"There have been huge protests taking place in Hong Kong over the past several weeks. Crowd estimates are up to 2 million, which is quite remarkable for a country with a total population of 7 million.

Hong Kong protestors are singing hymns. In fact, the hymn 'Sing Hallelujah to the Lord' has become the unofficial anthem of the protests. But that's not all. They're also flying the American flag and singing the American national anthem.

"For these reasons, it is clear that this is not a progressive protest. This is a conservative and even, dare I say it, a Christian-based protest. You can also tell this is not a progressive-based protest because the protesters are removing the rubbish from the streets after the protests. This is something progressives never do. If this were a pink hat/Anti-Trump hate fest protest, the entire city would look and smell like a homeless camp, the streets would be filthy, filled with rubbish, and dotted with steaming piles of poo. And petty crime would be rampant, and some not so petty, like rape. Yeah, #metoo, b*tches.

"You can also tell these are not progressive protests because they are remaining focused on the issue that sparked them, that is, Beijing's proposed new extradition rules. In contrast, rat bastard commie protests are all over the map, as every brain-dead progressive with a grudge and a general feeling of resentment and entitlement (which would be all of them, actually) shows up to push his/her/xir pet issue, whether it's hate Trump, hate Israel, hate white people, hate guns, hate America, or hate Trump. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what the protests are actually about because of all the sub-protests, and I also think a number of guys show up just to party and to see if they can pick up some loose trim. Yeah, #metoo again.

"Progressives are no doubt champing at the bit to get involved with the HK protests to turn them into a progressive hate orgy. They would love to do that. But so far, they appear to have been unable to. Perhaps it's because of the hymn-singing and the flying of the American flag unironically and with pride. Singing Christian hymns to a progressive is, heh, waving an actual cross in the face of an actual vampire. Because progressives can only exist by draining the life of others. So never invite progressives to your protest. They'll only cause trouble, sh* all over everything and then run away, leaving you to clean up their mess."

Monday's celebs: Singer/songwriter Rita Coolidge and one of her erstwhile paramours Leon Russell. I had them linked romantically, but I did not know there's another connection:

196 The Rita Coolidge / Leon Russell connection is that they were both members of Joe Cocker's band during the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.

Posted by: Top.Man. at August 19, 2019 11:48 AM (FGTa+)

And not just Leon Russell. According to the 'Personal Life' section of her wiki page, Ms. Coolidge was very liberal with her affections in her younger years, and may have been a factor in the break-up of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young when she broke it off with Nash and hooked up with Stills. Or maybe it was the other way around, I forget. Another fun fact about Rita: there is credible evidence that she substantially wrote the coda for the Derek and the Dominos mega-hit Layla, for which she is uncredited (the 'coda' is the long piano solo at the end). The 'Layla' section of her wiki page has the story. Listen to this piece by her sister Priscilla and her husband Booker T. (yes, *that* Booker T.) and you'll hear what I'm talking about.

Please feel free to copy requests which you see on the board and send them to me. I am unable to be on the board all the time, even though it seems like I am, and so if people don’t tell me about prayer requests I may have no way of knowing. Thx and God bless!

Please remember the Prayer of St. Francis:

Of movies I can remember watching in the last 10 or so years, BvS probably had the greatest dropoff between opening scene and the rest of the movie.

Seeing Superman and Zod's destruction from the perspective of the people in the city as even Batman is completely powerless to do anything was awesome.

Unfortunately the rest of the movie sucked ass.

Same here -- reading the Art Thread'll do it to ya every time.

Henry Cavill, of course, is also the only other actor to play Napoleon Solo, the role originated by Robert Vaughn in the TV Man from U.N.C.L.E.. As for Amy, I'll watch just about anything she's in at least once, including the one where she plays a young New York woman obsessed with making all of Julia Child's recipes in the space of a year for her blog. Can't think of the title. But, yanno, Amy, redhead, fair skin and all, so . . .

==========

I've only ever seen the Ultimate Cut, which is a full 3 hours, and I really like it. The plot is unnecessarily over-complicated and there are signs of first draftness everywhere. However, I think it actually works quite well.

I've heard that the theatrical version is a cluttered mess where nothing makes sense.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, The Black Mamba at August 21, 2019 11:21 AM (iikV8)

25 Off on the weekly posting of this:

Predictions for someone to google and point to and say what do YOU know anyway:

Won't make it to Iowa:

Marianne Williamson (ultimate vanity candidacy, she won't be able to qualify for the ballot)
Wayne Messam (Who? Exactly)
Tulsi Gabbard (she's burned too many bridges)


Drops after Iowa:

John Delaney (self funded vanity)
Andrew Yang (self funded vanity)
Julian Castro (old, old news)
Amy Klobuchar (last finisher for the women)
Kirsten Gillibrand (next-to-last finisher for the women)
Seth Moulton (maybe - he might not get to Iowa, candidacy doesn't have any reason for being. Against the Iraq War? So was/is Trump.)
Eric Swalwell (candidacy is to troll Trump - a costly way to do it)
Jay Inslee

Drops after NH:

John Hickenlooper (honestly I just needed to put someone here)

Drops after SC:

Beto O'Rourke (he can fund himself past a poor showing in Iowa, and the big dropout after Iowa will make him look like a mover until he gets to SC)

Drops after Super Tuesday:

Elizabeth Warren (nobody really likes her anyway - Super Tuesday will demonstrate that definitively)
Cory Booker (he will already be reeling from going nowhere with the black vote in SC)


That will leave the field with this:

Joe Biden
Pete Buttigieg
Bernie Sanders
Kamala Harris

Bernie will run to the convention regardless of where he is. But he is already done.

Now here it gets tricky - Harris I don't think can win but the Dems can't let the last candidates all be white men. UNLESS - she drops out, immediately endorses Biden, and Biden says, immediately, I will be glad to have her on my ticket when we get to the convention. Despite the fact I think he won't win, this might actually make him win. If those campaigns are too bitter with each other to do that, that only leaves one candidate:

Buttigieg






Posted by: blaster at April 26, 2019 10:42 AM (ZfRYq)


Since then Swalwell is out. And HICKENLOOPER is out. The end of Hickenloopermentum I guess. (I think two or three adds, too. DeBlasio and Steyer. Maybe someone else.)

Imagine being Swalwell or Hickenlooper and seeing that Marianne Williamson is still in. Or Klobuchar!

HK remains ruled by British law, as per the 1998 turnover agreement, or whatever it's called. Chinese law is very different. The extradition rules make it way easier for the rat bastard commies to snatch people and use a different standard of 'justice' to get the conviction they want.

Ok I had to look him up - I forgot about the murder part. Musician named Jim Gordon, sentenced to 16 years to life in 1984, he's still in prison, last parole hearing he said he couldn't have committed a murder, since his mother was still alive and came to talk to him all the time in his cell. (he stabbed her to death with a butcher knife in 1983)

It sounds like he spends most of his days having long conversations with people who aren't there. He's up again for parole in 2021.

Wait, what? I'm thinking she is in top three, maybe top two. She is a favorite of the bitter single women block, she is buying lots of black votes with reparations talk and she will get most of the Sandernistas after Bernie drops out.

Perhaps. But that would mean Bernie would have to drop out. He won't. He didn't in 2016 and he has plenty of money in the campaign coffers.

He and Warren are running pretty much in the same lane, and Warren can't out reparations Kamala. Biden is getting the lion's share of the black vote.

I think that running all the way to Super Tuesday will be a pretty big feat in the crowd, but California is in Super Tuesday this cycle - it will be the end of the road for anyone not in the top 3.

139 Chairman Hogg releases his plan for the Communist takeover of America, er, I mean gun confiscation, er, I mean "common sense gun safety"

Peace Plan for a Safer America pdf
https://t.co/3rFMdtp4PJ

The Peace Plan would create a national licensing and gun registry, ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; implement a mandatory gun buyback program; and install a "national director of gun violence prevention" who would report directly to the president and coordinate the federal response to what advocates call a national public health emergency.

It would dramatically increase restrictions around owning guns, including raising the age to 21 from 18 for those who want to buy guns. It calls for a "multi-step" gun licensing system, overseen by a federal agency, that would include in-person interviews and a 10-day wait before gun purchases are approved. The license would be renewed annually.

In the vein of the Green New Deal, the Peace Plan takes a holistic approach to gun violence by also calling for automatic voter registration when those eligible turn 18, along with the creation of a "Safety Corps," which the authors compare to a Peace Corps for gun violence prevention.

They also endorse "eliminating the Senate's legislative filibuster in order to pass a robust liberal agenda" & "Pack the Courts" increasing the number of Supreme Court justices in order to dilute the current conservative majority.

Last I heard, she's short on both the number of donors and qualifying polls. It does seem highly unlikely that she won't make the next debate.

However, that doesn't preclude the idea that Biden would select her as VP. Biden beats Trump (giggles). And then Biden either dies in office, gets 25th Amendmented, resigns, or simply doesn't run in 2024 leaving Gabbard as de facto incumbent.

208 I think that running all the way to Super Tuesday will be a pretty big feat in the crowd, but California is in Super Tuesday this cycle - it will be the end of the road for anyone not in the top 3.
Posted by: blaster

...........

I am tempted to say it will be the end of the road for all but Biden. Because by that time, he will have an almost insurmountable lead in delegates. Delegate apportionment rules this cycle are brutal, with zero delegates going to anyone not getting 15% in a state's primary/caucus.

But.. there's Bernie.. the far lefties may well coalesce around Bernie..

So, once again Bernie Bros will be all butthurt when the establishment candidate gets picked at the convention. Even worse if it comes down to superdelegates on the second round.

It would be delicious if all the socialists stayed home again on election day!

Or, maybe Bernie will run as an independent! (although I don't think he can)

for a weird film, it had some amazing people in it - even Rita Coolidge got into a scene.

Only a few protesters had American flags.

One person carrying the U.S. flag interviewed by Asia Times noted that he wants to "urge the U.S. Congress to pass the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act as soon as possible."

@wilfredchan
i spoke to some of the hong kong protesters waving american flags. (they are a very, very small minority, ignored by most protesters, but nonetheless get a lot of attention from the media.)

The protester allegedly said he wants to wave the U.S. flag... to invite a Chinese military crackdown that will hopefully provoke the United States into taking more concrete action.

290 230 I found a good rundown of "Vanishing Point" and who was in it on the net:

https://tinyurl.com/y496k9c9

for a weird film, it had some amazing people in it - even Rita Coolidge got into a scene. I remember it fondly, I was either in 8th or 9th grade, finally old enough to go to the weekend matinee at the mall movie house on my own, and it was the first time I ever saw real Boobeh's! up on the screen. (the motorcycle ride) I still hate the ending.

But I would say, if you want to understand what the early 70's were like, watching "Vanishing Point" is a good start.
Posted by: Tom Servo at August 21, 2019 11:51 AM (Kpl3J)



Rita was up on stage with the Christian revivalists. And don't forget the nude motorcyclist.

Although I WILL say that the gospel and Jesus themes in the movie were interesting. Yes, among the drug use and the nihilism, there was a strong Christian undercurrent. The Left would NEVER let that come out today

I was closing on my house purchase and needed insurance. Calls to USAA were going nowhere. Until I finally got an answer. The woman at USAA who was handling my case went on maternity leave and never told anyone else what was going on.

I still haven't read the details. and I don't have to, in order to know they're almost assuredly taking him out of context and he was using the word "king" colloquially, like saying "I'm the king of real estate" or "I'm the king of the babes"

I like USAA switched to them back in early 2000 because Allstate sent us a letter and said they would no longer insure homes for anyone who lived in a hurricane zone. They were happy to keep insuring our cars though. We lived in CT at the time and dropped them like a hot potato.

328 As I recall, is is not Peking's extradition law, but Hong Kong's. They had a Taiwan dirtbag kill his girfriend, and beat feet back to Taiwan. They had no extradition treaty with Taiwan to get him back. So they set up Extradition Treaties with a lot of other countries, including Peking. Then they realized it would be a two way street. The local government screwed the pooch here, and they will not back-off. Now the Chicoms are backing her, and looking to restore order. From their point of view.

I love "inevitability" arguments.

The problem is this: what can China do? Sure, they can march the PLA through Hong Kong and open fire on the people until the guns melt white hot on their mounts, but they could have done that ages ago. Yet they haven't. And I'd argue that they can't, because if they do, they will lay bare what many of us already know: China cannot be trusted to keep their word. (If they can't follow the Sino-British Joint Agreement, what else won't they follow?)

China is in a very hard place right now and we should all be enjoying this.
