Yeah I know Walt and I regret supporting him. Do you feel the same way about Trump having an affair with a porn star 2 years after his soon was born?

Walt

Good job New York, Ala. thanks you.

"That’s right. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced in her State of the State address that Kimber, maker of handguns and bolt-action rifles, would be putting a little drawl, y’all, into their products. Kimber’s going to build a $38 million automated design, engineering and manufacturing facility that will employ 366 people. The doors will open and customers can expect Troy, Alabama markings on their guns in 2019."

The wheels of justice turn slowly.

law firm immediately patches callers through to Peter Comey’s direct line there.

DLA Piper is one of Hillary Clinton’s top ten all-time career campaign donors.

DLA Piper also does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. That’s right. In fact, when the Clinton Foundation scandal broke, it was DLA Piper that performed the 2015 audit on the Foundation, which was supposed to be an independent audit for the appearance of propriety.
Property records show that James Comey owns the mortgage on his brother Peter Comey’s house in Virginia. Therefore, James Comey had a direct financial relationship with a DLA Piper executive at the time he was investigating Clinton.

Winning!

he heavy-duty truck, at least in Chrysler’s case, was moved to Mexico in 2008. Ninety percent plus of what gets produced out of Mexico gets sold in the United States. I think this notion of making a car which has got nearly 100 percent utilization in the United States is a bit bizarre. I think it should have never been moved.

Last week, Fiat Chrysler announced that it was moving production of the Ram to Michigan, which it says will create thousands of jobs.
“Repatriation of the heavy-duty Ram was owed. We had to correct the mistake of 2008,” Marchionne said.
The Trump administration’s pro-business stance and the recently enacted tax cuts played an important role in the car company’s decision, stated Marchionne.
“We are working in an environment which is a lot more beneficial, that’s much more pro-business than it’s been in a long time. Tax reform is going to compensate some of the cost differential in building the car here, as opposed to building it in Mexico,” Marchionne said

Well, that Dossier with Trump romping with fine Russian hookers peeing on the bed never flew with me cause Trump is a germaphobe. Germaphobes don’t to that bodily fluid stuff with pleasure. They avoid it.

Looks like Trump goes after fine looking women. Guess he ain’t into banging women with large pendulous breasts. To each his own. Just the thought of Donald Trump never have drank one glass of alcohol or smoked a cig once in his life is kinda weird to me. Oh well, nobody is perfect, I reckon.

Drugs, free uninhibited sex, and rock-n-roll is our legacy. Unshackled and unchain. Whole lot of buggering going on out there. Disgusting. You know is really gross and disgusting? The image of my parents having sex. Yuck!

Yep. Heard they are moving truck production to Alabama of all places. Will create 2,500 jobs and who knows how many perferial jobs that will be created. Guess it’s Alabama’s reward for winning another title.

Remember when Obama mocked Trump about bringing back jobs? “What’s Trump going to do, wave a magic wand?” Well, that was not very Hope and Changey of Zerobama, was it? All Trump had to do was the exact opposite of what Obama’s guru Paul Krugman said to do. So simple. Trump makes it look too easy.

Remember when the Lamestream media mocked Trump when he dared to even campaign in Michigan? Waste of time, he hasn’t a prayer. CNN and MSNBC and the Huff-n-Puff Compost all laughed at the whole foolishness of such a silly notion. Campaigning in Michigan? Oh, that’s a good one. Trump made it look too easy.

Remember when they said crowd size does not matter? Hillary drawing 350, Trump selling athelic and music arena attendance records. Reminded me of when Grey Davis was talking to half filled school lunchrooms and Arnold was had them lined up stretching down the streets.

Apple payin 38 billion in taxes to bring money (capital) home. We will need a lot of capital for small businesses to take off as well as job growth.

What amazes me is after 8 years Obama said ISIS will never be decimated. Only took Maddog 10 months....after the chains from the previous administration where removed. Same with the economy. We were told anemic growth was the new normal. That was until Trump start taking the previous administration’s shackles off the economy.

Wonder what year two will look like? Trump makes it look too easy. He just needs a month to accomplish what others take years to do..without the luxury of his full team in place clicking on all cylinders.

Under the 'trump hasn't emboldened white supremacists" category -- according to a report by the Anti-defamantion League: In 2017 59% of hate crime murders were committed by white supremacists.. a 157% increase in the number of murders compared to 2016. In 2016 only 7 hate crime murders were committed by white supremacists. In 2017 that number rose to 18. Islamic extremists committed 9 murders in 2017. Over the past 10 years, right wing extremists have murdered 274 out of a total of 387 murders attributed to extremists in all categories. That is seventy-one percent of all hate crime murders. We really need to watch out for those damn jihadists from Muslim countries and spend billions of tax dollars ferreting them out and/or keeping them out of the country. Don't forget there were bad hombres on both sides in Charlottesville, right?

Agreement just before election required woman to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, people familiar with the matter say

A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former adult-film star a month before the 2016 election as part of an agreement that precluded her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter."

Oh Mr. Cross.

Finding a dead Islamic terrorist in our country is a lot better than ever finding a live one.

Hmmm. How many murders reported in Chicago this year? In Baltimore? Need to build way more prisons. Way more prisons. 13% of the population committing 54% of all the murders in the USA. I remember one year there were more killed just on our roads and highways than the total number of our boys killed in Nam.

Those hate crime murders are less than children dying each year drinking poison found under the sink. With that said, one American life is worth about 10,000 of those camel jockey goat humping bush rats.. I’d fly 10,000 miles to smoke a Camel.

Funny, the Left’s two hero’s are Bradley Manning and Bowe Bergdahl.

Great one, best of the week Walt. Yep, not very libertarian of him at all. Rather condescending of Puritain Pauly, I must say. Dissing hookers just feels so Victorian, so Ozzie and Harriet.

Gotta cut them some slack....or not. They are fighting for their lives. Trump smelled out McCain way back in the early primaries and Flake is gone, busy interviewing today for a gig at CNN. Nobody can go toe to toe with Trump. They just have got no one. Oh, the media is scrapping for all their worth, and even Punchy is swinging away. But nobody can go toe to toe with Trump. There will be a Wall. I will lay money on it. Chain migration is going to something that today’s folks won’t recognize. They pulled Chucky the Clown and sent out little Dickie Durbin.

Just a quick thought on the upcoming ICE fandango in the Bay Area.

I can see the sense in that it is part of an escalation between the state and federal government, the former wishing to essentially ignore immigration law, but I was thinking along different lines.

It seem to me that if the federal government really ramped up enforcement efforts in neighboring states, they could probably force movement into California. You might end up with a more efficient kind of Kesselschlacht once the illegal aliens are all in one place.

You do have to wonder if the next logical step in all of this is armed confrontation between federal agents and SFPD, although I suppose that the city police rank and file would be uninterested in carrying through the politics of their superiors.

@ 9:04 pm. Immigration raids in Frisco.

Probably Trump throwing out the first card on the table. Certainly got their attention and nothing they can do about it but prepare. “Hey everybody, you don’t have to answer any question ICE asks or let them in without seeiing a warrant. Here is the number to call for lawyers on the ready.” Dare him? Go ahead and dare him. Shut down the government? Triple dog dare ya. DACA ain’t nothing but hiding behind mother’s aprons and children. Easy fix. The real issue is immigration reform. Lefties are on the wrong side of every poll for awhile now when illegal immigration is put in the larger context.

Trump dropped that card on the table that reads ICE is going after 1,500 illegals they want in Frisco. Know where they live, where they work. Missed a hearing, repeat offender, gang bangers, and poor Luis who has been a model resident, community asset to boot. Family man. Wonder what he did? Sure would be a lot safer if we just could pick them up in jail. We can do this the easy way or the hard way. Go ahead, shut down the government.

Ok, so playing nice and breaking bread got derailed with “I’m telling mommie.” Had your change. Play ball! They will be back at the table singing a different tune soon enough anyway.

Love what Chucky said. Best comment of the entire SHCgate. Chucky said if Trump wanted to prove that he is not a bigot, he would sign the bill Dickie and Flake put forth. Hmm, 1,500 is a nice small number to start, a little dagger right in the heart of Bluest CA. You know, Trump never spent a lot of time in CA. Not his type. East Coast Guy.

Raids...con’t
After a few large scale swoops, you can bet your bottom dollar the Supremes will hear the case. Once the Supremes decide what the executive branch can and cannot do, everything becomes simpler. Justice has asked, now we need to force their hand. The state AGs and mayors will make darn sure of it. :)

Scenes

re: Raids.

It's obviously more PR move than anything. Enforcing existing immigration law strikes me as an election winner in most places, especially in a Presidential race. It's kind of similar to gun law. The Green Libertarians can't really go head-on in either area and succeed in a national sense.

Perhaps that explains Paul's strong preference to fixate solely on Trump's personal life (and his need to give his fifi a workout). It's hard to win on the ground on the policy issues (tax law, foreign policy, immigration, guns, rollback of stupid Obama policies) so what is left is trying to continuously attract the dogs with a new tennis ball.

I just mention this since Mr Emery's stance appears to be the sole remaining strategy of the Democratic Party nationally. This blog is the national debate writ small.

It's interesting to watch a powerful movement that's devoid of central principles. It makes sense when you view Team Blue as a temporary alliance of interest groups, all of whom have differing strong goals. The 'Republicans' have some chance of maintaining a core belief system, which appears to be slowly re-aligning now.

Nationalism vs globalism is an interesting play to watch, but that globalism is largely a chimera I think, mostly held in the minds of multinational corporate execs and California (and German) liberals. The fascination with vibrant diversity you see in parts of the West is largely a Trojan Horse for a hundred new nations, each trying to carve out a chunk of the existing ones.

Oakland just made another rule change that states that local police are forbidden from keeping public order at an ICE raid. The city of Oakland wants violence at the ICE raids. I hope it doesn't end up in violence, but you have to wonder what kind of govt official passes a rule like that. Those officials, of course, won't be anywhere near the action. Funny about that.

ScottO 1107am - Not funny at all in my mind. It is simply A21 in action. To destroy (aka "fundamentally change") America, you must first give rise to extreme divisions in its people (legal and illegal), and make as many of them as possible dependent on government handouts. When one applies that global doctrine to the internal politics of nations, it is amazing how easy it is to predict its public policies, media reactions, and public behaviors.

Back when Calif. was still a law abiding state, working down in the valley we got to see CBP in action all the time. Spring and Summer was landscaper chasing season. We would see immigration SUVs starting to close in slowly, or parked behind fences and bushes.

re: Walt

Well, it was an 83% drop instead of the 10% Bitcoin drop.

I appreciate the concept of Bitcoin, although it's inherently deflationary if it had a monopoly. OTOH, there can be an infinite number of cryptocurrencies.

It seems to me, and it's maybe just my age, that someone should invent Goldcoin. Get the UAE (or a precious metals dealer in Singapore) to invent a currency with a 1:1 metal backing and then use the cryptocurrency mechanism for doing transactions. Until the speculators move on and people simply use this stuff to buy and sell it's all just a minefield.

George, let's go into business and do Goldcoin.

Don Bessee

A lunch snack for the po' ol' fakenewsman from Tom Browkaw-

“On the other hand, Democrats going into this year, if you’re looking at what they’re talking about right now, they think all they have to do is show up, and they are going to get the congressional majority back again. They better have a plan. And the plan is not to go hard left, by the way, the way they’re going to be led by Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. They’ve got to have a scheme that addresses the old Democratic middle, people who are the working class Democrats. And unless they get to the that they can get beat.”

Scenes

re: DonB@1:21PM

"And the plan is not to go hard left, by the way,"

So far as I can tell, the Democratic platform is:

. Trump claimed that he could grab pussies at one time.
. Trump's factotums might have talked to a Russian
. Trump might have seen a Russian hooker.
. Trump might have seen an American hooker.
. Trump might be too fat
. Trump might have Alzheimer's.
. Trump might wear a wig.
. Trump might have fired a black worker once.
. Trump might have have had sketchy taxes sometime in the last 30 years.
. Trump might have his polls go up and down

lol. I mean, seriously, just read Saint Paul's BS on this forum. it's essentially the opposite of a philosophy, platform, or set of policies.

The thing is, a lot of Americans are as dumb as your average Green Libertarian, so it's probably enough to give a campaign a go.

George Rebane

Scenes 148pm - excellent summary Mr Scenes, and oh so true. And your 114pm proposal is something to ponder seriously, save that the governments and central bankers will go ballistic. They would send out their hit squads to squash anything that facilitates the ability to use blockchain transmitted gold as money, and since backing a 'cryptocurrency' by gold would just make it an untraceable proxy for gold-based transactions.

George Rebane

Re Trump and 'border security' - here's more proof that the president has been speaking about border porosity when he uses the proxy term "the wall".
https://www.wsj.com/articles/as-shutdown-nears-trump-says-the-wall-is-the-wall-1516287479

I concur that 'wall' is an unfortunate placeholder for the more sophisticated set of technologies all reasonable people, including Trump, understand that will be used to bring border porosity down to an acceptable level. But the lightly read, the plain stupid, and the president's cynical political opponents will continue drumming the concept of a contiguous border wall into the national mind, such as it is. There is no shame among the liars and bamboozlers taking advantage of the disadvantaged.

Scenes

re: GR@2:18PM

...also, it would rather violate the concept of cryptocurrency as decentralized. The gold storage itself would represent a kind of weakness.

OTOH, the mechanism is a pretty good one for transactions, failing some advancement in decryption.

The funny thing is that you could start by merely viewing it as a form of gold (or silver) ETF since Goldcoin could be marketed to a buy/hold crowd.

George Rebane

scenes 233pm - decentralization of Goldcoin could be achieved by the participation of several repositories for the metal, each having to derive some compensation for its handling and storage on some pro rata basis. And the ETF version would only work if its shares transfers would utilize blockchains. Lots of stuff to set up, and someone has to make a profit from all the effort.

Scenes

"and someone has to make a profit from all the effort."

Oh well, funny thing. That's always the thing, TANSTAAFL. I believe that Bitcoin miners currently get the transaction cost credited to them.

In any case, no doubt this notion is in no way original. What it would take is to have someone with the metal in-house, perhaps one of those precious metal storage facilities that charges rent, and out of country to hire some technical help to buy and sell from their stock using that kind of mechanism. Trust will always be an issue of course.

re Walt 505pm - the interesting thing will be the grounds on which to prosecute employers which the scumbags will have to dig out and convince a corrupt judge or two.

Enjoyable YouTube video. A rational intelligent white male against a left wing idiot.
There is so much there beyond the topic under discussion. The lefty is not able to process a straight forward conversation and constantly gets the points wrong.
The sad part is she represents a large part of what is now the sad state of academia and political thought. The most striking feature of her argument is that she is completely unable to separate his comments about what he sees as reality from his opinion of what he actually advocates.

Common Core is dead, says Education Secretary Betsy DeVos:

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos gave a far-ranging speech today in Washington at an American Enterprise Institute conference, “Bush-Obama School Reform: Lessons Learned.”
She announced the death of Common Core, at least in her federal agency.

“Unsurprisingly, nearly every state accepted Common Core standards and applied for hundreds of millions of dollars in “Race to the Top” funds. But despite this change, the United States’ PISA performance did not improve in reading and science, and it dropped in math from 2012 to 2015.

"Then, rightly, came the public backlash to federally imposed tests and the Common Core. I agree – and have always agreed – with President Trump on this: “Common Core is a disaster.” And at the U.S. Department of Education, Common Core is dead.”

Good!!

@ 8:01 pm

If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” That rule goes back a couple thousand years and also was the rule on the Mayflower as she was at sea. Work requirements apply to able bodied mostly single people of working age. Excludes college students any those enrolled in vocational schools or job training. 20 hours a week and time spent seeking employment and interview prep counts as hours worked.

But, let’s cut to the quick, shall we? The Lefties’ total opposition to all things Trump/Trump Administration/Republican (at all levels) coupled with the lack of any ideas or proposals reveals the abject bankruptcy of the Left.

Bill Tozer

Is debt talk gone with the wind? As Rand Paul.

“When I forced a vote recently on obeying the "pay as you go" rule, no Democrats, and only seven Republicans, joined me. Less than 10 percent of the Senate appears to actually care about the debt.”

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/sen-rand-paul-the-debt-and-the-decline-of-empire/article/2646263

Hmmm. I remember when Nancy, after the close of a particular session of Congress, sited her proudest accomplishment of that session was her successful hard work on the passage of Pay Go.

re: Work requirements for Medicaid / Medi-Cal.

As a practical matter, I just can't see it. Poor people, especially the indigent and/or young, aren't going to bother and will simply use the emergency room anyway. The hospital ends up paying the bill and either passes it on to people who pay or just eats the cost (and perhaps goes out of business).

In any case, the whole system is so broken that I'm fresh out of ideas.

I had never heard of Jordan Peterson until yesterday. I can see why he's become a lightning rod. Firm on principle and unwaveringly logical and calm. Doesn't really matter what the topic of discussion is - he cuts right to the inherent BS and and unreality of the left and the damage it does in society.

jon smith

Don Bessee can you hear us now?!!

By unanimous vote there will be THREE cannabis centers in Nevada City and a fast moving plan to support a cannabis campus. Grass Valley is taking up the baton with a proposed recreational dispensary. Take your "just say no to anything I don't like" attitude to Alabama and don't let the door hit you in the arse.

George Rebane

From a casual perusal of liberal commenters' admonitions over the years, it appears that the Left is also a proponent of the Great Divide as they encourage people of different opinions and viewpoints to emigrate and join with their like-minded.

Bill Tozer

Peterson:
To understand Peterson’s worldview, you have to see the connection between his opposition to gender-neutral pronouns and his obsession with the Soviet Union. He believes that the insistence on the use of gender-neutral pronouns is rooted in postmodernism, which he sees as thinly disguised Marxism. The imposition of Marxism led to the state-sponsored slaughter of millions. For Peterson, then, the mandated use of gender-neutral pronouns isn’t just a case of political correctness run amok. It’s much more serious than that. When he refers to the "murderous ideology" of postmodernism, he means it literally.

jon smith

GR 9:12 - Interesting commentary coming from an unabashed right wing propagandist. Replace "liberal" and "Left" in your pronouncement with "conservative" and "Right" and look in the mirror.

Robert Cross

Does anyone notice they aren't deporting or hassling white people? People of color don't often vote for pubbers so the idea is to get rid of them before they become citizens and can vote, which would all but eliminate popular vote loser Presidents like trump and Bush. It is all a ploy, combined with voter suppression and gerrymandering to keep the fossils in power indefinitely at the expense of working people and the planet. Any guess as to when trump will start making detainees take "showers" in the detention camps? #SAD

Unfun facts.

There are more unborn African American babies aborted in New York City today than there are African American births.

The last thing I would today (knowing what I know now and not knowing that I did know then) is to give any friend suffering with depression, bi-polar, or mild schizophrenia a hit off my recreational pot. Pot is an enhancer, nay a trigger for adverse reactions, not a calming smoothing tea for such folks.
Considering that experts have stated decade after decade that 10% of our population suffers from mental illness, which in the 90’s became 10-15%, and today is 15-20%, I have changed my tune significantly since the “do your own thang, let it all hang out” days.
I no longer believe recreational pot is benign and is not harmless by any stretch of the imagination for a growing percentage of our friends and neighbors and members of our community who may have a screw or two not snugged down tight. It ain’t for everybody and is throwing gas on the fire for those already predisposed to imbalance.

I threw out two topics above that you are free to use for ass wipe. But in my tiny andedotal world, it is becoming increasingly too lazy, too inconvenient, too painful not to look.

Walt @ earlier this lovely calm before the storm..

“Hey Bobby.. That's not true. If they catch a "white illegal,"
He/she goes home too”

Well, we tried to get one whitie sent home packing, almost made it out of here, but the community uproar got her back. This was even after she impersonated someone else, lied to our police right in his face, provided false information, no to mention to think about if the insurance on the car she was driving would even cover the illegal if she got in an accident. Even Todd wanted the illegal white woman to stay here.

When you sign a visa, it clearly states you agree to forfeit all rights of appeal to deportion and you are automatically given the boot if you overstay your visa....even after 30 years.

So, Walt, I can name one. Some community asset gal from Lithuania or whatever that speck on the map is called. Where in the hell is Lithuania and did I spell it right? :)


George Rebane

MaryW 1000am - Not sure if your comment implies that you are among the enlightened, and have understood Trump to be talking about border porosity instead of a physical wall from the Pacific to Gulf. If it does, I'm heartened, and bid that you inform your like-minded so that they don't continue making fools of themselves and/or being purposely cynical to fool those less enlightened.

Bill Tozer

Aha! Mystery solved. Lithuania is a district in Norway!!

George Rebane

jons 922am - what you miss Mr smith is that the conservetarians have already acknowledged the benefits of and the progress toward the Great Divide. My 912am points out that the Left appears to also promote achieving the Great Divide, but through selective migrations, which is NOT what their counterparts exhort. (Now that wasn't too hard, was it?)

GeorgeR 1024am - Yes, I understood that it would practically impossible in terms of time and money to literally build a wall from the Pacific to the Gulf; Trump voters obviously did not. But "the wall fantasy" is one of the reasons he is in office today.
