Morning Thread (4-23-2015)

Well what have we here? ...Clinton charities will refile tax returns, audit for other errors

The charities' errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.

"I'm sure this was an honest mistake," says everyone in the media today.

Ever notice that the Clintons make a heck of a lot of "honest mistakes"?

1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Thursday, April 23, 2015. On this day in 1985 Coca Cola released New Coke. It was pulled three months later. Was it a smart move or a marketing disaster? I go with disaster.

3 The ACLU is showing its ass again. They are suing the feds to make sure that Catholic groups who receive funds from the federal government provide abortion and contraceptive services to illegals. Why is my tax money going to anyone sheltering illegals to begin with? And this little stunt sounds like the typical Holder sue and settle BS.

_____________________

Actually, it was Scankles in her role as Secretary of State who did that, while the Clinton Foundation was simultaneously (and undoubtedly !coincidentally!) receiving millions of dollars in donations from the Russians who wanted to make the deal happen.

It's f--king corruption on steroids, and as an added bonus, it is corruption that endangers the national security of the United States by putting U.S. uranium production into the hands of our enemies.

But Hillary Clinton is, like, totally qualified to be president of the United States, dudes! She has a vagina!

43 Chinese nuclear experts reportedly warned the U.S. earlier this year that North Korea's nuclear arsenal is larger than previously estimated, creating a heightened security threat to the U.S. and its East Asian allies.

The Wall Street Journal reported late Wednesday that by Beijing's estimate, North Korea may already have manufactured 20 nuclear warheads and is capable of producing enough weapons-grade uranium to double that amount by next year. U.S. experts have previously estimated that North Korea has between 10 and 16 nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, in Alta California:

On Thursday, the 22nd anniversary of his death, Chavez will get full graveside honors from the U.S. Navy at his memorial in California.

The idea for the ceremony came from a current Navy sailor who learned Chavez did not receive the honors at the time of his death, according to the Cesar Chavez Foundation.

17 year-old Cesar Chavez enlisted in the Navy, spending what he would later describe as "the two worst years of my life."

And that BS law has caused nothing but problems. But schools can opt out if they want to give up the federal money.

There are no words. When someone believes that *humanity* is a "social construct," that can be described as nothing less than a psychotic delusion- akin to believing you're a duck.

Yet someone who obviously believes that is a Judge (presumably NY State judge?).

Meet Amazon's first customer

John Wainwright, an Australian software engineer based in Sunnyvale became Amazon's first non-company customer in April 1995 when he purchased Fluid Concepts And Creative Analogies: Computer Models Of The Fundamental Mechanisms Of Thought by Douglas Hofstadter

The online retailing giant later named a building after him.

passed with 247 Democrats and 17 Republicans voting for, and 4 Democrats
and 153 Republicans voting against it.



So the RINOs in the Senate voted for it. Only 17 RINOs in the House voted for it when they had to have a recorded vote.


the Senate in 2010 had 57 Dems with 2 Independents who voted Dem. The Republicans in the Senate still could have blocked it but they didn't. It would have taken every Republican and the RINOs were not on board.

ARMY TO REVIEW DECISION TO HAVE MALE CADETS WEAR HIGH HEELS
From The Washington Post:

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It gets a fair amount of attention in the U.S. military, in which thousands of assaults are reported annually and the Pentagon has acknowledged cultural problems that need to be addressed. One place where the military is addressing the issue is college campuses, where Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) organizations train students before they earn a commission and become new officers.

This is a liberal decision (6-3) with Thomas, Alito and Kennedy dissenting. Basically, the cops now can't detain you in a traffic stop and keep you there while they call in the drug dogs without some reasonable suspicion.

And I say good to this. The cops game the rules all the time after making up some bullshit reason to stop, then turn it into a criminal investigation witch hunt. This should rein them in some.

I've been saying it in many places lately, that we're fighting the Transsexual issue the wrong way. There's nothing scientific at all about the idea that a soul is born in the wrong body. It's not empirical, falsifiable, or even testable. It's not science... it's theology, of a sort. They're talking about souls, it's a religious idea.

Therefore making any Federal laws regarding transsexuals violates the establishment cause as well as the doctrine of the Separation of Church & State. Requiring a third restroom in public buildings for other genders, when science only recognizes two biological sexes would be a law respecting the establishment of religion.

Seems like an attempt to make Gov. Jindal look bad to me, but I may be a wee bit cynical.

It's just weird, because they are trying to say it's his fault. Like what, he thought no one would notice?

This is one case where I'd believe there was a conspiracy between his political opponents and the media to make him look bad, rather than believe that he'd do something so ham-fisted.

168 Cato the Rebel Without a Party @ 142: "Therefore making any Federal laws regarding transsexuals violates the establishment cause as well as the doctrine of the Separation of Church & State."

I've been saying something similar (it that it's a Constitutional argument) against abortion. That clump of cells is either a fetus (i.e., "clump of cells") or a baby, and that decision is totally up to the mother. It's a life-or-death decision - not whether it lives or dies, but whether it is or is not a life.

In effect, a pregnant woman who chooses life owns that life, which is a clear violation of the 13th amendment. Same for the woman who chooses "choice."

Either all fetuses are human beings, or all fetuses are not human beings, or all pregnant women (and the government that grants them this choice) are slavers.

172 I'm starting to think trans* is one of those contagious mental disorders, like tarantism.
Posted by: HR at April 23, 2015 07:51 AM (rHXGG)

It's more like a cult. They recruit vulnerable people with a low sense of self-worth, then give them a reason why everything's been going wrong and a way to "solve" the problem. Their recruiting literature is designed to explain away everything under the sun as a symptom of transsexuality, then hook the questioner on the idea that they were simply born into the wrong body. Reality itself is wrong, they say, then they supply the fantasy.

There's other groups that operate on similar methodologies out there, such as the Otherkin, who basically take it one step further and say "well if you can be born into a body that's the wrong sex, you can also be born into a body that's the wrong species..." (and then the special snowflakes claim to be dragons, my little ponies, greek gods, sacred cows, vampires, or whatever other BS power trip floats their boat.)

The trans- rabbithole goes all the way down. Once you reject reality, there's no point where you suddenly go "wait, this is too crazy, it has to be BS."

Also, one should note that tax laws don't apply to the Clinton Foundation and Charitable Trust because of the word 'Clinton' in the name of the organization.

This is a prevalent diagnosis, and it's everywhere.

Consider the person with a conception of how the world should be, contrasted to how the world is. This person thinks - nay, expects - the world to change to conform to his opinion. Then he gets angry at the world when (shock) it doesn't.

Also consider the guy in government (say, for the sake of discussion, the President of the United States) who disagrees with a current law. Instead of leveraging his position to change the law, he simply refuses to recognize its existence.

The thing about that pesky Reality is that is continually insists upon itself.

Frank Giustra is also a major shareholder in a company called Pacific Rubiales, which produces oil in Colombia. It has been alleged that the State Department pushed the Colombia free trade agreement in connection with Giustra donations. Personally, I'm not too upset about that, because it should have been done under the Bush Administration and the Democrats in Congress blocked it, so if it took a Democrat Secretary of State and some honest graft to get it done, eh. But it's still a part of the puzzle that supplements the NYT.

In most States the primaries are the responsibility of the individual parties. The State only provides the polls and poll workers.

That is why the Republicans here keep losing the suit to close the primaries. The judge always rules that if the State provides resources then the State can have a say in how the primary is run. But, what I don't understand is why they never vote to close them since the Republicans control the legislature in SC and the gov. It should be an open and shut thing.

211 So around 85% of donations to Clinton Cronies Foundation went to salaries and travel? That is actually better than many charities and NGO's. What surprises me is that 15% actually went to development projects. However, from my experience with the Peace Corps I can say about 90% of that money was wasted as well and few if any lasting benefits are to be found anywhere. But hey, Clintons got some good publicity for "making a difference", there are some jobs for unemployable kids of Dem politicians and donors and Chelsea got her photo with poor African kids for Facebook so it was all money well spent.

246 AllenG: "I note that fewer and fewer chess sets are being produced with both white and black pieces."

I tend to think of this as a creative development - clear vs. frosted, gold vs. silver, etc. When I was a kid, I remember playing on a set with green and pink pieces. My favorite are the cat and dog pieces. I mean, there isn't a lot of ways to make a better chess set using black, white, and traditional shapes.

What I *do* think is cultural is how fewer sets feature a king with a cross on top. (The Crusades!, after all.)

254 Chess is gender oppressive. The King is the object of the game. Henceforth, on odd numbered days capturing the King will be the object of the game and on even numbered days capturing the Queen will be the object of the game.


I wonder if in muzzie chess, the queen has to follow the king everywhere, always staying one step behind him?

And if the relious police, (bishops), catch her out unescorted, they can move unlimited spaces to catch and execute her?

262 "Name Hillary's 3 greatest accomplishments as Secretary of State."

1. When Scotland released the murdering bastard behind the Pan Am 103 bombing, Secretary Clinton voiced her unambiguous displeasure. She didn't actually accomplish anything with this, but a secretary of state is a diplomat - talking is a diplomat's version of doing - but for whatever reason, she did the right thing. I'll grant her that.

2. (Sorry. I got nothing.)

Henceforth, on odd numbered days capturing the King will be the object of the game and on even numbered days capturing the Queen will be the object of the game. Oh, and spatial awareness is also gender oppressive, so cis-males have to play with noisemaking headphones, as described in Harrison Bergeron, which is not a satire. We apologize for assigning gender identities to the King and Queen and denounce ourselves in advance."*

So *that's* they have separate titles for men's chess and women's chess. I was wondering what upper-body strength had to do with chess.

283 I haven't seen this addressed yet, and it is clearly far more important than nukes, ghey wedding crap, Clintons, Cruz, etc., etc., etc.

I firmly believe the New Coke scam was a purposeful maneuver, to allow them to make the switch from expensive sugar to cheaper high-fructose corn syrup.

Had they just made the switch, people would have noticed their Cokes tasted weird. By switching up the formula for a few months, it allowed most consumers to forget the original flavor, so when they restored the "original recipe" 3 months later with HFCS, everybody thought, "This is great! Our old Coke is back!!"
