39 I always wonder what reference materials the painter used to create these works. He could have made sketches of the girl in that pose but the dog would have been problematic. Yet he perfectly captured the mutt's expression. Genius.

Posted by: kallisto at May 21, 2019 09:40 AM (+RF8x)

40 I really like this painting on two levels.

Technically I like the way the artist captures the look of the old, dark wood, suggests detail in the carpet, captures the skin tones of the little girl, and makes the proportions right.

The other level is the scene is sweet and adorable. I can always use adorable.

We had a husky from a pup. He was 3 or 4 and used to jump on the bed (captains bed with drawers in the base). I'm not a fan of dogs on the furniture, and he knew that. He would sleep at the base of the bed until he knew we were asleep and would jump up and sleep at the foot of the bed.

Shortly after my wife got pregnant, he stopped jumping on the bed. Never did it again.

No, but I bet it has to do with some sort of illegal spying. The spying was going on well before the official start date of late July.

I'm waiting for Trump to just come out and tell America the truth.

"The Democrats have sold America out to everyone else. They are importing illegals hand over foot to replace your vote. They're siding with China. They've colluded with Russia. They haven't accepted the results of the 2016 election and have been openly staging a coup since January, 2017. They're against free speech, gun ownership and free and fair elections. You have a decision to make, folks. Me in 2020 or open borders, high taxes, a lot of foreign invaders making your lives unsafe."

Good morning kids. Tuesday's here so here we go.

The President has instructed former White House counsel Don McGahn to ignore a House subpoena while an Obama-appointed hack-in-black has decreed that the President must turn over his financial records so that the Democrats can sift through them to manufacture evidence for an impeachment proceeding.

In the real world, two essays ask two key questions as to the origins of the Steele Dossier as well as why did Obama allow Comey to brief Trump about the Russky prostitute fable? The short answers are that a) considering the key players involved were all from or associated with the British intel community, it appears that John Brennan intentionally skirted American proscriptions on CIA spying of citizens by hiring the Brits to do the spying for him and that b) Comey briefed Trump as a pretext for giving the dossier a veneer of legitimacy for the press to run with, since by itself, even they were dubious/skeptical of its veracity. But read the links as you'll want to get every last drop of information. Lastly, Justin Amash's brazen hatred and stupidity got him more than he bargained for; the love and admiration of his fellow "Palestinian" from Dearbornistan and a primary challenger. At this point, I don't care if it's the illegitimate love child of Todd Akin and Christine O'Donnell - whoever it is gets my full-throated endorsement.

To the border where Trump's new pick to head ICE said some rather disparaging things about the President early on in 2017, and yet he is seemingly fully on board as of now with the President's immigration agenda and the border wall. Elsewhere, a legitimate asylum-seeker backs Trump's policies 100%, the LA Times is reporting that pregnant illegals are being turned back, presumably as a way to smear him and us as cruel, heartless, racists raping the Emma Lazarus Poem what doubles as proof of open borders, and lastly, despite what the national Leftist leadership and candidates will tell you, the reality of releasing hordes of border jumpers into the interior of the nation is not appreciated by either side of the divide. All politics indeed is local.

Dem Scandal Sheet and Joo-Hatred: A headline likely to be buried in the media, Rancida Tliban's Holocaust comments as propaganda and a Dem Virginia lawmaker has ties to anti-Semitic groups. Along with the Democrat Party itself. And moving on to Civil War 2.0, PA Democrat thug, the bearded clam known as Brian Sims apologizes... for not ripping the arms off the old lady and beating the two teenybopper pro-life kids to death with them.

Politics: President Trump held another rip-roaring rally yesterday, this time in PA where a few people passed out from the heat while enjoying the President boosting America and ripping the Dems, PDT slams Bernie's candidacy and record, Dem 2020 hopefuls turn to John Brennan of all people for Iran advice, Fauxca-Has-Been is now Ruthless Westheimer, Ed Markey faces a primary challenger, and a few good essays on Trump winning on race, the Dems' descent into madness and Daniel Greenfield on the Left running on nothing but conspiracies.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Twitter silences critics of Al Jazeera's Holocaust deniers, coordinated anti-Trump campaign uncovered at Instagram, Josh Hawley looks to cut off Big Brother Tech's information gathering on all of us, Chris Wallace let Mayor Buttplug smear his own network and colleagues and said nothing, and fat fool Brian Stetler attempts to rip Mark Levin's latest work and winds up proving the very premise of the book. Nice work, lumpy.

Abortion: Joe Bidet was for the Hyde Amendment before he was against it, Mittelschmerz Romney openly blasts Alabama baby protection law; funny, I don't recall hearing a peep out of him when NY and VA gave standing ovations to their infanticide laws, and G0d bless Alabama indeed. Hey, you think this is not smart politically or it will enrage the mythical independents/undecideds? What about the aforementioned baby-killers? Sorry. They started it, and we will finish it. It's a winning issue.

Foreign Affairs: Farsicle Farsi opens pie-hole and demands respect or something, US intel warning on Iran surprise attacks in the Gulf (considering the legacy of Clapper and Brennan, as well as the run-up to Gulf War 2, I am wary), despite Trump's bluster, his words about our military-industrial complex indicate a more cautious approach, Huawei exec under house arrest, or mansion arrest, two more essays on the Aussie election win for conservatives, Switzerland goes to grab guns and will live to regret it, Italy's PM Salvini is dead right, and Qatar affirms its status as a terrorist lover.

Speaking of terrorism, sad trombone for Hezbollah as Trump's cutting their money sources off has forced them to make cutbacks (M-80s < Semtex), and a French shrink confirms the myth of the mentally ill jihadist.

Domestic News: Elderly, disabled USGS employee harassed at work for supporting the President, that California housing edict that would ban zoning for single family homes is now on hold until after 2020 (must be polling horribly, even there), on New York's own insane zoning laws and the shit-holes they engender, and NY State's madness on energy policy.

The Economy: Three on the China-US Trade Battle where Huawei is hit with export controls (long overdue we stop giving away our high tech secrets to an imperialist enemy), economist is dead right on Trump reordering the globalist madness and making America predominant again, and the Chi-Coms are threatening an embargo of rare earth metals, which would redound badly on them. Also, Philly's crazy tax on soda goes totally flat and Kamala-Toe seeks to punish corporations over the myth of a gender pay gap. All the evidence shows it's virtually non-existent but never let a talking point go to waste.

Healthcare: Nightmare situation at Houston hospital, measles is breaking out all over and Gavin Newsom's healthcare for illegal aliens as legal citizens suffer.

Education: LA Mayor Garcetti spews some sort of open borders drivel at a graduation ceremony.

Red Greens: Candidate with no shot in hell Michael Bennett thinks topping out the Green New Luddite Plunge at $10 Trillion will make him electable.

Real Science: India and China are serious about mooning a man on the land.

Hither and Yon: Confirmed - Donald Trump has made America less racist, a gaming journalist goes SJW, Christian Toto calls for a new Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the "woke" generation, and finally the tongue-in-cheek confessions of a former white supremacist.

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.

If it were somehow determined that Obama's publicly accepted status as a "natural born US citizen" were fraudulent, thus his Presidency was illegitimate, I wonder if anyone would have the 'nads to go the full distance and say that any appointements he made are illegitimate, too.

Sadly, this may be the only way to properly clean house. And even if the evidence was served up on a silver platter, too many would allow it to pass.

Seems like both Comey (by accepting the "mission") and Clapper (by releasing information subject to Executive Privilege)are guilty of dereliction of duty at the very least/ That's a jury I'd like to be on!

She led not only the Iran deal, but the N Korea nuke deal for Bill Clinton. The best advice should be to do the OPPOSITE of whatever Wendy Sherman would. She's a Jamie Gorelick mini-me (having a hand in DC failures).

I suppose it would go without saying that Brennan and Sherman are likely on Iran's payroll?

Brennan knew even he could not legally use the CIA to spy on an American citizen. So he hired a willing MI-6 to do the dirty work for him.

And when even the media wouldn't run with the dossier, Comey telling Trump about it made it a news item that they could then include because Comey briefing Trump made it, or gave it a veneer, of legitimacy.

44 Attorney General William Barr said that his handling of the Mueller report and its aftermath is rooted in a desire to defend the power of the executive branch rather than personal support for President Trump.
"I felt the rules were being changed to hurt Trump, and I thought it was damaging for the presidency over the long haul," Barr told The Wall Street Journal in El Salvador in an interview published Monday, where he traveled last week to boost support for Trump's policies toward the violent street gang MS-13.

75 So. . . the mask slipped off and revealed this:

Want to Dismantle Capitalism? Abolish the Family

Feminist theorist Sophie Lewis's new book looks at how rethinking pregnancy and the idea of family as forms of labor is central to emancipatory politics. . .

It's a central idea to feminism anyway, that mothers aren't natural entities; they're making choices to look after this other person. It's not some sort of mechanical, automatic process; it's a practice of grounding sociality.

Mothers nurture, but they also kill and abuse their wards. That's why it's so valuable to denaturalize the mother-child bond. To do anything otherwise is to devalue that work. That's the horizon that I think opens up the space for a revolutionary politics.

94 The statue of Liberty was meant to symbolize the freedom that Americans had won by throwing off the shackles of tyranny in the Revolutionary War (a war the French helped us win). The lamp Liberty holds was meant to show the people of other nations the way -- not the way to come to the U.S. and mooch off Americans (i.e. the Emma Lazarus way), but the way for them to throw off tyranny in their own lands, by following the example of what Americans had done, and fighting for their own freedom.

Emma Lazarus' poem is a ludicrous piece of blather that completely misinterprets the meaning of the statue of Liberty, and never should have been placed anywhere near it.

"(Daenerys) grows more powerful, and more sure that she is good and right. She believes her destiny is to build a better world for everyone. If you believed that, if you truly believed it, wouldn't you kill whoever stood between you and paradise?

"The world we need won't be built by men loyal to the world we have. It's not easy to see something that's never been before. A good world."

"How do you know it will be good?"

"Because I know what is good," Daenerys affirms.

into the legitimacy of congress' request, so long as it appears legit on

The AGW wave crashed spectacularly in Australia, and remember, the international left spent the last 6 years putting every resource they had into finding a nation where they could use the Climate Scare to take over the political landscape completely. Of course, as soon as that was done the Marxist control of all economic life would kick in, since that is really what it is all about.

And they Lost! Amazingly, with 6 years of planning and all the hype in the world, they lost! They even sent a former UN High Commissioner to Australia to personally campaign against Conservative candidates (on account of they were gonna destroy the Earth) - and they Lost!!!

Hard to think of a good military analogy - perhaps Agincourt. Hopelessly outnumbered, poor and despised, with all of the wealthy nobility arrayed against them - a total and magnificent victory over an arrogant class that couldn't understand how it happened, even after it did!

Have you ever noticed how often the green left invokes World War II as their model for the kind of effort they want to put into fighting 'Climate Change?' Let's think back on World War II a minute:
1. The Government took control of all economic assets.
2. Basic freedoms were suspended and the power of the Central Government vastly expanded.
3. The Government put people in prison (or camps) if they were designated a threat to the effort.

I can see why the left likes that model.

A big part of the reason for that is that consultants keep producing polls which show them that Climate Change is a winning issue, that they can take power that way.

But then 54 polls in a row said that the Left was going to win the Australia election easily. Not one single poll got the actual result right, it was unthinkable.

If they had any intelligence at all (but of course they don't) the candidates who are crafting their policies based on consultant's polls would be asking themselves, "what if all of my information is catastrophically, and I am moving in the opposite direction of where I need to be going?"

But that's like expecting a radical Muslim to wonder, "What if Allah really DOESN"T want me to kill all these apostate infidels?"

240 Military Industrial Complex is really just ex-military and current military officers who are on the payroll of certain companies. Sometimes the money is direct, sometimes indirect via thinktanks, academic posts, TV gigs, future lobby jobs, etc. Go to the Pentagon and you can throw a rock and hit one.

Its not about the war part so much that annoys me. What annoys me is the incredible waste, stupid military strategies, and mission objectives they come up with. In WWII, the mission objectives were to destroy the enemy and force them to accept our moral view of the world.


Now it is more about learning about other cultures, doing teamwork exercises with our allies, while we do lots of expensive national infrastructure projects for the "conquered country". It is about the world force for good, not doing whatever is in America's best interest.

Notice how a lot of the military industrial complex was for the Obama Iran Deal. Why? Boeing was hot for it along with a few others. It was not in America's best interests, but these officers loved it because they put their loyalty to Boeing and their future employers ahead of the country.

So Trump is wrong about the Military Industrial Complex always wanting war, they want $. You notice we have not exactly been as efficient winning wars since 1945 and there is a reason for that.

Have you ever noticed how often the green left invokes World War II as their model for the kind of effort they want to put into fighting 'Climate Change?' Let's think back on World War II a minute:
1. The Government took control of all economic assets.
2. Basic freedoms were suspended and the power of the Central Government vastly expanded.
3. The Government put people in prison (or camps) if they were designated a threat to the effort.

I can see why the left likes that model.

Congressional leaders who have openly announced their intentions to "prosecute" "investigate" and "impeach" the President based on whatever they hope they can dig up, not so much.

And its hard not to be made "racist" when observing foreign born individuals who come to this country to achieve positions of power e.g. Federal Court Judge and head of Google, who clearly have no freaking sense of American Constitutional law or basic American values like free speech, limited government.

I actually think they are trying to get the right numbers, and they can't. That's actually worse for them - if they were biased, then it would just be a matter of removing the bias and the numbers could be believable; but if the problem is that the underlying mathematical and statistical assumptions that polling depends on are flat out wrong, then polling will never be anything more than throwing darts at a wall and pretending you're a prophet.

Gets around 90 percent of eligible voters, but if you look at the actual numbers of votes cast vis a vis the vote totals for each candidate, there's a leeeetle problem - namely, that seemingly lots 'o folks write in (that's legit) something else.

305 I actually think they are trying to get the right numbers, and they can't. That's actually worse for them - if they were biased, then it would just be a matter of removing the bias and the numbers could be believable; but if the problem is that the underlying mathematical and statistical assumptions that polling depends on are flat out wrong, then polling will never be anything more than throwing darts at a wall and pretending you're a prophet.

I've come to believe that all polling is Junk Science, which is why it can be manipulated so easily.

313 There are internal polls which are normally remarkably focused on either an issue, demographic or region. All others are just foppery of what they want to hear. The death of local newspapers is probably the reason they get stuff so wrong. With every town and city having a newspaper, you had plenty of locally 'in the know' people who could toss fapping polls out on their ear. Today you have maybe five urban newspapers that probably know their blue shit hole very well but have no clue what the other 80% of America is thinking.

314 But then 54 polls in a row said that the Left was
going to win the Australia election easily. Not one single poll got the
actual result right, it was unthinkable.



If they had any intelligence at all (but of course they don't) the
candidates who are crafting their policies based on consultant's polls
would be asking themselves, "what if all of my information is
catastrophically, and I am moving in the opposite direction of where I
need to be going?"



But that's like expecting a radical Muslim to wonder, "What if Allah
really DOESN"T want me to kill all these apostate infidels?"



Posted by: Tom Servo at May 21, 2019 08:59 AM

Same thing happened here after Trump won. Pollsters refused to rethink what they were doing or how they were doing it. Not talking about National polls here, but about State polls, especially swing State polling.

They had clinton walking away with PA, FL, MI and WI. Every single poll before the election in those States got it wrong. And no one seems to care, at least no one in the polling business.


That should tell us something about the trustworthiness of polls in the US.

I'm hoping they do. Landslide Trump is hoping for this as well.

I was over at a friends house this weekend. Thirty year veteran of the State Department with his friend 'Dano' the former NYC DJ and family there. I was asked who would win the 2020 election and I told them Trump by a 43-44 State Landslide. Jeebus, they all went into shock. They still do not understand that their youthful reactionary RnR beliefs are now orthodoxy and the Americans don't like it. The irony of this was listening to Dano the angry man talk about conspiracies. He doesn't understand that his whole career was to proselytize via RnR and now the kids listen to Rap and Disco Shit Hot Chick songs. I felt like I had entered Hell and realized I could not bring any of the back to the living. So I changed the subject and had a beer.

No one thing is strong enough to become a cultural touchstone anymore.

Marvel as a whole is, but none of the individual characters are.

A long running TV show like Game of Thrones can get close, but that's because it's in the forefront of the cultural consciousness for years (much like a series of Marvel movies).

The days of Star Wars coming on the scene and deeply affecting the culture is gone. We can't wait 3 more years for the next big thing. There's another big thing coming out in theaters next week, on HBO the week after that, and Twitter has declared them all problematic before the end of the month.

And Titanic is definitely a cultural touchstone still.

BUT when it came to utilizing some of the (illegally obtained) spy data, they had to be more careful. So they pretended the US was not spying, it was the Brits (but actually at Brennan's, or whoever's, request) And if it went to trial, they could not use the illegal data, so they did "parallel reconstruction" of what they already had (illegally) found.


Perkins/Fusion/etc. all seem part of the scam, with a particular group of anti-American globalists getting quite rich off the whole scam ... protection racket for the oligarchs (protection FROM the likes of Trump, FROM we the people having our Republic stolen).

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Should we call it ‘Polar Vortex baby?’ It was a long, cold winter in Wisconsin and I have a cute husband,” “What can I do?” Rachel-Campos Duffy


Quote II

I understand the problems in incarcerating large numbers of people. I understand the politics and how easy it is to make a social issue out of this if we hold them. But what I don't understand is why the laws apply to citizens but non-citizens especially illegal aliens don't have to face consequences of breaking our laws. I don't understand why it is I have to fill out an I-9 to get a job and only certain state or federal ID is satisfactory and illegals have zero requirements in fact the government goes out of their way to make it easier for them. I don't understand why the TSA can make me take my clothes off and feel me and my family up at the airport but 100,000 non-citizens from god knows where can cross our border freely, get a hot meal, an airplane ride to U.S. cities and a briefing on how to apply for welfare and housing. WTF is wrong with my government??? Commenter from Maggiesfarm


Quote III

It’s to a point where it’s almost embarrassing. But I love the PGA, and I’m a past champion. There’s no way I could walk it. But I feel like I belong to play since I’m a past champion, and I just feel obligated. I really want to play. Trust me, if I could walk, I would walk,” John Daly


Quote IV

“Sports betting without question has provided a major boost to the local economy, and we believe this excitement will translate into increased revenue and tourism throughout the summer,” Caesars Entertainment regional president Kevin Ortzman


Quote V

I'm a definite, determined, and devoted pro-choice fundamental Baptist! I believe that a woman has a right, responsibility, and requirement to choose: a choice to keep her knees together or rear a child. That personal, practical, and profound choice would solve most of the abortion problems. Don Boys

We should have picked our own cotton rayon.

Oh, my word! Angry and offended about the racial undertones of a teacher planting cotton?!?

I grew up in Northwest Florida, the Panhandle. The area where I lived and went to school had quite a few cotton farms. In fact, many of my ancestors on my dad's side were sharecroppers in lower Alabama, picking cotton in the fields for a subsistent wage. While I knew that slaves had picked cotton, I never thought of picking cotton as an activity exclusively (or even mostly) associated with slavery. Neither did my teachers.


So that dude Mike selling the Giza cotton sheets is a racist?

Sexual Politics? I'm so glad I'm 29, when men were men and women were women.

OK, let’s talk about “no trans” dating preferences, a recent fixation in sexual politics that often ends up in transphobic and abusive conversations.

Take, for example, a recent video by LGBTQ commentators Arielle Scarcella and Blaire White, which argued that lesbians are not transphobic if they are only attracted to cisgender women.

Trans feminists and YouTube personalities, such as Riley J. Dennis and Contrapoints, have been arguing for some time that a lack of sexual attraction to trans folks is, to some degree, shaped by societal prejudices and stereotypes. As a PhD student in sociology and a trans feminist, I am concerned about how the debate has misrepresented trans critics and led to attacks on trans feminists and activists.

Why would we like to advance voting in elections via the internet?

The US Department of Justice claims that Mr Golestan "fraudulently" won control of the net addresses by using many different shell companies. It alleges that he created websites for fake companies and invented the names of the people who purportedly ran them as part of his scheme. Mr [Amir] Golestan was charged with 20 counts of wire fraud in a US court this week. He has yet to respond to a BBC request for comment. The net addresses were handed over to Mr Golestan by the American Registry of Internet Numbers (Arin) - one of several regional administrators that dole out the few remaining addresses. It is claimed they were then resold allowing him to cash in.

The tattoo inks, made by different manufacturers, are contaminated with microorganisms that can lead to serious injuries and can increase the risk of infection. This since the skin barrier is broken during any procedure.

The DNA results reveal what we thought all along. Illegal immigrant kids are being used as pawns in the game of illegal immigration.


A DHS pilot program using rapid DNA testing at the border has found that nearly a third of Adults bringing kids across the border weren’t biologically related to the children in their custody. We’re not talking about step-parents, adoptive parents, etc., it is all about kids being used as a tool to get across the border.

Per the Washington Examiner, an ICE official told them, “There’s been some concern about, ‘Are they stepfathers or adopted fathers?'” the official said. “Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members.”

Even our neighbors to the north have Genius Award Winners.

Jessie Dean Kowalchuk has been transported back to Kamloops from Edmonton to face a judge for three charges of breach of probation stemming from three separate files in 2015.

Last December, Kowalchuk saw his photo being circulated by Kamloops media outlet CFJC Today as part of a weekly Most Wanted segment, said Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.

He then sent a direct message on Facebook to CFJC Today.

"News flash morons: I'm in Edmonton and not coming back," said Kowalchuk in part of his message, which was given to CBC by the RCMP.

28 God, how I hate that song, I got You Babe..
Once a month, a bunch of us old band mates gather to support an old friend who runs karaoke at the American Legion..
It draws a nice crowd and I'm sure the local does well on the bar tab those nights..
But.. the amateurs (I'm a professional singer whose early married life only made the rent with my gig money in addition to my day job salary) seem to gravitate to I Got You Babe in incredible numbers with incredibly bad duos of singers!
It's still a fun night out.. but we groan when that song comes on!

46 A lame remake of "I Got You Babe" is used on a commercial in heavy rotation here, and it is awful.

89 Hey everybody.

I've been reading a series at the music site Stereogum called The Number Ones, where a writer is reviewing every Billboard #1 song from 1958 to the present. 1 is the worst, 10 is the best.

The writer, Tom Breihan, just gave a 1 to Ray Steven's hit from 1974, The Streak. I gotta say, I agree with Tom. But then 1974 seems to have borne a bumper crop of not-so-great tunes...

I think everyone, especially musicians have that *one* song that they can't stand.

A steel guitar player friend absolutely loathes "Sweet Home Alabama".

For me, it's "Love Shack".

That would be a toss-up between the "ooga-chucka" version of "Hooked on a Feeling" and "Little Drummer Boy".

Oddly enough, there is an alternate version of "Hooked on a Feeling", sans ooga-chucka, that is an OK pop song. And there is an instrumental version of Drummer Boy that is quite acceptable.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the statement this past week by (some lefty woman but there are so many I can't keep 'em straight) that men should shut up about abortion until they all have had vasectomies a straight up admission that abortion is viewed by the Left as merely a form of birth control?

My ex-wife's name is Julie. She was absolutely furious when her first ex-husband started dating a chick named Lisa. I thought it was hilarious.

He and I wound up being pretty good friends.

200 I have one friend (bass player) that will walk out of the venue if "Mustang Sally" is played.

I played at a club about 15 years ago that had a "No Mustang Sally" sign next to the stage. If you started to play it, the owner would run out from behind the bar and turn off the PA. She was fast, too. Usually got it shut off before the vocals come in.

Was originally written and performed by Simon & Garfunkel, but it's less than 2 minutes long.

Then a group called Harpers Bizarre stretched it out, covered it and it became a hit.

I didn't think he was going to make it. During the extended guitar solo he walked back and was leaning against an amp, hunched over. He managed to finish the set.

Well, I plowed up (cutting harrow) up a little garden spot, about 1 - 2 acres in the top terrace behind the house. It's been a while, and the smell of plowed dirt stirred me, and I got the fever to plow.

20 years ago, with two tractors, we'd start early in the morning, and by the time the sun went down, we'd have plowed 60 acres or better.

My 8700 was bucking. It wanted to run. The governor open up, the black smoke bellowed, and she wanted to roll. And I just had that dinky little spot to do.

And after all that rain we had, it's starting to get dry now.

499 The degeneration of Portland continues:

A Multnomah County jury acquitted a 33-year-old woman of charges that she assaulted a TV news cameraman during a protest last summer outside the Southwest Portland offices of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Jurors found Danialle Inez James not guilty of the charges of fourth-degree assault and harassment of KATU cameraman Carter Maynard. Prosecutors contended that James slammed a wooden gate into the back of Maynard's head on June 28 and that she appeared to be motivated by her hostility toward the media.

513 Oh FFS... I just found out late today that a person who works with a COUSIN OF MINE is taking aim at reshaping HIS office in their psychotically ambitious image using "diversity" and official accusations of insensitivity as their weapon.

This somehow doesn't feel like a new story. As usual it seems in these cases, the person doing the accusing is both mixed race and a vicious racist, not just toward whites but blacks as well, and is completely inappropriate even as recently as the same day they lodged their complaint... and now wants to cry wolf about everyone else. It seems they may be using this as a shield against another valid complaint against them that has nothing to do with race but rather their work.

And they have named MY COUSIN as one of the perpetrators. MY COUSIN who in their entire career has never even had a whiff of such an acccusation... has not yet found out what the complaint actually is, just that HE was specifically named. HE was having a great day and is now royally fucking pissed.

We should have picked our own cotton. Failure to do so has cost us, by diversion of limited resources and other problems:

Our freedom
Healthcare that works
Moon colonies
Mars landings
Belt mining
Fusion power
An early end to the Vietnam war
A reasonably honest voting process
Safe schools and neighborhoods
A manageable drug problem
A manageable abortion problem
A society based on growth and expectation

Need I go on? The consequences of slavery, the problem of ex-slave (social/economic) Untermensch, has destroyed that Shining House on the Hill.

It's not skin melanin it's social/economic social norms and reinforcement of optimal/damaged DNA, and outright victimization by power hungry politicians and media whores who use them as a tool, weapon and rent-a-mob. As a group, 150 years of awful living conditions and worse choices has produced a permanent under class.

And it has cost us EVERYTHING.

The chorus of life goes on, BRA, la la halley life goes on, had us giggling at the word BRA which is emphasized. The giggling led to an inability to get through the song to total anarchy. Yelling out BRA let all us little savages turn into hooting monkeys. The teachers tried substituting a word for BRA but that didn't stop it. They gave up in defeat and dropped the song.

606 BB, it has a French Horn or something.

Pretty sure it has a smallish orchestra in it. That was the first song that popped into my head when I heard "oboe part." Not an instrument you normally associate with rock music.

My favorite musical era was between '65 and '75. Lots and lots of good stuff got made during that time. Brand new genres like classical rock (based on classical music, later known as "progressive rock"), psychedelia ("acid rock"), the British blues invasion, the Beatles and the Stones, an awful lot was going on all at once during that time.

It's a terrible recording for some reason I forget.

But, that LP has some incredible guitar work on it.
There's a story about the Solo on Locomotive Breath being cut while Jimmy Page was in the control room. (Zep was concurrently recording for Houses of the Holy).
When Barre finished and asked if he should do another take, Page told the Engineer to tell Barre he didn't need to.

I enjoyed The Eagles from the start (Take It Easy). I bought one cassette (for the car) I liked, the 'On the Border' one. It has some bubblegum angst songs which I loathe straight into the pits of Hell. But it also has 'Already Gone', one of their underrated songs (at least by my unscientific viewing of their popular songs). Saw them in concert in '75 on that album's tour, with a still-country -- and still good looking -- Linda Ronstadt opening.

I dunno about Dylan. Maybe cumulative album sales over 50-60 years, but he never had a monster hit album on the scale of "Dark Side of the Moon" or even "Frampton Comes Alive" for that matter.

I don't think he ever had a #1 single. "Like a Rolling Stone" topped out at #2, while the Beatles' "Help!" stubbornly held the #1 spot.

I remember seeing a website that showed the week-by-week movements of the top 20 singles since the 1950s, but I didn't save it. It was interesting to look at.

It was then that we realized it was all a bunch of shirtless sweaty dudes running in circles bouncing off one another. Not a female in sight.

One of the most hauntingly beautiful songs ever recorded. Richard Thompson on lead guitar.

She wrote that song when she was SIXTEEN. She recorded it first with the Strawbs, but the Fairport version is an absolute masterpiece.

Keith Relf and Jim McCarty were the founding members of Renaissance, after their Yardbirds days.

They were only there for the first album, though. By the time of the "classic" Renaissance lineup, the band was: vocals, piano, bass guitar (playing lead), acoustic guitar (playing rhythm), drums... and an entire symphony orchestra.

Oh yes. Renaissance is the most underrated prog rock band ever. I read that when they came to the US, they were only popular in the NYC and Philly areas, but never caught on in the rest of the country.

872 I understand the problems in incarcerating large numbers of people. I understand the politics and how easy it is to make a social issue out of this if we hold them. But what I don't understand is why the laws apply to citizens but non-citizens especially illegal aliens don't have to face consequences of breaking our laws. I don't understand why it is I have to fill out an I-9 to get a job and only certain state or federal ID is satisfactory and illegals have zero requirements in fact the government goes out of their way to make it easier for them. I don't understand why the TSA can make me take my clothes off and feel me and my family up at the airport but 100,000 non-citizens from god knows where can cross our border freely, get a hot meal, an airplane ride to U.S. cities and a briefing on how to apply for welfare and housing.

875 Daly, who got a disability exemption to be able to use a golf cart during the tournament at Bethpage Black, ended up averaging about a cigarette per hole on the lengthy course.

Good for Daly! Golf and cigarettes were made for each other. There's little else better than playing a round of golf while smoking. It's heaven.

The nicotine boost didn't help his game any as the 53-year-old finished with a 5-over 75 on Thursday.

That wasn't too bad. The field was averaging something like 2 or 3 over. It was a very tough course. Maybe if the field had been smoking cigarettes they would have averaged 1 over?

Well, Slim Pickens was on Mannix tonight. Bad guy, of course. Took Mannix for a little helicopter ride, Slim saying, "This is whar you get off, son. I'm afraid you're gonna have a mighty nasty little accident."

Mannix knocks the gun out of his hand and jumps out -- it was hovering a few feet off the ground. Slim was gonna shoot him and throw him out.

Then we have a helicopter chasing Mannix who is in on foot. Mannix has experience running from helicopters.

He picks up a rock and does something close to a Rambo. He takes out the tail rotor with the rock, perfect throw, and round and round she spins, crashing in a fireball.

Thus ended Slim.

885 So here is my quandary.

I've been dating a real 29 year old for a about 6 months now and she is very sweet. She is highly attractive and very cool. In fact, I'm not quite sure what she sees in my considerably older 29 year old self. My only issue, such as there is one, is that much of what I talk about with her goes over her head, which is a bit distressing because as you know from reading any of my banal comments here, I'm not exactly a rocket surgeon myself.

But tonight, out of blue, I was sitting on a barstool and up pops a much closer to my 29 years old female that I have talked with on a couple of occasions.

She is very attractive in her own right, but the thing is every time I talk with her, we talk so freely for hours that I don't even realize where the time goes. She makes me laugh and smile and we have very much the same life circumstances, faith, experiences and every time I talk with her I feel like we are just picking up where our last conversation left off. But I have only talked with her a handful of times over the last year. I have trouble even looking her in the eye because I'm afraid my eyes will betray me and my affinity towards her.

So I really like girl two. I can't get around that. The problem is, girl one is very sweet and good but I don't relate the same way with her. I'm not even sure girl two likes me, I'm not very good at picking up on signs because I've been avoiding relationships for the last 10 or so years because I've been raising Little on my own and have wanted to dedicate my time to her upbringing. So my female companionship has been self-limited to harmless arms-length dating and some occasional fun with party girls from work.

What to do what to do...

I will send pics to the Garden Thread to emphasize the magnitude of standing water around here. The local COE dam is holding all the water to keep the downstream Missouri River from getting worse

The NWS was running out of green tints to describe what was going on here. And we have lots more rain in the forecast.

Spontaneous Springs of Unusual Size, road washouts,streams undercutting the foundations of roads, and miserable cows wandering the soggy ground are what we are dealing with.

The latest example is Judge Amit Mehta, appointed by Obama to the federal bench. His ruling is a complete abrogation of established law and the separation of powers.

Democrats are fishing through the Executive's personal life in a blind political attempt to damage him. There is no premise or cause for the request. It's harassment, not oversight.

Does Judge Dumbass even understand the separation of powers and the constitution? I doubt it, it's more likely he is reading from the Liberal Cult Bible.

1013 My favorite story about Foxnews and Roger Ailes is when the next generation liberal spawn of Murdoch appeared on one of the video monitors and Roger saw him he remarked "tell me that mouth hasn't sucked a few dicks".

Apparently old man Murdoch found out and that's when Ailes started towards the door.

John Wick 3 Opens to $57 Million Domestic/$92 Million World, Dethrones Avengers as Country's Biggest Movie
Also, Open Thread

Sorry for all the entertainment crap today.

The box office has a new king and his name is John Wick. The third installment of the hyper-violent Keanu Reeves franchise has taken the top spot at the North American box office and ended the three-week reign of "Avengers: Endgame."

Studios on Sunday say "John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum" has grossed an estimated $57 million in its opening weekend. Not only did it far exceed expectations, it's a franchise-best that nearly doubled the opening of the second film, which itself doubled the opening of the first film from 2014.

Is it any good, though?

Overall audiences gave the film a rare A+ CinemaScore, indicating that word-of-mouth will be strong in subsequent weekends.

Imma see this soon.

Engame is still making money, of course, pulling in $2.62 billion globally. Box office watchers had wondered if it could dethrone any of the top three (not adjusted for inflation) money makers, Titanic, Avatar, and The Force Awakens. It beat Titanic and beat Avatar domestically, but not globally.

It needs $173 million more in global box office take to pass Avatar, which Forbes says it probably won't do (though it may come close).

It probably has no chance at all of beating The Force Awakens. I think I'm surprised by that. Though the Star Wars brand was a lot bigger in 2015 than it is now.

19 Some friends wanted to go out to see the 2nd John Wick movie, and we hadn't seen the first one, so we tried to watch it. I think I made it halfway through.

We still went with our friends, but I thought the second one was really dumb. Five minutes of conversation, ten minutes of walking and killing. Repeat until runtime full. The body counts had to be in the hundreds. I found myself wondering about the labor situation for hitmen in these locales. Murders must have dropped to near zero for years following, due to the sheer numbers of killers taken out of the workforce.

44 Keanu Reeves is becoming an all-time classic movie icon, based on the number of Iconic Action Characters in his personal resume. Very few actors have EVER notched so many as Keanu has, now with John Wick added to the list. The only actors I can think of who rival him in number of Iconic Characters are Humphrey Bogart, Harrison Ford and Arnold S.

People like James Cagney, Jackie Chan or Chuck Norris basically played the same character over and over -- but Keanu's Iconic heroes are all different.

81 Young Keanu Reeves, not unlike Catherine Deneuve, couldn't act his way out of a paper bag early in his career. Whereas Miss Deneuve eventually grew as an actress, Keanu's producers and directors eventually learned to, er, "accomodate" and worked their way around his, er, "limitations".

Take Azelastine. For real. It's a "second-gneration antihistamine," administered as a nasal spray. By Rx only. It's over-the-counter in Europe, but not here yet. I find it works wayyyy better than normal antihistamines, and no side effects. No no needles. Just spray, takes ten seconds.

Reading a recently published autobiography by Gary Sinise called "Grateful American" -- very enjoyable. He mentions that his inspiration for making a fourth incarnation (previously two cinematic versions, one television) of "Of Mice And Men" was the 1973 film "Scarecrow" with Gene Hackman and Al Pacino.


I'd never heard of it and watched it this past weekend. Not much of a plot, but tremendous acting -- especially from Hackman.

144 I've spent about an hour trying to fix my e-mail problem. Since I installed Linux the other day, I get error messages when I try to set up my existing e-mail accounts. Everything else is working perfectly.

So tonight I called Comcast for help. I got a lady of indeterminate ethnicity who was very friendly and chipper, but was unable to solve my problem. She finally told me to call Apple for help. Yes, I'm using an 8-10 year old Apple computer, but why would Apple be able to help me configure Mozilla Thunderbird on Linux Mint? That makes no sense. I had a sneaking suspicion she was trying to get rid of me.

So I did call them, and after being on hold for 15 minutes I got "your call cannot be completed as dialed".

Then I went to the Linux Mint website and figured I'd have to go to the user forum. I tried to register and after several abortive tries got the message that I had tried too many times for one session and to try again later.

Fine. I've had about enough of this for one night.

152 John Wick has some of the most kick-ass fight scenes that have ever kicked ass but it's never really figured out how to have those fight scenes mean anything.

And Endgame probably lost steam at the box office because it...SPOILER ALERT...killed off or decommissioned most of the Avengers. It's actually pretty damn good but how many times would anyone have gone back to see Return of the Jedi in the theater is Luke, Leia, Lando, and Chewbacca all died heroically in it?

160 Young Keanu Reeves, not unlike Catherine Deneuve, couldn't act his way
out of a paper bag early in his career. Whereas Miss Deneuve eventually
grew as an actress, Keanu's producers and directors eventually learned
to, er, "accomodate" and worked their way around his, er, "limitations".




Having said all that, I still like Keanu Reeves a lot.


I've heard the same thing. I didn't really start paying attention to his films until The Matrix, which is one of my favorite movies ever. He's pretty good at playing Keanu Reeves, but he's a lot better now at picking scripts, IMHO. He's done some pretty good movies here lately in the past 15 years.


And he's supposed to be a really nice dude IRL. Lots of stories about him being nice to people. Plus, he's a bass player. I saw a video of him with Dog Star (the band) on some late night talk show a while back and he never made a big deal about him being in the band. He was almost shy and hardly said anything after the song, which I really liked.

That's the one thing that annoyed me. Baba Yaga is a witch, not the boogeyman. If I remember my Russian fairy tales,

She lives in a house in the forest that stands on four huge chicken feet and constantly turns round and round. Her yard fence is made of human bones with skulls set on top of each fencepost... however, a visitor will always see one that one fencepost is empty, just as a friendly reminder to be on his or her best behavior. If you mess with her, she will kill you and eat you.

She travels in a giant magic mortar and pestle that flies along the ground, and she always carries a broom with her to sweep her tracks away behind her. You can go to her and ask a favor, and maybe she'll help, and maybe she'll kill you. But if she helps, you will owe her...

174 I posted this about JW3 this am:

John Wick was a decent watch.

I faulted JW2 for spending too much time on the world building. The original left a lot to mystery, hinting at the size and shape of the world and it's rules, but leaving a lot to the imagination. Then 2 got bogged down in the details of the world and less with the shooting in the face.

JW3 introduces elements of the world in sparse fashion again. And plenty of face shooting.

Mostly a setup for JW4 though. Some callbacks to The Matrix and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Biggest disappointment: if you are putting Halle Berry in a movie, you do it because she is hot. Ehh, not so much. Character was kind of a throwaway and could have been played by anybody. The dog scenes were cool, but not reliant on Berry.


I will add - I rank it better than JW2, not quite as good as JW1

206 I saw it on Friday. Overall I thought it was worth the ticket price. We learn a little more about Wick's history, a little more about this shadowy guild of killers, introduce a new antagonist, and watch a shitload of bad guys get whacked in increasingly brutal ways. There are some call backs (including one to the Matrix), and if you thought John was fucked at the end of Chapter 2, stand by.

The one thing I can see about this franchise is that they are having to try harder and harder to top the last one. I don't know how much room they have left.

209 There's a great scene where the mobsters send 15 men to Wick's home to kill him before he comes after the mob, and he kills them all.

The cops show up.

Wick just pays them a gold coin to go away. It's very clear they've done this transaction before and they expect to have to ignore dead bodies when they come to Wick's house.

211 garrett is right. The first Matrix got repeat views and spawned cultural memes near-immediately. People were still waiting for Phantom Menace that year so the media was more concentrating on that... until The Matrix got to DVD first. A lot of people bought DVD players specifically to watch Matrix on it (Lucas delayed Phantom Menace's DVD release because reasons).

She travels in a giant magic mortar and pestle that flies along the ground, and she always carries a broom with her to sweep her tracks away behind her. You can go to her and ask a favor, and maybe she'll help, and maybe she'll kill you. But if she helps, you will owe her...

It may have been being used half-ironically. Double-entendre? I dunno.

It can be used to describe "an unmanly, timid, or characterless man", but it's also a female witch, and John Wick is a principled, nigh-magical, male murder machine.

You have to get your prostate checked during a dive physical. For some guys, it's normal. Other guys have told me he reaches around, grabs your dick and pulls on it-- supposedly to check some involuntary reflex or other. Other people in the know all say the same thing: if you put this guy on a witness stand he could give you a 'legitimate' medical reason to do it. But that's not why he does it.

In the 1980s, Dirty Hary ended, but then there was Rambo and Die Hard.

In the 1990s, the Die Hard flicks continued, and the superhero genre started to gain steam.

In the 2000s, the superhero genre REALLY got up to speed.

And today, there's the John Wick series.

I did not change anything in the advanced set-up, just clicked OK

391 I think I'm getting an idea of what the "exculpatory evidence" that Trey Gowdy spoke of is. When going to a FISA court, the FBI is required to present *all* of the evidence they've gathered to the FISA judge, when asking for surveillance. Looks like the FBI forwarded all the negative claims from people like Halper, and intentionally hid the interview with Papadop where he denied the claims. If so, it's not going to be the "smoking gun" we've been hoping for, but it's still a felony charge against whoever did it. (Comey or McCabe)

When meeting someone for the first time in a non-business setting and they have their dog with them, I quickly say "hi" to them, and then hold open my hand to the dog, a couple of feet away, until the dog comes up to me and sniffs or licks my hand. I'll bend my knee to a small dog, too.

Never in decades have I been bit by the dog. And the person thinks positive things about me.

And if I return, even a year later, the dog ALWAYS remembers me and usually wags it's tail.

But that is why I am saying surprising boobs vs expected boobs. Jennifer Connelly hit a run there where you expected the boobs. They were still awesome, but you knew they were coming.

Although for clothed boobage, Career Opportunities is pretty damn fine.

Chick-Fil-A Becomes Nation's Third-Biggest Restaurant Chain

Plucky!

Actually, it's really the second biggest restaurant chain, among actual restaurants -- the #2 restaurant chain is Starbucks, and, you know, I mean, a biscotti and a Nina Simone compilation CD do not a restaurant make.

Wouldn't 7/11 be one of the biggest restaurants if we're counting pastry and coffee?

Anyway, the only legit restaurant ahead of Chick-Fil-A is the mighty McDonald's.

So, here's what Burger King is doing to claw back into relevance.

Over in Europe, leftists are "milkshaking" conservative people, or anyone they disagree with. "Milkshaking" is just throwing a milkshake at an unsuspecting person.

It's not the worst form of assault, but it is assault.

It's getting so common that police have asked restaurants not to sell milkshakes during political events:



So anyway, here's Burger King: Playfully endorsing leftist attacks on normal people.



Then they backtracked from their endorsement of political violence by the hard left:



Then what did you mean, assholes?

I got the context of Burger King's tweet -- following the picture of the store window announcing that police had asked them not to sell milkshakes -- from Tim Pool.

They (used to - I have not been in years since I do not live in US anymore) do the same with their sodas. They have the syrup turned down so low they only have to refill every 4 years when they clean them.

81 Ok, so I missed the open thread below by a minute to post this.

The SC today ruled that the 1868 treaty the US signed with the Crow nation in Wyoming allows them to take unlimited game in the area and the ability to hunt off the reservation in taking this unlimited game.

The case before them was of a member of the Crow tribe in Wyoming, and former game warden for the tribe, who followed a group of bull elk off of the reservation and killed multiples of them. When arrested and charged by the state of Wyoming, he cited this treaty. He lost in the state court, but then prevailed today at the SC where Gorsuch joined the usual weasel leftist judges in this ruling.

This means that the 11 or 12 other tribes involved in this treaty may also now start unlimited taking of game off reservation land, with no limits, no season, no rules , no regs. As opposed to the taxpaying non tribal residents who will not only be regulated, but will probably end up even more restricted in order to compensate for the new found anything goes for Indian tribes as far as hunting is concerned.

SCI had filed a friend of the court brief in the case and in a statement I don't understand, says that the ruling also allows Wyoming to continue to demonstrate a need to regulate game hunting to conserve game. To who, I don't know.

The "shakes" you get at a fast food joint are basically a thinner version of the "frozen custard" squeezed out at a Dairy Queen.

A real milkshake at a diner uses a Hamilton Beach stainless steel cup under the mixer. For some reason that steel cup makes a difference and the taste is worth the wait.

129 There used to be a newsstand/bookstore in Eastown in Grand Rapids called Socrates, sold milkshakes. Like a coffee bar in a bookstore, only it had a big f-off milkshake mixer.

That morning's newspapers from all around the world, chess tables, books, and milkshakes all day every day.

137 Serious question - people I trust universally say that some guy tossing a shake on them will be inviting an ass kicking.

Biggest drawback to a good and proper ass-kicking: your hands may be wet from the milkshake.

But yeah, that deserves a beatdown. And if it happens to a Seasoned Citizen down here, it's an automatic felony. Being 29 has its advantages sometimes. Of course, you'd need to catch the perp first.
Oh, I just thought of something: couldn't you effect a Citizen's Arrest then? I'd sure do it.

One should take a look at the ingredients in a regular McDonalds milkshake. A choc shake not only is 530 Cal. for a small, but contains yummy stuff such as glycerin, mono and diglycerides, corn syrup, caragheenan, guar gum, fruit and vegetable juice for coloring-not joking- and potassium sorbate and salt. And their website warns you it might contain eggs, etc. from the machine if the store also serves Egg Nog shakes
