THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

"I'm hopeful in another 30 to 45 days. But this is of such significance that we can't rush to an answer. It's got to be right. We're not going to get a second chance." Commandant Gen. David Berger


Quote II

Simply put, there is no daylight between us and the City on the importance of preserving public housing — and we will continue to urge the City to work with us to pass these comprehensive regulations and create a path toward responsible home sharing. Josh Meltzer, Head of Northeast Policy for Airbnb


Quote III

As it relates to PG&E, it's about dog-eats-dog capitalism meeting climate change. It's about corporate greed meeting climate change. It's about decades of mismanagement. It's about focusing on shareholders and dividends over you and members of the public." Gov. Gavin Newsome (D-CA)


Quote IV

“I don’t support — a mandatory buyback is essentially confiscation, which I think is unconstitutional. It means that I am going to walk into your house and take something whether you like it or not. I don’t think that stands up to constitutional scrutiny.” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)


Quote V

“This wasn’t a body shot. This was a head shot. My son was shot in the left side of his head just behind his ear. A head shot is personal,” Temia Hairston


Quote VI

“I thought I did a good thing, he had this book for diabetes, I did for two young lads who died in ‘15 and ‘17, that was never mentioned. I did a great thing, I thought, for 1500 troops at a hockey game in Branson. They were all forgotten. The one thing that got me was “You people.” I suppose, if I had to do it over again, I would have said “Everybody.” But “You people” are the people they listen to. The silent majority are always silent. The forces are with me. Everybody is with me. The firefighters, the whole deal. But it doesn’t make any sense, and I was brought in, and I was told that I was fired, after 38 years. You know, I stand by what I said, and I still mean it.”Don Cherry

What's been going on in WI...................

8" screwdriver in the rectum. I suppose this could have happened to any man from any state. But, if you guessed Florida Man, you are spot on.

n a recent medical mishap, a 46-year-old man was admitted for surgery at a hospital in Florida to remove a screwdriver that was stuck inside his rectum.

According to Florida’s WFLA news outlet, the man entered the operation room in a state of septic shock. He underwent two separate surgeries to get rid of the foreign object — and even had a chunk of his rectum removed to avoid further infection.

The man told doctors he’d been experiencing pain in his abdomen and pelvis for a week. A CT scan quickly revealed the cause: a full-sized screwdriver lodged inside his rectum. The tool, which was almost eight inches long, was buried deep enough that it had pierced his large intestine.


If you are cringing, you are not alone.

So we all know about Florida Screw Driver Man. Perhaps our medical records will be available to all for viewing.

Google now has access to detailed medical records on tens of millions of Americans, but the company promises it won't mix that medical data with any of the other data Google collects on consumers who use its services.

Google has access to detailed health records on tens of millions of Americans
Google provided this statement yesterday shortly after The Wall Street Journal reported that Google is partnering with Ascension, the country's second-largest health care system, "on a project to collect and crunch the detailed personal-health information of millions of people across 21 states."

"To be clear: under this arrangement, Ascension's data cannot be used for any other purpose than for providing these services we're offering under the agreement, and patient data cannot and will not be combined with any Google consumer data," Google said in a blog post. That would mean Google won't use the medical data to target advertisements at users of Google services.


But Google promises. Yeah, they won't do that in your mouth either.

When will today's adults start equipping children to grow up and become responsible adults? Experts worry about active shooter drills in schools.

A regular drumbeat of mass shootings in the U.S., both inside schools and out, has ramped up pressure on education and law enforcement officials to do all they can to prevent the next attack.

Close to all public schools in the U.S. conducted some kind of lockdown drill in 2015-2016, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

Last year, 57% of teens told researchers they worry about a shooting happening at their school. A slightly higher percentage of parents of teenagers, 63%, fear a shooting at their child's school, the Pew Research Center found.

But many experts and parents are asking if the drills, some complete with simulated gunfire, are doing more harm than good.

ICYMI. All good things must come to an end.

After what the Washington Post calls "weeks of controversy with low scores," former press secretary Sean Spicer finally got axed Monday on Dancing With the Stars, in the show's ninth week. Spicer hasn't exactly been a judges' favorite—at one point, Carrie Ann Inaba said, "Sometimes it looks like you are doing the same dance over and over again," per EW.com. Spicer, 48, danced a fox trot and an Argentine tango (which judge Bruno Tonioli called an "Argentine struggle") with temporary partner Jenna Johnson, and for the first time he ended up as one of the bottom two contenders.

The judges get to pick which one of the bottom two stays, and they didn't hedge. The Post notes that a social media campaign appeared to help Spicer rack up viewer votes week after week, with even President Trump weighing in on occasion. Before Monday's performance, Trump called Spicer "a great and very loyal guy who is working very hard" and urged viewers to cast their vote for him in a now-deleted tweet. After Spicer was eliminated, Trump put up a new post, gushing, "A great try by @seanspicer. We are all proud of you!" Spicer's reply to his old boss: "Thank you @POTUS @realDonaldTrump I can't begin to express how much your continued support has meant, especially during my time on @DancingABC."

Mrs. Mis. Hum. says no. "We don't need to mix a flunkie with the two other delinquents."

INSIDE THE WORLD OF GUIDE DOG DROPOUTS
In this highly competitive training, pup perfection is demanded — and not every student can make it to graduation. Here's what happens to the still very good boys who need a sudden ‘career change.’

When I meet Eddie, a yellow Labrador, at a friend’s family barbecue in Detroit, it’s clear he isn’t like other dogs. He knows how to sit, stay and walk (on- or off-leash), but his best trick is being able to read a room. Whether his role is to greet a guest, play with children or rest his head on my lap as we drink beers by the bonfire, Eddie always does the right thing. All the while, he’s never a nerd about his intrinsic obedience. “Dude, what’s your dog’s deal?” I eventually ask Delia Bryan, Eddie’s owner and a family friend.

“He’s a guide-dog-school reject,” she tells me.

The ONT will give her credit: Joy Reid is an equal opportunity bigot.

With the Democratic Party about to come out from behind closed doors in the basement of the U.S. Capitol and take their impeachment inquisition before cameras this week, MSNBC’s Joy Reid beat the rush in assisting the party with their objective — shaping public opinion.

Doing so while attacking Thanksgiving.

“We’re just over two weeks away from one of the most beloved American food holidays,” the AM Joy host said Saturday in her opening remarks. “Thanksgiving, where problematic actual history meets delicious cuisine and many of you will be heading home to spend time are family and friends, eat a little too much and perhaps engage in a dreaded contentious political debate with your cranky uncle Rosco when he starts yelling, ‘Read the transcript!’ at the dinner table, between bites of turkey and pumpkin pie.

Talk about a chip on the shoulder.

Completely classless? Yes. Criminal? I guess that is why there is 911.

Amazon has pulled an offensive shirt emblazoned with “Daddy’s Little Slut” thanks to some good old-fashioned Twitter shaming.

But it has allowed its third party seller to continue hawking other off-colour items.

The original $18 shirt sold by OnlyBabyCare started going viral last Friday morning, as images of the shocking slogan circulated Twitter.

It has been available on Amazon since June, with a description claiming it was “suitable” for “playing outside, birthday party, baby shower, baptism” among other family-friendly activities.

Rich boomer in favor of Special Snowflakes.

Abigail Disney, the millionaire heiress of the Disney fortune, offered a scathing rebuke of fellow Boomers on Twitter, criticizing their attitudes towards younger generations and telling them to "sit the f--k down and let the kids drive."

Prohibition leads to capitalism. You can't do that. Oh yeah, watch me.

Biker Gang Leader's DIY Guns Are Part of a Predictable Prohibition Story
From Australia to Massachusetts, illegal gun makers step in to supply what legal markets aren’t allowed to produce.

As a convicted felon, Bruce Sartwell isn't legally allowed to own firearms. But the regional president of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club obviously isn't the kind of guy who cares about what he's legally allowed to do; when he was arrested in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, he was found to be in possession of a rifle he'd made himself, as well as unregistered "silencers" (sound suppressors), parts, and the equipment needed to manufacture more weapons.

The story of a criminal making guns that he needs for his "trade" is all very predictable if you've been paying attention to events around the world. It also casts further doubt on the claims of gun control advocates that their favored restrictions will make the country safer.

Never stick your tobacco in crazy your ass. Genius Award Winners.

A state appeals court panel has refused to void a prisoner’s conviction for a brutal attempt to steal contraband tobacco hidden in another inmate’s rectum.

The Superior Court decision outlined in an opinion by Judge Paula Francisco Ott sinks Maurice Wakefield II’s bid to overturn the 9- to 18-year prison term he received for the attack.

Wakefield’s conviction stems from an incident in E Block at the Blair County Prison on the night of March 16, 2017.

Too late for that diploma? Never. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Corporal Lewie Shaw received his high school diploma more than 70 years after he left school and joined the Marines.

Shaw enlisted in 1943.

He fought in Tinian, Saipan and Iwo Jima. He was wounded fighting for his country.

"One come out with a phosphorus grenade got me across the backside," he told KJRH. "And I didn't want to tell anybody. A good Marine doesn't get shot in the back."

I remember it well, but it's an insane comparison to make. Or maybe not... When Gorbachev fell, a band of Party apparatchiks who had launched the coup against him attempted to stay in control and keep the USSR going, but the local army units moved on the Parliament building where they were holed up. (iirc) Yeltsin gained fame by publicly riding on one of the tanks. The coup plotters fled, the old USSR died, and the modern state of Russia was born.

74 at least 95% of the commentators in the Tacoma gun and ammo tax are against the tax, and are making good, rational points.


My money is the Tacoma city council will ignore these ideas completely.


$25 on each gun, and 2 cents per round of ammo.

the left falsely associates gun violence from criminals with the actions of responsible citizens.


the woman running the event is the Tacoma mayor.

"We're just over two weeks away from one of the most beloved American food holidays," the AM Joy host said Saturday in her opening remarks. "Thanksgiving, where problematic actual history meets delicious cuisine and many of you will be heading home to spend time are family and friends, eat a little too much and perhaps engage in a dreaded contentious political debate with your cranky uncle Rosco when he starts yelling, 'Read the transcript!' at the dinner table, between bites of turkey and pumpkin pie."


I am so sick of these stupid and contentious fucks trying to turn every holiday and family gatherings into little MIniTru camps. Throw their asses out of the dwelling the second they start their ignorant rants.

88 Regarding the home manufacture of boomsticks:

The thing that concerns me the most would be the availability of ammunition should the supply chain for that somehow become compromised...

Making a weapon is technically easy, compared to some other sorts of machinery made of metal... but what about ammo, in sufficient quantities -- from scratch?

We'll weather the impeachment business just fine. For those who are unsure, please remember the Civil War--a situation that would have destroyed a country with a lesser political system.

Because we live in the most exceptional country on the planet, governed, NOT ruled by a political system unique in history.

One of the results has been an extraordinary populace found in no other country.

What we face now is perilous, yes, but ultimately will be another similar danger filled issue we will have prevailed over.
Never doubt and never falter.

112 Hello, horde. My job interview today was rather strange - but in a good way. The woman who interviewed me urged me to apply for another job in the same department - a significantly higher paying one. She told me she was sure I could handle the job I originally applied for but someone with my experience would be more useful in the higher position. (I hadn't even seen the higher paying job on their website when I was job hunting.) She said she and her boss were impressed by my resume, and since they have quite a few "newbies" in the department they really need someone with my experience.

So when I got home, I applied for the second job, which I have already been interviewed for

They just started interviewing for both positions, so I'm not cocky yet - I've had too many disappointments for that. But it felt good to be in an environment where my years of experience was an asset, instead of feeling like my age was working against me.

I was asked about the impeachment kangaroo court by my wife's parents tonight. "Let me be blunt," I replied, "it's all bullshit. I am sick and tired of half this country having pitched a prolonged fit of nearly three years all because they refuse to accept the results of a validly contested election." I threw in a scathing denunciation of the MSM having sat on the Epstein story for three years, too. "What kind of monsters would allow a pedophilic monster three years' time to continue his criminal and immoral behavior when they had the goods on him to have him put away? They are complicit in his crimes, whatever they were, during that period."

I hated to have launched on them when it is Mrs. K's idiot siblings to whom those things ought to have been delivered.

Same here, but '70s mostly. Loser? I think I escaped fitting into that particular box.

Poorer than a sharecropper's bastard kid? Yeah, that pretty much fits the description.

All what I made from work went to putting food on the table. Even at 14, if I didn't work, we risked not getting to eat. Yeah, things where that thin, and remained so even after joining the USAF, who didn't see fit to allow my to declare my dying Mom as my dependent.

So, I did it out of pocket, such as it was.

Only concert I got to see in my teen years was a day-long show at San Diego Stadium, sponsored by KGB-101 FM radio.

Foghat was one of the acts. And a fog of pot smoke that must've looked like an industrial chimney rising up out of the stands.

J. Giles Band. I forget the rest.

Admission price: $1.01. Thanks to the radio station.

Rode my freakin' bicycle to that show.

Missing concerts wasn't all I missed out on, either.

Life ain't fun for a poor kid in paradise. Wasn't till many years later that I began to find traction, here and there. Lots of slidin' back downhill, too.

Somehow or another, it all comes down to perseverance.

Or what I did. Just too stupid to quit.

No, these are 2 separate positions and they want to hire 2 people. The one I applied for is basically identical to a job I did for 5 years.

The other position will be more challenging, more of a "big picture" job. The big project for 2020 is working with the Legal Department to revise and revamp all of the department's policies. I've written a few policies before and liked that work, so I hope I get the job.

148 Speaking of Turkey Day, I have noticed this year a number of yards in my area are decorated specifically for Thanksgiving. Big inflatable turkeys wearing Pilgrim hats not to mention giant Pilgrim couples, strings of lights in autumn colors, pumpkin and turkey cut-outs in the windows, etc. It's as elaborate as the stuff people do for Halloween or Christmas. I like it. I'm sure it gives the Joy Reids of the world heart palpitations at the unseemliness of it all.

Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh at November 12, 2019 10:10 PM (7rVsF)

Over the years, Newsome, directly and through his relatives, received about $700,000 from PG&E. Like other politicians in CA, he was bribed by the utility to let them utterly slide on maintenance and safety requirements. He is a pathological and opportunistic liar. A true hollow man.

There are transmission towers in the PG&E system that are over 100 years old. Their practice is zero preventive maintenance, to only fix things when they break. The executives gave themselves big bonuses after burning up all those people last year. The company is bankrupt but they're fine. Everybody who matters is well-compensated happy. (The people dying in fires or sitting through planned power outages don't matter.)

Load up your plate with the stuff you like and then take just a tiny bit of the kale, because jeez, there's just no room for anything more.

I do that with my brother's cranberry sauce. We were all happy with plain old cranberry sauce out of the can like mom always had and then he decided to start making it himself. Except he doesn't put enough sugar in it and there's some other weird offputting spice in there. But he's very proud of his contribution, so I take a tablespoon of it every year.

When I worked for 20+ years in the textile fibers field and I received weekly patent digests, the largest section almost inevitably dealt with spun in additives or surface finishes designed to combat damage from the sun's ultraviolet rays.

Remember vinyl roofs on cars? Yeah ...

230 Fortunately, nobody in my family is picky at Thanksgiving. The only problem we always run into is that everyone likes the dark meat and there's not enough to go around.

When I was a kid, I sat at the far end of the table and was inevitably disappointed by the time the turkey reached me and all the dark meat was gone.

Maybe we should roast ducks instead!
Posted by: Donna&&&&V. at November 12, 2019 10:49 PM (d6Ksn)

I have two or three thigh/leg turkey quarters in y freezer that weigh 8 or 9 pounds. That should make enough dark meat.

Well, they're seriously bad for you. Worse than regular cigarettes.

But so are menthols.

It's why I generally avoid them, but I like both from time to time.

I can make that call. Don't need the government to call it for me.

qdpsteve - my son flew me out to CA a few years ago and we stayed at the Ahwahnee. Terrific place. It was a trip of a lifetime. As an adult, you don't really get too many chances to be one on one with one of your kids. We had a ball.

319 The Tacoma public commenting session continues.


Although the gun tax was the issue, there are quite a few that are commenting on a local bio-fuel manufacturing plant that is proposed for the Tacoma tideflats.

There has been a lot of opposition over the last few years because it would stink. Not unlike the old pulp mills that Tacoma was once famous for. ("the Aroma from Tacoma")


What I find most interesting is the 20-somethings that are mostly college educated and truly believe that the planet is finished and their lives are turning to shit, because of fossil fuels.

They really believe this shit. To some of them, it is the 4th quarter of Earth's life, and humanity is down by many touchdowns. And their QB just went down.

Hate to say it, but if they want to turn it back a couple centuries, over half of today's population must be immediately eliminated.

Following his Iranian masters' orders, he fired rockets into Israel to try to disrupt the Eurovision song contest, and fired rockets at a music festival in Israel near Gaza.

Unfortunately for him, he also fired rockets at a Benjamin Netanyahu campaign rally near Gaza on September 10th, forcing Netanyahu off the stage, and into a bomb shelter.

Netanyahu was pissed, and the IDF waited for the right opportunity, and fired a rocket a couple of days ago, killing Abu-al-Ata and his wife, without harming anyone else in the apartment building they were staying in.

I was old enough to know how to light a match but still young enough that an adult would be horrified to see me do it. Passing through my parents' bedroom, I spotted a cig butt in an ashtray. One of Mom's Newports. And matches.

I lit up that Newport butt and took a hit... hilarity of a sort ensued.

I won't say I never touched tobacco - I've been known to enjoy a good cigar - but that incident ensured I would never get the habit.

The old lady said, "Oh my, that isn't good. Could I try again with my glasses?"

384 Israel [probably] also did another, possibly related hit, in Damascus, fairly precise.

Israel has been expecting a Saudi-style cruise missile attack from Iran, using Iraqi and Yemeni proxies.

Israel's latest strikes are designed to show that targeting the Israeli leadership is crossing a red line, and to remind the Iranian mullahs that they are not exempt from targeting, if they have their lackeys attack Israel.

I'll tell you what this is. Epstein was intel. His job was to get compromise and get pictures of all the movers and shakers the CIA and Five-Eyes and others (Mossad, included) wanted.

Remember that quote by one of the prosecutors in Florida that "Epstein was intel" and untouchable.

Ghislaine (and her daddy was some kind of triple or quadruple agent for everybody -- hell he probably didn't know himself whose side he was really on) was in on it. She was telling her "clients", CIA mainly, that she would spill the beans on 'em.

The notion of the CIA intentionally using underage girls to compromise people wouldn't sit too well with the public.

And that's exactly what they were doing.

461 Well, I messed with LED's again tonight. I cut off sections of the aluminum backing strip from the dead Samsung TV, and soldered wires to the + and - traces for the LED's. Some lit right away on 3 volts from two "D" cells. Some never lit at all, or blinked once, faintly. And a couple would not light initially on 3 volts, but if I added more "D" cells to the stack, and zapped them with 4.5 or 6 volts, they lit up brilliantly. And thereafter would light on three volts. I wonder if the active junction in a LED can become "clogged" somehow. And one would not light on six volts, but gave out all its light in one mighty flash when hooked to a 9 volt battery.

I put an ammeter in the circuit, and one LED, while lit, pulled 80 mA at 3 volts. So about a quarter watt. Which is probably about as much power dissipation as a tiny little surface mount device about 3 mm square can handle.

Robert Maxwell "had a heart attack and fell off his yacht and drowned". A tragic boating accident. There were all sorts of financial irregularities with his empire.

He had raided hundreds of millions of pounds from some of his company's pension funds and used that to shore up his other companies. His death almost caused a mini-crash of the London banksters.

Goldman-Sachs and the British Govt bailed it out. That is, the British taxpayer had to make Maxwell's stolen funds good -- well, 50 cents on the dollar.

That's the level Ghislaine's Daddy was on.

He given a state funeral in all but name by Israel and buried on the Mount of Olives. Six former and current heads of the Mossad attended, as well as PM Yitzhak Shamir. The then President of Israel eulogized him.

The yacht Bobby Maxwell fell off of was named "Lady Ghislaine". Whether he named the boat after his daughter, or the daughter after his boat, I don't know.

Ol' Robert had some, uh, "proclivities". There was something very weird going on with young Ghislaine. I read something that she "loved Epstein like she loved her father".

Maxwell had several children, including other daughters. Ghislaine was Daddy's favorite.

When you read about, it gets very creepy indeed.

Ghislaine once hosted a dinner party for a bunch of girls, where she put dildos at all the plates and instructed them on BJ techniques.

I wonder who taught her?

They found Maxwell's body, fishing it out of the Atlantic a while after he went missing. Lady Ghislaine was cruising near the Canary Islands when he went missing.

There was an inquest, which ruled he had a heart attack and fell overboard officially. However, the three imminent pathologists who did the autopsy couldn't agree on a cause of death. The judge made the ruling, and assured it wasn't foul play, so shut up.

I think we can just call it 'Evil.'

This is something I come back to from time to time. Today, we conservatives (at least social traditionalists) bemoan that kids are not left to be kids but bombarded by sexual innuendo, messaging, the horrors of adult life way too early. They do not get a chance to be kids like most of us, ideally, were able to.

The thing is, what is going on now was pretty common in a lot of corners of the world just 2-300 years ago. Moloch worship. Child sex slavery. All of it. All the horrors of history laid bare and now repeated again.

So what we are really bemoaning was not some time honored thing that stretched back through history. What we are bemoaning is a momentary stretch of time when kids did not have to worry about childhood death or being prey for fucked up adults. So, what, a 50 year stretch?

This is one case where the Tradition argument would be on the other side. I say burn the mother fucker down. Kids should be able to be kids and left the hell alone.

I was pissed, and wanted to hit him again, and my brother sat me down and told me never to lay another finger on him, because his brother went to the joint selling us a QP, and we had to let him earn for it.

Maybe. I do not know what the answer is. It just seems like we spent thousands of years to get to a point where we had cured childhood mortality. And for a brief shining moment, we achieved it and kids had what every parent wanted for their kids for thousands of years. (Note: I am not saying this was the reality for all kids- of course it wasn't.)

Then we ok'd freestyle abortion and condoned it culturally. So every gain we made in keeping kids alive is undone in a decade. And this time, the kids do not even get headstones to mark their passing to be observed by distant relatives when they place flowers on their family graves on Memorial Day.

Then we started bringing in the gay and tranny shit and involving kids.

Bring on a plague. People are too stupid to realize the realities of the situation and what is right and what is wrong without a knife to their throat.

525 Yeltsin and tanks was in fact both the 1991 and 1993 events. First one, he stood on the tank during the abortive coup by the Extraordinary Committee on the Emergency situation [8 thuggish d-bags]. Other one, Boris ordered the tanks to fire on the parliament [White House]. In both, we cannot confirm his blood alcohol level at any given time.

BTRs not tanks, I remember the breathless reporter saying they had brought up the artillery to level parliament - so I put down what ever I was studying and went over to the old BW for the show. Figurering rolling up the 152 mobiles was a very Russian thing to do. Disappointed it was little 37mm BTRs

Killed 75% of (R) bills for two years also.

Only major agenda item he permitted for a vote was weak tea tax reform.

Slooooow walks nominations.

Keeps Senate in session to deny Trump recess appointments.

He gainsays and makes veiled threats against the President in the media. Sometimes overtly, as with Sessions.

All of his behavior (aside from the judiciary, which he'll have to live with after Trump is gone) indicates a plan to run out the clock on him.

And remember, Trump's entire core agenda runs counter to his own (globalism, China trade, and illegal immigration).

And if you think he's unwilling to get in the gutter to knife a fellow Republican, just ask McDaniel or Moore how that works.

A man who trusts that snake is a fool.

Luckily I don't think Trump is as credulous as many others.

While the cretinous press and racist-authoritarian [Dem] politicos and even the Top Men at the FBI rant about the 97% imaginary and 1OO% inconsequential "white nationalism" and "white supremacy" menace, actual daily crude unbelievable violence is directed at a religious minority by ..... um, well, um .... non-white people who are all just about to turn their lives around.

him in this election. So he's trying to make sure it doesn't even reach

Concur completely with this assessment, McConnel has passed or helped with any of Trump's core agenda, all of Trumps achievements have been through executive action.
The tax cuts while nice have had very little to do with the economic success seen under Trump, and they weren't done for Trump they were done for the GOPs donor class.

Embrace the power of and.

Rural living REQUIRES a certain amount of self-sufficiency. In an urban environment, self-sufficiency isn't nearly such a consideration. City services and retail businesses take care of everything, even in the event of disasters or disruptions.

Particularly in the case of the poor and unskilled, who can't scratch out a miserable existence in the urban environment, and turn to public services for aid.

That leads to a natural tendency toward big government, even among the middle class, who need the trash pulled and the streets kept in good order.

Big government in turns attracts government enthusiasts, who are natural thieves and predators, who degrade society for their own advancement.

I read an article some time ago that basically argued the 2016 election really came down to whether you were an IKEA person or not (Trump voters being the latter). Kind of hackneyed, but the basic point was that like the urban yuppies, especially the millennial urban yuppies, IKEA is cheap and interchangeable and blandly globalist. It has no sense of place, is even hostile to the concept of a sense of place. It is globalism personified.

189 145, I would argue the opposite has been true in the U.S, the cities by and large have become more and more dysfunctional and can no longer perform basic functions of order and public services. Trends come from the West Coast and as LA , San Fran, Portland, and Seattle become literally shit holes with open defecation in the streets, these will set the mark for Eastern cities like NYC to emulate. Chicago will soon go bankrupt, and many other cities face similar challenges as the pension bomb goes off.

That is why most productive people with children live in the suburbs and commute. You will see this accelerate as the cities decline. Now that the inner suburbs have become deluged, in some places, either people are moving further out or leaving a place altogether.

229 167, Sundance has stared into the abyss too much in my opinion. His optimism vanished as Session was shown to be a doddering old fool and Rosenstein was in fact a rat. Now he believes that Barr is a fixer, McConnell is an evil genius, Trump is doomed, and his last post is about as black pilled as you can get.

In fact, McConnell is rather stupid in some ways as he nearly got his butt beat six years ago by Bevan and his Chinese money is becoming public knowledge. He is also implicated in the FISA stuff as a member of the gang of 8 which is why he has allowed fellow corruptican Burr to keep that committee a nest of vipers.

But, think back to the end of the Untouchables when Capone finally goes to trial believing the fix was in. All Trump has to say to the Turtle is that his deeds and name are in the FISA intercepts too. Ditto for Feinstein, Warner, Burr, and the rest of the Uniparty.

There is an old Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam cartoon where they are standing next to a powder magazine. Bugs Bunny keeps lighting a match and dropping into the magazine, and Yosemite Sam keeps going down and blowing it out. Finally, Yosemite Sam warns Bugs that the next time that Bugs lights a match and pitches it in, Yosemite will not put it out. Bugs does, Yosemite waits, and waits, and waits, then cannot take it anymore--he goes down into the powder magazine too late and it blows up.

That is Trump (Bugs) and Yosemite Sam (McConnell) in a nutshell. With the Dems, it is more like Roadrunner (Trump) and Wiley E. Coyote (Dems). Meep Meep indeed.

I haven't made plans to flee California, despite what the probable future here looks like, because I don't think there is ultimately any geographical protection long term. This is going to reach everywhere ultimately. It will either be defeated here, or it will win everywhere. Think of pockets of un-destroyed country as likely de facto colonies and playthings of the ruined parts. Like LA taking all the water from the distant Owens Valley and turning it into a desert back in the 1920s. Also remember all the Federal initiatives to make outlying areas more 'diverse.' Somalis in suddenly appearing in Maine and Alaska, Section 8 housing in any neighborhood deemed insufficiently vibrant. They will not stop unless made to stop.

240 220, it was a cert decision, there were not four justices that wanted to hear it. It is really rare for interlocutory appeals to be granted cert as the Supreme Court prefers that the case go through its natural progress through the court system rather than interrupting it in the middle. This is not a surprise that they rejected cert at this point. However, I will argue too that the lawyers that Remington hired really sucked on the legal question remaining on advertising from reading the CT. Sup. Ct opinion.

It's a point I make occasionally. People complain about self-proclaimed conservatives claiming that a given initiative is "not the hill to die on". But the "not the hill to die on" approach is exactly the one that's being taken with California. It *must* be turned back in California, or it'll spread to the rest of the country (as it's already doing). You can't win by only fighting defensively. You have to go on the offense, as well.

No actually it does not work that way. The USSC does not take up cases that have not already gone through the lower courts, or which come to them someway through their own rules. I realize you want vindication of Remington (and all other firearms manufacturers fast) but it does not go that way. At all.


The district court has not even addressed the merits of the case to determine if the alleged fact pattern by the plaintiffs fits within the statute's exceptions. Until that happens you will not get an appellate decision at either the circuit court or supreme court level.


Quite literally - nothing has yet happened.

262 236, yes and no. Anarchy which is essentially what the wealthy and corporations seem to want is inherently unstable. Most of the corporations have in effect poisoned the well of popular support and as the wealthy are shown to be dissolute and evil, both the right and the left are ironically combining against them. I am not really sure that the corporations and wealthy really understand how many people are beginning to hate them and that the fed gov won't be able to protect them or their businesses if things break down.

It might make the Soviet Union breakup look like a walk in the park and NZ is not far enough away to get away from missiles.

The SCOTUS does not have to hear any cases and can remand them, they could also throw out cases due to factors without hearing them.
Also the CT is faulty on many levels.
One, Adam Lanza did not buy the weapons he used to perform his murderous acts.

Two, gun manufacturers are protected from civil suits by federal law.

Three, gun manufacturers never advertise their arms as offensive weapons and are always advertised as defensive weapons.

Four, John Roberts is a disgrace and is the shit cherry on top of the shit sundae of George Bush's ignominious time in office as President.

Next to fall will be the denial that the media is a "propaganda arm" of the Democratic party - watch in horror as all the major networks admit it (NBC, ABC, CBS) right to your face and tell you it's for your own good.

The last to fall will be the denial that getting rid of the President was some coordinated effort between the two - again, they'll tell you it was all for your own good. Bank on it. You're get over it.

289 236 I haven't made plans to flee California, despite what the probable future here looks like, because I don't think there is ultimately any geographical protection long term.

249 It's a point I make occasionally. People complain about self-proclaimed conservatives claiming that a given initiative is "not the hill to die on". But the "not the hill to die on" approach is exactly the one that's being taken with California. It *must* be turned back in California, or it'll spread to the rest of the country (as it's already doing). You can't win by only fighting defensively. You have to go on the offense, as well.

I know some of you all like writing "We're not voting our way out of this". And I'm coming around to that POV. But we're also not moving our way out of this. And we're not lamposts and roping our way out. Not *types* *delete* our way out of it either, imho, no matter how well stocked you are.

The point is to keep yourself in top shape so it becomes a memory thing and not a technique thing. I knew you would pull it together if you just stuck with it long enough to get over the hump.

297 The way to do it is to starve the bureaucrats. We talked to a building inspector/code enforcement guy in Hancock County, TN. He's it. Out here, there's an office full of these guys. But they can't afford them in TN like they can in WA. I also know that there were areas in the North Coast, WA where they told us they had to pass on some of the things Olympia wanted because their county was too poor to afford the bureaucrats to police it.

And de-militarizing local police is another thing we need to do.

More complicated than that. The institutions, like the Church, that should be helping us, are corrupted. You should read what the conservative Catholics are dealing with right now.

If there is one thing I know in this life its guitar players. If they were there once, they can do it again.

My father didn't play for 20 years, and when he got back into it again in his early 60's he was eventually better than he was when he stopped. Things will happen faster and faster.

348 More complicated than that. The institutions, like the Church, that should be helping us, are corrupted. You should read what the conservative Catholics are dealing with right now. Most Protestant churches are as bad. Schools, legal system, media, culture, all infected with the same disease. And it's more than just our country.
Posted by: notsothoreau at November 12, 2019 09:40 PM (JKNZq)


I'm a conservative Catholic, so I'm well aware of the issues within the Church.

And the infection spread precisely because the establishment conservatives were too unwilling to push rightward. The only ones willing to fight were the socons, who were despised not just by the left but by the wishy-washy blue-blood moderate Republicans.

I wonder - what's to stop Congress or the Dem Party if they should just suddenly declare the President is Impeached, the Senate does a secret vote vs a public vote (NR says its just a "bad idea" not a crime or the horror it would be, just kind of a bad idea) to convict, and then both houses decide in private to vote that VP Pence simply can't or shouldn't take over. All this on their own, siting mumbo jumbo goofy semi-legalese language they've been using all along these last three months - and the press just backs them up to the hilt?

Will the people just allow Congress to take over the Executive branch all "for our own good"? I wonder - it just seems to be heading there for some reason - the Press, the Deep State and the Democrats simply can't allow Americans to elect our own President because the executive branch controls who gets thrown in jail- and that is a power they need very badly.

249 It's a point I make occasionally. People complain about self-proclaimed conservatives claiming that a given initiative is "not the hill to die on". But the "not the hill to die on" approach is exactly the one that's being taken with California. It *must* be turned back in California, or it'll spread to the rest of the country (as it's already doing). You can't win by only fighting defensively. You have to go on the offense, as well.

You guys get it.

People can move to TX, WY, or whatever "red" state they want. But the left will always follow.

People move to an out of the way county, but the left will eventually catch up.

I know some of you all like writing "We're not voting our way out of this". And I'm coming around to that POV. But we're also not moving our way out of this. And we're not lamposts and roping our way out. Not *types* *delete* our way out of it either, imho, no matter how well stocked you are.

I'm at a loss how we get out of it. Or even how we get _through_ it."

Excellent comment.

It took the Russian dissidents 70 years and their Eastern European counterparts 50 years to get through it; many didn't live through it. One of the great myths is the oppressive communist states were hated by all. In fact, an actual, fair vote might have yielded a majority in some at certain points. Persuasion, patience and persistence paid off for those who hated their systems.

The monsters in D.C. probably hate the citizenry more than the original communists did theirs, but this country is very fragile in many ways the older models were not. If the American people took a notion to do it, it wouldn't take a hell of a lot of sand being thrown into the gears to grind an oppressive government to a halt. There aren't enough people there yet, as witnessed by a coup in open sight, eyes rolled at murders labeled as suicides, and so forth, and no resulting action. But that time will come, and yes, it will be ugly/uglier and nothing anyone in their right mind would want.

Not an answer to the brilliant points you raised, but probably a reasonable way to look at things.

Bingo. The other big problem is that, even if they WERE "real subpoena's",, Congress has no enforcement powers. (even though a couple Ivy League law professors say different) This is why Eric Holder could laugh off a suboena - the only way for Congress to enforce one is to ask the Attorney General to pretty please enforce it for them, and if he tells them to go piss up a rope, then that's what they have to do.

Fusion Nat Bertrand Writes in Politico That a Previous Article -- Published in Politico Itself! -- is a "Conspiracy Theory" with "No Evidence"

On January 11, 2017 -- one day before the Clapper/Tapper ring would execute the plan to give the fake dossier a "news hook" -- Ken Vogel and David Stern reported for Politico that Ukranian officials had interfered with the US elections -- on Hillary Clinton's side.

Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country.

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.


A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort's resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia. But they were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.

The Ukranian officials colluded with a DNC official named Alexandria Chalupa.

Because the fake dossier was given a "news hook" and reported on by Jake Tapper -- as had been arranged -- the next day, and also, of course, because the media was trying to prove foreign collusion on Trump's behalf and not Hillary's, this story didn't get much attention.

Right-leaning channels keep pointing it out -- and the leftwing media and NeverTrump corporate-funded GOPe clique just keeps ignoring it.

But it's never been disproved or even "credibly alleged" to be in any way false. Certainly Politico has never retracted it.

But the story is inconvenient for the leftwing media/Democratic effort to execute a coup against the duly-elected President, so it has to be Disappeared.

Enter Natasha Bertrand -- or "Fusion Nat" as I like to call her.

She now pens an article, also for Politico, essentially claiming that the earlier Politico article was Fake News and should presumably be retracted. In an article co-written with Andrew Desiderato, she now claims that Politico published, and I do quote, "a conspiracy theory" with "no evidence" to "support" it:

Two top officials who served on President Donald Trump’s National Security Council staff [Fiona Hill and Vindman] testified that they had seen no evidence that the Ukraine government interfered in the 2016 election, contradicting a claim the president has made in public and private.

...

The testimony undercuts a conspiracy theory that has been pushed by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, as he sought to upend the intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia sought to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016.


According to Giuliani, Ukrainian officials conspired with the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to help boost the Democratic nominee's campaign and damage Trump’s candidacy. No evidence has emerged to support that idea.

No evidence except for a well-sourced article published by Politico itself, quoting Ukranian officials.

I mean, other than that -- sure, "no evidence" for this "conspiracy theory."

BuzzFeed decided to join the MinTruth in destroying all record of this wrongthink article and now writes the Politico news article itself out of existence, claiming that this "conspiracy theory" merely comes from a "viral article on FaceBook," rather than a news organization which obviously leans very far to the left.

Media delenda sunt.








Julie Kelly is all over Fusion Nat, who's trying to protect Andrea Chalupa more than ABC was protecting Jeffrey Epstein:

Her affect is Little Miss Dead Serious -- think Wednesday Addams.

The anchors gobble up every word she says.

She is NEVER asked about any of the stories on which she's been busted (Byron York busting her on the El Dorado for example) and she actually keeps reporting her busted facts after they've been busted.

She's the current Thing. I wish Matt Taibbi would brain-rape her into submission.

Anyone watching these three will be just as confused and bewildered as NY Times readers and WAPO digestors when nothing is proven and impeachment falls apart - and then the IG report comes out and the Durham prosecutions.

It will all be "Wut?" from these viewers - the MSM job is to keep its viewers uninformed and sheep like for as long as it takes - until reality hits and then its "d'oh!"

I am moving from a deep blue state to a deep red one.
YOU'D BETTER DO IT NOW.
I am building a house without a mortgage and am closing down all my debts. GOOD CALL
I have moved half my savings into guaranteed income contracts with a triple A financial company. GOOD, ASSUMING THE ECONOMY STILL WORKS.

I have tightened ties with family -- the one I can depend on when times are tough. DEFINITELY.

I own two indestructible Jap shitbox vehicles NO GOOD IF YOU'RE NOT THERE YET. and

I own two 12 ga shot guns-- one with a rifled barrel. YOU ARE WOEFULLY UNDER-PREPARED.

140 Natasha Bertrand, a/k/ar "Fusion Nat," is 26 years old. She graduated in 2014 with a BA in political science from Vassar College. She's also, apparently, best buddies with Fusion GPS founder Glen Simpson.

Keep this in mind when her name comes into play in connection with anything Trump. Fusion Nat had penned untold # of articles about Russia! Russia! Russia! and is propped up by the Progressive Left as one of, if not THE go-to reporter with "insider" sources on anything related to Russia (and now Ukraine) and Trump.

So, just to keep it all straight, the Left has adopted Fusion Nat as their Oracle on the Mount about the misogynistic and racist GOP elected officials and the people that vote for them. Her "anonymous sources" (and let's be honest, probably a vast majority of the text she barfs into the public) are provided to her by private sector handlers that are also the paid "dirty tricksters" of the DNC generally, and Hillary Clinton, specifically.

In fact, if you wanted to map out the media landscape's partisan bias, a good place to start would be to draw a circle around Fusion Nat, and then branch-line to all people and organizations that overtly prop her up and pump her into the Leftist media sensation that she is. She is literally the poster child of the the official DNC strategic collective, and that is precisely why she is heralded as the Best Journalist Ever by all of the usual suspects.

Funny though. Now is the era of journalism where we celebrate those who pass through propaganda to the people. Good work Natasha. You have a very promising career ahead of you with the DNC insiders and all of the manufactured fame and glory that comes with it.

Because in a spy thriller, even if "Mr Big" or "The Organization" skate free in the end, the hero has at least caused enough pain, suffering and death to the other side to make the reader feel that some rough justice has been meted out.

There is no guarantee - in fact, I would argue that the delays, media gaslighting and calls for redaction argue against a guarantee - that anyone involved in this coup will so much as have their hair mussed, let alone face the business end of Bubba in PMITA prison.

His latest is that even though what the President supposedly did does not meet the MODERN definition of bribery, he somehow knows what the Founder's definition was, and that is good enough to impeach Trump.

Funny how they want to use the Founder's 'definition' for bribery, but when it comes to ARMS, that definition means nothing.

193 As the late Alonzo Harris once said, "it's not what you know, it's what you can prove."

Fusion Nat, 26-year old, 4-years out of college, miraculously has formed relationships with sources that consist of the highest level of Obama Administration officials, including Clapper and Brennan. Miraculously, she also regularly contributes to Politico and other top-shelf "news" organizations, is miraculously pushed breathlessly as a top-shelf journalist, is the subject of countless puff pieces in all of the regular corners, and her superior intellect and analytical powers have resulted in her conclusion that Trump, the GOP and their supporters and voters are white racists nationalists who hate gays and women.

Oh, and this is all tied together by a single connection to Hillary Clinton's and DNC's paid hit men at Fusion GPS. Can we PROVE that Fusion Nat's entire career is a manufactured concoction built upon the insider connections carefully maintained by Hillary Clinton?

No. But we all know it. And, they all know we know it.

The dumbing down, the paying of exorbitant prices for energy due to idiotic policies, the evolution of colleges halfway into toxic lunatic asylums, infringement on freedoms [depending on one's life and interests] - these affect a lot of people.


The spectacular crap you hear about affects very few. And unless someone is living a very bad area [of the sort that abound throughout the country, esp. the more populous east], there is nothing urgent or impending or catastrophic to worry about.

He can think whatever he wants, he can hold as many star chamber hearings as he wants, if impeachment gets voted out of the house without so much as a single GOP vote then it's simply a partisan effort to remove a President of the opposition party under trumped up pretenses.

Feel free to disagree. I've watched Mitch McConnell closely, for a very long time. I know his motives and tactics well by now. And he does not like this President, and is willing to damage him wherever he can get away with it.

Yeah, yeah, I know... Judicial nominations, right?

But Mitch views that separately from the rest of the Trump agenda which he hates and obstructs.

Yea, I've got some questions. Wouldn't it be an interesting exercise to do an anal-exam audit of Barista's (and it's insiders') financial statements? With the forcefulness of the pushback here, once wonders which other elected officials (and their family members) profited on this Ukraine deal with Burisma.

Hunter Biden strikes me as a light-weight imbecile, you know, kind of like the type of guy that, say, might get kicked out the military for doing coke. And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Biden is.... shall we say... "intellectually challenged."

Would it surprise literally anyone to learn that the "Biden Family" Burisma graft was just the low-hanging fruit here, uncovered because of the spectacular stupidity and incompetence of anyone with the last name of Biden? That the Democrat machine would let a multi-billion deal in Insider-Obama Land go by without everyone wetting their beak?

-----Yup, Mitch/GOPe want a long slog. Any (R) Senators who bring up embarrassing evidence about Dems will be ignored by the media assiduously, while they bash away at the President's support.

They want this to go on for a LONG time. Even if it costs the majority, McConnell is safe, and it's worth it if it costs Trump the election."

If that happens, Trump's defense team needs to call lots of witnesses with knowledge about cash quid pro quos flowing to certain senators and their wives, including McConnell and Madame Chao.

Feel free to disagree. I've watched Mitch McConnell closely, for a
very long time. I know his motives and tactics well by now. And he does
not like this President, and is willing to damage him wherever he can
get away with it.



Yeah, yeah, I know... Judicial nominations, right?



But Mitch views that separately from the rest of the Trump agenda which he hates and obstructs.

John Roberts may be a cuck traitor but he's unlikely to let a prosecutor set those kind of rules. In fact, it's not clear to me who would (even under Robert's guidance) be in charge of the Senate trial since idiotic democrats are doing this with a split senate/house.

258 McCconnell is competent as a Senate leader. But he's no visionary. He's locked in his circa-1995 political machination mindset ("Comprehensive [________] Legislation"), and he ain't gonna change. Yes, he's doing good work at inserting conservative judges into the judiciary, and he actually showed backbone on stiff arming Bama on Merrick Garland in 2015.

But he's MIA on budget and on every other major issue of the day. He's guilty of being asleep at the wheel for decades while the Dems, lobbyists and interest groups prepped the battlefield for what we're seeing today (wholesale Dem takeover of society, public and private). He's also been particularly bad on the recruitment and electoral strategery front. Basically, Mitch will put the awesome GOP insider power and money behind the campaign of anyone (a) approved by top K-Street players, and (b) that swears allegiance to Mcconnell.

And, as a result, the McConnell GOP incumbent insiders have, for the most part, enjoyed re-election after re-election, so they're all good.

262 In predicting news, there are two ways to play it, one is to argue the extremes which happen at a low rate of success but when the long shot prediction comes in, everyone forgets the missed predictions.

The other way is to play the safe boring prediction which has a high success rate but it is so obvious that most people promptly forget that they thought anything different.

I tend to go with the boring safe predictions--there will be some sort of impeachment vote in the House, the FISA report comes out and names a few big names, Durham's investigation widens a bit and people start getting their subpoenas for New Years, and Trump rages on Twitter. The senators face the awful polling that impeachment is getting and pick the easy way out of being chicken and failing to vote to convict.

Media and Dems in electorate have the sadz because Orangemanbad and how could it fail. The Republicans start their usual circular firing squad, the Never Trumpers continue to plumb the depths of insanity by repeating it over and over again that Orangeman is in effect really bad. Fox continues to suck up ratings as the best of the worst, the economy stays in the safe zone, trade deals put on hold, some sort of Brexit occurs.

And then we get to the election--too early to tell but my gut believes that during the whole impeachment thingie, that if Trump's approval ratings will begin to rise which is what happened with Clinton in 97-98. If that happens, he wins impeachment and the 2020 election.

I believe this because this impeachment is boring, process of the NSC is boring, most of their foreign policy arguments are boring, so people are tuning out. People were truly shocked in Nixon's Watergate hearings, People were titillated with Bill Clinton's sex life, People are bored about the crap with Trump.

The whole political theatre gag with officers in uniforms etc. reads like something out of an old JAG episode except with fat out of shape political commisars disguised in uniform. The mysterious, widely reported, whistleblower is outed as a smart ass millenial kid, the widely disliked John Bolton, etc. It is trite, it is boring, and since it involves a country that most Americans could not find on a map and does not involve U.S. service members being shot, no one cares except for partisans. Boring tv=bad politics. Even the Republican stunts in the House just seem tired and ridiculous as if everyone is going through the motions. For that reason, and the fact that the Senate is a chamber of cowards and corrupts, impeachment goes there to die.

An army of Confederate monuments dots Virginia's landscape but some of those statues could soon start coming down after Election Day gave Democrats control of the General Assembly for the first time in decades.

Members of the new legislative majority say they plan to revive proposals to make it easier to remove the public displays honoring Civil War soldiers and generals in a state that was home to two Confederate capitals. Previous attempts to do so were quickly dispatched in the Republican-controlled General Assembly, in votes largely along party lines.

Nasty Democrat Blob Mazie Hirono: You Must Believe in the Cult of Global Warming Like It's a Religion, Not a Science

Well, she's right about what it is.

Her advice that you should join this admitted cult is wrong, of course.

During her speech, Hirono encouraged Americans to leave their "comfort zone," and protest for left-wing issues. She also said that Americans should view climate change as more of a religion than a science.

...

"Get people to -- out to vote so that we can have people here who truly are committed to human rights and environmental rights, climate change, believe in climate change as though it’s a religion and not a science, and all the things that remains to be done and there’s a lot," She said.

80 36, If you are serious in your comments, I suggest reading an old sci-fi book, Alas Babylon for some pointers. Otherwise, read the Backwoods Home Guide, etc. If you are citified, get the hell out of there as cities will probably be the front lines--remember food does not come from the supermarket--no delivery trucks, no food. And the UN ain't going to drop some as they did in Yugoslavia.

I would also suggest starting to read books on agriculture, mechanics, etc. In a bad situation, untrained and unskilled labor is worth about zero.

If you really are curious, read the account of the guy who survived in Yugoslavia and there is another primer on how to survive economic crashes written by a guy with experience on such issues in Argentina.

My personal take is that if we hit an iceberg, most people are not going to make it to the lifeboats in time.

Some similarities may exist, but this time it's Richard. Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comments reported by a blue-check mark on Twitter. Burr was "concerned" for those Senators that needed to campaign in "IA or NH", while being forced to attend the trial.

My thought: is this the first step for the 33 Senators up for election to be given a "valid" reason to avoid casting a vote? Aren't 2/3 of those Republicans?

My guess is that it's support for the idea that Hugh Hewitt wrote about yesterday, which is that if it's sent to the Senate, McConnell could easily table it with a couple of maneuvers and never hold a trial, never hold a vote. Just say "let it be decided by the election."

There's nothing to force the Senate to hold a trial. They can ignore the whole thing if they want to.

It is particularly interesting how, like many religions in history (and some in the present such as Mo worship), they try to destroy the unbelievers. It seems that "climate change denial" can be a job ending act for not only real scientists but others from almost every level of education, politics, and even business. This scrunt's statement is equivalent to a priest saying "You have to think of Catholicism as a religion, not a science." Well, duh.

127 And in every religion there is the problem of what to do with the heretics. The "deniers". Mazie, any thoughts on that?

I don't see Presbyterians "dealing with heretics" outside the idea of church discipline and expulsion from the assembly.

If the Church of Climate were to do same, it would be a good thing - basically you are asked to not associate with them.

But the bigger issue of Climate as a Religion takes lead. In the Abrahamic faiths, obedience to God is a primary feature. Christianity and Islam have an eschatology that is of an un-earthly realm. Is there an analog within the Church of Climate?

Outside of Islam, Judaism and Catholicism where the faith is intermingled with a theocratic government/culture, aren't most religions focused on self-realization and self-improvement?

Maybe this idiot is thinking of the American Religion (Free-will Christianity) or pantheism or Wiccan which is just a vanity religion.

So Gaia worship may be in mind here. But the same way charlatans have hijacked religions throughout the millennia to anoint themselves as powerful, manipulative highly compensated and privileged "priests" (complete with temple prostitutes), they are also creating a system of coercion/compulsion that enslaves the masses to enrich the priesthood.

The point being, if a person is forced at gunpoint to participate in a religion, it ain't a religion, it is a mystic government that claims to be able to make laws and divine judgments based on exclusive dreams and angels.

So much for "separation of Church and State" that the Bradbury Baptists were promised by Jefferson when the Baptists were worried that the US would incorporate its own State Religion and demand fealty to it.

With the election less than a year away, the GOP simply has to keep repeating "Let the people decide! Let the voters choose!"

The Dems will have zero response, since doing that will basically be telling the voters they need to hold the House to go pound sand.

On the video game front, the game "This War of Mine" is an interesting look at trying to survive in scarcity conditions. In this case, your characters are trapped in a modern city that's under siege. Daytime is when all (but one or two who are sleeping) is when your characters build items, or cook food. Nighttime is when one of your sleepers stands watch for burglers, while the other sleeper goes out to scavenge.
And then just as you think that your survivors are settled in, winter hits, the temperature drops, and parts of the city become inaccessible due to snowfall.

Any articles of impeachment that are voted for in the House that get zero GOP votes are ipso facto partisan and have no merit.



Therefore, McTurtle should treat them with zero credulity and promptly file them in the legislative wastebasket.

Or
if they want to give an air of going through the motions, hand them
over to Lindsey in Judiciary to conduct inquiries there, use these
hearings to extract blood, hold a vote to pass the articles out of
Judiciary, in sort of an inversion, if there are enough votes to find a
Senate trial necessary it passes if not it gets waste basketed.

But being this is the GOP we are talking about, nothing of the sort will happen.

And more than likely McTrutle will treat the Impeachment articles with credulity and we get a wasteful trial that allows the Donks and media to continue their drumbeat and possibly suck GOP Reps and Senators into the maw of this madness where anything is possible.

Rich Lowry of all people said that McConnell could send a letter to the House outlining their requirements for an impeachment in the House to be kosher and tell them that if they deviate from it, the whole matter is null and void.

He probably won't, but it's better to pop their balloon as early as possible to make them look like the ineffectual turds that they are.

My wife and I have that same discussion, and she takes the same position as you.

I view modern Warmism as a neo-pagan religious belief. It's also a Hellfire and Brimstone Religion for people who tell themselves they're too smart to fall for a hellfire and brimstone religion.

185 121, There is an old song, a country boy can survive. But cities are too close to the edge of the cliff if food supplies are interrupted. Think New Orleans in Katrina.

Suburbs, depending on where you are, at least some would probably resemble armed camps similar to Katrina and most of them did okay in the aftermath aside from flooding.

Suburbs and rural areas often have communities outside of government, cities are mainly composed of groups that dislike each other and the government divides and conquers to keep power and graft flowing. Organic communities always do better than places where people are individualistic transients.

Read the Atlantic story about the package porch stealer in San Fran. Organic social media is beginning to really have an impact on the local level without the social guardians of the fading local newspapers.

My guess is that it's support for the idea that Hugh Hewitt wrote about yesterday, which is that if it's sent to the Senate, McConnell could easily table it with a couple of maneuvers and never hold a trial, never hold a vote. Just say "let it be decided by the election."

There's nothing to force the Senate to hold a trial. They can ignore the whole thing if they want to.
Posted by: Tom Servo

Rich Lowry of all people said that McConnell could send a letter to the House outlining their requirements for an impeachment in the House to be kosher and tell them that if they deviate from it, the whole matter is null and void.

He probably won't, but it's better to pop their balloon as early as possible to make them look like the ineffectual turds that they are.

268 I've been following Dr. Patrick Moore, former co-founder of Greenpeace and author of Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout.

He's been talking a lot about how the increase in CO2 in the last 100 years is greening the planet in a way we've never seen before.

He also talks about how the % of CO2 in the atmo w was so LOW 18K years ago during the last major glaciation of the ice age we are currently in the middle of. In fact, the % was so low (180 ppm) that it was creeping down to the point (about 150 parts per million) where vegetation would start dying en masse, which of course would be the end of life on this planet.

Here is a good short synopsis of his longer talk that is also linked at this site:

http://sep.stanford.edu/sep/jon/climate.html

I don't agree with him that humans are to blame for the increase in CO2, since CO2 percentage actually lags temperature by 800 years or so, rather than the other way around. I also think that Earth's temp has 99 percent to do with the Milankovitch Cycles (normal changes in the Earth's orbit around the Sun as well as changes in the Earth's axial tilt) and shit to do with CO2 percentage.

Anyway, he's great.

290 We lose CO

-
CO is lost.

Upon seeing this story, you might be tempted to think it was about San Francisco, but it actually takes place in Denver, Colorado. Jawaid Bazyar is the owner of a communications company named FORETHOUGHT.net. His building is adjacent to an alley where groups of homeless people, prostitutes and drug addicts hang out. Recently, the problem has spiraled out of control and people have been urinating and defecating in the alley, along with leaving discarded hypodermic needles on the ground.

Despite having complained to the police repeatedly, nothing seemed to change and Bazyar grew distraught at the prospect of his employees having to clean up the potentially hazardous waste. The city of Denver responded by issuing him a citation and fining him for not keeping the property clean. (CBS Denver)

The internet has really damaged Scientology. Back in the old days they used real cutthroat tactics to silence critics and largely got away with it. Things like breaking and entering, framing critics with phony crimes, and threatening them and their families.

331 324, I doubt it. McConnell is up in 2020 along with some of his other buddies. Trump goes down, I doubt that McConnell can survive either. I doubt Dem senators in Red states want much to do with it either for similar reasons. Doug Jones want to seal his loss? and so forth and those gains in AZ or maybe even CO, fuhgettaboutit. Upset pissed off voters are more likely to swing the election than those getting what they wanted (see 2010),

Here is the thing, most of the folks in DC just are not that smart except about how to grub money and sell their influence. What has propped them up is the corrupt media and oligarchs funding them and their progeny. Anything that damages their personal mealticket is something they dislike by nature.

For the most part, Congress has more or less defaulted on every important decision for decades--deficit (never heard of it), immigration (punt), wars and peace (leave it up to the president but be sure to be loud in criticism). Why break a perfect record of incompetence and bloviating now?

What this is over is that McConnell and his Senate buddies want to continue to roger the Republic and want Trump to layoff killing off their happy hunting grounds and those of their patrons. They are terrified that the people will tear them apart from what they have done lest it be revealed.

Trump is like Samson, more or less he could kick over the temple and bring in down on their heads. So we get this endless talk talk talk and ridiculous impeachment processes.

Mark Sanford, Alleged Challenger to Trump, Suspends Hypothetical Campaign In Order to Spend More Time With His Argentinian Side-Piece

Ahhh, muy calliente.

He says his failure is due to Democrats' success in launching an impeachment hearing.

What? Democrats try to impeach the sitting impeachment, and he says that prevents him from mounting a challenge to that president?

Whatever.

Mark Sanford dropped his challenge to President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, saying the focus on impeachment has made it impossible for his campaign to gain traction.

"You've got to be a realist," Sanford said outside the New Hampshire statehouse. "What I did not anticipate is an impeachment."

Various corporate-sponsored fake conservatives are weeping into their fake captains' hats.

And the Democrats said: "Yeah, yeah. That's too much work. We're just going to promise and enact the most lunatic laws possible. Destroying the country stuff. Stuff nobody in their right minds would ever vote for. Nobody at all."


The Republicans are on their way to winning the bet, which is $1.00.

I'm not sure of the status of Mark and his Argentine firecracker. IIRC, he was going to marry her, but his kids laid down the law and said they'd never talk to him again if'n he married her.

A few months ago, he tried to speak at some campaign event (Miss Lindsey, I think, or something Miss Lindsey was at). The crowd broke out in a "Take a hike, take a hike!" chant.

180 "I have great respect for @MarkSanford - It's a shame that the GOP has rallied against fiscally conservative voices."

Question: When it came to the Porkbusters and the TEA Party movements, where were these people?

Question #2: When it came to Trump, where were these people? Specifically, what were they doing to try and keep the deficits down, to control spending? Did they try to work out at least some kind of deal? Or did they throw the train in reverse and back out of that station, just because Trump is putting the Bully in the Bully Pulpit?

Question #3: With the roaring economy, what are the numbers for current tax intake? Seems like, even with Trump-Cuts (R), we may be looking at a big windfall simply by way of volume. But you don't hear ANYTHING from what I can tell, 9/10ths because the MSM is shying away from economy reporting. If we do have record increases to go with a record economy, it just shows that, like trying to f*** yourself out of having AIDS, you can't spend your way out of debt.

That's because they never get elected. About 75% of government spending is military and entitlements. Another 5% or so interest on the debt. The rest is discretionary.

Nobody ever does squat about entitlements because the truth is nobody wants theirs cut. And military spending only ratchets one way too.

Until we cut entitlements and military spending I'm not getting worked up over spending any longer. We'll either get serious about it or wait for the crash.

All the fed has to do is create $50T of new "Liquidity" tomorrow morning and Boop! No more icky Debt!! That's how the system "works".

I wish I could say I was exaggerating, but if you work really hard to figure it all out and start looking underneath the covers, you find out that it's all been smoke and mirrors for a long time. Money is like that spoon in the first Matrix - the key to understanding is, there is no spoon. All that matters is your belief in it.

263 Didn't Sanford's disappearance cause the SC state police to go looking for him on the Trail, including helicopter searches, etc? It cost the state tens of thousands of dollars of overtime in searches , and then he ended up showing back up, mealy mouthed the story of not telling people and then finally it came out he was in

That whole episode made me feel better about the complete lack of monitoring of a citizen's international travel. So they collect and scan passports, have names on manifests, do checks against a no-fly list, but a governor of a State flees the country and no one knows where he is.

Remove line feed. It's considerably worse, and the above -$13T figure, adds some more to offset it somehow.

This isn't the same as money based on what an economy is estimated to have value. Its just scraped out of the rear end of bankers and investors, who do things like literally sell properties which are worthless or in debt then write down that this sold for actual dollars. Then they move it around more between each other, each time getting money.

Its almost all bullshit, its a game of musical chairs and when the music stops, there will be chairs for all the big wigs and fat cats and nothing for the rest of us.

I doubt anyone really believes it. And all governments do this. It's one of the problems. Govts are supposed to set the rules, be the referees for the financial markets. But they are also big players in those same markets (borrowing).

I have been paying off my mortgage faster. One of my brothers says that seems pointless; I should have cash in my hands instead. But I like the idea of having no debt so the only bills I have to worry about are utilities and property taxes, the latter of which I can vote against raising.

I am a bit nervous that assets like my house, HSA, and such will be used against me or confiscated by a left-leaning government. Or negative interest rates on Roth accounts. Or some such awful thing.

In Hellmouth Los Angeles, Homeless Maniac Throws Bucket Full of His Hot Diarrhea On To Random Tourist

Welcome to your Democrat future.

Heidi Van Tassel was parked in Hollywood after having a pleasant evening out with friends at an authentic Thai restaurant. Suddenly a man randomly pulled her out of the car, dragged her out to the middle of the street, and dumped a bucket of feces on her head, Van Tassel said and public records confirm.


"It was diarrhea. Hot liquid. I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes," Van Tassel said. "Paramedics who came to treat me said there was so much of it on me, that it looked like the man was saving it up for a month."

Van Tassel was rushed to Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital after the grotesque attack, where she was tested for infectious diseases caused by contact with feces. She'll need to be retested every three months.

I sure hope he's an illegal alien. That way, he can avoid all punishment.

Oh wait, he did: He's already back out on the street, saving up his diarrhea for another disgusting biohazard attack.

Meanwhile, San Francisco says "Hey, don't leave us out of this wonderful Diarrhea Nightmare!" They're vowing to make it legal to use the streets as open sewers.

San Francisco's pee problem could soon get worse.

Chesa Boudin, the urine-and-feces-plagued city’s incoming district attorney, pledged during the campaign not to prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes if he was elected. Boudin declared victory Saturday night after results showed him winning a plurality of votes in the DA race.

"We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted," Boudin vowed in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign.

And now people are attacking homeless encampments in San Francisco with... arrows.


The victims were not identified in reports but lived in an encampment around the area of Richmond. Both men were hit in the abdomen, and one was also struck in the leg, the Mercury News reported. A homeless woman was also targeted, but the assailant reportedly missed.


The report said the two were taken to a nearby hospital and underwent surgery. They are awake and recovering "well," police said.

Because the state won't deal with the homeless problem, there is now a bow-and-arrow-armed vigilante attacking camps.

Hey guys -- The Road Warrior was meant to be a dystopian fable, not an instruction manual.

San Francisco is about to report that its homeless population has risen 17%, but that's a lie. They changed the definition of "homeless" to make their Homeless City look better. The actual figure, using the real definition they used to use, is a 30% rise.

72 Because the state won't deal with the homeless problem, there is now a bow-and-arrow-armed vigilante attacking camps.

More likely, one of the other homeless.

73 Well you can blame Reagan all you want... but I think he's dead now and its been quite a while since he's been anywhere near power, then again these same people give Obama credit on the economy that they also say is the worst ever because people are getting jobs and wage increases and stuff.

Those homeless rate increases don't have much to do with mental hospitals in the 80s.
Posted by: Reality Man at November 12, 2019 04:17 PM (//Byp)


I say yet again: it had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with Reagan. Mental hospitals closed because of the 1975 Supreme Court decision in O'Connor v. Donaldson, which made it difficult to institutionalize nutjobs against their will.

Mental hospitals had no more choice in turning nuts loose than cops do in reading Miranda rights, and for exactly the same reason - a Supreme Court ruling.

If you want to blame someone apart from the Supremes, blame Ken Kesey and David Rosenhan, a psych prof at Stanford, for starting that "care in the community" horseshit.

As said previously, what will happen is that Schiff will cut anyone off that strays from his pre-planned script, any comments he believes are non-germaine will be stricken from the record, then the Donks will do what they do best, cause a scene, get their media allies to amplify their narratives and then probably file ethics complaints against GOP congressmen.

95 Ace, you're missing the big news here.

San Francisco just elected a new District Attorney - - the adopted son of Bill Ayers, and the biological son of two Weather Underground terrorist convicted of murder!

Yes, the voters knew full well his backstory, And they elected him anyway!

This new D.A., Chesa Boudin, is an open communist, and just announced that he will NOT PROSECUTE any crimes that in his opinion "criminalize poverty." Thus, starting today, the following activities are all totally legal in SF:

-- Pooping in public
-- Peeing in public
-- Fare-jumping and not paying fares on any public transit
-- Shoplifting food or personal care items
-- Panhandling
-- Aggressive panhandling
-- Sleeping anywhere and everywhere you want on public property, streets, parks, yards, sidewalks, etc.
-- ...and presumably dumping buckets os diarrhea on passersby.
-- etc. etc. etc.

Seriously, within a year or two San Francisco will be a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

And the voters willingly and consciously asked for it!

We have, and I don't mean to be a bore about it, but I get tired of hearing that leftist agitprop claptrap about Reagan. This was a policy the Reds campaigned for, and the Supremes ultimately bought it.

Now that the policy is in place, the Reds are trying to lay off the blame for it onto Reagan, among others. They need to own it; it was their doing.

I'm glad you posted that - it's amazing, I looked at the Wiki page and they have erased the entire section on how it happened, which used to explain how Pat Brown and the Cal Legislature passed a law phasing out the mental institutions in favor of "Community Care" before Reagan took office. And this was over a decade before the 1975 SCOTUS decision. (The 1975 Decision simply made the existing California policy national)

If you're willing to pay, you can still find some archived articles written in the 90's from the WaPo and the NYT, back when they still did actual journalism, that detail what actually happened. Today, all you can find in the public domain about it is myth and mystery, and no one wants to talk about how it actually happened.

The idea that Reagan was the cause of it was always a lie, part of the "homeless" smear that Dems tried to run in the 80's.

It's now basically legal to just rob and steal anything you want, as long as it's valued under $950. if you get caught, you get a TICKET, similar to a parking ticket, and you "have to" pay a fine -- unless you plead poverty, in which case you don't have to pay the fine. Thus, the punishment for getting caught is NOTHING.

As a result, every kind of criminal is running around free now and major crimes are of course going up as well.

With Chesa Boudin in charge, it's only going to get 100x worse.

I have one of those thingies you can break your car window with if you run off the road into water. It also has a sharp end to cut through seat belts.

270 Me and everybody else in Texas are actually getting a big boost out of California's homeless policies; we need to publicize as much as we can "hey, you know being homeless hear sucks, but if you get to San Fran you can live near the ocean, and they'll give you free food and all the drugs you want and the police promise to never hassle you at all!!!" We need to be giving every one we could find $100 cash and a bus ticket to either San Fran or LA. We should do that with illegals too, especially the gang bangers.

Seriously. I'd like to know the end game of this kind of mentality.

What benefit does this give residents?

Posted by: Sponge at November 12, 2019 04:30 PM (Zz0t1)


It does not lead anywhere, for now. The radicals know that 99.999 percent of taxpaying citizens will not begin taking a dump and urinating in public, nor will they start shoplifting stuff that totals under $950 per store visit. The radicals are kowtowing to the lowlifes for unknown reasons, and that won't change until they are subjected to pressure that threatens their elected positions.

The fastest (only?) way to stop the increasing madness is for everyone in California to start shoplifting and using the streets as their toilets.
