Overnight Open Thread (6-19-2016) - Father's Day Edition

Quote of the Day I

Simply put, any American today who is accused of Islamophobia faces a ruined life with loss of employment and social stigma. Whereas the cost of not preventing mass murder is merely hurt feelings and regret.

-- John Schindler in The Road to Orlando

Quote  the Day II

After the Islamic State began releasing videos of American citizens being beheaded, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett reportedly told President Obama that Americans were worried that they would soon bring this violence here to the United States. Obama was unfazed.

"They're not coming here to chop our heads off," the president promised.

Now a terrorist pledging allegiance to the Islamic State has murdered 49 Americans in Orlando. What inspired him? CNN reports that "analysis of Mateen's electronic devices showed searches for jihadist propaganda, including . . . ISIS beheading videos."

Quote of the Day III

In six months, terrorists have killed more than 60 people on our shores; two of the perpetrators were the sons of immigrants, and one an immigrant herself.

It may be that one of the reasons we have avoided the problems of a France is sheer numbers. France has 50 percent more Muslim immigrants than we do, even though it is a much smaller country. Only 1 percent of the U.S. population is Muslim; 7.5 percent of the French population is.

-- Rich Lowry

Quote of the Day IV

Surfing past Fox News this morning, I heard someone report on a poll about what caused the massacre in Orlando. Apparently, most Republicans believe it was caused by Islamic extremism, whereas most Democrats believe it was caused by "domestic gun violence."

But the massacre was domestic gun violence. Democrats might just as well say that murder caused the murders.

-- Paul Mirengoff in When Nonsense Becomes the Party Line

Quote of the Day V

Anything that stands in the way of Progressive domination is under assault, because Progressives have no fixed principle beyond the will to power.

-- Glenn Reynolds on the Democrats' current assault on due process

What If It Turns Out That Top American Officials Actually Sympathize With the Enemy?

Just More 2016 Election Weirdness: The Brexit Battle of the Thames

Earlier today, one of the more bizarre scenes a political reporter will ever encounter happened on the River Thames, in central London. A flotilla of 30 fishing boats - led by a ship dubbed by one reporter as the HMS Farage, after its helmsman, United Kingdom Independence Party leader Nigel Farage - floated up the Thames to lodge a pro-Brexit protest. The nautical demonstration's particular angle was to rail against the European Union's restrictive rules on fishing rights.

That's when things got weird. Another small flotilla, this one in support of the Remain campaign and led by aging rock star Bob Geldof, also made its way up the Thames. Geldof's pleasure cruiser pulled up alongside Farage's flagship and played, over an apparently deafening sound system, various songs having to do with remaining - "Please Don't Go" by Haddaway, for instance. After pulling alongside the HMS Farage, Geldof himself took control of the microphone and launched a verbal barrage at Farage and the Leave campaign, who responded in kind. It was a very small nautical battle, a mini-Trafalgar if you'd like, as Remain dinghies ringed around pro-Leave fishing boats, some of whom sprayed water on and, in fact, boarded Geldof's boat. UKIP's David Coburn cheered them on.

All the while, the Thames Embankment was enthralled. MPs ventured out of Prime Minister's Questions and onto the terrace of the Palace of Westminster to marvel at the activities on the Thames. Supporters of the campaigns cheered on their sides from bridges.

Opinion: This is how big business can easily prevent the next Orlando tragedy

By buying up all companies manufacturing assault weapons and then killing them. So, so many logic flaws in such a short piece.

Russian Track and Field Team to Be Banned From the 2016 Olympics

For repeated violations of anti-doping rules as part of a Soviet-style state-supported doping scheme including urine-swapping at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi:

In a dark-of-night operation, Russian antidoping experts and members of the intelligence service surreptitiously replaced urine samples tainted by performance-enhancing drugs with clean urine collected months earlier, somehow breaking into the supposedly tamper-proof bottles that are the standard at international competitions, Dr. Rodchenkov said. For hours each night, they worked in a shadow laboratory lit by a single lamp, passing bottles of urine through a hand-size hole in the wall, to be ready for testing the next day, he said.

Philadelphia Taxes The Hell Out of Soda Drinks

Three cents an ounce is a very large tax, and the largest soda tax proposal I've seen since I started writing about this issue in 2011. Thought of another way, that's 36 cents tax per can of soda, or $4.32 tax per 12 pack of soda. For reference, a 12 pack of beer is subject to an excise tax rate of $0.09 in Pennsylvania. So this proposal would be an excise tax 48 times larger than the current beer excise tax.

Ostensibly this is to fight obesity but the fact that diet drinks are also taxed shows what this really is - a shameless money grab.

28 Syrian Immigrant Who Said 9/11 'Changed The World For Good' Is Now A Department of Homeland Security Adviser

That could either mean "9/11 changed the world for the better" or "9/11 changed the world permanently". The quote comes from a tweet, so not much context to go by there. He does have a history of saying stupid stuff and he's certainly a scumbag, but if a scumbag makes the observation that the world changed permanantly in the aftermath of 9/11 he's right even if he is a scumbag.

33 What Liberals don't seem to understand is that like Philly, people will go elsewhere and buy their soda. There are plenty of outlets very nearby that will be happy to sell them tax free soda (well except for the sales tax, I'm not sure if soda is considered a food or not. I don't drink it so I don't have much experience with it in PA.)

People do this with ammo, guns, liquor, cigarettes, etc.

Anything the gov't puts a tax on or makes into contraband is ripe for smuggling.

Smuggling is probably the 3rd oldest occupation.

And this means that now Philly's businesses will lose money or at least not take in as much.

Duh. How does the market work? Duh. (what most liberals say when confronted with the facts.)

39 Well, after all this, I had to carry my mother to the ER again. No, not the original problem, but something else: fecal impaction. That's a problem, a side effect of what all they've been giving her and putting in her, severe constipation (people have died from this in mental hospitals).

And to top it all, while we were at the triage station, a security guard, hell a cop from the local shop on duty there, asked me to step outside with him about "a concern". I noticed another Beaufort T. following me, sort of staying his distance behind.

Well, some blithering idiot, some hysterical dingbat, some pile of idiocy so dense it is going to collapse into a singularity saw me and concluded "that man is carrying a gun in his pocket!"

It was a pill bottle, one of my mother's I nearly forgot and hadn't put in the bag and just shoved it in my pocket.

In whichever dingbat or idiot's mind, that was a gun.

47 As far as guns go? Yeah. You'll have to buy up all the metal fabrication shops, the metal forming mills and the smelters because using just available metal shapes anyone can build a one shot weapon.

With some care and some little skill, one could build a sub machine gun out of available shapes and some basic power tools.

Sure it won't be as safe nor will it last as long.

But it will last long enough to acquire a better weapon which will still be around.

71 Actually, the cop that spoke to me was older, and was very nice. "Sir, we've had a report you're carrying a concealed weapon." I just laughed it off (it wouldn't do any good for anyone to do otherwise), and it hit me that pill bottle in my pocket was likely what someone saw. I pulled it out, and he just laughed, and said "well, we've got to follow up, it's usually nothing, sorry, can I get you a cup of coffee?"

72 Hi, Horde.

This was my first Father's Day without my Dad. To say it totally sucked would be understating it by a couple of orders of magnitude.

The kids are across the country, too. Fun times sitting alone in the apartment. So now I'm here to spread the misery around. Tell ya what, I'll just go sit here in the corner and nurse a Diet Mountain Dew. :/

What is the difference between Laila Alawa and Omar Mateen?

A: One is a Homeland Security menace...and the other is a Homeland Security Advisor.

btw, she's a Homeland advisor who says her homeland forever is Syria. Really, though, she's just a child.

Now we know what security policy would look like if it were written by Barney the Dinosaur and Achmed the Palestinian Mouse. That is, if the report wasn't already written months ago in Valerie Jarret's office.

82 First of all good evening all.

I'm here to leave a few brain droppings and then off to bed.

I found this quote and it seemed to click with me.

I am a conservative because I am liberal. I believe that change should be made by people not laws. I believe in Gay rights and equality for all races, religions, and creeds. I DO NOT believe that the government is the one who should take care of it. Society has grown lazy and wants the government to make those changes, but everything we need to take care of societal issues are these: peaceful protest, boycotts, and our voice. So, my question is this, why give the government the power to make change, when we have that power ourselves? The answer is because its easy, but when has anything valuable been worth any less than our greatest effort? I am conservative, because I am truly liberal with what rights the American people should have.

84 How does Obama claim federal jurisdiction of a local crime story like the murder at a bar, since Obama claims it isn't terrorism.

How does Obama's DOJ get to doctor evidence when they have no jurisdiction. Isn't the 911 tape property of the Orlando PD and don't they have jurisdiction of this case?

Oh, right. The Orlando mass murder was a hate crime against a specially protected class of citizens; not terrorism, a hate crime against gays.

So, not only is the actual commission of this crime the direct result of Obama's DOJ ordering the FBI to ignore the warning signs, we now have Obama's DOJ managing the investigation, and prosecuting the acomplishes of the lone wolf.

Obama has his hands on it from the very beginning to the very end. Just like Hillary.

One of the things about ISO 9000 compliance, is to be compliant yourself, you have to be a real asshole about your vendors being ISO 9000 compliant, too. It's like a cult in this regard.

The underlying theory for ISO is that everything is documented to the nth detail and runs according to plan. There is little room for a chef to say, "the tomatoes are less acidic than usual today, so I'll increase the lemon juice in the dressing for the salad" unless it is written down that this is what he does.

The problem is, however, that as you drive this into a supply chain further and further, you very quickly encounter someone who says, "fuck this shit." You can ISO your steel guy, who can ISO his his iron foundry, who can ISO his coal supplier....but, eventually, you get to some guy with a shovel who says, "blow me." Similarly, the iron foundry can ISO his ore supplier, who will lean on his geologist, who will say, "when I got to the right place, it smelled right....and if you want more documentation about that, I suggest you get a pet retard to try and generate it."

Trying to peel back the technology necessary to make firearms is very similar. John Moses Browning (PBUH) made what is widely (though not universally) regarded as the perfect pistol in 1911, using what he had in his home. He tried out various ideas in one of his home's hallways. He had no CNC or DRO, or any other fancy toys.

I have had opportunities to travel to the area of Greensboro, NC -- they were known and renowned for their gunsmithing in the mid-1800's. They didn't even have guncotton then (the first safe process for manufacture was patented in 1865).

Trying to stuff that toothpaste back into the tube would require the US to revert to a technological lack-of-sophistication typical of the middle of the industrial revolution. Of course, the Green crowd is working that from another angle, so maybe they consider it a feature instead of a bug.

the secret to long distance accuracy is rifling. Under 15 feet smoothbore is ok if the bore is smooth.

however, the original method was to use a broach and a rifling bench tool, then Mauser or Walther came up with that whole "hammer it around a mandrel" method, and now some manufacturers use a tungsten button they pull through like a bore snake.
Magnostriction around a mandrel would be even more exciting, and I think the Dutch had a composite barrel that was pressure injected into a mold (and turned out to be brittle or not resistant to solvent or some jackassed issue)

Metford and Arisaka polygonal rifling is fairly good but it is more of a low-pressure type arm to avoid stripping the lands. This is the same issue with micro-rifling

I like gray hair on doctors, pilots, and police officers.

However, Obama going gray doesn't seem to have imparted any wisdom whatsoever. So the principle is not universal.

That said, if I got pulled aside and told they wanted to see if I had a concealed weapon, in the position that publius was in, I would have been in a real pickle.

My immediate instinct would have been get my Irish up and say, "Sure, I'll be happy to comply. You can search me right down to my hair follicles and pyloric sphincter once my attorney is here with a camera team to document the process. Let me give you his number. I'll be happy to wait quietly in your sight with my hands clear of my body till they get here. While you're waiting, you might want to call your chief and ask how many zeroes he's comfortable writing out on the lawsuit settlement check."

On the other hand... when there to look after a vulnerable family member, without someone else in the loop to step in and care for her if I were to get cuffed and stuffed? Crap. That would be no good at all. I would have had to knuckle under.

I was under the impression we were in a "Trump Warz" free thread and it is impossible to discuss CJ without that being brought up.

I miss ChemJeff, as I miss on Twitter Amish Dude both of whom are casualties to this silly season we endure every four years.

The good news is after NT succeeds in Grammy H winning, I am sitting 2020 likely on out as I lay the groundwork to have property on 3 continents God willing.

141 Well, I'm actually sure that's since that's a hospital, they're sort of private, and kick anyone out for whatever reason, and the cop can then escort out, with force, whoever doesn't like that.

If I'd been minding my own business in a more public place, I would've been a little more "curt". If I was on my own damn property or something, I would've thrown a shit fit.

I have thrown shit fits with LEOs. One was a damned game warden, snooping around the place. They've got a hell of a lot of "search" power under state law somehow. I've heard of cops using them somehow to actually snoop around, where they didn't have the authority, but the game warden could. If he sees anything, he tells them and then they have the justification.

Anyway, I told him I didn't like him strutting around the place with his pea shooter strapped on. If you come on my property, you follow my damn rules, and I don't want you on it. Get the hell off now. He did.

He's not a bad guy. Obviously completely inexperienced in the arts of gunnery, cookery and overall Moronosity, but of a genuinely generous spirit, willing to learn and of sufficient humility to do so.

But, being entirely an academic, he's a bit given to the abstract in argument and debate. He WILL obsess over how many angels might dance upon the head of the proverbial pin, and do so till way past the point of patience of we mere mortals.

I find the same faults in his arguments as most, but do understand a bit of from whence his motivations and arguments evolve.

Maddening, to be sure. Such are the pinheads in pinheadium.

Make your own judgments, and I judge his arguments indeed, to be laden with fallacies and built of straw. But, not of malice.

He's just tenacious, mendacious and stubborn to boot.

In short, he's a decent guy with poorly developed ideas, presented articulately by means of a formidable higher education.

Make your own judgments, and I judge his arguments indeed, to be laden with fallacies and built of straw. But, not of malice.



He's just tenacious, mendacious and stubborn to boot.



In short, he's a decent guy with poorly developed ideas, presented articulately by means of a formidable higher education.



I'll tell you this though. Like him or hate him, he'd still buy you a drink. So, there's that.

Give Chemjeff credit that his natural inclination is to hang with us Morons.....but recognize that the poor sod's paycheck requires that he marinates in academia for 40+ hours per week. If you don't leave him a way to come back, you're forever damning him to that insanity.

It's evolved past immigration alone Maet.

Ace is correct, and by extension you are seeing the signs of the (sadly non-) schism in the Federal leadership's ranks.

A LOT of people have gotten past this whole "American" thing....what do these people think people like me who haven't are going to do when the newer better Americans start killing their cousins?

This nation put vendettas away for the most part amongst families of long standing....

total open borders nonsense will alter the nature of honor here.

That puts him about, oh, 30 - 40 years back in time. Her mama has been dead for about 20.

He kept the strength to visit my wife when we came in from Louisiana as he lay dying at Myrtle Beach...

he worked hard to be strong for her.

This might be technically true but it sounds like progressives have no beliefs beyond the will to power and this is NOT TRUE.

They are fueled and obsessed by the burning belief that white males are the cause of all of life's problem's. Everything they say and do is predicated on rubbing white men's noses in the shit of all the problem's they "created." This is the cause, this is the struggle. All the false idols have to be destroyed before the altars and all the white men have to be brought to heel and made to apologize for the sin of their own existence. Sorry if this sounds all Red State, it's not, it's the simple truth.

Why do we spend the time here that we do?


Is it the "philosophical camaraderie" we find?


Is it the "echo chamber validation" that's found?


Is it simply an "autonomous outlet" that provides the requisite release for our cerebral urges?


My mind wonders when I get fucked up, so forgive any offense. But the dedication the Horde shows deserves discussion.


Any an all thoughts are welcome.

You're offering an incomplete bet. There is no question that ChemJeff's current status is "more aligned with the Marxist open-borders caucus than [the] Val-u-rite nation" -- so if he realizes it, it is just discerning reality. The real question is if he goes all-in and sucks the cock of Soros, or whether he flinches away. I believe that ChemJeff will eventually flinch away -- unless you assholes keep pounding on him with personal attacks and leave him no room to "adjust". ChemJeff is, fundamentally, a good guy -- and I believe the globalists will eventually cause him to rebel....no matter how vile the academic world that surrounds him.

Nowadays, one can watch one episode of something two or three times in a day. TV programming, how does it work?

Recently, on GetTV, I saw some episodes of a show I never watched as a kid, 'Felony Squad'. Now I know where they got the idea for that great, but short-lived show, 'Police Squad' with Leslie Nielsen. I also know why I have never seen reruns of that show before. In the closing credits of one episode, they had a pack of L ampersand M's in the lower left corner.

You have to admit, it's easy to refute when you start with "the proponents are lying scumsuckers", but requires a bit more when you allow their theses....their theses being unbased on reality and their conclusions unbased on facts naturally follow.

227 Police Squad. The producers are the Airplane! guys I think. Anyway, look an old show called "M-Squad" with Lee Marvin. They bought the rights to the show and, hell, the plot and even the dialogue was verbatim. Leslie Nielsen just made it funny.

They did that with Airplane! and some old movie starring Leslie Andrews, playing the washed up war pilot who had to land the plane. The scenes and the dialogue are nearly verbatim, even to slapping the hysterical woman.

You can see side by side comparisons on Youtube, showing this.

They asked Leslie Nielson how he did straight vs comedic roles differently. He said, this is straight.....then he repeated the same line, the exact same way, and said, now that's comedy.

And it's about the truth. After Leslie went full clown, I can't watch any of his old movies, dramas, without cracking up. I see him saying it as Lt. Frank Drebin

228 And my road trip to fetch a derelict Studebaker was a complete success. The old '88 diesel suburban ran like a pup the whole way, and the fuel gauge barely dropped below the full mark. Getting the car (sans wheels) onto the trailer was a struggle, and the seller's little Kubota tractor with front loader was barely able to lift one end of the hulk at a time; back wheels were coming off the ground. My old International tractor is bigger, and has calcium chloride in the rear tires for weight, and I have never had a problem picking cars up with it. That's how the Jackall came to be used: the car would not slide on the trailer deck, due to projecting bolts on the front A-arms digging into the deck planks. Solution: put Jackall under front frame horn, raise it up a bit, and push car with tractor. Jack topples over, and car lurches ahead six inches. Rinse and repeat.


But once on the trailer, and strapped down, it never moved the whole way back.

betting CJ would be very uncomfortable with that simple truth at this

and zeros in the box b/c I always trusted his desire for truth over
conformity no matter where it led.

That is what the NT-TSF banality is leading.

I don't reject your view entirely, but there is one problem with reducing modern Progressivism to a simple hatred of white males. The fact is that white males have been in the vanguard of the Movement for a long time. They built it. Even today, after decades of frenzied affirmative action, they dominate.

And that's the whole problem. These people we're letting in aren't coming here because they want to be Americans. They're coming here because they want to get rich, or because they have ambitions of forcing a change on us. They're deliberately interfering with their children's assimilation as well.


We could let in twice as many people if they were a good match for our values, or wanted to adopt our values, and we wouldn't be having problems. I'm going to say it. Our immigration problem isn't nearly as much a factor of the numbers, as it is a factor of exactly who we're letting in.


People who have Hijra or "Make America Mexico Again" on their mind don't belong here. We wouldn't knowingly accept seditioninsts from any other culture, so why should these two groups be so f-ing special?

I'll never pretend to be able to persuade him to our side of the debate.

But I think persuasion won't be what works with him.

Being faced with more instances of the failures of his position, e.g; empirical proofs, will force the reality upon him.

I'm with cooth insofar as not pillorying him, here. And, I'm with you, insofar as not further engaging him, till he on his own, realizes the futility of his arguments, and the error of his ways.

He'll eventually realize the fuckupedness of his positions. Pray only that it's not gone-to-hell-too-late, before he does.

Fact I'd bet my baby shoes money on it.

The terror list "gun show loophole" thing is not about keeping Omar Mateen off the list, the FBI took Mateen off the list after investigating six incidents of threatened Jihad at G4S nee Wackenhut....

Omar is not going to be stopped by CBCs or even "5 year waiting periods for guns if you get on list at all"....

Jeh Johnson's DHS hired him to be an armed security contractor.

Obama is not even going through the motions of pretending "no one is angrier at these federal failures" routine he went through on IRS or Psaki's admitting he lied on Iran being excised.

No Obama wants you and me on the list.

He had his people take the ability to point at Omar and put "fuck?!?!" in the report by removing ANY indicator Islam is a bad touch area.

Actually if you read the Wikipedia article, Toguri D'Aquino probably deserved to be pardoned. She was only one of several 'Tokyo Roses' and there's evidence that she did in fact attempt to thwart the Japanese authorities during her forced broadcasts.

The insidious crap we miscall liberalism these days is insanity. It starts by rejecting the idea of objective truth as far as politics and human relations goes. Without objective truth, cause and effect are divorced from each other, and the outcome of any philosophy, idea, or cause is truly random.

Except that it's not. Western Civilization keeps winning at the game of life, and it drives them utterly bonkers. It's not *fair*. Observation, trial, error, non-Lysenokoist science, and experience don't matter if everything is perfectly random. Their philosophy can only conclude that we are cheaters. They can't look at a fat man and a thin man without concluding that the fat man has been stealing the thin man's food.

When you reject truth, all you have left is lies and madness.

319 From the 'You Can't Make This Up' files:

At the end of the war William and his wife Margaret fled to a town called Flensburg near the German/Denmark border and it was there, in a nearby wood, that Joyce was captured by two soldiers. They, like Joyce, were out looking for firewood. Joyce stopped to say hello and one of the soldiers asked "You wouldn't by any chance be William Joyce, would you?" To 'prove' otherwise, Joyce reached for his false passport and one of the soldiers, thinking he was reaching for a gun, shot him through the buttocks, leaving four wounds.

The arrest was utter poetic justice. The soldier who shot the infamous broadcaster was called Geoffrey Perry, however, he had been born into a German Jewish family as Hourst Pinschewer and had only arrived in England to escape from Hitler's persecutions. So in the end, A German Jew, who had become English had arrested an Irish/American who pretended to be English but had become German.

The 13-year old reportedly orchestrated and directed the assault.

When 13-year old's "refugee" father arrived on scene, he "high-fived" his degenerate son.

Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Here's a Marilyn Monroestory I just read the other day:

After she got engaged to the tiresome playwright Arthur Miller, he suggested that they visit his mother, who still lived in the old coldwater Brooklyn flat that he had grown up in.

So they did, and Miller, Mom and Marilyn had a wonderful time, eating, drinking and talking. At one point, Marilyn had to retreat to the bathroom to answer a call of nature, but, knowing the walls of the flat were nearly paper-thin, she turned on all the faucets to cover up her own sounds.

The next day, Miller called his mother to ask what he thought of Monroe.

"Oh, she's lovely, Arthur, just a wonderful girl," Mama Miller gushed, "But she pisses like a horse!"
