Well worth the read. Right up Gregory’s alley. SCOTUS ruling. Love the reasoning. Outstanding. The Constitution does not stop where your being offended begins.

“Justice Samuel Alito, authoring the Supreme Court's majority opinion in the recent case, explained that "established, religiously expressive monuments, symbols, and practices" are now afforded "a strong presumption of constitutionality." That is good news to the citizens of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.

“That seems to be precisely the point Justice Neil Gorsuch had in mind when writing in his concurring opinion to The American Legion that "what matters when it comes to assessing a monument, symbol, or practice isn't its age but its compliance with ageless principles."

“Such principles, he suggests, are timeless: "The Constitution's meaning is fixed, not some good-for-this-day-only coupon, and a practice consistent with our nation's traditions is just as permissible whether undertaken today or 94 years ago."


“Among those timeless principles is that the Constitution restrains government — including judges and justices — from overruling community sentiments by ordering the destruction of religious symbols in public.

That's how our democratic process works. And that's what The American Legion decision protects. Rather than allow judges to force the removal, destruction, or censoring of religiously expressive monuments, symbols, or practices, The American Legion line of cases safeguards the history of our country, the text of our Constitution, and the simplicity of a self-governed local community.”

So 0 let this happen to us -

The combined effect of ongoing wars in the Middle East, budget austerity, underinvestment in advanced military capabilities and the scale of America’s liberal order-building agenda has left the US armed forces ill-prepared for great power competition in the Indo-Pacific,” the authors concluded.

The report warned that too many American politicians and foreign policy officials have an “outdated superpower mindset” because they believe China would never act aggressively because the long-term consequences would include a horrific world war.

In truth, Chinese strategy has focused on limiting American power projection in the Pacific while building up the enormous missile inventory of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The imbalance of forces has reached the point where the PLA could pull off a quick disarming strike followed by a clear, difficult-to-reverse victory.

In other words, a swarm of missiles would knock out key U.S. and allied assets in the Western Pacific within a matter of hours. The PLA would quickly move to secure its objectives, establish a foothold on the territory it desires, and then turn the logic of deterrence on its head by asking if the U.S. is prepared to suffer heavy loses in a protracted war to reverse those gains. According to the report.

https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/08/19/report-chinese-missiles-could-wipe-out-u-s-allied-pacific-bases-opening-hours-conflict/

Which thanks to putin we got to do this below because the chi coms are not in the treaty and own this capability and we need to have long range conventional strike capability in the vast environs of the pacific. We have been busy sharing our toys with all our friends, especially strategic defense.

https://www.defenseone.com/threats/2019/08/us-just-launched-long-outlawed-missile-welcome-post-inf-world/159278/?oref=d-topstory

We have lots of toys that just need one section changed out to go waaaaaaay downrange just like the chi coms can. I would also suspect that Japan will be a happy partner to give them a credible long range conventual strike deterrent.

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2019/08/19/us-conducts-1st-ground-launched-cruise-missile-test-after-inf-treaty-pullout.html

Tie it all together and if we see a layered offensive wave from the chi coms everybody will flush the counters from low level to the higher trajectory and the arc.

Our teams non-nuclear counter strikes from Sea and Land will happen right away. The small countries like Great Brittan have built their sea and air assets to be a component of US fleets as have by the other significant players on our team.

Six times Biden described major events in his life that never happened

All 6 are doozies. The first one looks like Biden was in the copter as Brian Williams and trying to up one on Hillary when she was ducking sniper bullets with head down running across the runway (as she greeted school girls all lined up and received flowers from the children as the band played on). On my, Sleep Joe sure can spin some whoppers.

“If you want to know where al Qaeda lives, you want to know where bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me,” said Biden. “Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are.” In another speech, he claimed al Qaeda is "in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan … where my helicopter was recently forced down.”

“He later referred to “the superhighway of terror between Pakistan and Afghanistan where my helicopter was forced down.”

“John McCain wants to know where bin Laden and the gates of Hell are? I can tell him where,” said Biden.

“The helicopter actually landed to wait out a snowstorm, according to the Associated Press.

“Biden, John Kerry, and Chuck Hagel were on a Senate junket in Afghanistan when their helicopter crossed paths with the storm, according to reports. The pilot landed as a precaution, and a U.S. military convoy picked up the senators and took them to the main American airbase.

“Other than getting a little cold, it was fine,” Kerry told the AP when asked about the incident. “We were going to send Biden out to fight the Taliban with snowballs,” he joked..

2-6 are not bad either.

Don’t mess with Joe. He is one tough mean sumbitch.

“Hey Joe, where are you going with that gun in your hand? I say, hey hey Joe, where are going with that gun in your hand?”

“I am going to shoot my old lady, caught her messing around with another man.”

Oh my, I cannot believe my eyeballs. They make it too easy. Unbelievable. The Brotherhood Twins just walked right into Trump’s parlor with that tweet. Mercy.

“Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib continued their attack against President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by posting a cartoon drawn by an artist who has created anti-Semitic imagery and mocked victims of the Holocaust.”

“In 2006, Latuff came in second in Iran’s International Holocaust Cartoon Contest, which is a thing that exists, in case you thought the TL couldn’t get any worse.”

Latuff defended his use of the Holocaust to assail Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, even while acknowledging that the two are not exactly the same.”

https://nypost.com/2019/08/19/rashida-tlaib-ilhan-omar-share-cartoon-by-artist-accused-of-anti-semitic-imagery/

As another source put it:

STEVE ISRAEL: BY RETWEETING AN ANTI-SEMITIC HOLOCAUST CARTOON OMAR, TLAIB ‘PLAY RIGHT INTO DONALD TRUMP’S HANDS’
‘They play right into Donald Trump’s hands and give him a victory that he should not have’

Well, By Golly, That Trump sure knows how to draw a cartoon himself, picking up the crayons and drew a splendid picture of the New Face Of The Democrat Party. Hint: they are women of color. Another hint. AOC is being left out of this party.

With TDS running rampant, I bet Orange Man Bad gets the Dems to defend Hamas.

For your reading pleasure:

Trumps strong support numbers have shrunk to 30% on Rasmussen, Todd and Gregoies favorite poll. Thats the lowest it's been since March of last year. Bad news indeed . I'm sure Trump and the Circle of Jerks will call it a fake poll but what else is new.

Rasmussen has Trump at 44 up 54 down. I am unsure if the poll watcher is understanding what he is weeing?

Hope your pants are off while you are weeing. Maybe you should go back to bed and start the day over.

"JP Morgan Chase assessed that Trump's tariffs on China will cost American consumers $1,000 a household."

How's that tax break working out for you? US Steel continues to dump its employees. Steel tariffs were a great idea.

The problem is your inability to see the big picture Todd. The millions of people who never saw any appreciable tax break are still paying for Trump's tariffs.

How come you aren't out protesting in "the march". All of two guys "marching". Saw one of the guys slogging up the grade out of the North Yuba. He had a van and a car with a trailer support team. Signs, banners, flags and two guys with rifles slung over their fluorescent green t shirts waiting for the "marcher" at the top of the grade. It was a construction zone and the traffic was thick. The guys with the rifles were getting a lot of middle fingered salutes. Mostly families camping and mountain bikers who didn't relate well with the militia mentality. It didn't appear they were getting any closer to being able to suction dredge the river. Too stupid to understand that it was exactly people like them that got themselves kicked out of the river. Typical head banging T baggers.

Warren Catches Up To Biden In Iowa After Rain-Dancing Around Pocahantas Lies



....and she has learned how to be "Hillary Lite" it seems!


“Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes,” the Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate said at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa, without specifying exactly what she was apologizing for.

“I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations we have had together,” she said.


Well after that heartfelt admission, I'm going to go get me a beer!

Thanks for verifying Trumps slump in the Rasmussen Poll Todd. It's your favorite poll so you can't put it down. Actually the numbers I cited were the Strongly Approve numbers that are the lowest since March 2018. Yes, major Trump slump. Here's the link Todd. Check out Strongly approve to verify my numbers.

“Well after that heartfelt admission, I'm going to go get me a beer!”

Have a beer for me as well, Fish.

Warren apologized for her “mistake” and for the “harm she has caused.”

What harm is that? Who was injured because Warren lied about being part Indian? No one, except perhaps a few law professors who may have lost out on jobs because certain law schools wanted to say they had an Indian prof on board.

Warren said her claim of Indian status caused “confusion” about what it means to be a tribal citizen. “Tribes and only tribes” determine tribal citizenship, she now says. Well, tell me something new. No shit, Sherlock. Warren acts like she just discovered this, lol.

But no one was ever confused about this. Thus, there was no need for Warren to apologize for causing harm or confusion.

Warren owed an apology because she lied, and maintained her lie for decades in order to advance her career. Her apology didn’t acknowledge the lie.

Warren tried to cover up the evasiveness of her apology with the abjectness of her tone. Pathetic.
