The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

In the last analysis, Kennedy was surely right. People who see the policies they have voted for rejected again and again, by the very elites they defeated, will inevitably turn to other means to preserve what they have.

The "yellow vest" protests in Paris show us that.Patrick J. Buchanan


Quote II

“It’s important to tell the story of where we’ve been and what others are doing as well because we look at, for example, Germany, and how they’ve been able or they’re attempt to try to heal after the Holocaust. Germany paid reparations and they went through that process and they had that truth-telling process. And until America tells the truth about itself, we’re not going to heal.” Rep. Loony-Tune Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)


Quote III

The possibility that children’s past-life statements may be fantasies independent of any parental influence merits further attention as well. Can preexisting GNC lead a child to report past-life memories specifically as a member of a different sex, as if playing out gender nonconforming tendencies in fantasy? Several points argue against this possibility. First, although it is impossible to rule out that in some of these cases the child’s statements and behaviors may be rooted in fantasy, in more than half of our cases the idiosyncratic details of the past life have been found to match the life of an actual deceased individual. When limiting our analysis to such cases only, we find an equally strong association between GNC and memories of a life as a member of a different sex.”International Journal of Sexual Health


Quote IV

Although Hogan doesn't have much of a national profile, it's less of a stretch than you might think. Hogan's constituency isn't made up primarily of Trump fans....In other words, Hogan doesn't stand to lose much politically by taking on the president." The Bulwark's Andrew Egger

The Catholic students from Covington, KY are not the only victims of anti-religious bigotry. So is Mr. Gordon Giampietro, an attorney from Milwaukee, WI.

EXCLUSIVE: White House Kills Nomination Of Milwaukee Federal Judge Nominee Because Of
Baldwin’s Opposition To His Catholic Views

I have learned that the White House has informed prominent Milwaukee attorney Gordon Giampietro
he will not be re-nominated for a vacant position on the federal bench in Milwaukee. Giampietro has
been the target of a “blue slip” from Democratic Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin who has criticized
Giampietro’s statement of support of Roman Catholic teachings on same sex marriage and birth
control. Giampietro is a practicing Catholic.

Following Baldwin’s opposition last year, the five Catholic bishops in Wisconsin wrote Baldwin a letter
asking her to reconsider and called for the confirmation of Giampietro. Giampietro has said Baldwin’s
comments were an attack on his Catholic faith. A “blue slip” is a Senate procedure that allows a senator
to block a judicial nominee from his or her state. It is not a law but a long-standing practice of the
senate. Sources tell me Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsay Graham of South Carolina will not
budge on Giampietro because of Baldwin’s blue slip.


Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is a despicable bigot.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) forgot to drink his testosterone.

NBC (Nothing But Crap) has a conflict of interest. No wonder why NBC has sunk to gutter level, they have 400 million reasons for Buzzfeed to succeed.

Conflict of interest? What conflict of interest?

Who knew that Buzzfeed and the peacock network, NBC, had a cozy relationship to the tune of about 400 million dollars? Not many it seems.

After a weekend where the kindest thing you can say about the press is that they “messed” all over themselves like a brand new puppy after Muller corrected Buzzfeed and kids with MAGA hats at the March for Life were vilified for smiling, comes this lil nugget from Fox News.

The 9th Circus Court of Appeals once again backs government over the citizenry.

Late last week, the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit published an opinion (PDF) stating that California's regulation of fuel sales based on a lifecycle analysis of carbon emissions did not violate federal commerce rules.

California amends rules to push vehicles toward hydrogen, electricity, biofuel
Since 2011, California has had a Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program, which requires fuel sellers to reduce their fuel's carbon intensity by certain deadlines. If oil, ethanol, or other fuel sellers can't meet those deadlines, they can buy credits from companies that have complied with the standard.

The right to carry a concealed weapon in Washington has been on the books since 1961. Just now Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib (D-WA) is concerned about these dangerous people.

Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib did not preside at the governor's address to a joint session of the Legislature on Tuesday because he felt vulnerable in the House chamber, where people can carry concealed weapons in the public galleries.

"There is no specific threat to me. There is no specific threat we know of, period," he said before the governor's speech. "It's about the policy."

White Couple Who Identify as Black Are Sure Their Baby Will Come Out Black, Too

“If it’s milk chocolate or a little bit lighter, it doesn’t matter.”
A white German couple who had artificially darkened their skin said that they’re expecting to have a black baby.

For most of her life model Martina Big was fair of both hair and skin. But in 2017 she went on the British morning show “This Morning” to declare that not only does she identify as an “African black woman,” but she has been getting tanning injections to become properly dark.

“In the past it was blonde Barbie with white skin but now it is [an] extreme exotic Barbie,” she told Barcroft TV at the time.

2) If RBG does leave the court and we get a decent replacement, would it be worth it for the Supreme Court to invest in a big "OVERTURNED" rubber stamp? It would save a ton of time when dealing with decisions from the 9th Circuit.

I can't parse that Buchanan quote. How can the elites who have been defeated reject the polices people have been voting for?

Voters are voting for a candidate that promises certain policies ... but then I get lost, because the elite (candidates) have been defeated by the voters?

97 Sky gazers at Ponte Vedra Beach were watching the rare lunar eclipse known as a super blood wolf moon on Sunday night when the high tide crept in, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office confirmed Monday.

"Known"? Known by whom?

When I was a child back in the 20th Century it was called a LUNAR ECLIPSE.

Do I take that segment at the top to mean that "past life" nonsense is being used to justify tranny-type child abuse? If I am reading that right, are these people for real? And the "past life" story from children - children who are (like most are) imaginative, creative, and attempt to synthesize their environment - is being accepted more or less at face value? And because about half of the stories can be mapped (not sure how the tortured the mapping is) onto some real person they could find, it means that "gender non-conforming" children are actually reverting to their *real* sex from a prior life through some kind of bungled sex-swapped reincarnation?

Please tell me I have this all desperately wrong, and that this isn't the nexus of stupid and evil in academic robes.

I used to have a recurring dream when I was very young about the time me and my two siblings were together before any of us were born. We were babies in three bassinets all in a row in a little cottage. Very peaceful and calm. Birds chirping, sunshine, flowers peeking in at the front window. One of the things we discussed was the order in which we would be born. A really nice man would show up every now and then (Jesus?) to see how we were doing. My brother left, then at some point my sister left, then I guess I left. There was a sense of timelessness about it. I used to try and tell everyone my dream but I couldn't articulate it very well.

168 "Germany paid reparations and they went through that process and they had that truth-telling process. And until America tells the truth about itself, we're not going to heal."


So we are finally going to hear how Lincoln was the first Republican president, and the Republican party was founded on freeing the slaves, and how the KKK was the militant arm of the Democrat party after the CW, and how all the lynchings were done by Democrats, and how a higher percentage of Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of '64 than Dems and how the patron saint of the Democrat party, Margaret Sanger, pushed legalized abortion to exterminate the blacks, and how the NRA was created in part to help freed blacks protect themselves from the KKK and how . . .

Continued for 50 pages of history America doesn't know about how evil the Democrats have been for 200 years . . .

Somehow I don't think this issue is going to pan out as well as AoC thinks it will.

Yeah, I mentioned that in the last thread. Socialism is a walk in the park compared to some of the things they've gone through over the centuries.

But some countries like Russia, China, and Cambodia, which saw not only massive killing of people who opposed socialism, but wholesale erasure and rewriting of history, I'm not so sure about. I don't see how you come back from that. Those people and nations are permanently changed.

The "yellow vest" protests in Paris show us that.Patrick J. Buchanan'

I have not read the full piece, but this seems poorly written and reasoned to me.

Buchanan seems to be saying:
1) The people voted against these measures.
2) The elites did them anyway.
3) The people are pissed off.
4) The French protests are an example.

While this theorem may be true here, a lot of the French people voted for the very same people who said they were going to do just what they did. They did it because they feared being called racist for voting for more 'extreme' (as they saw it) candidates. That they are now pissed off that their leaders are doing exactly what they said they were going to do when these guys voted for them is kind of stupid, actually.

I can see where the French protesters are coming from, but I would never have voted for Macron in the first fucking place. So you have sewn, so shall you reap. Suck it up buttercup and fricking vote different next time. But they won't, will they?

No. Lot like West Virginia. Marquette County votes 2 to 1 democrat because of the University and United Mine workers.

Rest of the UP Counties went for Trump.
Downstate, the State Capital and Detroit metro went to Hillary. (Another University in the State Capital, plus government workers.) Overall, Michigan went for Trump, but the Democrats took the governorship with a white female candidate. I think the GOP candidate got smeared but I didn't follow the local stuff.

I've always said Trump is/was democrat and drew a lot of support from the middle of the spectrum, especially Reagan Democrats.

273 {i]It's apparent that all the limited history AOC knows is from Howard Zinn textbooks.

I had the misfortune of reading the chapter on slavery from Zinn's book.

In summary:

1) He only discusses the United States - there is no indication that slavery existed in any other country.

2) He talks a lot about the slave trade and the "United States" - he fails to mention that the Constitution banned the slave trade, and that slave importation predated the establishment of the United States.

3) He talks about how slavers went a thousand miles inland to capture slaves - he failed to note that it wasn't white people going a thousand miles inland to capture slaves, but other African tribes.

4) He throws out a guess on what percentage of slaves died on the Middle Passage - I think it was 30%. British records (which required ship manifests both departing Africa and arriving in the Americas) shows that the death rate among slaves was less than 10%, and that the death rates among the crews was higher (tropical Africa was not a healthy place for people who didn't grow up there).

It's all very carefully worded - he goes to great lengths to keep from explicitly lying, but he expertly gives the impression that the United States is uniquely complicit in the institution of slavery.

This is the history book most college students have been learning American history from for years.

Andrew Johnson was his running mate in 1864 to form a fusion and reconciliation ticket. Johnson was a Union man from Tennessee, and it was hoped this would promote reconciliation after the War was over, which was in sight.

Yep - no mention of the Arab slave trade, no mention of slavery elsewhere in the Americas, no mention of slavery among Native Americans.

Only American white people are responsible for slavery.

I recall that there is a Yale class where the professor takes a survey at the beginning of the term to see what the students believe - a substantial faction of the students believe that slavery existed only in the United States.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at January 23, 2019 10:17 PM (wYseH)

Slave importation did predate the establishment of the US. The Constitution did not ban the slave trade, but protected the slave trade for a period or years - a demand of the Southern states no doubt, and probably part of the reason for the 3/5ths clause, but I'm too lazy to check. After that period expired, the slave trade was banned.

So, while the slave trade was not explicitly banned by the constitution, the ability for the federal government to end it was made implicit.

About the time they realized what a conflict of interest that was.

The change came about when Aaron Burr became VP under Thomas Jefferson, even though the two men hated and loathed each other. And everyone suddenly realized that Burr had every reason in the world to try to find some way to stick a shiv in Jefferson's back and get rewarded with the Presidency.

Jefferson was careful, and Burr ended up killing Hamilton, after which he had to get out of Dodge quick.

pushed him on this.

I take that back. A quick check shows he did align with the RR's before running. I thought otherwise because he was not really that political before and during the war, not as idealistic as a RR. Of course he owned a slave at one point and his wife owned slaves I think until the end or pretty close. My bad.

441 Check out this quote from George Orwell:

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself - anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called."


Ok that's just fucking terrifying now. I wish the left would stop reading 1984 like it's an instruction manual.

Sheridan was certainly well known in the 19th century - he was one of Grant's closest confidants. When Grant retired from the Army, Sherman took over as Commanding General (equivalent to a modern 5 Star, and there were no Joint Chiefs in those days) When Sherman retired in 1883, Sheridan took over as Commanding General of all US Military forces, a post he held until his death in 1888.

You are correct. In his extensive memoirs, Cold Harber was the only battle where Grant openly admitted to having made a terrible mistake.

503 Imagine the lulz with Presiden Trump and VP Hillary.

That happened to Jerry Brown, first time he was governor - the voters elected a Republican lieutenant governor.

Jerry wanted to run for President, but there was a California law saying that the lieutenant governor became acting governor if the governor was out of state for a short time - I think 48 hours.

So Jerry would go to Iowa for a couple of days, and the lieutenant governor would start signing bills and appointing judges and other state positions. I think Jerry successfully went to court to stop this.

The first White House is still standing.

For some reason Canadians like to brag that "they" (even though Canada wasn't even a country yet) "burned down the White House".

Nope. British troops torched the interior, but the original building is still standing.

In fact, it became known as the White House after it was whitewashed to hide the soot stains from the attempted arson.

They also burned the Library of Congress on the same expedition, but somehow they don't seem as proud of that.

I've read a very good extensive comparison of the two. Orwell said that Government would get so strong that it would control all of our actions, and impose a vicious tyranny on us. (some countries have done that, obviously) Huxley said no way, we would find ways to make life so completely easy that we would all just sit around and do drugs and amuse ourselves to death on pointless and trivial pursuits, and that libraries and knowledge would disapear because no one would bother to read anything any more, because it involved actual effort, which no one would want to make any more. In the end, government would take over by default, but only because nobody else could be bothered to actually do anything.

I give the nod to Huxley.

I was a little bit of a retard when young but it turns out it was pure indoctrination.

OTOH, I took one of those "political" quizzes sometime ago and answered based on what I believed when in college years before and it turns out I've always been conservative. For example, I loved Rush Limbaugh's TV show on WWOR-NY in 1992 when I was but a teen. But I wasn't political, and fairly uninformed, and was easily lead to think stupid shit like if we are wary of muslims, it's exactly the same thing as Naziism.

579 The corruption of language as an avenue to power is an ancient evil, one that keeps coming back over and over again. It's why Confucius named the Rectification of the Language as one of the most important tasks that must be accomplished if society is to be reformed and corruption driven out.

Noam Chomsky is famous for instantly citing his sources as he speaks (lies). Chomsky can go on a rant and instantly back up his "facts" with sources.

But what they don't say is the validity of his sources are dubious because they're all bullshit leftists with opinions like himself.

In other words, Chomsky will back up his opinions, which he'll call 'facts.' with other people's opinions pretending to be facts.

657 One of the few satisfying moments of Soviet history is reading about the fall and executions of Yagoda and Yezhov, the heads of the NKVD/KGB, each of whom reportedly fell to his knees (IIRC) and begged - unsuccessfully - for his life.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at January 23, 2019 11:20 PM (WDxUi)


Yeah, Beria too.

I watched that flick, "The Death Of Stalin". They got Beria's execution all wrong. Beria didn't have a hasty trial and execution (like Coucescu). Beria was held in the lovely accommodations of the Lubyanka for about 6 months before he was finally shot. I guess they wanted to get all the dirt Beria knew out of him before getting rid of him. No one liked Beria. I have to wonder how much longer Beria would have lived if Stalin had not died? I recently read/saw a bit about how Molotov was on the next purge list when they found Stalin dying.

Be forewarned, it is a factual description and reads like a text book sometimes and it will take you sometime to get through, more if you haven't been following the whole thing closely. If you have, it is amazing. It is either way. And it's all true.

731 His wife (a prominent Jewish activist) had already been sent to a camp. There is reasonably good evidence that Stalin was planning a mass purge of Jews, and exiling them to Siberia, before his untimely demise.
Posted by: The ARC of History at January 23, 2019 11:40 PM (I2/tG)


Stalin had already whacked a buttload of Jews who had been among the premier leaders of the USSR. For example, after Lenin died, Stalin ruled with Kameniev and Zinoviev, both Jewish, and each of whom met his fate in the Lubyanka after Stalin had Kirov assassinated. Add to that Yagoda, Yezhov, and a few others whose names I don't now recall.

The KKK was actually in quite a number of places in the North, but even if Trump's father was a member of the KKK (who knows where Milano got this information from) her reasoning doesn't follow.

John Brennan was the ringleader of the whole Russian collusion thing. He created the "evidence" that found its way back to the FBI.

He ran the thing right out of his CIA office, using his foreign operatives and buddies to help gin it up.

They were thinking Hillary would win, and then they would use this to arrest and imprison Trump for the Russian collusion.

It was to be a clear message to any other billionaires with ideas about taking on the Deep State.

757 It doesn't matter whether Trump speaks this Tuesday night. What matters is the optics of Trump speaking at his own SOTU that the public is well used to seeing from "incumbent" Presidents.

A SOTU that he has twice got up with the bases juiced and slugged out of his zip code - and he will do this with either Peloser behind him, or an empty chair with a cardboard cutout of Peloser behind him. Either way - he wins BIGLY.

And this is all after a deal has been struck to reopen the government, whereupon he will use said speech to deliver in front of the entire world the news that he has kept yet another promise (wall) to the American people, spiking the football with the oh-so-delicate, feather-touch aplomb for which Donald J. Trump is well known.

Peloser really shot herself in the foot this time and probably already knows it. She and her party would have MUCH been better off with him giving a SOTU during the shutdown where he could be easily painted to look like a failure, or be seen bragging while "families are suffering". But Trump's enemies seem to do that kind of thing... A LOT.

Re SOTU history. Washington and Adams gave such speeches. Jefferson ended it, on grounds that it was to much like the King's speech to parliament, and therefore unAmerican.

1. Create or locate a flow of cash going from one place to another.
2. Arrange a location near the flow.

Any sort of reparations would require a bureaucracy to make certain the money got from the taxpayers to the recipients. And I am sure that would take no more than 40 to 60% of the funds. Sure would provide jobs for a lot of *-Studies graduates though.

Unlike in the US, I see no reason to think that, in fact, a majority of Germans actually have opposed the stupefyingly idiotic policies of the last few years, but were ignored/betrayed/duped by office-holders.


Talked to some Germans yesterday, really wanted to ask them about the situation there, but was having too good a discussion of military aviation, WWII issues, to spoil it.

854 In every big transaction, there is a magic moment during which a man has surrendered a treasure, and during which the man who is due to receive it has not yet done so. An alert lawyer will make that moment his own, possessing the treasure for a magic microsecond, taking a little of it, passing it on. If the man who is to receive the treasure is unused to wealth, has an inferiority complex and shapeless feelings of guilt, as most people do, the lawyer can often take as much as half the bundle, and still receive the recipient’s blubbering thanks. –

905 YD: I wonder what would have happened in Russia if Schiklgruber had decided *not* to invade Poland, but just suckerpunched Denmark and France in 1939 instead.

And what would have happened in Poland. Poland as of 1939 was already trending antiSemitic. If Addie had assured Poland: nah, y'all are doing good there, keeping our flank against Jewish Bolshevism . . .

The lawyer chick Tucker had on was an expert on defamation/libel law. I don't think she said they wouldn't go anywhere, just pointed out some hurdles.

She did point out that lawsuits against members of Congress wouldn't go anywhere because, thanks to the Westfall Act of 1989.

That gives them absolute immunity from libel and most other common law tort claims.

910 How many really bad Twilight Zone episodes can you think of?

---------

The last one of the series, The Bewitchin' Pool, pretty much blew chunks. It was an Earle Hamner story (The Waltons) with bad casting, bad acting and lousy directing.

To be fair, background noise during filming required the dubbing of the little girl's voice by Rocky the Squirrel. Distracting, but entertaining.

Comedian Bill Burr does a bit about why Hitler but not Stalin or Mao? Meaning, why is Hitler always invoked as the worst of the worst but Stalin and Mao, who killed millions more people than Hitler ever dreamed of, aren't really as the ultimate insult? He's puzzled by it but it's very simple, Bill. The left thinks Hitler was right-wing while Stalin and Mao were commies.

936 Robert Redford played Death in a Twilight Zone episode. He sweet talks a scared old lady into going with him on that last journey.

There was another one about an old man who's walking along with his dog. He just died, he's trying to figure out where the path he's on is taking him. He comes across a guy at a gate, telling him Heaven is in here, come right in, almost like a carnival barker, promising all sorts of good things. The old man hesitates. The dog growls at the guy at the gate, who tells him his dog can't come in. The old man doesn't like that, but the carnival barker has just about convinced him with his slick promises, when the dog physically prevents his master from entering, of course it's really Hell and once you enter you can't leave. The relieved old man walks along with his dog, hearing the guy at the gate yelling after him, and finds the real Heaven a little further down the path where he and his dog are welcomed.

I wish, ha ha. But when I viewed the small exhibit on the Davy Crockett at the Museum of Atomic Testing in Las Vegas, I learned that for the Davy Crockett test (Lil' Guy?), they mounted the launcher on a Weasel, and fired it from there. The Davy Crockett missile looked like a 20-pound propane cylinder with a 3-foot rocket tube attached.


A number of inventors in Canada tried building aero-sleds. I have seen movies of them in operation. They go fine on frozen lakes, and very flat ground. Hills, and slushy conditions stymie them, big time.

But one of the Jeeps on the tour broke down, and we had to make emergency repairs, and going further into the back country would have been unwise, so we turned around and went back the way we came.

Ol' Marlin did get out of the jeep a time or two:

It was Johnny Carson (who had Jim on a million times) who started the joking of Marlin in the jeep, saying "Jim go wrestle than rino in heat while I make martinis in the jeep".

Jim said that bothered Marlin at first, but one of the producers told him, "Marlin, when Johnny is joking about you, that's the highest form of flattery there is." Marlin was OK with it after that.

Lenny Bruce bumps into her, bails her out, and she returns the favor. That got me interested in Lenny Bruce and his real life history.

That's actually a very real and important point. The Leftwing mob would be the ones throwing Lenny Bruce in jail.

This would be a good topic for someone like Tucker Carlson.

Sean Hannity has the ability to do it too, but he would cut off all his guests when they try to answer his questions.

And today, judging from the words coming out of their mouth, many popular comedians today are much more foul-mouthed than Lenny Bruce. Some like Bill Mahr get their own TV shows.

And in Cali and NY, how many voters were citizens?


It was a topic on Tucker last night, the corrupt voter rolls in Democrat states. It wasn't titled that way, but that was the underlying issue. He was pointing out the specific results.

I have preached a lot about the corrupt Motor Voter laws. I live in a corrupt state; I have seen the corruption happen with my own eyes. The sanctitude of voter rolls, specifically only actual citizens legally eligible to vote, must be realized. They are a STD-infested whore right now. And it's fixable.

I'm not even talking about the person who votes twice, or votes using their gramma in failing health. That's nothing.


Our system insures non-citizens can easily and freely attain a voter card, and virtually nobody checks it. The government looks the other way, and if the topic is mentioned, the questioner is the questioned.

And for the few that DO want to check it, like in Kansas, the Leftists will attack mercilessly to stop it from happening.

Only citizens should vote. Until this is fixed, don't expect reality to be reflected at the polls.

The Wages of Clickbait: BuzzFeed to Lay Off 15% of Workforce



Below, a completely unrelated video which in no way implies anything about my feelings about BuzzFeed.

Open thread/early night. Man, anger is really exhausting. It's not good for you. (I always thought that the stress of dealing with nonstop torrents of internet hate contributed to Andrew Breitbart's early death.)

I know I didn't mention the coup in Venezeula but I haven't read anything about it yet. Your posts about it will be more informative than anything I have to offer right now.

Updated: I always said it was Breitbart's retweeting of his stalkers' constant insults which was probably a contributing cause to his stress, which in turn, probably wasn't good for his pre-existing heart condition. The way I wrote the post originally, I seemed to refer to the "anger" mentioned in the previous sentence, which could be read as Andrew's anger. I didn't mean that. I meant the anger directed at him.

I rewrote to clarify my meaning.

These people thought that nominating "war hero" John Kerry would undermine Dubya.

Anyone
old enough to remember that? Most of you are 29, and that was 14 years
ago, but the whole Rathergate thing was part of an attempt to make
people think Dubya was a coward and deserter as opposed to *thrice
wounded* John Kerry.

And when his own crewmates came out with the truth, "Swift-boating" entered the vocabulary as a form of "fake news."

That
is to say, eye-witness, on-the-record accounts people using their own
names was suspect, but of course un-sourced anonymous documents using
improbably modern fonts, why that was "fake but accurate."

The big difference is now they're phoning it in. Not even trying. Or maybe too stupid to meet even that low standard.

I think so. That's why he was so passionate. The Happy Warrior thing was partly to piss off the commies, but also I suspect that it was his way of trying to keep a lid on the anger.

There are some similarities to comedians, both film and standup. They tend to be angry, depressed people, who use comedy as a way to cope.

The solution is to be a happy warrior. Yes, it's okay to get pissed and rage from time to time, but then you let it go and get down to business.

There are really only two outcomes to our current situation.

1. The left burns itself out and alienates all the normals. A bumpy few years but then things get more sane. It's worth pointing out that things were a LOT worse in the late 60s when we had an actual SOVIET UNION working against us. Somehow America survived.

2. Things go sideways and we get the war everyone seems to want. Maybe it has to happen this way. Larger forces are at work. If that's what happens, worry about what's going on in your lane, and keep a positive outlook.

Either way, "non carborundum illegitimi" - don't let the bastards wear you down!

Layoffs are common in the private sector. During boom times everyone builds staff and will hire anyone. Then when things get competitive, there are layoffs as a weeding-out process separates the most productive from those who just show up.

And things always get competitive whenever a new business idea becomes successful as others rush to copy it.

We could be looking at an industry wide shake out as blogs and media outlets find profits being threatened by bloated staff.

Just like these online ads. Advertisers begin to question the effectiveness of online advertising versus cost and start to cut back, or become more selective.

Just business.

Funny how no one in the media is questioning the motive of their false claim and asking the tough question of "Did BuzzFeed concoct a huge lie to try and save their business? And if so is this a fraud on the public and investors that should result in jail time?"

211 "Man, anger is really exhausting. It's not good for you."

While partially true, a lot of the problem is "impotent" anger (not THAT impotence). You're really upset about something, but can't actually address it or defeat it. If you could channel your anger into physical activity, and see results in stopping your antagonist, it might be less exhausting and more motivating.

Unless you're Trump, who somehow seems to feed off of all the hate thrown his way. Cenk Uygur doesn't get much right, but I think he's the one who said Trump was like a Star Trek monster, and whenever the crew attacked him, he got more powerful. The Enterprise crew was smart enough to stop shooting the creature, but the Dems just keep attacking Trump with ever increasing, unhinged rage.

That's the way it was before the Westfall Act of 1989. They have pretty much blanket immunity, by statute, per that act.

This was one of those things they all sneaked through without much press coverage.

The Westfall Act was the reason a defamation lawsuit again the loathsome Jack Murtha by a Marine was thrown out. You may remember Murtha disparaging the Marines about something they did.

Exactly right. The oil peeps with expertise went home, cutting their losses. The thieves put in their own people, and production went steadily downhill from that moment on.
Read a story recently about how they put military people in, and 'all they knew how to do was give orders, not produce oil'. Even the run of the mill oil workers were bitching about how stupid it was.

Do you remember from the Kavanaugh hearings last year that image of Jeff Flake when he was confronted (in the elevator) by the "I'm a victim of sexual abuse!" dame and Flake stood there with his head down looking very ashamed of himself?
THAT'S the look that that Nick kid from the Catholic school should have had when Big Chief Veteran was standing in front of him banging that drum.
of course, that would have only shown that he knew he was guilty of something but the MSM twats might have at least turned down the volume from 11 to 10.

That's the way it was before the Westfall Act of 1989. They have pretty much blanket immunity, by statute, per that act.

This was one of those things they all sneaked through without much press coverage.

The Westfall Act was the reason a defamation lawsuit again the loathsome Jack Murtha by a Marine was thrown out. You may remember Murtha disparaging the Marines about something they did.

The Westfall cleverly prevents state lawsuits against COngresscritters (and all federal officials). It declares that any such alleged tort by a federal employee (including congresscritters) is against the United States, not the private person.

Therefore it must go to federal court, whereby it will be immediately thrown out via the Westfall immunity.

287 (ABC) - Conservative news outlets have latched onto the story as evidence of media bias, after videos over the weekend showed students from the all-male Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky -- with several wearing red 'Make America Great Again' caps -- chanting and appearing to taunt a small group of Native American protesters at an Indigenous Peoples March.

NBC Universal Comcast has dropped $400 million into BuzzFeed over the last three years, and BuzzFeed is supposedly worth $2 billion by venture capital standards.

Ugh. Especially with the gorram Vinson attached. Which had to be improvised with bungie cords if you had the old canvas radio carrier (which is what I was issued). It was okay if you carried it in the ALICE pack, because of the radio pocket, but the Vinson had to be just tossed into the main compartment with the rest of your shit.

Posted by: quint

The new Pres is the leader of the assembly, which is the last democratically elected entity in Venezuela, and he happens NOT to belong to a Socialist party.

There's a little known codicil in the Venezuelan constitution that allows for deposing someone who has taken power in the manner that allows him to take over (from an article linked in this thread):

"The National Assembly leader assumed the presidency of the country through the authority vested in articles 333 and 350 of the Constitution of Venezuela. Article 333 requires all Venezuelan citizens to 'assume the duty of collaborating to reestablish the constitutional order,' while Article 350 requires Venezuelan citizens not to recognize as legitimate any 'regime, legislation, or authority that defies the values, principles, and democratic guarantees [in the constitution], or that violates human rights."

He "sorta" took the oath of office in front of a giant crowd he'd called to protest Maduro, so probably not "strictly legal" but now that Trump and the rest of the world is recognizing, and Trump is sending choppers, Maduro is probably out for good.

So, apparently, at least a few in his social circle were upset, but unsurprised.

580 Some on the previous thread doubted the Covington boys could prove major damages, while others predicted they will be excluded from the vast majority of colleges. It seems to me CCHS will be able to come up with a good estimate of the latter. This is college-acceptance season. Though I teach in a private 6-12 school, I don't follow them closely because I'm not teaching 11th or 12th graders. However, I know some got early acceptances last month, and I believe all regular (not-early) acceptances and wait-listings come out in the next couple of months. If a bunch of early-accepted CCHS boys have their acceptances recinded, and if that has rarely or never happened before, that's prima facie evidence that the slander has had a severe effect on the boys' future earnings, and the effect can be calculated at least to an order of magnitude. Similarly, if (hypothetically) 25-30 CCHS boys apply to UK every year and 70-80% are accepted, and this year the acceptance drops to 20% - that would be clear evidence of a huge discriminatory effect against students at the school. Similarly, if (e.g.) boys with 3.8+ GPA and 1400+ SATs have never been turned down by some college that many of them apply to, and now they're all turned down. Boys who weren't even on the field trip would have a particularly strong case. I wonder if they could sue the colleges as well as the journalists and their flying twitter monkeys.

I've mentioned this, but Andrew was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect just a couple of months before his death. I think he was hospitalized due to that condition. When I saw him, a few weeks after that hospitalization or health scare (whichever it was), he was on a health kick to lose weight. He was on keto or atkins and talking a lot about it. But it was very early in the diet so I don't think he'd had any GAINZZZZ yet.

The point is, when someone goes to the hospital over a heart condition, gets diagnosed with an until-then unknown congenital heart condition, then is instructed to make lifestyle changes pronto, and also has a very stressful job and frenetic lifestyle, and then has a heart attack -- look, that's got to be the LEAST suspicious fact-pattern in the world.

Cold Warrior: Everyone's Favorite "Vietnam Vet" Was a Refrigerator Mechanic Who Went AWOL Three Times
UPDATE: CHIEF LIES WITH ABANDON LIES MORE ABOUT HIS PREVIOUS LIES; WAPO VOUCHES FOR HIM

You guys probably know this, but Chief Refer Madness was not in fact a "Marine Recon Ranger" (a thing which does not exist) but instead was a refrigerator mechanic who went AWOL three times and served at all times in wartorn Nebraska.

Although there's a "NSFW" warning on the post, the only thing unsafe about it, if I remember right, is that he says "shit" a couple of times. I don't think it's the sort of thing likely to scandalize readers here.

Headline courtesy of Mr. Peebles.

Holy Shit Update:



Tami says this is the latest #FakeNews from the completely fraudulent Washington Post, trying its best to prop up its LIAR:

"I have a relative here who said he'd lead the way and scout ahead for us," Phillips said in the article, which describes a protest at the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota. "You know, I'm from Vietnam times. I'm what they call a recon ranger. That was my role. So I thank you for taking that point position for me."

Nelson said that Phillips's comments at Standing Rock were taken out of context and that Phillips actually was referring to the work they were doing at the time on the reservation.

Oh? Then what was the reference to "Vietnam-times"?

What is this mention of "POINT POSITION"? Isn't "taking point" a bit of military lingo that even a chairborne ranger would understand?

Isn't he suggesting he used to take the point on military scouting missions deep into enemy territory during "Vietnam-times"?


More: Chief Lies With Abandon Claims He Was "Spat On," Called "Baby Killer, Presumably When He Came Home From Seeing "Platoon:" At Stripes.com:

The Native American activist, seen beating a drum Friday as teens from Covington High School in Kentucky surrounded and mocked him, has referred to himself as a "Vietnam-times" veteran. He described in interviews getting spit on and called a baby killer by a "hippie girl," and told the Detroit Free Press on Saturday that "I'm a Marine Corps veteran and I know what that mob mentality can be like."

The sight of him surrounded by a group of teens wearing baseball hats emblazoned with President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan and the shifting narratives about the incident afterward have prompted political outcry from conservatives and liberals alike.

He also described the experience of being ordered by a superior to completely take-apart of a Kenmore Walk-In Freezer.

"They told us: 'We had to disassemble the heat unit to save it,'" he sighed, eyes welling with tears.

This is back in the day when they still had to draft people, not the all volunteer system of today.

Judges used to give young criminals the option of joining the service instead of doing time in those days.

I don't think any of the services will take a felon now, or even someone with other than the most minor of misdemeanors.

Microsoft Launches 'Fake News' Filter with Establishment Media 'Experts'

Shock: Drudge Report Blacklisted

Real: Buzzfeed, HuffPo, Media Matters, CNN, National Review, Rolling Stone

FAKE: Breitbart News, Daily Mail, Wikileaks

Without consulting with its users, Microsoft has installed an establishment media browser extension, purportedly designed to rate the accuracy of news websites, as a default setting on mobile versions of its Edge browser. In practice, it creates a news blacklist by warning users away from sites including Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail.
The browser extension, called "Newsguard," presents users with a red warning label if they navigate to a website that it judges to be unreliable. A "green" rating is given to websites that NewsGuard considers trustworthy.

A number of pro-Trump websites, including Breitbart News, are given a "red" rating by the extension.

He still doesn't run around calling himself a Vietnam time/era Veteran unless asked specifically, and then he's very clear he was a Vietnam Era Veteran.

263 I built my parents their house in 2011 and recall one time while standing in line at Home Depot buying a trailer full of wood my dad commented as he pulled out his credentials as a Navy vet to get the 5% discount saying "I don't know why I deserve this, I didn't do anything"

I melted as my allergies hit.

"You were there daddy, you answered the call" He joined at 17 on his birthday, was put through college by the Navy, made ensign but never was assigned a ship as the war came to end. He stayed in the reserves until 1954.

These were minors they were naming in their story, and there are laws in most states about publishing the names of minors without their parent's permission. Even if the children had been accused of a crime they still couldn't have legally published their names.

453 Greetings:

I grew up in the Bronx of the '50s and '60s and was the beneficiary of 13 years of Catholic education including six years of varsity-level altar-boying. If this clown had interrupted a service in which I was involved, he would probably been introduced to either a rather large crucifix or a swinging thurifer in a largely unpleasant way.

I am both disturbed and angered that today's Catholic youth seem to have lost their Crusader instinct and allow members of today's Progressive Borg to publicly abuse them time and time again.

Our young men are, in fact, being subjugated regardless of any push-back that is subsequently generated. Our Muslim brothers and sisters have a tenet that says, "Kuffars should feel themselves subdued.". And, during my Psychology studying daze, I learned that "avoidance behaviors" are the hardest to alter because the subject reacts before the negative stimulus is delivered.

White males are being subjected to these efforts on a continuing basis and that's not going to stop because of rhetorical or written responses.

556 FYI: SNAP benefits are being issued this month to cover what will be left in February.

No other SNAP benefits will be issued after these until Government is fully funded whenever that may be.

So next month the belts get tightened and the Democrats will start feeling their constituents pain.

Oh sure they'll blame Republicans but it's the Democrats the receivers of EBT have always assumed will get them their benefits plus most of them have Democrats for a Representative.

They know calling the GOP isn't going to do them any good.

So if you notice a larger than normal crowd at your local food store, that's why.

WTFF?


He was "surrounded" because he approached a bunch of kids standing there and walked among them.


"shifting narratives"? Nonsense. One set of facts. Documented by video and witnesses.


Oh, those facts showed no "incident", just this mendacious idiot very rudely making noise in a teenager's face for no apparent reason.


Oh - and a bunch of nutcase bigots (Black Hebrews) verbally abusing the kids and everybody else around with their ugly racist and insulting taunts.

677 I'm from Vietnam times. I fell in a freezer compartment and later got thawed out by your scientists.

Your world frightens and confuses me. Sometimes when I see my image on my HDTV, I wonder, is a little demon in there impersonating me?

But there is one thing I do know, ladies and gentlemen. And that is that teen-aged white boys wearing MAGA hats are a symbol of the white privilege and systemic racism that permeates our institutions and shames our nation and which necessitates the impeachment and removal from office of Donald Trump.

681 Not looking to excuse Nathan but he acts and talks like guys I've known (some of them actual vets) who are alcoholics or druggies or so far gone they quite but can't ever come back or somewhere in between.

They have a very hard time with separating the reality that happened to them in the past or just a few minutes ago with stuff they've heard recently or long ago or that they made up recently or long ago. They repeat stuff that's got them rewarded in some way so they keep repeating it.

And they will argue that it's all true because to them it is. It's the only thing they can grasp on to as there isn't anything else they're sure of.

It's sad but most all of them did it to themselves. They didn't know this would be the result. Maybe. But they knew it wasn't any good for anyone as they had plenty of examples around.

These are the people the left got released from our Health facilities. They need meds and structure in their lives cause they're never going to manage on their own. Not in any real or positive way. Yet they have to actually do damage to get put in a facility and most of those are more prison like than the old facilities used to be. Some of them actually ARE prisons and they're not equipped to handle these guys.

It's a f**king shame. This guy needs some help. That his "tribe" isn't doing it says a lot about them or him. Hard to tell which. He may not be a member of a tribe just a hanger on. And they let him out of pity but pity don't pay for the drugs or the food.

True, although with Columbia controlling the passage from South America into Central America I doubt that would be the case. Unless the crisis spreads to Central America for some reason. Despite their statements, I think Columbia and Brazil would be forced to intervene for there own national security.

Y'know, given their lengthy displays of IMMENSE respect for all veterans of Vietnam, I suspect that the left's overwhelming anger about Little Drummer Boy's "dissing" by the MAGA Yutes is way, way less about the "Vietnam" in his bogus self-title and more, more about the "Native American" portion of it, with "Veteran" falling somewhere in the middle.
