Shocker: Guy Who Shouted "Heil Hitler, Heil Trump" At a Fiddler on the Roof Performance Is Actually... An Anti-Trump Progressive Activist

Yes, everyone pretty much thought this, though many of us did not say so because we'd be yelled at by the Very Smart People Who Are Wrong About Almost Everything.

I mean, this seemed like a FALSE FLAG from the get-go, but the Very Smart People Who Are Wrong About Almost Everything yell when people say almost-certainly correct things like "This sounds much more like a MAGA parody as imagined by a febrile progressive than an actual MAGA supporter," and want Republicans to assume that they are Garbage People like their progressive Twitter Palz say and pre-emptively denounce themselves.

Even though this was all pretty obvious.

But we couldn't say so. Because, all of the yelling.

The "conservatives" who are Very Smart People Who Are Wrong About Almost Everything would call you "conspiracy theorists."

And they sure do reject conspiracy theories, except for the Michael Avenatti Got Set Up by a Rightwing Subversive Conspiracy Theory, and of course the Trump's Server Secretly Plotted Foreign Collusion With the Alfa Bank Server Conspiracy Theory.

But other than those and five to twelve other anti-Republican/anti-Trump conspiracy theories they passionately believe in, with no evidence whatsoever -- they're totes against conspiracy theories.

Or let's put it the right way: They're against all the conspiracy theories that conflict with their fervently-believed partisan dogmas, and they're passionately in favor of all the conspiracy theories that support their fervently-believed partisan dogmas.

Like I said, they're Very Smart People.

Who Are Wrong About Almost Everything.

What would Jack Dorsey do?

Since this guy was a poser, and actually Anti-Trump, I think Twitter should ban anyone who mocks this heckler. Because he was heckling for the right reason. Cultural sarcasm that was actually supposed to be critical of Trump.

Yeah, that's what Jack Dorsey would do.

And if you criticize him too much on Twitter, Jack Dorsey or Anita Saarkesian or whoever wields the BIG RED BUTTON over in that hellhole will ban you.

Because they are all about the trooth and feelz. And about tyrannical control.

60 I was thinking some more about the Acosta TRO.

Trump should troll the press with this moment. Let Acosta back in, let Acosta ask questions.... but only Acosta.

Trump should take no questions from other reporters. In fact when other reporters or Acosta complain he should say "Well I dont want a FEDERAL judge to think I wasnt giving enough time to CNN."

Let that pattern continue for a week or two. Only Acosta having the spotlight and ignoring all the other members of the press. Give them what they want and watch them devour each other with jealousy.

In all seriousness, in the 1920's the Progressives were all very curious about Mussolini and Stalin and Lenin (before he croaked off).

Posted by: Bozo Conservative....living on the prison planet at November 16, 2018 02:51 PM (vcOmj)

It is sad. I guess it's a complex 'happy' feeling.

I'm seeing a functioning society, a family that has trouble but is a family. Yes, it gets torn down and apart, gets kicked around and run out of town. But...I don't know if I can explain it. When I hear Topol talking, I'm happy. When I hear Golda finally say 'if that's not love, what is', I'm happy. Listening to the daughters sing, I'm happy.

I don't like the pogrom. And I don't like the commie bastard who shows up. And I really don't like to pogrom.

But somehow that does affect my enjoyment of the movie or my experience watching it. Maybe I'm weird.

114 Previous Patriot Prayer rallies in Portland have also been criticized for attracting members of the far-right fringe. They've included outspoken anti-Semites and Islamophobes, white nationalists and neo-Nazis.

Meanwhile, Rose City Antifa, a prominent antifascist group in Portland, has asked supporters to show up at Schrunk Plaza before the #HimToo rally begins.


Note the difference in characterizing the two groups?

We really need to start publicizing the term "Neo-Communists" - a lot of people in Antifa and the Left generally are, in fact, Communists. We need to start calling them out on this.

142 I always look at Fiddler as a complex story. Tevye disowns his daughter over tradition, and the story makes it pretty clear why a Russian Jew must have a strong and insular culture. The alternative is death.

On the whole, though, the sheer terror of Naziism makes the "mere" expulsion look almost quaint. Which is perhaps why people focus on the more pleasant and romantic aspects of the story. Being a non-Jew, I suppose it has less significance to me even when I can enjoy the story. Or is that "but we sing in a minor key to remember that we suffered?"

Embrace the ancient custom of banishment. If they want to overturn the Constitution they lose their America privileges.

And then there was a twist at the end: they claimed to have been a black trans woman who just wanted to make fan art, and the same people who melted down suddenly said "oh, okay, it's all right then, you go girl"

I always thought the Metric System was overhyped. As if the base units of measurement are not just as arbitrary and capricious as anything Imperial or US.

A system based upon tens and hundreds is obviously better (anyone ever deal with the UK pound pre 1971?) but it is telling that in business, the main units for commodities are still troy ounces of precious metals, barrels of oil, or bushels of wheat and corn and other staples.

I think now that it was based on the ORIGINAL Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, forget what that was called, with David Niven and (seriously) Marlon Brando in the Steve Martin role, because the plot was different, the characters were different, and the character names were different.

Also I usually don't love musicals anyway so the singing combined with not seeing the characters I expected was just a deal-breaker.

Also the tickets were just like $30 so fuck it, easy to walk away from.

277 198 The Metric system was invented so that France could act all important and stuff.

Only the French could create a new measurement system based on powers of 10 while at the same time having having those units define the acceleration of gravity at the surface of the earth to be 9.8 m/sec^2. I mean really? Everything is based on powers of 10 and they could not jiggle the length of a meter to make the gravitational constant 10 instead of 9.8! It is a system that is useless at everything it tries to be.

Oh, and before somebody jumps down my throat first convert meters per second to kilometers per hour by multiplying or dividing only by 10. Then get back to me.

325 They're redefining the kilogram. Apparently it will no longer be determined by a lump of metal in France as a kind of reference mass. They've found a way to figure out masses that will be independent of that. It won't really affect your scales at all, so don't worry.

339 One crank yelling in a theater simewhere doesn't matter. For that reason, it would have been for all practical purposes a fabrication even if they link this duckhesd to Trump, which they can't. It's also why they'll never run out of material to misrepresent. It's a tiny dust particle that forms the nucleus for a rainstorm. The point isn't the dust, it's the water.

What does matter is a coordinated campaign by news outlets and 'opinion makers' claiming something like this matters deeply and is a reason to take away more freedom and safety from the public. It shows instiutitional corruption when they do that. Like when the police stand by and let activists block streets and attack individuals - institutional.

I'm a huge Les Miserables fan.

One of my theater acquaintances, after listening to me sing (probably rather passionately) some of the songs during our wrap party wondered aloud about why Americans, and right wing Americans like me, react so powerfully to a story about a bunch of commie French students. (I'm paraphrasing a bit, but that's what it boiled down to)

We saw the next big sure thing hit that'd just opened instead - Wonderland - which wound up closing within weeks I guess. The songs were great but the story was pretty awful. And yeah years later now we've been to Book of Mormon a couple times.

426 Back then there wasn't exactly a cure for blindness.


It was psychosomatic blindness. He caught Mom and StepDad murdering RealDad and they yelled at him, "you didn't see it, you didn't hear it, you won't say nothing to no one what you know is the truth.

You never heard it, not a word of it..." etc.

That forces him into a state of deaf dumb and blindness, but there's nothing physically wrong with him.

The doctor says the dials and needles all move, there's no reason that he can't see.

When he goes through the mirror he's freed.

I can prove you have 11 fingers.

-----------------------------
Meredith Wilson, who himself was from Iowa and never tired of defending flyover folks, considered it a tribute.

Today we might consider it a slam because the people are depicted as being naive. The city-slicker, being a crook, is more to our taste.

But note that the conman converts at the end, giving up his "sophistication" and throwing his lot in with the rubes.

So it's not a slam at all. If anything, it romanticizes the heartland.

That's my take anyway.

486 she looked really good in a minor thriller, Murder at 1600.

Twitter Suspends Feminist For Saying "Men Aren't Women Tho"

The hate speech!

Or should I say -- the heresy!

As I've said before: If Jack Dorsey and the other progressive men are telling me that transwomen are really women, and there's no difference between a trans and a woman -- then I would expect progressive men to have a policy of dating trans women.

Do they? Funny, they don't say so. Seems as though in their personal lives they do see a difference between a trans woman and a, you know, actual woman.

But in public speech? They lie, and the require others to lie, and they punish them if they do not lie.

This is very, very healthy. I can't think of any political systems built upon personal truths suppressed under public lies that turned into paranoid murder-states.

73 Willowed on last thread. I thought it worth repeating about Acosta:

439 There's a story at Legal Insurrection.

- It's NOT on essentially based 1st Amendment grounds, but on 5th.

- But by failing to use "due process" the First somehow becomes relevant. (I don't get that.)

- It's apparently based on a precedent that there needs to be a process for cutting them off, involving notification and shit.

- But then it does say "BIG: Judge Kelly rules Jim Acosta's first amendment rights overrules the White House's right to have orderly press conferences." and "And here it is! Kelly says plaintiffs have shown likelihood fifth amendment rights were violated, and there is irreparable harm."

None of which makes sense to me.

On the positive side: "I want to emphasize the very limited nature of this ruling," Judge Timothy J. Kelly said. "I have not determined that the First Amendment was violated here."

Question: Does our right to symbolic free speech, protected by the Constitution, cover kicking that smug POS in the balls? Just asking.

101 Any man who doesn't date trans women has already been declared a h8r. But when are they going to go after the next defense "she's not my type." There have been many wimmen in my single days I wasn't interested in, and I don't just mean trolls. Sometimes it just wasn't there. Just as there were a few I rated higher than my friends did (and vice-versa).

Then the final move: they can say they identify as the particular woman I desire, no matter what I say. I think Lena Dunham has already tried something like this*. This would even override such antiquated things as my wedding vows.

Outlandish? Are you sure?

*OK, Lena is not technically trans. But she might as well be.

But not everyone is onboard. Joe is not alone in his antipathy to the cosmological boom; straight men seem to be frequently apathetic or adverse to astrology. In a 2005 Gallup UK poll, just over twice as many women in the UK believed in astrology compared to men (30 percent to 14 percent of a data pool of 1,010 people).

And yet more patriarchal oppression:

130 When this "trans" crap started to break, I mentioned to my brother that I would be very interested to see what happens regarding the feminists. "Trans" stuff is inherently anti-feminist. The feminists, depending on what you believe, look out for women's interests or seek female supremacy or seek sexual equality. No matter what brand of feminism is in play, it is existentially threatened by the trans movement. The feminist cornerstone is that women exist. If women cease to exist (which, under trans ideology, they do) then so does feminism.

The death struggle is now underway. I don't know who wins, but I sort of hope it is the trans movement. I don't know whether modern feminism or the trans stuff is worse, but I suspect the trans stuff has less staying power once the trend breaks. I don't know. Neither option is good.

140 Not to be a stickler here, but I'm honestly curious how the new rules work:

The terms boy, girl, men and women always referred to biological sex/gender, which were the same (in terms of M/F differentiation).

The new rules say biological sex and gender identity are two separate things. What's in your pants doesn't necessarily match what you are in your mind re: M/F/[fancy third options].


OK, so now when someone say "man" "woman" "boy" or "girl" is that referring to biological sex or gender identity?
Seems to me the Left is (once again!) muddying the water by continuing to use sex/gender interchangeably while insisting they are completely different things. If they wanted to be clear there would be new terms (none of that "cis" crap).

OK, I've already put too much thought into this BS...

==========

At least feminism is sometimes grounded in the reality that men and women are different (other times, it's grounded in the idea that men and women are the same, depending on the argument being had at that particular moment).

Of course, that second state is really what laid the groundwork for the trans arguments to take off on the left. Feminists had fallen into often saying that men and women are no different, so the next natural step from that unnatural assumption is that men and women are interchangeable in every way.

Really, the only way to approach this is to root for injuries.

No. The Left intentionally put it backwards and people have just followed along.

A trans man is a guy who likes to dress up as his mom, or Ethel Merman, OR has operations to make him look like Cher.

A trans woman is a gal who wears flannel and likes to spit and fart because she thinks those are foundational male actions and probably plays a lot of softball. A few trans women have operations to have dicks glued onto them, but very few.

Those who dress up as the opposite sex are transvestites. Those who get themselves hacked up with a knife to look like the opposite sex are transsexuals.

170 The guidelines of post-modern identity intersectional critical theory social justicing are rigidly flexible. Everyone has an absolute position in the victim-power pecking order. But as the rules are situational, open to interpretation and set in stone, no one can know, at any one time, and in any one place, just where they rank. There is an uncertainty principle much like in particle physics.

Ordinarily, a feminist would be pretty far up the list but in this case, this feminist holds an opinion that loses all or most of her Maddows (Unit of Measure of Wokeness).

179 When this "trans" crap started to break, I mentioned to my brother that I would be very interested to see what happens regarding the feminists.

Portland, one of the most gay-friendly cities on the planet, doesn't have a lesbian bar, because a lesbian bar would immediately be invaded by men wearing dresses, and lesbians don't want to hang out in a bar with men wearing dresses.

And woe betide you if you try to do something about it - a bar owner asked a group of men wearing dresses to hang out somewhere else, and was hit with a six-figure fine by the State for "discrimination". The bar ended up closing as a result.

181 The guidelines of post-modern identity intersectional critical theory social justicing are rigidly flexible. Everyone has an absolute position in the victim-power pecking order. But as the rules are situational, open to interpretation and set in stone, no one can know, at any one time, and in any one place, just where they rank. There is an uncertainty principle much like in particle physics.

Ordinarily, a feminist would be pretty far up the list but in this case, this feminist holds an opinion that loses all or most of her Maddows (Unit of Measure of Wokeness). She should thank Gaia that she is not conservative or her Maddow's would go negative and she would no longer be an official woman.

But when Milo said it, he got completely disappeareded by the professional right -- namely by the people we now call "Never Trumpers."

This was before the battle lines of vast majority of R voters vs. Never Trumpers were drawn though, so for some reason everyone went along with it.

I think you're confusing the issue. "Trans-" as a prefix has a more or less universally accepted meaning in this context. A Trans-man is transitioning into being a man, a trans-woman is transitioning into being a woman.

Now, if you claim that there is no such thing as "transitioning", then rather than reversing the meaning of that prefix, you simply deny it has any meaning at all. A man "transitioning into a woman" is a man. A woman "transitioning into a man" is then a man. Any other adjectives, pejorative or otherwise, are incidental.

194 A trans man is a guy who likes to dress up as his mom, or Ethel Merman, OR has operations to make him look like Cher.

A trans woman is a gal who wears flannel and likes to spit and fart because she thinks those are foundational male actions and probably plays a lot of softball. A few trans women have operations to have dicks glued onto them, but very few.

Those who dress up as the opposite sex are transvestites. Those who get themselves hacked up with a knife to look like the opposite sex are transsexuals.

I think you have it backwards. And it pains me that I know enough about this to think that.

I believe that the "whatever" in trans-whatever means the new thing you think you are. So, a transman is a woman who now thinks she is a man, and a transwoman is a man who know thinks he is a woman.

I think.

SCOTUS likes to take cases with circuit splits over federal law.

Taking cases that are about specific state laws and how they violate the federal constitution don't seem to be as sexy to them. IDK.

But I agree -- I think both MA and NY (not to mention CA) have laws that are just begging to be struck down.

Portland lesbians frequently have "pop-up" dance parties, which are only advertised on closed, invitation-only Facebook groups, to keep the men wearing dresses from showing up.

I'm amazed that the trannies haven't sued to demand that they be included in the Facebook groups.

251 So, how has Florida, and Broward County specifically, demonstrated they can't do something that high school students electing a class president seem to be able to manage without controversy on a regular basis?

Scott's up by a little over 12K votes. That means, the deep blue counties (which go 70/30 to Nelson) would need to find over 30K votes, or roughly 1% of all the votes cast in those counties, just to get Nowhere Man to par with Scott.

I know: Broward County says "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!"

302 I'm getting old now. Pushing 28. James, ace Here is the story of the abused spouse:

When it came to pass that the two finally saw truth.
In their eyes it was clear that one needed the other much more.
The situation wasn't working but with this fact laid evident, or at least believable, the impending argument and outcome was somewhat predictable.

For as she towered over him looking in his eyes he would dare not ask for more from her while she was packing her bags. She was in total power control; mostly (assuming he was sane and didn't want her whatever-CC to be unholsterez).

Before that she had nicely explained how they had both paid into the down payment for the house, and she would be happy to take half the sale or give half and rent the home herself. Either way really she did not care, for she had made up her mind, or so it seemed.

He became oddly pliable that day; eerily so and like a child. She was only reassured of her conviction. But it would never have happened if he did not believe he would lose her.

Gl / it's a good bargaining chip and it might even be true.

320 But if a lefty gay guy made the same observation, no one would have cared.

But when Milo said it, he got completely disappeareded by the professional right -- namely by the people we now call "Never Trumpers."

This was before the battle lines of vast majority of R voters vs. Never Trumpers were drawn though, so for some reason everyone went along with it.

If a Democrat makes a socialist or open borders observation, nobody cares. But that's par for the course. It's when people who are supposedly conservative make such observations that alarm bells are raised and like Jeb or Romney they are rejected. That's not inconsistent or hypocritical.

As for "it's common the gay community for younger men to seek out older men for experience (gross, but a true statement.)", it's more than just gross. There are ethical issues involved as well. Teen boys are too immature to think properly about these decisions and older men use this as opportunities for "grooming".

322 DM reports that Stacey Abrams is now planning a lawsuit to challenge election results in Georgia on the grounds that there was raaaaaaacist voter suppression.

Among her evidence will be testimony from poll workers that long lines at polling places discouraged some minorities from voting, that voters who showed up at the wrong polling places or whose names were not on the voting lists were not given provisional ballots, and that sometimes election equipment froze and had to be rebooted.

See, even the computers in Georgia are raaaaacist! They only freeze up when they see black voters approaching.

And it's funny how long lines only discourage minority Dims from voting, but apparently Republican voters will stand in the long lines. Must be all that rigorous Nazi training they get, right Stacey?

It's Official: Federal Judges Have Decided That There Are Special Rules In the Constitution That Say Trump Doesn't Have the Basic Powers All Other Presidents Have

A judge -- appointed by Trump, actually -- decides the president can not deny a press pass to a non-reporter who physically pushes away an intern and declares that Jim Acosta now has his press pass back.

The judge said the government could not say who initially decided to revoke Acosta’s hard pass. The White House had spelled out its reasons for revoking his credentials in a tweet from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and in a statement after CNN filed its lawsuit. But the judge said those "belated efforts were hardly sufficient to satisfy due process."

The judge also found that Acosta suffered "irreparable harm," dismissing the government's argument that CNN could simply send other reporters to cover the White House in Acosta’s place.

The suit by CNN alleges that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were violated by suspending his hard pass. While the judge didn't rule on the underlying case, he signaled they were likely to prevail in their claims.

This is an emergency injunction, not a decision following a full trial, but the judge found a substantial likelihood that CNN would prevail on the merits (which is necessary finding for granting an injunction).

It isn't news any more; it is just gossip from highly placed insiders who have to remain anonymous because their speaking to the press is outside of their official job description.

It was based on the 5A, in which if the gov't gives you something - they can't arbitrarily take it away without due process. Again, have Trump let Jim ask the first question, answer it. Say: Thanks Jim and move onto the next person. If he balks in giving back the mic, Trump should say: By a show of hands, who says Jim should ask another question? When he asks another and continues on: Trump says: 2 questions down, 8 more to go. By a show of hands. . . .. Rinse. Repeat. At the next presser you'll have all hands up the very first time.

If Acosta has a "right" to WH access, then so does EVERYONE because EVERYONE has a right to freedom of the written/broadcast word.

175 From Wikipedia (I know it from OBLIVION)

Horatius

The first poem, Horatius, describes how Publius Horatius and two companions, Spurius Lartius and Titus Herminius, held the Sublician bridge against the Etruscan army of Lars Porsena, King of Clusium. The three heroes are willing to die in order to prevent the enemy from crossing the bridge, and sacking an otherwise ill-defended Rome. While the trio close with the front ranks of the Etruscans, the Romans hurriedly work to demolish the bridge, leaving their enemies on the wrong side of the swollen Tiber.[3]

This poem contains the often-quoted lines:

Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
"To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods."

This is a very good and accurate poem.
You should all commit it to memory if it is not already.

The problem is, in the history of the press corps (which includes Sam Donaldson and Helen Thomas, btw), no one has EVER been such a jackass to actually force the rules and procedures of the Press Corps to a "test case" like this.

Given all the false stories and retractions that the Communist News Network has published, I'm surprised they still have access to the WH.

Were I PDT, I would've revoked their access after about the fifth retraction and issued a statement that said, "Accurate reporting is essential to a nation where the people are in charge. CNN has failed in that regard and we would be remiss in our duties to the American people if we allowed an organization that repeatedly refuses to tell them the truth access to the White House."

237 The White House had spelled out its reasons for revoking his credentials in a tweet from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and in a statement after CNN filed its lawsuit. But the judge said those "belated efforts were hardly sufficient to satisfy due process."

Why does the WH even have to "spell out reasons" for what they do? IANAL, but if party A decides to treat party B in a way that party B doesn't like, B doesn't always have the right to "due process". It depends on the context. Isn't that correct?

If there is something like a contractual violation, then B is entitled to "due process". But if I tell B, "you are no longer welcome in my house", I have no need to justify my decision and if B doesn't like it, B is not entitled to "due process".

[Insert another Acosta rant.]

"Interesting perspective. I'll have to consider that."

I've found that this can be a good way of taking the wind out of the sails of someone who is hot.

273 Trump doesn't have to do press conferences at all. He should announce that since Acosta wastes everybody's time by behaving like a preening asshole and trying to debate Trump at press conferences, he's decided to stop holding them for the media.

But Trump understand that the public has questions about some of his policies, and he wants to answer those questions directly, so he will begin holding Q&A sessions in the White House for members of the public, who will be selected at random and cleared by SS.

This way the public gets its questions answered, and it doesn't have to get them filtered through the hostile, left-wing bias of the Dim-controlled media.

And Trump will have a list of rules drawn up in advance for how public questioners should behave in the conference room, and one of those rules will be that once the president has signalled that he has answered the question, the microphone must be relinquished and the questioner must take his/her seat and not attempt to debate the president, thereby wasting everybody's time.

275 The case should be simple - the White House just needs to bring in video examples of Acosta being rude, and thereby demonstrate that all the reporters, except Acosta, seem to have an unofficial standard they adhere to, which Acosta does not adhere to (as demonstrated).

So he's banned because he doesn't adhere to the commonly acceptable standards of behavior nearly all the other members of the press use and the White House expects.

As it is now, it's not a daily press briefing, it's the Jim Acosta show.

Although the thought of Jim Acosta's brains splattered across a wall is warming, think of the precedent.

Words are words.
Words are not violence.
Contrary to what the Progessive Left think,
Words by themselves are never justification for any violence, much less homicide.

-----------------------------------------------
As to the former, because it's all about class privilege. Fox is Big Corporate Media. They want the privileged clique to remain.
If the press room were open to more conservative voices, their status and power would be greatly reduced.

The WH Press Corps actually DID (sweetly and secretly) get Obama to squelch the idea of excluding Fox from the press room itself. There are many in the WHPC and elsewhere who realize the value of having the room only 98% pro-Obama, who know the optics of getting rid of the ONLY opposition is bad.

306 A press pass is like an invitation. If you're are invited to an event and you start misbehaving, you can be ejected. You are not being deprived of property. It's hard to see how it's justifiable to conflate the physical invitation or a press pass with the conditional extension of a courtesy.

Those ejected are being deprived of their liberty ... to be a nuisance. But to argue that this is unjust would be like saying that criminals have the right to commit crimes, because to stop them from doing so would be depriving them of "liberty" without "due process". This judge really sounds like a dimwit.

I hate how these cretins paper over their obviously immoral and nonsensical ideas with a veneer of legal jargon and don't get called out on it.

360 347 My two favorite ideas:

- ignore him, as the judge said they can do.
- change the format. Written questions only. That preserves their ability to ask questions and prevents them from grandstanding and acting belligerently.

I'm still not sure how it's a freedom of speech issue. No one is stopping these reporters from expressing themselves in writing or on the air. It doesn't mean having the right to bluster where ever, whenever you choose. If this is decided on a 1A basis, Alex Jones needs to be given back his accounts on all social media.

364 I had an epiphany late in my military career.. when I took a 'modern history' class.

And they talked about things I was involved in (and almost invariably had it wrong).

The epiphany was that History is what happens when we are just trying to muddle through our lives... its happening around us.

Pay attention folks. We are watching the blatant destruction of the very idea we are a Republic.

Between the Judges, and the Left... respect for the rule of law is eroding, and once gone, won't be restored without major societal upheaval...

We are living in historic times.

365 Prole Press Pass:

The White House randomly selects 20 proles to visit the White House and submit their questions about their nation to the White House Press Secretary. Televised. Give and take between the executive and the people who put him/them there.

These "democracy dies in darkness" babblers have outlived their usefulness. They've become a self-selected class of political/ideological gatekeepers. Americans have concerns that aren't reported because they aren't asked. By Americans.

Impractical? Of course. But in a better time, the President and the people would've tolerated far, far less of the posturing, filtering, faux-indignation, and thought-policing that passes as 'journalism' today.

questions as he likes. Focus exclusively on Acosta and when he has asked
25 questions, end the press conference. Let the other reporters deal
with Acosta

But any simple application of common sense would tell anyone with a shred of objectivity that Acosta was way out of bounds, and that it was not a one time thing. Oh, and by the way, as I recall, a reporter was excoriated by the media when he stood up to Obama after Obama rebuked him at a press conference for being too persistent.

The level of double standards, hypocrisy, and lack of fairness and balance have reached insane levels. No solutions from here - the party that theoretically represents most of us seems just fine with the ratcheting up of the insanity from the left.

An imperfect analogy to be sure, but I have to imagine most case law on this kind of thing is more related to agency actions then something like this.

I mean, I honestly don't know what the answer is here, and haven't read the pleadings, so I don't know exactly what they were arguing.

439 There's a story at Legal Insurrection.

- It's NOT on essentially based 1st Amendment grounds, but on 5th.

- But by failing to use "due process" the First somehow becomes relevant. (I don't get that.)

- It's apparently based on a precedent that there needs to be a process for cutting them off, involving notification and shit.

- But then it does say "BIG: Judge Kelly rules Jim Acosta's first amendment rights overrules the White House's right to have orderly press conferences." and "And here it is! Kelly says plaintiffs have shown likelihood fifth amendment rights were violated, and there is irreparable harm."

None of which makes sense to me.

On the positive side: "I want to emphasize the very limited nature of this ruling," Judge Timothy J. Kelly said. "I have not determined that the First Amendment was violated here."

Question: Does our right to symbolic free speech, protected by the Constitution, cover kicking that smug POS in the balls? Just asking.

445 268 Still another thought. How about going ahead, even calling on Acosta, but not getting into an argument with him: just placidly acknowledge having heard what he said, without taking a stand either way.

"It's not an invasion, it's a caravan!"

"Well, that's one way of looking at it, Jim."

[Insert another Acosta rant.]

"Interesting perspective. I'll have to consider that."

I've found that this can be a good way of taking the wind out of the sails of someone who is hot.

Eventually Acosta will run out of steam, then wind up the presser, and send everybody home without getting to ask a question. Rinse. Lather. Repeat. as necessary.

Why do you think Acosta has a liberty or property interest?

His liberty is being curtailed because he was unruly. But if a criminal trying to rob a government office were stopped, his liberty would also be curtailed.

You are being equivocal about your use of the word liberty.

And what sort of "property" interest does Acosta have? His pass is a physical expression of a courtesy extended to him, but to say that that is "property" is to conflate the physical expression with the courtesy itself. It's like saying a piece of writing *is* the thought expressed, which is nonsense. It's black marks on a page.

I mean, shit, your employer can fire you for any reason whatsoever. And the court will absolutely stand behind, say, CNN, if they decided to fire Acosta over something like this. But denying him a pass to teh White House ? Beyond the pale.

Now, Trump has to push this as far as he has to, and we truly are living in a lawless wasteland if this gets to SCOTUS and either they refuse to hear it, or worse yet, uphold this idiocy. If that happens, I say no holds barred. The gloves come off. If we cannot even live in a world where the CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF THE UNITED STATES cannot even decide if a reporter gets a pass to the White House, we're all fucked.

Be interesting to see the court enforce this. No pass given, nobody without a pass gets in. Come on down to the White House and enforce your dumbass judgement.

--
They didn't bother voting on it when Trump was in office.

---

And you know why or should. They voted on a clean repeal when they knew it was going nowhere. It was for show, nothing more.

There were enough Republicans who's states had taken advantage of things like Medicaid expansion under Obamacare that they were never going to vote for a straight repeal when it mattered.

---

Yep.

Not McCain's fault.

Every single (R) in office is responsible for us keeping Obamacare.

They never even bothered trying.

Jack is correct. One of the things Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan's new democrat governor beat her opponent, AG Bill Schuette with was his joining in the lawsuit of numerous states to roll back Medicaid expansion. I must have seen(despite trying to avoid local tv) 50 repeats of her commercial claiming Schuette "wanted to remove health care insurance for 450,000 working families in Michigan." Notice how the claim is always "working families", as if these are 100% made up of mom and dad and two adorable children.

Well, the idiot Democrat female ex mayor that was running against my House representative , and has spent the last two years in the Michigan House of Reps. apparently hadn't been beaten enough. Her platform? Straight out of Occasio. She advocated free college, universal health care via Medicare for all, minimum wage at $15, etc. She used to be , about six years ago, the mayor of a very small town, where her politics would have NEVER gotten her elected. So she kept them to herself until she decided to run six years ago against said House Rep. She was defeated, and then ran for Michigan House . Won that seat, then totally came out full force for socialism this year when she decided once again to run against said House Rep. She lost.

The weather forecasters are the ones to blame. They're so enamored of the global warming bullshit they can't tell the truth. That was supposed to be a short period of snow, followed by rising temperatures then all rain. A big nothing. Typical of early season snow.

No. We didn't lose. The Republican Party lost because it won't fight voter fraud and just rolls over when it happens.

When you're not in power you can fundraise like crazy by playing on people's frustrations and fears, but if you're in power, they expect you to deliver.

Hence, now they're out of power Republicans are suddenly all for funding the wall. When they were in power, they blocked funding every time.

He had his shot the last two years and is blowing any opportunity to do anything right now. They're getting away with it again, just like with Gregoire in 2004 and Franken in 2012 and on and on.

They learned their lesson in 2016: they didn't cheat enough. So now they're going to cheat harder, and since they aren't being in any way punished or stopped here, in 2020, it doesn't even make sense to vote. Trump could win by 20 million votes and they'd recount and invent their way to a win for whatever human detritus makes it through the clown car mob that the Dems throw up.

Now there's an idea. Give WH press credentials to Alex Jones, and seat him right behind shorty Acosta. And then make sure Sarah or PDT points to him every press conference, and when Acosta jumps up, hollers, "Sit down, Jimmy, I was gesturing to Alex Jones."

Someone upthread had a great idea: have every WH reporter submit their questions by e-mail in advance. Then the press conference would just be a video feed of Sarah sitting at a desk reading the e-mail. Occasionally flash on the email itself to show they're not making stuff up.

Yielding to the court on this is what Trump has done with flagrant abuses by Hawaiian judges ... so I assume that precedent will continue, since he is totally compromised by an invalid special counsel and a GOPe just itching to put the globalist cabal back in as POTUS (Pence would fulfill that itch, imo)


But maybe hand out new guidelines for all WH media ... any yelling of questions without being called on will mean immediate dismissal from the meeting, twice means permanent ban.

I wasn't suggesting you use it, just replying to someone who talked about a non-existent pic.

As far as I understand it, Sophia was an established sex bomb and Mansfield was a newbie trying to make a name for herself. She knew there were photographers everywhere so she went to spill out of her dress in front of Sophia to get a reaction and make a name for herself.

The problem with Mansfield was that she was dumber than the dirt turnips grow in. It just so takes away from sexiness, no matter what the rack looks like.

327 And in today's news from Planet Portland, the mayor was overheard muttering that he couldn't wait for his term to be over in two years. (Portland has had a succession of one-term mayors - having to deal with a bunch of insane professional "activists" on the local level takes its toll.)

This has created a political firestorm, of course - the insane Left is demanding that the mayor (who is left-wing, but not insane) resign, so one of the several available insane left-wing politicians be put in his place.

One insane former mayoral candidate posted the following thing on Twitter:

The job of Portland mayor doesn't suck. It's one of the most important IN THE WORLD.

Yep - you got it. One of the world's most important jobs on earth is being mayor of Portland, Oregon.

This is because the insane Left thinks that Portland is a beacon and example to the world, and is one of the world's most important cities. Really.

For example, we can't fix the worst highway bottleneck in Oregon by adding a freeway lane on each side for a couple of miles, because What Would The World Think If Portland Did That. That would affect Portland's Green Global Brand, which is obviously incredibly valuable to Portland's residents.

Same with actually enforcing the law in Portland's festering homeless camps.

One of the things that makes governance in Portland almost impossible is the belief that Portland needs to set a global example - that peasants in Bangladesh are looking to Portland as a beacon of light on how to behave.

Either they are paving the road to their own implosion and cultural irrelevance in 10-20 years, or they are paving the road to a flat out breakup of the Union.

If the breakup is peaceful, I consider that a victory condition. Go be crazypants over there and good luck to ya. I'm perfectly willing to up stakes and move if that 's the deal.

The election was not great, but taking the long view, it was better. It is already causing Pelosi to sputter even more. And to assume that there's not going to be blowback for either not voting for her or voting for her after stating you wouldn't and then following her agenda will prove to be a good thing for the Rs.


Trump's 2020 run will fuel turnout and in doing so, down vote balloting for Rs. We have seen the true colors of many a "conservative" the last two years and this is a good thing.

This is like the people who insist Joe Biden is an unstoppable political juggernaut. Nothing whatsoever points to her being smart. Zero. She's clever in an animal sort of way, like how a cat can figure out how to open a door, but that doesn't make your kitty smart.

Stupid is as stupid does. She got elected because the people in her district are even dumber than her, not because she's bright at all.

I try to make a distinction between wisdom and intelligence here, because I think it is key: someone can be very smart, but a fool, or very wise, but dumb as a brick. But she's both stupid and foolish.

The Morning Report yesterday linked to an article where a moderate announced that he was going to run against a hard-left candidate for Seattle City Council.

A deluge of threats on social media followed, targeting the guy, his family, and specifically his young children, naming the school that they go to.

He has since withdrawn from the race.

The left-wing weekly paper in Seattle wrote an article about this, and a number of commenters were completely unrepentant about what happened to the guy - if a candidate isn't a left-wing "progressive", any tactics used to drive him out of the race are justified.

The story attributes it to a volcano in Iceland.

Those usually occur on destructive plate boundaries, where water-laden sediments get subducted beneath other crustal plates. e.g. Indonesia, the Philippines, Cascade Mountains...

We are examining the possibility of refusing to seat ANY Representative from that state until such time as this right can be shown beyond any reasonable doubt to have been properly guaranteed and respected."

486 The story attributes it to a volcano in Iceland. I am a little skeptical of that, since Iceland is part of the mid-Atlantic Ridge, which is a spreading center, and the basaltic magma there does not usually cause explosive eruptions.


Iceland blew up a few years ago and the ash halted all air traffic in Europe for a week.

It appears the results of the experiment are that no, a nation cannot exist without a peasantry.

This isn't a new idea. There are certain intellectuals who do debates on college campuses - they used to take live questions, but they stopped that. The people in the audience asking the questions were so rambling, incoherent and beligerent, that they adopt the policy of making audience members write their questions on index cards which are then collected at the end and read and answered by the debaters.

People are too narcissistic to realize when they are being rude or obtuse or taking up too much time. This is a human problem, Acosta is just an exemplar.

No, you're not. I would put money you have an IQ greater than 85, which is about one standard deviation below average.

If you were ever admitted into the armed services then your IQ is above 85.

More importantly, stupid people almost never read political blogs and most of the time stupid people don't know they are stupid, because most stupid people are not smart enough to be able to recognize stupidity in themselves - it's called the Dunning Kruger effect.

Yep. Net-taxpayers and those who are or who have served in the military.

Note that the former group excludes government employees, who are net consumers of taxes.

Thank you, I've been arguing this for years.

You pay federal taxes, you get to vote in federal elections.
You don't pay taxes, are on the dole, or get a tax refund, you don't get to vote.

This is so common-sensical that many judges will rule it unconstitutional.

Evidence to that is too strong to ignore now.

We should have had the hot civil war back in the 70's.

But the American people discovered Xanex and Zolof. Pot has become acceptable. Too many people are too high and/or tranquilized to fight.

There's generally no sense of sacrifice for doing what is right.

I wrote 2,000 words 25 hours ago exactly about what thoughts just ran through your head - how coincidental - later I read the same elsewhere. There is a quickening. I am forbotten for sharing it. It is bad. I spent 30 minutes and distilled it to this paltry form by removing many key points and rendering it like the other useless, futilere, repetitive arguments we make day after day (basically I sold out to the man)

--

If one comes to the great negotiation table asking for X they are likely to walk away with with less.

So it's not surprising the wall openly requested will be hard to procure.

The Left screamed for single payer and came away with a slow walk to it. (Hmmm.. piecemeal... interesting synonym for step by step)

One disparity is that, unlike Obamacare, there aren't many more extreme believable starting positions than wanting to enforce a nation's borders, or verifying citizenship to vote.

This may be a fundamental disadvantage for the right in this game we are choosing to play ( that being being pinned against a wall of tradition and sanity - metaphorically speaking ).

Invertebrate representatives don't help either, of course.

Shadow of the Thin Man - My wife's uncle composed music for that film. David Snell. He was mostly a band leader back in the 1930s-1950s but also composed music for MGM.
He wrote a song for a boxing film that Myrna Loy starred in called The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933). It was forgettable and he was a mediocre composer but my mother in law still gets checks from ASCAP for royalties. The movie The Prizefighter etc was also pretty mediocre.

94 Kobe was one of four cities hit by Doolittle's raiders, but I've never looked into what they targeted. Presumably Kawasaki shipyard (they still build subs here, alternating with Mitsubishi in Nagasaki, sort of like the US used to do with Electric Boat and Newport News for attack subs).

MacArthur's local branch of GCHQ was in one of the only buildings that survived the war (and the earthquake), now it's the Daimaru department store. Have long meant to check to see if there's any markers noting this.

The video helps make it clear, all this chaos is orchestrated by the left, and I would maintain, it largely stems from the Soviet infiltration (now includes others ... Muslim Brotherhood, China, "Latin America")

Cubism, love it or hate it, is one of the most important movements in art history. It completely changed how people thought about art. By the time Georges Braque developed his "bizarre cubiques", the innovations of Monet, Van Gogh and Matisse had run their courses. By rethinking some of Cezanne's ideas, Braque and Picasso had blown minds and redirected art's future.
