The Morning Rant

"You know, I'm about ready to do a deal on reparations. Wait, don't go, this is not going to be 'The Conservative Case For Caving In On Reparations', no, you'll have to go to the Cuckshed Bulwark Online for that, but here it is: we give reparations, we will make one TRILLION dollars available to any American citzen of African American descent (and we'll use the old 'one drop rule' for mixed-race determination) and in return, everyone will have to finally SHUT UP, once and for all, about racism. That's it. Finished. It's done. You don't get to talk about it, whine about it, bitch about it any more. Disband Black Lives Matter. Dissolve the NAACP, abolish the Congressional Black Caucus, and revoke Farrakhan's cult church's tax-exempt status. No more bitching and moaning, you've been paid off and you now have to get on with your lives. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will now have to get real jobs. African Americans can pool all of that sweet, sweet reparations cash and use it to rebuild Detroit, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and other inner cities without any interference from evil racist white guys. We could all live together in peace and love and harmony. Thank God Almighty, we'll be free at last. For a measely trillion dollars, it would almost be worth it. But the reason this is not a serious proposal is that I realize that even with this payout, it's not going to end there. Here's a book that argues for giving reparations for women for all of the uncompensated work that they've done over the years. And perhaps you've heard that Elizabeth Warren wants to give reparations to homosexuals for supposed injustices in the U.S. tax code due to 'unequal marriage laws'. As soon as we pay off one reparation claim, every last aggrieved minority will be lining up for their slice of the reparations pie. In fact, they'll probably even invent some new aggrieved groups just for the purpose of cashing in. And holy smokes, this is where intersectionality is really going to pay off big time. Because it's going to be reparations now, reparations tomorrow, and reparations forever."

I want to address flag burning--a VERY hot button issue for me.
First, understand that flag burning is in NO WAY an expression of free speech, irrespective of SCOTUS ruling it is.

It is malicious and wilful DESECRATION of our national symbol, and by extension a denial of the country. I will listen to no rebuttal, it is undeniably desecration and a display of hatred toward America.
There is no expression of speech here, simply a physical act of sheer hate.

30 Now for MY reparations rant:

No. Not one fucking penny.

I am not responsible for anything except what I, personally do. Trying to blame me for what some White folks did two hundred years ago is fucking racist bullshit.

My people came to Iowa from Norway in the early 20th century and quietly farmed and made other tall, grumpy Iowegians.

We didn't own slaves, we barely knew what a black person looked like.

Fuck all y'all.

32 The pic of Vic Damone looks like it might be from the later Sixties, when even clean-cut-looking entertainers grew their hair out a bit and wore out-there, trendy fashions. Johnny Carson came out one night in a tuxedo with a turtleneck, I think, and I know he wore a Nehru jacket at least once.

3. My plan on reparations is the same as my plan for a universal basic income: you can have it, but only if you forswear all other forms of welfare, until the very day you drop. Which will never be acceptable, which is why I oppose both reparations and UBI.

4. My chemistry teacher never gave us cool demonstrations. I feel so cheated.

37 While it would be a bargain at any price to put the issue to bed forever, you're also right in observing that it'd never work that way. These people have built whole careers out of being victims and convincing others that they, too, are victims. It's easy work and makes them rich.

62 Two questions?

Given that scientists claim that race is a social construct, not a real thing, how will we be able to say that one "race" should be allowed to recieve reparations? How can we tell?

Secondly, since it's argued that ALL humanity originated from Africa, that would mean all people in the US are actually African Americans, opening up reparations for everyone.

And lastly, since we are able to now claim sex as a choice, not a biological reality, it would only stand to argue that something like skin color is likewise a matter of choice, not biology. As such, if I self-identify as a light skinned black man, I should logically have must as much claim to reparations as a modern dark skinned black man, since we have both experienced slavery the same...that is to say, neither of us have any experience with it.

Catman, my Bavarian Monster Wagon is a '15 328i, the base model sedan. Looks like an upper-middle-class grocery-getter -- but it has a small starship engine under the hood. It's got the most power and at the same time the best gas mileage I've had in 40 years of driving.

The manual says 91 octane minimum, so if I mix 3-4 gal. of 87 with 12 of 93, it comes out just at that. And if the price difference between 87 and 93 is big enough, I do that and save $2.00 or more per fill-up.

102 3. My plan on reparations is the same as my plan for a universal basic income: you can have it, but only if you forswear all other forms of welfare, until the very day you drop. Which will never be acceptable, which is why I oppose both reparations and UBI.

Posted by: joncelli, bludgeoning with a pouncing seize at June 24, 2019 11:22 AM (RD7QR)

That's also the only way I could support UBI. Take what we already spend on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Housing Assistance, Food Stamps, etc... Divide by the number of US citizens (citizens only), cut everyone a check, no strings. Replace all forms of welfare and dismiss their administrators.

123 That's Anne Bancroft's birth name

When Mel Books was casting Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles, he asked to see her legs. Kahn shot back that she knew what kind of "producer" he was and refused. Brooks explained that Lily von Shtupp was supposed to be a Marlene Dietrich parody and, as such, he needed to know whether Kahn had the right soft of legs. So Kahn allowed him to look, but sternly ordered him not to touch.

According to Kahn, all through the shoot, Brooks would invite her to dinner with himself and wife Bancroft, so he could prove to her that he really was a devoted husband and not a typical Hollywood sleazebag.

Whedon is a good enough writer to write stuff he doesn't believe in. He's also a whore.

Speaking of, hooking up with a whore is rarely a good idea. Hiring them often is. Those are two very different things and the former is fraught. The latter can be lonely.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to question President Donald Trump's imposition of more than $4 billion in steel tariffs, turning away an appeal that challenged his use of national security as the legal justification for his trade agenda.

The appeal by a steel industry trade group and two of its members contended that the provision Trump invoked, known as Section 232, gives the president such broad discretion to impose tariffs on national security grounds that it violates the Constitution.

And even if everyone sold ... doesn't matter, the government will buy up the rest (just put it on my tab), keep markets soaring. To infinity ... and beyond.

Still trying to figure out how women were 'underpaid' as housewives. The
received half the household income, and say over how all of it was
spent.

If they were undercompensated for household chores, then so were their husbands.

182 It appears I am screwed.

Bought a suppressor for my Ruger PC carbine last year for $600. Sent off the paperwork and a check for $200 in June 2018.

Been waiting patiently for the ATF approval. Talked to the store/range owner in early May and he said it should be in soon.

Went by the store three weeks ago and it was closed with a sign on the door that said it was closed due to medical reasons. Went back a week later and the same sign was there so I called the store. No answer and the answering service has been turned off.

Sent an email to the owner and he said it would open soon and my property is safe. Went back again a week later and the same sign is up on the door. So I email the owner again a week ago and haven't received a response. Sent another email yesterday asking him to call me to see if my approval is in. No response yet.

I have a sinking feeling that he failed a surprise ATF audit back in May. The day I was there two ATF agents were inventorying everything in his store. He said it was just a random check. I suspect it was not and I fear that he has either had his FFL suspended or revoked.


If that is the case I will never see my stuff again. I have the suppressor in there along with 4 firearms on consignment. There is an ATF branch office in Sherman so I will go and see if they can help me but I am not holding out much hope.

I was thinking that given Ancestry-dot-com provides genealogy research AND dna testing that someone might consider leveraging the combination of the two. Descendants of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings have traced their family roots, so why couldn't others. However, this discussion inevitably gets into the awful "one drop of blood" zone, where one would use their genes to certify victimhood, and what % of family relationship to a known slave relative is "enough" for reparations/proof of historical victimhood, and gains them access to whatever systemic changes/benefits the reparations crowd is also looking for.

Its because the "wages" are only calculated out at an hourly rate.

Shared or covered housing, utlitlties, groceries health insurance, etc is never factored in.

274 Glad someone brought forward irongrampa's flag comment.

I've always stood with the 'private flag burning' opinion -- if you want to burn your own flag, up to you. It's a copy, not the Old Glory that waves forever in our hearts and which stands for the Republic to which I pledge allegiance. Burn your copy of the Constitution and the Bible, too, and it won't change a word of either one.

Howsomever, should I see some ardent patriot running in to rescue the flag and stomp the flag-burner, I... wouldn't object. (Run vid of that baseball game flag rescue.)

In Wal-Mart last night, there was a little girl running ahead of her dad's shopping cart, smiling, waving the Red, White, and Blue. Looked like Dad approved. That means more to me than all the fag blurners ever will.

If my history will serve - and as we are constantly reminded - whites had no problem keeping blacks in slavery for 400 years, until another bunch of whites freed them (this latter part is generally left out by those who remind us about the first part).

Holiday On The Hudson
George Benjamin Luks

From the Cleveland Museum's description (emphasis mine)

A sun-dappled scene of middle-class leisure, Holiday on the Hudson is an atypical work by Luks, who more often turned to gritty tenement subjects for inspiration. Throughout his career, the painter fashioned himself as a brash, profane, and hard-drinking antagonist to New York’s genteel art-world establishment. The museum purchased this work just four months before the artist was beaten to death in the wake of a speakeasy argument.

I like the painting. I like the colors. I like the fact that it's boats, because boats are awesome.

It's weird that they're all pontooned together. The only way to get to your boat is to step over five others. And if you leave then there's a gap. So it must be some sort of party, an organized event where we're all going to raft up together.

It's interesting how many works in museum collections never see the light of day... for various reasons. Usually a museum will keep specific works on a regular rotation. These are the one that give the museum prestige or are guest favorites. Some stay in storage forever because they are so delicate that just bringing them out would damage them. And some just aren't good enough to be shown but were donated by a major patron's great uncle on their mom's cousin's side so they can't get rid of them.

110 creeper #96: willow, we need to do something about that. J.J. busts his butt to get the EMT up, with more content than you'd see on any other blog, and then we only have an hour and a half to discuss all that good stuff.
It's a travesty.


I sometimes forego the art thread comments to finish up on the Report.

And, you know, like the book and pet threads, conversations could continue after the next post is up. It's not actually required that all corgis run to the art thread when it goes up.

But whoever stays behind will have a small audience.

Which is why, annoying as it may be, we bring forward discussions from previous threads. Like this which I posted last thread:

Ardbeg Jun22 ONT#412:
So it turns out the story of the crazy lady accusing Trump of rape is a subplot from a 2012 episode of Law and Order SVU, right down to the name of the store:

The Cleveland Museum is a beautiful place and the art is great. I went for the first time a couple years ago. I had no idea of the range of art work there. The Asian wing was marvelous. I was pleasantly surprised by a set of very early Christian sculptures. I had no idea they were in Cleveland and they were featured in a tour. I was stunned. I had only ever seen them in textbooks. They're spectacular and bigger than I thought.

170 So, I saw a bullfight in Spain, and I unabashedly and non-ironically loved it.

The pageantry of the spectacle. The terrifying reality of a bull at full speed. The physical reality of several men weakening the beast until one man faces it alone in order to stab it in the heart through the back. The actual danger on display.

When I usually think of "culture", it's usually about what kind of new spices to put on chicken or what kind of music or dance people do. It's so similar to what I experience that to see a sport so fundamentally different from what I'm used to was amazing. This wasn't men going against each other to see who was stronger. This wasn't one man going up against inanimate nature. This was a man up against a living creature with the very real danger of goring and death (I thought a horse had died at one point).

Dolley hates me for enjoying it, but she didn't even go.

181 Here is a copy of the felony complaint I sent the FBI about MacAleenan:
"I submit the following criminal complaint in compliance with my 18 U.S.
Code 1 obligation to report federal felonies to appropriate law
enforcement personnel.

It was reported in the Washington Examiner on Saturday June 22, 2019
that two former and three current administration officials told the
Examiner that Acting DHS Secretary Kevin MacAleenan was the source of
the leak in the Washington Post on Friday, June 21, 2019, about the ICE
enforcement raid scheduled for Sunday, June 23, 2019 to deport illegal
aliens who had been denied sanctuary in the United States.

The Examiner story pointed out that very few people were aware of the
details of the raid, and that Secretary MacAleenan had traveled on an
airplane with the author of the Washington Post leak on Wednesday June
19, 2019. The Examiner story pointed out that the Washington Post leak
placed law enforcement personnel at risk, and that Secretary MacAleenan
had argued vehemently, behind closed doors, against the scheduled
enforcement raid.

If the Examiner story is true, it would mean that besides the laws
against leaking law enforcement raid information, that Secretary
MacAleenan also violated 18 U.S. Code 1324 (A)(iii):

"Any person who - ...


(iii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has
come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law,
conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal,
harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any
building or any means of transportation;"

Which carries a penalty of five years in federal prison for each count
of violation. Since the scheduled raid expected to round up two thousand
illegal Aliens, the potential criminal sentence for Secretary
MacAleenan, the author of the Washington Post article - Nick Miroff, and
the editors of the Washington Post [for conspiracy to violate 18 U.S.
Code 1324 (A)(iii)] comes to ten thousand years in prison.

185 My last week at the office. Feeling very low.

Another thing that bites: they're just completing a widening from two to four lanes of the Sam Houston Tollway I travel to work. Three years of sweating it out, getting stuck in traffic, lane shifts and closures and I'll never get to enjoy the finished result.

188 I know it's not everyone here's cup of tea but we had an exhibition of Yayoi Kusama infinity rooms last year.

Wasn't that a neat experience? I was mildly skeptical before going to see it, figuring it attracted dumbasses and cocksuckers, but everyone was so happy there it even won me over. Plus while I was waiting, one of the volunteers worked in a local craft brewery so we had a nice conversation.

That is such a delicate balancing act. Our local gallery sold off all its works more than 300 years old to focus on Modernism/PostModernism almost exclusively. It caused quite the ruckus around here. Saw one of the works at the Met about a year later. So at least their going to good places. I believe Cleveland got a beautiful Gandharan Buddha.

199 Captain, it really was. I had seem a couple of them before at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh - they aren't all winners, but the ones that work really work. Only downside is with the crowds you only get 30 to 45 seconds inside of them - some of them would be great to just sit and relax in for 5 or 10 minutes.

Or if you're like Jackstraw a few of those would probably be mindblowing if you had some of the lechuga del Diablo in your system.

264 One more thing about the Cleveland museum. When my Hatettes were young tykes, Mrs H enrolled them in Saturday classes there which was a bargain just from a materials standpoint. Since the museum is off the beaten path with Case Western surrounding part of it, they offered classes for adults. One of the instructors, Barbara Kraska I think was her name, was earthily outstanding in urging people to get as close as possible to paintings to figure out how they did what they did in the Impressionist room. Plus she gave entertaining. Recently I ran across a folder of the work I did in the attic and was impressed by how, good isn't the right word, non inept it was.

275 TSA can be very confusing...At ORD I got in the wrong line and ended up going through the regular line with my suitcase, and carry on. (I have pre -check). It all went through even though stuff in my almost checked bag went through with stuff that shouldn't be in it. It was Sunday later pm and the line was long. They were yelling at everyone to keep moving. But I got through, and did a gate check for the bag. Never happen at a smaller airport with far less hassle.

284 A few points about filing a felony complaint with the FBI:
1. 18 U.S. Code 1 requires any person having knowledge of the commission of a federal felony to report it to federal law enforcement. It does not say anything about how you came to have that knowledge - but it is a federal felony for you to fail to report your knowledge.
2. When you file a complaint with federal law enforcement the rest of the process is secret - even were you to ask the FBI about the progress of your complaint - they won't tell you anything. The case only becomes public at the point of an unsealed Grand Jury indictment or of an arrest as a result of a sealed indictment.

3. The FBI is required by law to investigate good faith complaints.
4. The problem is not the FBI - so much as it is the U.S. Attorneys - who aren't prosecuting obvious felonies that a first year law student would win against Perry Mason for the defense.

And anyone who chooses to be pictured in a Donna Karan coat is wearing one from the current collection, and will know exactly what year that collection was.

Sen. Bernie Sanders and House progressives are unveiling legislation canceling all student debt, going further than a signature proposal by Sen. Elizabeth Warren as the two jockey for support from the party's liberal base.

"In a generation hard hit by the Wall Street crash of 2008, it forgives all student debt and ends the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation to a lifetime of debt for the 'crime' of getting a college education," Sanders said in remarks prepared for delivery at a news conference Monday with the proposal's House sponsors, Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, and Pramila Jayapal, D-Washington.

pin was pulled, but the crew figured it out and wouldn't let it happen,
as they couldn't swim.

335 286 Palp is a reminder to buddy up. Make sure that someone knows you in real life.

Let's say your motorcycle goes off the road and you end up in a valley obscured from the road and it bursts into flame and you can't get it off you because your back is broken so you die in pain and terror and then coyotes abuse your carcass and when LEOs finally get to you it takes dental records and a tattoo to identify you.

Well, then your mother goes through your computer and when she's over being shocked by the pron she finds that you have a Horde friend who can report back on the tragedy.

Don't you want the Horde to know the grisly details?

373 Maybe Palp hasn't posted in forever because he told a recount of his accident that included shattering both legs, yet was able to hold the "illegal" that hit him at gun point until the police arrived. Then, rather than being arrested for pointing a gun at the presumed illegal ( how would he know the person was an illegal?) he said that he had a great bonding experience with the cop at the accident scene over the make/model of his fire arm.

A great story, though.

408 O/T - ethanol edition
We took our 2007 Volvo XC90 up through east Texas on 92 octane premium gas. The 200 mile trip revealed gas mileage of 19.25 mpg.
Gassed up at a marina that sold ethanol free regular 87 octane and on the trip back home we got 23.5 mpg.

That's a 22% increase with lower octane. This is why we're pissed about burning corn syrup in our cars.

Get to the border and the first car, with the soon-to-be groom in it) was denied entry because he and someone else in the vehicle had prior DWI convictions. Border Patrol invited them inside for interviews. 3 hours later -- no entry.
We ended up getting dinner at some shady chinese restaurant buying some drink called a "suffering bastard" for the groom.

484 The Cleveland Museum general collection is always free admission. Only (expensive) traveling exhibitions carry a charge. A fantastic gift.

The other thing I like about this museum is the broad collection, because you can grab a little exposure to many areas of art, many people like the depth of the Asian and sculpture collections. The museum even has a beautiful Sargent they bought in the last year or two and a couple of Turners. You know, if you like that sort of thing.

The Morning Report - 6/24/19

mcaleenan.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a brand new week and we've got lots of ground to cover on multiple fronts so off we go. In the lead, a story that encompasses both the immigration and border crisis plus the insurrection against our President and the will of the people by entrenched, Deep State globalists. Yesterday, ICE was scheduled to conduct a massive 10-city sweep to nab illegal aliens who had exhausted all legal avenues to remain in-country and then summarily kick their collective ass over the Rio Grande. In the event, the raids were cancelled and postponed because evidence suggests acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan leaked the plans to the press and then the Dems shrieked in protest. That wouldn't necessarily cause the President to back down but you can bet your sweet ass everyone who was sweating out an appeal has now gone to ground. It should be noted that there is no positive proof that McAleenan is the guilty party but his record as well as strong indications from several reliable sources that have worked with him, including Tom Homan, Trump's candidate for Border Czar and now a Fox News contributor dropped strong hints that McAleenan is indeed the guilty party.

Whether it's the attempt by the likes of Clinton, Obama, Clapper, Brennan, Comey et al to figuratively (and even literally in some hearts and minds) cut off the head of the Trump presidency or whether it's death by a thousand cuts from petty bureaucrats and apparatchiks like (allegedly) McAleenan who pull criminal stunts like this, there is only one way to describe it: insurrection that borders on and even crosses over into treasonous acts. If McAleenan is guilty, he should be arrested and prosecuted for interfering in the conduct of criminal investigations and aiding and abetting the harboring and/or flight of a fugitive. Add one count for every alien that was on the list to be nabbed and that should keep him rotting in jail for a few hundred years should suffice.

Wait, what am I saying? This is the country where Andrew McCabe, James Comey, and Hillary Clinton are free as a bird while Michael Flynn has his life in ruins and Paul Manafort rots in jail as a political prisoner, convicted of crimes that were based on no more than manufactured evidence and trumped up charges. At least the fingers are pointing with some speed at an apparent guilty party, but there must be punishment, swift and severe pour encourager les autres.

In other news within the topic, Nancy Palsi is gloating through her dentures about the sabotaged ICE operations and stating that instead of enforcing our laws, the President should issue a mass amnesty. Meanwhile, a cross section of politicians, including Mike Crapo (follow the link to CNS News for other examples), affirm Trump's right to enforce the law. Wait, let that sink in. We now have to affirm the obvious while our domestic enemies claim that doing so is both immoral and somehow illegal. Elsewhere, the Anthony Quinn candidate Blotto O'Rourke declares we must give illegal alien women free abortions or it's The Handmaid's Tale, plus some depressing links about the growing ratio of Latinos to Caucasians in Texas and the drivers licenses for illegal aliens is all about swamping the voter rolls, as if we didn't know.

Shifting back or sideways depending on your perspective, in the Clinton/Obama Coup and Congressional Persecution of Trump, yesterday, a cache of documents about Trump's vetting process after the 2016 election were leaked, supposedly indicating red flag appointments that were ignored. No doubt, the agitprop media will spin this faster than a Farsi uranium enrichment plant doing the Stuxnet dervish boogaloo, so my reaction is meh. Meanwhile, John Podesta's Center for American Progress Dissolution is pumping dark money into groups engaging in law-fare against the President, the globular cluster currently known as Jerry Nadler is a disgusting sexist pig and deserves censure (and a knuckle sammich) for his treatment of Hope Hicks, and James Clapper has got the fear of Barr in him. I hope.

Dem Scandal Sheet: Bro-Fo Omar is drawing a lot more unwanted attention regarding her sham marriages and immigration swindle, Chiquita Khruschev declines the offer to visit Auschwitz to face the truth and the hateful stupidity of her concentration camp drivel, and Democrats are steaming over the millionaire who exposed the tip of the iceberg of food stamp fraud. Meh, the whole program itself is a fraud. Lastly, in the Official Democrat Party Sanctioned Joo-Hatred, severely heterosexual Cory Booker won't rule out meeting with Louis Farrakhan. We should arrange a nice lunch on the rooftop of Rockefeller Center. The Rainbow Room (nudge-nudge-wink-wink). Watch out for that first step, Cory...

Civil War 2.0: Antifa Terrorists are putting up posters with Tucker Carlson's home address on it and calling for confrontations while the Michigan GOP headquarters was defaced with anti-ICE graffiti. Well, when Don Lemon among others refer to Trump as Hitler, it's no wonder that you get this as well as Dick Durbin-connected mass shooter James Hodgkinson.

Politics: Blue on blue action as Mayor Buttplug gets ripped by Black Lives Matter thugs and heckled by others at a hometown town hall in the wake of a police shooting that resulted in the death of a black man, Rabbi Fischer cuts the Democrats' 2020 aspirations to ribbons, David Harsanyi calls out Joey Bidet as a flat-out segregationist, NY Post editorial board on the Sandersnista/Fauxca-Has-Been fight and other things, Joe Sestak becomes Dem candidate 23 (or is it 24?), a warning about the Dems and Pennsylvania, the latest Trump rape accuser is a code 10 wackadoo, a great essay on the inverse proportion of politicians' knowledge about a problem to the sanity of their plans, Margot Cleveland at The Federalist on what to look for when Trump live-Tweets the Dem debates, and while the Dems may never win back Trump voters, we still have a GOP that will sabotage his potential disciples who want to run.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Online knitting community conducts anti-Trump supporter purge, two GOP reps make noise, one calling to revoke Al Jazeera's Congressional press credentials and the other with a bill to defund PBS, a WaPo affiliate labels segregationists as Republican, and the downside of banning flag buring with a look at the EU's totalitarian edict on the practice.

Abortion: De Bolshevik ramps up baby-killing to eleventy-leven and a UK judge forces a woman to kill the kid.

Foreign Desk: The Iran situation still leads the pack with a bevy of stories including Secretary of State Pompeo traveling to the region for talks with the KSA, GCC and others, and at least a half dozen other links praising him for not pulling the trigger. Yet. The withdrawal from that nuke deal sellout and the ramping up of sanctions will cause them to crumble from within. There is no need to risk potentially ruining his chances at re-election and more crucially risking our blood and treasure in yet another war that in order to win means a full - and I mean "full" - commitment to win by killing and destroying on a massive scale. No. Trump is playing this perfectly so far. The reactions from enemies foreign and domestic I think bear this out. Also, last week, the Krauts were our allies and this week evidently not. Elsewhere, Men wearing burkas are douching Londoners with acid, the Boris Johnson follies, the undergirding element of Christianity that elevated the Hong Kong protests (and Christianity scares the shit out of the godless mongoloid Chi-com tyrants), and lastly, South Africa goes mad with the killing of a white farmer. I defy anyone to read or hear about this in the state-run agitprop media. Tragic.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Daniel Greenfield with the story about how the killing of two Muslims over a parking dispute by a raging leftist atheist got etched in stone as an anti-Muslim hate crime.

Domestic Desk: Elena Kagan goes nuts as SCOTUS hands down huge property rights win, and health workers want court to tell unions to stop shaking them down for dues.

The Economy: A look at Fed interest rate policy, Geoff Norman on the sad sorry tale of eternal ethanol subsidies, and the delusion of cheap goods vis a vis free trade and tariffs.

Crime and Punishment: Clarence Thomas rips Brett Kavanaugh in a dissent about capital punishment.

Education: If academia ever was great, a look at what killed it.

Red Greens: Go nukes, and the summer snows of "global warming."

Feminazism, Homosexualization, Transgender Psychosis: Fauxca-Has-Been wants reparations... for homo couples. Umm, bondage is not the same as slavery, toots. Also, stating the obvious about the nature of men and women can get you fired from the faculty lounge.

Hither and Yon: Christian Toto on Roger "Maxine" Waters' new album that's light on the Joo-hate but heavy on the Maduro love, Chik-Fil-A to open in Seattle; that's like sending in the mitzvah tank to the front of the Finsbury Park mosque. Also, a look at the shenanigans of the Tampa Bay Rays' owner trying to swindle two cities in a bid to dump the team, the rise of the anti-globalists sees a concomitant rise of the embrace of collectivism by the mind-numbed masses, and finally my good friend and brilliant author Harry Stein takes an in-depth look at how journalist Eugene Lyons' chronicle of the leftists of the 1930s is startlingly relevant to today's political situation. Do give it a read.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

8 Before we get into all those links above I wish to alert the Morons to this:

I will alert the Morons to this story on Fox's website. You used to see a lot of shit like this when Obama was President because he wanted even more federal control of the utilities than they already have.

Because the infrastructure is so antiquated, weather triggers multiple blackouts per year in the U.S. Blackouts which collectively cost the nation upwards of $30 billion in spoiled inventory, lost wages, and repair of the grid.


They cite as an example the blackout caused by a line failure in OH a few years ago. They don't mention the fact that the blackout was caused by NIMBYs, NAMBYs, and NOPEs in the NE who have succeeded in preventing new plants from being built. So during severe weather they were importing huge amounts of power from mid-South utilities. That power has to get there some way and the line which was carrying the majority of the power was severely overloaded. that is why it failed. Not because it was 'old'. Don't be fooled by this shit.

54 I knew this was going to happen, but it still pisses me off - the name of silent legend Lillian Gish is stripped from a theater at Bowling Green State U:

https://tinyurl.com/y558oonw

And what pisses me off even more is that no one will suffer because of this ahistorical, pig-ignorant decision - not the school, not the administrators, not the teachers, not the crybully students -no one.

Oh, people will sign letters of protest and make noise on line, but in the end the theater will be renamed for some SJW icon and we will all be expected to accept it. No alumni will pull their funding, no protests will make the administration's life a living hell, no harm or foul will ever come to this fucking cow college.

Which is why, as I go through some threads where posters muse about the coming civil war and the blessed day when the left finally goes too far, that I want to reach through the screen and give people a dope slap.

If James Hodgkinson wasn't enough for a massive march on DC ending with decorated street lamps, there never will be a straw to break the camel's back.

60 That new Chick-Fil-A opening in Seattle shouldn't have any protesters, because it is actually on the far north end of the city limits, not the downtown or in-city areas. It is a neighborhood area, and cars (or buses) are needed to get around.
If it is like any of the other three CFA's that have opened up in the greater Puget Sound area in the last couple of years, there will be long lines circling the parking lot, waiting to get their fresh Peach Hate Shakes (now in season!)

My take on DHS - the details were leaked and even if McAleenan didn't directly do it, he's responsible as acting head. Time for him to "resign so he can spend more time with family."

He's proving time and again that he values the court more than he values the constitution and its original intent. He is so clearly wrong on Flowers that a neophyte could see it and Thomas points that out.

She's liberal, but her dissents are usually thoughtful and not drenched in this kind of pathos. Guaranteed she's thinking about Roe, at a minimum. Plus the fact that SCOTUS is putting things more into the hands of the people, as opposed to the all powerful, self-anointed, corrupt judiciary.

Knick basically restored the Fifth Amendment, and it's about time they rolled back the dictatorial hand of the federal government. Now they need to revisit Kelo...

128 EU Flag Burn Ban Reveals Bloc's Totalitarian Instincts; Americans Should Differ
_______

I don't buy the argument. In fact, I've never bought the overuse of "totalitarian" in these cases. It may be a bad idea (right now, I'd vote against it), but it doesn't fit the totalitarian MO. That involves the ruled never being able to know whether they've crossed a line. Here, that would not be the case.

I've also been skeptical about the argument that actions like flag desecration are really "speech", and thus protected, like child drag queens. Let's concentrate on actual speech - you know, that which has determinate meaning - first. And THAT is what is actually under attack.

* And it allows you to open a TOR window for privacy, which is clever.

140 Haven't watched any of the women's' world cup games - funny how "I hate you, I hate America but pay me and support me" will do that - but apparently the England v Cameroon game was a nasty affair so I went looking for highlights. Cameroon went full mental - spitting, stomping, sitting out etc due to some overturned calls via video review. Funny part was the criticism of the Cameroonians went from correctly calling their behaviour boorish, dangerous and childish to excusing them because raaaaaacist. One "analyst" claimed they didn't have such technology back in their country so, excusable. Tape don't lie though.

157 The unmentioned elephant in the E Jean Carrol rape accusation is even by her "account" she just met DJT and agreed "playfully" to model lingerie for him in a dressing room. Excuse freaking me?
A) I'm not saying this even happened, or
B) That forcing yourself on someone is ever acceptable but
But how can this even remotely resemble a normal interaction? How is this not, even by her account, the grayest of gray areas?

Interestingly, almost every lead news story starts with "assaulted in a dressing room" as though DJT was hanging around the ladies dressing rooms and forced his way in.

Ridiculously, one quick read of a Vanity Fair story describes that he "steered her" into the dressing room. Okay. So this powerful advice columnist You Go Girl Go Getter suddenly lost all volition, and was "steered" into a dressing room as a mere passenger in Trump's mancar. Of course, they couldn't claim she was dragged kicking and screaming into the dressing room, without witnesses, likely police intervention etc.

Not saying anyone deserves rape, or that rape happened. But if an adult woman not falling down drunk says she was "steered" into a dressing room to model lingerie for a complete stranger, and did not expect any form of sexual contact, then she must be full Rain Man autistic in her understanding of human communication.

More telling:

I've been to Bergdorf (under protest, but I've been there). You CANNOT go anywhere in that store without a salesperson shadowing you. If you go to a dressing room, you're escorted there, a salesperson is monitoring you, etc etc. They dress it up as pampering and catering to you, though in reality I think it's more to do with loss prevention than anything else.

Regardless, the idea that Carroll could be attacked in a Bergdorf dressing room is hilarious fantasy - clearly hinging on the knowledge that there are a lot of people who've never been in that store and are more than willing to believe what she says since they hate Donald Trump.

Her printed story was edited and presented nicely, but when she was talking about it on a talking heads show it's clear that she made up the entire thing. And her excuse for not pressing charges is very stupid....again, clearly she doesn't care to get jail time for perjury, but making up some stupid excuse just made it clear to everyone that she's lying.

She covered herself from people who have been to Bergdorf's by saying something like, "There were no salespeople around...which I found odd." I'm paraphrasing but it was much like that.

I've read Twitter comments by people who work/worked @ Bergdorf's saying there is NO WAY that happened at Bergdorf's.

Good for you for fighting!

I had not heard of the site, but have enjoyed a church quilting group for years. It is a wonderful way to enjoy a craft and spend time with others who like it, too. Most conversations are not political, though it was funny when some of the older women showed pictures of their daughters and granddaughters sent from the first pussy hat march and expressed dismay at what exactly they were trying to accomplish. Had more fun quilting at church on the day of the Women's march.

As enjoyable as online communities can be (AoSHQ!!), meeting up with people IRL is a great antidote to the Ravelry style toxicity.

211 all the evidence is in plain sight ... on the coup, the commies, the protection of even MS-13 types ... yet it all continues.


We can only hope that Barr is up for the fight, and can bring in hardened patriots that have no reservations about massive criminal indictments ... against the ongoing coup, a real coup soft pedaled as "resistance and investigation".

229 Part of teh reason Asian voting pattens changed is because "Asian" mixes in Chinese, Koreans, Pakistanis, Indians, etc into one group. I think Chinese/Koreans are still Republican-ish. But Indians/Pakistanis are basically at black level Democrat voting patterns. And as immigration from India/Pakistan accelerated in the 90s and 2000s, the overall "Asian" vote shifted Democrat.

230 As the March 4, 1877 inauguration day neared, Republican and Democratic Congressional leaders met at Wormley's Hotel in Washington to negotiate a compromise. Republicans promised concessions in exchange for Democratic acquiescence in the Committee's decision. The primary concession Hayes promised would be the withdrawal of federal troops from the South and an acceptance of the election of Democratic governments in the remaining "unredeemed" states of the South. The Democrats agreed, and on March 2, the filibuster was ended. Hayes was elected, but Reconstruction was finished, and freedmen were left at the mercy of white Democrats who did not intend to preserve their rights.

250 good article on the delusion of cheap goods. The comparative advantage argument had caveats recognized by Ricardo even in the beginning, yet he was ignored by the globalists in their "free trade" propaganda.


Ricardo said "most men of property [will be] satisfied with a low rate of profits in
their own country, rather than seek[ing] a more advantageous employment
for their wealth in foreign nations".


Instead, in the 80s, CEOs met and stated that only the profit matters, and they enriched themselves and sold US out to China (and others). We were promised that such free trade would turn China into capitalism nirvana ... but America is founded in liberty (which with proper oversight, can enable capital pursuits, as long as sovereign rights are the priority).


Beyond the sellout to China, the finance sector then took over, and produced nothing but secured paper wealth by incredible leverage ... 50:1 and much more, then getting bailed out if the Greenspan Put failed them. Now they own (almost) everything .... including DC, on paper at least.

That sounds like the kinda game these guys play. They always try to twist us up so that the only moves left under the rules and precedent put them in "heads I win, tails you lose!" territory.

That's why Trump was the essential candidate - he doesn't have any profound respect for precedent.

So how do we beat them here? We need the kind of solution that has the virtue of not having been tried.

But we have to stop the massive illegal invasion, and thwart the left's identity politics, which keeps Hispanics largely voting Democrat. With such welfare state dominance, and schools preaching hate for America ... that will be difficult, even in Texas. Chicago? even more difficult maybe. idk

326 As he soared from obscurity to top-tier presidential candidate this year, Mayor Pete Buttigieg rooted his unlikely campaign in an argument he hoped would fit both the moment and his relatively thin resume: that what a nation fed up with big government truly needs is to "get Washington to look more like our best-run cities and towns."

Now that South Bend is in the throes of a crisis over race, policing and city leadership, that rationale is running headlong into the inconvenient reality that when things go sour, mayors can be held immediately and directly responsible in a way that senators and congressman are not.

Hey if this skank is ducking into dressing rooms to try on lingerie for men she's just met for the first time minutes earlier, it's surprising she wasn't sexually assaulted more than 6 times.

Not that I believe her ridiculous story, but that was pretty stupid -- and slutty -- behavior she described. A man she's just met wants her to go into a dressing room and try on lingerie for him, and she's surprised that it's a sexual come-on? AYFKM? What did she think was going to happen in that room?

It is malicious and wilful DESECRATION of our national symbol, and by extension a denial of the country. I will listen to no rebuttal, it is undeniably desecration and a display of hatred toward America.
There is no expression of speech here, simply a physical act of sheer hate.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Our 2019 focus is on operational execution in our restaurants and optimizing the experience for our customers,” McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook


Quote II

Who wants a U.S. war with Iran?

Primarily the same people who goaded us into wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen, and who oppose every effort of Trump’s to extricate us from those wars.

Should they succeed in Iran, it is hard to see how we will ever be able to extricate our country from this blood-soaked region that holds no vital strategic interest save oil, and America, thanks to fracking, has become independent of that.Patrick J. Buchanan


Quote III

"I've got the [SNAP] form in my hand and I'm thinking of my financial situation, and I said ‘you know, I just can't believe this. So I went down to the second floor of the Sterns County Courthouse, stood in line a little bit, handed in the application and three weeks later I'm getting food stamps, a balance on my EBT card." Rob Undersander


Quote IV

“I’d like to express my deep and heartfelt gratitude to David Gilmour for this utterly remarkable gift. David has a long history of supporting charities and I am honored that he has chosen ClientEarth to benefit from this landmark auction.” James thornton

Did any of you vote for Kevin McAleenan to set immigration policy? I didn't think so.

The chronic problem of sabotage by bureaucrats hostile to the outsider president shaking up the Deep State will never be solved until unmasking and punishment become the order of the day. That’s why it is so heartening that with unusual swiftness, accusations are pointing to the alleged identity of a leaker who successfully delayed implementation of a key Trump policy initiative, the planned ICE raids on illegal alien scofflaws who have defied court orders for theior deportation.

This exercise will – if the allegations are sustained by evidence – help establish a norm of exposing the rat finks that could discourage future saboteurs.

Leaks to multiple media outlets, first reported by the Washington Post, exposed plans for ICE raids on illegal aliens who have gone through the appeals process and ignored court orders for their deportation. As a result, following strong Democrat protests, implementation of the plan has been delayed by two weeks.


In my misanthropic world Mr. McAleenan, would be facing harsh consequences if the accusations are true.

It really is a small world after all.H/T Hank Curmudgeon

On a Sunday morning last summer, Pat Reidy, who lives near Wrigley Field in Chicago, received an email from a stranger in France.

“I allow me to contact you,” it began. “I am Anthony Paysant a 22-year-old French citizen and I live in the town of Mortain near Barenton, Normandy.”

The stranger went on to say that he and his family were very interested in the Second World War and always participated in local memorial celebrations to show their gratitude to the soldiers who had helped liberate France from the German Nazis.

Great Britain metropolitan cities continue to be a warm and inviting cities. Nah, just kidding.

Children attacked two gay men with a knife after making homophobic insults towards them. One of the men was left with serious injuries to the head and neck, while the other man escaped with a minor hand injury in the ‘appalling and unprovoked attack’. Both men, in their thirties, were walking home in Liverpool around 9.20pm on Saturday when they were approached by three male youths, police said. The offenders are described as between 12 and 15, with one wearing a dark bubble coat and one riding a bike. They insulted the men, before one of the male youths pulled out a knife and assaulted them.

I bet next week's paycheck that the culprits are affiliated with the Religion of Pieces Peace.

If the byproduct of vaping was filthy litter, vaping would be legal in San Francisco.

San Francisco became the first city in the U.S. to ban the sale of e-cigarettes Tuesday despite opposition from corner store owners and local vaping manufacturer Juul.
The Board of Supervisors voted 11-0 to approve the legislation introduced by Supervisor Shamann Walton, which is intended to prevent youth from vaping.
“We spent the ’90s battling Big Tobacco. And now we see its new form through e-cigarettes,” Walton said.
This is a good idea. A youth walking down a San Francisco street for a vape refill might slip on some human feces and fall into a pile of dirty needles. We have to think about the children.

Maybe vapers should self-identify as heroin users.

Violating a Minneapolis cop's privacy was an expensive misdeed.

When Krekelberg asked for an audit of accesses to her DMV records, as allowed by Minnesota state law, she learned that her information—which would include things like her address, weight, height, and driver’s license pictures—had been viewed nearly 1,000 times since 2003, even though she was never under investigation by law enforcement. In fact, Krekelberg was law enforcement: She joined the Minneapolis Police Department in 2012, after spending eight years working elsewhere for the city, mostly as an officer for the Park & Recreation Board. She later learned that over 500 of those lookups were conducted by dozens of other cops. Even more eerie, many officers had searched for her in the middle of the night.

Krekelberg eventually sued the city of Minneapolis, as well as two individual officers, for violating the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act, which governs the disclosure of personal information collected by state motor-vehicle departments. Earlier this week, her case prevailed. On Wednesday, a jury awarded Krekelberg $585,000, including $300,000 in punitive damages from the two defendants, who looked up Krekelberg’s information after she allegedly rejected their romantic advances, according to court documents.

On May 13, I was returning to the U.S. from Mexico City when, passing through immigration at the Austin airport, I was pulled out of line for “secondary screening,” a quasi-custodial law enforcement process that takes place in the Homeland Security zone of the airport.

That's one way to attract talent. The NSA dares students to break a cyber code challenge.

The National Security Agency’s best and brightest cybersecurity experts are putting their skills to the test.

No, it’s not by stopping the Chinese or Russians from hacking government systems—though they are doing that too, we think.

Rather, it’s by developing a cyber challenge and daring more than 330 schools and 2,600 students to solve it.

Kathy Hutson, the senior strategist for industry and academic engagement at the NSA, said the Codebreaker Challenge has become one of the best ways to attract the next generation of talent to the federal government.


Kathy Hutson is NSA’s Senior Strategist for Academic Engagement.
“We are doing the high touch and personal approach to educate and attract students. Through the Codebreaker Challenges, we are using a non-traditional approach, which also teaches good fundamental skills for NSA as well as the nation,” Hutson said on Ask the CIO. “In our new employee orientation class, we started to poll all of our new employees as far as how they became interested in NSA. Among the new employees at a recent orientation class, one woman identified that she came to NSA through the GenCyber camps, which NSA hosts, and what sealed the deal for her was participating in the Codebreaker Challenge.”

Hey, how do I submit tips? This post will be in the mid-500's so most likely, no one will see it. But I just read a post on an Australian blog (I'm Aussie) that I thought had merit and may be of interest to all morons.

The ONT Musical Interlude



On this day: June 23, 2003 - Diana Ross
Diana Ross appeared in court and testified that she was coerced and felt intimidated into taking a breath test that showed her blood alcohol level was 0.2 (well over the 0.08 limit). The singer said, "If I didn’t take the breath tests, I was either going to go to the hospital or to jail". After the hearing, Ross asked the judge if it would be possible to have court paperwork processed using her married name of Diana Naess. The City Magistrate said he thought it was "a little late" for that now. via thisdayinmusic.com

She self-identified as a winner. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A teenage tennis star hopes to go all the way to the top after earning the Wimbledon wildcard - despite having only eight fingers and seven toes.

Fran Jones, 18, was born with rare genetic disorder ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia cleft lip/palate - commonly known as EED or EEC.

It means that she was born with webbed fingers and, after countless operations, today has three fingers and a thumb on each hand, four toes on her left foot, and just three toes on her right foot.

11 Air show recap.

Did the air show at Fairchild, yesterday. It was much smaller than JBLM, fewer static displays, etc. But let me tell you, the F22 demos stole the show and made the trouble worthwhile.

First demo was solo. Mixture of slow and high speed. Incredible capabilities. Second demo was flown with a P51 Mustang flying in formations, making passes. Whoever thought this up was a genius. Air superiority from wild separated eras. Air superiority is timeless. Absolutely incredible.

Also, F5, F15, F16, C5, C17, C130, Wildcats, Avengers, oh my. Good times.

They also had a few Ospreys, static, and a UH1, static and demo, and B51, static and demo, and F35, static. Missed from the JBLM show were the A10, Chinook, Cobra, Apache, B1, and many more. Still worth it at Fairchild, however.

60 AT&T is the absolute worst.

My problem is e-mail; I can send but not receive (opposite of Hotel California). When I first got my e-mail address, my landline was served by a subsidiary of AT&T. Then AT&T dumped everyone in my state onto Frontier without so much as a by-your-leave. Result is that when I try to get my e-mail up and running again, I have to tell the robot that answers the phone at least six times that I don't have an AT&T account any longer. I've talked to three people at Yahoo since Friday, who (to be fair to them) have tried their best to fix the e-mail issue, but it always comes down to them saying that AT&T has a service outage at the moment and they can't do anything more.

I'm starting to think AT&T is run by AOC and her minions.

68 re : intentionally defrauded the federal government," McGovern shot back. "That is, in my opinion, breaking the law

A legislator's opinion has no bearing on the law; a legislature writes new laws and does not interpret old ones. [That's something you learn when you, you know, run for a legislature]

As for "defrauded", the actual word you're looking for is "abuse". Fraud is another of those pesky legal terms which have a real meaning: that's when you misrepresent your position to get a government advantage. Undersander abused the system but did it legal.

Undersander's real crime is that he made the legislators look bad.

69 Not to step on any toes, but I need to make a short rant here about Vox Day.

I think the guy is very sharp, does a lot of good coverage on events in Europe you certainly won't get from their legacy media, and in general has done a great job of shifting the Overton window to the right. However, he has no talent at all when it comes to working with people who agree with him on 90% of things but differ over the other 10%.

Just today he made a post about a guy from the MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way, basically seeking alternatives to marriage and kids for fulfillment) who had emailed him, explaining why feminism had made so many young men afraid to wade into the dating pool, and what helpful advice VD might have for such men, since he had declared his opposition to the MGTOW movement.

This was VD's response: "You quit. You're out. You're done. You ran from the battle. So be it. You don't count anymore. Now go off and die alone, as you've chosen."

How is this helpful in any way? I don't know a whole lot about the MGTOW, so maybe I'm off base, but there is no way the hard Right, or whatever you want to call it, is going to build a viable counter-movement to what passes for modern society if people like VD are telling anyone who doesn't subscribe to every point of their platform to piss off. I don't get it.

Tonight's story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a map of the Internet, and there's a little website there called Ace of Spades HQ. On a given evening not too long ago, the rest of the internet disappeared and Ace of Spades HQ was left all alone. Its inhabitants were never sure whether the internet was destroyed and only Ace of Spades HQ left untouched or whether the website had somehow been taken away...

99 "Our 2019 focus is on operational execution in our restaurants and optimizing the experience for our customers," McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook

LOL. Your restaurants suck shit, these days. It takes forever to get the food, the food blows and it's expensive, to boot.

Bring back Ronald McDonald. He was the only good CEO McDonald's ever had. Only a real clown can run that place.

P.S. I used to love McDonald's and eat there more than a few times a week. It all started going downhill years ago when they started that crap with taking your order, taking your money, and making you wait in line with the other losers for them to decide to give you your food. You knew that was a bad omen.

Ah, I remember going to air shows at Moffett Field NAS as a kid. We actually lived close enough that the Blue Angels would fly low over our house during their shows (and practices). We'd always try to go on the last day, so we could hang out and watch the visiting aircraft leave. One year the B-52 did four fly-bys before bugging out, one pass with the bomb bay doors open. Pretty awesome. Alas, there hasn't been an air show at Moffett in at least 20 years.

121 and America, thanks to fracking, has become independent of that. Patrick J. Buchanan

It's not about whether America is independent of middle east oil, it's about the world and the money and political influence that the oil buys for its handlers. The arabs and persians have only ever used that money to do one thing - attack the world and try and spread islam everywhere. THey have done nothing but waste trillions in money they didn't deserve (since they only got the money because they stole the oil fields that others had found and built) and caused the world trillions more trying to stave off their threats and fix the shit they blew up so joyfully.

Sheesh. This ain't friggin rocket surgery. Anyone who knows even the tiniest bit of the history of the arabs would know that they couldn't be allowed much power or they would lay waste to everything they could - which is what they do. It's what they've always done.

130 As noted earlier, given the credibility/profile of the allegation, McAleenan will need a public refutation of the leak charge, with presidential vote of confidence, or needs to go.


Either way, at this point, the whole deferral of the ICE op looks like a debacle. Making normal, long-overdue and long abandoned normal internal enforcement a bargaining chip - for rule changes that can be circumvented by other, existing authorities to boot - is hard to see as other than idiotic.


And as noted earlier also, ignoring that the GOP is an equal obstacle to the Dems in [thus far, effectively] gutting Trump's key migration/border agenda will keep producing results like this - and like the related border $ supplemental that is likely to be CR, Take 3 - yet another debacle that continues the *worsening* of the situation.

169 bth, well stated. The Buchanan quote and things like it are really distortion plutonium - almost every premise is distorted, or outlandishly false and out of context.


No plausible scenario has ever involved prolonged American involvement, or any ground involvement. That's kind of the point: "containment" with a wink-wink because regime change in Tehran is obviously the only solution-like outcome. But we won't be doing the internal heavy lifting on that.


Meanwhile, the current sanctions effort [which had its origins back in Bush days] is probably uniquely effective in the history of such things.

170 Hey everybody.

Was listening to Boz Skaggs' Silk Degrees album earlier today. One of the songs on it is called "Georgia," in which (from jail) Boz pledges his undying love to his woman and begs for her to call him.

Little does Boz know, while he's stuck in the joint, Georgia's been humping Florida Man.

I remember reading a book at the library in 7th grade that mentioned the ordnance capacity of the F-4 at xyz (9 tons, but I had to look it up just now). Later that night, I happened to be reading another that listed the maximum bomb load of the B-24: 8,000 pounds. I was sure one or the other was in error. How does a heavy bomber, with four engines and a crew of ten or so, carry less than half the bomb load of a fighter?

He should try that with Russian passport control, and see what happens. (Or Canadian passport control, for that matter.)

Seth Harp, the guy whining about this, has a JD from NYU, and a masters from the Columbia School of Journalism, so obviously these CBP peasants had no business questioning him.

I recall a few years ago, a guy published a screed denouncing CBP for questioning him when coming back from Turkey. After all, He Had A Degree From Harvard, so obviously he had a right to enter the United States without questioning.

I get it. You wanted to ask her out on a date, but there's a rule about cops fraternizing with convicted felons, so you have to check. And the dozens of other cops had to check, too. I get what cops put up with, go through and deal with. They're just trying to keep society safe. That's why when a cop pulls someone over for a burned out license plate light bulb they keep one hand on their hip, which is not on their gun but close enough, just in case, because you never know. I mean, there's a reason a driver doesn't want his license plate illuminated. Connect the dots. You never abuse your authority. But always be vigilant, because license-plate-light-bulb guy might be trying to take the whole of civilization down, and you're the guy to stop that from happening. Life and death!

The Star Tribune has sought to authenticate some of the most egregious allegations, using public records and available social media posts, which make up the bulk of the case against her.

Some of the original social media accounts linking Elmi to Omar after their split in 2011 appear to have been removed, and documents verifying the family relationships of refugees from war-torn countries with limited government record-keeping are notoriously hard to obtain, even by U.S. immigration authorities.

You know, it's pretty easy to just have a "No Politics" rule.
A RPG board I have been on has had one for ~2 decades. They have a single forum where you can talk politics, and everywhere else it's disallowed. (Posts/threads deleted, account put in timeout, sort of disallowed.) I put in my profile that I would never enter the PIT (that was its name) because I liked too many people on the board and didn't want to find out that some of them were flaming idiots and abject morons. And, since my politics never came out on the board, *everyone* laughed at it.

Buchanan's view was set long before neo-cons even really existed (at least, in force). He was against the free trade stuff back in the late 80s and 90s and I agreed with him on that. He's been against Israel - against us allying with Israel, mostly - since I have known of him.

You know what I like about Pride Month? The ubiquity of those six-color rainbow flags. Fine, they get red and orange and yellow and green and blue and purple, but I get pink back. I like pink. It's not good terms, but I'll take it.

Then I found out today that the LQTGB community still claims pink and their color. It's funny where some people's limits are and what pushes them past the line. With me, it turned out to be a seventh color, a tertiary tint that seemingly nobody likes.

That's the part of the Catholic community that bugs me most, the occasional proIRA sentiment I still sometimes hear in the American Irish subset.

I'm part Irish too, I'm fine with Ulster rejoining the rest of the island (on its own time), and I get that it's going to take a while for the Irish to forgive the English aristocracy for what they/we did. But the IRA just like to murder people.

Say what you will about Bono's big ego, but he gets it about the IRA.

Why would Trump invite a Canadian team, the Raptors, to the White House? Granted, most of the players are Americans, I expect, just as many of the player on the St. Louis Blues squad are Canucks. But I thought the "tradition" of a WH invite for a winning team was confined to a U.S.-based team.

Utah or Texas is looking mighty good to me at the moment. However, on a positive side this for me personally, could be a good thing a la your 1934 National Firearms Act. If I have this correct, intelligent forward thinking people who had as many lots of $200 as they could muster were serializing bits of pipe and paying the $200 to register a "machine gun". Then they would buy enough parts and manufacture some receiver parts to make the machine gun. Once the market supply was fixed the prices could only rise to where you know have to pay silly money to buy a transferable gun. Also a M16 with a giggle switch is NOT a machine gun. FFS

361 So, I am out in the yard this afternoon, in the midst of prepping to remove the flatdeck from a 1.5 ton truck I have had here for years.

Pogo, my dog came trotting up, and she was whining in the strangest way, seemed very distressed about something, and wanted me to know it. I got up off the ground from under the truck deck, and there was a pair of young Malemute dogs approaching Pogo and me. They weren't being hostile, just curious, but Pogo was alarmed, so I put here in the house.

Going back outside, the Malemutes had disappeared, but I whistled, and they came running. They wore collars and tags, but neither would let me approach close enough to read the tags.

I fished out my cell, and called the neighbors, and the eldest son and daughter came down. She took pictures of the dogs with her cellphone, and then got hold of one dog, and read a phone number off the tag, and dialed it. Turned out to be a relative of the folks that live a mile north. He came by in about five minutes, driving a big Dodge pickup I'd seen go by a half hour earlier. Dogs had been missing since last evening. He was real pleased to have them back.

And the doggos were happy, too, since I gave each one a dog biscuit.

No, Powerline and Instapundit are basically the soul of skeptical sanity. No one should have expected Trump to be the second incarnation of St Ronald (and he isn't quite, and St Ronald had his share of weaknesses, one of which wasn't Twitter) and they didn't.

Place not your faith in princes. But as Presidents go, in my lifetime. if you divide them into thirds (15/15/15) and then top-five and bottom-five, you get IMHO:

JFK: maybe lower end of upper-third. Didn't do anything severely wrong, got a few things right. We got to the moon, and we didn't have to sink any Russian ships around Cuba.

LBJ: bottom-third, maybe bottom five. The economy did fine through his term, but he flip-flopped on civil rights for purely political benefit (and left black America in shit for decades), he kept but couldn't control JFK's Harvards on a variety of issues but notoriously Vietnam.

Nixon: could have been somewhere in the top third, though big-government GOP and gave us EPA but...so bottom end of middle-third because you-know-what, the biggest unforced error in American politics.

Ford: who? oh yeah, he was President when I registered for the draft and decided ROTC was not in my future. Mayaguez and all that. Top end of lower third. WIN.

Carter: bottom third, I'd rate him bottom five but there's so much competition.

Reagan: not perfect, but he knew One Big Thing and he killed on it. Mideast policy mostly a disaster and domestic policy a very mixed bag but history rates him on the USSR. Top-five.

Bush 41: he could have done better, bent the DoD to his will on Kuwait but...could have done better. Hard to push him out of the top third despite one-term and the private-right-of-action ADA.

Clinton: will go down in history highly despite a lot of crap, because economy, because the Balkan war worked, because letting the Chinese in didn't screw us until later. Above or below Bush 41? I'll put him a notch above just 'cause I made a lot more money under Clinton.

Bush 43: don't even. His response to 9/11 was weak, and then there was Iraq, wherein he sold his administration's soul to the Democrats to fund his war. And he gave us Obama. Bottom third.

Obama: Race-baiter, maybe agent of the mad mullahs, protected with sixteen inches of face-hardened blackdemocratium by the press but he's still probably in the bottom five. History may soften that but...not now. He's bottom five.

It makes sense, as long as the rotating tube has some method for pushing/pumping the stuff it's sitting in into the tube.

Bottom five, nothing. Barky is the worst, by orders of magnitude. It's not even a contest. Barky doesn't even have a shred of American sensibilities about him. Not a shred. He is the only actual America-hater who ever occupied the White House - and the people who voted for him did so specifically because he hated America so much.

On top of that, Barky was the dumbest by a long shot. It was almost laughable how stupid he was/is. But he almost took this nation down and we still don't know that we are going to make it through the shit he did. We have yet to pay the piper - and that debt will have to be paid at some point. That will probably be the point at which the whole American experiment ends.

I disagree. I think James Buchanan is probably worst, and James Madison probably second.

Buchanan could have prevented the Civil War, but didn't; Madison pushed the country into an existential conflict with the Brits over an issue that could readily have been negotiated away and we were saved by Bonaparte.

There's a lot of others down in the toilet, Carter, Wilson, and LBJ belong way down there, but you've got to make room for some of the early 19th century nullities.

And of course FDR was the best and the worst, a man who might go down in history as among the worst of our Presidents except for Hitler and Tojo, so as a war President well...unlike Bush 43 he didn't let failed generals have field commands for three years...

None of them set about to destroy America just because they hated this country and they hated Americans. Not even Carter. No other President even thought, while he was in office, of touring the world trying to blame America for every made up sin he could conjure in his fevered pea-brain. Only Barky. Barky was distinctly non-American and he was exactly the sort of influence and perversion of our system that the Founders tried to stop with the "natural born citizen" requirement.

Barky did as much destruction as he was able - and the big difference is that Barky did it intentionally. He set out to destroy us. He hated us and our country.

There is no comparison with any President. None. It is in a totally different universe all on its own.

448 With the DB605 engine, the oil would froth. It was never really fixed. Daimler blamed Messerschmidt for shoddy design and vice versa.

A Bf 109G-4/R2/Trop in RLM parlance is a G model fitted with the DB605 engine and larger sized tires which gave rise to small triangular bumps on the upper wing surfaces to accommodate the new tires. Like all G series a more paddle shaped prop replaced the thinner VDM prop of the F model. The tail structure was reinforced so the four stiffener strips found on all F models to prevent the tail from falling off due to engine harmonics were done away with.

R2 indicates a factory installed kit. In this case a camera fitted to underside just aft of the wing.

Trop means the plane has been fitted with an elongated sand filter over the supercharger intake. Also two little clips were installed on the left side just under the windscreen to allow a sun umbrella to fitted over the open cockpit.

If it is the job of the government to take from those with material success and give to those without, isn't it the same for romantic/sexual success?

457 Vlad, wander into the Luftwaffe forums and it still gets dicey. For example was RLM DunkelBlau ever really used will set off people mostly because they don't read the whole post. The answer is, barring a cache of late war color photos surfacing, no one knows. And even that could start a fight.

Right now looking at one site showing a black and white photo of a Bf 109G as captured by the Tommies. Poster claims the side number is Red 14. Except that is wrong since there is at least one color photo of the same Gustav with US star and RAF fin-flash showing it to be Black 14. And most sources say the plane is a G-2 except this one black and white photo clearly shows the extended fuel line running next to the oblique photo installation along with sand filter, so the plane really appears to be a G-4/R-2/Trop.

And then the fighting started.

476 I have always wondered about the " inverted V" engines like the DBs. They used a dry sump engine like most ( all?) aircraft engines of the era, but the natural tendency is for gravity to carry the oil to the "sump" and mostly away from the working bits.
In the inverted Vs, gravity works the same way, but the oil would try to fill the pistons, although at 3000 RPM the filling is probably largely theoretical. As a very long term mechanic, I can imagine the oil always being airated, and needing extra time in the oil tank for the air to separate out.
I know the DB engines worked, but could/would they have been better under extreme conditions?

2. He ain't very bright. Throughout history, it's a cardinal rule that you don't try to get under the skin of a gubmint bureaucrat with power over you...

If you beard the bear, you get clawed.

3. He's a racist. Throughout the article, he claimed that his White Privilege protected him, and that a person of color would have fared far worse. He presented no evidence of that, just his opinion and a couple of anecdotes.

Which are like, evidence, dude.

4. More dumbness, or at least proof that he isn't very well read -- I've known about these warrantless Border Patrol device searches for ages. If you have sensitive info on your equipment, leave it at home.

Now he does.

All that said, of course I am disturbed about these crystal clear violations of the 4th Amendment, especially of a US citizen on US soil.

Thanks a lot, SUPREME COURT, for failing fuckingly miserably at YOUR ONE FUCKING JOB. Here, let me quote it to y'all since RBG seems to lose her copy of the Constitution on a regular basis:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

You're welcome, dummies.

Only 60% of people who start a 4 year program graduate from College with some sort of Bachelors degree. And the Government even pads that data because their stats look at the graduation-rate for 6 years of College.

Gun Thread: Mail Call! [Weasel]

lonelymailbox scaled.jpg

We recently had a couple of good questions in the comments regarding barrels, and I thought I'd save them as Gun Thread topics. Pretty smart of me, huh? So without further a-doo-doo, let's take a look shall we?

The first question comes from our pal Gref who asks:

What's your barrel cleaning process and materials?
And how clean is clean enough, when it comes to copper deposits?
(I've only found about 3.6 million different opinions on those topics on the InterWebs!)

Well there are two answers which depend on which gun I'm cleaning. Let's start with the easy one first, which is for the guns I use for recreational shooting. These are the handguns and rifles I take to the range just for the joy of shooting itself, where a score is not being recorded and it's all just for funsies. The answer, honestly, is I do not do much at all. Digging waaaay back in the archives. we find this topic sort of addressed in the September 23, 2018 Gun Thread. Warning: Don't comment in old threads! Anyhoo, to understand my answer, one first has to appreciate that I'm pretty lazy, and all I'm trying to do is keep them properly lubricated and functioning while prohibiting any sort of rust. Rust isn't a big problem for me because I control humidity in my gun safes and keep a light coating of oil on everything. I go hundreds and hundreds of rounds without really "cleaning" anything. Having said that, I have never had any type of malfunction with any of my firearms due to what some of you will no doubt consider a neglectful cleaning and maintenance protocol.

When I do clean these guns, I keep the process pretty simple, and let's call this the:

Basic Cleaning
I like Hoppe's 9 and I use a lot of it with WeaselWoman's toothbrush to get the visible crud out of the nooks and crannies. For stainless steel revolvers, I use a tack cloth with polishing compound on the cylinder face to keep them from looking like crap. If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times, range babes are not attracted to a crappy looking cylinder face. For barrels (both handguns and rifles) my process is to run H9 saturated patches through a couple times first, then either a bronze or nylon brush (with more H9) until it slides through without resistance. Then it's alternating wet/dry cotton patches until they come out clean. If that's taking too long, I may go back through a few more times with the brush to remove stubborn deposits, then repeat the wet/dry patch process. Finally, I wet a patch with oil and run it through the barrel, being careful to keep the chamber dry All in all, I suspect it's about what everyone does, and I do not worry about copper fouling much, if at all. If I'm not in a hurry and want to remove copper fouling the easy way then I use a product called Wipe Out which does an excellent job. Spray the foamy solution into the barrel, leave it overnight, and patch it out the next morning. I will say I also pay a little more attention to my carry pistol, cleaning and maintaining it on a slightly more frequent basis.

And then we have:

More Better Cleaning
This is typically reserved for my match rifles. I'm still lazy as shit, but accuracy degrades significantly unless these barrels are kept pristine, and I clean them meticulously at the end of every day. I never let these barrels go more than 100 rounds without being cleaned, ever. My daily match gun cleaning process is exactly as described above, except I use a Gradient Lens Borescope to inspect the chamber and rifling each day.

borescope scaled.jpg
Gradient Lens Borescope

angled eyepiece scaled.jpg
optional angled eyepiece

The borescope is a precision optical instrument and represents something of an investment at around $2,000 with the optional angled eyepiece. If you're really serious about seeing inside your barrel, this is the way to go. Again, I use the basic method daily and rather than Wipe-Out I use J-B Bore Compound to remove any remaining copper fouling. A few passes with a small amount of the bore paste on a cotton patch is usually sufficient, but in cases where deposits are stubborn, I may go back with a bronze brush and repeat the entire process until the rifling is clean. For competition, I shoot the overbore caliber 6.5-284 and my barrels only last about 800 rounds due to chamber erosion, so I'm not worried about wearing out the rifling with a little bore paste.

Thanks and I hope this answers your question, Gref!

I know we have a lot of people who are very conscientious cleaners, but how many lazy people like me do we have? Has your sloth in cleaning and maintenance ever caused a problem?

*****

Our next question comes from Gun Thread regular Semi-Literate Thug who asked something I've wondered about from time-to-time myself:

Parkerizing and similar treatments are done in a hot liquid bath. Is the barrel normally plugged to prevent the surface treatment from reaching the bore?

Parkerizing (or phosphating) is a chemical process of adding a protective coating to steel which gained popularity in WWII. What is this coating, you ask? Well, it's the end result of a process in which a dilute solution of acid and manganese, zinc or iron salts are used to form a crystalline layer on steel which protects the surface from wear and corrosion. It can be done at home, and DIY kits are available, including bore plugs, although I'm not sure I'd try it myself. Anyway, the process requires the surface of the part to be prepared by sanding or bead blasting and then submerged in a heated solution, but how do you keep from parkerizing the inside of the barrel and messing up the rifling or bore diameter? As usual, the answer depends on who you ask, and naturally the internet is full of experts arguing both ways. Apparently the phosphating doesn't "stick" very well to a surface that hasn't been prepared before immersion in the solution, which would support the "don't need to plug" camp, however, Step 1 in the Brownell's Parkerizing Instructions recommends plugging the bore. (Note to the chemists out there: the above few sentences are intended as a quick summary and not intended to represent an exhaustive or particularly technically correct discription of the process - Weasel)

A helpful video of the process is linked HERE.

From Brownell's detailed parkerizing instructions:

TO PLUG OR NOT TO PLUG THE BORE:
It is Brownells recommendation that if the firearm is intended to be fired, the bore should not be Parkerized. The smooth surface of the bore will only take a thin Parkerized coating and part of the coating can be removed with a stiff bore brush and by shooting. The problem lies with the fact that the Parkerizing action will etch the bore to some degree. This etching will cause an increased tendency to foul and in all likelihood, degrade accuracy. In addition, all other things being equal, an etched bore will result in higher pressures than a smooth bore. So, Brownells recommends that all bores should be protected from the Parkerizing process. (A possible exception would be chrome lined bores, which, if in good tight condition, are unaffected by the process.) Recommended plug materials are soft wood, neoprene, or other synthetic materials. Gas ports in autoloading firearms must also be plugged. The easiest way to plug these port holes is to use round toothpicks, driven solidly in place.

The Brownell's answer and explanation makes a lot more sense to me than something opined on the Super Badass Gun Genius Forum by a commenter calling himself BubbaX. Plugging the bore doesn't seem complicated, so why not do it? Don't etch your bore, bro!

Has anyone tried parkerizing at home, and if so, what was your experience with the process? For those who haven't, does it look like something you would attempt?

That pic reminds me of ebay listings from about 15 years ago.

Lots of land for sale on ebay in Arizona and Texas, literally in the middle of the nowhere. These Land-locked lots, about a few acres or so, would be selling for, like, $700. No shit.

I toyed with buying a lot....on a lark, as Dad would say.

33 I'm thinking about purchasing the first firearm I've purchased in about 2 years:

Sig Sauer P365, now available with an external manual safety.

I've been waiting for them to come out with this "Massachusetts compliant" model not because I'm from there (gross), but because I just don't like the idea of the double-action-only long trigger pull with no safety at all. I'd probably shoot my dick off. Probably I"d stuff it into my pocket, and there would be a crayon or tootsie roll in the pocket holster, and boom, no more dick.

Anybody have any experience with the P365? I'm thinking I can replace the S&W J-frame in my front pocket with something with a 1.6 times-longer barrel and sight radius, and twice as many rounds.

And yeah, I know, the S&W doesn't have a safety either. I'm used to revolvers, I'm just not used to a semi-auto with no safety. 90% of the pistol rounds I've fired have been from single-action revolvers, in my youth; most semi-auto shooting, I've done with pistols with manual safeties.

36 I did get to the range yesterday and discovered a thing or two.

First, I bought some 124 gr Fiocci 9mm. The 115 gr loads were shooting low in my XD9. I wondered if the 125gr would change the point of impact.

Sure enough! It was bang on dead center with 124 gr loads. So that's good to know. I'll save the 115 gr for testing other pistols. It sure seems to shoot low in the XD9.

Also did some side by side testing for accuracy and ease of shooting with my Ruger SR1911 and the Rock Island Tac 2 the Nurse has.

The sights on the Ruger gave it the edge. But getting new sights on the Rock Island should be easy and not too expensive. The Rock Island had a better trigger reset, IMO.

Also did some shooting with the Glock 42. I'm 'sufficiently' accurate with it but it's not perfect. It is easy to shoot but it obviously is very tiny and makes gripping it and working the trigger a little tricky. Still, it's a great shooting pistol.

And it was a very good day at the range.

Next week will be all about the CZ P07 and the Kadet adapter.

40 Good evening, everyone.

When I started shooting as a young fellow I just assumed a gun needed cleaning after every session. (It didn't hurt that I loved the smell of Hoppe's 9.) Nobody told me different. Since I began shooting muzzleloaders shortly after, and they HAD to be cleaned after each use, the cleaning bug was reinforced.

I basically follow Weasel's first cleaning procedure. Most of my shooting is with cast bullets at moderate velocities so leading and copper fouling is minimal at best. It works. My guns may show wear from use but there isn't a speck of rust on them after over 30 years and the bores are bright.

I'm lucky. Mrs. JTB likes the scent of Hoppe's. I always knew she was special.

42 Ref cleaning.
Not a big deal for pistol barrels but a bore snake does a MAGNIFICENT job cleaning and lubing rifle barrels.

What I find to be the big deal with the snake is that it takes so much less time to clean the solvent out of the barrel. Instead of running one patch after another for that long long barrel, I can get it very clean with 2 passes of the the snake.

A pass down a rifle barrel is a lot longer than a pistol barrel so it takes more patches to do a rifle barrel.


Posted by: ArthurK at June 23, 2019 07:25 PM (Aqi5D)

43 Cleaning: black powder every time, but just hot soapy and then hot clean water and a patch. Rifles and handguns (non-corrosive) get a patch, then a brass brush, then patches until they look clean. All the field-stripped guts are toothbrushed and Q-tipped. First with a tiny bit of CLP (which is the only solvent used), then dry patches and rags. Then reassembled, function-checked, and handed over to QA to make sure the slide rails and mag wells get the proper amount of cat hair.

When I was little I loved cleaning guns because it meant I got to play with all the guns and detail strip them. I did a full detail-strip, clean, and reassembly of every one of dad's guns several times. Voluntarily. For fun. I'm a lot lazier now, but I still clean mine after every trip.

I have one and I love it. Mine does not have a safety and I am fine with that. My holster covers the trigger and I am OK with that set up.


They have worked out all of the issues they had when they first came on the market and my gun shoots great and I have never had an issue with it.


Plus it fits in every leather holster that I have for my Glock 42, it's that small. And 10 rounds of 9mm in that small of a package is great.


One downside is that you will not be able to do the 10+1 thing. You can't seat a fully loaded 10 round magazine in the pistol without the slide being back and locked. But 10 rounds of 9mm in that small of a gun is a blessing.

57 Scotsman, that's great information. Particularly regarding the holster.

I suspect that the long double-action trigger with no safety will work for most people with no hitch, I just don't have that confidence in my own trigger finger discipline. I rarely get to the range.

Re. the 10+1 -- they have a 12 round extended mag, I'm hoping it fits in my pocket with that, and that I can then fit my pinky onto the grip. And if I can, maybe I'll be able to hit a pie plate from 10 feet, because I really struggle with accuracy with little pistols in my big hand. They're very unforgiving of bad form and lack of practice.

And they have a 15 round mag (!!!) -- I'm hoping to carry one of those as a spare on my non-shooting side. 27 rounds of 9mm at the ready, instead of my current 5 rounds of 38+p.

Which is to say, since I know I'll be at it a week later, I don't try to get a given weapon up to same standard I would if I know it's going to sit idle for a while.

I gave up on Hoppe's a while ago. The problem was the smell, which Mrs. Lloyd cannot abide.
So now I use Break Free CLP, which seems to do the job, but doesn't smell nearly as bad.

64 Gun thread! Oh the joy!

Under normal circumstances, I'd be lurking during lunch break at the job. But very early in the morning the job tabled a motion of no confidence in me, and about 15 hours later, I gave them my own motion of no confidence. I no longer work there and life is in flux at the moment as I barrel towards what I hope will be a more lucrative, stable path.

Days before all that happened, I did hit a range down in Houston - the beloved Top Gun Range, where I fired 500 rounds through all three of my handguns - an M9, G26, and a Sig P226 TacOps (two of which were featured guests here some time ago). It just felt good to be back out there and my hope is that when things settle down, I can make more systematic visits to the range, as that closing question gazes at me with silent reproach, especially if I haven't been to the range in awhile.

I also tried out the Sig P365 - I see it as an even better EDC than my G26 (and I love the G26, especially now that I have mag extensions which lend me greater control - yes, getting the pinky around the handle is a must!), but I will definitely need a mag extension with it just as I have gotten mag extensions for the G26. The P365 has a lot of "pop" to it - there's just less gun to absorb the recoil. But that's nothing to worry about so long as I have a mag extension to better control the gun.

I clean from the breech whenever I can, not because I worry about pushing crud into the action, but because it helps prevent rod wear on the muzzle. They used to bore and rifle barrels from the breech, too, because any wear on the cutter resulting in bore changes would make for a choked barrel instead of a funneled one, and I tend to reflexively follow traditional practice....

Not so much to avoid pushing crap into the innards as to avoid damaging the muzzle by dragging the rod against it.

Nope. But when you have to clean from the muzzle, use some sort of guide to keep the rod off of the lands.

Re. the Dreyse M1907: A little new-fangledy for me. And 32ACP -- yikes. But that is pretty funny stuff. Love the almost 90 degree grip angle.

Mark Andrew Edwards -- I'm sure if I ever have to pull the pistol under duress, I'm going to fumble all sorts of stuff. I don't have the handgun combat training some people get; if I lived in a higher-crime area, I'd probably invest in that, instead of a new pistol.

79 It is difficult to get a uniform, good looking phosphate conversion coating on the smooth, low alloy steels typically used in firearms. Hot acid etching is the best surface preparation to avoid a splotchy phosphate coating, but is certainly not DIY friendly. Sand blasting sort of works, but the 'tooth' it creates is too coarse and results in a coarse phosphate finish. Activators, mostly fine dispersions of aluminum oxide particles, can be used to improve phosphate coating uniformity, but they require a lot of experimentation to produce good results.

83 Try Simple Green on black power clean-up

Posted by: Skip at June 23, 2019 07:46 PM (BbGew)

84 It is difficult to get a uniform, good looking phosphate conversion coating on the smooth, low alloy steels typically used in firearms. Hot acid etching is the best surface preparation to avoid a splotchy phosphate coating, but is certainly not DIY friendly. Sand blasting sort of works, but the 'tooth' it creates is too coarse and results in a coarse phosphate finish. Activators, mostly fine dispersions of aluminum oxide particles, can be used to improve phosphate coating uniformity, but they require a lot of experimentation to produce good results.

In any case, since the wife is out of town my progress on removing the planters she's decided she's not interested in any more is...rototill about a wheelbarrow's worth of dirt loose, shovel it into the wheelbarrow, move the wheelbarrow to the dirt pile out by the gate, return wheelbarrow to the planter area, come inside and sit down for a few minutes. Lather, rinse, repeat. At least one will be done today, the other big one tomorrow morning, the two small ones whenever. Loosen the dirt, dig a bunch more out, bring in some lava mulch, move the patio tables over there.

87 From Gref:

Weasel,
Thank you very much for the info this evening and the link to your earlier thread. All very helpful to me.

I only shoot for recreation. I believe I've been working too hard at getting practically no blue on a
patch with a copper solvent on it. Which means cleaning takes most of the recreation out of my shooting. I've re-started shooting after a very long period of an average of about one range trip every 5 years. I have all the chemicals you use. I'm going to try the Kroil then Kroil and JB Bore Compound method and see how it does.

And thanks for the tip about using polishing compound on a stainless revolver cylinder face. Do you use JB? I am thinking of trying Flitz and Iosso.

91 Re. the 10+1 -- they have a 12 round extended mag,
I'm hoping it fits in my pocket with that, and that I can then fit my
pinky onto the grip. And if I can, maybe I'll be able to hit a pie
plate from 10 feet, because I really struggle with accuracy with little
pistols in my big hand. They're very unforgiving of bad form and lack
of practice.



And they have a 15 round mag (!!!) -- I'm hoping to carry one of
those as a spare on my non-shooting side. 27 rounds of 9mm at the
ready, instead of my current 5 rounds of 38+p.


Posted by: Pastafarian at June 23, 2019 07:35 PM

I have two of the 12 round mags and they make the P365 into something other than a pocket pistol unless you have very big pockets. Mine prints big time with those magazines in my pocket wearing normal jeans. It is very obvious that I am carrying a pistol in my pocket with those magazines. The flush 10 round ones are about the limit of what I can carry comfortably in my pocket.


I just got two of the 15 round mags in the other day and there is no way you are going to ever carry the gun with one of them in a pocket. They are ginormous.

92 For cleaning, Weasel has it right. Once the patches run clean, your good to go.
Once a year or so, I take a particular rifle out of my collection to my gunsmith and let him do his thing so I get a different set of hands and eyes on a detailed cleaning.

Took the Cetme and the FR8 to distance this past week, the Cetme has a pawn shop scope of undetermined manufacture, a 3x9x40, and she slaps steel from 100 to 500 yards no problem. As it should.
The Spanish FR8 surprised me a bit. Iron sights only and she shoots high and right about 2 inches at 100 yards so I hold off depending on distance. She rocked the steel at 100/200 but nothing at 300/400 yards. At 500 yards I was able to hit 3 out of 10 on a man sized torso plate, even though her rear sight only goes to 400 meters.......loads of fun for such a small rifle.

The Cetme is heavy though, like the kettle ball of rifles. I wouldn't want to hump the thing all day but a great shooter.

95 I have a couple of Number 1 Mk3 Enfield rifles, one from 1916, and one from 1918. The bores on both of these are a wee bit frosted. I have scrubbed them to the best of my ability, but the patches will never be completely clean. I generally shoot commercial ammo in them but occasionally shoot surplus. I was recently given some Iraqi(!!) of indeterminent age... Click.. Bang kinda stuff. I keep the rest of the actions clean and lubed. I shoot them in regular rotation with the rest of the milsurp rifles. I inherited a Number 2A1, the Ishapur Arsenal version in 308 Nato, from 1966, but I have not shot that one yet. I lack a headspace gauge in 308, and I am not so sure about Indian Metallurgy.

Guys are shooting at steel 175 yards out, using a scoped rifle, and it's a huge target, probably at least 24 by 36 and I'm thumping it using iron sights on a Korean war vintage rifle.

There's also some large gongs at a little over 300 yards I can ring regularly with the Garand.

110 I didn't get to the range this week, but I did manage to use up a few hundred rounds Out In The Woods. I had some new things to try out, as I finished most of my shopping for rifles prior to the new stupid rules coming for WA state on July 1st.

Picked up a few AR lowers, not sure what I'll make them into yet. The store in question had a waist high stack of lowers behind the counter, reporting that people would come in and buy 5-10 at a time. I think I should go back and get some more.

Got a Kel Tec CMR-30, the carbine version of the PMR-30 22mag pistol. It's a featherweight and pretty accurate, lots of fun.

A pistol got on the list, due to the absence of any other CZs in my safe- a CZ 97B in 45ACP. Big and heavy, I want to take this one to an IDPA match at some point.

And while I was buying, I added a Hi-Point 4595 carbine because why not. It's actually a nice shooter. After putting a hundred rounds through it, I'm considering doubling the amount of money I spent on it by adding a red dot to it.

That reminds of a rather amusing near-event from a couple of weeks ago.

When I began building my Broomhandle from spare parts, the barrel and lower were packed with cosmoline. This was a problem I'd never run across before, and the internet told me to soak the pieces in mineral spirits to get the gunk out.

This I did using a disposable baking tray, which left me with a lot of otherwise usable mineral spirits. So I poured it into one of the cat litter jugs and set it aside for future use.

Flash forward to this spring. I'm burning some brush in the fire pit and wanting to have some water handy, so I see what I take to be an old jug of rain water from the previous summer and set it off to the side so it's within reach if things get out of hand.

The fire burns low and I'm ready to put water on the coals. My eyes fall on the jug, and I notice that the cap isn't perforated, which is what I normally do with rainwater jugs.

OH CRAP.

I hastily returned it to the garage and instead fill an empty jug with fresh water.

I'm sure that once I uncapped it, the smell would have clued me in, but it's a reminder to LABEL re-used jugs with clear fluids in them.

118 NZ is a good learning experience for some newbies to observe.

Note they are having trouble confiscating guns because they didn't have a registration scheme in operation.

DON'T LET THE GOV ENABLE A REGISTRATION SCHEME!
It's the first step to confiscation. This happened so quickly they acted too soon.
Don't think the liberals will miss the significance of this.
And be ready to fight any registration scheme no matter how reasonable it seems. Gov't can't be trusted.

Sure there are ways they could piece together a list but it won't be good enough to gather all the firearms.

Even with them there has to be a will on the part of Gov't and the knowledge that the people will back them before they try seizing guns.

Take a look at Vermont, New Jersey, New York, California, Connecticut.

They've all enacted some sort of registration/confiscation and haven't had the sign ups that they KNOW are there by the amount of guns sold.

People are already scoff laws as to registration or seizures.

Don't let them enact a National Registration (other wise known as Universal Background check which REQUIRES a registration scheme to be successful)

Also let's not allow a National RED FLAG Law (Lindsey Graham's pushing one) because they violate basic rules of law with no participation by the owner and the anonymity of the complainant.

And BTW while things are quiet, you can think of it as a hobby.

BUT IT'S NOT A HOBBY! It is a right that all men and women have. You have a right to defend yourself. That means you have a right to the MEANS to defend yourself and that means FIREARM.

Some years ago, my uncle scored a pristine, in the box, Mk I for basically pocket change. The hawk logo inset is red. I am told that it was changed to black after Alex Sturm's death which Wikipedia tells me was in 1951. I think they recently did a special collectors' run with the old, red, logo.

the price is right, and we're not sure if we have one of these already, so why not?

Yeah. If they yell loud enough, they'll get nothing because the government will argue that public safety is more important than their "greed."

The one positive aspect of registry/licensure is that if enough people get permits, it actually acts as a check on confiscation because the authorities realize just how many people they will be pissing off.

Something like 10 percent of Michigan's voting population has a carry permit. It's no coincidence that gun control is a non-issue in this state.

135 As much as I enjoy my old bolt action and single shot rifles, there is something very satisfying about shooting with a Garand. It's not just the accuracy, although that is a nice bonus. It just feels right for some reason.

Quick post-cleaning/post-handling tip: get a silicone-impregnated reel
cloth. Give the gun a wipe-down to remove your salty, oily fingerprints,
especially around the grip frame, before you store the gun.

I have one of these. Absolutely use for long-term storage, particularly on the 'satin' finish, which seems to give in to rust pretty easily.

~$100 for the COE, submitted on a Fryday, had it on Monday, then app to the ATF with a copy sent to the local LEO Chief (i spent the $ for Registered, so i had proof of delivery) and waited for the ATF.

hadn't heard anything after the ~60-90 days i was told to expect, only to find out it had taken, IIRC, ~30 days, but they had typoed in the wrong zip code, and sent it to a non-existent address up by Yosemite.

Fryday on a holiday weekend, but the section supervisor herself got it ungefked and the new one was on its way, to the right address, the next Tuesday, with her personal assurances that the old one had a note in the file that it had never reached the person named, due to the address, in case someone got their hands on it and tried to use it.

152 After a day at the range we would field strip our rifles, wrap the metal parts in a towel and douse them in a trash can filled with boiling water heated by an immersion heater. We would then further clean and oil before putting them back together. The armorer and assistant would inspect upon turning them in. This was stateside. Overseas we, I at least, were pretty particular in the care of our weapons.

167 I bought a Marlin 39A new when I was 14 in 1967. Now, I've run thousands or tens of thousands of round through that gun in the ensuing 52 years doing nothing but cleaning the barrel. Because of the Gun thread, I decided I needed to break it down and check the receiver. I mean, you can do it with a nickel, who knew? So I did, and it was so clean I could've eaten off of it. (Well, then I'd've had to clean it.) My question: after all I've heard here about .22 ammo being dirty, why wasn't the receiver?

I had a SA58 and loved it. Much lead downrange. It had a bit of a learning curve to it, at first. One was finding the best load for the rifle. The other was finding the "sweet spot" on the gas regulator for cycling a particular load. After that, a real treat to own and shoot.

195 Back to last week's intriguing thread for just a hair...

What's odd is that my father and I never hit the range together - and probably never will. It's just not his thing. Quite unusual, I think, given he was in the Army for 30 years. But his MOS was a medical one, and therefore I don't think he handled guns much beyond familiarity training.

I didn't handle guns of any sort until I shot BBs in a Cub Scout camp while living in Germany and there was where the safety rules were absolutely ingrained. Our instructor was a gruff sort in the Army who would read any of us the Riot Act for the slightest infraction. But this was good in retrospect as it taught us respect for the rules.

From there, shooting was a rare thing. I shot air rifles in JROTC. Into adulthood, one of my good buddies from HS set up a range at his parents' home out in the countryside east of San Antonio. His father was a cop, and had a veritable arsenal. He'd come out and join us for shooting from time to time and introduced me to different guns and calibers. It was around this time my wishy washy position towards gun control turned into religious fervor against, with things like this and the reading of Tom Clancy's amazing article "But I LIKE To Shoot". In my late 20s I took up skeet shooting and was super geeked by it - by this time I was in the AF and shooting was a skill I needed.

Eventually I became a gun owner due to a conversation I had with a senior officer for whom I had (and still have) immense respect. He told me that he went out and bought a M9 for his own practice on his own time because just "qualifying" wasn't enough in his view. So the M9 became my first gun. Eighteen months before I first shot with it, I spent many evenings taking it apart and putting it back together so I would know how to do that in my sleep.

Therefore my plunging into guns and shooting was, as far as my family was concerned, sui generis. (It's not that they are anti-gun zealots; they are just all "meh" on the subject.) Anyways, here I am with a modest collection, looking to expand, of course - when the current uncertainty ends.

Rifle barrel cleaning thoughts, by one of the top barrel makers (Lilja):

http://riflebarrels.com/barrel-fouling/

Apparently, there is a limit to ow clean a bore should be AFTER a shooting session.

Their library of articles is here, and they are all worth reading.

Be aware and forewarned: non-trivial math is present, and expected to be used.

http://riflebarrels.com/barrel-making/


Finally:

Do you live in California, as I do? Then you likely want to spend more than a few dollars on ammunition ... TODAY.

On 01 July, new laws take effect regarding purchasing of ammunition.

Plan on NOT being allowed to buy ammo unless you already have a firearm that uses that caliber (I could be wrong on this, but why find out?). I also assume that there is a limit to the amount that may be purchased per day/week/(some state-mandated time interval)

Naturally, I just got back from purchasing a variety of calibers, and in not-small quantities. I was not alone, in bot being there and in purchasing strategy and quantity. Apparently this has been going on for 2-3 weeks.

I don't see a shortage in the near-term future, although the selection today was unusually low, but the varities of popular calibers were less abundant. I see lots of hassle, and questions, and "no" answers. Spending $70 for a few 50rd boxes of FMJ (of my caliber, and then a caliber or 2 that I don't have) makes sense to me.

207 And if I'm any indication, the safes /safe is to damn small.

"I wish I'd bought the smaller one" said no one, ever.

Some comedienne did a bit railing about "fun sized" Hallowe'en candy. "Since when is smaller more fun?" Pretty sure she wasn't alluding to gun safes though.

223 Cleaning: like Weasel, for the most part, depends on platform and how/how much it's been used. Like Mark, my XD now gets cleaned minimally. And speaking of that, my "basic" cleaning now usually consists of wipe down, removing any egregious fouling, and a [dry] snake down the bore several times.


Exceptions are the Mosins, due to use of "corrosive" ammo - boiling water down the bore, then some kind of solvent cleaning, with brush and patches. And the M-1s [two Garands and one carbine] because precious babies that I want to pamper and keep perfect.


Revolver cylinder face fouling is annoying. I have the lead-removal cloth [Weasel - is that the same as "tack" cloth?] I use sparingly [don't want to remove any metal anywhere].


CLP for solvent, plus Frog stuff my Navy SEAL buddy gave me, also foaming bore cleaner when I feel like sorta/not really doing a thorough cleaning. Oh - and Butch's Bore-shine on the rifle bores when they a real cleaning.


Wipe down exterior with silicon cloth every time I handle them. CLP's "COL" formula for outsides of rifles if I won't be using them soon.

235 For cleaning, I clean my guns every time I come back from the range. Maybe it's the AF in me - as we clean our guns every time we are done qualifying - but I also want my guns ready to go at a moment's notice.

I clean them with Hoppe's and they also make a lubricant that I use. I found out the hard way that my Beretta really, really likes lubricant. (One day at the range the Beretta kept jamming and the slide wasn't going forward fully after shots. A RSO checked it out and told me that Berettas need plenty of lubricant to function. So I took his advice and put a good amount of it on the slide after a post-range visit cleaning. No issues since.) I got a cleaning kit, a bag full of cloth squares and the needed solvents/lubricants so I am good to go at all times.

238 Be careful, folks. Trap shooting can be addictive. Especially for those of us too slow to shoot skeet and hit the damn supersonic birds on purpose.

I started trap shooting using one of those H and R single shot 12 gauge. It kicked like a F'ing mule. Then I switched to an old Sears bolt action 12 gauge with a medium choke. It did the job if I did mine. Doesn't take a multi-thousand dollar gun to compete although they may give the shooter an edge.

242 Range this week: duty day on Thursday, damn Navy took up all 3 small ranges, so limited fun shooting. Did do a sighting in of the repro Model 1866 Yellow Boy @ 5Oyds - ended up doing no sight adjustment, windage was close enough to true that my own errors probably accounted for all the variance. Also rested and sighted in the Model 66 revolver at 1O yards - need a slight elevation change.


A young first-time shooter/gun-owner came in, I spent a lot of time with him down on the 2-lane mini-range they've put on the side of the trap range for days like that - when all the small ranges are rented out - he had a Sig 229. Very nice piece. He shot the 1O-ring out of 5 targets at about 1O yards. Amazing. He said he's been studying up. Anyway, good to see a new young gun nut in the making [he already is lusting for a 1911, and a Garand].


And - one guy had a stunning Mauser. The metal was beautiful, looked new. From the "custom shop" in Berlin, 1938 I think. Gorgeous industrial art.

White silicon grease or the purpose-made red gun grease on Garand, carbine, 1911 slides. And still using up a little can of "general purpose household oil" I found in the garage that dates from the 7Os. Only the rifles and 1911 take much oil, tho I do occasionally oil all the bores on all the gunz.

275 Ah, OK I remember the question now. Looking for nightstand concealment options, primarily for quick access. There are magnets, which doesn't sound like a great idea because it's not a positive hold and could have unintended effects on items on top of the nightstand. There are various safes, which are a little awkward given where the bed is. The most convenient-looking one (Gunvault SV500) has a handy placement like a hardcover book standing on its edge and hinges downward, but has alarming reports of batteries dying unexpectedly and the electronics don't sound reliable. Finally there are elastic bands that fasten under the nightstand, but they look like they're all cut for ordinary pistols, not one with a TLR-7 hanging on it.

What I'd really like is a barebones Kydex holster for a light-bearing VP9 that has a flat backing that I can just screw into the nightstand, but I have no idea where to find such a thing.

294 I advised the new shooter this week not to over-clean his gun. For semi-auto handguns [polymer frame, steel upper], a good snaking of the bore and field strip/wipe-down of fouling should suffice, for range use-level of dirtiness. Especially with FMJ ammo.

I could maybe wrangle something - it's a mattress-on-slats, not a box spring, so the mattress sits under the edge of the bed frame slightly.

The thing about those (and I looked at maybe redneck engineering one of those in-car rigs to work for the bed or nightstand) is that they presuppose gun, standard, people, for the shooting of. If you're really lucky, they list 1911, Glock, and revolver models. Ones that fit kraut guns with high sights, threaded muzzles, and lights are hen's teeth.

On plugging before Parkerizing. I used to hot blue. I was taught NOT to plug the barrel, as the first shot would clean out all the blueing. I don't have any experience with Parkerizing. Different process; different result.

It has an AC power supply - with battery backup for the electronics.
You can (and I did), bolt it to a wall stud with the supplied cable.
