The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“It was chaos. I was just treading water; things just didn’t feel good. There were so many students, and so much going on, that it was impossible for me to reach them.” Quamiir Trice


Quote II

“One of the consequences of such notions as ‘entitlements’ is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.” Thomas Sowell

Quote III

“No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems – of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.”Thomas Sowell

*****

As a tiger cannot change its stripes. A Communist cannot change its true color. Who other than Communists would kill people in a church.The biggest bias in "news" is what gets reported and what doesn't. The "Left" loves Daniel Ortega. Now if this was some "Right wing strongman" we wouldn't hear the end about this massacre.


*****


The airwaves over the past 24 hours or so have been full of the awful POTUS we have. Leave it to Ms Lindsey to flash his brilliance.


Don't you have a muttering drooling Senate colleague to attend to?

So much for the GAINZZ. Man cannot live by meat alone.

Archaeologists have uncovered the earliest evidence of bread-making at a site in northeastern Jordan. Dating back some 14,400 years, the discovery shows that ancient hunter-gatherers were making and eating bread 4,000 years before the Neolithic era and the introduction of agriculture. So much for the “Paleo Diet” actually being a thing.

Bread-making predates agriculture, according to a new study published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. That’s quite the revelation, given the conventional thinking that bread only appeared after the advent of farming. The discovery means that ancient hunter-gatherers were using the wild ancestors of domesticated cereals, such as wild einkorn and club-rush tubers, to make flatbread-like food products. What’s more, the new paper shows that bread had already become an established food staple prior to the Neolithic period and the Agricultural Revolution.

Living in a state with over 10,000 lakes I have always heard keep your pets and small children away from algae. And this is the reason why: A deadly algae bloom has broken out in Florida.

There is a real mess going on in Southern Florida. Lake Okeechobee, which is the second largest body of fresh water in the US, as well as other waterways, are being overrun by a massive bloom of blue-green algae. This bloom is threatening both tourism and health. The science here is very interesting because blue-green algae, are not algae; they are bacteria, capable of serving up some of the world's most toxic chemicals.

Although cyanobacteria, which can fix nitrogen and perform photosynthesis, play an important part in the earth's ecosystem, when blooms form, especially usually when the water is still, polluted, or warm, a substantial amount of a variety of neurotoxins is produced. Neurotoxins are not to be taken lightly.

Just wondering out loud here. Did the JEF have anything to do with Netflix's poor performance?

Netflix signed up far fewer subscribers than it forecast in the second quarter of 2018.
The company said it added 670,000 streaming customers in the U.S., below its guidance of 1.2 million new subscribers. Internationally, the company added 4.47 million new subscribers, short of its guidance for 5 million. Wall Street had expected the company to report even more subscribers than it had forecast.

Filed under The ONT, always looking out for you. Water bottles in your hot car could be a problem.

lot of us are guilty of this: leaving water bottles in our cars.

Midwest City fire officials said it could start a fire inside your car.

If a plastic bottle is left in your car and the right amount of sunlight hits it at just the right angle, a car seat could catch fire.

Once again, a scary black inanimate object comes in very handy. Retired cop with AR-15 to the rescue.

The AR-15 is the most vilified gun in America. Gun control zealots continue to maintain that there are no legitimate, peaceful uses for these firearms in civilian hands. They claim that the only purpose of such weapons is to slaughter the innocent or similar such nonsense.

However, they’re valuable personal defense weapons that can end threats a handgun just can’t. Take, for example, what recently transpired in Oklahoma.

I don't know what shipyard built her, but they built her right.

Always sad to see a United States Navy vessel go, but damn if she didn't go with honor, still serving her Country till the very last wave closed atop the highest mast.

A toast to all who served aboard, all through her life on the seas.

63 Early humanoids ate whatever they could get their hands on. Scavenging kill sites of other predators, hunting, fish, fruits, vegetables, roots, grubs, whatever.
Sometimes they had a little extra which they saved for later.

Some hunter/gatherer, probably a woman, had a pouch full of gathered grain that got wet. She put the wet grain glop on a hot rock by the fire to dry it so it could be eaten.

77 If you don't understand why Trump would be seeking better US-Russia relations, here it is...

It's in our best geopolitical interests as a nation to keep constantly leveraging Russia and China against each other.

Right now, China is more, you know, ascendant, so it's a good idea to make nice with Russia so they'll work with us against China.

When Russia is in the better position, we work with China to undermine Russia. When China is in the better position, we work with Russia to undermine China.

102 That's funny, BTH! I was talking with a friend a couple of years ago about that very song. The only song he remembered called "We Close Our Eyes" was by Oingo Boingo.

I only knew of the entirely different song by Go West. It seemed weird to me, because the Go West song was a huge hit, or so I'd thought.

For those who've heard one, or the other, or neither, here's both of them.

"When the retired officer thought he had fired all of the ammunition in his AR-15, he told deputies he set it in the bed of his truck and took out a second AR-15. According to the affidavit, the retired officer told deputies that he fired one more shot to see if Benson would react since he didn’t see any movement in his car."

They were wrong about that. It was based on a complete failure to understand what was going on.

So I am at once astonished and unsurprised with this conclusion that Putin just wants to create chaos in the US political system.

That is just stupid. Is Putin the Joker, Heath Ledgee style? Random chaos just for the fun of it is not what nation states do - not even evil nation states.

You have to have purpose, cause, and work to your benefit. Because the cost is just too high - random chaos is random. If you get caught at it, it costs you something. In return for what?

They were wrong about that. It was based on a complete failure to understand what was going on.

So I am at once astonished and unsurprised with this conclusion that Putin just wants to create chaos in the US political system.

That is just stupid. Is Putin the Joker, Heath Ledgee style? Random chaos just for the fun of it is not what nation states do - not even evil nation states.

You have to have purpose, cause, and work to your benefit. Because the cost is just too high - random chaos is random. If you get caught at it, it costs you something. In return for what?

I can't even.

Oh, and Ben Shapiro is a tool.

I was perving on her again just the other days. Ghosts of Mars, and then She Spies. The latter was pretty good, and so was cancelled after two seasons.

She has Hashimoto's thyroid disease, which causes the weight gain. It's an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid.

261 So with all the TDS displays this week, I am becoming increasingly convinced that the left will only continue to go further and further down this rabbit hole of insanity.

Things random assholes wouldn't even say in real life are now being said by mainstream media types on a regular basis. Implicit support of violence is growing more common and will probably eventually become outright calls for violence.

The deep state / establishment types are doubling down at every opportunity. Look at Brennan and arrogant Strzok. Even our most cucked GOPers who I had hoped were starting to see they could, at the very least, ride Trump's coattails to success if only for their own benefit have regressed again.

279 Does it only get worse from here or is this only the final brayings of a dying donkey led by a few bad actors and followed only by an extremely vocal minority?"

The last 2 days have re-convinced me of just how out of touch the DC Beltway and the NYC media circles with the rest of the country. (except for the fanatics in California) In those echo chambers, it seemed like everyone went insane, and the country was about to fall!

But outside those very limited areas, nobody in the rest of the country has really given a damn about this "story". It's just a poo flinging shitshow that means nothing to nobody. So I suppose I'm saying that in the fever swamps of DC and NYC and San Fran this will get worse and worse - but in the other 98% of the country, it's going to be mostly ignored.

It's hard to believe, but I think it gets worse. When kids return to college campuses, they will be drafted into protests. I'm sure planning has already been completed.

If they re-take the House, they may simmer down a bit. The confirmation of Kav will whip them into a frenzy though.

If they don't take the House...violent, collective nervous breakdown. Just preparing self bcz the outrage seems to keep notching up. It's all noise at this point for me. I kind of drift in and out of it.

Weight is a big problem with Hashimoto's and other underactive thyroid conditions. Low thyroid hormone lowers base metabolic rate, and it seems it's not restored even when taking thyroid hormone.

To much exercise can exasperate it as well as dieting.

308 Gotta go. But since WDS didn't get back at me about Michael Aquino, I'll leave y'all with this:

US Army Lt. Col. Aquino was one of the spookiest people our country has ever coughed up. He was a psyops officer who quite literally wrote the book ("From PsyOp to MindWar") on mass mind control techniques.

Also, he was a Satanist who was stationed at the Presidio, where he split off of the Church of Satan (he was a high ranking member), and started his own splinter sect among the other officers and enlisted men called the Temple of Set. The cult was accused of ritually abusing children, but I don't think it was proven. As far as I know, Aquino still runs the Temple of Set.

Freaking crazy, right?

351 So with all the TDS displays this week, I am becoming increasingly convinced that the left will only continue to go further and further down this rabbit hole of insanity.

Things random assholes wouldn't even say in real life are now being said by mainstream media types on a regular basis. Implicit support of violence is growing more common and will probably eventually become outright calls for violence.

The deep state / establishment types are doubling down at every opportunity. Look at Brennan and arrogant Strzok. Even our most cucked GOPers who I had hoped were starting to see they could, at the very least, ride Trump's coattails to success if only for their own benefit have regressed again.

Does it only get worse from here or is this only the final brayings of a dying donkey led by a few bad actors and followed only by an extremely vocal minority?


I see, maybe for the first time, that they are capable of doing things that would "stupid their way into a civil war" to quote Kurt Schlichter. And they have no clue which side would win. And not care about the damage they might do in the process. I was too moderate (yeah I know) to know they are as blind as Lady McBeth.

I will hold tight until 2020 (two scoops, two more judges, two terms), when the lunacy either gets more rabid or more depressed.

Art Bell and Noory had several guests talking about Jack Parsons and weird shit he was into.

There was something about him trying to open a "portal" to the spirit world or something. You've probably heard tales of these locations around the country and the world that are supposed to have supernatural effects going on.

IIRC, there was supposed to be some "portal" at one of these Parsons was interested in.

Mike, I had a similar reaction from a niece and her husband, both Army. They are used to 9mm and dinky ittle 223 stuff. Then I pulled out a 45-70 cartridge with a 500 something .grain bullet. That got their attention. But it only took them about two shots each to learn they REALLY enjoy black powder cartridge shooting.

I'm not afraid of the S and W 500 magnum but never understood their appeal. For the same cost I can get an excellent though not fancy flintlock, and enough powder, ball, flints and other gear for a busy year of shooting.

Speaking of "scary gunz!!!", today I stopped by the indoor range and worked on my 1911 shooting. For the Nth time, confirmed that if I can just focus and suppress the flinch, the crude sights are just fine for relevant (short) ranges.


Weak hand-only was disappointing, strong hand-only a bit better. But for whatever reason (geometry of grip and trigger arrangement), the 1911 has always been the worst for unsupported shooting, for me. XD and esp. the CZ-83 pretty easy to shoot decently one-handed.

I like to fire a revolver with one hand. I also like using that hand again.

They have a big wide strap that comes back and goes around your neck. You push forward against the strap with both hands. Firms your hold right up, and causes muscles instead of tendons to aborb the shock. Would not like to fire it all day long.

392 Confidence in the country plunged during W's second term, about vanished with the next 2 elections, and remains low. The desperation of the American part of the electorate is real enough, and the mini miracle of Trump has applied brakes to the free-fall.

SCOTT WALKER IS A RUSSIAN SPY!!!
And Open Thread

Yesterday the Usual Suspects -- the twitter circle-jerk Smart Set of people who have proven for years they are not terribly smart at all -- were so a-quiver over a story that alleged Russian agent Mariia Butina had met with a US presidential candidate that they nearly vibrated themselves to an adjacent alternate plane of existence.

I wanted to write about this, but I didn't, because I'm exhausted by them. They have literally exhausted me with their daily freak-outs and Two Minute Hates.

But what I wanted to write was the following:

1. You seem to be convinced that because a spy attempted to make contact with a US person, that US person is therefore guilty of some crime. Are you naive enough to believe that foreign intelligence services don't routinely attempt to make contact with US citizens? Are you vicious enough to claim that any of these thousands of people so-contacted every year should be accused of being spies?

You are aware, of course, that foreign intelligence services attempting to make some kind of low-level, preparatory contact with a target is a common event, whereas the target's agreement to become a spy or trait is a rather rare event, right?

2. Aren't you just jumping to the conclusion that your beloved, cherished Conspiracy Theory urges you towards -- that the candidate in question must be Trump and that the Trump must be a spy because come on, All the Famous People on Twitter know he's a spy?

If Jim Hoft or one of the deplorables you routinely mock in your daily Best Twitter Fwiendz circle-jerk were leaping to such an agrees-with-my-bias conclusion about Barack Obama, wouldn't you mock him as a true-believing zealot?

What makes you any different, apart from your claim that you are different -- better, in fact?

I wanted to write that, but I didn't, because they are tirelessly shrill in their denunciations and unfounded accusations, and you never know who the next person they'll accuse of being a RUSSIAN SPY might be.

Well, it turns out the candidate that Mariia Butina contacted wasn't Trump -- it was Scott Walker. Who is not a spy, because the Daily Twitter Circle-Jerk doesn't think he's a spy, and therefore the Daily Twitter Circle-Jerk's previous "logic" -- if a Russian attempts to contact you, you must be a spy -- is now switched to the "OFF" position.



What will you say now about Scott Walker? What if someone on the left accuses someone you support of being a RUSSIAN SPY based on such thin evidence?

What will you say, given that you've already endorsed precisely this stupid, retarded, utterly non-elite idea that anyone contacted by a foreign national must be some kind of asset for the government of that foreign national?

And indeed -- the left is in fact now accusing Scott Walker of "Borscht Politics:"

In other herring-scented news, it seems that there are hundreds of very weird and wonderful photos of Mariia Butina, the Russian gun-moll whom the FBI busted Monday on criminal lobbying charges, floating around the Intertoobz. I mean, really. Check some of these out.

...

Oops, sorry. That's Scott Walker, the goggle-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage their midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin, and recently appointed midwest sales director for the Foxconn Company, grinning his fool head off with Ms. Butina. From the Capital-Times:


Butina wrote on her Russian-language blog (translated via Google Translate) that meeting Walker "will remain in my memory forever."

"With genuine interest and ready to ask a question on the topic of Russian-American relations, I went to him. And then something happened that I did not expect: the first words in many, many days in Russian, I heard from the future nominee in the US presidency from the Republican Party, who, having learned that I from Russia with a smile said 'Hello!', And during the conversation he remembered another word: 'Thank you!'" Butina wrote.

"We talked about Russia, I did not hear any aggression towards our country, the president or my compatriots," Butina wrote about her conversation with Walker. "How to know, maybe such meetings are the beginning of a new dialogue between Russia and the US and back from the Cold War to the peaceful existence of the two great powers ?!"

Confronted with this memento of the lovely time they had together, Walker had his spokescritter issue the following lame-ass statement to The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Walker spokesman Brian Reisinger said by email that while Walker was in Tennessee, he "appeared in an atrium area while waiting to deliver his remarks, where event attendees had the chance to say hello. There were thousands of people at the convention and many of them approached the governor and asked to say hello and take a photo with him."

Just a friendly guy, our Scottie.

Something truly stinks of borscht in Wisconsin politics. Besides Walker, there are dozens of photos showing former Milwaukee County sheriff--and full-time Happy Meal medal recipient—David Clarke enjoying the hospitality in Moscow, and Wisconsin Senator Ron (Shreds of Freedom) Johnson was one of those senators who spent the past Fourth of July in Russia.

That's from Esquire Magazine, by the way. Not a huge or well-respected media outfit, but a bit more important than the low-level blogs the Smart Set usually spends its time dunking on.

Now that the Very Liberal Republican Wing has approved of precisely this sort of smear tactic when deployed against Trump -- how exactly can they argue against it when it's used against Scott Walker and Ron Johnson? ( I assume the Smart Set agrees that David Clarke IS in fact a RUSSIAN SPY, because the Smart Set doesn't like him, and anyone the Smart Set doesn't like is a RUSSIAN SPY.)

So congrats on pouring gasoline on the Red-baiting, witch-hunting fire, Social Justice Warriors of the Nominal Right.

So, Smart Set: are you going to actually going to be smart one of these days or is it all going to be this InfoWars-level retarded shit from you from here on out?

The Smart Set spent all of 2003-2012 calling people unamerican for disagreeing with them on Iraq. To my discredit, I joined them in that.

But I've learned, since then. The Smart Set is too smart to ever learn anything from anything.

They only had one trick back then, and they only have one trick now.

And I agree with that baseballcrank dude - Trump should (and I'm not demanding it) resign and deflate the Dem's enthusiasm for the midterms.

127 This is an interesting comment from elsewhere ...

Please bear with me on this post. It's a little long but has some points.

I misread Strzok. I thought he was more a "Mikey" in this criminal conspiracy to undermine a presidential election. ( A HUGE scandal of epic proportions led by and coordinated by the Obama White and departments. My ex-police detective partner said this; "Obama got the DOJ/FBI he wanted. It took eight years but he got them." )

Peter Strzok is that arrogant sociopath you see in many places. He's the bad cop you see on video abusing people because he has a badge, then lying about what he did so he can continue to have that ability to abuse. When asked if he cares about the damage, he basically says "F 'em!"

Governments which offer unfettered power and abuse without consequences draw this personality to it. So yes, he was not alone inside this small group cabal. Another doppelganger for him is John Brennan. You have to understand they represent the almost religious political belief that only certain people can run the country for the masses of the unwashed. This theory of government dominates the world and has for millenniums. America's founders believed that educated people can run their own lives and govern themselves with a small government handling things like common defense, treaties etc. But the natural tendency is for a few to rule the many.

Strzok is also a type A personality. I have interviewed and gotten confessions from them, but they are difficult because they want to "run" the interrogation. Strzok BELIEVES he's the guy in charge. So what you see in the hearing him demanding the last word to explain how he is right and how everyone else are fools. This is not a game, this is a belief. He BELIEVED he was winning, just like HRC thought she won in the Benghazi hearings only to be remembered for the what difference does it make now line.

However, one congressman did it right. He asked Strzok to use his smarts to tell him exactly how a person with bias could affect a case without it being noticed. I was walking behind my couch at the time, paused and looked at Strzok on TV. I could see him think "I can tell them and they still can't get me, because I am that smart!" I know that look! I've used that technique. And sure enough, Strzok confessed to us all about how to do it without getting caught. I can't remember the exact quote (since I was in shock that someone was smart enough to ask it!) but it was basically; 1. Don't interview people. 2. Don't follow up on leads. 3. Don't find evidence. It's tough to prove you are throwing a case by doing a negative. It is usually just considered doing a bad job.

I am reading the OIG report. That is exactly what they did to avoid HRC being charged and what they did to create a reason to open an investigation on Trump.

Strzok is dangerous because he would do that and not care or have a sense of guilt about abusing his power. Strzok managed to rise to the top of the FBI, which means people in charge are dangerous. I and many of my police friends thought when Strzok was sidelined he was being cooperative in an IA investigation exposing the small group cabal. Now, after seeing him, I realize he was not "Mikey" but rather a man set on doing what he thought needed to be done so HE can rise to FBI director. He wasn't a follower, he was one of the leaders. They didn't set him aside so he would cooperate. They set him aside to keep him out of the way, and away from doing harm, until they could figure out what to do with him!

I think Strozk felt he won the day. However, within 24 hrs, the meme burning through the Internet is of him showing what is called the "duper's delight". The squirming, snarky look of pure evil that means he thinks he got away with it.

He didn't. Now he's the face of the criminal deep state. He has to go. How to get rid of him and not torch his ego to where he turns on everyone else in the cabal and take down entire agencies, is the problem the FBI/DOJ/NSA/CIA/State has to figure out. But he's gone, or no single citizen will ever trust their government again. If they want to flip him, they are going to have to charge him with a crime that will result in jail. His ego will not handle that. But do they want the truth? Probably not.

Interesting points. I hadn't seen that Congressman's question, but I have known a couple of genuine sociopaths. They have to let someone know what they've done and what they've gotten away with. Their ego demands it. It's probably their Achilles heel.

If they'd managed to bug Strzok's home and phones without him finding out about it, they probably could have caught him bragging.

But that would require the feds to actually want to catch and prosecute him.

Well ... here's where it gets interesting.

The Albanian-sponsored Kosovo Liberation Army wanted the city to join Albania, rather than being controlled by the Yugos. So - they started attacking police stations. Now, today, we would call that Terrorism. But that's not what it was called then.

The Yugos responded by rounding up KLA members and sympathizers and executing their asses ... as well as running Albanians out of the city in general. NATO said No-No ... everybody must negotiate.

That shit fell through, The Yugos said Fuck That ... so some, but not all, NATO members started bombing the Yugos.

Another shitty conflict we should have skipped ... but we didn't ... because we rarely do.

Everything else is a disaster. It was bad enough before Enver Hoxha what with the Ottoman occupation and the blood feuds enshrined into their law code, but Hoxha definitely made things worse. Sure, most people learned how to read (they didn't have an alphabet until 1913 I think it was), but they got stuck with everything else you get when a paranoid with aspirations for a Stalinist personality cult takes over.

Most of the country is Muslim. The rest is Catholic and Orthodox I think. Hoxha killed all the Catholic priests.

They've got a deeply corrupt culture. Not as bad as Gypsies not that that is saying much.

this was identified earlier today.

So if the illegal foreign payoff is under a million, and it involves Hillz, does that make it all good?

326 "245 So, Russia IS a geopolitical foe? The same Russians Romney warned about and Obama laughed at and claimed they were friends weren't really friends and used our complacency to infiltrate our political system and got trump elected. Now you're mad at the Russians?"

That's a solid question and sound rhetoric. The answer is "somewhat." It likely wouldn't make it into the top ten, though, and if we were serious about the GWOT it would have been brought into the fold September 12, 2001 (pro tip: no one among the ruling elite gives a flying fuck about the GWOT).

Our top geopolitical foes are a jumpball between China and Mexico. The latter, through facilitation of drugs, gangs and illegal aliens into the United States, kills tens of thousands of Americans every year and drains our resources. China obviously is our top military rival and has been running our ass out of the South China Sea for decades and has hollowed out our industrial base in the meantime. Of course, our political and coastal elites are bribed handsomely and/or enriched by both countries so nothing ever will be done about them. Not the legal definition of treason, but in spirit it will pass.


After Mexico and China, you can add to the list, with an exception here and there, every Muslim country in the Middle East. So that pushes Russia into the top twenty. Needless to say, the Gulf State also bribes our elite political classes.

331 209 Albania was the world's most isolated, closed off country for like half a century. They didn't have so much an evil dictator as a reallly paranoid one that walled off his country even from other communist nations.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor



Way back in '92, I spent a week on the Island of Corfu. It sits right off the coast of not only Greece but Albania. Somewhere between hangovers and ogling busty, half nekid, European girls, I did a cruise of some of the other Islands near by Corfu. When going past Albania, you could still see the barb wire, military installations, and walls to keep the westerners out of there Workers Paradise. In Albania's defense, I believe ole Hoxha was long gone and replaced by someone else (and probably was arrested or shot, no idea). Anyway, the Albanian coast line has the potential to be a real beautiful tourist trap. Similar to Montenegro which is an underrated beauty of a country. Alas, I don't know if Albania has taken advantage of there lovely geography. I have heard that Albanians are.....difficult.

The difference is that the US had the Constitutional framework, combined with an independent judiciary and the population's respect for it, that allowed us to grow out of that phase and into something more.

I would say that Russia has slipped back, roughly, to the system they had in place during the late 19th century - in the place of a corrupt nobility, which controlled all of the wealth in the nation, they now have a corrupt set of oligarchs who act much the same way. This type of system usually ends up being a cul-de-sac that nations get trapped in, until some violent external event shakes things up.

389 Scott Walker can't be a Russian spy. He's #NeverTrump! And we all know the Russians really, really wanted Trump to win. Even though that would totally go against their own interests, they just wanted it so badly for some unexplained reason.

Remember when Walker dropped out of the 2016 GOP primaries before they even started? He straight-up stated that he was dropping out specifically so his supporters could unite behind someone else and maybe keep Trump from becoming the GOP nominee.

Posted by: garrett


You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.

Howzat!

Eliminate the ability for lender protection of bad student loans in bankruptcy court, and the entire paradigm will be reversed in months. And about 10% of colleges will close within a year.

But the real estate industry will thrive because 31 year olds will not be saddled with debt from half a life ago and be able to afford a starter home.

Obama, Who's Totally Not a Socialist and It's Racist to Suggest He Is: Hey, Let's Give Everyone a Income from the State for Doing Nothing At All

Why so Socialist?

n his first major speech since leaving office, former President Barack Obama endorsed the idea of providing a universal basic income.

Speaking at the Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in South Africa on Tuesday, Obama raised the notion of guaranteed income as a way to reduce what he called "yawning disparities" in wealth, education, and security across different socioeconomic groups.

"It's not just money that a job provides," said Obama. "It provides dignity and structure and a sense of place and a sense of purpose. So we're going to have to consider new ways of thinking about these problems, like a universal income, review of our workweek, how we retrain our young people, how we make everybody an entrepreneur at some level. But we're going have to worry about economics if we want to get democracy back on track."

Um, a job provides dignity because the worker knows he's doing something productive, and it provides structure because employment usually requires a start time. Paying someone for nothing at all cannot provide dignity, as the recipient of the dole understands he's not doing anything productive, and cannot provide structure, except that twice a month, maybe, he feels he should probably go over to the check-cashing place to cash his welfare check.

Oh, and by the way: Soak the rich.

He additionally called on the rich to support higher taxation, saying that "you don't have to take a vow of poverty just to say 'let me help out a few of these folks.'

Obama's totally not socialist, though. Neither is the Democrat Party. Ignore the actual announced socialists running as "Democrat Socialists." Claims that there are Democrats running as Socialists are Racist Unfacts which Snopes has debunked.*

* As well as the Weekly Standard's Snopes-like FaceBook-friendly "fact-checker."

The cost to run all those agencies is enormous. So if the total amount of money doled out by all the welfare agencies is - just for simplicity sake - $100B a year to 10M people, it would be easier and more efficient to just send each of those people a check for $10K rather than all the time/effort involved to give them $10K worth of freebies.

99 Um, a job provides dignity because the worker knows he's doing something productive, and it provides structure because employment usually requires a start time. Paying someone for nothing at all cannot provide dignity, as the recipient of the dole understands he's not doing anything productive, and cannot provide structure, except that twice a month, maybe, he feels he should probably go over to the check-cashing place to cash his welfare check. - Ace



It's true. When people have no job and no purpose, they tend to become self-destructive to either themselves, or society. It is hard-wired into us at some level.

Welfare is a good insight into how well universal income will work. It is also another thing that hollows out the middle class and returns us to serfs and kings.

124 Husband and I were discussing this today. We know a woman that needs to pull together enough money to pay for a storage unit. It has items that were her father's stored away and means a lot to her. She gets $700 a month from some sort of state assistance. We have some work she could do. We paid her for what work she has done. The last two days, it's been too hot for her to do anything. I understand that, but I personally used to work outside in weather like this. I don't have a lot of sympathy. I'm sure she'd be more willing to work without that $700 coming in. It's not like we are paying minimum wage for what we expect. We're to the point where we are ready to tell her we don't need her help.

158 t's not just money that a job provides," said Obama. "It provides dignity and structure and a sense of place and a sense of purpose. So we're going to have to consider new ways of thinking about these problems, like a universal income, review of our workweek, how we retrain our young people, how we make everybody an entrepreneur at some level. But we're going have to worry about economics if we want to get democracy back on track."

Ok, I'm confused. This sounds like Obama is praising the value of work, while at the same time wanting everyone to have income without work.

As usual, Obama jibberish. I'm sure he said it with seventeen uhs, and ohs, and his nose in the air.

Barry ... and those of his ilk, which I've come to believe is MOST of the Ruling Class ... want something simpler.

They absolutely believe we should all work - for them. We should work on what they tell us to, when they tell us to, for what compensation they determine is fair.

A fucker like me - that's got a skill they want and is quite willing to sit on his ass before he works their hours for their idea of compensation - really pisses them off.

I'm sure - if Barry or those like him were ever truly in charge - we'd all be employed. Exactly where they told us to be.

We'd all be in our place.

That.

I admit to my shame to going apartheid-curious during my darker moments under Obama. But then I read up on the system. It was 'Capitalism For Brits, Socialism for Boers, Fascism for Blacks'. It polluted everybody involved in it.

We (Brits) really shouldn't have conquered the Boer and other nations in the first place. But since we did, we owned it, and we should have administered it better. We literally did a better job in India (which pooch we screwed, too).

I dunno. There are some good things about Empire and at least we weren't, um, Belgium. But a small island - actually, a small section of a small island - can't administer a fifth of a planet by itself. And mistakes are going to be made, and letting the Boers install a brutish apartheid system was a mistake.

(Rhodesia went better, but on that one I mainly blame you lot. At least the Carter-voters.)

Well up here in Maine it's a never ending line of people who demand that I help those folks out. Every year they come back and say that that I can totally afford to pay more in taxes every year. Two years ago it was a 3% tax surcharge on "the rich" making more than $250k a year. This year, its a 7% property tax hike for a school system who needs more and more money despite teach less kids per year. Now the state wants to raise my taxes another 2% to pay for some homeless program that is doomed for failure because its basically modeled after a city's program that they love, San Francisco....

So if you'll kindly get fucked Mr. Obama. You're at the end of a line of people who demand that I pay my fucking fair fucking share - and the line never gets smaller.

The Department of Elections in San Francisco on Monday issued voter registration for illegal aliens to allow them to vote for members of the city's Board of Education in the Nov. 6 election.

Becoming California's first city to allow non American citizens to vote in local elections, Supervisor Norman Yee said, "We want to give immigrants the right to vote."

In order to vote, the illegal aliens must live in the city, be at least 18 years old and be the "parents, legal guardians or caregivers of children under the age of 19 who also reside in San Francisco," ABC-7 reported.

433 On the other hand, if Social Security really was a "lockbox" with the gov't investing your money for you... we would be a literal communist country. The gov't would own everything.

Our main stock markets (nyse and nasdaq) are worth about 26 trillion. The gov't takes in over a trillion a year in payroll tax. They broke a trillion in 2014, and expect about 1.2 trillion this year.

Try to invest that amount for everyone's 40 year careers, and you run out of things to buy before the workers can retire and take money back out of the system.

Behind the dias (on which the more equal members of the ANC were ensconced), there was a large, maybe 30 feet wide yellow banner which included words similar to "Radical Socio-economic Transformation" as one of the ANC's near-term goals.

The reporter, fortunately or unfortunately, did not find the wording so interesting as to provide an explanation of the phrase.

Nunes Unchained: DOJ and FBI Have Bet All Of Their Chips on Democrats Winning the House, Which Will End Investigations Into Their Misbehavior; 90% of Reporters "Essentially an Arm of the Democrat Party"



Ben Smith immediately demanded that Devin Nunes be excluded from any future meetings with FaceBook.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), in a wide-ranging audio interview with his House colleague Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), accused top officials at the FBI and DOJ of "putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House" so that their Democratic allies can "shut down" the longstanding Intelligence Committee probe, which has unearthed information disputing claims of collusion in recent months.

Rep. Duffy interviewed Rep. Nunes for an upcoming episode of Duffy's podcast, "Plaidcast."

Nunes also lashed out at the U.S. media, accusing "90 percent" of reporters covering the Russia probe of being "essentially an arm of the Democratic party," according to an advance copy of the interview shared with the Washington Free Beacon.

Speaking of Ben Smith:

Buzzfeed is being sued for publishing the Steele Dossier (or is that the Blumenthal/Shearer dossier, rewritten by Steele to make it less obvious this was a Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory?) which claimed that a Russian businessman was involved in the Podesta/DNC hack. He's claiming that Buzzfeed, therefore, defamed him, by publishing allegations they didn't bother to confirm.

Well, the feds indicted 12 Russians for that hack -- and this Russian businessman wasn't mentioned at all.

A Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed News over the Steele dossier says he is vindicated by special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian nationals allegedly involved in cyber attacks against Democrats.

Aleksej Gubarev, the executive, says Mueller's indictment shows he was not involved in hacks of Democratic National Committee emails, as the dossier alleges.

He has filed defamation lawsuits against BuzzFeed News, the website’s editor, Ben Smith and dossier author Christopher Steele. BuzzFeed published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017. Steele, a former British spy, compiled the dossier as part of an anti-Trump research project funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign.

"This is a complete and utter vindication of our clients," Gubarev's attorney Val Gurvits said of the Mueller indictment.

Maybe Buzzfeed Ben should worry about his own trash-site's journalistic standards and worry less about the Daily Caller's.

Oh: Representative Ratcliffe says that Lisa Page admitted the texts she and Peter Strzok exchanged meant exactly what they seemed to mean, rather than resorting to Strzok's dishonest "By 'We'll stop it' I meant the American voter would stop it" bullshit:

18 From day one, this whole story has been pretty clear to me.

Media says no foreign leader would ever work with the US again if Trump is elected, they all hate him -- then they mistranslated Putin calling Trump "bright," Trump says "great guy, great guy" about Putin, Hillary's team began thinking of this false Putin / Trump story, Trump then jokes about Russia finding her 33,000 emails, then we're off to the races.

That's literally all this is. As someone who watched this all unfold, I'm not surprised at any of these developments.

I don't think the DNC was "hacked" by anyone or they would have showed the servers to the FBI and screamed about it from the rooftops. Who knows who phished Podesta... super unsophisticated, no reason to think it was a state actor.

Yeah, this has all been nonsense since day 1. And yet everyone is running with it. Aggravating.

Polls are saying yeah probably going to happen. And yes, I know, I know polls shmolls. But other than the 2016 presidential race, polls have been quite accurate in American elections. Polls said GOP would win the house in 2010, they did. Polls said GOP would win the Senate in 2014, they did. Polls said Dems would win the house in 2006, they did.

And right now polls are saying Dems will win the house. It's still 3+ months away and shit can change, but it's more likely than not that Nancy will be the next speaker.

That is - a MASSIVE abuse of the country's most sensitive and powerful authorities vested in the federal govt.


As many here have long noted - by far, the greatest scandal in American history (Clinton crime wave at State in 2nd place, IRS scandal in 3rd).


Nice how Nunes notes, as again many of us occasionally do, that if there were anything like a press, and these abuses had been against a Dem president or campaign, there would have been complete unending uproar, and demonstrations in the streets (properly so, his statement implies).

They know they will not be prosecuted for any voting crimes committed now, as evidenced by their skating on their coup.

As I explain on the last thread (to those claiming I am a troll or "concerned"), this is very, very, very, dangerous.

90 Mid-terms in the House typically result in out-of-power (i.e., opposite of White House party) pick-ups, for the last few decades. Last exception was 2002. Which has quite a few things that reasonably could be said to be parallels to this cycle - most importantly, a Dem party that is off the rails. This time, their extremism and idiocy is multiples of what it was in 2002.


Polls. Last generic I saw had the Dems at just barely the level where they pick up seats. And no guarantee that, even with some pick-ups, that they pick up enough to take the House.


If the Dems don't *lose* seats in this environment (assuming no big changes before Nov.), the case that the country is gone will be greatly strengthened.


And if the Dems take the House, of course as Nunes says the entire investigation of these mega-scandals will simply stop (apart from anything DOJ is actually doing). Would not be hyperbole of any sort to say that if that happens, the general legitimacy of the USG will have just about evaporated.

The fact they have been allowed to stonewall is what infuriates me. Here
you have the United States' law enforcement department essentially
going rogue and telling those with legal authority to pound sand.

Ditto. The day-to-day junk is fodder, this is the real issue as I see it, too.
What happens if they don't get a Blue House and the Repubs stay in charge? Can the Deep State and their Law Tools that they own continue to play the stonewall game another 2 years? Because they are all as crooked as a mountain back road.

And note to "Rank and File": IF you have been authorized to uphold the law, and you are aware your superiors are breaking the law, then you are REQUIRED TO ARREST THEM!!! Or you are just as GUILTY as they are!

I read something today (still looking for link now) that blew me away.

It is quite possible that the DNC did not want to turn over their servers because it was the DNC itself via Imran Awan and others (likely Fusion GPS among them) who were the "contractors" who were making Section 702 data queries -- the issue Mike Rogers reported to the FISA court and shut down.

Very shortly after that, Rogers went to see Trump at his HQ in NYC. That same night, Trump announced that his entire operation would be moved to his Jersey property.

This is shocking, if true.

137 Republicans Have Money Advantage in Most Key U.S. House Races ... - Bloomberg

Dems outraise GOP in most key House races - Daily Democrat

I never know what's what.

Cook says that the Republicans have to get 11 of 33 races that are tossups to hold the House. Seems doable to me.

And you are aware of the Senate's performance (on the intel side) so far in this affair, right? Grassley and Johnson have been doing good stuff, but the key intel-related areas have *only* been investigated because of Nunes on the House side.


Even with likely pick-ups in the Senate, I don't see that side carrying the torch anything like the HPSCI if the House changes.

173 Yeah it is very doubtful that the "intensity" index favors Dems this time. That's one reason I said it's more like 2002 than most mid-terms. And anyone who thought "O-care!!" was a *positive* for the Dems in 2010 was completely unconnected to any political reality in the country (it was never popular, before or after passage).


If the Keystone Coup plotters go unpunished, I'd say in some sense all bets are off in the country. Because a literally unbelievable abuse of power, directly aimed at affecting elections, will have been unpunished, despite being discovered. That's why I say, for the first time probably in our history, there will be a real legitimacy crisis for the federal political system, at least of this variety, which common globally.


And several who follow every detail are, like a commenter above, starting to wonder if some of the illicit 302 queries done by "contractors" were in fact done by the DNC itself. The sort of jaw-droppingly brazen and risky thing that would be ..... much more easily imaginable in a world where the Keystone Coup attemp goes unpunished.

I guess you missed the 30 or 40 Dem wins in various special elections over the past year? Alabama Senate seat ring a bell? PA-18? One or two you could say was some crazy fluke. But in red states, blue states, house, senate, state level, it's been an almost never ending stream of Dems winning elections in places where they never win. When a Democrat wins an Alabama senate race - even with a fucked up candidate like Moore - you can't sit there and say all is well, nothing to worry about.

If through some miracle nothing changes between now and Nov., I'd expect GOP holds the House and even picks up a few seats, and I'd put the Senate pick-ups at the Big 5 (WV MT MO IN ND) as a *floor*, with events favoring the GOP pushing that up to as many as 8 pick-ups.


But with this economy and several other consistent patterns, odds seem to favor catastrophe for the Dems much more than a reversal of fortune for the GOP (whose vote will, more than in a long time, be driven by presidential issues).

That's what the #Walkaway movement is. I've watched a few of the video testimonials and what struck me was the heartache by these people: they've realized that they have been manipulated and lied to by Democrat politicians AND the Democrat Party has turned into something very ugly.

Their grievances against the Democrats don't seem to have anything to do with THEIR preferred politician not calling the shots (unlike the PUMA bunch in 200 in the Democrat Party. I don't see those #Walkaway people voting for a party that they have very publicly disassociated from.

This whole "Party in power loses the House of Representatives in mid-term elections" is bull$h!t, too. Democrats held the House of Representatives from 1948 to 1994 and didn't lose the House despite the Johnson being seen as responsible for the Vietnam War and the economic $h!t-show that was the Carter years. We shall see what happens, but Democrat victory is far from inevitable. The constant screeching has caused people to tune them out: not a single person in the office said a word about President Trump's press conference with Vlad Putin.

214 I know I've said this before. But what has made U.S stable was the ability to vote in and out Presidents every four years. If you hated this Prez, you could get to the booth and try again, If you were losing your mind all you had to do was hold on 4 eight years and hopefully work to strengthen your own side.

Now they have chosen to Defraud elections pretty openly. first learned Bernie and we already suspected fraudulant votes, illegals etc, twice voters and so on. Than using govt agencies to produce fraudulent flows of information direrctly to media. to spike Trump. and they lost anyway. T G_d !
but here we are knowing that our elections -primaries are not dependant on voting , but many things such as FBI could help throw and election, and when they don't like results They can double down and try a coup. They have every tool at their disposal and are Trying them all!

intelligence agencies, media, propaganda , threats against those in their way or those trying to stop them.

anyway, back to my point.

How do we recover from this?

Obama 2010: GOP won 60, won house

Trump Walkback: When I Said I Had No Reason to Think the Hackers Would Have Been Working for Russia, I Meant I Had No Reason to Think the Hackers Would Not Have Been Working for Russia

Ed Morrissey does a good job of rounding up the negative reaction to Trump's Helsinki remarks, including from people who are generally fair to Trump.

Is Trump telling the truth now about his would vs. wouldn't speak-o? I don't know.

As many people have noted -- Byron York, for example -- Trump is loathe to admit the existence of Russian meddling because:

1, it taints an election victory that he's justly proud of, and

2, because he suspects -- not without reason-- that the whole Russia Narrative was cooked up by Hillary Clinton and Hillary partisans in the leftwing media and then seized upon by the deranged NeverTrump liberal Republican wing. He sees admitting Russian meddling as a half-step towards confirming the alleged Russian collusion the media and Democrats and NeverTrumpers are foaming about, and tends to claim both premises are false, instead of conceding that one is true while remaining firm that the other is false.

Mollie Hemingway put it well on Special Report last night: While Trump should be smarter about separating out the "Russian meddling" story from the "Russian collusion" allegation, so should Trump's critics, who routinely, and sometimes probably deliberately, conflate the two, acting as if proof of the former is also proof of the latter.

An editor at The Atlantic, for example, just tweeted out last week that the indictment against 12 Russian nationals for hacking Jon Podesta's email account is, by some alchemy he doesn't explain, also proof of Russian collusion.



Here's a "staff writer" at The Atlantic doing precisely that --



The cucks' favorite bull also seems fond of conflating Russian meddling with Russian collusion, pretending that Trump calling one a "witch hunt" must naturally mean the other is a "witch hunt" too:



Here's an Atlantic editor doing precisely what Hemingway is talking about -- taking an indictment of a Russian national who attempted to influence the NRA as evidence that the NRA is a Russian front group:



The NRA is not also indicted, and in fact, the indictment contains nothing to besmirch the NRA at all. This is just The Atlantic doing the selfsame wishcasting and cultish conspiracy theorizing they accuse their opponents of doing.

A media which is ever-vigilant for Trump's false assumptions and conspiracy theories seems too overworked by those exertions to spend a single second patrolling their own cultish beliefs for any mental errors of their own.

27 Speaking for myself, and not for Trump...

First we surrendered China and North Korea to Russia.

Then we surrendered Cuba to Russia. Then we rounded up a decent subset of the anti-Castro resistance and set them up to be massacred at the Bay of Pigs.

Then we surrendered a huge chunk of SE Asia to the Russians and Chinese (who by now had started their own mob family). Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

We inexplicably got Eastern Europe back, but Clinton made sure they had no nuclear weapons. And made sure North Korea would eventually get them.

Then Bush came along. He helped fail-to-contest the Russian/Chinese subversion, conquest-by-local-proxy (it's what they do), and impoverishment of Venezuela.

Finally Obama came along, chose the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising to announce the cancellation of missile defense for Poland, then gave the Syrian resistance to Assad the same treatment we earlier gave the rebels against Castro. Then he gave some hundred-and-fifty-billion-dollars to Iran, much of which went to.... Russia, which suddenly has the money to do a decent bombing campaign in Syria, driving the refugees to Western Europe so they can subvert it.

Oh, and on top of everything else: the last three Presidents before this one surrendered our industrial base to Russian-inspired communist totalitarians who own China.

Now everyone who was in on that long series of sales of whole and partially-burnt human flesh to Russians and Chinese are wanting to make some accusations about collusion.

That said, no one is perfect, and that applies to DJT, so if people who are usually in his corner are giving some constructive criticism, he should listen.

CIA couldn't really have been so stupid as to think the plan as executed was going to depose Castro, right?

So did they have a different goal? If so, what?

Did the execution differ significantly from the plan? If so, how?


The plan as conceived had air support, which was withdrawn at the last minute by President Kennedy in an act of utter fecklessness. The force was shot to pieces by Castro, with the aid of Russian-supplied trainer aircraft, in full view of an American carrier force that was just offshore.

One guy in a WW2 era bomber disobeyed orders and took off and flew an air support mission anyway and was shot down. He got traded for someone else a couple days later. The rest of Cuba never got traded for anyone, although some managed to emigrate later.

97 >>it taints an election victory that he's justly proud of

I think this is partially correct (and obvious) but I think the whole answer is more complicated.

Trump is a businessman and only secondarily a politician. He is trying to accomplish a pretty bold foreign policy agenda and he is going about it in a way that flies in the face of the foreign policy of both Democrats and Republicans for decades. He's doing it from the perspective of a businessman.

Take a look at what he is doing in North Korea. He is not only engaging Kim directly, something that has been anathema to our foreign policy "experts" on both sides of the aisle forever but he has been complimenting Kim and giving him a positive path forward whenever he takes a step in the right direction. Remember the video he had produced showing Kim what NK could be if he played nice?

And all of that is being made possible by Trump's aggressive sanctions policy against China. North Korea is nothing without China and Trump has been playing them in the background also with a dose of carrots and sticks, most notably the sanctions which threaten China's stability in the long run.

Same with Putin. You want to solve Syria you go through Moscow. Same with Iran. Same with a host of smaller skirmishes around the globe. And you solve Russia not by threatening war with them but showing them an alternative future that they could have if they stop being a destabilizing force around the world. And the one thing you don't do with someone you are trying to do a deal with is publicly humiliate them.

No doubt Trump is sick and tired of having his legitimacy questioned. But he is also trying to solve things in a way that DC does not understand because it is full of politicians most of whom have never done dick in the business world and almost none in the international business world. Trump understands what makes geopolitical foes like China and Russia tick and it isn't press conferences or political statements.

It's the economy stupid.

108 The stupidest thing about all this is that say what you will about Trump that he's impulsive that he's a wild man whatever

He comes across that way, to be sure, but it's astonishing how often he ends up outmaneuvering his opponents. (My favorite was his getting the Dems to defend MS-13. That was priceless.)

You have to wonder how much of that impulsive wild man loose cannon persona is real and how much is his shtick. Is he wild in the streets and just has had an amazing run of luck, or is he doing a rope-a-dope, or as I suspect, some of each, but with more of the latter than of the former.

176 People need to start talking about the Russia linked firm Fusion GPS that was hired by the Clinton and DNC for nefarious purposes. The Russian lawyer that the left made a big deal over at Trump Tower works for Fusion GPS.

Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele/Haklyut (a British citizen/firm who by law cannot receive campaign money, but did via the cut-out law firm Perkins Coie) to find dirt on Trump. Steele then took the illegal campaign money and paid Russian intelligence agents for Trump/Trump campaign dirt. This is also illegal.

The FBI/CIA/DoJ then received this dirt via artiface on the part of Fusion GPS and proceeded to ignore the obvious crimes committed by the lot of the Dems involved and decided this was worthy of a counter-intel investigation against the VICTIM of the multitude of criminal activity by the left.

186 The whole collusion thing has run it's course.
In the beginning, as each little nugget of "info" came out, it was reported breathlessly by the media. Flynn's phone call - routine in nature - was "ah ha, see !!!" and then Jared's hotel meeting with the Russian chic "ah ha, see !!!" and so on. They The MSM/Dems (BIRM), made the most critical error of salesmanship you can make: They over promised and under delivered.

Once you cross that rubicon, you cannot get back customer support. At this point, Mueller only has one card to play for his audience: That is subpoena the president. It's a perjury trap. But if Trump says no, "ah ha, see !!"


A report just before the mid-terms, with all kinds of dots, yes, lots of dots but no connecting will be breathlessly reported by the media. But in the end, it will be seen as what it is: A last gasp - that will not effect the election of any one rep or senator.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44868069

"A TV adaptation of Batwoman is to become the first live-action superhero series with an openly gay lead character.

The show is being developed for the US channel, the CW, adding to the network's collection of shows based on DC comics characters."

The article then continues with this zinger:

"Batwoman was introduced in the 1950s as a love interest for Batman to dispel rumours of his own homosexuality."

Whaaaaat? Are they repeating some Gender Studies master's thesis ridiculosity as historical fact now?

Was there really a national debate in the 1950s as to whether of not Batman was homosexual? First I've heard of it.

The Deep State is doing their best to destroy Trump by any means. but he has us covering his 6.

With the internet, talk radio, and alternate news sources, they can only censor their LIV's but cannot hide real information from the rest of us. Then we feed it back into their echo chambers and they melt or change the topic.

I'm actually more optimistic for November than I was even a few months ago. Mainly the Left continues to be stupid and melt down, and cannot come up with a story that sticks against Trump for more than 3 days.

Not getting cocky, however, there is work to be done this fall.

216 Trump's instincts have been uncanny, so his walk back probably was the right thing to do (some of his more Establishment IC, Coats looms large, likely threatened to resign). Still, a quibble with the York/Hemmingway line of analysis. Having Trump publicly buy into the Russian meddling narrative has two purposes. The first, obviously, is/was to make it look like he conspired with the Russians as grounds to remove him. The second, let's call it the "insurance policy," was to explain away the FBI/DOJ's Stasi-like mucking around in our supposedly democratic election.

You know, "even President Trump understands why we . It was due to the Russian interference in the elections, which he has acknowledged."


Mueller's indictments of the dozen Russians immediately before the summit, and his indictment of the NRA supporter afterwards, also was two-fold. The first prong was an attempted foreign policy coup, which apparently failed, and the second was to bolster the meddling narrative. I've assumed Mueller will continue his witch hunt until after the midterms to give a possible impeachment report, and still do so, but he's also laying the groundwork to justify the police state antics.

No sale, motherfucker. We don't know how it will end but we'll never trust you and your stormtroopers again. Ever.

Trump didn't do what he did today lightly, and expect harsh repercussions from him when he gets the opportunity. This will end, one way or another.

The left is allowed to get away with making the conflation -- as if it's a known fact that Russia interference changed the outcome in key states by altering electronic voting results or even paper ballots. It's insane. Trump's communication team sucks. If it weren't for his twitters, how different would this be than under Bush?

I'm not so sure. I suspect that the Reds knew that there was nothing there, but they hoped they could goad Trump into firing Mewler so they could make a BFD out of that. They've probably got the signs printed and op-eds already written, just waiting for that to happen.

Meanwhile, Trump has not risen to the bait, and increasingly Mewler is starting to look like that head of lettuce that got stuck in the back of the refrigerator for six months.

If this continues, eventually Mewler will have to pull his own rip cord, which will destroy the entire operation.

279 What will the NeverTrumpers say when they find out their beloved deep state hates the second amendment and wants to confiscate guns?

Just like the Supreme Court, they don't seem to care. I know they give the Jonah Goldberg boiler plate response, blah, blah. But what really gets them angry, excited, is:

1. When people attack globalism and get too nationalistic.
2. When people want restrictions on immigration.
3. When people support tariffs, especially on the EU and China.
5. When people don't attack Russia with enough gusto.
6. When people want to raise taxes.

No. 6 is the only one the Republican base and the NeverTrump elite get angry about. Outside of that do they have anything in common?

Hence the problem: They don't understand the base of their own political party, or worse do and use the base for their own desires. Trump ended that, and that has made them angry. They don't understand that Trump could put a tinfoil hat on his head and he would still be supported by the base as long as he supports the things they want. It is not a cult of personality, but real political reasons.

For example: Fox news keeps bringing up Syria. How many voters, not just in the GOP, really care about Syria? I mean they may not want Russia and Iran there (more the later probably bugs them), but compared to immigration, leftist violence, lawlessness, fear of losing constitutional rights, higher paying jobs, not getting screwed in trade with China / EU, etc. probably is more important. With that mind Syria is low on the "I am angry list". Yet NeverTrumpers act like Syria is the freaking Fulda Gap!

Then Trump killed me by not firing Rosenstein and Mueller, and even then I did nothing.

Trump also killed me by picking Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, and even in the face of this affront, I did nothing.

The final straw, when Trump mercilessly mocked Hillary and the DemonRats and the FBI's failure to bother to confirm the "Russia Hack", also killed me dead, but I failed to rouse from my stupor.

Is it any different in its deviousness from what foreign intelligence services plant in our media?

he doesn't suspect this .. he KNOWS this, unless he really did collude (not a crime) with the Russians ... to buy a meaningless FB ad.

Rosenstein called a press conference to trample on Trump's visit with the Queen ... Rosie is doing anti-Trump agitprop. Then the indictments of Russians, which could have been done ... months ago. All timed to attack the president doing his job ... active sedition by Rosie/Mueller.

So a little push back by Trump ... playing the headline, with a meaningless "I misspoke" later. It called attention to the real issue, not Trump avoiding war with Russia, but our IC (Rosie/Mueller/Brennan/etc) are almost calling for an open coup and/or war with Russia ... THAT is the real treason, the real coup.

And since Trump made them come out and rise up against POTUS, even media is calling for War and a Coup. No sneaky FISC court lies to frame anyone, they are openly revealing their own sedition. DeepState demands to run foreign policy, and serve the globalists ... everyone is noticing. NSA has all the evidence.

There is a law that if you do work on behalf of a foreign government inside the US, you are supposed to fill out a registration as a foreign agent. The last 1,000 people who have run afoul of this law (basically every lobbyist in DC) have all been quietly told "hey, you need to fill out that registration card, you know?" and that was all.

In any case, the bigger thing is it stepped all over Trump's moments, trashed him from inside our (crooked) government, and the MSM ran with it to flood the zone with the DeepState agitprop.

obstruction if Trump said anything ... weak. They are actively opposing Trump with agitprop ... daring him to stop them to get obstruction? maybe. But they are actively interfering with his job as commander in chief ... THAT is real crime, not fabricated bs.

He's shown once again how batshit crazy the left is and with a little political jiujitsu he can turn a misstep into a net gain just on the propaganda front.

Maybe a smarter answer would've been something like, "Well, you know, lots of countries try to meddle with our elections. I'm not interested in pointing fingers, here. At any rate, I'm sure the real impact is minimal, and the important thing is that we work to keep it that way, as I trust the Obama administration did."

Buzzfeed Ben: Facebook and Other Media Companies Are Too Deferential to Conservative Media; Prefers (Get This!) The Weekly Standard to the Daily Caller

You've gotta be fucking kidding me.

At a private meeting late last week, some publishing executives criticized Facebook Inc. for being overly accommodating to conservative outlets, days before social-media executives are to appear on Capitol Hill to discuss how content is displayed on their sites.

...

At the off-the-record meeting between Facebook officials and publishing executives in New York on Thursday, BuzzFeed Editor in Chief Ben Smith said that, by his count, there were about six conservative-leaning publications among the dozen or so outlets represented at the gathering. He said the ratio implied a fundamental misconception among Facebook employees about the workings of the news industry, according to people familiar with his remarks.

Mr. Smith said that the number of conservative publications in attendance indicated that Facebook had bought into the idea, promoted primarily by conservatives, that mainstream outlets such as the New York Times are liberal and should be counterbalanced by right-leaning opinion outlets, said people familiar with his remarks.

Mr. Smith objected in particular to the presence of the Daily Caller, a conservative-leaning outlet whose journalistic standards he called into question. He said other conservative outlets present, such as the Weekly Standard, held higher standards.

Yes, the Weekly Standard, which has joined the left in fact-checking conservative sites (some incredibly small and almost entirely unknown) while largely ignoring claims made by liberal sites.

Buzzfeed Ben had a second for that motion:


Mr. Smith's assessment of the Daily Caller's journalistic standards was echoed by Lydia Polgreen, the editor in chief of HuffPost.

So Buzzfeed Ben is pissed off that conservative sites even get to attend meetings with FaceBook, and feels that his Listicle Emporium isn't adequately catered to.

By the way, the Huffington Post editor also expressed anger at the Daily Caller for daring to report that one of its "contributors" has a history of making "jokes" about the Holocaust and praising Louis Farrakhan.

The Wall Street Journal -- whose reporters, remember, are almost invariably left-liberals (as contrasted with its conservative-leaning editorial page) -- chooses to obscure what those tweets were and refuses to link to the Daily Caller article in question so that people can decide for themselves.

More: Apparently Listicle Ben has a bee in his bonnet about the Daily Caller, and also claims that the Holocaust jokes are just fine because Leftist:



Someone pointed this out to me -- Listicle Ben has a lot of balls accusing anyone else of "stealth corporate propaganda," given his cat-gif emporium's constant McDonald's boosterism.

Morpheus: I've seen an editor punch through six martinis in one lunch; men have emptied entire encyclopedias of facts at them and hit nothing but air; yet, their strength, and their speed, are still based in a world that is built on their rules. Because of that, they will never be as strong, or as fast, as Trump can be.

Facebook keeps me in touch with people I'd have lost touch with. Sometimes that's interesting, hey Lyle got into flyfishing too. It gives me some connection with a dozen or so ex-girlfriends who will probably never come around again but it never hurts to keep in touch.

It's some fishing buddies who still fish and a couple who've branched off into wildlife photography.

He said the ratio implied a fundamental misconception among Facebook employees about the workings of the news industry, according to people familiar with his remarks.


Well, he's not wrong. The news industry is not half conservative, half leftist. It's overwhelmingly leftist. So the ratio doesn't represent the news industry as a whole.
