The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"So the MSM is all butthurt because Trump called fake news the enemy of the people. So they all wrote a bunch of editorials complaining about it. But last weekend during the protests and counterprotests, there were a number of incidents where antifa goons physically attacked reporters and damaged video equipment carried by the cameramen. I saw the video footage, but I did not see a story about this. Did CNN complain that their reporters were roughed up by antifa? I did not see the wall-to-wall coverage there would have been if any one of the 23 white supremacists had so much as given a reporter a dirty look. So, to recap this week's MSM follies, Trump hurt their feelings and it's a national crisis. But then reporters are physically intimidated and assaulted by antifa thugs, and it's a big nothingburger? You know, if I were a progressive reporter whose job it is to cover these clowns, I'd be rethinking that whole 'there are no enemies on the Left' thing they've been going with."




CNN is doubling down on stupid with the typical prog "it's OK when we do it" argument to justify who antifa goons who assaulted police and journalists over the weekend. Meanwhile, the 27 white supremacists who showed up for the demonstration, who are apparently threatening to tear apart the national fabric, according to CNN and the SPLC, stood around like potted plants. Some threat. By the way, I'll bet that 4 or 5 of them were either FBI informants or undercover FBI agents.

20 A Saga Continues:

In a Chinese restaurant in Maryland....

Fu Manchu sits at a table, a stack of applications in front of him. "Dishwasher? See the manager. This table is for dirt-dishers. Next."

A large man wearing a cowboy hat steps up. "Name?"

"Taggert."

"Any experience?"

"Well, I once worked for Headly Lamarr."

Fu Manchu gestures and two large Mongolians grab Taggert and drag him away. "Losers need not apply. Next."

A teenager steps up. "Name?"

"Brad."

"Any experience?"

"I'm a student intern at CNN and have been running The Situation Room since Mr. Blitzer went crazy."

"Relevant experience. Have you ever dished the dirt on someone?"

"Well, yeah. I mean, Caitlin who works with me just gossips all the time and some of it is pretty funny so I repeat it. I don't know if its true, but if its funny and bad, what's the harm?"

"You're hired. You'll need a little training in callous disregard for truth though. See the hostess for the training materials."

*******************

"Here is the latest on foreign policy. Mexico is negotiating on trade, China wants to talk about those tariffs - they may be rethinking a trade war at this point, and Kim Jong-Un called to thank you for the Estes rocket set, said he never had one when he was a kid."

"I figured he would. I mean with the goofy hair you could tell he was just a big kid who fell into the wrong crowd - doing a little vandalism, some shoplifting, assassinations - he just needed an outlet for all of that energy."

GorillaPundit looks at Trump and deadpans "Goofy hair...yes sir, that is it. Is there anything else?"

"No, just turn the tv on and put it to the Gorilla Channel. I love watching those apes smack each other around."

"Sir, there is no Gorilla Channel."

"Sure there is - the other night they had this one on - Maddow was its name - and boy was she really bringing the smackdown! That ape can swing bigly!"

"Oh right - MSNBC it is."

The TV is turned on and GorillaPundit leaves the office. Trump leans towards the TV and watches in anticipation.

"Governor Cuomo, could you repeat that?"

"America is not great and has never been great! Slavery, Jim Crow, abuse of women, internments, war, football, reality shows! America is a real sh*thole!"

"But you're a governor of an important state and want to be president! Why would you want to be president of a sh*thole?"

"Because as governor of New York I am a sh*theel and you need one to run a sh*thole!"

"Oh this is going to be good," Trump whispers. "Just need the next ape to come in and we'll see them fight!"

"Before we get deeper into Gov. Cuomo's campaign theme of Cuomo 2020: See Clear to a Sh*theel for a Sh*thole we have further allegations against President Trump...."

Trump pulls back. "Where's the fight? I want to see some gorilla fight this gorilla. This blows. I wonder what's on the Crazy Channel?"

He turns to CNN.

"Hi! I'm Caitlin and Mr. Blitzer says that he's cheese and stands alone so #MeToo can't get him! Brad the dork isn't here, he's trying to get a paying job so he can get that crappy Lumina his grandma gave him fixed and he better! He stills owes me for taking me to that Comic Con and insisting I dress up as this anime whatever character Sailor Moon! I mean, that's like so 1990's and if that wasn't enough some creep dressed like a furry bear tried to perv on me, kept saying "jub-jub-jub"! Brad said it was a real Ewok, I still kicked its *ss!"

Trump snaps his fingers "Of course! That little guy that I had strapped to the front of the RV back during the campaign! He'll spice up the Gorilla Channel, get him to fight Cuomo and maybe Maddow - maybe not until he's had a little training - she's tough! Hey, one of you guys get Bigly the elephant, I gotta go find this guy!"

Thanks for the insight into your thoughts, CBD. It made me curious enough to look him up. His life seems to have spanned the eras of Realism to Post-Impressionism, which shows in his work. I'm seeing styles reminiscent of Courbet, the Barbizons, Manet, and Morisot. It appears he taught Monet en-plein-aire. He provides an interesting link between 19th century movements.

Oh...

Shrimp boats is a-comin'
Their sails are in sight
Shrimp boats is a-comin'
There's dancin' tonight
Why don't 'cha hurry hurry hurry home
Why don't 'cha hurry hurry hurry home
Look here! The shrimp boats is a-comin'
There's dancin' tonight
(Shrimp boats is a-comin', there's dancin' tonight)

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(SLOWLY):
They go to sea with the evenin' tide
And the women folk wave their good-bye
(There they go... There they go)
While the Louisiana moon floats on high
And they wait for the day when they can cry...

(CHORUS)

(SLOWLY):
Happy the days while they're mending the nets
'Til once more they ride out to sea
(There they go... There they go)
Then how lonely the nights will be
'Til that wonderful day when they sing...

(CHORUS)

Saw something cool in the Home Depot parking lot this morning. A hawk swooped down into one of the decorative trees and nailed a dove. Big commotion in the tree, then the dove falls about 8 feet to the ground. The hawk just pulls in his wings and drops onto the dove with both talons. Big cloud of feathers.

This is about 20 feet in front of me.

Then, with the dove still twitching under his feet, the hawk looks over at me all mad dogging, like "whadda youse lookin' at, jibroni?"

Because the Supreme Court and the Congress allow it, by doing nothing about it. Either of them could stop it if they wanted to, I'm hoping that with Gorsuch on the Court instead of Kennedy, this might happen.

Congress could also stop this easily, but Congress is worthless no matter who's running it.

Was grey-haired old Patch Eye
And the stories that he'd tell me about

Watched the ships go by

He'd talk about his missing eye
He would talk about his wooden leg
But he'd never talk about the old tattoo
On his right arm that said 'Meg'

My cats are smart enough, they hear a whistle that sounds remotely like a hawk or owl or whatever, and they disappear in a flash. Not emerging again until they believe the coast is clear.

249 at a falconry demonstration, one of the trainers had a large hawk he'd trained, I think it was a red tail. He demonstrated for the crowd how they trained the hawks, by throwing out some good size piece of meat with a string on it. He let the hawk pounce on it, and it was amusing/almost scary to see how, when he walked up to get it, that hawk stuck it's wings up and made as fierce and big a display as it could, it wasn't gonna let loose of its raw meat without a fight.

Many years ago, I was walking to work, and heard a bunch of birds making a terrible racket in a tree. I looked around a bit, and saw some sort of hawk (or some other bird of prey) perched in the middle of the tree, and the squawking birds arrayed around it.

More recently, on a trip to the coast, we got to watch some larger bird of prey get chased off by a flock of smaller birds. That was pretty entertaining.

Not sure what he is after unless it's the little tweety birds that come to the feeders. Never seen him try and grab one and they eat with him sitting there.

If it's a red tailed hawk, he's probably waiting on a squirrel or rabbit to visit under the feeder. They have to be real hungry to go after birds.

344 There was a story at that exhibit about Turner as an artist that was hilarious - one of the first real "mic drop" moments that I have heard of. Turner always fought with critics, and was not a pleasant man to know personally. (not many artists are) He rather reveled in being disliked by most everyone in the official society of his day. So, there was a big once a year national art competition, with a big reward, that anyone who thought they could paint would compete in. The artists were to put their work on display for 2 weeks, at the end they were allowed one day for light touch up and corrections to their work, and at the end of that day was the judging.

So Turner went to the public exhibition part and put up a canvas with his name on it that just had a few paint strokes across it and a suggestion for a painting sketched out in charcoal lines - the thing an artist would have just laying around his studio. He put that in as his entry, and everyone scoffed at it and said he had clearly gone mad.

On the last day, when touch ups and corrections were allowed, he walked in with his box of paints and brushes and sat down in front of the canvas, saying nothing. He started to work, and quickly gathered a crowd as his hands flew across the canvas, arranging scenes, mixing his colors. He worked with complete focus for 8 straight hours, never going back, painting furiously, but as if he was just copying the picture from the image he already had in his head. After 8 hours, he suddenly stopped completely, looked hard at the painting for a moment, and then simply dropped his brush, stood up, and walked away, saying nothing.

Of course the painting was absolutely brilliant, and of course it won the grand prize at the judging that night.

I don't know how you Northerners do it. One year when we were in Massachusetts in August, it was over 100 degrees for a few days. One of those days, we went to the beach and I thought, okay, it's finally hot enough that I can actually go into the water here.

I made it as far as my knees. I couldn't feel my toes anymore.

388 Turner's late work was often blamed on his eyesight, but the interesting thing about that is that his late works anticipated everything the Impressionists in Paris supposedly developed, 20 years before any of them thought of it. In art history, studying the transition of Turner's early works to his late is the story of the move from late 18th century landscape painting, through the violent naturalism of the early 19th century, and into the Impressionist movement of the late 19th.

There's a story about a dissolute 18th-century English duke known for his lechery. It was rumored that he took a daily bath in milk to keep his scrofula-infested skin clean.

The duke was also known as a cheapskate, and the rumor went on that, after his bath, the duke had the milk taken away and resold to the poor.

It caused quite a drop in the consumption of milk in London for a while.

451 Marengo has recently produced a book that claims Humanae Vitae was devoid of "any tone of doctrinal and disciplinary rigor" and instead focused on "the perspective of accompanying couples, who are invited to progressively adhere to the fullness of the Christian form of their mutual love," an interpretation that dovetails with Pope Francis' agenda of making moral absolutes into "ideals" which Christians are not expected nor required to fulfill.

The Morning Report 8/17/18

notthatgreat.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is here so let's get to it. First up, I don't want to let Andrew Cuomo's disgusting remarks slide both for their own sake and more broadly what they reveal not only about him but about the Democrat-Leftists in this country as they are today.

At some campaign event, in an attempt to take a swipe at the President and his signature "Make America Great Again," the guy spouts off something to the effect of America was never great to begin with. Even the audience, which was no doubt a friendly one (and in New York, if I'm not mistaken) let out an audible groan. Meh, that was probably more of a "shut up idiot, you're giving them fodder!" rather than being offended by the remark, as any normal, right thinking American would be.

The question is, what's worse; that Cuomo said this because he believes it or because he thinks it's politically expedient to do so? Jeez, let that sink in for a moment. It's good politics for the politically ambitious in one party to actually run down the country they live in, were raised in, emigrated to (legally or otherwise) and seek to run. Groucho said he wouldn't want to be in a club that would actually have him as a member, so you'd think Andrew et al would take the advice of that Marx and not the other one.

In my mind, it used to be that the Democrats faked love of country and generally masked whatever anti-American ideology they might have had in order to fool people into voting for them, while the GOP-e was content to profit off of their Socialist scheme to destroy the nation. Now, it's obvious that all pretense has been abandoned and the Democrats are now openly socialist and anti-American. And the GOP-e are the new old Democrats, still content to loot the nation to line their pockets while pretending to be pro-American and pro-Constitution. They should all rot in Hell, frankly.

And on a more tactical level, as we head into the final stretch towards the midterms, there are a lot of mixed signals that have me worried and fairly optimistic at the same time. Yes, the economy is going like gangbusters, judicial nominees are being confirmed and even as Cuck Schemer attempts to derail Brett Kavanaugh yet again with a frivolous lawsuit to dumpster dive in his trash, more people than ever want him confirmed, whatever reputation the media may have had has all but been wiped out, and the President is winning the messaging war on everything from immigration to terrorism to trade and so much more. That said, the ginning up of blind rage and hatred has been at maximum level for the past 18 months. And the primaries have shown a record turnout for Dem voters in their races while GOP numbers are rather flat. Will anti-Trump rage, real or ginned up, be enough to really capture one or both Houses of Congress despite all the good things and despite the loyalty of a strong and growing pro-Trump base? The world wonders...

Going around the horn in politics, Congressional approval is in the shitter, Kirsten Jello-Brains shared the stage with a rioting Ferguson Marxist, Bernie Sanders ducks a question about Keith Ellison's abuse accusations, black female Dem uses racial slur against Asian opponent in Michigan and Keith "X" heir-apparent, accused perjurer Ilhan Omar wants terror convicts to be in good hands with Allah-State.

In First Amendment and Fake News, the Silicon Valley Silencers want you silenced, PDT calls out the mass editorial page newspaper collusion manifesto, and the 17% approval rated Congress shows why they are so loathed. Moving down an amendment, Louisiana strikes back at big banks that went big for Camera Hogg and the DoJ seeks to clarify the situation with Cody Wilson with a number of states attorneys general who are not happy with that ruling.

On the terrorism front, two American idiots who wanted to show the world that the evil was just a figment of the imagination got figment to death by ISIS in Afghanistan, an ex-US military ISIS enthusiast and convert to the religion of peace gets 15 years for plotting to blow up a San Francisco pier, and why the Texas juvie-jihadi case means states need terrorism laws.

Internationally, our wonderful Euro-peon allies are scheming with the Turks and Iraqis (huh?!) to skirt our Iran sanctions, Iran's big cheese says he, get this, regrets the Obama nuke deal, and Sec Def Mattis warns about Chi-Com and Russky influence in South America, even as we sanction those two for attempting to violate our sanctions on the NorKs.

Domestically, Fauxcahontas wants to do for the entire private sector what Google, Facebook and Twitter are doing for the internet - communize the whole thing and take it over. Elon Musk's entire enterprise might be reviewed by the SEC (might be?!), Leftists have access to the Census Bureau by some backdoor bullshit, Fake Flake caves and clears the way for more PDT nominees and an alarming report on private as well as public debt crises.

Meanwhile, another Obama hack-in-black is derailing the Keystone XL yet again while the Left is again attempting to control the EPA vis a vis the "open science" ruling discussed yesterday. My solution? Dissolve the EPA.

From hither and yon, looking back on what Barbara Jordan had to say about impeachment, a "Queer Eye" host gets hounded for daring to say that some Republicans are actually okay, most millennial women do not identify as Feminazi, and circling back to the top two good essays on the future of the nation vis a vis Socialism. One says it'll be with us no matter what and the last says PDT has at the least killed the Obama legacy of it. It also warns that it will be an ongoing effort long after President Trump leaves office. Have a great weekend.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

All of the political ads he is running are disgusting and self serving to a degree I have never seen in my life.





And I was born and raised in NYC and have seen some sleezy, disgusting and corrupt operators.





But this fucking guy takes the cake.





And it goes to show you how pathetic the GOP is New York that they can't take this prick out.





He fucking shut down his own corruption commission once it started
to roll up his cronies and was starting to get close to him, and the NY
GOP said jack shit about it, shrugged their shoulders and presented
their posteriors to this piece of shit.





I'd say unbelievable but it happened.





The GOP is a useless pile of dog shit.





The NYGOP doubly so.

He lays out his methodology on the fivethirtyeight page. Basically they weight polls, factor in the impact of other variables in their model, account for correlation between voting blocks in different states (whites in Pennsylvania and Michigan), and then run a monte carlo simulation. 75% of the time the results show a Dem win of the House.

Did anyone catch the news that the military parade Teh Donald wanted has been pushed off to next year because the Pentagon (**spit**) has estimated the cost at 92 miiiiiiiillllllllliiioon dollars?

Here's my takeaway -

1: when has the Pentagon ever given a flying fuck about cost?

2: I don't believe any government statement. They are all traitors.

3: I guaran-damn-tee you this is Deep State hacks determined to cut Trump off at the knees, giving him a price tag he is either forced to swallow (giving ammo to the "but muh deficit!" crowd) or reject. Either way, he gets kneecapped.

DC needs to be nuked.

53 NYU's decision to offer free tuition for medical school is the first step in an attempt to reduce doctors' debt which is one of the arguments against socialized medicine. If you can limit doctors' debt you can reduce their salaries which is one way to reduce medical costs.

70 Good morning all.

So I just finished processing a mandatory meeting yesterday from my company's Director of Diversity and Inclusion. Yes, we have such a department here.

First half of the presentation talked about all of the metrics being used to measure "diversity," including percentage of underrepresented employees (that's the new euphemism, I guess) who were hired for management positions after applying.

Second half was from some grad school guy right out of academia who pinkie swore promised that the efforts of the department had nothing to do with quotas, everything is above board, no one is getting denied their career goals, and so on. Never mind the focus groups that center around gender, skin color, or sex partners. Nope. And that there aren't any groups centered on middle aged white men is just, well, never mind.

So yep - discrimination is not not only tolerated in my company...it's being actively pursued.

131 JJS,
When you hear any of these Anti-American Lefties (BIRM) claim that they "love America" or feign anger when its pointed out to them their disloyalty and contempt for this country by demanding a response to their statement "Are you questioning my patriotism?"

My answer is "No I don't question your patriotism, I am convinced that you are the enemy within and hate this country with all of your heart." (they have neither soul or mind...)

Their claim to "love this country" has a couple purposes - one of it is to deny their hatred so that they can still claim some reason to want to see it change. The other is that they are just damned liars and like the Frog and the Scorpion...

In reality, they truly hate this country _as founded_ in where they will strongly disagree with every statement within the Declaration of Independence. To me that is all that matters. If you hate this country's charter - its mission statement, its reason why people would stake their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, then you hate this country.

Their so-called "love", and I am convinced that these post-moderns have so deconstructed "love" and "hate" to have practically no meaning outside of manipulative rhetoric, that they "love" this country in the way that they envision the train set in the basement - they hate what it is now, they just love the way that they want to shape and contort it.

So when they claim "love" for country, its only their narcissistic love of the fantasy they have going on inside their corrupt, demonic and insane heads.

139 One thing I've never understood is the prior restraint on anti-Planned Parenthood speech ordered by Judge William Orrick, the outspoken pro-Planned Parenthood San Francisco judge. How is it even possible to stop political speech in a court of law? Now, that outrage seems about to end and when it does, you can expect PP to be seriously under attack.

On Wednesday, David Daleiden and his lawyers filed a motion to dismiss a
gag order in the federal case involving the undercover sting videos
showing Planned Parenthood selling baby body parts for profit. If the
federal judge's gag order is dropped, Daleiden told reporters that at
least 12 new videos would drop.

147 Whenever I go to churches to visit I pick up literature in their narthex. A church I visited several days ago has a plan for several years of growth. A lot of it was really good involving, meaningful worship, nurture in small groups and being a community of neighborly love. O.k. Great. We're not supposed to hide behind the walls. This isn hat I had a problem with:

Jesus loved among other groups they listed " the intolerable, the broken, the ignorant and the self righteous." O.k. yes. This "ministry vision" was drafted in July of 2017. Now maybe I'm overreacting but I'm wondering whether "intolerable" is a code word for "deplorable", and whenever I read about churches being concerned about the "self righteous" I think maybe they're talking about all those "other" people, because everybody else is self righteous, not me and not us Drives me nuts!

149 The PA priest revelations are horrendous. There are 70 million plus Catholics in the US and a vast majority of them aren't pedophiles. Every demographic has them to some degree. Do not equate the Church higher ups with the faithful. Power corrupts whether in the Federal government or a church hierarchy. I'm a lifelong Catholic and I truly think the PA pedophiles and their handlers should do prison time or be vilified if they are no longer alive.

Let's separate the faithful from the church hierarchy. The faithful are what make the Catholic Church great not the hierarchy that covers up abuse.

In 1969 Hurricane Camille stormed ashore on the Mississippi Gulf Coast between the towns of Long Beach and Pass Christian with winds in excess of 200mph and a storm surge of 24ft. In five hours of terrifying time the deadly storm managed to kill 131 people. The last identified victim was found 31 days after the storm came ashore, 69 year old Violet McDonald. Three women were never identified and are buried as Faith, Hope, and Charity. Some victims have never been found.

My friend-who is clergyperson getting their D.Min said that they had written a paper for their ethics class on a controversial subject. I said that I would like to read it, so they sent it to me. Then they had to add: I'm asking that you not show it to anyone; It's risky. It may be published." Why would they think I would share it with anyone? It seems to imply a lack of trust so I wrote back , "I can't imagine who I would send this to even if I wanted to; It's kind of a specialized subject but I will read it with attention."

Just send me the paper and trust that I'm not going to do anything with it. You don't have to tell me that. Sigh. (I didn't write this bit)

I heart that a lot from the left about victim group being "underrepresented" in professions, education, military, companies, etc..... How did these little tyrants get the idea every organization should be set up to represent social groups? They are not a democracy or some sort of proportional spoils system. Or should not be anyway. These organizations all have a mission, and diversity should not be on the list. Being effective should be their one and only criteria for hiring. Of course, the little tyrants know this but use that language about "representation" because it sounds good to our brainwashed LIV's and Dem lemmings.

232 The Greenfield article, right at the start, points out that tech entrepreneurs voted for Hillary, 75 : 8.8. Yet people keep saying that by emphasizing STEM courses we'll counter the Left's takeover of education.

Sure. That works great in climate science. And now in programming. The left knows where they can get the most bang for their bucks at a given time. But they aren't letting anything go. Eventually, it'll all theirs. But the Liberal Arts were the strategic high ground; what is absorbed there seeps into everything and everyone. Only those who try to resist can get ANY clarity.

Hell, even I, after over 50 years of reactionary thought, still catch myself making modern assumption. And I'm too old to have been infected by postmodernism.

yeah, that's the thing. everyone knows of the crime and fraud, many/most participate in it. So very few want Trump and the white hats to succeed in bringing down DeepState. The SES crew that has top clearance and seems to actually run things ... are acting like an enemy army, like Hydra in The Avengers. They undercut and sabotage ... and every act is another count worth 5 years (as Reality Winner may get for her one count)

But they are still operating in every department, still threatening/firing/punishing any that blow the whistle. "Our side" is revoking clearance for a handful of the most vocal seditionists, but is that really about to blow wide open? idk Seems rather minimal. #2weeks

236 I heart that a lot from the left about victim group being "underrepresented" in professions, education, military, companies, etc..... How did these little tyrants get the idea every organization should be set up to represent social groups? They are not a democracy or some sort of proportional spoils system. Or should not be anyway. These organizations all have a mission, and diversity should not be on the list. Being effective should be their one and only criteria for hiring. Of course, the little tyrants know this but use that language about "representation" because it sounds good to our brainwashed LIV's and Dem lemmings.

Anybody ever complain about certain groups being underrepresented in the NBA or NFL?

Thing is, my group is predominantly former military. I can say without a doubt at all that "diversity" hasn't been part of our calculus. We follow good old fashioned operational decision making...can the person do the job? I don't give a shit about anything else. Apparently, I'm now being told I have to give a shit about irrelevancies in order to satisfy some "metric" somewhere.

255 Re the priest scandals and Church hierarchy: speaking as a lifelong practicing Catholic, I would like to toss this out as an idea:

What if priests, and maybe even bishops, didn't make a career or full-time job out of their priesthood, and had to hold regular jobs alongside regular Joes/Janes to support themselves? This is common in places where the Church is persecuted and has to function as an underground movement. Many clergy of other denominations and Catholic permanent deacons already do this.

Yes, it would mean that Mass and the sacraments would be much less accessible (as if they aren't already limited by the ever growing priest shortage). And it wouldn't in and of itself guarantee that pervs didn't get ordained. But... if the priesthood were no longer a career with a ladder to climb and a certain amount of prestige, and clergy had to rub shoulders every day with regular people as equals, maybe it would eliminate a lot of the "incentive" to close ranks, cover up scandals and place damage control about all else?

I'm picturing something similar to the effect of moving the federal bureaucracy out of DC and stationing them in small flyover country towns .... or de-unionizing state and local government workers.... if they have less to lose and have to live and work alongside the people their decisions affect maybe there would be more accountability. Just a thought.

The sacrament of confession needs an overhaul to exclude crimes against children. The priest behind the screen needs to be able to say, ''get out'' and ''I'm not absolving you nor am I hearing your confession.''

''If you feel guilty, go admit your guilt to the police. Then come back."

I read a letter recently from someone I believe to be a priest who said it was common for these individuals to confess so they would have cover.

The sacrament of confession needs an overhaul to exclude crimes against children. The priest behind the screen needs to be able to say, ''get out'' and ''I'm not absolving you nor am I hearing your confession.''

296 Regarding the priest sex crimes in Pennsylvania: I understand that men are sinful and this will happen.

But the reason that the church hierarchy is at fault is that they let these monsters continue working with children even after they knew they were molesters!

We had one at our church. They told me my daughter couldn't be confirmed until she attended a sleepover. I told them no, there is no reason for my daughter to sleep over to learn about the scripture. I will pick her up at night and bring her back in the morning when studies continue.

She never took part in the sleepover. She was never confirmed.

And a year later, the priest was convicted of molesting another girl.

What a fucking surprise.

326 I look at the Cuomo's and I think about Sacco and Venzetti and the Italian anarchist movement and Giuseppe Fanelli, and Errico Malatesta .

If you back and look at their rhetoric, it is a lot like what the Cuomos have been spouting since Mario, including Chris Cuomo on CNN. Mario's father and mother came from Italy at the height of the anarchist movement and I'm sure they were influenced by it.

In fact, they spout more anarchist rhetoric than Catholic doctrine. Someone needs to ask Andrew why he sounds so much like an anarchist?

369 (MNN) Anthropologists recently made contact with a previously-unknown tribe of aboriginal pygmies. After many difficult hours, the scientists were finally able to translate the tribe's first words to the outside world: "'Eddie Vedder'? Are you f***ing kidding me right now?"

The chief was oddly vehement about being translated correctly.

Re the priest scandals and Church hierarchy: speaking as a lifelong
practicing Catholic, I would like to toss this out as an idea:



Posted by: Secret Square at August 17, 2018 08:56 AM



Here's my idea:



The sacrament of confession needs an overhaul to exclude crimes
against children. The priest behind the screen needs to be able to say,
''get out'' and ''I'm not absolving you nor am I hearing your
confession.''



''If you feel guilty, go admit your guilt to the police. Then come back."



I read a letter recently from someone I believe to be a priest who
said it was common for these individuals to confess so they would have
cover.

Posted by: Forgot My Nic at August 17, 2018 09:05 AM (LOgQ4)

***Strictly speaking, and when done as directed by the mother church, that is exactly what a priest who hears this sort of confession is supposed to do. If he's giving a "say two hail Mary's and you're absolved" act of contrition as penance for child abuse then he is no true priest. The act of contrition in these instances of serious felonies and misdemeanors is supposed to be of the "turn yourself in to police" variety.

That pretty much describes me. Through my early 30s I drank a lot. Since then it just became less fun. Nowadays, I go most months without even a beer, and then at most two (rare). The last time I tied one on was Inauguration Day. Watching Obama leave for good (better? best?), and NOT watching Hillary sworn in, demanded celebration.

How About a Little Game Theory?


The untenable tension between freedom of speech and freedom of association

Sonny Bunch starts off:

These are dark times for those who believe in unfettered freedom of expression. These are amazing times for those who believe in unfettered freedom of association. And these are untenable times for those who hope to balance both.

See, my position on this is simple: Both should be near absolute (Can't start a riot, etc...usual caveats). You want to shout the N-word in a crowded theater? Go ahead. Refuse to serve white people (or black people, or Democrats, or Christians, or anybody) at your restaurant? Knock yourself out. The market will take care of the latter and societal opprobrium (or a punch in the snoot) the former. But that's not the world we live in.

If you create a world in which you appeal to principles and then weaponize these principles in such a way that only one side of the fight is hurt — a world in which Kevin D. Williamson is canned from the Atlantic while Sarah Jeong maintains her position at the New York Times; a world in which right-wing YouTubers are demonetized while left-wing videos skate by; a world in which conservative voices see their tweets disappear while liberal voices flourish — you encourage people to abandon their principles altogether. (That’s why conservative provocateurs tweet about following “new rules”: They see principles as a weakness, and in a total cultural war, they might not be wrong.)

This is where I disagree. I'm not abandoning my principles, My principles are fine, as long as they apply to everybody. When they don't, when as he says they are weaponized against one side and not the other, then we are no longer talking about a principled society. Now we're talking game theory, specifically The Prisoner's Dilemma. From Wiki:

Albert W. Tucker formalized the game with prison sentence rewards and named it "prisoner's dilemma",[1] presenting it as follows:


Two members of a criminal gang are arrested and imprisoned. Each prisoner is in solitary confinement with no means of communicating with the other. The prosecutors lack sufficient evidence to convict the pair on the principal charge, but they have enough to convict both on a lesser charge. Simultaneously, the prosecutors offer each prisoner a bargain. Each prisoner is given the opportunity either to betray the other by testifying that the other committed the crime, or to cooperate with the other by remaining silent. The offer is:

If A and B each betray the other, each of them serves two years in prison

If A betrays B but B remains silent, A will be set free and B will serve three years in prison (and vice versa)

If A and B both remain silent, both of them will only serve one year in prison (on the lesser charge).

It is implied that the prisoners will have no opportunity to reward or punish their partner other than the prison sentences they get and that their decision will not affect their reputation in the future. Because betraying a partner offers a greater reward than cooperating with them, all purely rational self-interested prisoners will betray the other, meaning the only possible outcome for two purely rational prisoners is for them to betray each other.[2] The interesting part of this result is that pursuing individual reward logically leads both of the prisoners to betray when they would get a better reward if they both kept silent. In reality, humans display a systemic bias towards cooperative behavior in this and similar games despite what is predicted by simple models of "rational" self-interested action.

I've stated my principles above, however, if I do nothing in the name of “principle” when the other side violates them to my detriment, then pretty soon I'll be removed from the board. The ONLY* way to move back to the principles that I want is to make the other side suffer as much as I do until they cry “Uncle”. Then we can discuss a world where we both have the freedoms that we should.

*This is the part of the argument that I never see the “Muh principles!” crowd making. OK, fine, what is your suggested course of action to bring society back to equilibrium? Seriously, game theory is nasty and dirty and no fun for anyone. Give me an alternative. I've never seen any of them suggest anything other than martyrdom. Martyrdom's great-except martyrs never encourage the other side to do anything, they usually function as the butt of a joke. They only function to encourage the losing side to finally fight back. If you don't like what I've proposed, suggest another course of action, one with a chance of working. I'm waiting.

The Chicago Way

Gangs and Politicians in Chicago: An Unholy Alliance

But hey, let's talk about the NRA, M'kay?


Heroes Walk Away From Explosions


Women in Combat


Since this has been in the news lately, Jesse Kelly had some thoughts:


Click on the link and scroll down to read the thread. Jim Webb was even more blunt (if that's possible) way back in 1979. I think it's a bad idea in general, but any woman who wants to serve in combat and can meet the exact same physical standards required for men, should be allowed to. If we stick to that, I think it'll be a vanishingly small number of women who find themselves on the front lines, and those that do will have absolutely earned the right to be there.

Dys_____(fill in the blank)


11 Facts About the Math Disorder Dyscalculia


Interesting read. Dyslexia gets the attention all, but I suffer from a related disorder, dysgraphia (I kan't spel). Spell check was a godsend for me, but sometimes you might notice it creeping into my posts. Homonyms are the worst because spell check doesn't catch them, whether and weather, for example. I actually do know the difference, but sometimes I'll use the wrong one and my brain just doesn't see it when I'm proof reading. Other times I'm just an idiot, last week I heard myself saying “So that's apt K as in 'cat'”, for example. I know that one too, but sheesh.

That's How You Get More Trump

Firefighters Filming Trump Motorcade Going By Get Sudden Surprise They Wouldn’t Soon Forget

That's another thing that doesn't get mentioned enough. After who knows how many years of studied disdain for the common man from those that consider themselves to be our betters, Trump cuts right through all of that, and for all his faults he obviously has a real appreciation for Joe and Jane Six-Pack. Say what you will, but stuff like this happens too often for it to be anything but genuine.

30 I was never in the infantry, or anywhere that didn't have air conditioning and hot coffee and a quiet shitter with the UCMJ printed on the wall, but we had guys who wouldn't have been able to drag all 180lb of me out of a smoke-filled compartment, and some guys who couldn't have been dragged two feet by a team of mules. It's not always a guy-dragging contest. In the military, every team is made up of individuals who each work together to form a cohesive whole that's as completely useless as a left-handed football bat, as one. That's what really matters.

I weigh half again what my wife weighs. We once tried this, and she could barely drag me half a dozen feet. No reflection on her: I'd be hard-pressed to drag a 270 lb. man very far myself. Most MEN are not fit (or young) enough to qualify as firefighters, never mind most women.

40 Look, I like America Ninja Warrior. Here's the thing: only one woman competitor on that show is anywhere near the level of the good guys. And she's a one in a million girl. Jesse Graf could haul me out of a fire, but she's the exception to the rule. The vast majority of even the fit, training all the time women on that show can barely, on their best day, dream of doing what the average competitor on that show can do.

So yeah, put Jessie Graf in charge of the platoon. No problem. How many Jessie Graf's are there out there? There's her... and that's about it. Maybe 10 other women with that ability in the world. Not enough to change the law for, in my opinion.

67 Iterated prisoner's dilemma explains the current "conservative "philosophical divide that's going on pretty well.

The acela corridor shouting "muh principles" is saying we need to always cooperate, no matter how many times we're betrayed. Whether because they truly advocate for the other side or they fear endless betrayal on both sides depends how much you believe them.

The make them live by their own rules is saying we need to adopt a tit for tat strategy in order to punish the other side back into cooperating. In practice it's a far superior play than always cooperate and even if the other side refuses to ever return to cooperation, it's a far more just system than one side always suffering for the other's benefit.

69 Ace had a game theory post... it wasn't the Prisoner's Dilemma but it showed that if the other player isn't following etiquette and is "punishing" you, the only winning strategy is to behave the same towards them.

95 By the way, my previous doctor's son became a firefighter. A big proportion of what they do is emergency medical calls. If my dad fell and I called 911, the firefighters were sent, they would decide whether an ambulance was needed.

What usually happened was that two of them would come in. Sometimes one of them would be a woman. In medical emergencies one person doesn't lift, whether it was two men or a man and a woman.The woman was usually pretty big and strong. I think they do have rigorous standards.

105 In principle, the idea that if a woman can meet the physical standards for combat then she should be allowed is fine. The problem is that eventually the standards will be lowered to please the screeching harpies that are complaining because very few women are qualifying.

165 The other problem with women in combat is, even given equivalent levels of strength, it was found that in mixed infantry platoons of males and females, the females suffered 8x the injuries of the males.

No, I remember that well, because the mounds of snow were so high that this 17 year old HS football player could not even throw snow over them.

It was either 2 or 3 winters later that it got so cold that it popped the freeze plugs on my car. Maine South, 1981 for me.

172 And NOW I see Infidel's response to me! Thanks Infidel, sorry about my whine at 157.

Sounds like things are going halfway decently, which is good. As I recall, you come from a liberal family from hell. Or is that zombie?

As for the job, I had a better week. My boss managed to keep her sense of humor, which I always welcome (and nurture by responding to it).

We also got to talking about past jobs. It turns out she also used to work in the Hollywood/NY music publishing business, and was talking to me about how incestuous show business in general is. She mentioned how everybody not only works together, they socialize together, eat out together, go to bars together, shop together...

She admitted it's like a cult, and even acknowledges most of them are all-out liberal hypocrites. (They all live in some of the whitest neighborhoods in all of Southern California, and all in the San Fernando Valley, which they rarely leave.)

We're not talking about the barracks, are we. I'm perceptive like that.

For whatever it's worth, I didn't sign up for a boy's club,* and I care as much about keeping military communities sexually-segregated as much as I do about arbitrarily integrating them, which is to say, not at all. The purpose of the exercise is to hurt bad people and break their toys, if you can do that, IDGAF. I know this bears only on a very selective community in one particular branch, but that's all I have any experience to speak from. I worked with guys who could have carried me under one arm and were so transcendently useless that they would have dragged us both INTO the fire. If a girl can lift about 50 pounds, operate a valve, detect, track, and classify broadband and narrowband acoustic signals, display the occasional flash of common sense, and show up to work on time, she could have done pretty much everything I did. Basic adult hygiene skills a bonus.

I hope this doesn't come across as snippy, it's not meant to be.

* OK technically I did, but that wasn't why I signed up for it.

181 The Prisoners' Dilemma Game:

Strikes me as being a little simplistic.

In real life, defense attys would confer & explain to their clients that if they BOTH clam up, they both walk. Also, there are things called "Joint Defense Agreements." Also, most prosecutors wouldn't indict either dude if there's not enough evidence to convict, absent some unknown future cooperation. They're not supposed to, & nobody likes to eat an NG verdict.

What a prosecutor would more likely do is offer the less culpable one immunity in return for truthful testimony, & then stick him in the GJ to lock his testimony down.

Thx for indulging me in my little rant.

It was shopped around in time, but editors at the major news outlets took one look and knew it was bullshit. The only reason anyone knows about it is Comey put it in the president's daily security briefing, which couldn't happen until after the election. Once it was in the briefing, they could report it as a document supplied to the president.

What happens if you challenge your DI to a fight in basic?

That depends, doesn`t it? It sounds like if a sparring match is arranged and it's not a challenge to his authority, that could be part of the training. I don't know USMJ obviously.

Sucker punching the superior officer or talking back to him or insulting him, that's different.

I'm not sure the demographics are that bad. I think it is that the population is largely liberals and democrats who are so used to wallowing in identity politics that they can't deal with gang members effectively. They really think you can play nice with thugs.

They're the midwest version of the "leaders" on the west coast who are letting homeless and junkies shit in the street and shoot up in public. No brains and no balls makes for bad leadership.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara, now with an added spark of divinity at August 16, 2018 10:12 PM (YqDXo)

Reminds me of my H2S Alive course that I must do every 3 years to keep working in the oilfield. No way I could drag some 200 pound fit guy out of a confined space, being a 200 pound unfit guy. But I can learn how to don and use the SCBA, so that I don't become a casualty that the 200 pound fit guy has to drag to safety. So there's that.

And I if go to work on a potentially sour well that has an Emergency Response Plan, it's almost always my job to go to the regional response center and receive civilians evacuated from the exclusion area around an uncontrolled sour well. They get me off the lease, and I have something useful to do. Never had to do it, fortunately. You plan to deal with disasters, you have fewer disasters. Funny, that.

He said something that made me think of Cassandra. Cassandra was cursed in a creatively cruel way by the Greek gods. She was given the ability to see every disaster ahead of time, EG an earthquake killing people in her town. And the curse was that no one would ever listen to her no matter what she said or how she acted. You can see how frantic and tortured she would be, stuck between two conditions, one made horrendous by the other.
Unsaid and unnecessary to the story, is that Cassandra is not a misanthrope. She loves her friends and neighbors like a normal person would.

He briefly outlined the leftward drift of every government over the past 50 years as something tragic and a symptom of low moral or sense of purpose. How sad that these decades were mostly the life of Thomas Sowell. Sad that he was the greatest and clearest conservative of all, and while giving his very best, he watched the nation go slouching in the opposite direction. And especially in the last ten years.

I have no intention of being a Cassandra. We will win or go down swinging, and that inescapable choice has been laid before us. This may be the most accurate division between myself and GOPe. Fuck Bill Kristol, he has a mouth made for a BOD. Him and his cocktail coterie of bugmen can go to hell, less-cheerful that they didn't take us with them.

322 222 Question, if only 1% of Women could meet the stringent necessities of the modern battlefield.

Why then create all the Havoc that dual Sex units create?

Fact is, when under stress, your sex drive INCREASES... it does not diminish.

Fact is that ANY type of romance in any unit, degrades unit cohesion... whether male on male, or male on female...

Fact is that there is a MONETARY cost to putting women in combat units...

And the simple fact is, they add NOTHING to combat effectiveness... nothing...

AND you do not have the RIGHT to serve... yes, its a privilege... but one with numerous and stringent requirements...

And YOUR Feelings, should not be the cause of MEN getting killed in combat.

328 "I think it's a bad idea in general, but any woman who wants to serve in combat and can meet the exact same physical standards required for men, should be allowed to. If we stick to that, I think it'll be a vanishingly small number of women who find themselves on the front lines, and those that do will have absolutely earned the right to be there."

No. Guy who was in the infantry in Iraq, here. No.

First of all, women will never, ever be held to the same standards as men. We don't do so normally, and we won't change anytime soon. Oh, I treat my female employees the same as... Yeah, sure you do. You do double entry bookkeeping. Nobody gives a shit. Add young high-T men and stress and see what happens.

Second, women fuck up men's group cohesion and dynamics. Don't look at me like that. Infantrymen are typically 18-25 and they want to bang everything that walks. Drop a female into that and the immediate unspoken question becomes, 'who's going to fuck her'. These are... The Days of Our Lives, coming to a barracks near you.

Or she's a short haired butch lesbian who everyone just hates and... Spoiler... she's still physically marginal compared to everyone else.

'But the Kurds. But the Israelis. But the Russians.' Yeah. Heard it. What do they have in common? NO FUCKING CHOICE, that's what. When the Wehrmacht, the Arabs and ISIS come knocking in a war of extermination against you? Yeah, every warm body. But we're not there. You put women in combat when you're on the ropes and it's that or you lose to someone who will not be nice if they win.

My little brother is in the USMC infantry. The battalion next to theirs had a female. She didn't want to come to formation one morning. Squad leader pounded on the door and told her in no uncertain terms to get the fuck outside.

The squad leader got in trouble.

That woman you read about in Larry Correia books? The badass who's just One Of The Guys? We create that fantasy in our heads because we want to think they're like that, they're like us, it's like the computer gamer who dreams of that perfect girl who'll play DOOM with him. Are they out there? Yes. But you've got a better chance of being struck by lightning.

340 326 So methane made the canaries die?

No.

The Methane combines with lead in the rocks to make an anal STD known as a 'Fart Knocker' which they picked while sitting down on their lunch break.

This STD was, in turn transmitted to their gay lovers 'up top' who then unfortunately passed it by sneezing - or other things - on their pet birds, which is always fatal in birds with decorative plumage.

When a load of canaries died off in camp they then knew there was Methane in the mines...

354 ALH: You might appreciate this.

Driving the twins to high school, I passed a house located around a Catholic church and its cemetery. Between the back end of the cemetery and this house was a small vacant lot. Every year for Halloween, the home owner would create a Halloween creche scene. Pumpkins, skeletons, the whole nine yards. I loved it. Then around the Thanksgiving, the owner would switch out the Halloween creche for a traditional Christmas scene. I always wondered what the priest of the church thought of this terrific parody.

Dude, I was born about three weeks after the 1968 election. My dad was in the Navy at the time, saw the sh*tstorm forming, and put in for the West Coast somewhere.

We were in San Diego when I was about three months old.

Lat time I set foot in Chicago was when I was eight or so, for Gramp's funeral.

My dad had his reasons for not wanting his kids to have anything to do with Chicago.

Enough methane would probably sedate them. But the #1 gas danger in coal mines is carbon monoxide. It kills you dead, and canaries, being little birdies with a much higher metabolic rate than coal miners, are more susceptible than humans. So if Tweety stops singing, and falls to the floor of its cage with a Thump, it's time to unass the place.

398 One big point on the women in combat crap. I agree - they need to meet the same physical standard as men.

The only PROBLEM is, as time went on and NO women could meet the standard for Marines in IOC (Infantry Officer Course) after literally hundreds had tried, then they reduced the standard for EVERYBODY.

Multiple extremely difficult physical events went from actual evaluated events to simple complete/not complete.

So in order to get women in they lowered the standard for MEN too.

It's a fucking joke.

I was born and lived only the first nine months of my life in the city. My parents bought a place literally next to a landfill that they were promised would be turned into a school in Park Ridge in 1963 for 28k.

Growing up, I thought it was a boring town. Looking back, it was a great place to grow up. The town was already built out, so no subdivisions. Just blocks of houses. You could ride a bike all the way across it by crossing 3 4 lane streets.

No, our county voted to enact a Charter so that we could put term limits in play.

He sat on the Charter Commission with several other elected officials who then chose not to enact a Charter and hence no term limits.

548 Just read at Wikipedia:

When Fleetwood Mac were making Tango In The Night in 1987, everyone was pretty unmotivated. On top of that, Fleetwood admits the band more or less forced Lindsey Buckingham to write and produce most of it, which he resented.

Buckingham had a revenge of sorts: he forced everyone, including Stevie Nicks (who he had publicly broken up with 10 years earlier), to record their vocals in a studio that was set up in... Buckingham's bedroom. Yeah, I'm sure that wasn't awkward.

Nicks kinda/sorta got revenge by helping herself to Lindsey's liquor cabinet, drinking a gallon of brandy and running through her takes pretty much slobbering drunk. Lindsey says he had to more or less fake her vocals himself, because of it.

Where the hell does he get this idea? The right to free association is far more restricted than the right to free speech. Has been for a handful of decades, now.

Enemies of America are enjoying pretty much unfettered free association and seditious planning but Americans are generally forced to associate with people that the government declares they should associate with. No right of freedom anywhere in there.

It's not just the strength issue, it's the whole circumstance. There's not a single pro sport out there where even one woman could make the men's team as a decent contributing member (outside of drag racing, it seems). Do people really not think that professional sports would be drooling all over themselves to be able to field at least one woman if they could. But they can't. They can't even fake it and field a female benchwarmer.

But our military is going to take the most dangerous and important sport of all and field women. Great stuff, guys. Thanks a bunch. You're the best. Really. The best.

True. But like I said, women operating from vehicles have a pretty good track record. They're not all bona fide heroes like Hester, but you can train aggression into women. You have to train it into a lot of men, too.

But women in dismounted infantry is a bad idea. They just don't have the upper body strength, and a your average 20 year old woman has the oxygen carrying capacity of a 50 year old man.

That's another thing that doesn't get mentioned enough. After who knows how many years of studied disdain for the common man from those that consider themselves to be our betters, Trump cuts right through all of that, and for all his faults he obviously has a real appreciation for Joe and Jane Six-Pack. Say what you will, but stuff like this happens too often for it to be anything but genuine.


I was at the second 9/12 march in DC. Before it got underway, we were chased out of the street because Preznint Roundball's motorcade was zipping down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House from the Hill (roundball was his GAME, donchano). Arrogant and disdainful prick he is.

The touching incident occurred on May 23, but the video went viral just this weekend. In the video, President Trump emerges from his limousine clapping. He thanks the firefighters, shakes their hands, and poses for selfies. "Thank you, thank you," Trump says as excited firefighters eagerly surround him.

"That's awesome!" one firefighter is heard saying in the YouTube video posted by Viral Hog.

President Trump was leaving Bethpage, New York, that day following a forum on illegal immigration, where he paid tribute to families whose loved ones were murdered by MS-13 gang members. Long Island is a hotbed for MS-13 gangs, whose motto is "Kill, Rape, and Control."

636 PS - to the cobs, I really wish you guys would stop posting crap with
characters that we have to friggin clean before Pixy accepts the paste.
It's a royal pain in the ass.

And
I have no problems with Pixy's system, but the cobs can just clean their
posts before they publish them so that you and I can copy and paste the
stuff in the main post without having to get that annoying error page
and go through the paste cleaning up all the rejected characters.

I "wash" all of my posts through a unicode to HTML tool. That changes all of the unicode character that Pixy doesn't understand (it turns them into black diamonds) into normal text. For example, it changes a curly apostrophe into # 8 2 1 7(remove spaces). This takes extra effort on my part, for something I am not getting paid for, but I do it in order to present the best possible product to y'all. If you are having trouble cut and pasting stuff because the unicode characters exist after you've copied the text, you can do the same thing using the tool here: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_center_css
The conversions work as well in the comments as they do in the OP. We (or at lest I) DO our best to present a coherent text within the bounds of the limitations of the software. And we do it all for free. If that is not to your liking, I have a simple solution.

Go find yourself a chainsaw. It doesn't have to be a good one, or a modern one, but it should at least run. Take that thing and tweak it until it runs as smoothly as a baby's bottom. Once you have it purring like a kitten, I suggest you take some time to make sure it is lubricated properly. Make sure the bar oil reservoir is filled up, and be sure that the fuel it is running on is a proper 40:1 mix. Rev it up. RRRRR! RRRRR! Feel the power vibrating in your hands. IT'S LIKE BEING A GOD, isn't it?
Next, hit the kill switch and lube up the chain itself. I suggest you use Johnson and Johnson KY jelly. Make sure you lube the casing at the base of the bar! We wouldn't want any non-lubricated parts to spoil the nickelodeon, now would we?
Then, I suggest that you pull the cord and fire that puppy up. Let it warm up, as I said, feel the power in your hands. Once the chainsaw is good and warmed up, squeeze the trigger to maximum..

And shove that bad boy right up your ass until you can feel it behind your eyeballs. This same advice holds true for people who complain about gifs.
Trust me, you'll feel a lot better when you finish.
No, scratch that. *YOU* won't, but *I* will.

Trump is walking up as the hat comes off. Trump leans down, scoops up the hat, goes over and puts it on the marines head and pats him on the shoulder and then proceeds to enter the helo.

That's a leader of men.

I think it was Christ who said that to be a leader of men you must become their servant.

Not a slave and not an inferior but their servant. Respecting them as you expect them to respect you. Doing your share of the work that you are able and required to do.

The feudal system had it embedded in it. Along with a man's pledge to his lord, the lord also pledged to look out for the man.

Every good leader that is loved will have this trait.

642 I just finished reading the 1979 piece by Jim Webb about women in the military and man, I have a couple of thoughts:

1 - It's a loooong essay. Amazing that the The Washingtonian expected the average reader to have the attention span required to read such a long piece. Have we really become so distracted and so used to dumbed-down articles that anything longer than three pages now feels like a chore?

2 - Much of what Webb wrote almost 30 years ago is so un-PC it feels revolutionary now. How far have we strayed that simply stating that the purpose of the military academies is to train men to fight now seems like a forbidden thought. And Webb acknowledges obvious differences between men and women - and expects the reader to understand those differences, too - differences we dare not mention these days.

3 - What the hell happened to Jim Webb? How is he still a member of the Democratic Party? How on earth does the 1979 Webb go along with the Dem party's current embrace of feminism and LGBTQ politics?

My second ship was the third Haze Gray and Underway ship (tenders do no count) to integrate women into the crew. 10% swap. A lot of training.

We had a good CO who made it work. Even with the ability of female sailors to get pregnant to avoid sea-time. But I have some stories.

And fortunately nothing really bad happened. There still is a big place for upper body strength in damage control. Prevention, in peacetime, does work.

Wow: Pentagon Analyst Stripped of His Security Clearances After Questioning Exorbitant Contracts for Trump-Campaign Spy Stefan Halper

The people currently all worked up about John Brennan losing his security clearance will have nothing to say about this case.

Via JackStraw. Big news.

A Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst was stripped of his security clearance by Obama-appointed officials after he complained of questionable government contracts to Stefan Halper, the FBI informant who spied on the Trump presidential campaign.

Adam Lovinger, a 12-year strategist in the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment, complained to his bosses about Halper contracts in the fall of 2016, his attorney, Sean M. Bigley, told The Washington Times.

On May 1, 2017, his superiors yanked his security clearance and relegated him to clerical chores.

Mr. Bigley filed a complaint July 18 with the Pentagon's senior ethics official, charging that Mr. Lovingerís superiors misused the security clearance process to punish him. He said his client complained about excessive "sweetheart" deals for Mr. Halper and for a "best friend" of Chelsea Clinton.

"As it turns out, one of the two contractors Mr. Lovinger explicitly warned his ONA superiors about misusing in 2016 was none other than Mr. Halper," Mr. Bigley wrote in his ethics complaint, which called the contracts "cronyism and corruption."

Mr. Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint in May with the Defense Department inspector general against James Baker, director of the Office of Net Assessment. The complaint also singles out Washington Headquarters Services, a Pentagon support agency that awarded the Halper contracts totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.

A friend tells me that the James Baker mentioned there is James H. Baker, head of the ONA, and not, as you might guess, the James Baker who resigned from the FBI under suspicions of leaking out the "Steele" oppo report.

There was previous reporting on this story last year, but absent the information about Stefan Halper.

James Baker is an Obama holdover who Richard Perle calls "shallow and manipulative."

Baker is an Obama holdover appointed by Secretary Ashton Carter in May 2015, who remains the ONA director 11 months into the Trump administration.

Lovinger specifically protested $11.2 million in ONA contracts awarded over a decade to the Long Term Strategic Group (LTSG), a company owned by Jacqueline Newmyer, a childhood friend of Chelsea Clinton. Clinton and Newmyer first met each other while attending Sidwell Friends School, an exclusive private Quaker school in the nationís capital. They were in each otherís weddings, and in 2011 Chelsea referred to Newmyer as her "best friend."

Lovinger's attorney, Sean M. Bigley, accuses Baker of continuing the LTSG contract in the hopes it could help him in a Clinton presidency.

...

The IG's decision to launch a preliminary investigation occurred as former high-profile national security officials are beginning to publicly weigh in about Bakerís allegedly retaliatory actions.

Richard Perle, Ronald Reaganís former Assistant Secretary of Defense, told TheDCNF of Lovinger, "He's been treated so badly. It's a disgrace."

Perle called Baker, "a shallow and manipulative character that should have gone with the change in administration."

Across the Atlantic, Richard Kemp, the former commander of British troops in Afghanistan, who worked for four years at 10 Downing Street for British Prime Minister Tony Blair, also denounced Baker's alleged act of retaliation.

"He is a highly respected analyst across the board," Kemp told TheDCNF referring to Lovinger. "The way he has been treated is deeply troubling."

Lovinger, a GS-15 attorney and strategic foreign affairs analyst, successfully served at ONA for 12 years and each year received the highest possible "E" rating in his performance review. The "E" means "exceptional" performance.

Lovinger was also the 2006 recipient of the "Secretary of Defense Exceptional Civilian Service Award," the highest career award for civil servants in Office of Secretary of Defense.

But Baker poorly rated Lovinger in 2017, after he raised issues about the ONA's reliance on outside contractors, including LTSG.

And also the outside contractor Stefan Halper, as it turns out.

A friend points out that charges were levied against Lovinger two days after CNN reported on the dossier, having been assisted in this -- delivered the "news hook" they'd told James Comey they needed -- by Comey, Brennnan, and Clapper.

16 this fits their pattern ... Sebastian Gorka wanted some of his fellow students to work with him in his (brief) time in the Trump admin'. Not only could he not have them, ThePowers punished those that he named (in their jobs in DC)
Mr. Lovinger (I presume) was punished for uncovering DeepState mafia moving money to mob "family and friends".

The MSM is also diligent at punishing "outsiders" (Palin, TrueTheVote woman, the plumber that embarrassed Obama).

right, I think the point is, DeepState (at least at that point) was still actively in control of punishing whistle blowers ... congress did that recently to some FBI that were going to "come out of the closet".

More rumors are that many more FBI are witness to the crimes, but SES mobsters or whoever ... still run the place, and are still castrating those that dare speak out.

GS 15 or so ... Robyn whatshername (fired, pretty high up)... many others, know they still are punishing truth tellers, it may be worse now than ever (because they are desperate? maybe, but the fight is ongoing)

Bush 43 also kept on Clinton's appointees.

At first it could be chalked up to the typical GOPe "comity" with the Demonicrats, and a little later it seemed like poor judgement.

But now all these years later it turns out that the Bush and Clinton families are besties.

105 Brennan wiretapped and spied on the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the Press and the Opposition Party candidate.

As a private citizen and an Obama advisor, he even broke into the State Dept's computers repeatedly for Obama and McCain's birth certificates. Try it sometime and see if you get to walk. In fact, he was awarded the CIA job for his crime.

His security clearance should have been yanked then and there.

The guy is a One-Man Constitutional Crime Wave and exactly why the Founders said "A Republic--if you can keep it." And "against all enemies, both Foreign and Domestick".

Crybully Brennan says he's being silenced, but nobody is stopping him from writing another Phony Dossier with his British and Russian pals and Hillary employees.

As a private citizen and an Obama advisor, he even broke into the State Dept's computers repeatedly for Obama and McCain's birth certificates. Try it sometime and see if you get to walk. In fact, he was awarded the CIA job for his crime.

His security clearance should have been yanked then and there.

The guy is a One-Man Constitutional Crime Wave and exactly why the Founders said "A Republic--if you can keep it." And "against all enemies, both Foreign and Domestick".

Crybully Brennan says he's being silenced, but nobody is stopping him from writing another Phony Dossier with his British and Russian pals and Hillary employees.

243 Forrest Gump was named after Nathan Bedford, is all I know on that score.

Forrest wound up on the wrong side of history more than once, but from the little I know is one of the more remarkable and practically talented in our history. Skilled at business especially trading, politics and most notably military tactics and execution.

Can anyone recommend a biograpy

I will remind (because I cannot let the mention of Christopher Lee's name go by without) of the stiory told by Peter Jackson in the audio commentary for the Return of the King:

Jackson was evidently trying to 'direct' Lee on how he should sound as Grimma Wormtongue stabbed him in the back.

Lee evidently turned to him slightly exasperated and said: 'Peter. Have you ever killed a man by stabbing him in the back?'

'Well... No.'

'I have. I know what to do.'

76 So... the site is so dangerous it must be destroyed before trial, and a judge decided these men posed no threat and should be released on signature bond?

My guess is that the prosecutor and cops had no case, which is why the charges they brought against the guys were lame, to begin with. If I were the judge I would probably hold those responsible for the destruction of the crime scene in contempt for a few years.

If any of these jihadis are illegals or green card holders then they should just be deported. If they are naturalized citizens then find if they kept citizenship in the countries they came from (against their Oath of Renunciation) and strip their citizenship and deport them.

And move these cops and prosecutors to other jobs ... jobs that don't require much competence ...

You mean it doesn't make sense in an administration of justice/protection of the innocent sort of way. But once the prosecution's case is gutted by accusations of discovery violations and sanctions leading to a dismissal of charges, the narrative will survive.

Exactly. The First Amendment was mainly intended to prevent a recurrence of the wars between Catholics and Protestants in Europe that were still fresh in the minds of the founders. They never imagined in their worst nightmares that there would ever be large numbers of Muslims in America.

However, since the Muslims went free, I wouldn't think it was them. I hope it is people outraged by her decision. If we want to be different than Europe we have to pick up the phone and make calls. I don't like to threaten...but maybe it is angry people and she's calling it threats.

Squatting is nothing but trespassing cubed. The judge letting the dirtballs take over someone else's property is much worse than having let them out on no bail for dinky "child abuse" charges.

246 This story is all hype and no real story (except the kids).The authorities removed the RV (impounded it, basically) which comprised most of the "compound". The bit that was "razed" was part of the stupid tire wall they built around the thing. (They had to get the RV out, after all.)"Compound" has always been a bit laughable. The whole fort they built was on a bit of land smaller than me and my neighbor's lots in the subdivision from what that video shows.These people weren't dangerous jihadis, they were complete nut-balls abusing their kids. (They were still jihadis, they just weren't really dangerous to anyone but the kids.)

They had weapons and they had kids they were training with weapons. IF they were planning to send the kids into schools to do shootings, they certainly were dangerous jihadis.

The fact they had a crappy little compound doesn't factor into the equation. The Unabomber had a crappy little cabin. He still managed to kill three people and injure 23 more.
