"Spartacus just went racist. Then what do expect from DEM voters??? HUMMMM??????"

That's an absolute no-brainer. Team Red can still get away with it, being Nazis and all, but there's no way in the world that Team Blue will not place either a POC and/or a female on the ticket from here on. Absolutely no way, even if one is gay or a man-with-a-dress. Democratic candidates will be chosen like items on a Chinese restaurant menu. Vice Presidential candidates used to be chosen because they brought a state, now they bring a color or gender.

Any of the local Blue Mob care to take up that bet? Will there ever be a two white male (D) ticket from here on?

George 11:58 --

Vacation time and golfing and family expenses born by taxpayers has nothing to do with plots or plans or additional items on which to impeach trumpler... it has everything to do with transparency in government. Taxpayers have a right to know how THEIR MONEY is being utilized and it seems that the trumpler organization is doing everything it can to prevent information that is very relevant for taxpayers and voters to know, from becoming public...Why do you think they keep saying, again and again, they will disclose at some future point, but it never happens? Perhaps it's because such information would gross people out and trumpler would lose votes, which seems to be the driving force behind many of his decisions as of late, plus or minus votes..

Like most Presidents, he doesn't appear to have been any kind of intellectual or original thinker, but the man was hell on wheels at reading a script.

That, plus a whole lotta ambition is probably enough, although being reasonably good looking and not being a midget sure helps. Appearing black wasn't a bad marketing move though.

I always thought you could view Obama as our first TV anchorman President. Reading a teleprompter (written by you or someone else, who knows?) while sounding conversational is really quite a skill. Don't discount it. It's not dissimilar to a professional comic's ability to sound spontaneous on his 100'th gig of the year.

"A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10" - Donald J Trump

Well I hate to stereotype, but that is usually true for Beauty Queens, swimsuit models, and mega famous Hollywood actresses. Just saying. I remember when Bubba complained that one of his bimbos was flat chested. Can’t remember if he was talking about Hillary or some other female. Didn’t they make a movie starring Bo Derek called Ten? Not an issue with me. No matter....or yes it matters!

The Puritans are coming, the Puritans are coming!! The Victorian Puritans are coming to a campus near you. And here I thought young people liked college cause it got them away from their Puritan parents.

Public University’s Ban on ‘Sexually Suggestive’ Posters Is Insanely Puritanical

“In the 1960s–80s, the sexual revolution championed sexual freedom and the open expression of sexuality — and it was a largely liberal, progressive cause. Are things, at least in some instances, starting to flip? After all, these sorts of restrictive policies are being espoused not by the Right but by the Left. I’m not, of course, saying that there aren’t conservatives who are socially, well, conservative (Hi, Rick Santorum!), but I also can’t help but notice how often efforts to censor sexual expression are promoted by the Left and opposed by the Right.....

Look — it’s not that I don’t understand why someone wouldn’t want to have to look at frat guys’ boobie posters. I personally never really enjoy seeing them; I don’t really need the reminder of my own flat-chestedness. The truth is, though, even if a college kid wanted to have full-on pornography on the wall in his room at a public university, that right should be his — and so should the consequences of having a huge percentage of women exercise their right to leave as soon as they walk in when they see it.“

WHY ARE BERNIE BROS SO VIOLENT? Remembering James Hodgkinson.


As I noted earlier, James O’Keefe released a series of videos today that feature a Bernie Sanders campaign worker named Kyle Jurek. They are in the usual undercover format used by Project Veritas. Jurek says many shocking things. He promises that Milwaukee will “burn” if Sanders doesn’t get the Democratic nomination, and vows to attack police officers. He endorses the Soviet Gulag in particular, and Communist re-education camps in general. He talks about “revolution” and suggests that anyone who opposes the Bernie Sanders revolution will be shot. He comes out against free speech. Jurek advocates sentencing billionaires to hard labor “breaking rocks” and approves of Antifa. His language is vulgar and threats of violence are interspersed through his conversation.

Democrats are already in damage control mode on Twitter. You can see the Project Veritas videos as well as some of the Democrats’ responses on O’Keefe’s Twitter feed. Democrats describe Jurek as a volunteer, which he isn’t. He is a paid staffer in Iowa (or was until today). He was described as a “top-tier organizer” by Sanders’ senior campaign officials in Iowa, who have now closed down their social media accounts.

One Democrat on Twitter described Jurek as “a random, drunk, low-level organizer for Bernie.” That’s really the question: how typical of the Bernie movement is this thoroughly disgusting creature? O’Keefe says the Jurek videos are only the beginning, and he hints that there are more videos coming, featuring more Sanders employees and volunteers. We will see.

Meanwhile, there is one thing we can say for sure. To paraphrase John Lennon, Kyle Jurek may be a violent Communist dreamer, but he’s not the only one. James Hodgkinson, another Bernie Bro, has already done some of the worst things that Jurek threatens. The liberal press has tried to bury the fact that Hodgkinson, a Sanders volunteer and hard-core labor unionist, shot up a group of Republican Congressmen, and would have succeeded in murdering the House Majority Whip, but for the miracles of modern medicine. In that case, Sanders was quick to condemn political violence. If asked, I suppose he would distance himself from Jurek, too. But how many more are there where Hodgkinson and Jurek came from? How extreme is the Bernie Sanders movement, really?


I guess violence just appeals to socialists!

OH NOES! The pony tail of ignorance's favorite porn star lawyer keeps getting deeper in the kimchi. I wonder if the po' ol' fakenewsmans stormy doll has worn out?? The world wonders.

LOS ANGELES—Ex-Stormy Daniels lawyer and Trump antagonist Michael Avenatti was led out of the State Bar Court in Los Angeles by federal agents on Tuesday evening.

The arrest occurred outside the disciplinary hearing in which the State Bar of California has accused the hard-charging, tough-talking attorney of using a doctored document to scam a client out of nearly $840,000, funneling money from a lawsuit settlement fund to his own personal use.
The State Bar of California, the official attorney licensing agency, has sought to put Avenatti on “involuntary inactive status,” setting in motion a timeline for disbarment proceedings.

During a break in testimony, members of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, who are prosecuting Avenatti in a separate criminal matter in Orange County, parleyed with Avenatti's team of lawyers and took the lawyer into custody.

"I understand that Mr. Avenatti has been arrested by the federal authorities for violating the terms of his release," said attorney Steven Bledsoe, who represents the alleged Avenatti victim in the State Bar case and was present when the arrest occurred.

The wokesters seek to destroy science in the name of wokeness -

A new column published in the Wall Street Journal this week makes the case that “social justice” dogmas are being adopted by the science faculty at American colleges and universities around the country.

Peter W. Wood, the president of the National Association of Scholars, penned a column for the Wall Street Journal that was published on Sunday. Wood makes the case that social justice dogma, including the pernicious “cancel culture,” has made its way into the science disciplines.

Some critics of the “social justice” worldview have argued that the dangerous ideology would never impact serious areas of study, such as the mathematics and science.

However, some scientists have noticed a changing tide in the sciences. Scientists that diverge from the popular consensus within academia on certain topics are deemed “problematic” by their colleagues. Events are canceled when panel guests are not diverse enough.

Wood provides several examples of the dogma’s reach into the sciences including scientist Francis Collins’ recent declaration that he won’t speak on panels that don’t feature women.

Cancel culture in various forms is taking root in American science and elsewhere. Last July Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, announced that he would decline invitations to speak on panels at scientific conferences where women are not among the speakers. That idea has spread rapidly, and several organizations have begun to penalize conferences that don’t meet a quota of women. The Third International Brain Stimulation Conference held in Vancouver last February took steps to find additional female neuroscientists, so that six of its 20 featured talks were by women. A software conference scheduled for October in Dresden was canceled for failure to attract female speakers.

Wood is concerned that scientists will become so concerned with filling diversity quotas that they will forget that their primary purpose is to produce scholarship and research that improves society.

“The sex or race of scientists has no bearing on the quality of their work,” Wood concludes.

The socialists dems are true mullah cuddlers but the vets are not taking any of that shit from them-

A Republican lawmaker and US Army veteran spent roughly two minutes of his allotted speaking time in silence during a House hearing with former US officials on Tuesday.
Rep. Brian Mast of Florida, a retired US Army bomb technician and Purple Heart recipient, gave his colleagues the silent treatment to make a point in favor of the US killing of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani.

Mast argued against the caution from his Democratic colleagues on the Foreign Affairs Committee, saying that Soleimani was a threat regardless of what exactly he was doing on the visit to Iraq when he died.

"Just because [a] machine gun nest might be taking a moment to reload, that doesn't mean that it's not an imminent threat," Mast said.

As the leader of the Iranian paramilitary group known as the Quds Force, Soleimani trained militants who attacked the US with sophisticated explosives.

Mast, a bomb disposal specialist, was injured by an improvised explosive device in 2010 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. His injuries required both of his legs to be amputated.

"If you walk about this hallway ... you're going to come to several beautiful walls that have the names of our fallen service members from the war on terror," Mast said. "And I would ask, can any of you provide me with one name on that wall that doesn't justify killing Soleimani?"
"I got two minutes and 30 seconds. I'll be more than happy to sit here and wait," Mast added, before the silence. "Somebody provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify his killing."

The chairman of the committee, Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, interrupted the presentation: "The gentleman may continue," Engel said.
"I'm continuing, Mr. Chairman. I got two minutes remaining," Mast said. "I will sit here and wait for somebody to provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify the killing of Soleimani."

"Thank you, Mr. Mast," Engel said. "I think you have made your point."

The hearing briefly went off the rails as the two lawmakers had a heated exchange on decorum.

"Mr. Chairman, I have not yielded back my time," Mast said.

"You are disrupting," Engel said, adding that Mast was "out of order."

After Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota yielded some of his time to Mast, the Republican continued his silent protest.

"I will note that there was no response of one name offered that did not justify the killing of Soleimani," Mast said after the pause.

The tense exchange illustrated the differing opinions of the two parties on Capitol Hill after the killing of Soleimani.

Soleimani was killed in a US-led airstrike shortly after arriving in Baghdad, Iraq, on January 3.

Senator Bernie Sanders falsely claimed in his closing remarks in the Democratic debate that half of the country was earning just $9 to $10 an hour.

Claim: “How does it happen in the richest country in the history of the world that half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck, trying to get by on nine to ten bucks an hour?”

Facts: A forty-hour workweek at $10 dollars per hour would equal an annual income of $20,800. In fact, the median household income in the United States was $63,179.

George Rebane

At this morning's news conference Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler each assured the nation that the House hearings uncovered "overwhelming evidence" to impeach Trump, evidence which is being sent to the Senate with its Articles of Impeachment. Anything that has surfaced since is just icing on the Democrats' cake. But then a couple of minutes later, they all reversed and put out the word to their lackeys that since impeachment the real compelling evidence has surfaced which would convict Trump, and its inclusion in the trial is a must, else the trial would (somehow) be unconstitutional. In short, the evidence developed over weeks of House hearings is really deficient, which makes one ask, 'Then why did you vote to impeach?' You really can't make any of this crap up, it all happens in the public forum with cameras running.

"The decision to avoid reporters in the spin room appears to be a deliberate strategy by the Buttigieg campaign, perhaps in an attempt to avoid gaffes or difficult questions. President Donald Trump took the opposite approach in his primary run in 2015-2016, often lingering in the spin room for more than an hour to talk to as many reporters as cared to ask him anything."

The troll @853 is either just bad at deflection or really does not understand what median income is.

;-)

George Rebane

@853am - For our leftists innumeracy is always an enduring curse. And blindly following their socialist demogauges doubles the deficit.

"The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a median personal income of $865 weekly for all full-time workers in 2017. The U.S Bureau of the Census has the annual median personal income at $31,099 in 2016. Real per-capita disposable income was $45,646 as of October, 2019."

Before the full impact of Trump's economic surge, this computed to more than $21.60/hr. Even under Obama's anemic recovery the median wage came to $15.55/hr. And considering "real per-capita disposable (after tax) income" this is now effectively more than $22.80/hr for every worker who can fog a mirror. That is why I point out that the real and impactive Big Lies come from Democrats, especially from their leading lights like Bernie Sanders.

We have the spectacle of John Kerry defending Obama’s policy with an explanation like this one last week reported by the Washington Free Beacon: “Kerry on $1.7 Billion Payment to Iran: ‘We Gave Them a Little Bit of Money’”

“The Warren campaign reportedly responded with a fundraising email stating that the candidate was disappointed that Sanders had called her every single day since 2016 to say that women should never be allowed in public without a male escort but that she didn’t want to discuss the matter further and risk being divisive.”

Quotes

For the record: “I think what the administration did in the Soleimani case is absolutely correct. I think it’s the right thing to do.” —Obama National Security Advisor Jim Jones

Machinations: “Senators are required to be present for the duration of an impeachment trial. So by holding on to the impeachment articles for so long, Speaker Pelosi is rigging the Iowa caucuses for Biden. Once again, the Democrat Party establishment is trying to sideline Bernie Sanders.” —House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy

Authenticity doesn’t equal suitability: “Bernie is the only person on that [debate] stage who believes what he’s saying. The only problem is what he’s saying is horrifying.” —David Harsanyi

Observations: “Sorry to be radical, but maybe the real problem is women thinking being a mom is an inconvenience to their ambitions.” —Allie Beth Stuckey

Friendly fire: “[Elizabeth Warren] had breakout moments [last night], but did anyone on that stage really seem ready to take on Trump in a debate? If we want a Democrat to win the White House (which I certainly do) we need our candidates to start showing up a lot stronger.” —Van Jones

Braying jackass: “I think if there were no tensions [with Iran], if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families. This is something that happens when you have conflict and war. Innocents bear the brunt of it and it is a reminder why all of us need to work so hard on de-escalation, moving forward to reduce tensions and find a pathway that doesn’t involve further conflict and killing.” —Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Non compos mentis: “I was in Tehran when they were chanting ‘Death to America’ once. I was at a rally, the people couldn’t have been more friendly to me personally as an American. It sort of felt like a thing and a trope as opposed to anything that was actually seriously meant and considered.” —CNN’s Erin Burnett

What could possibly go wrong? “The Department of Education already has broad legal authority to cancel student debt, and we can’t afford to wait for Congress to act. So I will start to use existing laws on day one of my presidency to implement my student loan debt cancellation plan that offers relief to 42 million Americans.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

And last… “Warren supporters are applying the ‘believe women’ slogan to this dispute between her and Sanders. They’re literally claiming that we should believe women in EVERY situation, not just with sexual assault. Women never lie about anything, they say. Insane. Just insane.” —Matt Walsh

Hmmm. If men are pigs and women are equal to men, what does that make women? The squabble continues.

When I became a professional musician in the mid 60's average pay for full time musicians playing 5 nights a week was $300 a week. That's when you could rent a modest apartment for $100 a month, if you can find anything. Now equivilant housing costs $1000 a month, that's a 10 times increase. If musicians earnings would have kept up they would now be making $12,000 a month.

Just a perspective from my experience. I'm sure other occupations have near the same numbers.

exactly the prevailing federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. About

From Instapundit!


Anatomy of a Cancel Culture Smear: Vince Vaughn Edition.


We’re told the actor once supported Libertarian Ron Paul and helped conservative talker Glenn Beck produce a documentary feature.

The horror, the horror.

Worst of all? Vaughn supports training and arming school teachers so kids aren’t sitting ducks during a school shooting.

Most controversially, he came out as vehemently opposed to gun control in a 2015 interview for British GQ, going so far as to call for firearms to be allowed in schools: “You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. And we should be allowed the same rights.” Shaking Donald Trump’s hand is a pretty modest entry on his list of most liberally objectionable acts.

Next, The Guardian is aghast that a whiff of conservatism is still permitted in La La Land. The article cites the Oscar-nominated “Hacksaw Ridge,” directed by Mel Gibson, as an example of this curse.

“[It’s] a reminder, rather like the industry’s enduring celebration of Clint Eastwood, that Hollywood’s quiet conservative contingent can still make its presence felt.

If only that sliver of thought could be banned entirely.


I had no idea what Vaughn’s politics were when I came across this Facebook item by Colby Smith yesterday morning:

(Reposted with permission.)


When I was in Iraq, in 2005, I was stationed in an extremely dangerous area. At the time, the most hostile combat area in the world. We lost a lot of good men and our base was mortared or shot at almost daily. Leaving the wire was worse in terms of violence.

I say all of this because no one stopped at any of the FOBs under 108th Armor’s control.

No one.

We heard that comedians, actors/actresses, cheerleaders and musicians were visiting the troops in Baghdad, or in Taji, or in Tallil, but they’d never stop in Mahmudiyah. They’d never endanger themselves by visiting the Triangle of Death.
No one, except Vince Vaughn.

Vince stopped at FOB St. Michael purely because he was told that no one stopped there. He went around our base, talking with every soldier. He signed photos and took photos while holding a sign that said, “If you can dodge an IED, you can dodge a ball.”

He even sat and played me, a lowly medic, in NCAA football in our haphazard, poorly constructed smoke shack. He played as Virginia Tech, if I remember, and I played as Texas Tech.

He was relaxed even though we were mortared when he landed and he had to lay on the helipad (everyone around him was still standing as we were accustomed to it, but we won’t fault him for that.)

Here’s the thing. We had lost multiple men in the days leading up to his visit and the constant combat was exhausting… but Vince Vaughn is an entertainer, and he used his skills to enable us, for just a few hours, to forget the horrors of the conflict we were in at great danger to himself.

So, sure, nobodies behind a keyboard will fault him for shaking the President’s hand. Nobodies will say that he needs to be canceled. Hollywood hacks who flew over our base will judge him. But I, for one, know better. I know that he’s a hero and that I will support him in his endeavors as he supported me in mine.

Please, let others know about what Vince did. He deserves credit, although, I know, he’s asked for none.


Vaughn seems like one of Hollywood’s rare off-screen good guys.

,,,Trump's got a thing for Putin,,,

'''Early in his administration, for instance, Trump is eager to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin — so much so, the authors write, “that during the transition he interrupts an interview with one of his secretary of state candidates” to inquire about his pressing desire: “When can I meet Putin? Can I meet with him before the inaugural ceremony?” he asks.'''

,,,No way Trump is corrupt,,,

'''In spring 2017, Trump also clashed with Tillerson when he told him he wanted his help getting rid of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a 1977 law that prevents U.S. firms and individuals from bribing foreign officials for business deals.

“It’s just so unfair that American companies aren’t allowed to pay bribes to get business overseas,” Trump says, according to the book. “We’re going to change that.”

The president, they go on to explain, was frustrated with the law “ostensibly because it restricted his industry buddies or his own company’s executives from paying off foreign governments in faraway lands.”'

'''By the way, I have great respect for China. I have many Chinese friends. They live in my buildings all over the place.''' - Donald J Trump

"A former commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the FBI says played a role in a 1996 terrorist attack that killed 19 U.S. servicemen, accompanied Iraq’s prime minister to the White House on Monday, attending an event at which President Obama trumpeted the end of the Iraq War.

Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, transportation minister in Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government, was part of the delegation that visited the White House to discuss Iraq’s future and Iran’s influence there, among other topics.

At a joint White House news conference with Mr. al-Maliki, Mr. Obama proclaimed that the U.S. is committed to being a major player in the region and that Iraq’s neighbors should take heed. He did not mention Iran by name."
