Saturday Morning Coffee Break

(H/T ibguy)

***


Good morning Morons. For many of us it was a short work week. And this coffee break couldn't happen quick enough.

Opine away or bloviate. Whatever trips your trigger. Just remember no running with sharp objects, don't pull the 'ettes hair and be nice to one another.

Have a great weekend!


PS: To the Morons in the metro areas where the lawlessness is taking place. Be safe and keep your head on a swivel.

She was so right about "stealth" nominees with little record.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter came out this morning criticizing President Bush's nomination of John Roberts arguing, "[W]e don't know much about John Roberts. Stealth nominees have never turned out to be a pleasant surprise for conservatives. Never. Not ever." Coulter explains, "And it makes no difference that conservatives in the White House are assuring us Roberts can be trusted. We got the exact same assurances from officials working for the last president Bush about David Hackett Souter."

91 In my sleepy town in Seacoast NH there is an effort to hold a "vigil" this coming Monday evening. Was originally billed as a protest, but quickly changed. Supposedly organized by a (leftist) student group but is actually driven by out-of-towner Massholes (even though one lives in ME, she is originally a Masshole).Since NH is still under a state lockdown where gatherings > 10 are not permitted -- just as our Catholic Bishop and priests --- this will be happening.

Would the riots have been worse if the local universities had their
student body population living on campus, instead of disbursed to their
parent's basements because of the Wu-Flu?

The Supreme Court is what I thought it was - 4 conservatives, 4 liberals, a Politician, Roberts, who stands in the middle like Judge Kennedy used to be, making sure each side gets what he thinks are the appropriate number of wins.

Trump needs to win, and there needs to be one more replacement before we actually can have a conservative Supreme Court. And of course, as soon as that happens, the votes will all be 6-3 because THEN Roberts will jump onto the winning side.

But have no doubts - RBG, Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayer will *always* vote exactly the way that Soros orders them to vote.

Regular judges issue warrants on the basis that the govt has shown probable cause to believe a CRIME has been committed.

FISA courts issue wiretap orders on the basis that the govt has shown someone is likely acting as a foreign agent.

These 2 things are not alike, & I don't want spies to wander my country doing their thing unhindered.

Regular judges aren't legally equipped to deal with suspected foreign espionage.

Zero & his corrupt deep staters misused & abused FISA. They lied to the FISA court regarding Flynn. The solution to that is not to throw out FISA altogether, unless you can suggest an alternative better than "regular judges issue a warrant." It isn't possible to establish probable cause that foreign agents have committed a CRIME. The idea is to keep them under surveillance, including especially their phone communications.

Possibly, but our Detroit police chief was on Tucker last night, and he said that in 1967 he was so alarmed by the riots that he didn't know what to do. He said his father forced him to join the police department if he wanted to make a change. I think a lot of police are good. A few are assholes and want a job where they get paid to be an asshole. The chief said his people know he has no problem getting rid of bad policemen.

Although I don't live in Detroit, I always say I'm from Detroit. I think a lot of people do. Besides that, when I'm out of town is I'm asked where I'm from, if I say Detroit, people know. If I say Birmingham, people think Alabama or England. Everybody's heard of Detroit!

The GOP is an ideologically incoherent pseudo party. I used to ask myself after the success of Reagan why they went back to unlikeable squishes and the answer is they hated Reagan and just waited him out to return to business as usual and make sure his ilk never happened again.

287 These 2 things are not alike, & I don't want spies to wander my country doing their thing unhindered.

Regular judges aren't legally equipped to deal with suspected foreign espionage.

Zero & his corrupt deep staters misused & abused FISA. They lied to the FISA court regarding Flynn. The solution to that is not to throw out FISA altogether, unless you can suggest an alternative better than "regular judges issue a warrant." It isn't possible to establish probable cause that foreign agents have committed a CRIME. The idea is to keep them under surveillance, including especially their phone communications.
Posted by: mnw at May 30, 2020 10:04 AM (Cssks)

This is what I used to believe, I understand the position completely. It was mine for a long time.

This is why I was wrong:

First, "spies" wander this country unchecked because it's a free and open country. They always have, they always will. We deal with it, we don't need to keep deep dark secrets like the ChiComs and Putin do. What kind of secrets do we need to keep? Apple i-phone specs? Apple and every other tech company we have has already handed everything they got to the ChiComs willingly.

Regular judges aren't equipped to deal with espionage? They were in WW2, they were throughout the cold war. There was never any need to say that we needed "Special" Courts for this, the opportunity was created out of fear because of 9/11, and the DeepState seized the opportunity to use that fear to massively increase their own power. That was wrong, absolutely wrong, for us to allow. They had the chance to stop 9/11 with all the tools they had, they just blew it. They'll blow it again, if something like that is threatened again, no matter what power we give them.

Every failure they make, they say MORE POWER! MORE POWER! But they don't need more power, that's just an excuse they make up for their own incompetence using the tools they already have. They don't need FISA - they *want* it, because it gives them more power over us, but they don't need it.

FISA is not a tool to "protect" us. That is just an excuse. It is a tool to Oppress us. That's why they want it so bad.

Tel me with a straight face that you are sure Roberts is not, and never has been, compromised.

I understand that you can make seemingly valid arguments for FISA, and you can claim that Constitutional safeguards will always be in place to enforce and protect our rights, Yet a cabal of "our" corrupt betters managed to totally subvert just such a system, and if they managed to destroy Trump, we would still be naively believing in the integrity of the FISA court, and courts in general!

We can do without any FISA, just like we did for decades/centuries before!

Plans never survive first contact with the enemy.

but the left's plans aren't really very good for them, if you sit back and look for it. They just wait for shit to happen somewhere and exploit it, that's all. But think about it - do you think it really helps them now that they have completely destroyed the economy of what was supposed to be one of their best run cities, Minneapolis? Minneapolis is taking an economic knockout blow that they're going to be fighting for the next 30 years, just like happened to Detroit in 1967. The left is standing in public, pouring gasoline on their own heads and setting themselves on fire, and thinking that is a good "plan".

388 Breath of fresh air perspective from rapper Lil Wayne:

https://bit.ly/2BeCADj

"I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. ... And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge," Wayne said during an IG Live chat with Fat Joe.

Wayne continued: "We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we're doing."

Elsewhere, Weezy gave his explanation on why he doesn't always speak publicly on these issues.

"What else am I gonna do after that?" he told Fat Joe. "Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain't about to do all that, then I ain't about to do nothing. I'll pray for ya."

And when asked by Joe if he was asserting that the follow-through is "more important" than a shirt or a public awareness message, Wayne shared more thoughts.

"It's actually learning about it," he said. "What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we're screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we're protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there's a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don't know. ...
We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain't true."

I don't think this was remotely coincidental. Sullivan has to reply by Monday and it will be a joke. We now have the Flynn transcripts and he was obviously framed. Even the most obtuse can see that now.

Thursday Rosenstein testifies, the only person who has been scheduled to testify so far, and immediately after both Graham at Judiciary and Johnson at Homeland Security have scheduled votes on subpoenas for the corrupt Obama crew. Coincidentally.

The Russia hoax is not only over it's about to blow up on the left and it just so happens we have spontaneous riots all over the country in blue cities?

The left has nothing left. They are running a senile, corrupt old white guy who is about to be pummeled with his own corruption scandal. All they have is anger, violence and chaos.

Kind of true in Da Swamp too. The dealers are mostly in the 'burbs. There is only one new car dealer, a former Olds dealer, left in the central part of the city. Others have moved way out to the east, still in the city proper, but essentially the suburbs. I can recall a Pontiac dealer who used to be on the edge of the French Quarter; long gone.

Horton the elephant could develop a better vaccine in his bathtub. The WHO is nothing but a fancy storefront for international bad actors, like Chy-naa and the Gates foundation.

When I was a kid we lived in an inner city neighborhood, where mob storefronts were well known as places to avoid. The mob would rent it, hang out a sign, put some junk in the window, like old shoes from the back of their closets, and never ever open the doors for business. It was nothing but a way to launder their cash from the real businesses, numbers rackets and prostitution and drugs and on and on.

I bought the property to put up a warehouse, but my daughter Jessica and her husband Jacob wanted the old restaurant that was there. We refurbished it and put in new equipment, and in the three years they've operated it, it's become a success. We built a new building at the back of the property to put in a catering kitchen.

Posted by: jwest at May 30, 2020 11:03 AM

On drive time, my sister lives in Troy and our favorite restaurant is Capital Grille at the Somerset mall. It takes us just over an hour to get there. All depends on traffic on 275.

Posted by: jwest at May 30, 2020 11:06 AM

I checked out your site and the Yelp page and everything looks excellent. Especially the omelettes. I'm a big egg dish person and always get omelettes whenever I go somewhere for breakfast or brunch. Lots of great reviews and sitting at 4+ stars. Nice job!

Depending on where I need to go Troy, could take 15 minutes, could take 30. Depends on traffic on Rochester Road or John R for my trip south. Or if something is right of I-75 exit, I can take that to get there a bit faster. I get pizza a lot at the PizzaPapalis in Troy --- which is right across from the Mall --- and it usually takes me about 20-30 minutes to get there taking Rochester and John R. But that's in previously normal rush hour traffic.

I imagine the drive times now, with hardly anyone on the road, would be much quicker. So probably closer to 90 mins --- instead of 2 hours --- for me to get to Jackson now.
