Netflix Revives Early 80s Muppet Bomb "The Dark Crystal" As a Series Because There Are Literally No Ideas Left

I tried to find a non leftist news site to link here, but Google keeps those way down the search list now.

So here's NBC. Google pretty much forced my hand.

At some point in the near future we'll see the last actual New Thing the entertainment industry ever created. After that, it will just be reboots of old things.

Oh, and the press is now heckling Sarah Sanders:



Time to just cancel that. Let them eat silence.

Open thread.

14 Dark Crystal has had a pretty good cult following over the years. In terms of remakes, it is the most out there because there is nothing else like it. I can appreciate it for that at least as opposed to a Brady Bunch remake, Chips remake, etc.

35 I can only think of one reason why Trump would back down on the shutdown. Trump has more to lose by backing down than sticking it out.

Unless the one thing came to pass, that turns the shutdown into pure downside for Trump... and that would be if the GOP caucus informed the White House that they'd join with the Dems for a veto override.

Judges are never, ever a good bet. If there's anywhere left for them to advance they'll betray you in an instant, and even when they get to the SC there's a probability they'll shiv you in the ribs immediately.

I think we passed that point a few years ago. IMO, it's a result of the dumbing-down of skools and kollidges. Stunted imaginations from heads filled with indoctrination instead of being told how to think for themselves. Plus the insanity of Po-mo.

Before we get too far down the 'culture is just a retread' path- how many actually new stories are there or have ever been?

Most of them revolve around love. Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love. Some Problem. Resolved in some way.

The best stories are not usually all that original in general structure, they just put the story together in some new way that resonates or we like the way the characters are written and or acted.

That and all the restriction there now are on what the movie should 'say', who can star in it (black character with black actor etc.), no cultural appropriation, no xxxx Face actors or characters, no masculinity, limits on the enemies (no muslims).

And all sorts of other limitations placed upon the writers of new stuff.

So they revert to something that was saleable some time in the past but even that doesn't work well anymore because of those self same limits they demand be contained in even a reboot.

They've painted themselves into a corner where they can only produce crap that most ppl won't want to pay to watch. And when they do produce something that will sell, they are shut down because it doesn't have the limits imposed on other stuff. Like Gosnell was shut out of theaters just because.

I wonder if the media and movies will all implode at once. Many of them are connected to the same umbrella company and if enough of them die off, the whole edifice may crumble.

Maybe it'll be a rich guy whose poor brother and son move into his house on the beach. Or a couple of waitresses. Or a group of nerds. Whatever. The important, new thing is that the plots and jokes will revolve around getting sex.

It's fresh, it's new, and yes it's risky. But with something new there is always risk!

Somehow this subject came up today while I was paying for my purchase, and I had to know, who buys these cookies? Apparently these are a 'thing' with people planning bachelorette parties. The inference was that they only need the boy cookies if you know what I mean, nudge nudge wink wink.

The best stories are not usually all that original in general structure,
they just put the story together in some new way that resonates or we
like the way the characters are written and or acted.


I grok what you're saying. I have this conversation with B'Gal pretty regularly where she points out that reboots expose allegedly good stories to a new generation, which I can sort understand. Right up until I realize that if those young skulls full of mush had any sort of education, they'd have an appreciation of the true classics in literature, art and cinema.

209 More holiday shopping news, over the weekend I was in millennial hipster territory and of course I fit right in, being 29 and all, and what to my wondering eyes did appear but RUTH BADER GINSBERG SWAG.

Every little gift shop had multiple items featuring the notorious RBG on them. T-shirts with RBG pumping iron, knee sox with her face on the front, coffee mugs extolling RBG's choice of fortifying beverage. And it was pix of RBG from around 40 years ago, no joke.

I have been trying to think of which stories or movies I have watched in say the past 10 years were original.

John Wick- old fashioned revenge flick which most of those can be looked at as a Count of Monte Cristo.

Tolkien is probably the closest with the anti-quest type of thing. It was not to find the magical macguffin, but rather to destroy it.

I don't know about that but he's putting in a good effort to solve some problems.

Posted by: freaked at December 18, 2018 07:26 PM (UdKB7)

What I meant (should have clarified), is I thought Trump would solve our problems because he clearly does not go gentle into that Deep State night, and he would actually FIGHT, instead of GWB, etc doing Lib-Lite with more government assistance shit like the prescription drug plan and 'compassionate conservatism' and getting slagged by the Obamas, only to offer Mooshelle gum on a regular basis.

I mean, who would be super nice to those assholes? They took a nice shit on the Constitution, and made good inroads in destroying the greatest nation ever to grace this planet. But no, GWB has to 'show he is a better man' and be friendly. YOU DO NOT MAKE FRIENDS WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE BETRAYED THIS COUNTRY. Period.


So I thought with Trumps election, we'd have a juggernaut to get some stuff done for the republic, instead of seeing it get ratcheted back to more liberalism. But I didn't count on the perfidy and depth of the Deep State entrenchment. It actually makes me unutterably sad.

239 I think all the writers in H'Wood have been poisoned by Trump Derangement Syndrome and are unable to get their creative juices flowing.

That and all the restriction there now are on what the movie should 'say', who can star in it (black character with black actor etc.), no cultural appropriation, no xxxx Face actors or characters, no masculinity, limits on the enemies (no muslims).

And all sorts of other limitations placed upon the writers of new stuff.

So they revert to something that was saleable some time in the past but even that doesn't work well anymore because of those self same limits they demand be contained in even a reboot.

They've painted themselves into a corner where they can only produce crap that most ppl won't want to pay to watch. And when they do produce something that will sell, they are shut down because it doesn't have the limits imposed on other stuff. Like Gosnell was shut out of theaters just because.

I wonder if the media and movies will all implode at once. Many of them are connected to the same umbrella company and if enough of them die off, the whole edifice may crumble.


Posted by: jakee308 at December 18, 2018 07:41 PM


Partly. A lot of it has to do with how hollywood operates now. Good writing is not a priority anymore. Hollywood just doesn't have the patience for the time it can take to perfect a script. Nor does it want to allocate it the required budget.Even if there's a screenplay that has already had years of work put into it and should be worth it's weight in gold, they pass it on in an act of nepotism to a hack for "improvement". He gets the credit, a large chunk of the bucks and ensures that it has some "urban" appeal, lots of shiny things and planty of added scenes that the director can use for shaky cam action and insipid dialogue. It can still be done and sometimes is... but it's rare. The discipline is gone.

Exactly this! I thought, ok we'll have a few days or weeks of lamentations and then we can get on with the transfer of power the way it's been done for over 200 years.

This treasonous coup, with the deep state in the government, the media, and most of the republicans themselves, well it just never occurred to me that Trump, his family, and his administration would be criminalized the way they have been.

254 The Deep State is rubbing our faces in it now.

They're saying there's nothing we can do because they can rally the bureaucrats which is what millions of willing minions to do their bidding and all under cover of law?

They've revealed that it's not the Dems and Media that are the problem with the country and countering them won't help. The force we are up against is infested in the very fabric of the Government.

They've thrown down the gauntlet and declared to us the only way to take the country back will be to eliminate the government on a wholesale basis.

Since that's unlikely at this point there is no further point in struggling against what we now know are the real rule breakers and deal makers.

The only other option is succession.

Kick Ass: Judge Invalidates New York's Nunchuck Ban on 2nd Amendment Right-to-Self-Defense Grounds

The judge invalidated the whole of the law because she found one part of it unconstitutional and ruled that part could not be severed from the rest of the law. So it all had to fall together.

The part she objected to was New York's declaration that even having nunchucks in your own home was illegal. You couldn't even have them in a locker at a martial arts studio, I guess.

That doesn't seem to invalidate less absurd nunchuck laws in other states, which may only ban people from carrying them.

But -- shouldn't it? If you have a right to self-defense, why can't you carry nunchucks?

Ah well. One cat-stance step at a time.

1974 New York state ban on nunchucks that was put into place over fears that youth inspired by martial arts movies would create widespread mayhem is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment, a federal court has ruled.

Judge Pamela Chen issued her ruling Friday in a Brooklyn federal court on the martial arts weapon made famous by Bruce Lee.

The plaintiff, James Maloney, started his legal quest after being charged with possession of nunchucks in his home in 2000. He initially filed a complaint in 2003, and appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court when the case went against him. The Supreme Court in 2010 remanded the case back down to be reconsidered in light of a Second Amendment decision it had made in another case, and Maloney filed an amended complaint later that year.

Maloney had been focused on getting the part of the law overturned that banned nunchucks, two rigid rods connected at one end by a chain or rope, even in private homes.

In her ruling, Chen said the court couldn't simply take that part out, and ruled that the state's law as it pertained to possessing nunchuks as well as to manufacturing, transporting or disposing of them was in violation of the Second Amendment.

Nonserverability is a bona fide doctrine of constitutional analysis, until we come to Obamacare, and then, Who Cares.

128 Actually, if you wanted to argue that the Second Amendment protects an M-16 but doesn't protect nunchucks, I'd probably buy it. The courts have ruled that the Second Amendment protects the common weapons of war, and nunchucks are no longer common weapons of war.

It's mind-boggling to me that the most common weapon of soldiers in the modern world, an assault rifle, is banned due to being "full-auto" (in quotes because not only actual full auto but 3-round-burst and 2-round-burst are considered "full-auto" and banned).

The ban on short-barreled shotguns from 1934 was passed on the idea that such a shotgun is not used by soldiers. Nobody introduced evidence of their use as "trench guns" in World War I or else perhaps that ban wouldn't have passed at that time.

Of course a ban on nunchucks is just stupid and should be overturned on that basis, even if the Second Amendment didn't apply.

I would argue that a hypothetical "Doomsday Machine" that would destroy all life on Earth is not protected by the Second Amendment. It's certainly not a common weapon of war. But back in the 1700s it wasn't rare for people to own cannons, the "weapons of mass destruction" of their day, and nobody questioned that it was covered by the Second Amendment.

139 Sorry to post on an unrelated thread, but I listened a little to Rush this AM, and he played a Katherine Herridge report that feels different than the post here this AM. He said he didn't want to sentence an innocent man or something, and made a comment about Flynn being charged under the Logan act, "you mean the act no one gets charged for". Herridge on an update on break said that the judge was also harsh on Flynn too. So I am utterly confused.
I thought electing Trump would solve our problems; it hasn't, it's just shown how pervasive and all powerful the Deep State is, and frankly, if Flynn doesn't have a chance, who does?

212 "Judge Sullivan just ordered Flynn to turn over his passport and stay within 50 miles of DC unless he gets permission to leave.

He is really unhappy with the plea deal."

Something wrong here - he was unhappy with the plead deal - he wanted Flynn to opt out of it, he accused him of treason and acted like he was ready to put him away for life or something for agreeing to it. Now he adds pressure with a local custody parameter - he's either an odd old coot, or he really thinks something is wrong about this whole thing and he hates that Flynn is caving to the prosecutor's blackmail.

Well, something is very wrong with this whole thing as the text message and other documents have shown. I don't know if that's what this is all about, if Sullivan knows all of it or not, but he is angry as hell about something.

Posted by: freaked at December 18, 2018 07:26 PM (UdKB7)

What I meant (should have clarified), is I thought Trump would solve our problems because he clearly does not go gentle into that Deep State night, and he would actually FIGHT, instead of GWB, etc doing Lib-Lite with more government assistance shit like the prescription drug plan and 'compassionate conservatism' and getting slagged by the Obamas, only to offer Mooshelle gum on a regular basis.

I mean, who would be super nice to those assholes? They took a nice shit on the Constitution, and made good inroads in destroying the greatest nation ever to grace this planet. But no, GWB has to 'show he is a better man' and be friendly. YOU DO NOT MAKE FRIENDS WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE BETRAYED THIS COUNTRY. Period.


So I thought with Trumps election, we'd have a juggernaut to get some stuff done for the republic, instead of seeing it get ratcheted back to more liberalism. But I didn't count on the perfidy and depth of the Deep State entrenchment. It actually makes me unutterably sad.

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves, Forced Out Due to Sexual Harassment Allegations, Will Not Receive His $120 Million Severance Package

He had a nasty habit and it wound up being super-expensive.



Les Moonves, the shamed ex-CEO of CBS, will not get his $120 million severance package, CBS announced late Monday, citing his failure to "cooperate fully" with an internal investigation of allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

...

"With regard to Mr. Moonves, we have determined that there are grounds to terminate for cause, including his willful and material misfeasance, violation of Company policies and breach of his employment contract, as well as his willful failure to cooperate fully with the Company’s investigation. Mr. Moonves will not receive any severance payment from the Company," the statement said.

...

His golden parachute looked even more imperiled in late November when The New York Times posted a lengthy story describing how he allegedly forced oral sex on a young actress years ago and then worked with her down-and-out agent to get her roles to keep her quiet after the #MeToo movement exploded.

Under his employment contract, the network would not have to pay Moonves severance if the investigation found evidence that he did not tell the full truth about whether he tried to pay off an accuser with job offers and then tried to hide it.

Moonves' lawyer called the decision a sham and suggested that CBS was defaming Moonves, possibly previewing a coming lawsuit.

I keep telling you guys: We need to listen more to our Media Elite and aspire to be more like them.

19 "Under his employment contract, the network would not have to pay Moonves severance if the investigation found evidence that he did not tell the full truth about whether he tried to pay off an accuser with job offers and then tried to hide it."

Is it common to have an "investigation revealed that you tried to hide job offer bribes to accusers" clause in an employment contract? That seems oddly specific. I don't think there's one in mine. I could be wrong. Maybe it's boilerplate.

Probably depends on the contract. Didn't Harvey basically have a "as long as you pay for your sexual assault hush money yourself, it's all good," line in his contract? If Moonves didn't I can see him not getting the full amount. Probably will settle for a pretty penny though.

severance if the investigation found evidence that he did not tell the full truth about whether he tried to pay off an accuser with job offers
and then tried to hide it.

169 I had a severance package of 1 year's salary if I was let go less than a year after being hired. I demanded that since I moved cross country for the job. The company started layoffs about 6 months in, and I suspect that clause is what saved my job. By the end of the year thing were turning around for the company and the layoffs ended.

Martha McSally Appointed to Complete John McCain's Term, Taking Over from the Retiring John Kyl

So it's done now.

Ben Domenech asks an important question: Given that this Establishment Blank lost to a troop-hating, terrorist-supporting, tutu-wearing, Arizona-trashing feminist freak, what are her chances of actually holding the seat?

Under Arizona law, Ducey's appointment of McSally means she is essentially tasked with filling out a sequence of two year terms. She will have to run for re-election in 2020, and run again in 2022. The demands of running non-stop are hard enough when you’re talking about a House seat. In this case, McSally will have to do something she hasn’t done before -- win statewide -- in back to back election cycles.

On paper, McSally looks like an ideal candidate. She has a Harvard degree, a lengthy record of military service, and an ideologically moderate record in Congress. But as a campaigner, she has much to prove. Her first foray into politics was a loss in a special election nomination fight (to Federalist contributor Jesse Kelly); she then lost a general election campaign for the same seat by less than 1 percent; she then won the district in the following election after a recount by 167 votes. McSally has won only one election by a significant margin, and her loss to Kyrsten Sinema in 2018's Senate election was by less than 3 percent of the vote. The historical trend is clear: win or lose, it's usually very close.

I think President Trump can win it during re-election. But it's not the same state it was: the failure of California has puked a lot of liberalism over the rest of the country. And that solution needs a much sterner remedy than democracy can manage.

McSally though ran a shitty campaign, supposedly an out of state firm ran her campaign and they're known as fuck ups, but I don't think she's in a huge danger of losing as an incumbent.

But McSally doesn't deserve the seat, that's for sure.

AZ does have a serious McCain problem, in terms of its state GOP. That surely will start to fade. But a state on the friggin' border, facing the lawlessness directly, that can elect a stupid freak like Synema - while simultaneously re-electing a GOP governor - well, one does start to wonder what the point is.


Yeah yeah the strategic fall-back to a constitutional system, you don't challenge the judiciary's lawlessness or usurpation of vast powers contrary to the constitution, you just staff it with "your" people and hope for the best.

Throw in voter fraud in an election that shouldn't have been close on paper and you have the makings of a McSalley loss.

It's interesting that the biggest impediment isn't whether they can, it's whether the Japanese people will go along with it. The only reason not to is that flattops may be becoming obsolete, especially for Japan, which is, after all, a series of large, unsinkable aircraft carriers.

184 In Minnesota Michelle Bachmann would win reelection every time in her district, but it was always a tough battle with tens of millions spent on both sides. Bachmann decided to pack it in, and Tom Emmer a former governor candidate, stepped up and wins easily every time.

It could be the same with McSally. She could be just enough to energize the opposition to defeat her, and not worth all of the money and headaches.

Rot will kill plywood in a matter of years. But professionals tread carefully across the roof on the initial pass. They know the danger.

Every roofing crew I've seen in the past five years is 100% south of the border. One hundred and twenty pound guys. Not likely to tear through both the shingles, the roofing felt, rotted plywood, fiberglass insulation, then through a plaster/drywall ceiling.

So I'm gonna sprinkle a little bit of skepticism on the story. Act accordingly, or ignore. I'm okay with either.

266 Weasels are a member of the Mustelidae family, which includes weasels, badgers, otters, martens, mink, and wolverines, and others.

They are typically small animals with short legs, short, round ears, and thick fur. Most mustelids are solitary, nocturnal animals, and are active year-round. Other than the sea otter, they have anal scent glands that produce a strong-smelling secretion the animals use for sexual signaling and for marking their territory.

IOW, Mustelidae are exemplars of The Moron Lifestyle(tm).

I think Mormons have a wild hair about fundamentalist Christians trying to save them. our church supported some missionaries in Salt Lake. when their children went out into the neighborhood to play, all the Mormon kids would get called inside. Long way to go to say I think they equate evangelical Christians w/hard core right wing-ism. Listen to Mittens: he thinks there's this mystical 3rd way. IOW, collaboration w/Statists.

White House Suggests There's a Lot of Wiggle Room in $5 Billion Demand for Wall

Blink.

Eh, what a cuck.

This isn't all on Trump, obviously. The Establishment Party in Power still hasn't gotten it through its head that we are tired of their barely-disguised open borders policy and we're not going to accept their bullshit about "virtual fences" any longer.


"We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion that we'll work with Congress," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Fox News on Tuesday morning. She added that the Trump administration could support $1.6 billion in border security funding proposed by Senate Democrats, as long as it can "couple that with other funding resources" to get to $5 billion.

She added that "at the end of the day, we don't want to shut down the government. We want to shut down the border." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have cast the potential lapse in funding as the "Trump shutdown." When Pelosi goaded Trump into an Oval Office fracas last week, the characterization appeared to irritate the president.

I don't know what alternate funding sources she means. I've heard claims that Trump could direct the military to use its funds for the wall, but that sounds completely wrong.

Still, Trump himself has not weighed in Tuesday on how much money he would accept. As always, a comment or tweet from the president could trample on the message administration officials try to send.

In proposing $1.6 billion in border security funding, Schumer has said it would go to building new or repairing existing fences, rather than the wall as Trump has proposed it. The White House appears to want to claim that funding as "wall" money to promote a victory.

But maybe this is the alternate source of funding they mean: Some guy calculated that if each of Trump's 63 million voters donated $80 each, they'd have the five billion needed for the wall.

But then, that's not the full wall; that would be the $5 billion sought this year for it.

Still -- it's something.

I'd buy that for eighty dollars.

And spare me with the 4D Chess BS. Anyone trying to say "he'll just do it X way now" ignore that he's wasted two years by not doing it X way already.

His presidency is effectively over without a meaningful wall. The half-assed partial fence they're currently building is not what won him the election.

59 Ace, there many ways to interpret this. One, Trump does this to spike the drama and evoke an outcry from his supporters, thus setting up a loyalty circle when he agrees with them. Two, he is actually setting up Nanzi and Chuckie to start dealing and discussing a deal which upsets their base. Three, he is fucking with Nanzi's head while she is trying to become the next speaker.

65 We had a two year window to actually slow down immigration, and the GOPe was too stupid to do it. Look at the results from this year's election: Florida is on the edge of going blue, Arizona went blue, Colorado is gone, Virginia is gone. Wisconsin and Michigan went back to supporting Dems. It's another 40 - 60 years in the desert, and I'm guessing it's a permanent decline for the country. Think Britain after WWII -- they dumped Churchill and went into a slow, permanent decline.

To be honest, as much as I hate the way our borders are dealt with I am highly unlikely to be directly impacted. There just aren't that many illegals running around in my hood.

If those who have to live with this shit, and in California I mean that literally, won't support using tax dollars to protect their homes and they want to live with the gangs, the drugs, the disease and poverty that it brings to their neighborhoods then have at it.

But I'm not setting up a second tax system to pay for stuff the government already gets plenty of my money for.

Here's another idea: print on everyone's tax return: "I demand that 100% of my tax dollars go toward the construction of an effective wall on the U.S.-Mexico border."

With a space for a signature. The commie fag cucks that are opposed to the wall can simply leave that space blank. But all the ones that are signed effectively become a taxpayer petition to build the wall.

147 The problem with the borders is not the wall (or lack thereof) but with the utter lack of interior enforcement and the siding of our courts with the invaders.

A wall is totally meaningless without interior enforcement and without the ability to seriously militarize the area. Of course, if we could militarize the border area (as a national border with a country that has been committing acts of war against us for decades) then we wouldn't need a physical wall, anyway.

I don't care much for the wall. I care only about interior enforcement and having our border area be treated like the serious border that it is, with aliens and people on the other side having NO RIGHTS, at all. That is how things are supposed to be with the whole nation-state concept.

Make it private investment, add a 15% fee to all cash sent back to Mexico to pay it off, with a high interest rate and a big profit for the investors!

Government doesn't have to pay a penny. And people will invest because they will get a pre-determined profit that is essentially backed by the Fed Gov.


Don't want the money transfer fee too high, or the illegals will find a way around it.

156 The GOP's big donors don't want a wall.
That became clear in 2016 when Trump went to the extreme with his "build the wall" #1 campaign pledge and not one of them budged an inch on the issue. I had (stupidly) assumed that Trump was there to define the extremes, and one of them (Walker, Cruz) would then swoop in with something less extreme and win the nomination.

Nope. No compromise, no movement, just sticking with open borders. It was a revelation for me, to see no one move despite immigration control polling at ~75% (more limits, etc.).

Yeah.

I think the biggest single change that would turn our whole immigration situation around immediately would be to lower the amount of due process needed to deport someone.

The left does an amazing job at clogging up immigration courts.

There are two immigration cases involving Chinese nationals that could be overturned that would change that in a second. I forget the case names though.

Posted by: Harry Paratestes at December 18, 2018 04:06 PM (GBteo)

170 It's simple. Trump's Signature Promise is building the Wall. If he builds it, or it's very well into the process of being built--he get's re-elected. If he doesn't, the very people who prevented it from being built will run around crowing that he failed to build the Wall overdo it so much that the people will see that Trump was sincere--but that everyone else was not.
And he still get's re-elected.

179 Here's the deal: I've never supported the idea of the wall (though I voted for Trump). I have reasons for this, but they're not important, unless anyone cares to hear them.

But, I want that wall built, hasta pronto - and the reason is that the voters who won the election by and large voted for Trump because they damned well DID want that wall.

I am SO sick and tired of our government flatly ignoring the will of the American people. I've had it up to here.^^^

If the wall is possible to build (it is), does not violate the Constitution (it doesn't), and can be paid for (it can), then these people need to suck it up and do their damned jobs whether they like it or not.

Maybe it's just me but when he joined Van Halen, the band changed and not for the better. "Why Can't This Be Love" and "Dreams" are not rock and roll. They're easy listening turned up.

If you like easy listening, fine. I let folks like what they want to like. But watching a front line rock band turn into something weak and limp just irritates me.

I know, it's an old story. Happened to Queensryche, to Kenny Loggins, Phil Collins and an infinite number of bands.

There you go! Make "gifts to the USA" a 100% Federal tax credit. Then set up a "Border Wall Fund" to receive such "gifts" from taxpayers. All taxpayers who want a wall simply calculate their tax owing, and make a gift of that amount to the Border Wall Fund. And wind up getting a hefty tax refund, to offset the cost of the gift.

I think the problem is the audience and the market is made up of a million pieces. What I mean is, back when radio was king, they cherry-picked the most commercial songs and that's what listeners got--and out of those songs, some songs became hits that everybody knows. Now you can get literally all kinds of music, but it's tougher for anything to make a dent in the public consciousness.

Anything not covered by appropriation from Congress would fall instantly as an Anti-Deficiency Act violation.


The alternative there is to "reprogram" appropriated funds. Been a while, not sure exactly what the limits on that are, or whether congressional approval/acquiescence is required, or at what level (used to be funding below a certain number could be reprogrammed, within activities covered by the same appropriations bill, with just notification).


Beyond those almost certain game-stoppers, there's the fact that (like most of Trump's accomplishments so far) any project done through fiat could be stopped within 15 seconds by the next president. And though such concepts really do seem completely quaint and irrelevant now, it would stink of illegitimacy (major political issue where a president cannot get Congress to agree, so he does it anyway), which would make ending/reversing it later politically much easier.

The failure of the last two years, IMHO is ALL on the GOP. Trump has done incredibly good things both from a policy standpoint via the EO and of course tax reform, and at least Gorsuch, as well as the intangible of overturning the tables of the moneychangers in the DC temple and exposing the corruption for all to see. That hopefully starts the process that changes things. By however that happens.

Look, the Dems were willing to LOSE THEIR MAJORITY to try and socialize healthcare, figuring once people got free shit it would never be undone -- and they were absolutely right. Unlike the GOPe, the Dems are committed to moving the country left.

To be honest, as much as I hate the way our borders are dealt with I am highly unlikely to be directly impacted. There just aren't that many illegals running around in my hood.

If those who have to live with this shit, and in California I mean that literally, won't support using tax dollars to protect their homes and they want to live with the gangs, the drugs, the disease and poverty that it brings to their neighborhoods then have at it.

But I'm not setting up a second tax system to pay for stuff the government already gets plenty of my money for.

And sell some gifts that I got

As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me son it's time to tell the truth
She broke down and I broke down
'Cause I was tired of lying
Driving home to her apartment
For the moment we're alone
She's alone
I'm alone

366 Visa over-stays are a serious issue, but not the biggest one - and there *is no* "biggest one". They're all important, all easily addressed, progress on all would be very synergistic. Border barriers address completely different problems not involved with visa violations.


And "internal enforcement" doesn't even address everything. Barring a level of enforcement that is unlikely to inconceivable, *even magically assuming* "sanctuary" lawlessness is eliminated (um, it's expanding).


But observing even this crowd discuss the topic perfectly illustrates exactly how we got here. Doesn't affect me directly/tomorrow (this is behind many ills, including the continuation of the O-care disaster). Oh, I'll take this vs. that (this and that BOTH are needed, and easily accomplished if the effort were made).


And pooh-poohing the darkest forecasts on this situation ignores reality. Last month was the record for illegal migrant families exploiting what is essentially a fake-asylum Golden Ticket to illegal migration. The "Trump effect" disappeared from general illegal cross-border activity months ago. There will be no asylum law fix (there MIGHT be a judicial fix for the absurd ruling blocking implementation of Trump's emergency regulatory fix). There will be no real barrier where there isn't already. Mexico clearly got their USMCA without being forced to make a deal on illegal mass migration.

374 >>The irony burns. Once you have the problem, it becomes immensely more difficult to fix it. Those illegals and their citizen offspring, become a voting base that brings in more of them. So, Jack, go ahead and keep dreaming that this isn't going to effect you. And don't cry when they vote to raise your taxes. But, hey, it's not your problem.

Don't get burned. You still haven't answered why I should pay a premium to get what the very generous amount of money I already give to DC doesn't get me.

Or course it's a problem that affects all of us and I said I wanted them to deal with it. They've only had 50 fucking years. But no, the answer is not for me to pay more while others continue not to pay even basic taxes but are content to live under the umbrella of safety and services that those of us who do pay taxes already pay for.

If you want to fund the wall on your own, have at it. Maybe next you can chip in a few dollars to pay for the other things you want your tax dollars to be used for but aren't. We could make a list.

That's not irony. That's stupidity.

I definitely think his heart is in the right place, but he just never seems to have a plan and expects everyone to bend to his will. It's just not going to happen.

But obviously I blame GOP leadership, but anyone should have seen that a mile away. The entire campaign the GOP leadership was trying to get Hillary elected.

Trump should have said first 100 days I get my wall or you GOPe whores don't get your corporate tax cuts.
Posted by: Blago at December 18, 2018 04:25 PM (UfkIY)


For a guy allegedly with no plan, look what he did. His dismantling of dozens or hundreds of bureaucratic regs alone is golden.

He's no dope and his plan was border security, national security and setting the economic engine free from the bureaucratic tyranny.

He was sabotaged by the GOP as well as the Deep Staters and even big billionaires and Wall Street intentionally taking it in the shorts to screw the economy.

What we HAVE is a kelptocracy. If it takes an Emperor to resolve that, if it takes Purge Night to resolve that, I'll take it over this continued one-party rule. Let my tyrants be open tyrants, who rule by open force and let us choose sides and fight, win or die.

394 344 Opeth put out a great album called Damnation. This is what got me into the band. Windowpane is one of the best songs in the past 20 years--and 99% of people who like rock music have never even heard it.

I think Still Life might just be the best metal album of the past 30 years. Blackwater Park is up there too.

Damnation is good, but being mellowed out all the way through it's an outlier during that period of their career.

The tax cut was nice as well (but bungled somewhat as a giveaway to the MegaCorps) should have been bigger and targeted to small business and individuals instead of a temporary cut for us but a permanent cut for Google and Facebook.

The ironic thing is that the decrease in watching the NFL, and the decrease in attendance at games, will eventually mean the salary cap will peak, and then decrease. Ratings are still down around 20% from 2 years ago, and many stadiums are half-empty or worse, with a quarter of the regular season to go.

All the SJW performers are boycotting this year's halftime, because of "kneeling".

Thus, accelerating the time when the players will lose money.

488 Trump can't get funding for the wall unless he has 10 Democrats in the Senate to vote for it. It's that simple. And Schumer is only interested in doing whatever it takes to refuse anything Trump wants that might take a single illegal out of the potential voting pool for Democrats.

OAN has been running a video of Schumer on the Senate floor back when he voted for building a wall and curtailing illegal immigration going on and on about how we MUST have border security through a wall and other means, and we must have merit based immigration. He sounds right of Trump in the video. NO one else is running that clip as far as I know, including Tucker, etc.

Once the House ends this session, Trump will not only have the Senate Dems to fight, but he'll have a House that will refuse to fund virtually anything he requests, will not produce a budget, and will simply use CR as political weapons.

I"m not sure why everyone is blaming the GOP for this, other than possibly McConnell for not changing Senate rules to allow for a simple majority. The entire current GOP could vote to fund the wall , and just 1 Democrat in the Senate says no, then it's dead.

The whole point is that it was, is and will always be lip service. Any money set aside to build it will go elsewhere. But, great, give them $80.

531 OAN has been running a video of Schumer on the Senate floor back when he voted for building a wall and curtailing illegal immigration going on and on about how we MUST have border security through a wall and other means, and we must have merit based immigration. He sounds right of Trump in the video. NO one else is running that clip as far as I know, including Tucker, etc.

Once the House ends this session, Trump will not only have the Senate Dems to fight, but he'll have a House that will refuse to fund virtually anything he requests, will not produce a budget, and will simply use CR as political weapons.

I"m not sure why everyone is blaming the GOP for this, other than possibly McConnell for not changing Senate rules to allow for a simple majority. The entire current GOP could vote to fund the wall , and just 1 Democrat in the Senate says no, then it's dead.

On the package stealing racket, my son is a young cop. The town was getting hit by package thefts so he and a couple of others really focused and caught one. They were then actually able to "turn" that guy, set up a little sting operation, and catch the whole crew of several people.

567 As I noted above, I think there would be serious legal and political and practical issues with trying to use some ill-defined national security authority to build effective barriers, with either appropriated or privately-donated funds. Not so sure about the private one - I think WWII war bonds went into the general treasury funds (as you can still donate via the tax form if you like).


And as I said since last year, one thing neither the administration nor Hill GOP has done is to "politicize" the issue the way it should be. In a way that raises its profile even more and makes votes important for incumbents (both parties). The way all big issues were always handled, until 2009 when most big votes disappeared and CRs replaced regular appropriations.


Conway slipped in one interview immediately after the March CR debacle and said Trump had been "blind-sided" by the CR lacking his key immigration items, esp. border barrier. It's plausible, though unimaginable at the same time. The legislative affairs shop could have blind-sided him and the senior staff, though how anyone from that office could be at their jobs the next day is beyond my comprehension (Trump's handling of personnel, at least on the "bye bye" side, is excellent, and business-like).


In any case there was no sense of urgency, no serious political operation (which would include primarying GOP types) surrounding this central issue that made Trump president. And now? Barring some black swans (a whole flock), as I've been saying, no real action on urgent migration issues until 2021 at the earliest.

This woman wound up as a personal assistant to Jeffrey Epstien. You know what that means.

I see this article as a limited hang-out exercise. Trying to get ahead of some upcoming news.

"Open and thoughtful, Engelhardt unspools a life story that took root in a strict German immigrant household and blossomed into a Zelig-esque series of adventures as she attempted to break into modeling: partying with Iman, jet-setting with Adnan Khashoggi, dining with Stephen King, working as a personal assistant to Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire financier later convicted for soliciting an underage girl. Following her time with Allen, she went on to become a platonic muse to Federico Fellini during the auteur's late-life journeys in Rome and Tulum, Mexico, then spent years tending to egos as a hostess in the executive dining room at Paramount before landing her current gig, working as an assistant for producer Bob Evans. What's made her attractive to these powerful men, both personally and professionally, she posits, is in part what Allen appreciated in the first place: "I was pretty enough, I was smart enough, I was nonconfrontational, I was non-judgmental, I was discreet, and nothing shocks me."

A few years ago, several of us in my building had packages stolen over a few week period. We also had video of the package thief. It was the same kid. He seemed to be following the delivery truck.

My landlord showed the video the cops.

They said they'd "look in to it."

Never heard anything further.

75 The thieves certainly do deserve to be arrested, but the cops won't do it.

As the guy says in the video, he took a videotape of the first porch thief to the cops. You can see the woman on the tape, clearly stealing the package from his front porch, but the cops refused to do anything. Said it wasn't worth their time.

The thieves know this, and they take advantage of it. They also know that most state's laws don't let people use much force against property thieves. So property owners are left with no real remedy when people come onto their land to steal their stuff. They can't (legally) shoot the thieves, even if they catch them in the act, and if they videotape the thieves in the act, the cops won't do anything about it.

77 Thanks to California's Proposition 47, which passed in 2016 and is now in the running for Worst Statewide Proposition Ever Passed in the United States, thieves and criminals in California basically get no punishment whatsoever, even if they get caught red-handed and are convicted. Prop 47 states that if a thief only ends up stealing something valued (in sum) $1250 or less, then the "punishment" is at maximum a small fine and a warning, with ZERO jail time. The judge has no discretion in the matter -- state law states that theft under $1250 is a minor misdemeanor, the equivalent of a parking ticket or jaywalking.

The result, at least in the Bay Area (and probably all over California) is an explosion of "petty" crimes, since not only do thieves know there is no downside as getting caught leads to no punishment, but also that the same thieves get caught, get fined, steal again, get caught, get fined, steal again, get caught, get fined, etc. ad nauseam. All it takes is a few shameless criminals now to create a nonstop crime wave.

The stories around here would boggle your mind. One guy in SF has been caught red-handed and arrested and convicted of auto burglary (breaking into cars) SEVENTEEN TIMES in 2018 so far, and each time he gets a fine and is let go -- no jail time! And within hours he breaks in to another car. He's been caught 17 times, but he's probably robbed hundreds of cars, taking into account all the times he wasn't caught. And since each theft is under $1250 in value, the cops and prosecutors have no power to punish him or constrain him in any way. Oh, and did I mention that HE NEVER PAYS HIS FINES? They just keep piling up, and there's no mechanism for punishing him for nonpayment either.

And he's just one guy -- San Francisco and every other city has countless other petty criminals with similar stories.

Citizen vigilanteism will soon escalate beyond glitter bombs, I predict.

I seriously think that's what it is.

It takes 10 minutes and minimal effort to give someone a ticket for failure to come to a complete stop at a stop sign, and yields the town $150 or whatever in ticket revenue.

Tracking down package thieves? That would take more time and probably not yield any revenue at all.

So the cops focus on bothering people going to work and trying to beat traffic and not on the people stealing packages from those people while they're at work.

Posted by: rickb223 at December 18, 2018 03:11 PM (xzezz)

===========

We had a package on our porch for 3 days and it was still there when we got back home yesterday.

I was very pleasantly surprised.

115 "Our delivery chimps can't be bothered to ring the doorbell, even when it's raining (we have no covering on our porch, so packages get soaked). Sometimes they don't even make it up all five of the stairs to our door."


Things like this are why I do not jump on the "have everything delivered" bandwagon.

116 I worry about porch pirates, 'cause my lazy ass has my groceries delivered. If they come - I'll be eating out of cans, jars and the freezer. And I'll probably rig the next one to catch fire.

I guarantee you this glitter bomb in CA will get someone sued at some point.

People are just going to start shooting and when the cops ask, "I was in fear for my life, I want my lawyer."

I think stealing firearms carry a big kicker.

But like Ricky talks about on trailer park boys -- as long as it's "Theft under $1000," the cops don't care.

So if you're criminally minded... why risk jail time by doing one big, expensive, and potentially risky theft, when you can do a bunch of small ones and no one will ever look in to it?

You don't injure criminals.
But always warn them. And make sure you tell the police you warned them BECAUSE YOU WERE SCARED FOR YOUR LIFE.

And you thought the criminal had a knife or a gun or was going to use it. Make sure you say that.

I've never had it happen, but I know someone in the delivery business in my state (AZ) and it's a very big issue in even upscale neighborhoods.

I'm sure police could stop it if they took it seriously, but they won't.

I bet more than half of police activity is traffic violations.

Posted by: Blago at December 18, 2018 03:17 PM (UfkIY)

131 yeah, cops that won't bother arresting thieves? There is hard evidence, easy arrest ... they are not that flucking busy ... arrest a few and put them on the news so the shiit stops.


That one woman had a nice house ... all upset that she stole a glitter bomb ... like "how dare they".

Posted by: illiniwek at December 18, 2018 03:17 PM (Cus5s)

132 91 If one were cynical, one might think about the revenue aspects of pursuing certain crimes over others to governments.

Theft like this, well the government will have to give the property back and warehouse the wrong-doer.

Speeding. Fines. Sweet, cold hard cash for the government.

Drugs? Seizure of property and money, which then go into coffers.

Victor Davis Hanson had a whole series of essays about this, where illegal aliens had their impromptu roadside stands, illegal roadside garbage dumps, and squatter tents, none of which were ever busted by the police, who were too busy setting up speed traps and environmental regulations for middle class people to be caught.

136 Its interesting that most of the people doing this look to be fairly well off.

They are being taken by homeless people, but by people driving fairly nice or new cars.

LOL. This happens on a large scale in the county where I grew up.

It's a poor county, with one nice middle-class neighborhood that supplies 78% of county tax revenues. It borders a neighboring (super-rich) county that would love to steal the neighborhood.

During the winter, the Sheriff's office has to patrol the neighborhood constantly, to turn back the other county's snowplows - since if they plow it enough times, they can claim it.

If not, someone knows Ms. Exceedingly Crappy decor and ifMECD is not an actress, that someone will tell the world who she is, and police might be shamed into action.

The police should be shamed anyway... if not staged, the police really ought to have been pointed at her GPS coordinates and the video recordings from start to finish, and their inaction used to point out how letting theft from people's homes go unpunished necessarily leads to risk of vigilante action, whether benign or dangerous.

197 It's been a long time since even small town cops tried to solve property crimes rather than just filing the report. What they do now is try, when they pick up someone for something else, to either recover the stolen items from their residence and close a file, or get them to confess to crimes as part of a plea deal and close files that way.

140 Monica Crowley has it correct.
The judge accused Flynn of being a traitor, even though the judge later came back to clarify, you can't unring that fucking bell.

That's disappointing coming from Monica. If Flynn pleads guilty he is admitting to being a traitor. The Judge was just letting Flynn know he doesn't have to abide by Mueller's sentencing memo and if he goes ahead and pleads guilty he might be facing serious jail time.

Two problems with this, as with most crime.

People who tend to do this kind of thing can't/won't pay fines and court costs - so the government has to spend money, rather than make money, to enforce the laws.

People who do this kind of thing might actually be dangerous - meaning the government might face physical risk enforcing the laws.

For most "public servants" laws are only to be enforced when it's safe and profitable.

280 Though it varies from state to state, adverse possession usually has four components: the claimer has to have known that the property wasn't his, he has to make a permanent improvement on it, it has to be done openly, and it has to be done for a certain number of years.

Let's suppose your are a cop.

You can either:

Go after "serious crime" - which means the very real chance of being shot, and constant complaints you are rayciss - but at least you feel good about putting seriously bad people away.


Go after middle class crimes - speeding, parking violations, etc. Minimal danger, the "culprits" comply with your commands. No one calls you rayciss.


You can go after low level property theft - you might get physically attacked (because these criminals are painfully stupid), everyone calls you rayciss, and the justice system is just going to let them go with a slap on the wrist anyway.

It happens, but not often.

There was a situation I was tangentially involved in where a homeowner owned a piece of land that had a big hill. They only maintained up to the hill, the neighbor mowed & maintained a piece of the property at the bottom of the hill for years, and tried to claim it by adverse possession.

I forget how it turned out though. I'm thinking the original home owners got to keep it because their leach fields were "using" that sliver of property by draining in to it or something. But I could be wrong. Like I said, I wasn't super involved.

But either way, both sides had to hire lawyers and spend money to litigate it.

341 There was a situation I was tangentially involved in where a homeowner owned a piece of land that had a big hill. They only maintained up to the hill, the neighbor mowed & maintained a piece of the property at the bottom of the hill for years, and tried to claim it by adverse possession.

I forget how it turned out though. I'm thinking the original home owners got to keep it because their leach fields were "using" that sliver of property by draining in to it or something. But I could be wrong. Like I said, I wasn't super involved.

But either way, both sides had to hire lawyers and spend money to litigate it.

The problem with our legal system is, everybody gets their day in court, but that doesn't mean the law is on their side.

I agree though it's best to take steps to avoid someone even getting near a courthouse.

I was sued for stock I owned by a vendor that was owed money by the company I held stock in. Let that sink in.

Personally, I find these kind of crimes to be way more of a quality of life issue for me then people rolling through stop signs or not wearing a seatbelt or whatever other "crimes" the cops spend of their time pursuing, but whatever.

But those "crimes" bring in the sweet, sweet lucre necessary for many of these same cities to operate.

NYC and Chicago get about ten percent (10%) of their revenues from tickets and fines. Ferguson Missouri got over half (50%+) of their money via cops writing tickets.

You are not citizens, just assets to be shaken down for money.

345 I've had a few things stolen - a piece of jewelry while I was at school in CA and a statue from my porch in my home state. The statue? The cops didn't give a flying pig's eye about it. When I mentioned it during jury duty, the judge laughed like it was funny (newsflash, theft isn't funny to the victims). The jewelry? I was in CA and the school barely investigated - got back to me at graduation and was all, "couldn't find anything," even though they could have narrowed down the suspects vis a vis all the cameras pointed at the bathroom doors and surrounding hallways... and the fact that it was after hours, so probably less than 20 people had opportunity to commit the crime (pretty sure it was either a classmate or the cleaning staff). I didn't go to the police, since I already knew they wouldn't touch it. Might as well not wear jewelry, honestly.

No one gives a damn about private property anymore. After all, we all pay property tax, anyway. Do we truly even have private property in this country?

How to prevent package thieves: get a mailbox with a mail company - either independent or UPS, with staff who will accept your packages. The only issue you may run into is dumbass companies who refuse to ship to you because they think you have a PO box (or they ship using FedEx, who decides a UPS box is the same as a PO box...).

Actress Reveals That Woody Allen Began a Sexual Relationship With Her When She Was 16

He has a type: Underaged.


A former actress and model has come forward with claims that she had a relationship with Woody Allen that started when she was 16.

...

"What made me speak is I thought I could provide a perspective," she said. "I'm not attacking Woody. This is not 'bring down this man.' I'm talking about my love story. This made me who I am. I have no regrets."

Allen didn’t provide comment to THR and has not responded to a request for comment by PEOPLE.


Engelhardt said the relationship started when she gave Allen her number at a New York City restaurant in 1976 and he called her a few days later to invite her to his apartment. The two continued a relationship for 8 years in which they often met at his penthouse overlooking Central Park.

"The curtains were always drawn," Engelhardt said. "The view must have been spectacular. I wasn’t there for the view."

Woody Allen's movie Manhattan was about a relationship with a 17 year old girl. The basic story was based on Allen's own sexual relationship with actress Stacey Nelkin.

But Woody Allen changed the age of the girl in the story.

Nelkin was actually 16, not 17.

Actually, now that I re-read that Wikipedia article, it claims that while Allen met Nelkin when she was 16, they both claim the relationship didn't begin until she was 17.

Well. Okay. If you both claim that.

Since Woody Allen's "relationship" with his almost-a-daughter was revealed in 1992, I always think of this scene he wrote for Bananas, in which a mad dictator decrees, for unknown reasons, that "all girls under 16 years old... are now... 16 years old."

I can't see that as anything other than a way around statutory rape.

If you insist on calling into question a United States of America plea agreement I can't guarantee that I won't impose a long sentence of incarceration.

On the other hand, perhaps you would like a delay to consider entering into an amended plea agreement in which the young lady was actually 29.

81 My own theory, which doesn't hold water, is that the men who still pursue girls way younger than adults are emotionally stuck in jr. high school, a time when perhaps their raging sexual needs were frustrated, hidden, ridiculed even. Maybe they were tormented with obsessional thoughts over a particular girl that they never could attain, but still carry on this ideal in their heads of what they really, really want.

92 Rush had an interesting observation..

Sullivan said something like "I've never accepted a guilty plea from someone who is not guilty, and I'm not going to start now"

Sullivan read those documents.. he know Flynn is not guilty of this charge.

So Flynn was coerced or convinced to cop this plea to save his son? save himself from something worse?

And Sullivan threw Flynn a bone.. and told him to think about it for a while..

Mueller's gotta be pissed as hell today.

The lying charge is false.. doubly so.. because he didn't lie, and because it was based on a bullshit wire tap that should have never been put in place in the first place.. maybe triply so because Flynn should never have been identified/un-masked!

121 81 My own theory, which doesn't hold water, is that the men who still pursue girls way younger than adults are emotionally stuck in jr. high school, a time when perhaps their raging sexual needs were frustrated, hidden, ridiculed even. Maybe they were tormented with obsessional thoughts over a particular girl that they never could attain, but still carry on this ideal in their heads of what they really, really want.

I largely agree.

I personally wouldn't be interested in a 16 year old girl, but we have a weird hang up on these things in the US.

16 is the legal age of consent in many states.

And 16 year olds are having sex with other 16 year olds.

We try 16 year olds as adults pretty often.

We allow 16 year olds to drive cars.

No, see it's anorher of the have it both ways rule - if a girl who's 16 wants to do something like have a abortion, she's an adult and can decide for herself.
If she gets boned by a guy we think is okay, Likey dreamy Woody or Roman Polanski, it's okay.
If she wants birth control, you should pay for it.
Vs
If she gets boned by a guy we don't like, she's practically a baby!
If she needs health insurance, she's not an adult until she's 27.Kinda like charging people who kill a pregnant woman with TWO murders, but allowing someone to abort that 'bonus' kill without anyone being charge with anything. Depends on our mood. That's how law works!

Yes, well, girls in their late teens / early 20's are usually at peak attractiveness and are willing to please. Some guys are in to that power dynamic difference.

190 145 Is there anything to corroborate her story? When looking at Allen's life the Sun Yi thing is definitely creepy and inappropriate, but apart from that, his primary relationships seem to have been with adult women, Lasser, Keaton and Farrow.
Posted by: Steve and Cold Bear
_________________

Yes, others have corroborated that she had a relationship with Allen when she was a teen. The Hollywood Reporter article said that Allen would call her at her parents' home (where she lived), and her brother and mother both verified that. A friend who would drop her off at Allen's apartment also confirmed it. As did the girl's agent who is the person she was dining with at Elaine's when she first met Allen.

And Allen had other sexual relationships with teens, including Nelkin, on whom the Manhattan movie is partially based. Englehart (the girl in this story) says that Allen had several other young lovers during the 8 years they were together, and he often had them over for threesomes with Englehart. And of course we know that Allen was having sex with a teenage Soon Yi while he was dating Farrow, so who knows how many other teen lovers there have been over the years?

Makes one wonder if he was just a sick manipulative fvck with a loose screw and the victim in both cases was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or does being forced by the system to subjugate a crass perverted desire result in a more violent end result?

256 Yes, well, girls in their late teens / early 20's are usually at peak attractiveness and are willing to please. Some guys are in to that power dynamic difference.
_______________

Allen does have a type, and it's insecure females who are basically willing to let him treat them badly. If you read Mia Farrow's book, Allen enjoyed mocking and belittling her (and she let him), and he even made a movie (Hannah and Her Sisters) when he was dating Farrow, in which he disparaged her and her family. He seemed to get off on humiliating her, which is probably one of the reasons why he took up with her teen daughter Soon Yi, who was not exactly good looking.

In some ways, Soon Yi may have been the perfect wife for Allen, because she has cognitive and emotional deficits from the abuse she suffered as a child on the streets of Korea. The psychiatric testing she had when she lived with Farrow showed that she has difficulty understanding the nuances of communication. So Allen can treat her as shabbily as he wishes, and she doesn't even know that she's being mocked and disrespected.

MUNCIE, Ind. (WTHR) - A foster parent in Muncie is facing serious charges after allegedly molesting two of the six children in his care.

Jaython Patterson was arrested over the weekend.

According to court documents, Patterson claims he was trying to teach the 7- and 8-year-old boys how to masturbate properly while he was also pleasuring himself.

He's also accused of showing the boys a pornographic video of him and his husband.

Patterson has been charged with child molestation and vicarious sexual gratification.

DCS has since removed all six children from their home.

________________

No, it was a hero worship thing. Allen would not discuss work when he was with her (that was one of his rules), and the only thing she ever asked him for, according to her, was help getting a SAG card, which he refused, telling her "you'll have to get that on your own."

He basically just used the girl for sex (always at his apartment, with the drapes drawn). She went along, because she was young and foolish and thought he was brilliant and witty and cool.

295 Open and thoughtful, Engelhardt unspools a life story that took root in a strict German immigrant household and blossomed into a Zelig-esque series of adventures as she attempted to break into modeling: partying with Iman, jet-setting with Adnan Khashoggi, dining with Stephen King, working as a personal assistant to Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire financier later convicted for soliciting an underage girl. Following her time with Allen, she went on to become a platonic muse to Federico Fellini during the auteur's late-life journeys in Rome and Tulum, Mexico, then spent years tending to egos as a hostess in the executive dining room at Paramount before landing her current gig, working as an assistant for producer Bob Evans. What's made her attractive to these powerful men, both personally and professionally, she posits, is in part what Allen appreciated in the first place: "I was pretty enough, I was smart enough, I was nonconfrontational, I was non-judgmental, I was discreet, and nothing shocks me."

But the Hollywood Reporter doesn't want to mention the obvious connection of Hollywood Pedo-ville.

Clinton-Appointed Judge in Flynn Sentencing Hearing Accuses Him of Treason, Suggests He'll Sentence Him Beyond What the Plea Deal Calls for

#TheResistance has a new hero.

The Clinton-appointed judge, Emmett Sullivan, claimed that Flynn's suggestion that the FBI misled him (which it, you know, did) cast doubt on Flynn's acceptance of culpability. The not-so-veiled threat from the judge is that if Flynn wouldn't repudiate his previous complaints about the FBI, he'd toss out the plea deal and sentence Flynn more harshly than the plea called for.

He also badgered both Flynn and the prosecutor about whether Flynn had committed "treason."

Though then, after he returned from a break, this Clinton appointee said he wanted to "clarify" that his own previous claim that Flynn was working in the White House when his contacts with foreigners occurred. I guess he bothered to read the actual facts and corrected himself -- well, "clarified" -- that Flynn wasn't in the White House and that he was now not "suggesting" treason.

Which is actually exactly what he did before.

Basically the judge seems to be threatening Flynn with jail time unless he offers more to the Mueller investigation. Flynn has gotten that message, and now says he wants to delay sentencing because he might cooperate more with Mueller.

The court has delayed sentencing to permit this. So, no sentencing today. After threatening Flynn for an hour, Flynn got the message and said he would cooperate more.

16 In defense of this judge, he was practically begging Flynn to withdraw the plea, and I think based on that he might have even thrown the whole thing out. Flynn is either hiding something else or was just laying down like a tired, wounded dog until the judge insinuated he would do hard time if he didn't at least agree to delay sentencing.

What I don't understand, and would fault the judge on (unless his hands are tied) is ... why does he have to play along with this fucking charade? Why not vacate the plea irrespective of whether Flynn agrees to or not given that he all but stated he knew there was serious proprietorial misconduct? Throw the damn plea and indictment out, with prejudice, hold the prosecution in contempt, and let them know that if they go after Flynn again further contempt charges will follow.

Our "justice" system is a fucking disgrace.

he wants to throw him in jail and is looking for any reason to do so.

35 I have a completely different reading than Ace.

I think the treason comment was aimed squarely at the prosecution. And by retracting it, as Jackal claimed, he got the prosecution to back off too. So if it wasn't treason, was it really that bad.

Sullivan gave Flynn every opportunity to retract his plea. And he still has time. Flynn has agency.

But if Flynn stays the course, Sullivan will throw the book at him. How cooperative he will be following that will remain to be seen. That could be a wild card Mueuller wants to avoid.

44 >>I think the treason comment was aimed squarely at the prosecution. And by retracting it, as Jackal claimed, he got the prosecution to back off too. So if it wasn't treason, was it really that bad.

>>Sullivan gave Flynn every opportunity to retract his plea. And he still has time. Flynn has agency.

>>But if Flynn stays the course, Sullivan will throw the book at him. How cooperative he will be following that will remain to be seen. That could be a wild card Mueuller wants to avoid.

TLDR: Flynn decided to delay sentencing so Sullivan can consider his continued cooperation with the government.

Is this bullshit or is this the fake news spin??

Flynn is supposedly cooperating with Mueller, not the Government. Mueller is the Shadow Government.

"Arguably, you sold your country out," Sullivan said. "The court's going to consider all that. I cannot assure you that if you proceed today you will not receive a sentence of incarceration."

He went on:

"I'm not hiding my disgust, my disdain for this criminal offense."

I don't believe that would work - it would require a judge to side with Trump on a major issue where the government has a very interested iron in the fire, and that's an extremely, extremely unlikely outcome.

Can it be done by EO when the CR expires?

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice at December 18, 2018 01:08 PM (AzW6q)

51 Because he was looking for MOAR EVIDENCE against Flynn.

And because he wanted to bring up this idea that if Flynn complains about FBI tactics, then he's not really accepting responsibility, and can be thrown in jail.

he wants to throw him in jail and is looking for any reason to do so.
Posted by: ace at December 18, 2018 01:02 PM (PbpT7)

But that's the thing. Why does a judge need to get -more- evidence than the prosecution freely offers? Particularly if the prosecution has a plea deal and is recommending a light sentence?

You can call it a good cop/ bad judge, but if that was true Sullivan wouldn't be bringing up things that tend to damage the prosecution. It's at least as likely that Sullivan is fed up to the gills, and will punish Flynn for his role in this kabuki.

Posted by: trev006 at December 18, 2018 01:08 PM (yBq7A)

Judges told him there was not enough for treason. Sullivan will hold them to that now. So he backed off, because he didn't want that sting to linger.

Posted by: thirteen28 at December 18, 2018 01:10 PM (GdJ+p)

64 The judge is not doing favors for Flynn.

Please read what he said:

"Arguably, you sold your country out," Sullivan said. "The court's going to consider all that. I cannot assure you that if you proceed today you will not receive a sentence of incarceration."

He went on:

"I'm not hiding my disgust, my disdain for this criminal offense."

>>He went on:

>>"I'm not hiding my disgust, my disdain for this criminal offense."

And he walked all of it back after the break.

He also asked Flynn over and over if he wanted to pull his guilty plea and if he wanted to delay sentencing. It sounded like he was trying to goad him into it.

It is a very strange outcome for a simple plea bargain.

66 > "This is a very serious offense," Sullivan said. "A high ranking senior official of the government making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation while on the physical premises of the White House."

76 "TLDR: Flynn decided to delay sentencing so Sullivan can consider his continued cooperation with the government."

Can't have Flynn come testify from prison on a felony lying charge - I suppose the defense will use that gladly. So, best to wait until after Flynn gives testimony, then sentence him on the lying offense. Maybe the Judge is playing along with the SCO on that...

82 "Basically the judge seems to be threatening Flynn with jail time unless
he offers more to the Mueller investigation. Flynn has gotten that
message, and now says he wants to delay sentencing because he might
cooperate more with Mueller."
If there was anything else left for Flynn to give to Mueller then why would Mueller have asked for no jail sentence? It indicates that Mueller thought there was nothing left to apply pressure for.

84 The Logan Act. That is the charge the prosecution told Sullivan that they could charge him with.

Sullivan then asked "Isn't that the law nobody has ever been charged with" as if he didn't know.

Posted by: JackStraw at December 18, 2018 01:14 PM (/tuJf)

85 I used to work for a judge as a clerk and pleas were taken according to form. The defendant had to admit to each element of the crime under oath and the prosecution had to provide the facts for each element that the defendant was pleading guilty to.

If the judge is not certain what crime the defendant is pleading to that is on the prosecution for not making that perfectly clear in the presentencing report. If the defendant is pleading yet proclaiming innocence regarding one of the elements, then again everything gets stopped to be sorted out. Ultimately, if it turned into a Charlie Foxtrot it was the fault of the prosecution for not getting everything lined up before hand.

That's the thing. I don't think the judge is any more pleased with Flynn than with the prosecution. He sees a defense case that implies the government set Flynn up, but is pleading guilty in the face of exculpatory evidence. Then severely criticizes Flynn, only to walk it back after a meeting with the prosecutors.

Is it just opposite day around here? Forget Sullivan's political leanings, I'm wondering if he's as confused as I am.
