Creeping Sharia

British TV Star in Bikini Discovers Sharia Law

Arrested (video at link) for walking around in a bikini in The Maldives. She's screaming she's being “sexually assaulted” (I didn't see that in the video, it just looked like getting arrested to me). Sweetie, they're Islamist. To them your outfits invite sexual assault. I always wonder what these leftists think is going to happen to them if they successfully import sharia to the west. The Tolkien Trust Uses Lord of the Rings Income to Fund Muslim Migrants and Terrorists. None of their pet causes-not gays, not trans, not sexual freedom, not female equality, not abortion, none of them-will survive. If they think they're living in The Handmaiden's Tale because some Christian tells them, just tells them, mind you, doesn't do anything to them, that they believe homosexuality is a sin or abortion is murder, what are they going to do when the real thing shows up on their doorstep? How fucking stupid are they? Pretty fucking stupid:

Maybe they'll get kinder, gentler Islamists and be allowed to choose: Crane, roof or wall.

Decision 2020

I’ve been a Democrat for 20 years. Here’s what I experienced at Trump’s rally in New Hampshire.

Now, she's still a lib, but the SJW rift in the knitting community drove her to check out the Trump rally. What did she find? Read the article to find out. In case you don't know, the rift I'm referring to happened about a year ago when the premier website in the knitting community, Ravelry, announced that it would no longer allow members to feature any Trump or republican themed patterns (members design and sell patterns for things like socks, hats, sweaters, etc which other members can buy and them make the items themselves) because they were “hate speech”. This was the typical SJW intrusion into a formally non-political space, and the results were the same as always: outcry, demands for purity, etc. I think the founder of the site, even after banning those icky right-wing knitters, came under fire for insufficient purity or something until he “discovered” that he was gay or bi or trans or some such nonsense. Suffice it to say that it ripped apart what heretofore had been a happy little community of people dedicated to the fiber arts. My wife is a knitter, she designs and sells patterns, and her sales fell off the cliff after all this went down. Ravelry is the 800lb gorilla in that web space and there just aren't good alternatives with sufficient traffic to replace it. (By the way, my wife is selling a lot of her samples (after you design a pattern, you have to knit and photograph an example of it so people can see what it looks like), if you're in the market for that kind of stuff hit her up. Be warned, hand knit items made with home spun, small batch dyed yarn aren't just beautiful, they're expensive)

Plague Pushes China To Breaking Point

I do wish I knew what the real story was. China is lying, that's a given, but by how much? Their actions do not match a country of a billion and a half people dealing with a couple of thousand deaths. But what's the real story? I don't know. I don't even know if the footage “smuggled” out showing violent detention of people and dead folks on the streets is real either. If only there were a group of people, or some organizations, dedicated to investigating current events and letting the rest of us know what is going on.

Ted Cruz Makes Machine Gun Bacon

That's great Ted, but that doesn't appear to be a select fire weapon. No reason to give the gun grabbers more, er, ammo, in their campaign of misinformation. Also, does anyone know how to get melted plastic off the barrel of a gun? I was at the range and I put the AR-15 down on a sandbag after running through a few mags. I didn't notice that someone had repaired the bag with duct tape, and the hot barrel melted the tape onto itself. I'm not sure how to get it off.

32 I have commenced to drinking heavily.

It took me two days to remove a 30 yr old, corroded tub drain. Miraculously I did not destroy the old pipe, or tub, that it fits into, praise heaven. I finished the job about 40 min ago.

The replacement drain I bought to replace it is 1/4" too big.

According to a recent report by the US Food and Drug Administration, China is home to approximately 13% of the 1,788 facilities that manufacture APIs for drugs marketed in the US.

We should be fine, if we reroute out supply chains away from China.

Already India is 18%, the EU is 26%, the US is 28%, Canada is 2%, and the rest of the world is 13% of the 1,788 facilities that manufacture APIs for drugs marketed in the US.

44 Watched "Dog Soldiers" tonight. A pretty good horror film, soldiers vs. werewolves. Recommended. Much better than the same director's "The Descent" which was good until the Obligatory Liberal Ending.

Also, if you search YouTube for "Flicks Vault," they have a pretty good print of the 1960's film "Island of Terror," which I highly recommend.

--YES, the creature effects are pretty bad. But 2 things--if it were made in a later decade, the creatures would be the result of trying to create a "super soldier" and there'd be a military guy screaming "No, no, we had a deal! We had a deal!"

Also, you can learn the origin of chicken noodle soup when you see the creatures get quiet for a bit.

45 Last month, the medical supply firm Cardinal Health recalled 2.9 million surgical gowns "cross contaminated" at a plant in China; the blood pressure drug Valsartan also saw shortages recently, thanks to tainted active ingredients at one Chinese plant. The combination of supply chain disruptions and increased demand at hospitals if coronavirus spreads to the U.S. could prove devastating.

All you need to know about the numbers coming out of China, I posted a few threads back. In short, they are welding doors shut for apartments of people who test positive.

This means that 99% of people avoid all tests. They avoid the test since they do not want to be welded into their home to die.

That is the point. You punish people in order to "encourage the others" and China is doing their best to reduce the numbers reported.

So, Make up your own numbers 10x? 100x? who knows but it is much worse than they say simply because they want it that way.

80 Last year, manufacturing of intermediate or finished goods in China, as well as pharmaceutical
source material, accounted for 95 percent of U.S. imports of ibuprofen, 91 percent of U.S. imports
of hydrocortisone, 70 percent of U.S. imports of acetaminophen, 40 to 45 percent of U.S. imports
of penicillin, and 40 percent of U.S. imports of heparin, according to the Commerce Department.
In total, 80 percent of the U.S. supply of antibiotics are made in China.

While much of the fill finishing work (the actual formulation of finished drug capsules and tablets)
is done outside China (and often in India) the starting and intermediate chemicals are often
sourced in China. Moreover, the U.S. generic drug industry can no longer produce certain critical
medicines such as penicillin and doxycycline without these chemical components.

83 Probably something that won't be getting talked about. YouTube is demonetizing any video that mentions Coronavirus because it doesn't want to associate with any conspiracy videos. So even if you mention it in a legit video like potential problems with supply of various goods they will not allow you to monetize the video.

Ordered Papa Johns as thats the best delivery available 'round here.

We usually go Papa Murphy's, but oven - installed day before Thanksgiving - is dead and has to be shipped back for replacement. Quit 1 DAY after the Amazon replacement period and they refused to do anything. The manufacturer however stepped up and is giving me a prepaid shipping label.

Why won't China release tests on effectiveness of that magic fog they are spraying, or even what is in it? Or tests on viral load in environment?

Why are Chinese Dr.'s still using N95 masks? are they unable to produce decent PPE? They built a hospital in 10 days! Japanese quarantine worker tested positive, they say he wiped his face with glove, and took off mask and reused, so it seems better PPE is vital and China knows this since the body count of their own health care workers seems high, but again, they are not reporting that.


What about details on who has left the country, when, and to what cities? This is China, they have pervasive monitoring and data processing of their citizens, and yet they appear to be doing nothing to warn or help other countries (that I know of, but I see nothing reported.)

lol

via Breitbart:

In a dark irony, most of the world's face masks--now ubiquitous in China as a precaution--are made in China and Taiwan, and even for those made elsewhere, some component parts are Chinese-sourced. Shortages have led China to declare the masks a "strategic resource," reserving them for medical workers.
U.S. hospitals are "critically low" on respiratory masks, according to medical-supply middlemen. Lack of protective gear could increase vulnerability to the virus, and the one place on earth suffering from production shutdowns is the one place where most of the protective gear originates.

But I am not sure, in the long run, if it was a good thing.

It fostered an unrealistic mindset.

Ordinary oven cleaner and some will get melted plastic or rubber off chrome without hurting it a bit. You'll have to ask someone else whether it will also take off the phosphating or whatever treatment is on the barrel.

Wild Wild West was canceled after the fourth season by ABC as kind of preemptive sop to congress, where violent television programming was under fire. As a kid I liked Hogan's Heroes a little bit.

I was laid off in 2009, a few days before my birthday. Thanks, Obama! I spent six months applying for jobs with every civil engineering company within a hundred miles of my AO. Most did not respond. Some of the better ones did. A couple actually expressed interest, and were kind enough to let me know that they had hired someone else.

But there was a lot of radio static.

So, I spent two and a half years at Walmart, until I was miraculously rehired by my old company.

Weird, but, damn it, I love the people I work with. At a Christmas party my boss gave me a big bear hug and said he hated laying off so many people and that he was so glad that I did not hold a grudge. I told him, man, it was not your fault. Apparently some people blamed him.

When I was looking in 2008, when a company turned down your application they let you know. Now, 90% of the time they just don't bother telling you.
Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh at February 13, 2020 11:11 PM (7rVsF)


Most companies just scan the resumes and do a search for certain phrases on your resume. If your resume has that term, it makes the first cut.

The Mrs found that out 5 years ago when she was laid off. Her company gave them access to a job search company, and they told her to tailor her resume for each job she applied for. It worked. Her company rehired her 2 months later for a better position in the department she always wanted to be in.

283 About ten years ago one of the tractor lines at Deere laid off quite a few guys for several weeks, due to a single component being temporarily unobtanium. They keep a couple weeks supply on hand, maybe, it's "just in time" inventory, and they try to have more than one supplier, but stuff happens sometimes.

I would say the "Open Borders Now!" crowd has been subdued of late, though (or course) there is a subset or component that seems to think it is (wait for it) "racist" to try and protect oneself, or one's community, or even a whole country from the pandemic. These people really are too stupid and/or dangerous to keep around any longer. Now that's a fact.

It seems to me if they would have enacted serious hard core travel bans a month or so ago, it would have made a tremendous difference.

Then there's some concern, perhaps justified that this is an escaped bioweapon from the facility at Wuhan. Or, maybe it isn't a modified virus, just sloppy controls. It does seem the government response is completely out of proportion to the numbers. Something like 400 to 600 million people are on lockdown or quarantine.

So imagine say, if 1/3 or 1/2 of the American population was told to stay home for 3 weeks. What could go wrong?

My last job I read resumes for hiring in my dept.

I know cover letters are important style-wise, but reality is a whole 'nother issue. I didn't have time to read cover letters, just scan (with my eyeballs) the bullet points/company history.

Don't get me wrong, if I were looking for a job today, I'd still use a cover letter, but I know they really don't mean squat except that they must be in literate English with no dangling participles, misspelled words or improper punctuation. The main course is the resume and, being busy, I had no time for appetizers.

I know cover letters are important style-wise, but reality is a whole 'nother issue. I didn't have time to read cover letters, just scan (with my eyeballs) the bullet points/company history.

Don't get me wrong, if I were looking for a job today, I'd still use a cover letter, but I know they really don't mean squat except that they must be in literate English with no dangling participles, misspelled words or improper punctuation. The main course is the resume and, being busy, I had no time for appetizers.

Posted by: Common Tater


Which half or third?

Public indoctrination centers education facilities and their students? Meh.

Techies who telecommute 4 days a week anyway and just come in for free pizza day? Meh.

Congress? All my meh.

322 That this virus is worse than they are letting on is implied by the mere fact they have 500 million people locked down? Is there any precedent for that in history?

I've no doubt they are using this to make "inconvenient" people disappear, that stands to reason. It's a communist dictatorship after all.

Nobody in this country will take anything seriously. Someone infected will decide that "self quarantine" doesn't apply to them, it is critically vital they go shopping at the mall or go to the gym, and get a bite to eat at the Olive Garden. Some cretin in UK took an "Uber" taxi and self-presented to the hospital.

How much information do you have for indiviual positions that would require you to customize your resume?

Are you going to leave experience off of your resume?

Customizing resumes is weird if you are staying in your industry.

331 I was told to tailor my resumes to each job by a job search firm my former company paid for us to use back in 1994, before all the resume scanning technology. When I told people later that you had to have multiple resumes when one is searching for a job, tailoring the resume bullet points to what you could glean from the job posting, people either thought I was nuts or 'too much work'. If I was told the latter, I would then explain that looking for work IS your full-time job at the moment. Any who still gave me dumb looks needed, as Berserker points out above, some warlordin' done on them.

Wife set up the kitchen table as her desk and would search the internet, interact with the job search company, and send out her resume all day long. This was while she was collecting her 18 months of severance and full benefits from the company that laid her off. I had told her not to worry and take a few weeks off (she was laid off a couple of weeks before Christmas, they found out the layoffs were coming in Sept). By Christmas Day she was stir crazy and wanting to get back to work.

At a certain level you don't use resumes anymore to obtain opportunities, but I do look at them for below C suite managers not referred by my contacts and the team looks at them below that.

But what I would caution any resume reviewer is, the worst decision to use when hiring is that you must have a proven leaders in every position on the team - what I found when I saw that was a collection of A type personalities that spent more time arguing or politicking than producing. Ugh. Hire some B types, will ya?

Remember the talk of all the people that the Obama folks embedded in the White House from mid December 2016 to early January 2017? These leakers are those people.

Trump isn't used to subordinates setting up fiefdoms in his organizations, so he was kind of shocked at how easy the people in the WH would leak things to the press. It's why Ivanka and Kushner seem to be his intermediaries that he sends out when he wants radio silence.

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop


Would have been better, yes, but the only window we had to do that was the brief period when we were the only nuke power. We couldn't have beaten China and Russia by ourselves, so the only way to win would have been to kill tens of millions of them with nukes. Which frankly would have made us into something as bad as them.

I've been watching Johns Hopkins. But the curve just took a big hockey stick upward swing, apparently due to different testing modalities and reporting criteria, so who knows where we are now.

Hopefully the new criteria will allow for a new ongoing curve to tell the tale.

I think most of the horde here has not been exposed to a lot of the video coming out of the PRC. You are not going to find it from the MSM and twitter and FB have been nuking a lot of it. When you filter out the bogus trolling - which accounts for about 80% of it, in the form of mis-attributed older video - it is not looking good.

There are a number of apparently legit videos of hospitals, building exteriors/breezeways, and vehicles stacked with body bags, with people in PPE scurrying about. Hospital workers trying to fit multiple dead children into a single body bag. Lots, and I mean lots, of footage of individual apartments and entire buildings being sealed up by guys in PPE - welding and piling debris seems the common method. People getting chased down - those who fled Hubei are being rounded up - and shoved into vans.

The PRC almost certainly either knows more than they are letting on, or they strongly suspect. We know for a fact that the labs in Hubei were creating chimera coronaviruses by combining them with other more lethal diseases, because they published papers on it. My guess is a simple lab screwup, which they are already notorious for.

418 I will add that most official western sources for virus info are worthless. States are frequently not publicly reporting cases and the fed authorities are scrambling to prevent near-term panic while they sort out supply issues.

There are not all that many confirmed in the US, yet, but most new cases that have been in the US for a while are being leaked online 1-3 days in advance - they are not releasing info in a timely manner.

My state alone has several hundred people being monitored with half-ass DIY stay at home quarantine.

Containment in the US is all about slowing the rate at which cases require serious medical attention; we're not going to avoid this. First, their screening methods were worthless for those not coming straight from the PRC. Second, a large fraction of the test kits that were distributed were flawed. We're already seeing those that tested negative and who were released come back with symptoms and test positive.

If some of the 200 or so released from quarantine the other day don't come back positive later, I will be shocked.

We were in a damned if you do possibly damned if you do not situation in late January.

We are still under 15 confirmed cases with no deaths, but that incubation period is like the holy grail for terrorists. The current mortality rate, not so much for a bioweapon but it certainly kills.

Likelihood of brainwashed martyrs self infecting and traveling is high. 2.3 percent of several million is a scary number.

Those assholes were stealing Ebola victim bodies a few years ago, you know. It just does not spread so easily From what I can understand.

This fucking thing is THAT close to changing world history. One mutation here, one intentional genetic tweak there and the mortality rate jumps. The power of percentages combined with how contagious it is along with no symptoms makes it scary as hell.

I really can't be done in the genuine way. The barrel, yes. Same with the bolt carrier group.

That said, the receiver, upper and lower, are made of a forged aluminum alloy. And hence, have to be either Anodized or Coated by way of "finish".

I'm not altogether sure that either process can measure up to the Colt Royal Blue as found on the Python.

Yep. My friend works for a large commercial real estate company in NYC. (She's met Trump a few times in the past.) All but three people in her office are full of Trump hate. Even going into the kitchen for a cup of tea, the others there are full-throated with their TDS; she can't say anything because she's afraid they'd just fire her. Before the 2016 election, she publicly stated Trump could win. The 'how could you possibly think that?' ridicule she endured was nauseating. After the election, she just had a big ol' shit-eating grin on her face all day and the rest of the company left her alone. She never rubbed their noses in it. But had Skankles won, you can bet the house they would have not held back their insults.

This is why I think Trump will win in a landslide, a landslide in modern terms considering the left are spotted the electoral votes of CA, NY and IL. People instinctively know to shut their mouths when it comes to politics in the workplace, or go along with the lefty mob, but once in the voting booth they are ticking their ballots for Trump.

464 Probably already addressed, but I think (should remember, don't) that the ERRB (enhanced radiation/reduced blast), or "neutron bomb" design, was tested, as it was prior to our (stupid) adherence to the Comprehensive Test Ban.

Not that big a deal. You're tweaking the design to maximize energy release in the form of prompt radiation, as opposed to heat.

And of course the popular conception was ridiculous. Plenty of heat/blast were produced, just that the mix was altered, and you got more fast neutrons to incapacitate enemy personnel.

I think the deal with a neutron bomb is that you if you detonate it high enough above the target, the blast damage is fairly restricted, but the prompt radiation will kill everyone exposed to it. Useful if you want to take over the enemy's infrastructure and use it.

477 not playing down the lives lost or the damage that can be done. But I don't see how this epidemic doesn't hurt Trump. If this thing causes a global slow down, it will hurt Trump. Sure he can say it came from China and he was right all along to focus on that country. But all the usual suspects will be out in force blaming him for one reason or the other. If this does cause a slow down, they wont' be blaming some virus from China.
Trump should do everything possible to nix this thing. Yes to end a disease but also because people will use it to change our country, to warp it.

I am not making light of this situation. I have not followed it as I don't follow most stuff that is a big deal to others. It could be a huge deal, a history books type of thing, or this could be mainly an internet thing. No doubt the internet is a force multiplier here. A few more outbreaks, and bit more hysteria, and there goes the stock market.

I need to do some more study on this as I am way behind the curve. But I don't think this thing helps conservatives as the damage might fall on us in the heat of the election. People seem really fired up about this. That is a bad thing.

Mostly, disagree.

Trump is AHEAD of the Power Curve on this, and especially in the Low Information Mind.

He's been railing against China on many fronts.

* Tariffs

* Trade War

* Intellectual Property Theft

* Spying in the USA

* Baby/Birth Tourism

* Pulling Manufacturing BACK from China

* much, much more.


China collapsing will make Trump look VICTORIOUS.

Even if it hurts us for a while, it'll make him look Prophetic.

His power base are not simple, plain, ignorant nor unsophisticated.

Fact is, they're way ahead of actual Low Information (MSNBC/CNN) voters.

492 See AOP has hit the sack, but on his last comment - raising the altitude of an airburst of course reduces blast effects on the surface. The reason for an ERRB design is you get the larger fast neutron flux without a commensurate (i.e. from typical designs) amount of energy released as heat/blast wave. So you can use a lower altitude airburst, get lots of incapacitating neutron flux, with much less surface/blast effect than you would with your other warheads.

Not likely. This kind of virus mutates relatively quickly. Even if you had a 100% effective vaccine when you released it, it's entirely possible your vaccine becomes worthless in a few months. Even if the Chinese government is that Machiavellian (which I don't believe), this isn't the vector they'd choose for such a strategy.

The Vietnam war is a bleeding sore on the American psyche, even today, but the Vietnamese barely have any cultural memory of it at all. Between then and now they had a population boom, so the population skews very young. And they've fought a couple wars since, including one with China. To them teaming up with the US is no stranger than the US teaming up with the British in WW I.

that is a good point Ace's liver. And not Vietnamese decided to attack us on our own soil like so many others have done. I don't excuse them a bit, and i have good reason to hold them in enmity. They were barbourus and they never fully came clean on POW's.

But you have a fair point. I think I read they had been in a constant state of war since ww2 until at last Vietnam and possibly longer. They have fought a lot of enemies and likely changed sides. I also here most modern Vietnamese like America. I get why it is weird to many, so many sacrificed so much and that is a hard thing to get over. But it is true most Americans came to like Germany and Japan not long after the war. The human spirit can really not be over estimated.

The Corona virus was identified in the 60's. If indeed it was a canidate in their bioweapons program, then they have significant data on it's rate and degree of mutation. It shares characteristics of SARS which does not have a rapid mutation cycle, so who knows . Do I think this is planned? No. If indeed this is an engineered virus, then this is just a classic example of commie efficiency along the lines of Chernobyl. Honestly it's irrelevant.

With populist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont now considered the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination, concern and resistance is growing among mainstream and establishment Democrats inside and outside the nation's capital.

my guess is apple cider vinegar.

i am not sold on the stuff but since i like it no worries there. i use it because i like the taste not because I think it is particularly significant. They say all vinegar works the same way, it does not have to be apple cider. And this is from someone who loves hard apple cider. Hell I made the stuff many times. But there is nothing particular about it that makes it stand out from any other vinegar other than the hype. But if you like it, go for it.

I personally use evoo and citrus on my salad. There is something about vinegar that really does not do well with wine. Vinegar is the enemy of wine and no enemy of wine is a friend of mine.

If MLA was not talking about apple cider vinegar as I presume, I will be all wet i guess.

you have obviously spent some time in New Orleans. as a total aside, there is a funny SNL skit called "Maine Justice"on youtube. They did the skit twice and both of them are funny. The joke is that a lot of people from Katrina were relocated to Maine. But in the comments, so many people from Maine are defensive and act like they have no clue what it is about.

Now i am no big city geographer. But I recall learning that after LA. Maine has the most French speakers in the country. A lot of the people who ended up as Cajuns down in LA came from Maine and Eastern parts of Canada. It was interesting that no one in any comment mentioned, acknowledged, or even realized the French influence in Maine.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have
you know I graduated top of my class in the Mormon Temple ware house, and I've
been involved in numerous secret raids on my local walmart, and I have over 300
cans of tuna. I am trained in gorilla meat preserving and I'm the top jam
cooker in my village's knitting circle. You are nothing to me but just another
shelf to be stacked with cans. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the
likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words.
You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think
again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of local yokels
across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for
the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call
your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill
you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my shipping container
bunker caving in on you. Not only am I extensively trained in surviving with
nothing but a tooth brush and a fidget spinner, but I have access to the entire
imitation crab meat stash of /diy/ and I will use it to its full extent to wipe
your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you
could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about
to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you
couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I

you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

Oddly, or at least odd to me, I have on occasion looked up half remembered Biblical verses while commenting here at AOSHQ. One thing I have noticed is that while many translations are available, many lose the lyrical/poetical elegance of others.

Not really going any where with this, just something I have noticed. Except to say that it reminds me of the discussion earlier in the afternoon yesterday about how many modern scholastic material is perhaps the driest material available for the teens that are assigned to read it.

I think it's great-and interesting--that you recall Bible verses. Some people feel very strongly about the KJV of the Bible being the only one Christians should use. I don't, because I think any Bible that draws people to scripture and to God is fine, but there is a majesty and beauty that the KJV has that some others don't. I like the KJV of Psalm 23,. for instance. Would never use another version in memorial services

I was looking to see who the Judge was and assumed it was a left wing Fredo Judge. What district?

782 Just as there's no downside for lawyers at DOJ, FBI agents and general democrat officials (elected or otherwise) to lie, and arrange elaborate set ups to take down Trump. There have been no consequences...

Yeah, whatever happened to that attorney who lied on the FISA application (I think it was) by changing the actual wording of testimony? I don't recall exact specifics, but there's visible proof right there that he tampered with it. No consequences.

Oh, good grief!

Personally, I'm holding out for the Man/Boy Love Couple searching for a dream home.

Seriously, I can't be the only one, but I've had enough of the in-your-face deviant lifestyles TV shows. The sooner they go under, the better.

784 Few of us probably would have guessed that President Trump apparently spent his first few months in office preoccupied with questions about badgers.


So they tried 'gorilla TV,' didn't they try something about sharks, too?

I watch two of the shows, Wheeler Dealers and Garage Squad.

I did laugh when motorend came out with a paid app to watch the shows. Ummm Guys? Most of the shows on your channel only have 8 episodes. That you rerun to death.

788 Court of Federal Claims, which is where these federal contract claims are heard.

Amazon also wants to depose the president. The whole thing is a joke. They had Pentagon insiders that were basically rigging the contract for Amazon to win.

Posted by: Hesco Gypsy at February 14, 2020 07:42 AM (53pVB)

789 Compare and contrast yesteryear with today. Then? Run a show like M.A.S.H. Have a guy on there who wants out of the Army so badly, he's trying to get a Section 8 discharge...by acting crazy. The act, of course, being dressing as a woman. Because it's crazy. Today? The SJWs would burn the studio down.

793 Had someone prosecuted these people back in 2017, they'd have seen it wouldn't pay. Instead the GOPe decided that "the institutions" and political comity, which doesn't exist anywhere but in their deluded brains, must be preserved. And appointees like Huber threw a bucket of white enamel over Hillary, while Rosenstein threw Trump to Mueller's dogs.
I know many expect prosecutions "any fucking day now", but I will believe it if I see it. I don't think "election year" indictments will be seen by many as anything more than a ploy and will be spun accordingly. The time to do it was 2017-18, when St Huber was busy fixing life for the Clintons and Sessions was doing shit.

796 By the way, Judge Patricia Campbell Smith, Obama appointee, is the same one who ruled that during the 2013 Government Shutdown, federal employees could sue the government for damages. Total hack.

797 All right. Time to do stuff...

798 Frankly, I don't like the idea of the Pentagon putting data on the cloud/in the hands of Amazon OR Microsoft.

Posted by: Mr. Peebles at February 14, 2020 07:46 AM (oVJmc)

799 Obama FBI was back channel feeding info to Steele.

A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureaus most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers.

So this will continue and even escalate. Rewarded behavior is repeated behavior. And crime without consequences leads to bigger and better crime. Why should they even try to hide it.
