Overnight Open Thread (3-13-2016)

Quote of the Day I

When the Insta-Daughter was a freshman at Georgia Tech, I wrote Peterson personally because armed gangs were staging "dorm invasions," breaking into dorms and robbing students at gunpoint. I was concerned about her safety, but I didn't even get a reply. That makes me wonder if one reason why the Tech administration is targeting its own students is its inability to deal with the actual, serious crime on and around its campus. I also felt that they really lied to us about the campus security situation when we were looking at the place, and would advise future applicants - and parents of applicants - to take whatever they say with a grain of salt.

-- Glenn Reynolds in Georgia lawmaker calls on Georgia Tech president to resign.

Quote of the Day II

"We are not exactly redesigning how to go to the moon, right? This is a pistol. ...And arguably, it is the least lethal and important weapon system in the Department of Defense inventory."

"[A] 367-page requirement document. Why? Well, a lawyer says this, and a lawyer says that, and you have to go through this process and that process and you have to have oversight from this that and the other."

"The testing - I got a briefing the other day - the testing for this pistol is two years. Two years to test technology that we know exists. You give me $17 million on the credit card, I'll call Cabela's tonight, and I'll outfit every soldier, sailor, airman, and Marine with a pistol and I'll get a discount on it for bulk buys."

Guinness: The Oldest Living Man in the World is a 112 Year Old Survivor of Auschwitz

Born in Poland, near the town of Zarnow on 15 September, 1903 to parents Moszek-Dawid and Brucha Krystztal, Mr Kristal has lived through both World Wars and survived Nazi war camp Auschwitz in the 1940s before relocating to Israel.

Kristal claims the title at the age of 112 years and 178 days as of 11 March 2016, and was awarded his certificate at his home in Haifa, by Guinness World Records' Head of Records Marco Frigatti.

Upon being confirmed as the world's Oldest living man and receiving his Guinness World Records certificate, Mr Kristal said: "I don't know the secret for long life. I believe that everything is determined from above and we shall never know the reasons why. There have been smarter, stronger and better looking men then me who are no longer alive. All that is left for us to do is to keep on working as hard as we can and rebuild what is lost."

Best of Hands: Obama's CIA Director Is Opposed to Actual Spying

In what was otherwise a thoughtful interview with National Public Radio last week, CIA Director John Brennan expressed his personal view that the CIA should be not be viewed as a spy agency. In the 24 February interview he said, "I don't support government spying.. We don't steal secrets. We uncover, we discover, we reveal, we obtain, we elicit, we solicit. All of that." What? We don't steal secrets? Is he joking? Brennan has reportedly also made clear to the officers under his charge that he eschews the term espionage, and does not view the CIA as an espionage service.

Federal Court: Bans on Bondage and Spanking During Sex Could Be OK

Thank you college campuses.

In this respect, the conclusion . that there is no deeply rooted history or tradition of BDSM sexual activity remains relevant and important to the analysis. Also relevant and important to the analysis is the absence of a history of impermissible animus as the basis for the restriction at issue here. Sexual activity that involves binding and gagging or the use of physical force such as spanking or choking poses certain inherent risks to personal safety not present in more traditional types of sexual activity. Thus, as in Cruzan and Glucksberg, a legislative restriction on BDSM activity is justifiable by reference to the state's interest in the protection of vulnerable persons, i.e. sexual partners placed in situations with an elevated risk of physical harm.

Accordingly, consistent with the logic of Lawrence, plaintiff has no constitutionally protected and judicially enforceable fundamental liberty interest under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to engage in BDSM sexual activity.

Only Yes Means Yes Coming to the Constitution State

Also thank you college campuses.

Moe Lane: Kipling vs. Breitbart.com

Advantage: Kipling.

It was weeks ere we could see the wood for the trees, but so soon as the staff [of a newspaper] realised that they had proprietors who backed them right or wrong, and specially when they were wrong (which is the sole secret of journalism), and that their fate did not hang on any passing owner's passing mood, they did miracles.

- Rudyard Kipling, "The Village That Voted The Earth Was Flat."
Breitbart senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak ordered the conservative website's staffers to stop defending their colleague Michelle Fields after she was allegedly manhandled by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Internal Breitbart newsroom chats, obtained by BuzzFeed News, show Pollak telling concerned reporters to "STOP tweeting about the story. Stop speculating about the story." In another message, he reminded them that "you were given explicit instructions."

Confessions Of A Former Mafia Boss

Michael Franzese is a former member of the Columbo crime family and at one time was listed as the 18th most powerful mob boss in the US - just five spots behind John Gotti. Then he walked away from all of it and without entering a witness protection program.

What is the process of becoming a "Made Man" like?

Very intense. very solemn, very serious. I took an oath with a picture of a saint burning in my hands. My thumb was cut with a knife and blood dropped on the floor. The oath is never to violate the brotherhood of La Cosa Nostra.

Is it generally harder for someone outside of the family to become a made man?
It is harder. you must be "proposed" by another made man. he vouches for you. my father did for me. the mob wants to know your background, where you came from. then you go through a pledge period where you must prove yourself.
Any fears about your safety today?

I can't go back to brooklyn to live, or in NY in general. wouldn't last. but i don't live in fear. i am a person of strong faith now. God has had my back. remember, i am the only made man, a caporegime, that i know of who has walked away from the life, publicly, not entered a witness protection program and lived. it's a God thing, my friend. not coincidence.

How much are you worth and have you really quit the mob or is this just deep cover?
I'm out. 15 years straight proves it. at one time, I was bringing $8-$10 million a week into my operation. had a jet, a helicopter - all the toys. today, I work for a living. for myself but I work.
How accurate are most mob movies/television shows? If you could recommend one to watch for authenticity, which would it be?

Most authentic - Goodfellas and Donnie Brasco. They mention my name in Good fellas. The bar scene. I knew those guys very well. My era. saved Henry Hill's life 2 x. I knew Paul Vario and Jimmy Burke well, also. And Left Guns Ruggerio was a good friend. Those two are the most accurate depiction of that part of the life.

Where's Hoffa at?
They will NEVER find Hoffa's body. trust me on that one.

Sippican Cottage and the Archaeological Tampons

I was no longer speaking to my son.

We hadn't had any sort of disagreement or anything. I like him a lot. If I didn't know he was my son, and I met him, I'd probably like him even more than I do. Because I know he's my son, I can espy resemblances to me, and that makes me discount his good nature a little, I'm afraid. I don't like myself as much as I like him.

No, it was simple weariness that had set in. It gets boring saying, "Go. Stop. Go. Stop." It's tiresome to say. It's tiresome to consider how tiresome it must be to hear. I slowly began to simply grunt, and after a while I just jerked my thumb this way and that to get the message across. He's perceptive, and he anticipated things once we got going, so even my thumb got a rest.

...I quickly realized I wasn't playing Current Events. The little pillows were ancient history. They didn't say Johnson and Johnson on them. They just said Johnson, talk to the Old Man. These were bungs from the Baroque, Always from the Jazz Age, postwar Playtex, Tampax from the Tang Dynasty, Ottoman Empire occlusions, Seleucid sanitary napkins, and stopples from the Silurian. This was a museum, not a sewer system. I wondered if I could get some kind of grant to look them over and catalog them.

I began to suspect that hunter-gatherer societies had been flushing these things down my toilet. The former residents of my house must have invited people over to join in the fun. They probably ran ads in the Grover Cleveland Craiglist to come on over and flush your troubles away. It seemed like a determined effort to my eye.

My son and I went back and forth, fifty to sixty feet of cable at a stretch. I don't remember how many times it took. When we were properly lulled by exhaustion and repetition, it finally came. The magic sound. It was the sound a nurse hears while walking down the hall in the nursing home late at night. A horrible gurgle, as the whole organism lets go and slides away to a better world. The poop in the pipe was gone.

Meet Dr. Pimple Popper

Dr. Sandra Lee is a dermatologist in Southern California who started posting videos of some of her daily dermatological work two years ago including removing blackheads, whiteheads and other skin occlusions. And since then she's become a YouTube star with devoted fans following all her zit-popping videos.

You can watch some here and here. I can tell you that they're both disgusting yet also intensely satisfying to watch. Dr. Lee has a very calming bedside manner and makes this seem like the most normal thing in the world. It's also funny to watch her working on her own kids in this video.

They do have a good piece up right now on how the security threat against Trump at his last event is a game changer in terms of the level of hatred that will now be directed at Trump.

Hard to disagree with anything written. Not a fan of the guy but he's been painted with a huge neon target now by too many gleeful idiots. I hope no one does anything stupid. But we're talking about the left and the BLM.

60 "One protester, 64-year-old Dede Rottman of Chicago, carried a placard
that read: 'Build a Wall Around Trump. I'll Pay for it.'"

Trump is from New York. When they went bust in the 1970s, and they asked for a federal bailout from President Ford, it produced the famous headline "FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD".

It would be funny to watch the Dede Rottman types crapping their pants in 2018 when Chi-raq's bond rating undergoes a final calamitous collapse, and the city can't borrow its way out of trouble any longer, and mass layoffs and savage cuts impend, and the request for federal help is made -- to President Trump, repeatedly insulted and attacked by Chicagoans -- and the famous two words are heard again.

Double stack mag
A rail for lights, lasers, etc
And for some real blasphemy, an external extractor.
Maybe port them to help with "recoil" for the Nancy boys

Having held a 1911 with a double stack mag, I was surprised at how well it fit my small hands.
As for recoil, the 1911 isn't bad at all. Yes 9mm is even softer, but .45 is hardly a powerful cartridge.

The "right to privacy", much like "tolerance", was just a lie the Left used to transform society to their liking.

They invoked a "right to privacy" to justify ripping down bans against things they thought were spiffy and to change the mores of the country. Now that they have power, they toss that "right" aside (or more accurately "balance" it against other rights in the name of "Social Justice"), and punish mores that find #Problematic.

They are the ultimate totalitarians.

161 If you read Wiseguys (the book Goodfellas is based on) you learn that the mob was no different than a scumbag street gang, they just had better outfits and political connections. Paulie was sleeping with Henry Hill's wife, for example. All those rules they claim were around, everyone ignored them until forced to pay the piper.

196 kbdabear is the spirit of comment threads past. He's the inherent promise of the internet distilled. Back in 2003 when the digital world was new, and it seemed like any and all home improvement questions could be answered by a middle-aged former electrician from Gary, IN who your friend's cousin had met playing tribes, it felt like the world would be made a better place if everyone could reach out and help one another. Like eventually we'd all learn the real names behind each other's avatars and sigs and postcount ranks.

Sure there was scary and weird stuff out there, but sometimes the weirdest characters were the most kind-hearted. kbdabear doesn't post on the Trumpenkrieg threads. He doesn't try to tell you how stupid you are for making eyes at that longbow and packing a 9mm pistol. He's just a kind spirit who drops by the ONTs, when we need him most, to drop off the tasteful smut and leave you remembering with a faint smile the first time you saw that kitten sniper picture on some military aviation history .co.uk site.

Does he owe ace a favor? Is there a quid pro quo? I don't know, but I'd feel comfortable guaranteeing you there isn't. It's just the kind of thing you sometimes are lucky enough to run into out here, on the information superhighway that is the world wide web.

Jeez, I need to hit the rack, but yesterday we went to go see those Collings Foundation WW2 airplanes that go on tour, and you can buy rides on them or pay admission to walk through them. WW2 vets get free admission of course. There was a little old man who looked just like this oldest living guy, sitting in a wheelchair with a B-25 squadron cap on. He and his family were there to look at the B-25. He wasn't able to board it, but he and the family were really enjoying seeing the old plane close up. I should've asked them about his service--what a dumbass not to.

Last time we went to see this airplanes there was an elderly British woman visiting who had survived the Blitz as a child. It's fun to see these folks, but they're all getting so old.

They all make you side with the family. At least I wasn't rooting for the cops in Goodfellas. Even though it depicted a bunch of murderous thugs, the movie puts you in their shoes and it humanizes them. You start to imagine how you would act if you were in a similar situation. How would you handle their adversities. That's why it was a great movie. If the thugs were cardboard cutouts that you could never emphasize with, it would make for a boring movie.

Aim one foot to the right of the light. Also put a couple of rounds one foot to the left in case the bad guy is a lefty. Then a couple more at the light, in case he's in a Weaver stance. Meanwhile he hasn't seen you yet...

It is, of course nutso what the gubmint does in procurement. It's why they can't have nice things, like up to date computers. By the time they write the specs (a 2-4 year process), the specs are mostly obsolete.

I disagree. In Goodfellas it's all great until it isn't. There's a slide with innocents like Spider getting killed at the card game. Then it turns with the side characters from the Lufthansa heist getting killed. "Jimmy would rather kill them than pay them." Then Henry knows he'll be next.

247 Thinking about Trump and violence made me resurrect my memory for the opening scene of Alan Furst's novel "Night Soldier."

It is 1934, Bulgaria, a small fishing village on the Danube, the local group of tough boys are marching around on the plaza near the shore. Hitler has consolidated his power in Germany, way way upstream and over. These guys are wearing brown uniforms and big black boots, making like soldiers.

A couple of kids are watching, teenagers, barely younger than the marchers, and one makes a snide remark to his buddy as the small formation goes by. They hear him.

He is beaten to death. No one who sees it happen says anything, because the brownshirts have come to rule.

But things like that can never happen again. Right?

I disagree. In Goodfellas it's all great until it isn't. There's a slide with innocents like Spider getting killed at the card game.

In Breaking Bad, they had a, what, 10 year old kid, get murdered on his dirt bike just because he rode up on them while they were robbing the train. The show remained immensely popular. Of course, I doubt that anyone was cheering the murder of a child, but the show was still compelling.

Or the Sopranos. That one wasn't a slow decent into depravity, but depicted some horrible human behavior right from the start. But, people still watched and found themselves sucked in.

It's not that people want to really live that life, but it is fun to fantasize for an hour or so a week. Then Monday rolls around and it's back to the grind. And for the vast majority of folks, if they wind up on Tony Sopranos' jury, he is going away.

No such thing. Always, you hurt others, always you cause pain and despair in other people. Suicide makes other people feel the way you do when you're considering it. And nobody should want to inflict that on another person.

I've been there. I've stared into that abyss. I've come so close I almost died. Walk away, because the only thing you do with suicide is make it impossible to ever get better.

After all, the campaign manager can sue her and Brietbart for libel and slander.

So what do you do if you run Brietbart. What do you do now. You know there is this other, damning, video out there and your ass is hanging out exposed

You're assuming something better is on the other side. More importantly, you're assuming there is another side, something beyond a final period.

That's not a safe assumption.

And since that's not a safe assumption, being homeless, unemployed, alone, and still able to see the sun rise everyday and wander along a park or a beach is still much better than the alternative.

314 196 kbdabear is the spirit of comment threads past. He's the inherent promise of the internet distilled. Back in 2003 when the digital world was new, and it seemed like any and all home improvement questions could be answered by a middle-aged former electrician from Gary, IN who your friend's cousin had met playing tribes, it felt like the world would be made a better place if everyone could reach out and help one another. Like eventually we'd all learn the real names behind each other's avatars and sigs and postcount ranks.

Sure there was scary and weird stuff out there, but sometimes the weirdest characters were the most kind-hearted. kbdabear doesn't post on the Trumpenkrieg threads. He doesn't try to tell you how stupid you are for making eyes at that longbow and packing a 9mm pistol. He's just a kind spirit who drops by the ONTs, when we need him most, to drop off the tasteful smut and leave you remembering with a faint smile the first time you saw that kitten sniper picture on some military aviation history .co.uk site.

Does he owe ace a favor? Is there a quid pro quo? I don't know, but I'd feel comfortable guaranteeing you there isn't. It's just the kind of thing you sometimes are lucky enough to run into out here, on the information superhighway that is the world wide web.

Don't be so sure. Suicide -- even of someone you barely know -- creates ever-expanding horrible ripples of emotional pain.

As I came to discover the dynamics of that firm, there was a huge shadow over everyone there from that event.

Ben considers himself a "journalist" or at a minimum a "person of the mind" he likely feels Breitbart has a duty to back his peer until it is obviously a lie.

Breitbart on the other hand likely sees a grand opportunity to get to play "deep pockets" with DJT who is already pissed off at the media.

They are probably all embarrassed at the idiocy of this whole fiasco and how they let themselves get dragged into it - relying on a friggin WaPo reporter for the primary "eyewitness evidence" - and they're all spazzing out. But, there's no way to make any better sense of it. They spazzed. Period. There's no deeper justification for their actions, either before or in their explanations in those silly letters of resignation.

There seems to be a more or less coordinated effort to get "Trump the violent fascist" out there in the narrative. I assume to drive votes, although it has the unfortunate side effect of driving leftist nutbags to do leftist nutbag things.

Also having that effect: CNN had the stage rush guy on the air for a respectful interview. What the fuck? If he'd managed to kill Trump would he have gotten a whole half hour?

Jew hatred has long been the most reliable and effective unifier of disparate groups and has seen much use as such. In that, it makes perfect sense. If there are groups that share nothing in common ... you can always get them to hate Jews together.

For millenia in Europe Jews were kept totally segregated from the rest of the populations. The Pale in Russia was an area where Jews were allowed to live - and not "outside the Pale". In most European countries Jews weren't allowed to own property or have other privileges. But Jews lived and prospered through it all .. which REALLY pissed the Euros off!

rb I find this behavior just as nasty as you do. I tried to walk the line between reacting to the REACTIONS and actually attacking Ms Fields. With questionable success... the "curling iron" line was mine.

I do think that since the sum total of the damage done was a boo boo and Ben Shapiro's journalism career, this is a safe topic to get hyperbolic on. Haha just kidding, mostly.

My negative reaction to the whole story taking off was the holier-than-thou attitude of those holding it up as evidence that Trump is a petty tyrant in waiting, more than thinking Fields is a big b-word. I do think she was more embarrassed and annoyed than anything and that it's extremely unprofessional and lame of her to have doubled down like this.

456 The only gals I've sent flowers to recently was the nurses at the my doc's office. They share the space with some dick of another doc who does cosmetic crap and when I was there, I heard him just berating the hell of 'em. I mean meant nasty stuff.

I sent flowers, anonymously to them about that.

As far as porn stars go, if I was going to do that, first one would be Mia Malkova. That is one flexible girl. Second would be India Summer. She looks elegant and sophisticated, yet is nasty as hell. Also does hilarious ad-lib comments whilst getting the stuffing banged out of her. Imagine a woman who could make you laugh so hard you'd fall right out of her.

Not that I would know anything about these babes of course. A friend tells me all this shit, you must understand.

Twitter is full of bigots of all stripes and they have all kinds of beliefs, some of which undoubtedly line up with your own in some instances. So what?

I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that those offensive tweets were spewed out of the Leftosphere in a Moby operation.

I would like to see them apologize to and reinstate the reporter they suspended for questioining Fields' account.

He asked for video evidence to substantiate her story, and they suspended him because that was "inappropriate".

If they're going to ask for public apologies because Trump's staff allegedly wronged one of their reporters, then they most definitely should publicly apologize to their reporter they wronged.

487 That Hellfire thing is odd. Paperwork to Portland, OR? Could have been any of a thousand internal sites after it cleared in-bound customs. In coffins? Hmmm.

It would have been a lot easier to ship in a comparable amount of HE. Arming and detonating the Hellfire would have been a bitch. You could probably rig a launcher, but without a designator, why. I'm not sure if can arm in flight without receiving the correct code from the laser -- and designators don't grow on trees. I guess a reasonable sophisticated tech could rig up a laser and figure out the coding and make a switch. But, damn, your getting real far from making a car bomb not blowup in your garage.

Did someone really want to send a message.

Oh ... and from what outbound shipment did those babies fall off the back of the truck? That record search should take about three minutes.

490 At FB, someone posted a bunch of "Bad Parenting" memes. IMHO all but one of them are... not sound advice. Here they are:

1. If your child intentionally disturbs you, it is because you are not physically affectionate enough.

2. If your child is lying, it is because you overreacted to the mistakes in past.

3. If your child had poor self-esteem, it is because you advice them more than you encourage them.

4. If your child does not stand up for themselves, it is because from a young age you have disciplined them regularly in public. Parents shouldn't do so even in front of siblings, friends or cousins.

5. If you buy everything for your children still they take things that do not belong to them, it is because you don't let them choose.

6. If your child is a coward, it is because you help them too quickly. Don't remove every obstacle from their path. (This is the only one I agree with; it sounds like advice from John Rosemond.)

7. If your child is jealous, the reason might be you compared them with others consistently.

8. If your child gets angry quickly, the reason might be you have not praised them enough. They only get attention misbehaving.

9. If your child doesn't respect others' feelings, the reason might be you always order them - not giving importance to their feelings.

10. If your child is secretive, the reason is you blow things very big.

11. If the child behaves rudely, it is learnt from parents or others living with them.

(A lot of these sound as if they were written by someone for whom English isn't their first language.)

Previously, she was a supposed victim of NYPD brutality.

Then, she accused Allen West of groping her. Didn't press charges or anything, just public allegations.

Now, we see the big nothingburger of getting jostled in the crowd ... and she's frivolously filed charges.

There's a pattern here. This isn't an innocent girl being led astray by a bad WaPo man reporter. This is a reporter inserting herself into the story as a fake victim.

On the flip side, she put an attractive picture of herself in her story about how she doesn't really want to insert herself into the story. So there's that.

513 Hold up, she accused Allen West of groping her? WTH?
Posted by: thathalfrican - be water my friend at March 14, 2016 12:56 AM (R5HRU)


Groping reported here:
http://gotnews.com/breaking-exclusive-allen-west-has-sexually-harassed-at-least-two-women/

West, who was fired from Pajamas Media, grabbed the breast of then 24-year-old, Michelle Fields in front of an elevator while the two of them were colleagues. Fields declined to be interviewed on record but three different sources at PJ Media confirmed this story. (Update: Fields repeatedly and emphatically refused comment on the record and asked that I change her earlier confirmation which I have now done.)

That is an.....interesting....comment. Why does she deserve it?
Posted by: cthulhu at March 14, 2016 12:33 AM (EzgxV)


Because she just does. In my opinion.

She's nobody you've ever heard of.

Back in the olden days, porn was mass-market. Feminists denounced it as objectifying women, and they probably had a point. Women were paid by magazine publishers and filmmakers to take their clothes off. They never knew the men who were looking at them, and the male customers never got to know the women they were looking at.

In the internet age, that has changed radically. There are lots of women who are making their own porn, on their own terms. They present themselves however they want to. And their customers get to "know" them to a certain degree. It's not quite one-on-one, but it seems to be trending in that direction.

This practically *forces* me to treat her as an actual human being, rather than a disembodied photograph. And I like that very much.

It's so true there were no charges filed and no settlement....

it is a borderline racist site which is kind of my point...

Ms Fields antics seem to be lending themselves to an interpretation that it is red meat for the darker angels of the right AND gentle tennis lobs for the left.

That site which was simply the first that came up is a bigoted CENTER-Left website by the way.

That's sort of a relief. Sayers had a series of mysteries, both novels and stories, with Lord Peter Wimsey as the sleuth -- there was a nice bunch of BBC adaptations with Ian Carmichael. In a later story, "Tallboys", Wimsey had retired to the country to raise his sons -- which, as might be imagined as being the scions of a top detective -- were devilishly clever little brats.

But, as is unusual with such "furniture", it is clearly noted that his boys are individuals. One need merely be informed that he had disreputed the honor of the distinguished family name and would torture himself for a week....while the other one is told to fetch the switch and head for the woodshed, and returned hand-in-hand with his dad -- 15 lashes was just a cost of doing business. The person wronged by his misbehavior shows up and both father and son go "15 lashes" -- and he asks for mercy -- and both father and son go, "nope, it's done."

I should note that I first read the story quite a while back, but in dealing with the godkids I recognized how true it is. Godson #1, in fact, reacted to a teacher's "if you do this, you'll go to the principal" by doing it in plain sight and packing his stuff for the trip.

and now you can stay on mom and dad's insurance until you are 26....and get an invasive operation with no parental notice at 12....but can't buy a handgun until you are 21....

it is the very definition of "wandering zero."

In every society that's ever existed, there's been a sort of demarcation for coming of age. In primitive societies, it may mean getting the tribal tattoo or facing some kind of trial of courage. In modern societies, it means getting your rights as a citizen and getting a job.
I have to wonder if screwing with this mechanism is part of what's created the flock of Pajama Boy types running amok these days.

Trump and his people have been attacked by the media since Day 1. They didn't anticipate Trump and Co. attacking back, so it just gets worse. This is just the latest example.

They attacked her because they knew she was full of shit from the start. And you know what? This time, Trump & Co. are totally right. They are right to attack her, and they should continue to attack her until her career is destroyed.

And Ben Shapiro's too, if he's gonna keep trying to back her up.

Trump's not my top choice, but if I get to see 8 years of him attacking the liberal media whore scum and reducing them to the pathetic piles of shit that most of them are, well then I'll be happy.

You know, what seems to escape the notice of all the White Knights here, is that first, there seems to have been no physicality used on Fields at all, and second, even if there was, it was trivial, and probably justifiable, given that Trump is a public figure who has had his life threatened. She wasn't beaten up, nor punched, nor kicked, nor given a hickory shampoo. She was allegedly, and so far, unprovably, restrained by a grip on her arm, and that restraint, allegedly, and so far, unprovably, caused her to lose her balance, and go down on her ass on the floor. Big fucking deal. If it happened in a hockey game, the fans would mock her for taking a dive.

Well, like most arms of a socialist revolt, they believe they are all one happy family, or rather that their enemies in the movement will be oblivious until they stab the knife in THEIR back. Revolutions in general and socialist ones in particular are always a gigantic mess of competing grievances who, once they eliminate their common enemy, happily turn on each other.

With good reason, the first counter revolution that took and held red areas was predicated on an economic system more akin to Scandanavia than Elizabeth Warren's mastubatory lit-chick reading list.

Yeah, I know that, but it seems the White Knight refuses to watch the video that disproves her story. I'm just pointing out that, even if you accept her alleagations as fact, they don't amount to a hill of beans. If you or I charged up to Hillary or Hussein, waving a microphone, we could well be shot dead. This is a giant nothingburger, and the only thing you can take away from it is that Trump's people exercised admirable restraint.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at March 14, 2016 01:59 AM (/i7Ua)

626 This whole primary is mind blowing but I get it now.
1) To get on the ballot at the convention you have to carry 8 states.
2) On the first ballot the delegates have to vote for whoever they were assigned to vote for. If there candidate dropped out then they can vote for whoever they want to.
3) If no candidate wins a majority on the first ballot then the delegates can vote for whoever they want.
4) Marco Rubio is a party insider as is Kasich.
5) Cruz and Trump are outsiders fighting for the same pool of voters -- as was Carson and Fiona.
6) Ohio and Florida are the only winner take all states of any consequence. The rest are small western states and Delaware with few delegates.
7) The delegates are assigned by the state parties in different ways but you can bet your butt that they'd rather chew their own legs off then vote for Trump or Cruise of their own free will..
Cruz is close in the delegate count but he isn't winning.
9) Trump is a sociopath that enjoys this and he's paying out of pocket at least until the Primary so he has no reason to quit.
10) GOP 2016 Primaries where are designed to be short so as not to hurt the winner too much in the process. For instance in Texas the difference between Marco Rubio at 17.7% and Trump at 26.7% in popular vote was in in the delegate count was 3-48. Rubio got no delegates from the popular vote since he didn't make the %20 threshold the 3 was because he managed to win 1 congressional district which is worth 3 delegates. Cruz got 104 for 43,8% which is a little better but the district votes still make it lopsided. The attention is to identify the most likely nominee quickly this time around and not drag the primary out for 4 months like last time. However had Trump not been there Rubio would have easily crossed the magic %50 number and picked up the 34 bonus delegates that were left on the table. Adding almost another 1/3 to his total. In fact even in Miinesota which Little Marco won Rubio and Trumps combined total would have beaten Marco and picked up the lost bonus of 1 candidate by crossing the %50 vote threshold. In the case of Minnesota there bonus is penalized since the largest part of bonus delegates is awards based on whether state that the primary is in backed the parties candidate in the last general election.. Either one of them would be a lot closer to the prize right than they are running against each other.
http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P16/R-Alloc.phtml
OK that's a long read. I hoped it made sense but the bottom line is Trump and Cruz are both dipping into the same pool. It's not big enough to split in two and still beat the die hard party members. If you pay attention to facts and read between the lines this isn't that hard to figure out.
Both candidates made plans to be the outlaw in 2016 and take the GOP. I think Trump saw how weak the party is and thought to himself: "I can do this. I know where Hillary's bodies are buried. I can knock these establishment limp wrists into next week, take Hillary down and actually be the leader of the free world". Which is a what Fiorina and Carson where thinking of too except without the maniacal laughs and the incapacity for any form of empathy. Fiorina thought could knock out whatever panty wastes the GOP put up and out bitch Hillary. Carson just thought god and country needed him. That's my take.
Cruz likes being the a rogue but he still has to do deal with the party when this over. He's just not the kind of guy to really destroy the GOP because he didn't get what he wanted. That is why Cruz is crying to Rubio to drop out and why he is crying to the party to support him because he knows Trump has him by the short hairs.
Marco thinks that if can just keep them both in the race long enough he can have his party buddies give him the election. He has both Trump's and Cruz's words on multiple occasions that they would honer the nominee no matter who it is.. Maybe he even thinks Trump doesn't completely understand the electorate or that he tricked him into a corner. Stupid cub scout wants to be big time politician.
Trump thought at first Cruz would be a warm up but a push over and Marco wouldn't even get on the convention ballot without 8 states. He really shouldn't have one a single state but Cruz was dipping into Trumps populist cookie jar and Trump realized this wasn't going to just be a warm up for the main event if Rubio splits the vote.
Their is knife is a knife behind Trumps back and that knife is his ability to people to people's faces without remorse and make them want to believe him. Donald's campaign has gotten really big with a lot people who are fed up with the establishment who mistakenly think he really fucking cares about their pathetic lives -- read that in Trumps voice in your head I'm just making a point.
If Cruz for some unknown reason splits the vote beyond the point where Trump can carry the convention on the first ballot -- which is the only chance either one of them have at winning this thing -- Trump will scream bloody murder that the party didn't keep their end because he is a sociopath and this how sociopaths do things when they loose.
He will say that he had the majority of delegates they screwed him over with insider Washington tricks. Then he'll pat little Marco on the head,run as an independent and tell Ted to fuck off by taking the larger part of Ted's base with him while poisoning any of the ones that remain towed Cruz. The next day all his fans will remember is what he tells them anyway just like every time he lies to them He knows he can beat these guys now. He isn't going to just quit and go home because of stupid promise he made. It's their fault for trusting him the first place. He's a sociopath and that is what sociopaths do.
Rubio is staying in because he thinks he has Trump corned. Poor Marco probably giggled when he told Mittens about how sneaky he was.
Trump is at the epicenter of the biggest shit storm the country has seen in decades and loving it because this is the only way he can get an erection after that thing with the hair implants. Trump is running around bitching about taxes and pissing off SJWs with the taxpayer paying for the best security detail money can buy in the Secret Service and the cops. He can taunt these little anarchists with impunity after they shut down some the best minds for making their feels hurt.
Right now Trump is jerking off to the thought that he got Rahm Emanueal to reenact the 1968 Democratic convention using the SJWs as standins for the hippies and he did it right in Barry's back yard at the school where Bill Ayers taught. With Bill Ayers actually there to watch. He's probably probably paid more for Ivana's boob job back in the day then he's spent on this campaign and at least this gets him off.
I bet that if not by now then very soon Ted Cruz will be putting out feelers to Donald to be his VP candidate. If he does Trump will make him beg because hurting people is the only way Donald can feel alive and then Trump might say no anyway. At least Cruz can save face and step up a notch that way even. It might not be so bad. VPs never are always flying to funerals and shit anyway so it's not like he'd ever have to see Trump ... much. Otherwise he has to go soon. Not everyone in the GOP is a boyscout that wants be a pirate. Cruz needs donors to run and the big ones will dry up and offer some firm but friendly advice pretty soon here to save the party.
Which is a shame because he was my pick. All politics is sleazy but I bet a lot of them feel bad about the things they feel they needed to do to win. Donald enjoys it. In little sound bytes he's charming but I've watched more then a few of his full speeches. By the time I'd seen half a dozen I knew I could never vote for this guy. It's not his policies it's him.
.--------------------------------------------
OK this be the best general election in years. I think he'll through Hillary like a hot knife through butter. Then we give him the nuclear football to have at his finger tips.
---------------------------------------------
Also I get why Carson and Fiorina endorsed Trump. Nobody likes that little suck as prick Rubio and Trump would rather burn the house down then loose.

No one around her had any reaction either that would be expected if a woman close by was almost knocked down on the ground.

Because they think that you caring for yourself is evil and that you will act selfishly to the point of destroying everything around you. With everyone doing that, on their own, all will collapse in chaos or be solidified by the few winners as a permanent caste system (like the one they have had for millenia in India ... that all the leftists think is the coolest place on Earth). The left thinks they have to beat the notion that your individual life matters out of you in order to force you to work for the community, which is directed by the few special individuals who know what's best for everyone.

The true essence of leftist thinking is "staticism". They can only imagine a static, stagnant world where nothing really changes. In such a world one can't afford to allow any competition since it is nothing but a zero sum game. In such a simple, stagnant world one can entertain the idea of total equality ... since nothing ever really changes and pretty much anyone can do any job, if not kept away by the nasty, greedy people who built stuff and own it.

Leftism, so far as my view of it, is all about staticism and the assumed evil of the individual. And leftist policies push these fundamental ideas on the societies they are tried on. Stagnation and the criminalization of all individuals doing anything to pursue individual interests (except, of course, for the exempted elite).

The problem with leftards is that they are inconsistent. They think humanity is too corrupt to be left to itself, but they make a tacit exception for themselves. And they think that gives them the right to use whatever means are necessary to make reality be what they think it should be. When they "come up with plans" as you say, they are not even thinking of you. They want to reshape demographic statistics to be a certain way.

Yep. That's a good part of it. And leftists have no respect for the concept of "trial and error" and how that needs to be done thousands of times just for minor industries to get off the ground and built out. They look at all the errors that happened along the way and think, "that's just because those evil people wanted to take money away from XYZ. We would not allow those errors to happen, all stemming from that greed, and that industry would have appeared almost instantly and at 1/1000 the cost." But, as we saw in the Soviet Union (which certainly never suffered from a lack of intelligence) they couldn't even get their ample food stocks to market without half of it rotting, not even with examples from us and other countries showing them exactly how that was done.

I formed most of my opinions and ideas about leftism from having lived for a few years on some kibbutzim. There I got to see lots of leftist theories put into practice up close. It was fascinating. Even the simplest thing - equality in housing - couldn't be sustained on the kibbutz with even the slightest amount of natural growth. Eventually, housing on every kibbutz was multiply stratified and people bitched and fought over getting the best housing. It was kind of funny but also very informative.

Growth or dynamism of any sort is absolute death to any leftist implementations.

Nope. You are both wrong.

Man was created good. God said so. Repeatedly.

Then we fucked up, big time. Apple, eating, all that jazz.

But the socialists have it both ways. They are pretty sure that mankind is evil in intent and action, all except for themselves, who only have the good of everyone in mind at all times.

They are wrong on both counts.

Man is good. Sin is evil. Man repeatedly chooses evil because of concupiscence. The socialists are equally as evil, but they don't see it, because man is good at lying to himself, because of concupiscence.

So, if you get rid of the socialists, you end up with capitalists who recognize the danger of putting so damned much power in front of single men who choose evil over good, and they spread it around, so that the inherent good of man can be reinforced by others, who also choose evil but are made to face it, head on, and then avoid it if possible.

Not a perfect system, but a damned sight better than being made to kowtow to a bunch of elitist socialists.

682 For those of you who have never been clinically depressed, it is very hard to understand the condition. A depressed person is likely to feel completely isolated in a crowd of people, even in the bosom of the family. Nobody sees the world like the depressed person, and it is a terrifying view. Having been there, and done that, I will say that not everyone is exactly alike, but the world appears positively gray, dark and awful, with no future worth noticing or mentioning. It is precisely the despair that comes from within that makes the world unbearable. It is not a view of reality, but it is pervasive and persuasive.

As to those who choose suicide, very few will tell you in advance if they are serious. I certainly didn't. Once you feel so isolated, what good would it do to tells someone? That is the twisted logic that appears. It is soul crushing.

The silliest thing can divert the potential suicide. In my case, it was my dog, who was absolutely a one woman dog. Instead of jumping in the hole I had cut in the ice on lake, I thought about what would happen to Sophie dog. It was dark, I was alone, there was nothing tangible that should have stopped me after all that effort. But, I did not do it. Instead, I walked three miles to shore and called the 911.

If someone is ideating suicide on this blog, I would take it with a grain of salt. The sort of depression that leads to drastic measures is not the sort of thing that will bring that person here to interact. It can happen, of course, but odds are against it.

Just my two cents.

Yes, they do love statism (as the individual must be controlled by some group) but I was saying that the foundation of their theories is based on a static worldview.

but they believe that people are perfectible. The theory behind communism is that you don't need profit motives; that everyone will work just as hard as everyone else even is there are no incentives. We will all share and share alike out of love for our fellow man. They are against individuals who refuse to join with the collective.

That is the banner rhetoric for the end goal, for sure, but I don't think any leftists actually take that seriously. And you can even feel the static nature of such a world. Everyone is just doing their work for the day, coming home, the same thing over and over ... nothing new is ever on the horizon.

Sophie has passed to the great beyond a good long time ago. She ate a ball of bailing twine when she couldn't find carpet to shred and it got stuck and the surgery couldn't get to it in time.

Damn. I am sorry to hear that. My dog, when he was about 6 months old, chewed through two power cables.

Thankfully, the things he chewed through were not plugged in, but it scared the crap out of me. I bought him a bunch of chew toys, played with him with the toys and he never went after another cable.

These "embargoed" drives? Could you not just get a "beater box"
desktop, set it to boot Linux from a memory stick or DVD drive, and then
place the "embargoed" in it as a slave? Explore the "embargoed" drive
using the Linux file tools, and copy down by hand any pertinent
information? If this machine is never put on line or networked to your
other machines, there is no risk of passing on malware.

That's pretty much the process. [We got smart 'rons.] Unfortunately, can't happen tonight -- 'cause I'd conk out halfway through. You missed some steps in that they'd be in a Thunderbird postbox [which might very well be bug-infested, being that Ira had full control of my email for a bit, after dropping a keylogger].

I know that the drive involved is infected [it was the main drive in the main computer where I detected the problem]. I cannot extract anything without being crystal clear about it -- and it's late enough and drunk enough that it's fuzzy.

For those of you who have never been clinically depressed, it is very
hard to understand the condition. A depressed person is likely to feel
completely isolated in a crowd of people, even in the bosom of the
family. Nobody sees the world like the depressed person, and it is a
terrifying view. Having been there, and done that, I will say that not
everyone is exactly alike, but the world appears positively gray, dark
and awful, with no future worth noticing or mentioning. It is precisely
the despair that comes from within that makes the world unbearable. It
is not a view of reality, but it is pervasive and persuasive.



As to those who choose suicide, very few will tell you in advance if
they are serious. I certainly didn't. Once you feel so isolated, what
good would it do to tells someone? That is the twisted logic that
appears. It is soul crushing.



The silliest thing can divert the potential suicide. In my case, it
was my dog, who was absolutely a one woman dog. Instead of jumping in
the hole I had cut in the ice on lake, I thought about what would happen
to Sophie dog. It was dark, I was alone, there was nothing tangible
that should have stopped me after all that effort. But, I did not do
it. Instead, I walked three miles to shore and called the 911.



If someone is ideating suicide on this blog, I would take it with a
grain of salt. The sort of depression that leads to drastic measures is
not the sort of thing that will bring that person here to interact. It
can happen, of course, but odds are against it.

697 About 20 years ago a dear family friend woke up one day and found his partner in the car in the garage, rigged up, still running. His pain was immeasurable. Many of us still miss him terribly.

12 years ago my cousin's beautiful daughter went to her little brother's apartment because she was concerned about him and found him shot by his own hand. The funeral was huge and the saddest I've ever been to.

18 months ago my teenage daughter's friend hung herself in her bedroom. Friends at school tried to console one another when tears flowed, but trying to focus on coursework was impossible for a very long time. Our family's friend, a deputy, was the first on scene and his ptsd was triggered, big time.

699 If I said alcohol would you still love me.

OK short version. Cruz is almost done. If all three stay in than Rubio wins in the second ballot. Kasick is just sticking around to see if he can help torpedo Trump and Cruz more by taking cock blocking Trump in the winner take all state of Ohio.

Trump has a large motivated base and he'll think nothing of claiming that him having the most delegates means he should get the nomination then scream about the establishment playing tricks. That will be is excuse to break the oath about supporting the nominee. His base will believe anything he tells them so he can go off and run as a third party. I even think he could win that way.

I think Cruz donors don't want to chance it. A lot of people will think it's pretty shitty if Marco wins that way and sympathize with Trump. So Ted has to step out of the race before he gets too many delegates for Trump to win on the first ballot. Because once it goes to a brokered convention you won't be able to get the delegates to vote for Trump if you held a gun to their heads. Cruz has been basically begging Marco to just let it go because Cruz could actually beat Trump if the establishment backs Cruz along with his own base. But marco and mittens think they have this all worked out. We will see.

752 The sidebar on Ariana Grande was an eye-opener; I had no idea she could even really sing, much less so well. Everything I've ever heard of hers was so over-produced and her voice always sounded autotuned.

It turns out she had a chart-topping classical song last year too (another revelation), singing a Morricone song in a duet with Andrea Bocelli. It's beautiful, and I'm sending her donuts. If any of you folks like Ennio Morricone here you go:

756 So, my son is going on a trip to Europe-Switzerland, Spain and France-the week after Holy Week. He said he's o.k. about going, but being on the autism spectrum he doesn't always say a lot about things unless he's really interested. Instead, he shows me about a six minute video clip called "Worst school trip disasters". -Teacher took girls hiking when the gils wearing skirts and the teacher had no compass. Teacher allows underage kids visiting Switzerland to go a bar/.strip joint.Teacher allows kid to bring a girl to the teachers room where kid has sex and the teacher films it secretly. Kids have horrible time with no food on some island in the Hebrides. I told him that most of these stories come out of Europe, "This trip has been done several times. Almost all the chaperones have been on the trip before and I sincerely doubt they're going to let orchestra kids go to a bar and strip joint. So this is a long way of saying, If you could pray for my son's peace of mind before this trip it would be appreciated.

Thx.,

831 I like how various lefty groups and Bernie supporters go to Trump rallies to stir up trouble and its Trump's tone that is the problem NOT the various lefty groups and Bernie.

I also like the "Love not Hate" signs of these groups while they simultaneously hurl F-bombs at Trump supporters, including young children, peacefully assembling.

832 820 You really have so much angst that you get whooped
up over articles you haven't even read? And you imply someone is a
racist because they (me in this case) withholds judgment, and doesn't
leap off your lemming cliff with you? Seriously, man, go walk it off.

Posted by: MTF at March 14, 2016 06:53 AM (TxJGV)

I was "whooped up", as you put it, over his quote denouncing white people. And I suggest you walk it off because you are way wrong on this.

833 Seriously, man, go walk it off.

Posted by: MTF at March 14, 2016 06:53 AM


I'd suggest YOU consider "walking it off." Vic is opinionated, certainly, but he is also well-informed and not at all susceptible to the kind of hysteria that some commenters display.

You say you didn't read the KW screed, but get up in someone's grille because of their interpretation of same? Not classy, dude.

She's vain and shallow.

835 There is ample reason to oppose Trump or at the very least to cast serious doubt on his motives by shining a light on his lengthy record and statements.

That said, Kevin Williamson does the proper vetting of Mr. Trump a grave disservice by his hairshirt diatribes. Too bad because he is, or was, otherwise one of NRO's few bright spots.
Posted by: J.J. Sefton at March 14, 2016 06:56 AM (p4UlV)


I said it last week, and it caused some people to get all worked up, so I'll say it again: Trump is going to be the nominee. And there are some people who are still working through the ol' 5 stages of grief.


Williamson might be one of them. I don't know for a fact that he is, because I don't waste my time on such nonsense.


What was said months ago remains true: Trump gets under the skin of people who needed their skin gotten under. And now that he's about crossed the finish line, it's getting more uglier for those people.


So be it. At this point I'm just sitting back and watching. I'm sure as heck not going to lift a finger to help them.

836 823 I thought the headlines said her party lost?

Posted by: Nevergiveup at March 14, 2016 06:54 AM (mw8Dm)

People are making assumptions that she stayed in because they only had elections in three provinces yesterday. As I said above more provinces are coming. She is on the way out.

Posted by: Vic-we have no party at March 14, 2016 07:01 AM (t2KH5)

837 818 KW has now provided more solid evidence that folks are not voting for Trump so much as they are voting against folks like KW and his masters.

--------------------------

I like how it's a moral issue for KW. The man that thinks two men can marry each other.

I asked why Vic took Breitbart at face value and why he didn't read KW. Easy does it "Dude".

Posted by: MTF at March 14, 2016 07:03 AM (TxJGV)

841 it is hard to read Kevin Williamson's screed in full since the byline is for the 28th...

https://www.nationalreview.com/nrd/articles/432569/father-f-hrer

He's an asshole.

Everyone in America is allowed to put tribal loyalties first but working class whites.

Fuck him.

The finish line is still miles away Burt... Trump is a man of low character AND a progressive... I for one will work my hardest to see an actual conservative elected.

Posted by: redbanzai at March 14, 2016 07:25 AM (NPofj)

844 "I for one will work my hardest to see an actual conservative elected."

Well, that was obvious from your support for counter-factual narratives in the hope they might damage Trump in the eyes of people who don't look into the facts.

845 Fen I will pray for your son. Since it's an orchestra trip I assume the adults going are famIliad with your son. Perhaps you could just let them know how anxious he is, it's really an anxiety problem, so they could reassure him during the trip

846 so how long will this site continue to hide behind posts about food and other nonsense rather than facing the music about being 1000 percent wrong about fields incident and defending Cruz' comments blaming Trump for BLM thuggishness ? liberal tactics on this once great site. how incredibly sad.

It's the weekend, johnny, and you'll find posts about food, guns, pets, books, games, etc. here every weekend, thanks to cobloggers who give the boss a well-deserved rest. Because there's more to life than just politics.

I wish or one of her advisers would have a Gruber moment, "you know its right there...."

They do genuinely seem to bend over backward to accommodate one group over the other.

While providing the noblest reason for doing so.
