Ohio Town Rolls Out Red Carpet for Homeless. Is Shocked When Stream of Homeless Show Up.


They just wanted to do the right thing. The small town of Middletown, Ohio, a town of 49,000 people, has opened all manner of homeless services. There is everything from soup kitchens and shelters that allow you to be high and drunk to rehab facilities to sober up.

And that's the problem. You can come to Middletown to stay drunk and high and get three hots and a cot without having to do much.

Now the homeless are swamping the town. Residents who call Middletown home are shocked that "about 75%" of the homeless are from someplace else, according to the former police chief.

Of course they are.



Chief Wiggum weighs in.........


Before retiring last September, Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw wrote a Facebook post that accused nearby towns of dumping their homeless and drug-addled in Middletown......



Gee.....ya think!?

This gives me a good idea for a business. It'll be a sort of REIT except we'll invest in lawyers and the Advocacy Industrial Complex. We'll hire poor people (and screen them for the most photo-worthy), scout for empty dwellings, move 'em in, swing in the lawyers and protestors to hang onto the thing, turn it into a rental in a couple of years. Once it's a rental, use Russian private security to evict people if needed.

Accept the new lawless society. Prosper in the new lawless society.

This could work. Organized on the bigly scale, some serious dosh could be made.

MEANWHILE, OVER AT VODKAPUNDIT: Iran Retaliated, Sort Of: So Now What? “Trump’s attitude seems to be that if the Mullahs want peace, they can have it. If they don’t, he’ll do to the next guy what he did to Suleimani. If last night’s ‘retaliation’ is anything to go by, Tehran seems to be very receptive to Trump all of a sudden. Iran reportedly alerted both Baghdad and Washington, quietly, that an attack was imminent, and then made sure the missiles were badly targeted. Hence, zero casualties. The harmless explosions were mostly for domestic propaganda purposes, so the Mullahs have something to show the people on TV and claim to have killed a jillion infidels with their mighty missiles or whatever. But the whole world knows exactly what they just saw: Tehran backing down after Trump ordered the death of their terror mastermind.”

Here comes the Occupy Wall Street crowd again...

In the December issue of Harper’s, Wes Enzinna shares his preposterous personal odyssey under the headline “Down and Out in Silicon Valley.” Housing is indeed absurdly expensive in the Bay Area, for reasons that are largely political rather than organic, but Enzinna’s story, colorful as it is (he took up residence in a shack with no plumbing), tells us nothing useful about that. Early in his career, Enzinna moved to work “at an investigative reporting magazine in San Francisco,” by which I assume he is politely indicating Mother Jones, the investigative-reporting magazine in San Francisco where his work has appeared. “My situation,” he writes, “was evidence of how distorted the Bay Area housing market had become, the brutality inflicted upon the poor now trickling up to everyone but the super-rich.

His situation was no such thing.

For personal reasons, he had decided to keep paying rent and residential bills on an apartment in New York City, which, like San Francisco and environs, is very expensive. Enzinna is a 2010 graduate of the graduate journalism program at Berkeley, and his problem is that while working as an early-career magazine journalist he could not afford to rent homes in New York City and the Bay Area simultaneously.

Our Elites Are Steering Us Towards Civil War

They are as clueless as the ancien régime

“The peaceful transfer of power that accompanies a free election is only possible on the basis of civic friendship and trust; each side must believe that, win or lose, the rights of the minority will be protected by those who take power. On both sides today, that trust seems to be slipping. While most Americans acknowledge the fact that America is deeply divided, many of our leaders remain in denial about the potential result of this growing, fundamental distrust. We are confronting again the dire situation New Birth describes prior to the Civil War: “both parties [see] the contest as a zero-sum enterprise in which the advantages of one side [are] losses to the other. From this viewpoint, ballots can never really substitute for bullets.” Not for the first time in our nation’s history, if this state of affairs continues force may be embraced as the only alternative when reason fails. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. We must fervently hope that things will change before they become violent. But if the clueless attitudes of our sclerotic elite remain unaltered, it is not hard to see what’s on the horizon.“

Will the NRA start getting damage judgments against the liberal cities that tried to destroy it? -

Not long ago, progressive state and local officials nationwide were vowing to take down the hated National Rifle Association by targeting its pocketbook. When city authorities in Los Angeles and San Francisco gave that idea a try, they were following the lead of Governor Andrew Cuomo, who had unleashed New York financial regulators to go after the gun-rights organization’s access to insurance and banking services.

Now all three are facing a reckoning in court, based not on the Second Amendment but on the First. Without needing to even consider the issue of gun rights, federal courts are recognizing that boycotts enforced by government power can menace free speech and free association.

The amusing part is that the public officials themselves are helping to provide the basis for these rulings by tweeting and speechifying about how much damage they intend to do the NRA.

One reason the California disputes went so well for the NRA is that the officials just couldn’t help grandstanding at every turn in search of followers’ applause. That’s how O’Farrell, in Los Angeles, helped tweet his side of the case right out of court. But Cuomo, while he’s been more circumspect, has not covered himself as thoroughly as he might have. “If I could have put the NRA out of business, I would have done it 20 years ago,” he declared in response to one legal development.

Tell us more, Governor.

Five Years Later, We Still Haven’t Learned from the Charlie Hebdo Massacre

“For a brief moment after attack, the free world rallied around Charlie Hebdo. “Je suis Charlie” became a global rallying cry. The massive march through the streets of Paris that followed included virtually every major world leader, including those hypocrites who are happy to clamp down on free expression in their own nations. One leader conspicuously, and embarrassingly, absent from the proceedings was the president of the United States, Barack Obama. He sent the U.S. ambassador to France instead.

It’s worth remembering some of the Left’s passive-aggressive victim-blaming after the second attack. “Shooting people is wrong,” wrote The Daily Beast’s Arthur Chu, a guy who puts quotation marks around “free speech” when the thoughts being expressed offend his sensibilities. But, he warned, do not martyr the “trolling” satirists of Charlie Hebdo, and do not act in a way that “valorizes free speech for its own sake.” The latter is an argument we hear all the time today.

Taking a slightly different tack than Chu, Max Fisher at Vox lamented that these white French people were punching down at powerless brown people. Fisher now works at the New York Times, a publication that has no compunction punching down when it comes to American Christians. If an anti-abortion extremist shot up a major newspaper, would anyone argue that “the shooting was terrible, but we really should start thinking about pulling our rhetorical punches when it comes Evangelical conservatives or pro-lifers?” Doubtful.

Criticism of Islam is a completely legitimate form of political speech, as is criticism of Catholicism and Mormonism and Judaism and Scientology, all of which Charlie Hebdo has also satirized. We have no responsibility to “respect” anyone’s ideas about the world, or the afterworld, nor do we have any right to expect to live in a world free of offense. The argument that a subset of people — in this case Muslims — should be afforded special protections from open discourse is itself a bigoted way of saying you don’t believe Muslims can live peacefully in the free world.......

In any event, the trial of the terrorists who help facilitate the Charlie Hebdo massacre began this week. Only five of the 24 jihadists who helped plan the attack will be appearing in court. The other 19 suspects, most of them dead, had long ago left to fight in Iraq and Syria with ISIS. They were probably really mad about the tone of French political cartoons.

In the meantime, Charlie Hebdo should remind us that giving a bunch of religious extremists or government bureaucrats veto power over our speech is a terrible idea. It does nothing to make us safer. It only makes us less free.“

HOT AIR ON ENERGY
“Ask a climatista who is the leader in climate action in Europe and you’re likely to get a word salad about Germany’s energiewende (“energy revolution”), which has seen the Fourth Reich spend something like $1 trillion Euros on “green” energy over the last 25 years. Worth mentioning in passing that when I visited Germany on an energy junket as a guest of the German government in 2008, every expert we met said that Germany couldn’t possibly meet its 2020 or 2030 greenhouse gas targets unless they kept their nuclear power, which the Green Party had demanded be phased out as a condition for joining the coalition government back then. And then came the Fukushima in 2011, and Germany’s very worst ever Chancellor-Without-a-Mustache decided to phrase out nuclear power even faster, apparently fearful of tsunamis from the Rhine River or something.”

AOC Wants Dem Party Purged of Non-Leftists
Get on board with socialism or get out. That's Ocasio-Cortez's tolerant message.

“In truth, if AOC were simply wanting to reform the Democrat Party, she’d be much more amiable to compromise as preservation and restoration would be the goal. But AOC isn’t a reformer; she’s a revolutionary. The Washington Examiner’s Kaylee McGhee concludes, “She’s not here to fix the political system; she’s here to burn it down. It’s clear she has no intention of stopping any time soon.””

GERMANY’S GREEN ENERGY FACEPLANT
No sooner do I post an item yesterday about Germany’s pathetic energiewende than the thesis is confirmed today in, of all places, the New York Times!

“German journalist and Times op-ed contributor Jochen Bittner today writes of “The Tragedy of Germany’s Energy Experiment,” where these familiar-sounding highlights appear:“.......

“The epidemiology behind the claims of large health effects from conventional air pollution is likely shakier than we are usually told, but it is still notable that even the slowest of learners among the environmental left are actually starting to recognize that real life involves tradeoffs. I never thought I’d live long enough to see any environmentalists express second thoughts publicly about their previous reflexive anti-nuclear position, but here we are.”

U.S. officials confident Iran shot down passenger jet

U.S. officials are confident Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner in the hours after the Iranian missile attack on U.S. targets earlier this week, CBS News has learned.

U.S. intelligence picked up signals of the radar being turned on and satellite detected infrared blips of two missile launches, probably SA-15s, followed shortly by another infrared blip of an explosion.

The current thinking is the plane, Ukraine International Flight 752, was mistakenly targeted, CBS News' Kris Van Cleave reports.

President Trump said Thursday it could have been a mistake.

Federal officials were briefed on this intelligence Thursday morning. A source who was in the briefing said it appears missile components were found near the crash site, Van Cleave reports.

Blew it for sure -

The gaping hole in this argument, and the reason Democrats are losing the debate, is that they’ve already claimed to have conclusive evidence of Trump’s wrongdoing. They claimed they had proof of bribery, but they didn’t include it in the impeachment articles. They claimed to have proof in the Mueller report that Trump obstructed justice, yet it’s not in the article of impeachments either. Rubin herself has alleged, dozens of times, that we already have definitive proof Trump has committed an impeachable offense.

In truth, if the House had made a persuasive case, there would be public pressure on Republicans to act in a different manner. That the House did not is the only reason Pelosi embraced John Dean’s silly idea — which has drastically backfired.

Daily quotes from this time in space

For the record: “This is a parody of impeachment. House Democrats said they had to rush to vote before Christmas because President Trump poses a clear and present danger, but now the urgency is gone. The House didn’t subpoena John Bolton, the former national security adviser, but now the Senate must call him or the trial won’t be fair. The House refused to call witnesses requested by the GOP minority, but now the Senate GOP majority is supposed to heed every request by the Democratic minority.” —The Wall Street Journal

Non compos mentis I: “We should have a foreign policy that is focused on climate change and not endless wars.” —Ben Rhodes

Non compos mentis II: “We should not be allowing plastic. And what we should do is phasing [sic] it out.” —Joe Biden

Grand delusions: “What scares me is every time you go back to the scientists, they tell you two things: It’s worse than we thought, and we have less time. That means we’ve got to be willing to do things, for example, like regulation. By 2028, no new buildings, no new houses, without a zero carbon footprint.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

The BIG Lie: “I believe that President Obama had a strategy … that would prevent Iran from becoming nuclear. There weren’t these incidents during the Obama administration. We didn’t have protests against our embassies, the killing of American contractors. Americans were safe at that time.” —Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) (As Charlie Kirk put it, “4 years ago Iran captured US Troops, held them captive, and made them pose for humiliating photos. John Kerry ‘thanked’ Iran for how our troops were treated. Barack Obama sent them $1.7 billion in cash just weeks later.” And that’s not to mention four dead Americans, including a U.S. ambassador, at our consulate in Benghazi.)

Braying jackass: “We live in a time where Republicans pretty much right now the party of hypocrisy. It’s not the old Republican Party, the party of principles, the party of values, the party of Max Boot … where character counts. It’s a party of hypocrisy.” —CNN’s Don Lemon

And last… “[Democrats] mourn Soleimani more than they mourn [with] our Gold Star families who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani.” —Rep. Doug Collins

George Rebane

Did Pelosi lie when she said before Christmas that the impeachment had to be rushed through because Trump posed a clear and present danger to the Republic that was becoming more imminent every day?

That 15 minutes ran out fast, must be how warm and cuddly her presentations are -

‘Poll Finds Most People Would Rather Be Annihilated By Giant Tidal Wave Than Continue To Be Lectured By Climate Change Activists,” the Babylon Bee reported in December, adding in an attached news story that one man’s response to hearing “just 30 seconds of a Greta Thunberg lecture” was to scrawl on the survey form, “Come, sweet death.”

The Bee was, as usual, ahead of the pack, but these days it’s becoming common for even left-leaning comics to mock Thunberg. “Iconic”? “Courageous”? Nah. Just tiresome. Far from being a visionary difference-maker who put it all on the line for her righteous cause, Thunberg is increasingly being derided as just another hyperemotional, tantrum-prone, attention-seeking teen brat.

Joan of Arc became Veruca Salt.

Ricky Gervais (a lifelong lefty) saw the opportunity at the Golden Globes Sunday when he smacked the audience and the tiny Nordic doom-monger with a classic double punchline: “You know nothing about the real world,” he told a ballroom full of celebrities. “Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.” BBC Scotland ran a skit in which comics playing Thunberg’s parents talk about all of the fun they’ve been having while she’s been away and blanch when she returns. When the BBC starts making fun of Greta Thunberg, it’s like L’Osservatore Romano satirizing the pope.

Meanwhile, Thunberg has become shorthand for environmentally based vapidity, which becomes all the funnier the more clueless earnestness with which it is delivered. After fashion designer Stella McCartney presented Joaquin Phoenix as the new world champion of climate-change activism for committing to (top this!) wearing only one tuxedo during Hollywood awards season, the deluge of mockery that followed on Twitter included lots of collateral comic damage to Thunberg. Personal favorite: the British man who replied, “f*** me. I wore the same undercrackers for over a month before I got some new ones for crimbo [Christmas]. I’m basically a sexy, bald, bloody Greta Thunberg.”

On The Last Leg, a British chat show, comic Rosie Jones (who has cerebral palsy and is no one’s idea of a bully) made a dirty joke at Thunberg’s expense on New Year’s Eve, and another standup, Josh Widdicombe, called Thunberg “the first person to perfect the art of bunking school.” Days later, Dave Chappelle joked about Thunberg in a San Francisco set. I don’t know what Chappelle said, but a San Francisco Chronicle writer who declined to quote the remark instead wrote, “Let’s just say the 17-year-old activist irks him, to put it mildly, rather than going into detail about Chappelle’s joke involving R. Kelly and [Thunberg].” Do tell.

from DonB's article:

"The CNN analyst wasn't the only journalist who expressed that sentiment. NBC News correspondent Heidi Przybyla said that the plane crash was "at minimum, related to crossfire." The Atlantic staff writer Anne Applebaum similarly wrote that Ukraine was "sucked in to a geopolitical conflict created by others" and that plane was caught "in the crossfire.""

Ya know, a more cynical person than me might say that they probably are all on the same private mailing list and picked up on some thought leader that steered the hivemind. As far as the press is concerned, it ain't too different than merely getting marching orders from KAOS.

Of course, by the time the crack news team reaches out and blearily tears a sheet off the teletype it's probably too late. On the other hand, it's always 4:20 somewhere.

The female is described as a “suspected suicide bomber.”
The report stated that according to HSI, the group already traveled through Guatemala, Belize, and is currently in Veracruz, Mexico. The described group is expected to travel to San Luis Rio Colorado in the Mexican state of Sonora, just south of Arizona.
“HSI reported they received information the group will be making entry into the U.S. through the All-American Canal in the next couple of days,” the report revealed. The All-American Canal is located in California.

I guess you are trying to say that our intelligence services are so awesome that we can find single terrorists walking around anywhere and therefor don’t need a wall.

That would mean Don Juan Trump is no better than a drug lord...

And now this drug lord is witness tampering by not allowing his underlings to testifying...

in the "lock her up is just another bullcrap lie" category --trumpler's crooked justice department investigation into the Clinton's, after two years of tax payer dollars, found ZERO, ZIP, NADA. Absolutely no evidence of any wrongdoing by either Bill, Hillary, or the Clinton Foundation. Unlike the trumpler foundation that was fined and closed down for fraud. Interesting how the trumplicans always seem to accuse the dems of baseless crimes that they themselves are guilty of.

In the AG Barr is a goombahl, category: Adding to the notion the the trumpler justice department is bullcrap, 24,000 members of the New York City Bar association have called for a probe of AG Barr's "troubling pattern of conduct." The statement claims that Barr’s “recent actions and statements position” him and “by extension, the United States Department of Justice, as political partisans willing to use the levers of government to empower certain groups over others. The “troubing pattern of conduct ... threatens public confidence in the fair and impartial administration of justice,” the letter said. His conduct is “inconsistent with the role of the Attorney General in our legal and constitutional system.”

Trumpler was right about one thing... the system and the elections are rigged... but in his favor not America's.

WALSH: Democrats And The Media Are Blaming America Because Iran Shot Down A Passenger Plane. This Is Beyond Despicable.

“Various members of the media said that the plane had been caught in the “crossfire” between Iran and the US. Canadian media personalities called it an “unintended consequence” of Trump’s actions. Seth Abramson, never willing to a lose a Who’s The Biggest Hack contest, pointed the finger at both Trump and Sean Hannity, suggesting that the Iranian government may have been spooked by the cable news host’s broadcast on the night of the missile launch, prompting them to shoot down a plane in panic.”

And a more benign topic:

Should AOC leave the Democrat Party?

“In the interview, the congresswoman who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens complained, "We're not allowed to talk about anything wrong the Democratic Party does." Nonetheless, she went on to complain that "Democrats can be too big of a tent" and that "they let anybody who the cat dragged in call themselves a progressive. There's no standard."

“Perhaps AOC would be happier leaving for another party that let her set the standards.”

“It's normal for Democrats to disagree with other Democrats on certain issues. But the most-left members of the caucus often engage in the narcissism of small differences, building hostility toward Democrats holding views that diverge in minor ways.“

RE Bill 9:09

Yes Bill Trump does impose a " clear and present danger to the Republic that is becoming more imminent every day" because he's mentally ill and has the maturity of a 6 year old. Not a lie at all from Pelosi but a realistic assessment of the mental health of our President.

Trump's "mentally ill and has the maturity of a 6 year old."

Paul hasn't been in the company of mentally ill six year olds. Or even 'normal' six year olds.

No, that isn't a realistic assessment of Trump's mental status... it's what you and other foes of the elected President tell yourselves to give yourself license to work to remove him from office prematurely.

Good luck with that.

Well Gregory you once again confirm that you believe Trumps mental stability is acceptable for a President of the United States. Just what I expected. No surprises here.

Good morning Mr. Emergy. If you think Trump is crazy, just think of all those crazy idiots out there that believed Trump conspired with the Russians to steal an election from Hillary. Those folks take crazy to a whole new level. Like psycho ward crazy. Rubber room crazy. Padded walls crazy. Coco for Cocoa Puffs crazy!

Hey, it you think Trump is crazy, take a look at Paul Krugman now. Probably the Russians did it. It’s Putin’s M.O. to hack economists and download child porn on their computers. Man, that’s crazy.

Gregory

I wrote that Trump, is "mentally ill and has the maturity of a 6 year old" is not a realistic assessment of the mental health of our President.

Punchy then writes (1147am) that means I that I "believe Trumps mental stability is acceptable for a President of the United States".

No Paul, it means I think your claims are not realistic. I also trust the Constitution's remedies for removal of a president from office.

It also means your intellectual powers and emotional stability are not sufficient for that office. Keep your day job.

And Trump will be found NOT GUILTY, by reason of LIBERAL insanity.

Typical example of narcissism from Trump just today:

During his rally in Ohio this Thursday, President Trump suggested to his audience that the recent Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed should have gone to him.

“I made a deal, I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, ‘What, did I have something do with it?'” Trump said. “Yeah. But that’s the way it is. As long as we know, that’s all that matters.”

Paul Emery

Definition of narcissism from the Mayo Clinic. Gregory doesn't have a problem with our President having this personality disorder.

"Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism."

Yup, Trump should invoke exect. privilege to keep Bolton from testifying. "O" did it plenty of times.

If anything else, just to piss off the Left.

Walt

If you recall Trumps main argument against the accusations that led to impeachment was that there were no direct witnesses to Trumps actions. If Trump is innocent Bolton could put an end to the whole thing by supporting that position. Why shouldn't Trump allow him to testify Walt?

Walt

Emery asks a question? You want an answer? Kiss my ass on Broad St. first, or start answering as many as you ask.

Your boy "O" invoked exec. privilege to protect Eric Holder, and in tern, his own sorry ass.

Oh my. Narcissism is personality disorder. Guess that means most politicians and the likes of Cartman are unfit at any speed.

So, we have narcissism as a personality disorder. Boy, that fits Hollywood and most musicians to a tee. So are all those who have selfie sticks, like Obama.

So, Paul, what is your personality disorder? BDS? TDS? Or was something deeper? Probably a pre-existing condition.

Didn't vote for "O" second time Walt because of what I considered a poor first term. I assume you are not going to vote for Trump for the same reasons.
