Dirty little secret:

We have got
to have X% of Americans living in poverty, and that population has to
be managed in order to make sure it remains relatively stable. Otherwise
the industries built up around them and that rely on them would fail. I
wouldn't doubt if 10% of our workforce is built around The Poor. Court
systems, social workers (and entire university programs around the
nation), school lunch and other administration, etc.

Too big to fail, but only if you keep failing.

49 OT: The Guardian is all aflutter about the poor American Jihadi bride who (now that her three jihadi husbands are dead and Daesh is failed) is announcing she has made a mistake and is asking for a "second chance". She stated she "immediately" saw it was a mistake, but that of course is a lie. She repeatedly refused her father's overtures to bring her home, she tried to recruit jihadis to ram trucks into Memorial Day parades, and was a supporter...until they lost...Awwww, I say let her die for her beliefs just as she told her father she would do. I see no reason to bring her and her son of a jihadi fighter here at all. Naturally, she holds the jihadi baby in the picture...guess who also held babies in propaganda pics? Would they give Hitler a "second chance"?

430 So here's something I hadn't heard about: there was a bombing in Kashmir last week that killed 40 Indian paramilitary cops and today there was a shooting that killed nine people. Both attacks were believed to be made by a terrorist group sponsored by Pakistan. So, just another little worry to put in the back of your brain.

71 I just had an thought why Twitter is so protective of journalists.

1) journalists are some of the heaviest users
2) the journalists are sent DM's of non-public information all the time
3) we know Twitter reads DM's
4) Since it's allowed in the EULA, to read the DM's, that insider info is legally obtained

If Trump was as ruthless as Clinton going after Microsoft, he could use the SEC to destroy Twitter

two thoughts: One, they define poverty as people a certain percentage below the median income. Thus, there will always be that same percentage of people in poverty no matter what.

Two, not only does the "poverty industry" exist, but so much of the justification for things the government does is based on helping "the poor" or "the children" that if those people no longer seemed to need as much help, or if there weren't so many of them, people might stop and say "hey wait a minute... do we really need to do this?"

Which is why the government constantly trots out idiotic lines about, whatever, 25% of children not knowing where their next meal is coming from, despite several generations of food stamps, school lunches, school breakfasts, etc... not to mention food banks, charities, friends & family, etc.

AND not feeding your kid is neglect, if 1/4 of children in this country were truly going unfed, CPS would be yanking kids away from parents at an astonishing rate.

Of course, it's hard to keep up that storyline when the other big story is that 60% of kids or whatever are overweight.

Right. "poverty" means something very different in 2019 america then it did in 1955 America. Not to mention the rest of the world.

You can have a place to life, a bed, furniture, food, a car, a TV, a smart phone, money to go out to the bars, money for weed, etc... I just... that doesn't really strike me as "impoverished."

In a different time, that would be considered "middle class." It much of the world that would be considered "rich."

Mathematically speaking. Objectively. However, poverty, being a human condition, is a state of mind also. Thus, the poor are still with us and always will be, no matter how productive and paternalistic we become as a society. Which, if you think about it is probably a good thing, because otherwise, no hobo hunting in futureworld.

Friday when I was driving home from work, I noticed a shitload of cars in my peripheral vision along the marginal of the freeway. As traffic was slow, I was able to look over....

There were cars lined up as far as I could see down the marginal road, cops out directing traffic, a line wrapped around a building....

He was in a 2 door Cadillac and had a cart full of groceries. He paid with food stamps.

Eh, I haven't looked at their financials, but they are a publicly traded company. I imagine they do well on their ad revenues.

Their overhead costs are presumably pretty low -- rent some server / storage space from AWS or whoever, have some H1B coders and a minimal office staff. I can't imagine it costs much to run to Twitter.

Posted by: Sponge at February 18, 2019 01:42 PM (IXZGh)

In my early 20's, I used to live in a middle class neighborhood bordering a different city's lower class neighborhood.

My grocery store experiences were fucking eye opening.

Two carts full of chips, soda, frozen "food" and completely ridiculous shit to buy... always two transactions at the cash register -- one on EBT, one (for non-eligible items like beer) in cash.

And hundreds of dollars spent on quasi-food that makes you fat.

If I were in charge of the world, I would severely limit what kind of food food stamps can buy, and chips and soda would not be on the fucking list.

I remember this one lady specifically who I'd see from time to time, with fake nails, tattoos, brand new iPhone, driving a newer Escalade with rims, who was incredibly rude to everyone in the store, and would max out her EBT card with ice cream, chips, and soda. Like $200 on that shit at a time.

Then she'd buy a carton of cigarettes and a few cases of Corona with cash.

It was unbelievable to me.

My mother, actually, has an EBT card and does all her shopping for food on it. Now, she does eat reasonably healthy and does try to get quantity AND quality to get the most for her EBT dollar, but does feel that she's comfortable enough to pay cash for 6 handles of Vodka at the same time.

144 That would be my first guess is the flapper valve. The rubber or whatever material gets rotten from the water and chemicals in it. Then it no longer seals properly and you have a constantly running toilet.

Or the handle that pulls up the flapper has broken or bent and no longer lets the flapper down all the way.

Or it could be the seal in the incoming valve that is also activated by the handle. sometimes it will get gummy and no longer seal.

One stop fixes all of those as they make universals that will fit most toilets. Just shut off the water and remove the input line to the fill gizmo and replace it. They usually attach the flapper to that so you get everything that's wonky fixed with one gizmo.

While it's a bit dry in there clean out any sand or dirt from the bottom and next time get some of those discs that will dissolve and fix the water chemical problem.

If it's the handle thingy, that's separate.

Interestingly enough the numbers don't scale.

A family of four = 2 kids, 2 adults is supposed to be 600 a month?

Yet a single adult gets only 56 a month (tops 75) and it's an adult that can't work btw.

So I'm guessing you are using older number OR that's actually 4 children and 2 adults.

They always says the average food stamp recip gets 100 but that's a lie. They rate how much you get by the kids and how much money you have and how much assets you have.

169 So I'm guessing you are using older number OR that's actually 4 children and 2 adults.

They always says the average food stamp recip gets 100 but that's a lie. They rate how much you get by the kids and how much money you have and how much assets you have.


Posted by: jakee308 at February 18, 2019 01:59 PM (9RkRx)

I was just using someone elses numbers, I don't know how much $ people actually get.

I can say that I've seen many $200+ transactions on EBT cards, so $600 didn't seem unreasonable for a single mother with a gaggle of children to me.

Could be much less though, idk.

170 granted, I'm a single guy and have expensive tastes,
and really only eat high end meat and vegetables, but I still think I
spend less money per person on food in a month than some of the people
I've seen at the grocery store with their EBT cards.



Meat and fresh vegetables aren't really *that* expensive compared to soda, chips, and other assorted junk food.



And they're way more filling. Much more of a bang for your buck.

Back in the eighties when I first saw an onslaught of Russian immigrants, I would see the women in the market and they would only purchase meat, vegetables, bread. Never cereal, cookies, chips, ice cream, soda, etc. I don't know if they were refused food stamps, didn't want to take them due to shame, or did not need or want them. Or, more likely, all the above mentioned junk food simply was not part of their diet.

I've come to realize that these people are truly psychopathic. They don't feel the need to follow laws and rules but expect everyone else to, so they can exploit that. Then they get all indignant when others don't. Witness how angry Antifa assholes get when someone actually punches back.

Isn't that the story of the present State of Israel? They made the desert bloom. When they gave up part of their territory, it was filled with greenhouses that the incoming Pali's were supposed to take over and run, to continue the miracle. Pali's came in and destroyed the greenhouses, like locusts, just destroyed everything.

That part of the desert is no longer blooming.

You can buy most foods on food stamps -- just not most prepared foods, or tobacco / alcohol.

There is no reason you can't buy expensive steaks or fresh vegetables with your EBT card... shit, my local farmers market accepts EBT cards.

But I'd *much* rather people spend my money on that. It's the sugary cereals, chips, and soda and other quasi-foods that piss me off.

Like if you're going to waste your own money on empty, processed carbohydrates, whatever. But don't spend my money on that shit. You're supposed to be on the brink of starvation to the point where you need to demand the government give you my money or you wouldnt be able to eat.

At least eat real, nutritious food.

I have a good friend, an independent plumber, who tells me that whenever an old hotel closes or is about to be demolished (especially one built in the 50's or 60's) all of the local plumbers will work to outbid each other for the right to salvage the commodes, because they all work so much better and are in such higher demand than anything that can be purchased new today.

48 Jussie's crime is a huge hate crime ... he smeared Trump voters with a scripted fake narrative. He needs hate crime treatment.

If we are going to have stupid hate crimes, they need to be applied "equally". There was real damage done, politically but also to society on a large scale. (which means most of fake news media should be locked up for coordinated sedition and hate -- racketeering combined with sedition ... and bigotry/racism tossed in ... lampposts needed)

I have a couple of little dents in my forehead, which I assumed were just birth marks/birth defects. My mother told me otherwise.

When I was a toddler, they had these "book shelves" they threw together with boards and cinder blocks. Toddler-aged me decided they were ripe for climbing, with predictable results. Got a cinder block on my head for my troubles

They replaced them with proper book cases after that...

61 I think I'm obsessed over the Wall. I can't stop watching YouTube videos of the new construction and going over Google Maps looking up all the places Boarder Patrol plans to build new and upgraded barriers.

One interesting I learned that I hadn't realized is that the wall keeps illegals crossers IN as well as OUT. I saw a press conference at a ground breaking event where the CBP guy said that having the wall allows them to catch crossers once they've gone over. Before they'd just run over to the Mexican side and boarder agents couldn't do much about it. So when ever critics claim that high-tech is better, this is a good counterargument as it keeps smugglers from playing cat and mouse with boarder patrol.

The Morning Rant



talking ape.jpg
"With Jussie Smollett's story of being mugged by MAGA racists falling apart faster than whatever's left of Bill Kristol's mind, the usual MSM outlets are new hilariously trying to walk back all of their crap reporting by trying to deflect the discussion to 'the larger picture' or 'the overall context', which, when translated into normal speech, means, 'screw the facts, Trump is still to blame.' It's like they pulled out their own version of the Otter Defense and are now triumphantly marching out of the room in single file, with their noses pointed piously skyward. Bunch of sanctimonious bastards. I just can't wait until Nick Sandmann's lawsuit hits the fan. I want to see these media hacks writhing in pain as they are forced to deliver on-the-air apologies, or their employers are forced to settle for huge sums of money."

22 I get willowed so much, we might as well call it being YD'd.

At least this is topical:

Smollett's attorney has released a statement, including the following:

"As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with."

Jussie has to be one of the biggest dickheads in a country full of them.

It's bad enough to say "Hey, you hungry foreigners trying to make it in Hollywood, I have the key to your success - just do this thing for me. Super easy, barely an inconvenience," so you can convince them to fake a hate crime.

But when you get caught for it, to throw them so thoroughly under the bus like that is just low.

All Hate Crimes are Fake until proven otherwise.

Addendum: Unless committed against a conservative by a scumbag leftist-

in which case it's likely true.*

49 From previous thread.
"Answer as to why the attack wasn't on the security cameras, from police

sources - Jussie *wanted* it to be on camera, he had identified a

security camera and had the attack carried out close to it. But he

didn't realize that it was actually facing the other way, so they were

all standing *behind* the camera when they did it."

If this is true, I can just see the look on Jussie's face when the police reported that they could see all his movements except for 60 seconds and saw no attack.

Trump and us deplorables are lucky having the enemies we do. But then the Left grew them for us by putting ideological purity over all other values when choosing who they'd raise up to prominence for the masses.

Media did not mention it and I'm not expert but I think she was in an hispanic neighborhood.

Look at how the Democrats pounced on this. Yes, seized and pounced!!

Specifically, Kamala Harris pulled together anti-lynching legislation awfully fast. Smollett has attended Kamala events, and has been pictured arm and arm with other CA Democrats like Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, and even the Obamas.

Well. There are rules. Rules of course have to be enforced. And if the enforcement of those rules becomes, erm, "situational", then we have a nation not of laws, but of men. Of course, law schools used to focus on this kind of thing. Now I think there are no good teachers anymore. Its all "woke" Professoring now.

Not unless the client files a complaint, and he's almost certainly doing exactly what his client is asking him to do. You can never get in trouble for faithfully following the clients directions, even if they do lead to him cutting his own throat.

Defense attorneys know that the best, most lucrative clients of all are always those who have a lot of money and yet are incredibly stupid, constantly doing self destructive things.

189 BBQ and Cheese don't mix."

It ain't 'Q. Pork shoulder, bone in, slo cooker w/chicken broth, garlic, salt, pepper. 6 to 8 hours, drain, pull, mix w/a couple tablespoons of applesauce, put shredded mix on shallow tray under broiler till crisp.
Meanwhile, prep Texas toast (store bought is a no no), 'murrican cheese, bacon.

Put together in skillet w/teaspoon of hot lard. Flip when edges are crisp.

Trust me, it's good.

Caveat. If his lawyer participating in the fraud, knowingly, doesn't matter if its a pleading or not, lawyer can't do it. If it is a continuing crime which it appears to be, apparently, then a lawyer should withdraw as soon as he knows of it. (You can represent someone for past crimes, but your job isn't to facilitate the commission of current ones.) If the crime is continuing and also is likely to result in future bodily harm, lawyer would probably have to disclose client secrets, to prevent harm. Or face sanctions.

I'm not a criminal lawyer, but there are rules. I'm just not sure what this guy's lawyer knows, or what he was taught. Also, some lawyers shouldn't be lawyers because, sociopath, C.F. former would be presidential candidate, now living in a van down by the river.

153 Malia Obama described President Trump as 'evil' on a secret Facebook page where she exchanges messages friends including Joe Biden's granddaughter, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.

Its cover photograph is of a row of pink post-it notes which read: 'Donald Trump is President,' 'This is not normal', 'Donald Trump is evil' and 'Don't be complacent.'

One thing I want to point out in the racist/gay/maga subzero hoax is that regular Chicago reporters were skeptical from the get-go.

167 DNC Chair Perez: Yes, you can be a Democratic Socialist and a Capitalist.

Progressives, in particular, but GOP too, have so perverted the term Capitalism, that Perez's statement may actually be true.

I fear that today's Yoots aren't even exposed to classical theory on capitalism, the economic system that promotes individual freedom. As far as I can tell, the DNC and GOP seem to agree, mostly, that this Country should focus on groups, not individuals.

Socialism's focus is on groups. You can slice and dice individuals into all sorts of group, nowadays mostly on racial, gender, gay and intellectual (i.e. people that believe in Progressivism). The economic system is tweaked to benefit this group over that one, and thus group identity becomes paramount.

Of course, this is fundamentally at odds with the rugged individualism on which this Country was founded, blind justice, private property, the individual's right to pursue his or her own interests, beliefs, and to be rewarded for his/her work product, if other free people want to buy it.

But when "Capitalism" is morphed into meaning "Not Capitalism," as has been the case for the last half-century, I honestly don't know you can engage in meaningful debate on the issue at all, let alone attack Perez for this statement.

169 Ace needs a MaxHeadroom type character to use on You-Tube ... to hide his identity, but to do a better version of sarcasm than Jon Stewart did. By being comedian, he can be more harsh (just a joke, see late night "comedy").


I guess buying into AP news would cost too much, but it would be nice to be able to use media footage of events, but an Ace narrative as in the commentary here. But You-Tube seems to have ad connections, and would probably defund Ace. Which is why we need alternative video with broad connections, and probably anti-trust action against the racketeering by the social media giants.

230 "Yes, you can be a Democratic Socialist and a Capitalist"

even "capitalism" needs a lot of government to make complex systems "fair and safe". But a country based in liberty pushes for individual (free will) accomplishment being rewarded, often with great riches (or great failure also allowed).


socialism takes the winner's gains and redistributes to support even those that choose not to work, or offers paths to welfare with careful lying and faking. Obama's right to health care or housing and high speed internet ... that removes essential motivating factors.


Centralized government always grows to become a tyrant, a crime syndicate against the people, supported by murder and thugs. (See DNC, FBI, open borders for drugs and human trafficking).

Melania's trips to far have been to the border, Afghanistan, and the Trump's home Mar-a-Lago. But the MSM goes nuts when she even goes there.

I don't know that anyone has it better than AoSHQ in this regard. Certainly any news/politics/current events blog would kill to have that level of engagement.

HotAir is a pathetic joke whose readers (I mean the ones that actually exist, not the clicks they report to advertisers) couldn't care less about it.

351 socialism takes the winner's gains and redistributes to support even those that choose not to work, or offers paths to welfare with careful lying and faking. Obama's right to health care or housing and high speed internet ... that removes essential motivating factors.
--------

You can best explain why Socialism sucks (from economic perspective) by explaining that each additional $1,000 the government takes out of your pocket is $1,000 less that person has to pursue their own wants and needs. Most of us have to save money each month in order to fund college for our kids, a new car, or god forbid, maybe even a vacation every couple years.

So, take another $1,000 a month from me (as has been the case with ObamaCare's destruction of the health care system in the U.S.) and I'm forced to cut vacations, college funds, and the like from my own budget, which means I continue to work like a dog, and get less and less freedom to pursue things I want to do with the increasingly minimal amount of $ that is left over after covering my monthly burn rate for just breathing while owning a house and having a few kids.

And, completely ignored by Progressives, that extra $1,000 taken from me doesn't just drop down to intended beneficiaries. A huge percentage gets consumed in Gov. carrying costs (e.g., funding fed employee salary and pensions).

So, Fed take more money from me, is shockingly awful at converting that money into a benefit used by anybody other than the Government itself, and I spend more and more of my time and productivity contributing to this dysfunctional feedback loop, while I am unable to go on vacation, fund my kids' education without them incurring massive debt, or buy things I want in the private sector.

Yea. More Socialism please.

Not only didn't they say anything, the other guy was 'enraged' about what 'happened' to Jussie....

Two readings were done by the actors in attendance, which included Zachary Quinto, on the morning and afternoon of January 28.

Quinto would later speak out about the attack on Smollett, saying: 'I was absolutely enraged by the injustice and the senselessness of such violence. but i was also vividly reminded that we MUST continue our fight for equality and acceptance at every turn in this country and in this world.

'When talented and courageous young men like jussie are targeted and struck down in our streets - we must collectively RISE UP against such hatred and be IDENTIFIED and be PROUD and be STRONG in our convictions of truth and self-love and love for one another.'

I think the Indian railroad and Chinese military are usually credited as largest employers in the world.

And I'm not going to reargue my last battle on this one, but I think the *true* number of how much of our money directly or indirectly goes to government or is forced to be spent by laws and regulations is much higher.

If you just think about any supply chain and how many taxes, regulations, etc. are between the origins of that chain and you, the end consumer, it'd make your head spin.

We had a torrential, Biblical rainstorm, accompanied by howling winds, here in SoCal at the end of last week.

Roads were flooded, and flash flood warnings were all over smart phones all day Thursday. The storm was forecast to continue to Friday and through the weekend. As a consequence, I cancelled our regular Friday baseball practice, to everyone's approval.

Friday dawns clear and sunny. Perfect weather.

It's very true. The opportunity costs of all the money that goes to
various levels of government through direct indirect taxation, or
just gets burned through regulations is staggering.


Imagine if you will a gigantic leech attached to the country...
And don't look to anybody in Congress to cut the size of government. Most of them are lawyers and don't operate from a free-market economic model. They do not generate wealth, they take it away from those who do. That's why they always think that economics is a zero-sum game: that's all they know and evidently they're not smart enough to understand that the overwhelming majority of the economy doesn't work that way. Prolly all flunked economics classes...hence lawyer.

which is why I say it is "organized crime" at one level or another.

All palms must be greased ... which works for not just real business, but the organized syndicates. Culture of corruption is inevitable when all power is centralized.


Corporatism also bought off DC, probably even more than the crime syndicates. But they also now intend to rule us, and to break us via open borders. This is criminal action against the country we fought to preserve. And so we see Hillary's Foundation (and many other leftist foundations) still protected at the highest places (AG, FBI, DNC) .. and corporate social media has their claws out for free speech of conservatives. Sedition with a corporate logo, but "free" email and social media.


CFR, Foundations and oligarchs should have their seditious meetings infiltrated by our government ... they are at war with we the people.

--------

That's bad, but I doubt that figure is correct. I bet it's considerably higher than that. Especially when you factor in the effect of all of the federal dollars wasted on other, non-productive, projects like studying X through the gay feminist perspective. Remember Krugman and Obama crowing about the "Stimulus" in Obama term 1? We'll never get a full accounting on that, but that $1B was burned on a whole bunch of nothing.

Forget the invention known as "money." Value is produced, fundamentally, by transforming something else into a product or service that others want to buy, in a way that results in a greater value than the inputs, net of labor taken to produce it. If the net outputs produce more than the net inputs, the economy grows. When you have no productive outputs (i.e. nothing to buy and no new invention or idea that helps others produce something to buy), the economy contracts. Handouts given to people, in whatever form, fall squarely into the latter category.

That 44% figure is several years old. Just think of how much money the Feds spend every year and they're still deficient.

I refuse to think about all the money that government takes away from me because I'm already pretty depressed already. Nothing I can do to change it anyways. And I sure didn't vote for it.

440 426...Corporatism...
=====

Agreed. Corporatism is the game played in Congress where politicians have correctly figured that raising money for reelection is hard work, but much easier if you ignore individual contributions and instead focus on raising reelection funds from a small number of deep pockets.

See, Boehner, Ryan, Cocaine-Mitch, et. al., are lazy. THEY, in leadership positions, have access to the master party funds. That money is doled out by them, to other Congress members, to support reelections. Their own reelection finance concerns are taken care of, and they can take care of a large number of their colleagues' finance needs by identifying those who will tow the line of the financiers, the well-funded corporations and interest groups (like the US Chamber of Commerce, the #1 lobbying spender in the U.S. (see http://tinyurl.com/y4hv33pe))

They could raise the same amount of funds by firing up the base by passing things their base voters want, and then eliciting campaign donations in response, but that's hard work. A lot easier for them to spend their time getting big checks from just a few benefactors. Of course, they won't get those funds, unless they support (or don't support) whatever those benefactors want.

And here we are, and here we have been, for my entire lifetime. GOP establishment does what it does because it's easy and it works. We, the GOP voters, get failure theater on all the issues that matter.

Paul Ryan, on the other hand, gets a cushy six or seven figure salary from here to eternity so he can help these very same lobbyists continue the Corporatism. And the Country burns.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at February 18, 2019 01:44 PM (db5dt)

441 don't forget there is $200T or so in unfunded obligations ... Americans are spending as if they have that money ... it is just a promise. And much of the other wealth is in a stock/bond market perhaps valued twice as high as "reality", if one considers a P/E of 15 to be normal. And how much of that is based on lies and false hopes?


And the richest 0.1% are now richer than since the roaring 20's ... per this short article. But Trump probably has to keep the markets inflated to win in 2020 ... lots of deals with lots of devils.

442 "They could raise the same amount of funds by firing up the base by passing things their base voters want"

they'd never have the funding that the left (or GOPe to lesser degree) gets from the MSM constant campaign. But Trump showed even without the same money, the right message can win. But only a Trump can stand up to the withering attacks (or maybe he has fallen to them by now, to some degree).


BigMoney can focus even more on selected battle grounds, so hard for a smaller player to prevail. But again, the right message can defeat big money. But even government is involved in destroying such candidates (Lois Lerner put one such candidate under investigation, running against Durbin the Turbin ... Turbin won)

"With Jussie Smollett's story of being mugged by MAGA racists falling apart faster than whatever's left of Bill Kristol's mind, the usual MSM outlets are new hilariously trying to walk back all of their crap reporting by trying to deflect the discussion to 'the larger picture' or 'the overall context', which, when translated into normal speech, means, 'screw the facts, Trump is still to blame.' It's like they pulled out their own version of the Otter Defense and are now triumphantly marching out of the room in single file, with their noses pointed piously skyward. Bunch of sanctimonious bastards. I just can't wait until Nick Sandmann's lawsuit hits the fan.

22 I get willowed so much, we might as well call it being YD'd.

At least this is topical:

Smollett's attorney has released a statement, including the following:

"As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with."

Jussie has to be one of the biggest dickheads in a country full of them.

It's bad enough to say "Hey, you hungry foreigners trying to make it in Hollywood, I have the key to your success - just do this thing for me. Super easy, barely an inconvenience," so you can convince them to fake a hate crime.

But when you get caught for it, to throw them so thoroughly under the bus like that is just low.

All Hate Crimes are Fake until proven otherwise.

49 From previous thread.
"Answer as to why the attack wasn't on the security cameras, from police

sources - Jussie *wanted* it to be on camera, he had identified a

security camera and had the attack carried out close to it. But he

didn't realize that it was actually facing the other way, so they were

all standing *behind* the camera when they did it."

If this is true, I can just see the look on Jussie's face when the police reported that they could see all his movements except for 60 seconds and saw no attack.

Trump and us deplorables are lucky having the enemies we do. But then the Left grew them for us by putting ideological purity over all other values when choosing who they'd raise up to prominence for the masses.

That's why you put the bacon on top and protect the Tomato with lettuce. The lettuce won't warm too bad, as long as the bacon isn't sizzling when you put it on. Mop the fat grease off with a paper towel prior to placing it on the sandwich and you're golden.

Not unless the client files a complaint, and he's almost certainly doing exactly what his client is asking him to do. You can never get in trouble for faithfully following the clients directions, even if they do lead to him cutting his own throat.

Defense attorneys know that the best, most lucrative clients of all are always those who have a lot of money and yet are incredibly stupid, constantly doing self destructive things.

The entire rationale ---(such as it was) --- for special "hate crimes" legislation was that these crimes create a climate of distrust in a pluralistic society.
This applies to fake "hate crimes" as well and they should be punished as severely.

Caveat. If his lawyer participating in the fraud, knowingly, doesn't matter if its a pleading or not, lawyer can't do it. If it is a continuing crime which it appears to be, apparently, then a lawyer should withdraw as soon as he knows of it. (You can represent someone for past crimes, but your job isn't to facilitate the commission of current ones.) If the crime is continuing and also is likely to result in future bodily harm, lawyer would probably have to disclose client secrets, to prevent harm. Or face sanctions.

I'm not a criminal lawyer, but there are rules. I'm just not sure what this guy's lawyer knows, or what he was taught. Also, some lawyers shouldn't be lawyers because, sociopath, C.F. former would be presidential candidate, now living in a van down by the river.

You know why: these are the same people who openly hate whites, and heterosexual white men in particular.

For example: Sarah Jeong has made hundreds of tweets mocking and expressing hatred toward whites, white men, white women, old white men, etc.. She hears a story that perfectly conforms to her belief that white heterosexual men ---who are freakin' MAGA hat wearing Trumpies! --- did something that demonstrates just how awful she's always thought they are. There are many Jeongs out there in today's media (see Nick Monroe's exhaustive deep dive into Buzzfeed, HuffPost, and others' 'I hate white ppl' tweets).

The question is: what would it take for them to not believe it?

Yeah they really are, that dumb and that self-deluded. I think that's almost always the case though. I believe there are a few on the left who know what's up and are crafty behind the scenes -- very few -- but the rest are just ignorant, stupid, credulous, and easily manipulated. They're emotionally driven and intellectually immature.

And the school system is designed to put out young people with the same characteristics. If you today stopped all the biased crap and stupid gender/multiculti/SJW influences and classes we'd still have kids coming out leftist because they are deliberately not taught to think, reason, and analyze.

"Compartmentalizing" such ops is necessary though, or as we see with Trump/Russia, the thing can unravel and everyone it touches gets exposed. I don't know, we need more leaks from WikiLeaks and their sources. Without them, how much would we know at this point?


And would Hilda be prezzie, if some of her clan's emails had not been exposed? They only denied where the emails came from (Russia they said, but probably dead Seth) ... they did not deny the truth in the emails, which exposed criminal activity ... which is still being covered up by our FBI.

There are no names of victims, no police acknowledgment, and no news media coverage, but we still know that:

I know this sounds like I'm fear-mongering, but of the three attacks I've seen posted about today, they all wrote out a consistent description of the attackers: two white males in a maroon SUV. No license plate yet, but they're allegedly Proud Boys. That doesn't seem a stretch given that Proud Boys, regularly calls for beating up queer people.

Exactly. All it would take for Pelosi to salvage her credibility would be to tweet something like: "When I first heard that Jussie Smollett was the victim of a hate crime, I believed it. But now, subsequent investigation has revealed that he staged the whole thing. I regret my rush to judgment and I hope Mr. Smollet gets the help that he obviously needs."

223 What it takes to get disbarred - most every lawyer gets a monthly magazine from his State Bar (that's where those dues go!) and most of them have in the back a list of disciplinary proceedings and disbarments. Most of them go like this:

"Slick Williams, Estate Lawyer, was investigated for having taken large sums from the Estate's accounts and depositing them into his own checking account without reporting having done so. Since this was the 6th client of his who had complained to us of him doing the exact same thing over the last 5 years, the State Bar took the hard action of disbarring him. He can seek readmittance in 5 years."

254 (Reuters) - Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld, the first Republican to challenge President Donald Trump for their party's presidential nomination in 2020, said on Sunday that six more years of Trump's "antics" in the White House would be bad for America.



Yeah, the booming economy, rebuilding the military, reestablishing our position in the world, securing our borders. Just awful.

282 Caveat. If his lawyer participating in the fraud, knowingly, doesn't matter if its a pleading or not, lawyer can't do it. If it is a continuing crime which it appears to be, apparently, then a lawyer should withdraw as soon as he knows of it. (You can represent someone for past crimes, but your job isn't to facilitate the commission of current ones.) If the crime is continuing and also is likely to result in future bodily harm, lawyer would probably have to disclose client secrets, to prevent harm. Or face sanctions. "

High dollar lawyers who know they have lucrative but sketchy clients will routinely instruct those clients to ONLY answer the questions they ask them directly, even in private, and to NEVER tell them "everything" they know. And that lawyer will phrase his questions to his client very carefully, even in private, to make sure that he never "finds out" anything that could expose him to sanctions. I took a legal ethics class once that explained this very carefully, as a way to guarantee you never broke the rules. It is never against the rules to not find out something, because a lawyer is not an investigator, just an advocate.

A smart client would realize immediately that a lawyer who does that is setting up his client so that he can be jettisoned quickly and easily if the situation goes bad, while still owing lots of fees - which is why a lot of lawyers love to work with really stupid (but rich) clients.

324 To even buy into the "real hate crime" vs "fake hate crime" distinction is to play on their (totalitarian) turf.

The whole concept consciously degrades the difference between thought/speech and action, i.e. your thoughts are violence and their violence is speech. It also, inevitably, places "preferred" victim groups over other groups, and perversely only serves to stoke excessive identity politics over all other values.

The entire concept is at odds with the nature of true tolerance (I can like or dislike anyone, so long as I don't actually infringe their rights or do violence to them) and enshrines Thoughtcrime.

Posted by: Bronco Bama


Heard a young female black activist being interviewed on npr yesterday regarding Black History Month. She was complaining there was too much G.W. Carver, Rosa Parks and MLK and not enough "struggle" talk. Not enough hate whitey for her.

The interviewer asked her about Morgan Freeman's assertion that there shouldn't even be a Black History Month and she replied that he's just an OLD black person and should be ignored.

332 61 regarding the "threatening letter" sent to Jussie before the attack (and it's obvious now, that was the biggest "tell" from the start that this was an orchestrated hoax) police sources have revealed that it also had the ominous "white powder" in it. But, it was tested and found to simply be some crushed aspirin. Ooh!!! Scary!!!

---------

That was his extra-special most bestest move. The fake beat-down would only make him face local charges for filing a false police report. But by sending that through the US Mail, he would be setting himself up for federal charges. You think the FBI agents on the case asked him any questions about the letter? Gee, I hope he answered them truthfully.

354 Hey Morons, Barack Obama here. I see a lot of confusion in here about the JV team ISIS. These young muslim men, any of whom could have been my own son, have suffered oppression from the Western world for several generations and should not be condemned for expressing their universal human rights by raping young girls and nailing headless corpses to cross along the highway. These types of calls for understanding from one of the great peaceful religions of the world deserve to be heard. We reject calls to continue the oppression of these noble youths. The arc of history is with us, as we continue to hope the world will change and enter the loving peaceful arms of intersectionality feminist theory. We shall persist, unless the Jews stop us.

Supposedly McCabe said it was Kelly and Sessions. BUT I think you have to take this more as a measure of McCabe's willingness to lie than anything else. The whole 25th amendment issue was so idiotic - even a quick reading of the actual amendment shows that it is actually HARDER than impeachment, and that it has to be led by the Vice President. McCabe is a moron for having ever seriously considered it; but maybe he thought as an excuse for a coup, he could make it work.

The outspoken civil rights leader addressed recent reports that the alleged assault on the black, openly gay "Empire" actor may have been staged with two bodybuilding brothers, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo.

"I, among many others when hearing of the report, said that the reports were horrific and that we should come with all that we can come with in law enforcement to find out what happened and the guilty should suffer the maximum," Sharpton said Sunday night on his show "PoliticsNation" on MSNBC.

"I still maintain that," he continued.

Months later, a second background check of Gary Martin found his 1995 aggravated assault conviction in Mississippi involving the stabbing of an ex-girlfriend. But it prompted only a letter stating his gun permit had been revoked and ordering him to turn over his firearm to police - raising questions about the state's enforcement to ensure those who lose their permits also turn over their weapons.

I can't watch her Woodstock performances (and Big Sur, I think) without feeling the passion and feeling she had. And she was quirky. I liked that about her. Plus, I read a biography about her years ago where she kinda slammed the feminazis of the day saying something to the effect that she never felt the need to be a part of their movement...because they always seemed so angry all the time.

86 Whether lionized or demonized, redheads seem to hold an outsize place in the Jewish imagination.

Sometimes called Ginger Jews, Jewish redheads have inspired a great number of origin stories, including speculation that they descended from the ancient Turkic group the Khazars. Thats likely a myth, but royte yidn (thats Yiddish for red Jews) have appeared in Yiddish folklore as noble warriors as well as demons like Lilith.

It may not be true that Jews are more likely to have red hair than any other group, but some people think otherwise. One Orthodox publication warned against anti-redhead prejudice. Some countries go so far as to celebrate their redheaded population, and at least two Israeli photographers, Sharon Bareket and Nurit Benchetrit, have used redheads as artistic inspiration.

Maybe worldwide Jews should follow their example. After all, tradition has it that the messiah will descend from King David, himself often depicted as having red hair. And despite the appeal of South Park holidays, you wouldnt want to kick a potential messiah, would you?

135 There was an Vans store MAGA hat incident yesterday that seems slightly fishy.

Mom and her 14-year-old son are in the store, and a worker, you can see his empoyee ID on his neck lanyard, tells the boy to take off his MAGA hat, and allegedly says "fuck you" to the kid.

Kid and mom have cell phones in hand, at the ready. Mom gets it on video with her phone, and then marches the employee to the store manage at the check out, to complain.

Vans canned the employee. In the video, the store supervisor was smirking at the charge by the mom.

Did mom and boy troll all the stores in the mall until they got the reaction they were seeking? I know tween girls always have phones in hand, but mom and MAGA-hat son?

163 My lovely morning -

Went out to the car to leave for work at 7:30. Opened the passenger door, laid the phone on the seat, started the car, grabbed the snowbrush, shut the door. Once I finished cleaning the car off, went to open the door. All four doors were LOCKED.

So. Phone locked in car. Can't get back in the my building as the fob is locked in the car on my key ring. The office at the condo is closed anyway as its a holiday. No one is coming out to go to work because it's a holiday. I wait around, getting colder and colder as its pouring snow. I even attempted to break the window of the car. Finally someone comes out.

As it turns out, he's late for work, but lets me use his phone to call roadside assistance. I finally get that arranged, but again, they can't get to my car because the parking lot is gated and the fob to open the gates is....locked in my car. They also can't call me if they need to because my phone is locked in the car. Before my benefactor left, I asked him to let me back in the building.

I'm sitting there waiting and waiting, watching for someone to come. I couldn't call work to let them know I was going to be late. Then I thought I should go back outside to watch for the guy to come, but it's really cold and I will be locked out again.

I went out again anyway, just because I was getting desperate. I was able to get into the lobby area where the building call box is. I'm waiting and watching. Soon, I see movement out the corner of my eye and could have sworn I saw someone go into the office. I dialed the office number and THANK GOD the maintenance man had shown up. He let me in, gave me the spare key to my condo and I was able to get my spare set of car keys.

Needless to say, I need to put a better a system in place.

And the $145 million for it didn't come from some long-ago-passed funding bill passed under former President Barack Obama. It was included in U.S. Customs and Border Protection's budget for fiscal year 2018. Unlike other parts of new barrier construction and reparation, Trump can actually take credit for this one!

The other day, I ran across them, and looked a the prices online.

They are still worthless.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WTHR) - A Middletown man who claimed to be the sailor in the famous 1945 Times Square picture has died.

The Providence Journal reported that George Mendonsa died Sunday after a fall at an assisted living facility. He would have turned 96 on Tuesday.

The picture was taken Aug. 14, 1945, after the announcement that Japan had surrendered to the United States, ending World War II. People spilled into the New York City streets from restaurants, bars and movie theaters to celebrate.

The woman in the photo, Greta Zimmer Friedman, died in 2016 at age 92.

LIFE Magazine published the picture, but never confirmed Mendonsa's identity, nor that of Glenn McDuffie, who died in 2014 at age 86 claiming that HE was the sailor in the picture.

Alfred Eisenstaedt took the photo, but never revealed his subjects before his death in 1995.

A Houston Police artist analyzed the picture and concluded McDuffie was the sailor.

Later, facial recognition technology supported Mendonsa's claim.

I like my presidential signatures.

Someday I'll get back into actually procuring more.

I have a Madison, then nothing until Coolidge. Then I have every president except JFK and Obama through Trump (got that one in person). I'm not sure of the provenance of the Reagan (it's super easy to get auto-pens but really hard to find authentics). I think mine is authentic, but I'm not sure.

215 One of my local banks has a polite sign on the door to remove sunglasses, hoodies, and hats (by which they probably mean ball caps, not fedoras like mine). I doff my hat when I go in there, but I would anyway. It would be interesting to test, as I'm a long time customer, and I'm usually going in to deposit money, not take it out.''

When there's a general rule, applying to everyone, then I have no issue with it - that's just old school politeness, and it actually always bugs me to see men wearing cowboy hats, ball caps, whatever inside a restaurant or some other venue. But, knowledge of what constitutes civilized behavior seems to have passed out of our culture; we're all barbarians now.

217 Trump boasted at a news conference on Friday that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given him a copy of a five-page letter he'd sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which selects the annual Peace Prize laureates.

Referring to Abe, Trump said: "He said: 'I have nominated you, respectfully, on behalf of Japan. I am asking them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize.' I said, 'Thank you.'"

The national newspaper Asahi Shimbun, citing multiple Japanese government sources, reported Sunday that the U.S. government "informally" asked Japan to nominate Trump after he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last year.

Then after a half hour waiting in line, they announce the plane was fixed, back to gate. (and through security again) We all board, and taxi out and taxi back to gate and unload. Finally get a flight out, missed my connection, rescheduled on another flight. But that flight was very late coming from San Diego, Made it home as the sun was raising, Just like my teen years when I came home at sunrise. Sneaking in the house....

I went through a summer as a yute when I collected baseball cards. And, as a result, I have a shoe box full of them. About 20 years ago, I tried to sell them. They were worthless because they were not in plastic card holders and had been handed.

The other day, I ran across them, and looked a the prices online.

They are still worthless.

A buddy of mine used to do those storage unit auctions and jumped all over one that came from a guy that sold baseball cards. Thousands of them, complete with all the card holders, sealed boxes of cards straight from the factory etc. Paid about $1500 for the whole lot.

He spent the next year and a half trying to sell off the collection on ebay and got bupkis. Not a dime.

He finally gave up and put the whole collection on Craigslist and sold it to another dupe for... $1500.

247 According to an account of the Banqiao Dam by a Chinese journalist writing under the pseudonym Yi Si, on Aug. 8, as workers stared curiously at the retreating water level of the reservoir, a voice in the dark called out: "The River Dragon has come!" And suddenly the dam ruptured, unleashing 600 billion liters of water and destroying an entire village. By Aug. 17, 1975 reports Si, 1.1 million people remained trapped by flooding with 50 to 60 percent of food air-dropped into the area floating in the murky waters. It would take weeks for the waters to drain, revealing bloated corpses dotting the landscape in the late summer sun.

The government kept news of the disaster from being broadcast nationally, and there hadn't been any international observers present. But when China's Ministry of Water Resources and Electric Power released a study in July 1989, it reported that the dam breach caused more than 85,000 people to die instantly. Two years earlier, "On Macro-Decision Making in the Three Gorges Project," a study conducted by eight Chinese water science experts who probably had access to censored government reports, estimated the number of total dead -- from flooding and the resulting epidemics and famine -- at 230,000.

But their answer was out of drugs and ignorance, and the fake youthful allure of Marxism and "world peace" without understanding the need for structure and (a restrained but necessary) government.


And I think their message was coordinated/marketed with the help of those old Soviet infiltrators. They were working on several fronts (and still are).

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - If you are looking for a cruise that lets you get to dive into one of the most popular '80s sitcoms, you're in luck.

Flip Phone Events is organizing a Golden Girls cruise that will depart from Miami before making stops at Key West and Cozumel next February.

The sitcom, which was set in Miami, ended in 1992, but it still has a dedicated fan base.

Activities include Golden Girls trivia, a Shady Pines craft corner, Key West Golden Girls bar crawl, Golden Girls costume contest and fancy dinner and a "One Night in St. Olaf" dance party.

The cruise will kick off in Feb. 24, 2020 and tickets start at $1,000.

I sincerely hope that the CPD proves me wrong and charges Smollett. It sounds like that may happen. I'm glad they're not like the spineless catamites that run our department in Denver.

Secondly Smollett's attorney has released a statement, including:

"As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with."

Jussie has to be one of the biggest dickheads in a country full of them.

It's bad enough to say "Hey, you hungry foreigners trying to make it in Hollywood, I have the key to your success - just do this thing for me. Super easy, barely an inconvenience," so you can convince them to fake a hate crime.

But when you get caught for it, to throw them so thoroughly under the bus like that is just low.

The Morning Report - 2/18/19

crisgot.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and the lead story continues to be immigration and border security in the wake of the President's signing of the CR monstrosity that allowed the government to remain open (G-d forbid it shouldn't, right?) while providing some funds for the building of the border wall, along with his simultaneous declaration of a national emergency to use his executive authority to appropriate funds from other agencies. Except within the over 1,100-page monstrosity are thousands of tiny time pills that actually prevent even a shovelful of dirt from being dug, adequate funds or not. I don't know; Trump is boastful as ever that it's going to get done but frankly, I don't see how. From a political standpoint, I would have preferred him vetoing the bill and then forcing Congress - Democrats and GOP-e alike - to override him and then letting them take full blame for this. Beyond that, the insanity of our national debt as well as the size and scope of the feral Federal government are travesties in and of themselves, as well as the lifeblood of the very swamp that the President set out to drain.

I'm disappointed. I still stand behind our President 100% and am grateful for what the alternative could have been. Angelo Codevilla, the author of the seminal essay (and now book) The Ruling Class now laments in Foggy Crossroads (linked below, as well):

...Trump slid into this bind as more than half his presidency slid by because he relied on the Republican Party's establishment. This reliance was his choice. Nobody else's. Recall that Trump won both the nomination and the presidency by running as much against the Republican part of the ruling class as against the Democrat part of the ruling class.

Since the Republican Party is part and parcel of the ruling class that is ruining America, relying on it to make America great again was doomed to be self-defeating...

...But Trump knows (or does he?) that the Deplorables are not stupid, and that a spreading sense of betrayal among them is the one and only thing sure to defeat him and to deliver him, friendless, to ruling class revenge.

On the other hand, Trump really might carry through in deed the role he previewed in his El Paso rally. In that case, through Obamian-Bushite behavior toward existing law (selective enforcement, executive orders) and Jacksonian behavior toward the courts ("now let them enforce it!") he would create pressure on the Republican establishment to bet their jobs on the outcome of the next election. For which outcome he would set the agenda...

Elsewhere, legal eagles from Mark Levin to William Jacobson opine that the declaration of a national emergency is well within the President's Constitutional authority but surprisingly, Heather MacDonald, a woman who is usually spot on about politics is way off base, and declares the President's action a danger to the Constitution, and encouraging SCOTUS to strike it down. On what planet has Ms. MacDonald been living on since 2009? I left this comment for her:

...I think she fails to fully appreciate the situation the nation is in. The Constitution has been all but shredded, especially during the 8-year reign of error that was Obama. The Democrats will do everything to seize and hold power and then use the very same Constitution as either a shield or a cudgel whenever we attempt to reign them in and reverse course.

Does she really think that if and more likely when (G-d forbid) the Democrats regain the White House they will play by the rules and respect the Constitution? Look what they'e done with virtually every part of the Bill of Rights so far and yet she is upset at what the President has done vis a vis declaring a national emergency...

...I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we crossed the rubicon ages ago. Frankly, given the nature of who and what the Democrats are, as well as their stooges in the GOP establishment, if President Trump here and now declared martial law, dissolved Congress, took control of the legacy media, outlawed the Democrat and other leftist parties as well somehow rooted out ever anti-American element in society, I would cheer.

America is in the opening stages of breaking apart anyway. I pray its nonviolent and as amicable as possible. I fear it will be the opposite. To not see this is sticking one's head in the sand.

Other links highlight some of the points stated above such as Obama's flagrant and serial lawlessness, the NY Times even admitting that the President's border enforcement policies are working, and the globalist element in the opposition to his policies.

In other news, "Bro-Fo" Omar raising funds for terrorist front group CAIR and Louis Farrakhan with another Day-Ending-in-"Y" entry on who is to blame for the attack on the Women's March. Also, one hum-dinger of a Huma-Danger as the Weiner is loose.

As the Jussie Smollet hoax is confirmed as such, several good links on how no one is distancing themselves from him and/or apologizing for helping to pimp the lie and an indictment of Palsi-Pelosi's refusal to condemn the America-hating and Joo-hating radicals in her midst. Other political news, Joe Bidet slimes his own country in Europe, Fauxca-Has-Been Warren gets heckled on her campaign trail of tears in Georgia, and a look at beyond "the Flight 93 election." Meanwhile, intrepid independent journalists help Kamala-Toe pick out a Lindsay Nelson horse blanket, and Klown-Kar Klobuchar pimps more gun grabbing in response to the shooting in Aurora, IL.

Several good links about the crashing and burning of the Russia Collusion hoax and traitor Andrew McCabe's admission of attempting a coup against candidate and then President Trump, plus a good overview of this madness from Victor Davis Hanson.

Overseas, Austria's chancellor has high praise for Trump's foreign policy, Venezuela is still in crisis, the Deep State State Dept. may be conducting sabotage-cum-shadow diplomacy in Iran with John Kerry and a look at Iran 40 years after the casbah got rocked.

Surprise! "Bro-Fo" Omar's district is the terrorist recruiting capital of the nation, Canada captures an ISIS animal who may have narrated beheading videos and Daniel Greenfield on another troubled young man who was just turning his life around... before raping and killing a teenager.

Domestically, as alluded to up top the swamp is swamping even Bush and Obama levels of pork, the money from Food Stamp fraud could build one big mother wall, and a look at even more Deep State sabotage of Trump vis a vis the failure to get 5-G telecom up and running. Also, I hope we are not going to resurrect Fannie and Freddie, further analysis of the Amazon-NYC HQ fiasco, the future of Social Security and unionized bureaucrats are at a 40-year low.

We need more gun laws, despite the fact that gun-grabbing Illinois already prohibited the Aurora shooter from possessing a firearm, the Vatican finally defrocks Theodore McCarrick, the pants have lost their crease with Brooks and the Green Marxists, real scientists/experts warn of even more forest fires if we do not ramp up logging and finally Colin Kaepernick successfully extorts millions from the NFL. Oh happy day.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue. Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

My inner Colombo smells a blackmail plot by the brother. Was girlfriend Sanchez in on it? She fits the type.

So Bezos went public with it, and then is now doubled down by blaming Trump and the Saudis.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

1. Yes, he should have vetoed and forced the override.

2. The poison pills alone were enough to justify that.

3. But the bigger issue is putting up with this massive omnibus shit in the first place. Sure, it's Nancy's style to say "Pass it to see what's in it." But that is at a very deep level precisely how the swamp lives. And it's got to stop. Trump has criticized it before; he needs to do something.

113 While I don't buy her conclusion, MacDonald has a point. Actually, two of them.

Trump did blow it on immigration the past two years. Sure, he had a Congress full of wimps and phoneys. But that's part of the deal; he really had to put Ryan and McConnell on the spot. And he didn't.

The other point is true. The use of an emergency declaration DOES amount to one more step away from ever getting back to the Constitution as founded. But the real question here is whether that is even possible.

I raised that yesterday in the Book thread. Interestingly, all those who responded said "No." That really is a question we have to face. (Personally, I don't know the answer.)

IIRC, Obama *doubled* the number of people on food stamps. Intentionally. He had people paid to sign up others for food stamps, they were commissioned based on how many they enrolled. Also, the instructions in Spanish handed out to people south of the border.

Trump needs to cut the number of enrolled in half just to get back to pre-Obama numbers.

No it's crystal clear. The President can veto anything he wants, no matter what the original vote is.

183 More Noos; today is Monday, February 18, 2019. On this day in 1972 the California Supreme Court in the case of People v. Anderson, (6 Cal.3d 62 invalidated the state's death penalty and commuted the sentences of all death row inmates to life imprisonment. This allowed Manson to get a life sentence instead of being cooked. He was eligible for parole after 7 years. When I was in CA in 1972 and running around with some of the Oakland cops their feeling was if they let him out and he comes here to Oakland he would be shot resisting arrest.

188 Time to make a way in advance prediction -- Jim Hood, Dem, will win the gubnership in MS this November. There are multiple reasons.

1. He's the only Dem in statewide office (as AG), winning handily for 16 years or so.

2. His main opponent, Tate Reeves, currently Lt. Gubner, has some issues from his frat days that Hood will beat him about the head with.

3. Fetal heartbeat. That's detectable at 6 weeks of pregnancy. MS tried in 2011 to pass a 'life begins at conception' constitutional amendment in 2011, and it failed miserably. The goal of both the amendment and this bill is to outlaw abortions in MS. Tate will not get the women vote. Hood will campaign on this issue.

This law will be blocked by a federal judge, and will probably wind up in the SC someday. I don't have a problem with Roe vs Wade being overturned, and returning the issue to the states to decide.

But Democrat gubner, here we come. Fuckity.

193 I agree with Pat Caddell about the possibility of a revolutionary moment. Constructs like property rights or capitalism can be changed incrementally, "progressively," for the simple reason that they are constructs--they have multiple parts that can be taken away one by one. But progressivism itself leads to totalitarian ends, which must be changed through revolution. So for example progressivism has led incrementally to intersectionality in the universities and the twin tyrannies of racism and sexism. This totalitarian state is absolute: it cannot be changed incrementally by its very nature. It can only be overthrown. In the same way, the progressive movement that is "Modern art" has led to a situation where no art is acceptable to our institutional overlords unless it exhibits absolute contempt for normal people. Again, the only way to change this totality is to overthrow it. Nor is it possible at this late date to rehabilitate English departments with their love of "theory." The only remedy is to quarantine "theory" and create new departments that permit students to be exposed to the old books and intellectual history without the poison of Postmodernism. That's revolution, and that's where we find ourselves now.

197 In any war you lose some battles. Trump is fighting with the Congressional Demofascists, the Republicans, the Chinese, the Mexicans and the billionaire funders of his political opponents. Lots more too, if you take a moment and consider.


We lost this spending fight to the economic interests supporting the Uniparty, who were threatening to undermine the support they are giving Trump on China. He decided he couldn't fight on both fronts and so he caved. If he'd closed the government, and it would have been his decision, the press would be on him 24/7, the stock market would have cratered, there might have been layoffs and serious talk of a recession, and the Uniparty would have tried to take Trump down. Instead, he lives to fight another day.

What most people fail to understand is that Democrats don't need a pretext for subversion. That is their sine qua non. Heather knows that and I'm surprised she is the purveyor of such ignorance.

It's certainly a consideration, but I'm not going to light my worried follicles on fire over it. Americans know we have a serious problem at the border and they want it fixed. And they will support his efforts. Conversely, Americans are not going to let some venom-dripping, control freak totalitarian leftist like Kamala Harris declare an emergency and strip away their gun rights. Or murder our cows and stop all flights due to global warming. Neither of which has much support, or near as much support from the American voters overall. Just my .02.

The pedo and crook Menedez from NJ, along with an idiot Deutsch-bag from Florida introduced a national measure to limit magazine rounds. They've also stuffed a few other constitutional subversions in there. They are working on another so-called "red flag" measure that is a guise for confiscation and the trampling of due process rights. Not to mention ending private sales of guns and creating a national registry. That's before we get to their gun ban bill that is the Clinton ban on steroids.

But yeah, declare a national emergency as a subversive device to undermine the constitution. I can think of few other things that would spark a national backlash against Democrats.

283 You really have to understand the mindset of many in Washington. In general, people want to get things done. They realize that takes compromise and often you have to eat things you don't want to get there. The problem is that many people sacrifice their base principles without ever moving the ball forward. Democrats do this well and while Republicans are playing tactically, they play the long game. With the media completely in their pocket, this is an easy game for Democrats to play. They still influence public opinion enough to seed the field to their advantage. That's why I say the media are the most despicable subversives who need to be first on the bonfire. Without them this would not be possible. As a result Republicans and in turn out country is put in a very bad position.

Republican border hawks and the President can refuse to support any new bill with that provision back in. And the Mayor approval already explicitly expires on September 30th... directly in the bill itself reads...

"Such consultations shall continue until September 30, 2019"

And for making the Rio Grande parks off limits, the DHS Secretary may be able to issue a waiver based on existing authority (she just did so at another location). Even so, I've looked at the locations listed and they seem fairly insignificant, literally only a couple thousand feet along the border.

"My point here is that if they believe that Donald Trump cannot fulfill the obligations of his office, then they have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment," Warren said during a press conference following a campaign rally in Las Vegas. "Their loyalty under law is not to him personally. It is to the Constitution of the United States and to the people of United States."

Taylor claimed that her primary residence was damaged in the flood and that she was staying in a rental property, the prosecutor's office said. Her home was not damaged, however, and she still lived there.

345 Unlike Ann Coulter, Angelo Codevilla is a serious person. Yet his suggestion for what the President should have done- work with anti-establishmentarians on both sides- is crazy person talk. There are no Democrats who could survive identification with the President outside very Republican parts of the country, and trying to purify the Republican Party nearly cost them the Senate thanks to Alabama. Steve Bannon was a visionary and determined, but ultimately a weak reed. And he is miles ahead of anyone who thinks rhey can peacefully reform Congress.

Now, if Codevilla claimed that Trump needs to be like Yelstin and give the Capitol a whiff of grapeshot, I'd be bang alongside him. Even then, President Trump has made the decision to resolve things peacefully, with a dramatically expanded conservative judiciary and his personal command of the executive. Whether this will be sufficient to stop the lawless coup against him, under which no election can be legitimate, remains to be seen.

On one end you receive free food, healthcare, and daily treats. Who wouldn’t want free stuff? Those on the “bouquet” end, dealing with the mess, would have a different opinion.

If socialism is so good, one would think people would be migrating to the states offering the most free stuff.

The major moving companies issue annual reports regarding migration.


United Van Lines reports New Jersey at #1 (66.8% outbound) followed by Illinois, Connecticut, and New York (61.5%). Atlas Van Lines also ranked New York 4th (61.0%). Do the outbound migrants feel they are at the bouquet end, and fed up with paying for the free stuff?

How to spot a hoax.

Well, one kind of hoax, anyway. I'm not a general hoax expert.

When the story is just too perfect, when it fits the stereotype that the perpetrator wants to believe, that's a big clue. Lots of people wanted it to be true that high school boys wearing MAGA hats were saying racist things and even looking a little violent and out of control. So a Native American says "I thought they were going to lynch those black people." Really? You thought those 16-year-olds were going to pull out some rope and wade into a group of black adults, and start dragging them out one-by-one, looking for a tree branch or a light pole?

But it would just be so cool if they were like that. I'll be they would be like that if they only had the chance. It's not too far-fetched that they could conceivably do that...

Contrary to the "Sky Is Falling" lunatics of the left, the earth is showing signs of improvement.

Over the last two decades, the Earth has seen an increase in foliage around the planet, measured in average leaf area per year on plants and trees. Data from NASA satellites shows that China and India are leading the increase in greening on land. The effect stems mainly from ambitious tree planting programs in China and intensive agriculture in both countries.


The world is literally a greener place than it was 20 years ago, and data from NASA satellites has revealed a counterintuitive source for much of this new foliage: China and India. A new study shows that the two emerging countries with the world’s biggest populations are leading the increase in greening on land. The effect stems mainly from ambitious tree planting programs in China and intensive agriculture in both countries.

The greening phenomenon was first detected using satellite data in the mid-1990s by Ranga Myneni of Boston University and colleagues, but they did not know whether human activity was one of its chief, direct causes. This new insight was made possible by a nearly 20-year-long data record from a NASA instrument orbiting the Earth on two satellites. It’s called the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, or MODIS, and its high-resolution data provides very accurate information, helping researchers work out details of what’s happening with Earth’s vegetation, down to the level of 500 meters, or about 1,600 feet, on the ground

Just what Americans need: A new social contract for America.

Fresh from saving New York City an imaginary $3 billion in tax credits offered to Amazon

to be used for imaginary improvements in New York's infrastructure while losing untold real future billions in tax revenues that Amazon's multi-thousands of direct and indirect jobs plus increasing property values would have generated, Boston University honors economics and international relations graduate Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-amn-N.Y.) is at it again.

She's taking her Green New Deal show on the road — to 15 cities in 50 states. With no polluting planes or cars or even farting cows or horses allowed, she's going to do this in under 12 years. Or else. Because the world will end. Or something.

Maybe when the know-it all Congress critter traipses off to Iowa she will see, lawn mowers, tractors, combines, boat motors, snowblowers and other combustion engines in use.

The pollution has to be really bad if China is up in arms. China closes Mt. Everest route due to trash.

Feb. 15 (UPI) -- China has closed the Tibetan entrance to Mount Everest indefinitely because of mounting garbage that's been left on the world's tallest mountain.

Chinese officials said although the entrance is closed, tourists can still visit the Rongpo monastery area at 16,400 feet above sea level. Only those with climber permits, however, will be allowed to go to the base camp about 600 feet higher, and beyond.

Meet Justin Koerner. Perhaps the soundest sleeping man in America.

Delaware musician Justin Koerner might just win an award for the world's soundest sleeper.

Koerner left a jam session early in Newark to nap in his Ford Escape as he had things to do early the next morning, reports the Delaware News Journal. His buddies kept playing inside, and Koerner left his Escape turned on as he crawled into the back seat to snooze.

His dreams were anything but sweet, as Koerner told the News Journal, "I had a weird dream that somebody sat on my head and that somebody jumped into the front seat of my car. It was all very surreal."

F*ck Frau St. Bernard Face. Go pound sand German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel won thunderous applause at the Munich Security Conference today with globalist comments supporting retaining the ‘Iran Deal’ put together by the Obama administration and for suggesting the United States keep its troops in Syria. The hypocrisy was astounding as the globalist elites in Europe called for America to continue to send its men and women into harms way as Germany cedes its energy security to Moscow with construction of the Nord Stream II pipeline and spends little on its own defense. European support for the ‘Iran Deal’ stems from its desire to reap financial profits from Tehran’s government and caring little about Iran’s export of terror and its often stated desire to destroy the Jewish State.

If I were POTUS for 48 hours, I would be out of NATO, the UN and Syria so fast.......

For the second time in five months, a couple has been arrested for having sex on a Florida sidewalk--this time in the vicinity of a children’s parade, police allege.

Fort Myers cops Sunday afternoon arrested Bernadette Colatarci, 47, and Phillip Daley, 58, for lewd and lascivious behavior.

As detailed in a police report, an off-duty cop first spotted the homeless duo having sex on a downtown sidewalk around 5 PM. At the time, the officer was driving home several children who had participated in the Edison Festival of Light Junior Parade (which included floats, marching bands, clowns, and a fun run).

Responding police found the wounded Allen in a nearby wooded area and transported him to a hospital where he died during surgery.

A Canadian youth hockey team forfeited the rest of its season this week following social media backlash and death threats after a video surfaced of players dancing to music from an indigenous electronic group led to accusations they were mocking indigenous culture.

An uproar ensued last month when a video showing players dancing to the song "Electric Pow Wow Drum" by electronic group A Tribe Called Red made the rounds on social media.

All in pursuit of shipping the crap to China on huge, smoke-bellowing ships, to be unloaded and pushed into a big pile of toxic waste by more smoke-bellowing equipment, right next to communities where little kids live. Well, "live."

51 Hey everybody.

Welp, I got myself a Roku Premiere. Hooked it up today and signed up for a number of services, including Sling TV.

Good news: I personally like it. Live TV channels are available via the services from CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox. Lots of other live-steaming channels available via Sling.

Bad news: numerous other channels, such as PBS and CW, *only* offer shows in individual episodes, with no live streaming available. Also, you can't channel-surf on a Roku *except* within Sling and another (weird) service called Pluto TV, which contains very few mainstream channels. (Pluto TV *does* have NewsmaxTV, interestingly enough.)

Sling offers my local NBC and Fox channels in live streaming, but not CBS, ABC, CW or PBS.

Anyway. I crunched the numbers and if we stick with the Roku, at least my family can save about $85 a month on cable. (CBS All Access is $5.99 a month and the Sling package I chose, with extras, is $40 a month.)

Thinking it would be worth it to just spend another $60, get a digital antenna and bribe one of my BILs to instal it on the roof. At least then me and my mom could channel-surf through the old fashioned live network channels, as well as Sling.

If the fashion industry were rational, most big designers would be straight. But they're rare in general, and they're practically non-existent in haute couture.

These guys mostly just design to make women as attractive as possible.

If the guy doing that is gay, then he's designing based on what a gay man sees as attractive in a woman.

That's why most women's clothing and accessories are so unattractive.
