Emery 7:12 - I believe you were asked to explain what should happen in Syria re the Kurds.
As usual, you wimp out. Like all losers, you have nothing positive to say. You complain that Trump will start a war and then when he doesn't you complain that he won't fight.
Since you consider yourself to have a superior view of this matter, we await your plan of action.

Scott O

More classic Emery - " Otherwise he will either be impeached for various reasons..."
Sounds like a reasonable crime...
'Various reasons'.
Say it in a High Lord Chancellor accent - "You have hereby been charged with various reasons".
Auntie Emery is now a barrister.
Who knew?
And I could have sworn Emery was going with the Putin Cuddling.
That was sooooo 2018.

The problem with the Dems is they have no heros to run for Prez. Another thing that is missing from the Dem platform is any viable or realistic economic policy.

All the Dems have are nothing burgers. Zero caleries.

Where's the beef?

LOL!! Emery thinks the GOP should kick Trump to the curb and run a nobody? He really is on the corner bar stool at the Mineshaft. How many shots of the cheap Irish stuff Emery?
I saw how that crap was made! You really don't want to know.

George Rebane

Jig, you still don't get it. When was anyone banned from RR for expressing his opinion? Your continuing mistake is that you take everyone to be of one mind who doesn't think like you. I don't think any two RR readers have identical views of Trump, and almost all have criticized him in one way or another. Is that something that any of you can point to here?

There is always Jeffy's page jiggered one.. Someone who will always agree with you. A nice safe space. Snowflake central.

"WTF does "does not endorse" mean? WTF "does does not endorse" mean to a 26 year old Kurdish man who has spent his entire life defending American ideals and (should we mention) American soldiers and American hard assets (oil refineries)?"
Ah - now we see that the American left support foreigners who will die for American oil refineries.
Total comedy.
If I support 'American ideals', I'm a NAZI - but suddenly the Kurds can do the same and because Trump doesn't start a war against Turkey, WTH??
Maybe the leftys that post here can come up with a unified sort of foreign policy that intelligent folk can interpret.
So far all the left can do is throw rocks.
Where is a comprehensive policy from the left?
All they can do is wait for Trump to do anything and then the left has a miraculous brand new policy invented on the spot.

The Repubs should be responsible for nominating someone else to replace him of force him to resign. Otherwise he will either be impeached for various reasons or surely be defeated in the election bu the Dems. What in your view should we do about it? Glad you're concerned.

"It doesn't appear that the republicans have any plans to nominate anyone else. If you are certain that he'll be defeated in the next election why beat the drum for impeachment?"

I too have been pondering a response. You nailed it. Punchy has doubts. Not the same confidence he had right after the Inaugation when he flatly proclaimed that the Rs would block Trump at every turn and he would resign in 60 days. Take it to the bank. End of discussion. Put a fork in it. That was 32 and a half months ago. The corroqding seed of doubt has taken root and sprouted. Must of been those green sprouts Obama talked about. Now it is up to the R's to do what he said they would do in late Jan, 2017. Blame the American voters, lol. Blame the Irredewmables. Hey, we aren't called irredeemable without good cause.

Gregory nailed it too. Trump's base is not going to out of the blue abandon the Prez and turn the keys over to the Addicted to Outrage impeach Kavanaugh shieking mob or a RINO. Or a gun grabbing Big Brother statist commie-lite CIA lubbing civil liberty hating power lusting Leftinista. No way.

"Newly declassified court documents indicate that the FBI failed to comply with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in targeting Americans while searching through NSA records during President Trump's administration and after James Comey's tenure as FBI director.

An October 2018 ruling from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) found that the FBI violated Section 702 by not keeping track of searches that pertained to "United States persons," and that proposed changes were still not enough to comply with the law. That ruling was later affirmed on appeal in July 2019. The documents were declassified and released Tuesday."

I take full responsibity for the Lefty's distress. I have broad shoulders. Unfortunately I am unable to feel their severe anguish no matter how hard I try to be empathic. Nary a drop of sympathy unless I meditate real focused like and practice deep breathing. I hope they can find it in their hearts one day to forgive this wretched rube.

Did you know that last week that lib whack job that is mayor of Minneapolis tried to block and stop trump from coming to her city. She said she was going a charge trump $500,000 for security. Trump told the mayor to flock off and that The Secret service was in charge of his security and take it up with them. I heard Trump even gave a shout out to my brothers that run the power line blog. A blog which I frequent and Bobby probably hates. I also heard that the president of the United States tore into that anti-American spoiled ungrateful commie beech Omar.

Daily Quotes

The Swamp: “The Left insists that organizations like the NRA are corrupting our politics and buying off politicians. Whether this is true or not (and I don’t think it is), at least Republicans aren’t appropriating hundreds of millions of dollars from our paychecks every year to put it directly into the NRA’s coffers — so that the money can eventually end up in their own coffers. One can only imagine the reaction from the Left if such a system were ever instated. Well, they simply wouldn’t allow it. And yet Republicans have allowed the Democrats to launder campaign funds through Planned Parenthood for decades. That is maybe the biggest outrage of all.” —Matt Walsh

All about the dollars: “Glad to see that the world’s most politically active sports league, the NBA, loses all of its nerve the moment dollars are on the line. The mark of true bravery is caving to a fascistic foreign government while proclaiming your bravery for whining about Trump.” —Ben Shapiro

For the record: “Democrats: We’re going to take away your guns and your church’s tax-exemption and if you don’t treat this [nine-year-old] girl like a boy, we’ll shame you. Also Democrats: Trump is undermining the norms of our society.” —Erick Erickson

Food for thought: “The great irony of the ‘no more endless wars’ camp’s argument is that removing our small and cost-effective force from Northern Syria is causing more war, not less. Our presence there was not meant to engage in endless wars, it was there to deter further warfare.” —Rep. Dan Crenshaw

Warning signs: “There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution or organization in America that denies the full human rights, and the full civil rights, of everyone in America.” —Beto O'Rourke

Propaganda: “Gay couples are more likely to stay together longer than heterosexual couples.” —Joe Biden

Non compos mentis: “It’s becoming a challenge to keep up with the high crimes and misdemeanors.” —Hillary Clinton

And last… “Where are all of these same political and media elites, who care oh so very much about the byzantine border intricacies of the Turkish/Kurdish conflict, when it comes to the harrowingly lawless situation on our very own southern border with Mexico?” —Justin Hammer

Winning!

RIGA/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Germany is willing to contribute more to NATO's running costs as long as other allies also step up to help reduce the United States' share of funding, German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said on Friday.

President Donald Trump has long accused European allies, especially Germany, the biggest economy in Europe, of taking U.S. security guarantees for granted and says they need to spend much more on their own defense.

With a meeting of NATO leaders looming in December, some allies now see reform of financing for the U.S.-led military alliance as a way to preempt another round of criticism from Trump and show that they are listening to his concerns.

Under a proposal now being considered by NATO, the U.S. contribution to the alliance's annual budget would fall to 16% from the current 22%, while Germany's would rise, also to 16% from 14.8%, from 2021. Other countries would also pay more.

The socialist and collectivist street gangs have been in open protest of what may be called the normal order of political activism for over a century. Since the days of the Bolsheviks, the promoters of authoritarianism and tyranny have always sought to shut down their political opponents with concurrent street demonstrations and organized violence against the public peace. Last night in Minneapolis was the Left's business as usual. I invite any of our progressive readers to compare such public displays of thuggery, both in their numbers and intensity, with what Democrat politicians experience from the Right when they hold forth with their constituents.

“These leftists are identical to the Nazi Brownshirts of the 1930s. But make no mistake–they represent today’s Democratic Party. A sitting Democratic State Representative, Aisha Gomez (DFL-Minneapolis), was seen among the fascists, dressed in black like an Antifa hoodlum. And Minneapolis’s boy Mayor, Jacob Frey, who expressed regret that he could not legally prevent President Trump from visiting Minneapolis, and then tried to do it anyway, issued an order to the Minneapolis Police Department not to use chemical irritants on the mob of criminal Democrats. [UPDATE: We have a disagreement between Boy Mayor Frey and the mob: Frey denies issuing such an order, putting him at odds with fellow Democrat Gomez.] And not a single local Democrat has condemned the violence and disorder that took place last night.“

If the result is that they invest in LGBTQLMNOP-friendly businesses and the taxpayer is left on the hook, then that's what'll happen.

If we all feel like prey animals sometimes, well, it's a more lively existence.

Since we were on the air 24 hours a day. We have generators for the studio and the broadcast tower. Have lots of reports with members of County Government Yuba net and Nevada City on the air several times.

"Since we were on the air 24 hours a day. "

I could swear I heard it go off-air. It was a few minutes after all the lights went off but the boards were still alive. KNCO seems to be the bigger culprit as they are a 'news' station as opposed to 'my favorite Celtic music with local news a couple of times a day'.

In any case, you'll spend plenty of time worrying about Trump here, and not so much about how to improve things locally.

The obvious Achilles' Heel in a widespread outage is a combination of gas stations and cell towers (plus dead landlines). People can usually eat out of their cupboards for a week, although they might get sick of lima beans. Add in the extra fun of a bonafide emergency (smoke on the horizon) and everything will go to hell in a handbasket after day two.

My working theory is that the average person living in the 'mountains' is no more ready for problems than an apartment dweller in SF. Everyone is on their own and if you don't have a spare, you don't have any. Take out the power for two weeks and watch the excitement.

PG&E's motive are interesting to think about, but unimportant to everyones' personal situation. The increased need to run generators, store gasoline in garages, build more fragile infrastructure (smart meters, centrally run A/C, backfeed from panels, etc.), EVs, difficulty in building power generation, widespread use of electrical medical equipment, should make everyone rethink how it's run though.

Walt- I'm here to report the PW performed flawlessly.

She was charged by the sun and gave us electrons in our time of need. Perfect balance of power. No fossil fuels were killed during the 3.5 day outage. Ice cream stayed hard. The only step outside our ordinary lifestyle is that we kept foods we use on a regular basis in a Yeti so we didn't open the fridge more than necessary. I'm sorry for your loss.

re: Powerwalls.

They don't strike me as a bad idea, assuming you are setup for lower power usage (no use of electricity for any kind of heat,cooking,clothes drying,central fans). Plus there's some way to refill the thing every day.

Well your “fat guy” priorities are still straight.


Walt

jiggers wan on a generator at best. Funny,, you sure dropped of the radar here after 24 hours. Si brag about that fantasy powerwall all you like. Like I said. I talked to someone who actually has one.

The guy next door spent PLENTY on solar. Yet didn't set up any storage. So when the power went off, he was SOL just like most.
So what shows up in his driveway half way through the fun? A whole house generator. The installation started yesterday.

That huge solar farm paid for by taxpayer money didn't keep the Rood Center open. One more example that solar ain't worth shit.

,,,po ol clueless Walter,,,grid tie solar helps to offset costs for commercial buildings that get billed using on time of use metering. When peak pricing is in play during the peak demand during the daytime the grid tie cuts those costs by "running the meter backward" so to speak.

It is called saving money Walter. Perhaps you have heard of that concept?

Walt

Sure as hell have. My generator expense was WAY less, and has already paid for itself in the form of no lost food in two outages.

Tell us the pay off date for that multi million dollar solar farm? 21_ _??????

There is a sucker born every minute,, and they are usually Liberals.

Here BIGass,
"Overall energy cost savings is estimated to be $8M over the next 20 years. The County will then self-generate approximately 80% of our electricity needs."

So 80% of the county building could not stay open?

Seen the size of that system? And it can't power one building?
Even on a downsized need?

Solar just living up to the hype. It must be just fine for those who get others to pay for it.

There was an interesting report Thursday morning at about 8:10am...

Yubanet's Pascale F. was at the Grass Valley Airport and assured all listeners the wind was blowing... but didn't bother to say just how hard the wind was blowing. It wouldn't be hard to estimate looking at the windsock, even easier to just read the number off the display in the office.

Something less than the scary forecasts of 40G70 the PSPS selling points were promising. A single digit, no gusts?

CA new laws: Ban of school lunch debt shaming, all sales of new furs, ban on those tiny hotel shamoo bottles, and smoking at all State parks and beaches. That will fix everything.

Meanwhile, the wind is blowing and man is it gusty. The flags are flapping in the wind, a the wind mill is spinning like there is no tomorrow...and that trees are loud with the sound of rustling leaves fron howling wind blowing through the branches.
The good news is there was no blackout, there will be no blackout, and the electricity is flowibg just fine. And the best news is that I am currently a thousand miles away from CA on this fine fall day, two time zones from power outages. :)

Crush them while they're still in their nests……………..


"Whom the gods would destroy, they first make crazy. And higher education has become objectively crazy. It’s not a shock that taxpayers think their money might be better spent elsewhere than on subsidizing enclaves of insanity. It’s especially true when universities spend so much of their time attacking so many of the Americans who pay taxes to support them, from Trump voters, to Christians, to gun owners and businesspeople. It takes a lot of chutzpah to slap someone in the face and then put your hand out for money, but that’s what universities have been doing for decades and with special force over the past few years."

“ABC World News Tonight” reported Sunday evening that a clip appeared to show Turkish-backed fighters bombing the Kurds. The chyron said, “Slaughter in Syria.” The network aired the footage again during Monday’s “Good Morning America.”

Harry Reid Has A Stark Warning For Democrats About Trump's 2020 Campaign
Ed Mazza,HuffPost 10 hours ago

Former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is warning Democrats not to underestimate President Donald Trump in next year’s election.

“I used to think that Donald Trump was not too smart,” Reid said on CNN over the weekend. “I certainly don’t believe that anymore.”

Reid, who retired in 2017, told David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” that he still doesn’t think Trump is “intellectually a powerhouse.” But he added:
He is basically a very, very smart man. No matter what the subject, any argument he involves himself in, it’s on his terms. You’re always arguing against him. He never, never is willing to debate an issue on terms that aren’t his.

Reid said that will make for a difficult campaign for the eventual Democratic nominee.
“Anyone that thinks Trump’s going to be beaten easily should have another think coming,” he said.

Paul Emery

Blood on Trumps hands:

Kurdish fighters under attack by Turkey have described President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria as a “stab in the back.”

Since bombing began on Oct. 9, Turkish military operations against the Syrian Democratic Forces in northern Syria, Washington’s staunchest and most effective allies in the war against the Islamic State, has killed at least 11 civilians and an unconfirmed number of Kurdish fighters, with estimates ranging from dozens to hundreds.

Kurdish fighters are key partners to the U.S. in the Middle East. From 2003 to 2017, they helped overthrow the regime of Saddam Hussein, battled al-Qaida and pushed the Islamic State out of northern Iraq and Syria.

Kurdish women have fought on the front lines in all these battles, as they have done since the 19th-century Kurdish commander Kara Fatma led an Ottoman battalion of 700 men and 43 women against the Russian Empire.

So Emery is the warmonger now. Where did the "Bring our troops home" Emery go? Or "unjust war" Emery? "It's not our fight" Emery? Or,, "illegal war" Emery?

Funny how the tune changes when Trump does things.
