Well, the EU is in on reparations, but those darn Spaniards won’t get with the program.

“Spain’s Foreign Minister Josep Borrell said it was “weird to receive now this request for an apology for events that occurred 500 years ago.”

“He wondered if Spain should seek an apology from France for the invasion of the Iberian Peninsula and crimes committed by the armies of Napoleon, or if France could demand an apology from Italy for the invasion of Gaul by Julius Caesar.

Hmmm. The Spanish right do not appear to be in the mood for asking forgiveness either.

“Alberto Rivera, leader of the Ciudadanos, called Lopez Obrador’s demand “an intolerable offense to the Spanish people.”

“Rafael Hernando of the Popular Party dismissed it with contempt: “We Spaniards went there (to Mexico) and ended the power of tribes that assassinated their neighbors with cruelty and fury.”

The authorette is described thus: "Cera Byer is a dancemaker and teacher based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her favorite Ninja Turtle is Donatello."
Get this: "You, my white male friend, occupy the highest social, economic and political position in our country. And, let's be real, that position was begotten unfairly."
She's not talking about the Kennedys or O'Rourke - she's talking about ALL white males in the US. All of them. They're all the same. All of them occupy the highest positions of power and fame in the US and they all don't deserve it. All of them.
I'll keep that in mind next time I'm in Downtown Boise in the areas where the winos hang out. Maybe hand out copies of this article to them and ask them how ashamed they must feel about their ill-gotten privilege.
Or maybe she actually does mean the 2 humans (we think) that identify as male that also identify as her freind on facebook. Yet this is published in Salon.

ScottO and the value of the Ivy League in the Age of Climate Doom.

I like the concept, as the sea level rises and we are subject to the inevitable sharknados, there's nothing worth doing at Harvard beyond the rowing team. The next logical step for the US elite is to become survivalists. Rather than a university, the kids can learn how to make pemmican and shoot straight. This is a beautifully ironic idea.

Frankly, I've always wondered why people simply don't have their kids tutored rather than send them to a high-end school, access to expensive equipment aside. You could probably rent quite a few professor-hours at $50k/year. No doubt the piece of paper is still too valuable to ignore.

Jussie Smollett might have been a no-show at Saturday night's NAACP Image Awards in Hollywood but that didn't stop comedian Chris Rock from blasting the "Empire" star.

"They said 'No Jussie Smollett jokes' ... What a waste of light skin. Do you know what I could do with that light skin? That curly hair? My career would be out of here! I'd be running Hollywood," said Rock, who was on hand to present the award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Scott: Victimhood is the highest status of being a Dem-Socialist. BTW, I am already getting tired of typing Dem-Socialists. It was easier pre-Trump when you could just type Dem or Lib. But, noooo. Everything gets longer and hyphenated. Gotta stay up with the times as the Dems merge with the Socialists. Dem-Socialist is redundant and synonymous.

Maybe I should write a post to the Dem-Socialists on FB to tell them how it feels to live among them. Maybe they just need to look in their hearts. Maybe they are unaware. Maybe they are blissfully naive how it feels to be dehumanized. Nah, why waste the breath.

Oh my! Biden kissed a woman on the back of her head. Trump grabbed 'em by the pussy and stuck his tongue in their mouths. GOP is outraged, OUTRAGED by Uncle Joe.

Gregory

Trump didn't do that in office, "Ozz"... and Biden has been in office for decades.

Creepy Joe at work.

George Rebane

re Ozz 957am - I had no idea that "GOP was outraged"; where can we find a description of that outrage? I'm not outraged, and don't know anyone else who is. Uncle Joe is a kindly old gentleman who likes to affectionately touch younger women, what a concept? Give the man some slack; his wife Jill does.

And what Donald Trump did in his pre-public private life doesn't outrage me either. As long as it was between consenting adults - let them sort it out if at a later date one of the adults decides it wasn't all that consenting. The litany of horny presidents having dalliances before, during, and after their terms is long, sometimes scurrilous, but also entertaining.

Todd Juvinall

GOP has not said a word. OOZE s making it up. All the outrage is from democrat feminazi babes. Biden is well known for creepy behavior around babes.

Bill Tozer

Whatever, whoever the Dem-Socialists decide upon is A-Ok with me. Biden does have a rather long and creepy history of his weird quirk to smell female’s hair and snuggle the back of their necks in public setting....females of all ages. Plus walking naked in front of his Secret Service detail is not appreciated by both the male and female agents. Into exhibitionism I reckon. Nobody is perfect. It was a Dem canidate who brought forth the accusations, so let the Dems fight it out. Did like what the Dem candidate for Nevada Lt. Governor said when Creepy Uncle Joe did his habitual thang to her in public, “Earth swallow me whole.”, lol.

“I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything.” —AP

“But in another light, Biden’s behavior struck some as disturbing. At a Senate swearing-in ceremony in 2015, Biden whispered in the ear of a senator’s teenage daughter and kissed the side of her head, an interaction that a conservative writer described as a “lecherous elderly man creeping on underage girl” and said Biden would’ve caught more flak if he were a Republican.

https://pilotonline.com/news/government/politics/article_cba7d87e-fac8-5339-9621-de52b1155e48.html

Creepy Uncle Joe won’t announce until after April 1st. If he declared prior to that date, he would have to disclose his bigley donors. Now, he does not have to disclose for awhile. Don’t matter to me in the least who the Dem-Socialist Party picks. It’s their old white men.

Bottomline: this is the opening from now until the Dem nominee is chosen next year that they will savage each other. I believe her, I don’t recall. It’s open season on eating their own until they all rally around the flag after their convention.

Gregory

"Uncle Joe is a kindly old gentleman who likes to affectionately touch younger women, what a concept? Give the man some slack; his wife Jill does"

There are many creepy old men who like to affectionately touch younger women who get slapped, sometimes on the cheek, sometimes into prison.

Biden should be remembered for his destruction of the historic deference to Presidents to get their choices of Supreme Court justices for his part in leading the Borking of Robert Bork, for no reason other than Bork was seen by some (probably correctly so) as being right on the overreach of Roe v. Wade and would convince the Supremes to change their minds.

Concerning the youth’s gravitation to socialism, the man gives three brief reasons. Number One stands out. I know a few that lost their way when they lost the “attitude of gratitude.” Short link.

“GOP is outraged, OUTRAGED by Uncle Joe.” Ozzz @ 0’ toke thirty.

So, Ozzzz’s characterizes comments concerning Creepy Uncle Joe as “OUTRAGED”, lol. Sweet. Outraged I ell ya, it’s a bloody outrage!

Must not comment on Creepy Joe Biden....or his White apology tour. Must not go there. Must not have fun at Creepy Joe’s expense. That’s outrageous.

If anyone is outraged, it is the one who doth protest too much. Besides, Shotgun Joe, tat lecherous elderly man creeping on underage girl does not remember. I will extend him the benefit of the doubt, albeit Pocahontas and Cruel Amy are not so willing to sweep it under the carpet. It probably was all a dirty trick spread by My Gal, the invisible hand behind the Democrat Party.

Happy National Border Control Day.

“That’s why March 31 is increasingly recognized as National Border Control Day. (Arizona representative Paul Gosar introduced a resolution to that effect last week.)And with a Merkel-level migration disaster brewing on our southern border, its observance is all the more necessary.”

“Chavez channeled the vexation of his fellow border hawks over the years: “It’s frustrating to be a citizen of this country and see that your government, because of inaction of some bureaucrats, are not living up to the law.” Elsewhere in the speech Chavez foreshadows Donald Trump: “What the heck’s going on? It’s just, it’s a complete breakdown of the law. They’re not doing anything.”

“Where have you gone, Cesar Chavez? On this National Border Control Day, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you.”

Gotta love the look on the Biker’s face in the diner. Priceless. Like, “Is he doing what I think he’s doing?” Yep.
Biden’s Anita Hill apology tour is causing a bigger backlash among the Addicted to Outrage female man-haters than anything else. #MeToo changed everything for those who are addicted to outrage. Outrage appears to be the Left’s drug of choice, right up there with power and victimhood.
There are some big time pissed off women wanting revenge for Creepy Joe’s treatment of Anita Hill. “Apology to her face! not us, Joe! Not good enough! To her face, asshole!” They have Daddy issues. :)

My, my. No matter how hard Dumb Joe tries to wash and scrub himself, he just can’t get that whiteness off his skin. May be a problem for the Leftinistas.

"Jussie Smollett was a victim!" insists Oh.
"Oh, please," retorts McKinnon.
Then Redd walks in wearing a red MAGA hat.
"Guys, you are not going to believe what just happened to me," Redd says. "I got attacked again!" He promptly digs through a shopping bag that holds Crest White Strips, the letters KKK and a Teletubby. "The killer left me a bunch of clues!"

"What killer?" asks an exasperated McKinnon.
"You're still alive, Jussie," retorted another exec, played by Day.
"Only because I fought back, because I’m the gay Mike Tyson," insists Redd.
Oh, as his manager, eventually fires him.

Looking like prime minister mcdreamy is going to be a 1 and done -

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing renewed calls to resign after a secretly recorded telephone call between two senior figures in his administration was made public, escalating claims he tried to shield an allegedly corrupt firm from prosecution.

The 17-minute call took place in December between Jody Wilson-Raybould, then the attorney general, and Michael Wernick, then Canada’s most senior civil servant, about the engineering company SNC-Lavalin, which was accused of paying bribes to Libyan officials.
Mr Wernick is heard in the audio telling Ms Wilson-Raybould that Mr Trudeau is interested in having the firm avoid criminal prosecution in favour of paying a fine, repeatedly saying that the prime minister is in a “pretty firm” frame of mind on the issue.
"I think he is going to find a way to get it done one way or another. He's in that kind of mood. I wanted you to be aware of that,” Mr Wernick is heard saying at one point.
Ms Wilson-Raybould in turn pushes back, raising concerns that the conversation could amount to “political interference” and an attempt to breach her “prosecutorial independence”. She declined to push for the prosecution to be dropped.

Ms Wilson-Raybould was eventually moved from the role in January, one month after the phone call, and given the more junior position of veterans affairs minister. She has since resigned and gone public with claims she was inappropriately leaned on.

The audio was released by Ms Wilson-Raybould along with more than 40 pages of documents backing up her allegations. She said that she chose to secretly record the conversation because she was concerned something “inappropriate” would be said.
She said she “took the extraordinary and otherwise inappropriate step of making an audio recording of the conversation” without telling Mr Wernick, adding that it was “something that I have never done before this phone call and have not done since”.

Mr Wernick stepped down from his role as Privy Council clerk earlier this month.

Bill Tozer

Poor ole Creepy Uncle Joe taking heat for not apologizing to one messed up liar, lol.

“Unlike the accusation against Kavanaugh, Hill’s allegations of sexual harassment were potentially a criminal matter. And in that regard, Hill wasn’t a credible accuser. Not a single person came forward to substantiate that Thomas, who had hundreds of subordinates under him over his years of working in government, had ever acted in the ways described by Hill towards anyone else. Twelve former female colleagues of Thomas and Hill signed an affidavit supporting him. Not one person who worked with both came forward to vouch for Hill.”

“The FBI investigated Hill’s claim against Thomas—though she was always reluctant to cooperate—and not only did it fail to find any evidence to back her claims, but after the hearings, agents sent additional affidavits to the Senate accusing Hill of misleading the public by skipping portions of her story and offering public testimony that contradicted what she had told law enforcement officials.“

And to think that Anita Hill has a display honoring her in the Black History exhibit at the Smithsonian while Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was excluded. The Left sure has a problem with the truth, facts, revisionist history, stupidity, getting it wrong (way wrong), fakenews, and more stupidity. Mountains of dumbness.

PaulE 317pm - Not yet. But not to worry. Obamacare is not going to be banished for some time yet - remember, it is expensive and millions are still not covered. There is plenty of time to adopt an alternative, especially given that Repub alternatives are already on the shelf from which a better approach based on market principles can be constructed. You will also recall that there exists no sustainable nationalized healthcare system that is not cutting services and desperately trying to figure out how to cut costs. 'Patience grasshopper' ;-)

First Obama called us bitter clingers. Next Hillary called us half Deplorables and the other half Irredeemables. Then Biden called us Dregs of Society. Not to be undone, Mad Max just called us Sycophants. Cool. Moving up in the world.

Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan suffered a severe setback on Sunday as his ruling AK Party was set to lose control of the capital Ankara for the first time in a local election and he appeared to concede defeat in the country's largest city, Istanbul.

Erdogan, who has dominated Turkish politics since coming to power 16 years ago and ruled his country with an ever tighter grip, campaigned relentlessly for two months ahead of Sunday's vote, which he described as a "matter of survival" for Turkey.

They are getting more rabid and tearing each other apart in their own civil war -

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Saturday said that small-dollar Democratic donors should stop donating to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and give to swing candidates instead.

Ocasio-Cortez's criticism of the DCCC is in response to Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), the new chairwoman of the DCCC, announcing a new policy earlier this month that attempts to protect incumbent Democrats from primary challengers. The new policy bans Democratic consultants from working with primary challengers if they want to continue doing business with DCCC.

A twofer from the littlest commiecongress-critter -

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y., might want to brush up on some history after asserting, incorrectly, that Republicans in Congress amended the Constitution to kick President Franklin Delano Roosevelt out of office.
"They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected," Ocasio-Cortez said Friday during a night hall event with MSNBC with Chris Hayes.

Ocasio-Cortez was referring to the 22nd Amendment of the Constitution which passed in 1947.
The text of the amendment states, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.” FDR died in 1945, meaning he was dead for a full two years before presidential term limits were implemented.

Re: Biden. This is how Dems lie:

“DNC finance chair Henry Munoz said he doesn’t believe Flores because he doesn’t think she was ever alone with Biden at the event. Latino Victory Fund, a progressive group Munoz co-founded, organized the event where Flores said Biden kissed her.”

No, Flores never said she was alone with Biden.

—I heard the pencil neck geek say after the Mueller report came out that Trump Campaign went to the Tower to get dirt on Hillary and accepted information from the Russians that benefited Trump.

No, they did nott accept any information because Don Jr and Kushner walked out. Besides, the Russsians did not bring dirt on Hillary. No ‘benefit.’ In addition, the Mueller summary said the Trump Campaign was appproached by Russians and did not take the bait. Not offfered, not accepted, never happened.

—Heard some talking head or The Pencil Neck Geek say a few days ago (after the Mueller report) proclaim Flynn illegally contacted the Russian Ambassador during the transition.

No, Trump TOLD. Flynn to contact the Russian Ambassador, a legal and expected thing to do.

More on the scum sucking scab picking Pencil Neck Geek. Me thinks he sees himself as the star prosecutor and savior of the nation. No self awareness. Typical of pencil neck geeks and popinjays.

“Like the hypothetical lawyer giving the closing argument above, Schiff would like us to believe that the star witness (Mueller) he once told us would validate his circumstantial evidence is no longer essential to the proceedings. In fact, his testimony should be dismissed, and Schiff’s opinion should be substituted for the legal conclusions of the expert.

“Given the lather he worked himself into at Thursday’s committee meeting, it’s a good bet that Schiff will continue his quixotic quest to pin something on the president, evidentiary standards be damned, until he settles on something that will meet his own standard of very close to guilty enough.”

A perfect example of how the media and their popinjays lie and spread fakenews. Add a word, drop a word, make an agrument from statement not said. Create a straw man and knock ‘er down. How those so easily misled, grossly misinformed, and astonishing repeatedly wrong can show their faces in public again is beyond me. Must be a deep seated narcissism couple with unwarranted arrogance.

They are truly conclusions looking for arguments, poor things. I suppose they deserve pity.

Gregory: "What does "nationalized" mean, Paul? "

I think it means "Just like they do in Denmark, even though I have no clue what they do in Denmark". Its about as fact-filled as the old news of wildly swinging at the Russia investigation when there was no there there. It's like having a jack in the box that can activate itself.

BillT: "They are truly conclusions looking for arguments, poor things."

Flynn plead guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. It was about whether he asked the Russian Ambassador to not reciprocate in kind against the new sanctions and Trump’s hope that the Russians would not vote (or delay voting) on a UN Resolution condemning Israel. He also had been an unregistered agent doing work for the Islamic State of Turkey before Nov, 2016 when he joined the Trump transition team as Nat”l Security Advisor. He was not charged for that, neither for errors on the the form registering for working for a foreign government....the other lie.

Mueller recommended no jail time. Zero.

The FBI had the full transcripts of Flynn’s call to the Ambassador before they even approached him. There was nothing in the phone call that was illegal or raised eyebrows. Totally legal and run of the bill for a senior official of a transition team.

Why Flynn lied is something we don’t know. He is and has been under a gag order, so he cannot explain or publicly defend himself. We know he was urged not to go through the White House legal office or have White House lawyer present. The FBI stated Flynn was relaxed, jovial. My guess is he did not know it was an FBI interview and Flynn did not know the protocol of all West Wing interviews with the FBI are run through the White House legal office first. McCabe called him, “ Hey Mike, it’s me Andy.” They
talked about a little league baseball team, a non-profit , ....and BTW, .I am sending a couple agents over to drop by your office. Just got a couple of questions.” to paraphrase.

My 8:03 pm was to dispute The Pencil Neck Geek statements AFTER the Mueller Report. He said Flynn illegally contacted the Russian Ambassador. No, Trump told Flynn to contact the Russian Ambassador. Total legit for a National Security Advisor of any transition team to contact ambassadors of heads of states. Not illegal in the least and he did so at the President-elect’s direction.......unless.....unless......drumroll please....unless you a such a bigley stupid idiot you would swallow that Logan Act ridiculous nonsense hook, line, and sinker, roflmao. Nobody is that stupid. Opps, the popinjays are!

As an interesting side note, at Flynn sentencing hearing on Dec. 18, we learned from docs that when Flynn was interviewed about whether about he asked Russia not to vote on the UN Resolution condemning Israel, Flynn answered, “not really.” We also learned that he was testifying in a Grand Jury in Virginia against his former business partners when they did work of the Government of Turkey. It wasn’t about Russian Collusion and Flynn had the goods on Trump!!! The noose is tightening and Flynn is a Liar!

Flynn plead guilty to protect his son who also was involved in working for the government of Turkey. Turkey wanted the US to extradite the cleric Fethullah Gulen for his role in the coup attempt...along with 84 of his followers. Never happen. It would be the death sentence for Gulen. Flynn fell on the sword when the FBI dangled his son before him. The Judge asked Flynn four times if he was sure he wanted to plead guilty. Are you sure. Judge Sullivan also said he never convicted an innocent man beforeand did not intend to start today. Hmmmm.

The most interesting thing we learned at Flynn’s December sentencing (since postponed) is that Judge Sullivan, confused on dates, asked the prosecutor about The Logan Act and the whole courtroom of government lawyers and press broke out in snickers, ROFLMAO. The Judge looked at the prosecutor and said, “You do realized the Logan Act has never been prosecuted” as a throw away comment before telling the courtroom to have a Happy Holiday.

The Logan Act. Good one. Makes me snicker at the fools who would spout such a silly folly.

Bottomline: Why bother. You can’t fix stupid. No more wasting my time.

I checked out your links and graphics and they actually enhance my point of view. Exhibit 1 Health care spending as a percentage of the GDP reveal that between 1980 and 2014 the European countries that have established National Health Care systems rose an average of only around 2 or 3 % during those 24 years. However this country , that had no national health care system during most of those years more than doubled. The greatest growth was during the Bush Jr years-over 6%. the graph shows that %of GDP stabilized between 2009 and 2014 during the time Obamacare was introduced.

How do you explain those numbers and how do they support your view that those countries have out of control health costs?

Oh Don. Those far lefty socialists are gunning for Biden. It ain’t coming from the Right. Somebody is digging up dirt on Biden and doing the ole opposition research. My guess is Biden will get through this just like the Governor of North Carolina with his black face. Afterall, Biden is a Democrat. Interesting to see who is rallying around Creepy Joe, and which politicians and media outlets are not. My guess is they are going to give Biden a pass. Professsional courtesy.

#MeToo in 2020?

NBC has had their Matt Lauer scandal. CBS has their Les Moonves, Bernie had his mean male staffer scandal. Now they are saying one time is ok. Everytime someone brings up Flores’s statement about being so creeped out by Uncle Joe she wanted the earth to swallow her whole and get away from the old Chester the Molester kissing on her head, they pivot to Ashley pink tie Carter wife’s exoneration letter. Politics trumps gender....when it comes to the top.

That's because you never went there to begin with. You have no information to back uyp your contention which is verified by your unwillingness to discuss such basic factors as to why the % of the GDP in our country rose at a dramatically higher rate than those of Euro States with National health care. Still waiting for your explanation as to why the provided chart has information that would somehow support your conclusions about the massive growth of Euro health care compared to ours. In fact it shows quite the opposite.
