NJ Man Scouted Landmarks For Potential Hezballah Terror Attacks

Foreign terrorist scum are the best of all Americans.

A New Jersey man served as a US-based operative for Hezbollah's terrorism-planning wing for years, scouting landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building for possible attacks, a federal grand jury has alleged.

Alexei Saab, a 42-year-old Lebanon native and naturalized US citizen, was charged in an indictment Thursday with nine offenses, which include providing material support to Hezbollah, the US Justice Department said.

Saab, of Morristown, is in federal custody, awaiting trial in federal court in New York. He was arrested July 9.

He is at least the third American charged since 2017 with being an agent for Hezbollah, an Iranian-linked, Lebanon-rooted Shia Islamic group considered a terrorist organization by the United States.

The Conservative Case for Alexi Saab.

104 Wokemart to stop selling e-cigarettes
https://t.co/sMJbNPNgTk

SJWalmart announced Friday it will stop selling e-cigarettes as federal and state governments crack down on the vaping industry.

"Given the growing federal, state and local regulatory complexity and uncertainty regarding e-cigarettes, we plan to discontinue the sale of electronic nicotine delivery products at all SJWalmart and Sam's Club U.S. locations," a SJWalmart spokesperson said Friday.

"We will complete our exit after selling through current inventory."

106 there is only one solution, we have to hire MORE Muslims in key infrastructure positions, to prove we are not a bunch of Islamophobes ... if we don't submit it only proves what infidels we are, and they will kill more of us haters.


Thanks Prez Bush, for reminding US on 9/12/01 that WE are the real haters. Now that we have jihadists being elected to the house, we finally have a Muslim to remind us how terrible we are as a nation, since the Dems calling us deplorable was not enough. thanks a bunch.

That entry on his page reads: "Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS): Managed a team of 20+ developers for the development and delivery of new releases of NYPD's Domain Awareness System (DAS), including integration with external systems and migration of legacy systems and databases. Responsibilities included, design and technical oversight, managing development activities, risk mitigation, client coordination, UAT and deployment planning, resource management, forecast, budgeting, and process improvement."

He wrote that he worked for a company called Accela in the past and his responsibilities included management of delivery and implementation of Accela Civic Platform for large and strategic clients (State and local government), New York City's dept. of Buildings, States of Massachusetts and Michigan.

Robert Francis "Blotto" O'Rourke: Hey, I've Got a Great Idea. Let's Pay Government Money to Illegal Marijuana Dealers as "Reparations" .

Beto: Let's pay reparations for non-violent marijuana offenders

Yes, reparations for those who have served jail time for nonviolent marijuana charges.

That means at least dealing -- it has long been virtually impossible to go to jail on mere possession.

It's the latest big idea coming out of Robert Francis O'Rourke's presidential campaign.

[Washington Post] The former congressman from Texas would combine a newly regulated marijuana market with restitution for policies that resulted in lengthy prison time for low-level drug crimes. The goal is to see that those who were harmed by the strict "war on drugs" policies of the past can now benefit from the money made in the marijuana business.

"We need to not only end the prohibition on marijuana but also repair the damage done to the communities of color disproportionately locked up in our criminal justice system or locked out of opportunity because of the War on Drugs," O'Rourke said in a statement.

The plan is on his campaign website and it is worth taking a look at, if for no other reason than to see just how far the left is going in their war on the American taxpayer.

Go home, Furry. You're drunk and high. As usual.

112 Beto is a new york billionaire's son in law. All he has to do in life is keep impressing that princess who's the key to all of Daddy's money. That's his only real job.

He's stupid, he has not a brain in his head. He sees all the adulation coming from the far left, and he's decided "yeah Bro!!! I'm gonna give them everything they want!" And so he goes harder and harder and harder left, because the cheering crowd of radicals wants him to, and he's desperate for their praise.

And that leads to scenes like today, where Beto is calling Chuck Schumer gutless and weak on Gun Control. Ok, well of course Schumer is, but that's the leadership on YOUR side, genius, you really think it's a smart move to make EVERYONE hate you?

I watched it expecting there to be some ambiguity. I'm guessing that
Ace has never really been around a spun-up spwack head, because there
is *no* ambiguity.

133 I grew up seeing the cities fall apart in the 70s. I remember how common it was to see kids from 10 to 20 sitting on milk crates on the corners during the day sucking on the pipe.

Then they would break into houses at night and mug little old ladies for cash.

As the cities fell apart, the people who lived in them (mostly black) demanded tougher laws. The war on drugs was about trying to fix the social problems created by the war on poverty.

But the left has a new plan - isolate themselves from the crime and bad schools they created and get elected by giving shit away.

204 I have a serious problem with this proposal, and it has nothing to do with drug law.

1) The laws against marijuana were not unconstitutional. You can argue that they're bad laws or ineffective laws or immoral laws or laws inappropriate for the federal government to consider as opposed to state governments and you may have a point, but they were *not* unconstitutional.

2) Those who violated those laws and were punished for laws did so and were so *at the time that the laws were in place.*

3) There is grandfathering for *new* restrictions, but not for their repeal.

4) "Reparations" for those convicted of drug crimes - or any other crimes that are no longer crimes because a law was changed or repealed - is an insane idea. It would make the state liable after the fact for any change in law that reduces criminality.

This is absolutely batshit insane and counter to rational legal theory. If the law was unconstitutional then it was always wrong from the moment of incept and in that case you could make an argument for restitution for those victimized by an illegal law. A legal law, though, even if changed later, was still legitimate. No restitution is owed in that case and providing it would only result in no laws ever being repealed again and the only changes to law we would ever see would be those that *increase* criminality - the exact opposite of what we should have in a free society.

The few who were convicted for pure possession got short sentences and the issue is moot. The ones in prison with long sentences for possession are the result of plea deals and they were really dealers or worse.

And what about all the people fined up the ass for possession? I have sat through traffic court and seen kids get several thousand dollar fines for paraphernalia after a traffic stop. Do they get their money back? will they be compensated for losing their license? You can't go back and undo these sentences.

His life consists of going on hunting trips, watching some sports, and then about once a month he ventures out and buys some piece of property for $800,000 if someone tells him he should. And I think he is okay at putting all the checks together each month and putting them in the bank.

I managed some stuff for him once upon a time, and he was great to work for, since he never understood anything. His wife was kind of homely but had inherited a huge oil fortune. His life consists of going on hunting trips, watching some sports, and then about once a month he ventures out and buys some piece of property for $800,000 if someone tells him he should. And I think he is okay at putting all the checks together each month and putting them in the bank.

so that's what marrying for money can get ya.

271 It was minus 30 sans wind chill. Some EV owners were lamenting that the range was cut in half or more.

That's the hidden feature of electric cars not mentioned by almost any reviewer or test show.

Every car loses performance and mileage the more weight it has. Your Supercar goes that fast and handles that well because its just you in the car. Add someone else, and its not as good.

But electric cars suffer even more from this. Put passengers in, run the AC, even the radio, put in some luggage or groceries and its a serious reduction in range.

So yeah, MPG in your F-150 goes down from like 7 to 5 when you load it up.

But range in your Tesla goes down precipitously when you put passengers and weight into it, much more than gas powered.

But they don't mention that little bit.

277 The left has this notion that

--Tobacco is "right-wing"
-- Marijuana is "left-wing"

Since their goal is to utterly DESTROY every remnent of old-school conservative all-Amierican culture and replace it with party=approved "radical" "alternative" culture (e.g. Out: Football; In: Women's soccer, etc.), they want to simultaneously BAN and discourage cigarettes in every imaginable way, while PROMOTE and encourage marijuana in every possible way.

They fraudulently frame all this as a "health" issue (when discussing tobacco) abd then flip-flop to a "criminal justice" issue (when discussing marijuana).

The conveniently ignore the fact that marijuana is in many wyas worse for you than tobacco, and also than when you ban or severely restrict anything INCLUDING cigarettes, then there develops an illicit trade in it (as happens in places like prisons and asylums, where there is often an underground economy based on cigarette smuggling).

This has nothing to do with drugs, health or criminal justice reform; it has everything to do with th Culture War, and the left pushing something which they have identified as being part of the leftist spectrum, while banning the "old" American thing they want to replace.

You have a point.

If the federal government were diligent in enforcing the immigration laws, I wouldn't agree, because crime is pervasive, and it can't all be stopped.

But the federal government has not diligently enforced anything, and encourages the lawbreaking to the absolute furthest extent.

Their asses should be held liable. Forget reparations - civil damages awarded by a Court would be sufficient and appropriate. The negligence, nonfeasance and malfeasance rise to the level of culpability, as far as I'm concerned.

338 It said, "Mitch has been in the senate with an annual income of less than $200,000 but his overall worth is $4.5 million. How did a 'public servant' earn so much?"

I mean, with sound financial advice, that seems eminently doable after several decades of making six figures, you know?

Harry Reid has been a politician his whole life and somehow retired with a net worth of something like $10 million. I bet he has family members with crazy high numbers. All sorts of land deals.

McConnells number is not that high, him and his wife both have probably been making a few hundred thousand a year for decades in DC. So maybe $400k a year for 20+ years?

It wouldn't surprise me if a dentist or doctor retires with about the same amount.

Compound interest is very powerful, if you can squirrel only like $5k a year from when you start your career, hitting 7 figures is almost guaranteed in something like S&P500 index fund when you retire.

When pickup trucks became a combination of status symbol and everyday-driver for people, mostly men. Pickup trucks used to suck as daily drivers. As more people bought them for that purpose, they wanted features and luxuries. They got them.

They made a movie about Aileen staring Charlize Theron titled Monster.

I found it weird, because it failed utterly to get me to sympathize with Aileen at all. One man hires her as a prostitute and then beats her. She then kills several other men (not the guy who beat her), including one very nice guy who wanted to help her.

Christina Ricci played Aileen's friend/lover, and she was portrayed negatively for giving Aileen up to authorities.

It was weird.

416 380 What kills me about this year's pickup ads is the bizarre tailgate
features. Because that's the real demand for a pickup: a fancy
multi-part electric tailgate that does all sorts of weird folding and
moving and breaks ten minutes after you load the truck up the first
time.



Who the hell came up with this stuff? What was the design genius who decided what pickups needed was more fancy crap to break?

Right you are. But I wouldn't call the air-cooled versions "a joke." They were very competitive in that category in their time. Porsche is, or used to be, about the driving experience, the sensation of being on the road not above it, about weight to power efficiency, and about a car that tests you and loves to perform the more it performs. My favorite was the mid-80s Carrera with the 3.2. Porsche lost some soul when the went to water-cooled. That pure air-cooled howl at 5000 rpms was unmistakable and incomparable.

457 When you spend $200K on a sports car every mile driven is like $50 of depreciation. So people are afraid to drive them.

I've always bought Porsches close to their flatlined depreciation curve. Usually 5-7 years old. Still pretty new, but old enough to be able to enjoy without freaking out every time it goes outside the garage.

Right now the best buy out there is a 2010-12 Cayman S. You can get one for around 30-35K, they were $75-85K new. And are a hell of a car.

I'm convinced that all those "lane monitors" and "warnings about other cars" are just a test bed for self-drivers, though. They're using stupid gullible tech worshipers to work out the kinks.

But the ads, basically they're selling this to really awful drivers. "Are you so incompetent you try to change lanes without looking? Do you constantly spend time texting and not watching the road? DO we ever have the car for you, bonehead!"

I would agree if this were 2009 instead of 2019. The 911 has become way too big since the 987.2. The 996 was a little bigger than the 993. The 987 was a little bigger than the 996 but still OK. Then BOOM the 991 blew up. I was shocked the first time I said in a 991, it was massive. No longer a small nilble sports car, it's a touring 2 door coupe.

I am completely serious. If you add up the years of life wasted in prison by people who only wanted to help someone feel good, the War on Drugs is entirely comparable to the Holocaust.
****

"People who only wanted to help someone feel good" is the wierdest way I've ever heard to describe someone who deals drugs for a living.

Most of those don't really care why someone wants their product, they recognize its a product in high demand and the risk is astronomical, but the reward is very lucrative if you can move enough product.

There's nothing altruistic about it. At *best* its flat Greed. And while I don't automatically hate a person for Greed, very few drug dealers leave it at that.

NPC Critics Hail "Rambo: Last Blood" as a Triumphant Call for a Border Wall

Well, I mean, they're not hailing it so much as resorting to their typical tactic of "reviewing a movie" according to what impact it will have on elections.

In the film, Rambo goes up against a Mexican cartel involved in both drug trafficking and human trafficking -- which is a weird term. He's up against men who enslave underage girls into forced prostitution.

These are real things that happen in the real world.

But leftists in Hollywood insist these are fictions, just as they shriek that MS-13 is a fantasy concocted by Trump.

The new film's signature sin, though, is Trump-style "racism."

The official Variety review calls the film a "cruel and ugly showcase of xenophobic carnage."

"Screenwriters Matthew Cirulnick and Stallone adopt the racist view of Mexicans as murderers, drug dealers and rapists, devoid of cultural context or exceptions, beyond the "independent journalist" (Paz Vega) keeping tabs on their whereabouts."

It's a shame "Last Blood" concocted vicious Mexican cartels out of thin air of the purposes of this movie.


Oh, wait.

This critic also has the sads that these evil cartel types, who force innocents into sex trafficking, get their comeuppance.


Yes, but they deserve it, one might argue. This is the reductive one-man-against-the-world reasoning by which Rambo has always operated, and I don't buy it.

Of course, vigilantes are often problematic to film critics, especially if they happen to be both white and male.

Suddenly, the infamous wall along the U.S.-Mexico border seems inadequate -- less in containing the cartels than in protecting them from Rambo’s brand of vigilante justice.

A Trump reference in a film review? Who saw that coming?

I unsubbed from Grace Randolf yesterday over this bullshit. I just got sick of each and every one of her movie reviews being one third (or more) about "diversity issues" and how the movie "positively or negatively portrayed the LGBT community."

You're supposed to be reviewing movies, not the GOP. Enough. Do your actual jobs, NPCs.

Or Learn to Code.

This guy, a lifelong fan of the Rambo series, has a review I trust. He says the movie is definitely not the best in the series -- that honor belongs to either the first First Blood or the 2008 reboot Rambo -- but it's good.

His one major criticism is about pacing and tone. The movie is determined to present a depressive, "grounded" kind of feel, and imitates the tone and pacing of Unforgiven and Logan to accomplish this. He thinks the movie feels longer than it is.

But, that aside, he says it's very good.

I don't understand people who inject politics into art like this as a reviewer.

Not only am I watching movies to try and escape from the real world, but I'm trying to open myself up to what the artist has to say. It's less about what I care about and more about what the artist cares about.

It's like the worst review Ebert ever wrote. It was for The Lives of Others. He loved it. It's a great movie. However...

He inserted W. into the review. He said the movie, about Stasi in East Germany, was actually about George W. Bush. It was the dumbest piece of tripe he ever wrote.

Yes but in Sicaro the villain was middle aged white guy. And Breaking Bad was a giant push for socialized health care.

It's who do you focus on in your fiction. Which real world thing do you bring awareness to?

The cartels? They're not a real threat. They portray Mexicans as bad. They can't be used.

White conservative men? They're a real threat. Acceptable.

All subservience to a political message, which makes art significantly less interesting overall.

Tangent: I rewatched The Ghost and the Darkness recently, and that movie could never get made today. Why? White savior in Africa. Colonialism not portrayed as completely evil. Killing wildlife. The main character doesn't atone for evils of capitalism.

That Grace chick looks like one of those Supermarionation puppets from Captain Scarlet. Is she real?

Rambo used to be a damaged Vietnam vet, and was kinda used to go after the US govt in First Blood. Dennehy was evil, Crenna was borderline evil. It was that twist and tension that made it such a good gotdamn movie. The scene where Rambo steals the truck and kicks out the Pvt driving it, that gave us the humanity of Rambo that we didn't necessarily know about. He still was an enigma and remained so. Why doesn't Sly get the credit he deserves...

These idiots are so current year it's pathetic.

In my mind Ukraine was always going to be the tipping point. Biden's corruption is just the tip of the iceberg, the information that put Manafort away came from Ukraine too.

I don't think Trump had any choice other than to get this ball rolling and it just so happens that Biden is in the crosshairs.

And if Biden was involved we are in the Oval Office.

230 I was being rhetorical in my comments about Sicario and Breaking Bad. I think the truth is, Hollywood knows how bad the border is, but for PC reasons they can't admit this. However, the almighty buck can often allay PC fears, and Hollywood knows there is a lot of drama (and a truth that most people know about) at the border. Still, it must be difficult to make a movie about drugs and cartels and then go around lambasting conservatives who point out that drugs and cartels at the border are a problem.

Now, if Apollo Creed or Clubber Lang show up in Rambo it will be worth going to see on that alone.

I heard some local radio host saying that he's seen them for $385 or so. I haven't, but I don't doubt that the deals are out there. They're ridiculously easy to build, too, and you could probably go the armslist.com route and buy a receiver locally in accordance with state and federal laws, and that's the ideal way to do it.

That said, it's hard to beat a $500 Ruger or S&W if you just want one right now.

A 2007 6920 went for $1400'ish, retail, and sold for $1800, pre-obama, secondary market.

Ten years later, they were going for much less retail and secondary market, while the market was saturated with $350-$500 entry level ARs.

I believe that was part of it, and I believe another part of it is PR spin.

292 It does feel like Trump would rather face Warren than Biden.

I can't really argue with that, but I still think Biden would be a disaster of a general election candidate. Warren too, though.

--

I suspect there's some degree of "the best swordsman doesn't fear the second best swordsman, he fears the person who just picked up a sword" going on here, if that's the case.

Warren strikes me as very risk-averse. She's not going to take risks in a campaign. She's going to try not to say anything wild. But Biden is a wild card. His craziness could make it harder to prepare for. Even if it probably backfires, there's a chance something he says or does sticks.

The end game is a uniformity of narrative.

The narrative is driven by politics.

Their politics are: diversity is our strength, open borders is love, white supremacy is our greatest domestic threat.

Films/shows/theater/books must reinforce that narrative. From that flows the overarching narrative: Trump = Hitler/KKK/evil.

Any film that depicts Mexican drug cartels as a violent threat violates all three of those things AND endorse Trump.

First off, the US has yet to elect a Presidential ticket with a woman on the ballot in either position - #1 or #2. Both parties have tried the #2 position and failed. The dems tried the #1 position and also failed, and I truly think Cankles was helped by Rapey Bill being her (official) husband. The thought in many men's minds subconsciously was that, well she might be in the office but he's right next door with the interns in case he's needed.

TRUE (even w/o 'loophole')-

My state only allows one sudafed purchase a month. Didn't know that until I got declined. Told pharmacist that rule would only allow a two week supply at manufacturer's dosage a month (regardless of product, they all work out the same). She actually broke out a calculator to fact check my ass... fact. "Well, that is kind of messed up, but it's the rule..."

We lived in an HOA development one time. I got a nasty gram to paint my mailbox, because some (a quarter sized spot) paint was chipped. I went to the local Hechingers (pre Home depot days in NoVa, and get off my lawn) and bought the pre-approved HOA color, and painted the mailbox.

A lady showed up the next day yelling that I had painted it the wrong color. I grabbed the paint can with the HOA approved color listed on it and showed it to her. She harumphed and stalked off.

We moved away and will never live in an HOA community again. Insufferable busybodies.

Texas has eased up a little bit - I used to have to sign some logbook anytime I bought sudafed - but there's still limits.

I used to live in an HOA...
They changed to allowable paint colors/rules after I painted my house. They had a color book with ~20 various schemes you had to paint your house. All off-white except two that had a baby poop brown and what I call 'pumkin spice'. I just quoted their color book back to them,

Base/trim: 'Peach Cream' (what I called it)
Trim/base: 'Pumpkin Spice'
Accent/front door: Dark leather

I made the base 'Pumpkin Spice' whole house. Gutters and soffit the light off-white 'peach cream'...

My house was at the "T" where almost everyone coming into the sub division saw it. Within a month three others houses copied mine... then they changed the rules to require the base color to be the off-white. So four of had glorious orangey pumkin spice house and everybody else had off-white.

Then they got pissed at me when I painted my mailbox post pumpkin too. Sorry, rules say mailbax post is to match the house or be 'beige'... Then the shit really started...

I have my own reasons for a wall, and it has nothing to do with Stallone movies. I suspect a lot of Americans are not that many degrees of separation from actual Mexican violence and don't need films to tell them what's what.

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

"Hey look, everybody, the progs have invented a couple of new terms. The first is 'BROWN-face'. It's kind of like "blackface", but its use is reserved for prog politicians in order to minimize any potential damage to their careers or reputations. See, 'brownface' is not as bad as 'blackface'. This will come as good news to Justin Trudeau. You don't ever want to be caught in 'blackface'. But if there's a photo of you in 'brownface', hey, it's all good. If you're a prog. Republicans, needless to say, will never be caught in brownface, only in the blackest of blackface.

"The second term the progressives have just made up is 'credible accusation'. It's been used extensively in the recent media coverage of those two NY Times hack reporters who set out to smear Brett Kavanaugh by resurrecting bogus charges that didn't pass muster the first time around. In order to add rhetorical 'oomph' to the old, previously discarded accusations to make them look like new accusations, they got magically turned into 'credible accusations.' So, you might ask, what is the difference between an 'accusation' and a 'credible accusation'? Well, a 'credible accusation' is much better than a standard, run-of-the-mill accusation. How so? Well, a 'credible accusation' is one that you should believe, that ought to be believed. Why? Because it's 'credible'.

"No one has ever said why exactly these accusations have suddenly become 'credible'. Particularly since no new evidence has been introduced and none of the principal actors actually remember anything. It's kind of like the 2004 election when the media kept referring to the Swift Boat veterans' testimony about the character of John Kerry as 'discredited', as in 'the discredited Swift Boat vets', although I never saw any of the actual discrediting that supposedly took place. They were just assuming what they needed to prove. Or, more precisely, they wanted you to assume that what they needed to prove had already been proven. That, since they had used the word 'discredited', it had actually been 'discredited' (even though it really hadn't).

"What it boils down to is that the latest round of accusation against Kavanaugh are 'credible' because a couple of progressive hack NY Times reporters say so.

"Progressive definitions of words are like progressive definitions of gender, i.e. fluid, amorphous, and, basically, whatever suits their purposes at the time. It's just rhetorical sleight-of-hand."

Read the parody of this on Babylon Bee last night without knowing the back story. At the time I thought it was just an amusing send up of progressives. Now with the rest of the story so to speak I'm sort of horrified the direction we are heading.

143 Follow up - someone mentioned yesterday as feast of St Gennaro St. Januarius . . . from catholic herald UK
===
The miracle of liquefaction of the blood of early Church martyr St. Januarius took place Thursday in Naples.

The blood was shown to have liquefied shortly after 10am during Mass in Naples Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary

St. Januarius, or San Gennaro in Italian, the patron of Naples, was a bishop of the city in the third century, whose bones and blood are preserved in the cathedral as relics. He is believed to have been martyred during Diocletian persecution.

The reputed miracle is locally known and accepted, though has not been the subject of official church recognition. The liquefaction usually happens at least three times a year; Sept 19, the saints feast day, the Saturday before the first sunday in may, and December 16 the anniversary of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

During the miracle, the dried, red-colored mass confined to one side of the reliquary becomes blood that covers the entire glass. In local lore, the failure of the blood to liquefy signals war, famine, disease or other disaster.

The blood did not liquefy in December 2016. (Don't remember a specific disaster, do you???)

The vial has sometimes changed upon the visit of a pope.

On March 21, 2015, Pope Francis met with priests, religious and seminarians at the cathedral and gave a blessing with the relic.

The local Bishop then received the vial back from the pope and noted that the blood had partially liquefied.

So there's that . . .

I got up on the high dive, and suddenly the lifeguard is right behind me, sniffing my process and offering to teach me how to dive. Then he started calling me "Esther", so I jumped in the water to get away from him.

I remember it like it was yesterday, mostly because he wasn't wearing swim trunks.

Later, as I was getting in my ride to leave the pool, Biden ran out to my car with a chain. He said Delaware was really a southern state and he was going to wrap the chain around my Ukrainium unless I deposited $166,000. per month into his son's bank account.

The next thing I know, they name the pool after the freak. That's how it really went down. My word as a Pop.

Jamie Margolin, 17, who co-founded the youth-led Zero Hour movement on environmental action, told lawmakers that, "the only thing that will save us is a whole new era."

"The most frustrating thing is that the U.S. government can't even begin to imagine the massive political shift that has to happen in order for us to solve this issue. The politics just hasn't been invented yet," she said before the committees.

"Solving the climate crisis goes against everything that our country was unfortunately built on: colonialism, slavery and natural resource extraction," she added. "This is why the youth are calling for a new era altogether."

The reason is that the predictions were the Yelling Fire in a Theater and were meant to panic the politicians and enough people to get laws passed that put a large part of the economy under the control of the commie/socialists and lead to world government due to the expanse of the "problem".

But too many predictions failed and too many so called proofs turned out to be lies.

Frankly I'm amazed that it didn't succeed because we do tend to panic. I think it was the size of the grift that stopped it. The pols just weren't going to give away that much power/money that they couldn't control.

If they'd approached it incrementally, they might have succeeded. Think on that for a while.

There's been other scientific lies that have been perpetrated on the public and this failure of the Climate Alarmists has caused some scientists to do a review of a couple of them.

Jamie Margolin, 17, who co-founded the youth-led Zero Hour movement on environmental action, told lawmakers that, "the only thing that will save us is a whole new era."

"The most frustrating thing is that the U.S. government can't even begin to imagine the massive political shift that has to happen in order for us to solve this issue. The politics just hasn't been invented yet," she said before the committees.

"Solving the climate crisis goes against everything that our country was unfortunately built on: colonialism, slavery and natural resource extraction," she added. "This is why the youth are calling for a new era altogether."

The exact symmetry of this charge with what Biden actually did (and the lummox actually bragged about it to an audience) causes me smell a rat.

It's funny, because I don't even think this should be a big deal in a sane world. It's a costume party, for goodness sake. But, they made these rules, so they need to live by them.

Apparently Trudeau is a bigtime woke/PC scold. For example, he's corrected reporters on things like saying "it's personkind" not "mankind." Constantly accusing others of racism, bigotry, sexism, homophobia, Islamaphobia, etc.

I think the keyword is young. Youth have a predisposition to believe the world revolves around them and their experiences. The other aspect of youth is being impressionable. It has been impressed upon them since a young age, and I would say late Gen X to the entire millennial generation has been impressed upon, including by media to believe that AGW is accepted wisdom.

It goes beyond science to religion and dogma. AGW is oh so slightly different from the past climate doomsday scenarios such as ice age or ozone hole, so as to be distinguishable in their minds, to the point they don't feel compelled to think about it critically, which is a skill which is beat out of the indoctrinated at an early age.

With the passage of time, and with help understanding the problems of AGW theory, I believe more and more people will be awakened to the gaslighting and the grand lie that has been beat into them. And those who do so will likely have a skepticism of collectivism unlike almost any other in history.

I do. The job of PM requires a person of maturity and sound decision-making skills. Trudeau has neither of those today, yesterday or 20 years ago. Therefore it is unlikely that he will ever have either in the next 4 years which is the time frame that is important right now.

46 On the surface it's a simple picture of a lonely house beside some train tracks. Exacty like the tile says, but the way it's presented is very moody.

It's a lonely house. No background. No trees or shrubbery. No people. Not even a cloud in the sky. The viewer is at a low angle looking up, so the house almost looms over us. The tracks cut through the lower canvas, separating us from the house. There is no sign of life in the house, no lights in the windows. The track seem rusty, like they haven't been used in a while. The color of the rails is also used in the brick chimney, connecting the two images.

Probably the most fascinating part about this painting is that Hopper was able to present this mood all the while using bright, clean colors. Because of this, the work is even more foreboding to me because it looks deceptive.

Houses by railroad tracks almost always look strange even though railroads determined where a lot of towns were in the pre interstate highway days.
Posted by: Captain Hate

Railroad tracks, like roads, often mimic already popular, shortest routes.

It's why mansions are often found by busy, multi-lane roads. When the mansion was built, the road was probably one lane at best and farther removed, though it did have 'street frontage'.

Many historic houses in northern Delaware are like this, and the street names reflect the more famous farmers/settlers that lived there.

"Always reluctant to discuss himself and his art, Hopper simply said, 'The whole answer is there on the canvas.' Hopper was stoic and fatalistic - a quiet introverted man with a gentle sense of humor and a frank manner. Hopper was someone drawn to an emblematic, anti-narrative symbolism, who 'painted short isolated moments of configuration, saturated with suggestion'. His silent spaces and uneasy encounters 'touch us where we are most vulnerable', and have 'a suggestion of melancholy, that melancholy being enacted'... Conservative in politics and social matters (Hopper asserted for example that 'artists' lives should be written by people very close to them'), he accepted things as they were and displayed a lack of idealism. Cultured and sophisticated, he was well-read, and many of his paintings show figures reading."

Sounds like a good egg. Not one of his contemporary or our modern-day agitprop types.

132 Hopper often offers an interesting viewpoint and this one is no exception. Instead of concentrating on the house (which is 'interesting' by itself) the strong, dark railroad and bed is the focus. The deep reddish-brown of the road bed is like a dark slash (threatening?), harsh and solid, across the image of the softer lines of the sunlit house. It's a little disturbing.

This painting makes me start thinking of story lines or at least situations. Here is a handsome, Victorian-era home with its appointments and comforts, looking out over sunlit grassy expanses, waiting for horse drawn carriages to bring visitors. It's away from the clamor of the city. Then comes the intrusion and disruption of the railroad, expressed so strongly in the painting. What happened to the people who lived there? Did they leave? Did they put up with the disruption of their lives? Does anyone still live there? There's no indication that the house is in use.

The effectiveness of Hopper's painting for me is the way it produces an immediate emotional response and then the story thoughts.

The only "innovation" we really need IMO (aside from those problems with no real solution yet) is a system to custom-tailor meds to the individual using them. Right now individual variation causes a lot of uncertainty in drug effectiveness and side effects, having some way of countering that would be ideal.

Of course it would also have the potential for privacy violation Google could only dream of, so perhaps I should be more careful what I wish for.

It's not the race of their new neighbors, it's their clannish, alien, non-assimilating culture. And yes, that complaint has been used against just about every group of immigrants, but there was pressure to conform to the culture at large back then. Now, with the internet and the religion of multiculturalism there is no need to become part of the fabric of the society in which you live.

I didn't see the video because (CNN) I'd be interested to know where it was filmed. Trump came closer to winning the state than any President since Nixon. There's a lot of disgruntled dems in the state and most rural MN is solidly red. People tend to think because idiots like Brogudishu got elected that it's all like that. The district she's from is like another world. It includes little Mogudishu but also the most liberal enclave ever. Mpls area would elect Anyone with a D after the name. A dead Jeff Epstein would get elected there. There's many dems who are either staying home or in secret voting for Trump. Why do you think they are so desperate with all the whistleblower shit now?

I can easily see DJT making a hard push for NH, NV, NM, and MN in 2020 - particularly if the donks nominate anyone other than Gropey. Would make the donk nominee have to play defense in at least 3-states that should be reasonably solid so they have less money to spend in PA and FL.

YES!! This 1000X. Immigration has always been you come here, you become American. It took a generation usually, but the progress was always towards becoming American and un-becoming the Old Country.

Today it's the opposite. It's come here, hate America, demand special treatment, don't learn English and expect everyone here to change for you.

Very true. We've had other waves of immigrants, and while there's some initial adjustment for everyone on all sides, it works out. We have a huge Hmong population. I have no problem with them, they mostly work hard, and while still celebrating their heritage and customs seem to actually like America. These other ingrate bastards? Not so much. They are by in large the rudest group of people I have ever witnessed. This state rolled out the red carpet for these pricks, they have ZERO interest in assimilating.

For any phone customer support job type job, bilingual is a must. I've noticed when calling and amazingly getting a US based person to talk to, it's always someone with an accent.

A reason why many homes had few or no closets was due to taxes on the number of rooms.

many row homes, including 'pepperboxes' were narrow and went straight back, because the taxation was by street frontage.

I don't know how much to blame the Somalis vs the local white liberals. I've been reading more about how Ilhan intimidates that community and it's effing terrifying. Her enforcers literally go door to door threatening people. It's literally the effing mafia all over again, and no one seems interested in clearing the warlord criminality away so those immigrants who came here for legit reasons can enjoy the rights they're entitled to -- also so the rest of us can be free of that criminal menace. One of her enforcers is now running for office in Somalia, where he can eff people up badly if their American relatives fail to support Ilhan. It is beyond sickening that the US AG was informed of all this and refused to look into any of it.

It's very similar to what just about any over-controlling stage-mother has done when pushing their kids into show business, but in this case it's especially wicked since she's exacerbating her daughters illness in a bid for personal glory.

and then she hooked up with a political movement desperate to use her for it's own ends, and to shower the mother with even more money and attention in exchange for selling her disabled daughter's soul to them.

Yeah, I don't get all the sympathy for her "disability."

She's a 16yo of normal+ intellect. Look at her and listen to her when she speaks... she knows the score. She's figured a successful crybully grift, and is enjoying the hell out of it.

Her autism worries me less than her high functioning sociopathy.

Her enforcers literally go door to door threatening people. It's literally the effing mafia all over again, and no one seems interested in clearing the warlord criminality away so those immigrants who came here for legit reasons can enjoy the rights they're entitled to -- also so the rest of us can be free of that criminal menace. One of her enforcers is now running for office in Somalia, where he can eff people up badly if their American relatives fail to support Ilhan. It is beyond sickening that the US AG was informed of all this and refused to look into any of it.

283 I love Victorian homes. There are many by me and some have been restored magnificently, but sadly, many others have bee butchered or torn down.

The originals usually had the kitchen and help's quarters in the basement. Most had dumbwaiters. They are filled with smallish rooms with specific purposes, like the music room, sitting room, gentlemen's parlous (for smoking,) etc. and usually a fireplace on each level.

The best renovations I have seen move the kitchen to the first floor and knock down just a couple of walls to make for fewer but larger rooms. Same goes for upstairs where bedrooms were small and had no closets, just hooks on the wall.

I'm fine with seasoned food, the hotter the better, and with crawfish, crab, and shrimp -- when prepared by someone else, and eaten indoors in the air conditioning. The time-honored tradition of sitting outside in nasty warmth to crack apart these greasy critters is like eating while doing an oil change.

I personally think it's just a socially-sanctioned way for grownups to play with their food.

I remember back in the 70s or 80s reading that smallpox had been eradicated, except for samples kept in a couple of laboratories for research. I thought, "Eradicated. Riiight."

294 I love Victorian homes. There are many by me and some have been restored magnificently, but sadly, many others have bee butchered or torn down.

The originals usually had the kitchen and help's quarters in the basement. Most had dumbwaiters. They are filled with smallish rooms with specific purposes, like the music room, sitting room, gentlemen's parlous (for smoking,) etc. and usually a fireplace on each level.

The best renovations I have seen move the kitchen to the first floor and knock down just a couple of walls to make for fewer but larger rooms. Same goes for upstairs where bedrooms were small and had no closets, just hooks on the wall.
Posted by: IrishEi at September 20, 2019 10:37 AM


Agreed. We have a lot of very well preserved/updated Victorian stock where I now live. Just missed renting a stunning one by a matter of weeks. I'm still annoyed about that. Wound up in a nice 18th C colonial, though, so it's all good.

When we live in Ohio, we bought a house built in 1869. It will be around in 2169, but in a lot of ways it was a pain in the patoot. We never had enough money on hand to get it fixed up properly. Only when we sold it did we have enough cash to make some renovations and upgrade the wiring.

Also drafty, 1940's plumbing, electric and heat, and generally in need of $100K plus in updates and repairs when my folks bought it in 1976 - money they never, ever had.

322 The one emotion that a movie can make me feel that I am most appreciative of is sadness.

I don't mean, "We're gonna kill a dog to get you crying," but actors, writers, and directors creating characters strong enough for me to actually invest in them and to see them fall apart convincingly.

It's hard to make me sad, and I appreciate it when a movie can do that.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, The Winter Soldier with a new arm at September 20, 2019 10:35 AM (5eTMF)

Happiness and joy are powerful emotions, but sadness is on a whole other level. Sadness is visceral. It's us at our most vulnerable and alone. Everyone feels sad, even depressed, but in our sadness we feel like we're the only sad ones in the world. When an artist is able to produce that feeling in me, especially in a work like this, i take special notice.

And you can thoroughly screw up an old house frame by mixing modern improvements.

Those homes worked well, preservation-wise, because they were fairly drafty. Moisture got in, but it got back out.

Seal it up with modern vapor barriers and what-not in the wrong way and you can start the clock on mold and mildew. I think those problems are probably mostly addressed if you simultaneously add an HVAC system.

You joke about the haunting but I once did a project (an old mill) where everybody that walked into the building swore it was haunted. It got to the point where you only went into it in groups of 2 or more. Even had the ghosts try to drop a masonry wall on me one day. They missed, but not by much.

Also drafty, 1940's plumbing, electric and heat, and generally in need of $100K plus in updates and repairs when my folks bought it in 1976 - money they never, ever had. "

Speaking of Amazon, the bulk of their money comes from "cloud" services (ie they store your stuff on their servers). Apparently there was a board meeting in which the company told the retail side that they need to make more money. So they were ordered to make some changes none of which is good for consumers or especially authors like me.

They're going to start pushing big company and high profit items over others. When you do a search for a book, you'll get major publishers first no matter what you look for, then self pubs several pages later. Not enough sales, you see.

438 As to cloud computing, what this probably means is that MS will now have a monopoly on the O & G Bizness requirements. BUT in the case that MS wants to drop them, the O&G Bizness is big enough and wealthy enough that a good profit could be made by any group that wanted to set up a cloud business provider that only catered to oil and gas biz, and nothing else. A lot of that business is already industry specific. (But my bet is that MS will be happy to hang onto those profits)

Most of which will be powered by burning coal, natural gas, or splitting uranium atoms at the other end of the wire. And the electric vehicles themselves are built of metal refined from ore by energy from coal or petroleum, and plastic, made from petroleum, and ride on rubber tires made from petroleum.

The Morning Report - 9/20/19

notzeekidz.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is here so let's just dive right in. Nothing really new in the NY Times' orchestrated smear campaign to both oust Justice Kavanaugh and implicitly threaten the entire judiciary. There is this outstanding expose by the invaluable Discover the Networks website on the revolting Maizie Hirohito, the daughter of a cheap Yokohama child-pimp and anti-American fiend who has openly called for the Justice's removal from office.

On to the other closely related subject of the attempt to overthrow the 2016 Presidential election. The latest is this absolutely idiotic claim of an ex-staffer coming forward as a whistleblower, stating that Trump talked with a foreign leader on the telephone - shocking! - and that he allegedly either promised some quid pro quo or revealed sensitive information. So incensed was this whistleblower that he/she/xer/Xuxa contacted the IG. Naturally, the "sources" for the National Laughingstock, aka the Washington Post who are pimping this dreck are unnamed and spoke on condition of anonymity. Of course they did. Even worse than this is OrangeManBad's taking to Twitter to call this total bullshit for what it is: total bullshit.

Meanwhile, a mere seven years ago, we have the ex-President caught on a hot open microphone (no, that's not a menu item at the diner) as he spoke with Russian foreign minister Dmitri Medvedev to "tell Vladimir [Putin] I'll have more flexibility after the election." That "flexibility" was to severely cripple or dismantle our nuclear deterrent, without suffering political consequences owing to being in his second term. But you see, this verified and confirmed borderline treasonous behavior was described by the aforementioned cat-box liner as merely "political sniping."

Meanwhile, despite the pantsing of the Cutty Sark mainsail-sized pants of Jerry Nadler by Corey Lewandowski, the impeachment/non-impeachment circus goes on, further dragging down the Democrats' already dim prospects for 2020. Nancy Palsi knows this and her bug eyes are bugging out even more, indicative of the fact that she has indeed lost all control of the Democrats in the House. Lastly, the chutzpocrisy of the day belongs to four-eyed fascist Andrew McCabe. See you at your arraignment, fuck-face (please G-d).

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

14 WRT the US building a coalition for after the Saudi attack:

We've sold I can't even guess how many billions of dollars worth of arms and equipment, and yet there needs to be a coalition for those Wahhabi fucksticks to defend themselves? They were directly responsible for the 9/11 attack; let them defend themselves.

22 I got called a "neocon" last night for disagreeing with the president's posture on Iran. I made cogent, substantive arguments. I used small words and examples. I even offered to draw it in crayon on a cocktail napkin. The retort was still as hominems and pathos pleas.

We've become everything we despise if this is he posture we assume- that is, disagreement = disloyalty.

25 It only takes a sim[ole majority in the House to level impeachment charges, but it takes 2/3 majority in the Senate to actually convict and they do not even hold a simple majority in the Senate. Its not going to happen for Trump or Kavanagh.

31 on the economy check out this op-ed in the l.a. times by greg autry, one of the architects with peter navarro of trump's trade policy with china especially:

"president trump's trade policy is working, but you'd never know that from media reports"

via freerepublic

excellent and recommended.

We're not building a coalition for shit. It's a ruse and another negotiating tactic. Iran doesn't believe it. Even the Euro trash doesn't believe it. They just like it because they ultimately know nothing will come of it and it buys more talk.

37 The green card scam really pisses me off. We ask kids to get STEM degrees, they do, and then the jobs go to someone from India or a Mohommedan.

The tech companies get to pay less (as they hold the job and the right to be in the US). These people remit the money back to their homes and never invest in housing, infrastructure, and becoming a citizen.

OH YEAH GF Sen Lee of Utah. I hope your magic drawers fail.

38 Yes, Colt has suspended making the AR-15 which I thought they had already done. There are too many people competing with them for this market at much lower prices. Plus they have lost the military sales to a competitor.
