like "foo-el" (rocket equation stuff).

    And during collision problem lectures (standard 200 undergrad mechanics) he'd get all animated with diagrams of the billard balls. "Dis fellow go dis way, and dat fellow go dat way!"

    And he'd take his chalk and write on the walls when he ran out of room on the blackboard. He also drew on the door to the classroom, using it as a radius, "R -- dis is 'r', drawing a radius vector", then swinging the door back and forth to illustrate torque and such.

    He was a trip. And fun. Quirky accent, but lovable.

    These tech support MS outsourcees were not anything of the kind.

    Turns out from what I was reading that difference between my Mechanics prof and those tech support gals was, to put it bluntly, one of class.

    The former was a well educated, higher class Indian. He was a Ph.D in physics, educated in English. He though and spoke in English, using it conversationally from an early age and with native speakers. He then came over here to get the Ph.D and further honed his English.

    His native cadence was still there, but it was with real English, spoken by real speakers.

    Not so much the tech support gals. They are taught English, well "English" spoken by other Indians and completely removed from any native speakers of it.

    It's an odd affected artificial language really. It's not real English at all.

    275 We don't have Springtime in Alaska. We have breakup. Three weeks of filthy slop and precarious walking surfaces, wet feet and crabbiness, and usually a nice Chinook wind from the south at, say, 90 mph, intermittently.

    We are hip deep in breakup just now.

    The foot thick layer of compressed ice that made up my driveway is now several foot deep potholes full of filthy water and the rest is resisting chipping with everything the frozen ground can muster.

    Crossing the parking lot at work involved hip boots or maybe water skis.

    I've been behind enemy lines in MN since '90 - both our kids live here with their spouses so leaving anytime soon isn't an option. But we all keep our noses clean and do what we can. I have a trip to Maui in two weeks with the spouse of 29 years, a permit to purchase under review after a move to a twin home and a work move today to a corner cube with no one looking over my shoulder so life is pretty damn good.

    I've known enough Sheriff's dep't employees and other LEO's to say, your friends are right to be worried. Respond, but do it anonymously and in an untraceable manner.

    We do not live in a country, or a society, anymore where you can simply "trust" any Government official to be honest, or to "follow the rules". ESPECIALLY Law Enforcement - it's sad, but it's true.

    Remember the Houston case where a "Drug Raid" ended up getting a whole bunch of cops shot and both of the middle aged homeowners killed? The cop who got that warrant has now admitted that he faked all of the info that he gave to the Judge to get that warrant. But don't worry, he'll get a Sternly Worded Reprimand in his personnel file.

    I just read an interesting piece at the Daily Mail on the Titanic. There's more about the coal fire.

    That was something that came out a few years ago. There was a smoldering coal fire in some of the bunkers. This was a common problem with the coal burners. Anyway, it was known, and documented from testimony.

    But the claim is that it contributed much more to the sinking than thought. They claim that the fire had heated some of the bunker walls red hot and they have warped and weakened. When it hit the iceberg, it allowed it to break the water tight seals on the bulkheads.

    And second they were going pretty fast, stoking the furnaces pretty fast to try to get rid of the smoldering coal as fast as they could. Thus they hit the iceberg at a much greater speed than otherwise.

    388 Thanks for the ONT.

    Something interesting: I have been playing The Division 2 and it has been mostly quite good. There have been some cultural quibbles: The paramilitary enemy faction immediately starts acting like a mafia and executing it's own for desertion (although I have less issue with that last than they probably intended.)

    The part that made me go 'Huh?' was a mini boss that pops up if you do a side quest chain. The mini boss is supposed to be a 'direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson' who starts kidnapping people and forcing them to work for him as 'slaves' (remember this is after an epidemic has wiped out something like 95% of the world population.) The Division guy tells you 'Go make sure he cannot continue his ancestor's legacy of slavery.'

    Now, I am not a big Thomas Jefferson fan, but really? THAT is all you are going to take away from the author of the Declaration of Independence? Come on now, children.

    Manafort hoped to use his connection with Davis to be put in charge of the Republican National Convention. McCain refused to chose Manafort because he hated Russia and supported Ukraine.

    470 The new claim is they turned hard right, per naval rules to avoid collision, but the ice berg's mass was to the right. They then turned back to port, but it was too late.

    Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at March 21, 2019 12:13 AM (f1Vqw)

    Turning hard right (to starboard) to avoid collision, only makes sense if the impending collision is with another vessel under way, with the helmsman also trained to turn hard to starboard in such circumstances. Icebergs are under way; they drift with the current, and cannot take evasive action if they even wanted to.

    I think there were a few hundred Bill Frick Studillacs made. I don't know if good records were kept. I might have seen one, but don't know if it was a Frick car. Pretty easy to make a clone, and a pretty easy engine swap to do, given that the Caddy engine of the day was dimensionally almost identical to Studebaker's V8.

    I think there is an SDC member in Georgia or the Carolinas with an actual Frick Studillac.

    499 The Studebaker club had a member who was keeping a registry of every known Studillac. This is a popular and honored pursuit among the odder products, like, for instance, the Packard Hawk. AFAIK his records are gone: he was a college prof, and on the day he retired he walked out of the ivied walls and keeled over dead.


    Usually that club's magazine is a real gold standard of historical accuracy. They did have one slip-up, though. They ran a detailed and admiring article on the work of the late Bill Frick.


    The next month, there was a good-natured letter to the editor, fromBill Frick.

    Needing a permanent drummer for the group after George T. Babbitt, Jr. dropped out because he was not old enough to play night clubs and bars, they hired Howie Johnson and, in the midst of a fast-paced touring schedule, recorded an album to capitalize on the success of the single. (Babbitt went on to become a 4-star general in the USAF and on March 1, 1998, he played live in uniform on drums with the band.)[

    The Texas City Museum has an epic display, replete with hundreds of photographs, and artifacts.

    It was far worse than the mere statistics can portray.

    I've met survivors of the event.

    That kind of history, told by those that lived it, carry a kind of force that no mere textbook or photograph can convey.

    Every time I drive across the Galveston Causeway, I look out over the water at Texas City, and the ships moored at the exact same docks.

    And realize in a glimpse, that if one of those ships goes up, from that same Causeway I go off.

    Kinda brings it home a bit, that.

    552 I wish there were a conservative alternative to Youtube. Yeah I know, there should be conservative alternatives to all the big net platforms. But there are alternative search engines, browsers, and even web mail. There should be a Youtube alternative that draws content. I know there is some French option but it is not the same thing.

    Youtube pushes leftist videos relentlessly. I don't think there would even be an SNL if Youtube did not put them at the top of trending videos every freaking Sunday. And they will not stop putting this John Oliver video at the top of trending. I finally watched it after what seems like a week and I did learn something. John Oliver is hot garbage. If this is what people find interesting and worthy, God help us.

    One more thing I noticed from Youtube. If you search "Medal of Honor" and late night shows, the interviews seem to end around 3 years ago. I can't believe the late night hosts are so petty and so partisan that they wont interview MOH recipients from the present administration. That is some really weird stuff.*
    * Fallon, who seems to be the most normal of the group, did honor four recipients last year and at least one received the medal during the Trump admin. But I have not seen a single recipient interviewed like they were during the Obama admin. It is not a big deal in some ways, but it is a big deal in others. I mean, what the crap!
    I could have missed the interviews but sure can't find them.

    He also made an apple crisp-type-thing that involved vanilla ice cream and a hot Cup-O-Joe.

    555 Back. Messing with my Chinese Mystery Pistol. It looks as though I made the firing pin too short. It dimples the primer, but did not set it off. I was using a cartridge from which I removed the bullet, and dumped out the powder, so no danger of a nasty accident.

    But I did get the extractor to work, so there's that. The firing pin I made is a short length of drill rod, silver-brazed into the end of the striker. I was aiming for about .050" of protrusion past the face of the breechblock, and I came up a little short. No biggie. I can heat the striker, remove the short piece, and braze in a longer one easily enough. But not tonight.

    lecturing rarely works. It depends of course on the stage of the disease but there is pretty much nothing sadder than watching people argue or even try to reason with a dementia patient at a certain point. And this is what you see all the time. It is human nature, it is how we are taught to interact.

    I am not going to give any medical advice but from my experience people are going to eat what they want to eat and when they are hungry. I recall hearing that dementia patients take a lot more time to eat so you have to account for that as well.

    I know one patient that would chew his pills like candy. It did not matter that some of those were designed to dissolve over time. My point is there are just some things you can't control. There have to be other ways to give them vitamins, roughage, or whatever the doctor thinks is necessary.

    Since he can no longer drive, I've been able to keep the Ho-Ho's, Little Debbies and Potato Chips to a minimum.

    ...so he has taken to eating my Clearly-Labeled, Low-Sodium food. I'm actually laughing right now because if I didn't, I'd be insane.

    578 Every situation is different, some are worse than others, and it is nobody's fault. You play the hand you are dealt. What worked for me was giving them the calmest, happiest, and most active situation possible. What I mean by active is physical exercise and mental stimulation when appropriate. Sitting around does little good for anyone.

    If the patient got fixated on something that was not reality, it is best not to argue, but to find a way to get their mind off that. In other words, to change the subject.

    Thanks for the insight. This is a puzzle, and I like puzzles. I shall persist. I think my next step is to use the depth gauge on my caliper to measure the actual firing pin protrusion, and if it is much less than .050", I will redo it. If it is .045 or better, I will try the factory ammo first (removing bullet and powder, of course).

One thing that can help is letting them keep their keys but just not a car key. If you take away all their keys it takes away a sense of freedom and control they have had most of their lives. There is nothing good about this God awful disease, you just do your best. And you are voicing your concerns and trials, that can't be a bad thing. If you didn't you would not hear other's ideas.

    You might want to check into a care taker's support group if you have not already. I didn't do that, but that is no badge of honor. The care takers in some ways suffer more, but then again, I don't think many would trade places. Good luck to you Slap and all dealing with this disease.

    -Deltas: Competent, loyal, Hard-Working Individuals who never want to lead, but complete tasks at every challenge.
    -Gammas: Unless you are asking them about their Field of expertise, they will undermine and derail everyone to whine about how They Should Be In Charge, until they are.
    -Sigmas: Friendly, romantic individuals who don't take well to Alphas, but will complete tasks and are better Left-Alone, even though they need cajoling every now-and-again.
    -Omegas: Menial laborers with No ambition to Rise in Rank.

    613 605 483 There was a... made for Showtime movie from the early 90's about time travelers from the future who visit the site of disasters as tourists. They show up in a small town and the main character (some dude from the present day) falls for one of the woman tourists.

    It was poorly made, iirc, but an interesting concept as kind of an implied future dystopia go.

    It's an excellent short story. My sister has a book of Sci Fi short stories and this was one of them. I had no idea it was made into a movie but not surprised they f'd it up. It seemed to be that the future people would visit disasters right before they hit. One of them would make symphony's made up of human suffering. They present day guy fell for the future girl but it was a one way street. She viewed him as a pet.

    Most of the pain associated with tooth issues is because of inflammation or swelling causing compression of nerve endings. In my experience, a small tab of aspirin in the area does away with 90% of the pain.

    718 I mentioned this before and it is only for educational purposes. I had a couple of root canals over a period of two years. Then i got another fistula near my last root canal.

    I went to a new dentist with crazy high yelp ratings. He told me I was in for some serious oral surgery, and it would be way worse than a root canal and cost a lot more. He sent me to an endodontist and the guy could not determine where the infection was coming from. He put me on antibiotics and said let's see what happens. The infection went away and I didn't have to get a a procedure of any kind. That was a couple of years ago.

    I am not saying that is likely or even possible, just telling about a specific experience.

These are 39-gal lawn and leaf bags. And there is at least another 1-1/2 bags worth that has fallen just this week. My oak tree likes to drop its leaves in the spring.

    I have an appointment with the endodontist next week. It's just an initial visit but I hope this infection is gone by then and that I don't have to get another root canal done. I may just have him pull the tooth if it is still messed up and get an implant. That might be the best plan in the long run.

    A similar thing happened with our older dog. She scratched her eye playing in the rose bushes and it was pretty bad. Took her to the local vet for treatment for two weeks with no results. They sent us to a doggy eye specialist, cost $160 just to walk in the door.


    He was trying to get us to do some big expensive eye treatment where they scrap her cornea flat pack antibiotics in her eye and then sew it shut for two weeks. We said we would have to think about it.

    Two weeks after that her eye had fully healed by itself.

    The human body (and apparently dogs too) has an amazing ability to heal itself given time.

    I remember a bunch of years back when Ebola was a big, big thing. I read up on how some people died while others survived. I came up with a theory that the end-stage blood coagulation was the cause of death. That a widely available prescription drug would keep the blood from coagulating and give the patients body time to fight off the Ebola. Somehow my internet theory got to some health care peeps.

    It is now considered a 'controversial' treatment.

    Like that one student that flummoxed Bobby Occasio Cortez by asking for specifics rather than platitudes, it seems that our betters are particularly skilled in avoiding details and stating problems or solutions in the most ambiguous and amorphous ways.

    Some of the oddest metaphors and abuse of the language come out of them trying to explain how to stand a puddle on its edge.

    Sort of like listening to streaming radio where the only advertisers are "male enhancement" products, and because everyone know that what they are selling isn't even good enough to earn the title "snake oil", the FTC and legal department has created a unique niche of marketing that has someone talking up a product without ever making any actionable claims.

    "Our customers rave about..." You are supposed to trigger on the word "rave" and eisegete "are happily excited and can't stop publicly praising" when "rave" can also mean "talk wildly or incoherently as if one were delirious or insane".

    That is how advertisements are to me now. I listen to all of the marketing techniques and the ways they skirt being sued for false advertising, or for words and phrases that are deliberately deceptive but not out lying.

    Sadly, this skill is also one of the top talents to have to be a Leftist today.

    Perhaps. The $15-20 would likely have to factor in total desk costs, management overhead, etc. I would think that some of that could be mitigated by work-at-home and that the native English speaker could get the job done in a third of the time due to not having to repeat themselves or completely missing the cultural elements within the conversation.

    The office is literally 3200 steps away from my door, yet I work nearly 100% remote. I don't use traffic as an excuse because of the short distance, but traffic in CTX is awful and getting worse by the day because of the Seattle levels of mismanagement, NIMBY and incompetence at play.

    I turn down new opportunities several times a week because it would require me to go out in that mess, then go to an office full of disruptions, exposure to every kid's disease (brought to work through their parents), and pointless meetings that I have to feign interest in.

    Yeah so here's the clip from the Ellen DeGeneres show.

    The "strictly mishly" Cory Booker even laughs about the possibility of getting married to a (checks notes again) woman before or during his completely, laughably hypothetical presidency.

    Boy this Down-Low Brother sure Found Love with a (checks notes for the third time) woman just at the right time, huh?

    Thanks to Jane D'Oh for the story and "strictly mishly."

    The couple will soon announce which store they'll open their gift registry at. They first have to find a place that honors gifts given ironically or sarcastically.

    Police want to question Catholic U.K. journalist Carline Farrow for allegedly "misgendering" a transgender activist's daughter on Twitter. If she doesn't show up for a taped interview, she has been told she will be arrested.

    Since receiving a message from Guildford police Monday night, Farrow has been doxxed, her children and husband have been sexually and violently threatened and she has been called names like "p*ssy" and "c*nt." Enemies siding with the activist, Susie Green, have also signed up her and her husband for porn accounts.

    That's EXACTLY right, and EXACTLY why Prop. 13 passed. People on Social Security were having to pay $10,000/yr. in property taxes, and had to sell their houses to do so.

    Unintended consequence: upgrading/ remodeling your house can trigger a reassessment (since after all, the city and state want the higher property tax to waste), so changing a light bulb (joking here) can result in a 10X increase in property tax. Moral: never do anything to your house that requires pulling a building permit. Because that's pretty much guaranteed to trigger a reassessment, I've been informed.

    Well, just listening to Hannidiot: We now have evidenced of collusion between US campaign officials and a foreign govt. to influence the 2016 presidential election.

    It was Hillary's campaign and the Obama State Dept. with the Ukrainians.

    Ukraine's chief prosecutor has opened an investigation into illegal leaking of Paul Manafort's financial records by certain Ukrainian officials and lawmakers.

    It is claimed he has tape of some of these officials saying they were doing this to help Hillary against Trump.

    Also, the prosecutor mentioned evidence that the Barky's embassy there was running interference to keep the Ukrainian govt from finding out about this.

    So, Barky was committing obstruction of justice in a foreign country. Interfering with Ukraine's legal system.

The CIA guy leaves and a few minutes later they Deep State guy took a walk and promptly stepped in front of a moving bus, killing himself.

    so the feds leak stuff to the media to get court orders and support dem political attacks. (eg, a FISA warrant)

    and the dems leak stuff to the feds to sell the media on their attack stories. (see the real clear article about TDIP posted earlier)

    and the media leaks stuff to other media to justify publishing dem attack BS (I am pretty sure they did this with the Steele fiction, but there are other examples.)


    And after 2 years no one can find collusion.

    444 In case you didn't know, tumeric is a poorly absorbed substance by itself. If you buy tumeric capsules that simply contain tumeric, you're not getting much benefit. It's like 3-5% by weight.

    Buying tumeric with black pepper increases the absorption rate by 2000%.

    So make sure you're supply is tumeric + pepper.

    Leftist Media Fact-Checker Who Falsely, And Absurdly, Spread Lie That US Marines Tattoo Was a Nazi Tattoo and Smeared an ICE Agent Now Hired by NYU Journalism School to... Teach a Class Called "Reporting on the Far Right"

    Perfect.

    This was the woman who looked at the disabled veteran seen working for ICE here:



    ..and retweeted deranged actor Ron Perlman's hysterical, ignorant claim that this was an Iron Cross tattoo on his elbow.

    Um, no. That's not what an Iron Cross looks like.

    Personally, it took me three seconds to recognize that cross as the very-common cross called a "St. Florian Cross" seen on thousands of firefighter's helmets and in police logos.

    And, apparently, serving as unit logos for troops in Afghanistan.

    But she blared out to the world he was a Secret Nazi.

    A fact-checker.

    Who doesn't bother checking facts.

    Even when working as a fact-checker for The New Yorker, which, once upon a time, prided itself on its meticulous and almost-unerring fact-checking.

    And now she'll be teaching a class on "reporting on the far right."

    Will "correctly identifying common shapes" be a prerequisite for the course?

    Will she instruct students on how to identify Nazis with a 100,000% success rate (that is, you identify 1000 times as many Nazis as you actually see)?

    They're not permitted to fail. They don't even have to pay a penalty. (This "journalist" was immediately hired by Media Matters to continue her nonpartisan journ0lisming after her firing from the New Yorker.)

    Now a J-school deems her eminent enough to teach a class on "Reporting on the Far Right." Does that include the part about recklessly -- libelously -- callously -- branding people as Nazis without the briefest moment of consideration?

    The Clique -- the Guild -- the Gilded Class -- the Meritless Meritocracy -- gets its jobs and promotions based on politics and connections and racial/sexual calculus, not on achievement or talent.

    It's a system that they all benefit from, so they'll go down fighting to protect it absolutely.

    They know that they must all hang together or they shall surely hang apart.

    And speaking of this miserable, entitled, unfirable class:

    huffmanmacyhillary.jpg

    That's super-progressive, super-concerned-about-the-poor-and-disadvantaged and super-interested in "fairness" William Macy and Felicity Huffman showing off their I-Voted-for-Hillary stickers. It was probably about the time of this picture's taking that they were scheming how best to game the system and lie and bribe the gatekeepers of the Gilded Class to let their deficient daughter into a somewhat-above-average college.

    LOL: And now Twitter has apparently banned Twitter-addicted absurd cuck John Podhoretz for remarking upon this fine "journalist."




    I can't object to the censorship here -- John Podhoretz is one of those eat-me-last Pet Conservatives who applauds when other people are deplatformed.

    It's good to see his fat ass booted off. Give him something to think about.

    And maybe give him some free time to do some squats.

    Update: Lizzy writes:

    Talia [Lavin] is also the one who was weaving all sorts of complex conspiracy theories about the true meaning of "learn to code" - and likely was a prime reason that phrase resulted in insta-suspension of twitter accounts.

    I can't confirm all of that but as this thread shows, she certainly was obsessive about pushing to get "Learn to Code" branded as coordinated far-right hate speech.

    Here she is pushing the "harassment" angle.

    She really made her own cottage industry of it, writing for the far leftwing New Republic that Learn to Code might be connected to (gasp!) GamerGate.

    And then people started getting banned, automatically, for speaking the Forbidden Words "Learn to Code."

    Whatever that term might mean, it, like "white supremacy", has no real-world meaning in America, as it does not denote a detectable, much less, significant, political or social reality.


    "Left" and "right" are stupid and useless terms, esp. as currently used, anyway.


    Statist, authoritarian, racist, anti-freedom, lawless, constitutionally illiterate - these are terms that apply to those to whom the meaningless descriptor "left" is usually assigned. Clear thinking starts with clear expression.

And now that there's clear evidence that the pool was being saturated with dumb-dumbs, well that can't improve the standing. Unless, of course, the dumb-dumbs are actually smarter than the pool they already had but were just dumb enough to get fooled out of their money.

    I think the context was a shooter nut who had all sorts of leftist iconography on his social media page/s too but the MFM and friends went ape over him having an Iron Cross image too proving the shooter was an alt-right neo-Nazi.

    Something like that anyway.

    And, oddly enough, they ignored the Commie iconography and that the Iron Cross shape is Germanic and not Nazi with Russian-maintained German WW2 war cemeteries as well as Western-maintained ones and WW1 German war cemeteries all having stylized-Iron Cross-shaped markers. (Especially when we all know that the Russians are very tolerant of Nazism.)

    116 It's insane. It's a journalism school course and it's focusing on reporting on only one side of the equation.


    If they are even considering the use of the phrase "Far Right" then they are exhibiting signs that they don't even have the vocabulary to describe their ideological/political/philosophical/religious opponents.

    It isn't a horizontal post-modern "left" vs "right" that simply has one amoral value system warring with another as they contest against how man relates to the State, they fail to recognize the vertical component in terms of man's relationship to God.

    Thus they can't possibly comprehend let alone articulate concepts of honor, liberty, duty, character, loyalty. Totally incapable of accepting that there are things that transcend The Now, and impossibly far from understanding the Imago Dei and thus will always look at their neighbor as another target to subjugate and oppress.

    172 It's interesting, I was initially drawn to William H Macy because the ugly people in Hollywood are often the best actors. Same reason I was initially fooled into thinking Candy Crowley must be a quality journalist. "Merit" in Hollywood is comprised of about 90% looks, 8% who you know, and 2% actual talent so you figure the ugly ones are most likely to be at least somewhat convincing when they play pretend. A little rule of thumb that helps me wade through the endless mountains of trash on screen but it's obviously not foolproof. Anyway, you would think someone like Macy, who beat those odds in that godforsaken town with those looks, would have less tolerance for lazy, talentless kids. I gather I'm supposed to know who his wife is. I don't and will assume she's probably a mediocrity like the kids.

    Scandal-Besieged Alexandria Donkey-Chompers Removed From Board of Justice Democrat PAC in Wake of Revelations About Failure to Disclose Key Information

    I'm racist for linking this but you're racist and sexist for reading it.

    Loud and ignorant, ignorant and loud.

    And corrupt.

    Gee, who could have guessed that socialism would involve slushfunds and self-dealing?

    Democratic Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez and her top aide are no longer board members of the outside PAC credited with orchestrating her political rise, according to a corporate document filed Friday to a Washington, D.C., agency.

    The New York Democrat and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, joined the board of Justice Democrats in December 2017, according to the political action committee’s website. It also said the two held "legal control over the entity" at the same time it was playing a key role in supporting Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign prior to her shock victory over incumbent Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in June 2018.

    Cortez says she was actually removed from the board in 2018. But only now are the documents being filed.

    Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were officially removed from Justice Democrats’ board on March 15, according to a corporate document filed that day to the Washington, D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.

    It's unclear why it took Justice Democrats more than eight months to formally remove Ocasio-Cortez from its board. The PAC did not respond to a request for comment.

    Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that she and Chakrabarti controlled Justice Democrats while it simultaneously supported her primary campaign.

    About ten years ago when I was working in downtown Philly, there was a woman protesting outside City Hall every day, claiming she was fired from her job of 20 years because she was black. So HR was going through the records one day, realized they had a black woman working there, and fired her?

    197 I just went to the Emerald Robinson tweet and read the thread - you know the sad thing? Every never trumper could have redeemed themselves if they had collectively tried to come up with conservative policy positions that could be supported by the Trump administration and pushed them - they would have met with a fair amount of success and they would have moved the conservative needle forward.

    Instead they wasted it. It could have been their best years ever but they had to make it their worst. Oh, oh, we're afraid to follow you brother Boswell!

    Except it was never their intention to move the needle the direction they say they wanted it. It was a ruse. It was institutional deception. They never had a conservative fight they wouldn't ultimately back down from except the personal one against Trump. Because Trump had the potential to become a real change agent. Their best years would have been continuing to milk the Right for time, space, and money while losing gracefully. It was a niche market.

    Ted Koppel: Trump's Not Imagining Things, The Liberal Media Are Out to Get Him

    Obvious, but it's a statement against liberal media interest so it counts more in court.

    "I'm terribly concerned that when you talk about the New York Times these days, when you talk about the Washington Post these days, we're not talking about the New York Times of 50 years ago," Koppel noted to journalist and author Marvin Kalb earlier this month. "We are not talking about the Washington Post of 50 years ago. We're talking about organizations that I believe have, in fact, decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States."

    Koppel added that "we have things appearing on the front page of the New York Times right now that never would have appeared 50 years ago. Analysis, commentary on the front page."

    So [Trump's] perception that the establishment press is out to get him-- doesn't mean that great journalism is not being done; it is -- but the notion that most of us look upon Donald Trump as being an absolute fiasco, he's not mistaken in that perception. And he's not mistaken when so many of the liberal media, for example, describe themselves as belonging to "the resistance"? What does that mean? That's not said by people who consider themselves reporters, objective reporters of facts. That's the kind of language that's used by people who genuinely believe — and rather suspect with some justification -- that Donald Trump is bad for the United States ... and the sooner he's out of office the better they will like it.

    Koppel added to Kalb that "we are not the reservoir of objectivity that I think we were."

    Video of his remarks at the link.

    The Times of over 50 years ago won a pulitzer for their reporting on how marvelous the soviet potemkin villages were.

    I don't think the media was ever a " reservoir of objectivity" as he claims. THEY have not changed, what has changed is that WE have more resources to see the truth and that has pushed them to be more obvious.

    51 Ted's always been a lightweight. Maybe not by media standards, where dumb is pretty common, but a lightweight. And it's hilarious and ridiculous that he pretends to believe they were a "well of objectivity" or whatever, before.


    But there *has* been a marked decline. Matter of degree, not kind, but pretty dramatic in the last few years, and of course especially in the Trump Era.


    But the distortion was extreme in the Bush era too. Just not - generally - as ridiculous, histrionic, or systematic. And in reverse, of course, the non-coverage of Obama, his administration's disastrous failures and illegalities - which remain completely unknown to many many Americans to this day - was just as damaging to the country.

    59 To me, the turning point seemed to be Fox News. It was like once a non-liberal new outlet had a mass audience, the liberal media collectively decided they had to notch it up.

    And they seem to keep cranking it up to where it's now so over the top even a few honest liberals are embarrassed.

    The media has been liberal my entire lifetime, but I have to admit I preferred the world where at least put a little energy into looking objective.

He admits he was always a bad businessman (most artists are) and that Sony got him roped into a deal where they owned his next 5 albums, and he was gonna earn almost nothing. So he told them he wanted to renegotiate that deal, and they said "Too Bad, we got a contract, we Own You."

    So he said, "Guess what, you don't own shit, because there ain't gonna be any new albums, you guys enjoy owning 100% of Nothin'. " And I gotta admire him for sticking it to them like that - meanwhile, he's still one of the most popular performance acts today.

    Koppell just admitted that "journalists" are nothing but people horking up their pathetic and idiotic opinions on the nation, not reporting actual news. And they're definitely not telling us what we need to know about our government.
    And reporting the truth? They wouldn't know what that was if it bit them on the leg during a broadcast.


    I take it that we now have The Official Green Light to ignore every one of them. I've been doing that for years.

    They are too lazy to verify stuff, or they don't want to because they just want to throw feces. They lie, blatantly and when caught they just shrug and reload with more feces.

    Typically, another gray eminence gets it partly right but also utterly wrong.

    These "organizations" -- or decomposing aggregates of leftist lunatics living on the fumes of their organizational legacies -- couldn't care less about the United States. They hate Donald Trump because 1. he can't be controlled by them and their power-mongering masters, 2. because he threatens everything they and their power-mongering masters stand for and 3. because he's good for America and they hate America.

The NY Times paper of "record" mission is on behalf of the communist infiltration, and perhaps some big names that were part of it, idk.

    Maybe they used to hide it better, and now that they are caught with their pants down, Uncle Ted is trying to explain it away as just a little bias ...

    MILAN (AP) - A bus driver in northern Italy abducted 51 children and their chaperones Wednesday, threatening them over a 40-minute ordeal before setting the vehicle on fire when he was stopped by a Carabinieri blockade.

    Officers broke glass windows in the back of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said.

    As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24.

    De Marchis told Sky TG24 that the driver, an Italian citizen of Senegalese origin in his 40s, threatened the passengers, telling them that "no one would survive today" as he commandeered the bus carrying two middle-school classes to a nearby gym in Cremona province, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Milan.

    136 "I'm terribly concerned that when you talk about the New York Times these days, when you talk about the Washington Post these days, we're not talking about the New York Times of 50 years ago," Koppel noted to journalist and author Marvin Kalb earlier this month. "We are not talking about the Washington Post of 50 years ago. We're talking about organizations that I believe have, in fact, decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States."

    Koppel is close, but he's still missing the main point ... by 180 degrees. The New York Slimes and Washington Post were never concerned with what was "good for America". Quite the opposite. They always looked to take America down. They printed whatever they thought would hurt America the most.

    The New York Slimes and Washington Post are concerned that Trump actually IS good for America - and that pisses them off to no end. They want people like Barky - retards who hate America and want to cut America down to size (if not totally destroy us) - leading things. They don't want someone like Trump, who loves America and is actually working to put AMerica back in its rightful place well ahead of everyone else.

    And that's who all you liberals/leftists always forget about.

    Sure you got the popular vote. Maybe. Before we make any rash statements, I want to see the voter roles from every state and compare them to some green card lists and asylum lists and a few other things that can help determine if someone is not a citizen.

    And now we see why they are so adamant against a citizenship question on the census. Not so much because of any representation shuffling altho that's part of it. No it's because then the country (it's citizens) would have a glimmer of how bad the foreign invasion of our country is. And it's only a glimmer cause a lot of people won't answer truthfully or at all and that's if you can find them. Plus some will get missed.

    It's been posited that the margin of Trump's loss in California alone could be the difference on who actually won the so called popular vote.

    I don't remember being asked if I wanted to see non citizens vote in my elections. Cause I don't want them to but if they do, they have to pay a price for their non-citizen voting. How about $10,000 to get your registration card? And no welfare or health care for 10 years. And no abuelas getting dragged up here from the old country.

    Having the pretense of "objectivity" gave the media a huge amount of power to set the debate and decide the direction of the country. They were allowed to be the referees. But that's is sailing away.

    174 See the problem with the media today isn't that they are less objective -- they are, but that's not the main problem.

    Its that they're no longer professionals. They aren't any damned good at their job. They don't understand the news or how to report it. They don't even care.

    Back when Sam Donaldson was being a turd stain on the White House lawn, there were structures in place, old grizzled editors, traditions, and professional standards that kept him from going full Acosta. They wouldn't let opinion slip into the news reports, they made sure the lede was the heart of the news story, there was no "hide the party" crap. They would actually report stuff that hurt their own side, reluctantly.

    175 I don't care if Koppel likes or hates Trump. I don't care if he things Trump is an embarrassment as a president. He's right about the media's role.

    I think he's wrong about they way the press used to be.

    Dan Rather reported the Dallas school children cheered when they heard President Kennedy was dead in 1963. CBS was wrong. The kids cheered getting a half day from school before they were told *anything* about the assassination.

    CBS News was always doing that kind of shit.

Worse yet, members of the government coalition are demanding Ambassador Grenell be PNG'd and otherwise stop acting like the High Commissioner of an Occupying Power.

    Married life is most excellent! Of course, we are still in different states, which makes it difficult, but we're coping.

If you knew nothing about them except what was in that movie you'd think they were a bunch of choirboys who just stayed home with their wives and kids when they weren't on stage. I don't think you even see them with a drink in their hand, let alone any drugs. Or groupies.

She was on vacation and was promised a free television if she went to this timeshare presentation. So she went, didn't buy anything, and asked for her free tv. Nope, they said, you only get the tv if you buy the timeshare. But that's not what I was promised, she said. Sue me, they said.

Also fun to see the dynamics of how a band put together it's songs and its albums. Loved when they're all arguing who's songs are "strong" and who's songs are crap. (And actually every song off that album was great)

    327 I know of one other person who defeated a timeshare salesperson, way
    back in the 80s. She was the younger sister of a guy I worked with.
    She was on vacation and was promised a free television if she went to
    this timeshare presentation. So she went, didn't buy anything, and
    asked for her free tv. Nope, they said, you only get the tv if you buy
    the timeshare. But that's not what I was promised, she said. Sue me,
    they said.



    She was a lawyer. She sued them. And won her free television.

    ---

    Oh, they gave us exactly what they promised-- including cash-- without a hitch.

    The key was not being swayed by "4 days in Hawaii with airfare" and "all kinds of properties that aren't resorts."

    In fact, they said their partner company had "castle" accommodations. So I made them show me the castles. We went to the big tv in the middle of the room and everything. It was the Big Close.


    The castles? They are 800 square foot stone houses built in the 1800s or earlier. Not castles. "Stone Crapshacks" that might not have heat, electricity or plumbing.


    Then I asked about Japan. Every hotel they had in "Japan" looked like it could be in "Idaho."

    We got cash and a Jeep tour.

    The real pros, what few are out there, you never know what their politics are. Back in the early 1980s, the ABC news anchor was a guy named Frank Reynolds. He was a real professional. He just did his job, did not pontificate or anything of the sort. He died in I think '83 or '84 of cancer. And it was not until he died that it came out that Reynolds was a conservative. No one knew, because he never talked about it. That was not what he was there for. Unfortunately it was commie dickhead Peter Jennings that took his place.

    But the distortion was extreme in the Bush era too. Just not - generally - as ridiculous, histrionic, or systematic. And in reverse, of course, the non-coverage of Obama, his administration's disastrous failures and illegalities - which remain completely unknown to many many Americans to this day - was just as damaging to the country.

    It actually got really "over the top", "jumped the shark", whatever by the late 1980s. I watched it happen. Back then I got all the major newsweeklies, daily paper, watched all the alphabets, etc. By 1990 it was so blatant I could not handle it anymore and dropped them all. It was not "news reporting", if it ever was, but only blatant propaganda. And while I didn't think it possible, in the years since it has only gotten worse.

There's a Star Trek blooper reel in which Kirk in the command chair gives a routine order to Uhura, and she's supposed to respond with a simple, perfunctory, five or six word line. In take after take she cannot seem to get the words right or forgets them. I don't know how many tries it took before the director could get a "print" out of the brief scene.

He was the scum of the earth OR his brain tumor made him insane. He got involved with the equivalent of communists, the people who supposedly tortured him, to push lies because he was truly just an asshole.

    I think Trump laying down a marker.

    After all, McCain was committing sedition and trying to overturn a legitimate election by the American people.

    There are a lot of illegalities and very questionable acts being committed by the NeverTrumpers and Dims.

    Trump's letting them know that they will be called out and publicly shamed when their deeds come to light.

    392 Time share salesmen have no sense of shame, embarrassment, pity, remorse or fear.

    We bought our previous house - Chateau Merde - from a guy who turned out to be a time share salesman.

    After whiffing on doing things on the punch list, the realtor did them out of his own pocket so the deal wouldn't fall through.

    We later looked him online and found a piece he'd written about how old age pensioners were ideal targets for time share pitches because they had money and weren't as sharp as they used to be, i.e., were perfect marks.

    Nice guy.

    Shame Is Part of the Kink, Continued: Kellyanne Conway Blasts Own Husband For Claiming That He Has Diagnosed Trump with Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    Look, if we're going to start naming politicians and "journalists" who have Narcissistic Personality Disorder, we're going to be here all day.

    Jim Acosta? Do you have any thoughts to contribute once you get done pushing that 20 year old woman out of the way of your camera-line?

    The cucking here is deliciously shameful. I don't know if it's Kellyanne cucking her husband, or Trump cucking Kellyanne by directing her to throw her husband under the bus or what.

    I don't know if we're watching the end of a marriage in trouble or what.

    I don't know if Shame Is Part of the Kink, but Noted Experts at the Bulwark tell me it's totally a huge part of it.

    Trump tweeted this, blasting George Conway after his 200th attack on Trump:



    So now Kellyanne Conway is asked about Trump's response, and she says it's well-justified.



    This is really getting weird now. People are going to start whispering.

    30 There's no mystery here, I've watched enough marriages end with friends and family. This is what it looks like to watch a marriage die, it's kind of sickening.

    Things like money and kids make people stick together longer than they should, because it is such a huge mess to disentangle and nobody wants to go through that.

    It reminds me of my brother in law, I knew his marriage was ending even before he did, when he was over at my house and his wife called him, and the ring tone he'd picked for her was the RIII! RIII! RIIII!!! from Psycho.

    65 Not how it works for Catholics. If you get an annulment, you were never married. The annulment doesn't end the marriage but recognizes it was never originally valid.
    Posted by: Someguy at March 20, 2019 04:33 PM (dy5uS)

    For like super strict catholics, maybe. But I'm catholic, and I know a lot of divorced Catholics.

    Also, it's not that easy to get an annulment in the catholic church. The church is basically saying "this marriage was never valid in the eyes of god" and short of some kind of bigamy situation or extremely abusive situation where everyone feels horrible for the abused partner, the church doesn't like to say that.

    No, we are now talking out loud.


    Remember, Kelly is a Catholic girl and divorce is a no-no. Of course, it happens anyway.


    Disagreements, sure. Don't like Trump, fine. But public comments daily? Sounding like a 14 year old jerk? What kind of an azz does this to his wife, in the most spectacular position of her career? This is a world-class douche move, Mr Kelly Conway.

    69 I think Kellyanne's quote is appropriate. If my wife publically called somebody out over stupid stuff, and somebody called her out about it, I would *totally* understand the response, and could say so.

    That doesn't mean I don't love my wife.

    76 I wouldn't judge a marriage based on what the individual members of couple looks like. I'm assuming that they had enough things in common initially to bring them together. I do know couples of really varying political opinions who somehow manage to make it work, but unless you don't discuss politics it must be quite stressful at time. In addition, she works for Trump so she's obligated to defend him and I think she admires a number of his personal qualities.

    81 General rules of polite society would say that...

    a) you don't insult your wife's boss in a public way
    b) as the boss of the wife, you don't insult her husband and call him a bad husband
    and
    c) as the wife caught in the middle of this, you don't publicly attack your husband.

    Right?
    Posted by: Harry Paratestes at M

    Sure. But after the husband repeatedly and publicly insults his wife's boss , rules b and c no longer apply.

    86 I don't know who started it but I'm tired of hearing about this stupid Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It wasn't Barky's problem and I'm sick of the stupid phrase being thrown around. Barky hated the West. Period. It was no "personality disorder". He was borderline retarded, untalented, incompetent and grossly uncoordinated and envied (and hated) the West like there was nothing else in the universe.

    Let's get one thing straight - psychology is one of the most bullshitty of fields there is. It is bullshit piled on top of bullshit, surrounded by bullshit with a bullshit garnish. Most of the crap they call "disorders" are nothing but out-of-fashion traits or the symptoms of assholishness and evil. There is no Narcissistic Personality DIsorder. Being an asshole is not a disorder.

    Pop psychology is one of the worst things ever to appear on this Earth. Psychologists, themselves, are annoying enough without everyone else wanting to pretend that they are an annoying, stupid, 98% incorrect psychologist, too.

    92 This is indeed a n uncomfortable situation. It's just....tacky. And you wonder why Trump is even getting involved----unless Kellyanne wants it that way.

    The only thing I can come up with is that George Conway must be behind something else, something bigger , some involvement to really hurt his Presidency. When Trump tweets viciously against someone, that means he knows that person did him WRONG.
