The Morning Report 10/11/17

shocked.jpg

Good morning kids. Halfway to the weekend and the scandal of major Democrat-Leftist Donor Harvey Weinstein's sexual abuse and cover up by the Media-Entertainment Complex continues to explode. Now, actual accusations of rape have surfaced as well as the completely unsurprising revelation that NBC quashed the story, despite one of their own, Ronan Farrow being threatened with retribution for pursuing it. Meanwhile the chief defenders of women the Faith Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have finally surfaced with completely anodyne/boilerplate and utterly disingenuous denunciations of a man who as recently as the last election was a valued bagman for the Organization. All of them sicken me, for myriad reasons.

Meanwhile, Roger Goodell has seemingly waved the white flag and more or less halfheartedly ordered the players to stand while the national anthem is played. Too little too late. The NFL will be dead and gone within a decade if not sooner. At least as we know it today. Meh. They allowed themselves to be seduced and then enslaved by the Left so it's their own damned fault.

In other news, the President is about to issue an executive order that lets Obamacare sufferers relieve their pain by going around the law to join group plans and associations. The Democrats of course are hell bent to stop this and sadly so is the GOP. He is not letting this go, and thank G-d for that. And neither will he let go on tax reform either or any of the rest of the agenda. As Steve Bannon has said, we are at war with an establishment that has hijacked the nation and refuses to give up. Whatever it takes, baby. Whatever it takes. War.

And SCOTUS has struck down the illegal stay on PDT's legal travel ban. Good. I say he should double down and expand the ban right now since the Court has spoken. Lastly, the great Daniel Greenfield is definitely cribbing my notes (yeah, sure). He is calling for a criminal prosecution of George Soros, the Ford Foundation and other sources of money that funds the American Counterrevolution. Perhaps AG Snoozy McSnoozerson will awaken from his snoozing. Doubtful, right?

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

The mask is off. The Left cares only about itself, power and wielding it over you. There's no appeasing it, no point of compromise, no modus vivandi. They will never be satisfied with anything less than your total subjugation. So why do corporations and the NFL inject themselves with this plague virus?

37 I want to hear from you smaht people on a suspicion that I have too....Bannon's departure from the WH is a head fake.

Because Trump is surrounded by GOPe/Deep State minions, Bannon was not effective in killing off the GOPe. Trump as the penultimate insider is making the GOPe look like the democrat boot lickers and backstabbers that they really are and Bannon is working as an outsider to overthrow the GOPe . Its a classic pincer operation.

It will depend on whether Harvey can be convinced to go quietly or whether he decides to pull down as many proud towers with him as he can. There has to be things going on we haven't heard because the piling on has been tremendous and leaving the cornered rat a way out is crucial if you want this to begin and end with Harvey.

Isn't it amazing what the election of PDT has done? He basically has kicked over a rotten ant hill/dung heap or all the world to see.

At a minimum, between the NFL, the lying propagandists in the MFM and the open insubordination/insurrection of DC, what has gone on before will not go on as before.

If we only had a party behind him to parlay this into a real COUNTER counterrevolution. For now, the PDT era is shaping up to be the most significant presidency since Reagan's.

59 Check out the Daily Mail. The Left is going to eat itself (I know, phrasing) over Pervy Weinstein.

First, Lindsey Lohan is defending him. Insert rolleyes smiley here.

Rose McGowan calls out Ben Affleck for his "I didn't know" statement. Now some chick is saying that Affleck groped her in 2003.

Terry Crews saying he got groped last year. Whoever did that figured he was powerful enough that they could just go and grab Crews's junk and not get his ass beat or his name named. He was right. Crews makes a point on Twitter - if he, a 240 lb black man is too afraid to do anything, then he can't really say anything about the women.

Corey Feldman still won't name names, but he seems to be coming closer to doing so. He says well if someone else files a suit, I will back them up.

The media are still covering for Hillary - they keep reporting that she "condemned" Pervy.

As Instapundit is fond of saying, we have the worse elite class ever (or something like that). That they are imploding now is a good thing, I think.

Trump. Still not tired of winning.

Harvey Weinstein was brought down by his own hubris. As influential and successful as he was as a producer, he fancied himself as big and powerful as a major studio. He wasn't, and it was his profligacy and a string of box office flops that made him a liability,

70 The 9th circus is at it again. They have ruled that local government can restrict the location of gun stores. Now that would be fine except this has been a favorite tactic of gun grabbers for a long time. They write location restrictions that can not be met anywhere in their jurisdiction which what they did here. The stupid black robe said this:

The ruling by the court's 11-judge panel upheld a California county's ordinance banning new gun stores within 500 feet of schools, day-care centers, residential areas, liquor stores and other gun shops.


A majority of the panel said the law did not violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms of would-be gun owners because there were other stores in the county where they could buy a gun.




OK, so those other gun shops are not allowed to have competition? Also, I used to live next to San Leandro and those judges are FOS or liars or both.

Crews makes a point on Twitter - if he, a 240 lb black man is too afraid to do anything, then he can't really say anything about the women.

That's really something else. In any other context, Crews could and should have stomped the shit out of that guy.

93 Trump is going to kill the Iran deal the right way. He is going to "decertify" Iranian compliance.

That is NOT repealing the deal.

After decertification, the Congress has 60 days to reimpose sanctions. Or not. People will say well we already gave them a zillion dollars, and we can't get that back. True. If we had a political class worth anything they would more or less immediately pass a bill reimposing the sanctions regime unless the Iranians take action to get into compliance by a date certain.

Narrator: Our political class isn't worth anything.

That would make the Iranians choose whether to stop being assholes and abide by the rules in order to keep the deal instead of putting the onus on the US to ignore the Iranians being assholes to keep the deal. If the deal is that good, then the Iranians should be striving to stay within its parameters.

Narrator: The deal is not that good.

and teaching our boys decency and respect -- so we can make such
behavior less prevalent in the future."


So we have this monster Weinstein, who was sexually harassing and assaulting numerous women for decades, and they think it's important to say we need to teach boys not to rape? Did anyone feel the need to say we need to teach boys to only shoot at non-living targets after the LV shooting? Boys/men are not Weinsten like rapists by default; they don't need to be taught not to be monsters. Ugh.

It's sexual harassment as power differential which the Dems decided was no longer a thing because every woman should grab her Presidential kneepads for Bill Clinton.


As far as Corey Feldman not naming names, he has said in the past that's because it's past the criminal statute of limitations in California and if he did, the only one in legal trouble would be him. He's right about that and, frankly, I don't blame him for making the clear eyed determination that he won't have the life he fought to rebuild destroyed. There's no bright and shiny perfect ending for him.

Not sure if the alleged groping incident is that or not. There is that reporter who says she was writing an article about Pervy in 2004 I think and Affleck and Damon both called her to dissuade her from writing it. People (McGowan?) have said that makes them complicit. For Damon's part, he said he didn't know the article was even about Pervy.

But I think this will get worse for Hollywood before it gets better. That his wife has left him changes things - the people who say they are supporting her now are anti-Pervy. Before the split, they could be supporting her by being silent on Weinstein.

I'm sure my clumsy formulations are mangling this, but that's how I see it. Sometimes our victory is just to be a better person regardless.

They will never be satisfied with anything less than your total subjugation. So why do corporations and the NFL inject themselves with this plague virus?

152 The Obamas' statement was stronger than Hillary's, but only a little. The press is saying Hillary and the Obamas "condemned" Pervy but they didn't. The construction is largely the same - we were disgusted by the reports (not by what he did, the reports mind you, like Hillary was shocked by the revelations). Unlike Hillary saying that others needed to not tolerate it, and others should support the victims, they at least said "we." The "we need to teach boys not to" construction is pretty much standard fare for the Left. I have a Lefty friend that got all up in arms about an event at the university his daughter attended. A girl got all drunk at a party and took off her shirt and ran around in her bra. Someone videod it and put it on Youtube. This was a BIG DEAL that her privacy was violated and it was tantamount to rape. To suggest that maybe an underage girl maybe shouldn't be getting drunk and taking off her clothes at a college party was badthink and could not be spoken. You were a supporter of rape if you were to suggest that she wouldn't have ended up on Youtube in her bra if she hadn't gotten drunk.

The ONLY goodthink was that boys need to be taught better. The girls, no, teaching them to act better is tantamount to rape.

As for Bannon vis a vis elections and going forward, he was actually saying that winning the elections is not enough, even when you elect the most conservative people. He was praising one senator in particular for his voting record in congress but he said it's not enough; you have to be pushing the movement and long term agenda forward day in and day out.

Bannon is 100% right.

187 Reading the various nasty stories about Weinstein yesterday, the person who came out looking the best was . . . . Brad Pitt.

Never thought I would find anything good to say about him, but at least he acted like a man, which is more than I can say about the others who knew this was going on.

Also, I feel for Rose McGowan. For 20 years she has watched Weinstein basking in Hollywood's adoration, knowing what he did to her, and knowing that she'd been legally muzzled by the NDA. It was probably eating her up, and likely contributed to causing her cancer. But now, finally, she has some justice. Weinstein has been publicly humiliated, lost his job, his marriage, and the thing he cared most about -- his power. Judging by her tweets, McGowan is still very angry about all the people who betrayed her, but I sincerely hope she can let go of some of that anger now and find some peace, for her own sake.

The difference: I would be very surprised if that man was a Harvey Weinstein type. The people at the party repeatedly emphasized his kindness, good humor and concern for others. That's what i know about him anyway. They also mentioned his humility and faith-neither of which could be used to describe HW

Fen, Weinstein got off on shocking his prey. If you read the Ronan Farrow story you see a pattern of luring women into his hotel room through various means - an appointment moved from the office or restaurant at the last minute, a meeting where he says he wants to show a script but he left it in his room. When the woman arrives, or after he goes into the bathroom whilst discussing business, he reappears in a rob with his penis popped out, or plain naked, or he beckons them to the bathroom where he's naked in the tub, etc.
This was an element of his attacks, an exhibitionism and forcing women to deal with a naked, erect man right in front of them with possibly no escape.

225 Even though I'm enjoying watching Hollywood implode, it's depressing to think those blessed with creative talent are frequently pretty shitty human beings. I thought the reverse when I was young. I assumed that people who could imagine the emotions and motivations of others, whether writers or artists or actors, had to be sensitive and kind. Then I started reading writers' bios and soon stopped because so many of them were petty, nasty shits and cheerleaders for leftist dictators. How many admired Stalin and Mao and Castro.

It's just weird to me that these people can get together and create movies of great beauty (along with a lot of shit) and then treat others like crap on a daily basis.

The other person who looks good is Emma Thompson. Weinstein dropped by the set of her movie, sidled up to young Hayley Atwell and (sounds like) started grooming her by doing his compliment/insult thing by telling her she needs to lose weight because he saw the dailies and she "looks like a fat pig." Atwell told Thompson, who then confronted Weinstein, told him to stay away from Atwell, and Weinstein left her alone for the rest of the movie.

Speaking alongside co-host Emma Stone, Seth MacFarlane was reading out the names of the five women nominated for best supporting actress in 2013.

'Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein,'

joked MacFarlane. The five actresses nominated that year were Sally Field (Lincoln), Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Helen Hunt (The Sessions) and Amy Adams (The Master). Apart from Field, all of the nominees have previously worked on films with Harvey.

Of course, I know that good and decent people can be lacking in the looks department, Fen, and those people who can't help what they look like would never draw criticism from me. I was simply doing an overlay of his unappealing appearance corresponding to his depravity. It somehow seems amplified with a degenerate such as Weinstein.

I remember a MTM episode where Mary comes home and finds her apartment has been burglarized and her stuff missing. She imagines that the thief has their hairy arms all over her belongings. Having never seen him, the cop asks why she described the thief with hairy arms. She says, "I just knowww." Sorta the same thing. Attributing icky stuff to bad people.

A very fair question. I'll take a stab at it. Who was it, Milton Friedman, who said that the trick to change wasn't to put the right people into office, but to convince the wrong people to do the right thing. Something like that.

The big holdup in any kind of serious change has been the Senate, regardless of who holds the preezyship. They are the turd speedbump in the punchbowl. And with practically lifetime sinecures once they get into place, they have no incentives to get with the program.

Bannon wants to support challengers to every single R Senate seat in 2018, except for Cruz. Good good good, I say. Make every last one of em sweat. No longer can they lie about their 'mission', then forget all about it two weeks after the vote totals roll in, until about 5 years later when they start making lying mouth movements once again. See John McShame as a perfect example.

They are all the wrong people. Maybe they just haven't had the right incentive yet. And that is job retention.

Lena Dunham has had Judd Aptow producing all her stuff, so she's never needed to get favors from Weinstein. As a narcissist, I'm sure it's killing her she doesn't have a Harvey encounter of her own to share with the world.

I hadn't seen that story. But it's good to know that at least a few people in Hollywood have some sense of decency.

Brad Pitt sort of surprised me. He's always seemed pretty vain to me, and I didn't really expect much of him, so it was interesting to read that he had gone and confronted Weinstein in person about his behavior towards Paltrow.

Contrast his behavior with the behavior of Affleck and Damon, after Rose McGowan told them what Weinstein had done to her. Those two suck-ups just kept sucking harder.

Some Hebraic names have a real heroic sound to them. I wouldn't mind being Wilhelm Frankl, Leon Uris, Mauri Rose. "Harvey Weinstein," billion bucks or not, sounds like a pudgy kid from Queens who made his chops doing rock concerts in Buffalo.

To push the Casablanca similes, he looks like Signor Ferrari with the ethics of Prefect Renault, and the charm of Major Strasser. And guess who found the Letters of Transit. This doesn't look like the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Don't play this one again, Dooley.

Thanks for the link to the Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast, J.J. I was a little confused by the article though. The writer seemed to be saying that the worship was all about Jesus but the speakers were not. The theme, "And Still I Rise", certainly sounds like a Biblical one, but I guess it could be used in a different way as well.

Wasn't there a story about Marilyn Monroe saying to Einstein that wouldn't it be great if they had a child together because the kid would have Monroe's looks and Einstein's brain, and Einstein said, what if it's the other way around and the kid has my looks and your brains?

I've heard different versions of that story with G.B. Shaw and Churchill instead of Einstein, so I doubt it actually happened. But the point stands - until the figure out how to jigger the genes just so, you don't know what you are going to get.

I knew a girl in hs who was remarkably pretty and her parents and brother were quite plain (and no, she wasn't adopted.) I've also seen the reverse, good looking couples with kids who are not all that good looking.

Posted by: Colin at October 11, 2017 08:36 AM (2HBWj)

321 Alex- read the Rush transcript link JJ provided. Bannon is definitely NOT saying this. In fact, just the opposite.

BANNON: To take your country back, it's not gonna happen in just any one election. This is something you're gonna have to grind out day in and day out for the next five, 10, 15, 20 years. It took us a long time to get here. There's no magic wand we can wave and drain the swamp. There's no magic wand we can wave and blow up this establishment. I hate to tell people, you're gonna have to work."
Posted by: Barack Obama is a bad, bad man at October 11, 2017 07:42 AM (Fy1TT)



Not only did I read the transcript, that is the exact portion to which I was responding.

I have heard variants of that speech for decades on decades on decades now. History did not begin in 2008.

It was, what, 1974 when the changes were made to the budget and appropriations process under which, pinky swear, actual budgets were supposed to be passed.

The 1986 immigration reform made all kinds of promises about enforcement and building the dang wall.

The Congressional Review Act was passed in 1996 because we are going to clamp down hard on the administrative state.

I can go on.

If you want to go to more recent times, how many times have we had knife fights here about one half of one third, well, we don't have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate and, c'mon, be realistic, we can't do anything without the Presidency too.

Nothing, not a single syllable that came out of Bannon's mouth, is different in any way from the smug if you don't like who is running then you need to take over the county and state level Republican leadership mantra that has been spouted for decades.

I. Don't. Believe. Him. Why should I? Why should anyone? Bannon is only at the very earliest stages of proving that he is capable of providing that which he states he is.

Remember, the context of that quote was Hannity asking why should you be believed after what was said from 2010 on. Bannon's response is just more of the same.

My whole point is that asking me for yet more patience and faith that this time, this time that thing won't be done in my mouth is ludicrous. We are in the position we are in now because that faith and trust has been proven misplaced in the past. I'm not about to blindly give it to someone else now.

I appreciate what you're getting at, Fen, but if you read what he did this was not about attraction or seduction at all. This was about power, about humiliating and dominating his prey. Why should he take the time to spruce up and seduce a woman when he can just grab her head and force her to fellate him in the middle of a business meeting at the office? These women were not worthy of his best self, they were disposable toys, not dates. He got off of debasing them.

345 Isn't it amazing that the Senate GOPe, when confronted with the news that Bannon is seeking to primary all of them, their first instinct is not, "maybe we ought to do our damned jobs and fulfill our promises?"

Nope. It's all "that damned Bannon!"

I mean seriously, can anyone anywhere name one damned campaign promise from the last 10 years that they've even come close to delivering on in the last year?

Every media person ought to be asking the GOPe: "What campaign promise are you going to deliver on by the end of 2017?"

Trump really has them pegged to a "T."
They're so used to chasing short-term "headline" victories--while giving into the Dems long-term plans--that they have no idea Trump is doing the exact same thing to them.

All of them think that stopping Trump is "winning."

But, Trump was elected on issues that have 60%+ support.

And the idiots are fighting each other to be first up the gallows steps to put their head in the noose by opposing the people on those issues.

I keep saying, Trump changed the rules. Name recognition, money and endorsements don't matter to the voters any more--results do.

Six special elections since Trump. Six times the monoparty has rolled out their tried-and-true trifecta of money, name recognition and endorsements.

And six times they have lost. Bigly.

While the winners have specifically ran against the monoparty. Against their cycle of "promises--get elected--fail to deliver--more promises."

But the GOPe is lining up their old formula once again . . . .

I think it's more a case of conservative women wanting men with a sense of honor. I'm old enough to remember when there were liberal girls with conservative values; but they seem extinct.

Women don't seem to understand the power they have, and have bought the feminist line completely. In fact, they can have the men they want, if they only draw the lines as they used to. But that would mean starting with rejecting the feminists, and they're afraid to.

That doesn't mean they must reach perfection before I allow them into my life. It doesn't mean that, in spite of their flaws, they cannot bring me great delight. Choose joy, and don't let the evil one rob you of it. That's just a notch on his belt. I won't cede that.

Every time the MFM repeated "it's a stunt" many in the middle scratched their heads and said "wait, why is it a stunt and not a counter-statement to the America bashers?"

We won't replace all immediately, but they are at least put on notice that failure theater is not acceptable. It's not a matter of believing Bannon, it's just a strategy that makes sense. The proof is in the pudding/choices ... well vetted activists.

I knew a girl who shared birthdays with Margaret Thatcher and Marie Osmond, and who actually looked like Marie and thought like Maggie. Impressive.

BTW - I too hated the steroid HR fest. But there is a distinction to be made. Baseball has always had two types of rules, those which are taken very seriously (gambling being exhibit A here) and those which weren't. The latter is evinced by the spitball; they've always taken a "good on you if you get away with it" attitude. When they started using steriods, AT THE TIME, it wasn't quite clear where that fell. Now, that applies to McGuire, and maybe a few others. But by the time Bonds and ARod got caught, that was no longer true.

What makes you think we'd be unexceptional? I played soccer in high school and for years after. Played against players who played both football and soccer, because they enjoyed the game that much. But when it came time to go off to college, the money was in football. So they went in that direction. Two players I played against went on to decades long careers in NFL football.

Matt and Chris Bahr.

Soccer is a great game to actually play. As a spectator sport, maybe not so much. I think the USA could field a world class team, if the *big* money in professional football would dry up.

Yet these pukes think they have some right to take control of that very expensive air time to make their own anti-America political statement. Nuts.

Hollywood manages to sell such hate, and inserts their dogma ... but it requires a lot of special effects, and sex, and other baser motivations.

420 I liked this from Rush:

This NFL stuff is part of why we spend so much time on it. The NFL
story's a microcosm of all of the things that are out of whack and need
to be recalibrated. We're talking about the value and moral structure of
the country, the foundational guardrails that define the distinct
American culture. Those things have been under assault for decades.


What is happening in the NFL, the way Trump is fighting back on it
and not letting it go, is an example of how all these things are going
to have to be dealt with if there is to be change, because the people
who have, from our perspective, screwed all of this up are not gonna one
day realize that they've screwed up and go away.

That's why I keep telling every audience I speak to they're going to
have to be defeated. And that requires a daily engagement in battle,
which is what Bannon's talking about when he says Barrasso, it's not
enough that he votes. That's good, but is he on the battlefield?
This,
frankly, is a problem in the conservative movement, folks.



That's a paradigm shift right there. Getting elected is not enough, votes are not enough. I'm glad to have Bannon pushing harder. He wants to fight, knows we *have* to fight.

No reason.

But, getting rid of some deadwood like McCain, McConnell, et al. can't be any worse than now.

And we know for sure that keeping them will make things worse.

The other is, Trump is following through. (Much slower than we'd like, to be sure.) And, if Bannon is working for Trump, then . . . .

Or that is how I see it. and counter-revolution is cool ... counter-counter is too awkward. Paul Joseph Watson has made that argument a few times. Or he says "counter-culture" ... same thinking. imo

446 I was surprised at how easily my husband has let go of Sunday football. The Bears sucking probably helps.

This right here? A bit of delicious irony, viewed in the context of SJW "nudging". Football in general has been sucking, because the mandarins refuse to acknowledge what makes for a good show, and that rot goes all the way down. Their mission is no longer to put on a good show or even to focus on good player selection and team strategy, but to be "leaders" and make you, the viewer, Think Correctly, as well as the men on the field. However...

The same practices that they engage in to try to make sure you make the "right choices" elsewhere tend to make the thing suck in general, which means that when choices they don't expect come up (i.e. should I keep watching football), they have "nudged" the fanbase into making a choice they didn't want. Their pestering has raised the "cost" of making some decisions that weren't even questioned before, much as they were trying to raise the "cost" of Doing The Wrong Thing.

447 I think soccer might catch on big in the U.S.

Just needs a couple of tweaks. Like let the players actually carry the ball, or throw it from one guy to another.

Oh, and let the defenders grab the guy with the ball and throw him to the ground. And make a score if you run with the ball past the end line. And not just one point, make it six points.

Okay, for those who like kicking we could let some guy kick the ball for an additional point.

And get some big heavy guys to form a line of defense to push back some big heavy guys on the other team.

And helmets.

And shoulder pads.


Then it might catch on.

Just appreciate what Trump did. For decades, the Dems have set it up so the discussion is: If you want a wall, then you have to give us all this stuff first.

The GOP were fine with this because it worked as failure theater - "See, we're getting you the wall you want, but we have to give something in return!"

With Trump's new plan, the discussion is:If you want DACA, you have to give me the wall and all my stuff first.

That is yuuuuge. I'm not going to fret about what he might give away yet, because he just pantsed Schumer and Pelosi who were so dang smug about tricking Trump into giving up the wall.

"That's a paradigm shift right there. Getting elected is not enough, votes are not enough. I'm glad to have Bannon pushing harder. He wants to fight, knows we *have* to fight."

I'm reminded of the story about how quite a few congressmen and other political big wigs of the day approached Lincoln with a long list of US Grant's personal failings, slovenly look, and any number of reasons why they were absolutely certain that he was completely unfit to lead the Federal Armies.

Lincoln simply said "He fights."

Lincoln had had more than his fill of mannerly gentlemen with perfectly tailored suits who could spit out books full of theoretical tactics, and be wonderfully entertaining at dinner parties - and who would then give up and retreat as soon as the first shot was fired.

"He fights." When you're in a real war, that counts more than anything else.

There's more than one way besides a chunk of cheese on e side.

My favorite is the cheese, shredded, baked into the pie crust. Tangy salty cheese crust with sweet apples.

527 493 Steve Bannon could be channeling Oliver Cromwell: "I'd rather have a plain russet-coated captain that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that which you call a gentleman and is nothing else..."

Cromwell was one of the first to insist that his officers be chosen by proven military ability, and not selected by birth status alone. Had quite a bit to do with why he won that war.
Posted by: Tom Servo at October 11, 2017 09:21 AM (V2Yro)

It's amazing that the British were able to be the dominant military power in the world for centuries with an officer corps that was selected largely by family connections, or just buying a commission.

532 The problem with Determinism is that it's like watching tapes of NFL games in the 70's. Some will be entertaining, some will be boring as hell, and since you already know what's going to happen, what's the point? Why bother?

If you were really a being with Supreme Power (or a sentient universe, or whatever you want to propose) wouldn't it be a lot more interesting to try something new, where you weren't absolutely sure how things would play out?

And this isn't just moral theory - in mathematical models of truly chaotic systems (such as weather and most natural processes) it's looking more and more like the only way to accurately determine the outcome of a certain set of inputs is to set up a full scale model (the size of the world) and let things play out, in real time.

Now of course if you could step out of time and travel forwards and back, then you could always find out what was going to happen without causing it to happen. Kind of like being able to sneak a peak at the last chapter of a book before you read it all. You'd know, but you'd miss a lot of the good parts if you didn't go back and pay attention to the details.

547 I'm not well versed in the whole determinism thing .. but way back in my Bible days we used to point out fore-knowledge (God's future promises, and knowing us in advance, for instance) is not the same as pre-determined.

Einstein maybe put a new twist on this ability to see all time ... relativity. As we approach the speed of light, time "slows down". Pre big bang even some scientists say ... was the time before time began (even laws of physics "determined" at that point). But God IS light (a verse) ... so at the speed of light, no time, or all time seen at once?

Anyway, one might have a kid that you can perceive will make a wrong choice, you can "foresee" it even, but you let him do his thing anyway.

With all the bad choices made out there, why would some God (or any power) determine such chaos and pain by his choice? Why not have all the children of the world hold hands in Utopia instead?

"the problem of evil" is "if God is all good, why does he allow evil to exist?
The answer is always rooted in free will. The parent/child thing is maybe the best insight to that.

548 Don't know if there is easy to access equivalent on the schismatic side. Very few of the movies produced today get a pass.

CS Lewis wrote well about that in The Problem of Pain. There is no freedom in Utopia and hence no love. Everyone becomes a robot, because as it is now one happiness for a person might make another unhappy, so everyone would have to be the same and all choice would be eliminated. You can't love without giving of yourself, and that's a sacrifice which could potentially make you unhappy.

Parents get this in a very imperfect way.

552 It should be rammed up the collective ass of the media that "dictator" Trump waited out the ban by the lower court until it was overturned. He could have ignored it, but didn't.

He temporarily left the American people with less protection at the behest of the court until the SC spoke.

He's a lousy excuse of a dictator.

553 DACA Demands: Opening of negotiations.

In the meeting with Pelosi and Shumer he confirmed his and their interest and willingness to do a deal. Now he is establishing his opening position. Start high to end high.

If he didn't want to do a deal he'd be silent. His open is just that. As a smart and experienced negotiator he has already mapped out his target and walk-away positions. His open includes items he doesn't care about, he will give up some things and agree to some of Pelosi/Shumer demands - we call these elegant negotiables: valuable to the other party, not harmful to our targeted deal.

It's a pleasure to watch someone that knows what they are doing and that has a clearly defined objective. Unlike watching feckless Obama 'negotiate' the Iran nuke deal.
