The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
Apologies for my last rant about the McCloskey couple wherein I completely screwed the pooch as to who they were. I was relying on some early reportage that they were big fans of BLM, but thanks to Tami and lymond the correction. According to the public record, which I should've checked in the first place, the McCloskeys have donated to a number of Republicans, including President Trump. The McCloskeys look more like moderate Republicans than limousine liberals.

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

So whatever happened to the Tea Party, anyway? I bring this up because of news that the NeverTrump Lincoln Project (no, I'm not linking to those sleazy grifters) spent over 89% of the money they raised on 'operating expenses', i.e. themselves. So, if I were one of their donors, I'd be asking some questions right now about what my money was buying.

The exposure of the Lincoln Project as merely a grifting operation reminded me of a piece that appeared in the Politico a few years ago, How We Killed the Tea Party:

What began as an organic, policy-driven grass-roots movement was drained of its vitality and resources by national political action committees that dunned the movement’s true believers endlessly for money to support its candidates and causes. The PACs used that money first to enrich themselves and their vendors and then deployed most of the rest to search for more “prospects.” In Tea Party world, that meant mostly older, technologically unsavvy people willing to divulge personal information through “petitions”—which only made them prey to further attempts to lighten their wallets for what they believed was a good cause. While the solicitations continue, the audience has greatly diminished because of a lack of policy results and changing political winds.

Read the whole thing. It goes into detail about the various 'tea party' grifting operations, all of which were legal according to FEC rules.

I would get tea party related e-mails with things like 'DONATE NOW TO REPEAL OBAMACARE' in the subject line, and I'd think, hmmm, don't they know that even if we did manage to get such a bill through congress, Obama would just veto it and we aren't even close to having enough votes to override? And you want my money for this pointless waste of time? So I'd toss the e-mails and eventually put the originators on my blocked senders list so they'd go directly to the spam folder. I never donated. I knew that if I did, the one thing I'd be sure to get was more solicitations to donate.

But the difference between between the Lincoln Project and the Tea Party, is that the latter started out as a grass-roots effort that was hijacked by grifters, while the Lincoln Project was pure grift from the get-go.

Rick Wilson tho. How about that guy?

Records demonstrate that as Trump was taking off as a political force, Wilson’s personal financial situation turned dour. The bank was moving in on his house, credit card companies were suing him over debt accrued, and the IRS filed various liens against him for almost $400,000 for back taxes in February 2014. As that happened, Wilson’s political style changed to become anti-Trump instead of continuing with his decades-long history of inflammatory right-wing politics.

So it looks like Wilson has a huge financial incentive to keep the grift going, namely, to stay out of the hoosegow. I honestly don't recall any of his "history of inflammatory right-wing politics", before he lost his mind, but even so, I guess naming his grifting scam 'The Lincoln Project' makes it sound a lot more noble than the 'Give Rick Wilson Your Money SuperPAC'.

And with the President's approval rating among Republicans currently at 91%, I'd like to know who on our side is actually donating to the LP. Because if I wanted to send money to an anti-Trump organization that shills for the Democrats, I'd choose Media Matters. Or, looking at that graphic below, even that American Bridge 21st Century outfit, which is a Media Matters offshoot. Not only would they do a better job promoting progressive candidates and causes, also, only half of my money would be disappearing up David Brock's nose.

Oh, and one more thing. Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver is a registered foreign agent acting on behalf of Russia. Which is ironic because, you know, they've been pounding the 'TRUMP TRUMP RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA BAD BAD! drum pretty hard.

That right there is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard. The Uberkommando der Woke can produce nothing like it. There is no beauty in them, no subtlety, no grace, no artistry, no soul. They are are cultural and artistic vampires, sustaining themselves by sucking the creative and artistic life from the works of people greater than themselves.

Fuck them sideways with a railroad spike. They are to be disregarded at all points, given no consideration as neighbors, distrusted in all dealings and assumed to be cancer in all cases, for that is what they are.

71 Also re: Tea Party -- you also have to recognize that the RINO scumbags in Congress, such as John McCain were working with the Dems to harass Tea Party groups via the IRS, etc.

IIRC, it was a John McCain aid who sheered on this activity, advising they should destroy them by making then go bankrupt from legal fees fighting the IRS.

It is not surprising that once these GOP snakes helped destroy legitimate TP orgs they would swoop in and set themselves up as their (fake) replacements.

Consider that most classical music radio stations are part of that fine NPR that all of us have to pony up for in our taxes. And there's nobody on the planet further left than those grifters at NPR.

So now to keep up with their BLM overlords, will NPR get rid of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart et al and start featuring hip hop instead?

162 "That way the musician was only judged by how they played, not be how they looked."

You are correct. Those things are called auditions. You are not allowed to even speak, because if you spoke, you could tell if male or female, or other traits.
I myself have served as an adjudicator for those. I was only allowed to speak two phrases "Please play the piece on the music stand when ready" and "Thank you".

Tebow was five years too soon for the NFL. Today - they would use a QB / FB hybrid.

Which was odd - because Tebow WAS a reflection of Elway - another running QB in his day. No doubt - Elway had a hard on for Tebow. I wonder if it was Tebow's evangelicalism.

Just for fun, I looked at the poverty levels of France vs. the US. The former is 14% and the latter is 11% Perhaps poverty overall is static and many of those who live under the poverty line are not unhappy to be there; it's a lifestyle choice that is financed by the government and charity groups.

Big mistake, but they're going to make it. The MLB's minor league system is the envy of professional sports. Having a bidirectional pipeline where you cultivate talent or try to repair it with an entire additional league is awesome. Plus, the games are frequent and cheap and allow smaller cities and markets to have professional sports.

227 157 122 I enjoyed the one season Tebow played for the Broncos because he had such a positive effect on the team. His fellow players were clearly enjoying themselves, and loved it when they could pull off one of those last minute wins that Tebow did so well. He's a good dude.

Why the Bronco cut Tebow, and why no other NFL team wanted him, even as a backup, I don't understand.

It's that toxic Christianity, don't you know. That and that he was allowed to live, rather than his mother aborting him. The leftists and abortion supporters cannot forgive him drawing breathe, so they did everything they could to stop him from having a media presence.

To his credit, he went to the minors in baseball and drew news fans to games because of his genuine kindness. I hope God blesses him and his new wife tremendously, because he stood and stands for what is right when everyone wanted and wants to shut him up.

247 >>Last I heard, he was doing okay and had advanced to Double A. But, I think that was last year. This year, well, probably doesn't really count

As much as I've been rooting for him I think Tebow has peaked with his baseball career in the minors. He's a good, not great player but a fantastic person.

He has been drawing significant crowds to minor league parks based on his character not necessarily his playing ability. He goes out of his way to make everyone around him, particularly those with special needs, feel important. There are lots of videos floating around documenting his kindness before and after games.

He's the kind of guy you want to root for but I don't think a significant MLB career is in his future.

Lots of strength and he hits way better than I would but he's riding raw athletic ability, not talent and real skill.

276 I posted this late last night, but will do again here.

Yesterday, a Federal Judge dismissed a lawsuit Emagine theater (part of the chain) in Royal Oak Michigan filed against Whitmer's orders that movie theaters have to stay closed.

The theater had wanted to open for a day to celebrate Juneteeth and show the requisite films. When they began advertising in defiance of Whitmer's orders, she sent her legal dragon, the AG on them, who sent a letter threatening legal action . The theater dropped they idea and filed a suit instead.

This judge had previously ordered an injunction against the state gov. on behalf of a gym owner, allowing him to open. Then the sixth Circuit overturned his order, demanding the gym owner stay closed.

So with that experience under his belt, he dismissed this lawsuit and stated the following.

"The Supreme Court(Michigan?) and Sixth Circuit court have made it clear that the Individual rights in the Constitution are not absolute. They can be malleable during an emergency, therefore I am dismissing this suit as the State is not violating the 1st amendment as was alleged by the plaintiffs."

Make sure you read again that the courts have determined that the Constitution can be suspended when a gov official says they can.

Big mistake, but they're going to make it. The MLB's minor league system is the envy of professional sports. Having a bidirectional pipeline where you cultivate talent or try to repair it with an entire additional league is awesome. Plus, the games are frequent and cheap and allow smaller cities and markets to have professional sports.

Before the minors were dramatically transformed, they operated independently of the majors.

Players had to be "bought" by the major league team, and the minor league team that held the contract didn't have to sell.

Branch Rickey was instrumental in transforming the system, and it worked fairly well for a while, with it being something of a hybrid. Teams still held the contracts, and players were still not part of the whole organization, but the minor league teams now had a direct connection to specific major league teams.

So the Dodgers and Yankees and some others dominated because they had the best organized systems... and the most money, of course.

Over time it fairly well evened out, and I think MLB even made some of these franchises divest in their massive minor league systems, to become more equitable.

I don't know what will work best now, but yeah, having minor league teams being almost entirely just pipelines for the big club, that's not really ideal. Not even close, because the minor league teams then, aren't really teams at all.

350 So I duck into a dollar store I was going by to see if they had any Lysol. I have five cans, and it's no hoarding mentality. I just wanted one because I used one. They didn't have any, and I picked up a couple odds and ends. The young apprentice Karen at the register informed me that effective Monday, I must wear a mask. To which I said "No can do, have a breathing problem with them" and she said they have to refuse service. I told her attorney Dagget of Yell county would be in touch to discuss the ADA. She didn't get it.

She's got a huge fanboi, almost cult-like following among the libertarian/anarchist crowd.

I've never read her stuff. She's one of those people who seems to have lived a quite interesting life, and much of that comes through in her work, including the.. yes, joylessness.

If feminists had any sort of consistency, she would be held up as a strong woman with much integrity.

Or is that an uncomfortable subject?

Yep, I did a while back.

NBA: 74% Black ; 23% White
NFL: 70% Black
MLB: 42.5% "people of color"

Every major professional sport except for the NHL has Blacks over-represented.

That's why they had to keep moving the goalposts regarding their "oppression".

First they complained that there were not enough Black QBs. Then that increased and they moved to 'not enough Black head coaches' (and thus the affirmative action 'Rooney Rule'). The latest complaint I think is not enough Black team owners.

I don't know why DeSantis' Secretary of State has refused to address this.

429 Also re: Tea Party -- you also have to recognize that the RINO scumbags
in Congress, such as John McCain were working with the Dems to harass
Tea Party groups via the IRS, etc.



IIRC, it was a John McCain aid who sheered on this activity,
advising they should destroy them by making then go bankrupt from legal
fees fighting the IRS.



It is not surprising that once these GOP snakes helped destroy
legitimate TP orgs they would swoop in and set themselves up as their
(fake) replacements.


McCain was a snake and whatever he did in uniform was sullied and disgraced by his subsequent behavior as a "maverick" because everyone but he realized that he was nothing but a tool for the Democrats and their media propagandists. So add "willing fool" to the list.

And the final national polls in 2016 were pretty accurate, but they didn't predict who would win the election.

When people argue the accuracy of polls they ALWAYS point out the final poll results and try to imply that we should treat polls four months out with the same respect. But it's documented that they're performed differently.

So, sure the final polls in 2016 and 2018 were reasonably accurate, but the final polls in 2016 didn't even predict who would win despite being relatively accurate.

He told me that what he expects, as do many board members, that they will reopen the schools under pressure from parents, trying to maintain distance - and that (this is THEIR opinion, to be sure) that about September or October there will be a big new outbreak in the schools, and everything will shut down all over again, and that everything will become an even bigger shit show than it was in the spring.

To be clear, I'm not saying that I believe this - but the people running the State, and all of the Cities, and all of the Counties right now DO believe this.

478 Tim Tebow had more heart just himself than most NFL teams have in their entire rosters.

He carried his Gator teams on his back, spiritually, metaphorically and physically. He also had a much better arm and accuracy rate than people give him credit for.

And that season he had with the Broncos where they went to the playoffs and beat the Steelers only to lose to the Patriots he carried that team even more than the Gator team he won a National Championship with, which would seem impossible, but he did it. He WILLED them to win a bunch of games that season.

Tebow's skills have been talked down so much in the media exactly because he is a Christian and not because he wasn't a good QB.
