Life on Earth will end if Trump is re-elected. He will never leave office.

According to the FBI, the overwhelming quantity AND increase in hate crimes is attacks on American Jews.

I'll throw in one of my favorites from the Southern Poverty Law Center. As most who read know, they are a virulent alt-Left organization that promotes every anti-American cause known and identifies all people, groups, and organizations that disagree with their worldview as being members of 'hate groups'. As usual, no evidence needed, mere accusations suffice. I recommend reading at least some of the highlights of their latest report.

I am sorry George I am trying to identify what specific "Big Lie" you believe the SPLC will put out before the New Year?

"I solicit nominations for the next Democrat/lamestream Big Lie re/issued before New Year's Day..."

Waldo'sNemesis

,,,The current big lie put out by Trump and RW Trump lemmings is that there is no '''there there''' regarding withholding Ukraine funding and quid pro quo...

George Rebane

StevenF 1217pm - According to the lights that illuminate the Right-leaners, SPLC is a longtime lavish liar about whom and what organizations they designate haters and hate groups. They have already put out their Big Lie which I invited you to read in 1124am. While there are extreme views on both sides, I don't think holding a different worldview from someone should instantly make someone a hater. E.g. for years I have been identified as one such hater by members of, say, Team Pelline, among your other cohorts.

Waldo 1227pm - What exactly is the 'there', and what is the evidence for it? And if it is something rising to the importance of impeachment culpability, why did the Dems not establish it with something other than assembling a collection of equally baseless accusations?

Fred Wells

Rebane-
You are known throughout the community as a hater, shit stirrer, and racist fear monger. Nazi is probably the most common word associated with you. Please don't pretend Pelline is an outlier.

George Rebane

FredW 1247pm - Not at all Mr Wells, Pelline is by no means an outlier as my 1234pm clearly indicates by referral to 'Team Pelline' and then others of Mr Frisch's mindset. A bit more careful reading would have revealed that. And exactly what "community" are you referring to? And why are you such a regular reader of all this awful stuff on RR?

What is Trump bragging about when he claims massive opposition for impeachment. this was just released. Reaffirms Trump doesn't have a clue and is delusional.

"A new poll released on Christmas Day shows record-level support among U.S. voters for the ouster of President Donald Trump—a finding that indicates the Republican Party’s effort to obstruct accountability for the president is not having the desired result.

The daily tracking poll from Microsoft News published Wednesday asked respondents if they “support or oppose the Senate voting to remove President from office?” It found that while 55% of people support only 40% oppose—a dramatic surge for those backing Trump’s ouster and a record for the poll that has been asking that same question since late September of this year."

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/12/new-poll-shows-how-mitch-mcconnell-should-be-running-scared-instead-of-gloating-about-trump-impeachment/

Paul Emery

Here's more from the same link:

The MN poll is not the only survey of recent days to show Americans more in favor of Trump’s removal than opposed.

"A HuffPost-YouGov poll (pdf) taken just prior to the Christmas holiday (Dec. 20-22), showed 47% in favor of the Senate voting to convict Trump compared to 42% who opposed. Just days earlier, a Morning Consult-Politico poll showed slightly higher numbers in favor of removing Trump, with 51% supporting and 42% opposed."

Steve Frisch

OK, I think it’s clear that occasionally the SPLC can be incorrect in something they publish. But you are not pointing to any specific thing, you are saying their (SPLCs) entire perspective is a Big Lie.

The problem is that a vast majority of what they publish and the groups and people they spotlight s accurate. Their entire premise as an organization is that right wing, racist, white supremacist, and anti Semitic hate exists, is more prevalent than we think, and that although overwhelmingly right wing also includes some left wing groups, and that by exposing them we lessen their impact.

They are entirely correct in that premise.

The reason that people like Fred and I post here is the same premise; that we have a responsibility to shine a light on your mind set.

You are a racist, white supremacist, separatist, hateful voice in our community. Fred is also correct that for all your expressions of kulture and pseudo intellectualism, people see you for exactly what you are, a Nazi.

Merry Christmas.

Gregory

The SPLC's mindset, like Pelline's, Frisch's and now Wells', is that anti-left wingers exist and all's fair in standing in their way, including making false and defamatory statements.

Frisch has much to be ashamed of.

Paul Emery

Gregory

All you do is hold court from your various calling towers, then put beans in your ears and blinders over your eyes. If perception is reality, in this community you are a walking talking hate mongering, Nazi lightning rod and generally regarded as a egg head buffoon.

If a Proggy gets elected, that goes back overseas in a heartbeat. Because a LIB will be looking for ways to relieve business of that money. LIBs think they know what's best for other people's money.

"So many LIBS...... SO full of shit...(and anger)"

No problem. In the spirit of the Christmas season (and perhaps in a bit of post-Christmas feast ennui) them darned commies always start looking for potential Hitlers to accuse. You're lucky that the non-Christians haven't started accusing the Christians of non-Christianity, a typical Christmas pasttime.

Such is the way of life. Which reminds me:

"An old priest died and went to heaven. He was asked if he had one last wish before entering.

He replied that he would like to have a conducted tour of hell.

They began in one of the deepest pits reserved for those whose lives had been utterly evil. There he saw a lake of boiling shit in which stood Hitler and Stalin. Stalin was up to his waist in it and Hitler up to his nose.

That’s outrageous,” said the priest. “Why should Hitler be punished more than Stalin? I suffered under both and Stalin was just as evil as Hitler.”

“You don’t understand,” said his guide, “Stalin is standing on Lenin’s shoulders.”"

Upon further consideration, there will no issuing of some new Big Lie before New Year’s Day, just the recycled Trump and all his supporters are Nazis....as evidenced above. A new Big Lie would take too much effort and might distract from Ukraine.

When all else fails, Trump is a racist Nazi. Or a Nazi racist. The lazy man’s guide to riches.

George Rebane

re StevenF 143pm - "The reason that people like Fred and I post here is the same premise; that we have a responsibility to shine a light on your mind set."

It's most remarkable that fuming leftwing worthies like Frisch, Wells, et al come here into their devil's den to shine their light. But then who do they think among RR readers will be enlightened by such shinings? Are they attempting to adjust the attitudes of our conservative readers who have been fooled by my observations and commentaries? Or are they attempting to warn their likeminded readers who somehow don't have the acumen to see through it all as the keen-minded Frisch et al, therefore they must be warned away lest they succumb. One would think that they would take their message about me and RR to outlets more consumed by their referenced community - like KVMR listeners, KNCO listeners, Union readers, their own blogs and Facebook pages, ... - consumed by those who surely are not regular RR readers.

BTW, don't take the above as a recommendation to change your commenting policy. As I've said many times before, you and yours are a critical part of the raison d'etre of RR. The convenience of your comments marbled into these comment streams allows other readers to have ready confirmation of the worldview promoted here. So please stay.

So disappointed in Steve......trapped in the 90's......where's the accusation of "transphobia", "homophobia" What are his personal pronouns? He tosses in "anti-semite" but only in defense of SPLC AKA "Kool Mo Dees Shakedown Squad and Old Black Lady Scaring Team"! But.....hey.....props to him for doing so could an SBC even exist with the progressive direct mail revenue model? Gratitude is so rare these days!

A word of caution Steve.....Kool Mo was given the bums rush for personnel policies not entirely unfamiliar to the SBC.


"But nothing was more uncomfortable than the racial dynamic that quickly became apparent: a fair number of what was then about a hundred employees were African-American, but almost all of them were administrative and support staff—“the help,” one of my black colleagues said pointedly. The “professional staff”—the lawyers, researchers, educators, public-relations officers, and fund-raisers—were almost exclusively white. Just two staffers, including me, were openly gay."


That might have flown in "pre-woke" America but probably no longer!


PS: What the fuck is a "Fred Wells"?

Off thread, but under the Big Lie umbrella. Under what post are we to put comments?

I has occurred to me that the Steele Dossier, the Russian Hoax, the Mueller Report, the IG Report, and Ukraine all fall under the same topic. They all are one and the same; to get rid of Trump. It’s all under the BIG LIE and one story is just a continuation of the another. Thus.....not a tossed salad, but a steel
——————
From the IG Report and McCain’s own words.

“The IG report also verifies that a McCain aid obtained the Steele reports directly from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, meaning that when McCain transferred the anti-Trump charges to Comey he had to have known that the material originated with a firm that specializes in controversial opposition tactics.

Fusion GPS was paid for its anti-Trump work by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via the Perkins Coie law firm.

States the IG report:

Several weeks later, on December 9, 2016, Senator John McCain provided Comney with a collection of 16 Steele election reports, 5 of which Steele had not given the FBI. McCain had obtained these reports from a staff member at the McCain Institute. The McCain Institute staff member had met with Steele and later acquired the reports from Simpson.

The unnamed McCain staff member is known to be David J. Kramer, who also infamously provided BuzzFeed with the Steele dossier.”

“In his book published last year, McCain maintained he had an “obligation” to pass the dossier charges against Trump to Comey and he would even do it again. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain exclaimed.”

Bill Tozer

A look Down Under: Campus Rape

“But the major breakthrough came when the Queensland Supreme Court decision in November determined that universities have no jurisdiction to adjudicate sexual assault. This landmark case involved a University of Queensland medical student who was accused of sexual assault by another student. Wendy Mulcahy, the lawyer for the accused student, took the matter to the Supreme Court arguing that UQ did not have the jurisdiction to adjudicate such matters. In her judgement, Justice Ann Lyons concluded that universities are only entitled to make decisions in sexual assault cases which have been proved in criminal court.”.....

“Earlier this year, a university administrator admitted in private correspondence with a student representative that his university had assumed they might still proceed with a misconduct hearing to determine the guilt of the perpetrator even if the accused had been found not guilty in criminal court. The reason? The university had a lower standard of proof, he said. That’s the point of this whole exercise—to use “victim-centred” justice to ensure more rape convictions. Feminists are angry that juries so rarely convict young men in he-said, she-said date rape situations, and “believe-the-victim” campus investigations make securing a conviction much easier.

That was widely acknowledged as the goal in 2011 when President Obama required all publicly funded universities to establish tribunals to adjudicate rape on campus. This led to over 200 successful lawsuits against universities for failing to protect the due process rights of the accused —rights the Trump administration is now seeking to restore. Given that recent history, it is extraordinary that our higher education sector has allowed itself to be led down the same path. Universities Australia has just commissioned a new survey on sexual assault intended to cook up more impressive rape statistics after the failure of the AHRC to produce the desired results.

It’s a relief to see a few shots finally fired across the bow of this misbegotten enterprise, and hopefully there are more to come.”

====================================================================================

Time to be able to reach out and touch the chi coms -

The significance of this decision for the strategic competition with China cannot be overstated. Because China was never a party to the treaty, and steadfastly refused to be brought into the treaty, it was free to deploy intermediate-range ballistic and cruise missiles.

Related: Pentagon Test-Fires 2nd INF-Banned Missile

And it took advantage of that freedom, deploying thousands of such weapons. As then-U.S. Navy Adm. “Harry” Harris answered a question from Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, “I think that we are at a disadvantage with regard to China today, in the sense that China has ground-based ballistic missiles that threaten our basing in the western Pacific and our ships. They have ground-based ballistic anti-ship missiles. And we have nothing — we have no ground-based capability that can threaten China.”

Trump’s withdrawal from the treaty presents the United States the opportunity to regain the advantage. Just as the PLA Rocket force holds U.S. bases, assets, and allies at risk of attack, conventional ground-based theater-range missiles owned and operated by the United States or Japan, or a combination of both, would hold enemy targets at risk. This would help U.S. forces, mainly from the sea and air, operate in areas increasingly covered by PLA missiles.

Digging deeper on our surly local socialist blue mob and their self talk -

They thought they had got what they wanted for Christmas in impeachment but then it turned out to not be what they were hoping for at all. You know kind of like that big foil wrapped chocolate santa or easter bunny.

Impeachment has the same problem, its hollow, no substance just an extremely thin shell with shiny coverings.

No real charges other than we don't like you since 2016 and while the pony tail of ignorance may point to an online poll where all you need to do is clear your browser to revote....

The real story is the polls of likely VOTERS in swing states especially the independents and that's a shit storm for the socialist dems.

Couple that with the surge in black and Hispanic voters for Trump and the house can flip back. Botox Nancy would be the only speaker to lose majorities back to back. LOL!

To really really get under the Libs skin, just call them stupid or dumb. One can counter that Libs are not stupid, just people with dumb ideas. Ok, that works. Let’s take a closer look at stupid.
, with AOC and today’s flamers in mind.

“Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented by use of force. Evil always carries within itself the germ of its own subversion in that it leaves behind in human beings at least a sense of unease. Against stupidity we are defenseless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed–in such moments the stupid person even becomes critical–and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental. In all this the stupid person, in contrast to the malicious one, is utterly self-satisfied and, being easily irritated, becomes dangerous by going on the attack. For that reason, greater caution is called for when dealing with a stupid person than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.“

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison.

More if you wish

“....The process at work here is not that particular human capacities, for instance, the intellect, suddenly atrophy or fail. Instead, it seems that under the overwhelming impact of rising power, humans are deprived of their inner independence and, more or less consciously, give up establishing an autonomous position toward the emerging circumstances. The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, One virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with him as a person, but with slogans, catchwords, and the like that have taken possession of him. He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil. This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human beings.

Lets take an intermission from the trollish set fevered spewing. How about a little rollback of the fake news/talking points for lefties -

U.S. Navy patrols to the Black Sea have remained consistent over the last several years despite testimony during President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearings that he ordered the maneuvers be canceled.

A U.S. military official told Military Times that a U.S. naval ship had entered the Black Sea seven times in fiscal 2017, eight times in fiscal 2018, and eight times as of mid-November 2019.
Christopher Anderson, a U.S. foreign service officer, testified before lawmakers that Trump had ordered the Black Sea patrols be canceled after seeing a report on CNN about the U.S. naval movements in the contentious waters in January.

But those patrols were never canceled and they have remained consistent under Trump’s tenure in the White House. The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer Ross patrolled the Black Sea in December, making it the eighth time a U.S. warship visited the Black Sea in 2019.

“Throughout the year, U.S. 6th Fleet assets have operated in the Black Sea in support of our regional partners and allies,” Vice Adm. Lisa M. Franchetti, the commander of U.S. 6th Fleet said in news release. “Ross’ transit demonstrates our continued commitment to security and stability in the maritime domain.”

Meanwhile back in the real world -

The district of Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., also faced a shift after he left the GOP and became a fierce critic of the president, supporting his impeachment in the House. That district, which had been a tossup, was since leaning Republican, the report showed.

"This is totally backfiring on the Democrats and I think Nancy Pelosi let this get way out in front of her," Reschenthaler said of the report. "We have to remember that the far-left social-justice Democrats are running this party now but we are seeing that Trump is up in my home state of Pennsylvania. He's leading the Democrat contenders, sometimes by double digits... and in all those battlegrounds where Democrats hold seats where Trump won, I think we can get a lot of those seats back and take back the House in 2020."

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer shared a similar sentiment this past October, saying Democrats have been so irrationally focused on impeaching Trump they will hand the House of Representatives back to the GOP.

"Some of them live in a bubble -- they think they're winning," he said.

“Australia and Canada, which both have skills-based immigration systems that Boris Johnson hopes to emulate after Brexit, are expected to rise in the rankings due to their success in attracting skilled migrants, according to the CEBR report.

By 2034 Canada is predicted to be the eighth largest economy and Australia the 13th biggest.

A skills-based immigration like Canada’s would do more than just about anything else to give the U.S. economy a permanent boost, but the Democrats will never let it happen.

The left’s “resistance” to the Trump administration, including the current impeachment farce, is all about distracting attention from the administration’s successful policies so that the Democrats can cling to power. Some might call Trump’s successes “winning.”

"“Australia and Canada, which both have skills-based immigration systems"

Of course, the difference between them and the US is that this country is a 'nation of immigrants'.

I'll pass out my own entry (and it won't cost you a thing) for the " Democrat/lamestream Big Lie", although it'll only start ramping up and continue after New Years.

1) Impeach the President in the House.
2) Leave the impeachment open (ie. don't send it to the Senate).
3) Invent a Big Lie/Imaginary Rule that Presidents under impeachment can't nominate Supreme Court Justices.

You just watch.

CORRUPTION
If The FBI’s Contempt For The Law Is Not Reined In, Its Abuses Will Get Worse

“Hours before the FISA court issued a December 17 order openly declaring that it could no longer trust any of the sworn statements the FBI had submitted to justify spying on Americans, The New York Times published an opinion article by William Webster, a former director of both the FBI and the CIA. Webster wrote, “Today, the integrity of the institutions that protect our civil order is, tragically, under assault from too many people whose job it should be to protect them.”

Gone are the days The New York Times worked to expose government abuse of power. The New York Times now defends power from truth.”

HUNTER BIDEN ABSENT FROM BIDEN FAMILY CHRISTMAS CARD

You know, it wasn’t just a measly 50-90K a month for the wayward son. It turned out to be something like 270 million left Burisma going towards Little Joe’s kin. Also looks like money laundering. And the Ukrainians were looking into why Hunter, as a compensated board member, was charging the company 118k/month for his American consulting firm services to himself. Unusual experience for a board member. Just saying. No worries. That guy got fired. :)

,,,Circle of Jerks_Arizona Chapter???

“Remember the reason for the season! #MerryChristmas,” Gosar tweeted at about 11 a.m. on Christmas Eve. The tweet included a video clip of a studio light falling on a younger Hillary and Bill Clinton, with Bill shielding Hillary from harm’s way while she said, “Jesus, Mary and Joseph.”

But the tweet quickly backfired, with the Clintons’ adult daughter calling out the congressman for spending his Christmas Eve trying to attack her family.

“At 11am on Christmas Eve, we were making cookies for Santa,” Chelsea Clinton tweeted, thanking Gosar “for reminding me of my dad’s quick reflexes!”

Gosar has been a congressman for Arizona since 2011, and is a staunch conservative and supporter of President Donald Trump. He is known for falsely accusing the Obama administration of being an “accessory” to murder; calling for Capitol Police to arrest undocumented immigrants attending Trump’s State of the Union; peddling a conspiracy theory that liberal Jewish billionaire George Soros funded the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia; and boycotting Pope Francis’ address to Congress over the pope’s climate change advocacy.

Gosar has also been a loud conservative voice in railing against Trump’s impeachment, accusing Democrats of conducting a “secret kangaroo court” to remove the president from office. The congressman went on an anti-impeachment rant that was 23 tweets long, embedding into his messages the phrase: “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

This is an Arizona Freedom Caucus U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar who tweeted this thinking it's funny. The U.S. Congressman whose own family begged #AZ04 to not vote for their *wackadoodle dentist brother as John McCain called it.

Six of Gosar’s nine siblings appeared in a video last year endorsing their brother’s opponent ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, criticizing the congressman’s character, morals and politics. Seven of them wrote a letter to the editor to the Kingman Daily Miner in 2017 to denounce Gosar for pushing the Charlottesville conspiracy.

“This is a matter of right and wrong, not politics,” his siblings wrote. “We are aghast that Paul has sunk so low that he now spews the most despicable slander against an 87-year-old man without a shred of proof, and then doesn’t even have the guts or decency to apologize?”
