The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"Attorney General Letitia James openly campaigned on the policy of 'Get and Destroy Trump. This political attack on me, my family, and my great company is her despicable attempt to fulfill that cynical, and very corrupt promise. James developed a political platform and made a career out of maliciously attacking me and my business before she was even elected, or reviewed one of the millions of pages of documents we willingly produced," President Donald J. Trump

Quote II

"I think it's a concern it's just fallen out of the sky. If it landed on your house it would make a hell of a mess," Australian Jock Wallace

Quote III

“A few minutes ago, I looked back across 5,500 years of human history, and so far, every single human pregnancy has been biological female,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)

Secret Police stories. I don't know what is true, what is false or what contains a kernel of truth. Interesting reads all of them..........


  • FBI Had Rat Near Trump That Led to Mar-A-Lago Raid

  • The FBI Raids Mar-a-Lago: What We Know - The Biden regime wants to arrest Trump for having boxes of White House souvenirs the federal government mailed to him in 2020

  • President Trump kept 15 boxes of memorabilia from his first term in the White House in a basement storage room.

    According to Miranda Devine:

    The boxes contain documents and mementos from Trump’s presidency, reportedly including letters from Barack Obama and Kim Jong Un, and other correspondence with world leaders.

    A legal source said that the boxes had been packed up by the General Services Administration and shipped to Mar-a-Lago when Trump left office in January 2020.

    That’s right, folks: the federal government itself (GSA) had collected and shipped these boxes of signed autographs and keepsakes to President Trump in January.


  • Judge Orders Department of Justice to Respond to Requests to Unseal FBI’s Trump Warrant
  • Do you remember when the appearance of impropriety meant something? Christopher Wray is a worthless piece of pond scum sucking weasel. I imagine I'll be audited and my home attacked by 30 FBI agents while I sleep, ala Roger Stone.

    Paul Blart, Mall IRS Cop. I'm sure this IRS announcement will be bring the brightest and compassionate. Just fvcking kidding.

    IRS Seeking To Hire Agents To Carry Firearms And Be Ready To Use Deadly Force
    The law enforcement branch of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) posted an advertisement for a job where special agents will be required to "carry a firearm" and "be willing to use deadly force" during "dangerous assignments."

    How many Morons helped clean up Kentucky's beautiful highways?

    Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Hundreds of beer cans spilled onto a highway median when a truck carrying a load of Bud Light overturned on a ramp.

    Louisville Metro Police said the truck overturned about 8:50 a.m. Wednesday while traveling on the Interstate 71 ramp to the Gene Snyder Freeway.

    Maybe Chocolate Jesus was onto something about surgeons and their bottom line. Children’s Hospital Promotes ‘Gender-Affirming’ Hysterectomies, Sex Change Surgeries

    Boston Children’s Hospital posted a video promoting hysterectomies as a form of “gender-affirming” medical care, along with several other clips explaining vaginoplasty, facial feminization surgery and other medical treatments they offer.

    The term “gender-affirming care” refers to sex change treatments to help people with gender dysphoria to present as the opposite sex, including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgeries. The video featured a doctor describing hysterectomies — the surgical removal of the uterus — as a form of “gender-affirming” treatment while smiling as upbeat music played in the background.


    Sick, twisted and demented.

    I'm a firm believer in private property rights. If you can't go out for dinner and leave your cell phone behind. Tough nuggies.

    Touch it. Turn it. Buy it. Charge it. Lock it. Unlock. Snap. Text. Scroll. Scroll. Scroll. Like. Reply. Share. Scroll some more. Purchase. Email. Log in. Tweet. Message. Call. Tap. Unplug.

    Silence. Check how much time has passed, and it’s already close to midnight. Your undrunk tea sits next to you, and you wonder what kind of whirlpool your mind has been trapped in for the past 5 hours; the constantly updating wonderland of nightmarish proportion. It’s addictive. It’s connective. It’s distracting. And many places have had enough of the side effects that smartphones bring along with them.

    One such place is the recently established Italian restaurant called Caterina’s in Fort Worth, Texas, run by chef Tim Love. All guests will be required to leave their phones with the hostess or host at their arrival, as well as to follow a dress code. While some have praised such a notion, others have been noting failings in the philosophy. Let’s dive into it!

    I feel sorry for the kid. But the Custodian is a Genius Award Winner.

    HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Ohio —
    A six-year-old Butler County boy was caught drinking alcohol, not once but twice in two different locations on the same night.

    Victoria Hampton, 26, of Hanover Township, was arrested and charged with child endangering and contributing to the delinquency of a child. Court records state the child was in her care. It's not clear if she is the child's mother.

    Definitely not the way Juan Marichal would have handled the situation. Tonight's Feel Good Story of the Day. Part 2.

    A terrifying on-field injury turned into a genuine display of sportsmanship at the 2022 Little League World Series in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

    The incident unfolded when Oklahoma hitter Isaiah Jarvis stepped up to the plate but was unexpectedly hit in the head by a hard pitch. Kaiden Shelton of Texas East was visibly shaken when he realized he had struck Jarvis with the full force of the ball. The pitch seemed to hit Jarvis in the earflap with such impact that it knocked off his helmet and sent it tumbling to the ground. Moments later, Jarvis and Shelton shared an emotional embrace demonstrating exceptional sportsmanship and forgiveness that was viewed over 17 million times online.

    Great Idea!!! Tim Love has run a number of fine restaurants in the DFW area over the years, notably in the Fort Worth Stockyard district; I've been to a few and the food is always worthy of a 5 star chef. Lonesome Dove Western Bistro is one of the more famous ones, but he owns a lot.

Why isn't just like the Steele Dossier, where the FBI and DOJ just made up stories and made up people who didn't exist, just to justify the illegal shit they were doing? And no one *ever* asks them to prove that what they say is actually true.

    88 They needed a "mole" story to give credence to the "urgency, get it before they destroy it" BS. But seems likely Trump still has moles that would take a payment to undercut him. (Jarvanka, probably not a mole, but they are liberals that will influence him the wrong way ... as Ivanka allegedly did with scarf "lady" -- those cocktail parties are very important to Ivanka, and Trump really wants to make his little girl happy)

    If I understand it right, the theory circulating in some circles is that Trump (or somebody) suspected someone in his inner circle was a mole, and decided to flush them out by telling them there was something illicit in his safe when there actually wasn't.

    I have many favorite Tull pieces, but my fave might be Thick as a Brick. Tull did it intentionally to mess with the studios who demanded they do songs that could fit into a 3 minute or so time slot on the radio. Thick as a Brick is *one* song that lasts all the way through both 30 minute sides on the original LP.

    That was back when Album FM stations were a thing. You had to listen to the entire album to listen to the whole song.

    True story....

    I took a job with the US Treasury, Bureau of the Public Debt in West Virginia back in 1990. The Bureau of the Public Debt has nothing to do with taxes or collecting money from the public. It's responsible for various Treasury "instruments", bonds and the like that are actually owed to the public. Thus... "public debt." What the feds owe to the public. Got it?

    So, I'm on the job doing IT shit and I get this cool navy blue wind breaker with "Treasury" in gold lettering on the back. I don't think, wear it while out looking for a place to live and nearly get my head blown off. Back road, woods, gravel, dirt, etc. Great location, quiet. But the neighbors are cra-cra. My bad.

    Eric Idle was by far the best (and smartest) businessman out of all of them. The rest accepted that the Monty Python thing was dead when it broke up in the 80's, but Eric Idle kept pushing a crazy idea that they could turn Holy Grail into a stage musical he called Spamalot, and he got the rest of them to license him to it for a share of the profits.

    I saw an interview with John Cleese , and he said "I thought the idea was absolutely bonkers and had no chance of success, but I figured why not. And then we all ended up making more money off that then any of us had made off everything we'd done in the rest of our lives, all put together."

    On the first leg of our return flight, the woman seated next to my inoffensive and tired wife started bitching at her. I turned to that woman and told her to stop that in a quiet command voice.

    Then she went mad. She jumped up, demanded a new seat, and was ranting and raving. Drama level went to Plaid 17.

    When reseated, the guy next to her told her calmly to please behave, and she went berserk again.

    We had to return to the terminal to get more fuel. Some passengers got off the plane, to not return. I am not sure she was one of them. But none of the luggage was unloaded. The male Flight Attendant told me he had never seen something like it in his years of flying, and he needed a Xanax.

    We did make our connecting flight, thanks to a formerly long layover.

    Good times. Good times.

    So to me it's looking like there was no Big Plan, NO three dimensional chess being played; some GS-14 came up with the idea because TRUMP IS BAD MAN!!! and it percolated up the chain and no one said "No! Bad Idea!!" Until it got to Wray, and he just said "WTF!!! YOLO!!!"

    Then don't. It appeals to me because no one in the restaurant would be on a phone, people would be interacting with each other, it would provide an atypical dining out experience in today's culture. And a dress code feels like a call back to a more civilized age.

    370 349 Why is the restaurant great? I understand they should be able to set their own rules but that doesn't make them great. And you are correct. I wouldn't go there.

    You're absolutely correct, rules don't make a restaurant great. Tim Love's restaurants are great because he's one of the best American chefs (and restaurant owners) working today - I've been to a couple of his places; the food prepared there is on a whole different level than what you get in an ordinary 'good" restaurant. yeah, I'm a fanboy of his.

    What did that consist of, whig?

    Pre-war France is part of my infinite knowledge gap. Intermittently reading Shirer's "The Collapse of the Third Republic" (in between or as breaks from other tomes), so getting some basis in the social/political dysfunction, but still baby steps in understanding.

    451 Back up a second - why do any of us believe that there even was a mole? Because the FBI says so? Why isn't just like the Steele Dossier, where the FBI and DOJ just made up stories and made up people who didn't exist, just to justify the illegal shit they were doing? And no one *ever* asks them to prove that what they say is actually true.

    I think it's most likely that the "mole" was Wray's secretary in the next room, calling in with a thick handkerchief over her mouth.

    512 450, one side was the senior military and church versus the socialist and communist expressed through labor unions. The Dreyfus Affair sickened the intelligentsia, the military and church became infected again with anti semitism and the left had quite a few Jews in leadership. Both sides would rather lose to an external enemy such as Germany or Russia than see the other faction win. One third was living the yolo lifestyle. The huge number of casualties in WWI was the bat that each faction used to beat the other with. Plus, the French army in the trenches damn near broke out into mutiny just before the US entered. The endless pointless slaughter got to the French men on the front lines.

    622 545, rhomboid, sorry am on phone icing back. The French society tore itself apart again and again basically repeatedly changing between a republic and a king/emperor. The Third Republic succeeded for a bit longer due to Napoleon III antipathy after losing the Franco Prussian War decisively. The conservatives in French society hated the Republicans due to excesses in the original Revolution and the subsequent embrace of increasingly radical politics by the left based in part on those ideals. The Republicans hated the remnants of the ancien regime and feared their control of the military and church. Hatred of Germany united both factions until Dreyfuss Affair occurred with both sides pointing the finger at each other.

    657 578, deGaulle preventing France from going commie is one of the reasons Churchill supported him during WWII. FDR and State Dept loathed deGaulle and tried to replace him with a stiff Henri Giraud. DeGaulle though had sharp elbows and the support of the non fascists right in France and elsewhere.

    Upgrading software on a giant system with huge databases like the IRS is a nightmare. Last I heard they still were recording data onto giant media and physically transferring it across the country.

    However, the chances are that there is no move to upgrade because some senior management with lots of pull don't want to have to learn something new and they haven't gotten enough retirement points to quit just yet.
    Be glad, because at the moment they will probably put it "on the cloud" with a contractor who is actually owned by the PLA

    684 blake when some friends and I took the bus from the capital of Asmara down (several thousand feet of elevation) to the Red Coast port of Massawa (in September), believe the temperature delta was 30 degrees (75 to 105), but it was the humidity difference that really packed a wallop. Friend had a mountaineering watch that had all the basic weather sensors. Think it was 95% RH. We laughed as got off the bus, at the conditions, which felt like you had to be inside some industrial facility.

    We napped in the AC hotel room after a walk around the deserted (siesta, duh) town, including the sadly war-damaged port with its Ottoman buildings built from coral block. When we got up for dinner after dark, we walked out into a different universe - crowded, busy, boisterous, movies playing on the sides of buildings, cafes, guys walking out of the mosque to have a beer (yes).

It's laughable compared to the Persian Gulf or Hanoi in June or DC, but it's simply unacceptable here, where it's almost always dry. Last summer I recall we had less than 2 total weeks of this, this time it's going on 3 weeks today. Of course prior to that was 3-4 months (it all blends together) of ridiculously perfect pleasant weather, so.

    I remember the first time I experienced real humidity. Long ago. Stepping outside National Airport in DC to get a cab, probably late August. I laughed ("so THIS is what all the housemates from NJ and PA and NY are talking about").

    The term for that is threadjacking.

    Posted by: AmericanKestrel at August 11, 2022 12:25 AM (K0jo2)

    It was not so much what he did, I think, as how he did it. 'Thread-jacking' was the usual charge- which I think is silly. We all do it all the time. Joe Mannix or anyone does it when they post busty pics. There are tons of other examples.

    It is HOW he did it, and how he responded to the cobs that got him.

    I like the way you put that, and agree. One can make a very good case that *every* political fight the anglosphere has had for the last 350 years has just been a rehashing of the ideas that got let loose in the conflicts of the 1640's; from this distance it's hard to appreciate just how radical the people of that time really were. On the amazingly thoughtful side, there were already people calling for a bicameral legislature with an elected executive at the time. Then there were the Levelers, who were not much different from the later Bolsheviks. And then there were those who thought all social conventions should be thrown out and everyone should have sex with everyone all the time. Well, Cromwell ended that bunch when he took over, by killing them all.

    814 Something happened at the russki naval air station in Crimea, and a good portion of their attack aircraft got blowed up or bbq'd. Last I checked (and I didn't check very aggressively), exactly what happened is a bit of a mystery. Russian talk radio predictably is abuzz with talk of fifth columnists and sabotage, since apparently there's no video evidence of a missile attack (and the results seem far too great for that sort of attack). And because russki talk radio loves itself some fifth columnist drama.

    Western analysts I check remain mostly cheerleaders with little interesting to say (though some tentatively venture into forbidden territory by alluding to the population disparity and Ukraine's lack of bodies for a prolonged slog).

    The homogeneity impulse drives me nuts. Now it's always risky to lean too much on stereotypes, but it does seem like it's those from Central or Northern European ancestry who seem to love homogeneity. (ignore the Chinese who might as well be a nation of one billion clones) My wife and I have discusses, and having some of that ancestry ourselves, way too many of them still think like peasants, act like peasants, and dress like peasants. You know who loves to stand out, to make a big splash, to be real individuals? For all the faults, god love 'em, it's the Italians. Even when they do stupid things, they look damn good while doing it.

    can't stop without mentioning the British, who on the surface appear to worship conformity - and then just under the surface everybody is fuggin' nuts.

    844 814, rhomboid, think instapundit had a link to a respected Russian military commentator from a Russian think tank that was pretty frank about the strengths and weaknesses of each side.

    Basically, he argued the Russians were short of infantry with far too much concentration on artillery and armor. The Ukes had the flaws of ill trained infantry and insufficient artillery and armor integration. So the ukes can only operate at the tactical level on the ground while the Russians lack the infantry to expand their advances into breakouts.

    My only experience with New Orleans was driving through it at 8:00 A.M. on a Sunday morning. I was a trainee with Sperry-Sun Drilling services, and we were a carload of four guys headed for the helicopter base at Venice, LA, out on the birds-foot delta of the Mississippi. I was "out of area" and not supposed to be driving, but the in-area guys were all dead tired, and could not keep their eyes open, so somewhere on I-10, it fell to me to be wheelman. I missed an exit, and got off somewhere in downtown NO, and there were hookers on the street corners at 0800, Sunday.

    860 Russians don't really need breakthroughs, apart from western Donetsk oblast and any artillery buffer cordon they plan to take. They've already got what they want - territorially - and probably then some (Kherson's nice to have but isn't a political "must" in Russia as the "ethnic" Russian areas are, though it appears Kherson's not generally too upset about Russian troops kicking out Kiev's people). Non-territorially, of course, Moscow will never have what it wants, which is a neutral/Finlandized-ish Ukraine. That was a long-shot only available if the quick political/decapitation victory had worked out.

    862 842, Tom, I think the urge to conformity is biological but how it is expressed is culture. You can conform on the idea of something like the rule of law or fair elections and both of those still reverberate among the general us population. It is basically the elites seeking to do those in to reach their new aristocracy of merit. The old aristos were basically descendants of courtiers or robber barons/warriors. These elites believe themselves to be smarter, more moral, and wiser than the general population and they look longingly at China as the future just as the Soviets were in the past. So they justify making the rule of law depend on who, whom. And elections should never let the silly commoners get what the morally repulsive and backward thinking commoners selfishly want.

    That is why I reject despair about the US today. The left has never learned that culture matters and people as a result are not widgets. Roughly 15 to 20 percent of people in the West are remarkably widgetlike in the terms of npc types with a culture of homogeneity uber alles. The rest of the world is not flat.

    882 860 rhomboid, the commentator did not foresee a quick peace btw and argued that Vlad would have to resort to conscription at some point.

    He also laughed a bit about Russians taking umbrage about the West supplying and testing arms in Ukraine by saying we, the Russians, did the same thing in Syria and elsewhere. Pretty even handed analysis. The question though is what are the Russians and Ukrainians willing to settle between them. The greater the toll and justifications to the populations, the harder it becomes to end it. Saddam recognized his stroke against Iran failed but then the Iranians went holy war on them. Result, stagnant trench warfare.

Doubtful Ukraine's primitive, corrupt, and heavily strained political and social situation will support indefinite hot war, or even the 2014-2022 terror/harassment war in the east. Even with massive western aid. They'll make a deal eventually, though it won't have to include the big issue (western military alignment).

My guess is something like Syrian civil war slo motion style conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Iran and Iraq settled into that with periodic unsuccessful offensives on both sides.

    The law enforcement branch of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) posted an advertisement for a job where special agents will be required to "carry a firearm" and "be willing to use deadly force" during "dangerous assignments."

    With quick dispatch I ended the lives of Mr and Mrs Willard. Their home office expense included a small bathroom, that while not in office use, was several times used by a visiting grandchild. I amended their returns and while visiting their elder daughter got the over refund of $112.52 quickly returned the Treasury via Apple Pay Card.

    1017 I had settled on ten knowing that even that was too many, but I figured that ten would at least be palatable for most Americans—high enough to allow for most gatherings of immediate family but not enough for large dinner parties and, critically, large weddings, birthday parties, and other mass social events. … Similarly, if I pushed for zero (which was actually what I wanted and what was required), this would have been interpreted as a “lockdown”—the perception we were all working so hard to avoid.
