The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

President Donald Trump may be many things, some of which I would prefer he isn't, but treasonous is not one of them. It is childish and offensive in the extreme for the braying asses of the NeverTrump world to throw that accusation around as if it meant something other than a simple insult. But it is a powerful insult, and one that is noticed by many as being ridiculous on its face. If someone were to call me a traitor, I would contemplate a physical response, because as a loyal American there is nothing worse one can be accused of. The silent majority in this country will undoubtedly remain peaceful, at least without further inflammatory behavior and actions from the elites, but they will remember, and they will vote. They will compare the casual accusation of treason from the chattering classes to their neighbor who just got a job, and their bonuses at work, and their first hint in a decade that maybe, just maybe, we have a president who will defend our borders and look out for us before "them" on the world stage.

Am I pleased with the way the President conducted himself yesterday? No, I would have preferred a more aggressive stance against Russian provocations. Am I sublimating that desire and supporting him even more forcefully because of the hysterical and insulting reaction from the lunatics who support the deep state's drive to destroy Trump? You bet!

Here is a slightly different take on the press conference, from a man whose opinion deserves to be taken seriously...almost as seriously as does Anderson Vanderbilt.
Diplomacy 101 Versus Politics Writ Small

The high professional quality of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin's performance at their Monday press conference in Helsinki contrasts sharply with the obloquy by which the bipartisan U.S. ruling class showcases its willful incompetence.

Though I voted for Trump, I've never been a fan of his and I am not one now. But, having taught diplomacy for many years, I would choose the Trump-Putin press conference as an exemplar of how these things should be done. Both spoke with the frankness and specificity of serious business. This performance rates an A+.

Angelo Codevilla has been around for a very long time, and knows a bit about geopolitical intrigue. I used to read him in Commentary before that once-great magazine lost its way, and while he is too much of a believer in realpolitik for my taste, his take was always interesting. I think he is too sanguine about Trump's performance, but the underlying message that he sees is interesting.

But let us look at reality. Trump gave Poland anti-missile technology a few months ago. That is a concrete message to the Russian bear, and it dwarfs any parsing of syntax at a press conference by 20-something journalism majors. I hope that the President continues to support freedom in Eastern Europe, and continues to push back against Russian expansion in the Middle East. If he does that, I will cheerfully tolerate conciliatory press conferences every now and then.

Oh damn...Misanthropic Humanitarian used this last night on the ONT, but it's so pleasing I think I will leave it, because I love the matter-of-fact way these guys beat the snot out of Mr. Dumb Robber.

Maybe I am too dogmatic and rigid in my thinking, but I have never understood what the hell these commies are saying. How can a living wage be a human right? The wage must be paid by someone else, who will be coerced into paying that wage. So how can the human right of one person come at the expense of another?

As an aside, I wonder how this < iBoston accent>retard< /Boston accent> defines morality, because I would bet that his concept of morality is a sort of free-floating, whatever-feels-good type of morality, unlinked to any higher power or objective measure.

I rate yesterday as a net positive for the President. And considering that some jagoff stooge who was involved in Watergate claimed it was worse than Kristallnacht and Pearl Harbor, my opinion that Trump was actually masterful yesterday only solidifies.

34 Donald Trump causes outrage by insisting that NATO countries live up to their defense obligations - to protect them against Russian invasion or attack.

---------------

Donald Trump causes outrage because he was too friendly in his talk with the Russian president.


So which is it? Is Donald Trump too friendly with Russia or is he too harsh? Or is it that there will be outrage just because Donald Trump is president.*

Four Democratic-led northeastern states sued the Trump administration to invalidate the new $10,000 cap on the federal tax deduction for state and local taxes.

The tax law resulted from a "hyper-partisan and rushed process" that will disproportionately harm taxpayers in the four states, New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood said in a statement.

There are no Russian "provocations", at least no more than American "provocations" against every country on the planet. It is our ignorance as Americans and our reliance on the American and allied medias that informs us as to what we believe. As Goebbels noted, "in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily". There is so much disinformation and deception going on that truth is ignored and lies are enshrined in the narrative.

67 audit the FBI.

Every federal agency should be audited. But, then they'd have to be accountable. I think it was 60 Minutes that showed where each agency was storing furniture and equipment that they couldn't use but needed to spend every cent of their budget so it wouldn't be cut. Too bad they weren't forward thinking enough to upgrade their computer systems back then instead. Now, supposedly, they don't have the funds to do so, which leaves them susceptible to cyber attack just to maintain these legacy systems.

1. Everybody knows the media are dishonest, and opposed to Trump.
2a. Many see this as a feature rather than a bug, especially the media.
2b. Most are opposed to the dishonesty of the media, and their opposition to Trump.
3. While many may revel in the media's poo flinging regarding the Trump/Putin press conference, most are repulsed by it.
Sum. Trump wins again.

112 My perception is the left has been trying to provoke Russia into war ever since Trump won the election. They are criticizing Trump for not challenging Russia to a war at the press conference or at least insulting Putin as another provocation.

They want war with Russia to embarrass Trump and to bolster their claims that Republicans are the war-mongers.

Who else is there to vote for who isn't a magnitude crazier than Trump? Seriously, just hearing the "Abolish ICE" is absolute insanity! American citizens are dying by the thousands at the hands of illegal aliens and drugs pouring through our southern border.

I want to know what the asshats who want to abolish the second amendment think will happen if their wish comes true. If you can't stop human trafficking and drug smuggling, what do they thin will happen if guns are banned? Creating a black market for weapons is the best way to turn this country into Mexico.

Posted by: Concerned People's Front, Splitter Chapter at July 17, 2018 11:27 AM (rdl6o)

124 So how can the human right of one person come at the expense of another?"

Leftists are too dense to realize that this argument has been going on for well over 100 years now, and they keep losing it.

It's the issue of Negative Rights vs "Positive" Rights. Our Constitution is the best model in existence of a document that embraces the doctrine of "Negative RIghts" - it contains an enumerated list of actions which the Government MAY NOT do with respect to a citizen. They may not restrict your speech, or your religion, they may not deny you a fair trial, etc., etc. The doctrine of Negative Rights is an old and deeply conservative view of Government's role.

So-called "Positive Rights", on the other hand, have long been a deeply held goal of the leftists, and were pushed hard while FDR was in office. These would be that you have a RIGHT to a house, you have a RIGHT to a job, you have a RIGHT to healthcare. And Government's function is to use any and all powers to provide you with these things. This is always an invitation to a grand increase in the scale and power of Government, which is why leftists love this idea so.

Taking this back to the days of the Founders, and the ideas they held when the Constitution was written, our founding documents are based on the concept of "Natural Law". Under "Natural Law", the rights that any man (or woman) has are those that he has at the moment of this birth - you have the right to your life, you have the right to speak and be heard, you are born with the right to your own freedom. (hence the perpetual conflict between "natural law" and the concept of Slavery) The Concept of Natural Law is where we derive the concept that just as we can not be forced into servitude of another, neither may we force others into servitude for ourselves. It was a novel concept when it first arose, an it is still a revolutionary idea today.

There's only one reason you hide evidence from law enforcement, and it's always the same old thing no matter what level of criminality is involved - the Evidence you try to hide holds the proof that you're lying about what actually went on.

The Dem's actions alone tell me that they know their story is completely bullshit.

169 NorthernLurker. I know a couple of people who get benefit from CBD oil. But for back spasms I think I'd go with heat first instead of a topical medical marijuana.

Heat can be from a liniment type thing like IcyHot, or absorbine gel (thats the horse one) or the chemical hot packs. There is a product called Pain Wizard that is a good combo of menthol, and capsaicin for heat and some topical anti-inflammatories. My dad uses it for his knees and I will use it if I over did on weeding or something and put my back into spasm mode.

172 "How can a living wage be a human right? The wage must be paid by someone
else, who will be coerced into paying that wage. So how can the human
right of one person come at the expense of another?"
I mocked their logic yesterday, with that woman that didn't want to work at all, she thought it was a right to have free stuff ... manna from heaven, God makes it, no labor needed.

The living wage is dumb, but there is a point in the equation where people become subjects of totalitarian regimes. Our bill of rights mostly laid out our liberties, but our laws had to adjust to mafias and special interests, so we got RICO to break up racketeering, where certain groups prefer their own, but other groups are outlawed from preferring their own.

Perhaps free trade and open borders come under this rubric of the American "right to work" as opposed to having our government give "equal rights" to enemies. Conglomerates bought our government and craft carve-outs and laws that were not in Americans' interest, but that mostly snuffs out competition and normal wage competition (as we see with illegals suppressing wages, or H1-Bs where Americans are forced to train cheap labor from India).

Americans (middle class hardest hit) have the right to expect their government to protect their wages ... and that will indeed come at the "expense" of foreigners seeking to "invade" our markets. "Free Trade" said nope, only bottom line matters, and the CoCs still run the show (mostly).

yes indeed ... like the 'Muslim Ban', which was about terrorist countries, did not include the vast majority of Muslims in the world. But the agitprop headlines were written, and narrative screamed by the useful idiot talking heads.

Trump called Mexicans rapists and murderers ... he was talking about illegals. "not sending their best". Same story when he was deporting MS-13 and the left coordinated the narrative, their outrage histrionics were turned to eleventy ... off they go.

Trump was nuanced, he met privately and said there are good arguments why the (biggest part of) the problem was not Russia. Putin confirmed with "what was in the emails (devastating to Hillary) was not fabricated", AND Putin offered up that bit about the $400M Hillary took.

If you truly understand the nature of society and its relationship with the legal system, you would understand both the concepts of jury nullification and vigilante acts. I know people condemn vigilantes, but how many vigilante acts have actually been a mistake, meaning an injustice was done due to faulty understanding? Now, compare that with how many were justified. It's like posing about how "lynching" is wrong. Why? Look at the total numbers of lynchings over the first 150 years of this nation. Not even 4,000 and a third of those were for White people. I assure you, while it may seem cruel, so is hanging someone with the blessing of the State. And, let's be honest: you would not have the stupidity of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Detroit, Baltimore, etc., etc., if society engaged in ex parte justice.

263 Here's the hard truth:

EVERY SINGLE NATION IN THE WORLD that has the capability to "meddle" in U.S. politics does so.

Every. Single. One.

Why? Because we're the top-dog nation, and because our system of government makes it easier for meddlers to attempt to meddle. (Interesting to contemplate which side of American politics is hell-bent on making meddling easier, and which tries to preserve what defenses American society has to that meddling, but I digress...)

The U.K. meddles constantly, mainly via the propaganda machine called the BBC.

The Chinese meddle by buying up companies and real estate, and by rampant industrial espionage.

Russians meddle by doing what Russians do really, really well: disinformation and subversion.

The rest of the Euros (Germany, France et al) meddle by pushing scams like "climate" and most egregiously "globalism."

They constantly berate Trump when he is on foreign soil, and set up a press conference (Rosie) right after Trump meets the Queen, right when he is meeting Putin ... sedition from within.

Trump was nuanced, but our war is against those that supported Obama in "fundamental transformation", on the way to their "new world order". So while the left calls for war with Russia in the face of Trump the POTUS ... just who is really committing "treason".

Clearly the left's criminals, from deep inside our own government, have waged the coup. Trump cleared things up ... he is the executive, and the subversives inside our government will be dealt with, not allowed to start their own WAR (beyond what war they are already waging).

Bush administration speculated that Russian President Vladimir Putin never thought Trump would win the election and instead wanted to "send a warning" to Clinton that Russia could have information from her hacked personal email server.

Mukasey added: "There are some 30,000 emails that Mrs. Clinton did not turn over, on the claim that they were personal and involved such trivia as yoga routines and Chelsea's wedding. If they instead contained damaging information -- say, regarding Clinton Foundation fundraising -- the new president would have taken office in the shadow of a sword dangling from a string held by the Russians."

Perhaps the intelligence agencies shouldn't be conspiring to disenfranchise half the country, either.

It's not just an attack on Donald Trump - it's an attack on the voter.

Don't ever forget that.

And I agree with the judge. What the hell was he supposed to have done? Be openly antagonistic? Call Putin a cocksucking liar? What?

I don't get all the hubbub over this at all. It was a fucking press conference. A Q&A session.

The president made a simple statement: Putin firmly denied the allegations. What was Putin supposed to have done? Admit culpability in every bit of wrongdoing in history? To what end?

The real outrage is the fact that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton were called out by both Trump and Putin. That's what has the chattering classes all exercised.

And guess what? Even if Russia did hack the DNC (which there is no evidence they did - the server was never examined by the FBI and other experts have stated such speedy downloads couldn't have been done remotely) who the hell cares what happens to the DNC? I sure as hell don't. It's the epicenter of every bit of filth, discord and rot in Western Civilization. To hell with them.

350 With respect to Vigilante Justice, including lynching - the reason it is vital for the State to provide an effective and impartial Justice System (one of it's two most important reasons for existence, the other being mutual defense) is that an impartial system which is accepted as legitimate and effective does away with the need and desire for private justice, that which is carried out by private parties.

If a society does not have the former, it will always have the latter. That's how people are. Private "justice" has a huge cost, and is a huge risk, because while it may seem acceptable when it is carried out against a universally hated criminal, it can easily devolve into Vendetta, of the kind that Sicily was famous for. One family takes down an enemy who has wronged them, his family takes out someone in return, and so on forever.

Even worse are in areas that have bitter tribal and religious divisions, and in those places vigiliantism descends into the type of constant guerilla war of group vs group such as we see today in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and most of Africa. It is the gateway to chaos and death of society itself.

When we attempt to stop vigilantism, THIS is the door we are trying to close. But, there must be a strong, effective, and feared state sponsored system of Justice, or else this other path is the one any society will go down.

358 124 So how can the human right of one person come at the expense of another?"

Leftists are too dense to realize that this argument has been going on for well over 100 years now, and they keep losing it.

It's the issue of Negative Rights vs "Positive" Rights. Our Constitution is the best model in existence of a document that embraces the doctrine of "Negative RIghts" - it contains an enumerated list of actions which the Government MAY NOT do with respect to a citizen. They may not restrict your speech, or your religion, they may not deny you a fair trial, etc., etc. The doctrine of Negative Rights is an old and deeply conservative view of Government's role.

So-called "Positive Rights", on the other hand, have long been a deeply held goal of the leftists, and were pushed hard while FDR was in office. These would be that you have a RIGHT to a house, you have a RIGHT to a job, you have a RIGHT to healthcare. And Government's function is to use any and all powers to provide you with these things. This is always an invitation to a grand increase in the scale and power of Government, which is why leftists love this idea so.

Taking this back to the days of the Founders, and the ideas they held when the Constitution was written, our founding documents are based on the concept of "Natural Law". Under "Natural Law", the rights that any man (or woman) has are those that he has at the moment of this birth - you have the right to your life, you have the right to speak and be heard, you are born with the right to your own freedom (hence the perpetual conflict between "natural law" and the concept of Slavery). The Concept of Natural Law is where we derive the concept that just as we can not be forced into servitude of another, neither may we force others into servitude for ourselves. It was a novel concept when it first arose, an it is still a revolutionary idea today.

I've been critical of Trump, particularly on his Syria intervention stuff, but the constant fake news on him has built up a reflex loyalty to him.

It's funny how the Dims are always telling us that taxes are too low, and the rich don't pay enough taxes, and all that other bullshit.

Then, when they get what they said they wanted and their taxes actually go up, they raise holy hell and sue to try and get the tax hike invalidated.

Nancy Pelosi has been screaming for years that rich people (like her) don't pay enough taxes and get too many "loopholes" and tax breaks, but as soon as the SALT taxes were capped at $10,000, Pelosi pre-paid her CA property taxes so that she could claim all of them as a deduction on her current taxes. This is a woman who has a net worth (thanks to her years of corruption) of tens of millions of dollars (or more), but she wasn't going to pay more taxes if there was any way she could avoid it.

Say one thing, and then do the opposite. It's the Dim way.

398 I've been critical of Trump, particularly on his Syria intervention stuff, but the constant fake news on him has built up a reflex loyalty to him. Because more than 99% of the time that reflex is correct and it's easier to save thinking power for more important things than considering every piece of drivel the cuck-crew crawls out since it's almost always wrong.
Posted by: Nationalist Pikachu at July 17, 2018 12:06 PM (H0bCE)

...

For me, it's not reflex loyalty to Trump. It's just reflex disbelief in the MSM.

They think we're in a tight defensive circle around Trump with our heads in the sand.

The reality is that the MSM itself, in having destroyed its own credibility, has rendered Trump immune to any accusation.

What credible source is left to accuse Trump? Even if he actually does something, what news source could bring it forth in a way that the half of the country that voted for Trump would even consider it on the merits?

There was a plan. There was input, from many quarters. There were points of disagreement, and they covered in the press conference that those do indeed exist. They may never be reconciled. Kiev's problems are self inflicted and not as important to the US as the ME, Like the Norks, like trade, like counterterrorism. FSB's elimination of ex-soldiers who turn is well known. Will they stop ? Most likely not. London should have hidden them better.

457 362 That sidebar thing... yes, some Nazis were obsessed with the occult, Goebbels in particular (he was literally creating a new state religion with a special castle where rituals would be carried out in special chambers, etc). Hitler was fascinated in some of that stuff."

What I found most enlightening about that article was the end, where the author observed that Nazism was a Political Religion. That explains both its most bizarre aspects and the absolute fanaticism which it inspired.

We are now fighting another powerful Political Religion - Modern Leftism. It has much in common with the last version, which explains why it is so pernicious. If you understand that the extreme hatred against Trump exists because he commits Public Heresy against this new religion every single day, it becomes easy to understand.

And just like the Nazi's, they're trying to create a religion which denies there is any God. I think I see why it can't last long, and never does.

If you understand that the extreme hatred against Trump exists because he commits Public Heresy against this new religion every single day, it becomes easy to understand.

And just like the Nazi's, they're trying to create a religion which denies there is any God. I think I see why it can't last long, and never does.

These political religions have the same source.

I thought it was kind of amusing when Putin refused to take the indictment papers out of Wallace's hands and told him to set it on the table.

Was wondering how many times Putin has ordered somebody killed by having them handle some innocuous item that had been coated with a lethal poison. He wasn't going to take any chances . . . .

Amen.

And Trump raked Merkel over the coals for Germany's multi-billion dollar gas-oil pipeline deal with Russia. That's language the Kremlin clearly understands. But you won't hear anymore about that at CNN or MSNBC. It's all identity politics and virtue-signalling for the Lefty boobs 24/7.

God has the ultimate "big picture". He knows the things to influence to get the greatest result. This is cold comfort to those who get a bad time of it in this world, but that's the point of faith--that the next world will more than make up for it. "This, too, shall pass."

As I said, sometimes cold comfort, but leagues better than the alternative.

What credible source is left to accuse Trump? Even if he actually does something, what news source could bring it forth in a way that the half of the country that voted for Trump would even consider it on the merits?

This is the flaw with constantly crying wolf, which everyone knows past the sixth grade but apparently these idiots forgot. There were signs last year that a few of them were starting to realize this, but then they freaked out even harder the next week.

Scott Adams pointed out that if it weren't for this hysterical tantrum by the left, the "Walk Away" movement (whatever its significance or size) would probably never have happened. But people get tired of being lied to and get over fearmongering.

548 These options are no longer available for vast majority of people. It is immoral for society to demand work for subsistence and then turn around and deny them employment. A living wage job is an absolute human right.

So a living wage is 100 bucks. John does not work but his wife works. She makes 200 bucks. Is John still owed his 100 bucks? She has a kid and takes off work. Does society now owe John $300? In his spare time (meaning all days) he writes a little book that gets picked up as an Indy movie. John gets $1000. What are his taxes that year? Does he owe his living wage back?

______________________

I'm here to applaud the courage and restraint of that great peacemaker Nelson Mandela, who spent decades in captivity because he refused to disavow the use of violence (like the lovely burning tire necklaces that his dear wife Winnie liked to place around the necks of her enemies, including children, to ensure that they died horrifically painful, prolonged deaths).

See, those mean, evil whiteys who ran South Africa's awful government were willing to release Mandela for decades. But they wanted him to disavow the use of violence by his followers to achieve their political aims. But Mandela always refused to disavow violence, because he knew that it works.

Today, white farmers in South Africa are being murdered and their lands and other property stolen from them, by Nelson's vicious black brothers who knew, as he did, that violence works!

And that's what I'm here to celebrate! I'm a world-class, world-famous statesman who pretends to believe in peace, just like Mandela did! And lefties around the world revere me and ignore my blatant hypocrisy, just like they did for Mandela!

Yeah fundraising and voter confidence is very light in the Dems, they need a new terror every week just to keep their base in line. IF they ever stopped then people might stop to remember how their party spent over a billion dollars with total media support to ram the single most unlikable candidate in human history down their throats over their wishes and lost.

Then they might go so far as to remember the actual content of the Podesta emails, which documented in painful totality the contempt the Dems have for voters, their racism, their corruption, their ownership of a totally biased news media, and so on.

So every week its a new squirrel to the point I think most of these pundits actually have started to believe their own BS.

616 The not-so-funny thing is, once they kill all the Boers, they'll immediately start in on the rather large Asian population (Indian/Paki ancestry, for the most part, if memory serves), then the "mixed-race" population, as the Boers used to classify them.

Although it was kind of touched on in the film, a lesser-known fact about Gandhi is that he didn't give a damn about equality or ending racism when he was in South Africa. He just wanted to end oppression of his group, Indians. The guy wasn't some grand leader of peace and equality and ending racism. He was just an Indian chauvanist.

624 He was the leader of a terrorist organization that bombed civilians, shot up cars and schools, and were building up to do even worse. He was jailed for being the boss of these guys. Mandela apparently over time figured out that was not the right approach -- supposedly -- but never abandoned his communist ideology.
______________________

My dear friend Nelson knew that violence was the only way, he just figured out, in his dotage, that it worked better for him to pretend that he believed in nonsense like peaceful non-resistance and the brotherhood of man. I mean, look how well that shit worked for Gandhi!

But as I pointed out above, the government of South Africa offered Mandela full freedom many times over the decades. The government's only condition was that Mandela disavow the use of violence to achieve his political aims. And Mandela always refused. Because he knew, as I do, that violence is the only way to deal with the evil JOOOOOOs and whitey!

I tend to agree because it was Adm. Rogers who was then head of the NSA that tipped Trump off to the FBI's and Obama Administration spying. And nowhere in all of this "Get Trump" do you find the NSA.

After researching it, Cohen was actually tweeting a young sexy model during B.O.'s 2013 SOTU address (NS) and when Propublica published Cohen's ill timed "ilu" tweet to her, Cohen quickly deleted it and claimed she was just his long lost daughter. But when that hit the press, the young sexy model's real father came forward and had a DNA test that proved Cohen was not the model's father at all. So I wasn't too off mark, Cohen is still just a lying, creepy POS.

164 For those wondering why this is considered Impressionism... Impressionism isn't just the blurry, sketchy pictures made famous by Monet, Impressionism is also allowing the viewer to get a sense of life in late 19th century France. Here we are given an "impression" of a more rural lifestyle. The hard work in the bright, hot sun. The lack of expensive irrigation makes the work harder and more monotonous. You have to water each plant one at a time. These might be lower-class laborers on an upper-class farm, in which case you get an "impression" of the differences in lifestyles between the classes. Or these might be members of the household caring for their food source, in which case it's an "impression" of the French agricultural life.

Either way, it's very bright and reminds me that I have to water my garden tonight.

Apparently he also did a series of painting of men stripping wood floors.

He seems to like the subject matter of people being pensive and focused on what they are doing.

As for the subject, my first thought was that wall was going to keep all the early season tomato and peach thieves out of the garden.

My second thought was "Cloche! Cloche!"

195 "...I have had time and cause to reflect on what made him a great president. Ronald Reagan knew his own mind. He had firm principles - and, I believe, right ones. He expounded them clearly, he acted upon them decisively. When the world threw problems at the White House, he was not baffled, or disorientated, or overwhelmed. He knew almost instinctively what to do. When his aides were preparing option papers for his decision, they were able to cut out entire rafts of proposals that they knew 'the Old Man' would never wear. When his allies came under Soviet or domestic pressure, they could look confidently to Washington for firm leadership. And when his enemies tested American resolve, they soon discovered that his resolve was firm and unyielding. Yet his ideas, though clear, were never simplistic. He saw the many sides of truth. Yes, he warned that the Soviet Union had an insatiable drive for military power and territorial expansion; but he also sensed it was being eaten away by systemic failures impossible to reform. Yes, he did not shrink from denouncing Moscow's 'evil empire'. But he realized that a man of goodwill might nonetheless emerge from within its dark corridors. So the President resisted Soviet expansion and pressed down on Soviet weakness at every point until the day came when communism began to collapse beneath the combined weight of these pressures and its own failures. And when a man of goodwill did emerge from the ruins, President Reagan stepped forward to shake his hand and to offer sincere cooperation. Nothing was more typical of Ronald Reagan than that large-hearted magnanimity - and nothing was more American."--Margaret Thatcher

213 83 547 Good morning all. Willowed, from MR - JJ, I was wrong the other day about Cohen sexting his son's girlfriend, but it's still creepy. After researching it, Cohen was actually tweeting a young sexy model during B.O.'s 2013 SOTU address (NS) and when Propublica published Cohen's ill timed "ilu" tweet to her, Cohen quickly deleted it and claimed she was just his long lost daughter. But when that hit the press, the young sexy model's real father came forward and had a DNA test that proved Cohen was not the model's father at all. So I wasn't too off mark, Cohen is still just a lying, creepy POS.

I looked at other of Gustave Caillebotte's works which I find interesting. There seems to be no one school of style: they range from Romantic to Impressionist to more modern (post 1900) styles. Also, I don't know what medium he preferred. Some of them could be watercolors or even pastels.

There was a big business in market gardens for Paris. The wall would be either a relic of a previous owner, or the current owner really splurging on infrastructure.

(Louis Napoleon III really cranked up the credit for the empire, by the way, so there might have been money floating around for walls to keep thieves out, but I suspect it is a walled estate being repurposed.)

2) Trump has always had the authority to declassify and publish all the evidence of collusion. If Mueller had a shed of evidence, Trump knows it. Does Trump act like a man who is hiding?
(Note well the behavior of guilty Clinton when accused--deflect, deny, evade and act stupid. )

3) The whole hidden pursuit of Trump, the reason all good Democrats "KNOW" Russia owns Trump?
They really believe that Russia gave Trump millions to pay off his bankruptcies.
That is the real goal of Mueller, and he is under huge amounts of pressure to "find" that proof.
What's driving them crazier is, that can't find what they just know for sure is there.

It's cabbage, so 'good carbs' with a low glycemic index. Also, cabbage has special attributes, ie anthocyanins and folic acid necessary on a paleo or low carb diet. Also replaces the bad gut bacteria eradicated in a low or no carb diet. It does have chili spice. So you might want to enjoy saurkraut or pickles instead. Or kombucha.

That stuff is crap. The sugar in it feeds the bad gut bacteria that the probiotics are meant to replace. Eat unsweetened plain yougurt with berries and nuts (for the fat). Siggies doesn't taste like death, btw. I sweeten mine with stevia (without malodextrin). Also eat kimchi for the probiotics.

MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant must be dismissed.

Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants, the complaints argue, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

424 Re: Trump/Putin press conference.

After listening to numerous pundits, Rush, Levin, reading everything from the hysterical left to watching a bit of all the cable channels last night, I've come to the conclusion that Trump was once again set up by the Mueller/DOJ team.

A joint press conference with the two would have been planned, coordinated, and details worked out weeks in advance. There is no reason not to have one, as a joint press conference being held by two adults , being asked questions by other adults, should be of world interest. Questions should have been asked regarding Syria, Crimea, oil and gas exploration, Russia's support of Iran, etc.

However, that isn't what happened. IMO, Trump underestimated the child like idiocy of the press, and his ability to answer them, put them in their place,whatever. Mueller and team did not. The DOJ knew how the press would scream and howl and so they set up Trump into a corner with 1. the political theater of indicting 12 unnamed Russian agents who cannot and will not ever see a courtroom in the USA, on Friday when Trump is out of the country headed toward this summit 2. the arrest of a Russian woman legally here in the USA charging her with being a spy? or not registering as a foreign emissary? or whatever the hell it is she has supposedly done. On the same day as Trump is meeting with Putin.

Trump also underestimated just exactly what Mueller is doing. Trump can complain all he wants that it's a Russian witch hunt, (which it is, in my opinion, what exactly did these Russian's do, other than possibly phish the DNC's server, easily accomplished by anyone with a bit of computer knowledge.) But it doesn't matter, because this theater yesterday was designed between Mueller and the DOJ to force Trump to either state publicly to Putin's face that our DOJ/CIA has proof that his government tried to influence the election(thereby putting it's legitimacy in questions which is what the deep state wants) or make Trump defend Putin's claims, (making Trump look weak and guilty, giving the Deep State and never trumpers all the ammo they could want)

But the Lie became mandatory after the DNC leaks.

AoSHQ Shyster #6 reportin' fer dooty.

I don't see how MGM could have filed its own suit against the victims, unless it was some kind of declaratory relief action. Ordinarily, the defendant would raise a defense in the victims' action and at some point, move for summary judgment. Maybe there's a federal law that limits liability of an innkeeper that would support an independent action in federal court, but I've never heard of one.

On the substantive liability issue, I commented to Mrs. Cicero early on that there is a real issue here over whether an innkeeper owes any duty of care at all to people who are not its customers and are located outside of its property. If MGM had no duty toward persons who were across the street, then MGM can't be liable for negligence in contributing to the deaths.

If I represented MGM, I would certainly be making that argument.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at July 17, 2018 10:48 AM (Lg2h/)

Well, I'm not a lawyer , but have experience with corporate lawsuits.

The MGM is trying to stave off bankruptcy. They are saying they had no way of knowing or preventing the shooter from doing what he did out of their hotel window. The victims, however, have most certainly joined into class action lawsuits along with individual lawsuits to sue MGM for negligence for not having metal detectors, screening for weapons, blah blah.

All they need to do is end up at trial with a jury who will decide that MGM is responsible and because they have a lot of assets, should be fleeced out of billions for these victims, and there you have it.

Johnson and Johnson last week were found guilty by a jury of selling baby powder with asbestos in it(no proof, just a claim regarding talc being similar to asbestos) that women used on their crotch, who then claim (again, there is zero scientific proof of this) that it worked it's way into their uterus, up the fallopian tubes and into their ovaries where it caused ovarian cancer( no proof) and proceeded to award 22 women in the suit with 4.2 BILLION dollars.

Of course , Johnson and Johnson are going to appeal this, but meanwhile, they are paying millions to lawyers to fight it. All you need are 12 people on jury with zero medical or research knowledge who you convince that the big bad drug company ignored the non existent warnings about talcum powder, and should be punished and because they are a big company, they can afford to pay out virtually all of their assets.

England at that time was the world center of fractional reserve banking utilizing usury to destroy productive societies. They initiated WWI to destroy the Western aristocracies so that they could usher in their financial system to control governments and rule the peasants. They had no intention of creating a rallying point for the Russian White Armies to promote as an alternative to the Communists. It is no coincidence that Engels and Marx lived and wrote in England.

I think you're correct in your assessment. But I also think Americans are tired of the constant media hysteria. This is the Outrage of the Week - the thing that will really, really bury Trump this time! We got him!Except the media and Swamp Creatures have been playing "gotcha" since the primaries and it hasn't worked. Think of all the things that were supposed to sink Trump for good and didn't.. As long as the economy and job market are good, I don't think this will hurt Trump as much as his enemies hope.

If Reagan was the Telfon president, Trump is the Kevlar president. Trump has to deal with something that Reagan never did - the enmity directed at him by the leaders of his own party. That worries me a lot. You could put the biggest GOPe cuck in the universe in the WH - Jeb or mailman's son or Eddie Munster of Janesville - and Schumer and Pelosi would still be calling him Nazi homophobe racist. But to facing such opposition from your supposed "allies" as well as from the heads of the nations' intelligence services - yikes. If Trump wasn't an abrasive, crude egomaniac, he would have melted under the pressure.

The Morning Report 7/17/18

delusionalclown.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and leading the news is the utterly infantile, irresponsible, completely ginned-up outrage at the President for his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his remarks during the press conference. Let me, as a marginally better informed ordinary observer, try and unpack this as best as I can. Excluding the period of 1941-1945, Russia has been at best a geopolitical rival and at worst an adversarial enemy for almost 100 years (longer if you include the 19th Century imperialists who wanted not only not to sell Alaska to us but envisioned Tsarist expansion into Western Canada and down our Pacific Coast). For nearly 100 years (coincidentally it's the 100th anniversary of the Bolsheviks murdering the Romanovs [last link]), they have been interfering in our internal affairs in an attempt to destabilize us, and foment a communist revolution here at home. Ironic that despite the Soviet collapse in 1991, every major governmental, cultural, academic and media institution has been thoroughly corrupted by socialists and communists to the extent that our youth and too many old enough to know better (or not) have an open, visceral and sometimes violent hatred of their country and fellow citizens. But I digress.

And this brings me back to yesterday's spectacle. The President, as the duly elected commander in chief and head of state has every right and even duty to meet with other foreign leaders, friend and foe alike, in the advancement of our policy, defense of the realm and in the interest of promoting friendly relations. Vladimir Putin is a thug; an ex-KGB agent who views the fall of the old Soviet Union as a catastrophe. As such, he and his allies rule over Russia with an iron fist and will actively strike out at enemies at home and abroad (assassination and invasion included), threatening his neighbors in Eastern Europe and elsewhere and giving aid and comfort to our enemies in the Middle East, especially Iran. That said, despite being essentially a 2nd World Power, he still has nukes, probably aimed at us and therefore you have to deal with him. Hence the summit.

But now, put this all in context with the 2016 presidential campaign, and the fabrication by Clinton/Obama campaign operatives of a phony smear campaign involving Russia and then-candidate Trump and that's why you got what happened in Helsinki yesterday. Circling back, does Russia/did Russia try and meddle in our politics? Yes. Did whatever they did have any affect at all on our election? No. In spite of all this, is there still an ongoing investigation by the DoJ and Robert Mueller ostensibly into all of this? Yes. Is the President, his allies, associates and even family members the targets of this investigation? Yes. Is it legitimate? No.

Everything over the past 18 months to two years has had one purpose and one purpose only: ensure the election of Hillary Clinton and then destroy the campaign and then presidency of Donald Trump. The Mueller witch hunt, which the President rightly called out as such, despite any lack of real evidence to prove that PDT colluded with the Russians to steal the election continues to be the ongoing theme of an increasingly desperate and rabidly insane Democrat-Left-Media complex and their allies in the GOP/Cuckservative wing of their movement. So naturally, when the President openly has a summit with Vladimir Putin, the reaction to it was predictable if not still surprising in its level of unhinged rhetoric.

They have failed on gun control, immigration/amnesty, judicial nominees, tax and economic policy, they're losing control of voting blocs they've enslaved for decades and worst of all, they have lost the ability to control what we think and have exposed themselves as they hacks and propagandists they are to a much broader, heretofore unaware/uninformed audience. And this failure is the work of the man to who is now the focus of their hatred: President Donald J. Trump.

Yes Russia is and was an enemy, yet the Democrat-Media-Academia complex was in bed with them since at least the end of World War 2 as willing allies in an attempt to overthrow the nation as founded, and at the risk of repeating myself, considering the state of our union they almost succeeded, albeit about 30 years too late. So it's particularly galling when the Left dons the decomposed skin suit of Tailgunner Joe McCarthy to shriek "Russia! Russia! Russia!" at us non-stop since November of 2016. And yet Obama was hot and horny to destroy our nuclear deterrent in 2012 and Hillary Clinton engineered the sale of a significant portion of our uranium stockpile to Putin and his cronies in exchange for $400 million in booze money. Related, Daniel Greenfield has an interesting take on the hacking of the DNC vis a vis Bernie Sanders, that great Yankee-Doodle-Dandy flag-waving proud American (not). Yes, Trump is a nemesis but for yesterday's unforgivable sin of exposing the Democrat-Media's complicity in this Russia collusion myth, and the ignoring of the real election shenanigans committed by the Democrats (can you saw Debbie-Wasserman Awan?), they don't care if America is ripped apart (hell that's their goal) so long as Trump is destroyed.

Schmucks like Steve Cohen, Chris Cuomo and John Brennan - the REAL traitor and perhaps the one who has been leading the coup against the President - who shout "treason," and "act of war" are playing with fire. They are actively undermining our foreign policy from their positions (undeserved as they are) of power and influence, and stoking the potential for violence at home as well as confrontation abroad. Thankfully, Putin knows that they are a collective joke. He all but openly busted a gut at that AP reporter yesterday who asked if he had dirt on PDT. Still, this is hardly a matter for levity.

My gut tells me that barring anything unforeseen (and I've had that caveat now for 18 months or more) the Dems are going to lose in November and lose big. How will the average mind-numbed droog react? Considering that the standard operating procedure of the Democrat-Left is to now cast aspersions on every electoral or judicial loss as "collusion" or "theft" or "illegitimate," there can only be one avenue left to them, and that is violence. Vermin like Steve Cohen ought to realize this. Hell, I'm getting the very uneasy feeling that they do. All too well.

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

4 What happened yesterday in Helsinki is a serious situation that really needs to be resolved.


We
had an American President, rightly so, take the word of a foreign power
over the word of his LE and IC apparatus, a foreign power that for the
last 75 years has been designated as our greatest Geo-political foe.

Our
LE, IC and political establishment of both parties have coalesced
around and fixed the narrative that the Russians interfered in the 2016
election and this interference aided the current President.


The
current President essentially said his LE and IC were wrong, compromised
and politicized, on foreign soil no less, he also attacked his
Presidential rival and the Democrats.

This is a lot more serious a situation than people realize.

30 If the media and the deep state win in their destruction of Trump, Russia wins. We are facing an existential crisis decades in the making. When Obama failed to deploy missile defense to Poland, when he told Medvedev that he would be more flexible after the next election, when he did nothing about Ukraine, there was nary a peep. When Hillary's husband was paid $500,000 by the Russians for a one-hour speech, when the Clintons took over $120 million from Russian interests, all of these same idiots were mum. There is zero evidence released to date that Trump in any way colluded with Russia or Putin. Logic dictates that this is just one more attempt to spin everything in the worst possible way to destroy Trump, especially ahead of the midterms.

39 I don't understand why people view Russia as an "enemy".

Back when it was part of the Soviet Union, that was different. They were diametrically opposed to our capitalist society and fought to bring communism to an ever-increasing sphere of countries.

Now, they are a capitalist country. Cowboy Capitalists. Intense, "Deadwood" capitalists, like the wild west.

The rule of law is still catching up with their business practices and it's everybody for themselves and buyer beware. Just like we were some decades past.

When the Soviet Union dissolved, Russia suffered a tremendous ego blow. It needed a strong leader who would restore their sense of self worth and project an oversized picture of Russia as it fit into the new world. Putin did that.

I travel to Russia and do business there. Everyone I have ever talked to likes the U.S. and wants Russia to be more like the U.S. They don't view us as the enemy. Competitors, yes. Enemy, no.

Between the democrats and the media, they are ready to pull out the launch codes and go to war. Let's hope the sane people on our side keep supporting Trump.

88 After reading the indictment, it is clear that any organized russian hacking was to help their fellow communist Bernie Saunders. The indictment quotes the Russian alleged conspirators belief that Trump had only a 25 percent chance, but that Sanders communist had a real shot


Now that makes sense to me. Getting a socialist communist elected as president- what an opportunity for Russia!

That being said, Trump was set-up for failure by his 'trusted' IC and DOJ who intentionally issued these indictments while Trump was out of the country and mere days before the Putin summit.

Could they not wait ?

133 Remember when Obama smirked at Romney during one of the debates when Romney said Russia was one of our greatest enemies (or words to that effect), and then Obama snarkily mocked Romney by saying "the 1980's called, they want their policy back" and all the lefties laughed and laughed and laughed at how naive and out-of-touch Romney was.

Because the smart set all recognized that Russia wasn't a real threat to the U.S. and hadn't been for years.

And yet here we are, just a few years later, and the left is hyperventilating over Trump saying essentially the same thing that Barry said to Romney during the debate.

Maybe Trump should have just offered Putin one of Hillary's old "reset" buttons instead? That would fix everything!

Honestly, I have no clue what was really said and what was bad about it. The daily outrage of all things has overwhelmed any objectiveness. While I will trust you it was bad, the idea that a press conference leads to impeachment is so silly that I have no desire to take a deep look. That being said, it seems like this is the bad of Trump that you get with the good. His style and manner pays dividends in other areas, but sometimes you may get bad press conferences. Again, just a press conference. In any event, I'm sure a new outrage will surface any day - or a return to a previous outrage. All I know is that during prior administrations the left took the following positions:

- are intelligence agencies are not to be trusted,
- russia is morally equivalent to us
- russia is no longer a threat


But of course now, everything is different.

To be quite honest, I don't think most of the country is even paying attention to this latest outrage. Too busy working, watching the stock market, etc.

"For instance, we can bring up the Mr. Browder in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia. They never paid any taxes, neither in Russia nor in the United States, and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent huge amount of money, $400 million as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that’s the personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself, but the way the money was earned was illegal."

I'm sure our 'media' will find this uninteresting.

The salient point to remember about yesterday's presser is that, however historically bad Russia/Putin are/were, and whatever "meddling" Russia and/or Russians may have done in 2016, the salient point is that our own national LE and IC apparatus as well as the Democrat party and media are more of a threat to the republic than Russia is at present.

We know it. Trump knows it.

And if you're going to start attacking him for his verbiage and that Putin "looked" better on camera, then I think you lost the argument.

Not buying any of it. Trump was on the mark, if not brilliant. He upset the entire applecart of fake suppositions and performed publicly as a President should. The "intelligence" on this matter was cooked from the beginning. (And Trump clarified that he trusted his own people, not the IC ancien regime.) He also made clear to an international audience (supported by Putin's comments) the Democrat/MSM/Left narratives. This is why the Left has gone insane.

Doesn't mean you have to step into the a trap. I saw it all live. The fact remains Putin and Russia are our enemy. The are an autocratic State with most of their weapons pointed at us. Many of their actions are antithetical to us, our allies, and our interests. But yes we have to deal with them, for those same reasons, but Putin is not our friend and I would not believe one word he said without 100% verification and then I would have doubts.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at July 17, 2018 08:14 AM (Lg2h/)

172 I don't care if Mueller's a hero or not if he spent the fifty years afterwards joining in in the omerta about what we did to the Vietnamese, selling them down the river to the Russians to be killed, worked to death, and ground down into serfdom. He also joined in the omerta about: the Obama administration's sellout of personnell data from the OPM to China ... the steady and continuous deindustrialization of this country over the past thirty years, under both Bushes, the Clintons, and Obama, that is a real threat to our security... When Obama chose the anniversary of the betrayed Warsaw Rebellion to placate the Russians and cancel the missile defense program in Poland, Mueller chose Omerta.

About all this? YOU chose Omerta.

I don't know how to say stuff like what I have to say now... but I have known a lot of people who were heroes but didn't talk about it when they were asked "What did you do during the war?" Three in particular I knew are dead now.

None of them got to be Official Big Damn Heroes, though, even though at least one of them (and maybe all three) died from the long term effects of their service. None of them got to be Hero Senators or anything like that. I guess that's reserved for the ones willing to engage in the Omerta.

Fuck fuck fuckity fuck.

Yeah, Trump definitely should have lied in Russia in order to cover our IC and LE in unearned glory. The one thing he told us that he would not do.

Americans have become so addicted to lies and bullshit that when they don't get their fill , they have withdrawals.

I see no reason why Trump should believe "his" LE and IC if they
told him the sun rose in the east. They are demonstrably corrupt from
top to bottom and serve no other master than the Democrat party.



And as far as I'm concerned, he should do a hell of a lot more than
just "criticize" Democrats - he has a prima facie case to start locking
several of them up for insurrection.

Posted by: Chi-Town Jerry at July 17, 2018 07:49 AM (5tSKk)



This over the top indignation at Trump meeting with Putin is an
attempt to obfuscate the facts and wash the public slate of their
actions.

Didn't Rosenkrantz OK the firing of Comey and then use the firing of Comey to open the Mueller investigation?
Didn't Comey and Rosenstern say they told Trump about
the Pee Pee Dossier and then have to admit that they didn't? You
know..... admit that they hatched a plot to set him up?
Didn't the FBI admit to having spies in the Trump campaign who were
injecting information into the campaign in the hopes of using that
information to justify FISA warrants to spy on the Trump himself and
then lie about it stating that they were "helping" protect the Trump
campaign?

Does Andy Vanderbilt not see this? Does he have an explanation that doesn't make him look like a GQ pretty boy who gets by on his diminishing good looks and the support of the populars in the media.


Didn't an "ex" CIA operative stand next to Andy Vanderbilt and suggest that the CIA, FBI and Senate should form a "sort of shadow government"? Are there really any "ex" spies? Or is the "ex" just a cover so the CIA can get their opinions into the press legitimately? Ex spies should retire to the Villages, not agitate for domestic coups.



As if! Fer sure Andy. At this point Andy has melded into a copy of Hugo Boss and Josef Goebbels. (Yeah I went there). Brings a new meaning to the concept of Fashionista.



Why should Trump trust them any more than Putin.


We should ask ourselves, who's actions does Putin support and why?

175 My gut tells me that barring anything unforeseen (and I've had that caveat now for 18 months or more) the Dems are going to lose in November and lose big. How will the average mind-numbed droog react?

--

My mind is going in two different directions on this. For the most part, I think you're right, JJ. I'm all out of adjectives and descriptors to adequately convey how off the freaking rails these people are in their rhetoric. To say it's batsh*t insane, unhinged, infantile, fantastical...it's simply not enough. They're rabid, caged animals, so bereft of logic and maturity. And we're on the precipice of extreme violence from them. You'd think and hope most normal people see this and are repulsed by it. And that's what has me hoping there will be a wipeout in November as throngs of voters move away from their madness.

Then again, I remember 2012 and the Jug Earred Won's reelection, wherein I vowed to never underestimate the stupidity of the American voter. Perhaps this relentless and maniacal cacophony from the media and others will finally start to brainwash enough people, ie "if you repeat a lie often enough..."

I don't know what to think, really. I'm feeling very uneasy just in witnessing these animals losing their s*** 24/7 non-stop. It's so depressing in the sense that they are my fellow countrymen. America United is really dead. We're not going to go back to the way it was and the way it should be. All that matters now is how much they're able to brainwash and deceive the masses in this ruthless game.

Perhaps his comment was aimed at the IC community directly, and not Americans in general.

He said something to the effect that Putin was "very strong" on the point that it was not the Russians. So maybe Putin showed him proof, or Trump wants the IC to think he was shown some proof. (Although I think Trump already knows the truth.)

In any event, HE KNOWS. And he wants the IC people to know he knows.

History Lesson - remedial refresher.

Lee Harvey Oswald shot Jack Kennedy who was President of the United States. Oswald was a communist sympathizer, if not an agent of the Russian Government. When Kennedy was shot, the Russian Government said 'we did not authorize' the assassination. Oswald went to Cuba (presumably as a free agent) where Castro explicitly said he wanted Kennedy dead.

When the Russian Government denied any involvement in the shooting of Kennedy, the political powers in the US took that denial at face value. To do otherwise would mean a war a nuclear war with Russia (and probably China).

Fast forward fifty years to present time. Tump meets Putin and Putin denies any official Russian Government involvement in 'meddling' in the US Election. Same scenario. Do you want to go to war with Russia?

The Democrats loudly proclaim that Trump wants to start a war, any war, with anyone, including Russia and yet, at the summit Trump declines to bully Putin, and the very same democrats who are afraid Trump will start WWII are screaming that Trump didn't start WWII.

The political left in the United States are insane.

"Justice Thomas said in one of his opinions last term that the SCOTUS is going to need to look at the issue of these district court judges thinking that they can issue orders creating new federal government policies for the entire country when they get a case before them in which there is a government policy with which they personally disagree.

The Trump administration needs to follow up on Thomas' prodding, ASAP. "

It's at a crisis level. The USSC actually has some administrative oversight here. Obviously Congress can do its job as well. The Administrative State obviously is engaged in an ongoing coup against our representative democracy and there has been very little pushback thus far.

239 The hysteria over the Helsinki meeting and press conference is on the one hand entertaining, watching supposedly sober influential people lose their Sweet Honey Iced Tea. On the other hand it is disturbing because these are influential people and by freaking out they can cause a heck of a lot of damage, or put things in motion that no one knows where they will end up. On the third hand, it is also informative - what exactly are they going bonkers about? Trump is not trusting everything the IC tells him? Once a healthy skepticism of IC claims was considered a good thing. That Trump is making a friendly relationship with Putin? As Dobbs asked - what do they want, a shooting war? An insult contest?

This is just early, but yeah, keep on eye on this as it develops because it is getting even more weird and no one knows weird like the Golden Scalp Weasel.

241 That Democrats political disagreements with the citizens have led them to actively subvert our government and intelligence apparatus, and use it as a vehicle to illegally undermine our president, is actually not even the worst part.

What we all witnessed yesterday vis a vis the open calls for treason, insurrection and sedition by many people including the former CIA Director, media and members of Congress is even more revealing. It aptly displays their utter contempt for republican democracy, constitution and the rule of law.
The very basis of our republic is underwritten by the idea that people can disagree, competing interests can coexist and in the end adhering to constitutional principle and the rule of law will provide a means of resolution, and ultimately acting in the interests of the public good.

This result is unfortunately not what the Democrat Party and their supporters seek. Conversely, they have surrendered to pursuits which undermine, obfuscate, subvert and destroy the very system to which they deceptively claim affection. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Our country has seen civil war, and many of us have witnessed its specter over the last 25 years. We remember, or we've seen the horrors of a nation, a people, tearing itself apart. For those who haven't, this seems to be some quaint notion, a means of realizing their innermost, and most diabolical desires. It is nothing of the sort and I for one, am not about to advocate or witness for it here.
If this is the means by which Democrats intend to litigate and resolve their disagreements, they should be barred from the very offices and halls of our government. This is not a philosophy of reason, but of despotism. It is a tyranny which our constitution was deliberately written to avoid and stand against.
I've grown tired of the incendiary, riotous calls of the liberal, extremist left and likewise their disregard for the rule of law and constitution. Now they want to go even further and replace democratic process with their personal predilections.Not here, not now, not ever and anyone who stands for this should face a citizenry who is renewed in purpose, steeped in constitution and resolved to ensure their fiendish, wicked ways are banished to the dustbin of history.
Apologies for going on too long, I've simply had my fill despotism from these subversives.

Should he have called him a lying Mongoloid russky right there?

As I said, what they talked about in private I'm sure varied from what was said to the press. Plus, it's called diplomacy.

Yes, Putin is as I stated above. But this is a public meeting and some cordiality is minimally called for. Plus let's not forget who started this whole Russia collusion thing and who is desperate to paint PDT into a corner.

I think he was fine. The reaction from all the wrong quarters just reinforces my belief in that.

I've got a feeling we're going to get heartily tired of the troll meme "Trump is a traitory traitor!" but it's out there. The Donald needs to do some clarifying, I think, because the MSM has succeeded in muddying the waters about what happened in Helsinki. I also think that this is a setup for some kind of action with respect to the intelligence community. The Donald likes to lay the groundwork this way: first make the critics crazy, then do something that makes them look bad. We'll see; maybe he just made a mistake. He's human, after all.

282 Tyrone Krause raised his right hand Friday at Naval Station Norfolk aboard the guided-missile destroyer Ramage to take the oath to become a Navy officer at the ripe age of 63.

Krause, the chief of cardio-thoracic surgery at Jersey City Medical Center, was commissioned as a commander after the Navy determined his 24 years of experience as a heart surgeon warranted a rank that typically takes 16 to 20 years to attain, the Virginian-Pilot reported.

Making the commissioning experience expontentially more memorable, though, was the officer swearing him in: Krauses own 27-year-old daughter, Ensign Laura Krause, who serves aboard the Ramage. The younger Krause then became the first officer her father saluted.

290 Point of order- 'second world' doesn't mean as much as it used to. See, the West or the Anglosphere (including Japan, depending on who you ask) was the First World, the Second World was the Soviet empire, and the Third World was (originally) everyone else-- battlegrounds and potential battlegrounds of the Cold War, of Democracy, The Enlightenment, Capitalism, and goodness generally and Communism and Evil.

So the meaning/implications of 'third world' (now meaning "shitholes") shifted, while 'first world' remained mostly intact, leaving the 'second world' adrift.

We need a better paradigm, is what I'm saying. Cold War terms aren't really cutting it these days, though sometimes a vague or inaccurate discriptor is good enough, or at least better than nothing.

Also, Russia's always been special or different-- it's (historically) sometimes European-ish, and sometimes hell-bent on doing their own thing and doing what they want, DAD, you can't stop me, DAD!

One thing I'm sure off ... all the massive militar, political, and intelligence power structures we built to fight the Cold War ain't going away quietly just because we won the Cold War.

They're just busy looking for a new enemy. They could have had it in Islam - but they didn't like the connotation of a War on Religion.

And for whatever reason - they don't want to take on the Chinese. I guess that leaves the Russians.

370 I don't worry about the TDS'rs, the press or the dying (D) party.

But I really believe that there is a massive presence within the conservative ranks that longs for the days of "Poppy" and "W" and "Billy" and "Barack", "congeniality" and "being presidential".
There is a fifth column of crypto-cuck-McCain-ocrats that will nag, berate and undermine PDT at every turn. The Obama-apologists. The "better Hillary than Trump!" voters.
"I'm a MAVERICK, brah. I'm independent, yo!"

They make conservative noises , but secretly they could care less that possibly the most conservative President in US History is in office and kicking ass.
All they want, just like the progtarded masses, is for everyone they encounter to proclaim how they were right and everyone else was WRONG.

"SEE SEE, I was right!! I showed you ALL!! TRUMP is Hitler!! You all should have listened to MEEEEE!!"

The TDS psychotics are bad enough. But they have rubber skin. You can spot them easy.

I believe this ... we've built a military based upon Force Projection ... because everywhere we were going to fight in the Cold War requires Force Projection. That was the name of the game when I was in - many moons ago.

Well - build something designed to Project Force - and folks are going to find a reason to Project Force - regardless of if Force needs to be Projected or not.

Just the nature of Man.

All true but...


American foreign policy for at least the last 75 years has been fixed around the notion that Russia is our greatest Geo-Political foe and is an existential threat to the US.


It's why we have the size military we do, it's why we have the nuclear arsenal we do, it's why we have an immense and metastasizing global spying apparatus, it the reason for NATO, etc.


In short, it's the reason d'e etre for the US military industrial complex and spy agencies.


Donald Trump signaled strongly during the election that he wanted better relations with Russia...

All of this and more may be true. You know what else he is though? A proud Russian nationalist who is working tirelessly for what he sees (rightly or wrong) as his country's best interest - putting those interests ahead of "the interests of the planet" and whatnot. He's also loathed by the globalists.

Sounds familiar.

That said, after working actively with the USSR to undermine the very fabric of this country, I'm more than a little hacked-off at the Democrats all of a sudden turning into Joe McCarthy before our very eyes; conveniently it seems, because we know if Felonius were POTUS right now they'd be cheering her handing over even more of our uranium to them for cold-hard-cash to the Clinton Crime Family, I mean Foundation.

433 the globalists are selling out America, and many countries have spies (they call them lobbyists) all over NY/DC bribing our politicians and getting their preferred outcome.

Russia wanted to "corner the uranium market" and only had to bribe Hillary. But "Hillary" spreads that money to all her foundation "workers". They are a mafia ... Mueller and Comey have protected her from prosecution for decades. Yet magically, there is Rosenstein/Mueller interfering in foreign policy, doing agitprop press conferences.

My understanding is Trump's sources are probably NSA military men fighting from within ... guys maybe like Flynn, that know of the vast corruption on the inside. The bureaucracy still runs DC, even when an appointment or two changes at the top. The DoJ is clearly compromised and on the attack.

They all covered up the pallets of cash to Iran, the UraniumOne (and Skolkovo) sellout for cash from Russia ... why would Trump trust any of them? Two year of covering up Hillary/Russia AND lying about Trump/Russia. The summit was a good place to make the point ... "The enemy is in the house" ... and they prefer war with Russia to a Trump win.

There is little doubt there was deep thinking (with Trump's real intel team, probably NSA) in what Trump said, and the MFM reaction was probably also rehearsed well in advance. Trump must know what is coming ... which should be the unmasking of many traitors and villains deep in our government, including DNI.

That sums up in a microcosm what we are facing from those infected with the leftist virus right now - they want to take down Trump and conservatives so much they are willing to destroy themselves to do so. That's true of Hollywood - and that's always true of the DC establishment. And probably most true of the GOPe. Look at those assholes. The Dems are destroying themselves and you still have idiots like Ryan and McCain and Romney attacking a Republican president in a mid-term year. I don't think there will be a blue wave, but if there is not a red one, it's because of the GOPe's own self-destructive stupidity.
When one side of the political spectrum is so enraged and insane that it is willing to destroy itself and bring down the country as well - well, shit, we have a problem.

(via a couple emails and openly declaring she was Russian)

And China ... half trillion a year trade deficit, buying up America and the world with the surplus, good friends with Hillary for decades.

Even little Pakistan seems to have Awan rummaging through whatever he wanted in congress emails.

Our deep state is only out to destroy Trump since he is not in the fascist global mafia. Some patriots on the inside are resisting. The MSM is probably full of CIA spies, coordinating the agitprop spewed by the hysterical loons. This is no small operation ... it is a global cabal of oligarchs that meets in places like CFR and decides our fate (disjointed as they may be).

But they did arrange pro-Trump agitprop before the election and anti-Trump protests afterwards. The size and effectiveness of both was negligible.

Cold, almost rain, north of 46 degrees latitude.
I've lost my enthusiasm for landscaping.
Summer is half over and this stage of my project is unfinished. I have a terrible time sticking to my completion dates.

I should ...
I should ...

Let me look at the weather forecast.
Hot and humid should be back Thursday.
I'll work outside then.

Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. I am that mad.

I tend to agree because it was Adm. Rogers who was then head of the NSA that tipped Trump off to the FBI's and Obama Administration spying. And nowhere in all of this "Get Trump" do you find the NSA. And who has likely scooped up all of the recordings and texts our super-spies have sent out? The NSA.

547 Good morning all. Thanks for the MR, JJ. Btw, JJ, I was wrong the other day about Cohen sexting his son's girlfriend, but it's still creepy. After researching it, Cohen was actually tweeting a young sexy model during B.O.'s SOTU address (NS) and when Propublica published Cohen's ill timed "ilu" tweet to her, Cohen quickly deleted it and claimed she was just his long lost daughter. But when that hit the press, the young sexy model's real father came forward and had a DNA test that proved Cohen was not the model's father at all, so Cohen was just a lying, creepy POS.

America United is really dead. We're not going to go back to the way it was and the way it should be. All that matters now is how much they're able to brainwash and deceive the masses in this ruthless game.

The left is going to watch poll numbers on Trump with a gimlet eye. If they see any sign that their hysteria is having an effect on his favorability, they will double down. They've been crying wolf since the election, the End of the World is at hand, and yet the world is still rotating on its axis and people have more money in their pockets. I doubt this will hurt Trump. Whatever they fling at him gets stuck to them.

Regarding your summary of the U.S. Russia summit and the utterly unhinged reaction of the left and its doppelgšnger media: exceptionally well put, Mr. Sefton.

Also, I share your hunch that the Dems are going to flame-out in the midterms.
But admittedly, I'm a bit hedged/cautious in that gut-assessment.
I sure hope that's what happens.
But I want to manage my expectations so that I am psychologically prepared for any possible surprise.

The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it.” Ronald Reagan

Quote II

“The frustrating thing is that those who are attacking religion claim they are doing it in the name of tolerance, freedom and openmindedness. Question: Isn’t the real truth that they are intolerant of religion? They refuse to tolerate its importance in our lives.” Ronald Reagan

Quote III

“America is, and always will be, a shining city on a hill.” Ronald Reagan

*****

Before taking his own life, Anthony Bourdain gave a wide ranging interview. Including his thoughts on Bill & Hillary.

“Bill Clinton, look, the bimbo eruptions—it was f---ing monstrous. That would not have flown today. [Bill Clinton is] a piece of s---. Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting, and the way that he — and she [Hillary] — destroyed these women and the way that everyone went along, and, and are blind to this!”

Microsoft has helped innovate facial recognition software. Now it's urging the US government to enact regulation to control the use of the technology.
In a blog post, Microsoft (MSFT)President Brad Smith said new laws are necessary given the technology's "broad societal ramifications and potential for abuse."

He urged lawmakers to form "a government initiative to regulate the proper use of facial recognition technology, informed first by a bipartisan and expert commission."

Elon Musk, Tesla, hit one milestone.

Looks like he is hitting another one.

In a series of tweets responding to Unsworth’s criticism, Musk referred to Unsworth’s “British expat guy who lives in Thailand” as “sus” (suspicious) and said he had never seen him at the cave complex. Musk challenged Unsworth’s accounting of the water levels in the cave, then got even angrier, explicitly calling Unsworth a “pedo guy” and saying he would prove the device’s utility by, uh, sending more people into the cave with it.

Government, universally inept.

The Canadian Army’s newest radar system can’t be linked in to NATO’s air defence networks but the military says it won’t cancel the project worth more than $200 million.

The Canadian Army is just now taking delivery of the first Israeli-built radars which are expected to be declared operational by the end of the summer.

But the Czech military has put on hold its deal for the same radars after NATO informed it the systems couldn’t be used because the equipment was built by a non-alliance member and couldn’t be integrated into NATO systems.

Iraq War veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. knows his Constitutional rights, so he’s not going to let anyone confiscate his guns without a proper warrant and due process.

Cottrell, a disabled Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” was working at a New Jersey Wawa store on June 14 when his wife called him to say that police officers were at their home demanding to seize his guns. The cops did not have a search warrant.

Discretion, always the better part of valor. Just ask this Genius Award Winner.

Please forgive me for gently correcting you...

But you've not yet had your "last conversation" with your beloved Faye.

You WILL see her again.

My prayer for you though sir, is that the years between now and then bring you across the finish line as a celebrant and victorious, rather than as a permanent mourner, broken, spent and withered.

You've got a couple-three decades ahead, wherein ass must be kicked, horizons must be crossed, and most importantly, the elixir of Human Friendship must be quaffed frequently, deeply and with gusto.

I've no doubt you'll arrive as The Victor... I've seen your courage and heart here now for months, and you're one of the best of us.

And always shall be, too, I'm sure.

50 Iraq War veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. knows his Constitutional rights, so he's not going to let anyone confiscate his guns without a proper warrant and due process.
Cottrell, a disabled Army veteran who served three tours during "Operation Iraqi Freedom," was working at a New Jersey Wawa store on June 14 when his wife called him to say that police officers were at their home demanding to seize his guns. The cops did not have a search warrant.


Tell me again how the cops are all going to protect the people and their Constitutional rights.

In my hometown a fat, gay guy solicited oral sex from a Mexican guy.

When he got him secluded, he and his Mexican buddy shanked the gay guy a couple of times and took his money.

I don't really think that counts as being attacked for being queer, but I've heard it's a common tactic for guys to leave with queers under the auspices of sex and then beat 'em down and take their money.

127 Tommy Bolin was briefly in Deep Purple for one album, after a stint in the James Gang. He went on to put out two solo albums before fucking up and failing to make it to the age of 26, the magical age for dead rock musicians, at the age of 25 due to, go figure, a drug overdose.

Here's his 1st solo album, Teaser:

128 I have been urging this for the longest time, but don't you think it would be a good idea for Trump to go on television and make a prime time address to lay out why he says the things he does regarding the Mueller Investigation and his mistrust of the intelligence agencies? Remember, most people don't hear his side so this would give him a chance to speak directly to the them. A prime time address, not a rally in front of s friendly crowd-- or a series of tweets. He should do it soon.
Like this week.

That's kinda the risk you take when you go off with a stranger to have sex. I didn't skank around in bars when I was young because I'm not a skank, but I knew women who thought nothing of picking up guys in bars and taking them home or going to their place. And I used to say, "How the hell do you know he's not some psycho?" "Oh, he seemed nice..." Like you can get a good read on somebody after a half hour of shouting in his ear at a bar. Ted Bundy seemed nice too.
I had a friend in college whose roommate brought some guy home with her. He didn't rape or beat her or slice her up. He just waited until she fell and then robbed both her and her roommate blind. Took their wallets, cash jewelry, an expensive camera...My friend was as furious with her roommate for bringing the guy home as she was with the thief himself.

There's a PBS series about Sir Edmund Hillary. It's on now, but I saw an earlier episode where he was young not-Sir Edmund Hillary. And he had an Australian accent.

I was like, you pissy Brits don't think we know anything. You think we'll just take an Aussie for a Brit because they talk funny. And then he was meeting mountain climbing guys and they'd say "hey, you want to climb a mountain with us" and the next thing you know they'd be on some Alpine slope.

And I was like, where was the Channel crossing and the train ride? This is a dumb show.

194 Hey everybody. Could use a little advice tonight.

Long story short: I'm fed up with my family. This summer, I finally have the wherewithal to take a short vacation at Morongo, which I believe I've told you all about. Part of the reason I want to go there, is because they have a 'lazy river' pool that my niece and nephew absolutely loved, when we first visited there about five years ago. (The niece and nephew are now 13 and 17, btw.)

Anyway, I've had to postpone the thing TWICE now because just when we get near the date to go, my family members suddenly always come up with reasons why they either can't go, or at best can't stay the entire two nights. (And again, just *two* nights. I'm not insisting we stay at this place for a week.)

Anyway, only a week away from my first postponed date, I now just had to change it again. So now it's three weeks away again. And I am more or less convinced that said family members will become slippery again and there will be problems with the *new* dates to go. Unfortunately the dates I just set are the *last* dates/times it'll be likely I can still even host this vacation.

So part of me is wondering what I should do, should family back out on me again. Go by myself? Cancel and just go to Pechanga on my own? Save the money and plan for something bigger and better, BY MYSELF, next year?

But it's so frustrating I can't depend on my family. When my sisters or their husbands make plans, THEY STAY MADE. When *I* make plans, no one can come and I always have to change everything over and over again. I don't feel respected, to say the least.

Anyway thanks for the rant, and any advice is welcomed.

I've thought about that phrase a lot over the years, and I realize that there is one big exception to the rule that we all recognize, even if we feel kind of ashamed to admit.

The ends DO justify the means when survival, of yourself of those who you are sworn to protect, are at risk. Not just well being, or an advantage, but the real Life and Death situation. That's why police can shoot to kill, that's why you are justified in using deadly force in self defense, that's why the US was justified in using 2 nuclear weapons to end WW2.

When survival is truly on the line, then yes, the ends do justify the means. But only when survival is truly on the line.

207 I had a friend in college whose roommate brought some guy home with her. He didn't rape or beat her or slice her up. He just waited until she fell and then robbed both her and her roommate blind. Took their wallets, cash jewelry, an expensive camera...My friend was as furious with her roommate for bringing the guy home as she was with the thief himself.

------------------

I had a similar experience, as a guy though. Brought this chick home, the usual, fell asleep. Fortunately, at that time in my life, I slept pretty lightly.

I felt her get up and get out of bed, but kept my eyes closed. About 15 seconds later, I opened them a little and saw her with my pants in her hand, about to go through the pockets. Cleared my throat loudly, and she about crapped herself. Started stammering about how she was looking for a pen to write me a note, as she was leaving.

So, watched her get dressed, escorted her to my door, closed and locked it. No idea how she got home, didn't care.

Not exactly my most shining moment of brilliance.

I suspect it was at least partially because I'd been "diagnosed" as a genius, so I thought I was smart enough to render my lack of wisdom inconsequential.

Yeah, but I don't see that as a morally ambiguous scenario or even legally ambiguous.

A soldier shoots or eliminates an immediate threat because harm is imminent and the will of his opponent is known and options are limited.

It would be harder to justify, in my mind, eliminating a theorized, potential threat that might be dealt with in various legal ways.

273 X-ray, your dad sounds like my dad.

For him it wasn't a vacation without camping, preferably in the most rustic campground he could find. It was only because of my then-raging OCD when I was a young teenager (about 1978-82) that we started going to places with luxuries like flushable toilets (which I still wouldn't use because, ick, germs!!).

Posted by: qdpsteve at July 16, 2018 11:18 PM (km8m2)

274 I'm sorry the vacation isn't going well. that sucks so much - you look forward to it for so long....

I did.. a year or more and even then I kept thinking something could happen and I wouldn't be able to go. And called my mom yesterday and she's not doing well. PT fucked her left leg and she's in pain now. No rental car. Daughter coming in with 2 of my grandkids and great grandbaby and this whole condo is tile and glass. Then an 8 hour drive to ABQ with them.. spend 2 days and come back to AZ, then hubby's cousin (who I can barely tolerate) coming in on the 26th to ruin the rest of our vacation. Never. Again.

That's fair. I watched it with No. 1 Son, who loved it, but he of course doesn't remember it.

As someone who remembers it it was mostly "oh yeah, that happened".

I will say that Allison Janney was inspired as Tonya's mom.

My Dad was too, but fortunately he was a workaholic. So, instead of going with us, he dropped my Mom and the 4 of us kids off at Grandma's lake house in Wisconsin every summer (grew up in Suburban Chicago).

I shudder to think what those trips would have been like if he had remained with us. We actually all had a great time in those summers.

Make your plans, and don't change 'em.

Quail or waffle now though, and they'll just keep on keepin' on with the disrespect.

Sometimes, earning respect requires hardness, not niceness.

On my bucket list, btw.... is to take a cruise alone... just so I don't have to "please" anyone else's wishes to hit tourist rip-off shops or horrid, vapid "Broadway" shows in the Ship's Theatre, etc.

I just wanna highly leverage the cigar lounge, or use the hell out of a poolside chaise, get some writing done and just generally chill on my own clock for a few days.

Certainly, family is important. But so is your well-being.

309 Christopher Anvil wrote a novel based around the aftermath of a nuclear war with Russia, and the Russians rebounded faster with mothballed equipment to try to take North America, with the same problems the Brits had against to colonists.

But the big denouement was the discovery that the war was a set up. The Russians had developed a wonder-crop for forage that turned out to spread so fast it would choke out every other plant and was devastating the grain fields, and was threatening to spread beyond Europe and Asia and starve the world. The US had developed an AI that was bent on world domination. So the two superpowers conspired to nuke each other into the stone age to save the world.

It wasn't his best work but it was very thought provoking. I suppose he understood that the guy who s#*ts on you is not necessarily your enemy and the guy who pulls you out is not necessarily your friend.

I wonder if Putin is hemmed in from all sides by his post-soviet apparatchiks as much as Trump is by our deep state.

315 Two local radio guys recently had segmnts where they read responses from listeners they had asked for stories about their worst vacations ever. The replies were horrific but also entertaining (if you weren't the one who had to suffer though the vacation.) One I remember was a woman who went on a vacation with her grandpa when she was 10. He was on some sort of meds for intestinal problems but that didn't keep him from buying a whole box of eclairs and eating most of them in one sitting. Then he crapped his pants and had his granddaughter wash out his khakis and underwear in the hotel sink. I was laughing like hell, and also wondering what the hell kind of grandpa does that. At any rate, I've had some miserable vacations, but I never had to wash someone else's poop out of their underwear, so it's all good.

We had a canoe camping tradition when my kids were young and the marriage was falling apart. By we, I mean I and a fishing buddy and his family.

One year it was me and the boys and their family, the next my wife joined us for half of it, the next it was both full families the whole time.

Oddly, that last trip was the most awkward. Aleksandar's (that's a made up but accurate name) idea of canoe camping was to break camp first thing in the morning and see how much river we could cover before twighlight.

Nancy's (that's her real name) idea was to paddle around and look at the beavers and hey isn't it nice to be on the water.

My task was to hold these two poles together.

Yep. I was reluctant to try it because it seemed like hippie dippie shit, and it's kinda expensive. Wasted a lot of time in needless pain.

The THC/CBD seems to work best. But the THC stuff does pack a (mild) buzz, so you don't want to use it at work, or if you have a job with UAs. CBD-only is nearly as effective though.

If you're in the Denver area, check out Greenfield's at Mississippi and Raritan. It's in the hood, but everything they sell is ridiculously cheap. Most places sell my brand for 45 but they do it for 30.

If they schedule something, I make time to go with them as well.

I'm not one to hand out advice on that subject. I stopped talking to/seeing my family around 10 years ago, except for my Mom who died five years ago. I got tired of their bullshit and even my Mom understood why though it didn't make her happy. I haven't felt troubled one iota and apparently neither are they. Life, though certainly not easy, is much healthier with them out of my life. I just wish I had done it decades ago.

362 309 Kindltot

The Steel, the Mist, and the Blazing Sun (1980) by Christopher Anvil.

He is one of my favorite SF authors. Lots of humor, and the Interstellar Patrol is the outfit I would want to join. The rerelease of his short stories was a blessing.

Posted by: NaCly Dog at July 16, 2018 11:48 PM (hyuyC)

363 309 Christopher Anvil wrote a novel based around the aftermath of a nuclear war with Russia, and the Russians rebounded faster with mothballed equipment to try to take North America, with the same problems the Brits had against to colonists.

But the big denouement was the discovery that the war was a set up. The Russians had developed a wonder-crop for forage that turned out to spread so fast it would choke out every other plant and was devastating the grain fields, and was threatening to spread beyond Europe and Asia and starve the world. The US had developed an AI that was bent on world domination. So the two superpowers conspired to nuke each other into the stone age to save the world.

It wasn't his best work but it was very thought provoking. I suppose he understood that the guy who s#*ts on you is not necessarily your enemy and the guy who pulls you out is not necessarily your friend.

I wonder if Putin is hemmed in from all sides by his post-soviet apparatchiks as much as Trump is by our deep state.

420 Is the real reason for what the FBI/DOJ has done and is doing what CNN is now calling for; an actual physical coup with the knowledge that the public have been saturated with negative press about Trump for 2 years and will thus be looked on as a good thing?

There's been enough collusion with the press by the FBI/DOJ and Other IC for this to have been generated from the top. I'm sure the press needed little encouragement.

I can only say that if they did I think that would be the start of the 2nd Civil War.

Not like it's been speculated as a war between political parties but a direct clash between the Forces Controlled from DC against outraged citizens.
