......and for those idiots (myself included) who thought Trump couldn’t “order” companies out of China 🇨🇳!

From the always invaluable Instapundit.....


”SO A LOT OF PEOPLE ON FACEBOOK ARE SAYING THAT OF COURSE PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN’T “ORDER” A PRIVATE BUSINESS TO GET OUT OF CHINA. In fact, he almost certainly can do just that, so long as he makes the right declaration. Under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, better known in the trade as IEEPA, presidents have a virtual blank check on regulating economic transactions with other countries, so long as they declare a national emergency — which can include one based on economic threats.

I’m not saying this is a good idea, but the people saying that “Trump’s an idiot, presidents can’t do that” are displaying their ignorance. Presidents absolutely can do that. Note that at present Trump is spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt, by tweeting the order but NOT making the declaration that would be required to give it effect. It’s thus a shot across the bow — a metaphor that fits this quite well, really.

See also this earlier post, discussing an Obama action, and U.S. v. Spawr Optical, a disturbing but unexceptional example of judicially endorsed presidential power over international trade.”

What a stupid comment fish. Even Trump would never do that because of the uproar it would cause therefore he's lying when he says he's going to do it. Typical gabble from our Liar in Chief.

Of course you would support it, we all know that, so what's the point of your argument anyway?

WTF? Oh great pony tail of ignorance could you please tell us hoi poli what the hell 'gabble' means?

Bessee, did you graduate from the same high school as Todd? Gabble is a common word.

fish-
You are nothing but a mindless windbag. All your talk about Trump ordering US companies out of China is hot air reeking of anchovies. Walmart has over 100 stores in China and a massive infrastructure for importing Walmart branded product from China. Do you think Walmart shareholders (American taxpayers and voters) are going sit placidly by as Herr Trump "orders" an immediate ceases and desist for all of WalMart business in China?

Let the fun begin!
LIBS are probably hard at work manufacturing accusations, and training witnesses and "victims" for ANY possible (no matter how remote) judge to replace RBG. They won't let the embarrassment of stupidity happen twice like with the Kavanaugh

OH,, just what will the Proggys try and come up with this time?
What photoshopped images? (Is Doughy already on the payroll?)

Bill Tozer

Ok, a topic not discussed in great detail or at length here: The NeverTrumpers, I.e., the group without a constituency. Even contains a photo of Robert Crass’s loverboy.

“The prominence of Never Trump pundits in liberal outlets is mostly fueled by a wistful longing for the days of the principled conservative who always lost.”

“This doesn’t mean that all of these conservatives supporting Trump think he is the greatest president of all time, the only one who can save us, or some great moral leader. Some of Trump’s core supporters feel that way, but most don’t. Most see politics as transactional, and given the choice between Trump’s eccentricities and the Democrats’ extreme and radical policy positions, they quite reasonably prefer the former.

“I myself was a Never Trumper prior to his election in 2016. Like most conservative writers, I decided the responsible way to go forward after his victory was to call balls and strikes. Within about a year, I was confident that Trump’s presidency was not the existential crisis I had feared. But for a handful of prominent conservatives, that was not an option. Jennifer Rubin, Max Boot, Bill Kristol, Rick Wilson, and Tom Nichols, among others, continue to believe Trump is an existential threat.

“There are Never Trumpers for whom I still have a lot of respect, others less so, but on the whole they tend to be a pretty accomplished group and are certainly entitled to their opinions. This in part explains why media outlets give them so much coverage, even though they represent the views of so few conservatives. But it’s not the only reason. The bigger reason is that they give hope to a left very worried that the right will not go back to being a docile political force with a tendency to get bulldozed.“

I see none of the proggy mafia bothered to answer my post about Barack Hussien and his collusion with the Russians, how about this?

Obama just laid out about 15 million for a place on the water in Martha's vineyard. I thought the oceans were going to rise in ten years or so. Seems to be a bad investment on his part. Think he has flood insurance on the place.

And add this 8 bedroom, nine bath, house to Al Gore's 28,000 sq. ft. place in Tennessee and Bernie's three homes and his flying around on a private jet. Heck, Barack's place will be under water in probably seven years. Two-faced Hypocrites all of you, Emery, Jiggy AVMAn, Robert Cross...did I forget anyone?

Bill Tozer

After reading a lot of what happened in the post-Ted Stevens case regarding sanctions of dirty prosecutors (and other cases where the Supreme Court unanimously overturned a guilty verdict), it saddens me to say nothing meaningful will happen to those in our institutions that conspired to bring forth the Russian Collusion Soft Coup. The cabal will walk unscathed. “Nothing hurt but my pride”, and some minor embarrassment. Just going by history.

At least one young prosecutor in the Stevens case had the decency to hang himself afterwards. Withholding exculpatory evidence is part of obstruction of Justice, not to mention lying to the court or presenting false evidence. Heck, withholding evidence is part of obstruction of justice AND perjury. The sin of omission. The other two sanctioned by the Justice Department in the Stevens case got only a bad mark on their file and then had an Administrate Court toss those “sanctions” out. And we haven’t even touched on the now defunct Arthur Anderson in the Enron case and.....anyway,

Andrew McCarthy on two-tiered Justice system.

Poor Obama. Left the WH and bought a mega mansion in CA. Now, his 9,000 square foot house in DC is just too cramped and it gets hot in DC in the summer. And Martha’s Vineyard? I know, they don’t want t impose on friends who have mansions in Martha’s Vineyard or lease a mega beach house for the summer or get a nice hotel room for a couple of weeks to enjoy their summer vacation. Why not just buy a little place so we don’t intrude on our friends....a little place with a little mere 29 acres of beachfront property.

After listening to Bull Maher trash David Koch all I can say is he is lower than a snakes prostate. What a dirtbag. Emery, of course, will love it. Regarding RGB. I am sorry for her illness and if she does pass FISH is totally correct. he fun will be the meltdown of the liberals and I can hardly wait.

Jig Wiggly

I think Trump was a hell of a lot lower defiling John McCain during his illness and after he passed.

BTW please tell us where snakes keep their prostate Todd. You are an imbecile. I think we learned about the development of prostate glands in jr high school; maybe before that. Hint, you'll never find a prostate on a snake, no matter how long you keep poking around in there. I wonder what you did find?

Bill Tozer

Now now Todd. No puffery. However, while you are at it, plant that flag of superior moral authority on the top of the mountain for all to see. Like playing Capture the Flag in the rugged terrain. Yank that flag out of the Lefties’s hands and wave it for all to see. The banner means something to them. Means a lot. It’s all they got.

“.....Spaniards were emerging from a narrow pass among the cliffs … they came suddenly upon an extended plain. Here to their amazement, they found an enormous army” arrayed against the few hundred Spaniards who had just limped into a final ambush. Abbot describes the Aztec forces as “a living ocean of armed men,” numbering 200,000 strong.

Cornered, and out of options, Cortez decided to lead his men into a final, suicidal charge against the overwhelming odds. Cortez led his rag-tag forces in a frontal assault, mustering all the speed he could out of his wounded, exhausted, and starving forces.

Before the Aztecs could drown them with superior numbers, Cortez’s forces reached the Aztec’s blood-red banner and he seized it. Cortez had fought enough battles with the Aztecs to recognize the banner was a sacred symbol of Aztec authority. With their banner gone, the Aztecs lost morale and panicked, breaking into disorganized chaos. With the chain of command destroyed, Cortez seized one of the most audacious military victories in human history.”

So RGB was treated for pancreatic cancer. The survival rate for the first year alone is a mear 20%. Yet the "doc.s" say she's cured. So who are they trying to fool?
But give LIBS all the false hopes they can use.

Walt -RGB was treated for and cured of pancreatic cancer in 2009. There go your stats right out yer polyp peppered colon. She was just treated for a NET. Check the stats for that instead of farting out about "pancreatic cancer".

Someone wishing that a person's death was painful and that they suffered is a hell of a lot different that talking of the kaos that will ensue with the proggys after their death.

Typical proggy mafia who talks that crap but won't talk about Obama's Russian collusion, or how the Dems won't debate climate change when their leaders own homes that cast some of the largest carbon footprints and they and the Hollywood elite fly around in their private jets spewing exhaust and (Horrors!!!!) chem trails.

"Progressives dropped the ball". Explain what you might mean?

I guess if you didn't bother to read The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Goldberg, or watch the movie RBG, or just look her up on Wikipedia you could be excused for believing "somebody" dropped the ball and was ignorant of her pancreatic cancer in 2009. I don't think that ignorant "somebody" in a progressive.

Jig 357pm - Most people reading your 313pm would think that you were scolding Walt for citing RBG's current cancer treatment as being in gross error - i.e. reporting something that was settled ten years ago. What is your take on the reports of RGB's just completed cancer treatments?

George Rebane

re JoeK 358pm - Mr Tozer, behave yourself ;-)

Jig Wiggly

George- You are not very good when it comes to describing sets of people. How many times do you ascribe a thought or action to "progressives" (meaning, literally, every single one) when you should more accurately be saying some or most progressives. Who do you mean by "most" people in your 4:07? You would be more accurate to say "many mentally challenged people such as Walt, Todd or Bessee" might erroneously come to some far fetched conclusion because it falls into their strange belief system.

Jig 425pm - You are indeed a gem. In these discussions I use the broad labels 'progressives', 'liberals', 'Democrats', ... in the same sense that you use the opposite appellations when referring to or describing someone generally on the Right. That you continue to lecture on things like "describing sets of people" when you apparently have no idea how such are used in common discourse (including by you). Does that mean that you are still defending your moral high ground?

But as I have remarked before, your hiding your identity under a sack is clearly the proper strategy for the copy you deliver. Doing it under your own name would indeed be unwise.

Well jigger go do business with the fat kid in N. Korea.
See what happens. Use that excuse of yours.
Freedom isn't absolute. Forget we are a nation of laws?
It's was your boy "O" who loved to pick and choose just which ones to follow and/or enforce.
Trump has the law on his side. He sure knows how to get you and yours going.
Yet you haven't said one negative word about Comrade Burnie's
stated nationalization of targeted businesses and corps. (gov. seizure and operation... You know, Putin style shit.)
Have a good look at Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977.
It states
"Title II of Pub.L. 95–223, 91 Stat. 1626, enacted October 28, 1977, is a United States federal law authorizing the president to regulate international commerce after declaring a national emergency in response to any unusual and extraordinary threat to the United States which has its source in whole or substantial part outside the United States"

One name. Joe Walsh. Sounds like he's in for the running and will go independent if need be. If Trump is smart, he'll start working on a pardon package from the good Mr Walsh. Or another "suicide".

Gregory

"The five stages of grief in terminal illness are chronologically: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance."

It sounds like Jiggly is working through to the final stage.

Walt

That's how ya' do it jigger. Can't hold up your end of the discussion,, act like Paul and change the subject.
Can't tell us how economic powers act DOESN'T apply to China?

So explain what Trump is proposing is actually socialism
and dictatorism, when all he is doing is looking out for the best interests of the U.S., unlike past Presidents that have screwed over the American worker in the name of cheap shit imports.

Hey Gregory I was hoping \you might analize that old lawyer Dickie Sciaroni's screed on economics and history in the Union. See if he is right.

Joe Walsh... Now isn't he the one who broke up the Eagles?
President? Not a even a LIB's chance at winning the election.

Jig Wiggly

Walt you mule. Walsh doesn't need to win the election, he just needs to split the vote. A Tea Party Pubber who despises Trump running as an independent is a great idea. Doncha think? He's come within an inch of already saying he'd rather see a lib in the White House than Trump. I'll contribute to his campaign.

“The problem with this harebrained scheme being promoted by the Democrats is that it attempts to circumvent the U.S. Constitution and the process to properly amend the Constitution. In order to amend the Constitution, three-quarters of the states must ratify a proposed constitutional amendment that has already passed by either a two-thirds vote by Congress or via a constitutional convention called for by the states.

“Democrats know that they cannot get three-quarters of the states to ratify a constitutional amendment to abolish the Electoral College. As such, rather than give up on their desire to abolish the Electoral College, they instead have decided to change the rules on how the Constitution can be amended.

“The good news is that the 10th Circuit, with its ruling on Tuesday, has telegraphed the beginning of the end of the Democrats' latest scheme to end the Electoral College. If a state cannot require that its delegates vote in accordance with its own state's popular vote, it will therefore also never be able to require that its delegates vote in accordance with the nation's popular vote.”

Thanks Bill. Excellent, unbiased piece of work from Koch's State Policy Network. It is amazing that some people actually treat this as fact rather than propaganda.

Well Barron, please do due diligence and dispute Duke’s findings. Or run to Snoopes to find out more about the documents. Or ask Bobbie Cross.

Probable Cause: Kalama the Dirty Cop’s charges against Planned Parenthood COULD be tossed out of court.

“It was Harris who ordered the search warrant against Daleiden in 2016 that his lawyers are now arguing was “served without probable cause and in bad faith,” and should therefore be thrown out.

“In the motion, Daleiden’s lawyers include email exchanges between Harris’s office and Planned Parenthood executives working together to obtain a search warrant for Daleiden’s unreleased videos, despite California laws protecting citizen journalists from these kinds of legal attacks. They also include evidence that the state’s own special investigative team did not believe they had probable cause to search and seize Daleiden’s property.”

" The first fissures emerged among G7 leaders on Sunday over how to deal with Iran, as U.S. President Donald Trump denied he had signed on to an agreement on giving France a leading role as a go-between with the world’s major democracies.
Trump had tried to play down tensions among Group of Seven (G7) leaders after an intimate dinner Saturday in the southwest French resort of Biarritz, but came out swiftly to dispute France’s claim that they had agreed to let President Emmanuel Macron deliver a message to Iran on their behalf."

Student Funds No Longer Tied Up By Cal State Administrators

“Back in 2017, California State University-San Marcos (CSU-SM) decided to use mandatory student activity fees in a way that produces patently unconstitutional outcomes: Students were compelled to subsidize speech with which they disagree but then denied the right to use a portion of the fees to promote a contrary viewpoint.

Perhaps the greatest injustice uncovered in this case involves the revelation that CSU-SM collects $1,300,000 in mandatory fees every year and skims $800,000 off the top to pay the salaries of its administrators. Thus, it seems that these mandatory fees are little more than job creation programs for bureaucratic activists who are probably otherwise unemployable. The problem is compounded by the fact that CSU-SM then illegally distributes the remaining half million dollars that is not going directly into their own pockets (hence the term "bureaucratic activists").

“The crux of the illegal distribution problem arose when Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) was given unbridled discretion to dole out the mandatory fees. Unsurprisingly, ASI then exercised this unbridled discretion to allocate the fees in a discriminatory manner. Specifically, ASI has favored them — both run by the administration.”

“In 2017, when the suit was filed, I predicted that their chokehold on the marketplace of ideas would soon be broken and that students at CSU-SM will eventually be granted the right to bring in their own speakers with opposing viewpoints. I stated unequivocally that CSU-SM had absolutely no chance of winning this lawsuit. And, now, my prediction has come true. A federal district court has ruled in favor of Nathan Apodaca, the brave Army veteran who served as the principal plaintiff for Students For Life.

“CSU-SM never had a chance of winning. By defending the indefensible, these petty administrators gave the impression that they enjoyed inflicting pain upon themselves for pleasure.”

It's not as if I didn't warn them.

Bill Tozer

Aha! Been waiting for a case that pits the 1st Amendment against community/State laws. This is one.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/08/federal-appeals-court-strikes-powerful-blow-for-free-speech-religious-freedom/

“One of the key constitutional questions of our time is whether the First Amendment will retain its supremacy and potency even as nondiscrimination rules and regulations expand in scope and reach. In this case, the Eight Circuit answered answered with an emphatic “Yes,” and it did so through a majority opinion that provided a clear roadmap for future courts and future controversies.........”

“If the court did find that nondiscrimination laws can even compel speech, it would invert the constitutional order. It would relegate the First Amendment to second-class status — less potent than a mere state regulation. Indeed, this is the argument that much of the legal Left has been making for years. They view First Amendment–based arguments against public-accommodation laws or other nondiscrimination statutes as a form of special pleading by religious Americans, a request to be exempt from the fair and just rules that govern the rest of us.

“But this is exactly backwards. The First Amendment is part of our nation’s governing document, and it recognizes the unalienable rights possessed by all Americans — not just people of faith. State and local regulators are engaged in special pleading. They’re seeking carve-outs from the supreme law of the land.

“Judge Stras understands this reality quite clearly. “Even antidiscrimination laws, as critically important as they are,” he writes “must yield to the Constitution. And as compelling as the interest in preventing discriminatory conduct may be, speech is treated differently under the First Amendment.”

“Yes. Exactly. He continues:

“Regulating speech because it is discriminatory or offensive is not a compelling state interest, however hurtful the speech may be. It is a “bedrock principle . . . that the government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable.”

Thanks for showing us your support for the fascist Mullah Jiggy. I knew you were a fascist.

Did I see this week that Trump is paying off the student debt of 20,000 injured VETS?

Looks like those darned Israelies don't waste time destroying Iranian drones. They have pretty good intelligence services. Jiggy and Barron should pay attention.

In the Bee today was a story on an illegal Mexican that has voted in the last 20 years of elections. And of all the ones the press denies happening regarding democrats, this guy is supposedly a Trump fan. You cannot make this stuff up.

Bill Tozer

Now, the news you won’t find in your local media.
Covering (I guess?) the important issues:

Why Are Fewer French Women Sunbathing Topless? I have my own theory based on the spike of rapes since Angie threw open the doors to those who live by 6th Century rules, but that cannot be a consideration without severe blowback.

“In 1984, a survey found that 43 percent of Frenchwomen bathed topless on the beach. But a similar poll last month revealed that figure had fallen to 19 percent. Of 1,000 women interviewed, 59 percent of under-25s said they covered their breasts in order not to arouse men, while 51 percent said they were scared of being physically or sexually abused if they went topless. Other reasons stated were a fear of skin cancer, and a lack of self-confidence about their bodies.

“Someone actually takes polls and surveys on this vital issue? I would think this topic requires lots of on-the-scene field research.”

• Occam’s Razor, meet the razor blade industry: Procter & Gamble, owners of the Gillette razor franchise, recently took a $8 billion—billion with a B—write-down on its Gillette division in the wake of its woke marketing campaign. Couldn’t happen to a dumber company. (I sold my P&G stock when this idiocy began. It was trending to overvalue territory anyway.)

Now Gillette is backtracking, at least in Australia:

Razor brand Gillette says it is “shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes” after an ad delving into “toxic masculinity” caused a customer backlash. . .

“We have a very clear strategy when it comes to how we authentically connect with our consumers,” said Manu Airan, associate brand director for Gillette Australia and New Zealand.

“We will continue to talk about what is important to Gillette and that is representing men at their best and helping men do their best. That is not changing. We will continue to do that and demonstrate it in different ways.”

Parent company P&G last month took a nearly $12 billion ($US8 billion) writedown in the value of the 118-year-old shaving business it purchased in 2005 for $84 billion ($US57 billion).

As Glenn Reynolds like to say, “Get woke, go broke.” P&G won’t go broke, but the $8 billion write-off is a nice comeuppance.

Trump up by two 50-48 today is Paul Emery's most trusted poll.

As Gomer Pyle would say,”surprise, surprise, surprise. Solar panels do not make good roads.

“Surprise—solar panels don’t make great roads. The French government recently learned this the hard way after debuting a $6 million solar road in Normandy in 2016. The road generated about half as much power as expected, and costs exceeded any reasonable expectation for a road…or even a solar panel.

“An American experiment in solar roads fared similarly. In 2016, the Daily Caller reported that roughly 25 out of 30 panels installed in a prototype solar road in Idaho broke within a week—after the project received $3.9 million in funding [some of which from the Department of Transportation] and 6.5 years of development.

“These colossal development failures speak not only to solar roads but also to “renewable” projects in general, where hype rarely matches reality. Lawmakers around the world should think twice before lavishing “cutting-edge” technology with subsidies and making taxpayers foot the bill for the inevitable failures that result.

“Over the past few decades, a predictable pattern has emerged: Governments tout cool-sounding renewable energy technologies, but promises and funding fall flat because of the biases and inefficiencies of the public sector.”

Couple of important posts on Russ Steele's blog. One on the recent publication from NOAA showing no US temp increase in last 14 years; the other reports on Michael ('hockey stick') Mann's suit being thrown out of court with prejudice, since the sumbich refused to show the data with which he made up the now infamous hockey stick that continues to be worshipped by true believers world wide.
