New York Times Issues Series of Embarrassing Corrections About Basic Christian Beliefs

Even I know most of this stuff and I only went to Sunday school about three times.

As for the saints-sacraments -- I also guessed that they might be relics or statues.

Based on this French language tweet:



But 1, that's partly because I was translating from the French "saints sacraments" and didn't know if those words had a special meaning when paired (they do -- it's just not on WordReference.com!), and 2, I also said I did not know what this term meant, but was guessing at its meaning, not reporting, authoritatively, what it meant, and 3, I corrected and added the right information in about 20 minutes when two readers told me what it meant.

BTW: I also forgot that "saint" actually means "holy" in French, and just took it to have the meaning we associate it with in English, that is, a person elevated to sainthood.

This bit of forgetting led me down a crooked path of mistranslation.

Mark Hemingway points out the New York Time's very provincial ignorance:


Just in time for Easter, The New York Times has been forced to run yet another correction that speaks to the paper’s profound ignorance regarding the basic beliefs of Christianity.

In a Thursday report on the fire at Notre Dame, The Times highlighted the actions of Father Jean-Marc Fournier, the Paris Fire Department chaplain who exposed himself to certain danger in order to recover the cathedral’s treasured relics.

"I had two priorities: to save the crown of thorns and a statue of Jesus," the Grey Lady quoted him. The story was full of gripping details about the scramble to preserve this statue. "As the chaplain began removing a statue of Jesus, he said, his colleagues were fighting the fire from the cathedral's towers," the paper reported. "With the statue in hand, Father Fournier, alone in the nave, gave a benediction to the cathedral, he said."

There’s one small problem here. There’s no statue of Jesus inside Notre Dame. What Father Fournier was referring to was the Blessed Sacrament, communion bread that, according to Catholic doctrine, contains the real presence of Jesus Christ.

Sure enough, The New York Times later appended this correction to the story: "An earlier version of this article misidentified one of two objects recovered from Notre-Dame by the Rev. Jean-Marc Fournier. It was the Blessed Sacrament, not a statue of Jesus."

They did what I did, I think: They tried to translate the French term used here, "saints sacraments," and they guessed it referred to some kind of relic or statue, as I did, though they added this bizarre specificity that it was definitely a statue and furthermore a statue of that most famous saint, St. Jesus.

Okay, so: Are the New York Times' French translation resources no better than my own?

In fact, they seem worse, because I never had any confidence in my guess. The New York Times reports -- as if it's a verified fact! -- that saints sacraments refers to a statue of Jesus.

By the way: Here's a hint that that couldn't possibly be right:

Saints sacraments."

Does the New York Times not know that the French plural is just like the English plural -- you add an -s, 98% of the time?

And, though some singular words end in -s (as they also sometimes do in English), you can tell that this is indeed a plural because the adjective, sacrament, is also pluralized to agree with the noun?

Seriously? There is no possible way that someone with even the most basic acquaintance with French could think that saints sacraments referred to A statue (singular) of Jesus.

Wait, I mean Saint Jesus.

How could the newspaper possibly confuse these two things? The most logical explanation is that Father Fournier referred to the “body of Christ,” and the reporter took his words literally and not seriously. It doesn’t appear to be a translation error; the reporter who wrote the story, Elian Peltier, appears to be fluent in French and tweets in the language regularly.

Yeah, I'm going to guess "No" on this. To repeat, I myself found a French news source reporting that le couronne d'epines et les saints-sacrements s'ont sauvee', or words to that effect, and I guessed (because the crown of thorns is itself a relic) that the saints-sacraments might be other relics.

I'm going to guess that this idiot saw the same reference and made the same religiously-ignorant guess that I did -- but stated it as a fact, and a correct translation.

Okay, so I don't want to steal everything from Mark Hemingway. So I'll just tell you that if you click the link to see the Times' previous Body of Christ-related corrections, you'll find out that the New York Times thinks that Christians believe that Jesus is buried in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre -- which seems to me to be another wild-assed, Bart-Simpson-Book-Report-style guess based on context.

Also, they think that Easter is the day Christ was resurrected... into Heaven.

And they think the crook'd staff a bishop carries is a "crow's ear," rather than a crosier or crozier.

I mean, it just goes on and on.

Professor Henry Jones Jr. is baffled at the ignorance of the curators of the supposed holy repository of all the facts that need knowing.

Is there a single Christian employed at the New York Times?

If not -- that's awfully strange, isn't it? Perhaps it's time to open an EEOC investigation into this Hate Group.

By the way: Here's the priest the New York Times is quoting-- the chaplain of the French fire brigade who was brought with them into the cathedral to rescue objects of inestimable value.

He does say that his second goal was to save "Jesus," but then follows that with "present en les saints-sacrements" -- taken together, "Jesus, present in the saints-sacrements."

Not "present in a statue."

Also: plural.

And also, not just "Saving Jesus." Saving Jesus, present in the holy hosts.

Here's how another French source put it:

Le père Fournier se fixe deux objectifs : d’abord, « sauver la couronne d’épines et les reliques de la passion », puis « sauver Jésus » en récupérant le Saint-Sacrement, c’est-à-dire les hosties consacrées.

"Father Fournier set himself upon two objectives, first, "saving the crown of thorns and the relics of the Passion," then "saving Jesus," in recovering the Saint-Sacrement, which is to say the consecrated hosts."

Here's the thing: the French word for statue is, get this, "statue," and I find it strange that in no quotation from this guy does he ever mention the word "statue" but repeatedly specifies Jesus as present in the saints-sacrements.

But the New York Times and its Pulitzer winning reporters and editorials just guess that saint-sacraments means "statue."

Bonus: Real Headline from the AP. This is real. This is not The Onion or the Babylon Bee.

27 *wades through the comments about slanted text*

There was an article in the NYT in the 1980s who went on a quest to find out about these strange and frightening evangelicals who helped Ronald Reagan win. He wrote an article for the LA Times (and later a book) all about it. His conclusions were pretty amazing for me as a boy raised among Christians my whole life. Not what he learned but why he had to learn it.

This epiphany - it would be hard to call it anything else, except maybe a revelation - transformed the way I approached my beat. I discarded the traditional way of structuring my stories. No more, "While some wacko evangelical leaders over here say this, these rational secularists and moderate mainliners over there say that," with an author or academic in the middle tossed in for balance.

Evangelicals were no longer caricatures or abstractions. I learned to interpret their metaphors and read their body language. From personal, day-to-day experience I observed what John Green at the University of Akron has discerned from extensive research: evangelicals were not monolithic nor were they, as The Washington Post infamously characterized them, "poor, uneducated and easy to command."


He was inexcusably ignorant about the dominant religion of the nation -- at time about 80% of the country identified as Christian -- because he just knew nobody and worked with nobody who was one.

And in the intervening decades its hardly gotten any better

My mother tried to teach me a particular lesson once. When she was young, if you wanted to brag about being smart, you bragged about all of the books you read.

As a high school teacher years later, she was surprised to learn that it was no longer reading things that led people to consider themselves smart, but not reading things and managing to get good grades anyway.

I think that's a manifestation of the same phenomenon. People are arrogantly proud of what they think they know.

54 As someone wisely pointed out long ago, the problem with "quotas" is not that you let in unqualified minorities. Its that by trying to make numbers include x% of every group regardless of size/depth of talent pool, who applies, etc. you end up lowering standards altogether.

At the forefront of Diversity Uber Alles thinking, I think the Times has reached the end of this evolutionary cul de sac sooner than most. Almost every one of their articles about a "culturally sensitive" issue is now co-written by two or more drooling retards of fascinatingly diverse origin.

Okay, so I don't want to steal everything from Mark Hemingway. So I'll
just tell you that if you click the link to see the Times' previous Body
of Christ-related corrections, you'll find out that the New York Times
thinks that Christians believe that Jesus is buried in the Church of the
Holy Sepulchre -- which seems to me to be another wild-assed,
Bart-Simpson-Book-Report-style guess based on context.

Also, they think that Easter is the day Christ was resurrected... into Heaven.

And they think the crook'd staff a bishop carries is a "crow's ear," rather than a crosier or crozier.

I mean, it just goes on and on.



They also think that Revrund Jessie Jackson and Revrund Al Not-So-Sharpton, the members of Westboro Baptist Church, and that Buttplug guy are all Christians. Oh, and Brother James Comey, too.


They're not.

Don't know if you've ever been to France, but the old rumors are still true, to some extent:

When an American tries to speak French in France to a French person, 80% of the they either

a. Actually don't understand you; or
b. Pretend to not understand you, as punishment for pronouncing everything slightly wrong.

The problem, is, it's impossible to tell to what extent the French really can't understand your speech versus to what extent they're just being Language Chauvinists and humiliating you on purpose because you are an inferior foreigner.

As a result, it can be really really intimidating to try to plunge in and just try to talk French to people naturally there. Only if you're in a coddled environment with friends and acquaintances who will forgive you faux pas can you relax enough to even try. In stressful real-life situations, the average Frnechman will not forgive (or even understand) your blunders. On my third trip to France, to be honest, I just pretended not to know French at all. Trying to speak it but mispronouncing everything and getting various slang and idioms wrong was just too humiliating.

154 I blew through the full one, though I really just tried to read it as I would English, refusing to look up every word I didn't recognize and just try to capture context.

Maybe I understood less than I realized. I also read the first few Harry Potter books in French. They're designed for children, so it was definitely an easier read.

I've read chemistry papers in French and Italian, and I've never had a course in either (just started Duolingo in French last month). I started out looking up words in a dictionary, but after a while, didn't bother because, surprisingly, I could guess words from context with very few mistakes from English and Latin cognates (I had Latin in high school) and chemical terminology.

"The flask was charged with the reactants and the solution heated to [unfamiliar word] for 2 hours."

[unfamiliar word] from context = "reflux"

That sort of thing.

LOL. The French hated Americans when I went there. But my mom was there for awhile back in the 60s, when they still liked us, and she tells a story about buying a train ticket.

She was summoning up her French and thinking through the ticket order, because the English lady in front of her couldn't speak French, and was struggling through terribly with the ticket guy.

Once they got done, he discerned she was American, and completed her transaction in flawless English.

-- French people in random untouristed out-of-the-way place, however, actually do not understand you at all.

When my husband told him it would hurt a lot of Americans, he said "they need the pain." He was Carter's Ambassador to the EU at the time.

Trust me, you fooled no one. Americans might as well wear sandwich board signs in Europe. They stick out like sore thumbs, even without baseball caps, etc.

I think it's for two reasons. One is that Americans typically wear brighter colors than Europeans.

Kim Foxx's Top Ethics Officer and Conviction Integrity Officer Resign in Wake of Corrupt Smollett Whitewash

The article doesn't say they resigned in protest of that corrupt swindle-- but it's hard to avoid that conclusion.

Two officials have resigned from their positions in the office of Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kim Foxx in the wake of her decision to drop charges against disgraced "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett.

April Perry, Foxx's chief ethics officer, and Conviction Integrity Director Mark Rotert have both tendered their resignations and will serve their last days on the job in May.

...

Perry, Cook County's first ethics officer, initially encouraged Foxx to recuse herself from the Smollett case after learning that she had spoken about the case to members of the actor's family

Of course, she did not recuse herself. She merely told the public that she was recusing herself, while retaining authority over the case (and meddling in it).

She would later explain that she recused herself "colloquially," which is not a thing that actually exists.

Either by increasing the number of white convictions...

Since there seems to have been blow back when she did the first method, I guess that just means she'll have to jack up the number of white convictions, justified or otherwise.

This is true. The fix is Canada or Mexico sells full flush toilets. Or you can pick one out at any dump in the US and clean it up. All you need to install it with is a wrench and maybe a screwdriver.

The growing season is limited and you have to clear the ground for a plow to make it through. If you run cattle you have to make sure there are no holes and whatnot that can break you cows legs.

Nah. Low-flush toilets vary GREATLY in their capabilities.

We have a Geberit in-wall setup in our master bathroom, where the tank is two feet up in the wall above the bowl. Geberit tank, Duravit bowl.

We have a Toto thing in one of our other bathrooms, more conventional floor-mount with integral tank.

In fifteen years the Duravit has plugged...maybe twice, and a second flush usually clears it.

The Toto plugs basically once every five times it's used.

I'm not necessarily saying all Totos are bad, but we're about to remodel another bathroom and, aside from staggering the wall studs to minimize sound transmission out of the bathroom, it's gonna get another wall-hung Duravit.

146 Psalm 55

My heart is in anguish within me, the terrors of death have fallen upon me.

Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me.

And I say, O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest; yea, I would wander afar, I would lodge in the wilderness, I would hasten to find me a shelter from the raging wind and tempest.

Destroy their plans, O Lord, confuse their tongues; for I see violence and strife in the city.

Day and night they go around it on its walls; and mischief and trouble are within it, ruin is in its midst; oppression and fraud do not depart from its marketplace.

It is not an enemy who taunts me - then I could bear it; it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me - then I could hide from him.

But it is you, my equal, my companion, my familiar friend.

We used to hold sweet converse together; within God ' s house we walked in fellowship.

184 When the reality is that the "homeless" are in fact largely vagrants, bums, parasites and assorted ne'er-do-wells who are mentally ill, alcoholic, drug addicts, or some combination thereof.

Yeah. I mean there are genuine casualties of disaster, real people who lost their homes because things went terribly wrong out of their control. Fire, financial collapse, horrendous illnesses, etc. There are vets out there without a home because they can't make that transition back to the world quite right.

But the vast majority are addicts, retards, and lunatics. I dealt with homeless a lot when I was younger and clerk ta a downtown convenience store (bodega, for the New Yorkers). Most of them were nice enough people and fine to get along with but they were all damaged and troubled people. Most of them were in and out of prison or mental hospitals. Even the nicest, kindliest ones would rip you off in an instant.

Am I the only one who bristles at the term "homeless?" It suggests
Ozzie and Harriet living comfy middle class lives, and then losing their
homes through no fault of their own, i.e., people who deserve
compassion.

+++My mother pointed this out to me years ago - how just one word like "homeless" changes the entire meaning, like you say they are druggies, alcoholics, bum, hobos, illegals, vagrants, etc. and combos. Calling them "homeless" makes them sound much more helpless and pitiful.

Buttplug raises another issue: there's a reason why the Bible inveighs against perversions generally. No need to invoke any mystical or religious origin for that. It's because the Bible represents the distillate of a lot of human experience on how to live, and over the eons humans had noticed that perversions spread disease, just as adultery, theft, bearing false witness (yeah, I'm looking at the MSM here) and murder all weaken society.

Engaging in any of those behaviors is a recipe for misery, sooner or later. As we are seeing today.

I suspect that people who really are struck down by cruel fate typically get back on their feet in fairly short order. My wife's cousin married an abusive drunken asshole, then she got leukemia, at which point the asshole bailed out and she had to live in a shelter and was on welfare.

But then she went back to school, completed a nursing degree, now has a good job, a new good husband, and a good life.

But I suspect the converse is also true. People who create their own problems will continue to do so - no matter what - until they change themselves. The difference between, e.g., Christina Onassis or any of the Kennedys and the bums and vagrants boils down to the former have a lot of money, but otherwise they're pretty much the same.

Yeah its possible, but you have to want to and be willing to do what it takes, and that's where the blockage starts. They have to clean up, get work they don't want to do, lay off the drugs and booze, etc. And that's stuff they won't do.

You can tell the ones who are willing because they get off the streets. There's tons of help out there available, both private and public. This isn't Victorian London where you're living in Seven Dials and have no hope.

253 there's a reason why the Bible inveighs against perversions generally. No need to invoke any mystical or religious origin for that. It's because the Bible represents the distillate of a lot of human experience on how to live, and over the eons humans had noticed that perversions spread disease, just as adultery, theft, bearing false witness

In the prologue to Milton's Paradise Lost, he says, paraphrasing, he wrote it to explain the ways of God to man. I think he got backwards, or at least sideways. In mythology, Hera hated Hercules because he was Zeus' illegitimate son and so she sent two snakes to kill him in his crib. Perhaps her hatred was not logical, or divine, but it sure was human. The Bible, too, explains the ways of men to men. And no amount of Communist Manifesto will change that.

From what I understand, it's more than that.

Conservatives lost law schools decades ago, and with that loss we lost an organizational structure to develop conservative lawyers and (by extension) justices. This lack of an organizational structure led to a certain atrophy in conservative legal thought.

Something like 25 years ago, that began to change. I think The Federalist Society is one of the earliest examples of the new conservative legal organization fostering conservative lawyers now, but it took a long time to get them in a place where they could be highly influential in the same league as places like Harvard Law and Yale Law naturally exist.

Now, with Trump using The Federalist Society to staff the judiciary, a massive tide is turning within the 3rd branch of government. It goes way way beyond SCOTUS. Originalism is likely to become the dominant legal theory on constitutional matters for a few generations because of the combination of The Federalist Society, Mitch McConnell, and Donald Trump.

In industry the company once caused uproar by saying it would pay Christmas bonuses the paycheck after the traditional one. I had direct reports who were incensed by this, because they'd been counting on the bonus to pay their bills. I was astonished: these people were making six figure salaries, and most had Ph.D.s.

Chris Buskirk: William Barr Was Right and the Media and Ruling Class Were Wrong About Everything. It's Time for Them to Admit It.

Nice.

Read the whole thing.

Chris Buskirk of American Greatness, writing at the New York Times:

For nearly four years, members of America’s ruling class, especially those in the media, the academy and government, have operated on one central, unquestioned assumption: orange man bad. This stifling orthodoxy led to a blind, counterfactual faith in the theory that Mr. Trump had somehow colluded with "the Russians" (never well defined) to win the election. Again, the specific charges were always amorphous -- plastic enough to change as needed. That's hardly surprising: That's the way conspiracy theories always work. The Russian collusion hoax was in fact nothing more than a massively multiplayer coping mechanism for people who couldn't accept the results of the 2016 election.

But why is it not enough to simply acknowledge that you dislike Mr. Trump and disagree with his policies? What psychological purpose does adding the fiction of a conspiracy serve?

The French philosopher and literary critic Rene' Girard held that such scapegoating and ritual sacrifice is an essential part of group identity and solidarity. That seems to apply here. Mr. Trump ran against American elites and their insular culture. Their response was to load onto him all of the sins they see in American society and attempt to sacrifice him to appease their gods.

Mr. Girard asked a question that is pertinent today: "Why is our own participation in scapegoating so difficult to perceive and the participation of others so easy? To us, our fears and prejudices never appear as such because they determine our vision of people we despise, we fear, and against whom we discriminate."

But the ritual sacrifice of Donald Trump didn't work -- at least not in the sense of removing him from office. It certainly did have the effect of catalyzing and uniting his opponents. Still, one of the many ironies here is that the Trump-hating media has handed him an incredibly powerful weapon for the 2020 campaign, one that may ensure his re-election.

Again, the operating principle was that of the zealot: Believe the narrative regardless of the lack of evidence, squint to see justifications where there are none and then in an intoxicated frenzy of moral superiority use any weapon at hand to destroy your enemy.

He also briefly talks about the NeverTrumpers, always eager to be Useful Idiots for their true political allies, the upper class left.

Speaking of, let's check in with another NeverTrump Collusion Truther, deftly mutating his conspiracy theory to avoid previous refutations:

33 Liberalism and Progressivism and all the other Isms on the Left are no longer political factions. They are religious cults, designed to be run on sheer unwavering faith, and faith alone. Facts and evidence are to be discarded as needed.

It's no wonder the Left can't take the Mueller report, and refuses to believe it. Imagine if a book was discovered, authentically written in Mohammed's hand*, that said that Islam was a massive get-rich-quick scheme on his behalf. The world's moslems would refuse to believe it, proclaim it a hoax, etc.

Actually, it started as a pathetic joke of an accusation during the campaign. Barky even tried to take the Russians to a hot war over Syria in order to damage Trump's candidacy. Pretty sick shit. But, that's nothing new with Barky and his America-hating dem scumbags.

They never believed in Russian collusion. They willingly pushed a lie that the knew was a lie because they are lying liars.

They were not blindly faithful believers in the curative powers of Doc Johnson's Miracle Tonic Elixir, they were the snake oil salesman in charge of getting you and I to buy into the ruse.

If they had faith in anything, they had faith in our intelligence communities ability to frame President Trump, that's what has them disappointed, and rightfully so.

If the combined efforts of 90% of the media and 100% of the intelligence community and the entire DNC with billions of dollars and unlimited manpower and surveillance info are too incompetent to frame one real estate tycoon, you should be disappointed and perplexed.

But don't give them the generousity of pretending they thought that Russian collusion was real. That's an insult to actual naive, mentally handicapped people that fall for such things.

The best defense is a good offense strategy. Literally treasonous actions by Obama/Clinton and especially Clinton were to be concealed forever. At this point, only half the battle has been won by Trump. But the real battle - the existential battle - is the second half which mandates who and to what degree real crimes were committed.

It's astounding -- it appears they really do believe that!

So now - unless something intervenes, like arrests of men like Clapper and Brennan, that the House *will* try impeachment. Not because it's a good idea, the leadership knows its a bad one - but because their rabid base demands it.

And the leadership may just decided that its better to keep the base happy and go down in flames next election.

110 The Russian collusion hoax was in fact nothing more than a massively multiplayer coping mechanism for people who couldn't accept the results of the 2016 election.

You have to go deeper in the facts.

1. Surveillance of the Trump campaign started waaaaay earlier than the media dillholes will admit unless you hold their head in the toilet long enough.

2. The FBI (at Brennan or one of his minion's suggestion I posit) begins paying Steele to write the only thing more implausible than Fifty Shades of Grey.

3. Simultaneously, they begin running every Russian they can find at every Trump staffer they see to invent a predicate.

4. The gang of nitwits, you know the same dozen names ohrstrozkpagemccabe, "set the media hook" with the dossier.

5. Hillary loses.

6. Collusion BS thrown against the wall AND sudden blossoming concerns about "sources and methods" as well as "Doing things by the book."

Somewhere, sometime, TFG authorized this stuff (and I stand by my statement that Cruz and Paul were also targets). And he did so because there is something else here that we do not see. Something so big that it powered this kind of recklessness.

128 You have to go deeper in the facts.

1. Surveillance of the Trump campaign started waaaaay earlier than the media dillholes will admit unless you hold their head in the toilet long enough.

2. The FBI (at Brennan or one of his minion's suggestion I posit) begins paying Steele to write the only thing more implausible than Fifty Shades of Grey.

3. Simultaneously, they begin running every Russian they can find at every Trump staffer they see to invent a predicate.

4. The gang of nitwits, you know the same dozen names ohrstrozkpagemccabe, "set the media hook" with the dossier.

5. Hillary loses.

6. Collusion BS thrown against the wall AND sudden blossoming concerns about "sources and methods" as well as "Doing things by the book."

Somewhere, sometime, TFG authorized this stuff (and I stand by my statement that Cruz and Paul were also targets). And he did so because there is something else here that we do not see. Something so big that it powered this kind of recklessness.

I know. Hope springs eternal. The guy fires Comey, as he was commanded to do, and then hires a man with close professional and personal and money connections to Comey to head up the Special Counsel.

The logic here is an obvious progression.

1.) Rod Rosenstein is an honest lawman, but the single most incompetent one in the country, and managed to rise to the top of the FBI by Chance the Gardener luck.

2.) Rod Rosenstein was a deep state crony, he and his friends viewed the Comey firing as a trigger for a coup, he installed one of Comey's homies to get the President and his crew, and now he's playing both sides against the middle to save his lousy skin.

159 Alan Dershowitz: Who won, who lost in Mueller report

https://tinyurl.com/yy6ruwhx

Snip~

Barr takes the view - a view that I have argued for many months - that the act requirement of a crime (actus reus) cannot be satisfied by a constitutionally authorized action of the president, such as firing FBI Director James Comey. Mueller takes the view that a constitutionally authorized act can be turned into a crime if it is improperly motivated.

Mueller's view is extreme and dangerous to civil liberties because it creates pure thought crimes. According to Mueller, the corrupt motive is the crime because surely the constitutionally authorized act cannot be criminal. The implications of this view for all Americans are frightening. They are especially frightening if applied to a president. Do we really want prosecutors or members of Congress to probe the motivations of presidents when they take constitutionally authorized actions?

--------------------
He served Trump purpose and that was to bell the cat by remaining a AAG over Mueller. Mueller could not play loose knowing Rod was in for himself. He had to play it by the book and only editorialize for the Peanut Gallery. I am pretty sure, this too, serves Trump's purpose.

Well, firslty, starting during his campaign I noticed a significant disconnect between people running around with their hair on fire and what had actually occurred. This has led me to view anyone with their hair on fire with a level of skepticism.

Secondly, I noticed no difference between how policy or personality were addressed. Which led me to view anyone who portrays personality with the same seriousness as policy as profoundly unserious.

Thirdly, it's not Trump supporters with cognitive issues who answer questions such as, "What, in particular do you disagree with him about?" with incoherent animal noises such as "REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

That's being wrong.

But have you ever caught your wife lying? She says she's going shopping with friends and you suspect otherwise and catch her out with another guy? She will scream at you, throw things at you, change her lie, try to make it your fault and claim you're being an asshole for the way you respond and not trusting her.

That's f*cking lying.

196 Dear Mr. French,

It's rich that after spending two years pushing a fake, illogical, ridiculous conspiracy theory that millions of us saw through in a New York minute, you still think anyone cares what you think, or welcomes your advice on the "type of man" we "free people" should want to lead our nation. (A nation, by the way, that does not have a Russian agent at its helm; a fact that- bizarrely -seems to annoy you.)

Frankly, I know, without any help from you, what type of person I want leading us: one who is loyal to his country, who fights back when unfairly and viciously attacked, who defends others who are unfairly vilified, who is not afraid to call out the wrongdoers, who does not kowtow to political correctness at the expense of the truth, and who truly understands that he works for the American citizens, not the global elites. Two years ago, I had no idea that man would be Donald Trump.

So you go ahead and vote for whoever you want; I'll be voting for President Trump.

Second, it was important in 2nd debate to get Trump on record to accept results. If he didn't, stuff would be leaked. Obviously none of this would have come out had Hillary been elected THOUGH IT ALL STILL OCCURRED.


Finally, Obama knew Hillary was weak. And knew Trump would take a wrecking ball to his pen and phone achievements.

207 Mueller's view is extreme and dangerous to civil liberties because it creates pure thought crimes. According to Mueller, the corrupt motive is the crime because surely the constitutionally authorized act cannot be criminal. The implications of this view for all Americans are frightening. They are especially frightening if applied to a president. Do we really want prosecutors or members of Congress to probe the motivations of presidents when they take constitutionally authorized actions?

This is just the natural extension of the bullshit (and un-Constitutional) hate-crimes crap. There are crimes. Period. It doesn't matter if you hate the person you're committing the crime aginst, don't know them, don't care, or whatever. The crime is the crime.

Leftists love to pervert the system. THey abuse the notion of "intent" - a crime versus an accident - and start to eat away at the idea that THE IDEA is the crime, not the action. But, we've been heading this way even before the hate-crime crap, back when the courts started giving more and more leeway to ridiculous "insanity" defenses ... DEFENSES!! and even up to the latest SCOTUS outrage of claiming that a guy can't be held liable for his crime if he, all of a sudden, claims to forget it!!

Dershowitz makes a nice little statement, here, about Trump's legitimate action to fire Comey (and the right action - Trump would have been irresponsible NOT to have fired him) but I'm not so sure that Dershowitz is willing to really go after the lunatic rules we have built in our judiciary and courts concerning lawyers' alleged expertise in the finer points of the human psyche. It would be laughable if it wasn't so destabilizing and dangerous.

I know. Hope springs eternal. The guy fires Comey, as he was commanded to do, and then hires a man with close professional and personal and money connections to Comey to head up the Special Counsel.

The logic here is an obvious progression.

1.) Rod Rosenstein is an honest lawman, but the single most incompetent one in the country, and managed to rise to the top of the FBI by Chance the Gardener luck.

2.) Rod Rosenstein was a deep state crony, he and his friends viewed the Comey firing as a trigger for a coup, he installed one of Comey's homies to get the President and his crew, and now he's playing both sides against the middle to save his lousy skin.

You're referring to mens rea.

Let's take your example. The reason why intent to defraud is necessary for the crime is because the underlying action itself may not be criminal in and of itself.

Let's say I have a Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card. I sell it to you and tell you it's authentic. It is not.

If I believed it was authentic and sold it to you in good faith belief it was authentic, that is not fraud.

If I knew it was fake, then that's fraud.

The difference is taking actions that are not improper and deeming them improper due solely to intent.

Intent is not motive. Intent is "Did you intend to do this action."* Motive is "Why I intended to do this act."

the entire WH Press Corps set up Trump for humiliation by Obama.

That was pretty rude of them to do. But when you have no respect for anyone but yourself (because of your gigantic ego), that's the way you act.

On top of all of that, it's just plain old stupid.

The American public knew exactly what kind of person Trump was. That French has his panties in a twist that anyone would vote for him anyway does not mean that people were unaware of who Trump is as a person.

It was reported in the Washington Post of all places that another person in the meeting said Rosenstein was responding sarcastically to McCabe when McCabe brought up the idea of the 25 Amendment.

Baker was NOT in the meeting. He was quoting what one of the key operatives in the coup and a guy who was fired by the FBI OPR (thanks to Rosenstein) for lying told him. Andrew McCabe.

Roger. There just seems to be a lot of confusion on that process. Not all signatures are the same.

The affiant, the one who swears that the evidence is true and that the Woods Procedures have been followed, is the person who is screwed because neither of those things is true. Rosenstein was not the affiant.

Posted by: JackStraw at April 19, 2019 03:18 PM (/tuJf)

288 A whole bunch of media people are now completely screwed by their own actions and there is really no way out of it besides bluster --

1) they knew and they lied; and/or

2) they are so gullible they were fooled and passed along untruths without knowing they were lying.

Either way, what the hell does anyone need with their input or opinion? Why listen to a liar or a fool?

So, these people have no choice but to continue their horseshit. If they stop, the last remnant of people they are still fooling about the value of their opinion will also have a moment of peace, and during that moment a small percentage may even realize the folly of listening to any of these assholes.

So, their current financial existence now depends on doubling down no matter how it appears. Why should they continue to get $$millions/year if they have zero credibility? Their employers may soon realize how much they have to gain by replacing these assholes with new liars/fools that at least have a clean slate with a chance for credibility?

Deranged: McClatchy Comes Up With New Fake News to Rescue Its Old Fake News

Months ago, McClatchy, citing anonymous sources (of course), claimed that Michael Cohen actually was in Prague -- they claimed that his cell phone hand pinged a tower in Prague.

Now, the Mueller report says (again) that Michael Cohen was never in Prague. Never. Nev-er.

Neh-heh, veh-her.

But don't worry: McClatchy has an answer to that.

Sure, they now say, maybe Michael Cohen was not in Prague -- but what about his treasonous phone itself?

From McClatchy:

"The Mueller report states Mr. Cohen was not in Prague. It makes no statement on whether the investigation ever had evidence that Mr. Cohen's phone pinged in or near Prague, as McClatchy reported," said Kristin Roberts, McClatchy's East Region Editor.

McClatchy's Dec. 2018 reporting was based on information from five individuals with foreign intelligence connections, who all requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information shared and concerns about sources and methods. Each obtained their information independently from each other. McClatchy stands by the reporting.

135 it is suggested "they" thought Cohen was there, because in using the NSA unlimited spying capabilities, they got the wrong Cohen, but included the intel in their fabricated framing of Trump. iirc


now the narrative spewers/sewers have to fabricate some rationale for their fake news. But much of the spying off NSA data is illegal ... Mueller was doing it all the time, illegally, according to Bill Binney (that developed the whole ability to spy on the world).


They use all that data to catch crooks, then develop the evidence separately (parallel construction) since the illegally obtained spy stuff can't be used in court. BUT they also use the NSA data to frame people, like Trump ... since they can piece together fake stories to fit certain timelines, and push Russians into the campaign to entrap.

Reporters tend to be the dumbest college "educated" people. Think people who couldn't cut it as an education major. They aren't the old style reporters who had to work their way up the chain actually doing beat reporting. They have replaced most of the old guys. So now they just sit around waiting for their sources to tell them things that they breathlessly repeat.

172 This is reminiscent of the infamous "William West" case.

in 1903, a guy named William West was sentenced to Leavenworth prison for some theft-related crime. When he showed up, the admitting clerk said, "Whoa! You must have escaped! But we caught you and brought you back!"

But William West had never been to Leavenworth before. The guard insisted he was indeed a prisoner already at the prison, convicted of murder. They argued, so the clerk did what was then the standard way of confirming people's identities -- take their "Bertillion measurements," which entailed precisely measuring various facial featured and body parts. And this guy did indeed have the exact same Bertillion measurements as the murderer William West.

But then somehting shocking happened: They checked William West's cell, and he was still in it!

Turns out this new thief "William West" guy not only had the same name as the murderer William West, but he had the exact same Bertillion measurements, and more eerily he looked EXACTLY like him. And yet they were not related in any way!

(It was this case that convinced the Feds to start using fingerprints to ID suspects.)

Anyway, how many people on Earth are named "Michael Cohen"? Ten thousand? A hundred thousand? A million? And how many of them took a vacation in Prague? Probably more than a few.

248 Visa info would be pretty old-school and easy, but with this hilarious emphasis on Cohen's phone, it's pretty clearly sigint as the source.


And the hilarity of "sensitivity of sources and methods" ..... when the claim is that *his phone might have pinged near Prague* ..... well, it's as idiotic as almost everything these cretins "think", say, or write.


Lessee, how in the world would someone have determined that Cohen's phone was near Prague? What possible source of info might they have used?

The Michael Cohen in Prague mistake likely indicates the dossier was written in part based on NSA 302 queries done by an FBI contractor.

Mike Rogers/NSA discovered many, many queries on NSA db by these contractors and shut it down.

Hence, if Prague mistake is a mistake, it shows that FBI assisted with dossier, and maybe much bigger scandal about FBI allowing contractors like Fusion GPS and/or Crowdstrike use NSA dbs to get oppo research on opponents of Dems.

368 So, here's an interesting thing about The Post, Spielberg's movie about The Pentagon Papers.

The editor of the paper was chummy with Jack Kennedy, and admits that he buried stories for the president because he considered Kennedy a friend. He gives a speech to he publisher about how the press and politicians have been far too chummy for far too long, and now it must change.

He, of course, has wanted to publish The Papers since he heard about them when The NYT first started running its stories, so this isn't actually some great change of behavior from him. He was gonna do it no matter what, as long as his publisher allowed him to. He pretty much fully admits that he's a simpering partisan of a newspaper editor, but this effort to embarrass Nixon, a man he hates anyway, is meant to show him as a 1st Amendment hero.

It's such a bizarre movie.

Apparently the new collusion line of attack is that the Mueller report IS an indictment - it just didn't become an official indictment because different rules apply to POTUS, and if he were a private citizen (which he WAS at the time, but whatever) then he'd be indicted.

So, IOW, Trump did collude and obstruct, and we're not saying he was indicted... but he was indicted. For realsies, dudes.

410 The very idea that Rod Rosenstein is anything but a duplicitous deep state weasel is silly.

--------

I know. Hope springs eternal. The guy fires Comey, as he was commanded to do, and then hires a man with close professional and personal and money connections to Comey to head up the Special Counsel.

The logic here is an obvious progression.

1.) Rod Rosenstein is an honest lawman, but the single most incompetent one in the country, and managed to rise to the top of the FBI by Chance the Gardener luck.

2.) Rod Rosenstein was a deep state crony, he and his friends viewed the Comey firing as a trigger for a coup, he installed one of Comey's homies to get the President and his crew, and now he's playing both sides against the middle to save his lousy skin.

Number 1 is Bend, OR. The list includes places from all around, but there seems to be a theme, if you look at the demographics of each.

Lotsa white people, and few, if any, instances of "immigrant communities." Bend has 76,000 people and is over 91 percent white, with an AA "community" of only 0.5 percent.

That ain't much community.

Yes, Crowdstrike.
- Someone stole emails and gave 'em to Wikileaks.
- DNC then hired Crowdstrike to investigate and declare it was a hack by Russians in their report.
- They then destroyed the server after refusing to turn it over to the FBI. In the midst of all this Xavier Bacerra tuned over a copy of the server in attempt to pass it off as the original, IIRC?
- Wikileaks, after being blamed for working with Russian for the hack, pointed people to one of their classified memo drops that included mention that deep state had the ability to fake evidence of Russian hacking.

Close enough. The betrayer left after Jesus fingered him, but he didn't go back to pick up the reward until after Jesus' arrest.

30 pieces of silver IIRC was about the price of a healthy slave.

Posted by: Slapweasel, White Enthusiast, Town Drunk at April 19, 2019 12:20 PM (Ckg4U)

97 Was Jesus a good tipper?

On the one hand, he has a deep and abiding love for all living things, as everything this is, was and will be is a part of him.

On the other hand he was raised as a good Jewish boy so I'd say about a 12% tip.

I think it was more along the lines of, "Hey, Judas. Could you pick up the tab? I've invested all my money in palm futures. That's a good lad! Oh, and be sure to tip the nice gentleman generously." "Grumble, grumble, cheapskate. Never any money. Just because I cashed in big on Pilate's real estate escapade, he's always on my ass when it comes to cash. Just you wait, Mr. Big Shot!"

It's unfair when Jesus plays D+D though, because he automatically makes all saving throws. It's just known that Jesus Saves.

A father in Australia fought off several dingoes after his toddler son was locked in the jaws and dragged by one of the wild dogs early Friday, emergency medical officials told local news outlets.

The 14-month-old was dragged by the back of his neck and suffered a fractured skull and deep cuts on his head from the attack.

The family was asleep in their campervan on Fraser Island in Queensland when a dingo entered and grabbed the child. Paramedic Ben Du Toit said his parents woke up when they heard their child screaming and the sound moving farther away.

It has nothing to do with reality. It has to do with power and money. They continue to pander to their base and all those pansies who find Trump "too crude" to be president. They will lose a few percentage of believers, but they will keep enough to tide them over to the next media created event. Americans are stupid, for the most part.

It's not so much the age, but the dimensions: the beams are/were apparently 12" x 12". That's not easy to ignite. Best bet: the thermite reaction. Finding a congealed pool of elemental iron (the product of the thermite reaction) would be dispositive.

Yes, Crowdstrike.
- Someone stole emails and gave 'em to Wikileaks.
- DNC then hired Crowdstrike to investigate and declare it was a hack by Russians in their report.
- They then destroyed the server after refusing to turn it over to the FBI. In the midst of all this Xavier Bacerra tuned over a copy of the server in attempt to pass it off as the original, IIRC?
- Wikileaks, after being blamed for working with Russian for the hack, pointed people to one of their classified memo drops that included mention that deep state had the ability to fake evidence of Russian hacking.

Jack Straw no doubt remembers more about this . . .

BTW, there's a great documentary on YewToob about da Vinci's "Last Supper". Turns out there are two other paintings, each nearly identical, that came from daVinci's workshop. They're in much better condition than the one in Milan.

350 I chanced upon this work on a visit to the National Gallery. I was captivated by it and stunned motionless for a while. In person, it has a powerful effect. My feeling about this painting is that Dali captured a transcendence that most Western art depicting this subject could not define.

Posted by: kallisto at April 19, 2019 02:07 PM (AJwk0)

351 I would go back to the National Gallery just to see this painting. IMO the daVinci Last Supper - the one we Italian Catholics all had in our dining rooms - is trite and saccharine. But that's likely da Vinci being a product of his time, and also giving the customer what they want.

Didn't know this about Andy! I know about Don Shula and Mark Wahlberg though.

another element of this painting that moved me was the posture of the apostles, indicating they knew they were in the presence of the Man-God and demonstrating appropriate respect. I had the sense of a deep reverence on Dali's part when I viewed this painting. I think his portrayal of the apostles expressed his respect and honor for Our Lord.

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"I remember, a month or two before the 2016 election, that I did something I don't normally do: I actually went to the main page of the CNN website, and I was shocked. The page contained links to 6 of their main 'news' articles, all of them relentlessly negative toward Trump, and a couple of them virulently so. That's when I first realized that something had gone very, very wrong. There wasn't even a pretense of objectivity. So I was reminded of this yesterday when the Mueller report was released and there on CNN was this huge desk on the set (must've cost them a fortune) and behind it, there was a human centipede, 8 or 9 commentators, all relentlessly bashing Trump, eating and regurgitating each other's crap talking points. Again I was amazed, just like 2016, that any pretense of objectivity was gone. but now I guess that's just naivete on my part. The journalism standards have changed from 'you can run anything that you can corroborate with verified sources' to 'you can run anything that bashes Trump.' And then they get offended when Trump calls them the enemy of the people. I know because I hear them complaining about it when they're handing out journalisming awards to each other. Which I suppose they have to do, to shield themselves from the truth that most normal Americans hold them in the same regard as infomercials or used-car salesman. The guy who comes on Me-TV in the afternoon and promises you big money from suing some company if you've contracted mesothelioma is more reputable. Saul Goodman > Brian Stelter. Goodman actually works for a living. Stelter is just a pasty lump of dough."

221 Stanford White was a famous architect with outretastes. He kept a sex mansion above FAO Schwartz where he would wear out the society and entertainment ladies of NY. One of them was a young showgirl (Nesbit).

She later married an insane millionaire (Thaw) who couldn't take the fact that he'd been kicking in his stable before him. Nesbit told him it was rape so he wouldn't flip out on her for not being a virgin.

He responded by hunting down White at a rooftop party on one of the structures he designed (Madison Square Garden, IIRC) and capped him in front of G-d and everyone. It was a scandal.

238 Looking at Rachel Maddow's face the asymmetry seems to be mostly at the mouth, suggesting that she may have congenital absence of the depressor anguli oris muscle, or more appropriately (given her track record) "asymmretric crying facies syndrome"


"The depressor anguli oris muscle sometimes does not develop in utero, meaning the baby is born without the muscle. This absence is not noticeable when the baby is quiet; however, when crying a facial asymmetry is visible."

Since the 'depressor muscle is missing on one side, that corner of the mouth tends to turn upward when crying or showing other emotions.

Obama was at least smart enough to run as a moderate and his record for the most part was one of voting "Present".

Harris has already defined herself as an angry black woman with a record of flip flopping and her performance during the Kavanaugh hearings was a disgrace. It will not play outside of deep blue states.

Trump is going to run on the best economy in 50 years and no wars. I have a hard time seeing any of these dwarves giving him much trouble and Harris is near the bottom of that list.

former architect of Notre Dame Cathedral (13 years). It's in French but
subtitled.A couple of take aways - 800 year old oak would take "a lot of
kindling" to ignite and would burn slowly. The fire started in an area
where there was no work being done. Finally, there are state of the art
sensors and 2 men on guard 24/7 monitoring them. At least the French
press isn't afraid to mention these things. Looks fishy as

True. But also don't underestimate Trump's team especially his campaign manager who has been on the job since last summer running advanced voter targeting. If you ever get a chance to hear Parscarle talk about what he's up to take it. He's very smart.

All these rallies Trump does aren't just to rile up the crowd. They are talking names, registering voters and volunteers, etc.. By the time the Dem field is whittled down from the 30 or so people running to a candidate Trump will have been running for 2 years.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Americans burned a record amount of energy in 2018, with a 10% jump in consumption from booming natural gas helping to lead the way, the U.S. Energy Information Administration says.

Overall consumption of all kinds of fuels rose 4% year on year, the largest such increase in eight years, a report this week from the agency said. Fossil fuels in all accounted for 80% of Americans' energy use.

That's despite increasingly urgent warnings from scientists that humans are running out of time to stave off the harshest effects of climate change by cutting greenhouse gas emissions from consuming coal, oil and natural gas.

Oh, I agree. But the battery blew up. I don't know how hot it got so maybe that's to be expected, but maybe it's not. I'm not blaming Toyota for the initial problem.

We had a good friend--- now, alas, no longer with us --- who spent a couple of decades working for Izvestia in the USSR. He would point out to us the many techniques the Soviet press used that are also seen in our establishment media.

One of them is what he called the round-table of agreement. Heh. When the ruling class had something difficult to address, a particularly tricky lie, you did not have it pronounced by one figure. That would seem authoritative, dictatorial.
What you did was get a collection of 5 or more people to "discuss" the subject and present the line in various forms. It creates the illusion of widespread acceptance of the narrative.

One thing to remembe about 2024 speculation: the state of total insanity in the media is real, yes, but it's also tactical. Donald Trump has no advantage, and has mortal folly, in letting everyone who plotted against him walk free. That guarantees his indictment when he leaves office. After 2020 he has to bleed the Democrats dry, assuming he doesn't (or hasn't) poached a large number of Sanders supporters.

Car interior fires are incredibly hot. The urethane foam in the upholstery burns like old celluloid movie film. I have burned old car seats in my burn barrel.

And once the interior is burned out, the is a write-off anyway. Guaranteed. So, if the battery exploded, so what? car was already a goner. As you would have been, had you still been in there.

I am in no way a Toyota fanboi, or (shudder) a Prius fanboi. But they are do make durable cars, and the Prius does seem to work well for the taxi companies, who have reason to note fuel economy.

The Morning Report - 4/19/19

badgag.jpg

Good morning kids. A blessed Good Friday and ziessen Pesach to one and all. The top story is of course the release of the redacted Mueller Report cum two-year deception as well as the reaction from all quarters. The Democrat-Left-Media complex is in total freakout mode as they a) refuse to believe this President is not guilty in any way, shape or form, b) are convinced that AG William Barr is covering up his guilt and c) thanks to Mueller and his pro-Clinton team's feckless and reckless punting on the obstruction angle, as well as verbiage that not only continues to unfairly smear the President's character but more horribly upends centuries of legal tradition by putting the onus on him to prove he's not a reprobate criminal as opposed to them proving beyond any reasonable doubt that he is. That is utterly inexcusable, but what did you expect from Robert Mueller? He was, is and always will be an agent of the Deep State Leftist cabal and as such, dragged this whole thing out for more than two years in the vain attempt to find something, anything, with which to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump, either by removing him from office or essentially kneecapping his agenda.

The latter is what happened and for sure it affected the outcome of the midterm elections in the GOP losing the House. But circling back, the GOP-e at best was diffident or averse to Trump because it, too, is part and parcel of the anti-American globalist enterprise. I find it extremely hard to believe that turds like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell did not know from the get-go that this entire collusion story was a complete crock. Hell, John McStains himself sent an aide to go fetch the fraudulent Steele dossier from the Brits and then was instrumental in disseminating it back here in DC. They knew. They all knew - Democrat and Republican alike. But still they persisted.

Back here in the real world, the President has been "exonerated." But I put that in quotes because that word implies that Robert Mueller and company were legitimate, impartial arbiters of justice who have nobly executed a fair and just process when the cold, hard truth is that this process was completely illegitimate from the start; they were put there to hang this President if they could, on whatever flimsy excuse they could find or manufacture. And even after ruining the lives of Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort they came up with nothing. Mueller turns my stomach as much as Clinton, Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Priestap, Steele, Halper, Mifsud, Strzok, Page, Ohr, Ohr, Rosenstein and all the other smug, elitist traitors who very nearly pulled off the overthrow of a President and really, by extension, the will of the American people in electing him. And before it gets lost in the sauce, none of this would have happened had Jeff Sessionszzzz not recused himself and then appointed Rosenpenis, who turned around and appointed Mueller with no specific boundaries and carte blanche to do anything he wanted. If there is any justice in this world, all of the aforementioned would be behind bars at Leavenworth for the rest of their lives, or have a date with the hangman for what they tried to do. And what is still going on now in the House of Representatives with such morally bankrupt frauds as Nadler and Schiff.

All things considered, you have to marvel at Donald Trump. The entirety of a feral, criminal bureaucracy and politicians along with a complicit mass propaganda machine was hurled at him non-stop for a period of nearly four years going back to the summer of 2015 when he announced his candidacy, and yet he not only survived, but he thrived. Part of it was because the base and now a growing number of people outside of that base see that he has either kept his word or has done everything within his power to advance the agenda despite the opposition, even from within his own camp. And even despite losing the House (or perhaps as a result of it), the Democrats are in an open internecine war that has exposed who they are and what they believe for all the world to see... and it's not pretty. More on that later.

So notwithstanding my rage against Mueller, semantics aside, the President has been exonerated, but the Dem-Media-Complex will now use Mueller's "insinuendos" on obstruction as well as the mythical crimes not mentioned in the report to advance to yet more persecutions and smearing of him, his allies and supporters among the American people. Bring it on. The more they attack the more Trump fights back twice as hard and the more support he garners. I don't have the links handy but there is polling indicating that a growing number of people across all age and demographic categories are in agreement that this entire thing was indeed a witch hunt to get Trump. And if the Left collectively continues to fuck the innards out of that chicken, 2020 is going to get ugly for them, no matter who they put up to run.

Then there's the media. Tucker Carlson calls their reaction the single most embarrassing thing to happen to the White House press corps in American history, Great One Mark Levin rightly says that their attacks on Trump are really attacks on the American people and R.S. McCain edits his erudition and examination of the embarrassment of American journalism to just three words - "Orange Man Bad!" Switch to any channel or grab any paper and you'll find plenty of cringe-worthy embarrassment to go around, but the icing on the cake has got to be Brian "Commander McBragg" Williams, who was all set to dispatch Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow.

Williams: "My first question, I'm afraid, is going to verge on plain English. Where did the attorney general get off with that characterization this morning, including four mentions that there was no collusion? What document was he reading, compared to the one we're left with?"

Sekulow: "Well, page two of the document says, 'The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election of interference activities.' So it's right from the document itself."

Earlier, Williams had the temerity to refer to the attorney general as "Bagdhad Bill Barr." This from a confirmed liar and fabulist. Brian, you're not a journalist despite being paid millions of dollars to portray one on television. I have some advice for you. Stop talking. Forever.

On to the rest of the news starting with Amnesty and Immigration, and as the migrant hordes continue to jump the border the administration is trying its best to stem the flow as well as the massive fraud being perpetrated in the name of asylum. A previously deported illegal is charged with raping and sex-trafficking a teenager, Rancida Tliban calls for hunger strikes to end ICE, and a two-part series on the health hazard coming across the border.

Dem Scandal Sheet: Two potential huge scandals involving a billion in dark money cash finding its way into Democrat coffers and the looming UkraineGate scandal that could hit the BIdens. In the Joo-Hate subsection, our Rancida feels more Palestinian in Congress than anywhere else (is that a Michael Kors suicide belt or are you happy to see me?), and an exposed Islamist politician responds to the charges.

Civil War 2.0: Seattle sick-o punches a priest when he spots his crucifix.

General Politics: Conrad Black rips into Bernardo Sandersnista, while Tom Styrene is itching to impeach Steny Hoyer is not so sure about that (he knows its a loser before 2020), the openly gay ambassador to Germany Richard Grennell rips Mayor Buttplug for his attacks on VP Pence, "Jello-Brain" Gillibrand hires actual former Soviet propagandists, "Blotto" Beto hates America so much, he wants to rule it, and a look at this electoral college sabotage in the states and how to deal with it.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Aside from the psychotic reaction to the Mueller thing, the press did not appreciate Edelweiss being played at the news conference, Chicago press ignoring black crimes, and shockingly Time names Trump, Bolsonaro and Guaido to their top 100 list.

Guns: The judge who threw out the California magazine ban suddenly reverses himself after getting a talking to by Xavier Becerra. Disgusting.

Abortion: NC governor vetoes anti-infanticide bill.

Foreign Desk: IDF general warning about a Hezbollah invasion from the Galilee, Citgo court ruling could have repercussions for Venezuela, a look at the disaster of the Globalist mass migration plot and Notre Dame is latest of three great conflagrations and what it could mean going forward.

DEE-fense: US Intel community is 99.99% leftist (and see the Ledeen piece about the entirety of the CIA, FBI and DoJ as a nest of foreign spies [as if foreign foes need to infiltrate those places given our homegrown commies]).

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Girl who complained about her madrassa teacher harassing her gets incinerated for her troubles. Paging Bro-Fo Omar to pick up the courtesy jerry can...

Domestic Affairs: Leftist DC housing policy turns out as well as you'd think, and metro areas are depopulating faster and faster. Gee, why is that do you think?

Crime and Punishment: USCG scores big drug haul off the Central and South American coasts and SCOTUS to decide on another violent felony law.

Healthcare: Senator Bill Cassidy as a better health plan (meh, I prefer free markets but let's see what he's got), and "Blotto" is a big fat hypocrite.

Education: Minneapolis public schools dish up the pro-Bro-Fo propaganda to the kiddies while bashing OrangeManBad, Austin schools infect young brains with the tranny psychosis, high school students do the Nuremberg Law 2 Electric Boogaloo, and Florida governor DeSantis with some good news in the sunshine state.

Red Greens: Hack sportswriter delves into nihilism and ludditism.

Hither and Yon: Christian Toto on new Christian movie Breakthrough, on the passing of noted man of G-d James V. Schall, and the Progressive scapegoating of a noted British contemporary scholar.

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.

Yup.
He's guilty because he's been accused.
He's guilty because the investigation was long.
He's guilty because he complained about it on twitter.
He's guilty because he keeps talking about the Mueller report.
He's guilty because he didn't provide Mueller "clear" evidence he did not do what he's accused of, despite there being no clear evidence he did it.
He's guilty because he's icky, so just find one gosh-d@mn crime to get rid of him!!

But the massive war from DeepState against him (the coup, backed by GOPe) stopped all that. MAYBE he really would have started with a pen and phone to start building the wall, using the military.


But instead he was threatened with impeachment if he dared to act like a president. He got no honeymoon ... it was warfare from before he was elected. The DC Cabal was sure they had Hillary to sweep away all their sedition ... and they are still mostly winning (record illegal invasion).

We don't get much luck here in Ulster and we really don't need this dry snatched old harpy spreading her malevolent fortune around the globe.

110 Fake families crossing the border?!
Say it isn't so!

This is why it is so annoying when the Left whines about DHS family separations. Guys, the kids were separated from their families long before they crossed the border --- and your policies encouraged it, and all the abuse the kids have endured to get here.

A walkthrough of 11 points Mueller thought could be obstruction
Posted by: Skip at April 19, 2019 06:02 AM (BbGew)

***
IMO there's only one obstruction claim of any note, and that's Trump's alleged order to McGahn to fire Mueller and Trump's later denial of issuing that order. Bottom line: Mueller wasn't fired and Trump had the power to do it, so it doesn't amount to anything except in liberal reporters' "but for" musings.

But also, Trump apparently and correctly thought Mueller should be removed because of his major conflicts of interest (which will probably come more in focus in the coming months) and THAT is what he talked to McGahn about (Trump said he wanted Rosenstein to handle it).

The end result might have been the same IF Mueller had been removed for conflicts (although he wasn't removed or fired), but being removed (or excused) for unresolvable conflicts is NOT the same thing as being fired. If McGahn misunderstood what Trump wanted, that is possible, but Trump's statement that he did not tell McGahn to fire Mueller seems truthful and reasonable and is not perjury or obstruction.

123 So a very cool thing happened to me yesterday and kinda weird and freaky also.

My niece and a cousin of mine took a 23 and Me test a while ago, separately. And just recently, someone tracked down my niece to email her and say, 'Hey, I think we may be related'.

They compared notes with her thinking he's just some distant cousin.

First cousins.

I have a sister I never knew about from when my dad was young and dumb and full of. . . You know the rest.

I got to met her yesterday. She happened to be on vacation near me so I drove 5 hours to meet her for lunch and hung out with her for the afternoon.

As scary as some of the applications of 23 and Me can be, this was a cool byproduct of what happened.

I have a brand new sister.

130 good article on our foreign spies ... being the MSM (and others). Comey, Brennan ... how many others were good little commies in college? The "commies" recruit them when young ... Hillary was flipped from Goldwater girl ... to whatever she is now ... grifter, but also Reset with Russia, help for Iran, take down of compliant Qaddafi ... friend of Merkel ... in short ... servant to the Globalists.

Bannon has some good ideas, but he thought Mueller was a good man, and Bannon was a Goldman Sachs guy. Can't quite pin down his world view or agenda, at this point. But he hangs out with oligarchs, and those guys like their money and power.

I can't hear "23 and Me" without it reminding me how completely full of shit Glenn Beck is.

When 23 and Me first started, he was sounding the alarms and railing against it.

Now he takes their money and shills for them as his sponsor.

Legal Insurrection has a 10 minute clip of her giving the press holy hell. And predictably, her chubby tubby hubby calls for Trump to be removed from office yet again.

I hear that she's 'a good Catholic', which means no divorce ever I guess, but she really needs to dump that pile of grease before he clogs her drains.
