Revealed: The "Stanford Prison Study" We've Been Hearing About for 50 Years as a Progressive Cautionary Tale Was, Get This, a Scripted Pageant From the Beginning, Designed for the Admitted Purposes of Leftist Activism

Wow. Another leftwing "study" exposed as a lie.

How many does that make, now?

Oh, right: All of them.

I took some time off and worked for an organization that was helping children in Appalachia and the South. You wouldn't believe you were in America.
Meanwhile we have assholes crying on TV and millions of taxpayer dollars being pouted into people who are not even U.S. citizens.
People who are largely gaming the system. Who have other legal means to immigrate, and ignore it for their own self interest.
And these fuckers support them. Oh, look at the crying baby!!

But it's a good election issue to use against Trump or something.

Here's the tell: they're NEVER surprised by their results. Every "experiment" they do merely confirms what they thought going in.

As a no-shit scientist, I was surprised all the time. I once synthesized a compound that no one thought could exist. Everyone was totally skeptical, and was sure there was something wrong with the result, until we finished the crystal structure. There it was.

But I guess physical scientists are just not as bright as social scientists.

116 57 Amazing how many "scientific studies" cannot be replicated. And when I say "amazing", I mean "not amazing".

More often than not, and I think much more often, experiments aren't replicable. So all those libraries full of references and academic papers? Mostly crap. Well-defined, articulate, peer-reviewed, highly specific crap.

But they do represent an astonishing amount of money wasted, so they have that going for them.
Posted by: AnonyBotymousDrivel at June 21, 2018 03:12 PM (H8S+R)


Primarily a problem with social science and biomedical research, both of which are notoriously bad.

http://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pmed.0020124

Research in physics and chemistry (except climastrology, of course) published in major journals are generally replicable. In my experience, the worst offenses are people exaggerating yields in reactions, but that's not a big deal - the reaction still works, just as well as advertised.

Fraud in chemistry tends to be our Third World friends publishing in crappy obscure journals that no one ever reads, and about things that no one cares about.

So that's what we're up against, for now, whenever we wonder why Trump can't get anything done legislatively, and why so many problems go on and on.

It's ALSO why he has to tread very carefully with the Mueller investigation, considering that conservatives are outnumbered 40 vs 60 in the Senate.

The Goodlatte bill wasn't even that conservative, but at least it would provide funding for the wall. 193. That's how many representatives are willing to even kind of support anything Trump wants. 193, with 231 against.

Chinese research is iffy, for some values of iffy. I never published a range of percent yields. Only my best yield. As I was taught.

With better NMRs and other instruments like GC-MS, the earlier spectral data can be off, because it was not as pure. Seen this myself. But not fraud like a lot of social sciences.

At least we can prove the Dunning-Krugar theory by reading the paper. Or is that because I keep forgetting about Gell-Mann amnesia?

When government is granting the money, the waste will flow. Now, if all research were private, the waste would drop precipitously. That's not to say there's no proportion of research that is helpful when it pushes new boundaries but fails, but that doesn't excuse bad science in reaching a conclusion. Public funding of academia is necessary but it is clearly lacking desperate, diligent oversight.

As it stands, academia is institutionally wasteful and, even worse, wrong.

152 Actually the shock experiment was correct and the left hates it. Milgram has been replicated several times. The reason the left hates it is it explains their stupidity very well (desire to please authority figures). The other aspect they hate? Milgram simply reminded the shock givers that they did not have to obey the authority figure and they stopped giving shocks. So the conclusion of the study was that in order to avoid another Holocaust (Milgram was studying why good Germans went along with the final solution) was to remind them that they shouldn't. The horde is right and brilliant. Psychology is common sense and although I have a degree in it; I agree it isn't brain surgery.

168 They are being bussed and transported across Mexico while the Mexican gov. laughs. There are numerous SJW groups in Mexico from the USA, working there to transport these people and coach them on what to say when they get to the border.

All they have to do is go to the nearest US consulate in Southern Mexico when they cross into Mexico and claim asylum. But that is not the purpose of these SJW groups.

Like DeNiro and Fonda, they pop off because their words and beliefs are empty. They have no legitimate power -- only the power to influence mentally unstable people to violent acts.

As was noted, the trained seals will clap and Nixon will see that as validation.

But when an ICE agent is killed, she will be nowhere to be found.

180 Milgram also ticked off people who refuse to believe that humans are capable of doing evil to others simply to submit to authority figures and/or simply go with the flow of what was going on. It touches on how easy it is to give up your autonomy to an authority figure or a group. This is why many lefties write articles like the one in the Independent (cited by another poster). They intrinsically do not want to admit that people are capable of evil simply to appease authority or go along with the crowd. Current events prove Milgram as well as the follow ups that have been done. Common sense

The one where they found that certain students would raise the voltage and keep raising it if told to by "authority".

That one. That's what I thought this one was.

And also, in conjunction with what we've seen done in the Climate Alarmist field does this also mean that so called studies and antropology finds that bear upon Evolution are also flawed?

Seems like they derive a lot of so called knowledge from a lil bitty scrap of skull or arm bone.

How honest have past "scientists" really been?

Only that which can be proven and I believe that means many of the so called missing links may have been either messed with or lied about.

Many of those same people were atheists and were tickled to death to be able to "show" how evolution was proven.

Yet we still lack so many intermediate stage fossils. Even Darwin questioned the lack.

None of the participants were aware that it wasn't real and the people receiving the shock acted so well that after the experiment those giving the shocks had emotional issues because they truly believed they hurt someone else. The studies that have replicated Milgram have followed the more modern framework for human studies. The study was done in 1963, btw.

Media Misreports Trump's "Elite" Put-Down... Because Of Course They Do

Trump is being widely misreported as having attacked "the elite" for being elite.

In fact, of course, he denied that they were elite at all.

Which is what upsets these self-proclaimed non-elites so much. So they -- unconsciously, I could imagine, just as a defense reaction -- rewrite his remarks as acknowledging their eliteness and then attacking them for their eliteness.

No. He's calling them non-elite. People who lack actual achievements and true status-markers and for whom, therefore, pseudo-status-markers, such as vociferous agreement with the progressive dogma of the day, serves as their only badge of "eliteness."



By the way: In addition to denigrating the non-elites calling themselves elite, he also goes the extra mile of insult and says that "The Deplorables" are actually smarter and better than the alleged "elite."

Oh, and he also taunted a man-bun wearing protester as "darling," wondering if xe was a man or a woman.

I'm sure that bothers the sexually-confused pseudo-elite, too.

Now they're naked and afraid. They'll get over this, of course, because they and their friends will, of course, validate their elite status. But this is how it's done.

In addition to denigrating the non-elites calling themselves elite, he also goes the extra mile of insult and says that "The Deplorables" are actually smarter and better than the alleged "elite."

I believe he is genuinely dismayed by the unceasing attacks by the "elites" on his supporters. That impromptu Doocy interview on the WH lawn? Trump made it a point to assert that his supporters were smart and educated. This came a day after the stork-page texts that revealed their contempt for smelly walmart Trump supporters.
He also stood up for Sarah Sanders, understanding full well the abuse that was visited on her by Samantha Bint (who is losing sponsors by the minute thanks to the efforts of one Catholic, who she slanders every chance she gets.)
So when he gets the chance to IN YO FACE all these assholes, these corrupt, lame, cowardly tools of the Deep State, he hits them where it hurts.

Even the very best reporters are writing about other people, who actually are elite.

226 Well, they ARE the elite, that is, the chosen ones.
The question is WHO chose them?
Surely it was not God, nor custom, nor tradition.

Nor was it by any standard of objective merit, unless you want to say that "being just like us" or "being of the Party" is merit. This ends up in a chicken-and-egg quandry.

The fact is that, for one reason or another, they chose themselves. As Thomas Sowell puts it, they are self-anointed. Like Napoleon rejecting any rule transcending Napoleon, they crowned themselves.

Trump being a builder understands the hard work that goes into building a building and a business. My boss is similar in that he started from nothing and early on realized he couldn't do it without the help of others who are just as committed and hard working as he is/was. Its why I've been with my boss for 28years he appreciates the hard work and the grind, the fakers (Swamp and lazy mofos) will never last around Trump or my boss.

I bought a copy of the Chemical Rubber Company's* "Handbook of Laboratory Safety" because getting chemistry researchers to wear safety glasses - all the time - was a perennial battle.

The Handbook contained numerous full color photographs of horrific eye injuries that had been sustained by those who eschewed safety glasses.**

Problem solved.

*CRC is the outfit that publishes the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, for those who know that book.

** A guy in Berkeley lost his sight entirely, when, although was wearing safety glasses, he took them off momentarily to wipe his brow. At just that instant his reaction exploded blinding him. It was so tragic.

417 385 I used to do oilfield work in the 80's - I enjoyed it, but after 10 years one of the reasons I knew I had to quit was that I was one of the last guys I knew who'd been around for a while, and who still had all of his fingers. Lotta stubbys around the shop. So many ways to lose one when there's so much big, heavy steel being moved around!

It's actually pretty common to see synthetic chemists who are missing fingers, or parts thereof, or who have scars from chemical burns. I've had the latter, and one looked so bad that the physician, after examining it, told me - to my horror - he thought I might retain some function in the hand.

Turned out it looked worse than it was (it did look pretty bad, I have to admit), and it eventually healed OK.

Trump was drafted by the white hats in the DIA, military, and NSA who want to take the country back and give it back to We The People. They have had a plan to go after all the criminals and clean up and clean out the Deep State within all institutions. It's a populist movement and Q posts info on 4chan then 8chan for anons to do research on to verify and spread the word organically. Future proves the past.

Jordan Peterson Files $1.5 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Wilfrid Laurier, The Canadian University That Called Him an Incompetent Nazi While Intimidating Lindsey Shephard

Yes. Finally.

Let the "Nazis" start suing their enemies into the poor-house. Just like they did in WW2 (obviously).

University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson has launched a $1.5-million defamation suit against Wilfrid Laurier University, two of its professors and a former gender and equity manager for suggesting he was “analogous to Adolf Hitler.”

The statement of claim, prepared by lawyer Howard Levitt and filed Monday, says Peterson was falsely labelled as incompetent, sexist, misogynist, dangerous and racist in a now infamous disciplinary meeting with Wilfrid Laurier University teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd.

...


"So I think this is a warning, let's say, to other careless administrators and professors who allow their ideological presuppositions to get the best of them to be a bit more careful with what they say and do," he said.

34 Yeah this isn't so much people getting "carried away" its a specific and systematic effort to reduce every single person who isn't sufficiently leftist to a nazi monster racist hater in the public eye. This isn't like the past where they'd claim someone was just wrong or mistaken, or had a different viewpoint they disagreed with.

See, all those losers and freaks and human detritus that used to hang out by the bus stop and coffee shops that called people fascists for requiring shoes in their store and nazis for calling the police on their graffiti?

They're in charge of schools, newspapers, movies, even businesses. They took over while we weren't paying attention. So now they use the same idiotic rhetoric... but have the power behind them to make it stick and hurt.

It was mostly an introduction to classical ways of thinking for those who hadn't been exposed to that sort of thing. Hell, it wasn't even particularly masculine. I think it truly exposes the intellectual bankruptcy of leftist dogma that any level of independent thinking, even non-political, is verboten.

I suspect it's because he's "inside the walls" in Academia, and in closed pseudo-religious systems (which is what Academia is, now) "BURN THE HERETIC!!!" always gets people more excited than any other endeavor. Perhaps they are correct to see him as a huge threat, because his very existence inside the walls challenges their own claims to Supreme Moral Authority.

they couldn't care less about what people like us say, because to them we are just Barbarians and are to be ignored. So they hate us, but they don't spend this kind of emotional energy on us. The Heretic, though - BURN HIM!!! BURN!!!!

Posted by: Kreplach at June 21, 2018 12:43 PM (xQUuw)


Can't be done, pardner.

Fascism and Totalitarianism is the Nature of Man. Its just What We Do. History shows that - at least my limited reading of it does. My study of Human Nature shows it.

The more ambitious the Man, the more he'll use any means available to manipulate, coerce, and control those around him.

You want to limit Man's ability to do that shit ? Limit his means, and/or his free time. Whatever you do ... don't build him an apparatus to use. You know ... like a big damn government.

What this story is missing is the fact that Lindsay Shepherd started this. She is also filling a similar lawsuit and he is copying her suit. His idea is that there is a better chance that one of them win if they both file.

They are also filing for all court costs, which you can do in Canada.

Here's his video (40 minutes):

107 In China, they don't have a corruption problem. They don't even have high levels of corruption. In China corruption is simply how things get done, have always gotten done, and always will get done. They don't have any concept of government or business without bribes, kickbacks, extortion, and theft. The only time it gets punished is when someone who is even more crooked wants to get a rival or competitor out of the way.

That's why they build bridges with sections packed with garbage, their pollution is so horrendous, their buildings literally fall over, their waterways are poison, their foods are filled with carcinogens, etc. It doesn't even matter what laws are passed, they are completely ignored for the right price.

I have zero fear of Chinese technology until they can prove unequivocally that they are able to produce and repeatedly produce something impressive. Not a one-off show piece, not a working model, not a video. Actual tech.

I agree with you completely on that! It was the idea of our founders to try and build a government that was effective, but limited. We've just been too damn good at getting around all of the limitations that were there, and have got no one to blame but ourselves.

There's a reason this is an eternal conundrum that can never be solved, except for short periods of time. The only way to "limit his means" involves the use of compulsive systems that are exactly what we don't want, except without those, man is no longer limited, and he will immediately set about to building them.

That was true during the Obama administration, which is why we suddenly got "surges" of kids coming across the border, and why there were also surges of kids being bought, sold, kidnapped, etc., south of the border by adult criminals who wanted to use the kids as shields for themselves when crossing the border illegally.

Trump has said everybody illegally crossing will be prosecuted, and he's still saying that. If we do it any other way, then we're creating incentives for these kids to be used and abused, which is what the left claims they don't want.

Even if that same speech was directed against a non-public figure in America, it still wouldn't make it as defamation. You are allowed to state your opinion about things in America. If I say of you that I have heard the way you speak to women (assuming that's true), and that it seems to me you have a disrespectful attitude when talking to them, and therefore you are a sexist - that's not defamation. It's stupid, but it is opinion, so allowed.

145 A railgun is a beautiful anti-ship and shore installation weapon, it delivers incredible power for not a lot of cost. That's ideal for a fixed, large target

The problem is, that's all its good for. It is basically impossible to use to hit things over the horizon, it has to be aimed by turning the ship (a huge step back in development), and it isn't any use against anything significantly mobile.

So neat idea for some applications (hitting big space ships, for instance) but very limited in the real world. Its like the carbon rod bombardment idea (used in GI Joe): neat concept but really not very useful in 99.9% of situations.

146 Emmie, June is usually pretty nice here. Actually it's rare for it to get into the 90s in June. July and August, for sure.

It does tend to rain rather a lot in the late spring here, but that makes everything very green and pretty. And the rain is usually in the form of thunderstorms, which don't last all that long but do drop a lot of water.

Right now it's sunny and 79 at my house. Zero complaints!

I was amused to see how the ship came to its end - it had been converted to an early Torpedo testing ship, and in 1915 it launched a torpedo that "Ran a circular course and punctured the hull".

When you have a ruling class that despises God, there is no brotherhood under the Creator.
When you have a ruling class that rejects the very concept of nationality, there is no solidarity in citizenship. When you have a ruling class that declares abortion to be a sacred 'right,' there is no compelling bond of family.

On what moral basis can you demand ANY sacrifice for the supposed good of others?

231 203 Looked up that page on the USS Vesuvius, interesting, I'd never heard of it! Actually very innovative for 1888, that's some real Steam Punk there.

I was amused to see how the ship came to its end - it had been converted to an early Torpedo testing ship, and in 1915 it launched a torpedo that "Ran a circular course and punctured the hull". Fortunately the Captain was able to run the ship aground before it sank under the water, so no lives were lost. But that was the end of the Vesuvius - sunk by its own action.

Even if that same speech was directed against a non-public figure in America, it still wouldn't make it as defamation. You are allowed to state your opinion about things in America. If I say of you that I have heard the way you speak to women (assuming that's true), and that it seems to me you have a disrespectful attitude when talking to them, and therefore you are a sexist - that's not defamation. It's stupid, but it is opinion, so allowed.

On the other hand, if I claim I saw you kicking a dog, that's a factual assertion. Assuming it's untrue, it's defamation.

So, my apologies. I hadn't realized that the problem was localized in the state, and I should have, because California has the exact same distribution. Absent SF and LA, the state is pretty conservative.

He had so much money coming in he could've set it up so that even his great-grandkids would be lighting cigars with hundred-dollar bills but instead he went on an extended spending spree that wiped him out.

Lisa Marie Presley is in the same boat. She had ownership of Elvis Presley Enterprises that was valued at $100 million. She should have been set for life, but she sold 85% of her Elvis holdings to re-fund the trust fund Elvis had left her and which she had depleted with her extravagant spending. After the sale, she again pissed away most of her principal (which, if managed conservatively, should have been enough to give her a couple of million in discretionary income per year, without ever touching the principal). Now she's suing her money manager, she's got millions in debt, and she has an ex-husband (with whom she had a post-nuptial agreement) suing her for alimony payments.

281 What are your thoughts on Peterson's position that the greatest challenge we face today is the wealth gap?
Posted by: Brian in New Orleans at June 21, 2018 01:25 PM (UBzPO)

Its bullshit. Its more stoking the fires of coveting.

Our poverty level is at the 95th percentile of incomes world wide. 95th. We are so prosperous as a nation, our "poor" check the balance of their SNAP cards thru an app on a $300.00 smart phone.

Through market forces, we as a nation, HAVE eliminated true poverty.

Wealth gap is a red herring. Its a tool to confiscate from the top. But somehow that confiscation never quites gets to the bottom, now does it.

This.

There is no poverty in the U.S. Sure, people have less than others, but anyone who has a cell phone, a microwave, a color TV, cable, designer sneaks, etc. is NOT poor. Something like > 95% of households have color TVs (I looked it up once, but don't remember exactly). Being envious of what others have does not in itself mean you're poor.

Poor means you lack food, clothing, shelter. If you have those, you're not poor. I've traveled extensively in the Third World, and THERE you see real, no-shit poverty.

284 The interrogation of Lindsey Shephard was enlightening to say the least. I marveled at innumerable points at the intolerant Groupthink, the wholesale antithesis of scholarly and academic freedom, the innate oppressive bias of the professors, the blinding arrogance of insular scolds, and the all-encompassing terror Jordan Peterson instills in the academics' bubble. There are days worth of posts wrapped in that video and that all derives simply from a mere five minute excerpt of JP via a TA who thinks university is a place to challenge ideas.

Holy cow what a freakin' mess. I find the University rather, oh what's the word... "problematic".

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

America was the end result of a centuries-long filtering process that left insufficiently brave, motivated, entrepreneurial, hard working people to the vicissitudes of European life. There is a reason we left and they stayed, and I would prefer that we keep it that way. Much of the world's bounty is a result of the greatness of American Exceptionalism, and to dismiss it as an artifact or to demean it as merely a birthright is to insult the millions of people who sacrificed and sweated and bled and died to create the United States.


What a toad. He lives in a fine suburb, firmly ensconced in the ivory tower, where ignorant star-struck undergraduates worship at his feet. His greatest triumph is to impress 18-year-olds whose primary goal is to bang the hot chick in the third row of his lecture hall.

Maybe if he had any inkling of what it means to absorb third-world scum into his expensive town I would take him more seriously.

The joke is: What did socialists use before candles?

Electricity.

Nikki Haley For President 2024
Nikki Haley Pummels UN Human Rights Council
"For too long the human rights council has been a protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias," Haley said, adding that calls from the U.S. for the council to reform have not been heeded. "The world’s most inhumane regimes continue to escape scrutiny, and the council continues politicizing and scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in their ranks."

******

This could not be happening in a better place. The schadenfreude is just delicious!
The First Burger Built by a Robot Is About to Hit the Bay Area
$15 entry-level, unskilled labor? Hah! And let's not pretend that hand-made fast-food burgers are any better. The reason they are relatively cheap and fast is that the production process is quite efficient, and based on low skill, low wage labor. Economics says that when low skill labor becomes expensive, alternatives appear. This is not rocket surgery, but apparently they don't teach Econ 1 any more.

I think the problem is, Main Street WANTS sales tax from online retailers, even Republican small business owners.

They hate the competition.

So that whole Chamber of Commerce crowd will largely side with every state collecting a sales tax on every transaction. And of course Democrats will love any new tax to shower on their public sector unions.

So I see very little chance on the law changing and I think the SC decision basically says the states can override the Feds anyway.

85 The ACLU just issued new case guidelines that specify for the very first time the organization has abandoned it's traditional role of defending free speech. As much as the ACLU's sanctimony annoys all of us some times, and some people all the time, you had to give it credit for remaining true to American values is defending obnoxious speech.


This is the organization that routinely defended KKK and Nazi sympathizers, all in order to make the point that free speech inoculates a culture against taking the kooks and scumbags too seriously. Now, with the change in policy, they won't defend speech that causes "serious harm" to "marginalized peoples" as of this new policy being adopted. The ACLU has lost it's way.


Since anyone can defend speech just slightly outside the mainstream this change means no one will actual free speech.

Posted by: SturmToddler

______________

That's probably the biggest question, can states force individual sellers to collect a sales tax or will it be on the platform itself that collects it?

My guess is almost every state will sue Ebay to collect it for them.

But anyone thinking that this new revenue means existing taxes will somehow go down is delusional. This money will be spent on new entitlements before it's even collected.

About fifteen minutes after they figured out doing business in Mexico ain't all its cracked up to be.

Listen to me here peeps.

First, Big Business was ALL IN on NAFTA ... because they were going to build their shiny new plants in Mexico, with that sweet, sweet Cheap Mexican Labor.

Well - here's the problem ... you've still got Mexican Infrastructure and Mexican Politics. Doing business there sucks ... as the big boys are finding out. I know - I've worked that country.

So - the Economist is going for the next best thing ... sweet, sweet Cheap Mexican Labor on US Soil with US Infrastructure and US Politics.

They don't give a fuck that, down the line, US Infrastructure and Politics will look like Mexico's. That's a problem for another revenue quarter.

That's not the half of it here in Cali. There are specific counties/local sales tax issues. Some are 8.25%. 8.5%. or 9% as and example. Imagine tracking your sale to various localities and then filing said paperwork. They truly do not understand what they have unleashed. Assuming it is to where it is shipped - thus technically "sold" there - and not where shipped from.

Posted by: rickb223 at June 21, 2018 12:04 PM (OZZ16)


Willowed from down below.


The purchaser of an online item pays the sales tax. The tax is collected by the seller of the online item and sends the tax to the state the purchaser is purchasing from. So whatever state you live in, the items you purchase online can be taxed at your state's rate, collected from you at the time of purchase and then sent by the retailer to your state treasurer. Just like it is done now when you show up at Johnny's Fish and Fur and buy a new rod and reel.

"We sent it to the Office of Deputy Attorney General," Horowitz said.

Yes, but that's because the law in question does not prohibit this. The Court basically created a physical presence rule and has now overturned it. Perhaps all the Court did was overturn a precedent it should never have issued. Now collecting is different because then you get into areas of personal jurisdiction. Not sure how this case will affect that area of the law.

Like I said ... all problems down the line, as far as The Economist, The Chamber of Commerce, Big XYZ Company, etc... are concerned.

Folks ... you show me how any combination of either Open Trade and/or Open Borders can result in anything other than an "averaging" of the economic and/or socio-economic prospects of the two parties involved. I'll wait.

I have no problem with Open Trade with any country of similar economic prospects as our own. I also have no problem with Aggressive Immigration Policies with any country of similar socio-political traditions as our own.

But to pretend that we can somehow meld the populations of ANY two countries, and not end up with a society that looks like an average composite of the two countries, is the kind of bullshit sold to those without the education needed to grasp the concepts ... as well as those with so much fucking education that they can rationalize how it will turn out to be different.

Rationalization being one of those nice, fancy words people prefer to the much more descriptive and accurate phrase "bullshit themselves".

Agree completely, both with you and with Scott Adams. The optics of "ripping babies away from their mothers!!!" was bad, but now Trump was able to exercise authority and he's defused that.

Yeah I think they had a winning position with the "RIPPED FROM MOTHERS" lie, because a lot of people emotionally reacted to that and had bad feelz, it was compelling. Even knowing what they were doing and why -- even knowing the kids were better off in these housing facilities for a few weeks than they had been months previously -- it was a struggle, it felt wrong. Even knowing that every nation on earth does the same thing, because its the only sane thing to do, it felt bad.

Posted by: Dack Thrombosis at June 21, 2018 12:06 PM (4ErVI)


Haley had nothing to do with statues. She was at the UN when that little brouhaha flared up.

Really, this whole "Haley is just Jeb in a dress" bit is tiring.

I admit to being a bit of a fanboi for her (right after Romney delivered his concession speech I started pushing Walker/Haley 2016) but this is a thing that bothers the crap out of me.

Haley was one of Palin's Mama Grizzlies. She is for lower taxes, pro 2A, against abortion, and appointed Tim Scott to the Senate when Jim Demint bailed. And she is not bad looking for a politician, which is shallow, but not nothing.

What she gets criticism for is removing the Confederate flag from the State House grounds in the wake of that shitbird shooting people in the church in Charleston.

And, sorry, its a Democrat flag and I say let them have it. A Democrat put it over the State House in 1965, and a Republican removed it from the dome to the gorunds, and then another Republican (Haley) retired it to the State Museum.

If we are going to toss someone who supported all the right things as a Republican state legislator and as Governor, and has been a smash hit as Ambassador to the UN, well, then we deserve what we get.

Posted by: SturmToddler


Since this ruling was about a South Dakota law, that law exempts small out of state sellers with less than $100k per year sales in the state, or less than 200 transactions per year.

But since each state can make their own laws, some states (like CA, hahahahaha) will try and enforce the tax on EVERYBODY, if history is any guide.

282 The experiment with Koko was just one big exercise in confirmation bias. The 'conversation' transcripts they released to the public were just the ones that appeared to make Koko seem intelligent. I don't think anybody except the researchers ever saw the raw, unedited data.

Yeah monkeys and apes are great at mimicry and learning patterns, and they'll use the patterns to their advantage such as getting affection and goodies. Its not that they learned a language, its that they learned patterns that make the humans respond the way they want to.

I think it is an incredible mistake from an economic standpoint for the internet tax on sales. It will kill small internet only business. Although software will be developed to help with the myriad of sales taxes for every location, small businesses are gonna be at a disadvantage. The collection and dissemination of those taxes will be horrendous.

304 What they don't seem to understand is the underlying infrastructure that allows them to live so well is tended and improved by those with education paid for by their hard work.

The people that want to come here so badly are bereft of even the basic education necessary to make USE of the infrastructure let alone maintain it and improve it.

If sufficient number of the uneducated arrive here forcing out the so called birthright people then their fine houses and high resale value along with other accoutrements will sink into the same level of festering feculent slums that exist where these people come from. Instead of staying in their homeland and improving on it they choose to come here and reap rewards that are undeserved and that they couldn't supply for themselves on their own.

So no butt head we're tired of you telling us how great diversity is when all we see are crime, disease, overcrowding and increased taxes.

308 if that happens, a soft landing will need to be found for Mike Pence.

I dont think the very decent but unspectacular and too-easily mockable Pence has the cultural awareness and communicative toughness required to successfully navigate the next several presidential cycles as the head of my party, to the point that he could win the nomination on "Its His Turn" then lose big to another identity-politics-only but charismatic and culturally connected Dem nominee promising a Bolivaran paradiso.

I believe Nikki Haley can beat such a Demo, Pence I dont think he can.

Very handsome. Look at the jewelry, gold sleeve garters, pearls, diamonds, gold trim on riding coat, lotsa lace, etc. A very handsome prize wearing her net worth.

Interesting on the Copley portraits because women in middle age didn't have cosmetics, etc. Wonder how they got rid of the moustaches?

Technically very nice, but a little too sure of her worth without the humor or other interests.

It may be an American thing. Where the Europeans wanted to portray a mask of nobility, sophistication, and aristocratic tastes, the Colonies, especially in Boston, wanted more realistic, down-to-earth, Common-Man imagery. Copley seems to have been the go-to-guy for this idea.

Except it's not about the right side of the equation, it's the left. I'm perfectly fine with getting paid. I like money.


What I don't care for, is endless walls of portraits in museums, of long dead nobodies (who were "somebodies in their lifetimes). In some ways, I'd rather look at the walls themselves, as no doubt some master craftsmen painted and sculpted woodwork, as full of talent as the pictures.

204 Where does the word jerk come form anyway?
Posted by: Cannibal Bob at June 21, 2018 09:59 AM (2CQCl)

jerk - "tedious and ineffectual person," 1935, American English carnival slang, of uncertain origin. Perhaps from jerkwater "petty, inferior, insignificant" [Barnhart, OED]; alternatively from, or influenced by, verbal phrase jerk off "masturbate" [Rawson]. The lyric in "Big Rock Candy Mountain," sometimes offered as evidence of earlier use, apparently is "Where they hung the Turk [not jerk] that invented work."

I'm thinking it was actually derived somehow from the "soda jerk". Some beta thought working at the soda fountain would get him some action. Unfortunately, his glasses, greasy hair, pimples, corduroy pants, Schwinn bicycle at the age of 18, and lack of understanding of the female hindbrain earned him an unfortunate sobriquet.

Best acting in the world.

The players are barely touched by an opponent and fall to the ground writhing in excruciating pain.

They also walk around -- all 140 pounds worth in their silk shorts and flowing locks of hair-- and act all badass as though are Beowulf and Chuck Norris combined.

Then, when they lose, they act like someone has ripped their hearts out, crying and kneeling on the field and appealing to God to remove the injustice in their life.

Okay, seriously, the allure is that if you're in some 3rd world shithole, and none of the kids have anything to wear except maybe one pair of dirty shorts and a torn t-shirt, and some old raggedy ball floats up on the surf, you still have more than enough equipment to play the game. And the bigger the teams, the better, since your village always has at least 20 or 30 kids wandering around with nothing to do but cause trouble.

The acting is superior (if you're into that kind of acting).
=========
The unmanly cheating is repugnant.

Flopping on the ground, writhing in agony, not getting the call, and then jumping up and running full speed after the ball. Replay shows no contact whatsoever.

Its as if they have no concept whatsoever of honor, virtue or manliness. Which I would not object to, if they want to live that way fine, but I do object to showing it on tv so kids watch it and are socialized to think that's the way to behave in life.

Its like Golf is the only sport left were honor means anything.

249 Best acting in the world.

The players are barely touched by an opponent and fall to the ground writhing in excruciating pain.

They also walk around -- all 140 pounds worth in their silk shorts and flowing locks of hair-- and act all badass as though are Beowulf and Chuck Norris combined.

Then, when they lose, they act like someone has ripped their hearts out, crying and kneeling on the field and appealing to God to remove the injustice in their life.

Pitiful.

No offense to teh laydies, but girls soccer is boring as hell, because they put 22 players on the field, and generally between 19 and 21 of them have no actual skills.


They could shave the field to... well, about a quarter of its size, double the number of players, and then maybe... MAYBE it could be interesting.


Truthfully, having grown up in a soccer crazy town, going to school with guys who won national championships in college, and had successful pro careers, the game was HARD for me when I was that age, and it was a thrill to be on the field... when the big boys let me.


Seriously, at one point in my life, I thought I was the king shit of athletics. Until I got to high school, and tried to compete with the guys who mostly looked like ordinary dudes. Mad skills and incredible stamina.


It was a great game for me... way back when. But you couldn't pay me to watch a pro game.

I was in Sao Paolo a couple years ago. Turned on the morning news as I was getting dressed and they had a story about a match between two Brazilian club teams.

One player got pissed at the ref for what he thought was a bad call and he took a swing at the ref. Ref pulls out a knife and stabs the player to death.

Fans swarm the field, mob the ref, cut his head off and mount it on a spike in the middle of the field.

324 I was in Sao Paolo a couple years ago. Turned on the morning news as I was getting dressed and they had a story about a match between two Brazilian club teams.

One player got pissed at the ref for what he thought was a bad call and he took a swing at the ref. Ref pulls out a knife and stabs the player to death.

Fans swarm the field, mob the ref, cut his head off and mount it on a spike in the middle of the field.

They took that one seriously."

I got to go to a pro soccer game in Guadalajara once. It was really quite entertaining live, big bands play constantly, there are dancing girls for the beer distributors with very little on always doing stuff in front of the stands while the game is going on, so it really was a lot of fun. Once in a while you look up and see some guys in the field doing stuff, so it was like going to a major league ball game in that respect.

I noted something you don't see here - at the start of the game, the referee was escorted to the middle of the field by 4 armed officers with flak jackets and M-16's. At the end of the game, he stood at the center of the field until the 4 guys with M-16's came out to take him back to his dressing room.

That's when you know you're sure not in America anymore.

Posted by: What's a Seawolf? at June 21, 2018 09:51 AM "

Okay, seriously, the allure is that if you're in some 3rd world shithole, and none of the kids have anything to wear except maybe one pair of dirty shorts and a torn t-shirt, and some old raggedy ball floats up on the surf, you still have more than enough equipment to play the game. And the bigger the teams, the better, since your village always has at least 20 or 30 kids wandering around with nothing to do but cause trouble.

Who cares if anyone scores? The only point is to keep the kids busy enough so that they don't go around starting fires and stealing chickens.

I had a friend who went to a soccer game in Bolivia once, the wealthier patrons sit down low, next to the field, the poor sit up high in the bleachers, the cheap seats overhanging the better seats. He said that when you were in the good seats, you really had to watch out for the pobres above you, because they loved to set their programs in fire and then throw them down at the people sitting underneath them. But he said those really weren't so bad, they were easy to dodge, it was the tequila bottles coming down from high bleachers that you really had to worry about.

The officers had reported in saying they found nothing and were going to another call. They had to wait for a cyclist before leaving. Then like an apparition Justine shows up. Harrity says he had enough time to pull his weapon out of the holster - remember he is seated and the driver.

He next reports the sound of a light bulb dropping to the floor and a flash. Noor had fired.

And Justine's last words were either "I'm dead" or "I'm dying."

11:41pm the two officers start performing CPR on Justine. She is pronounced dead ten minutes later.

I doubt Melania has any kind of authority on this. Not to be dismissive, but this is SOP for the Secret Service.

Real or imagined threats against the First Family, etc.

Fonda is a terrorist and should be treated accordingly. He made that quite clear yesterday with repeated comments on Twitter.

Oh, and now his "agent" is apologizing, because Sony came down hard on him.

400 Sony Pictures has released a statement on Peter Fonda, the actor who has sent vile, disturbing threats to women and children associated with the Trump administration.

Sony Pictures Classics, which will be releasing a movie co-starring Fonda in a matter of days, said in a statement sent to The Daily Caller that Fonda's comments were "abhorrent, reckless and dangerous" and that "we condemn them completely." The statement goes on to explain that Fonda has only a "minor role" in the film and the studio will not be pulling it in fairness to the other actors in the ensemble cast. Sony's full statement:

"Peter Fonda's comments are abhorrent, reckless and dangerous, and we condemn them completely. It is important to note that Mr. Fonda plays a very minor role in the film. To pull or alter this film at this point would unfairly penalize the filmmaker Shana Feste's accomplishment, the many actors, crew members and other creative talent that worked hard on the project. We plan to open the film as scheduled this weekend, in a limited release of five theaters."

One more thing about soccer that appeals to leftists. In pro soccer around the world, teams have found that winning is easier if you make the other team fail than if you practice and improve your own level of play. So that means that if your fans mob the opposing team and put a few of their stars in the hospital (or morgue), it helps the home team immensely.

Let me get this straight: they don't like kids in the temporary digs (the "cages") but they won't fly them to the nice, well-maintained, permanent homes with education, medical, and recreation facilities.

480 I'm conflicted on the sales tax issue - I can't deny that I do most of my shopping online these days. And yet, if I get everything tax free, thus cutting sales tax results, it's going to push States into funding their operations by relying ever more heavily on property taxes and use fees. I live in Texas so thankfully we don't have any State income tax, but that means we lean heavily on Sales Taxes. No Sales Tax, the state has a problem.

And, doing away with the local stores by giving Amazon a tax advantage is much the same thing as killing US employment by giving low cost Chinese factories free access with no tarrifs. It may benefit us in one way, by slightly cheaper prices, but does it really help us if it gets rid of so much of the local employment base?

I've looked at sales free internet purchases as a fun party that was going to have to come to an end, for the good of all of us.

Posted by: Tami


I doubt Melania has any kind of authority on this. Not to be dismissive, but this is SOP for the Secret Service.

Real or imagined threats against the First Family, etc.

Fonda is a terrorist and should be treated accordingly. He made that quite clear yesterday with repeated comments on Twitter.

Oh, and now his "agent" is apologizing, because Sony came down hard on him.

A little too little, a little too late.
Posted by: Bozo Conservative....outlaw in America at June 21, 2018 10:54 AM (vcOmj)

I'm guessing Melania had a meeting with one of the SS superiors regarding any additional precautions she should take with Barron. She's doing a fantastic job, along with the SS, with keeping Barron out of the spotlight, while I'm sure he is getting to participate in either summer school events, or other events we don't know about.
These things get translated incorrectly as they go down the phone line, like the phone game we played as kids.

I would like to know if Fonda actually did receive a visit from SS. Personally, I would have like to have seen charges brought. He was publicly inciting violence against a child and there should be more of a penalty than a crabby statement from his movie producers.

A movie from which he will still receive residuals.

Well, it would probably only work for big-ticket items, where the foregone sales tax would leave enough margin for my profit and the re-shipping to the real customer (plus enough of a savings to him to make it worthwhile for him to use my services).

556 But now, they are domestic traitors, not just appeasing hostile foreign powers, but importing hostile races (and training those races to BE hostile) and destroying us from within."

It may not be much comfort, but realize that they've always been here, and they've always been this bad, and they have always been working towards these ends. It's just that before now they were very good at keeping themselves hidden.

Now they've grown confident enough to come out in public and put themselves on full display - just as in the current brouhaha, all of the Dems are now out admitting that they really want completely open borders with no enforcement at all. They used to lie about that, now they are proud of it. It hurts to see, but the fact that we can all now see who they are is what we needed.

And if you doubt that this has been going on for a long time - have no doubt that the Barack Obama Presidency was the result of a 40 year long operation to place some of their top operatives at the pinnacle of American power, with the goal of completely destroying this country as an international power. Don't fear the worst - the worst thing that has ever happened to this country already happened, 10 years ago, and somehow we lived through it.

Never think of the Obama presidency as being anything other than a treasonous plot intentionally meant to destroy this country. They think they won, that's why they think they can let their masks slip now. But they haven't won, and now we're fighting back.

Fighting back is hard. It's always hard. It tears you down and wears you out. It wouldn't be a fight if it didn't - but it's worth it.

588 480 I'm conflicted on the sales tax issue - I can't deny that I do most of my shopping online these days. And yet, if I get everything tax free, thus cutting sales tax results, it's going to push States into funding their operations by relying ever more heavily on property taxes and use fees. I live in Texas so thankfully we don't have any State income tax, but that means we lean heavily on Sales Taxes. No Sales Tax, the state has a problem.

And, doing away with the local stores by giving Amazon a tax advantage is much the same thing as killing US employment by giving low cost Chinese factories free access with no tarrifs. It may benefit us in one way, by slightly cheaper prices, but does it really help us if it gets rid of so much of the local employment base?

I've looked at sales free internet purchases as a fun party that was going to have to come to an end, for the good of all of us.

596 What was the basis for the SC ruling on sales taxes? There used to be a federal law that prevented this - did Court declare this law unconsitutitonal?
Posted by: SH at June 21, 2018 11:28 AM (VkOIy)

Legal Insurrection has a quick take on it. The federal law required that a retailer had to have a presence in the state for the state to enforce it's sales tax requirement by requiring the retailer to collect tax and send it to the state. This ruling eliminates that presence requirement.

States have always had the power to collect a sales tax on out of state sales,( Michigan asks you to declare on your Income Tax form if you have bought anything out of state that would ordinarily be subject to the states sales tax if it was bought in state). Now they can legally compel an internet company to charge the tax, collect it, and send the tax to the state treasurer.

fascinating...Ginsberg did not join 'liberal' minority for the win.

You would have figured conservatives would be AGAINST such taxes and liberals FOR such taxes, instead we got a flip, with each side getting a defector.

I'm really sad about Thomas. HE KNOWS such decsicions chip away against liberty. The power to tax is the power to destroy and WE HAD a tax free zone to operate in. This is a very BIG FUCKING DEAL. I wish I could have argued this case. Maybe some day.



They overturned their own precedent....which means they were wrong for the last 50 years. Nothing new about USSC being wrong...see Plessy v Ferguson or Dred Scott.

Buy anywho, this is a YUGE tax grab by the cash strapped states and it's the sheeple getting fleeced. So now the sheeple have LESS money in their pockets to buy stuff and stimulate more economic activity. Government has MORE cash to waste on useless economically draining activities like spending millions on needles for drug addicts, or enforceing a new boating operators license "tax" in Commiefornia.

The USSC does NOT actually believe in Liberty. They believe in Big Government with a boot on your neck forever.

Heidi and i attempted to start a remodeling biz part time first while working, and then as we got started the we had to each month send a tax report form to every city around the phoenix area even if we didn't do business there. They would call us and say "just put zeros on it". Yeah, every fuckng month. You are right. Much of this is pushed by those already established to suppress completion. Just like 'certification's for every little thing you do to make a few bucks.

Although Proposition Thirteen of 1978, which limited skyrocketing property taxes, WAS a wonderful thing, it also led to Demunist innovations, like adjusting county and municipal sales taxes, to get around it.

See also "Mello-Roos", named after the two Demunist legislators who dreamed it up, allowing new revenue assessment districts and property taxes on new construction after 1978.

The rule on local taxes is "where did the consumer take delivery of the merchandise".

I used to run lumberyards for a living and made deliveries in a two state city with multiple municipal tax jurisdictions.

No easy feat to be in compliance and make all the correct filings. If memory serves I had at least one full time person to just work on jurisdiction tax compliance.

690 Government has MORE cash to waste on useless economically draining activities like spending millions on needles for drug addicts, or enforceing a new boating operators license "tax" in Commiefornia. "

The answer to that is electing local governments that don't do shit like that. I'm actually pretty satisfied with the way my city, county, and state spend the money they raise, but then again I live in Texas, and it's a well run place. If you don't live in a well run place, consider leaving.

and whatever any state does not raise through sales taxes, they will raise through either property, income, or use taxes. I rather prefer sales tax to be at least a part of the mix. I have sympathy for small business owners, something will have to evolve to make the situation less onerous on them.

I started off in favor of the Patriot act, but I've come around to thinking it is the greatest source of corruption and the greatest threat to our civil liberties that Congress has ever enacted.

Those who said that from the start were right.



I'm the same way. Secret courts? Not finding anything in the Constitution that says that's OK.

That was an unnecessary move IMO. There are better ways to prevent terrorism, one of them should be to ban CAIR and any other radical muslim-supremacist groups from operating here. Another would be banning the construction of mosques.

If W had been genuinely interested in stopping terrorism, he would've nuked Medina the day after 9/11 and announced that another terrorist attack on American soil would result in the nuking of Mecca next time.

The ruling doesn't force businesses to collect sales tax. It removes the physical presence requirement in order for a state to require the online retailer to collect the tax.

Which also removes the disincentive to open a retail location in a different state.


Every online seller already has to collect state sales tax in the state they are organized in if they are selling in state. It's not like there is some huge new burden coming, there will be software available immediately for a business to plug into that will provide accounting for individual sales tax.

The Morning Report 6/21/18

ibeseech.jpg

Good morning kids. The first day of summer has arrived, and so I guess it's fitting that the longest day of the year brings with it the longest Morning Report ever! 61, count 'em, 61 glorious links guaranteed to depress, enrage, or even give you a boost. Remember, we're not happy til you're not happy, so let's get on with it, shall we?

The big story continues to be the completely manufactured border crisis, the intention of which is to attempt to cleave the President from his supporters by forcing him to concede on the key policy issue that got him elected, with the secondary aim of deflecting attention away from the biggest political scandal in US history that strikes at the very heart of the rule of law and that essentially implicates the Democrat-Left's two biggest personalities - the ex-president and his presumptive successor.

Because this section alone contains fully a third of today's links, let me unpack it as succinctly as I can in order that I can get to an overarching theme that is coming into sharp focus and that is scaring the hell out of me (I'm sure you can all guess what that is, but hang on for a tic). On the tactical/granular level, PDT signed an executive order that overrides the existing law calling for the separation of border-jumping adults and children while still keeping them all detained and not letting them loose on our soil. The Democrat-Left Media complex went ape, since they were expecting the President to cave and just let them into the country free as a bird, thereby enraging the conservative base with an eye towards the Midterms. Meanwhile, the Amnesty bills, both the shit sammich Ryno variety and the marginally more palatable "moderate" one are likely to be torpedoed in the House by the conservative members (here's hoping). And with every effort to try and solve this issue, which as sane, rational people like the ICE director have pointed out IS THE FAULT OF THE ILLEGAL ALIEN PARENTS THEMSELVES, the Dems have exposed themselves as the liars we have aways known them to be. Cuck Schemer yesterday said any legislative fix was dead on arrival and now Nancy Palsi is calling for a complete halt on all border enforcement. When you put that all in context, I can't see how this President can even begin to even consider these people as ones that can be dealt with in good faith on any level. And that is a win.

Now, pulling back, we have the abuse of DHS Secretary Nielsen by thugs led by a current DoJ employee (someone wake up Sooper Secret Sleeper AG Lemmon 714) and welcomed by the restaurant's manager, the violent rhetoric aimed at the President's son by Petered-Out Fonda, as well as the death threat aimed at Brian Mast's son. Then, there's the foul, classless ravings of Kathy Griffin, Samantha Bee, Robert DeNiro hurled at the President and his family coupled with someone you'd think a bit more intelligent and informed like a former Air Force general equating the President's following of our immigration laws to the letter to that of the ramp at Birkenau. Now, we have Antifa goons doxing ICE agents' personal info culled from LinkedIn, the doxing of Stephen Miller by a website owned by a so-called legitimate TV network (Univision). All of this has been fueled by a Media that are nothing more than propaganda organs for the anti-American socialist enterprise, shameless, brazen and totally open without even the fig leaf of a pretext of a sham of a pretense of being impartial now that their monopoly to control what you see and hear has been shattered and worse, that you rejected their attempt to control you in November of 2016. That sin is unforgivable in their eyes.

And with the complete disregard for the oath they swore to uphold the law and protect our nation, our national law enforcement and intelligence officials have actively sought to sabotage a political campaign of an opponent who they also saw as a mortal nemesis, and when that failed to overthrow his Presidency by using their offices to engineer a coup with the approval and direction of the previous president and his ordained successor. Remember, it was he who publicly told his supporters and voters to "get in our faces." And that leads to the big fat cherry on top - the Dick Durbin-linked thwarted mass assassin James Hodgkinson.

All of this is connected and it's aimed right at President Trump, which means it's aimed right at We the People. These people are playing with fire. They want to don their little Guy Fawkes maskies and smash some windows and maybe the occasional head or two. And then there's Hodgkinson. And in a sense worse than him - Strzok, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper et al. I cannot predict the future. I can only look at history and day by day we are being forced to imagine the unimaginable. They invoke Fawkes and now I will invoke Oliver Cromwell:

"I Beseech You, in the Bowels of Christ, Think it Possible You May Be Mistaken"

Let's move on to the aforementioned Deep State coup attempt against President Trump. The big news here is that Obama's own cyber security czar has revealed Susan Rice gave a "stand down" order when it came to investigating Russian election meddling, not a smidgen of bias as 3 out of 5 FBI officials dinged for anti-Trump animus went from the Clinton investigation to the Mueller probe, PDT totally destroyed Strzok and Page and Michael Cohen has quit his job at the RNC and is now on the anti-zero tolerance bandwagon. I guess Mueller used the rubber truncheon on his where it doesn't show, eh?

On to politics where PDT was in his element up at a rally in Minnesota's iron range region. He stood firm on immigration as well as dealt with a heckler to the delight of the enthusiastic crowd. Meanwhile, as the RNC is setting new fundraising records, the Dems are getting big money but from singular sources such as Planned Mengelehood and Doomberg, both boosting gubernatorial candidates in CO and PA respectively.

1A news saw a giant abortion mill was defeated in their lawsuit to get church e-mails and in 2A news, American citizens reportedly now own close to 400 million weapons. Something the Left needs to think long and hard about considering my opening commentary. At the foreign desk, while Colombia has rejected the "shining path" to socialism, Mexico's upcoming elections do not bode well in that regard and that is sure to have implications both in terms of trade and especially immigration and border policy.

Domestically, prepare for our BP to spike: Fake Flake is sabotaging PDT's appeals court nominees in a really hideous way, Susan "Tom" Collins and Richard "Butt" Burr gave the Dems a win in defeating a PDT's spending cuts in the Senate. And Claire McAssKill isn't a hypocrite at all, no-sirree.

From hither and yon, Ted Cruz is wants to bring some heat on the global warming advocacy swindle, the bromide that blacks are disproportionately more the victims of police shootings than whites is shown to be a myth while lastly, the SPLC keeps lying about the overwhelming numbers of black-on-white violence as opposed to vice versa.

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

Scorecard?

13 Domestically, prepare for our BP to spike: Fake Flake is sabotaging
PDT's appeals court nominees in a really hideous way, Susan "Tom"
Collins and Richard "Butt" Burr gave the Dems a win in defeating a PDT's
spending cuts in the Senate. And Claire McAssKill isn't a hypocrite at
all, no-sirree.





Chucky shithead shows the real Democrat intent on illegals. They don't give a shit about them, only fighting everything Trump does is their intent. And DIABLO Flake is helping them. If we had an opposition Party they would take him out of all committees.

14 Good morning.
Well, maybe not so good. Excellent opening essay JJ --- I may not get to much of your links as this Lefty mass hysteria/transition to hot war is too upsetting.

If you saw the tweets yesterday, then you know that with each victory - airlines dumping DHS, Nielson harassed, Trump's EO -- led to excitement and inspiration to keep pushing harder. Leads me to the uncomfortable suspicion that should they get the violence they thirst for (such as ICE agents killed), it will only incite more, not a halt an reassessment of their methods, their madness.

Argh.

16 Dems not appeased..............

And they NEVER will be, on anything, as long as Trump is President. That's why it's O.K. to call them every name in the book. And I do. (not here, with the banning and all)

18 Some Maths
100 detained illegals claiming asylum
60 percent show up for hearing
80 percent have no asylum claim or status
So
Out of 100 maybe 12 have a true asylum claim.

21 Linking articles on the iPad is a pita. Everyone needs to read the post on Conservative Treehouse about tariffs and Germany that IanDeal referenced. Germany capitulating is great but China is the big nut to crack.
God forbid we would ever have another world war with China the aggressor and the Chinese controlling so much steel production. Could the US ramp up production, I'm not sure. Don't know if
