Morning Thread (3-10-2015)

Rumor has it that Hillary Clinton is considering actually lying to our faces about her emails.

It's 1996 all over again.

1 I am stunned by the prospect of Hilxary lying to us! There must be global warming, or Jewzzz involved, or G.W. did it!

I have NRO article open about Clintons. It's not flattering.

It's time for the two of them to STHU & go away!

6 The White House "backtracks" on Barky's statement about Hillary's emails.

Apparently, the SCOD sent and received emails from Hillary's private account.

Shocking, I know.

8 Hot new thing in Istanbul: androgynous male belly dancers, says WSJ. There, haters. You've got your answer about Moderate Islam Icism. Turns out, women weren't allowed to do the belly dance until after the Ottomans fell. Male dancers are part of the noble Ottoman conservative culture, don't you know. It's back.

(1)Did Hollywood ever distort noble Ottoman culture, at all, do you think?
(2)Lawrence of Arabia, bitchez.

In Big Tent news:

Vulnerable House Republican Illinois Rep. Robert Dold continues to inch closer to the left end of his partys spectrum for political survival.

He was one of just three House Republicans to vote against a repeal of President Barack Obamas health care law in February. In January, he was one of 26 Republicans to vote against defunding Obamas Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. On Tuesday, Dold signed on to co-sponsor the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act. The bill would expand background checks for all firearm purchases and it is endorsed by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Well, the GOP will get him back in line.

"Seeking to bolster Dolds chances, the National Republican Congressional
Committee added Dold to its Patriot Program, which provides fundraising
and strategic help to the most vulnerable GOP House members."

Or not.

Exactly. At this point, we can do nothing but admit the obvious and that our efforts at internal reform have failed, and the GOPe retains control. I think it may be too late in the game to worry about ousting them.

Well, here you go. Shit we had to read in college 40-some years ago:

http://tinyurl.com/o844qmu

"Twentieth Century Crisis in Values," an honors seminar, was co-taught by the priest in charge of the Newman Center. He's a major theologian now, probably headed for sainthood eventually, and he not only assigned this material but believes in it.

It was certainly a step in my spiritual journey, I can tell you.

63 F**k, I've spent all night arguing with some "international law student" (https://twitter.com/CEs_Mustache) who declared that any informal agreement with Iran by Obama is binding upon any future administration and the Congress because "international law" declares that any agreement between leaders is binding no-matter-what.

How does this:

or this:

or this:

Actually prohibit a future administration from disagreeing with future administrations?

This idjit declares that the president and make binding agreements under international law that restrict all future administrations or Congress!

Catholicism, in the large, needs to realize that in the Leftist fantasyworld that they want to create, there will be no Church. The State will be the Church. It will be the mother and the father, and everything else to everyone. It is never anything to them but a competing power structure to be abolished, whether by confrontation or infiltration.

66 I just discover, much to my surprise, I live in a Federally designated Food Dessert. There are at least 5 grocery stores within 2 miles of my house and yet, apparently, much of our neighborhood is suffering obesity from living such an enormous distance form fresh veggies. (which, get this, makes no sense at all) As it turns out, the bar is pretty low. You only have to have a high percentage (undefined) of residents without access to a car, which we meet thanks to the numerous apartments with 3 families of illegals in each unit. Also you only have to be 1/2 mile form a store, about the width of my residential neighborhood

I'm wondering what Fedral goodies I will be eligible for. I have no doubt the illegals will be getting something, once they are officially New Americans. I want my share of the loot.

"As long as you can go in some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm than it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it is easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable, as long as that's the case, we're going to continue to see unnecessary violence."


for the love of all that's holy: a "clip" is a short scene out of a movie or tv show. It's a "magazine" dumbass.

and I don't recall having to have a background check to buy an onion.

And how many of those ghetto firearms are being legally purchased?

For a former community organizer, President Elitist knows jack shit about the workings of the inner-city. There is an entire off-the-books, black market ghetto economy. And you can bet that the gunz are a part of that economy.

88 no, the Hillary thing reminds me of 1993-94.
First, we found out that while Hillary was gallumphing around the country accusing the pharm industry of price gouging and excess profits, it came out she had money in a private fund that had sold pharm stocks short. When she was asked why she didn't have her money in a blind trust, she replied that she wasn't a federal employee and didn't need to do so.
Then, we got the Hillary health care commission. When someone asked who was on the commission, as federal law required, we were told the law had an exemption for commissions had only had federal employees (or maybe government employees) as members. So how do you know if all the commission members are gov't employees if you can see the list? Oh, and all of a sudden Hillary was a gov't employee (thank you, judge James Buckley.)
This is the same issues with canckles-at-canckles-dot-com. She can say she released all the emails but we have no way of knowing what was there to start with. And when it turned out that the Hillary health care commission had a lot of non-gov't employees, the response was, well, it really wasn't a commission, it was really just an informal network of study groups.
Expect people like Carville and Chris Hayes to fight for Hillary to the bitter end.

OK then, gun thread. I recently bought a 9mm pistol in hopes that it could become my good, low-cost carry gun. I haven't had time to check it out yet, but assuming it runs reliably, I'm now having doubts about the wisdom of getting a CC permit for it.

Given the true nature of our government as recently revealed, a CC permit could just mark me for confiscation soon.

Hillary broke the law. A felony. She is unfit to be President.

Or, is she above the law? The elite rich, and politically connected woman who cannot be expected to obey laws. Laws are for the rest of the people to consider, you know, the little people.

171 I sometimes help an older widowed neighbor with stuff around the home, and transportation during recovery from a recent fall.

She is on the Board of an organization which assists deserving female students with college tuition.

So yesterday in the car, I asked her how the Board was going to respond when a transgendered individual applies for consideration.

At first, there was a lot of bluster.
And finally she said " Deep down, I know you're right, and we should have a plan in place".

There was some exquisite Schadenfreude on Morning Joe today. Howard Dean was trying to defend Hillary and was being roundly mocked by all parties, including Eugene Robinson (who admitted astonishment because he nearly always agrees with Dean).

Dean claimed to not be familiar with basic aspects of the story,including that she had her own server in Chappaqua. He said "I think she just set up her own ISP, but it could have been in the State Department.

Anyway, it got so bad that Joe asked if he were working for Hillary. Dean said "I support her, yes". The defense did not rest, it collapsed in tears of shame.

Problem for Obama is there is no good lie here. Saying he was unaware, didn't know the rules, didn't email Hilalry etc... all expsoes him as weak, , detached, incompetent, not really in charge etc... The MSM and Obama sycophants will have to spin this carefully for those paying attention. Not that the LIV's will understand any of this. They are as stupid as Obama assumes.

Might need to moderate that attitude just a bit when you move to the Texarkoma area. Just like I was registered Democrat when we lived in Chicago, I switched right (and gladly) to Republican when we moved back to Oklahoma. For the same deady practical reasons: The primaries are where the election takes place in one-party areas.

Here are eight instances in which President Obama said he heard it on the news--or way after-the-fact--just like ordinary Americans.
