The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

To this very moment slavery continues in parts of Africa and the Islamic world. Very little noise is made about it by those who denounce the slavery of the past in the West, because there is no money to be made denouncing it and no political advantages to be gained. Dr. Thomas Sowell


Quote II

Slavery was a gross violation of human rights. Justice demands that all participants in the trans-Atlantic slave trade make compensatory reparation payments to slaves. However, there is no way that Europeans could have captured millions of Africans. That means compensation would have to be paid by Africans and Arabs who captured and sold slaves to Europeans in addition to the people who bought and used slaves. Since slaves and slave traders and owners are no longer with us, compensation is beyond our reach and it's a matter that will have to be settled in hell or heaven. Dr. Walter Williams


Quote III

If respectable politicians are forbidden to raise certain subjects, the voters will turn to unrespectable ones. The people are telling their rulers something important here. The longer the ruling class - in Washington, London, Paris and elsewhere - refuse to listen, the worse it is going to be. Mark Steyn


Quote IV

"I strongly encourage the citizens of St. Joseph county to continue meeting peacefully and voice their concerns peacefully and not with acts of violence. We cannot solve violence with violence! What I am asking today is that we STOP the violence! STOP the shootings! Our community has suffered enough. The problem will only get better when law enforcement and our community work together." Saint Joseph County Sheriff Bill Redman


Quote V

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. George Orwell


Quote VI

Once real Americans elected Donald John Trump president, the monkeys really began throwing their bowel movements at the tourists. Don Surber

Some want to grow up and be professional athletes. Some may want to be firefighters. Others want to grow up and be astronauts. Not Philip Alston. He wanted to grow up to be a special type of bureaucrat. He grew up to be UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights.

The longer the title, the bullshit deepens.

The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law.

Alston is critical of the “patently inadequate” steps taken by the UN itself, countries, NGOs and businesses, saying they are “entirely disproportionate to the urgency and magnitude of the threat”. His report to the UN human rights council (HRC) concludes: “Human rights might not survive the coming upheaval.”

I think we can all agree that reading books is good for you. (Although I suspect there are a couple of contrarians here who will disagree) It seems there is never enough time to read what you would like to read. Techniques t help you read more.

Reading books can exercise your brain and even boost your emotional intelligence. Despite this, about a quarter of all Americans haven't read a book in the last year and our overall book-reading time is on the decline.

In the new year, it’s time to buck this trend. But how do you find the time to read full-length books—and why should you bother in the first place?

Should this be a major university course or a tech school course?

PHARMACY STUDENTS: Do you like weed? Want to earn your masters degree in marijuana?

The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy may be just the place for you!

News reports say that the school is launching the nation’s first master’s program to train students about the science and policies of medical marijuana.

Naughty. Naughty, naughty, naughty. Daimler diesels have illegal software.

Over the weekend, Germany's auto regulator told Daimler that it would have to recall 42,000 Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles after the group discovered illegal software on the cars that would reduce the effectiveness of the emissions-control system.


BMW, Daimler, and VW colluded to prevent better emissions control tech, EU says
Daimler said Sunday night that it would take a one-time charge of hundreds of millions of euros against the upcoming quarter's earnings to deal with the new accusations, but it disputed the government regulator's determination that the software in question was illegal. According to the Wall Street Journal, Daimler plans to formally object to the claims.

Staying up late may be hurting your chance of fatherhood.

Men trying to have a baby could increase their chances of getting their partner pregnant if they go to bed before 10.30 at night.

Men with an early bedtime are almost four times more likely to have good-quality sperm, a study has found.

Scientists asked men what time they had typically gone to bed over the past month, and if a doctor had found them to have normal or low-quality sperm.

Those who went to bed before 10.30pm were almost four times more likely to have normal sperm than men whose bedtime was 11.30pm or later.

How messed up is the NRA? On Friday, popular firearms video impresario Hickok45 and his son John posted an announcement on their YouTube channel. In short, they’re terminating — at least for now — their relationship with the National Rifle Association.

The announcement came one day after the NRA filed suit against former president Oliver North and suspended the org’s number two man and NRA-ILA head, Chris Cox for allegedly participating in the attempted palace coup against EVP Wayne LaPierre. Those moves were apparently the last straws for Hickok45 and his son.

The NRA had been a significant sponsor of the Hickok45 brand and the they had long advocated that gun owners join the organization in support of gun rights. But as they two told their viewers . . .

Why would someone leave the profession she loves? It wasn't the money for this kindergarten teacher.

It takes guts to quit your job. But leaving behind your whole profession? Impossible without an overwhelming combination of soul-searching and disappointment. Recently, Jessica Gentry, 34, from Harrisonburg, Virginia, quit being a kindergarten teacher at Stone Spring Elementary School. Now, sick and tired of all the people assuming she did it for lousy pay, Jessica penned an emotional Facebook rant revealing the true reasons behind her difficult decision. And money wasn’t even on the list. Her sincere words have already received over 263K reactions and 800 comments, many of which are actively supporting Gentry and the new route she’s taking.

Vanuatu, a south Pacific Ocean nation, is banning disposable diapers to save the environment from plastics.

Parents will have to embrace the old-fashioned cloth diapering method. That's not a bad thing.

The Pacific island nation of Vanuatu has announced that it will ban disposable diapers. The ban is part of a nationwide effort to curb plastic pollution, which has overwhelmed the tiny country in recent years. With such limited land mass, it has no "away" where it can toss its garbage and forget about it. Vanuatu's is believed to be the first such ban on disposable diapers anywhere in the world.

Disposable diapers are made from a blend of plastic and wood pulp. Each one is used for a few hours, then tossed into a landfill, often encased in additional plastic, where it will linger for an estimated 200 to 500 years. A baby uses between five and eight thousand diapers prior to potty-training, and the U.S. alone generates 18 billion a year. That's a whole lot of feces-infused plastic waste. Yuck.

...the intersection between American history and fast food, its enduring popularity and how chains are changing to keep up with consumers.

Preferences (and pride) may vary among regional chains—whether it’s In-N-Out in the West, Culver’s in the Midwest or Chick-Fil-A in the South—but U.S. consumers remain fast food fanatics. A Gallup survey showed 80 percent of Americans eat at fast food chains at least once a month.

It doesn't appear the western world and the Muslim worlds are getting any closer philosophically.

A clear majority of the Arab world continues to believe that Israel is the main threat in the Middle East and North Africa, a comprehensive BBC poll of 11 Arab countries revealed on Monday.

The poll — which involved interviews with over 25,000 respondents in Egypt, Sudan, Lebanon, Jordan, the Palestinian territories, Yemen, Iraq, Morocco, Libya, Tunisia and Algeria — also demonstrated that a strict social conservatism prevailed throughout the region, exemplified by a violent hatred of homosexuality.

Opposition to women holding positions of power and influence, as well as sympathy for the practice of “honor killings” — the execution of female relatives for allegedly shaming their families — remains widespread as well.

The poll, conducted for the British broadcaster by the Arab Barometer research organization, showed that residents of the Palestinian territories were more resistant to liberal democratic values than are their neighbors in several respects

The Nissan Versa is no General Lee. Genius Award Winner.

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — A man was arrested for a hit and run crash involving some Hollywood-level elements.

Lee County deputies arrested 35-year-old Robert Foley Wednesday. Deputies say he crashed into an abandoned truck on 21st Street South in Lehigh Acres and then ran off.

Based on tire marks, deputies say Foley was driving westbound on 21st Street Southwest towards a large ditch. That is when an arrest report shows "based on the physical evidence it was apparent the Nissan Versa was traveling at such a great speed that it vaults/airborne and cleared the water canal/ditch in a fashion only to be described similar to what was depicted in the 'Dukes of Hazzard.'"

Self-Defense. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A devastating right hook sent robbery suspect Andre Young to the ground in Forest Park just after midnight.

The knockout punch, delivered by a store clerk, was captured by a security camera.

“He tried to jump over the counter, and he had a blade in his hands,” the clerk said during his 911 call. “I’ve got the blade in my hand right now.”

Detectives said the 52-year-old Young acted as if he were going to buy a can of Milwaukee’s Best beer when he revealed his true intentions.

“He’s still in here,” the clerk told a 911 dispatcher. “I had to knock him out. You need to get a trooper here now, because he’s in here, he’s in here all ****** up.”

Mr. Criminal is lucky. Damn lucky.

I find it noteworthy that the solutions to climate apartheid are universally such that the poor and impoverished must suffer more and live with a lower standard of living, while the rich can easily afford avoiding the inconvenience of the greater regulatory burden.

59 Good news! The Feds repealed the Obamacare penal... er, tax (sorry, Chief Justice Roberts)!

Unfortunately, a few of the states have decided to take measures into their own hands. California looks like it'll be one of the handful of states (so far) that intend to enact their own penal... er, tax... on those who don't have medical insurance. The bill has already passed the legislature. And Governor Newsome has apparently proposed similar legislation on his own. So I expect him to sign it without complaint.

No Republicans voted for it. One Democrat voted against it.

The penalty will not, of course, apply to people in this country illegally. But even this wasn't enough for one Democrat. State Senator Maria Elena Durazo (D) apparently complained that none of the funds received from this penal... er, tax... would be ear-marked for illegal aliens over the age of 65.

108 I've a more than passing interest in the Three Kingdoms era in China. It marked the end of the Han Dynasty (generally considered China's "golden era"), and was fictionalized in the novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms", which is considered to be one of the great novels of Chinese literature (and which also apparently makes much of what passes for American viewpoint advocacy look strictly amateur in comparison). It's also the subject of two video game franchises by Koei-Tecmo, one of which is the (in)famous Dynasty Warriors series.

It took Creative Assembly a while, but they finally got around to touching on the subject matter. Last month, they released Total War: Three Kingdoms, which is a combination of real-time battles and strategic empire building. Due to my interest in the era, I had to get it.

The inevitable problems have been interesting. First and foremost, some of the special abilities that certain rulers have appear to be doing a bit too spectacularly well when the computer is running the rulers in question. There are stories about Yuan Shao (one of the rulers in question) quite literally acquiring half of China as vassals over the course of a few turns. Alternately, Liu Bei (another of the rulers in question) can end up forcibly incorporating non-aligned territory at an alarming rate. But that's apparently not the worst of it.

As is the case with most recent Total War games, building your own dynasty is an important part of the game. The ruler that you start the game with won't be alive at the end of the game, even if he manages to avoid any unfortunate accidents suffered at the point of a sword. The games last longer than a human's life span. So having kids, getting your kids married, and watching those kids have heirs is kind of important. That, of course, requires that a man and a woman be married together so that the babies can start popping out. As is usual, there's no shortage of eligible males.

Eligible females, on the other hand...

Players have noticed a rather disturbing lack of single females in the game. Things are rather tight at the start. But they get downright ridiculous late in the game. One of the reasons for this is that the game is apparently producing a horribly lop-sided number of male children. And, in one of those moments of dark humor, there's reason to believe that the cause of this gender imbalance is one of Creative Assembly's sops to the SJW crowd.

In short, the game allows women to serve as generals just like men (despite the fact that this is horribly ahistorical, and that no army at the time would have accepted a woman as its commander). And there are reasons (which I won't get into) to believe that the steps CA took to bring this about is causing the game to generate a lot more male children than female children.

Heh.

115 The head of the Oregon state senate admitted that the cap-and-trade bill supported by Democrats doesn't have the votes, on the fifth day of a walkout by Republican state senators that denies the Democrats a quorum for a vote.

Now, this may just be a ruse to try to trick the Republicans to return to the state senate to get the bill passed (all bills not passed die on June 30th, under Oregon law), but the left-wingers in Oregon are pissed. It's fun to watch.

The cap and trade bill would have increased the price of gasoline by fifty cents now, by a couple of bucks in a couple of years, and would have doubled the price of heating your home in a few years, among its many other effects.

All the Republicans want is for the bill to be put up for a popular vote, but the Democrats refuse - the voters of Washington voted down a similar bill by a big margin last year, so it seems almost certain that the voters of Oregon would do the same thing.

Yes, the problem (whatever it is -- didn't click, don't care, not important) in his county may get better when his police department and his community work together. But "law enforcement" sees everyone else as the enemy, and law enforcement people -- local cops, state police, the FBI -- are shocked that people are starting to see them as the enemy in return.

that doesn't deserve a serious response, but this is one issue that always chaps the HELL out of me - the so-called "party of science" totally IGNORING science that has been well established for at least a century and a half, and it has to do with the south sea islands.

Ignore the issue of whether the ocean is really rising much at all, which is separate, and for the sake of argument assume it's rising. Charles Darwin *Himself* wrote a treatise over 150 years ago while in the South Pacific on the Beagle, and he wrote out a detailed explanation as to why the coral based atolls in the region (all of the islands we're talking about) would ALWAYS readjust their heights to maintain the same relative levels with respect to the sea. He pointed out that it had been happening for hundreds of thousands of years, and would continue to happen. Every scientific measurement made over the last 150 years has shown that Darwin's predictions were amazingly accurate.

and yet here come the Warmists with their bullshit, every time, "Oh The islands are sinking, the Islands are sinking!!!" No they are NOT you fucktards, go read some Charles Darwin if you want to know why.

Food Apartheid: The Silent Killer in the Black Community

But escaping food apartheid isn't easy. Many neighborhoods carry an invisible "white people only" label, and often it is these neighborhoods that have organic grocery stores and farmers' markets. Moving into a different neighborhood becomes a battle with landlords, who have money falling out of their ears, but still demand the first and last month's rent, and an additional month's rent as a security deposit.

If you want to trigger a revolt of left-wing mothers, suggest banning disposable diapers in a blue city.

Unfortunately, not even blue city politicians are dumb enough to suggest this - perhaps we should set up some astroturf environmental organizations to push this.

Imagine telling utterly "woke" mothers in Portland they can only use cloth diapers - the results would be hilarious.

I played the hell out of one of those old games. I just remember Lu Bu having a 100 rating so the first thing you did was find him and start bribing him until he defected to your side.

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

That was almost certainly one of the games in Koei-Tecmo's *other* Three Kingdoms franchise. It's called, appropriately enough, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms".


I started playing one of the early games in that series quite a while back. But I didn't know anything about the era then, and the game pretty much tossed me in with no background as to what was going on. So I had no idea about the identities of any of the people who I was dealing with. I quit pretty quickly after starting it up.

More recently, the sister strategy game series - Nobunaga's Ambition - has a "fulfill these objectives, and we'll advance the timeline with cutscenes" thing going for it. So you can play along and get a dramatized version of some of the events of the Japanese Sengoku Jidai (which is what that game covers). I'm guessing that RotK does the same for the Three Kingdoms era (and in a much more historically accurate fashion than Dynasty Warriors). But I haven't taken the time to confirm that suspicion.

But escaping food apartheid isn't easy. Many neighborhoods carry an invisible "white people only" label, and often it is these neighborhoods that have organic grocery stores and farmers' markets.

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

Well why don't they just put organic grocery stores and farmers markets in the non-white people only communities?

Oh, right. When they do that, they get attacked for "gentrifying" the community.

Or they get mobbed by shakedown artists until they decide to not build after all, as was famously the case with that one Trader Joe's market.

210 Alston graduated from the University of Melbourne with an LL.B.(Hons.) in 1972 and an LL.M. in 1976 and from the University of California at Berkeley School of Law.

His brother is the former Australian federal Cabinet minister and High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Richard Alston.


Of course. I've said that Washington DC is more inbred than a West Virginia trailer camp, but the UN is probably more inbred than a Pakistani family reunion.

In human rights law, Alston has held a range of senior UN appointments for over two decades

I wonder what his cumulative expense account bill is at this point. Bets that it's over a million bucks? Two million?

And, of course,

]In 2017 the United Nations undertook an investigation on the effects of systemic poverty in the United States. In a 29 November 2017 Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) statement, Alston observed, "Some might ask why a UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights would visit a country as rich as the United States. But despite great wealth in the US, there also exists great poverty and inequality...[He will] focus on how poverty affects the civil and political rights of people living within the US, given the United States' consistent emphasis on the importance it attaches to these rights in its foreign policy...[He will investigate] the "criminal justice system, welfare and healthcare, barriers to political participation, homelessness, and basic social rights such as the right to social protection, housing, water and sanitation.

Weird - Trump gets elected, and all of a sudden the UN notices that there is poverty in the United States. (Even if "poor people" in the US are better off than most of the world's population.)

A landmark battle in the war on drugs ended Tuesday, and a new approach to address racial inequities began, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker acted to legalize marijuana in Illinois effective Jan. 1, 2020.

The most unusual and far-reaching aspect of the bill is its "social equity" component. It calls for 25% of tax money for grants to fund neighborhood improvement projects in poor minority areas. Proposals are to be chosen by a board led by Lt. Gov. Julianna Stratton.

The most unusual and far-reaching aspect of the bill is its "social equity" component. It calls for 25% of tax money for grants to fund neighborhood improvement projects in poor minority areas. Proposals are to be chosen by a board led by Lt. Gov. Julianna Stratton.

The state will also provide lower licensing fees, low-interest loans and preference in awarding licenses to social equity applicants, defined as those from areas most affected by the war on drugs, or having criminal records eligible for expungement.

"What we are doing here is about reparations," state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, a Democrat from Peoria, said. "Black and brown people have been put at the very center of this policy."

273 "What we are doing here is about reparations," state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, a Democrat from Peoria

The hilarious thing is that investing in a small-scale legal marijuana business is financially disastrous - marijuana growers are going out of business left and right in Oregon because prices are so low. A couple of large companies are buying up distressed Oregon marijuana retail stores that are unable to compete, due to the excessive number of stores.

Giving black people special incentives to get into the marijuana business in 2019 is like giving black people special incentives to buy houses in 2007.

299 Giving black people special incentives to get into the marijuana business in 2019 is like giving black people special incentives to buy houses in 2007.

Because leftists don't understand economics, they think that a marijuana business is a magical license to print money.

It's an agricultural crop. Starting a storefront marijuana store requires little capital, so tons of people are going to get into that business.

People try to compare "boutique" Oregon marijuana farms to "boutique" Oregon wineries, but ignore that "boutique" Oregon wineries don't actually make money - they are run as hobby businesses by rich people.

I believe you.


Several years ago, Virginia's Democrats decided that they needed to have a meeting to decide how to "connect" to the rural communities of western Virginia. Their idea of going to the rural area was to have the meeting in Roanoke City at a luxury hotel located in the middle of the city. They could have gone about 45 minute drive south and had it in Martinsville, 45 minute drive west and had it in Radford, but they chose to have it at a hotel that was 5 minutes from the largest airport west of Richmond.



Plus, those other places didn't have luxury hotels even though there are hotels in those places with plenty of meeting rooms to have the confab.

No I'm a historian and author for being inclusive but do you think this guy has a freaking agenda. This is where the left has infiltrated everything in our culture and it needs to be fought. I'll bet you if you go to his little Museum America is probably the worst country in the world. In fact we probably invented slavery. What a load of crap.

by the tsunami, the UN flew a special team into Jakarta, which was put

One of the high schools in Richland, Washington is nicknamed "The Bombers" - their school symbol used to be a nuclear explosion, but now they have something more pacific as a symbol.

427 Recall when truly around 29 in DC going to some brunch or something with World Bank people my own age. There was endless talk of going "on mission" - they actually had to stay in 5-star hotels, if available. [that's besides their tax-net salaries - ya know, the kind a former secTreasury actually claimed to not understand]


Now - there's no point in hobbling your own assistance activity by having your staff living in squalor or danger if it's avoidable - but it's one of those judgement/context things, and WB was renowned for cushy options in all cases, which kinda sorta absolutely sits poorly with their mission.


My record reimbursement form for a hotel was: 47 cents a night [at rate of exchange for worthless temporary local currency during a civil war]. Only non-refugee in the place. But quite good, great opportunity to talk with the sort of people we were aiming to help, plus good fun otherwise.


The bombed-out former Soviet army barracks, in January, at elevation, in another nearby war zone was free - and worth every cent. But also fun. And, well, the only option to being outside [tho it was kinda outside, place was laid open with serious damage].

What are we to do? Make right the enslavement of black Africans up until 1808? Nothing can make that right. The crime was excessive, and the victims are long dead.

Can anything make the use of their children as inborn slaves right? No, it can't. Once again, the people who committed the excesses are dead, and so are their victims.

All we can do is look back to the point where the enormity ended, and it's an important one, because an entire huge and mighty nation squandered ALL of its youth, and ALL of it's treasure defeating this, and another 150 years sorting out the consequences.

How can we settle this through cash payments, or treaties with foreign nations like Liberia, or Maoist self-denunciation sessions at home?

451 For the student of World War II, there is that one photo and a bit of datum that surfaces to expand one's knowledge base tremendously.

The plane in the background probably started out as a B-25D-25-NA made in Kansas City. Then it was assigned to the war in the Pacific. Hence the plane's defensive firepower was upgraded to D2 standards by installing two waist hatches with .50cal machine guns and a tail gunner station with a single .50cal on a jeep spring under new glazing.

Then to make things even more unique, on the waist position we can see in this photo, it has been mostly covered over leaving only a small square opening. Why? Probably will forever remain unknown the answer.

And finally lets look at the nose. Unlike a vast majority of B-25Ds converted into strafing planes, this Mitchell has received one of the North American B-25J gun nose conversion kits that allowed units in the field to turn any glass nosed Mitchell into an aerial buzz-saw with eight .50s.

P.S. The D2 waist hatches are not like the ones later found on the H and J models. For one they are not staggered. And the top and bottom metal fairings are symmetrical in size.

They had some guy, who looked like a penis-sipper, haughtily explaining that the 1970 "Soccer War" between Honduras and El Salvador was really not about soccer at all, but something else.

One of the pics they showed was a crew loading bombs onto a bright aluminum twin-engined tail dragger bomber, with some sort of nose art on it. Would that be an A-26? I think it had inline engines in the nacelles, not radials.

470 About prestige of working for UN or int'l orgs [or, esp., the Americans] in many places with foreign assistance]: the former USSR was obviously a weird different case for relief organizations - many of which got their start in Europe after WWII [Concerned Americans for Remittances to Europe - CARE, for example], had not done relief work in a northern hemisphere/former/quasi-developed context for generations.


And you had the very weird educational situation - in technical fields, extremely well educated people whose lives - amidst the collapsed Soviet economy - depended on being ..... a driver or warehouse manager for an American or other relief outfit.


Thus, one operation we funded, run by a very competent Indian engineer, had a driver. Indian guy told me his driver got more email than he did - and from leading scientists from around the world. He ended up giving the guy leave to travel to London - to present a paper on black holes. Guy was an astrophysicist of int'l note. NGOs used to joke about whether they should require 1, or 2, doctorates for warehouse manager positions.

Supposedly there's a Mynah Birds album in the can that's never been released.

The suspect reportedly displayed a handgun and demanded that the driver exit his vehicle. After the victim got out of the vehicle, the suspect fled the area traveling eastbound towards Olio Road.

According to police, the suspect was initially a passenger in a black GMC full-size SUV, which followed the van as it fled the scene.

552 If I remember correctly, Scott Card inhabits a world with an animal species called piggys to terraform the planet.

When piggies die, they are transferred into trees. Wars erupt
and that causes the piggies to kill each other and turn into
more trees. Then peace, and more piggies.

Muy Private Tech Monopoly Censorship, Continued



Start your own Twitter!, the cucks and corporatists and leftwing censors said.

So someone did.

So then Twitter's pal Apple -- and these people are in frequently contact with each other, "harmonizing" their censorship strategies -- bans the competitor to Twitter.

Chase is cancelling people's private bank accounts; MasterCard is refusing to process credit card payments, and pressuring Paypal and Patreon to deplatform people.

This is getting well beyond "just make your own site."

Do we have to make our own parallel banking system and new internet as well in order to speak without leftwing censorship?

I know the corporate cucks' answer. Just keep that sweet, sweet corporate donation money coming, and they'll say anything their corporate masters ask them to.

And oh, by the way:



Make sure you get out your checkbooks to donate to National Review! They're fighting for you, you know!

(Assuming you're Google or the US Chamber of Congress or some other very well-heeled corporate interest.)

Texas is closer (I already live here) and has legal ways out of a collapsing USA. We joined by treaty. Treaties are only valid as long as both parties exist. If the USA ceases to exist, or can be said to exist in name only (such as if the Constitution is suspended), we would have the right to declare that treaty null and void.

50 31 Does Apple control what you're allowed to send via text?
Posted by: Mr. Peebles at June 25, 2019 07:25 PM (oVJmc)

So, and this is a little concerning -- iMessage is supposedly peer to peer encrypted, so the safest way to send text without anyone being able to interfere with it. But it's a program owned by Apple, a company that seems to embrace censorship.

The biggest, most used, and famous peer to peer encryption text app (which I also use), WhatsApp is owned by ... Facebook.

So... yeah.

57 For example, it won't allow me download a wifi channel analyzer to determine which channels are most clogged in my area for my wifi. Because it could, theoretically, be used to get information that could be used to hack someone. So they just ban an entire category of useful apps.

That's a separate issue; the network libraries don't have methods to drive the wifi hardware at that level because the OS handles it. It's meant to keep apps siloed from teh other apps on the same system for security. It's not that they don't allow that class of app, it's that the API isn't published.

Hearts rippling across the breeze.
The Queen arises
Slowly,
Torn dress ripped at the knees.

The Jack saw his fill
And quickly took his leave.
Stood trembling in a doorway,
Mind struggling to believe...

The King was an alcoholic,
It was widely known to be so,
Each eve he would sit solemn,
Wine in hand and sword on show,
Clapping to the Jokers' japes
As he danced and sang
About love and fate.
But how was the King to know?
Not two rooms away
His wife had lain,
With a smile and a *****.
Creating a cuckold and a fool...

The Jack had had enough
And promptly marched
To the throne room.
Armed with only knowledge,
Unleashes inevitable typhoon.

The winds will rise,
This house shall succumb,
Imploding inwards
Till the house is done.
And all that remains
Among ash and decay,
Broken hearts and broken spades,
Is the Jokers last laugh.
A mockingbirds call as daylight fades.

These regulator positions are frequently elected officials -- they're political. And New York holds outsized influence in the financial sphere.

Posted by: Deep State is in DEEP SHIT at June 25, 2019 07:46 PM (BqBId)

Admiral Mike Rogers is a true American patriot.

His reputation jumped on the grenade that was thrown by the cabal of Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, etc etc.


After Barr convicts the traitors for the charges against them, Rogers should get the Medal of Honor.


He was THE GUY who was the first to call out the Coup against the duly elected President of the United States.

If there was any brain in these techies' heads they would just let all this evil, offensive conservative thought be published.

Such should be the thought process, one would think...)

But the ONLY thing they will achieve is driving everything underground where it will ultimately rise up and bite them in the ass. (Trump's election, anyone? So many people in the media and elsewhere were so dismissive of him and the deplorables that when they woke up on November 9, 2016 and saw Trump was elected, the shock was real. But ALL they needed to do was to shut up and listen.)

On Android you can side load apps by going to developer settings and allow.

Not so with Apple. Everything has to go through their platform. To be a developer you have to own a Mac PC and pay $100.00. That is the only way to get an unapproved app on the iphone...but that's only your phone.


We could build mobile style apps on the web; I build them sometimes to be responsive to the phone and work like a phone app.

everything underground where it will ultimately rise up and bite them in

elsewhere were so dismissive of him and the deplorables that when they
woke up on November 9, 2016 and saw Trump was elected, the shock was
real. But ALL they needed to do was to shut up and listen.)

237 Tucker discussing Tech Tyranny.

Posted by: redridinghood at June 25, 2019 08:22 PM (RBOtF)

238 The problem the majority of people who are not far left wackos have is that they pride themselves on holding beliefs based on well thought out ideas that can be defended in debate. We mistakenly think the world can be swayed by points and counterpoints, when in fact it is ploughed down by the left with baseless slogans screamed in our faces 24/7.

Demonetise YouTube - build a list of advertisers that are on You Tube. Forget the well thought out emails and arguments on the merits of free speech - tell them you are disappointed they are supporting a fascist movement that is suppressing minority voices and we will not support that, nor should they.

Put the GOP on notice, in the UK, the Tories are about to be destroyed if they don't deliver an agreeable Brexit as requested. The GOP, Democrats, Labour and Tories are really all just different shades of the same colour at this point. The media tacitly supports all of them but gets to berate the conservatives for not being quite the right shade. Anything of a different color is not allowed.

Consider if Political Opinion would be given the same protected status as being gay or a minority such that you could not discriminate based on it. Imagine getting what would happen if you were demonetized by YouTube because you posted a gay or trans video. Same rule should apply if you were kicked off for political opinions. Obviously the same rules apply regarding direct violent speech. This actually solves a mighty number of problems, Doxxing conservatives, deplatforming them, not serving people in MAGA hats etc. all those things you would never be able to do to a trans/gay person you now couldn't do to a conservative.

Drop Facebook, Google, Chrome and use the Brave browser and switch search engines. Brave was also started by Brendan Eich who after founding Mozilla and creating Javascript (quite possibly one of the most influential developers of all time) was ousted over donating to proposition 8.

The left has a neverending pool of cash it has seeped off from taxpayer funded bullshit and a rich cabal of sugar daddies which are used to fund protests and cases of lawfare. We have no such active benefactors so if they are not interested in opposing the non-left agenda, then maybe its time to feed them to it. I have no problem piling taxes on multi-millionaires, since a) they are mostly democrats who support this shit, and b) they sit idly by while we their political allies die deaths by a thousand cuts. Lets make them live by their own rules.

Sargon of Akkad in the UK, after a failed election campaign made an interesting video talking about the new way of dealing with leftists. Bring them out into the open, make them debate and show them up for being imbeciles with no coherent argument. I have yet to see a conservative view point utterly taken down by any of these wackadoodles, they have no case they can make that the average person would agree with.

We are the majority, the centrists, the conservatives, and even the libertarians. We don't all agree, but we agree enough to get along. That is what these people should be afraid off.

As far as French Davidians, what annoys me the most is that they accept, implicitly, the notion that anyone on the Right deserves to be pushed to the side. It is an agreement that the Right isn't really a part of polite society, dontcha know, and that it's just fine to accept the presumption that the culture on the Right is something apart and different and outside.

It is precisely the same worldview of the portion of the Evangelical world in which I was raised where you attended your own schools, and you did not participate in pop culture at all, and you tried to keep your money in the community and on and on and on.

316 It is so cold and dark as gloom
I'm on the floor hog-tied and bound
The door is locked to my new room
I don't know if I will be found

I'm on the far side of the moon
Deep silence I can't hear a sound
I really thought I was immune
Even though no one was around

I think maybe it was about noon
I saw you two and my heart drowned
You were hand in hand love abloom
How on Earth could I have been clowned

My hand to my hip then the boom
You lay bleeding on the hard ground
Caught within the web of your loom
Grief and misery both abound

Tour song of love was out of tune
I weigh treachery by the pound
My heart break to you I impugn
My once kind smiling face has frowned

Horrid deeds drop me in a swoon
The gravity does me astound
You will be buried this afternoon
A grave and tomb will you impound

The green-eyed monster sealed my doom
But why, why did you so confound
A love, a life so opportune
My feelings for you so profound

A cuckold pathetic buffoon
Alas no peace have I found
Here on the far side of the moon
Here on the floor hogtied and bound
You lay bleeding on the hard ground
Caught within the web of your loom

She made me wear
A pink french maid's uniform that day
I had to wait on her and her black stud lover Tyrone

Fix them drinks and make them dinner
These are the duties of the ***** cuckold

It's hard to be inferior to him
He is so well-built and powerful
A perfectly sculpted body
A large and powerful manhood
He is every woman's dream

She reminds me that no beautiful woman
Will ever want to be with a ***** like me
That my manhood is too small
That my *** drive is too low
Nature has dealt me a bad hand

I sit by the bedroom door
This time I am not allowed to watch
She only told me that they would be doing it *******

I sit next to the door
I hear her load moans and sighs
I know he is pleasuring her
In ways I never could

My goodness
Forty-five minutes have passed
And they are still going at it

I peer through a crack in the door
He is so powerful that he can hold her up
As he thrusts deep inside her

I am not strong enough
To have *** in the standing position

What a man he is
He can squat 300 pounds
And has a strong powerful ***

Look at him ******
She screams in ecstasy

After she is finished
She will tell me how wonderful he was
As I polish her high heels

After he leaves
I have the humiliating and exciting task
Of giving her oral pleasure

These are the duties of the ***** cuckold

337 It is precisely the same worldview of the portion of the Evangelical world in which I was raised where you attended your own schools, and you did not participate in pop culture at all, and you tried to keep your money in the community and on and on and on. It was all very insular, and very restrictive and I don't mean the religious strictures, and it was a very cramped way to live. "

Cramped, yes - but if you believe that the dominant culture is headed for complete collapse and crash, then it makes sense to insulate oneself from it. Especially if you're right.

And the feeling in strongest in those traditions that have survived previous cultural collapses. Lost count of how many civilizations Judaism has survived, and Christianity is on at least it's 3rd.

btw, Islam will not outlive Islamic civilization, and that civilization probably only has a couple of generations left in it.

384 Here in East Texas (central Texas, too) everyone is starting to talk about how this is the rainiest, coolest summer anyone can remember. 2 nights ago, a hugely violent stormfront blew across the area, even shutting down DFW for a little while. Today started off sunny, and at about 3 pm suddenly this storm came across peaking at 65mph winds for about 10 mintues. Still got limbs to pick up in my yard from that.

Normal rainfall by this date here is right at 23". So far for the year, we're already at 40" and the rain keeps coming!

I'm wondering if this was what the weather was like when the herds of Mammoths used to roam around here. Everything is growing like wild, for the plants it's like a garden of Eden.

LOL.

I'm sorry that I am not on the big-government regulation train you want to start rolling to solve what you perceive to be the problem with Big Tech. Call me silly.

And, yes ... I was not convinced by that video you linked that "proved" that neuroscientists know pretty much exactly how the biochemistry of the brain works and have unlocked the secrets of addiction and habituation ... clearly demonstrated by experiments that measured rat smiles which showed that dopamine definitely is attached to "want" in human thinking and not "like" ... because rat brains are pretty much human brains in miniature and everyone knows that rat smirks are the key to understanding neurophysiology.

LOL.

I made clear my take on Big Tech and how it should be approached. You don't like that way? Good. You have your ideas. But I am not on your Big Government approach and I am not turning in favor of Net Neutrality utility regulation arguments. I am against that stuff.

And the tech companies are not controlling your mind with dopamine-infested click baits. Get a grip.

not too much, though.

465 Actually one of the best computers for music creation was the Atari ST.

There are some sequencing apps on the ST that are still used today.


You're not the first person I've heard say that. But I haven't seen anything running on one of those platforms, so I wouldn't know.
I hot-rodded this 4-yr-old laptop a bit to run Reaper: put 4 more gigs of memory in it and bought a full-sized 32-gig SD card then formatted that to run in ReadyBoost cache. It seems to run a bit faster, but occasionally it just doesn't want to boot up. Didn't start that until a couple of Win10 upgrades ago. Seems as though about every fourth upgrade is hosed somehow.

Oh well, when you have a brazillian lines of code, somebody's going to make a mistake occasionally.

480 @424 I really hope the generation after the Millennials is so sick of the shit they start the push back.

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

Hopefully, but...

That potential is the real reason why PC exists. PC exists to make people say something that they flat out know is false just to avoid censure. It's the same thing that was done in the communist countries during the Cold War. You know that X is no true. But Bad Things(tm) will happen to you if you admit that X is not true. And X is such a little thing, almost insignificant. So you knuckle under and agree to it.

Then someone asks you about Y. But you already lied about X, and what's one more thing to be able to not draw the wrong kinds of attention to yourself? So you think it over, and lie about Y as well.

And then before you know it, you're lying about the whole alphabet.

Some of those who push the lies really do want you to believe. But the smartest and most malevolent among them know that the end goal isn't really to change your system of belief. The end goal is to make you *LIE* about your system of belief just to avoid drawing that attention. If they can get you to do that, then they can get away with anything.

Maybe the generation after the Millenials will rise up against it. But the people who are running this scheme are betting that they won't. They're betting that they'll knuckle under and agree no matter how bald-faced the lie is, and how obvious it is that the Emperor really does have no clothes.

I eat a full Italian Sunday dinner every week. While I don't consciously avoid it during the weekdays , I don't eat it that often on other days. I eat a lot of different proteins during the week and fresh Vegetables. I really don't have any issue with my weight and maintain six pack abs, but I also train and workout 7 days and vary routines. I've done this for a long time so some it is due to training my body and some due to metabolism.

514 Some of those who push the lies really do want you to believe. But the
smartest and most malevolent among them know that the end goal isn't
really to change your system of belief. The end goal is to make you
*LIE* about your system of belief just to avoid drawing that attention.
If they can get you to do that, then they can get away with anything.


I'm old enough at 29 to just play all stoopid. "What are you talking about? I never heard about that, why is that important?" and so on.

I'm not playing their game and neither should anyone else.
Oh, BTW, my comment never made it onto that New Music post from that weirdo yesterday. They apparently don't appreciate my brand of humor. Which is OK, since I certainly don't appreciate their articles written by psychos. I still maintain that article was just good trolling. It was too pitch perfect.

518 @501 The Hawley proposed legislation just removes the special government protections the FacebookAppleGoogle crowd has now, and they can be sued like any other broadcaster or publisher instead of being both and hiding behind the other when they are called out.

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

Based on my understanding of the whole thing, I'd prefer not to see the legislation go through. My understanding is that it essentially removes the "neutral platform" protections. But then the issue is that if someone does establish a truly neutral platform, they'll promptly get set-up and destroyed by a sue-happy individual who anonymously created the post that was used as the rationale for the lawsuit.

What we need is to simply acknowledge that Google and the other companies are not neutral platforms. From what I understand, simply acknowledging that fact will immediately remove them from under the umbrella of protection that's provided by the law.

I posted this yesterday, but here is the only way to watch Hannity.

DVR the show.

Then play it back on a slow fast forward. The sound goes away, and you know the topic because of the graphic that changes every few seconds behind Hannity's head.

When a guest shows up, drop to normal speed, watch as much of the Q and A session as you can until you have taken as much of Hannity's rude manners as you can.

Then, speed it back up again. Repeat as necessary.

This also works for commercials.

An entire Hannity can be watched in 15 - 20 minutes.


You're welcome.

But it's been obvious that Nadler's hearing are going nowhere, and they're desperate for anything to fire them back up. Still, Mueller's in a trap - if he says anything new, well then why didn't you put that in your report? Why did you sit on it till now? But if all he says is what is in the report, well so what? He's opened himself up to question from Meadows and Co. for nothing.

592 absolute easy-peasy staple: baked chicken parm, low-carb

pound chicken breasts into something like a uniform thickness.

on a plate, mix about equal parts of crushed pork rinds (sometimes called pork rinds panko, or just crush your own in a food processor or just by sticking them in a ziploc bag and crushing them) and grated parmesan. Also mix in salt, pepper, and a lot of italian seasoning, plus extra oregano and basil.

Mix eggs in a bowl.

Dry off the chicken breasts, then drench them in the egg.

Then move the breast to the plate of pork rinds and parmesan and cover both sides.

Lightly coat a cookie sheet with olive oil. Put the chicken breasts on that. Spray or brush olive oil on to the side facing up.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Take the breasts out. Spoon on low-carb pasta sauce to cover them, but not in heaping amounts.

Then put on as much mozzarella as they will bear, and maybe a sprinkle of more parmasan.

Now bake them for another 5-8 minutes. If you want, you can broil them at the end for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese, but KEEP AN EYE ON IT, they can turn quickly and also the olive oil will be at or near the smokepoint and you don't want that burning too much.

Take them out and let them rest five minutes.

You really can't tell these from chicken parm made with bread crumbs. The pork rinds swap is a perfect swap. Nothing lost.

Make 4 or six of these on a weekend day and you've got a bunch of meals for the week.

I know their are recipes for taking the mac and cheese and smooshing into patties and frying those up.

Posted by: ace at June 25, 2019 09:39 PM (PbpT7)

If you want mashed, get a kitchen tool called a "ricer".

Late wife had a zillion overpriced kitchen tools, she seemed to bring a new one home every month or two. I would wonder what some of them were used for.

She used a ricer to "mash" yams, add brown sugar, butter, maybe some pineapple, then made a pecan - molasses - other stuff topping she would drizzle on the top, then baking it. The top would become crunchy like chocolate on a dipped ice cream cone.

Heavenly.


I know, can't use yams because of the starch. But the ricer is a tool that was much greater than any expectation I had for it.

It would work well for cauliflower.

Oh My Goodness

There's a very thin time-bar at the bottom of the video. If you put your curser right on on it, you can slide it over to 42:15.

In this clip from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a guy talks about a rough-sex play scenario he used to enact with a woman, in which he would burst into a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman's.



By the way, in that Anderson Cooper interview, she claims that even though Bergdorf Goodman's usually was well-trafficked, "in the moment" (when Trump allegedly attacked her) it was not, and she also said that while Bergdorf Goodman's had an attendant in the dressing room area who would open the dressing room with a key for you, at this particular moment that attendant was not on duty, and he conveniently left one dressing room open.

Boy, Trump's one lucky duck, huh? All of these oddball circumstances lining up to give him a moment alone (alone? in a crowded department store?) with this woman.

With the stars aligning like that, who knows, maybe they summoned Cthulhu while they were in there.

But no, then you'd be wrong. They're obviously channeling Wile E. Coyote.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at June 25, 2019 06:33 PM (c/0Nr)

48 Every great rape consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The rapist shows you something ordinary: a watch, a bird or a penis. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course...it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The rapist takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every rape has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige".

I think their strategy is to just keep beating the drum, leading nitwits to think that there MUST be something there, because they keep hearing about it (smoke, fire, all that).

It's kind of what the MSM did to Nixon during Watergate, for those who weren't on the scene at the time. Many nights network news would report that there had been no new developments in the "ongoing and breaking scandal involving President Nixon."

Oh. OK. So ... the news tonight re Watergate is that there is no news. Just thought you'd remind us, huh?

Posted by: Mr. Peebles at June 25, 2019 06:35 PM (oVJmc)

The bigger reason she can't be sued for libel is that it's a classic, literal, "she said, he said" story. There's no possibility at this date of either side ever being able to "prove" anything about it one way or the other. If she says that Donald Trump was in telepathic contact with Space Aliens who abducted her and subjected her to their anal probes, well we can say that's pretty unlikely, but we can never "prove" that it didn't happen.

But the fault lies on anyone who believes a story that stupid, just because a crazy person said it.

This was one of my problems with that bullshit Netflix "Making of a Murderer" film re Steven Avery. Netflix would have us believe that someone cremated the victim's body at Avery's junkyard in broad daylight (people driving by noticed the raging flames), and just hoped that none of his extended family (they all lived together) would return during the festivities (which presumably took at least an hour, probably more), nor would any customers show up during that time.

170 I don't know if there are any matching quotes here but in the <i>House MD </i>episode, "Clueless", the episode starts with an apparent violent rape that turns out to be sexual roleplay by a married couple.

200 Dear CNN Forum,

I never thought it would happen to me.

It all started when my brave, handsome husband Lucius was away at a military encampment.

The Prince, Tarquin, came to visit Collatia. I was honored to have the Royal Personage stay in our home, and treated him to the finest food and drink. He gave no indication of being anything except what one would expect of a scion from a such a distinguished line.

After our repast, I retired to my quarters, and drifted comfortably to sleep.

Everything changed when I awoke, feeling something cool and wet on my belly, to find the Prince washing my nude body. Somehow he had sneaked around my contingent of slaves, into my room!

I was so alarmed and confused, I didn't know what to say or do... That's when he... changed.

He told me to submit to his advances, or he would kill me and one of the slaves, and tell Lucius he'd caught me in an act of adultery.

I couldn't bear to die with such dishonor, so I let the brute beast take me, then and there.

Every day, I feel like I can't live with this shame, and I fear I'll take my own life.

But I have to admit... the whole thing was pretty danged sexy, ya know?

202 Is this a thing now? A fantasy delusion among the freaks on the left -

It sure sounds like she is claiming it as a symbol of her "victimhood" like for a while being a heroin addict was considered trendy and hip and proved you were "legit." Then for a while having abusive parents seemed to be everyone's burden they had to overcome. Or being "on the spectrum"

It seems like the left is always looking for a way of proving they are oppressed or victimized or better than everyone else because of their hardships. But this one seems half fantasy as well.

Somebody was saying on one of the earlier threads that Carroll had written a fictional story for this particular book, and in the story the female character goes to Hunter's house and gets in his hot tub (or gets pushed in, I forget), and then Hunter uses a knife to cut off her leggings, and then he rapes her.

Commenter also said that Carroll was on some t.v. show the other day, saying that Hunter Thompson had done this to her (and again, she was in her 50's at the time).

Jean has no "legal case" at all, and she knows it. This is the one part that causes me to suspect strongly that she's not completely crazy, and that she's completely aware of what she's doing. She refuses to file any reports or make a complaint which means that she KNOWS she could get in trouble if she said any of this under oath.

So she just flat out refuses to repeat any of these claims under oath, never has, never will. That's what you call a "tell", right there.

(and as long as she never makes the claim under oath, no investigator of any kind will ever be interested in it,, so she's home free)

I'm going on watching Trump in action for 3 years now. He is quite willing to work with whoever works with him, regardless of their political stripes.

I understand it makes sense to see who is running first, but look at AZ, they had some piss poor R candidates. What makes anyone think they will come up with someone better, that can also win?

The Tillis thing IMO, is a local matter. We saw what happened when the R's got involved with AL politics, they got their azz handed to them.


My solution is to hang about 50 in any combination, the Democrat Lefties and Corporate Cuck leaders a month.

Then re-evaluate the following month if anything has improved.

To be specific, she said Thompson cut her tights off with a knife - but she didn't consider that rape, it was only an "adventure." Yeah, I guess having a drug-addled lunatic like Thompson slashing away at your clothes with a knife is just good fun - if it is just a creation of your little fantasy world.

Winning: Mexico Sends 15,000 Troops to Border to Curb Immigrant Flow to the North

So tired of all the winning.

From the very first day Donald Trump could call himself "president," we've heard leftists and establishment conservatives say that his aggressive diplomatic style -- of negotiating with other governments -- won't produce anything useful. Trump was just angering them, and by doing so, he would actually end up undermining America's national interests.

Well, I think we can put that criticism of the president to rest:



CNN correspondent Nick Valencia reports that Mexican Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval has announced that he'll send nearly 15,000 extra troops to the Mexican border with the United States. Their number one job? To "curve the migration flow."

Tariffs and economic sanctions never work. You know what does work, every single time? Sending US troops to invade and then nation-build other countries. That works every time, 60% of the time.*

* Caution: May not work 60% of the time.

The massive corruption of the Obama / Corporate Press cabal for 8 years, which followed the CoC/cuck/open borders of the Bush II years, created the conditions for Trump to be popular.

The net loss of culture is a function of both immigration and assimilation. If the engines of assimilation were ramped up (as they used to be, or even a good ways in that direction) we would go a long way to not having our political culture erased.

Because it really isn't racism, but it is about whether a country is populated by identifiable, cultural Americans.

I still want Mexico presented with a bill for dealing with the tons of invaders they have helped push through our borders over the years. It would be a few hundred billion, for starters. They are responsible for those costs (aside from our own large numbers of treasonous idiots) and should get a formal bill for them.

When we think "army" we think of competent, well trained, disciplined -- you know, like our Army.

Joe Rogan had a retired Mexican narco cop on his podcast a week or so ago who was talking about the Mexican army. According to him at least, the army is like one of the least respected professions in the country, and is full of illiterate, underpaid, corrupt unprofessional idiots who are more than willing to take a bribe and/or look the other way when the cartels want them to.

152 Next up, Japan. Right now, the usual suspects are making a lot of noise about a falling out between the US and Japan based on "prime real estate" in Japan used for a US military base. The usual suspects are stating that Trump is threatening to pull the US out of the Defense agreement with Japan over this issue (which is ludicrous).

What really is going on is that Trump is currently negotiating a bi-lateral trade agreement with Japan (#1 economy and the #3 economy on the planet). At the same time, Trump is positioning with China and NK in both trade and nuclear disarmament. Both of these issues effect Japan immensely and both tie into the security of Japan militarily and economically.

In short, timing is everything. You get a better deal if the cards fall in the proper order. There's nothing wrong with getting a few ancillary items squared away before the big cards fall. Which is what he's doing.

Let's call it what it is -- the white / mestizo ruling and middle class are more than happy for the mostly indigenous lower class to leave. They have huge issues in a lot of the indigenous communities with incredibly high illiteracy rates, where people speak their tribal language, can barely speak / read or write in spanish (much less english), have low education rates, and dis-proportionally draw on their limited public welfare programs.

In another context, we might call it ethnic cleansing.

We've never really needed Middle eastern oil. We have always* (usually, there are ups and downs in outputs) had enough for our usage in our neighborhood, between Mexico, Venezuela, Canada, and of course, ourselves.

We just took over the middle east problem at some point (cough Suez Canal Crisis cough) and decided it was our place in the world to keep the worlds oceans safe and navigable after WWII when the British threw in the towel on that role.

There are a couple of different groups of 'The Mexican Army'.

Some of them are serious pipe hitters.

Some of them are as corrupt as they come (see Sicario)

It'll be interesting to see if they are sending the well-equipped guys that kill Cartel members or if they are sending Cartel reinforcements.

-------

Sometimes it's about embracing the power of "and."

About ten years ago, I knew a guy who came here legally (actual asylum, went through the process, etc.)

His problem was that the Army fell into arrears on pay, and his unit leadership decided to start doing Cartel work. The guys who weren't down with that up and deserted to the US.

So I think it's pretty fluid. And I can't imagine it's anything but worse today.

Take back the gown

But I'm not flat as all that

I thought that each expensive gift you'd arranged
Was a token of your esteem
But when I think of what you want in exchange
It all seems a horrible dream
Eek

So take back your mink
To from whence it came
And tell them to alter and rise it
For some other dame

The kid (23 yrs old I think), driving a 3/4 ton truck with a good sized gooseneck trailer crosses the center line colliding with a line of motorcycles riding in staggered formation. Wipes out the bikes riding on the outside - hitting 10 bikes, killing 7 people.MA and NH state police go to arrest him for negligent homicide and they find what they believe to be packets of heroin at his house. Then we learn he had a DWI a few months ago and a less than stellar driving record prior to that.One of the two women killed was in early 40s, lost her 4yr old son to cancer 10yrs ago, her husband to cancer a couple years after that. Was just getting life back together. Just started dating a guy whose bike she was a passenger of.

In fairness, I do think for the UK, France and Israel to go ahead with that--without consulting Ike and Administration first, at a time when the USA was helping rebuild them from the rubble--was folly on their part.

The problem was that the British, the French, and the Israelis acted on their own without informing Eisenhower, much less obtaining agreement from him. And that pissed him off, because they could have started a major war - possibly including the Soviets - that would have dragged us in, because God knows the three of them couldn't have fought their way out of a paper bag at that time.

That's why he was pissed. Another problem was that the actions of those countries smacked of gunboat diplomacy at a time when the U.S. was trying to keep the Third World onside and away from Soviet influence.

Wipes out the bikes riding on the outside - hitting 10 bikes, killing 7 people.MA and NH state police go to arrest him for negligent homicide and they find what they believe to be packets of heroin at his house. Then we learn he had a DWI a few months ago and a less than stellar driving record prior to that.One of the two women killed was in early 40s, lost her 4yr old son to cancer 10yrs ago, her husband to cancer a couple years after that. Was just getting life back together. Just started dating a guy whose bike she was a passenger of.

In other, long ago forums, I remember commenting and discussing this issue. What always came up was the strength at the time of the Pro-Arabists, who believed the US could block the USSR by cementing very strong ties with the Arab World. They were behind the very strong alliance with Pakistan, which basically drove India into the USSR's sphere for 40 years. (India originally tried to make alliance with America in the 50's, Ike's State Department blew them off and decided to arm Pakistan instead)

It also was an extremely anti-Israel State Dep't, always seeking to undercut them. Probably the real reason why the Liberty got "accidentally" blown up at the start of the 6 day war. They had good reason to believe we'd call up the Egyptians and tell them that a surprise attack was on the way.

Yeah, but we didn't know that at the time. Recall that this was the time of the Bandung Conference, and many thought that the Third World was up for grabs.

Also, a lot of people - including most notably the Soviets - had thought Israel was going to go Red because Jews and socialism and all that. That's why the USSR did not block independence for Israel in the Security Council.

So I imagine the reasoning was that if Israel could be pulled out of the Soviet orbit, maybe some other countries could be, too.

But a rank showing of imperialism - as in Suez, or France in Indochina - undercut those efforts by hitting a sore point with the "non-aligned nations."

(To the commenter above: there is no Fourth World. The First World was the developed countries, the Second World was the Communist countries, the Third World was everything else.)

They thoroughly cleaned the car before leaving, knowing full well that getting busted in Mexico for drugs was a bad thing.

On the border, their car was torn apart by the border guards and the guards found a bit of a roach they'd missed in a back seat ash tray.

347 that might assume they also, do not play the Kabuki theater game, and fake efforts to control the cartels are maybe just for PR. idk, but come on ... they know who the cartels are, where they are ... they chose the silver over the lead.


If we push/expose/help ... we could conceivably change things ... but our people (like MS-13 loving friend of all mafias Pelosi) are also taking the silver, and wven selling them the lead (Fast and Furious).

Yeah, I think the problem is that the federal government has way less control over the military then we'd like to think.

Sooo many people from the bottom to the top in Mexico are on the cartels payroll that it's really hard to get anything done, or know who to trust.

Short of sending US troops in, I don't know how much we can really do from our side of the border, to be honest.

Imagine if they collected phone IDs from the location of a Trump rally, then interfered with the communications of those phones. Just slowed them down, or inhibited the flow of information along selected information nodes. Or put together the networks of badthinkers.

They're talking internally about what they need to do to prevent people from selecting Trump again. They could do it in an infinite number of ways, directly.

Me neither. Our friends lived in Mexico City for a while (husband was transferred there by an American company) and they knew to take lots of cash with them wherever they went because if they were stopped by police, their only option was to bribe them. Or else they could go to a Mexican jail for some trumped-up charge.

Yeah, the crystal ball was not working well back in the 1950s.

It actually wasn't such a bad decision at the time. We were at daggers draw with Red China, India was halfway in the bag with the USSR, and we wanted a counterbalance geopolitically. Pakistan at the juncture was the most pro-American of the countries in the region (Iran had almost gone commie under Mossadegh, until he was overthrown in a coup by the CIA and MI6, so Iran was a question mark politically).

Also, at that time, radical Islam was not the thing it has become since. So looking to Pakistan as a counterweight, while not ideal, was not a ludicrous thing to do.

Ehhh... it's more than that. North Indians are Persian by blood (well, mixed), and the Persians (who renamed their country "Iran" which is Farsi for "Aryan") were precursors to the Nordics, and, idk -- somehow in the Nazi racial theory, India was superior to most other people. And Hitler was in to Indian shit, like swastikas and mysticism.

They're pretty ambivalent towards the Brits. Embarrassed by the occupation maybe, but every Indian I've known (and I used to work in IT, so ... a fair number) will admit that the good probably outweigh the bad with the British occupation of India.

I think Indians are just embarrassed about how dirty and disgusting and backwards their country is. Which ... fair enough.

Dear CNN Forum,

I never thought it would happen to me.

It all started when my brave, handsome husband Lucius was away at a military encampment.

The Prince, Tarquin, came to visit Collatia. I was honored to have the Royal Personage stay in our home, and treated him to the finest food and drink. He gave no indication of being anything except what one would expect of a scion from a such a distinguished line.

After our repast, I retired to my quarters, and drifted comfortably to sleep.

Everything changed when I awoke, feeling something cool and wet on my belly, to find the Prince washing my nude body. Somehow he had sneaked around my contingent of slaves, into my room!

I was so alarmed and confused, I didn't know what to say or do... That's when he... changed.

He told me to submit to his advances, or he would kill me and one of the slaves, and tell Lucius he'd caught me in an act of adultery.

I couldn't bear to die with such dishonor, so I let the brute beast take me, then and there.

Every day, I feel like I can't live with this shame, and I fear I'll take my own life.

But I have to admit... the whole thing was pretty danged sexy, ya know?

AmGreatness: To Hell With David French and the Other Corporate Cucks, Josh Hawley Is Right About Big Tech

Correct.

David French and his fellow peacetime conservatives are at it again, wringing their hands and gnashing their teeth as U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) takes a run at curtailing the immense power of Big Tech.

As French channels Neville Chamberlain, the fact is that unless the tech companies are forcefully confronted, now, in the immediate, our self-governing republic will be over in less than a generation and we will be ruled by a tech oligarchy.


French and his types sputter that this is outrageous, that government shouldn't be involved in curtailing the harmful behavior of private companies. First, we would do well to remember that roughly 20 years ago, Washington, D.C. created this problem by carving out the Section 230 exemption for neutral platforms online. Only a fool would think that the tech companies are neutral platforms today. They have, by their own distinct decisions, become publishers and telecommunications companies: if you are making publishing decisions, if you are deploying broadband, if you are creating and streaming live content, you are a publisher or a telecommunications company, and sometimes both.

As these companies have changed of their own volition, Washington, D.C. has continued to live under the happy fiction that they are still nothing more than neutral platforms. What do policymakers not understand? Why are they so blind? Perhaps re-election campaign money, perhaps organizations like National Review being bought off by tech company donations--who can really say? There are all sorts of reasons why we're in defiance of common sense, but it doesn’t remove the fact that we are.

Ask yourselves why these companies get to play by one set of rules while publishers and telecommunications companies are forced to play by others? They are in fact the same, though now the tech companies dwarf many of their fellow publishers and telecommunications companies yet still get to play by rules that favor them. This is in defiance of free-market principles: government isn’t supposed to pick winners and losers. It is supposed to create a fair playing field for everyone to compete according to the same rules and regulations so that the consumer benefits. Instead, we see it creating rigged games that allow monopolies to develop.

Tim Pool made an interesting point.

Only a speaker or publisher of claimed defamatory content can be sued.

Not being a speaker or publisher of a defamatory statement gives you total immunity from suit. You're just a guy, you had nothing to do with the tort alleged.

Section 230 specifically says that "neutral content platforms" shall not be deemed to be the "speaker or publisher" of a claimed defamatory statement made by a third party using their service -- hence, the complete immunity from suit. You can't be sued for something someone else said, obviously.

Now newspapers can be sued for the defamatory remarks of, say, an interview subject. They are publishers of that defamatory statement -- they chose to publish it. The interview subject made the statement, but then they chose to publish it themselves, becoming another "speaker" of the defamation.

Now, "neutral content platforms" are never considered "speakers" of third-party defamations (or any third-party crime involving speech, such as offering to sell contraband or conspiring to commit a crime). But a newspaper or media company --or this blog -- could be.

The corporate cucks claim that you cannot put restrictions on Google, Facebook, or Twitter as regards their right to censor opinions they disagree with because that constitutes "compelled speech." You're compelling them to speak things they do not believe, the cucks' argument goes.

But... section 230 states that, as a legal matter, they are not considered the "speakers" of any statement made on their "neutral content platforms."

So which is it? Are they the speakers of these words -- in which case, like a newspaper or tv station, they'd have every right to exercise editorial judgment and decide what they wish their company to say -- or are they not the speakers of these words, which is their claim whenever someone tries to sue them?

As it stands, they are speakers when it comes to their power to block people from speaking on their platforms -- and thus can indulge in the vice of censorship -- but not speakers when it comes to people suing them for what other people said on their platforms.

Choose one or the other: Either you are a speaker of other people's words or you're not. You can't forever choose one and then the other when it's in your interest to have the Clown Nose On or the Clown Nose Off.

Also, note that these platforms are quick to ban groups like the Proud Boys even though the Proud Boys aren't hate groups routinely engaged in violence, and yet rarely ban Antifa groups, which are hate groups that routinely use these platforms to target people for violence, and to coordinate violence.

Why should Google and FaceBook and Twitter have the cover of section 230 when it's quite clear they are affirmatively bending their own rules to allow violent domestic terrorist groups to plot and scheme using their platform? They've demonstrated both the capability and desire to ban political groups for far less than what Antifa does; if they're permitting antifa to remain, why should they not be parties to a lawsuit that targets antifa for its violence? They have chosen to continue offering their services to known law-breakers, for purposes of law-breaking.

Having put in place a draconian and expensive system for banning some speakers -- can any of these companies say "We just don't have the money or staff to ban criminal speech"?

If you have the time and personnel to ban Crowder, you have the time and personnel to ban Antifa. And if you choose not to -- then you are liable for their crimes.

If Google and Facebook and Twitter want to ban Crowder or Carl Benjamin, they say "We're speakers, to deny our right to censor is to force us to utter speech we disagree with!"

But try to sue them for knowingly and willfully acting as a plotting tool for antifa, and they say, "But we're not speakers! We can't be sued for others' speech?"

Here's the algorithm:

If someone is complaining of your censorship:

1) Claim that you are effectively the speaker of statements made on your site, and say you have First Amendment right to not be compelled to be the speaker of things you disagree with.

But if someone sues because you did not delete and ban conspirators, contraband-sellers, and defamers:

2) Claim that you are legally not the speaker of those statements, thanks to the Community Decency Act, section 230.

So a publisher has the right to not print people's speech if they don't like it, or find it objectionable, but they also have the responsibility of checking to see if all statements published by them are legal and true, and may face legal suit (or possibly even criminal prosecution) if they're not.

But when it comes to Tech Monopoly Publishers -- they have the right to censor, but none of the responsibility to patrol for legality and accuracy, on pain of legal consequence, that publishers do.

Meanwhile, while acting like publishers in all relevant ways.

Does anyone see the problem here? Or are a lot of Cuckservatives and Ruling Caste Republicans just paid a lot of money by corporations not to see the problem?

This is just one of the incongruities that arises when a company is permitted to claim one status -- "We're speakers and you can't compel us to permit speech we disagree with!" -- for one set of circumstances but invoke an entirely contradictory status -- "We're not speakers at all!" -- for others.

It's time to resolve this.

These companies are in fact media companies -- the largest and most profitable in the world. Google makes NBC look like a corner shop.

And if they themselves are going to willingly, knowingly abandon their positions as "non-speakers" -- as bona fide neutral content platforms -- then they should join the rest of the media in being potential liable for defamation or conspiracies to commit violence that they permit their platforms to be used for.

In addition to being big Lefties, it's not legal action that pressures these tech companies to silence users, it's that the Left activists, paid and unpaid, will mob them over the day's designated Emanuel Goldstein and scream "You provide them a platform (or service) and therefore you are Supporting them. Cease supporting them or will will interpret this as agreement with his/her/their message!!!"

And they totally buy into that premise, that twitter allowing a user to tewwt things = twitter is OK with the content.

All they have to do is reject that premise.
They won't.
Legal action, lawsuits and Congressional action must force the change in premise to what is legal, that providing a platform =/= agreement.

But rightwing lawyers only care about billable hours. That is the full extent of their interest in anything at all. You would never know someone like Kurt Schlichter is a lawyer who has the power to bring class action suits. All he does is moan on Twitter and pimp his books.

86 Again ... this is all going after Big Tech for the wrong things. THere are legtitimate spots to go after them - for colluding to restrain competition, for fake ad clicks they are charging huge amounts for, for all sorts of stuff.

But your real problem is with the millions - tens of millions - of idiot Americans who belong to FarceBook and who use Google and Twitter. That is the real issue.

And the argument about being held liable in courts for speech ... that only shifts the focus from the tech companies to the laughable courts we have that allow all sorts of insane, intellectually offensive suits and seem to have no problems finding totally innocent parties liable of all sorts of crap and doling out insane judgments that only a total retard would consider anything even in the same universe as fair or equitable ...

We are trapped between a bunch of rocks and a bunch of hard places - all of our own making and pretty much none having anything to do with the tech turds.

We have campaign finance laws that are insane. And they are never actually applied in any fair way. THey couldn't be, since they are so crazy. We all know that most of the MFM should have their reports scored as in-kind contributions - and we know they are intended as such (the idiots even admit to it all over the place). But that can't be done because that would just lead to widespread chaos in everything.

Breaking up Google would ahve no effect because Big Tech colludes as it is. That collusion is what should be gone after ... not trying to start having suits pop up over everything printed on a web site or forcing all sites to admit anybody and anything they want to say ...

Any stylish cuck will have several pastel shades of Tutus but real cucksman always wears pink Crocs while fluffing.

94 Why do the cucks always like quoting themselves?

Is it megalomania? I mean it sounds like something Castro would do.

Two major ways to tell if someone is a Never-Trump corporate cuck:

1. They always find ways to retweet something from Jake Tapper. As if he is the only source of real news in the world.

2. They quote themselves like they are great figures from history.

Hawley is quietly impressing me. Hope he develops into a Trump disciple. Lord knows we need as many as we can get.

97 We are all part of the problem if we don't start calling Republican Senators to let them know this is an issue that we want fixed.

I made a bunch of phone calls today and guess what? I was the first call regarding this issue.

That's A Huge Problem!
