Yesterday, CNN Opened a Whole New Field of #FakeNews: Fake Remote Medical Diagnosis

Yesterday CNN, a degenerate den of #FakeNews addicts who can't stop sucking the pipe, claimed that Trump definitely had heart disease based on a guideline that "some" cardiologists use to predict future heart disease.

It was typical CNN.

[O]on Wednesday morning Gupta, who did not examine Trump, took Jacksonís data and declared that Trump has heart disease, prompting instant ridicule from people on both sides of the political aisle.


"This is math. This is based on the numbers that Dr. Jackson provided," Gupta said. "The president has heart disease."

After being ridiculed for his remote diagnosis based on a guideline that "some" cardiologists use (why didn't he tell us about the ones that don't use it, and their reasons for not using it?), he seemed to walk this dramatic TV-friendly clickbait claim back into something less juicy.

Gupta eventually followed up his on-air report by doubling down with an article on CNN's website.

"Like most men of his age, President Donald Trump has a common form of heart disease, relatively easy to address if he increases the dose of his cholesterol-lowering medication and makes necessary lifestyle changes," he wrote.

Peter J. Hanson fact-checked Gupta's claims (Note: Gupta is a neurosurgeon, not a cardiologist, and should probably avoid attempting to overrule someone's personal doctor using a fairly esoteric test).

Diagnosis: #FakeNews.

Using the results of Trumpís medical exam from Dr. Jackson, The Daily Caller calculated Trump's risk of heart attack or similar heart disease. According to that algorithm, Trumpís risk from heart attack or other coronary heart disease is just 4.1 percent each year for the next 10 years. (Feel free to replicate our results here.)

Additionally, Trumpís coronary calcium score of 133 is lower than the mean for men his age, according to MESA, making Trumpís score a sign of above average heart health.

CNNís coverage left out those details and cast doubt on Jacksonís confidence in Trump's heart health. The network instead painted a picture where Trump's heart health is of serious concern.

CNN "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota described Trumpís heart health as "troubling" on Wednesday morning. "The president has heart disease. Those numbers qualify him for having heart disease," Gupta agreed, adding that he, too, finds it "concerning."

Trump's better-than-average-for-his-age plaque level? Deeply troubling.

This? Not troubling at all.

Especially by putting your professionalism on the line by giving remote second opinions contrary to what his primary care physician and the govt's doctor have both said?

23 Trump has heart disease ...

sure he has less than most men his age, but still, somewhere in there ... DISEASE ... once cell, ten cells, who knows. Healthier than most his age, but DISEASE is in their somewhere.

Ask Gupta if he has heart disease, by those standards. YES, everyone has SOME heart disease.

clickbait ... the MFM are producing lies, fake memes that they have the power to make go viral.

And half the country has taken those local news readers as their "what is everyone else thinking?" easy route to political opinion.

31 George Washington had early-onset dementia. I know this because sometimes used, highly subjective, criteria applied by certain experts under test circumstances tell us he did. He was demented, which explains (finally!) why he left the Presidency after his second term and did not declare himself King, as most experts then alive expected him to do. Dementia.

The entire American government is highly suspect as a result. Who wants their political life reliant upon a man who couldn't remember his own name?

Apple Says It Will Repatriate $250 Billion to US in Next Five Years, Add 20,000 Jobs in the US

Actually, they say they'll be "contributing" $350 billion ($100 billion more than the $250 billion they have in foreign accounts) to America. They might be talking about another $100 billion in capital investments in the US, plus the impact of adding 20,000 jobs. They might also be contemplating direct donations to charitable causes or starting their own charitable foundation, as some companies have done in the wake of tax reform.

Not sure how they come to that particular $350 billion figure.

But anyway, they're bringing practically all their offshore money into the US, and will wind up paying $38 billion in taxes (to America) for that privilege.

To me, this is history repeating itself. When Reagan was in office things were sometimes really, really great -- sometimes 1,000,000 new jobs were created in a SINGLE MONTH. But later the revisionists took aim and decided the 'good times' were unfair. Because some people took the jobs, and some people said, 'F__k Reagan' and sat on their asses.

Expect history to repeat. The people who choose not to avail themselves of employment opportunities will be be pissed at Trump. But of course.

TRUMP ECONOMY RESPONSIBLE FOR UNREGULATED WEIGHT LOSS!

Posted by: rickb223 at January 18, 2018 03:47 PM (pREVk)

236 I've posted this elsewhere, but I'll do it again here. These big announcements are the tip of the iceberg. I'm Canadian, I've worked for manufacturing companies, now I'm with an accounting firm. All of my manufacturing experience was with companies that made stuff in Canada and shipped most of it to the US. Some of those companies opened plants in Mexico to save on labour, I know of some others that tried that and came back because it was just too difficult for small companies to deal with Mexico BS. Recently idiot Trudeau made some tax changes that will greatly affect small and medium sized business owners negatively. Now Trump has done the opposite in the US. The accounting firm I work for has for years had a 'product' they use to help small business owners with retirement, to either sell or pass the business to their kids and avoid excess costs with that process. Now I just received an email from a partner saying they are modifying this product because of the sudden uptick of Canadian business owners who want to sell or move their business to the US. 1000's small businesses > big companies.

I was told that one too (specifically, it would only help those in the stock market), by an intelligent, well-educated guy whom I've previously thought was conservative. And I answered exactly as you did: maybe people have figured out that the tax bill will supercharge the economy, and that that will ultimately help them, whether or not they have holdings in the stock market.

But even if they're low end call center jobs, that creates pressure on the bottom of the labor market.

If, say, we had natural restrictions on the supply of labor (ahem, immigration), and a huge demand for "low end" labor, what would then be expected to happen?

High demand, constrained supply... why, that should mean increases in wages, shouldn't it? Isn't that what the left is always yammering on about? Burger flippers should make $15 an hour?

Well, the quickest fucking way to make that happen is if the labor market is constrained to the point of companies essentially bidding against each other for "minimum wage" job seekers.

300 The Democrats are desperately trying to keep the tax withholding tables from being updated before the midterms, so voters don't find out how much they are saving.

The D's are using the argument that given the changes in the tax law, people's circumstances can differ, so some people might be under withheld if you use the standard withholding tables. (This has always been true, of course.)

Of course, the Treasury can get the numbers right in aggregate - but the D's are **so** concerned that there are a few people who might get under withheld.

I don't know about the 200 free food thing, or how it has changed since Oprah, but growing up I know it helped people lose weight and keep it off. In fact, it was the only thing.

My mother struggled with her weight, and it was only thing that worked. She never let us kids eat sugar, and between that and genetics we are all slim. Though this cold winter has me putting on some poundages. But I think she went too far on the sugar thing. No cookies and milk after school. No desserts after dinner. I would never go that far. We were really active kids, and it would 't have hurt us. But I'm getting off topic.

Yeah. Jobs was personally seemingly somewhat of a liberal, but he was fundamentally opposed to DC getting involved in his business and was way more resistant than most of the Silicon Valley to playing the DC game. He had several opportunities to try use govt against competitors, and he did not. (for example, when there were rumblings of anti trust litigation against MSFT back in the '90s)

I think there is still some of that in the Apple corporate culture.

And once again I will remind JackStraw that the filibuster rule can be changed by a simple majority vote. Ergo, it is false to say the budget "takes 60 votes" as if that is some immutable law handed down from God. The only way it takes 60 is if the Republicans WE voted into office allow it to take 60.

Cops Raid #FakeNews Clickbait Webzine Newsweek?

So claims an site called TheOutline.com, which I've read occasionally for opinion. I don't know how strong their reportage side is.

More than a dozen police showed up this morning at the office that serves as the shared headquarters for Newsweek magazine and IBT Media, which rebranded in 2017 as Newsweek Group, according to multiple sources who were present.

The reason for the visit was not clear, but one employee said police were taking photos of the company's servers...

The NYPD said the officers weren't theirs. The Manhattan DA declined to comment, the article says.

By the way, "News"week put out a clickbait article claiming that, based on a claim that Trump takes some medication for his hair, that means he might, maybe, possibly be impotent.

Yup.

Here's what an insider at "News"week has to say about what "News"week has become:



Oh, I forgot, they published this, too.



It's just embarrassing.

And... Newsweek was also the proud originator of yesterday's absurd clickbait claim that noted cuck David French "said" that we shouldn't fear a nuclear strike, because it would only kill minorities and Democrats.

"This is one way it could happen," Lessig said. "But that's very different from saying I think it will happen, or should happen, or [that] the evidence is there for it to happen."

Since the essay was published, there hasn't been "any evidence that's come out that's resolved the question, whether there was some conspiracy to steal the election," the professor said.

"I don't feel that we've seen anything that increases that probability," he added.

171 50 years ago there were three weekly news-magazines. Newsweek was on the left. Time was the establishment middle. U.S. News and World Report leaned right. All that has happened as has happened to the general media and politics is that what the middle is has become to the left of where Newsweek was then.

All others have followed along as if they are all in a chain gang. The far left SJWs are on horseback with mirror shades and shotguns.

No Federal agency which is not primarily a law enforcement agency should have any weapons or armed employees whatsoever.

If the IRS or EPA or BLM needs to do an armed raid they should call up the US Marshals or the FBI.

Senior Policy Adviser to Senator Patty Murray: "This Office Does Not Care About Anti-Semitism"

I'm totes surprised to see the left accommodating itself to the rampant antisemitism found in third world shitholes.

Elizabeth Harrington for the Free Beacon:


A senior policy adviser to Democratic senator Patty Murray (Wash.) said her office in the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions does "not care about anti-Semitism," according to two people who attended the meeting.

The HELP committee is currently weighing the nomination of Ken Marcus as assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education. Marcus has been the target of an aggressive campaign waged by leading anti-Israel groups seeking to derail his nomination. Marcus has worked to combat the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement on college campuses and is the founder of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, a pro-Israel group.

During a meeting on November 28 with Sarah N. Stern, a former colleague of Marcus and president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth, a senior adviser to Murray on the HELP committee told Stern the committee does not "care about anti-Semitism in this office."

"We don't care about anti-Semitism in this office," Murray's senior adviser said. "We care about transgenders, we care about blacks, we care about Hispanics, we care about gays, we care about lesbians, we care about the disabled."

"We don't care about anti-Semitism in this office," he said.

27 If they were really honest they'd admit they don't care about blacks either.

They've already got the money coming in from the anti-Christian set of the Jews - who are all from out of state anyway; and they've got the black vote locked in. As voters both are too small in Washington state to make an electoral difference.

The majority of them voted not once but twice for Obama when all the facts were already out about this "Commander in Chief". Then again the majority of this lot were hoping for a Hillary Clinton victory in November. Never mind that this serial lying woman has as her chief supporters anti-Israel self hating Jews like Sidney Blumenthal and George Soros. Ths woman would, had she won, continued Obama's legacy and pushed Israel under a bus at the first opportunity. When will the majority of this lot ever see the light of day? Thankfully Donald Trump won the Presidency. He has saved the USA from going over a cliff and is the leader who will restore pride and respect towards the USA worldwide.

Democrats loved Jews when they were on their knees and beaten down In fact, they only love people who need help desperately. It's a sick sort of power play.

Since the political assassination of Joe Lieberman and the elevation of Al Sharpton (the architect of the Crown Heights pogrom) to personal White House advisor under Obama, many American Jews woke up to fact that they were bowing and scraping to some pretty ugly people.

It's no surprise Murray and her cabal of bigots are anti-Semitic. It's just a surprise that they took off the mask.

321 I think Ace's post yesterday is a good stab at why Jews still vote left - it's because of social standing, not politics.

I think most Jews - at least the ones I know - are deft enough to realize that the left no longer politically supports them. But we're also more likely to be a part of those social circles where holding heterodox views can get you named, shamed, and ostracized - or even fired.

Of course, the wrench in that particular argument is - why follow through at the ballot box? Your vote is, in theory, a black box. You can still parrot leftist talking points while voting for conservative candidates. Of course, politics is about more than just the vote - it's about advocacy and money.

339 I don't know if this has been covered yet, but not many Americans have really taken the time to understand the divisions in current Judaism. They are not just religious but political, as of course everything is political these days.

There are 3 primary divisions of Judaism today: Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform.

Dispense with the "Conservative" faction first, they are not "conservative" at all, more like center left, and they have taken the same path as most of the mainline protestant churches over the last 60 years - diluting and diluting their beliefs until almost nothing is left. They are diminishing rapidly, again like the main line Protestant Churches are. At least they do still claim to believe in some kind of God, but that's the most you can say for them. In the 70's they made up 41% of American Jews, but today that number is 18% and dropping.

The "Orthodox" are the true conservatives, and includes many sub-groups. They are the most fervently pro-Israel faction, and tend to be truly conservative politically as well. A devout Orthodox Jew and a devout Christian are usually amazed at how much they have in common with each other. The Orthodox make up between 13% and 27% of American Jews, depending on the survey being referenced. They are growing rapidly.

The Reformed Judaism movement, centered in North America and the largest Jewish denomination in America is the source of most of the trouble. They self identify as "jewish" but if you ask a reform Jew what he believes about God he'll tell you it's a nice story that gives people tips on how to live together. Their only real god is Government, and they are even coming to reject Israel itself more every day, as Israel moves away from their beloved socialist goals.

In relations between the 3 groups, the Reform movement and the Orthodox despise and loathe each other, while the Conservatives play the part of the worn out old drunk slumped in his chair slurring the words "oh whyyy cant we all just get along???"

Of Course: Hillary Clinton Hatchet-Man Sydney Blumenthal Was "Interviewed," For Some Reason, by the FBI In Connection With the Fake "Steele" Dossier

What if it wasn't the Steele Dossier? What if it was the Blumenthal Dossier with Steele's name on it to make it stink less of self-interest?

Pure speculation on my part. But Blumenthal was being paid $10,000 per month by the Clinton Foundation as a "consultant" -- including running a "private intelligence network" along with a former CIA officer named Drumheller.

I'd like to know why, exactly, the FBI thought they needed to interview Sidney Blumenthal about this dossier which I'm sure he had nothing to do with.

Sidney Blumenthal, a former journalist and a close friend of Clinton, was interviewed by the FBI in 2016 regarding the dossier that alleged Trump colluded with Russia, the sources stated. Department of Justice officials, however, declined to comment on Blumenthal or the dossier.

FBI officials declined to comment.

Blumenthal did not return a phone call seeking comment.

And "Sid Vicious" was one of the most ferociously conspiratorial of the Clinton partisans:

After the 2016 presidential election, Blumenthal told Dutch TV Nieuwsuur that Clinton's loss to Trump "was the result of a cabal of right-wing agents of the FBI in the New York office attached to Rudy Giuliani, who was a member of Trump's campaign."

"I think it's not unfair to call it a coup," said Blumenthal.

"A coup, even?" the reporter said.

Blumenthal added, "yeah, a coup d'etat."

A theory is starting to form in my head: Hillary's team cooked up the Dossier and attempted to get an FBI file opened on Trump after the email investigation into Hillary began -- so that she could say "It's not just me being investigated, it's both of us. You mean, wipe with the cloth?"

And of course Comey's FBI went along.

15 I don't believe there is any question Blumenthal was involved. He has often boasted of his connections to various intelligence agencies around the world and access to top secret information. He's a natural starting point for the people from Fusion and this scheme is typical of his operations.

The plan was to indeed get people within the FBI to open up a case, then pursue surveillance as a means of spying. Blumenthal knew exactly what would be need to do that including the FISA warrant.

I will say it once again, there is a demonstrable, provable conspiracy to use government assets and personnel for political spying.

And if you believe Obama didn't know it was happening, or his AG, think again. This required their involvement.

I'm convinced the First Grifters have only been as successful as they are for as long as they have been because the shifty people in their orbit are the true movers and shakers, and know where all the bodies are buried (probably having put some in the ground themselves). If nothing else, Trump is helping to bring it all crumbling down and I could not be more grateful to him for that.

And deep down in our hearts, we KNOW nothing is ever going to happen. Investigations will be had, press conferences will be made, talking points played to the party faithful. But nobody goes to jail. Nobody even gets a trial or even arrested. And our Republic will continue to edge closer and closer to the precipice like Thelma Louise's car.

Close... but add a layer...

Hillary and Obama people in the FBI already had an investigation on Trump going... but could not get a warrant... FISA had turned them down (once of only 4 ever turned down, out of hundreds).

We KNOW that Steele had contact with the FBI, and was given information by them.

The Dossier was written, bought, and paid for, to give the FBI 'probable' cause because the FISA court had already turned them down once.

And it worked... they got their warrant.

62 I think the reason for interviewing Blumenthal may be to give him a heads up on how much trouble he might be in.

From following Sundance at CTH, I have the impression that there are two teams involved. Trump's team and the Deep State. So far Trump's team has been making steady progress and the enemy is being pushed back. There are a very small number of people (Rosenstein is one) to which it is very difficult to assign a team.

And of course Comey's FBI went along.

Exactly. I've seen on the internet (so, who knows if its true) that her boss Susan Rice would have had to sign off of these. So...yeah, it was probably Rice forging Power's name and then "approving" the requests. That would be a credible explanation for why Power doesn't seem all that concerned about this, too, eh?

Close... but add a layer...

Hillary and Obama people in the FBI already had an investigation on Trump going... but could not get a warrant... FISA had turned them down (once of only 4 ever turned down, out of hundreds).

We KNOW that Steele had contact with the FBI, and was given information by them.

The Dossier was written, bought, and paid for, to give the FBI 'probable' cause because the FISA court had already turned them down once.

And it worked... they got their warrant.

We know from the FISA court decision regarding abuse of FISA "about" queries used to spy on Americans that was released in April of 2017, unexpectedly, no really FISA court decisions are rarely unclassified and released but this one was, that the Obama administration was abusing he process for years, likely since the beginning of the first term.

We also know that there were "private contractors" who were given access to raw intel in violation of the law.

Given the tight ties between Fusion and certain DOJ personnel it wouldn't surprise me in the least if at least one of those private contractors was Fusion GPS. I also wouldn't be surprised if they basically wrote the dossier.

Major development in House Intel Committee after vote to release Glenn Simpson transcript. Rep Peter King offered motion to allow all House members to review a brief report summarizing committee investigation into what is called FISA abuse.
The motion was passed with a party line vote. Every Dem voted against it. IMO its clear that the Simpson testimony is what the Dems wanted released, not the summary of the House Intel Committee investigation into FISA abuse. Everyone in the House knows that they leak like a sieve and the last thing the Dems want is a damaging FISA abuse summary getting out.

168 I would not be surprised at all to see Sid Blumenthal quite deeply involved in all this. He's been the Clintons' hatchet man for ages.

Posted by: Insomniac - mostly stable at January 18, 2018 12:27 PM (NWiLs)

169 After the 2016 presidential election, Blumenthal told Dutch TV Nieuwsuur that Clinton's loss to Trump "was the result of a cabal of right-wing agents of the FBI in the New York office attached to Rudy Giuliani, who was a member of Trump's campaign."

"I think it's not unfair to call it a coup," said Blumenthal.

"A coup, even?" the reporter said.

Blumenthal added, "yeah, a coup d'etat."

Remember - what they accuse us of is what they are guilty of. That's always been their M.O. If he says the FBI conspired to install Trump, then he's admitting that's what happened to attempt to prevent his election.

185 The sheer scope of the conspiracy and corruption is the greatest difficulty in getting the American people to understand it and demand that every last rascal be put in PMITA Federal prison.

There is the fundamental campaign/election law violation and charity fraud throughout the Clinton Foundation that has illegally funded the political ambitions of Machine Clinton for years. There was illegal (true) collusion, or coordination between the DNC and the Hillary campaign to evade election law donor limits. There was illegal leaking from FBI and Justice in the service of Clinton Inc. There was abuse of office by Power, Rhodes and the JEF In Chief in illegally unmasking information on a private citizen, itself gathered by a sham FISA warrant.

All this mirrored by the non-prosecution by FBI and Justice of clearly criminal conduct by Madame Clinton in terms of the Espionage Act, at a minimum, and the active cover up by the FBI in rewriting its non-prosecution memos well prior to gathering the facts.

I know for a fact that Shoutin' Trey Gowdy doesn't have the chops to get this across. He's essentially an ADD loudmouth in my opinion who was the beneficiary of the normal advantages of a prosecutor to garner a "high conviction rate" without actually being able to explain things to people.

Will Snoozy Sessions at some point (when all the radioactive "recusal" dust settles) announce a series of prosecutions in a well articulated press conference? I actually believe he could be one of the more effective messengers, but I have no idea if he has the inclination or drive to do it.

We have all the dots, and in a little more time there should be a wealth of evidence. What we need is a Great Explainer.

While I agree with this, losing a job for speaking out of turn is a powerful motivation to remain silent, I have a gnawing feeling that Trump and Sessions are doing exactly what needs to be done to crush the Clintons, the Obamas and their diseased acolytes and sponsors.

A comment I read last night, suggested that Trump's success comes from his DGAF attitude and not from some grand strategic plan. I believe the opposite. Jeff aka Sleepy or the Silent Assassin Sessions could not start his tenure with the broad and public investigation of Hillushery. That smacks of 3rd World despotism, and no better than Obama's abuse of power. Better to let the case unfold under its own momentum. Then the AG will act, when he has "no option" rather than by a perceived act of revenge.

President Trump for his part adds to the offensive, placing seemingly random tweets which highlight some of the abuses, getting the media spun up trying to dispute the accusations which will be a lot of fun when all of the furious denials, false "fact checking" and deliberate malfeasance pool on the surface of the draining swamp and even the most ambivalent American is faced with the overwhelming evidence that the magical Obama years were more akin to 8 years in North Korea than being a good period of American life. Just my belief.

Remember last March when Devin Nunes went to the White House SCIF and was shown what he claimed was evidence that various people on Trump's campaign were unmasked and spied on during the campaign and transition?

Schiff then filed his ethics complaint and everyone started focusing on the Mueller investigation and ignoring the much larger investigations being carried out in the House and Senate and by the DOJ OIG.

They have been benefiting greatly from the leaks - not only with ratings, but how many of them are being paid by Fusion GPS to publish the leaks?
When you look at the money that Hillary, the DNC and Obama paid Fusion GPS it becomes obvious that this wasn't just for dossier research.

I always thought that this would be a key pressure point. Theree must be documents with her name on them that requested the unmaskings. If she denies their authenticity, the investigators should see who actually did it, and, if Power can't/won't point to that individual and accuse, implicate and testify against their unauthorized use of her name to request unmaskings, then prosecute Power since she won't refute the documents in court.

259 That would be nice if the dossier could be traced back to the Clinton camp itself. But the FBI may merely have interviwed him because they knew the Clinton campaign paid Fusion, and wanted to check with Blumenthal in that capacity.

Would he have had access to the information in the dossier, tepid as it was? "On such and such a date, Trump ate borscht in a Moscow diner...", etc. Maybe he just gave vague specs to Steele, who filled in th details.

286 omment I read last night, suggested that Trump's success comes from his DGAF attitude and not from some grand strategic plan. I believe the opposite. Jeff aka Sleepy or the Silent Assassin Sessions could not start his tenure with the broad and public investigation of Hillushery. That smacks of 3rd World despotism, and no better than Obama's abuse of power. Better to let the case unfold under its own momentum. Then the AG will act, when he has "no option" rather than by a perceived act of revenge.

President Trump for his part adds to the offensive, placing seemingly random tweets which highlight some of the abuses, getting the media spun up trying to dispute the accusations which will be a lot of fun when all of the furious denials, false "fact checking" and deliberate malfeasance pool on the surface of the draining swamp and even the most ambivalent American is faced with the overwhelming evidence that the magical Obama years were more akin to 8 years in North Korea than being a good period of American life. Just my belief.

To ax is to answer.

I'm certain that someone somewhere is keeping track of all the violations (both legal and policy-wise) vs who's getting punished.

So far, there's one sailor in jail for taking a picture on a sub. Other than that, I can't think of anyone else, even after Jim Comey laid out all of Her Heinous' illegal actions.

I sure hope this is playing out as someone mentioned upthread where Sessions couldn't be seen going after Her Heinous immediately after PDT's election because that'd look pretty third-world-ish to Progda even though real, live, very serious laws were broken.

317 Sid Vicious as the author is not far fetched. Steele was only paid $128k for the dossier. That seems really cheap unless all he did was be the delivery boy.

First, you must be able to name the enemy. It's kind of like the Islamic terrorism thing. If you can't say it, you can't beat it.

Second, leaders set priorities, and they do so by announcing what they are, acting in ways that align with those.

If you have some big secret behind the scenes thing, it isn't a priority.

A slam dunk case that should include some prison time, and yet no boot on her very long neck? Why?



To ax is to answer.



I'm certain that someone somewhere is keeping track of all the
violations (both legal and policy-wise) vs who's getting punished.



So far, there's one sailor in jail for taking a picture on a sub.
Other than that, I can't think of anyone else, even after Jim Comey laid
out all of Her Heinous' illegal actions.



I sure hope this is playing out as someone mentioned upthread where
Sessions couldn't be seen going after Her Heinous immediately after
PDT's election because that'd look pretty third-world-ish to Progda even
though real, live, very serious laws were broken.

357 Read TrumpSoldier@DaveNYviii , the DOJ Nat Security Division was spying on Trump during the entire campaign.
As were a cabal of people in the FBI.
The dossier was created by Fusion, NOT Steele. The dossier contained some truths from the illegal surveillance, but mostly lies and impossible to verify claims. Some came from Steele, but most were from Fusion. The most likely explanation for the confusion over what Michael Cohen was in Prague was they did a query of the wrong Cohen.
The dossier was used as justification for the FISA court, but it was really fig leaf.
Hastly written, full of easy to determine errors like Alfa Bank (Russia) being misnamed and other errors.
This was 100% Clinton inspired.

"Did you know that New York City actually has laws that limit the size of the soft drinks you can purchase? So when the progressives are all out there chanting "my body my choice", it only applies to a woman who wants to murder her unborn child, not if she wants to drink a large Pepsi."

The 45th Annual March for Life is scheduled for tomorrow, January 19th. It will be underreported by the MSM.

abortion free and on demand.jpg

I can understand the argument for abortion on demand. I vehemently disagree with it, but at least it makes a certain amount of sense. But lately I've been noticing the argument has the added adjective 'free' tacked on to the front, which drags economics kicking and screaming into the battle. Because now what they're demanding is quite different. In the old days, the feminists just argued that they want to do it unmolested by the state, but now, in addition to that, they want someone else to pay for it. Because that's what 'free' means. Not that it costs nothing, but that the cost is shifted onto others, i.e. taxpayers.

Which sounds like a hard sell to me. "I want to have sex with whoever I want and if something bad happens, I want YOU to pick up the tab for it." No wonder their side is losing. Nobody wants to pay for someone else's choices.

feminist hypocrite.jpg

Another reason I'm pro-life is that our women are better looking. They're free of tats, scratches, bite-marks, and bizarre diseases. And because they haven't spent most of their lives trying to force their thinking into the bizarre and unnatural mold of progressive ideology, they're mentally in much better shape.

Here's the Cranberries' anti-abortion song, The Icicle Melts:

Doesn't mean sane, rational adults have to go along with it. But our approach seems to have been to try to rationally explain to these perpetual adolescent, everyone-gets-a-trophy kids that's not how the real world works.

Instead I think we ought to take a page out of the Trump/Breitbart playbook and start mocking the fvck out of these kids. Viciously. Until they cry, and then we should mock that they're crying.

Frankly it's that or surrender and as I stand before a barren field in which I grow my fvcks I'm pretty much saying NUTS! to the idea of surrender to these adult babies.

47 Which sounds like a hard sell to me. "I want to have sex with whoever I want and if something bad happens, I want YOU to pick up the tab for it." No wonder their side is losing. Nobody wants to pay for someone else's choices.

========

Liberals always love to drag in third parties. And employers of illegals, too. The state makes up the difference via entitlements of what the employers avoid paying by hiring illegals.

My favorite joke about dragging in a third party:

A big, burly man visited the pastor's home and asked to see the minister's wife, a woman well known for her charitable impulses.

"Madam," he said in a broken voice, "I wish to draw your attention to the terrible plight of a poor family in this district. The father is dead, the mother is too ill to work, and the nine children are starving. They are about to be turned into the cold, empty streets unless someone pays their rent, which amounts to $400."

"How terrible!" exclaimed the preacher's wife. "May I ask who you are?"

The sympathetic visitor applied his handkerchief to his eyes. "I'm the landlord," he sobbed.

66 Fun but sad and true: when you're going through infertility treatments, a really really really insultingly common response is "well, you can always adopt." (Favorite response: "I went to Babies'R'Us and they were all out.")

Except, adoptions are incredibly expensive and painful. If you want an infant, the average wait is between 2 and 5 YEARS and costs around $50,000. You may be able to get a little under 2 with a foster adopt, but there are a whole host of other issues (like they could force you to take any older siblings, regardless of their physical or behavioral health or they could require you to adopt subsequent siblings -- and then there's the risk of losing the kid up to 2 years after adoption if any blood relative decides they want them).

Why is it so difficult? Because of abortion and welfare. Most women kill unwanted babies rather than put them up for adoption, and then welfare makes it easier for single moms.

115 @Lizzy, OMG YES!!!!!! I looked into it, and I can't get a closed adoption (there are very very few attorneys who will even do them any more). Like, they tell you to invite birth parents to birthday parties and school events and keep them actively involved in their kids' lives. I don't mean any offense, but I want *my* family. I don't want to simply fund someone else's family, and that's what these "open" adoptions feel like.

117 Fact- If the developing baby is a growing human being with its owns separate unique DNA it is not a part of its mother it is a human life. Killing this separate and growing human is murder. How could this be any different? A newborn is just as dependent on its mother to live as the unborn is. To kill an newborn baby is seen as murder abortion is not. Why?

As I was typing this it came into my pointy little brain that The difference preborn/newborn is the father. After a baby is born the mother has lost full control and the father has a responsibility. Abortion gives the women power over life and death over everyone. Its all a power struggle.

Same here. It's vile but I cannot get politically riled about it. The GOP preached repeal of Obamacare for 7 years, and welched the moment they had the opportunity to do so. Anyone really believe the GOP would follow through if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Maybe on the state level, in a handful of states. But in general, I don't believe the GOP would follow through. It is happy to feign being pro-life, because there's nothing it can do about it; it can just point and kvetch about "that darned Supreme Court." It's posturing. And I think their would be a pro-choice groundswell if state legislatures suddenly found themselves in the saddle on this issue. Kinda like divorce: conservatives are against it, except the ones who make the laws and the ones who elect them.

I don't want the Federal government involved at all. If the states want to govern abortions, let them. If voters don't like it, change the government.

The Constitution nowhere gives the Feds a role in setting health policy of any kind, much less abortion. Legislating from the SCOTUS bench is a degradation of our Republic. (Rant begins...)

Oh, geez!! From the other perspective: imagine you're a teen who's gotten pregnant, you can abort and be done with it, or you can deliver the baby, hand it over to a family who would love to have the child - and for the rest of your life there is the possibility that the child will find you. Ideally, the mom (and dad, if listed) should want that, but realistically that is not always the case. The mom is then wondering if/when the child will appear in their life and potentially reveal what may have been a closely held secret.

In my hubby's case, he discreetly contacted his birth dad and the guy *freaked out* and was immediately concerned hubby was going to blackmail him or ruin his life because he had never told his wife and kids about his college mistake. It was bananas, and hubby simply asked for medical history and was done with it.

https://tinyurl.com/y9dd843l

Pope Francis has conferred the title of "Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great" on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion.

<snip>

The Order of St Gregory the Great was founded by Pope Gregory XVI in 1831, under the patronage of Pope St Gregory I. It is bestowed on those who have distinguished themselves in public service or given support to the Church.

Sounds pretty exhausting. It's good to have a level of concern, but I guess it would be nice if she said, "That's great. What does she like about it?." I like to watch the little kids getting on and off the bus. It reminds me when my son was that young. They're cute

While there are bad bus drivers-you can tell you mother that they are screened as far as police backgrounds and fingerprints are checked. If my husband is like the rest they take the jobs seriously and it's sometimes quite a job to be watching 30-40 kids on a bus who are sometimes shrieking and also watching the road,

140 This is an adorable image that should appeal to anyone familiar with little girls at that 'all knees and elbows' stage. The soft background of carpet, furniture and plants lets the girl and her fancy white clothes really stand out, which keeps the viewer's focus where it belongs. Notice she isn't smiling but is serious about looking proper for a ballroom dance. And is that a blossom on the plant just above her? Perhaps the first hint that she is growing up or at least becoming aware of growing up?

It made me think of a similar image for little boys. After ball games the Nats let little kids run the bases. The 4 and 5 year olds are so serious and earnest. You know in their minds they have just hit a walk off home run in the last game of the World Series. No adult can look at them, or this little girl, without a gentle smile.

I don't know if the 'ettes will agree with my impression of the painting.

.Yep had a Buddy who got laid off when he hit 55. He got a lawyer and actually won his age discrimination suit in court and walked away with a nice 7 figure award.

Tough to do but his Company got careless over the years thinking they could get away with it because nothing ever happened to them.

I grew up with a boy that "had" to take ballet lessons. He hated it, and
kept it a secret from almost everyone. Later on, in high school, he was
the starting quarterback, and a highly recruited basketball player. His
agility and speed and sure footedness were a marvel. It was those damn
ballet lessons, for sure. Everything else was easy by comparison.

Gene Kelly worked very hard to get more men and boys interested in dance. Even back in his time the art form was starting to be considered a feminine activity, and it was being taken over by women by default. Fewer and fewer boys were taking up dance. He fought really hard against this characterization, and tried to demonstrate to males that dance could be a very demanding and masculine physical activity.

407 Kevin Williamson - I've know a couple of men who grew up in rural America, poor and redneck (Williamson is from Lubbock) who then move to the big city and "make it". They seem to be desperate to impress their new Big City friends by outdoing all of them in their hatred and contempt for the place they came from.

I suspect it's a deep insecurity, a feeling they're really not worth associating with their "betters", that they fear that deep down they're still just the poor redneck kid on the outside looking in. And for an intensely proud man, that feeling is intolerable, so they lash out at their backgrounds - and at themselves.

There was a really good interview of Jamie Foxx on Howard Stern last year.

He's from a Texas town with a racially fraught history and he was a little nervous about coming back to his hometown. A couple of rednecks came up to him in a diner and said "we love you for not saying you're from Houston, you always say you're from Terrell".

My husband hated it. It might be a better place to work if you were younger and in the IT section. He wasn't. He busted his backside packing and the requirements for packaging things kept going up and up, so that people would be able to be their widgets in one day. he felt like he was working for Mammon. They lay off older workers who might be the more responsible ones because there's a steady supply of people to take their places, Since some many are foreigners I would be surprised if there are immigration shenanigans going on. the only positive thing was benefits kicked in early.

Jeff Bezos just gave millions to help Dreamers go to college. I think he should have given more for workers salaries.

I haven't seen the Williamson column, but I can see someone being a recent convert to pro-life for several reasons, such as:
--- It has morphed from last resort/"safe, legal, rare" --> free abortion on demand
--- Abortion activists have pushed hard to remove stigma, and state legislation prohibiting, late-term abortion, which really is infanticide when it happens weeks before delivery date
--- 3D imaging of fetus in womb and other medical changes that have led to better understanding of what the fetus can do, etc. in the womb
--- Dr. Kermin Gosnell and Planned Parenthood shown to be ghouls who are happy to sell, baby parts, dissect live-but-dying babies, etc.

A lot has changed in 40 years that would make someone who was pro-abortion by default/while uniformed become pro-life in today's practice and political climate

448 Trump making Krugman #1 was absolutely perfect, and sheer genius on his part.

The reasons why:

1) Krugman and his acolytes love to crow about how he is a "nobel prize winning economist". Trump is showing everyone that he was smarter than the Dem's nobel prize winner.

2) Krugman is close to the top of the Democrat Pantheon of writers, and his columns in the NYT are venerated like Holy Scripture. Trump just pushed one of their most cherished tin gods off its little shelf.

3) Trump's #1 claim calls up the whole issue of the Economy - which democrats are desperate to avoid. So he gets to attack one of their most revered figures and they are stunned into silence and have to let it stand.

4) The claim that it was "only opinion" is ridiculous, and everyone knows it. The entire dem party treats Krugman's columns as Ex Cathedra pronouncements, and everyone knows it. Every dem in the country believed Krugman when he wrote this.

5) with the#1 spot on the list being deeply offensive to the dems, but also so inarguably right that they dare not talk about it, the entire list becomes something that the Dem's dare not talk about it, and an insult that they are forced to suffer in silence even though every one of them wants to scream at the sky about it.


Like I said, absolute Genius on Trump's part.

511 Coming out of the dark and into the prolife light is a good thing. Like I said last night, If more people would think about their positions (not feel) in politics we would be better off. Being pro-life is based on facts. Prochoice is all about the feelz. Left/right divide is all about logic vs. feelings on a fundamental level.

Don't be so sure. IT shops have their own issues. The H1Bs have completely taken over both in the management and technical positions and upper mgt. thinks they need to coddle these spoiled little shits. I have pingpong and foosball tables, along with a puzzle room and chess/checker boards all over the place so that the little darlings can *recharge and decompress*. I have an idea, why don't you get here before 10am and then concentrate and work for 8 hours?

I'm a dinosaur in my dept. I'm 25 years older than the next youngest staff member. They don't know what to do with me or how to treat anyone that isn't a Star Wars nerd.

How are 140 girls abused without someone knowing enough to put a stop to it? That so many remained quiet is something that must change.

The drivers sure to seem to work their butts off, especially at Christmas.

Back in the 90's I spent all day once in the DFW FedEx hub because we were shipping some aquarium animals to Japan.

It was pretty amazing watching the non-stop forklifts, which looked chaotic, but obviously everyone knew exactly what they were doing. I'd say about a third of the forklift drivers were women, and all the employees seemed very professional.

The Morning Report 1/18/18

dickydreams.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday finds us with a wealth of linkages so let's get right into it. First thing that caught my eye is investigators in Las Vegas have now announced that they now have other possible suspects under investigation in last year's Mandalay Bay mass shooting massacre. This whole thing has smelled wrong from the outset and seemingly disappeared from the headlines almost overnight. Wherever this leads, it needs to be in the cold light of day for all the world to see. The top echelons of the Federal Law Enforcement and National Security communities' collective reputation is in the toilet as it is, and it does not need to be saddled with being rightly suspected of yet another coverup.

Moving right along, we have several links covering the intertwined issues of the budget, government shutdown shit-show and DACA/Amnesty. On the political front, I think the President has painted the Democrats into a corner. First, their base and even many of their foot soldiers in Congress oppose Trump no matter what and want nothing to do that gives him a win. Yet to sideline DACA would enrage the already unhinged base and so the Party leadership has said no budget without DACA and, despite their claims to the contrary, will be seen to be responsible for any government shutdown (the fact that very little really shuts down as we all know) in the eyes of the public. Plus, PDT will no doubt make a big deal out of the fact that the Democrats would rather place foreigners here illegally over that of American citizens, especially the military who I understand will feel the bite of a shutdown in their wallets. Military Morons please weigh in on this.

And in related news, we have the story of an illegal alien fiend on trial for murdering two California cops, pulling a Cory Booker in court and boasting he'll escape and kill more. Remember, Dick Les "Dicky" Durbin himself has said that his number one mission in Congress is to protect illegal aliens. To Dicky's point, naturally, we cannot lump all the wonderful DREAMers in with this bastard. But, Dicky, you must remember; if repatriating all 800,000 of them saves even ONE life...

Meanwhile, a key staffer for Democrat "Peppermint" Patty Murray is totes fine with anti-semitism so long as it keeps a filthy "Yahood" Trump nominee from becoming an assistant secretary at the Dept. of Education. The Democrat Joo-hate freak-flag is flying in the breeze, as we have seen all during the Obama Reign of Error, and continues to do so. In somewhat related news, the Holocaust-denying head of "partner for peace" Palestinians, Mahmoud Abbas went on a rabid, even for him, tirade against Trump (who I hear has now delayed the Jerusalem embassy move), Joos, Israel and even demanded reparations from the Brits because of the Balfour Declaration. If the "peace process" isn't officially dead (it never really was alive), then it's not at all well. There are the shots, and here's the chaser: Mentally-ill traitor Manning has won the endorsement for Senator from Maryland from Linda Sarsour, the Hamas Louse. Yay.

From hither and yon, we have a court-ordered redrawing of the voting districts in North Carolina that will be in effect before the midterms, several essays about the roaring economy and how the Media will attempt to gaslight America into thinking we're in a Trump-caused Depression, another secret deal between Obama and the Farsis h
