The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Oh look! Mitt Romney is a backstabbing, disloyal sleaze whose every waking moment is consumed by his desire to be the focus of all attention and to control everything around him, even if it means violating the political principles he clearly doesn't have! Anyone who thinks that Evan McMullin would be good for Utah and America is a buffoon or a clown, so Romney's motivations are far more sinister.

Why any GOP senator would be "baffled" by this news is puzzling. Romney has been conspicuous in his lack of loyalty, lack of political philosophy, and most of all lack of any understanding of the conservative movement in America.

GOP Senators Baffled By Mitt Romney's Ploy To Oust Mike Lee -- And Maybe Thwart A Majority

Romney claimed he couldn’t possibly endorse in the race because he is friends with both candidates, though it’s unclear why he thought his previously unannounced friendship with McMullin would be harmed by him supporting Republican incumbents and nominees, as all other Republican politicians do.

The Washington Post’s Henry Olsen scoffed at Romney’s line about friends. “That’s sweet, but party loyalty matters, too. It’s one thing to disagree within one’s own party; that’s what primaries are for. It’s another to say that one is going to stay out of a general election and essentially tell your own state’s voters that there’s no difference between your party’s nominee and someone backed by your party’s adversaries. If that’s friendship, Lee should start finding better friends,” he wrote in March.


Romney is the perfect distillation of the corporate/political elites who are busily running this once great country into the ground. His default assumption is that whatever he says will be accepted by the masses because he is so damned smart, so successful, so well connected that we peons have no right to question his decisions. Never mind that his reasons are base, craven and self-serving. Don't forget that Mitt Romney was actually proud of the catastrophic power grab in Massachusetts called "Romneycare." That should have been a tip-off that he was just a garden variety authoritarian masquerading as a principled conservative. He fooled me once, but never again.

Mike Lee deserves our support in his fight against McMullin and Romney, if for no other reason than to degrade Romney's power base and show the people of Utah what he is...a sleazy machine politician in it for the power and the glory, and certainly not someone who works for the betterment of his state and his country.

Ugh. No joke. I've loosened my purse strings a bit over the past six months and got some big-ticket stuff I don't need but do want. I might as well get something for my money before it can't buy anything at all. I'm maintaining my savings because I will get laid off some time in the next nine months, but if I want something, I'm getting it. No reason not to. If this keeps up, the money isn't go to be worth a damn and the stuff won't be available anyway.

17 So, from Mitch's perspective it's OK for Romney to work to get rid of Mike Lee (who's not all that anyway, to be honest), but it's not OK for anybody to try to get rid of Murkowski for Tshibaka?

38 I'd love to see the results of the same kind of digging into Mitt's business dealings and financials, as they've been doing with Trump's.

Trump keeps on turning up squeaky-kleen. N.Y. State's uber-political Attorney General couldn't come up with so much as a jaywalking charge against Trump, in spite of her every effort.

Conversely, I think Senator Rooftop Dog likely drags around a slime-trail of shady dealings, insider trading, son's corrupt Ukraine fuckery and all other manner of graft and corruption.

Honest question for any Mormon Horde. Does your church have any kind of sanction against those sully the reputation of your Church? 'Cause Mitt has *got* to be the Poster Boy of who you don't want on your Church's publicity posters!

The steel pipe itself has a wall of 4.1 centimeters (1.6 inches), and it's coated with another 6-11 cm of steel-reinforced concrete. Each section of the pipe weighs 11 tonnes, which goes to 24-25 tonnes after the concrete is applied.

45 In politics, second place is still very lucrative. Third place is nothing. The GOPe is not worried about being put in second by democrats, it's worried about being put in third by MAGA.

Therefore when Obama blames Bush for whatever, he continues the norms and traditions of not criticizing his successors. And when Trump does whatever, the endless saintly comity comes crashing down.

The R vs D struggle will take a backseat because its a bad joke.

Caveat - if you are in individual tech stocks, don't panic. Look at each company individually and decide if they will be able to survive this period and then thrive...or not. Only get out of those stocks which you think won't be able to do so...

ESPECIALLY if you don't need the money for awhile (5+ years)...don't just take huge paper losses when the paper can still recover if you have retirement planned decade(s) from now...

I've been at the stawk market awhile.
It's all about time horizons. Right now it's sheep shearing season. The things that will always save the markets is government tax take, insurance companies investment, and pension plan investments. All three fail without an ever increasing top. So they break the market to create buying opportunity for them and then pump new government money in to save the day. The next president will get the benefit.

101 No, no "and". Sure all kinds of influences. Point is, they're not in office unless the voters make it happen, or allow it to continue to happen (at the least).

Yeb! entered 2016 with a zillion bucks, and the entire machine behind him. He was trounced, easily, by an outsider who .... actually offered some prospect of action on important issues. Walker was a solid governor, one of the first targets of the uber-hysteria and lawlessness that is now standard against anyone who shows potential. He detonated instantly when he showed no seriousness on one of the few key issues.

All of this because of voters.

A slide detailing the findings from the Pentagon's 2020 Qualified Military Available Study shared with Military.com shows a 6% increase from the latest 2017 Department of Defense research that showed 71% of Americans would be ineligible for service.

"When considering youth disqualified for one reason alone, the most prevalent disqualification rates are overweight (11%), drug and alcohol abuse (8%), and medical/physical health (7%)," the study, which examined Americans between the ages of 17 and 24, read. The study was conducted by the Pentagon's office of personnel and readiness.

There are going to be at least a dozen "Trump killers" from the left side of the GOP to absorb up the hundreds of millions of dollars from GOPe donors in the lead up to the 2024 primary.

Liz Cheney has made herself top tier with her antics on the 1/6 committee and, in particular, her loss of a House primary seat.

A couple may last until Iowa starts the caucuses. The few that do won't last long after that, and the GOPe donors will be out a bare minimum of a quarter of a billion dollars for their effort.

Leveraged ETFs rarely perform as they should. Inverse ETFs are even worse. When you read the fine print it becomes more obvious as to why.

If you can snag one at the early onset of a major trend change in the underlying security(ies) you can do pretty well.

But the inverse products are, generally speaking, simply a grift mechanism for volatility sellers, with long buyers being the mark.

WWE is far more honest about what it is. Neither group likes folks actually in it "for real" instead of abiding by an agreed upon "script". But WWE can deal with the fact folks know it's an illusion; the Uniparty fears a "Red King" moment where enough people work it out and get angry to destroy the conditions that make their system viable.

Whether or not that moment comes before it's too late so salvage anything worth having...well, that's an open question.

325 There are going to be at least a dozen "Trump killers" from the left side of the GOP to absorb up the hundreds of millions of dollars from GOPe donors in the lead up to the 2024 primary.Liz Cheney has made herself top tier with her antics on the 1/6 committee and, in particular, her loss of a House primary seat.A couple may last until Iowa starts the caucuses. The few that do won't last long after that, and the GOPe donors will be out a bare minimum of a quarter of a billion dollars for their effort.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, searching for the Invisible


You might be right. However, (I'll get to Cheney in a second.) if someone like Romney announces he's running and the GOPe hacks cream their jeans again since now he has the "gravitas" of being a senator, there's a chance that will cut down the number of Trump killers as the GOPe falls in line (like it was demanded we do in 2012 for Romney by some here.)

Cheney has a campaign warchest that she has to burn so she wouldn't fall in there. She will get to burn through that warchest and write herself a paycheck along with family and others.

The pipeline is operated by Nord Stream, AG. That "company" is owned by Russia (Gazprom, 51%), with Germany and other European countries with minority stakes (the largest is 15.5%).

So are Nord Stream I & II "allies' critical infrastructure?" It's owned in majority by the enemy (Russia). It is critical for central Europe, and a German-incorporated firm operates it, but the "allies" don't own it. Isn't it more properly considered *Russian* critical infrastructure?

The GOPe will push one after another as the "Trump Killer". It will start sometime in March of next year at the latest. Whoever gets chosen first is going to raise a lot of money over about 6 months as the big, chosen name.

The donors will dismiss polls constantly until the debates start and they see that their wasted money isn't working. The problem will be the candidate, and we'll get our musical chairs of new candidates who suddenly see 7 figure dumps of cash into their campaigns and Super PACs, only to get replaced a fortnight later. Those won't come out of nowhere, but they'll have been running for months, buoyed by enough cash to keep them around just in case #1 doesn't work out.

“It’s time to stop the FBI from being the enforcer of a political party’s ideology,” says Ernie Tibaldi, a retired agent from San Francisco. “We need to re-establish the FBI as the apolitical and independent law enforcement entity that it always was.”

He expressed gratitude to Friend “for having the courage to stand up to the corruption that has taken over the leadership of the FBI.”

Many former agents hailed Friend, a SWAT team member in Florida, as a “hero” after he was punished for refusing to participate in what he regarded as unnecessarily heavy-handed SWAT raids over Jan. 6 misdemeanors.

382 The reason you use ketchup on a well done steak is because you've now ruined it and cooked any semblance of flavor out of it.

Interestingly, the Hunt brothers came up with ketchup as a sort of steak sauce.

The problem was that at the time, many people were flooding into cities looking for work and opportunity, but the food flow into cities was not up to the task. So stuff would come in late and barreled and not preserved well.

You had two choices: not eat, or eat um, slightly "off" steaks and people would pour sauces they called "ketchup" on the meat to disguise the spoiled flavor. The Hunts thought "man, there has to be something better than this crap we're using"

384 I agree, I am just saying it does sound improbably. Does not mean it did not happen. Certainly cheating occurred. Romney is a bitch

Romney--and McCain--hated Trump with a passion and the fact that Trump wasn't a warmonger who would help them get even richer was only part of it.
You see, both of these guys took a dive for Obama and The Deep State. They were probably promised a LOT for betraying their voters and both of them thought Trump was a joke who wouldn't need to take a dive because he was going to LOSE bigly to Hillary.
But Trump didn't lose--and if he was told to take a dive by the Deep State, he said FUCK YOU.
That's why Romney and the late McCain hated Trump with a white hot passion.
He did what they couldn't do---and he did it while giving the finger

A good friend in college liked his steaks cooked like shoe leather. We all liked them just shown the fire and they were good to eat.

393 It's amusing to see Philly communists claiming that election fraud isn't possible, not no way, not no how, when they have at least two election judges serving prison time for election fraud right now.

(they didn't cheat for Republicans, of course... they cheated for one communist faction against a different communist faction, and the other communist faction cheated harder).

431 334. The preceding comment from NATO: The damage to the Nordstream 1 and Nordstream 2 pipelines in international waters in the Baltic Sea is of deep concern. All currently available information indicates that this is the result of deliberate, reckless, and irresponsible acts of sabotage. These leaks are causing risks to shipping and substantial environmental damage. We support the investigations underway to determine the origin of the damage.

I see your point (you're always on point) as they are Russian property but the preceding comment is needed (and I should have included it) to clarify NATO's 'concern' for international shipping and substantial environment damage.
