The Morning Rant

"So, the Ukraine narrative has collapsed worse than Adam Schiff's credibility because it was obvious that the alleged whistleblower (i.e. leaker) didn't have first-hand knowledge of what he reported. In fact, the rules were changed in August, suspiciously close to the time he came forward, to allow second-hand knowledge to be used in whistleblower complaints. This is such an obviously phoney-baloney set-up that only someone as credulous as, well, pretty much anyone in the national media believe it.

"So it became general knowledge that not having any first-hand knowledge does not make for a credible whistleblower complaint.

"Guess what happened next?

"You're right, a *second* whistleblower has allegedly come forward. And, wouldn't you know it, the lawyer is claiming that this whistleblower does have first-hand knowledge. Wow! What a fantastic coincidence! Just when the whistleblower criteria is settled in the public mind, Trump's enemies pull one out of their ass that that precisely meets the now-known requirements.

"If the rules were that whistleblowers had to be left-handed Lithuanian midgets who enjoyed eating pickles while wearing pink frilly dresses, you can be sure that somewhere, somehow, the Democrats would be able to dig one up. This is basically the same play they ran with Kavanaugh. When it became obvious that Christine Doctor Ford was pretty much lying her ass off, suddenly, a number of other "credible" witnesses suddenly materialized out of thin air, each one with a kinky Kavanagh story more unbelievably bizarre than the previous one, until finally they had Kavanaugh as the captain of a pirate ship doing rape runs up and down the eastern seaboard in between celebratory keggers.

"And nobody in the media bothered asking the obvious question: "hey, where were all these supposedly 'credible' witnesses during any of Kavanaugh's previous confirmation hearings?"

"And this is what we're seeing again. It seems that the "Kavanaugh 2-step" is the only play the Democrats have in their playbook."

Friday's celebs: The first celeb hottie isLucy Liu, thus completing my trio of Asian actresses for the week. Also, Michael Parks who was a bit older than those photographs I chose of him when he appeared with Ms. Liu in Quentin Tarantino's film Kill Bill.

Also, a correction:

278 The first photo is not Jun Ji-Hyun aka Gianna Jun. That's Chinese actress Li Bingbing. I can't be sure about the second photo. The third is definitely Gianna.

Of course, this is correct. Li Bingbing it is. Pretty sure I got the other two right, though.

He's one of two people who could still possibly called a movie star (the other is Tom Cruise). Everyone else is tied to properties that elevate them more than anything else.

Although, Smith's star has diminished over the last few years, probably starting with After Earth.

But there was a time when Hitch was a big hit, and he had the first two Bad Boys movies, Independence Day, and even Ali where he got legit credit for his chops.

Joker is phenomenal on so many different levels, raw film making, cinematography, story and acting by both Joaquin Phoneix, who should win the Oscar going away, and also the supporting actors.

An audience at a Long Beach theater in California decided to leave their screening of "Joker" Saturday night after a man was acting suspiciously.

According to the Long Beach Post, police say an adult male walked to the front of the theater while wearing a backpack. The subject looked at the crowd, causing people to fear he was in possession of a weapon.

Joker is phenomenal on so many different levels, raw film making, cinematography, story and acting by both Joaquin Phoneix, who should win the Oscar going away, and also the supporting actors.

There are some elements of the story that reminded me of Jacobs ladder and the Thin Red Line.


I would highly recommend everyone see it in a theater and soon before it gets spoiled by people revealing it.

**shrugs**

Good on anyone who enjoys it, but Joker is not a movie that I have any interest in seeing.

102 They keep saying "whistle blower" but there is no whistle blower. The first met with Schiff and used lawyers to concoct a story based on vapors.


The second (through tenth?) has not appeared. It is not whistle blowing when the conversation is already made public. So the people don't deserve any special protections. But this is all a Narrative built by DeepState, colluding across several agencies.


Also, I keep hearing, the whistle blower status is for blowing a whistle on others in the IC, and it doesn't apply to POTUS doing his job.


The Levin interview with Robert Ray is good. Separation of powers means congressional oversight/impeachment is only for serious crimes and misdemeanors (which the left is trying to manufacture via false narrative). Oversight does not make them boss over the executive, with ability to order transcripts of every phone call.

109 An audience at a Long Beach theater in California
decided to leave their screening of "Joker" Saturday night after a man
was acting suspiciously.



According to the Long Beach Post, police say an adult male walked to
the front of the theater while wearing a backpack. The subject looked
at the crowd, causing people to fear he was in possession of a weapon.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at October 07, 2019 11:27 AM (aKsyK)

He then proceeded to the center seat in the center aisle of the theater, sat, pulled probably $100 of snacks out of his backpack and enjoyed the movie with nobody within 3-seats of him. Just a guess.

Um, Destroying Turkey's military would be an attack on a NATO country, which would be alright with me as I think NATO is a joke but that would be problematic.


A better course would be for NATO to scrounge up 2000 troops from it's 1.5 million man army to replace the American presence.

197 Willowed: Saw Joker. Phoenix's performance is phenomenal.

(No spoilers)

I thought it was a very good film, with nicely done shorthand to Scorsese's King of Comedy and Taxi Driver.

With Scorsese in the background, it's hard to know how much of this movie might have been him taking the handlebars, but if it's all Phillips, then the heretofore gross-out-comedy director is really hitting full stride.

I don't think there is anything to fear from this movie, as long as you don't shy away from gritty. I read a quote from Phillips who said that if you can't tell that Joker is the bad guy by the end of the movie, that says something about you.

And the final scene clinches it.

We can feel some amount of sympathy for Arthur through most of the movie. He certainly is a victim through some of it. But as he begins to get what he sees as "control" of his life, he loses us as he cares more about how big an effect he can have.

What I noted at the end of the movie is that while the more comic book-style movies are violating comic traditions all over the place, the gritty and realistic Joker actually resolves itself, rather affirming some comic cannon.

But seriously, since the NeverTrumpers have now conceded that outrage mobbing and calling for boycotting corporations is acceptable as a tactic in some instances, it really makes it clear that their previous disapproval of the tactic against various corporations that were attempting to silence "bad" conservative voices was simply because they agreed with the corporations that it was a good idea to silence the "bad" conservatives.

It all depends on how thoroughly the legacy of Ataturk has been purged from their military.

1. Free elections.
2. Islamists win, impose Islamofascist dictatorship.
3. Military comes out of barracks, shoots Islamists.
4. Free elections.

318 The House has already moved beyond the phone call transcript. Now they are relying on the narrative that it's edited, or that all the QPQ stuff happened in the unproven allegations of the WB. ("Well he was right about there being a phone call!")

There is no proof that Biden did anything. But we need to impeach the President regardless of proof!

Meanwhile, I examined the section of the FEC regulations, again. It talks about

•a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value,...
•a contribution or donation...
•an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement...

All those words mean: money , financing. People outside of our country can't help finance an election.

1. It would be bizarre to just wedge in "information" into that context for "thing of value".
2. FEC has already rule that "information" is not a "thing of value" in that sense.
3. If you try to convict somebody on such vague phrasing how could you ever pass a reasonable doubt that somebody clearly broke the law if it's not even clear that the case being applied applies?

335 Aesthetically, I like the dark hair/light eyes. Could any of us pick out the Xena woman in her own light hair? (Yeah, I forget her name, but remember thinking 'meh' when I saw her own hair.)

Let's see what the Merkel's Fourth Reich does to mess up the EU. For my own cheap seats analysis, Turkey has threatened too much and will not be a major factor, just as the Fourth Reich.

I hope that the Visegrad group makes a good showing and that we have our military bases scattered throughout.

The House has already moved beyond the phone call transcript. Now they
are relying on the narrative that it's edited, or that all the QPQ stuff
happened in the unproven allegations of the WB. ("Well he was right
about there being a phone call!")

funny thing i saw this weekend. forget which show, coulda been tucker:

fox host: but i don't see the quid pro quo in the transcript! where is it? show me.


dem shill: well, if you combine the transcript with tweets arising from the volker testimony...

at which point i began laughing so hard that my finger accidentally hit the "change channel" button.

340 I feel great pity for Kurds there, but it's a forever war. They need to cut a deal with the Turks or the Russians.
Posted by: Tom Servo at October 07, 2019 11:43 AM (Kpl3J)

The Kurds are still muzzies, and from time to time, some of them do the typical evil muzzie things. Saintly innocents, they aren't.

Just not what Volker actually says...

You have to watch these increasingly authoritarian Dems, man. They want to make it almost a crime that a citizen, Guiliani talked to a top foreign government official.

Their idea of what is and isn't a crime is narrowing to what hurts them or helps them.

344 I think Yang can pass Harris in the polls - he already leads her in California.


Posted by: blaster at October 07, 2019 11:47 AM (9VeU0)

But Harris cannot pass Wang.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at October 07, 2019 12:22 PM (jEgzt)

345 I mean the reason that we have anything like the Logan Act is that citizens can correspond with governors of other countries--they just can't negate official US diplomatic policy while doing so.

But the Dems don't want Guiliani talking with their former prison bitch, and so they're acting like not specifically going through the State department is some sort of scandal.

These people should never govern.

347 I had a rainy day to waste, so I went to Rambo.
I think the script was 2 pages long. This was not even a good bad movie.
Spoilers
.
.
.
.
20 minutes of introducing an excuse for the movie, then Rambo forgetting everything he ever knew about stealth and walking in like he's in High Noon.
Followed by a Steven Seagal-esque once sided Armageddon.

Gets butt kicked, doesn't stitch himself up.
Forges a knife to give the excuse a present. "You'll need this". "No I won't". "Ok" Knife never seen again.
Gets warned by doctor after concussion. Beware of lights and sounds and oh never mind....no consequences on this loose thread.
Weird version of Top Gun's Blue tongue scene. (Stallone has a really odd underbite)
Rescues the excuse. Tells the other POWs "come with me". "Naw. We're good here. Let me know if you see Liam Neeson"
And the worse part was during the credits. Stills from First Blood rolled with the credits and reminded everyone (ok, both of us in the theater). how much better the original was.
