Quick Hits 2

Oberlin "University" has sought to avoid paying the family of bakers it viciously defamed and damaged the business of through endless frivolous appeals, but the Ohio Supreme Court just put paid to that hustle, refusing to accept jurisdiction of their latest appeal.

That's it. It's over. The bakers can now collect their $36 million, even though Oberlin spitefully waited them out long enough to see a couple of them die before they were paid for the abuse they suffered.

As Legal Insurrection mentions, Oberlin does have one last appeal left -- to the Supreme Court of the United States. But the Supreme Court is unlikely to accept a pretty rinky-dink defamation case which doesn't really implicate any constitutional issues, unless Oberlin wants to straight-up claim that lying about someone to call him a "racist" can't be defamation, because... lying about racism is Super-Protected Speech because leftwingers really really really like doing it.

Monica Lewinsky claims she wants us all to forget her tawdry cigar-disappearing magic act with Bill Clinton, but I don't believe her. She never stops mentioning it.

I think what she really wants is for us to embrace it as a A Love That Was Perfect and Unspoiled and Which Will Last Forever. She just wants us to stop talking about "the bad parts."

Speaking of low-IQ adulterers:

An Australian nightclub imposes a "No Checking Out the Opposite Sex" policy.


A nightclub in Sydney, Australia, has banned staring at other patrons, threatening violators with a call to law enforcement.

Club 77 published Its new safety and harassment policy on its site, which explicitly states that patrons must get consent to stare "at someone from afar." To enforce this new policy, the club will designate one security guard as a "safety officer" every night, identifiable by a pink high-visibility vest, the policy states.

The club developed the new rule in the hopes of remaining a "safe space" after it had recently "attracted some people who do not share our values and ethics when it comes to club culture," according to the New York Post. Violators will have the police called on them for "harassment," according to the statement.

...

Others were less enthused, with one writing "RIP to social interaction. Everything is becoming social media IRL." Another commented, "never before has the term go woke go broke been more appropriate."


"Street takeovers" are now common in Chicago, as the forces of barbarism and chaos no longer fear the forces of law and civilization.

The deranged pervert, who by the way went looking to be put on the payroll of the Chinese Communist Party, seems to be threatening the "semi-fascists" with military weaponry again:

You more than anyone should know it's very possible to beat F-15s, you nasty old r@pist and Daughter-Showerer:

"Scientific" American, attempting to claim that our understanding of the "two-sex model" of human sexuality is actually a recent confabulation: Before the "late eighteenth century," "Western science" thought there was only one sex. It was only in the late nineteenth century they discovered women existed.


Hey guys -- the Bible speaks of their being men and women. So this will be a case where they claim "science" disproves "the mysticism and superstition of the Bible," again.

Good rant about all of Fauci's -- I mean, "Science's" -- lies and mistakes by Megyn Kelly.

Europe is going to have a pre-Industrial-Revolution winter thanks to green politics and the war in Ukraine.

And they're about to find out that "global cooling" -- winter -- is much deadlier than any warming they get off to Davos to fuss over.

45 Oberlin has lied so long and so repeatedly that it's easy for many, even on our side, to forget exactly what this award was before. The shoplifting case at the store and subsequent protest was the Trigger that sent things into motion; but that was NOT what the actual case was focused on! (Oberlin has always tried to say it was and that this was some free speech case)

No; the award was because the Gibson's were able to present hard evidence that after all of that was over, the Oberlin Administration surreptitiously contacted all of the Gibsen's suppliers and business associates and tried to put Gibsens out of business, for no good reason except for revenge. THAT is what Oberlin was found liable for.

54 Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet leader who oversaw detente with the West, the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, has died in a Moscow hospital at the age of 91.

Gorbachev’s policy of “glasnost” towards the West, underpinned by summits with US President Ronald Reagan to curb the nuclear arms race, paved the way for the end of the Cold War, made him one of the most influential figures of the late 20th century. At home, however, his move to decentralise the Soviet economy, a strategy know as “perestroika”, precipitated an economic collapse that hastened the end of the Soviet Union.

Technically, the bishop who should do so would be his proper pastor, which is either Abp Gregory of DC, or the Bishop of wherever his his non-presidential Home is. It was only a few months ago that Abp Cordelione of San Francisco publicly confronted Pelosi about her anti Catholic beliefs and declared she was not to receive communion any more in the diocese.

Gregory on the other hand has already said that he's not going to deny communion to any politician because in pastoral matters he doesn't want "to bring a gun to the negotiating table."

Oh, the base *perimeters* might be fortified to hold off an attack for a while. But U.S. bases depend mightily on a huge volume of daily civilian labor to merely operate. Chow halls, engineers, DoD cops, and much etc., besides. Those folks mostly aren't coming to work, not wanting to suffer the wrath of their communities. Fuel deliveries for the flightline? Nope.

And, on a more serious note, my estimate is: If for whatever reason our government decides to declare war on American citizens, I think they lose 25% of support personnel, because they refuse to show up, and, most likely, that number approaches 50% within days.

Back in the late 70's I worked for a couple who'd recently relocated to the small town I lived in. I was friends with their son and daughter, visited at their home, and they were friends with my dad. I recently dug around to see if I could locate any of the family and I ran across the most startling info: the man I worked for (and is now deceased) was the subject of a 1962 book entitled: The Communist Party's Cold War Against Congressional Investigation of Subversion, which was a recap of the undercover work he did for Joe McCarthy, then the owner of a private investigation agency prior to his employ at the FBI. He infiltrated the Communist Party in LA and ended up working for the FBI. It's a fascinating read, a transcript of his testimony. Needless to say, I was shocked to discover this mild mannered old man I'd worked for for several years was a spy. Here's a link to the part of the book containing his testimony of the work he did:

China Is Aggressively Reselling Russian Gas To Europe

Instead of being dependent on Russia for gas, Europe is now becoming dependent on Beijing instead for its energy - which is still Russian gas, only this time imported from China - which makes a mockery of US geopolitical ambitions to defend a liberal international order with its own energy exports.

Worse, while Europe could buy Russian LNG for price X, it instead has to pay 2X, 3X or more, just to virtue signal to the world that it won't fund Putin's regime, when in reality is is paying extra to both Xi and to Putin, who is collecting a premium price thanks to the overall market scarcity.

An F-15 isn't worth squat if it can't get off the ground fueled and loaded with munitions. If only 10-15% of ground support people refuse to do their job nearly half of the air force stays grounded, not to mention pilots who refuse to bomb Cities where they and their friends and families live.

Could take hours. Could take days. Moar holes = Moar time grounded. Make moar holes!

Unfortunately, for women it only lasted the one reign until, I'd imagine, they figured out that the monthly period was related to ovulation so men could go back to being selfish pigs again!!! Not that Worsley put it that way at all. [But I know she was thinking it!]

Reality has a way of smacking idiots in the head. The EU thought they can have their cake of Russia Sanctions without paying a cost. But now they decide they can pay double or more just to avoid backing down in public.

- Kash should start making police reports everyday against Strozek, that seems like a bigger threat than what they claim Trump did.

- Speaking of bigger threats, idiot Biden's threat to all the American people is again more of an incitement of violence than anything Trump ever did, and the Republicans better create a August 30th commission to look in to it for impeachment.

Iversen's response is, "Shoulda woulda coulda. Again...personal choice. I'm all for personal freedom. Live and let live...even if it leads to regret."

I think it depends on how it falls out. I kind of doubt this will be a CW1 with the big lead up and all of us backing into our respective corners hoping the things will not pop off.

Hope the Army is ready to convoy truckers on interstates, because out there in flyover country is probably would not be that hard to shut them down by a relative handful. You can thank Lady Byrd Johnson for providing abundant cover on our highways. 10 divisions are not going to be able to pacify a nation 10 times as big as Iraq unless they are deployed 24/7 till everything is over. In Iraq they rotated. Won't be able to do that.

You can't war game till you know the war aims. Joe Biden forgets that.

What makes you think that the troops of a nation that live on a series of island fortresses, and that are under constant threat by their much larger neighbor, are poorly trained?

How do ya know who's who ?
Posted by: JT at August 30, 2022 06:46 PM (T4tVD)

Hi JT - sadly - I have no idea myself. I am not even sure who is an 'ette and who is a moron - unless it's obvious to me. I have never been to a MoMe - and like LAsue - it's probably unlikely I'll ever get to one, as much as I would love it. So, I started these sketches as a goof on the fact that I knew no one and had no idea what anyone looked like - it was all in my imagination. The Horde seems to be okay with that for now - for the most part - its just one meaningless Moron's doodles.

I promise to take the whole thing down if someone gets offended - it was meant to just be light-hearted and I only started doing it on the hobby thread on the weekends because I have no hobbies anymore but work. But it might have run its course in that regard. You never want folks you love and respect to get the idea you're not doing something nice...

They. don't. likely. have. training. with. our. weapons. systems.

This was also true with the weapons we sent to Ukraine. The troops there were unfamiliar with the new systems and that made them less effective than US troops would have been.

And being outnumbered many many to one by the oppo forces made it even worse, of course.

He disliked cavalry, like any good infantryman. His disgust with reporters was legendary. Lol

France has taken a number of its nuke plants down for maintenance, and is now buying power from Germany to make up the difference, Germany is burning their Winter stock of LNG to supply it

Germany's Minister of the Economy is noted children’s book author Robert Habeck. who apparently knows nothing of fossil fuels.
