You have to be reminded constantly.

…..or not.


Where did Emery leave off? Oh..yaa..
Tell us Emery,, just what's the Commie Progressive Socialist Democrat platform? "I hate Trump"?
What the plan to really "F" up America any worse than "O" did?
Back to high taxes, high unemployment, massive re-regulation?
Free shit for all, and no clue how to pay for it?
Scrap the 2ND Amendment?
Can't win by the rules,, so change the rules?
Yup, your LIBS sure have it in the bag to beat Trump.


Always….the "Top Men" argument! Remember for Socialism to work the herd must be culled…….but "Bad People"….only them…..everybody else is entitled to a genuine Venezuela style utopian workers paradise.

"The numbers are what they are Gregory. You have to be reminded constantly"

You're the one who needs to keep being dragged back to reality... Purple is a mix of red and blue. Nevada County is a mix of red and blue and even in the March State Senate election, it was 54% GOP and 46% DEM.

Red, if this one election decides majority rules. I say purple. You dream of a Blue county.

Dream on, Punch.


Hmmm... checking... what percentage of the votes cast yesterday went to a GOP candidate, in the Senate district as a whole, and in Nevada County?

100% Wow!

It's a Red day in Nevada County and all its precincts! Even your Nevada City Bluish of the blues!

Almost makes me want to be a Republican. Good going team red.


Just goes to show you, give the people a choice between a Republican and a Republican, they'll choose the Republican every time.

Let's all bow our heads to Will Rogers, American humorist extraordinaire.

Bill Tozer

He ain’t no Will Rogers, but he does not try to be:

Clarence Thomas Mocks Retirement Rumors: ‘I Don’t Have A Lot Of Stress, I Cause Stress.’

“People who will get very upset if someone said all blacks look alike are really comfortable saying all blacks ought to think alike,” Thomas reportedly said.

“If you said that blacks should not be allowed to go a library, you’d be against that,” he said. “If you said that blacks couldn’t read certain books in the library, you would say that’s wrong.” “But now we are so comfortable saying that blacks can’t hold some of the ideas in some of the books in the library,” Thomas added. “That’s absurd.”

And other quotes from the sane and insane:

Insight: “It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism while the wolf remains of a different opinion.” —William Ralph Inge (1860-1954)

Annals of the absurd: “If this country wasn’t racist, Stacey Abrams would be governor.” —Rep. Seth Moulton

Non compos mentis: “The president hasn’t just refused to condemn a foreign power that attacked our democracy. He’s also failed to protect the country’s voting systems against future attacks. He betrays his oath every day.” —Hillary Clinton, who colluded with a foreign power

Fearmongering: “If [the Georgia fetal heartbeat] law goes into effect … CNN might have to move. There’s a lot of young women who work at CNN who’ll be affected.” —Rep. Eric Swalwell

Braying Jenny: “I think the NRA is the worst organization in this country… They care more about their profits than the American people. They care more about selling guns to someone on the terror watch list or someone with grave mental illness or someone who has a violent criminal background.” —Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who supports Planned Parenthood

The BIG Lie: “Today our rate of childhood poverty is among the highest of any developed country in the world.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Intraparty fighting: “I fear that you would have a campaign without a lot of energy and excitement. Could Joe [Biden] beat Trump? Yeah, I think he could. I’m not saying he can’t. But I think we don’t want to make the same mistake that we made last time.” —Bernie Sanders

Socialist fantasies: “What we have been taught and what we have been conditioned [to believe] is that basic rights are a luxury and a privilege when they are not.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ....[Bill sez: this from a woman who just saw her first garbage disposal, was mystified, and called it “terrifying” and who was mesmerized to discover food magically comes from dirt.....and may run for President someday.]


Put a question mark at the end of a sentence,,, and watch Emery disappear.

WOW!! Two Repubs for a runoff? Elusive as Bigfoot. Sure a nice change from the endless two Jackass runoffs.


Bill. The coward of Broward was just on the magic box.
He must have been arrested, because he was wearing pretty stainless steal bracelets standing in front of the hanging judge.

Paul Emery


Are you really that stupid. In the primaries Nevada County voted Blue as I documented. It was the rest of the District one that went for Repubs. Sorry that's so hard for you to understand.

Don Bessee

Ah the comic styling of the pony tail of ignorance @553 -

A recent survey carried out by CNN revealed that the majority of Americans predict President Donald Trump will win a second term in 2020.

The survey, conducted with SSRS, A random national sample of 1,006 adult respondents were surveyed for the poll between May 28 and 31 shows that 54 percent state their “best guess is that Trump will win the 2020 election,” while 41 percent believe he will be a one-term president. (41% that are still in denial)

The respondents were contacted via telephone and polled by a live interviewer. The poll has a sampling margin error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points and is larger for subgroups.

The stats show Americans are more confident about President Trump’s re-election chances than in December. Last year, 51 percent believed the president would be defeated in the next election.

CNN further notes: “Americans are slightly more apt to say Trump will win now than they were to say Barack Obama would win a second term in May 2011, in a survey conducted just after the death of Osama bin Laden (50% thought Obama would win in that poll).”

Here Paul Emery so you don't hurt yourself self-flagellating.

Bill Tozer

Oh Todd, throw the Dem’s lapdog a bone. Tell him a Republican lost in the recent election.

Speaking of losers, there is a man out there named Mr. Pelosi.

Speaking of Pelosi, I have to feel sorry for her. The members of her party as sooooo ignorant, she has to try to teach them what impeachment means. I am afraid it is uphill battle. Now, she has to school them on what “indict” means. She has not made it easier for herself. Now, she will have to explain to her flock what indictment means. She should stop using those big three syllable words.


Heck, we have been trying to teach them that indictment still means innocent until proven guilty. Even Mueller on his last presser went out of his way to remind people that all the Russians and Russian companies he indicted are innocent until proven guilty. Another lost cause.


Someone go to the Clinton school of Non-profit money laundering?
"House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings’s wife has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from her charity to her private for-profit organization, according to a previously undisclosed cost-sharing arrangement that multiple experts said raises red flags.

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’s charity, the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), paid her for-profit venture, Global Policy Solutions LLC, over $250,000 in “management fees” between 2013 and 2015, according to the charity’s audited financial statements covering those years. The management fees were paid in addition to a cost-sharing agreement where the charity pays for its share of equipment, personnel and other expenditures.
Rockeymoore Cummings’s charity is funded by companies with interests before her husband’s congressional committee, according to the Washington Examiner."


Looks like somebody is trying to keep the rank and file howler monkey democrats spun up………………



Bill Tozer

It’s a race to see who gets to gets there first! Impeachment hearings or the Barr big rock hammer. The Dems got their preliminary hearings being set up as I write these words of pose.Bringing in ole Nixon’s dirty lawyer Dean from the Deep Throat Days and flying in a bunch of psychiatrists as expert witnesses on Orange Man Bad’s mental fitness.

Who was it the other day that Trump said she makes Rosie O’Donnel look good and he (Orange Man Bad) owes her (Rosie the pig) an apology. What was her name? Some Hollywood washed up wack job. No, not Cher. Oh yeah. Bette Milder. I liked her when she took her “trash with flash” stage show in 78’ to the London Palladium and when the brutish hooligans called out for The Divine Miss M to show her tits, she instantly obligated. Yep, that Trump is plumb crazy. Thinking about apologizing to Rosie the Pig is nuts!

Everyone has pressure points. 0 would have never let them defend themselves in spite of our treaty. -

The potential sale included 108 General Dynamics Corp M1A2 Abrams tanks worth around $2 billion as well as anti-tank and anti-aircraft munitions, three of the sources said. Taiwan has been interested in refreshing its existing U.S.-made battle tank inventory, which includes M60 Patton tanks.

The congressional notifications included a variety of anti-tank munitions, including 409 Raytheon Co and Lockheed Martin Corp-made Javelin missiles worth as much as $129 million, two of the sources said.

The notifications also included 1,240 TOW anti-tank missiles worth as much as $299 million, one of the sources said. There were also 250 stinger missiles worth as much as $223 million in the notification, the source said.

Stingers are often used in portable anti-aircraft weapons systems.
Taiwan's Defence Ministry confirmed it had requested those weapons and that the request was proceeding normally.



Don Bessee

Here is a little something to make the trolls heads explode -



Don Bessee

TIFECTA! Americans kids FIRST!

Camarota, director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies, has found that every one-percent increase in the immigrant composition of American workers’ occupations reduces their weekly wages by about 0.5 percent. This means the average native-born American worker today has his weekly wages reduced by perhaps 8.5 percent because of current legal immigration levels.

Lisa Page. Long link. If interested, scroll way down to Brennan’s Role and the next section about FISA and White House knowledge. The Maltese Professor, the Turk with curves that you never forget pressing against George the Greek, and others were CIA, not FBI, IMHO. Please come to London, George my boy. Got tired out you paying no nevermind to what the Maltese Professor said to ya. If at first you don’t succeed, try again.

“Page noted that she remembered the letter sent by Reid, but seemed confused as to Brennan’s involvement and possible knowledge of the Steele dossier. Worth noting is that while some within the FBI likely had parts of the dossier in July, the counterintelligence investigative team didn’t receive it until mid-September during a trip to Rome, where they met personally with Steele.

AThe representative, who was clearly aware of the disparity in timing, focused on precisely how Brennan might have been aware of the dossier in August:

Unidentified Representative: “So what you’re saying is, is that you had no knowledge of these potential unverified memos prior to the middle part of September in your investigation?”

Page: “That is correct, sir.”

Rep.: “OK. So on Aug. 30, you and Peter are going back and forth, and you go, ‘Here we go.’ If you’ll look at 9:44:50 on August the 30th, you go, ‘Here we go.’ And it’s referencing [the New York Times report] ‘Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in the U.S. Vote and Seeks FBI Inquiry.’ Now, what happens is, and what I guess gives me a little bit of concern is, if you drop down, that if you drop down to the same day, August 30th, 9:45, it says, ‘The D’—which I assume means director—’said at the a.m. brief that Reid had called him and told him that he would be sending the letter.’

Page: “OK.”

Rep.: “So you get a brief that says, well, we got the letter, but it’s almost like it’s a coordinated effort between Harry Reid and the FBI director, because obviously, he’s briefing you.”

After a bit of back and forth, Page responded, “I don’t know what Harry Reid was told or why or what the purpose of Brennan [was.]”

The representative pressed on:

“Why would Director Brennan be aware of things that the FBI was not aware of at this particular point, when it actually would potentially involve, according to Peter Strzok’s word on January 10th of 2017, an unverified salacious set of memos?”

And then the big reveal:

Unidentified Representative: “We have documents that would suggest that in that briefing the dossier was mentioned to Harry Reid and then, obviously, we’re going to have to have conversations. Does that surprise you that Director Brennan would be aware [of the dossier]?”

Page: “Yes, sir. Because with all due honesty, if Director Brennan—so we got that information from our source, right? The FBI got this information from our source. If the CIA had another source of that information, I am neither aware of that nor did the CIA provide it to us if they did, because the first time we—”

Rep.: “We do know there are multiple sources.”

Page: “I do know that. I do know that the information ultimately found its way lots of different places, certainly in October of 2016. But if the CIA as early as August, in fact, had those same reports, I am not aware of—I’m not aware of that and nor do I believe they provided them to us, and that would be unusual.”
Page disclosed that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stu Evans was the person within the DOJ who was in charge of the entire FISA process, but notably, the FBI chose not to tell Evans that they had opened a counterintelligence investigation:

“We were so concerned about the fact that we were opening this investigation and we were so concerned about leaks that we were literally individually making decisions about who to tell and who not to tell, because we were trying to keep it so closely held.”

According to Page, the only DOJ official they told was Toscas, the deputy assistant attorney general in the National Security Division. Without forewarning to the FBI, Toscas informed Evans in August 2016—possibly earlier—of the FBI’s newly opened investigation.
Notably, Toscas reported to Carlin, the head of the NSD, whose actions before the FISA court in relation to his presentation of the government’s proposed 2016 Section 702 certifications, strongly suggest he was also aware of the FBI’s investigation. Carlin appears to have been aware of the FBI’s later FISA preparations, as well.

The congressional representative then asked the following question:

“What you’re saying is when the director briefed the White House 2 days prior to that, on August the 8th, or prepared for it, actually briefed him on the 10th, that it had nothing to do with any campaign. Even though George Toscas and Stu Evans knew about it.”

Normally, when a member of the FBI uses the word “director,” they would be referring to the FBI director. In this case, while not made absolutely clear in the transcript, it appears “director” refers to CIA Director John Brennan, who had been discussed in the preceding comments relating to Brennan’s briefing of Reid.

From Brennan’s congressional testimony, we know that he had briefed the White House at some point in early August 2016, prior to Aug. 11:

“In consultation with the White House, I personally briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in election to congressional leadership, specifically Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to Representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devon Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11 August and 6 September.”

Page responded to the question: “Sir, I would be shocked. I would truly be stunned to discover that the director had briefed the president on the substance of our investigation or even the existence of our investigation. I would be—I can’t say it didn’t happen, I wasn’t there, but I would be stunned to discover that.”

GOD BLESS OUR GREATEST GENERATION on this anniversary of D-Day. Watching the live dedication of the new Brit memorial. The President has left Shannon by helicopter to attend the events today.

Every family has a connection to the WWII victory and this commemorates the beginning of the end for the Nazi's.

God Bless our valiant D-Day Airmen, Paratroopers, Naval and assault troops. Taking a knee in prayer of thanks and for their generous souls that saved the world.

Lets not forget our troops across the world now in the war on terror that has gone on so long. You give us the freedom to tell the truth the masters of the universe would suppress.

Thank God we have so many of the greatest generation that are still able to be celebrated today. I am sure it is all lost on the dem socialists. Sad for their hater souls.

Don B 12:35 - Amen. It sickens me to see how ignorant the left is these days calling anyone they disagree with a NAZI or a fascist. On D Day they fought actual NAZIs.
The Allies faced an awful, bloody mess, but they persevered and won the war. One way we can try to thank them is to always be ready to stand up for the Constitution and our Republic.

….calling anyone they disagree with a NAZI or a fascist.

Without knowing the proper definition of either.

George Rebane

These pages are years of testimony that few on the Left know the meanings of the terms and labels they use. To them a word means what they want it to mean when they decide to use it. They don't even have a clue of the major bookends of the simple one-dimensional political spectrum - tyranny to anarchy. And when attempting to get realistic with a more highly-dimensioned political landscape, forget it.

"Are you really that stupid. In the primaries Nevada County voted Blue as I documented. It was the rest of the District one that went for Repubs. Sorry that's so hard for you to understand."

I assume by now you've discovered your error, Punch. A full 54% of votes cast in the primary in Nevada County went to GOP candidates, and I suspect the Democrat who got the largest single total, 40%, would not have fared well even in a County wide runoff with either of the top two GOP candidates. A plurality is not enough to win from a primary.

Now, that doesn't mean an active Democratic candidate that sounded less like a Baader-Meinhof Gang member would not have done better, just as a better candidate than Hilary Hodge would have knocked off Dan Miller in the supervisor race a year ago.

Notice I didn't ask if *you* were really that stupid. I didn't have to. Nevada County remains purple.

The article: Why did the Obama Administration ignore reports of Russian meddling?

“The DOJ has “an increasingly robust program that is focusing on foreign influence in our election process, with the FBI obviously taking the lead,” Barr told Crawford. But not enough was done in 2016, Barr acknowledged.

“Bob Mueller did some impressive work in his investigation, you know, identifying some of the Russian hackers and their influence campaign and you sort of wonder if that kind of work had been done starting in 2016, things could have been a lot different,” he said. Crawford replied, “It’s just hard to understand why it wasn’t taken more seriously.” Barr said.....

“With people warned as early as April 2016, “I’m wondering what, exactly, was the response to it if they were alarmed. Surely the response should have been more than just, you know, dangling a confidential informant in front of a peripheral player in the Trump campaign,” the attorney general told Crawford before she moved to another topic.

The article about the article:

There is much more, but you get the drift. Knowing that the Russians were carrying out a clumsy effort to sow dissension in connection with the election, Barack Obama and his minions may have chosen not to try to stop the Russian interference, but rather to rather to set up or frame Donald Trump and his campaign for “colluding” with it.

“I have thought there was no way the Russiagate scandal could get much worse, but now I suspect I was wrong. Another question occurs to me: reportedly, Hillary and her campaign advisers decided as early as the day after the election to blame her loss on Russian “meddling.” Did Hillary know that the Obama administration had laid the groundwork to set up the Trump campaign as complicit in the Russians’ dirty tricks? After all, she paid for the Steele dossier. It would have taken very little to clue her in to the fact that Obama administration minions, whom she probably knew well by virtue of her time as Secretary of State, had been spying on the Trump campaign with a view toward either trying to assure her victory, or disabling the incoming Trump administration in the unlikely event that he might win.“



OK... you are that stupid.

Please... write it once... 54% of the primary votes in Nevada County went to GOP candidates. Also, 60% of the votes cast went to someone besides the Baader-Meinhof Democrat.

54% red, 45% blue, makes what color, Paul?

@9:06 am
Todd, you are being quite charitable. :)
I recently got a notification that someone replied to my Union comment....from 8/2018, roflmao. Ten months ago. Unbelievable. Oh they are a looney bunch alright. Told me I am the perfect example of someone living in a bubble, not the fakenews media. Russia, Russia, Russia. Yeah, rightttttt.

Did you know, according to the Union ignorant commentators, that...

-George the Greek will get 6 months to 5 years and the drunken young man’s words were proof positive of the Trump Campaign colluding (conspiring) with Putin and the Tower is more proof (as if we need more proof) and the WA Compost and NYT are doing an excellent job digging into the truth and blah, blah, blah. You know the drill.
[For the record George the Greek got 11 days for saying the timeframe was the last week of March, 2016 instead of the first week of April, 2016....and George thought he was being absolutely truthful when he walked out of the FBI interview. Odd that George the Greek was never charged with collusion with the Russians or anything to do with Russia, lol. Neither did Carter Page. I erred on the side of caution and told those Hillary supporters on the Union that George would get 30 days, but I really thought he would get 2 weeks or less. A hill not worth defending] . Opps, just defended it.

Being a Lefty means never admitting you are wrong.
My favorite quote of late is this one: “As the Mueller Report details, the Trump campaign welcomed Russia’s help.” Nadler. Welcomed Russia’s help!!! They welcomed it!!!! It a fact. Righttttt.

So, I have to wonder what all those experts and popinjays quoting the unhinged Enemy of the People and the Botox Drunk on the Union comment section think about these apples?

“For example, the DNC claimed in their lawsuit that Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos told multiple people on the campaign what Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud had told him – “that the Russians had ‘thousands of emails’ that could harm Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.” In the end, the Mueller report stated that neither Papadopoulos, nor anyone who interacted with him on the campaign, could remember such information being shared. But here’s the kicker, from the Mueller report: “No documentary evidence, and nothing in the email accounts or other communications facilities reviewed by the Office, shows that Papadopoulos shared this information with the Campaign.” Yet the DNC claimed it had, or would have, such evidence of Papadopoulos’ interactions.”

Or this:

“In another example, the DNC lawsuit claimed the infamous Trump Tower meeting resulted in Trump campaign officials accepting help from the Russians (who were actually working with Democrat opposition research firm Fusion GPS). The lawsuit claimed that Russian government officials “used the meeting to tell members of the Trump Campaign about the documents it had stolen from the DNC, including trade secrets” and “members of the Campaign blessed a plan in which Russia would continue stealing similar documents and disseminate the documents it already had to the public.”

“Again, the Mueller report found this to be untrue. The report found that the meeting lasted about 20 minutes and involved discussions of alleged “funds derived from illegal activities in Russia [that] were provided to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats,” and “a critique of the origins of” the Magnitsky Act, which “imposed financial and travel sanctions on Russian officials and that resulted in a retaliatory ban on adoptions of Russian children.” Further, the Mueller report didn’t find evidence the meeting ever included a discussion of Clinton’s hacked emails or stolen DNC documents.


Todd, “looney” is one way of putting it. To be charitable, I will use the term “goofy”, not stupid. :)

Paul Emery

. Who got the most votes in the Nevada County Primary Gregory Name and Party.


The former Green Libertarian (tm) has abandoned that label and has gone full Blue (or Red, as AOC prefers to say).

Paul NEEDS Nevada County to be Blue (ummm, meaning red) and will focus on the plurality winner (meaningless win) because he NEEDS to. There was one and only one active Democrat in the primary, and there were four GOP candidates, which split the GOP votes. Primaries take the place of the old smoke filled rooms where party leaders would select THE candidate for the ballot.

Paul... Nevada County... the primary for the State Senate seat... 54% GOP, 46% DEM. Yes or no?

The uncomfortable truth and team 0 flushed out a ton of excellent flag officers -

Gorka shared an anecdote from his time as an instructor at the Defense Department’s Joint-Professional Military Education (JPME) system.
“Political correctness infected our general officer class,” estimated Gorka. “I remember an exercise that I ran, it was a six-month special course for lieutenant colonels and colonels who have the [military occupational specialty] — the designation ‘strategist’ — so these are guys whose job it is to think strategically in the bowels of the Pentagon.”

As a JPME instructor, Gorka directed his class to determine the “primary threat” to America, and develop a “grand strategy” to address it.

“This was six years into the Obama administration. … More than half of the teams of colonels and half-colonels said that climate change and global warming is the primary threat to the United States. That’s where we are. I personally lost it.”

Subversion of meritocracy within the military in pursuit of “political correctness” pushed by “woke generals,” said Gorka, compromises nationals security. “These things have real-life consequences,” he stated. “When you dilute the conditions, the standards for passing Marine Corps basic training so that women can pass, that impacts combat effectiveness.”

Combating those seeking to destroy Western Civilization is an eternal endeavor, said Gorka.

We are truly independent from China," Lynas Chief Executive Amanda Lacaze told the Argus U.S. Specialty Metals conference in Chicago on Thursday. "We aim to remain a leader in the rare earths market. There will be significant growth outside China so long as customers are confident in supply."

Lynas last month signed a memorandum of understanding to build a rare earth processing facility in Texas with privately held Blue Line Corp.

Lacaze described the project as a key for Lynas to fill a "gap" in the U.S. rare earths market.
"We know that being close to our customers helps us to innovate with them," said Lacaze, a former telecom marketing executive who became the company's CEO in 2014.
"We never want our customers to maintain a relationship with another supplier."

Nevada County made no choice as to who would be the next State Senator... that takes 50% +1 of the vote. The expected result from the primary is to choose the two for runoff and votes from Nevada County have no more impact than any other area in the district.

54% of Nevada County votes were for one of the four Republicans, 46% were for one of the two Democrats.

We're purple. Might even be turning Red a'gin. I don't know and neither do you.

The Mexico Daily News reported on Wednesday that new checkpoints on Mexico’s southern border have been set up and security officials have raided hotels and guesthouses in Tapachula and Chiapas near the Guatemalan border.


The Mexican official and the U.S. official said the countries are negotiating a sweeping plan to overhaul asylum rules across the region, a move that would require Central Americans to seek refuge in the first foreign country they set foot upon after fleeing their homeland.
Under such a plan, the United States would swiftly deport Guatemalan asylum seekers who set foot on U.S. soil to Mexico. And the United States would send Honduran and Salvadoran asylum applicants to Guatemala, whose government held talks with acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan last week.

“The proposed parade presents itself as an alternative to the annual Gay Pride Parade, describing itself as an opportunity to "celebrate heterosexuality." The group behind the event, Super Happy Fun America, hopes to conduct the parade on the last Saturday of August and to use the same path as the pro-LGBT event.”

The right-leaning Lahren had a far different take, calling Boston's pushback on the event more evidence that it's "open season" on straight white males. "You can be proud of about anything these days, so long as it's not straight white male or, God forbid, conservative," she said on FOX Nation Thursday, as reported by The Hill.

We knew this day will come and its going to make everyone question every video and who is going to know what is real?

Imagine, however, if that editor could modify video using a text transcript. Much like word processing, the editor could easily add new words, delete unwanted ones or completely rearrange the pieces by dragging and dropping them as needed to assemble a finished video that looks almost flawless to the untrained eye.

A team of researchers from Stanford University, Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Princeton University and Adobe Research created such an algorithm for editing talking-head videos – videos showing speakers from the shoulders up

The board’s investigation into Omar found several violations. It noted that while none of Omar’s legal expenses had been for her divorce, she had spent $1,500 on legal expenses related to her personal taxes that were not sufficiently related to the campaign. Furthermore, the board found that some of her out-of-state travel expenses were not related to her legislative duties. She has been ordered to pay reimbursements to her campaign, to file amended campaign finance statements, and to pay a civil fine of $500 to the state.

The board’s report also noted that Omar and Ahmed Hirsi, her current husband, “filed joint tax returns for 2014 and 2015.” That could add fuel to persistent allegations that Omar had been married to two men at the same time — one of whom, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, City Journal noted in 2016, was rumored (though never proven) to be her brother.

Insight: “Statism is a system of institutionalized violence and perpetual civil war. It leaves men no choice but to fight to seize political power — to rob or be robbed, to kill or be killed. … Statism survives by looting; a free country survives by production.” —Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

Friendly fire: “I have to tell you, as a liberal Democrat, I’m appalled at Nancy Pelosi. The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system — and calling for the imprisonment of the president of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense — it’s just outrageous. You can’t just target a president and say, ‘We want to see him in prison,’ without producing evidence.” —Alan Dershowitz

Non compos mentis: “There are individuals in this city who have returned from prison who cannot find a job, who are not educated. In those instances those individuals are forced to commit violent acts.” —Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall explaining the increase of violent crime under her watch

That ship has sailed: “I hope that you … stand up for a gun-free society.” —Rep. Lucy McBath

Flip-flopper: “I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code.” —Joe Biden acquiescing to Hyde Amendment haters

D'oh! “I am told explicitly that it is Joe Biden himself who says. ‘This is my conviction and I’m not changing it. This is how I have felt and this is how I have voted for my four decades in public service, and I’m not changing, despite the fact that the party clearly has changed.’” —CNN’s Dana Bash

Braying Jackass: “Bravo to @JoeBiden for doing the right thing and reversing his longstanding support for the Hyde Amendment. It takes courage to admit when you’re wrong, especially when those decisions affect millions of people. Now do the Iraq War.” —Rep. Seth Moulton

And last… “Joe Biden held the same position on the Hyde Amendment for 46 years. He flipped on it in 24 hours of fringe leftists attacking him.” —The Daily Wire’s Harry Khachatrian

'Florida Woman Stabs Herself Because She Was ‘Tired of Living in Trump’s Country.’

when you refer to the dumbing down of America and the failure of our educational system would you agree Trump is an example when he tweets this:

"For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!"

apparently Trump doesn't know Mars is a planet not a moon.


George Rebane

PaulE 139pm - Our most efficient path to the moon is via our own moon. Boosting out of our moon's relatively shallow gravity well is much easier than boosting out of earth orbit directly, and therefore out of earth's much deeper gravity well. So indeed, planning for a sustainable route to Mars involves our moon being part of it. Many of us think that establishing a permanent presence on the moon first is the proper way to proceed to making all interplanetary trips. And in any case, we will be in a race to do that with the Chinese and Russians, who also have their eye on the moon and its known (e.g. water) and yet to be discovered resources. Wasting time and money to build a new huge rocket to carry a manned payload from Earth orbit to Mars that is capable of returning the crew to Earth is a PR stunt with little early profit. First making the moon our permanent home has everything going for it.

The lamestream, of course, neither understands this nor wants to give Trump credit for understanding that strategy.

Paul Emery

So George, you are saying that Trumps tweet is an attempt to express that "strategy," as you word it? If that is true than you must at least admit Trump is illiterate in writing that way. Is that not a sign of the dumbing down of America when our own President can't put in writing such a concept? Besides its your view that NASA must establish a major presence on the moon in order to render support for Mars exploration and that is quite the contrary to what Trump says when he writes "NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon" Huh I don't get it!!!

You should get a job being Trumps clean up man when he says something stupid which he does everyday.

Is Mother Teresa hate speech? Ted Cruz asks, “Yes or no?”

Do you believe Trump to be a literate person?


The TROLL Emery sure comes up with some stupid shit.
More literate than your boy "O"... Who could never form a complete sentence without his trusty teleprompter. And your have the gumption to question Trump?
Yup,, Emery IS smoking dope these days.


More literate than you, Punch.

Paul Emery

Trump is more literate than O Walt? Here is a definition of literate for you. A definitional of literate is "able to read and write " It is well known that Trump doesn't read. Here's quotes from Author Michael Wolff':

"I am apparently not the only one who has questioned the president's ability to focus on the written word. "Trump didn't read," Wolff writes. "He didn't really even skim. If it was print, it might as well not exist. Some believed that for all practical purposes he was no more than semiliterate. Others concluded that he didn't read because he didn't have to . . . He was postliterate — total television." But "Fire and Fury" reveals that White House staff and Cabinet members believed Trump's intellectual challenges went well beyond having a limited reading list: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called him an "idiot," Cohn dismissed him as "dumb," national security adviser H.R. McMaster considered him a "dope," and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson infamously concluded that the commander in chief was a "moron."

Yes, through the years I have heard some negative things about Mother Teresa. Not being a Catholic, it is fingernails on the blackboard to me when someone is referred to as a Saint. Saint Peter, Saint so and so. I feel stronger about the infallibly of any person. We all have feet of clay, no matter what pedestal others put them on.

Be that as it may, the question remains. Is a quote from Mother Teresa hate speech? Is that quote from Mother Teresa hate speech? Of course not. It is obvious that Ted Cruz will never get an answer to his query from that group. Consistent standards would nice, be it a quote from Mel Brooks or Stalin.

The problem I see is the “community values” like on college campuses and social media. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The “community values” often more than not are in direct conflict with the 1st Amendment as of late.

Cruz in the spotlight again.

Sigh," replied Cruz. "This individual claims to be a 'journalist.' Then he throws a fit & demands that YouTube CENSOR views he doesn’t like."

On Tuesday, YouTube conceded that Crowder's videos "don’t violate" any of their policies after "conducting an in-depth review of the videos flagged" by Maza. But the platform reversed course after the activist threw a Twitter fit, accusing YouTube of being anti-LGBT and encouraging LGBT employees at the company to "walk out" in protest.

"Update on our continued review–we have suspended this channel’s monetization," YouTube capitulated on Wednesday. "We came to this decision because a pattern of egregious actions has harmed the broader community and is against our YouTube Partner Program policies.”


Aha! Hit them in the pocket book, lispy. Lot easier than going to court to prove you don’t have a lisp.


Like I said. More literate than your boy "O",, OR you.

Well look at you.. You give people crap for using given "definitions". You know when you bitched about the definition of treason. You came up with your own.
DAMN your pathetic.

Still President, will get reelected. Nope, Impeachment ain't going to happen.
Go have another bong hit.
