The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Yesterday we heard that the FBI busted into Paul Manafort's house before dawn looking for documents. Why was that necessary? He was already cooperating with Mueller's investigation. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and the Pakistani IT guys all get kid glove treatment. Anybody else see a problem here?"

Now THIS is how you deal with sexual harassment:


Here's something: 25,000+ vintage 78rpm records, digitized.

Wait a minute, I thought progressives were all about SCIENCE. The date on this article is interesting. Something must have happened just recently to make science suddenly inconvenient for them. I wonder what that could be?

And then there's this from a few months back:

give up on facts.jpg

These are real articles, not PhotoShops.

Matthew Dowd is neck-and-neck with Sally Kohn in the 'Dumbest Man On The Internet' competition, but with this mind-bogglingly stupid tweet, he is threatening to take a commanding lead:



(h/t CBD for this dumb Dowd tweet, which dumbness level is a phenomenal 1325 millikohns). If you could, by some weird science, translate millikohns into Scoville units, Dowd would be in the Carolina Reaper range.

I'm pretty sure this is racist:

So Dowd is saying that first there are radical Muslims and second they are just as bad as fundamentalist radical Christians. That sounds very Islamaphobic to equate the peace loving Muzzies to Christians. Oh the horror!

It can be a useful position; if the adversary's foundation is built upon emotion only, then you need to confuse those emotions, set their thinking at odds with themselves; we humans feel two ways about basically everything in life, the trick is to find the avenue in.

...the problem is the Left is perpetually in a state of self-contradicting histrionics so making them even more unstable might have unforeseen consequences...

======================================


In what way? I mean, in what exact way? I would put myself near the line of fundamentalist radical Christian, although I am not as radical as some Christians I know.


For instance, I do not travel to unreached people groups around the world and minister to them, as some friends of mine have done. Even an aunt of mine was a missionary to Papua New Guinea. I do not sell all that I have and give to the poor, and keep only enough to subsist on, although I know people who have. I do not smuggle bibles into closed countries such as the Soviet Union once was, although I have a friend who did so, from the back of an oxcart.


So how am I, or any of my friends, a dangerous fright?

Unless somehow, USA, Russia, China, South Korea, and Japan ALL agree to attack and destroy south korea and share the cost of rebuilding and taking care of refugees etc, North Korea will just keep on chugging along albeit with more and more nukes at their disposable.

Then we just pray they don't sell one to ISIS etc.

139 Manafort raid was executed on July 26. We didn't hear anything about it until someone decided to leak it.

How do we know that other warrants haven't been executed for others? We don't. No one is going to leak that.

So I put doubt on the idea that 'only' Manafort was raided in this way. I also put doubt on any worries people have about 'flipping' Manafort. This says you believe Trump did something wrong. I do not believe Trump did anything wrong and has nothing to hide.

Manafort only worked for Trump for a couple of months. How much could he have on Trump to 'flip'? Do you really believe Trump was 'colluding' with Russia? I mean, come on. Don't fall for this stuff.

Best guess: Mueller wants to charge 'someone' with 'something.' Maybe on both sides of the aisle so that it all appears non-partisan. We know Mueller has some hinky finances, as does Flynn. I am assuming there may be minor charges filed for one or both of these guys. But that's it.

My guess is that there are other warrants out there that were served and kept silent. Russia was dying until NK situation popped up. This warrant news was to help distract. My guess is, Russia was dying b/c there is some not-so-good developments for the left on this issue that may include Fusion GPS, DNC, HRC or Obama and his crew.

Wonder why Rice suddenly had an op ed about NK in the NYT? Another distraction tactic. She wants the heat off of her and the rest of the Democrats...don't be fooled.

It's all about the stilletto-to-platform ratio multiplied by the baseline height, modified by the transparency, metallic, and aggressive design coefficients.

Ok, fine. But you need to pick a specific Kohn occurrence, and assign it a value (e.g. perhaps when she is unconscious, and neither inhaling nor exhaling, that is 1 millikohn). Then, Kohn occurrences can be measured against that. It would be good to have other reference points; perhaps an 'average' tweet could be in the range of 100 millikohns.

One whiff of potential Trump cooties, and mortal terror ensued. He did the pundit version of jumping-on-table-shrieking-"Eek a mouse". Not a rational reaction, but no surprise in that.

After all, he is a 14 year old mean girl.

274 Having known people who have been associated with the University of California at Santa Cruz as either students or faculty, I don't believe you can standardize them all at 1 millikohn. Some are less, some are more.

Right, but I was measuring the aggregate, and then dividing by the number of samples to get an average. So 1 millkohn is the level of dumbness of an average banana slug.

Also, I tried not to include too many samples from Uncle Charley's Summer Camp, because that skewed the results too low to be useful.

I suggest we kickstart development of a Kohnometer, as well.

285 Is it so hard to believe that Trump ran a clean campaign? The doubt is ridiculous here. Trump has been audited for years. He knew that the left would go after him like crazy. Do you really think he would do something hinky in his campaign? It is easy to run an honest campaign and follow the rules. Harder to do what Hillary did and try to keep it hidden.

If Trump is calm, then I am calm. I still go back to the fact that one day after Trump 'interviewed' Mueller to head the FBI, he was hired by Rosenstein for job of Special Counsel. Does no one else find that intriguing? I do.

Do you really think Mueller was being interviewed for the FBI job? I don't.

Trump also selected Rosenstein as acting AG before Sessions got the job. I mean, really, do you think he would put someone in that job if he didn't trust him?

That's the question, isn't it?

He could be referring to icky evangelicals (because they really give the Left the willies), or maybe Christian militia/doomsdayer types (Waco wackos, etc.), or he could be incorrectly identifying some recent domestic terrorists like Timothy McVeigh, since the MSM always incorrectly attributes at least some of their motives to a non-existent Christian faith.

Or worse, he could be using the tired, imlausible argument that it is the "climate of hate created by Christians" that motivates people like the muslim Pulse nightclub killer.

Blackwater founder Erik Prince, the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, has been promoting a plan in major media outlets to turn the war in Afghanistan over to private military contractors. But largely missing from the debate about Prince’s plan is that the former Blackwater CEO currently leads a military contractor that would profit from the proposal and enrich its shareholders — which include the Chinese government.

Serious (perhaps silly) question. If the USA were to establish a contract of sorts with a "private military organization", would the government have the ability to use such a group to enforce domestic policies that would normally run counter to the Posse Comitatus Act?

And then I think about it - our spoiled society has so much polished flotsam.

He is the flotsam of the political class, of the academics, of the chatterers, of a successful country where you can live in moneyed enclaves where no one has "real" problems like those faced in poorer nations, or even poorer counties.

I want to ask people like Dowd, "Who do you think you are, seriously?" "My good sir, you forget yourself! I ran many very big campaigns for famous people! I am very important!" Flotsam. Rhetoric is not a wealth-creating product. His life and experiences have not informed his opinions because he never did anything real. He's a recipient of overgenerous donors scared by politicians who betray them when it comes time to legislate. Which is to say he would starve if we weren't so fat with excess.

Flotsam isn't just the junkies and petty thieves. It's the parasites too, no matter how tony their zip code and how hot their takes.
