The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

These are the fellow travelers of the progressive movement. There are hundreds of thousands of them, and they are carefully cultivated so that they can be called up at a moment's notice to swell the crowds at whatever protest needs bodies. It is a testament to the superior organizational ability of the left, and a very dangerous thing indeed.

Anyone care to bet that there was a large contingent of hardline socialist and communist organizations there, complete with signs and banners, but the MSM carefully ignored them?

This video has been floating around for several days (I think it was posted in an ONT last week), but I think it is worth watching again. And just to be clear; the graph of the IQs of Down Syndrome people overlaps that of regular folks. That means that there is a segment of the Down Syndrome population who have higher IQs than a segment of the non-Down Syndrome population. And if you compare them to Congress it's even more impressive.


But on another level this is simply chilling. Nazi Germany has nothing on the modern European state.
******

Here is the Washington Post's pet "conservative."

What poor little Jenny doesn't understand because she is too stupid and insular and ignorant of what real Americans think, is that there is no "white grievance." It is "American Grievance," and the anger is directed at people exactly like her, and that's how we got Trump!

63 Was there a thread on the Panera data leak yesterday?

What a cluster that is.

Their Director of Information Security was Equifax's Sr Director of Security Operations.

A white hat informed this massive black hole of suck that Panera's website was broadcasting customer information to anyone with a web-browser and the right URL.

After first accusing the white hat of being unprofessional, and warning him they weren't going to be blackmailed, they finally accepted the tip and promised to work on it.

Seven months later, after seeing zero progress, the white hat passes the information to other security researchers, who go on to publish the information. Panera goes on Fox two hours later and claims only 10K users are affected, the problem is fixed, and they somehow know nobody used the leaked information.

Big problem though, they didn't fix anything, and Krebs estimates 37 million customers affected. After demonstrating the website still was gushing customer PII, and finding some more Panera websites were affected, they took all their sites offline.

So basically if you used their online systems to order Panera, your information is probably out there.

96 Marx found that often the strongest defenders of capitalism were the petite bourgeoisie that had elevated themselves from craftsmen or workers into shop owners. They barely qualified as capitalists, but they saw their membership in the ownership class as essential to their self-definition and fiercely defended it. Today the lowest members of the knowledge or professional class are journalists, and that's why Jennifer Rubin is so sneering and nasty.

97 It amazes me (well, not really I guess) how much the left viscerally HATES differing thoughts/opinions.

Take FOX news. Look at the rabid, foaming at the mouth seething hatred a single solitary cable news network gets. There are literally 20 left wing 'news' outlets to for every conservative 'news' outlets.

It boils down very simply and frighteningly to this:

They wan't total eradication of anything and anyone that dares to have a thought outside those that are currently sanctioned and deemed 'appropriate'.

Mobs of uneducated hateful slobs roaming our cities and towns in search of the next life to set on fire. Action needs to be taken against these insane people. They need to be shocked back into their own little safe spaces and learn the hard way that maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't run around threatening to kill those they disagree with and instead could attempt to open a real dialogue that they clamor on about Ad nauseam

Take the second amendment issue as a perfect example.

They start out with phrases like "comprehensive reform", "bi-partisan solutions", "national discussion" and "gun control" at the beginning. Then as they get more bold, the truth comes out which is complete and total confiscation of all firearms and a repeal of the second amendment.

Even just last week we were lectured on how silly a notion it was for us Deplorables to even FATHOM such a ridiculous and fear mongering idea. We get lectured and laughed at for trying to sound the alarm on the very thing the left claims we were so bitterly clung to but is attempting to do exactly that.

No. Subway has bread that wants to kill me.

I assume it's the bread, the meats and veggies look harmless enough. There's something about the way they have the dough ready to be baked in store that must be full of death.

I went through a Subway phase because hey cheap fast looks and tastes good, but always ended up with an aftertaste of death.

No, Panera is an entirely different animal. Subway is school lunchroom tables. Panera has carpet and comfy chairs and if you're in a phase of life where you don't have wifi you can buy one refillable coffee mug and enjoy the fake fireplace as long as you want.

Yes, but with at least a couple of advantages.

2. Panera's a step up in quality in pretty much everything you can get at a Subway, and then some.

190 The Mexican Economy minister in Auguest 2017 threatened to flood US with third world immigrants if they did not get a favorable deal on NAFTA.

https://tinyurl.com/y9lbzdbg

bold move since they make out like bandits on the deal. And they make out like bandits on sending illegals here that send back billions in remittances.

The "you didn't build that" quote works in this instance. America built the infrastructure and educated the builders and entrepreneurs, and the profits should go to the communities where those (built) resources are deployed. But instead Mexico comes up here and rapes us, does the work and lives partly on welfare, and sends profits back to Mexico.

And it is not only the dollars the exit, it is the confiscation of our culture as our population is flooded with 10 illegals for each one that gets a visa, and they live in their own communities, breaking codes and laws, dependent on others that pay taxes.

Something that may be interesting in the future is that there is now a blood test to confirm autism with a very high level of accuracy. Perhaps the test will be even be able to be performed on the fetus. Since the Obama administration lumped both autism and high level functioning Asperger under the same name of ''autism'' it's going to be an interesting event for the abortion supporters.

I know a high functioning Asperger person who supports abortion. As much as I attempt to avoid this person because of his/her leftist views I'm sorely tempted to ask what he/she thinks of this development.

eh, you should look at the record of younger sons of the royal family for that last 2 or 3 centuries. Harry is by far better than average for that lot.

One of the reasons Victoria became known for having such strict moral standards is that she (and her advisers) were trying to make a very conscious and public statement that under her, the Royals were no longer going to act the way they always had in the past. But it didn't stick, of course.

First time I ever saw that one (3 threads old).

I've read a few times that if it's still on the recent-posts menu on the front page, it's safe to comment.

Some suspect the actual timing is based on a complicated formula involving the weather in New Zealand and the phase of the moon.

Nobody really knows. No cob, not Ace, not Pixy, not the hamsters, maybe Bob at the NSA but he's not talking. It's all murky and arbitrary, and worst of all threatens banning unwary innocent customers of the site, just to thwart spammers.

Seems simple enough to me that if a thread
is (a) a certain age
or (b) so many posts down
or (c) comments slacked off to zero for more than two hours...
whatever the criteria...
when that thread is aged out and flagged as no longer open for comments, just replace the comment input with a line that says comments are closed. Voila! No ticked-off autobanned innocent customers!

Some greasy substance was flowing out of some ventilation cover, directly over where the sandwiches are assembled. It looked like a drip was forming, ready to drop. I nearly upchucked my lunch.

They can't allow one of these invaders in.

Oh and hows about arresting these people who sponsored this stuff? They violating the law.

The entire problem would be shrunk to manageable dimensions just by putting businesses who hire illegals out of business.

Go in, weed them out, fine the business enough to pay for the arrest and deportation, fine the business for any illegal who has stolen an ID. Make the illegal pay a fine also.

Anyone wants a Visa, they must produce a return nonrefundable ticket back to their country and must carry it on their person at all times. We can track airplane tickets can't we? That ticket number will be on the Visa. Overstay the visa, escort to the airport and off they go. No muss, no fuss, no court proceedings.

Frankly they should have certain sections of border declared a free fire zone.

BUT IN REALITY - the so-called caravan is stuck in a field over 1,000 miles away from the US border and all of their transportation and plans for transportation have broken down. They've got no food, they've got no shelter, and their plans to walk another 1,000 miles to the US border are looking pretty idiotic right now.

Filed last night to counter Manafort's argument Mueller went beyond his scope. Daily Caller said it was "heavily redacted" which makes me wonder if the redacted part dealt with permission to also move into Trump's personal finances, etc. Seems interesting that Rosenstein did not make this public, if just Manafort focussed. Also, would have been right after he signed the FISA extension on Carter Page.

equivalents, at least for Excel and Powerpoint. What has been your
experience?


Posted by: Huck Follywood, I'm your Huckleberry! at April 03, 2018 12:09 PM (LISuA)

I haven't used LibreOffice for any work-related stuff. Works fine for my limited personal needs. I have OpenOffice on this Win7 box right here, and it sort of chokes on the work-related files I do, both .docs and spreadsheets. It will open the MS-native files, but it loses some of the formatting, and my modified files, once saved, have formatting fuckups when re-opened in Word or Excel. "Tables" in Word documents are particularly bad.
To get nit-picky, using Word and Excel, I can open a text file of data, say well survey numbers obtained from the directional driller, by importing it into Excel, then re-arrange the columns to fit the standard format of the report I generate, and paste from Excel into a blank Word table in the template report. Which is a huge time saver over retyping it all. That won't work in OpenOffice.
I need too buy a copy of Office 2007. My leaders at work are also resisting moving to Win10. Doing "confidential" work in a cloud environment is worrisome.

Has anyone (thinking Jack Straw, perhaps?) seen the Rosenstein memo of 8/2/2017 that gave Mueller the green-light to go outside the Russia mandate? Filed last night to counter Manafort's argument Mueller went beyond his scope. Daily Caller said it was "heavily redacted" which makes me wonder if the redacted part dealt with permission to also move into Trump's personal finances, etc. Seems interesting that Rosenstein did not make this public, if just Manafort focussed. Also, would have been right after he signed the FISA extension on Carter Page.

Posted by: Ever at April 03, 2018 12:11 PM (OLS0m)


Saw it on TGP this morning. It is a non-response to the Manafort motion to dismiss. If that is the extent of their position, which I expect it isn't - then Mueller is toast.

The gist of the Manafort motion - for those not aware - is that Sessions only recused for matters relating to the election and campaign of 2016, and thus, Sessions retains authority for all of Mueller's ultra vires forays into anything and everything under the sun to create leverage against Manafort and others.

Read it but as you noted it was heavily redacted. From what I've read of the accompanying legal response to Manafort's dismissal of charges it appears largely focused on going after Manafort (and by extension his partner Gates) for financial crimes unrelated to Trump.

Special counsels don't have any powers that normal prosecutors don't have so i don't think that's the reason.

It could just be convenience, Mueller was already investigating Mueller so maybe it was jus easier to let Mueller do it.

I honestly don't care about Manafort or Gates. They are apex swamp creatures and seem to have no problem taking money from some pretty nasty people to try and influence US policy. I'd rather he was prosecuted through proper channels but the DOJ has let this kind of stuff go on for years so I can't say I'm going to lose any sleep over Mueller putting the screws to him.

"This whole thing is a media creation designed to aggravate Trump, and aggravate us. But it's backfiring. "

It's a gift to Trump. If he plays it right, he can do an end run around the congressional cucks and communists and finally seal down the border. His hand is free when it is a coordinated invasion, and Mexico is involved to such a degree it amounts to a hostile act. How novel: using the American military to defend Americans.

446 IRC, Rubin was an entertainment lawyer in Hollywood before being hired as WashPost's "conservative" columnist. She's about as conservative as Andrew Sullivan.

There's a fun quote in her wiki page from someone who used to work with her back in those days. He's some sort of labor union stooge. He says his impression of her was always that she was just a Democrat and he's totally shocked at her current "hard right" stance.

If he thinks Rubin is "hard right" now, his idea of a plain old Democrat is probably just to the right of Mao.

Posted by: bonhomme at April 03, 2018 12:34 PM (iv0p7)

447 Does this Rubin not understand that every word spoken by Hillary Clinton is soaked in gin, hatred, resentment and delusion?

In other words, she's spouting Progressive hate speech.

And so is anyone who says, "toxic masculinity, "all whites are racist oppressors" or "teh patriarchy."

Let's start calling their hate speech what it actually is and start demanding that they be silenced. To hell with this one-sidedness.

448 This talk of long distance traveling reminded me of a family story I never knew about til recently. My father's father died in 1974, and he was always a sick man who didn't care to talk much when I knew him. I could never think of him as anything other than that, but talking with my dad recently he told me a story that gave me a whole new light on Grandad - he had wanted to sign up for the Army in WW1, but he was 17 and an older brother had already gone, so his parents wouldn't let him do it. He got mad and left home in South Dakota to go out and be a cowboy on a ranch in Wyoming.

But he got homesick as Christmas approached, and so in December 1918 he rode his horse all the way from Cody, Wyoming, to Sisseton South Dakota, a distance of about 700 miles. Timed it so that he surprised them all and rode in on Christmas Day.

Now that was one hell of a ride.

453 I honestly don't care about Manafort or Gates. They are apex swamp creatures and seem to have no problem taking money from some pretty nasty people to try and influence US policy. I'd rather he was prosecuted through proper channels but the DOJ has let this kind of stuff go on for years so I can't say I'm going to lose any sleep over Mueller putting the screws to him.

Posted by: JackStraw at April 03, 2018 12:31 PM (/tuJf)

Neither do I. I'm not partial to one law-breaker as another. But it's the "lying to the FBI" charges that are BS.

Also I read of Manafort's work in the Ukraine, he was a media and campaign consultant for politicians of thawing tyrannies that were just starting to get to the point of needing consultants. He even suggested a very-pro-Putin client of his appeal to the West (to strategically move away from Putin). How trying to smooth relations between the Ukraine and the West became a case that he was an unreported agent of the Ukraine is beyond reasonable inference (from what I read).

But going against Manafort and Gates on things unrelated to Trump, and separately, unrelated to Russia, kind of says that they don't need anybody to do the job that much of America thinks he is doing.

Wow, it's almost like that was the plan...hey, that's a YUGE Corps of Engineers convoy headed to the border...

I just read--but have not verified, that the permit for this so called March for Our Lives was gained long before the Paarkland event. I wonder if they would have just put any grievance out there or what?

Posted by: AnnaS at April 03, 2018 12:51 PM (l4l/z)


There was a youtube video floating around that shows the permit for the DC Mall dated 2/20/18.

I posted last night.

The domain name registration was on 2/17/18, only three days after the murders.

It's the Middle East. Once you figure it out, write it down and publish it and I'll buy the first volume.

Which will be outdated the very next day.

517 "But using the military to guard the border, particularly against an
organized invasion, makes perfect sense. Crappy duty though, sounds
like something you get when you're late back from leave."

Nah, it's good training. Especially the night intercepts.

519 I honestly don't care about Manafort or Gates. They are apex swamp
creatures and seem to have no problem taking money from some pretty
nasty people to try and influence US policy. I'd rather he was
prosecuted through proper channels but the DOJ has let this kind of
stuff go on for years so I can't say I'm going to lose any sleep over
Mueller putting the screws to him.

Unfortunately, the old saying 'there but for the grace of god go I' is operating here. Yes, nobody really cares about the individuals involved, but I truly care about our laws being subverted. The nastiest alleged murderer is still entitled to a vigorous defense and if the prosecution, with all the weight of the government behind it, cheats: the government has failed. They may all be swamp things, but I will not sit aside and allow our laws to be twisted because someone is not taking money from the 'right' people.

520 "I always thought that the military should have training exercises at the border, great places to learn about infiltration, use of night vision, drones, capture, interrogation, etc."

Let's not call it a border control issue.
We simply create Camp Gringo. A training Base.

521 425 But Linux has improved a lot since then.

Yeah. Improved. That's the ticket.

I've been working on an embedded application for a while. Theory being that Linux automatically logs into the account that runs the app and when the app exits, the system shuts down.

Now that I've got it all figured out, I'm putting together a unit for cow-orkers to fiddle with. Instead of shutting down, I get error messages that make zero sense.

Well, just in the couple years I've been dicking around with this app, things have changed. Instead of just plunking the appropriate entry in sudoers, something called PolicyKit has sprung up. Except its official actual name seems to be "polkit", despite what the mysterious error messages say. Now I have to figure out how to make polkit bless a user account shutting down the system.

This was also apparently a surprise for the folks that put the distro I'm using together, since they didn't bother to install polkit, so I have to figure out how to do that, too.

And the system involved isn't connected to the network, so that means I have to figure out what bits it needs to download, download them to something else, then move them to the target system.

grumble, grumble, grumble.

And if the gangs/Mexican military begins to feel froggy and fires upon our troops, then it becomes a live fire training exercise.

526 The water problems in Iran make interesting reading. Hmmm.. farmers drilling more wells than can be sustained, land sinking as aquifers are drained, floodwaters not being allowed to replenish the aquifers... It sounds like.... California!
