The state odopts in charge are unAmerican and need to be fired. Elias has a good article today on how they don't give a rat's ass about what the people want. Mainly in death penalty issues, but Prop 187 and others things. Prop 13 is next and then increases in taxes without a vote.

Todd- Please add odopts to the glossary. Us American english speakers don't understand your nonsense.

George- " Locally here in Nevada County we have seen the influx in recent years of liberals with markedly more radical beliefs"

I believe you were living in LA LA land during the 60's and early 70's so you are forgiven for not remembering the conflicts between the Anandanista's, the Ginsberg crowd and the "conservative indigenous" of our area. When was the last time you had the tires of your VW bus blown out by a redneck with a shotgun? With the notable exception of the bunker/survivalist mentality Tea Party types, I think the rancor of those times has mellowed a wee bit and the biggest societal change we've seen in the past decade has been fueled by meth and homelessness, not intellectual "SF values" - whatever those are.

Here's an interesting piece...

It appears visions of Brennan, Clapped and others Being frogmarched out in chains is coming soon.

"It has been evident from day one that there was a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton illegally, and then, if she lost the election, to frame Donald Trump. This [Steele] dossier was a knowing part of that. It was created by Hillary Clinton. It was created knowingly by [former CIA Director] John Brennan as part of a scheme to do everything they could to harm Donald Trump.

The problem for Brennan and [former Director of National Intelligence]Clapper and [former FBI Director] Comey and [former FBI General Counsel] Baker and all of them now is, is that the FISA Court has already communicated with the Justice Department about its findings. And their findings are that from more than four years before the election of Donald Trump, there was an illegal spying operation going on by FBI [private] contractors — four of them — to steal personal information, electronic information about Americans and to use it against the Republican Party.

There are going to be indictments. There’s going to be grand juries. John Brennan isn’t going to need one lawyer. He’s going to need five!"

Trump threatens Cuba with 'full and complete' embargo, 'highest-level sanctions,' citing Venezuela role

Trump's dramatic threat came hours after his administration resoundingly endorsed an ongoing Venezuelan opposition effort, headed by Juan Guaido and Leopoldo Lopez, to spark a military uprising against embattled President Nicolas Maduro. The Trump administration also has worked to roll back Obama-era easing of Cold War sanctions on Cuba.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters Tuesday that Maduro had been on his way out of the country bound for Cuba, but that Russia told him to remain. Bolton, meanwhile, warned Russia against interfering.

The U.S. government said about 20,000 Cuban troops and agents have been working in Venezuela to prop up Maduro's government, a figure disputed by Cuba.

“All power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” – Mao Zedong

“MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders accidentally made a strong case for the Second Amendment on Tuesday during a segment on the far-left network about the chaos in Venezuela.”

"You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that's open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country."

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight," Venezuelan teacher Javier Vanegas told Fox News. "The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population."

Oooozing with stupidity - "With the notable exception of the bunker/survivalist mentality Tea Party types, I think the rancor of those times has mellowed a wee bit..."
Rancor?
Any examples?
No, I didn't think so.
Just make it up as we go, do we?

Thanks for the link to U. Haque's stink piece. The author starts off with a bald faced lie, but that's par for the left.
The truth won't get them where they want so just start the lie machine and crank it til the handle falls off.
"I was greeted this morning by the spectacle of a President calling refugees and immigrants “animals” on Twitter."
Except he didn't. Notice there's no link.
The really amusing thing is that even if Trump had said that, it still wouldn't be fascism. But that was George's point in the first place. Fascism is just a funny old word to most people with bad connotations.
The masses have no idea what it means. It actually applies mostly to the left these days and they know it, so just wad it up and throw it back to see if it sticks. Throw enough mud and it always makes your target look dirty. Even if the dirt came from you.

The arrival in Nevada County of "San Francisco values" were, introduced, celebrated, and explained to us by the FUE. He should be the source of its salutary meaning; the rest of us see such values as being the cause of a great city's demise, and the visible detritus of its residue today.

“Putting down others.”

You would know. Like the current post about George Rebane at the movies, or ragging on Barry Pruett about his law school. What a hypoocrite.

Why did you pull the post mocking Don Bessee because he left an apostrophe out of it’s? Was it because you realized it made you look like the petty person you are, or did Bessee scare you?

Given your antipathy toward people who didn’t work at metropolitan dailies, I’m surprised you sought a job at The Union. Did you need the money? Did you get frozen out when Cnet sold out? LOL, as they say.

For the record: I didn’t go to a small Catholic college–I went to a large state college–and I didn’t marry into money.

Wallow in its pettifoggery @ 741! Its about the message. Its pathetic of you. Its all I have to think about in my highly rewarding life, the poor little apostrophe that auto correct does not care about. Its what it is.

But hey if you can not defeat the IDEAS, its ok to take refuge behind the apostrophe if its a comfort to you. Its still not anything anyone cares about in the real world. LOL


Its my hope that your back is not suffering from all that rolling on the floor. If so its a shame.

Re: Speaking of Leftwing liars and fakenews....and lying sacks of the sticky brown stuff

“Here’s the reality. Democrats are angry at Mueller for not recommending obstruction charges, but they want to sell their votive candles on eBay, so they won’t hit Mueller. Instead, they’ll misdirect to Barr, then claim a cover-up that hasn’t happened. And Mueller would prefer that Barr be hit for declining to prosecute over Mueller himself being hit for – wait for it – declining to prosecute, which is effectively what Mueller did.”

George Rebane

This morning's Dem/NPR spin on reality -
1. The M report 'failed to indict' Trump on Russia collusion; no word about no evidence of collusion found.
2. The M report 'found plenty of evidence' on obstruction carried out by Team Trump.
3. Mueller disagrees with Barr's summary of report as 'inaccurate and incomplete', M's 27mar19 letter and subsequent B/M telecon not withstanding.
4. Barr refuses to testify before Congress, ignoring Senate testimony and being silent on the procedural disagreement between Barr and Nadler who wants hearing conducted like a criminal proceeding with staff lawyers questioning the AG.

Two different universes.

Bill Tozer

I will put this buried here: Re: speaking of leftwing liars and fake news.

It is now looking more and more that the contents of the Dossier was Russian propaganda fed directly to Steele to influence the election and sow discord. Russian intel knew that the FBI and Clinton Campaign were looking for dirt on Trump and Fusion GPS provided the Russians with the perfect vehicle to dissimulate Russian misinformation/disinformation to the US government and media.

Bill Tozer

Re: Leftwing liars and fakenews. Fear is the big one. Fear that they cannot impose their will and fear that they will be exposed for what they are.

“Do not underestimate how many powerful people in Washington have something to lose from Mr. Barr’s probe. Among them: Former and current leaders of the law-enforcement and intelligence communities. The Democratic Party pooh-bahs who paid a foreign national (Mr. Steele) to collect information from Russians and deliver it to the FBI. The government officials who misused their positions to target a presidential campaign. The leakers. The media. More than reputations are at risk. Revelations could lead to lawsuits, formal disciplinary actions, lost jobs, even criminal prosecution.

“The attacks on Mr. Barr are first and foremost an effort to force him out, to prevent this information from coming to light until Democrats can retake the White House in 2020. As a fallback, the coordinated campaign works as a pre-emptive smear, diminishing the credibility of his ultimate findings by priming the public to view him as a partisan.”

Re: the profound ignorance of grassroots leftists here and across the nation.

“The working group decided that a mural of George Washington the founder and father of our country at a high school called George Washington High School quote, "traumatizes students and community members." It doesn't just offend them it traumatizes them.”

“What is happening, in reality, is a mob is demanding that we burn books, burn history, burn artwork and burn paintings. But the way the left organizes it is they say, it's not a mob it's a working group and we're not destroying art because it offends us, we're destroying art because it traumatizes us. It committed violence on us, so we now will commit violence on it.”

“.......They don't know anything about George Washington or about what he stands for. But that indictment is just as bad because they're a school district. They are supposed to educate students but they don't know anything themselves. They don't know anything about history.”

Re: May 1 update, Mueller whinning about his PR.

“Apparently, Mueller’s bitch was with the media’s characterization (i.e. spin) of the 18apr19 release of his redacted report along with Barr’s 4-pager.” —Dr. Rebane

What strikes me today reading several conservative writers (some no fans of Trump) almost apologizing for having to write about the nonsensical Dem spin on Barr. It’s like they find the topic so absorb, so unhinged, so off the charts from reality that they would rather no even waste their time or the readers’ with such silly Lefty antics. Truly, Liberalism is a mental disorder and Progressivism reaches the depths of depravity and beyond.

BillT, I agree the left is overdoing it to the tune of absurdity. And they have shown so much disrespect that I think the people are tuning them out.

Bill Tozer

Todd @ 8:04 pm.

And I agree with your agreement. :) And thanks for picking up and correcting my typo. Absurdity, not absorb. Total absurdity. I, like the writers I read this morning,just don’t feel like educating the Lefties no more or even posting another link refuting “ Barr is a traitor to the rule of law, the separation of powers, and our Democracy”. Just don’t have the desire or strength to educate them on the facts of life no more. Actually, it’s been that way for a while, just growing deeper everyday.
Let them live in everlasting fallacy. Reagan comes to mind. From memory, “It’s not that our friends of the Left are ignorant, it’s that they know so many things that are not so.”

From Jonah Goldberg’s blog. Encapsulates my feeling. Blah, blah, blah.

“Speaking of snitty — and I don’t mean the eighth dwarf — I really don’t want to write about the Bill Barr brouhaha bedeviling the Beltway Brahmins, but alliteration beckons and beguiles, perforce the professional pundit proceeds with perhaps pusillanimous, perchance pugnacious, pontification on the pending pertinent predicaments.

“Sorry, I won’t do that again.

“You know that feeling when you and your fellow Knights Templar are sitting around drinking absinthe-flavored Fresca watching turtles play chess, but no one else notices that the bigger turtle, which is actually a rare breed of parrot that likes to wear unlicensed Phish concert T-shirts, brings its queen out way too early? No wait, that’s a different feeling. A somewhat related one is when everybody is screaming about stuff you don’t think is scream-worthy.

“That’s how I feel about this Barr stuff. On the substance, I mostly fall in with my colleagues on this one. Bill Barr stands accused of a heinous cover-up. But he didn’t actually cover up anything. He wrote a letter that characterized the findings of the Mueller report in terms that were favorable to the president, but not inaccurate. The monster! He then released the report less than a month later with minimal and, by most objective accounts, perfectly reasonable redactions.”

Guess I will put this here. Said from the get-go that Mueller’s job was to bury evidence as much to investigate. Uncover, discover, discard. What does Mueller know that is not in the report? Good read.

“Little notice was made of Mueller’s apparent failure to investigate whether Russia interfered in the election by peddling phony intel to Steele that Steele relayed to the FBI, until Sen. Chuck Grassley raised the issue with Attorney General William Barr last week. During questioning before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Grassley pitched the issue as follows:

“The Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee hired Fusion GPS to do opposition research against candidate Trump. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, former British intelligence officer, to compile what we all know as the Steele dossier, that reportedly used Russian government sources for information. The Steele dossier was central to the now-debunked collusion narrative.
Now here’s the irony: The Mueller report spent millions investigating and found no collusion between Trump campaign and Russia but the Democrats paid for a document created by a foreign national with reported foreign government sources. Not Trump, but the Democrats. That’s the definition of collusion. Despite the central status of the Steele dossier to the collusion narrative, the Mueller report failed to analyze whether the dossier was filled with disinformation to mislead U.S. intelligence agencies and the FBI.
“My question,” Grassley continued: “Mueller spent over two years and 30 million dollars investigating Russia interference in the election. In order for a full accounting of Russia interference attempts, shouldn’t the special counsel have considered whether the Steele dossier was part of a Russian disinformation and interfere campaign?”
