Weekly Standard Shuts Down

There's a lot of whining by NeverTrumpers that this is terrible because we need dissenting voices in media, and the closing of the Weekly Standard means that we must all "kneel" to one rich arrogant man's ego.

Well, you know who might agree with that? Lee Smith, who was fired -- purged -- from The Weekly Standard last October immediately having offered them an article exposing FusionGPS, the firm that Bill Kristol hired to try to take out Trump and Cruz, for those who like to forget that last name.

I know a lot of NeverTrumpers pretend they were Cruz supporters but funny, when I was supporting Cruz, I didn't see them anywhere near me. They were taking snarky shots at Cruz and seemed to be rather enamored of Ruuuuubioooo.

Anyway, Lee Smith offered a rich (well, at least he lives richly off other people's money) arrogant man whose ego cannot bear to hear any dissenting voices a story about the company he paid (or rather, used his donors' money to pay) for dirt on Trump and Cruz, and was canned.

I have repeatedly brought this up and I have not seen a single NeverTrumper, or one of the people eulogizing this magazine which supposedly fostered a spirit of contrarianism and dissent, so much as mention it, let alone condemn it.

So to all of those Weekly Standard people upset about losing your jobs -- Lee Smith lost his job last Christmas (he was fired in October, but generously paid through Christmas), and none of you said a goddamn thing.

If you want some advice on how to recover from an unexpected firing, write me and I'll give you his email; he went through all this (and is still going through some of this) himself. Maybe he can help.

So spare me. As usual, you're all in favor of deplatforming and scalphunting, so long as it's people you don't like being deplatformed and scalphunted.

Another claim being made is that there were buyers but mean old Clarity Media put an end to that.

The grossly fat John Podhoretz, for example, wrote "There were buyers. Potential buyers." But he claimed that the search party for buyers was told to stand down in September.

So that Clarity Media could strip The Weekly Standard for the few assets it had which were actually valuable, like its subscriber list.

Dealing with this one at a time:

Obviously, potential buyers are not actual buyers. Or we'd just say "buyers." So once again, we have a cuck claiming that there were "buyers" but then when you ask, "so why was it not bought?," they start talking about potential buyers.

Well, Kurt Schlichter is a potential buyer. So are commenters here, who talked about putting together an IndieGoGo buyout fund.

But none of this is serious, is it?

Furthermore, Hayes and his search party were permitted to seek buyers for months, and found none. Further beyond that, whether or not they stop actively looking, People have known that TWS was buyable since the search began. They could have made offers at any time.

They didn't. Because there are no buyers. Just... potential buyers.

Lastly, this shit about Clarity wanting to shut down an unprofitable, money-losing biilionaire's vanity project and recover something valuable from it:

When you decide to rely upon the kindness and generosity of a billionaire donor, and are not actually profitable -- when your "business model" is to be a charity forever -- well, sorry, but that means you have an Audience of One. If Phil Anchultz thought that his Vanity Project was no longer boosting his vanity, because, let's say, it was a moribund, low-influence afterthought, well, you lost your audience of one.

You were being kept afloat to make his estimation of himself larger; if you produced dreck, and precious little of it to boot, that's on you.

Next, and finally: This idea that if the rest of the magazine is failing and valueless, but one aspect of it has value (the subscriber list), then it is immoral and terrible to "strip" the company for its "assets:"

Isn't this part of the cycle of creative destruction of capitalism you defend and claim is central to conservative identitarianism? Wasn't the candidate you loved in 2012, Mitt Romney, a practitioner of just this sort of wring-inefficiencies-out-of-the-market-by-breaking-down-nonperforming-companies-and-selling-their-useful-parts capitalism?

You're not very good capitalists if you suddenly start whining "Oh no, capitalistic profit-seeking and inefficiency-eliminating hurts when it happens to you! No fair, no fair! Make the bad men stop!"

You guys can't talk like Gordon Gecko when it's someone else getting a pink slip but then whine like Michael Moore when it's you.

There are bad guys here -- but they're not Clarity Media, who kept this sinking ship afloat with bales of money for a long time.

The bad guys here are the ones who purged dissenting voices, spiked any story that wasn't explicitly anti-Trump, resulting in a relatively low amount of product on offer and usually the same repetitious product again and again and again (Jeryl Bier's 6000th toss-off "column" on how Trump coarsens civic dialogue! YAYYY!!), and refused Larry O'Connor's common-sense recommendation to have some stories that actually commented on current news to increase traffic (and oh yeah -- he got fired too, because Steve Hayes was too good for "clickservatism").

Steve Hayes kept the august Weekly Standard completely free of clickbait headlines.



Steve Hayes, the brave warrior at the gates saying "NO" to thuggish "clickservatism"

And oh yeah, the magazine also constantly baited and insulted Trump voters, also known as 88% of the GOP and 75% of the Weekly Standard's former subscriber base.

And oh -- staffers participating in what sure looked like a paid political operation against Salena Zito -- an actual colleague of the Weekly Standard (well, a fellow employee of Clarity Media, at the Examiner). Apparently for daring to be not explicitly anti-Trump.

That was swell.

Did Jim Swift receive discipline for participating in the coordinated political hit on a colleague? Or was he permitted to do it by his supervisors?

Or was he... ordered to do it?

Who knows. There are so many Pierre Omidyar-funded ops going it's hard to keep track of them all.

Take ownership of your failure, Bill, Steve, and John. You worked hard for it.

Well I don't know how hard you worked, actually. Your magazine doesn't produce much. But however much you worked, you did accomplish failure.

One final voyage, into irrelevancy

54 I was going to make a joke about the Fall of the House of Krystol, but when I went and looked up at the text, I literally only had to substitute "Krystol" for "Usher" and nothing else:

"DURING the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds hung oppressively low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract of country; and at length found myself, as the shades of the evening drew on, within view of the melancholy House of Krystol. I know not how it was --but, with the first glimpse of the building, a sense of insufferable gloom pervaded my spirit. I say insufferable; for the feeling was unrelieved by any of that half-pleasurable, because poetic, sentiment, with which the mind usually receives even the sternest natural images of the desolate or terrible. I looked upon the scene before me --upon the mere house, and the simple landscape features of the domain --upon the bleak walls --upon the vacant eye-like windows --upon a few rank sedges --and upon a few white trunks of decayed trees --with an utter depression of soul which I can compare to no earthly sensation more properly than to the after-dream of the reveller upon opium --the bitter lapse into everyday life --the hideous dropping off of the veil."

90 I know a lot of NeverTrumpers pretend they were Cruz supporters but funny, when I was supporting Cruz, I didn't see them anywhere near me.

The only one I can recall offhand who actually supported Cruz was Nordlinger. He actually chided Mona for living in "a Marco centric universe." I was surprised at just how completely NT he went.

I know the rest of the NRO #NT brigade were either hot for Dondi or flirting with someone else. I know Goldberg was very critical of Ted until he had to grit his teeth and pretend to back him. And he didn't even hide his dismay at that.

Maybe French was pro-Cruz. I don't remember.

I do recall pointing out that, after endorsing Cruz, they didn't run any articles making a case for him. I got a ton of upvotes, but they still were clearly lukewarm.

Watched an exchange between Kevin "California Dreaming" McCarthy and Steny Hoyer and I got to say Steny Hoyer got right to the nub of it and showed McCarthy and the GOP to be the useless piles of dog shit we knew them to be.


They are arguing over border wall funding and McCarthy was haranging Hoyer over funding and Hoyer quite rightly said, to parapharse...


Hey dip shit, you've got 240 members you need 214 to pass a bill, why don't you guys proposes a bill and pass it and stop this bullshit game.


McCarthy meekly said, well I hope you guys understand how hard it is to govern when you take over.


I fucking did a spit take of my coffee when that stupid mother fucker said that.


I'm pretty sure the Donks will have no trouble at all coming up with 214 votes for anything and everything they want.


The GOP is a useless pile of dog shit....

There's a lot of whining by NeverTrumpers that this is terrible because we need dissenting voices in media, and the closing of the Weekly Standard means that we must all "kneel" to one rich arrogant man's ego.

Well, you know who might agree with that? Lee Smith, who was fired -- purged -- from The Weekly Standard last October immediately having offered them an article exposing FusionGPS, the firm that Bill Kristol hired to try to take out Trump and Cruz, for those who like to forget that last name.

Seriously, kudos for your righteous rages.

What most of the right needs to understand is that corporate America is out to destroy them and repopulate the U.S. with a cheaper, more controllable workforce. They ain't your friends and while they may make common cause with the right from time to time on things like taxes, they ultimately despise Average Joe and their demands for ends to corporate welfare, fair trade, controlled immigration, etc.

They are using dark money to buy "conservatives" media and plant "stories" through cutouts like Global Fusion. They institute destruction of institutions like the BSA or churches by threatening to withhold money and investments.

They buy our politicians and promote political apathy as nothing seems to change. They hire shills and trolls through cutouts to promote their sorry asses on social media. Their controlled puppets in the media, think tanks, and academia promote all sorts of corporate welfare in a time of massive debt and deficits along with promoting illegal immigration that makes deficits and debt worse. They are termites undermining the West and its existing peoples to what end, I do not know. But I have my suspicions.

Welch wasn't "deplatformed." He was independently wealthy, and had several publications of his own.

He supported Goldwater and Reagan from Day One. He didn't stab actual candidates in the back like the current Cuckservatives. The entire premise of the Buckley Rule is to accept flawed candidates because you can't expect to elect fire breathing conservatives in purple areas. I think it's nonsense to think he'd be the equivalent of complete frauds like Goldberg and French and Kristol just because he was patrician and because once upon a time he was in favor of purging a fringe element.

And unlike The Weekly Standard, at least the Birch Society still exists.

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"So I finished up the 6-part A&E documentary on Bill Clinton's horndog activities as president, and despite the biases, it was worth watching, if for no other reason than they interviewed the ol' Serpent King himself, James Carville, and it must be close to the molting season, because he's even more slithery and reptilian than ever. His beady little eyes were constantly shifting back and forth and I was half-expecting to see a long forked tongue dart out of his mouth and snatch a bug out of the air. But, I digress. The point is, as frustrating as it was at time, I think that as far as our country is concerned, it all worked out for the best. Juanita Brodderick might disagree, but consider this: if Clinton had been impeached, or forced to resign, or disgraced in some fashion so that it could be claimed that justice, however imperfect, had been done, then the affair would have been over and done with once and for all. Hillary could said all of that was now behind her and gone on to easily win the presidency. But instead, it's still pretty much unresolved. All of their lawyerly evasions, non-denial denials, and non-apologies have been hanging around in the national living room like a lingering fart. Hillary, bless her heart, was completely oblivious to this, so when she published her infamous "all women need to be believed" tweet, Donald Trump snatched it up and hung it around her neck like a big stinky albatross. All of her decades-long aiding and abetting and running of interference for a serial rapist for was held up in the national spotlight for everyone to look at. Plus, it couldn't be written off as being the product of some sort of conservative right-wing attack machine, because Trump was no right-winger and certainly no conservative. And only Trump, out of all the Republican candidates, could do this. Not only is he the only Republican without the disqualifying conservative baggage, he's also the only one with the balls; to point his finger at Hillary and name her publicly as what everyone knows to be true. No other Republican would have dared to make this an issue. But Trump wanted to boldly go where no man had gone before. He saw a weak spot in Hillary and struck the knife in hard. So I think the end result of Bill Clinton being able to laugh and smirk his way to the end of his term is that Hillary didn't get to be president. And how great is that?"

104 Grace Kelly was in interesting cat.

Rich and upper class, for an American, before she got into acting. She was very, very, very 'popular'. Best head in Hollywood, according to David Niven. Who would know.

Then became a literal princess and...never got to go anywhere or do anything because her prince knew what would happen if he let her out from under his thumb.

I never knew if I should feel sorry for her or not.

But Grace left a permanent mark in any movie she ever made. Luminous.

He was a Hollyweird "star" being marketed for high national office, married a "Kennedy", selected the Republican mantle so the Repukes could have a manly, but accessible, butt boy for the national stage, helped implement Demonicrat policies in Mexifornia, was on the idiot bad daily, then dipped his wick in a dwarf and got her pregnant. Oh, he occasionally does a cameo in some of his "friends'" movies, and flies his jet, sails his yacht, or drives his environmentally friendly Hummer to some camera that sends his opinions on "climate change" to the rubes, but he no longer has any cachet.

152 >>. . .No other Republican would have dared to make this an issue. But Trump wanted to boldly go where no man had gone before. He saw a weak spot in Hillary and struck the knife in hard. So I think the end result of Bill Clinton being able to laugh and smirk his way to the end of his term is that Hillary didn't get to be president. And how great is that.




Sadly, she did leverage it into a Senate seat and a Sec. of State position.


But yes, Hillary finally, FINALLY getting her comeuppance on assisting and covering her rapey husband's behavior - and Bill getting it, too, from Trump - was very satisfying.

196 OK, you may or may not like what Ahnold did as Governor of CA. Consider his life.

He lives in Bumfuck, Oesterreich and likes bodybuilding, which is not considered a sport and is mostly relegated to Charles Atlas ads for faggots in the back of magazines.

He comes to America for actual American reasons. He wants opportunity.

He knows that in order to make himself successful he has to change the image of bodybuilding itself. So he does. He pairs up with Joe Weider, they start making a movie, Pumping Iron. They run out of money to make the movie so they put on a show at MoMa about bodybuilding as an art. It works. It makes the money and it gets the NYT talking about bodybuilding as an art.

So the movie succeeds and Ahnold wants an acting career but just to play it safe he starts investing in real estate and is a self-made millionaire before he ever gets the part in Conan.

Do seek out "Stay Hungry" which is mostly Jeff Daniels and Sally Field but has a strong Ahnold presence. Do not seek out "Hercules in New York" in which fresh off the boat Ahnold is cast as Arnold Strong.

293 Avenger, thanks for the quick newz summary. But two things.


Trump's "Mexico will pay for the wall" thing was just a fairly lame twist to imply benefits from new USMCA will in effect pay for the wall. Fine. Whatever. The "Mexico will pay" thing was the only completely dumb and pointless bit of schtick in Trump's 2016 campaign (lots of the other schtick was good, and related to important issues). I don't expect other countries to pay for our aircraft carriers, ICBMs, or national parks. Border security is sort of kinda the most fundamental federal responsibility, logically and constitutionally.


Other thing. Exculpatory Flynn docs released? Really? Haven't seen that. Did you mean there are claims/hopes such docs exist - the ones held by DIA?

You know who else wouldn't do nudes? The actress who played Ellie Mae on 'Beverly Hillbillies'.

After the show was cancelled, she got a crap ton of movie offers, but rejected scripts that called for her character to get naked. Which turned out to be pretty much every one of them.

She was a devout Christian lady. Stayed off of the casting couches, too.

And her career basically fizzled out.

Another thing that has always baffled me about the entire Flynn case. Flynn of course knew his convos with Kislyak were monitored. FBI agents knew. Flynn knew that FBI agents knew that he knew. I believe FBI would have routine access to such info.


Don't understand how Flynn could let himself be tripped up in the slightest by such an interview.


Not joking - "well, I can't recall exactly, but I don't think so - but hey you have the conversation on tape, just check it". Perfectly normal response. Nobody in that context is pretending not to know what they all know. Former DIA head, and head of FBI counter-intel?

They are arguing over border wall funding and McCarthy was haranging Hoyer over funding and Hoyer quite rightly said, to parapharse...

Hey dip shit, you've got 240 members you need 214 to pass a bill, why don't you guys proposes a bill and pass it and stop this bullshit game.

McCarthy meekly said, well I hope you guys understand how hard it is to govern when you take over.

I fucking did a spit take of my coffee when that stupid mother fucker said that.

I'm pretty sure the Donks will have no trouble at all coming up with 214 votes for anything and everything they want.

95 In Wagner's opera Das Rheingold, king of the gods Wotan (Odin) agrees to give his sister-in-law Freia (Freja) to two giants to do with as they will in exchange for building him a castle, Valhalla. Now, not only will this enrage his wife Fricka when she finds out but Freia is the only one who can grow the apples that make the gods immortal. Without the apples, the gods will age, sicken and die. And Wotan does this on the advice of Loge (Loki), not known for his honesty, who basically just tell Wotan it'll be cool.

That's some real good thinking there, Wotan. No wonder you're king of the gods.

Bauer died in 1918. This is from 1905.

The Exposition des Art Decoratif, which gave Deco its name, took place in 1925. This is an amazing precursor, because to me and someone else upthread it looks Deco.

The sine quo non of a political party is the accumulation of political
power to advance an agenda broadly supported by your coalition and
voters.


They simply do not care about anyone except that they have power and are able to make lives miserable through the exercise of it. They have theirs, they have plenty of money and nothing to worry about. They're greedy, egotistical and arrogant. They never give one second of thought to how they'd feel if the situation was reversed and they were to have their lives destroyed instead.

125 John Bauer is a bit different from other Scandi painters. Instead of homelife scenes, often in bright light, his scenes are typically outdoors, harkening to older times. They are also rather stylized. I don't know if Art Deco is the correct term but it has that feel for me. When illustrating folk tales, Bauer's work is not playful but there is a sense of whimsy. I think his images, including this one, to be evocative and suitable to his goal.

I find his style very similar to JRR Tolkien's when Tolkien did his more formal drawings. They are roughly from the same period.

I have a Thesis In a Box idea for a film student, but even though my No. 1 Son was a film major he didn't have to have a thesis. Also they didn't show him any foreign movies, but I digress. He got a stupid degree. Really, I taught him more than they did. I continue to digress.

There is a 1924 silent, Die Niebelungen, by Fritz Lang, which was heavily cribbed by Kurosawa for Ran.

Everyone says "oh, Ran is Kurosawa's take on King Lear". Yeah, no. It's Die Niebelungen. You've got the girl forced to marry the enemy warlord, check, she spends the whole movie plotting bloody revenge, check, she succeeds in destroying everyone and everything, check.

Also, the scene where the castle burns is basically a shot for shot steal.

Now, nobody knows this because who would watch both the Niebelungen (about six hours of silent film) and Ran? Well, I would. But I don't have a film thesis to defend.

159 Kreplach there's only one group that is responsible for allowing the situation to develop and persist - voters. True that in a two-party (de facto) system there is a huge amount of inertia, and thinking voters are trapped when neither party is acceptable. But GOP voters (whatever their registration) have, bottom line, allowed and enabled what has become farcical performance by the GOP when in power.


Trump is a unique phenomenon in our history, and truly represents a desperate attempt to break out of the trap - and largely for specific reasons. But he made no effort to push the change into the GOP itself, apart from 2 or 3 spats with specific senators. And now we sit just one brief cyclical economic dip and one airhead Dem presidential candidate with the right skin color or genitalia away from almost everything Trump has accomplished being washed away in a few weeks.


But come on, let's be fair-minded. There will be historic prison sentencing reform next week! Almost certain to be a disaster, not to mention a direct blow to a drug war that is almost entirely a cross-border gang war enabled by GOP/Dem borderless idiocy. But ..... historic, likely to gain Trump at least 1,458 votes from the black community, and comforting to moral narcissists in power! And all those chants of "prison sentencing reform, now!" at Trump rallies can be retired.

Thankfully no. Goes to a conservative Catholic university (Franciscan). So she (and I) are pretty insulated from such idiocy. Also, she knows not to bring home anyone with ear gages, nose or lip piercings. I promised her I would treat such suitors in the same manner as Al Bundy would to his daughter Kelly's suitors (bang them into the door several times, kick them in the ass, etc.).

I did not say he "invented it". I said he implemented it for the US.



The American System program was invented by Henry Clay and the Whig Party before the Civil War but it was not implemented because the South vehemently opposed it and was successful in blocking it until after they "left" the country and gave Dishonest Abe a free reign over the North. The first major project was the Transcontinental Railroad which was a major disaster due to rank corruption.

Axelrod & Obama were both products of one of the most corrupt political environments ever created, the Chicago Democrats. And back in the days before
Twit-Idiots existed, blogs were the go-to for quick takes on politics.

Axelrod came up with that Russian bot nonsense during the 2016 election because he himself was the originator of fake blog comments back in 2008.

254 "The American School's key elements were promoted by John Quincy Adams and his National Republican Party, Henry Clay and the Whig Party and Abraham Lincoln through the early Republican Party which embraced, implemented and maintained this economic system." -- J.L.M. Curry, "Confederate States and Their Constitution", The Galaxy, New York, 1874 cornell.edu".

Whether Lincoln used verbatim the term 'American System' is a moot point. He clearly was a corporatist. Working for the RR has that effect.

I pray not. But, she didn't seem too concerned about running her campaign nor losing, which makes me worry she had another, easier option available. But, Gov Ducey's aide resigned a couple of weeks ago and he has been mentioned as a replacement since mccain died. I'm hoping he's the man.

Frigga is a dirty, dirty girl. Dirty. Sexy.

You know an interesting theory/theology came up once talking about how Norse mythology didn't describe the future, ala Ragnarok. It was relating the PAST. That the gods had already fought, already died and the edda were tales about their struggle rather than predicting that the world would end someday.

I do point out evidence that takes the opposite point of someone who has a differing view but I don't call them silly or stupid or any other name. Because I'm not a 5 year old.

Sure, I give my opinion just like everyone does. That is pretty much the entire point of this place. But I don't attack and I try to be civil even with those who do attack.

356 Just an update on the actual art.

The wiki captions it as an oil sketch, 1905. But in the narrative of his life it talks about him portraying his wife Ester nude in a Freja painting and that's 1917.

If you look at his other paintings as a sort of progression, ours fits in better with 1917. (A 1913 Freja is much more primitive). So I'm going with this is 1917 and it points toward Deco because Deco is about to happen.

To paraphrase Lao Tzu, every extreme generates its opposite.

Smothering goodness breeds evil (look at Prohibition for an example). Too much evil leads to a crusade to end it. Pass so many laws that everyone becomes a criminal, and people will wantonly disobey them. If there is anarchy, someone will put an end to it and make laws.

412 >>But you don't post evidence you post propaganda meant to mollify and give false hope, which prevents people from organizing and orienting their thoughts towards positive action.

I do all the time. I did in the last thread where I posted an article by Sara Carter which was a recap of yesterdays House Oversight Committee hearing where she said plainly that the whistleblowers have been in contact with the FBI on multiple times and they confirmed that there is an active and ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation being run out of Little Rock, Arkansas. I didn't make it up.

I realize you don't believe that. You've been very clear. But I listened to every word of that hearing. I heard the exact same thing both Sara Carter and John Solomon heard and I said that and gave evidence.

How is that not providing evidence?

We're forced to live here, there's no choice. It seems lately there's a whole bunch of people who's mission in life to fuck things up for the rest of us. And they're very richly rewarded for doing that.

He's got his and he doesn't give a rat's ass about anyone else who's suffered from the shit he did while in office. BJ Cliton is another one.

415 "He modified it slightly and called it The American System. We still implement that now."Posted by: Vic



I'll have to look into that ... more recently, the "Chicago School" eliminated the responsibility of American business to have any regard for America.

"For example, the Business Roundtable, a forum that represented CEOs,
stated in 1981 that "the long term viability of the corporation depends
upon its responsibility to the society of which it is a part".

That view changed in the 1980s spurred on by Milton Friedman and
others affiliated with the "Chicago school" of free market economists
who argued the "only social responsibility of business is to increase
its profits".

428 Interesting minutiae for those deep in the weeds on the Flynn situation.


"Jeff at themarketswork" (his twatters nic) muses that the footnote in the sentencing memo getting all the attention, because it appears to imply that Flynn's interview summary (the FBI Form 302) was written up 8 months after the fact. Which would be a big issue for various reasons.


But the language of the 302 seems to indicate it summarizes an interview *of the FBI agents involved, Pientka and Strzok*, not the infamous ambush interview of Flynn in the WH.


Which would result in one big "never mind", in the ongoing saga.

The Morning Report - 12/14/18

tedli.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend's here so let's get with it. As usual lots of things can be categorized into multiple buckets but let's get to the number one with a rubber-bullet category, Amnesty and Immigration. Grandma Gran-Mal Nancy Palsi insists there will be no wall funding even if it means the government is shut down forever. That orgasm inducing phrase aside, this indicates the President in the wake of that meeting with her and that goniffing momzer Cuck Schemer has painted the Dems as not wanting border security and responsible for any shut down of the government (not that that means a damn thing but it is a weapon used far too long on the GOP). Hang tough, Mr. President. Elsewhere, an infuriating statistic on foreign worker employment, we have a migrant invasion daily across the southern border, and wall or no wall (and we DO need one), high tech can be a powerful weapon in security. That said, enforcing the laws already on the books and punishing any and all lawbreakers whatever their nationality would do wonders all by itself.

In the wake of yesterday's big news about the judge in the Michael Flynn case going apeshit over the FBI's Stasi entrapment racket, Mueller-gate continues with Fat Eddie Munster-looking Andrew Napolitano lying about what the Cohen plea means vis a vis redounding on Trump, but lastly, Jerome Corsi could be in actual hot water over some sort of charity money raised to pay a doctor who evidently doesn't exist. Technically Doctor "Who?" but I digress...

To Politics where in the scandal subset, Maxine "Mikvah" Waters is getting into deeper hock with her daughter over campaign lucre, a Defense Department employee had a nice 17-year-long overtime pay going and then got caught and Paul Kengor looks back 20 years to Bill Clinton's impeachment. In other links, Trump puts the blame squarely on the Dems for a shutdown, a new bill makes Congresscritters responsible for their own "mish"-ugas, two weird ones where a new poll indicates a majority of Dems want their party to be less liberal (which calls into question the definition of the term "liberal') and Moonbeam thinks the party is getting too extreme. Have another bong hit, dude, and get your mind right. Another look at the insanity of vote harvesting, when does Trump finally put his foot down and two good essays vis a vis France's troubles and the madness of electoral college abolition and how We The People reassert our sovereignty.

Lots of First Amendment and Fake News Fakery news, Ted Lieu is outraged at conservative media daring to quote his exact words in wanting to cut our collective tongue out, the new NAFTA treaty preserves and expands Big Tech's Big Brother powers, a case study in how NBS crafts memes by lies and distortions, an alarming story about how a VA whistleblower got raided by the FBI (sound familiar?) sent to a psych ward (happy birthday, Solzhenitsyn) and was fired all because of some Tweets, DeadSpin has pleasant, congenial debate with tells gay conservative to shut the fuck up, Politifact's Lie of the Year is itself a big fat lie, and the Guardian equates Jooz with terrorists, or day-ending-in-"Y" department.

At the foreign desk, NSA John Bolton gets Africa-tough on the Chi-Coms, Russkies and UN while the administration is slashing funding for peacekeeping ops on the dark continent, Iran promises to ramp up nuke weapons production (thanks Obama and Corker!), the Chi-Coms arrest a drinking chum of Whoa, Fat! and Dennis Rodman, Lindsay Graham has Khashoggi on the brain, zee French dilemma, the continued Chi-Com threat in the western Pacific and go long on Thai sticks. Obama has.

In the religion of Peace, Daniel Greenfield has a rundown (no pun) of 20 years of Islamic Christmas terror in Deutschland, I have coined a new phrase because of Natalie Portman: the self-gassing Jew, and the Strasbourg terrorist is room temperature and ISIS is claiming responsibility, as the world media is still looking for a motive.

Domestically, NY State is persecuting a faith-based adoption agency, a former VA employee is challenging the law that makes it easy to fire corrupt government hacks such as him, Matt Whitaker did not violate the Hatch Act, the FCC kneecaps California's insane text tax, and while Chief Justice John Crockovich is the next Anthony Kennedy, the jury is still out on Brett Kavanaugh despite last week's Planned Parenthood ruling.

In non-Dostoyevsky crime and punishment, scrambling to shore up and modify that FIRST STEP bill, the poster child for bail reform misses a gala event with Obama (heh) and former NYC sex crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein, who was and is a decent person/prosecutor, gets the SJW Emanuel Goldstein treatment for doing her job fairly in a notorious gang rape case. Guess the races of the victim and the perps.

In other news, Air BnB is in deep-doo-doo over its Joo-boycott and that doesn't bode well for its upcoming IPO, miraculously, all the chancellors from U. Cal colleges are against the BDS movement despite the rogue professoriate, and a Prager U new video on child indoctrination. Two items from Enviro-Commie HQ, the lawyers in the Big Oil lawsuit shakedowns stand to make a ton of money and this Green New Deal is a total scam and economic disaster.

To Feminazism with a look at the Blasey-Ford follies vis a vis the future is female tripe and Planned Parenthood stands with the Nazis. From hither and yon, Amy Schumer makes us sad, and Santayana has a black magic century...

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

I guess 'joins Democrats' is a wrong term for this scrunt. With a CR rating of 10 she IS a Democrat. But in truth, this bill should be unnecessary because it is already illegal to use gov agencies to harass members of the public for personal or political reasons. Of course when you have corrupt federal law enforcement you do need something else. BTW there is still a criminal charge out on LL which the corrupt DOJ failed to implement under the Choom. So why isn't the current DOJ pursuing it? Because nobody has cleaned out the corrupt shit-holes.

If they want to "shut down the government" they found the one guy, I think, that will give them their wish.

The threat works so long as it remains a threat. The "shut down" is the big monster everyone is scared of. What will happen if things are shut down? Will it be anarchy, Armageddon, the end of all things, cats and dogs living together? Now, if you have someone who really has the will to push it, and I think Trump has that will, and it is done, and the big bad monster does not appear and things move along pretty much as they always have, then you will get people asking what they were jumping up and down over? I wonder if the Democrats really want to take that risk two years out from an election?

guilty pleas to make his assertions about violations seem valid, but
they're in no way established as being actual infractions of the actual
law (like the 'campaign finance' BS).

The word INFLUENCE has been defined by SCOTUS. It takes 2 parts. One an action either to support or not support and two a named candidate.
INFLUENCE: Vote against that scrunt Hillary.
NOT INFLUENCE: We paid a lyin ho to go away.

131 OK, starting out without having read any links or comments, because I'm incredibly sad today.

Here's a featured picture on today's Seraphic Secret blog - Edward Hopper's "New York Movie:"

https://tinyurl.com/y7v947je

And here's what Robert Avrech has to say about it:

"New York Movie" by Edward Hopper, painted in 1939. Hopper (1882-1967) does a split screen here. The left frame shows us a movie theater and a tiny sliver of light on the screen. On the right, an usherette who has seen the movie who knows how many times, leans against the wall, flashlight in hand, and dreams of being somewhere else. Notice how Hopper leads our eye from foreground to background by the receding ceiling lights and the five steps framed by the red velvet curtains. Hopper understood that going to the movies is a communal experience, but as always with Hopper, a sense of isolation pervades his distinctly spare, introspective compositions.

I guess I agree, but to me, I've always felt the poor girl in the picture was like me, wishing life were like the movies and that some wonderful love would come along to make her happy.

Movies are a cheat, as a hack writer of my acquaintance once said.

BTW, she seems to be wearing T-strap shoes like this:

214 good morning glorious horde ...

Huber is coming on the 13th, revealing everything ... oh wait, that was yesterday. Turns out the dog ate his Clinton Evidence homework ... or did it all go straight to the DC shredder, the way Mueller wiped (like with a cloth) the Strzok phone evidence?

Hannity the other day was on with Solomon, Sarah, and Jarrett ... and Hannity said something like "but prosecutions are going to happen, don't you all agree?" ... the responses were less definite than I recall in the past, and Gregg Jarrett was more like "let's hope so".


Various sources I listen to claim they have their own sources saying "yeah, it is happening" ... but other reports say they aren't even talking to key witnesses ... no homes get raided (that we know of, and we would surely hear some of it) ... except homes of whistle blowers or Trump's lawyer/backers.


The witch hunt is a coup, and it continues as they try to coerce scripted confessions in order to get Trump ... it is the mafia and Dems in bed with high level bureaucrats and globalist oligarchs. Now we have to hope another AG maybe will not support the mafia, or not cower before them.

Sarah brought pecan pie to the WH press potluck party as a good will gesture/lighthearted response to April's pie trutherism. Not sure if April ate any - she had tweeted out that she wouldn't.

Something like "The way my little son smiles at me" or "I really enjoy the sunrise" or "My wife has a good sense of humor." or "I enjoy the people I work with." You don't have to put it on this thread, (because that would interrupt the daily doom )but if you're on any thread which I might be on that day please consider sharing something.

Why did Justice Kavanaugh take a pass on two Planned Parenthood cases? - A cautious court
********
Why, indeed, did the chief and the junior justice opt to sit this battle out? As the steward of the Supreme Court's institutional credibility, and in light of politicised confirmation hearings that cast the Supreme Court in an unusually partisan light this autumn, Chief Justice Roberts is steering a careful course. The justices have decided three cases so far this term--all unanimously. Keeping politically charged cases off the docket seems to be par for the course. And it is no particular surprise that Justice Kavanaugh is cultivating a low profile, heading off conflicts involving poor women's access to reproductive health services so early in his tenure.

When informed of his vote, Mrs Collins said she felt vindicated in her support of Donald Trump's second Supreme Court pick. That is a little hasty. Justice Kavanaugh has a record of scepticism regarding Roe and decades ahead of him on the bench. It would be a mistake to read too much into a single vote not to take a case that does not, after all, concern the justification or scope of abortion rights.

There was some higher placed article on it recently, but it is not like the evidence is secret ... Judicial Watch, or O'Keefe ... only the outsiders seem to dig it up, as the insiders work diligently to bury it, or BleachBit it and threaten the real witnesses.


It is hard to see why SOMETHING more could not have happened already, if the intent was not business as usual "delay delay delay ... old news, let's move on" .. the business of the DC Crime Cartel.

Once the new Congress is sworn in, none. But the real action isn't happening in Congress anyway.

As Sara Carter and John Solomon among other have been reporting for weeks there is indeed and open and active investigation going on at the FBI/DOJ and as those who listened to the hearing yesterday heard, confirmation that there is also an investigation going on at the IRS.

Congress has no say in those investigations.

You bet he is. Just like in the ObamaCare ruling - Roberts knows that one side will obey his court, no matter what. And he knows the other side won't, when push comes to shove. So, he's going to bend over backward not to lose face by being shown just how powerless those nine black robes are - when people simply quit giving a damn what The Supreme's have to say.

In the home stretch, no more vacillating on whether someone will like their gift or not: it is almost over, traffic is light, and store people are relieved and good-humored.

No, they don't. However, they do have a say in what is entered into the Congressional Record -- the official diary of Congress and its activities. I can just see someone 20 years from now (compressed time in the age of modern comms) absolutely freaking out at the astonishing corruption.

I's hard when you're feeling lousy and not making as much progress as you might like, but we have a whole host of people here praying for your complete healing, and I know there are many people outside the box doing the same.

Nobody, NOBODY, could survive a FED proctological exam that can go anywhere and touch everything.

Now do Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation or Diane Feinstein.

This bullshit has got to stop."

It will stop only when state actors fear their actions (or lack thereof) have consequences. So far that concern isn't an impediment. And why should it be? The media are willing propaganda organs, civil service protections guarantee even the most blatant criminality can lead to a cushy retirement, and the courts have become little more than rubberstamps with blackrobed Uncle Toms (and that's when they aren't actively making policy to favor the Deep State).


The Soviet Union lasted eighty years. The grotesque monstrosity the federal government has become is about the same age. The Soviets lost their grip only after people rose up, and that was fueled by economic deprivation and a debacle in Afghanistan. We have the latter but not the former yet but eventually will.


It's poignantly foolish to believe the system remains intact enough to affect change within it. Things will get real ugly real fast once the economy implodes, and likely not one minute sooner, and that will be because of a restive population.

So, no, elections and court proceedings don't matter and are but minor hinderances for the time being.

371 >>I do understand the under investigation aspect, But for us outside their loop , we see little result, it has been years and If (IF) the next election cycle plays out for team criminals .

>>Muellers continual bizzare activities unchecked , Where is anyone looking into uranium deal and Muellers complicity with it?
is this also under investigation?

It really hasn't been years, willow, it just seems that way. Huber was appointed to this task in the fall of 2017 so it's been a little over a year.

That doesn't mean it isn't frustrating, it is for everyone. And while there will never be the kind of reporting on this investigation like there is on Mueller for obvious reason there is some reporting if you look for it. And there are source documents and other information to read if you're interested.

The scope and scale of what they are investigating is massive and I have no idea if they will ever be able to bring a case that will stick but there is an investigation and that's just a fact. We'll just have to wait and see if it bears any fruit.

447 I need to shout BECAUSE DUDES DON'T LISTEN AND WE GET THESE CASSIDY SITUATIONS POPPING UP EVERY DAY---NEVER COMMENT ON/SPEAK TO A REPORTER ON A STORY U EXPECT TO BE QUOTED IN WITHOUT AUDIO AND VIDEO TAPING YOUR ENTIRE INTERACTION WITH THE REPORTER.

NEVER GIVE A QUOTE BY PHONE MAKE THE REPORTER COME TO YOU, THEN SURROUND THEM WITH CAMERAS AND TAPE RECORDERS.

TELL THE REPORTER THAT 5 MINUTES AFTER THE END-RESULT OF THE INTERVIEW IS PUBLISHED, YOU PLAN TO PUBLISH ALL YOUR FOOTAGE AND SOUNDBITES FROM THE INTERVIEW.

Then calmly tell the reporter that these are the terms, they're perfectly reasonable in today's environment, and theres the door if you want out.

So, 2 days until the end of open enrollment, do you really think I have time to write a full ONT? Ha!

So you're going to get a couple of links, a twitter embed or two and no commentary from me (Best. ONT. Ever.). Basically what I can throw together in the 15 minutes before my next appointment.

7 Hmmm.


Well, on-topic (I read the first sentence, at least), as I noted yesterday, I know someone in CA, a classic victim of O-care's destruction of the individual insurance "market"*. He has manipulated his income since the onset of O-care, to qualify for that crap, thanks to the instant 300% premium increases that brought to individual policies. This year, his subsidized premium went up 2,000% (big numbers come from the fact both are actually small numbers - but the change is still worth noting).


Hey - maybe the GOP can run on a platform of repealing O-care! Somebody send an email to the RNC - that should be a sure-fire campaign stance, dontcha think???


* use of the word "market" in connection with most insurance is mostly ironic, or in the case of medical matters, entirely ironic

80 My scouting experience was probably between bth and Calm Mentor's. I learned a lot of practical how-to woodcraft and survival, did a lot of camping and canoeing and hiking that I wouldn't have otherwise done. I didn't realize at the time that hiking a few miles through the woods, preparing a campsite, building a fire, and packing everything back out would be one of those "now I've done it, I know how to do it again and that I could do it again" things.

As far as the "administrative" side of it, I never made Eagle - I thought I got to Star, but I found a Life patch on my shirt when I brought a box of my old stuff from my parents' basement recently, so I must have finished that before I quit going. It wasn't the most fun I ever had nor the worst, but it was certainly worth having done. Order of the Arrow, I think, meant more from a personal accomplishment point of view than any of the merit badge stuff.

82 The movie Looper bothered me a great deal that psychic abilities were a part of the plot. And by the way, very tangential and could have been changed easily. The little Dameon has psychic powers? Well hey change the story to "he will be the next Hitler" because that is historical, and so feed into the main premise of time travel. You there, script-writer! You get one premise, one premise only, and if it's interesting I will buy a ticket. If you can't go twenty miles on one premise you are lazy. I could go twenty miles on time travel, and I'm not a real writer.

Then there's Japan. They want ALL the premises and ALL the genres in whatever show, that they can toggle like stops on a great organ.

90 Things I remember about the Boy Scouts:

Some time in the 90s, they made a policy of no longer allowing gay scout masters because boys were being abused and they wanted to protect the boys and they were also losing a lot of money in lawsuits from the victims.

Levi's announced they were cutting off their donations to BSA because of their homophobic and discriminatory policy.

Normal people boycott Levi's and Levi's loses a bunch of business and blames it on Americans not appreciating quality anymore. Levi's moves production overseas to save labor costs.

After that, I lost touch with the events,

Plus, more modern jeans: I seem to break the belt loops. Always the same one. Cannot quite figure it out. It is not the stitching that breaks, the material pulls out around where the belt loop is anchored.

170 That "moneywise" article on worst States for retirement left a lot to be desired. They downrated States for shit that should be in the individual retiree's wheelhouse, like a high rate of tobacco use by seniors, for example. I'm a non-smoking senior. Why should I give a shit if many of my contemporaries smoke? I can buy their stuff cheap when they croak.

And they whine about hurricanes, or tornadoes. Meh, if I choose to settle in storm country, or earthquake country, it's up to me to buy or build a home that can stand up to what Ma Nature deals out.

Biggest issue is taxes, then home prices, then cost of living.

My Catholic grade school had a Troop. I wouldn't join it because I spent hours every weekday with those assholes, so why would I want to spend my weekends camping with them, too? I joined a Troop at a nearby Episcopal Church. Funniest part was when I was received my Eagle Scout rank. The first row in the Episcopal Church was full of nuns in habits. But not joining my school's Troop was one of my best early life decisions because I do have some great memories, including the memory of my Scoutmaster, Mr. Ira C. Erwin (all his personal gear was labeled 'ICE'; probably get in trouble for that today), a true adult rebel (which is a life lesson in its own right). He hated our local Council, calling them clowns. We never went to our Council's summer camp 45 minutes away. Instead, we went to another Council's summer camp 2 plus hours away.

I remember stopping by to visit him while in college. While there, two Naval aviators also stopped by who were his Scouts before my time. Not many Scout leaders engender such affection (in a good way; getyermindsouttathegutter people!). Thank you Mr. Erwin. You done good.

Italian pizzellas are great, the one thing anise works on. I have gotten partial to the wife's version using lemon though, have to admit.

The secret to the anise is to use just a bit. People tend to overdo it.

278 As a dad of a tweenaged daughter, I was asked several years back to consider putting my daughter in GSA.

I told the local den mom straight out that she (my daughter) couldn't participate in GSA because they had let boys identifying as girls join.

She said their troop wouldn't do that, but I said no. She asked me what was wrong with that anyway. I said, "See, you would do that if the opportunity presented itself."

I was not very popular from that point forward in pick-up line and at school functions after that. The kids always liked me, because I have long hair and a beard and did burnouts leaving the pick-up line, but the liberal soccer moms hated me.

Look at Suave's line of hair care products. I've read that one of the reasons they're inexpensive is because they don't really advertise much.

This was only 15 or 20 years ago. I expect Sauza paid good money to have these ads scrubbed from cyberspace.

The one that shocked me, even as a crude young guy, was a disheveled drunk looming over a hot chick passed out on a couch and leering.

Yeah, we have that, too.

Talk about hand washing after wrenching, here's a pro tip: use the white gel hand cleaner, like DL or GoJo, work it into your hands, and then add a little bit of washing soda (sodium carbonate, not bicarbonate). It acts like grit in the mostly water-free lanolin-based hand cleaner, and helps scrub dirt out of the ridges in your skin. Then rinse your hands with warm water, and the washing soda helps dissolve the lanolin, and turn it into actual soap. Your hands wind up real clean, and not slimy or sticky. Washing soda is a mild base, and does not sting or burn, if used sparingly in this fashion.

611 Didn't have much of an experience with scouts either. The org in our neighborhood had inconsistent meetings and what meetings we did have were unimpressive. Getting badges was something you did on your own time and taught yourself. Camping and hiking? AFAIK, they didn't do much of that, if any. After we had moved to a more rural area, my brother wanted to get involved, but between my dad being tightfisted (they were poorly funded) and unenthusiastic I don't know if they did much. If the adults don't give a shit, neither will the kids. I did more in RAs than I did in scouts, but I had to drop that when we started moving around.

It very well could.

~He laughed
inwardly, with a pleasantly reticent chuckle, as he thought of Lady
Carbury dealing with his views of Protestantism,--as he thought also
of the numerous historical errors into which that clever lady must
inevitably fall in writing about matters of which he believed her to
know nothing. But he was quite alive to the fact that a favourable
notice in the "Breakfast Table" of his very thoughtful work, called
the "New Tale of a Tub," would serve him, even though written by the
hand of a female literary charlatan, and he would have no compunction
as to repaying the service by fulsome praise in the "Literary
Chronicle."

Would I salute? Maybe. It would depend on what style of dickdom you had affected on that occasion.
I used to have a Gadsden flag on my bumper, until my ex-boss' wife
rear-ended me and they had to replace the whole thing. So now I have no
bumper stickers. And the rear window is too small for such things.

Good grief, not saying I'll never pick up a Trollope novel, but it sounds like something best read aloud, and one would hope that the characters and plot are interesting.

729 I'd like to discuss the strippers I met while running a tanning salon, but this may not be the...

...okay. So I meet this stripper who works up the street. We'll call her "Melanie". "Melanie" is into me and "nobody really gets the strippers.". ...So my idiot friends keep reminding me.

...well, I do. For the price of one lap-dance. Ten bucks to have a woman help me up the stairs and make magic all over Your Friendly Neighborhood Slapweasel.

Here's the thing: She's a 'Stripper With a Heart of Gold' and doesn't do blow-jobs.

WTF, right?

I could have seen this in many ways... "She's a stripper that likes my personality and she's Not That Kind of Girl."

..."She hates blow-jobs."

..."She could be the Mother of my Children and perhaps she's right."

-OR

..."This doesn't suck and for all the wrong reasons."

I chose the Final Solution and dumped her within a month.

I didn't kill her.

She wasn't Jewish.

730 Has anyone here read Trollope? I've seen him referenced and wondered about picking one up.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at December 14, 2018 01:42 AM (IDhUW)


Yes. Quite a few of his books, actually. While his Barchester Chronicles series, about a church vicarage, are good, IMHO, the best of the lot is his 'The Pallisers' series of novels. (The books were made into a very good BBC production, 1974-75, as seen here on PBS titled, aptly, 'The Pallisers', with the scrumptious Susan Hampshire; that show is also known for the introduction of Jeremy Irons.) By today's standards, the books are a bore due to the long-drawn out plots. But if you enjoy books satirizing the foibles of the English nobility and clergy, they are a fun read.

I will say this about Trollope the writer: He worked for the post office. He'd get up at five every morning to write until time to go to work around 7. By keeping to such a schedule, he was able to crank out quite a few books. If Trollope had the internet back in his day, along with the ONT, he would never have written one sentence of one paragraph of one page of one chapter of one book.

731 were I going to have a bumper sticker then the gadsen flag would likely be it. since cops sometimes look unfavorably upon the gadsen flag as a sign of militia membership does not seem wise to have one.

last thing I need is to get into another shootout.

734 you should never date strippers. everyone should date a stripper at least once. but don't do it, it will turn out as badly as everyone tells you.

sure it would seem like the great thing to do when you are in college, with your dads credit card, blowing a wad of his money at the club. then it is really cool when she hits the college parties with you and brings her friends. but then when you take your out for lunch, in the daylight, with clothes and no make up, well.

737 you know, one thing that is kind of a damper on the whole dating a stripper thing is when you go home for spring break the stripper calls your house and leaves a message for you to call her back and she leaves the strip club number. some people might have a nosy mom that calls the number.

If someone breaks into my house I'm under no obligation to feed them, cloth them, or provide them with water. They'll be very lucky if they don't get a shotgun blast to center mass.
