Bernie Sanders Announces Another Presidential Bid

Not unexpected.

"We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it's time to move that revolution forward," the independent senator told Vermont Public Radio in an interview that will air Tuesday morning.

Below, an amazing flashback.

Bernie Sanders used to claim that capitalists were wrong to use the existence of bread lines in socialist countries against socialism.

Because, you see, in non-socialist countries, there are no bread lines -- but that's only because the rich people just get all the bread, and the poor people just die of starvation.

No really -- he said that. A while ago, but his politics have not changed. Once a Red, always a Red.

While he often says stuff I kind of agree with, (well, I kind of ignore his stuff the past year or so) but he is such an ass and often gets things completely wrong.

243 Because, you see, in non-socialist countries, there are no bread lines -- but that's only because the rich people just get all the bread, and the poor people just die of starvation.

When the Russians first got the chance to get out of the USSR and come here they used to take pictures of themselves by the meat aisles int he supermarkets and send them home.

And that was back when you could get laid by a hot Soviet chick just for a pair of Levis. You could get a couple of blowjobs for a pair of Lee's.

When my wife and I moved to the US we were blown away by the choices in supermarkets. I counted 72 different kinds of spaghetti sauce of the same brand. In Europe, we had a choice of FOUR.

In industry I had a Russian subordinate who said the first time he and his wife went to a supermarket here, they turned around and left, literally overwhelmed by the myriad choices.

The Soviet Union used to lead the world in jokes about waiting in line.

One of my favorite SOviet jokes was the three doctors talking about the most complex operation. The AMerican doctor said it was brain surgery, the German doctor said it was some quadruple transplant and the SOviet doctor said it was a tonsillectomy. He said the tonsillectomy was complicated because they had to take the tonsils out through the anus.

"Why do you have to go through the anus to get the tonsils?"

"Because, in Soviet Russia, no one opens their mouth!"

Lines...

There's an apocryphal story about back in the bad old days of the Cold War, where a Western correspondent decided to stand outside a random door on the street in Moscow. Immediately, Moscovites began to queue up behind him, because they knew that getting in line NOW was the only way to get their hands on whatever goods he was waiting on. Not that they had any idea what those goods were.

Once the line got to be about a block long, he left. The Moscovites stayed in line. I've heard variants of that story where the line was still there a week later, but with different people who jumped in, taking a chance that they'd get the chance to buy something decent, for once.

Turns out she had finally been allowed to leave East Germany for the West. (The Wall wasn't down yet buy immigration had opened up.)
She had been there only a week and had never seen so much meat in one place before.

He said he basically had a existential fugue for a bit, because they brought OJ, coffee, and milk to him for his breakfast.

He said he was staggered that such a thing was even possible, and then he felt guilty, because certainly the Americans must be starving people somewhere to afford this kind of largesse for visiting musicians.

The last time he had seen his father was when he was busted by Securitate for poaching a fish to feed them.

Justice4Jussie: TMZ Reports Smollet's Role on "Empire" Has Been Slashed

Thank goodness! This poor man needs to recover after being brutally attacked by red-hat wearing MAGA White Devils.

Production sources tell TMZ ... Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode -- which is being shot now -- but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86'd.

As for the remaining 4 scenes ... we're told he's no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he's flanked by a number of cast members.

With his duties pared down, Jussie will be spending way less time on set. Instead of working every day this week, we're told Jussie's working Friday and possibly Thursday, and he won't be rehearsing.

TMZ reports that writers are busy editing his part down. I have a source at Empire, he sent me this animatic of Jussie's planned scenes.

21 15 I wouldn't cry for him. He'll gets lots of other work. He's famous. He's a name, now, and that's pretty much all that counts. Empire is just trying to capitalize on more of that sweet, free publicity by tossing his name around some more.

25 Idiots like this don't realize that the bullshit that they're spouting about structural racism and victimhood hierarchies are bullshit.

If he had two brain cells to rub together, he'd realize that being gay and black in the US now is actually living life on easy mode if you have half a marketable skill. You're Brave and everyone wants to hire a Gay Black guy for no other reason than those attributes.

But nope, he actually believed his own propaganda and now he's paying the price for faking martyrdom.

You're behind the curve. He DID rehearse the hoax attack -- six hours before the fake-attacked, he rehearsed a play which has a scene in which a light-skinned black star comes out as gay and get hate-attacked by white rednecks:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6717419/ Jussie-Smollett-appeared-play-biracial-gay-baseball -star-similarly-attacked.html

The "attack" in Chicago is EXACTLY like the attack he had just performed on stage during theater tryouts, earlier in the evening.

So, yeah -- he "rehearsed" it.

123 I think now is a good time to remind everyone that conservatives are too hard on the media.

You jest but the day a story comes out about the deep state trying to depose the president using a fake memo, the NYT ran a story about how the president is using intimidation and power to harm his political foes. Yeah, that's the REAL story here, NYT. You go, girl.

I couldn't tell if it was good or they were just playing perfectly to my musical tastes. New York Freakin' Dolls in the very first episode!

It got hard to take, though, because every time you thought a character was close to redemption he'd just double down and be more awful.

It did feature Naked Olivia Wilde with Full Merkin, so there's that.

169 Been watching True Detective, Episode 3. Not as good as Episode 1 but okay. One problem they seem to have is mixing voices with background noise/mood music. Why would an actor mumble to the point of not being understood, especially in a detective show? It is really annoying. Its not just me, my wife is replaying a scene to try and figure out what someone said. You would think NextFlix, who gave Obama $60M, would spend some money on production values like voices and what they say.

Jussie can use that newly acquired free time to find the 2 rednecks in MAGA hats who attacked him. Speaking of that, what about the woman who gave a detailed description of the 2 rednecks hanging around the apartment building? I'm sure she's some leftist bitch looking to lie to keep the lie going

365 Another OT response

Rosenstein took the Trump Russia investigation away from him in the only way he could, by assigning it to a Special Counsel. As much as everyone dislikes Mueller, what would you be saying if Rosenstein had seen what was going on and left the investigation in his hands?
Posted by: JackStraw

------

Alternate theory, Rosenstein knew McCabe was toast as temporary FBI director and didn't know who Trump would pick to replace Comey and the impact on the coup. So they decided that Rosenstein should pick a SC to continue the work to eliminate Trump interference.

Given that the person he chose immediately hired a team of partisan Democrats as well Strzok and Page, this theory fits the facts better.

He will enter a rehab facility for 90 days, claiming an addiction to meth, or heroin or some opiate, causing him to become paranoid.

He will come out of rehab and do another interview with Robin Roberts where he will tell all about what he did and why he did it, with a pretty significant sympathy push by the media.

He will be appointed some kind of position by the state of Illinois, or City of Chitcago as a LGBT Czar to better communicate and understand the "community."

Nothing.

Dogshit is the Energizer F*cking Bunny compared to our blue-state GOPs. Even more an accomplishment as in my lifetime (pre 90s' mass immigration) we were approximately a 50-50 State: red upstate, blue downstate and numbers pretty much equal.

We only started seeing retractions in the Covington / Chief 3-Teef hoax after credible threats of legal action.

They just don't voluntarily regret or acknowledge anything. Their only regret is that the bombs missed the target. No shame, no conscience, no lesson learned, no nothing.

Every time they discover incontrovertible evidence that we're not racist haters, they don't draw that conclusion. They just say we're incompetent racist haters or something.

Early GAINZZZ Thread/Low Carb Recipe Bleg Thread

I'm in a busted fast -- I went four full days of fasting (Tuesday through Saturday), then I got panicky that I was going to do damage to myself and the panic spiraled until I broke the fast, first with not-so-unhealthy chicken noodle soup, and then with the greasiest carbiest Chinese food that $60 could buy.

Then I felt like a total dick and total pussy for having gotten panicky and permitted that as an excuse to break the fast, so I threw out what was left of the food (which wasn't a lot, tbh -- I went train on that fucking Chinese food) and restarted the fast Sunday.

So Tuesday through Friday fasting, EAT ALL THE CARBS Saturday, then Sunday through today fasting again.

That makes today Day 3 (again), which is always a real bastard of a day for me. So I've had to go through the really tough Day 3 twice in a week.

I'm thinking about what delicious but low-carb/keto things I can eat when I break fast.

So, talk about YO GAINZZZ here, generally, of any kind.

And also, if you've got some favorite low carb/keto recipes, please let me know. Links to online recipes, whatever.

I'm looking for really good stuff to start making when I break the fast.

One thing I can't find online: a recipe for low-carb fried clam strips, using crushed pork rinds as a "breading." I don't know if the lack of a recipe for this means that this just won't work, or if the lack of a recipe just means, "It's the same as every other recipe where you substitute crushed pork rinds for breading, stupid. Use your imagination."

Anyone have any ideas?

Also, while I've found a lot of recipes for low-carb fried chicken (using almond flour, parmesan, and crushed pork rinds for "breading"), I wondering if anyone has one they would say is the best. The most like KFC, or the most like Popeyes.

Also -- what would the best oil be for it? Buttermilk and egg for the wash, or just egg?

I found a "fried rice" recipe using riced cauliflower -- anyone have any suggestions for how to prepare pork so I can cut it up and make pork fried riced cauliflower?

I'm also really jonesing for batter-fried cod or flounder. Or a McDonald's style Filet-O-Fish. Basically any excuse to deploy some tartar sauce.

9 For a "comfort food" type of dish I will steam cauliflower, drain well and put it back in the pot with some butter, sour cream OR ranch, shredded cheese and the Costco bacon pieces, salt, papper, garlic powder and mash it all up with a potato masher ( or fork would work) just chunky, not trying to get it smooth or anything. Then pour into a baking dish with more cheese on top and bake until bubble. It's actually pretty simple and quick. The leftovers also makes a great breakfast - kind of hashbrown casserole kind of deal.

38 I need to get back into IF patterns.

Intermittent fasting, not the crazy multi-day versions , has really cut my food intake. I simply can't eat as much as I used to. When I try, I get sick. In a way, I'm kinda sad...

I've given serious thought to going straight meat and veggies with two slices of bread a day, right after workouts so I don't bork my gut bacteria entirely.

But I also really love rice and taters so I may not manage to do the meat and veg only thing happen.

You might laugh, but one of the best things I broke fasts with was canned peas and carrots with butter and pepper. It's what gave me the 'meat and veg diet' idea to me. I could eat a whole can of peas and carrots and be very happy. Toss in some meat and that's a good meal, to me.

As for your easy pork, do a pork shoulder/butt wrapped in parchment and foil (two layers of each), and cook in the oven at like 225 for 10+ hours; or use a slow cooker instead of all that. Season with whatever spices/salt/pepper you like. Should come out to a nice pull-able consistency.

42 I'm continuing my lifelong enjoyment of carb foods like pancakes, oatmeal, rice, bread, tortillas and potatoes. Can't say I ever liked pork rinds. Salted peanuts in the shell are among the things I'd never give up.

I don't crave deep fried foods - my superhero weakness is sour cream. There's nothing in this world not improved by baking, dipping, stuffing or blending with sour cream.

dude I've been low carb for a long, long time. I don't want to eat baked chicken forever.

There's a difference between a short-term diet where you can eat bland stuff like that and count on willpower to get you through and an ongoing diet.

46 Ace, if cauliflower is okay, then just roast it with tons of olive oil and garlic and chili flakes and kosher salt. High heat (425 degrees) for as long as it takes to make it nice and golden...maybe 30-40 minutes.

While you are doing that, cut up some pork into bite-sized chunks and saute it on high heat, and when everything is done, toss it together.


Or bacon. That will work with the cauliflower too!

55 Not to be too critical or anything, but maybe four days is a bit long for a fast? Back when I was 28, I could fast but now that I'm 29 I need to eat at least once a day, because once I do finally eat nothing in the neighborhood is safe.

Btw I was in Costco yesterday, they had samples of fried Potato Pancakes with applesauce (yum) next to Spinach Salad with feta. The PP lady couldn't keep up with demand. The line just grew and grew. The poor guy hawking spinach was literally begging people to try a bite.

The best diet is the one that works for you, and if you're breaking it periodically and going ham with all the foods you're not supposed to be eating, it certainly seems like your best option is to try a different strategy.

the only problem is that breading packs a lot of carbs. Can be something like 10 or 16 carbs just for breading.

That's why I'm keen to do this pork rind breading thing. I love breaded stuff and I cheat a lot having breaded stuff.

if I could make a "breaded" chicken parm, or cod, or mozzrella sticks with pork rinds, I'd be avoiding a lot of temptation.

74 Ace. Been doing low carb/keto since New Year. 20lbs down and I really only need another 5 maybe and then I am in maintenance mode. Keeping my carb count down to about 20-25 per day. I made a keto pizza the other night that was really good. The crust is 1 block of cream cheese a cup of parmesan and 2 eggs and garlic powder. Blend it and bake in in a cake pan fo 15-20 min or until brown. LEt it cool a bit and then top it with whatever. I found a sauce called Rao's that is only 4 carbs in a half cup which is all you use on the pizza anyway! I browned some spicy Italian sausage and some onions, mozzarella and a little more garlic and then cooked it for 10 min or so until the cheese was brown. It was pretty damn good!

I've now finished an entire year of a Paleo-centric, low glycemic diet. I hit my goal during the summer (when I'm most active) of right around ~12% body fat. Picked up a few pounds since, but not much in the way of fat.

The wife, who follows my lead, though I don't coerce her in any way, weighs less now then when we married. Decades ago.

We pretty much have sworn off bread. But I like a sandwich once in a while and a 'club roll' at 140 calories is a better deal then two slices of bread at a combined 220 calories.

144 Been doing keto since the new year started. Must be something as I'm down to 213 this morning from 239 on NYE.

Wife and I have been using the Sous Vide for pork, as it allows to cook to the lowest possible temp and still be safe.

Can go medium (which is more common now a days) but just keep it cooking longer, as bacteria is sensitive to temp AND duration. So you don't have to overcook the shit out of it as long as you keep it in the hot tub long enough to kill the baddies. keep the juices in for the best damn swine you can eat. pork tenderloin will rock.

I don't know where you guys came up with this keto shit, but it cannot be good for your long-term health.

Mostly protein and veggies with some healthy fat IS KETO.
LOL
Too much protein when you're not lifting heavy to build muscle or above that will turn to glucose. I eat low carb/high fat and don't worry about ketosis, but if he's eating protein, veg, and fat then he's close to keto or is metabolically flexible, which is really the real goal. That's when you can have some more carbs in the form of things like sweet potatoes without worrying about it.

Not to bitch about fellow commenters here (who are more supportive than most people), but that is one of my biggest gripes.

Everyone -- and I mean EVERYONE -- has a fucking opinion on what I eat, when I should eat it, how much I should eat, and how often I should eat.

I don't get it.

A person I barely know was getting super judgey with me because I don't eat during the day. She was almost yelling at me for not eating lunch. She was telling me I'm super unhealthy and all these other things.

And it's not like she was in great shape -- I'm probably thinner than she is. Clearly what I'm doing works for me, I've lost a decent amount of weight, and more importantly, feel a lot better and less sluggish / fatigued all day.

So... why is it anyone elses business if I don't feel the need to carbo load 3 meals a day?

168 I found a Keto no-carb baked fried chicken recipe. It's awesome, and it uses - get this - fried pork rinds as the coating! It freaking works!

Just dip the chicken pieces in milk (or soak overnight) and then dip in egg, roll in crushed pork rinds flavored as you like until well coated. There's so many brands and flavors you'll need to figure out the seasoning on your own, a lot won't need any added salt.

Plop on nonistick baking sheet, drizzle a little melted butter or olive oil on top, then bake it at 325-350 for however long.

169 Ace, do you meal prep? I've been controlling carbs for about five years now, and I find meal prep smooths out the rough patches for me.
For example, just this morning I made a batch of lunch/snack. Nabbed three big chicken breasts from the store ($6), half a bag of frozen chopped spinach and frozen broccoli florets ($2 apiece), and Mission carb balance tortillas ($4 for a pack of eight). I season and cook the breasts, heat up spinach and broccoli. Then I chop it all up and grind it together in a cuisinart. So I end up with a huge container of ground chicken with vitamins and fiber mixed in that lasts about a week.

Toss it on a tortilla, season if you want, add low fat cheese, and throw it in a George Foreman grill for two minutes.
It's a high protein, low carb, high fiber meal replacement with vitamins on the lower end of calories. It's my go to when I can't decide if I'm hungry or bored. Filling, too.
Just having that in the house saves my ass a lot of the time when I don't want to be bothered cooking and just want something to eat. Maybe give it a whirl.

BTW, to all those here suspicious of what a keto diet does for your health, if done right it ENHANCES your health. You're cutting out _all_ sugar and flour products. You're eating tons of fresh and cooked veggies (at least on my version), and yes, you're eating fat and protein. You will feel great, not be hungry if doing it right, and have more energy.

You will lose weight.

Add intermittent fasting (eating once or twice per day) and you will do even better.

186 A year ago my wife and I started a program called "Always Hungry", by Dr. Ludwig. I took a few nutrition courses in Grad school, and this is scientifically sound. I lost 28 lbs., and weigh less than when I got married 32 years ago. My wife lost near the mid 30's. No limit on meat, but you must include a good amount of fat in your diet. There is no limit on quantity, only on type. It completely changed my appetite, I have little desire to snack.
Last spring they came out with a recipe book, "Always Delicious". We've used quite a few, but it takes some experimentation. They also have a facebook page where people share ideas and recipes. One of our favorites is cauliflower with melted cheddar, sour cream, and chives.

192 Ace, the KETO diet is the exact same thing as Atkins which has been around for decades. I was about 50 pounds overweight a few years ago and started Weight Watchers but got tired of counting every morsel I ate. So I switched to the old Atkins: All the meat, butter, veggies, pickles, olives, peppers, eggs, cheese you can eat; but drink lots of water. You can get pretty creative with recipes if you like to cook. the most important thing is to eat whole and avoid manufactured anything. If you want bread eat it; just make sure it is whole grain. You can eat potatoes and rice, pasta as well but just in smaller portions. You should not fast or starve yourself because that's when the cravings overwhelm you. I've been at my ideal weight for 7 years. You got this!

205 >>> A year ago my wife and I started a program called "Always Hungry", by Dr. Ludwig. I took a few nutrition courses in Grad school, and this is scientifically sound. I lost 28 lbs., and weigh less than when I got married 32 years ago. My wife lost near the mid 30's. No limit on meat, but you must include a good amount of fat in your diet.

that's what I'm going to try. Although I've been talking about "keto," in fact I've been doing low-carb high PROTEIN. I could not shake 40 years of propaganda about high fat.

but I'm going to actually adopt the high fat diet, and lower the protein (except on like lifting days).

I brown it on high heat in an oven safe pan.. then toss it into a 350 degree oven until i reaches 150. Perfect every time.. a little pink in the middle.

218 I started a Protein Sparing Modified Fast (search for PSMF) on 31 January, down 20 lbs thus far. I'm following Lyle McDonald's "The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook."

I eat twice a day, 8.6 oz of chicken breast plus various non-starchy vegetables (as much as I want). At first I was horrified how small the portions were, now I have to remind myself to eat. The body is weird.

I plan on transitioning into keto in a month or so, adding kettlebell tabata-timed lifting.

I'm lazy as hell, but sous vide makes it easy. I can fix 6 chicken breasts at once, throw some in the fridge and the rest in the freezer.

TL;DR: Fat guy crash diets, pleased with results.

219 True, constant caloric deficit is all you need to lose weight. But different things work for different people. I wouldn't do multi day fasts but it's a free country.
Posted by: Nigel West Dickens at February 19, 2019 03:11 PM (GTKWb)

Right.

It's generally true that you need to burn more calories than you consume.

However, a) your body doesnt process all food the same, and b) certain foods seem to trigger much worse insulin reactions in some people that cause them to be really hungry.

For example, I realized that if I eat a bagel for breakfast, I'll be tired and hungry all day.

if I don't eat my first meal until I'm hungry (usually in the late afternoon/ evening), and it's fat and protein heavy, I feel great all day, and can much more easily eat at a calorie deficit.

I also find it easier to wake up and go in the morning.

Just my personal observations about myself though, YMMV.

233 If you struggle to lose weight no matter what you eat and have chronic indigestion issues, heartburn, or constipation, Google "low stomach acid symptoms".
Low stomach acid is incredibly common and often the first domino in a host of other health issues.
It's also easily reversible: you can take HCL (replacement stomach acid) capsules with meals.
(Do NOT take that if you're using NSAIDs: you'll give yourself an ulcer)

A simple way to test yourself for it is to mix 1/4 tsp baking soda into 6 oz water and drink that on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. You should have a fizzy, carbonated burp within 2 minutes. Test 3 mornings in a row to get an average.
If you burp after 2 minutes, it's a little low. Burp after 3-4 minutes, it's waaay low. Never burp and your (desperately needed) gastric juices are so low you're on a fast track to a gallbladder attack.

Most people lose 10-15 lbs in a few weeks just taking HCL with every meal. Without enough acid in your stomach your food ferments in your gut, causing bloating, indigestion, weight gain, joint pain, thyroid issues, hair loss, and weak nails, to name a few.

I am one of those lucky bitches who can, in general, eat whatever she wants and still stay thin. I was having a little trouble keeping 2-3 extra pounds off (I'm 5' tall and about 101 lbs, so 2-3 extra lbs is visible on me), but I started doing cardio exercise 30 min/day every day and eating smaller meals (like, a slice of cheese and some crackers is the entire meal). After sticking with that for about six weeks, I finally dropped those 2-3 lbs, and I have been holding steady between 100-102 for a while - even with the occasional cookie.

240 >>>Why do you do five days? Is there a certain biochemical reason?

...

I want to do ten or 12.

As for reasons: first of all, it just does a lot of good for a lot of things. Improves insulin sensitivity, spikes Human Growth Hormone, starts autophagy. And of course you start losing a pound of fat a day.

The third day is the hardest because by day 3 you've definitely run out of all stored glycogen and you might not be in full ketosis yet, so you're in an energy dark zone where you can't feed off your stored glucose energy but your body isn't really kicking on to ketosis yet.

plus hunger just tends to reduce for whatever reason on day 4.

Imbalance can greatly effect your nutritional absorption and hunger hormones.

I was watching a story on a women with an intestinal disorder that caused her intense pain. They did a fecal transplant from her daughter to replinish certain strains of her gut bacteria. It worked well and cured her illness.

However, she went from slim and fit (BMI under 1 to clinically obese within 8 months.

The documentary I watched said researchers are still trying to isolate specific strains of bacteria that promote healthy weight that seem to occur in larger numbers in fit people, but for now their best advice is to create a diet that promotes all levels of gut bacteria, which doesn't seem right because you are promoting the ones as well that may contribute to obesity, but I'm no nutritionist, so I can't say that with certainty.

The road map to happiness simply doesn't exist. There are things that tend to be "comorbid" with it - family, religion, a job you feel is important and fulfilling. But lots of people who you'd think are happy, like Richard Cory, end up going home and putting a gun in their mouth.

Pork chunks and seasoning and water or stock. Boil (simmer) down in liquid. Fat renders during the boil phase. After the liquid evaporates, it deep fries itself! AUTOMAGICALLY!

Magic Pot.

268 Ace: Use any of the "high heat" oils, like peanut, canola, sunflower seed, etc.

As to batter, you can crush corn flakes or another crispy low-carb breakfast cereal or crushed cracker (wheat thins are fantastic) if you don't want to use standard tempura-style batter, or a simple egg, milk and flour (gluten free? Rice or almond flour?) (and Salt!) set up. If you use a breakfast cereal or cracker mixture, you just need something that will help it stick to the fish before you toss in the super high-heat oil for a quick fry. Egg mixture with flour works great. Just make sure to heavily salt the fish BEFORE applying any of the coating.

271 I really find that daily intermittent fasting is the easiest way to fast. It's not a cumulative thing, like keto, so if you fuck up Thursday you can still IF Friday just as effectively as if you'd done it 66 days in a row.

I found keto WAY too hard. I can go without food up to a point, but I have a harder time going without CERTAIN foods indefinitely.

I get my best results limiting carbs as much as possible with a cap of 75g a day, IF'ing 8 PM to noon, and running 3-5 times a week.

The road map to happiness simply doesn't exist. There are things that tend to be "comorbid" with it - family, religion, a job you feel is important and fulfilling. But lots of people who you'd think are happy, like Richard Cory, end up going home and putting a gun in their mouth.

Hi, tits. That's another reason I like intermittent fasting-- I am asleep for about eight of the 16 hours I fast. That cuts it down to about three hours a night and then five hours in the morning. The five hours in the morning aren't the easiest-- I LOVE BREAKFAST FOODS of all kinds-- but there has to be some sacrifice involved somewhere if you are trying to change your body.

297 The third day is the hardest because by day 3 you've definitely run out of all stored glycogen and you might not be in full ketosis yet, so you're in an energy dark zone where you can't feed off your stored glucose energy but your body isn't really kicking on to ketosis yet.

plus hunger just tends to reduce for whatever reason on day 4.

Posted by: ace at February 19, 2019 03:21 PM (PbpT7)

I once did the zero carb/sugar diet, with the goal of hitting ketosis in 10 days. On day 8 I got tunnel vision and dizziness so bad I almost called an ambulance. I had to crawl up stairs to the kitchen and have some cookies and a sandwich before calling. Within a half hour or so, I felt fine.

I can see how that diet works for a lot of people, as I lost 12 lbs. in that 8 days. My body just informed me that such a diet was not for me.

Yup.
Why tell people to take a little acid with meals when you can write them a recurring prescription?
The stomach is closed off at the top by the lower esophageal sphincter: when food entered the stomach the system generates more stomach acid to digest it, acidity increases, and that highly acidic fluid splashes against the LES, triggering it to close.
When that fluid *is not acidic enough*, the sphincter doesn't close and the acid washes right past it and you get heartburn.
Taking a shot of pure lemon juice stops heartburn in minutes.
Antacids neutralize it *so you don't feel it*: they don't close the stomach and stop it.

Put "low stomach acid heartburn" into a search engine. Revealing. And infuriating.

Brown the pork loin on all sides/ends on med-high heat in EVOO, then place it on foil, top with garlic herbs and 4 or 5 thick pats of butter, at least 4 tbsp. Wrap it up in the foil and bake for about 35 minutes at 350F. Tender and juicy, and you can spoon the melted butter-herb mixture over the slices.

No one would be trying new diets or "fad diets" if the standard american medical advice worked.

It doesn't. It doesn't matter how many times you say Calories In Calories Out. It doesn't work. As I said, this is the single most thoroughly established FACT in all of health.

I go to sleep a few hours after Dolley, which gives me time to watch something with her (right now it's a rewatch of Breaking Bad) and then something for myself, followed by some writing until about 2 in the morning.

I can manage to function with 4-5 hours of sleep, which can be hard for a lot of people.

But, it's what I do.

337 290 Question on the HCL: Do you think taking an acid reflux medication would cause low HCL?
Posted by: sniffybigtoe at February 19, 2019 03:29 PM (xfb67)
--------
Shit, yes.
Proton pump inhibitors actually shut off your stomach's acid factories, and regular mineral antacids (like TUMS) neutralize your acid, and then your food isn't broken down properly and your body *can't absorb the nutrients it uses to make stomach acid*.
Leading to silent reflux, bloating, indigestion, constipation, SIBO, Candida overgrowth..and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Yup.
Why tell people to take a little acid with meals when you can write them a recurring prescription?
The stomach is closed off at the top by the lower esophageal sphincter: when food entered the stomach the system generates more stomach acid to digest it, acidity increases, and that highly acidic fluid splashes against the LES, triggering it to close.
When that fluid *is not acidic enough*, the sphincter doesn't close and the acid washes right past it and you get heartburn.
Taking a shot of pure lemon juice stops heartburn in minutes.
Antacids neutralize it *so you don't feel it*: they don't close the stomach and stop it.

Put "low stomach acid heartburn" into a search engine. Revealing. And infuriating.

I am not a believer in these "one size fits all" diets. I'm a bigger believer in fundamental nutrition. If you limit yourself to certain foods that you know your body reacts to in a certain way. That includes juices. First I mostly make my own juice because almost all you buy have other juices or ingredients you don't want. I also try to stay with things like grapefruit juice, which has fat burning properties. But the key is really to ensure you do PT every day. A good routine that covers all body parts.

404 Stuffed baked shrimp, another easy and delicious recipe.

Buy big shrimp. Butterfly cut them open, almost all the way through. Mound stuffing into the cavity, press the top butterfly food over the top, and bake in a 375 degree over for 20 minutes or until stuffing is golden colored.

Stuffing: I use a mixture of crushed wheat thins, garlic, salt, herbs of choice, and room temp soft butter. But you could substitute wheat thins for whatever (but may have to add more salt, cuz they're salty all by themselves). Substitutes could be corn flakes, another cracker, oven-dried gluten free bread (crushed), or whatever. Squeeze lemon over finished shrimp and enjoy.

yeah, weird thing for everyone: When you have GERD, you don't want antacid. You want the opposite: You want MORE ACID. Taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in water (six ounces or so) will stop the GERD within ten minutes.

also: Going low carb stops GERD. I used to have it every night and now I only have it when I have a lot of carbs an hour before going to sleep.

Basically, I don't have it any more.

429 Does this explain the Apple Cider Vinegar fad too? More acid?
Posted by: Curmudgeon at February 19, 2019 03:36 PM (ujg0T)
-----------
Yes, that's why it helps a lot of people with heartburn.
Some people whose gut microbiome is in really bad shape should avoid vinegar because it's a product of fermentation and they already have a serious fermentation problem, but pure lemon juice (1-1.5 oz tossed back straight, without touching the teeth) works very well, as does taking HCL capsules with a mouthful of lemon water.
Also avoid drinking water within 30 minutes of meals, so you don't dilute your acid.

Doctor's Best is a great brand for HCL: I got it on Amazon. 360 capsules for about $15.
Best $15 I ever spent.
Don't forget to use Ace's amazon link if any of you need to get it, y'all.

Remember that buckwheat is not wheat in any way -- the name is a linguistic misnomer in English. Buckwheat it totally unrelated to wheat and is instead a kind of seed which still can be cooked and used like a grain.

Anyway, if buckwheat is allowed, I HIGHLY recommend it, either for breaking the fast or for just eating under normal circumstances. Healthy and tasty, and a very convincing substitute for gluten-y grains, without losing any of the carby satisfaction.

After six months of keto (

One of our favorite thing to cook up is pepperoni stick. It's a family recipe, and not everyone likes it. We buy two sticks of Bridgeford pepperoni. Slice rounds about 1/4 - 3/8" thick. Put them on a cooling rack inside of a half sheet pan. Bake @ 415 for 12 minutes, pull, flip with tongs, and put in another 10 minutes. It makes a bunch, so if you're not sure you like it, do less at first. They're particularly good as they cool and the salt collects on one side.

martial arts helped me with that.
Posted by: ace


Might I recommend...chess?

It is extremely difficult, and yet has a definitive skill-acquisition curve in that active players get a "rating" which precisely and inarguably pinpoints your actual skill level, to a very precise degree.

And since you (rumors say) live in the NY area, there is a LOT of real-world in-person chess events there. Plus of course tons of chess online, no matter where you live.

It's mentally challenging, has "gravitas," is addictive, makes you look smart, and (believe it or not) is an extreme calorie-burning activity. Running your brain at full RPM for hours at a time day after day consumes a massive amount of blood sugar. Some players have reported losing between 5 and 7 pound during a three-day tournament! (Seriously).

Once thawed, it only takes few minutes to cut up and a few minutes to fry in the wok.

485 I have a theory, which sounds plausible though I don't have any experimental evidence for it, that a lot of depression is due to the human animal not doing the sorts of things or eating the sorts of things or moving through the sort of environment that every bit of his genetic coding is telling him is normal and natural.

Try to add in stuff that's quasi-primal like walking in a woods, or by a river, in sunlight.

You can turn all that back around, but make sure you don't have gastritis (it's common to develop that after prolonged PPI use: your stomach's protective mucosal lining thins because there's abnormally little acid in your stomach, leading to irritation and eventually ulcers). And don't take HCL or lemon juice/ACV with any NSAID (like Ibuprofen), because those thin the stomach lining all by themselves and you can do yourself a damage.

I put a good link about addressing low acid in my nic, so I don't blow the margins.

It really pisses me off... See you got these here eyes and they are super eyes. But they aren't super eyes like the can see far away or microscopically or ultra vision or x-ray. No, these eyes work like regular eyes and shoot laser beams.

So they are not super enhanced eyes where the function of the eye has been enhanced, but rather they have made it an energy emitting device, which seems to be counter productive to a eye that actually see's things. Can she see things when she is shooting her eye beams.
This makes as much sense as fembots with 45 caliber boobs.

496 If you can stand cabbage and celery, then make a big pot of soup from smoked turkey wings or pig's feet.

Just cover them with water in a big ass pot, add a little vinegar, bring to a boil, and then cover and lower the heat to a simmer for a few hours.

Put in scraps of onion, celery, and garlic. Just rinse it before you put it in. I usually add some bay leaf, as well. Any pathogens will be killed by the boil and long simmer.

Pull out the pig's feet or turkey wings and put on a plate. Strain out all the other solids and put into containers for the fridge. Shred the meat off the bones by hand, and put into a separate fridge container.

If you have a skillet with a lid, use it to make your soup. Pour some of the broth into the skillet. Cut a wedge from a head of cabbage and then slice it into bite-sized pieces. Cut up the shitty parts (white and leaf parts) from some celery into rather large chunks and save the good parts for celery sticks. Throw the veggies into the skillet with some of the shredded meat, cover and simmer until the veggies are soft (about twenty minutes).

When you are ready to serve, take an egg from the fridge and put it into a coffee cup. Run hot tap water over it for about thirty seconds and let it sit for about a minute to take the chill off. Break the egg into the soup and stir it around.

Add salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste. This is extremely filling and contains nearly zero net carbs.

504 and now for your request:
Buffalo Keto Chicken Tenders

we haven't tried it with pork rinds, but that's probably next time

First marinate in buffalo sauce, overnight is best. I make it with 1:3 butter:Frank's hot sauce. So that's 1oz of butter to 3oz of Frank's. Because I'm broken, I also mince garlic and add it to the sauce.

1 lb chicken breast, cut into thick strips (thicker than fajita strips)
1 cup almond flour
1 large egg
1 Tbl heavy cream
salt/pepper

Preheat oven to 350
season chicken with salt and pepper
season almond flour generously w/ salt and pepper
beat egg with heavy cream
dip each piece in egg wash, then in the almond flour
(I tried to do the shake and bake thing, suboptimal with 3 lbs of chicken)
place chicken on lightly greased baking sheet (or one with a silicone mat)
Bake 30 minutes, if you want more crispy, broil for 2-3 min
cool for 5 minutes, then toss in buffalo sauce, shaking gently so the batter doesn't fall off
(we omitted the last step and just dipped in sauce or poured it over the chicken)

It was excellent. We've deep fried chicken with an egg wash, and parmesan with almond or coconut flour too. That's a good bit more work, and doesn't lend itself well to asian dishes (our favorite).

I am 5'10" 170lbs and probably 10-12% bodyfat right now. I still have a long way to go to my desired 190lbs and sub 10% body fat but I used to be 165lbs and at least 20% body fat, and could not gain muscle to save my life. I tried for my entire life and couldn't do it.

So right now I am at about 2,500 calories per day.
200g protein
205g carbs
95g fats

In theory I track my macros but most days I don't whatsoever, I just stick with routine stuff I like and fits my plan.

Higher glycemic foods in the morning and before a workout.
Little to no carbs in the evening (lots of veggies and meats and fats)
MCT oil in the coffee
anti-inflammatory foods
I take a CLEAN pre-workout and post-workout
and I will have some exceptionally clean meal replacement shakes daily.

Once a month I will do a 48hr nutrtitionally supported cleansing fast

I lift weights 4 to 5 times a week with lower reps but it's all about progressive overload. That's the fun part.

I ALSO eat cake, cupcakes, scones, pizza, chinese food, bbq, whatever, and I don't make myself feel bad about it. Instead my food is fuel, not some treat for me being a good little boy.

Thanks, Chris

506 134 Costco sells a roasted vegetable frozen pizza with a cauliflower crust that's actually pretty good. No unusual flavor to the crust. I wish they made a version with meat toppings, but you can buy cauliflower crusts, and add your own toppings, I suppose.
______________

I buy a cauliflower-crust pizza at Fry's (owned by Safeway) that's good, and it comes in a variety of toppings, including pepperoni.

I've tried several brands of the cauliflower-crust pizzas now, and they vary greatly in quality. Some are just plain awful tasting, some are meh, and some are very good. The best tasting ones tend to be the ones where the crust is very thin.

I've tried the cauliflower-trying-to-masquerade-as-mashed potatoes dish (Green Giant makes this, among others) and it's just nasty. Tastes, and smells, like cauliflower, not potatoes. Unless you like the taste/smell of cauliflower, don't waste your money on that.

512 Spaghetti squash is another great low-carb "cheat."

It's really tough (and dangerous) to cut. I jab it a few times with a skewer and then nuke it for two minutes and let it stand for another two minutes to soften it up before slicing in half.

You can make a kickass carbonara with cooked spaghetti squash. Beat two yolks plus one egg with some grated parmesan cheese. Fry up some bacon, add the cooked squash, and then quickly mix in the egg/cheese combo.

A bacon trick: Cook it on the weekend in an electric skillet on really low temp setting until it's 80% done. It renders out the grease and doesn't splatter. Don't drain the bacon on paper towels--just put it on a plate to cool before you put it in a ziplock bag. The extra grease helps it keep longer. When you want to eat it, it cooks up in a hot skillet in about a minute.

Good luck to you in your fasting endeavors.

522 Nurse Ratched--

My experience matches ace, although I'm not confident of the explanation as to why. (It makes sense, but I'm not sure that what we reason out has any bearing on reality, especially in the area of diet. Otherwise, eat-less-move-more would work.)

My guess about the third day is that it's hardest psychologically. Going a day without food is nothing. Two days, yeah, I start to notice. The third day, it's like, "hey, you should probably eat, even if you're not hungry".

I dunno. I think most things are in our heads, anyway. ;-)

524 I don't know if keto is for everyone, but I lost 74 lbs on it from Feb-October 2018. Kept it off since then (went up and down a bit between the holidays and what not), and trying to start losing more past the 74 lb threshold.

No other diet's worked as well or as strongly for me, must just be something about how I'm wired for carbs.

Alfredo Sauce
it's stupid easy

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated parmesan
salt and pepper to taste

Toss together over low heat until melted.

We usually add garlic and basil/pesto to this, and put it over cooked chicken.
Cooked chicken is just seasoned with onions, garlic, olive oil, maybe basil or oregano. Wrap in foil, put on sheet pan, bake at 350 for an hour. Pull it out, let it cool and then chop or shred. Mix in with alfredo sauce.

539 Hey Broseidon. Sorry you are battling Depression. You've been in the fight and probably have some idea what works. Tweaking your regimen with what others have found helped them might help. Like if you are on drugs that help but need more to get through the gray days of winter.

If you need some incentive to get out and you like animals you could try combining Ratchets advice with Aces and volunteer to walk dogs for a shelter. Or maybe you need to change careers. Dave Ramsey has one of his staff doing career advice podcasts now. Ken Coleman I think. Might be some good advice for figuring out what kind of job/career might be more rewarding for you if current work is just slogging to the paychecks. Since I like my job tasks, although not always my job I've never explored this, so I don't know how useful Ken's podcast is, just a possible resource.

553 Calories in calories out does work for me, but keto has been much less stressful and more fulfilling. Last time I counted calories I felt like I was starving myself for 2 weeks at the beginning. This time I never felt like I was starving, just dropping weight.

Posted by: Inogame at February 19, 2019 04:48 PM (ySZHT)

554 Inogame. Yup, I've skimmed the papers from professors with "I lost weight eating snickers" Well sure, *you* did not get spiraling cravings eating snickers, and you munched some celery or green beans for fiber and drank some Ensures to meet some protein and vitamin needs and were able to do that for a month to get your paper and lose or maintain weight.

But most people benefit from some kind of system, and the fairly large group that is somewhat IR or whatever is helped by either doing some sort of carb limiting if not actual keto eating; or timing meals so that the body uses up its insulin. And there is some mental aspect too. For some people simply not eating anything 1 or 2 days a week is easiest. For me just skipping supper during the work week works best. If I feel a bit hungry in the evening I just remind myself "well I'm not eating anymore today, If my body is really needing calories I will be extra hungry tomorrow at my meals and I'll get my calories then.

1. I made a comment about things being in one's head. Not to you, but to Nurse Ratched regarding the third day of fasting.

2. You replied. Fatuously, I thought, but perhaps I should've read that as anger.

3. I spelled out what I meant.

4. You responded, angrily again--though again, I'm not really reading it as anger because we're all friends on the GAINZ threads*--and as a materialist would.

5. Since that amused me, I responded with what I thought was whimsy.

6. Even angrier, you now accuse me of two bizarre beliefs: That prayer would cure your problems and that pills would not.

7. Since neither of those things would have ever occurred to me--I've never told anyone not to take medicine and I don't even think I know what "praying harder" means--I make the observation that you are arguing with someone else, perhaps those who have told you you needed to pray harder.

8. And here we are with you saying there is no other possible interpretation here.

I do apologize for not recognizing your upset sooner but nothing in your head was ever in mine. (And, yes, I'm using head metaphorically again.)

For pork, get a nice fat marbled roast, bone in or boneless, it doesn't matter. Cut into 2" squares, rub with a package of taco seasoning mix, put it in a crock pot if it has a bone toss it in for collagen, let it cook on low for 6-8 hours. When it's absolutely tender, shred it with a couple of forks.

Anyway, I've been on Keto and IF since August and all my bloodwork has improved and I'm off two of my three prescriptions.

Last night for supper I made portobella burgers where you mix a pound of ground beef with about 4-6 oz shredded cheddar/whatever cheese you like, seasonings of your choice. You can also add some minced spinach and the mushroom stems if your portobellas had them. Form into three patties. Place 3 portobello mushrooms, gill side up, on a baking sheet. Now press a hamburger onto each mushroom. Bake at 375 for about 30 mins.

Here is a fast supper. Shrimp Alfredo. 1 part butter and 2 parts each of heavy cream and grated parmesan. Melt the butter, add some garlic, add heavy cream once the butter is melted. Add the parmesan and stir till it's all melted and the sauce is warm enough. Salt and pepper to taste. If the sauce is too thick, add some more cream. If too thin, add some more parmesan. Then add a bunch of pre-cooked thawed frozen shrimp and let that warm up. Serve over shirataki noodles, cauliflower "rice", or zoodles.

Sorry, I don't know anything about deep-frying clams so I can't help you there.

There is a site called KetoConnect.net that has some Indian recipes as the female who owns it is Indian. I can't vouch for those recipes as I haven't tried them.

It's Time for Congress and State Legislatures to Make Hoax Hate Crimes Themselves Hate Crimes, and Felonies to Boot

As Infobee and John Hayward argue -- what is a hoax hate-crime if not an effort to create waves of hatred and possible violence against a race or group?

BTW, Rush Limbaugh read this thread and pointed out, rightly, that we'd be living in a different, more dangerous world if Smollet's plan to get this fake attack on camera worked.

Apparently the camera he thought would film the attack was pointed in the opposite direction.

But if he had gotten this basic fact right, we'd have seen coverage of this staged attack of MAGA-hat wearing white men (wearing gloves and ski-masks to hide their ethnicity) beating up and tying a noose around the neck of a black man.

This would have of course created -- what's that word? -- Backlash against white people, especially those wearing red hats, and put their lives in danger from bad actors seeking racial vengeance.

No one cares about this, huh?

This isn't hypothetical: Crazed leftwing lunatics are now sticking guns into the faces of people for merely wearing MAGA hats and telling them "Today is a good day for you to die."

According to the alleged victim Terry Pierce, a man pulled a gun on him because he was wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

"I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to," said Pierce.

The police report confirms that the suspect, identified as James Phillips, admitted to flipping off Pierce and Pierce's wife because of their hats.

Pierce tells 13 News that he was shopping with his wife when Phillips "Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, 'It's a good day for you to die.'"

It's time to criminalize these attempts to stir up Backlash against Republicans, and treat these attempts to stir up lynch parties as the hate crimes they are.








Hoax hate crimes are well beyond the usual threshold at which the media and our Ruling Class declares something to be an "epidemic" and "a scourge which must finally be ended."

Strangely enough, however, this time they're very quiet about the epidemic!

As the Daily Caller reports, there has indeed been an epidemic of hoax hate crimes, and our political-media establishment has done nothing to reduce this epidemic. In fact, they've made it worse, by excusing each new hoax hate crime with the "Deeper Truth" illogic. ("In this particular case, the hate crime may have been a hoax, but the hoax just points out the Deeper Truth of marginalized communities feeling forced to make up hoax hate crimes," etc.)

27 Two weeks after the Jussie Hoax, there was a genuine crime of hatred in the Chicago area.

The Aurora, Illinois shooter was a black man. He entered his workplace with a .40 cal weapon, and proceeded to shoot to death five white people.

He also shot at least five cops, whose ethnicity I don't know and who will luckily all survive.

Could that shooter in Aurora have been influenced by the non-stop news coverage of the alleged hate crime against Jussie, and let that be one more thing to get revenge for on his way out the door in a blaze of glory?

43 The problem with this argument is that the leftist counterargument is the same as with non-white racism: no, minorities can't be racist because they don't have power. In the same way, minorities can't cause backlash because...whatever. They lack power. The lack lash. Something. There's always a reason for two standards.

44 A hoax hate-crime is an aggressive criminal act.

It's bordering on treason in its seriousness.

I'd prefer something along the lines of 20 years in federal prison for being convicted of a hoax hate crime.

There in fact should be gradations of seriousness, as there is with homicide (negligent manslaughter, manslaughter, second-degree murder, etc. etc.) and sexual assault (attempted molestation, molestation, attempted rape, rape, etc. etc.).

If the hoax hate crime is simply a teenage lie that spun out of control (as with the Tawana Brawley case, who was simply trying to gin up a believable excuse to her mother, covering up why she had been out all night with a boy), then I suppose the punishment should be less, But in instances such as Jussie Smollet's crime, it should be considered "Incitement to racial hatred and rioting in the first degree," earning 20 years in prison.

Whenever a Muslim decides it's time to blow up a few women and children, CAIR is immediately all over the networks (CNN, NBC, ABC, BBC, etc.) exclaiming that backlash is coming, and the networks take up the call 100% in support. Regardless of no real backlash ever occurring.

And yet, the backlash is palpable, obvious, and prevalent against those on the right (especially MAGA supporters, advertisers)...and instead of taking the same position in opposition to any form of backlash, the networks are actually fanning the fans and extremely contributory with their own hyperbole and accusations.

56 Or jettison the entire category of hate crimes. It not just that its orwellian, the concept violates every principle of liberty and American justice. But there are other major concerns as well.

For one thing, the definitions and decisions of what makes a "hate crime" are entirely subjective and ever-changing, because its based on the latest progressive ideology. They change the list constantly of what is oppressor and who is oppressed, so you can't know or understand what is bad and what isn't.

For another criminalizing personal intent or animosity is a direct violation of the principles of law and the constitution. The founders were extremely clear and vehement about not pushing someone for their conscience or inner thoughts, yet here we are.

Another problem is that "damage to society" is not a proper basis for criminal prosecution or sentencing. That is completely subjective and again changes from year to year. Law has to be based on objective, absolute principles or it simply becomes a tool for oppression by the people in charge.

And finally basing laws and sentencing on how an individual feels about an act is without the slightest proper legal basis. Peoples feelings change from day to day or moment to moment. What feels intimidating or dangerous can change based on one's mood or situation. And to the extent any laws are based on subjective reaction, its based on commonality and social average: would the average person reasonably feel this way, not "did this person feel this way at that moment."

Hate Crimes are a tyrannical violation of almost every principle this nation was founded on and must be eradicated, not expanded.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at February 19, 2019 01:55 PM (39g3+)

57 So, given that filing a flase police report is a crime, there's one criminal charge.

75 Another point to consider:

What should be the punishment for the FACILITATORS and MAGNIFIERS of the crime, who themselves are often most responsible for its toxic social effects?

Tawana Brawley was a dumb teenage girl who simply lied to her mother. She started the hoax, but she had neither the influence to nor the intention to turn her lie into a national racial meltdown. No, ut was Al Sharpton, and cooperative media outlets, who turned a teenage excuse into a national crisis. But Al Sharpton himself did not perpetrate the original hoax. Yet he was largely responsible for its spread.

What is his level of culpability?

And in the Smollet case -- without the media pumping the story, it wouldn't have been a minor footnote on the Crime Beat column in a local Chicago paper. What is the media's level of culpability, and has can they conceivably be criminally punished?

That's the easier, most charitable explanation.
It's not their stupidity, it's that they already hate white, hetero men and Trump supporters, so these incidents confirm their hate, with added bonus of scoring political points.

93 These are people who are just not that smart but who have seized on affectations of intellect -- as leftwing politics always have been -- to cover-up for their insecurities.

Notice how the Reds always position themselves as the "smart" party. Every Democrat politician is "brilliant" - even the dullards, such as Obama and Gore - whereas every Republican politician is an idiot.

This is done to appeal to the intellectually insecure (not to mention the cognitively disenfranchised) to reassure themselves that of course they're smart - they think what the "smart" people think.

See also the prepending of "smart" to their policies, e.g., "smart" diplomacy.

penalty you tried to give your rapist.

This is the right answer. "Hate crimes" were a PC conspiracy and a "solution" in search of a problem.

As someone up there put it, hate it is a *motive*. If there's a crime that is particularly egregious, that is why we already have the "aggravation" modifier. Assault can become "aggravated assault" without needing "hate crime" nonsense.

they don't have power.

This is such a laughable position they take. Look up the word, 'racist' in any dictionary. It does not specify it applying only to one skin color or the other. It's a belief of one's own superiority over another race. That's what the word means. PERIOD. They deeply, deeply want to assign it to only whites. So they bend themselves into pretzels to accomplish it, even when it's a ridiculous, illogical position to hold.

136 To give them more charity than they deserve, I suspect that the nature of the job they're in contributes. A journalist gets a lot of credit and importance when they're the first person to report on something. Getting the scoop on it gets you awards. You don't get anything for being the person who waits to verify things.
Posted by: joe, living dangerously at February 19, 2019 02:02 PM (KUaJL)


I've thought that, too. The acceleration of the news cycle certainly doesn't help.

But the obvious way to deal with that is to indicate the tentativeness and early nature of the report.

Instead of blaring about, e.g., "the attack," publish the facts known to date about "the reported attack."

It doesn't take world-class wordsmithing to keep some editorial distance, which also provides cover if the initial report later gets debunked.

138 Hate crimes should not exist.

If there are "hate crimes" then there should also be "hate laws" - or laws that are made by legislators who hate the target of their laws.

Creating a law, or a budget because you hate someone, or hate people of a certain ideology is just as evil as a crime that gets the additional "hate crime" modifier attached to it.

143 the whole Trump/Russia lie is one big anti-America hate crime, intended to cripple/destroy a duly elected president. Same with most of the agitprop manufactured by BigMoney on the left, or from corporate open borders "fascists".


And whoever is leaking Trump's travel itineraries, is intending to get him assassinated ... as is most of the vicious hateful lies on the MSM. But the FBI itself is involved in those conspiracy theory lies.


Creamer was Obama's pal for thirty years, faking victims while creating the violence. MSM is part of the screenplay. Cops on stand down on behalf of antifa violence is also a hate crime, against Coulter/Milo ... any conservative. Social media giants are racketeering their censorship, coordinated action with multiple companies (defunding by banks/PayPal, coordinated with censorship by Google/FB/Twits).


It is coordinated to provoke such hate, that violence will occur, so normies will submit and cower, or at the least decide to not show up at rallies, not put up a Trump sign. The chilling effect, or the actual violence ... win win for the commies.

I can see this being turned on conservatives in a heartbeat. Wear a MAGA hat? Incitement to racial hatred. It's the same as wearing a Klan hood or a swastika, you know. Disagrees publicly with progressive race-based and racist policies? Incitement to racial hatred. That's the trouble with these things. Faking a hate crime should be a criminal act. But it's easy to see where this could easily and quickly go in the ThoughtCrime direction, and the progressives would almost certainly seize the opportunity to do so.

I just saw a true crime show (about the teenage girl burned to death in Mississippi, https://bit.ly/2U4Lc3O) and they showed the jury returning an acquittal. The judge asks if it's an unanimous verdict and one juror pops up, "No." They then poll the jury and there is more than one guilty. ( They don't tell us the score.) So there's a mistrial.

I've sat through hundreds of jury pollings. Never had one that required any further action. I've heard losing attorneys tell me they seek polling only to embarrass the jurors.

180 "Hate crimes" are "thought crimes" when you get down to it. The "hate" may be demonstrated by tangible things said and done, but generally it is imputed via the discernment of internal motive.

By definition, a person's liberty and future are contingent on the lunacy and imagination of the person projecting their own demented values and motives.

The Left, who dominates the prosecution side of things, are well known for imputing their own depraved ideas and motivation on to others. A Hate Crime now permits a Leftist to project their hate, racism and bigotry on to innocent targets.

206 The sam's club story reports are eliding something which can not only be read between the lines, but in other, fuller local coverage reports that do report the whol of the encounter.

Mr gun (James phillips of TN) had accosted the couple with obnoxious obscene had gestures. The male member of the couple called the obnoxious man out, instead of just getting the hell away from the crazy man as I likely would have done or ignoring the open insult. (Not judging this as wrong, it's just that women, and I am one,usually get the hell away from crazy men and conflict.).

Mr gun becomes alarmed after his target didn't back down or slink away, but argued with him. Like ant coward bully, he felt "assaulted" by the man who stood up to his insults. That's when he pulled the gun. He was scared and didn't want to fight the man, brandished his gun, then lowered it when challenged to shoot or fight.

A doofus coward, who did use "fighting words" with his hands in the store, brandished because the reaction to this scared him.

He didn't do this until he was losing an actual argument.

And look, I'm not saying throw the book at them - how about a year in jail and a $10,00 fine paid to whoever you tried to frame with your fucking hoax? That would shut this crap down stat.

Agree completely - that is I think the huge danger of allowing a case like this to cause us to make changes in the law, making it easier to "get" someone like Smollett. Any changes we make would be so easily turned against us by the left!!! The laws making prosections difficult for political crimes are there for *our* protection, not theirs, and if a few bad actors are allowed to walk away with nothing more than a fine because of that, it's a price I'm willing to pay for my own safety.

In Calif petty theft is now $950 or less.

And the cops do not waste their time on Petty theft.

Rate of crime here is through the roof, but hidden, because they only count SOLVED crimes in most statistics, not unsolved.

Its like the stupid border stats that say the drugs are coming through the Ports... that only counts the drugs FOUND. They find MORE drugs at ports, ergo the Dems say THAT is the problem.

Well, no, the problem is the drugs they DON'T find crossing the border at other places.

251 BTW, Rush Limbaugh read this thread and pointed out, rightly, that we'd be living in a different, more dangerous world if Smollet's plan to get this fake attack on camera worked.

Apparently the camera he thought would film the attack was pointed in the opposite direction.

But if he had gotten this basic fact right, we'd have seen coverage of this staged attack of MAGA-hat wearing white men (wearing gloves and ski-masks to hide their ethnicity) beating up and tying a noose around the neck of a black man.

Probably already mentioned, but, once Al Sharpton stepped in it became much worse that teenage fantasy. He named two police officers, one of whom had just committed suicide (IIRC) as Tawana's kidnappers. The dead guy could not defend his reputation (horrible thing to do to his already hurting family), and the other one became the target of the angry mob (and as someone mentioned above, successfully sued them for this).

269 a real "hate crime" is based in hate I guess, but a fake hate crime is framing an innocent, with much more conspiratorial intent. In Jussie's case it is not an individual, but a whole class of freedom lovers, and with the help of the MFM, it did (even now) 10,000 times more damage than if an individual got wrongly sent to prison.


It has been Hillary's whole "deplorable/irredeemable" narrative that is giving us our open borders crap, probably some wars, various cop killings inspired by BLM, and so on. Manufactured hate/crisis.

Propaganda is a very effective weapon in any war. The 24/7 MFM coverage of Jussie's own little war did untold damage to society, and a slap on the wrist is no way to stop future liars.

BUT he didn't know enough to know which way the camera was pointed, and it was pointed away from him. So they did their entire little skit for film while they were standing *Behind* the camera. Brilliant. Just... Brilliant. And this is a professional Actor, folks.

319 Thank God Trump is running *specifically* against socialism. He is a tactical genius and clearly loves America, and I am thankful every day he is on our side.

If they get someone with even half his skills on their side, we will be 9/10ths of the way to Commie Utopia before we can sneeze otherwise.

320 BUT he didn't know enough to know which way the camera was pointed, and it was pointed away from him. So they did their entire little skit for film while they were standing *Behind* the camera. Brilliant. Just... Brilliant.

As pathetic as it is from my perspective that he didn't even think about which way the camera was pointed, I will choose to believe it was divine intervention. Somebody upstairs is making these people look like the boobs they are.

Yea, I was shocked to see a pro-Trump number sticker on a care out here in Portland yesterday. Brave man. I don't get the sense that GOP Congress members are even remotely aware of how bad it is out here for normal people in the real world. The malicious targeting and property damage aimed at conservatives for exercising free speech rights. I'd guess a HUGE percentage of conservatives don't overtly virtue signal their support of the GOP out of fear of vandalism and becoming the target of assaults and the like.

Sad state of affairs in a country with supposed free speech rights. Same thing about rallies. Whenever conservatives plan rallies out here in Oregon, Antifa shows up with all of their hate and aggression. So --- Shhhhhhhocker -- you don't see many conservative rallies out here, and that's exactly what they want.

Time for new free speech laws, or lawsuits by conservatives until there are, that require police protection of conservatives and the enforcement of assault, vandalism and intimidation charges, and if the police don't do it, create a private action law suit so circizens can sue the shit out of the government.

These liberal-city police departments will undoubtedly grant any Conservative a permit for a rally, but they won't protect the rights of the permit holders. THIS needs to become an actionable civil claim available to conservatives, with city-covered attorneys' fee awards.

----

Yes, yes, yes, BUT the Democrats have invested hundreds of millions, and immeasurable labor hours by the media and interest groups, to make Trump toxic to society. They HAVE to do this, in order to run their insane communist/socialist candidates in 20/20. They're betting that to the extent there still exists any "moderate" democrats in the Progressive party, they'll still vote for "anyone but Trump" in the general and thereby defeat him. And they may pull it off. Sure, Trump has the GOP base, but can he win again on a razor's edge in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, and Arizona? Maybe, but not at all assured.....

They gerrymandered away my rural district, and lumped us into the People's Republic of Boulder years ago, so even less point to being an "R."

I suspect that Kameltoe is the reason they moved up the primary here in CA, although they may have done it just to make California's primary matter, which it never has before.

Of course, this could easily blow up in their faces, as Cali is chock-a-block with rabid leftists, so the candidates will all be trying to outflank each other on the left, leading to awkward problems for them in the general election.

Sadly, that IS a good point. Moreover, there is always that hope among me that a good Republican will win the #2 slot in the primary.

For example, in the last Governor's race here. Monkey wrenching, it would be tempting to vote for Reconquista Antonio Villaraigosa over Gavin Newsom, just to start a gd feud between the "Brown" Demunists on one side and the "Green (Watermelon) and Pink" Demunists on the other.

But I stayed true to principles and went with Travis Allen GOP. Allen lost to John Cox GOPee, but to his immense credit, earnestly stumped for John Cox afterwards.

Call me a coward if you like, but it what it is in the modern world. THIS is what so-called "social justice" is all about. Intimidation and silencing of conservatives, and it works. I'll wager I'm in the majority on these issues, among conservatives. It will continue until the GOP in D.C. wakes the F--K up and passes new laws that allow us recourse against the SJWs. Something simple, like deeming with political beliefs to be included among "the protected cases" in anti-discrimination law would be HUGE.

442 Late, willowed, and doubtless repeating what others have said, but for FFFFFFFFFS, there is no such thing as a "hate crime" in our system.


Pulling a firearm and making threatening statements is, in every jurisdiction, a crime - and I think a serious one, in most. Somewhere in the "assault" category, I think (it's probably been discussed above and I haven't read the thread).


There is no such thing as "hate crime" or "hate speech". There is no such thing as "intersectionality". There is no such thing as "cisgender".


There is no excuse for accepting, adopting, endorsing, assisting, spreading the idiotic crap that has hollowed out our civil society. "Hate crime", as a concept, reflects exactly this problem.

Report: Deep State Operator Rod Rosenstein Finally Leaving the Justice Department

Trump looks very weak and foolish when he keeps these people on, as if he's too afraid to fire their asses.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein plans to leave the Justice Department in mid-March, agency officials told news outlets Monday.

A Justice Department official said that Rosenstein's departure is not related to a controversy surrounding his alleged offer to wear a wire during conversations with President Donald Trump, according to CNN.

Lie.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claimed in an interview that aired Sunday that Rosenstein broached the idea of wearing a wire to the White House in May 2017, days after James Comey was fired as FBI director.

22 Trump looks very weak and foolish when he keeps these people on, as if he's too afraid to fire their asses.

He's kind of penned in by the whole obstruction of justice Mueller thing. Thanks, Sessions. It's looking more and more like Sessions was controlled opposition.

41 Sessions really was protecting all of these people.

I have to think somehow he was compromised or just very, very stupid. It was almost like Sessions was determined to sink Trump for some strange reason.

So many wounds were self-inflicted by Trump (like keeping Sessions and Rosenstein on). Imagine if on just Day 1 Comey had been fired like every single rational person on both sides of the aisle were basically demanding. It would have been a non-event

All the risky moves Trump is willing to take, getting rid of personnel clearly determined to destroy you is a pretty easy call to make.

people outside the Beltway don't give two shits when someone is fired, especially by a new President.

I think when she came out of the closet and decided to become an activist solely centered around who's genitals she wanted to rub against, it did something to her.

They say feminism destroys beauty, I think it's something along those lines. Her sex life has become SO important to her that it's killed her ability to do anything.

Watching her rant about Mike Pence is almost sad.

Almost as bad as the year the Marlins bought up Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes and ended up in dead last and selling everybody that winter. It seemed like they realized they had to rebuild and went all in on it for 2016 and 2017, but then they give way too much money to Eric Hosmer and now they overbid for Machado.

Yep, personnel is policy.

I think Trump is just used to this concept when he ran his business that employees fall in line. That's not how DC works at all.

I also think Trump is way too impressed with resumes. I would be looking at ideology and loyalty.

101 Yes, Trump's biggest weakness is giving his adversaries the benefit of the doubt. And therefore letting things drag out too long. Although he has accomplished a lot, against a lot of opposition. I figure by the end of his second term he'll have acquired the requisite cynicism.

The view that the FBI is an institution of integrity is just a fiction. It was corrupted from the beginning by J. Edgar Hoover. It engaged in turf wars with organized crime which gave it "credibility" beyond belief. What passes for "bad guys" has often been someone's political enemies and innocent people (see Waco and Ruby Ridge). And there are still disinformation TV shows and movies promoting the FBI has a bastion of "integrity". The only thing that has changed is that they, and the media, have become stupider and more transparent in their evil.

Yeah I'm not buying Sessions. He was an early supporter and strong on Trump, I don't buy him flipping suddenly and trying to depose the president under an idiotic fantasy. He'd have actually read the 25th amendment and known it was impossible.

I also think Trump is way too impressed with resumes. I would be looking at ideology and loyalty.

I think he relies exessively on the recommendations of others. In the case of judges, that's working out pretty well because he has good advise there. But for his cabinet he took the advise of a bunch of deep GOPe guys with predictable results.

Also people who work in corporate world for the most part want their company to succeed. If the company fails you're out of a job. Govt is not like that. Trump fails, no biggie plenty of jobs to go around.

It's an entirely different world that Trump can't seem to understand.

Ivanka works at superficial go-girl PR initiatives, or things like prison reform with the President's enthusiastic backing. I remember when people insisted she was persuading Trump to sign the Paris accords, or Israel-Palestinian peace, or some other stupid thing.

To the extent I would blame her for anything, I would more firmly blame the President. But there's nothing beyond out of control spending that merits it, and that is firmly a Congressional problem.

I'd say the odds are low, seeing as how him and Mueller are good friends. Moar Deep State shit. But, better odds than from Sessions, who did pretty much nothing.

Posted by: GnuBreed at February 19, 2019 01:06 PM (Z4rgH)

143 I've heard the theory (here and elsewhere) that RR is a "good" guy.

This theory is predicated on a few things:

1.) The fact that RR shitcanned Comey.

b.) The conjecture that he initiated the Special Counsel to sideline the corrupt conspirators and their investigation already running in the DoJ.

iii.) That none of this has been apparent to onlookers, because they're running this thing by the books, and keeping a lid on all of it.

Now, I can see a lot of flaws in this theory. But I'll focus on the most glaring one: the guy he hired to be SC is a man with a long, rich history of police corruption, specifically as it relates to covering up the crimes of the FBI, and has deep personal and professional ties to Comey.

I can think of a few possible explanations, here:

1.) Everything is as it appears - the coup conspirators settled on firing Comey as the "trigger" for the coup. When instructed to do it, RR complied, and immediately put Mueller in place to carry on and expand the work of Comey. They're both crooked - I rate this explanation "highly likely."

b.) RR is a clean operator himself, but so ragingly incompetent that he hired a corrupt cop who was in the pocket of the man he just fired, and who then assembled a team of Democrat donors and operatives to continue attacking the President - I rate this explanation "very unlikely."

iii.) RR and Mueller are both on Team Trump, and this is all Dimension Eleventy Chess. They put together a team of Dem operatives to attack the President, and to round up and railroad every possible known associate of his. They ran roughshod over the spirit and letter of the law. They destroyed the reputation of their agencies and spurred a crisis of confidence among the American about the rule of law and the role of its enforcers. And they did it all to throw the Deep State off the scent, as they prepared to exonerate Trump and drop the hammer on the corrupt coup perpetrators. I rate this explanation "so fucking preposterous it beggars belief."

I don't know what his reasons are, but he has them. Here's a piece of speculation: If the whole Mueller thing had been cut short with mass firings instead of being allowed to play out to this "never mind" result would there have been (A) a leap to impeach Trump from both Democrats or GOP or (B) both Democrats and GOP would have calmly accepted his assurances that it was a witch hunt and dropped the subject?
