Samson And Delilah
Peter Paul Rubens

One of my favorite biblical stories, and one that was told and read many times to the fidgety youngsters in class.

It is an unfortunate byproduct of activist courts, and more (thank you ACLU) -- exaggerated fear of all things religious -- that the Bible is not taught as literature. ignoring the religious still leaves a vast and marvelous story, full of battles and sword play and veiled sex and travels through deserts and....

14 Go willowed:

I post at a community car website formerly parasitically attached to Jalopnik, so it's full of deranged leftism, but one of the guys there, a professional welder, has a post up (article, really) about the reality of crime in Detroit that's worth a read:
http://oppositelock.kinja.com/detroit-versus-detroit-1791760970

Eye-opening, and heartbreaking. Two of his own cars and three others stolen from a fenced lot, and his entire welding business, gone. Cops running protection rackets. Crooks posing as cops, incompetence, even a press car belonging to a major manufacturer ripped and stripped.

4% of vehicle thefts resolved...

They will have to prioritize the targets, but if they don't know which one is coming next they may end up paralyzed, not wanting to go all-in on a target that proves to be of low priority while a high value one follows.

I wonder if there's the hope to overwhelm the courts to a certain degree and allow Trump to expand the federal judiciary in response.

Probably not a primary reason for the strategy, but possibly a secondary one.

In the story, it was his faithlessness to God that caused him to lose his strength-he valued the relationship with Delilah over his relationship with the Almighty.

Since the Philistines put him on display after capturing him and putting his eyes out, I'm guessing he was still buff, but lacked the ability to do anything with his strength.

I went down to the PD and reported the harassment, and they told me if he does it again, that establishes a pattern and I should get a restraining order. They wrote off the 3 times in one night as him "having an episode."

I told him, I went down to the police station and reported your harassment, and they suggested that if you do it again, that establishes a pattern and I'll get a restraining order, and you know what that means? It means you're out of this building because just by being here you'd be in violation and you can be sure I'll report you. Leave me the f--k alone or else. You've been warned.

63 So Trump is going to announce his SCOTUS nominee at 8pm tomorrow? Let me throw a little conspiracy theory out there: On one of the Sunday shows, there was a reporter (maybe from WaPo? I don't recall) who said the reporters had to take turns covering Trump's twitter feed because the odd hours he was tweeting wouldn't let them sleep.

I have this picture in my head of Trump sleeping with a serene smile at 5AM when a flunkie hits the button on the tweet, knowing he had them up late and awake early. I think he's screwing with them. If he had told me he was going to apply enhanced interrogation techniques on reporters I would have voted for him twice.

86 Rubens is another of the Netherland artists, Baroque in this case, who is amazing. Look what he does with light, texture, skin tones, and placement. Even if the viewer doesn't know the story of Samson, the power of the painting still portrays deceit and a heartbreaking downfall of a hero. Knowing the story just deepens the emotional impact.

Not all of Rubens' works are dark. Look at some of his portraits of royalty, they seem to glow.

I am not formally religious, although I have faith, and even I realize that people are diminished by their distance from knowing the Bible. Having that distance result from cultural attitudes and legal restrictions damages our society.

106 Slightly O/T but art related.

A couple of weeks ago someone (sorry, don't remember who) mentioned the DVD "Tim's Vermeer". I ordered a copy and watched it Friday. It is the story of a Texan, inspired by the book "Vermeer's Camera", tries to recreate the methods that made Vermeer's paintings so different, lifelike, and detailed for the time. Convinced that Vermeer used optical technology of the day, he works out just how it was done. He chose the painting "The Music Lesson" for the test to see if the techniques would let anyone to paint like Vermeer.

Sounds kind of dry, perhaps. Actually, it is a fascinating documentary. Tim learns to grind lenses needed for the devices, create oil paints, use lighting, prepare canvas, and many other matters using only materials and techniques available to Vermeer. They show the people Tim meets with to discuss the effort including, to my surprise, Martin Mull. It's a combination of detective work, innovation, and discovery. In the end, Tim is able, with months of work, to recreate "The Music Lesson" as the finale of several years of effort. (It helps that Tim is a self-made millionaire and inventor.)

The production is top-notch, produced by Penn and Teller. There is also some humor such as when Tim, who plays guitar, picks up the viola da gamba and plays the opening notes of 'Smoke on the Water'. Even though I'm only marginally able to understand the technology involved I found the process to be riveting. And the actual painting process was fascinating and revealing. The attention to detail, more than most viewers even see in the painting, was eye opening.
I really gained a greater appreciation of art and artistic technique. This is a Blu-Ray with DVD version and worth every penny.

Sorry for the wall of words.

Yep. The shooters were angry that the mosque was too moderate.

The following video sheds some light on what may actually have happened
in Quebec City tonight. It's taken from the Facebook page of the mosque
that was attacked. In it you'll hear the imam of the mosque discuss the
enmity of former members of the congregation who were unhappy with the
blasphemous "moderation" of this mosque --- that is, the shot-up mosque
was full of murtadeen, or apostates.


They were extremists - just not what the Left wants to acknowledge.

Being obsessed at one time about the Sea Peoples, the Hittites and the change between the Late Bronze age and the early Iron age, I ran across a lecture of Aren Maeir who is excavating the site of the Biblical city of Gath, which was a major Philistine city on the fontier with the Israelites.

Very interesting stuff on the melange of cultural bits showing influences from across the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as DNA studies of animals, reviews of cooking equipment and so on.

So, this morning the front page of our paper has an article devoted to the wymyn who attended the March for Death in DC.

You'll be shocked to know a local Methodist church gave them a "safe space" (the words of the pastor) to speak.

Then, there's an AP piece titled: "Miltary: First-known comba death since Trump took office."

And so the death tally under Trump begins.

Oh, and there's one more stunner. A letter writer sez under Trump we'll be killing hundreds of innocent people with our military death machine. I guess TFG's drones didn't count.

The image that immediately came to mind was that poor child in Texas whose shari'a father killed her because she like a non-muslim boy. Her cries pleading for her father to stop killing her were captured on the 911 tape.

Is the left doing the same thing, though? Are they really just appealing to their hard core base and making no effort to reach out?

Until there's written legislation, everything is an opening gambit in a negotiation.

It's nice to have a politician who doesn't start out with exactly what they want and watch it get watered down as the left negotiates in only one direction.

330 Four days ago President Enrique Pena issued a youtube speech and a twitter post stating that Mexico would not pay for the wall, and other than that the obligation for the government is to protect the rights and safety of citizens both at home and abroad. He also stated that any negotiation would be done from the goal of getting the best deal for Mexico.

I for one am pleased that the President of Mexico has remembered the reason for a government instead of being a machine to oppress his citizens to optimize corruption.

Oh, and the speech and twitter post were in Spanish only, no English or any other translation. Very exclusive.

all, they are shooting at us (border agents, residents, etc.). The
Mexican military has made incursions across the border into the U.S.
All of which are hostile acts of which more than war has been started over.
.

.
.When Mexico's Military crosses the border that is an Act of War and Trump will not let that go like obama and Bush did.

There was an article in the Sherman TX newspaper the other day about how the wall will destroy the towns of El Paso and Juarez because everyone there freely crosses the border without any issues now. They got a case of the vapors that people will actually have to go through border crossing stations when the wall is built and that will destroy the economy of both towns and Juarez will become more of a hell hole than it already is.

I love the F-22 but it does not excel as an attack or strike aircraft. It requires an entire redesign to make it carrier capable, whereas the F-35 is VSTOL, benefiting the Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force when a full service airfield is not available.
They are completely different aircraft with separate missions. Even though you can strap some JDAM's or other ordnance in the F-22, it is not an effective close air support platform, the F-35 is not an air superiority fighter, it is a close air support aircraft that can conduct rudimentary air-to-air combat if required. But they are both necessary to replace the 40 and 50 year old airframes of the AV-8B Harriers, F-15's, F-16's and the F/A-18 Hornets.

When one door closes another opens. Big deal. I cook at home anyway 99.99% of the time. So we pay more to eat out or stay at a hotel. More than offset by the money saved - and lives saved - that does not get siphoned off to illegals and the FSA.

I'll take that tradeoff any day.

A fine sentiment, but the people in those states will actually have to sign the petitions. They all voted for McCain in the primary (The R's at least), and I doubt the D voters in AZ would want to remove someone who stabs his own side in the back all the time.

393 I love the F-22 but it does not excel as an attack or strike aircraft. It requires an entire redesign to make it carrier capable, whereas the F-35 is VSTOL, benefiting the Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force when a full service airfield is not available.
They are completely different aircraft with separate missions. Even though you can strap some JDAM's or other ordnance in the F-22, it is not an effective close air support platform, the F-35 is not an air superiority fighter, it is a close air support aircraft that can conduct rudimentary air-to-air combat if required. But they are both necessary to replace the 40 and 50 year old airframes of the AV-8B Harriers, F-15's, F-16's and the F/A-18 Hornets.
Posted by: The Mouse that Roared at January 30, 2017 11:00 AM (7N6ox)

I'm not saying it is the best 'every type of aircraft'. It is indisputably the best FIGHTER ever designed.

We still need CAS (A-10's are perfect, don't change them), carrier aircraft, etc, as you say.

Actually, I think the number of airframes operated by the US Military in the 80's was probably about right. F-16 for a fighter, F-15 for a multirole platform, F-14/18 for carriers, and some nasty mothers like the A-10 for CAS/Tactical stuff.

The IDEA of the F-35 doesn't bother me. Its execution has been, less than ideal.

The pro-military is part of it.

The other part is that he's a really good politician. He loves the state, and the state knows it. He comes here all the time and does town halls. The people meet him and he talks to them.

He's also as in control of the state party as anyone else.

I've lived in Metro Detroit for most of my life, and worked downtown for six years. I'm one of those people who go through red lights after midnight if I feel threatened.

Here's the thing: Detroit has gone feral. It went feral after the riots in the 60's.

The media loves to talk up the city, but it's all complete and utter propaganda. When people from out of town talk about buying houses for $100, I laugh at them. They're wasting their money. If the house was $1 they're be wasting that dollar.

There are only a few groups that live in the city:
1. black criminals and welfare baby mommas
2. elderly blacks and whites that are too poor to leave
3. whites who MUST live in city because of a job/ DUI

BTW... I was careful when I worked downtown and nothing happened to me. Don't want to work down there ever again.

This is why our founders required Senators to be appointed by the governor of the state they represent. They could be recalled by the legislature. They were beholden to a state's legislature, not working on their next election and catering to big donors.

Then the progressives convinced a large percentage of Americans that Senators being appointed was "undemocratic"(we aren't a democracy, but by then the progressive infiltration of the American mind was well under way). So the 17th amendment was ratified by 36 state legislatures after popular votes in those states, etc.

And now we have the same issue in the senate that we have in the House, only on a more serious and larger scale because only two senators represent entire states. And spend the vast amount of their time catering to donors, and worrying about getting reelected for term after so they can enrich themselves.

Samson by Regina Spektor

I'm a Regina Spektor fan. IIRC, "Samson" was her breakout hit. A producer listening to the song for first time couldn't believe someone that young (I think she was 20 or 21 at the time) could compose something that sophisticated.

I'm reading a biography of James Buchanan and this gets brought up a fair bit.

The politics of Pennsylvania changed rather radically while Buchanan was senator, and he had the choice of following instructions from the suddenly antagonistic state legislature or resigning. He was a spineless man, so he talked big against things he didn't like but voted the way the legislature wanted.

Not that is matters for McCain as he's not up in 6 years and supposedly his "people" are saying its his last term.

The big problem why McCain can't get knocked off is conservatives simply don't give his primary challengers any money, but McCain walks in with like a $20 million war chest every time.

My plan with both of these as an AZ voter is probably to just start voting Democrat for that office if they keep getting through their primary.

It was horrific. From what he told me, I probably would have gotten a "migraine" and left due to my "health".

Gist: You're white and had advantages? You should feel bad about yourself. Really, really bad. And you were required to share your feelings about your guilt with the group.

BTW, my friend didn't feel guilty. He's marked for the FEMA camps.

What did they accomplish?

They p*ssed off the white people who were supposed to feel bad about themselves.

Then made the blacks who did not have the same advantages feel bad about themselves, and dislike the white employees who did things like "have their parents help them with their homework as a child."

Basically, this actually made the working environment much worse, and created issues between individuals and departments that were never there before.

But it made the NBA happy.

Not that is matters for McCain as he's not up in 6 years and supposedly his "people" are saying its his last term.

The big problem why McCain can't get knocked off is conservatives simply don't give his primary challengers any money, but McCain walks in with like a $20 million war chest every time.

My plan with both of these as an AZ voter is probably to just start voting Democrat for that office if they keep getting through their primary.

Agree. It destroyed the design of the American government which was done with historical review and experience. The founders knew the House, with representatives directly elected by the people in small, close districts, often just neighborhoods at the time of farming communities, would be prone to mob rule and pressure over events and would vote emotionally and with thought of being reelected for those who were politically ambitious.

Senators were to be more removed from that pressure by having an entire state to represent, with it's various farms, towns, cities, ports, borders, etc. and were to be deliberative and a "cooling off' place for hysterical legislation passed by the House. They could only be removed or appointed by a state governor, who also represented an entire state.

with Senators being elected, now they only represent whatever district in their state funds their campaigns and brings them lobbying dollars.

Hence why you have situations such as Michigan where we have a Rep. gov. Republican legislature, and two worthless Democrat Senators. A Republican candidate for the Senate cannot get enough funding to actually run a campaign to over come the Democrat machine.

Kinda.

You know what gets politicians re-elected? It isn't their positions. It is constituent service. If you get stuff done for constituents you will get re-elected. That is the big reason why incumbency is so powerful. it isn't just money. It is that you can do stuff for people that a non-incumbent can't. Like getting somebody's mother's Medicare bill straightened out. You do that, they don't care about how you voted on this or that committee vote.

Really.

Graham is from roughly the same area as Strom Thrumond, and he was elected to the seat that Thurmond held. He inherited a lot of Thurmond's staff. And Strom was the longest serving Senator, ever, because he excelled at constituent service.

Graham's staff continues in that tradition. And he will continue to get re-elected until he stops.

601 "Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didn't fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland," the "Meet the Press" host admitted Thursday to former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a interview for the "1947" podcast.

"And I think it was a fear of, 'Oh, is it going to look like it's sexist, anti-woman if we say that?'" he added, pointing out that on the hustings he saw numerous "Hillary for Prison" signs adorning the front yards of rural America.

"I think we underplayed it a little bit out of political correctness fears," Mr. Todd said. "No member of the press corps wants to look like they're singling out a group and making a group feel bad, right, whatever that [group] is.

"If we sort of were straight-up honest and blunt about hey do we understand the level of hatred that's out there and you know, all the Hillary for Prison signs that are out there, we certainly would have at least made the viewer know, hey, you know, she's not well-liked in some places in this country in ways that's times 10 when it comes to Trump," he said.

--- Chuck Todd


"'Hillary for Prison' signs adorning the front yards of rural America"

There is a subtle message in those signs that just isn't expressed in "she's not well-liked".
It's the message that these folks don't like her not because she is a woman, perhaps not even because she is a Democrat, but because they believe she acted in a manner as Secretary of State that is described by the US Code as illegal.

Got the call this morning. There's a hole in the universe where my eldest brother (73) used to be. (Been waiting for this for a week and a half since he was sedated. Cancer -- and apparently enough related med malpractice complications to make him untreatable.)

He had eyes that looked right through you. Never see them again in this life.

655 Immigration during that stretch '29 - '65 was very very low. Yes, there were some what we now call "family unification" exceptions that kept up a trickle.


It baffles science, but during that period, especially of course the latter half, the US not only produced the greatest economic and technological booms in human history, but some of the greatest social "progress" as well.


Why, it's almost as if every single myth and trope about immigration being required for x, y, and z - regardless of everything else, in context - is, dunno, ignorant nonsense? Hard to imagine.

696 I didn't see a link to who in Mexico said they might send in their armed cartel armies, but I did hear some official there saying the drugs were not their problem, it was our fault because we buy them.

Yet they are against the wall. They are a narco state, more and more. And dems like Holder seemed happy to supply them with weapons. Dems are the party of organized crime, as far as I can tell. At some point we will have to confront the various mobs ... Chinese, Russian, MS-13 ... there is no reason these should be functioning in this country, except that they have roots deep in government. Maybe we cleaned up some of the most violent elements, but at the same time perhaps they also infiltrated more deeply into our cities.

And speaking of such crime/terrorism. Any "protest" organized by wealthy "donors" with intent to cause economic destruction (blocking highways or airports) is not free speech, it becomes criminal very quickly. The left feels if they can create enough "chaos" (by detailed planning to obstruct and break things) that our government must yield and obey them. This has been the leftist plan of subversion for decades ... it is their version of jihad.

Exactly the point I made when confronted with the news of Christian refugee family that was turned away from PHL. Evidently their process had begun in 2003. So...
Five years of Compassionate Conservative Bush didn't help them. Followed by 8 years of obama, who threw the door open for everyone.

And their attorney should be sued for malpractice. He should have told them once DJT was elected: GET YOUR BEHINDS OVER THERE NOW.

Instead they celebrated the holidays with family in Syria before getting on the plane to join their relatives here. So I'm not laying this one at DJT's doorstep.

I lived in Rome for a little more than a year, and my first exposure to real protests was there.

I didn't use much public transportation because I was poor, so I walked everywhere. When I couldn't get through a Piazza to get to work because hundreds of dumb college students waving Soviet flags were blocking everything due to the idea floating at the time that college students should pay SOMETHING for their education, I lost all sympathy.

If I were a voting Italian, I would have determined to never support them ever.

I think that experience is analogous to low information voters in America who don't really know what's going on, but who DO have the power to vote.

This covers short-term business/pleasure travel visas, claim they're not able to compile data on student visas (where is probably where most of the overstays are from places like India, China, Saudi, etc.)

The places with very high percentages generally seem to have very low numbers, indicating that 10-25% of the short-term visa admittees had fraudulent intent from the beginning.

The Visa Waiver Program countries with the highest overstay numbers and percentages are - not too surprisingly - failed European economies: Italy, Spain, Portugal.

The problem places with high numbers seem to be in the 2.5-10% range.

There's a lot of money to be made for city legislators to sell off taxi licenses.

Plus there's that whole thing about Uber demonstrating that free markets and competition actually works to bring low prices and stellar service to consumers.

820 "The Visa Waiver Program countries with the highest overstay numbers and percentages are - not too surprisingly - failed European economies: Italy, Spain, Portugal."

Unpossible. My liberal friends and family inform me that Europe is a huge economic success story whose philosophies and policies must be emulated by the backward USA if we know what's good for us.

Latest rumors:

Trump will pick Hardiman for SCOTUS. I was hoping for Gorsuch or The Kraken. But I think he will be ok.

Assad of Syria rumored to have a stroke. That would throw a new wrinkle into things.

831 "My local librarian has a We're All Muslims Today banner on her FB page."

Bibliophiles, to include librarians, once evinced horror at Islam's long history of destroying droves of non-Islamic books.

However, modern "librarians" have increasingly little interest in protecting or preserving books. Here's how it now works in the libraries of the University of Commiefornia under Big Sis Janet Napolitano:

833 I can't figure out what the left has against Uber. Taxi drivers, sure, its competition. But what is the problem for the left?
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at January 30, 2017 12:32 PM (39g3+)

There's a lot of money to be made for city legislators to sell off taxi licenses.

Uber messes that up...taxi operators aren't willing to bribe city government officials for their seals if they don't have to.

Plus there's that whole thing about Uber demonstrating that free markets and competition actually works to bring low prices and stellar service to consumers.

Plus, when lots of people become independent contractors and start cutting a quarterly check to the IRS and state gov't instead of just automatically getting it taken out of your paycheck, you start to get conservative real quick. It's MUCH different psychologically.


I'm not one to usually engage in politics with strangers, but for whatever reason like every driver for uber I've had has been REALLY conservative.

839 I suggest that if you're a conservative/Libertarian from his state, you contact Chuck Schumer and tell him that you find his games playing unacceptable. It's dangerous to the U.S.

840 And sorry if this seems like spam. but the bit I heard from Rush Limbaugh today said that since the media is against Trump and the RINO are waffling, that Trump really needs the support of his base. If you haven't already done so, send an e-mail to Trump's office today saying that you support the temporary band on people coming from known terrorist countries:
