The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

Hey, remember the riots that erupted in Washington DC back in January 2017 when Trump was first inaugurated? When the rioters marched, threw stuff at cops, vandalized buildings, set cars on fire, that sort of thing? Remember that?

Then they arrested what, 100, 200 violent protesters. And you remember what happened next, don't you? Sure you do.

All of the charges against everyone who was arrested were dropped.

And then on January 6th of this year, during a (mostly) peaceful protest, a couple of hundred idiots got into one of the capitol buildings, some broke in, some were let in by the police with whom they took selfies, scared some congresswomen who weren't actually there, and sat in Nancy Pelosi's chair.

Then rhey arrested, again, 100, 200 protesters. So what's going to happen now? Do you think the charges are going to be dropped.

Nope. They're throwing the book at them:

...American supporters of Donald Trump are being rounded up, imprisoned, transported to the nation’s capital, and likely bankrupted over relatively minor crimes to stoke the narrative that an “insurrection” occurred last month.

More than 200 people have been charged so far; the FBI has described its effort as a “24/7, full bore extensive operation” and warned that agents from its 56 field offices will be fully engaged.

“The scope and scale of these investigations . . . is really unprecedented not only in FBI history but in DOJ history,” acting Attorney General Michael Sherwin said during a press conference on January 12.

Read the whole article. But not if you already have high blood pressure. It's absolutely infuriating. The inconsistent and patently unequal enforcement of the law is another symptom of the systemic corruption wrought by the Deep State. Now I have to remember that the people who are doing the enforcing now are different than the ones who were around in 2017. It's a whole new regime. And this new crowd believes that the purpose of the law is not primarily to keep civil order, but is a weapon to be used against your political enemies.

So what should the yahoos who broke in should actually be charged with? Trespassing mostly, and then vandalism for those that damaged property. But no, for the past month, the Democrats have been throwing hissy fits about how it was "an attempt to overthrow the government", an "insurrection", and a "coup." That's the narrative they have to establish in order to justify their draconian prosecution and imprisonment without bail for the offenders.

I think Donald Trump needs to step here and be a mensch. Because he's kind of responsible for this. No, I don't mean that he incited the riot. He never said, as antifa/blm says all the time, "let's burn it down." But, as I said at the time, I just didn't see the point of staging this rally. Jan. 6th was well past the point where a protest could be expected to make a difference, if it ever could. I think what Trump needs to do is start a legal defense fund for those being persecuted by the Biden administration DOJ. And he should prime the pump with a $2 or $3 million donation of his own money as a start so some competent legal counsel could be hired.

Because this is what's in store for the protestors they arrested:

“Some of the misdemeanors we’re filing, these are only the beginning, this is not the end,” Sherwin warned. “We’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy. Their only marching orders from me are to build sedition and conspiracy charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the Capitol, and these are significant charges that have felonies with prison terms of up to 20 years.”

The nakedly partisan nature of these prosecutions takes my breath away. Conspiracy? Sedition? Seriously? Those charges can't possibly be made to stick, can they? But then, we've just seen an election stolen in broad daylight, so I guess anything is possible.

And one more thing: Remember, during the Trump years, how the DOJ never did jack sh1t about anything? Of all the dirt and slimy tricks and hoaxes the Obama-era holdover crew threw at Trump, much of it blatantly illegal, there was not one prosecution? (Note to all of you who hated Barr from the very beginning and told me he would accomplish nothing. I had high hopes for Barr, but you were right and I was wrong.) McCabe and Brennan and Clapper and Comey and Clinton all should've been rotting in jail by now, or well on their way. But no. Not gonna happen. Because any time Trump wanted something done, the bureaucratic wheels all ground to a halt. But now, with Biden's minions running things, the prosecutorial machinery spun right up and is now just humming along. How many of Biden's EOs are going to get put on hold by some Hawaiian judge? All of the roadblocks they put in front of Trump, that he had to fight daily to get anything accomplished have just disappeared.

That's the most infuriating part of all.

Friday Who Dis: The imdb bio for Millie Perkins is only a few sentences. I know she did some fashion modelling before taking up acting, The Diary of Anne Frank was actually her first movie, and she was married to Dean Stockwell for awhile. She also starred in the 1968 cult classic Wild in the Streets with James Dean lookalike Christopher Jones, whose life was, to put it mildly, erratic and troubled. He died of gall bladder cancer in 2014.

54 I saw an article about the so-called "occupation" of the capitol. It made the salient point that if the people there had been serious about taking it, they'd still have it, because there were something like 400,000 people in the area at the time.

Which is probably the real reason behind the complete freakout by the scum that inhabit that building.

There is no law. There is only the exercise of nearly absolute power. If the executors of that power shift their gaze to you, there is no way out. Their gaze is often arbitrary and random, but when it is targeted it is always targeted against the executors' opponents.

-
Jones' mother was sent to a mental hospital then, decades later . . .

Jones was cast by director David Lean in Ryan's Daughter (1970). . . . Unbeknownst to Jones, he was drugged during his filming of Ryan's Daughter by Sarah Miles, according to her first autobiography A Right Royal Bastard; this caused him to believe he was having a breakdown.

I guess Ms. Miles had a hell of a sense of humor.

One unexpected outcome of the GameStop thing is that it's now more widely known that it's cheap and easy to throw stuff up on electronic billboards, the ones that are pretty much just JumboTrons.

91 Now I have to remember that the people who are doing the enforcing now are different than the ones who were around in 2017. It's a whole new regime. And this new crowd believes that the purpose of the law is not primarily to keep civil order, but is a weapon to be used against your political enemies. -Go Rilla-

Not true. These are the same people enforcing now as then.
Then, it was their people doing the rioting and vandalism, so it's all good.
Just because the guy at the top changes doesn't mean anything, as the last four years have taught even the dimmest among us.

Agreed on Point 2. On Point 1, though, the very fact that the birds attacking in concert and with an on-off schedule made no sense was part of what made it so terrifying. Daphne du Maurier's original short story is like that too. Evan Hunter's screenplay got that right.

The ending is much more a literary kind of ending than your usual horror film, yes. DDM's short story ends very similarly, with no real resolution.

Which is probably the real reason behind the complete freakout by the scum that inhabit that building.

119 For the most part, prosecutors are filing to "send a message" but their message is that they have become instruments of oppression of unfavored groups.

Most of the lawyers and judges in the legal profession will really not like what comes next--if the rule of law is not restored. The usual response of oppressed people by elites is to find one elite as emperor to suppress the existing aristocracy. The excellent article on the 30 Tyrants by Lee Smith reminds us that oligarchies are inherently unstable and fall either through inter elite struggles for power (corporate versue marxists) or the people choosing a champion from the ruling class to go after the other oligarchs. See Guelphs and Ghibellines in Italy for example of these trends in a republic.

That wasn't really what I meant. It was stuff like TH going upstairs, alone, to investigate the bird sounds coming from the attic. Sure, that's plausible. Then, she peeks around the door, sees the birds, and STEPS INTO THE ROOM, closing the door behind her so as to give the birds maximum peckage. Also, seagulls punching holes through solid wood doors with their beaks.

The left's violence is always deemed necessary political speech, and must never be prosecuted.

The right's speech is always deemed outrageous and illegal violence, and must always be prosecuted to the max and even called sedition.

'I saw an article about the so-called "occupation" of the capitol. It made the salient point that if the people there had been serious about taking it, they'd still have it, because there were something like 400,000 people in the area at the time.

Which is probably the real reason behind the complete freakout by the scum that inhabit that building.'

If the Trump and his supporters were as the Left and Republicans in Congress characterized them, DC would be a smoking ruin by now with officeholders and bureaucrat bodies left for the buzzards. The lesson though is that they can be reached, Gamestop told Wall Street, you too can be touched, and Republicans rank and file have joined the left in disliking big corporations. They will pay.

So this is where the grifters from the Lincoln Project are going? One of the LP founders -- Jennifer Horn -- used to be NH GOP chair. She also co-founded the NH branch of the Log Cabin Republicans. Bailed on the Log Cabin because they supported Trump. Bailed on LP because one of the cofounders had a casting couch and liked little boys - which was known in 2004. Then it comes out she wanted $250k signing bonus, $40k a month, and other demands to secure her financially.If the NeverTrumpers want a different party -great. They are exact reason on why Trump was elected and why we despise them so. Good riddance.

The two had zero chemistry on screen because Jones was still smarting over the death of Sharon Tate. He outright didn't like Miles. The drugging was so they could get through the love scene.

It's a 3.5 hour long movie that should have been no more than 120 minutes. It's David Lean forgetting how to make the kind of movies he had become so good at making, like Brief Encounter, before he started making epics like Lawrence of Arabia.

What the hell's the matter with you?

Trump COULD and SHOULD have presidentially pardoned every single person at that rally. Blanket pardon. Specific pardons to the people represented in such-and-such photographs. Also pardons for Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. And a pardon for Michael Flynn, except four fucking years ago, followed by putting him in charge of ripping the guts out of the three-letter agencies. And a pardon for Roger Stone. And executive orders ending DACA, and controlling the border, and court-martials for usurpation of the powers of the executive for random Hawaiian judges attempting to prevent legitimate use of executive authority, and mass arrests of upper-level management at EVERY major media company for "giving aid and comfort to enemies of the United States" - that is to say, treason; and on, and on, and on.

Trump did not do any of this.

And now you think suggesting Trump can and should and will "step up" for his supporters is remotely sane and reasonable.

222 2) Young Suzanne Pleshette was teh hawt; far more than Tippi Hedren.
________________

Never understood why anybody thought Hedren was hot. She always seemed kind of generic and bland to me. Hitchcock probably lusted after her because she was kind of a bargain-basement version of Grace Kelly, whom Hitch also lusted after but who was clearly unobtainable for him.

223 Susie Pleshette also can be seen about 21 yrs old in old tv shows like Naked City.
For interesting background on The Birds watch the hbo movie The Girl about Hitchcock and Tippi and how he terrified her so her acting improved. Her little daughter , Melanie Griffith, was at the filming.

Andrei Tarkovsky filmed Stalker in a region with high levels of radiation in the USSR (because socialism/communism is more naturally inclined to be non-polluting). The cancer he died from is attributed to that production.

253 While I appreciate the goal of highlighting the hypocrisy of the Left, the pipeline/lithium mine meme is a bit of a false dichotomy. The pipeline is completed, and the earth disturbance has been "reclaimed" to nice meadow. The lithium mine appears to be an active open-pit mining operation of some kind. Might not even be an actual lithium mine, somebody may have just grabbed a stock photo of a generic "mine".

Lithium is different breed of cat amongst minerals that we mine. Tends not to be associated with nasty elements that can cause pollution from other sorts of mines, like sulfur, or arsenic, or lead. And abandoned lithium mine is more like an abandoned granite quarry, just a hole in the ground.

White Sands is in the middle of New Mexico. The Conqueror was filmed in a number of locations around St. George, UT, a town that was downwind of any number of Nevada Test Site above-ground nuclear tests.

For all that, I've never see anything more than anecdotal data concerning the death rate amongst The Conqueror cast and crew. It'd be interesting to see cancer illness/death rate data for them and also the St.George population as well.

Also, seagulls punching holes through solid wood doors with their beaks.

Good points. Though as I recall, she doesn't close the door so much as stagger back against it as they attack and it closes. As for the other, I don't know for sure, but Du Maurier mentioned the same thing, the gulls and owls pecking at the doors and wood slats over the cottage windows, and the protagonist thinks they would eventually break through.

Autopsy suggested that the location where Little House On the Prairie was shot was also contaminated which led to numerous cancer deaths including Michael Landon's.

Aren't most bird beaks unsuited for pecking wood? I'd imagine it'd cause serious injury to them.

There are two things you need to surmount this problem, time and persistence. Strive to be either:

not really brilliant, but then they might not have known at the time.

Posted by: SturmToddler at February 08, 2021 11:57 AM (8D42x)


White Sands is in the middle of New Mexico. The Conqueror was filmed in a number of locations around St. George, UT, a town that was downwind of any number of Nevada Test Site above-ground nuclear tests.

For all that, I've never see anything more than anecdotal data concerning the death rate amongst The Conqueror cast and crew. It'd be interesting to see cancer illness/death rate data for them and also the St.George population as well.

Of course, this was during an era when EVERYONE smoked Lucky Strikes like a Chinese coal fired power plant, so the cancer rate analysis would have to take that into account.

So please pray for complete healing for him and wisdom and skill for the doctors. Also rosasharon and kid had Covid. They are doing better than they were but she stills feels lousy and exhausted so please pray for her restoration.I didn't think she needed for the prayer list to come out on Wednesday for people to pray.

342 One thing that orgs that infiltrate others do is to make sure that the story is spread about how wide spread that infiltration is. Whether or not that's true or not.

It creates suspicion and doubt which is poison to any group that is conspiring to do things which the state finds dangerous.

There are ways to combat that but most of the orgs that say the FBI infiltrates are really laughably inept in the first place. Cause if they were good, the FBI wouldn't be able to infiltrate them.

I'm not worried, yet.

We ignored the lessons of Vivki's murder. Now we are locked in our homes without even a hope of an honest election.
