David French: Backwards Beliefs and Islamic Propaganda Didn't Radicalize Ilhan Omar.
You Did.





A friend suggested that French meant that American-born Islamists radicalized her.

Well, maybe he meant that, but he avoided using that word, didn't he? Because he was Virtue Signaling for Liberal Approval and didn't want to taint it by spreading a Racist Meme like "Islamists spread the doctrine of Islamism."

Does David French think that Ilhan Omar was spotless of anti-semitism until Mean Americans taught her to hate Jews?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who, like Omar, grew up in Somalia, says that's unlikely. She says that she was anti-semitic herself due to the dominant backwards culture of Somalia and had to deprogram herself.

But I guess we need more Real Americans like Ilhan Omar, and I guess we should take David French's word for it that the American immigration system screens out all Islamists.

That's the single stupidest thing he's ever written, by the way.

Here is some of Ayaan Hirsi Ali's recent article from the Wall Street Journal.


I once opened a speech by confessing to a crowd of Jews that I used to hate them. It was 2006 and I was a young native of Somalia who'd been elected to the Dutch Parliament. The American Jewish Committee was giving me its Moral Courage Award. I felt honored and humbled, but a little dishonest if I didn't own up to my anti-Semitic past. So I told them how I'd learned to blame the Jews for everything.

Fast-forward to 2019. A freshman congresswoman from Minnesota has been infuriating the Jewish community and discomfiting the Democratic leadership with her expressions of anti-Semitism. Like me, Ilhan Omar was born in Somalia and exposed at an early age to Muslim anti-Semitism.

Some of the members of my 2006 AJC audience have asked me to explain and respond to Ms. Omar’s comments, including her equivocal apologies. Their main question is whether it is possible for Ms. Omar to unlearn her evident hatred of Jews--and if so, how to help.

In my experience it is difficult, perhaps impossible, to unlearn hate without coming to terms with how you learned to hate. Most Americans are familiar with the classic Western flavors of anti-Semitism: the Christian, European, white-supremacist and Communist types. But little attention has been paid to the special case of Muslim anti-Semitism. That is a pity because today it is anti-Semitism's most zealous, most potent and most underestimated form.

I never heard the term “anti-Semitism” until I moved to the Netherlands in my 20s. But I had firsthand familiarity with its Muslim variety. As a child in Somalia, I was a passive consumer of anti-Semitism. Things would break, conflicts would arise, shortages would occur--and adults would blame it all on the Jews.

When I was a little girl, my mom often lost her temper with my brother, with the grocer or with a neighbor. She would scream or curse under her breath "Yahud!" followed by a description of the hostility, ignominy or despicable behavior of the subject of her wrath. It wasn’t just my mother; grown-ups around me exclaimed "Yahud!" the way Americans use the F-word. I was made to understand that Jews--Yahud--were all bad.

...

We were taught that the Jews betrayed our prophet Muhammad. Through Quranic verses (such as 7:166, 2:65 and 5:60), we learned that Allah had eternally condemned them, that they were not human but descendants of pigs and monkeys, that we should aspire to kill them wherever we found them...

We were taught that the Jews occupied the Holy Land of Palestine. We were shown pictures of mutilated bodies, dead children, wailing widows and weeping orphans....

The theological and the political stories were woven together, as in the Hamas charter: "The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: 'The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The Stones and trees will say, "O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill me."' . . . There is no solution for the Palestine question except through Jihad."

Is the delicate cuck David French quite certain that immigrants such as Ilhan Omar come to the US devoid of any antisemitism or Islamism, only to be taught it by Americans?

Or is this an entirely sham claim he's knowingly lying about just to win a Twitter Argument in which he was exposed as a fool?

19 There's a certain point to be made here. Our American universities and popular culture have generated far too many home-grown radicals. The following is a comment I wrote on an article on Slate:

"Ilhan Omar does not like the United States, does not like our system of government and economic system, does not like Jews or Israel, and, to put it bluntly, doesn't like white people in general. Of course, this latter opinion has now been carefully split off from the concept "racist."

Ilhan is certainly not a grateful refugee, but ironically, her refugee status isn't even relevant. Omar came to America as a small child. Her environment and upbringing after that, including an academic soaking resulting in a degree in Political Science and International Studies, is likely much more responsible for her views than her original country. And frankly, I find that more disturbing than anything else.

It might also be instructive to look at her father's politics, steeped in the Marxist Somali Democratic Republic.

In short, Omar's political ideas are, basically, home-grown.

When you look around, you see a hell of lot more enthusiastic Leftists and outright socialists that were born in the United States than among the population of grateful refugees. There's our real problem."

88 Omar, the sister-wife piece of shit was "radicalized" ... LOL. What a joke.

What needs to be investigated was how she was even allowed to come here and, worse, how she was allowed to become a citizen.

Roger Calero is a nicaraguan who got a green card and decided that he was going to run for President. He did and got on a handful of state ballots - TWICE. That is as un-Constitutional as it gets. It doesn't get more cut and dried. But, somehow, even after this happened and it was known (hard to keep running for the Presidency a secret) Calero still managed to be naturalized. How the fuck does shit like that happen? How in hell?

ANd we have to hear these America-hating dems yelp about how much better third-world turds are at being American than Americans. That is beyond a joke. And most of those "American" islamists aren't actual Americans. Sure, they might have been born here, but it was the mistake of letting their America-hating parents naturalize that led to this problem.

America enjoyed the distinct advantage through most of our history of having pretty much ZERO muzzies. People vastly underestimate how much of an advantage this was. ANd since the 90s, we've been importing muzzies like they were going out of style ... as if they didn't have 57 different islamic shitholes to go to, instead. And the AMerica-hating dems put the cherry on top by electing a hussein less than a decade after 9/11. Yep ...

107 It's my opinion that immigrants never really integrate or assimilate and always hold onto prejudices from the old country. Possibly the exception being those of British and German descent strictly. Even Irish descendants here over 5 generations still voice disdain for the English despite it being a complete non issue for them.

People say a lot of things. There's a certain amount of Archie Bunkerism baked into a multi-ethnic country like ours. "Voicing disdain" doesn't capture the extent of Omar's vitriol for the Jews.

132 Ilhan is certainly not a grateful refugee, but ironically, her refugee status isn't even relevant. Omar came to America as a small child. Her environment and upbringing after that, including an academic soaking resulting in a degree in Political Science and International Studies, is likely much more responsible for her views than her original country. And frankly, I find that more disturbing than anything else.

I think that that's right.

We have a local politician here from the sub-continent (either directly or indirectly, IDK) who recently was whining about her travails as a "woman of color." So she has assimilated, in a sense; she now bleats American leftist shit.

136 The anti-Semitism is probably grown firmly in her own culture, but she would never have had it challenged when she went to school or went to college. The anti-American sentiments could be either. Not knowing her parent's attitudes toward the country they fled to with their family, it could be either.

But schools *insist* that students love their source country and culture the most. It's the whole point of multi-culturalism. And once she got to college she'd be soaking in anti-Israel sentiment and she'd have been surrounded by people who affirmed her every time she expressed hatred for America while brown.

So in *some sense* it's not entirely wrong to place some of her acculturation at the feet of America and Jew hating American liberals. If nothing else, she'd certainly never have heard different than that.

The only thing I know about him is that he's some guy that Ace hates. That's enough evidence for me.

The people Ace keeps bashing (Stelter, French, etc.) are all, for the most part, less famous and influential than Ace himself, in raw numbers. Sure, they deserve the bashing based on their malevolence and idiocy, but at this point in political history we're probably doing them a favor by hating on them so much. Without hate-viewers, they'd probably have no viewers at all.

Because she wasn't a refugee. She was part of the losing side of a vicious gang war in SOmalia, which is business as usual over there.

Omar came to America as a small child. Her environment and upbringing after that, including an academic soaking resulting in a degree in Political Science and International Studies, is likely much more responsible for her views than her original country.

Bullshit. Her family raised her. She was 10 when she slimed into the US. She had already passed her really formative years (just like Barky who spent all of his truly formative years growing up a muslim in Jakarta). It has everything to do with her original country and her culture.

270 What French is arguing is so repellent that it can be kind of hard to put into words why he's wrong. I've tried to come up with some examples that demonstrate just how abhorrent he is.

Imagine a parent saying "I wish that kid down the block was my son instead of the loser I've got."

Imagine arguing that families with adopted children are BETTER than ones with biological children because "adopted children were chosen, not the result of somebody forgetting their birth control."

Or imagine taking your old pet down to the pound just because you got a new one and don't want to be bothered with two.

There is something genuinely inhuman about what French is doing, which he'll probably only realize when some future Ilhan Omar is passing judgment on French and his children.

If they are allowed back in at all, it must be as self-flagellating supplicants. They must acknowledge that they went wrong, where they went wrong, and why - and then make a public apology.

This will, of course, undermine their credibility as elite prognosticators of all things political, and wreck their CNN/MSNBC careers...

But if they're willing to come off their high horses and humble themselves before the voters and beg for forgiveness, then I am willing to extend a very delicate, conditional, small olive branch.

I am this generous because I have little expectation that anyone will take it up. These people would rather command a sinking ship than man the guns and sink the other guy first.

I guess its at least plausible he has sexual appetites of some kind.

Trump doesn't exercise.

In fact, he went on an absolutely hilarious riff about it that I can't find on the internet right now.

Essentially he said "I remember all these people who were jogging all over the place when I was younger. Now look at them! They can't walk, they have bad knees, bad hips, bad ankles. You only have so much energy in life, you don't want to waste it doing stupid stuff like running around for no reason."

If they are allowed back in at all, it must be as self-flagellating supplicants. They must acknowledge that they went wrong, where they went wrong, and why - and then make a public apology.

This will, of course, undermine their credibility as elite prognosticators of all things political, and wreck their CNN/MSNBC careers...

But if they're willing to come off their high horses and humble themselves before the voters and beg for forgiveness, then I am willing to extend a very delicate, conditional, small olive branch.

I am this generous because I have little expectation that anyone will take it up. These people would rather command a sinking ship than man the guns and sink the other guy first.

This reminded me of a funny story.

In Indonesian, belut is eel.

Their word for tampon is also very, very close to that in pronunciation. So close that westerners have a hard time making the correct pronunciation. Or at least that was the case for my wife.

She went to the market to by eels for a kid's birthday game--the eels don't bite, so they have a sort of crazy relay race that's popular there.

My wife went from vendor to vendor asking for tampons, not eels. This was extremely entertaining to the men working in the market, so each one of them would send her to the next vendor just to keep the joke going.

She knew what was up but had to play along until they were finally done with their game and someone sold her eels.

There is some truth in this.

There's this common perception on the right that schools don't teach history anymore.

And that's not exactly true -- they definitely do teach history. Just not the same history most of the older generation learned when they were growing up.

Folks like French, who have never done a damn thing in their life, but talk, do NOT get to lecture me on being an American.

I spent my young adult years defending this Nation. While others were at home with families, I was overseas.

Hell, my Twins were born when I was on a ship in Desert Storm.

French says that being a BORN American is not a special thing, that anyone can be it.

But the reason it IS special, is because some of us paid the price to make it easy FOR people like him.

And with his attitude his spits on our sacrifice.

I'm in my early 30's, I don't remember anything about the USSR or communism being covered in school. Like I vaguely remember jokes about kids hiding under desks because Joe McCarthy was paranoid about Russians or something, but as far as actually talking about what happened in the Soviet Union? Nah.

Kind of same deal with WWII. The big takeaway was that Hitler killed a bunch of Jews because he was a right wing nut job. (Not too different from Right Wing Nutjob George W Bush, cough cough. -- and yeah, I was raised during the Bush years.)

437 I have told this story before, but it is relevant. Back before 9/11, and during the adventures in Somalia, my little town got a handful of Somali refugees, who went to work at the pork packing plant. Yes, you heard that right. They didn't last long there, can't imagine why. There were no women among them AFAIK.

I happened to encounter one of them in the hotel bar, and made some throwaway comment to him like, "You must consider yourself fortunate to be here in Canada, and not back in Somalia, enduring all the strife." He leaned over, lowered his voice, and said, "really, it's all the fault of the Jews."

So I can tell you straight up, that the inherent anti-Semitism of Somalis is a fact.

The Hatch peppers in the south are used in a lot of good stuff. I think it's mainly Santa Fe and areas north that have really crappy mescan food, since that area's been overrun by californicators.

the best juevos rancheros I ever had were in a little greasy spoon roadside diner in Carrizozo, N.M.

How bad at history do you have to be to be shocked, shocked that there was slavery in the US at its founding. And I know we did have a chance to go a different direction, so I think we can fault the founders for choosing to set up that system. They chose it.

If you're a fan of that genre, you need to check out "ThingsI learned from my patients," which has physicians' stories from the ER. It's hysterical.

My two favorites: the guy who stole a prescription pad and wrote himself a prescription for a pound of "mofine." (Sound it out.)

Or the family who brought their daughter in to the ER, where she gave birth.

Tater Totter: CNN's In-House Flack Brian Cryface Stelter Has Lost Forty-Two Percent of Xis Audience This Year

If ratings were bodyfat, and Tater lost 40% of his bodyfat, he'd still be really fat.

But ratings aren't Tater's bodyfat. This is a big drop. And this Egg With Legs didn't start with high ratings.

Yeah. And like my gym has cnn on on a tv near the cardio equipment. Not that anyone watches it.

But I think thats a large portion of cnns audience random public places that want the news on but dont want to be seen as picking a side so they play it safe and play the channel thatll just offend everyone.

There's still a lot of reach in old media. Not everyone gets news/info exclusively from the internet or social media. I'd say the majority don't. Radio and TV are still a thing. CNN's airport niche though...not so much.

No student loans are restrictive.

The government gives the school whatever you request to take out the school refunds you whatever the difference is.

I used student loans to pay for everything including rent food and beer.

I also knew I had to pay the money back so I was mindful of how much I spent.

Frankly if we have to have federal student loans the only way I see it even being somewhat workable is if colleges have some financial teeth in the game.

Because as it is they dont have any downward pressure on tuition nor do they have any incentive to ensure kids make wise financial and education choices while at college.

That comes to $194,252, but does not include room, board, transportation, insurance, and that's just counting pharmacy school. I would bet the person probably has loans for undergrad as well that are included in that $300,000 figure.

Well herein lies the problem. Banks only made student loans because they were backed by government (and have been for decades.)

To get a non backed loan you needed a co signer. Which means kids who have poor parents and/or parents with shitty credit could not get loans.

The real root of all of this is frankly how stupidly expensive college is.

397 I don't blame current college age students for being pissed - the system we've allowed to develop is a huge ripoff. Sadly, the best answer for most of them (which almost no one will tell them) is that College today is a colossal waste of time and money, and you would be far better off giving up that fantasy of a "professional" job and instead learning something honest like plumbing, wiring, or car repair.

These 18 and 19 year-olds are making foolish decision, BUT they've got the entire education establishment whispering in their ears saying "oh come on you can borrow the money! You'll earn enough to pay it back, you have our word on that! DOOO EEEEETTTT!!"

and very very few at that age are mature enough to realize that the establishment is casually using them to enrich itself.

Maybe averaging $100 if you can get away with buying used.

My Con Law book was almost $300. I'd say the average price of my law school books was in the mid-$200's for the ones I had to buy new.

About the same in my masters program.

Undergrad was a decade ago, but even back then, I think the books averaged between $150-$200 new.

It's RIDICULOUS.

407 I graduated debt free. It was no picnic.


I was a drafter and designer 20-25 hours a week during college. and 50-60 during any vaco time. I was good and fast and made decent money, particularly for an 18-22 year old kid. I never took any real time off much less a vacation. I studied hard and got out in 4 years not the standard 5 years to get out with a BSME. I ate lots of Raman and had an understanding girlfriend that didn't demand we go out much.

I had several offers and took the one at the company I had been drafting and designing with. No off time from graduating.

Best advice I got when out of college is a guy said live like you are still in college. I didn't quite do that but was not anywhere living up to my income. Bought my first house within 3 years of graduating on my own.

Turns out sacrifice, hard work, and long hours go pretty far. Something I do not see in the kids of today.

Generally the pick is from governors. This has been busted up a bit of late but I predict a return to the norm.

If you take a look at the Republican governors on display at rga.org there are onyl a few that will pass the "reasonably telegenic enough to be on national TV" test. Sorry, its a factor.

Ron DeSantis is also the only one with marginally national name recognition (the MFM shot themselves in the foot making his impending doom a news story).

He's Trumpy and he's a fighter and he's the governor of a must win state.

I have been an auto mechanic for 44 years. With the exception of some specialized dealer only tools I've had to supply my own tools, plus storage.
And at the end of every day, walk away from them, leaving my livelihood under vestigial security.

My insurance agent recommended they be covered under homeowner's in a detached location (the shop I worked in) and would require a current inventory of every single item.

At the time of retirement, the replacement value of those tools at current prices was just north of 96k.
And I walked away from that investment each day.

I'm not sure that makes any net difference, though. If Walgreen's gives a grant to a pharmacy student, that money comes out of the money paid by consumers for their prescriptions. Walgreen's isn't a charity, yes?

The fundamental problem, as several people have noted, is (mainly, though not excusively, due to administrative bloat) pharmacy school now costs nearly $200,000 just for tuition and fees.
That money has to come from somewhere, whether directly from the consumer in the form of higher prescription costs, or indirectly from the consumer by means of taxes that get funneled to the institution in the form of student loans.

Generally, most professors are paid a reasonable amount, I'd say. At least at public colleges where the salaries are public. I don't have a particular problem with a law school, for example, paying a lawyer $100,000 a year.

That's the best way to defeat a Socialist argument. Postulate that the worst enemy of the socialist gets to make the decisions. So the government gets to decide what your job is worth in "social value"? How do you feel about it if the one deciding it is a Trump loving evangelical rather than your woke ass.

461 430 Jr. Black just graduated with his undergrad degree and his textbooks were well above the $100 mark. Some were over $200. He rented what he could and he bought used online when he could. But there were some he had to buy new. Oh, and that fun idea about reselling them after class is over? Bwahaha! Because by then, the newer addition is out and we just can't have his perfectly good, albeit earlier version, of the same book suffice. There might be an extra period in there somewhere. The college textbook business is a total scam.
Posted by: Lady in Black - Death to the Man Bun at July 16, 2019 01:11 PM (JoUsr)

Right. The books have a useful life of 2 or 3 years before the new edition comes out, so the resale prices are very very low. A $300 book that you bought the new the near edition came out might fetch $100 at the end of the year. Because the rental / resale companies have to hedge hard that a new edition might come out that summer and they have a bunch of worthless inventory.

Because once the new edition comes out, the old edition sells for like $20. (which was my trick -- I said fuck it and bought old editions for my upper level law classes, and most of my professors were cool enough to give me an old syllabus with the page numbers that corresponded to the old book. Because it's not like the new editions have substantially different content then the old ones. They just move the pages around.)

Posted by: CN at July 16, 2019 01:23 PM (U7k5w)

Yep. And they push true, but misleading statistics about how much more money you'll make with a college degree.

Like, yes, people with college degrees tend to make more, overall, then the rest of the population. But there's two HUGE factors at play:

1) you're counting MD's, JD's, and jobs that require a lot more education, and while they pay a lot, most people in those jobs are so fucking buried in loans its ridiculous
and
2) you're counting a lot of idiots working at McDonalds.

And most people aren't going to end up at McDonalds or with an MD, so the outliers really do shift the numbers in a way that's pretty misleading.

A guy with an undergrad degree working in a cubicle is not necessarily making more than a guy working as a plumber. And that's the real comparison that should be made.

What Bill Clinton showed, even as everyone around him thought that he HAD to resign, was that if you just ignore the shame and power through seemingly oblivious ... people tend to lose their "anger momentum" and most others just forget.

Barky took this tactic to the next level with his total abuse of our system in shoving BarkyCare through, even after it had been killed, dead, 5 times and everyone around him - all the AMericans, at least - were convinced that it was done, just as Bill and SHrillary's asinine health care industry takeover had been done, before. But no. Barky had no AMerican sensibilities about him to stop him from saying, "Fuck it. FUck this system. FUck America. Either my national socialized health care passes or I break the system in the process. I'm happy either way." ANd he did. ANd people forgot a lot about it as he was committing new un-Constitutional acts and America-hating crimes every week.

I wonder if you've been in any of the countries Texas Dan is referring to. Take anything south of the US Border in this hemisphere, for example. Sure, you can buy property down there, and live there, and you can own it until some low level official has a friend who wants it, and then fuck you, suddenly you don't own it and you had better get out of the country if you want to stay alive.

That's what "civil law" is like in much of the world.

Remember they guy last year who moved to the Acapulco area because US drug laws were oppressive and he wanted to live where he could be Free from Government Oppression? Well he was doing great for about a year until suddenly 2 cartel guys showed up at his doorstep with M-16's and that was that. And I don't think anyone even investigated it, the police weren't going to mess with that. Oh, so THAT's the downside of a country with an ineffective legal system, his ghost must be thinking.

I always had questions about this. Living in the Detroit area there are lots of blue and white collared people. As a rule, the blue collar (factory) workers make lots more money than the white collar people, but the lifestyles are different. Blue collars have boats, snowmobiles, etc. white collar people have cottages they enjoy for maybe a few weeks a year. Hard to say who is happiest or right, but it is safe to say white collar workers know more about being better at managing their money.

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Biden's my man, because who better to tamp down the enthusiasm of the maniacal farther-left of the Democrat party? He's a tedious old fool who is a boring speaker, has no signature cause or accomplishments, and panders to the last people in the news without being able to suggest concrete entitlement payouts because he is terrified of making a tactical error and alienating some other group. His only saving grace is that he comes off as the doddering uncle who brings candy for the kids (and then paws them and smells their hair: but that's a different issue).

Is he really going to energize the Antifa fascists to go vote and stuff ballot boxes and intimidate Republican voters? Are the insane Gaia-loving enviro-wackadoodles going to rush to the polls to vote early and often to support a 77-year-old career politician who looks like everything they hate?

However, a credible argument could be made for any one of the 93 people currently campaigning for the Democrat nomination...Warren is a shrewish, nagging middle school principal; Sanders is a crazy dude who wandered in off the street and smells faintly of vomit and patchouli; Harris is a nasty and hectoring backstabber who rifles through the overcoats in the den looking for wallets; and Buttigieg looks like a cartoon character who wandered in from another dimension. And the rest of them? Even weirder and dumber.

Any one of these people should be beatable by President Trump, in spite of their many advantages; first and foremost of which is the Media-Industrial-Complex being completely and totally in the bag for the Democrats. But that may not be such a bad thing; disseminating without a critical eye every idiotic comment from every corner of the leftist cesspit certainly won't endear the Democrat party to the American people.

Commenter Monty James made an important point this morning...

It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed.
As much as I am sometimes frustrated by the President's insistence on getting the last word, simply not caving works wonders!

49 A good plan is not one that hinges on things going just so, but that results in a win for most probable scenarios. It is flexible and robust, allowing for the seizing of opportunities when available and doesn't collapse at setbacks.

Trump seizes opportunities, yes, but he acts with intention. These opportunities serve his larger goals. He does have objectives, all of which might be said to tie into the grand objective of MAGA. When it comes to these objectives he has various ideas on how they might be achieved and he pursues the path he views most likely to succeed, alternating as necessar.

Trump's no dummy, he is the master of changing the conversation to what HE wants to talk about.



From the beginning, I decided the only two candidates I could support were Trump and Carson, becuase they were NOT GOP, and I was -- and still am-- angry about Obamacare. I also think a business person is a potentially better politician than a career politician, who is only good at making speeches and getting elected.Carson is too nice, so I glommed onto Trump.

I am happy to see that I, and many others, are correct.

57 The maxim Trump follows is "L'audace, l'audace, toujours, l'audace!"

audacity - fast, open, obnoxious, surprising, it always disturbs everyone who thinks everything should be carefully measured and calculated first.

It also keeps everyone guessing and jumping, and having to react on the fly. And someone who likes to operate that way is always going to have an advantage over those that don't. Maybe he'll make mistakes - but for every mistake, he'll have a success, and he'll have 10 successes for every One that someone more careful would have had.

BREAKING: AG Barr made final decision to not prosecute officer in Eric Garner case, adopting recommendation of US Attorney's Office in Brooklyn, despite lawyers in Civil Rights Division believing that charges could have been pursued, per 2 officials.
Posted by: Tami at July 16, 2019 11:08 AM (cF8AT)

A New York grand jury looked at the evidence and decided not to indict. Solid decision by Barr not to dredge all that up again after all these years.

(Of course charges COULD have been pursued, charges always COULD be pursued - so what?)

And the photo is great.


If I could make Trump do one small thing, it would be to turn his twitter/fight-back/tenacity on the term "racist". A concept long trashed, a word long rendered meaningless or inverted - but one that was important and worth recovering.


Obviously none of his "controversial" stuff has anything to do with "race", and much mileage and fun to be had in systematically debunking the slanders and especially hanging the newly revived meaningful/morally powerful term of "racism" around the necks that deserve it. This Rep. Pressley might as well have just screamed "all of y'all are no more than tribes and categories and grievance groups, you ain't people!!!" the other day.

The only time I remember seeing her challenged was with that Million Little Pieces book. Some of her audience got mad that the author embellished stuff, and Oprah originally defended him, because he'd been on her show, so he must be great, right? When the furor didn't die down, she has the guy back on, AND TURNS ON HIM.

128 I pointed out in the previous thread that both successful Democrat Presidential candidates in the last 40 years had to have assists from a unenthusiastic Republican base to win.

And that still wasn't enough by itself.

Clinton had to split the vote.
Obama was a historic first.

McCain was a garbage candidate but Obama only got 52.9%.
And McCain sure as hell wasn't polling 90% Republican approval.

Remember: Everything Trump has and will do between now and November 2020 is to 1) Drive Republican enthusiasm, 2) win over swing voters, and 3) divide the Democrats

The last three days have been textbook perfect in delivering on all three.

Getting the Democrats to hate him, to direct their hate at him only makes him stronger with the base.
Because we see: What they say about him, they are saying about us.

Find me a single Democrat who is careful to make the distinction.

PS: Those Obama voters who voted for Trump? They are also hearing what the Democrats are saying about them.

153 Mitt Romney @ Twitter



The president's comments were destructive, demeaning and
disunifying. The president has a unique and noble calling to unite the
American people--of all different races, colors and creeds or natural
origin. In that respect, the president failed badly.

People can disagree about politics, but to tell Americans to go back
to where they came from is unseemly and over the line. And it sends the
wrong message to our enemies that that we are disunited.

It all depends on the super delegates.

On the second ballot, they're allowed to vote as they wish. Do they then vote as a block for an agreed upon candidate (like Kamala), or do they split across several forcing a third ballot?

Yes, I routinely get headaches and a racing heart from anxiety. The thing that works for me is deep breathing. Yes, I know how that sounds but it works. Breath in through the nose; hold for 5 seconds; breathe out through the mouth. Repeat as necessary, holding the breath for increasing lengths of time.

Good advice.

Many of the adverse effects of anxiety attacks come from shallow, rapid breathing. It's actually over-oxygenization. The deep slow breathing, will actually help bring you back into balance.

Well, it's important not to get too emotionally invested. Much like job interviews, being too invested will cause you to fuck up. It's ok to fuck up from time to time too, and it's never the end of the world(unless the chica is a murderer). You can always tell yourself you've got reasonable odds of not dying here, which means you always have another shot with other women.

The Squad made abject asses out of themselves yesterday and the president was clearly proven right in his taunts. That settled it.

But here comes Mitt with his virtue-signalling to "save the day." And you know what? It backfired because all the MSM can talk about now is how Romney walked away when asked if Trump's tweet's "were racist." They don't care that he tweeted criticism of Trump. It earned him NOTHING from the media--but it cost what precious little credibility he may sill have had.

>>i say it was an unnecessary move.

I think you are mistaking his goal. Nancy was trying to distance the rest of the Democrat caucus from the Squad and their comments. Her goal was to get the media to focus on her message and claim that the Squad was only speaking for themselves.

Trump wanted to make sure that the Squad's message was the Democrats message and he forced Nancy to defend the Squad and bring them back into the fold.

Trump wants to run on loving America, putting America and Americans first and against socialism, anti-semitism, Islamic terror and securing the borders and getting rid of illegals. That is much easier to do when the Squad is the face of the Democrat Party.

People can disagree about politics, but to tell Americans to go back to where they came from is unseemly and over the line. And it sends the wrong message to our enemies that that we are disunited.

291 Yeah, Trump really stepped in it--they've gone from calling him a Nazi racist to calling him a racist Nazi.

He should have said nothing.

PS: Did you all forget that not too long ago there was a very popular country song about "America, love it or leave it?"
You know, very popular with the folks that swept Reagan to a 49 state landslide?
I'm sure they'll hang their heads in shame for such bad think and not vote at all, nope not at all. Calling them racist makes them stay home and hide.

292 I believe Biden is a weak, vulnerable candidate prone to mistakes and inconsistent in his positions. But I also believe it is a substantial mistake to underestimate him.

For Democrats, these races are not often about the candidate per se. They are contests Democrats play like a team sport. They turn on their machine and drive votes to the polls no matter who the candidate is. Add a significant amount of TDS, and things become a bit more energetic.

I suppose in the end the game never changes in the fact you have to amass enough votes to win. But to be frank, we're not very good at that. In fact,we had our asses handed to us because we were not prepared when Democrats moved onto new devices like vote harvesting and focusing on post election stealing of votes. So I have little faith in the Republican jalopy.

Trump may bring a lot of unknowns and firsts that make things hard to predict. I suppose in a sane world you could look at what he's done and stands for, as opposed to the other side, and believe this can't even be close. But the world is no longer sane and that people even lean towards what Democrats are peddling is frightening not just electorally, but to the future of our country.

In the end I believe very strongly that Trump will win. That right and good for the balance of our country will trample socialism, the Democrats loathing of America, their fondness for people who are not citizens, socialism, their shaming of success, a lack of family values, a fondness for killing the most vulnerable among us, big government, negative constitutional liberty and the destruction of individual rights. But if we treat this as something other than an existential battle, we will lose and lose big.

294 It all depends on the super delegates.

On the second ballot, they're allowed to vote as they wish. Do they then vote as a block for an agreed upon candidate (like Kamala), or do they split across several forcing a third ballot?

If that third ballot comes up, I predict chaos to ensue, which is the perfect place for someone like Hillary to frame herself as a unity candidate.

I think if they're writing off 2020, then it's an effort to wrest control of the Party from the other side.

The Activist Left seems to really want this win.

The Establishment seems a bit more muted on the matter.

I would be far from surprised if the Establishment was trying to give the race to the crazies in an effort to purge them from leadership within the party afterwards.

But the race is far too chaotic right now to think that's working. Obama left a power vacuum at the top of the party that was supposed to be filly by Hillary (fat joke implied). Since she failed miserably and Obama's making no effort to establish control, there is only chaos in its place.

But I think Justice Dems have it in mind to simply sacrifice a few election cycles in order to consolidate control of the Dem Party, and force it into outright Maoism, against the day when they simply win by default (which will eventually happen, probably right after Trump).

Then they will have no impediment to the Plan.

Framing it as he did at the beginning started the narrative on a bad foot and I don't think it was a 3d chess move at all.

I've always suspected that there was a concerted Deep State effort after 9/11 to hire mohammedans into airport service positions. Mostly to thumb a nose at any red-blooded American (of any color).

Virtually every major airport I've been through in the past 20 years has looked like Bakara Market in Mog.

452 I have wondered much that the Left has not went after Churches and their tax exempt status... lots of stuff to think about here for me, vis a vis this government money paid for " outreach".....
Posted by: kraken at July 16, 2019 11:58 AM (bCLt0)

The money for refugees is not being sent directly to churches, i.e. church treasuries. The churches set up an outside program under a 501 c to accept federal funds and contributions to their refugee resettlement program. They then work with the Fed govt to bring "refugees" into the USA, directly to their shelters, who then house them in contracted apartments. work with existing state govt to get them signed up for everything from food stamps, to utility vouchers to enrollment in school for children, daycare, etc. Until those things are in place( they can get these govt programs because the are considered REFUGEES, not illegals) the church pays for all their needs via the govt funds they are receiving into the 501.

There are locations in Columbus Ohio where virtually the entire residential population are Somalis. Some here remember the Somali 20 something who was attending Ohio State on the taxpayer dime who drove onto campus one day, jumped out of his car and started slashing people with a large knife. Fortunately, campus police officer shot him dead within a few minutes of the 911 call.

This Somali had come here with his mother and half a dozen siblings via a church refugee program, just a couple of years before. The entire family was in free apartment housing , with all needs being financial covered. The knifer had amazingly , earned a two year community college degree in the two years he had been in the country, and had been accepted to finish a 4 year degree at OSU. Seemed quite miraculous to me, but I guess schools in Somalia are way ahead of US HS, so this guy must have been very advanced, including in English to have arrived and earned a two year degree immediately. ( sarc).


The left, Democrats and leftist churches are all in this together. It's why no peep from the ACLU or Democrats in general.

Then I'll stick with my belief that such an action would be the most divisive thing any political party in the USA in this age can do. The smoke-filled room days of the conventions are over, it is the primary/caucus system that provides the nominee with legitimacy. After all of those months of campaigning and voting, volunteering time and donating money, and then a bunch of guys you probably never heard of swoop in at the big party and say - "Just kidding, the nominee is going to be (fill in name here) because we say so. Thanks for all of your hard work and don't forget to vote." and that is going to go down with nary a murmur?

audacity - fast, open, obnoxious, surprising, it always disturbs everyone who thinks everything should be carefully measured and calculated first.

It also keeps everyone guessing and jumping, and having to react on the fly. And someone who likes to operate that way is always going to have an advantage over those that don't.

they don't want to give up their life of leisure (and lewdness) ...

they don't want to be controlled by DeepState ...

they don't want to risk the possible government or civil suit attacks on their great wealth ... (seeing attacks on Trump)

they don't want to run and be exposed as ignorant on most issues, snark from the sidelines is easier ....

There's not enough variation in color, but that's sorta understandable when the subject matter is a swamp. They're not exactly known for spectacular displays of color. Hope the artist got better with time. This looks like a first attempt to me.

It won't be Biden.

Since 1980, they've had 2 successful candidates.

Clinton won because of significant dissatisfaction of Republican voters who split with Perot.
Obama was because he was historic plus a dose of GOPe fatigue.

Hillary was to be another historic.

Trump polls 89% support of Republicans.

Without historic at the top of the ticket, the Dems have no motivation

And they'll never get Obama level turnout and support from blacks again--even if Obama endorsed him, they weren't voting for Biden then or now

open a brokerage account. If it is your first time you might want to go to an office and meet someone and talk about your plans. I see Fidelity offices around here a lot but if I had to pick a brokerage it would be Schwab. I assume they still have offices but it has been a long time. Of course you don't have to do that as you can do it all online. But if you are new, certainly talk with someone even if only on the phone.

And Butt-edge-edge, well, again they won't admit it but they know black folks aren't going to rush out to vote for a fanook.

The only "historic" they have left that might have a shot is with a woman. Harris or Liawatha. My money's on a hard DNC/MFM (birm) push for the genuine PoC. Kamalamadingdong.

They're definitely hoping for that, for sure, but if it didn't work for Hillary against Trump in his 2016 form, it's not going to work for Kamala or Warren against Trump in his 2020 form.

Women have never voted as a block like blacks have. Plus, the grievance industry for women is in its infancy when compared to that of the black population.

When this fails again, Democrats will probably end up turning to Latinos for their Intersectional Savior.

Likely somewhat less than a zillion will show up for the event.

296 A man arrested after federal law enforcement officers found more than 1,000 guns at a home in one of the richest areas of Los Angeles has been charged with 64 felony counts, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.

I don't believe there is an unlawful quanity of guns, so the "1,000 guns" is click bait.

Los Angeles police said at the time of the seizure, which it called one of the largest recoveries of weapons in LAPD history, that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives received information that a person was selling and manufacturing illegal guns, which led to the search warrant.

This is a big flag .. LAPD is notorious for "loosing" seized guns .. which end up in the collections of members of LAPD

F4U-5P Bu No 122169, first -5P built, of VC-62 off USS Leyte was shot down over North Korea. The pilot was rescued but then the H-5H rescue helicopter ran out of fuel, killing all aboard.

337 Communists have been trying to use race as their entry card into the
U.S. for 100 years. Richard Wright, a communist at the time, wrote
extensively (in the 1930s and 40s) about their goal to use race and
white guilt to grow and fortify communism in the United States and how
it would work. In his most famous book, Native Son he wrote about
the criminal "Bigger Thomas," who despite being a rapist, a murderer,
and an abuser, is excused by the communists and defended because he's
such a clear example of what the US "society" creates by being racist.

It's a question of what to fill it with.

Do you go with something like Christianity, which provides large answers and attempts to give you purpose?

Or do reject it because believing in a 2,000 year old carpenter as your savior is just so unreasonable and, instead, you will fill that void with corporate product and meaningless ironic actions?

The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed... Therefore they sent their emissaries into the field to exploit the question of slavery and to open an abyss between the two sections of the Union."

My passport, my marriage license, and a utility bill to prove I'm still living at the same address.

People have nothing in their lives that give them meaning, so they

attach themselves to memes ironically in order to fill the day. So, when

a show they like features talk of a McDonald's sauce that hasn't

existed in 20+ years, they latch onto it and scream at McDonald's to

bring it back. They do this in the internet space and in meat space. The

idea is that there's ironic fun to it, but you can tell that it stems

from some kind of void in their lives. Modern life is really sad in many ways.
