NFL Decides at League Meeting That It Will Not Require Players to Stand for National Anthem

It will merely suggest that they do so.


Don Surber discusses the NFL's cash cow drying up, and links this great Victor Davis Hansen article about our failing institutions of civic unity (the media, the NFL, etc.), which contribute to the nation's rush into total dissolution.

Which, at this point, in my opinion, is as inevitable as it is welcome.

The public is turning the channel on what used to be the markers of its weekly existence.

Slowly and by hit and miss, Americans are learning that they do not need to go to a theater to see another Harvey Weinstein movie; or watch network news or read traditional journalism; or, on NFL Sunday, see more zillionaires in their luxury boxes above grow giddy as their employees below score, only to see a showboating player kneel on all fours to mimic a urinating dog, which is apparently less offensive than standing for the national anthem.

We have no common values, and we increasingly have no common culture. Progressives spearhead efforts to remove a common language.

With nothing left in common, how are the states united in anything but name?

Call an Article 5 convention, enact an amendment permitting secession, and let two or three or four young and vital New Americas bloom out of the dead stump of the old one.

1 Now when I read on Monday that some NFL player got carried off the field, I find myself wondering if that will impact their ability to kneel next weekend.

12 they hate us, they really really hate us. Which raises a question..who is wagging the dog?

The left had to import 50 million new voters since Billy Clinton only got 43% of the vote in 1992. The DNC exists only to service these new voters and the billions of potential voters out there in the rest of the world which the GOP, like nazis, keeps out of the USA. So, is this anti-american hatred reflective of old school prog hate or new, replacement american hate of the normies they are replacing?

Most of the people that seem completely leftist have swallowed whole the provable lies ... like Hillary destroying evidence, and deciding she can move top secret stuff onto her private open to the world servers. Or take 100's of millions in return for uranium and supersonic missile tech.

It is still possible that full revealing of these crimes cracks the left ... and America First seems reasonable, and the insanity of 'open borders' arises from the PC ashes as obvious.

It is the "snap out of it" snap that hypnotists use to break their trances.

My theory is that a larrrge number of D voters know it's all bullshit, are playing politics, and truly believe that they are smarter than R voters, so they can pass off completely obvious lies to the dummies in an effort to win their political objectives.

I honestly thought the Muslim shootings and bombings, from San Bernadino to Boston to Orlando, would have done that.

Maybe they still exist somewhat in some rural district far from scrutiny of DC and without a large enough pop. to merit the lawyers invading and demanding they conform to the national standard.

I have no concept of what was regularly taught in my parents school. I ran across an old math book and was amazed at what was regular fare in 8TH GRADE!!!! Stuff I didn't learn until after 3 years of higher math (my senior year in High School).

They have managed to dumb the entire country down and how we will ever climb out I have no clue.

No need. Secession is certainly permitted under the Constitution. What happened in the Civil War was that the SOuthern states seceded and then the United States went to war with a foreign nation - afterwards readmitting the seceded states into the Union.

If secession wasn't possible then there would have been no reason to have to readmit the states into the Union.

Don't think that it would require the Federal government. You forsake the laws of the land, the laws of the land no longer protect you. And with a contiguous border next to potentially hostile tribes, and/or hostile tribes within, I think you might see a return to the wild west in short order, while you have given up the protection of the Federales.


Just because an existing government decides it wants to splinter off, it does not mean that they are owed continuity of allegiance/deference.

156 And the owners care so much too - like Jerry Jones going out of his way
to get Greg Hardy onto the Cowboys knowing that he beats up women.


They are so inconsistent and hypocritical with their "sensitivity" yammering. Jeff Lurie was all about being an "agent of social change" when the Eagles signed Michael Vick. However when a lineman or DB, can't recall the position...got nabbed speeding across the Ben Franklin bridge with a PA legal gun (not legal in NJ)...they cut him without further ado.

In Lurie's universe: dog killer>kid who gets caught in non-reciprocal catch 22.

Football is in no way a "need".

It is a "want".

Not even a high level want...a sort of "eh, I got nuthin' better to do and I like seeing the Cowboys win" kinda want.

There is always something else to do.

No the NFL won't go away or bankrupt, but it will lose its status as a bit of Apple Pie Americana.

It will exist at a lower pay/lower status level...like pro-bowling.

And at that point, who cares to watch a bunch of guys who have the Privilege of Playing a Kid's Game into their late 30s/early 40s display their contempt for the people and country which allows them this privilege?

And the stupidest thing of all was this was a lame-ass bit of lookitmeism from Cupodicks, a guy who no longer has enough game to play in the big time.

Curious as to what excuse she used for the switch. (I assume she once loved you or said she did.)

I'm fascinated by the reasons given. Especially these days of entitlement and rampant feminism.

Does anyone wonder about the fact that since no fault divorce became almost universal in the states that divorces are initiated by the women in 70percent of all filings?

That the majority of states have some sort of communal property laws and laws requiring the husband to give up residence in a house he's paid for and somehow find other shelter when his pay only barely helped pay for the house he's been removed from? That you never hear about these inequities from the feminists and male bashers. Only about wife abuse. (which also begs the question, what about the man when he is abused by his wife? Happens more than you think and not a small number.)

Ah well. You've gotten me started. I'll shut up now.

Oh, and who gets the nukes?

The NFL could have nipped this all in the bud last year by telling Kopernick's coach that he can't protest on the job, to stand up and be a part of the team. But they didn't. Now, too manay are involved in this idiotic stunt because the NFL set precedent that its perfectly fine to spend on job time with your personal schemes and tantrums, so they can't say no at this point. To many players are involved and how they have leverage and strength to defy the team and the league.

If they'd been smart about it, this would have been handled right up front. But they weren't and now they can soak in it.

262 OFFS, it's only football. "We" never declared it a national institution, and by the way that did not happen in the 70's. Football's PR department, not entirely divorced from certain shadowy gambling interests, worked from the 1930's on to Heisman-off the ethics lobby trying to outlaw it. Because--spoiler--it's crooked.

It will shock some of you snot-noses standing on my lawn that Rock and Roll Music was not part of the real-American football experience. It will shock you only because you've grown up with its glossy production values. Real football, pro, college, and high school, marched to Sousa. Even great old classic rock and roll like Elvis and the early Rolling Stones had no place there. Truth of the matter? Just looking like a rock fan could get you roughed up at any football game a scant 50 years ago. It changed.

Football wheedled its way into the National Institution business, to keep the baksheesh flowing. If the rest of us do not choose to "evolve" with the bootleggers and dope-dealers, well, we had Most Popular Sports before this one and they weren't all team ball games. Folks managed to have a good time.

Crew boat races, open-air swim meets, and rifle matches were the most popular spectator sports at the turn of the last century. American motor sport -- sprint cars and the Indianapolis 500 -- were immeasurably bigger than football in the 1950's. All those events are still being held. And they sell tickets for the public to watch. Compared to a hundred or so to watch the Ghetto Motherfuggas bash heads with the Drugged-Up Mish-Snatchers, admission is a tremendous bargain.

I know it's a metric four-by-four to the side of the head for sommayaz, but we don't need a constitutional convention to decide we like another game better.

Have ICE put together a large SWAT team, and have them surround the facility where he is being held. Wetback doesn't leave, or get transferred, without ICE's say-so.

If California LEO's attempt to interfere with ICE, or worse, fire upon them, Trump declares California to be in rebellion, and send troops into Sacramento to arrest Jerry Brown, and all the Dems in the legislature, and hang them on the spot for treason.

Bitter: I've detailed my woes before, but let me chime in. As the only working parent in the house, I did all I could to keep my marriage together. It takes a while for these dysfunctional people to fully out themselves. I left because of harm to myself and my kid. HE got the house, I got the payments. I was even in a shelter while I had to pay his bills during the divorce (because I couldn't reduce the value of communal "assets.")

I lost the house and one of my retirement accounts. He didn't work during the marriage, so what got split was EVERYTHING I HAD WORKED FOR. So much for supporting someone "in the arts."

Just sayin': not just guys get hosed.

306 Let's not forget that the 1st Amendment protects peaceful "protests" like kneeling for whatever or standing or sitting or laying around....done peacefully.
It's not like the players are inciting violence.
Other folks have the freedom to not watch.
I'm not watching nfl, haven't in years, and won't ever again.
We should all cherish our freedoms to choose.

Instead of trying to force players or 'actors' to stand up for something, they should simply be mocked and shunned as ridiculous, petty, ironic, and hypocritical.
Viewers tuning out is accomplishing exactly that, silently. Cutting the cord, not watching, not caring, and not ever going back is the course for me, an individual.
I can't make a millionaire child-man care for America or her symbols or anthems any more than he can make me care about his "protest" of her.

I still love the game of football, the strategies, the decisions, the grit, the togetherness that exemplifies teamwork, but I can no longer watch national football on account of the individuals not realizing what whole they are a part of.
They can choose to kneel. I can choose, too.
That is another great thing about America and the freedoms we all have, for now.
I have the freedom to laugh at them and not empower them with attention or money.
I have that freedom, until they tell me that laughing is 'hate speech', which is the endgame for SJW's here and abroad.
I choose to laugh at them, soundly and loudly.

'Merica!

310 it's only football. "We" never declared it a national institution, and by the way that did not happen in the 70's. Football's PR department, not entirely divorced from certain shadowy gambling interests, worked from the 1930's on to Heisman-off the ethics lobby trying to outlaw it. Because--spoiler--it's crooked.

Yeah, NFL is an institution because they got rich and bought themselves into being an institution. People behind the game were geniuses at promotion and emotional manipulation, they did such a good job at turning basically a dull game into an exciting super spectacle with sound and graphics and replays and exciting-seeming narration.

When you turn what, 20 minutes of play into 4 hours of TV time and people still watch... its not the product, its you being really good at shaping the product and selling it.

The NFL was built by geniuses but isn't being run by them now. They're messing up the formula and getting it wrong, and as a result people are walking away.

I really liked football when I was 13-14 years old. Have no idea what started the fascination, maybe because my neighborhood was all boys and I used to join them in playing touch football.

After a decades long hiatus I would tune in to games from time to time because my workplace was highly testosterized and I felt like I needed material for water cooler convos. I noticed how everything surrounding the game had gotten turbo-charged and amped up: radio announcer voices, graphics for the pre-game shows which by the way started on Saturday evening and continued on through game time.

It was all over the top and too much. Then the Sandusky scandal erupted and the awful situation in Sayreville NJ football team. I wondered wtf had happened to this game that used to be ...just a sport?

It really is, IMO, for many reasons. (I'm prejudiced, I'll admit.)

First, people don't get hurt.

Second, it's not nearly as specialized.

Third, because it's not as specialized, it tends to select for normal-sized people. The typical MLB player is around 6'1" 205 lbs. (With some exceptions, either way, of course.) It's not generally an advantage to be 7 feet tall, or weigh 300 lbs., because you have to haul that around in the field and on the bases.

In what other major sport would an Altuve be MVP, at 5'6" 170 lbs.? Hell, Willie Mays was only 5'10", 170 lbs.

Will throw it out there again.

Don't know the mechanics/ins and outs of it, but Trump should instruct Mattis to disengage DOD from support for the NFL, now that they've formalized their stupid racist stunt-culture.

No flyovers. No color guards (where provided out of DOD resources). And especially - no advertizing associated with NFL broadcasts or events. Zero.

It is beyond outrageous that the USG - and the DOD itself - would in any way support this idiocy with taxpayers' $$$$.

Wonder if this idea has occurred to the WH or anyone at the five-sided puzzle palace?

The longer the games got, the louder and more spectacular it had to be to keep interest and hide how little was actually going on.

The Superbowl pregame stuff is the ultimate overkill. Week upon week of buildup and interviews and retrospectives and on and on.

Because its just one game. A couple hours and the entire season is over with. They need to milk it for more. Other sports its a multi-game final series so they have more days of content to keep attention and make money with. Football has just one game. So they milk it for all its worth ad its... really unappealing.

368 355 First, people don't get hurt.

Second, it's not nearly as specialized.

Third, because it's not as specialized, it tends to select for normal-sized people. The typical MLB player is around 6'1" 205 lbs. (With some exceptions, either way, of course.) It's not generally an advantage to be 7 feet tall, or weigh 300 lbs., because you have to haul that around in the field and on the bases.

In what other major sport would an Altuve be MVP, at 5'6" 170 lbs.? Hell, Willie Mays was only 5'10", 170 lbs.

At this point, if this were really about whatever the players claim it
is about, they would give it up because it's only alienating people from
their cause.



I got into a pretty lengthy twitter argument months ago about this. It was enlightening.


What do you and I believe is the point of a protest? To raise awareness and bring others to our cause, right? To say, "This is good/this is bad, and here's why." Because we protest to change things from the ground up.


The leftists sniping at me in my timeline were of a different view. "No, protest is to force change. It's to make people in power uncomfortable so that they fix things."



To leftists it's not about gaining support from the ground up, but about coercing action from the top down.


That made the Mizzou debacle make so much more sense in my eyes. Here are a bunch of idiot students complaining about some illusory affront to their dignity, but instead of getting their faces and placards in front of every camera they could find, they were actively keeping cameras AWAY. Hence Melissa Click's "I need some muscle over here!" gaffe.



At the time I wondered why any protest worth its salt would be actively trying to AVOID publicity. Now I know. They don't want to persuade and cause organic social change. They want to shortcut that whole business and go straight to the levers of power to force artificial, socially engineered change from above.



Once I'd made that realization I felt awfully silly for not figuring it out sooner, since it perfectly matches the left's modus operandi in all other things.

Obama's UN Ambassador Susan Power: I Didn't Make Those Unmasking Requests. Someone Must Have Made Them Using My Credentials.

Then that would be a major crime, right?

Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

That's what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview.

South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her.

Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests -- a rate of one per business day -- in her final year in office, including up through the end of Obama’s term.

I'm halfway willing to believe this -- but then, I'm gonna need a major investigation to find out which Obama personnel were using Power's logins and such to illegally make these unmasking requests.

Apparently someone without the power to do so himself -- or someone who had the authority, but knew he was engaged in an illegal operation, and so wanted to conceal his identity.

We would be able to trace exactly who made the fraudulent unmaskings, but the details were on a hard drive and, gosh darn it, the thing crashed just yesterday. Totally unrecoverable. We checked. And since it was unrecoverable, we ran it over with a steamroller and melted it in the incinerator, so there is nothing left to even look at.

On top of immigration invasion insanity, crazed spree killers and conspiracies, rogue "sanctuary cities", Antifa riots in the streets, MS13 invasion, kangaroo fake rape courts, Nork nukes, Shadow Government /Deep State,Data breaches, Traitorous and worthless Congress, malware, creeping Communism in the schools and the NFL, 60% of the country on meds, 49% of America clinically insane, can't even repeal the shittiest and most unwanted piece of legislation in American History, backstabbing Fascist judges overruling EOs ...

After the first time the information came to her she was all either like:
"Hey, who requested this illegal shit using my password? Why, even having this on my desk is a crime. I better get to the bottom of this right away because it might reflect badly on my reputation and put me in a position to be incriminated in a conspiracy and potential jail time."
Or
"Hey, Cool. It worked. Lets do it 259 more times!"

106 Secured government facilities where these requests are being made have cameras. Everywhere.

A request is made from a computer using credentials only authorized for use by that person.

Ergo you could quickly find out if she's lying. Which I believe she is. She's ass covering. There is no reason for her to make those requests. It would only be as part of a broader scheme.

Posted by: Marcus T at October 18, 2017 12:41 PM (brsgu)

107 There are many problems with this.


1) If someone was posing as Power, it means they obtained her credentials somehow. Either she shared them with someone (a big no-no), or they purloined them against her knowledge (a REALLY BIG no-no).



2) Regardless of how this "other person" got her credentials, the fact that s/he was permitted to continue making these requests in such large numbers without anyone actually asking Power's office, "Uh, why is the Ambassador so interested in unmasking these people?" means there's been a major breakdown in the chain of approval somewhere. Someone SHOULD have noticed and SHOULD have mentioned this behavior to higher authorities. They're fricking intelligence analysts; they should be able to smell something's off when the Ambassador is making, like, 2 unmasking requests a day.



3) Which makes one wonder: if someone DID notice, and DID report the irregularities, why was it allowed to continue? Don't bother to answer, we all know why: because Obama. But of course that doesn't excuse this gross lapse in judgment. Even if Power herself was making the requests - and I believe she was and this latest pushback is just an attempt to keep the wolves at bay - there should have been inquiries made and lines drawn. That becomes 100 times more obvious if her story is true and it was someone posing as her who was making the requests.



People. Need. To. Go. To. Jail. I know I'm preaching to the choir here, and I also know we're all going to agree nothing will happen to these people. But we still need to say it.

2. 260 "unmasking" requests. From the same computer and/or network? Different computers?

hmm yeah...

"Handing out prison sentences" . Like pancakes. mmm pancakes.

Prosecutors bring cases to judges and juries who try cases. There is a process to getting to the sentencing phase.

And sentencing is performed by Obama-friendly if not Obama-appointed judges in Obama-friendly DC. Where the juries are composed of welfare queens, government workers and SJW assholes just raring to set Obama's entire administration free as a bird.

They have the courts, they have complete cover within the legal system. They have the Deep State. The cops can bring cases to them all day and the prosecutors will sit on them, crush them or SJW them.

Violated their security clearances? Like Hillary Clinton's classified emails? Yeah right. Have you seen the cost and long drawn out process of getting just one little idiot girl who stuck classified docs in her panties through the justice system?

174 To repeat from last night.

"The unmasking of names is supposed to be done by a small group who have
the authority to do it. If others were given the ability to unmask in
the name of one of the principals then there is no real limit on how
many people could unmask the incidentals collected. And no way to know
who they are.

Obama greatly expanded the number of people who
could access, on an ipad or such, anywhere, the Presidential Daily Brief
which is classified at the highest level. The unmasked names would be
in this electronic document. Were all the 30+ people who got the PDB
authorized to use the name of a principal to unmask? Were even more
people? For either access to the PDB or to do unmaskings?

Hillary
sacrificed all national security to hide corrupt financial dealings
enriching herself. Did Obama sacrifice national security to do political
warfare using national intelligence agencies as his witting or unwitting
dupes?"

Of course he did. Giving power to a lefty Democrat is matches and gasoline to an idiot child.

179 Jonah Goldberg's "Tyranny of Cliche's" comes to mind, in the sense that once some technical-sounding name gets attached to a story, or issue, the lazy media just keeps using the same word, to sound smaht.

So, Hillary's selling influence to the Russkies becomes "The Clinton Foundation scandal" i.e. something vague and meaningless. Hillz' putting her own communications in such an insecure environment as to have virtually guaranteed that every major foreign intelligence service had a window into the SoS and POTUS decision making on foreign policy, i.e. spilling top level Presidential intentions to our enemies, becomes "an email scandal."

So it is with the "unmasking." Every functional retard in the MSM covers this as the "unmasking scandal" or "unmasking allegations" that means Jake Shite to most Americans. Call it what it is: spying on Americans, and more particularly, spying on the political opponents of Obama-Clinton Inc. Not blaming Ace for this, who does call it for what it is; just incredibly frustrating that to the extent these stories get traction, they do so under these abstruse, bloodless terms.

Jeff Sessions should be holding a press conference on domestic SPYING, with high level presentations by Congressional Intelligence Committees. This is way worse than the crap that resulted in the once-famous Church Hearings.

But, as one prior poster has pointed out, it seems that the sheer volume of corruption and treason of the prior administration had deadened most people's ability to care anymore. Sad.

Actually... yes...

If you look at the actual text of the unmasking law... the person requesting the unmasking is the only one supposed to see it... and unless they get a warrant, are supposed to destroy said unmasked information within 24 hours.

Clearly there were no warrants issued...

Fun thing? The Agency which has the information is the one you must make the request to... FBI is in charge of counter espionage in the US... so would have been the appropriate agency....

Has that ever been investigated?

The Russians, through a Canadian front company, gave over $100 million to the Clintons, getting approval of their purchase of US uranium mines in return.

Has that even been investigated?

We can make a list a mile long, but the point is too obvious to belabor: Jeff Sessions is in place to stop investigations, or let the criminals investigate themselves, and not to drain the swamp.

b. perhaps he misspoke but didn't say what was said he said in context. Such as "He knew the risks but took them anyway as any soldier/sailor/marine would've" etc.
c. this scrunt of a Rep has a reputation for going after any and all conservatives/GOP just because.
d. why was she in limo with wife?
e. call was on speakerphone supposedly
f. if Trump woke up and said Good Morning America, the headlines would read "Trump ignores Night workers"

Just more static. Trouble is even the people who know this are getting tired of it. When will the News industry implode? Where's the damn preference cascade I was promised?

Power claims someone else did this using her name.


What is the process? Is it automated via a .gov system? Does the system still allow a user ID and password for login or is it, like almost all .mil systems, one that requires the use of a Common Access Card or a specially chipped "token" card for access, i.e. something that someone must physically have in their possession, insert into a card reader at the terminal, and know the PIN in order to access the system?

What is interesting to me in the process...

In order to ask for an 'unmasking', you must know that the conversation exists... that it was intercepted.

How the hell did she know about these conversations in the first place??? Someone at some other Agency must have TOLD her (or whoever asked for the unmasking ) about said intercept.

FBI is in charge of counter espionage in this country... NSA outside the country.... CIA spies on our enemies (but only supposedly outside the country)...

Just who in the hell HAD the conversations in the first place? Who was the Agency in charge, and why the hell did they not question why the UN Ambassador was asking to unmask said conversations?

You wanna know what is really freaky about these unmaskings?

Say that you are a Russian, and you are worried your conversations might be intercepted by the NSA. If you have an asset embedded in the bureaucracy that can request the unmasking of US Nationals who were involved in the conversation, and then that information is widely shared and leaked, then you know the Feds are listening to your conversations.

It also works the other way, if your embedded asset is leaking national security information to the NYTimes, or unmasking US Nationals that get caught up in the intercepts, you risk exposing your embedded asset.

Under the law, it does not go to the FISA court.

The request goes to the Agency who has the intercept... and THEY decide if it is a valid request.

They then provide the unmasked intercept, and the originator has 24 hours to get a Warrant, or they must destroy the information.

Needless to say.... that's not what happened... the information was spread all over...

But the FISA courts are not involved unless you legally want to keep the information for over 24 hours...

But the ONLY penalty for not following the law? is that the information can't be used in a Court of Law... which these people don't care about anyway.

330 If the evidence points to Susan Power doing the unmasking, and by evidence I would assume some form of paper or electronic requests that uniquely identify her as requesting these, then she's guilty. If she claims evidence, let her come forth with exonerating proof it wasn't her.

Like:
1) OK, who did you share your login/passwords with?
2) Who was authorized to make these requests on your behalf? Proof they had had the authorization. Names, dates, etc.

352 Here's hoping that the NBA follows the NFL down into the dustbin of history.

I was a long time Magic fan, primarily due to the fact that BBoySquared was as tall as I was when he was 12 y/o. He was a natural for basketball despite his birth defects.

He played for a couple of years and I kept on being a fan. I slowed down when they let Shaq leave without so much as getting another center to replace him. Since then, they've screwed the pooch on nearly every trade since then. I got tired of watching other teams in playoff games and going, "Oh, he used to play for the Magic. Hey, so did he." A few years of that pretty much turned me off. Then there was the Bronco Bama years. Now I'm convinced they're just a tax write-off for the DeVos family. Basically a D-league team that's in the big league as a farm team.

That they're turning SJW just cements my decision to abandon that sport too. F' them.

384 Did Eric Holder need months and months of painstaking following of laws and painstaking procedures to get off his ass and do what HIS President wanted done?

Nope, he blew off the law, ignored the constitution and just did whatever the hell he wanted. Somehow I don't want our AG doing that. Do you?

========

We live in strange times. It may be what is necessary at this point to counteract the damage of the last eight years. You don't normally go about killing people, but if they are trying to attack you, lethal force is justified. It's not normal behavior, but being attacked is not a normal circumstance. The question is, is the response justified?

"Plus, when a Democrat goes after a target, they don't have both parties and the media protecting their targets. Holder didn't have remnants of the previous president in the justice department actively working to undermine his work and protect their targets for investigation.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at October 18, 2017 01:18 PM (39g3+)"

========

So, purge the remnants. And people mainly ignore the media anyway. That's why we see all these protestations "the media is a valuable institution! And we must respect it!" We need to wage all out war on these people at some point. Power would be a good start. Not Hillary, not a minority. The left would be unable to generate any controversy about her.

Here's my question(s):

Power claims someone else did this using her name.

What
is the process? Is it automated via a .gov system? Does the system
still allow a user ID and password for login or is it, like almost all
.mil systems, one that requires the use of a Common Access Card or a
specially chipped "token" card for access, i.e. something that someone
must physically have in their possession, insert into a card reader at
the terminal, and know the PIN in order to access the system?

Even government computers that are non-military require a chipped ID card for access to the computer. Beyond that, yes, she likely would have had to have a username and password, and the password would have had to have been changed every few months. So who else had access to her information?

Who made such a leak impossible to find by signing an executive order distributing the informational as widely as possible? Who was obsessed with his legacy?

I say, she is willing to take the perjury charge over answering any more questions on unmasking. If her claim is that she 'didn't do it,' it is on CONGRESS to prove that she did. Will they be able to do this? How long will it take?

I think Power lied to avoid having to answer more questions and weighed her options. She is hoping that they cannot clearly make the connection back to HER...if they do, she'll take the perjury hit along with any other charges. But at this stage, to lie was her best and only option.

It's a meme around here that cultural appropriation (an ignorant and stupid idea to begin with) goes both ways. Why is it perfectly okay for our Western culture to be appropriated, yet corn-rows and tacos and rap and sombreros are sacrosanct?

Stop driving, eating clean food, going to the doctor (Eastern Medicine is fine though) and using indoor plumbing and then get back to me.

Time for the annual olive harvest lies by the Palestinian Authority
Ghassan Daghles, monitoring Israeli settlement activity in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA settlers coming from 'Eli’ and 'Shilo’; two illegal Israeli settlements located along Nablus-Ramallah highway, attacked Palestinians harvesting olives in the village of Qaruot.

Locals scuffled with settlers and managed to fend off their attack. No injuries were reported.

Yisrael Medad, who lives in Shiloh, checked out the story and it is complete fiction.


Ah....fake news; it's not just an American tradition. In fact, I think we culturally appropriated it from the Pallies, who are masters at it (and very little else besides murder).

98 I'm convinced most of this crap is caused by the lack of classes in History and Literature.

A class in either one would soon make one realize that all cultures appropriate and that some cultures aren't appropriate for some people and that that's NORMAL.

But they are so ignorant these days. They have no concept of what went before so anything they manage to think up or are passed by some other bright spark becomes revelatory and never heard of.

They become their own leading light and latch on to anything that provides them with a sense of belonging and self righteousness at their elders. Or others.

And this lack of education can be laid at only one place; the liberal education instruction establishment.

It's willful destruction of our foundation. We may never recover. The people who are in our schools now are woefully unprepared for life and living. The government will be their only salvation.

The political correct crap with the NFL has been happening for a while but was easy enough to ignore ... but after last year and especially this year I'm done. After those morons knelt down in London for our anthem but stood for God Save The Queen I haven't watched 1 minute of it. It's dead to me. And they did it to themselves.

Speaking of edumucation, for no particular reason yesterday I searched for info on the CA state univ. system (not the Univ. of CA system, the other, larger, less "prestigious" one). Specifically, thecurrent % of incoming freshmen who fail basic English and math capability as determined by placement tests.

Only number I saw was 40%. 40%. Savor thehighly extracted outrageousness of that, with its subtle undertones of insanity, and a bitter finish. Forty percent. This huge portion of the student body must take remedial classes - which don't count towards graduation, since, um, they are covering matter that is supposed to be learned K-12, BEFORE college. This is of course delays graduation. CSU's 4-year graduation % is 20% (% of students finishing in 4 years).

It gets better. Starting this school year, there will no longer be remedial classes. Haven't figured out the mumbo jumbo that purports to explain how unprepared students will somehow be "educated" at anything like a college level when they are NOT at college levels to start.

Gonna go WAAAAY out on a limb here, and speculate that what will be done is nothing, and what we have here is a massive, formal, official degradation of the value of a CSU degree, in one swoop. Just giving in to educational failure of the K-12 complex, a gigantic "social promotion" debacle.

Oh - in one of the linked articles recently, I learned that the "diversity" czar at UCLA makes $400K+ ...... words fail .....

The incident in which the two White women were forced to close their taco stand because it was racist or something came up.
Sitting nearby was a guy, clearly of Hispanic or Central American heritage, listening.
I said I wholeheartedly agreed with the concept of cultural appropriation and that Mexicans should henceforth have exclusive access to nachos, sombreros, and mariachi bands, and we will take airplanes, laptops and penicillin.

198 Earrings were a sign of slavery, see Ex 21:5-6
Along with tattoos, they identified the slaves master. Also, pagans indicated the pagan god they served via their jewelry. Runaway slaves found piracy to be one way to earn a living, hence the pirates with earrings.

Boys In A Dory
Winslow Homer

Some of Homer's work is incredibly detailed, and it is obvious that he used his skill as an illustrator and print-maker in many of his paintings. But this watercolor is a bit different than most of his work, and I love it!

I can hear the splash of the oars in the water and the whisper of the wind driving the schooner in the background and maybe one of the boys is whistling or singing softly to himself....

114 I didn't know Homer did watercolors, so this was a surprise, a pleasant one. I don't know if this is true but it has the feel of a plein air painting. The figure rowing behind the dory is loose, too much water that let the paints bleed a bit. The sails, sky and background look to be done rapidly with little color blending, leaving a flat look. The dory is more detailed as are the boys in it, making it the focus of the painting. The subtle use of splatter adds to the watery theme.

I realize my reaction is subjective but I wonder if Homer used watercolor for its immediacy. The boys are starting out on an adventure without a sure end. As with any water travel every moment can vary. This is even greater because that dory is a lot of boat for such small boys to handle. That introduces an element of 'unsureness' or danger to the adventure, more than if they were on a hike. I especially like the wide-eyed look on the smallest boy in the oversized hat sitting just behind the prow.

***Umm - no. Trump merely stated that he liked to call the families of the fallen - whereas previous presidents usually used handwritten letters or (or, in the case of Obama, form letters with a pre-printed signature (you know, like a telemarketer). The MSM ginned up some made up controversy that misstated (or "lied", if you will) this into " Trump states that Obama never met with or did anything for any families of slain soldiers". Aaaah - no - he did not say that - but now that you mention it - Obama seemed to rely a lot on pre-printed form letters and really, for the most part, with only a few exceptions, did not meet with, call or write personal notes to the families of slain soldiers. Hence. the ridiculous twitter statement by disjointed lefties "How dare you say that Obama never met with the families of slain soldiers - that is a lie!!! How can you lie like that Here is the one picture of him with the family of a posthumous medal of honor winner!" "Eleventy!" Meanwhile - all the hundreds of families of those soldiers who died who got a form letter form Barry Soeto are seething. Perhaps some industrious MSM reporter might want to talk to those folks hmmm? ***crickets***
Thought so.
Trump should meet this head on and have a presser where he "makes up" for Obama's snubs by having ALL of those families over the White House, or, if they can't make it, he calls them personally over the next few months. heh. That would be great. I looked it up - its only about 2,000 families. Totally doable. Best press conference ever - opening up the people's house to the families of slain servicemen who only got a form letter. Cost to Trump - probably not than much. Watching lefty heads explode? Priceless.

The "Floridian nutjob congresswoman" needs to be named, shamed and have PDTs tweets shoved down her throat until she chokes.

I'm sorry for the family, but this "drama," as you call it, stems solely from this Dem asshole getting her TDS on. Punch back twice as hard, as a certain dog-eating crackhead once opined.

207 125 ... "People like Winslow Homer for the detail in his works, the technical proficiency on display, but his paintings leave me cold. I never feel anything when I look at Winslow Homer's paintings except admiration for his technical prowess.

But that's just me. Opinions differ."

I understand troyriser's opinion but I have a different reaction. Part of the appeal of Homer's works for me is they often elicit the senses of sound and scent, not just sight. Also, the images usually suggest a story which adds to my enjoyment.

The subjective nature of a painting's appeal is part of the fun of the art thread for me.

212 >>>Trump merely stated that he liked to call the families of the fallen - whereas previous presidents usually used handwritten letters or (or, in the case of Obama, form letters with a pre-printed signature (you know, like a telemarketer).

Not quite.
So Monday Trump gets challenged about the 4 Soldiers killed in Niger. He is vague and evasive, then in typical Trump fashion, has to insist that he does more than any President before him. So Tuesday he calls the widow of SGT Johnson and is a little awkward in what he says. And now apparently it is to the battle stations rather than letting it go.

It is ridiculous to imply that he does more than previous Presidents. Frankly Bush was the best. Genuine. Not a lot of fanfare. It is too early to say how Trump will truly do, but I do not have high expectations and he is much better when he sticks to scripts.

I agree. The left wants to make a spectacle of the dead when A Republican is president, but few flag draped coffins when it is Obama. But they love using gold star parents for their "make love not war" propaganda.

Beyond that, the Democrats belittle the man's service, not Trump. Because Democrats seem to hate our military as much as Obama did, as much as they hate the cops. Their new meme is all patriotism is racist, so praising the man's dedication for signing up to serve (patriotically) is a bad thing. To them America is the source of all evil, the Big Satan, if you will.

For most Americans, going in harm's way is honorable -- to the left it is deplorable. Because we should all lay down arms and open borders and fly our Che flags, but kneel for the anthem, and tear down all white man statues. sheesh What country do they love?

I don't disagree with anything you said - but I still think using
the families as political pawns (even in regards to responding to the
classless left's attacks) is something that is in poor taste - and no,
I'm not a neverTrumper.



Posted by: Defenestratus at October 18, 2017 10:21 AM (a9n6M)

As someone else above said - Trump did not do this - the left did. And they did it by lying. AND they did it by lying at the expense of families of the fallen who were marginalized, at best, by the Obama administration if not downright disrespected.The response to this is to point out the hypocrisy and make sure families of the fallen are moves front and center and honored whenever possible - so they CANNOT be used, silenced or marginalized, by the left - which is precisely what the left wants - they want Trump to stop talking about fallen soldiers and how their families were mistreated by the Obama admin. Jeb! probably would have done that and the press would have been happy that they swept another embarrassment by a stupid lefty president under the rug - but, thank God, Trump is not that way - so he is walking up and smacking people around.

The response to these people is "I didn't say that at all - so that is a lie - but now that you mention it - the way Barry Soeto treated our fallen boys is a disgrace - form letters? You will never see form letters in MY administration. In fact - we are going to open the White House to all the families of the fallen who want to visit . Please arrange this through your local Congressman and we will open our doors to you . . any day."Boom.I did not suggest you were a #nevertrumper . . . . but . . . now that you mention it . . . you do sound concerned.

Lefty Santa Barbara loves their Summer Solstice Parade, which sometimes pushes the envelope a bit. Back in the mid-90s, there was one float with an S and M theme.....studded leather, whips, and a painted but naked woman walking out front. Middle aged, a little fluffy. Tall, like amazonian tall. The float was organized by her and her husband/boyfriend, who was pushing 60 yrs old, but had gauged ears and facial piercings (he used to frequent the same restaurant I did, used to see him all the time).

Much handwringing, pearl-clutching and caterwauling about nudity in the parade from the local leftists.

Within a few months, the couple got busted. Seems that they were running a long-time brothel in town that everyone totes didn't know about. Totes didn't know.

I had a doctor's appointment in connection with something non-life-threatening but potentially very serious nonetheless. It looks we may be able to get it managed, thanks to a big pharma company's patient assistance program for one of its medications that I absolutely have to have.

390 Worst street name I ever saw was in Louisiana somewhere:

"Old Trash Heap Road."

I'd love to advertise a house for sale on that one. Locally, we have Smuts Road, which is bad enough (named for a family that used to own the land)

My favorite is a road south of my town, outside city limits, kind of an important thoroughfare, named "That Road". How did you know you had gotten to "That Road"? Well, it was the one that didn't have any signs on it. Anywhere.

It was always fun to either follow or give directions to someone about it - "well you just go down south a town a bit til you get to That Road, and you'll know it because it ain't got no sign. So turn there. But be careful and don't turn on some other road, cuz you'll get lost, just be sure and turn on That Road."

The Victorians were pretty freaky themselves, when they wanted to be. Victoria herself, when told she must not have any more children, lamented to her doctor, "Can I have no more fun in bed?"

And the book When Passion Reigned is a good, if scholarly, take on Victorian-era sexuality.

They tell us we are having unusually warm weather but being from AZ its just perfect. Shorts in the day and cools at night for a sweater. AirB&B has changed our life here. Staying with locals is the way to go. The crowds are minimal in Asissi, but in Rome its always crowded it seems. Assisi is going back in time to the 13th century. Nothing modern. Amazing.

I long ago realized that writing is work. Waiting for "inspiration" is a fool's errand.

The only time that I feel that I'm anywhere close to pure creation is in the pre-writing phase where I'm developing characters, doing multiple outlines, and generally figuring out where the story goes.

After that, it's just work. Sit down and write. Get that first draft done. It's going to be shit, but that's what second drafts are for. The second draft is going to be less shit but still need work, that's what third drafts are for.

You're probably right.

Our government has our best interest in mind, and the FBI is, and has always been above reproach.

The smart and honest men and women of the FBI are doing what they have to do to keep us safe, and we should trust every single thing they say.

Honestly, I'm not very smart, so it's hard for me to understand why timelines keep being drastically changed and why a witness would go missing for a number of days, but the government knows best, so all we can do is give them our blind trust.

Also... I'm female, so my reasoning abilities are limited as well.

486 Sessions says it is up to Rosenstein on whether he wants to "investigate himself" on the Uranium One fiasco that he was involved in, because "he is an honorable man".

So I guess Sessions is not an honorable man, because when he had a (tiny) conflict on the Russia thing, he rushed to recuse himself and put the whole matter in the hands of the Swamp, which rushed to put in the most conflicted man they could find, that was also involved.

But Rosenstein gets to decide for himself to NOT recuse, because he is so honorable that even if he committed criminal/treasonous acts, he could investigate himself, no problem.

sheesh. Sessions sounds like he is owned by the Swamp.

My two cents on SD caliber.

Using quality, proven, modern self defense designed rounds..... there is not much performance difference between calibers. There is no such thing as "knockdown power" pertaining to handguns.

That being said. I prefer to carry as much ammo as I can comfortably conceal. I love the 45 ACP.... but I want more than 5 or 7 rounds. My MINIMUM carry number is 10. 13-15-17 is better.

My choice for conceal carry puts me into double stack 9mm firearms.

Like I said. My personal opinion.

YMMV.

524 I'm tardy to the party this morning on this thread, and I'm a total lurker, but I wanted to say how much I love the "morning art thread". I know nothing at all about fancy art and I look forward to it every morning!

Autumn is in full swing, but as I reside in S. TX we are just staring to feel it, mostly in the mornings. This time of year seems to bring out the hardcore America love in me and I tend to pull out my old copies of Coopers works, The Scarlet Letter, The Crucible (all of which I admit I just skim these days), and my absolute favorite novel since about the 5th grade, The Witch of Blackbird Pond.

I wondered if the artsy person in charge could post some works that are reminiscent of Colonial America, works that remind us where we come from and why we continue to love this land unapologetically.

Sorry, I caught the feelz this morning I guess.
Really really love the mini art history lessons in the mornings!

The Morning Report 10/18/17

bitterclingers.jpg

Good morning kids. Hump day brings us several major stories. First and yuugest, Robert Mueller, the man charged with manufacturing trumped-up charges to unseat the duly elected President and thwart the will of the people himself knew about and perhaps covered up actual collusion between ex-president Obama, ex-secretary of state Clinton and the Russians before a deal that sold off 20% of our nation's uranium supply to a key geopolitical rival/enemy, while handsomely profiting the Clintons.

Next up, after putting two massive torpedoes into Obamacare, the President is now signaling support for a "rescue and resuscitate" bill crafted by the twin turds of tiny thinking Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray. And even Chuck Schemer likes it! Yay! Sheesh. Please, Mr. President. Kill this evil edict once and for all. Meanwhile, Mitch McCriminal harumphs when Steve Bannon snaps his goiter belt into his triple chin. Well, we knew this was never going to be easy.

On a related note, Rush Limbaugh destroyed John McStain yesterday by fisking his thinly veiled attack on PDT. Quite good and worth your while. In any case, if you listen to the rewind, ol yellow stain sounds like he's on death's door, but the alien chest-burster saliva coursing through his veins is keeping him going, I guess.

Meanwhile, and as predicted by yours truly, Pervey's brother Bob has now been charged with sexual assault. Honestly, it didn't take Kreskin to figure that one out. And yet the left deflects this as somehow being symptomatic of Donald Trump. I think it's safe to make the generalization that the war on women is being waged virtual exclusively by those on the Left, especially its political, cultural and media elites. Projection, hypocrisy and lies: that is the Left, and finally it seems as if it is being exposed.

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

And since the ONT featured John Wayne, here's a story: the Duke was proud of the fact that his movies were continual money-makers for Warners, but one year, on looking into the figures, he found that the studio was actually misreporting income and expenses and cheating him out of profits.

Wayne knew that Jack Warner, the production head, was responsible, and from that moment on refused to hear the man's name uttered and, whenever he was at a function where Warner was present, went out of his way to avoid him.

Finally, of course, Warner did manage to corner Wayne at a party. "You've been hiding from me, Duke," he said. "Why?"

"Because you screwed me, Jack,"
Wayne answered.

A smile creased Jack Warner's face and he slapped Wayne on the back. "Well, hell, Duke, that would have happened anyway. Besides, we're your friends!"

When he comes to a roadblock he doesn't just butt heads with it, he does something to change the circumstances, the political terrain. He speeds up the OODA loop, so to speak, and everyone finds himself scrambling to respond.

Must frustrate the dickens out of the reporters and correspondents and pundit that things change so quickly.

83 Someone within the Obama administration's intelligence apparatus made
requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence
reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the
United Nations.

That's what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview.

South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News
on Tuesday that Power was "emphatic" on the point that someone else in
the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been
attributed to her.



That would require complicity by the people who provided the unmasked intel, right? There would be witnesses who would have known they were being given a request by NotSamantha Power and acting on them.


The worst part is, I could believe this. The Obama WH was just that awful that they would intentionally leave a false trail like that, then Powers denies it (not lying), and then....what? Who are you gonna prosecute now?

133 The left's dominant characteristic is that it is composed of people who are incapable of learning from experience. No matter how many times the left has the rake labeled "Socialism" smack them in the face - they can't resist running over and stepping on it every time they see it.

For leftists reality exists only in the way that they have been told it exists by their ideology; no amount of conflicting evidence can sway them from their indoctrination. For leftists the question "who are you going to believe what you have been told or your lying eyes" is not a joke; it is an existential necessity.

WRT Shirley's article I would say we are not winning but have simply started to engage which ultimatley may lead to winning but we are far, far from that.

The problem is Trump is the first conservative to have the ability and desire to get into the arena and fight the good fight.

I simply don't see anyone that can take up the fight once he leaves the scene.

And let's be clear, it's going to take a sustained multi-generational fight to reclaim our country from the forces of evil and tyranny.

Pence does not equal Trump.

Cruz does not equal Trump.

My fear is that once our champion is gone we will backslide and give up what little ground we have gained.

And this ground we have gained has been uniformly of the pen-phone variety which can simply be undone by a Democratic predecessor.

153 Regarding the unmasking requests that Samantha Power now denies she made, surely there must be some requirement that the administration official making the request actually sign the request form?

This is highly sensitive information, and you have to go before a FISA court to get it. Surely it was not a matter of just filling in some other official's name on the request form?

And BTW, was no one in the FISA courts keeping track of these requests, because it seems like the sheer number of requests being submitted by Samantha Power, a UN ambassador with no plausible need for hundreds of Nat Sec unmaskings, should have raised all sorts of red flags at the time?

I don't know why Soros chose now to do this, unless he sees the enemy (US) firing on his battleships.

One of those Soros battleships seems to be the MFM which has been firing broadside into the US Ship of State for a long time, but melting the barrels into everything Trump.

While the nation cries for divorce, the facts about Hillary (and Weinstein, and the whole left) cheating on America is not understood by the masses. If the MFM protective bubble ever fully pops (The Hill article is a good indicator), the public opinion could turn fast. They will learn the left is the one that "married for money" and there was no love for real America ever, just deceit covering up contempt.

Honestly, did you ever think there would be any records from Obama's presidency? He had no records from his time in IL state Senate, and no personal records since birth.

Thought it was fairly clear with his cabinet's use of persona; emails and the various federal agencies "losing" and "destroying and not backing up records - by mistake!" that it was always going to be the ghost presidency.

Obama corrupted every single part of our government, including our national security apparatus, for his own sordid political purposes. He belongs in prison, and his ferret-faced Iranian mommy-substitute Jarrett, and his failed novelist a-hole butt-buddy Ben Rhodes, belong in the adjoining cells.

To me, this is an even bigger story than the FBI had documents detailing the Russian bribery for uranium and I think that's a huge story.

Trey Gowdy put his name on it, so this isn't sources say, this is a named source making the claim so that gives it at least some credence.

Every single thing we tin foil hat wearers shrieked about the power of the government to surveil Americans is true and I am sure it's worse than we know.

And. Nothing. Will. Happen.

207 As to why there is such a feeding frenzy going in the entertainment biz going on right now - in my view, that is one of the most "entertaining" parts of this whole biz.

The left, and the media, spent years and years building up a system, and a mindset, of emotionalism and instant gratification, along with a hypersensitivity to real or perceived Crimes against Wymyns (and others of course)

We'll probably never know the machinations that finally got Farrow's piece published and which brought Weinstein down, but it's safe to say that whoever was behind that was sure it was just going to be one no-longer-useful ogre who was going to go down, quickly.

Instead - pull one rotten thread out of a rotten old sweater, and the whole thing unravels. Now a full blown preference cascade has started, and there's no power on earth that can stop it. The traits it would take to stem the mob mentality going on are exactly the things the left has spent years breeding out of all of its supporters.

Not that any of them anymore are introspective enough to stop and think "hey, we may have made a mistake somewhere along the line.?

There is nothing that can be said on the day or so soon after that heals - but the memory of that touch and whatever words spoken will be a balm in the future. The problem here is that the left hears a dog whistle when words like duty, honor and country are spoken instead of a mantle of comfort from a grateful nation and her leader.

237 "223 Remember when the Left made fun of Mike Pence for never meeting with a woman alone? "

I will always believe that the true reason the journalistic left was so "outraged" by that was because they knew that they could not dig up any dirt on Pence at all - they had tried, and failed. So their best hope at manufacturing a "scandal" was to have one of their women meet with him, alone, and then make lurid public accusations as to what happened. It would've been a he-said, she-said story that wouldn't stand up to legal scrutiny, but it still would have provided them with a great pile of innuendo that they could use to write slanderous articles about for years.

But Pence figured out the games of people like that years ago, and he won't play them. And that's why they're so mad. All they can do now is say "i hate him i hate him i hate him" and they can never even articulate a reason why.

The only "quotes" of what Trump said are just the hostile idiot Democrat's version of what was said. Obviously in five minutes a lot more was said.

"Knew what he signed up for" actually emphasizes the bravery of the man ... he didn't get killed in a car accident, he was killed risking his life (deliberately) for his country. I'd bet that was actually coached for Trump, as a standard recognition of the man's service ... his volunteer willingness to take the risk. That is a patriot.

Rep Wilson with her stupid red cowboy hat is no American cowboy/patriot, she's a Dem hater liar opportunist. Why was she even there listening in on the personal call? Obviously for the chance to trash Trump. Democrats and the media that spread their propaganda are vile and anti-America.

I came across an alleged Lincoln story a while back, which doesn't sound like him, but here it is:

He was at a charity auction and was told by the pretty girl at the booth that a ticket was a dollar. He paid, and then reached out to pat her chest.

"What are these, my dear?" he asked.

Flustered, the girl replied, "Those are my breasts, Mister Lincoln."

"Ah, I see,"
the Great Emancipator nodded. "Everything is so high here, I thought they might be your buttocks."

You forget, he already walked out on his First family years ago, just so that he could round up the money to be IN Washington.

The only purpose of the second family was to provide him with the financial status to stay in Washington. He got a big inherited fortune; she got a name that at the time was a little more honorable than the name of the gun runner to the indians and later booze runner to the reservations that she was born with.

Um, no. You are way off on this one. First, he has not been "charged" with anything. An accusation has been made. I doubt that the woman in question has even contacted the authorities, because what she is accusing him of is not criminal. What she is alleging is sexual harassment, NOT sexual assault. At most, she could potentially bring a civil suit against him, which she has not done.

The ONT couldn't have said it better Duke.


*****

It works for guns. It should work for drones as well. Moar drone control is necessary.

Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau said he's "extremely preoccupied" by an incident that saw a small drone collide with a passenger airplane above Jean Lesage airport in Quebec City on Thursday.

"This should not have happened. That drone should not have been there," he said,

Garneau confirmed that the aircraft, a Skyjet plane, only sustained minor damage and said he was relieved that no one was hurt.

He said that "it could have been much more serious" and that if the drone had collided with the cockpit or the engine, the incident could have been "catastrophic.


Actually in Canada all you have to do is ask nicely. They'll put the drones away.

How to get yourself in a world of trouble at the company's Christmas Party. How to make the perfect Gin & Tonic.

“In Spain, gin-tonic is not just a cocktail, 
it is an obsession,” says José Andrés. Here’s everything you need to know to nail this iconic drink at home—and six places in the States with excellent G&T options.

*****


What goes up must come down out.

Being an adult means learning that love can hurt from time to time. For Emma, a student teacher from Wales in the United Kingdom, that lesson was discovered the hard way.

When she and her boyfriend, Lee, were… ahem… getting intimate one night, they decided to kick things up a notch and introduce a sex toy. One thing led to another, and the sex toy in question seemingly disappeared.

Obviously, these two never learned the definition of modesty.

*****


Sometimes a man has to do what a man has to do.

A British man said he hid in the woods for 10 years to escape his wife.

Malcolm Applegate, 62, said he left his wife after she continued to argue with him over his increased work hours as a gardener, The Daily Mail reported.

“For three years it was alright, we got on with one another and the gardening got too much for her,” Applegate said.

Oral sex. And the spread of HPV.

The most common sexually transmitted infection is becoming even more widespread in part thanks to the rise in popularity of oral sex.

From 2011 to 2014, the number of men with an oral HPV infection rose from one in 13 US men in 2012 to to one in nine, or about 11 million in total, in 2014. Roughly 7.3% of these cases were “high-risk” strains that have been known to lead to cancer.

Recently The ONT covered the outrageous IRS no-bid contract to Equifax. Equifax loses no-bid contract.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Monday rejected Equifax's bid to retain its $7.25 million "taxpayer identity" contract—the one awarded days after Equifax announced it had exposed the Social Security numbers and other personal data of some 145 million people.


After second bungle, IRS suspends Equifax’s “taxpayer identity” contract
At its core, the Equifax-IRS ordeal reveals the strangeness of the government contacting system. That's because Equifax wasn't even originally chosen to continue its contract with the IRS's Secure Access online program, which enables taxpayers to store and retrieve online tax records. But because Equifax protested when the agency gave the contract to rival Experian for a fraction of the cost, the IRS said contracting rules demanded that it offer a "bridge" contact to Equifax until the GAO sorts out the protest.

Women like recipes. Women like religion. Women like porn. A woman of ISIS likes all three.

Airwars, an organization that tracks and monitors coalition airstrikes against ISIS, notes that in the month of August, the U.S.-led coalition hit Raqqa with more than 5,000 bombs, shells, and missiles—that would be one every eight minutes. Despite the chaos unraveling around her, she was still taking to the internet to watch endless amounts of U.S. war footage.

The hard drive is loaded with more than a terabyte of pornography. Titles include everything from “enjoy first time sex” to “make him your teacher.” There are regular visits to the pornographic site RedTube, too.
But for all the pornography, there is no lack of piety. She repeatedly tunes in to lectures by jihadist clerics linked to Islamic State and al Qaeda, figures such as the American, Anwar al Awlaki, and Hossam Abdul Raouf.

*****

Walruses. It's about time the judiciary got out of the wildlife business. Leave the experts decide which species is endangered.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regularly considers adding animals that are considered to be especially vulnerable to extinction to the endangered species list, and many ecologists are upset that 25 American creatures, particularly the Pacific walrus, didn’t make the cut this year.

Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham jokes can write themselves.


*****


Technology for law enforcement. First it was the dash cam. Then the body cam. Now the gun cam.

A small number of police departments are showing interest in a new type of video camera that can be mounted directly on officers' guns, saying it may offer a better view of officer-involved shootings than body cameras. Some law enforcement officials and civil rights groups are skeptical.

Among the cons, they point out, is that gun cameras start recording only after weapons are removed from holsters and won't capture what led to officers drawing their guns, or other interactions with the public. They also say they should be used only as a complement to body cameras.

The Gin and Tonic is not a froo froo Spanish cocktail It is a man's drink. Manly men!

four ounces of good gin
1/2 of a lime, cut into quarters
seven ounces of a good tonic (the article got that correct)
Lots of fresh, clean American ice

Muddle the lime into the bottom of a large glass. I use a 16 ounce water glass.

Pour the gin into the glass and swirl

Pour the tonic gently down the side, conserving the fizz

Add the ice.

Drink.

33 Baby Sister Update

From dear friend Jessica B:

"Greeting Joyce fans! Sunday was a funner than usual swim day. She chatted up a storm with a new mer-friend while she walked her water laps and I swam mine. After those laps, Joyce swam several assisted laps with her body fully extended in the water, something she has a tendency to shy away from but once she thinks through the BODY ALINGMENT and the COORDINATION of her MOTOR SKILLS she swims along saying "Thank you.... Thank you... Thank you... My body feels great! Thank you!"

We finished our swim with a (lengthy) series of aqua stretches. Something new we've added to our repertoire of ballet type stretches is one I'll call the knee hug. Standing facing the pools side and holding it for stability we stand on one foot (the left foot) and gently raise the right knee straight up towards the right shoulder. Once we've reached the full extension of that effort we embrace our knee in the crook of our right arm and gently pull our knee towards our chest (the hug) then gently leaning forward with our necks to touch our chin to our uplifted knee. Once again this was something that at first Joyce questioned me with her hesitation (and a 'look') but once she acknowledged the step-by-step process and gave herself credit for the achievement, I sensed that she was thrilled to, in fact -acknowledge, still having control of her thought process and body. By the third and fourth knee hug Joyce not only was she executing the movement with perfection, strength, range and control but she was once again saying, "Thank you...."

Something I've noticed... With exception to discomfort in her right arm (something we're working on) Joyce is regaining awareness and mobility of her right side (motors) ... Instinctively. Our spa time was time well spent as usual and the perfect refreshment and end to our day was, back at her house, a cold beer with Hubby while I clobbered her in a card game of gin.

Just for fun, please go to a secure location; a door jam, a wall, a sturdy table top... and attempt the knee hug. Please keep in mind Joyce's efforts and remind yourselves that in life that it's really the network of meaningful little things that sometime achieve the most important goals. ....Hugs"

Whew - Thank You, Jess!

[Horde: To my fellow Hordelings, thank you all in advance for your prayers and well-wishes for my sister and her family]

From 2011 to 2014, the number of men with an oral HPV infection rose from one in 13 US men in 2012 to to one in nine, or about 11 million in total, in 2014. Roughly 7.3% of these cases were high-risk strains that have been known to lead to cancer.

84 One of the down sides of working in a hospital X-ray film library (back in the mists of time before the current digital age) was that sometimes you pulled X-rays that were disturbing. Not just the spine with plates and what looked like woodscrews, and not the rods and chips and fragments.

One was a series of pelvic shots that showed . . . Something. I showed it to the guy next to me pulling x-rays from another case and asked what he thought it was, and he said, "some sort of surgical appliance"
I looked again and said, "No, those are C-cell batteries" and then looked at other pelvic shots and said, "and apparently this is a different model, must be a resistant learner."

In short, Anal plugs are contoured special to not get lost easily. Don't mix tools and jobs.

I just heard from OregonMuse's son, who tells me that his father is comfortable with sharing some details of his temporary hiatus from AoSHQ.

Several days ago OM fell and dislocated and broke his shoulder. Ouch! The catalyst was a medical issue that has been identified and will be managed. Luckily, OregonMuse seems to have married quite well (and above his station) and his wife sprang into action and got him squared away.

I always thought she was hot, back in the, what was it, "King of Queens" days?

Then, for some reason, I happened to catch her on some reality show about her and her fiance or new husband or somesuch who seemed like a really nice guy, very handsome, I'm recalling maybe hispanic-ish (no idea how I even saw it, musta just been on in the background and I left it on because of her)...and the episode was about her wanting to get pregnant. The doctor told her that they needed to be getting busy and having THE SEX so many times per week/day during the fertile period, and she fucking rolled her eyes and mouthed something really snarky and nasty.

And that killed that fantasy. What a nasty piece of work. Not only to be that way about it, but doing so in front of her husband, and on camera to be played, and not even thinking twice about it, her first instinct was to just blurt out how much of a bother it was for everybody in earshot. What a fucking cold, miserable fish. Poor fucking guy.

182 Samantha Power. Paraphrased. 'Most of the unmasking requests made under my name were not made by me.'

http://tinyurl.com/ycoo6omv

This gets even worse. The unmasking of names is supposed to be done by a small group who have the authority to do it. If others were given the ability to unmask in the name of one of the principals then there is no real limit on how many people could unmask the incidentals collected. And no way to know who they are.

Obama greatly expanded the number of people who could access, on an ipad or such, anywhere, the Presidential Daily Brief which is classified at the highest level. The unmasked names would be in this electronic document. Were all the 30+ people who got the Brief authorized to use the name of a principal to unmask? Were even more people? For either access to the Brief or to do unmaskings?

Hillary sacrificed all national security to hide corrupt financial dealings enriching her. Did Obama sacrifice national security to do political warfare using national intelligence agencies as his witting or unwitting dupes?

187 If I recall correctly, that picture of Winnie was unusual in that the photographer snatched his cigar away from him and snapped the shutter at the same time.

An interesting story, during World War II he was getting ready to sail back to England when he happened to see one of those flying boats (PBY?) and struck up a conversation with the pilot "a man of good quality", and started asking about the range and such. So he decides to fly back. Well they got a little off the beam, and were nearly shot down as enemy aircraft.

In fairness there was some difference prior to the availability of the pill and condoms.

225 I've given this a lot of thought, and I need to vent.

Regarding the "#MeToo" movement...

Bollox. Not "you too." At least, not in most cases. When the guy "didn't get the hint" after asking you out 8 times - because you kept saying "Sorry, I'm busy" instead of "No, Milton, I don't want to date you," that wasn't sexual harassment. Neither was the time the the creepy/nerdy IT guy looked at you from across the Christmas party (with Open Bar(TM)!).

When you went to that party and you ended up sleeping with the guy because he kept saying "pretty please" and telling you that "if you really love me, you'll have sex with me?" That wasn't coerced sex - not in the way you'd like us to believe.

When you both got drunk and had sex, and then he (or she) wasn't as good looking once the alcohol wore off - that wasn't rape. Neither was the time you had sex with that guy and only later found out he was kind of stalker-ish and creepy.

You see, harassment, coerced sex, and rape are real things that have affected real people. You attempting to claim their victim status because human beings are sexual creatures and will often be awkward in the pursuit of, or make bad choices because of, sex is gross. It demeans their real experiences - their real victimization - just so you can feel morally superior.

Stop it.

I have been lectured for the last several days - a week maybe? - that I am partly to blame simply for being a man. That any "unwanted" look, comment, or question is "sexual violence." I have been told to do anything other than humbly and mutely accept my status as The Evil Other is, itself, and act of sexual violence.

All the while, instead of finding the actual cretins who would dare actually violate the sanctity of a woman's body, you (oh, "#MeToo"-er) have been muddying the water and actually reducing the horror with which these actual monsters can be seen. Because everyone has a father, most have brothers, male cousins, uncles, nephews, and even male friends. And if all of these - who they love and know would never "purposefully" engage in violence against women - if all of these are guilty simply because they are male? Well, then, maybe everyone else is just like them - and not really all that bad.

Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton, Roman Polanski, and others are evil. What they did was evil. They deserve to be kicked out of the human race for what they did. But we can't do that if we're too busy blaming "all men" for what those - and those actually like them - have done.

And most heterosexuals who contracted AIDs were either junkies or can be traced back to anal sex, women with bisexual guys and then other guys having anal sex with her.

But, since the beginning of AIDs research into anal sex and transmission has been, pretty much, verboten. For something like the first twenty years you couldn't find a single study on anal sex and AIDs transmission, but you could find tons of studies and articles claiming that it was a regular, run-of-the-mill heterosexual disease that was going to kill us all ... because it had absolutely nothing to do with homosexuality.

258 This is a truly dark day for America's imperiled wildlife. You couldn't ask for a clearer sign that the Trump administration puts corporate profits ahead of protecting endangered species. The Pacific walrus, Florida Keys mole skink, eastern boreal toad and 22 other species are now one step closer to extinction. We're going to challenge as many of these bogus findings as we can."

Bleah. Consider the case of Kate Steinle. Democrats and GOPers put corporate profits and political power ahead of protecting HUMAN lives of American citizens. All the walruses in the world are not as valuable as one human life. These people are such vile, hypocritical pukes. Intolerably stupid pieces of excrement.

260 Heterosexuals rarely have anonymous, unprotected sex with hundreds of people in their life times.

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

I had an eye opener about this when I learned women have ten times the risk of contracting HIV (or something along those lines) than men do. Men could plug 10 HIV infected women in a row and not get the plague.

Oddly enough i learned all this at a law enforcement seminar, whereas prior to that my high school education taught me I'd get AIDS if I sneezed on a girl.

273 192 Baby killer Patrick Tomlinson made a big Twatter splash today with his thought experiment about a fire in an artificial insemination clinic. You can either save 1000 fertilized embryos or a five year old boy. If you pick the boy, it means you know the embryos aren't alive or aren't human or something. If you could either save a five year o!d or a ninety-five year old and you choose the five year old it means great grandpa wasn't alive or wasn't human or something.

The scientific/medical literature does point out the high risk of anal sex. The media just doesn't want to talk about.

IIRC, the probability of HIV transmission is 18x for "catching" in the butt than catching in the vagina.

Now, going the other way, the "pitcher's" chances are much lower than either, but nonetheless sticking up the Solo is still more risky than Ms. Happy.

Well, since I have never before heard of the Florida Keys mole skink, or the Eastern Boreal Toad, they may as well go extinct. Clearly, they are obscure species of little value to the ecosystem.

And what's the use of having walruses, if you cannot hunt them for their ivory?

279 233,
"And most heterosexuals who contracted AIDs were either junkies or can be
traced back to anal sex, women with bisexual guys and then other guys
having anal sex with her."



It's different in Africa. There is a thing there about having "dry sex" and that activity causes small cuts which give the HIV virus a path to the blood stream just like anal sex does and of course shared needles for IV drugs which go right there directly.
