The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"GOP Senator Roger Wicker was interviewed on Meet The Press this weekend and after F. Chuck Todd in his biased intro, Wicker started out by saying, quote, let me say this, Chuck, I just have to start, I totally disagree with your lead-in to this whole show today, unquote.

This is a good example of how you fight the narrative. You refuse to accept it, you basically throw it on the floor at the very beginning and, for good measure, pee on it.

Here are some other things you can say to accomplish this:

"Well, Chuck, Pretty much every word you just said is false, including 'a', 'and' and 'the'.

"I'm sorry, Mr. Cooper, whatever you said set off all of my bullshit detectors and I didn't hear a word of it. But let me say this...

"Well, Norah, that's how a shill for the Democrats would frame the debate, but we're here to discuss reality and not the Democrats' wishful thinking.

"I don't think those talking points that have been faxed to you by the DNC are even close to being accurate, Jake.

"Brian, you look like a genetically-engineered potato.

"All Republicans and GOP spokespersons need to learn to do this. The problem for so long has been that the Democrats set the framework, the media accept it and the Republicans follow along. Then they spend the rest of the time playing catch-up.

"It never works."

20 From the last thread


It's interesting that the Army's Delta Force was used to eliminate al-Baghdadi. For the last 10+ years, it's been the SEALs doing every special op that has been revealed to the public. I'll bet the Army-Navy Pentagon and White House wrangling over this subject has been more vicious than any battle in the past 1500 years.

Something is wrong with the SEALs or their leadership. I read that 154 Tridents have been taken away since 2011. I don't know the size of the SEAL force but that seems it could be a pretty high percentage .

54 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. At least this is going to be a short week.

Don't know who dis, though she looks a bit like Donna Dixon. Everyone knows the Hoff, though.

It was a nasty, cold, rainy day yesterday, so I finished a new book, The Ship of Dreams: The Sinking of the Titanic and the End of the Edwardian Era by Gareth Russell. It is, of course, a retelling of the great ship's sinking, but rather than a huge cast of characters, the author has us follow four - Thomas Andrews, the designer; Jack Thayer, a young, clean-cut teen who was traveling with his wealthy father and mother; the Countess of Rothes, a wealthy aristocrat who was one of the heroines of the disaster; and Dorothy Gibson, a popular film star who, only days after being rescued, climbed back into the clothes she wore the night of April 14 to film the (now lost) Saved from the Titanic, the first film about the wreck.

Pleasant reading, if the subject interests you, with some nice digressions on why no bodies were found on the wreck and why it would have been impossible (as a conspiracy theory claims) for Titanic and her sister Olympic to have been switched as part of a gigantic insurance fraud.

Here's something that will inspire a rant or two: Kate Blanchett is currently filming a tv mini-series on Phyllis Schlafly. A hit-job on her, not a flattering depiction of her contributions to America.

This is what the Left does: they make sure that whatever narratives they've set stick, decades later by making sure that the younger generations have been indoctrinated with whatever smears they used on their enemies back then. See also HBO making sure AIDS is blamed on Reagan and the current move and Showtime series making sure that the only Media sexual harassment people will know about/remember will be Fox News' Roger Ailes.

The old left-right dichotomy had broken down. Social conservatism has largely failed to conserve anything, and the left doesn't stand for anything but power.

The great conflict of this century will be the individual versus the collective, whether we are to reform and continue as a representative government, or sustain our decline into the rule of an unelected bureaucracy that is above the law.

We're basically back to Republicans vs. Monarchists. Curiously, in the original French definitions, that makes us the Left.

And I've been pointing out this exact problem, and the obvious solution [as we both noted], for years, and have told the tale of an excruciating experience where precisely this approach was suggested to a high-level personage about to do an interview with a major Euro media outlet on one of the big world stories of the day. He agreed, even seemed to understand how this was the only sensible way to proceed - then utterly failed to implement the approach in the interview, just minutes later.

I still don't see how Pelosi unrolls impeachment. However, she is some type of weasel, and I would not be surprised to have her just use baldfaced lies to justify whatever she is going to do.

Pelosi and Schiff and all those Dems (including Hillary) have stated categorically that the President has committed impeachable offenses, and have been trying to shame Republicans into going along with the impeachment by saying that they are reusing to hold him accountable.

If they don't impeach, then they are complicit. I know, hypocrisy isn't going to stop them. But their base is going to hold them to that.

I think the only refuge will be for Nancy to claim that the President and the administration and Republicans in the House and Senate are so corrupt that they are going to be able get away with obstructing justice (did you know that the Attorney General was handpicked by Trump? HAND. PICKED!)

And then use that to say well this is why in 2020 you need to vote for Dems in the House and Senate and Presidency.

163 76 It's almost like the dem base doesn't know that Schiff's committee is just drafting a report to send to Nadler's committee.

Posted by: sniffybigtoe at November 25, 2019 11:37 AM (1ISKN)


Yeah, and I don't expect the Judiciary Committee to hold any hearings with witnesses. Only to vote on sending the Schiff-approved Articles to the full House.

I believe that's today's plan, but Pelosi and Company may have to change it after Schiff's schiff-show,

As I see it, from the testimony I've heard and read to-date, they have a very weak circumstantial case for Trump "bribing" Zelenski with release of foreign aid in return for "digging up dirt on the Bidens." They think they have a solid case for Obstruction of Congress. According to strict reading of applicable laws, perhaps so.

However, I cannot see the Senate (nor SCOTUS if it gets there) going along with an Obstruction of Congress charge for the Executive Branch's denial of requests to hand-over documents and to allow Cabinet Officers and Presidential advisors to testify. If they do so, it's the end of Executive Privilege. Because it will set a precedent of Congress getting any documents or any official's testimony from the Executive Branch, merely by opening an impeachment "inquiry."

The Battle of Camden is a big deal in SC. Sadly, Cornwallis defeated the patriots. A lot of Carolinians (N. and S.) died there, almost all militia.
-----
"According to Charles Stedman, one of Cornwallis' officers, "The road for some miles was strewn with the wounded and killed who had been overtaken by the legion in their pursuit. The numbers of dead horses, broken wagons, and baggage scattered on the road formed a perfect scene of horror and confusion: Arms, knapsacks, and accoutrements found were innumerable; such was the terror and dismay of the Americans."

When you understand that Brexit in the UK, and anger at illegal immigration, in the US, are both motivated by *class* differences more than any others, it becomes much easier to understand who supports either and who doesn't, on both issues.

In the UK, if you are upper middle class or wealthy, call it Professional Class, then you are greatly Benefited by the EU. You get to own second homes on the Riviera easily, your labor costs stay low because labor supply comes from anywhere, the costs of the goods you buy are always low because you always buy tarriff and duty free from the lowest cost provider. You make a LOT of money from being part of the EU. Besides, Administrators and Solicitors and Middle Managers never have to worry about immigrants coming in and taking their jobs.

BUT - if you are working class, then you are driven out of your job by immigrant competition, you can't even afford a first home, and all the industries that you could have worked in have gone elsewhere, and you live in crappy government housing on government assistance with crappy government healthcare, and there's not a ghost of a chance of you ever breaking out of it. Because the Professional and Ruling classes have got you locked in tight, with no way out.

Brexit is a way to break the headlock, and to give the working class a way to lift themselves back out of poverty, and so what if the Professional Class won't like it?

I'm very sorry to tell you that Rick was moved from the hospital last Sunday into hospice on Tuesday (11-19). My husband and I flew up on Thursday to be with him, and he passed away quietly with on Friday 11-22.

His legacy is the blurring of news and comedy.
MSM news now wants to be funny and entertaining; comedians all now want to be political pundits.

Life was much better when these two were much more distinct.

currently filming a tv mini-series on Phyllis Schlafly. A hit-job on
her, not a flattering depiction of her contributions to America.

A truly accomplished and brilliant woman. Such people can not be tolerated. She reminds me of Maggie Thatcher. Agree or disagree with their opinions, they were and are worthy of respect.

For some odd reason, female accomplishments are not respected in the socialist-o-sphere.

A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

268 So. For Mrs. Flounder's birthday, I got her car a remote start installation, because of the cold winters that we have here. I finally had it installed last week.


This weekend, she tells me it didn't work. I ask if she followed the instructions on the little keychain instruction placard that they gave us that lists a prescribed sequence of button presses. She said yes. I went and tried it out successfully on my own.


This morning, I took her out to show her how I had remote started it successfully and told her what to do. Started right up. She confessed that instead of pressing the lock button on the keyfob, which normally locks the doors, in the prescribed sequence, she actually pressed the little button icon on the instruction placard in the prescribed sequence.


Did I mention that she is blonde?

It's interesting that the Army's Delta Force was used to eliminate al-Baghdadi. For the last 10+ years, it's been the SEALs doing every special op that has been revealed to the public.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

"all mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one
man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a
better language; and every chapter must be so translated; God employs
several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by
sickness, some by war, some by justice; but God's hand is in every
translation, and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again
for that library where every book shall lie open to one another."

Hey, throw in the Virgin Islands, and it's a deal! (I've always wanted to get rid of the Blue-Eyed Sheikhs!)

331 Well see you soon Rickl. Save some ValueRite for us!

332 Damn. Just hearing about RickL.

He was a damn good moron. Sometimes you pray and the answer is 'no'.

I hope he rests in peace and is enjoying the next adventure.

335 Pamela Bach, eh? I note the freckles in photo 3. I believe I have previously mentioned that I like freckles... a lot.

New York and the Northest would love to secede. Quebec, Ontario and the Maritimes in exchange for Alberta?
It actually makes political and geographic sense.

337 Goodbye, rickl.

RIP rickl.

339 Rickl, I am so sorry. I hope you have peace and comfort. You were my "lighthouse" in our cancerverse.
Godspeed my friend that I never met.
I will pray for you, I will watch rockets and shooting stars and think of you. God bless you and your family.

344 Oh man, Rickl is one of the originals. Very sad news. RIP, man. Condolences to the family, and his family here at the HQ.

345 It's so sad when a member of the community passes. I lost my friend Thad two years ago - he introduced me to this site and we would chat almost every day about politics and "what was on ACE". RIP Rickl and Thad.

346 Farewell, sir; and Godspeed.
