Life in Kahns londinistan -

A police officer who used a taser to defend himself when being attacked with a machete should be punished for using his weapon, a lawyer has suggested.

Sophie Khan has been slammed after saying she was surprised the Met Police had not started disciplinary proceedings against PC Stuart Outten, 28, after he used “excessive” force against 56-year-old Muhammad Rodwan.

Rodwan hacked at the officer’s head in a “rage” with a freshly-sharpened 2ft-long blade after his van was stopped for having no insurance in Leyton, east London, last August.

He was jailed for 16 years on Friday after being convicted of wounding with intent.

Freudian slip on MSNBC? -

MSNBC’s Sunday anchor Alison Morris made easily the worst reporting gaffe in 2020.

While interviewing sports journalists about the tragic and untimely death of Kobe Bryant, Morris somehow mixed up the “Los Angeles Lakers” with the “Los Angeles N*ggers.”

It’s almost too hard to believe, but it happened.

MSNBC appears to have a 15 second delay, as the word didn’t air in some markets.
Alison Morris has not addressed the slip-up since it occurred. Her Twitter feed has also not made reference to the embarrassing accident.

IS “GREEN” ENERGY A PONZI SCHEME?

Better than the Biden’s?

“The owners of DC Solar are going to jail. But the real malefactors, the businesspeople, activists and politicians who promote subsidies and mandates for “green” energy, are still walking around freely, soaking taxpayers and electricity ratepayers while lining their own pockets. What they are doing is not exactly a Ponzi scheme, but it is infinitely more destructive than the billion-dollar fraud perpetrated by the owners of DC Solar.”

re: BillT@6:16PM

"The key point: the fraudsters “[told] investors they can take advantage of federal tax credits by leasing the generators back to DC Solar.” "

Sweet. That's brilliant. The generator never leaves the yard, assuming it existed. You just get a tax credit. Round and round. Fractional reserve generators. A thing they don't mention is the potential for clawback from the 'buyers'.

I always thought it was bad enough that it's a tax credit rather than something straightforward like a subsidy. Only people who pay a fair amount in taxes can benefit.

It doesn't kill me to have .gov do some basic research here. Battery tech, solar energy, it's all good stuff. The minute you churn a bit of money into distorting the retail market, you get a feeding frenzy of crazy and advantage-taking. Hopefully all the do-gooders buying Tesla cars and powerwalls feel good in bleeding the taxpayers a bit in return for very little help to the environment, if any.

That's the beauty of government as it grows like Topsy. There's always more opportunities to remove money from the folks you don't like and pass to those you do.

Channeling my inner pony tale.

Amid impeachment, Trump's approval rating climbs to highest levels of his presidency

“House Democrats thought that by impeaching President Donald Trump it would impair him heading into 2020—and they may come to regret their decision.

According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, the nation's 45th commander in chief has achieved the highest approval ratings of his presidency, even under impeachment. The Post reports that 44 percent of American adults approve of the job that Trump is doing in office, a significant improvement from his 38 percent rating in late October.

Among registered voters, Trump's rating climbs to 47 percent in the same survey.

Part of a trend?

The Post's survey showing an improvement in Trump's approval rating is one of three recent polls showing similar marks for the president.”

Pushback....it’s about time.

FL Gov. DeSantis Announces New Academic Standards, Kicks Out Common Core

DeSantis stated, “Today we’re announcing that mission has been accomplished. It goes beyond Common Core to embrace common sense.” He added, “We need to measure results… but you need to do that in a way that makes sense.”....

Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran said on Friday, “When you’re trying to remember what’s four times four, and you have to think about it and it’s not automatic, you’re never going to be able to conquer algebra and all those other courses.” Another significant change: students in high school will be taught how to balance their checkbooks and apply for loans in an attempt to teach them financial literacy. That course had heretofore been offered as an elective, not a required course.

Additionally, instead of reading “chunks” of books, meaning excerpts from great books, the new program urges the reading of complete books. Either the SAT and ACT would be required for high school students, as well as the Florida Civic Literacy Test for seniors, which TampaBay.com describes as a “100-question exam to encompass the U.S. citizenship exam plus questions about landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases.”

The Fifth Circuit Rejects the Lie of Transgender Pronouns

“A victory for biological truth, and for linguistic truth”

“Ultimately, the panel majority logically “declined to enlist the federal judiciary in this quixotic undertaking.” Duncan’s courageous refusal to engage in it amounts, in progressive parlance, to “deadnaming” or “misgendering.” For transgender activists and the rest of the “woke” mob, such rogue behavior is akin to malicious aggression. But it is reflective of both the biological truth that sex is immutable and the linguistic truth that, for a language to remain viable, words must have readily discernible meanings.”

"Flying on ATC in very low visibility and the age of the high activity craft with reports of engine issues from the locals on scene paints a picture"


It's a twin turbine aircraft. No engine issues. The painting you're looking at is a stick figure cartoon.

I worked in a building under the final flight path of the accident helo, at about the final 4 second mark, for 4 or 5 years. 30 years and xx lbs ago, rode my bicycle to work on the 101 and had ridden the hills above. Road bike.

Most people have seen the terrain in the MASH TV intro sequence... that's Las Virgenes Road a couple of miles south.

After listening to the ATC recording and watching Juan Brown's take onit, my short take from my perspective of a PP SEL IA with about 1500 hours in fixed wing only is that following the 101 in a climb and confessing to ATC would have led to survival and a possible shitload of paperwork.

The terrain rises fast on either side of the freeway. A 180 degree turn made agressively a few seconds earlier also would have had a happier ending.

An IFR flight all the way really wasn't possible or practicable. Might as well have driven.

DEMOCRATS DETERMINED TO FRACK THEMSELVES

“In Pennsylvania, you’re talking hundreds of thousands of related jobs that would be — they would be unemployed overnight,” said Mr. Fetterman [PA’s lt. governor], who endorsed Mr. Sanders in 2016 before Donald J. Trump won his state, pop. 12.8 million, by just over 44,000 votes. “Pennsylvania is a margin play,” he added. “And an outright ban on fracking isn’t a margin play.”

And don’t forget that Joe Biden has said he’s down with this nonsense, with promises of how there will be so many better “green jobs” with the energy revolution that Washington can deliver with the mere snap of the fingers. He must believe $50,000-a-month natural gas type jobs grow on trees in Ukraine or something. Of course, Hillary made these same promises to coal miners in 2016, too. But no one who doesn’t live in the dream world of a college town believes these kind of political promises any more.

Which is why I hope the Democratic Party runs hard with their anti-energy platform.

Another win for the administration and common sense that may telegraph the beginning of the end of stray judges issuing nation wide injunctions. -

The lawsuits will continue, but immigrants applying for permanent residency must now show they wouldn't be public charges, or burdens to the country.

The new policy significantly expands what factors would be considered to make that determination, and if it is decided that immigrants could potentially become public charges at any point in the future, that legal residency could be denied.

Roughly 544,000 people apply for green cards annually. According to the government, 382,000 are in categories that would make them subject to the new review.

Immigrants make up a small portion of those getting public benefits, since many are ineligible to get them because of their immigration status.

In a separate opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch urged his colleagues to confront the “real problem” of so-called nationwide injunctions, orders issued by a single judge that apply everywhere. In this case, even though the administration won rulings in two different appellate courts covering 14 states, its policy could not take effect.

“What in this gamesmanship and chaos can we be proud of?” Gorsuch wrote in an opinion joined by Justice Clarence Thomas.

George Rebane

DonB 1117am - "The lawsuits will continue, but immigrants applying for permanent residency must now show they wouldn't be public charges, or burdens to the country." That is what was immigration policy in 1949 when the Rebanes stepped off the boat. All immigrants, even the invited ones like us, had to have a 'sponsor' who contracted with the feds to provide for and support their immigrant family for one year. That would be ample time for the new arrivals to find a job and get settled nearby. Our sponsor took care of us for four months, then dad and mom got jobs in the Willimantic thread mill loading thread machines (very crappy jobs) and we moved into a one room 'apartment', there sharing the kitchen and bathroom with the landlady. But that was just the first step up America's great economic ladder for which we were very grateful. Hence I support such an immigration policy.

(Not the death of the boy, which was real, but the assertion that he was murdered by Israeli “settlers.”) The tweet by the Palestinian politician, Hanan Ashrawi, has now been deleted, as has Tlaib’s retweet. But Tlaib’s deletion was silent, with no explanation or apology, or any attempt to correct the misinformation that she had spread to tens of thousands on Twitter.

If only it was so simple, odlah. Ancestry.com should be able to solve the mystery if her father did not assume the identity of someone with the same last name and if public records where available and kept in Somalia. Ancestry.com would help also if the father did not change his last name later when he discovered that former employees of a communist government are not allowed in the US. Mom and sons went to Britain, Omar’s dad and her went to the US later.

Screen shots of now deleted social media posts of Ilan’s uncle saying how beautiful his nephew and niece are (Ilan and her brother/husband) and the same goes for her sister sending her love from Britain to be siblings (Ilhan and her brother/husband). But, screenshots on social media do not stand up as evidence. The “husband” brother has since returned to Britain and the sister and Mother have clammed up in Britain.

The FBI will sort it out. Ilan will not address the issue, claiming it is a character assassin of her character by the Right Wing Nazis. Do not go there ,do not ask.

The thing that makes me laugh is the three of them (husband #1, husband #2, and Ilhan sharing the same abode while going to North Dakota State. If the husband was not her brother, then I wish I was a fly on the wall, lol.

Re: Federal judges issuing nationwide injunctions.

Yes, this topic has been touched on today, but I wish to drive it home. Justice Clarance Thomas has been sounding the alarm on the issue for some time now and saying that the issue needs to be addressed. I like Justice Gorsuch’s reasoning....especially considering we are a Republic and dove tails with Federalist thinking.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/neil-gorsuch-issues-savage-rebuke-to-activist-judges-and-nationwide-injunctions/

"Today the Court (rightly) grants a stay, allowing the government to pursue (for now) its policy everywhere save Illinois. But, in light of all that’s come before, it would be delusional to think that one stay today suffices to remedy the problem. The real problem here is the increasingly common practice of trial courts ordering relief that transcends the cases before them. Whether framed as injunctions of 'nationwide,' 'universal,' or 'cosmic' scope, these orders share the same basic flaw—they direct how the defendant must act toward persons who are not parties to the case," Gorsuch wrote.

Equitable remedies, like remedies in general, are meant to redress the injuries sustained by a particular plaintiff in a particular lawsuit. When a district court orders the government not to enforce a rule against the plaintiffs in the case before it, the court redresses the injury that gives rise to its jurisdiction in the first place. But when a court goes further than that, ordering the government to take (or not take) some action with respect to those who are strangers to the suit, it is hard to see how the court could still be acting in the judicial role of resolving cases and controversies. Injunctions like these thus raise serious questions about the scope of courts’ equitable powers under Article III," he explained.

"It has become increasingly apparent that this Court must, at some point, confront these important objections to this increasingly widespread practice. As the brief and furious history of the regulation before us illustrates, the routine issuance of universal injunctions is patently unworkable, sowing chaos for litigants, the government, courts, and all those affected by these conflicting decisions," he wrote.

These nationwide injunctions create confusion and "tend to force judges into making rushed, high-stakes, low-information decisions."

"The rise of nationwide injunctions may just be a sign of our impatient times. But good judicial decisions are usually tempered by older virtues," the Supreme Court justice insisted.

"There are currently more than 1,000 active and senior district court judges, sitting across 94 judicial districts, and subject to review in 12 regional courts of appeal. Because plaintiffs generally are not bound by adverse decisions in cases to which they were not a party, there is a nearly boundless opportunity to shop for a friendly forum to secure a win nationwide," Gorsuch explained.

Worse, it is possible that plaintiffs can win "conflicting nationwide injunctions."

It's not dissimilar to the thinking that sez it's better to have 100% poor people instead of 95% middle class and 5% rich.

The unspoken truth of the matter is that, in terms of public policy, there is really only one minority in the US. It seems to confuse both editorialists and Asian parents.

Dunno what our robot overlords will make of all this once they cast a bleary eye on the matter. Perhaps there'll be no need for math curricula outside of hobbyists.

When I grew up, we had one Filipino family in the area. Nice folks, the kid played with my brother a lot in our house and his parents and my parents had many dinners in each others’ homes. Filipinos were classified as white. If you go back far enough, Hispanics were classified as white too for the forms.

Re: the fiery dustup between Sec of State Pompeo and the NPR reporter. Pompeo, in the heated exchange, said journalists are so dumb they could not find Ukraine on a map. NPR has vigorously defended their journalist and we now have two sides to the story:

“Pompeo asserts Kelly again lied "in agreeing to have our post-interview conversation off the record."“

“Pompeo then had a pop quiz for Kelly, a veteran national security correspondent who has reported from China, Russia and, most recently, Iran.

He asked if I could find Ukraine on a map; I said yes," she continued. "He called out for his aides to bring him a map of the world with no writing, no countries marked. I pointed to Ukraine. He put the map away. He said, 'People will hear about this.'

He ends the statement with an assertion that appears to falsely imply Kelly was unable to locate Ukraine on a map.

"It is worth noting," he concludes with no further explanation, "that Bangladesh is NOT Ukraine."

Money, money, moooonnnniiieeee! Money is the mothers milk of politics -

“Kevin McCarthy’s tireless work ethic has produced a new dynamic, united, and aggressive House Republican Party,” Gingrich told Breitbart News. “Thanks to his efforts, Republicans enter 2020 from a position of strength—with the necessary resources, recruits, and message to win. Kevin’s leadership, along with President Trump on the ballot are why I’m convinced this will be a one-term Democratic majority, and we will be hearing from Speaker McCarthy in 2021.”

More impressively than the new record McCarthy has established heading into the all important 2020 campaign, as Republicans embark on an effort to retake the House majority this year alongside Trump, who is seeking reelection, is the fact that McCarthy set this record from the minority. It’s almost unheard of for a party in the minority to do so well in fundraising, as it is usually easier for the party in the majority to raise big dollars.

[Pompeo] knows this is an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump — that wants to think that [does Trump supporter impersonation with southern accent] ‘Donald Trump’s the smart one, and y’all – y’all elitists are dumb!'”

Daily quotes

Upright: “Effective bias and propaganda isn’t so much about what you say as it is about what you prevent from being heard. Control the flow of information to people and you control people.” —Peter Heck

Narrative buzzkill: “All Mr. Bolton reportedly adds is news of a conversation in which Mr. Trump made a direct connection between the two that nearly everyone already assumed. This still isn’t close to a high crime or misdemeanor.” —The Wall Street Journal

Friendly fire: “Now, I know I’m not the only Jewish candidate running for president. But I am the only one who doesn’t want to turn America into a kibbutz.” —Michael Bloomberg (“While Bloomberg, 77, did not mention [Bernie Sanders], 78, by name, there was no mistaking the reference to the socialist during remarks to potential Jewish Democratic primary voters. Sanders volunteered on an Israeli kibbutz, a communal farm, in the 1960s.” —Washington Examiner)

How? By putting your son on one of their boards? “We can help [the Chinese] with some of their problems.” —Joe Biden

Non compos mentis: “Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.” —Joe Biden

A blast from the past I: “There are many very patriotic Americans who are engaged in the intelligence community. For years, decades now, I have saluted their service. Wherever the decision is, whether it’s from the administration, as was the case in the Bush administration, to withhold information from Congress, I fought that. But you don’t fight it without a price because they come after you. And they don’t always tell the truth about it.” —Nancy Pelosi in 2014

A blast from the past II: “You take on the intelligence community, you’re a person of courage.” —Nancy Pelosi, 2014

Braying jackass: “[Trump’s spokespeople are] like the North Korean army in the Korean War — we should charge without rifles. They don’t even have weapons. They just come out. ‘Take me, take me. I’m willing to say anything for this president.’” —MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

The BIG Lie: “If Senate Republicans are not going to vote to call Mr. Bolton and Mr. Mulvaney and the other witnesses now, if they’re not going to ask for notes and emails, they’re going to be part of the cover-up too.” —Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer

Letting the cat out of the bag: “[Impeachment] does have to do with the elections that are coming up later this year.” —Rep. Jason Crow

And last… “It is rather a surprise to learn that we are all going to die from a coronavirus pandemic considering we already died from swine flu, bird flu, SARS, and ebola.” —Matt Walsh

That fad burned out fast, why pay more for something that's not actually healthier but fits the woke narrative -

We may offer plant-based alternatives again in the future, but we have removed it from the menu for now," said a spokeswoman for Tim Hortons.

The fast-food restaurant chain had introduced the plant-based protein as a limited time offer, the spokeswoman said, adding that: "the product was not embraced by our guests as we thought it would be."

Responding to the removal of its products, Beyond Meat said that it may work with Tim Hortons again in the future.

Tim Hortons said in July it was expanding plant-based meat additions in nearly 4,000 restaurants. There are about 4,800 Tim Hortons restaurants in North America.

Tim Hortons launched breakfast sandwiches with the plant-based sausage patty in June and the plant-based burger patty in July.

Someone lead the pony tail of ignorance to his fainting couch after another dem big push to turn Texas blue was not even close bigger win than Trumps in that district, 58 - 42 sweet -

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Republicans won handily a closely watched special election Tuesday to keep hold of a suburban Houston district that President Donald Trump won easily four years ago, fending off a national blitz by Democrats in a Texas legislative race.

The victory by Republican Gary Gates, who put more than $1.5 million of his own money into his run for state House District 28, is sure to bring a sigh of relief for the GOP in a race that was being tracked far beyond Texas. By the final weeks, the race had escalated into the first big special election of 2020.

In final unofficial results, Gates polled 58% of the vote to 42% for Democrat Eliz Markowitz.

Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren had endorsed Markowitz, and outside groups flooded the race with six-figure checks and television ads. Beto O'Rourke practically made the district a second home after ending his own presidential campaign in November, spending weekends knocking on doors in Katy's affluent neighborhoods.

It escalated a normally minor local election into a high-stakes test of Democrats' chances in Texas this November, and whether suburban voters are turning away from the party of an impeached president.

Election 2020.

While I do not join the bandwagon that Iowa and NH are imperative to have a great showing to win the Dem nomination (as juxtaposed against South Carolina and Super Tuesday), I found a couple of items interesting and confirmed my beliefs.

1) “The changing fortunes of the leading candidates underscores the volatile nature of the primary after more than a year of campaigning, as voters wrestle with which candidate can defeat President Trump. Despite the ascent of Mr. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, the poll also highlighted the combined appeal of the centrists: 55 percent of those surveyed said they preferred a standard-bearer who is “more moderate than most Democrats.” Just 38 percent said they wanted one who is “more liberal than most Democrats.”

2) Ms. Klobuchar’s supporters could play the most crucial role, though, should she fail to achieve 15 percent in most precincts. When voters were asked whom they would support if they were left with only four choices — Mr. Sanders, Mr. Buttigieg, Mr. Biden and Ms. Warren — Mr. Biden was the overwhelming favorite of Ms. Klobuchar’s backers. He received 55 percent of them in this scenario while Ms. Warren received 18 percent.

Hmmm. 55% of Amy’s supporters would jump to Biden, eh?

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/25/us/politics/democratic-iowa-poll-sanders.html

Guess that means if Amy falters, I will put Steve and Punch in the Biden camp.

Interesting point. As I read that, the Democratic candidate (regardless of identity) will be backed into a corner on all these matters. No mere handwaving about centrist immigration policy, but open borders. No middle of the road platitudes about gun control, but round up them military style assault machine rifles. Yay abortion!!

It isn't Trump that'll force an uncomfortable stance (or no stance and pretend it doesn't exist), but their own constituents. When all those crazy people are your people, you are riding the tiger.

To Keach and Paul and all the other dim bulbs on this thread, the T-Rex (no elephants) in the room is that money is fungible.

If their last name wasn't Biden (or Bush or Clinton), I'm afraid that the Impregnator of Strippers wouldn't have gotten the gig.

I'm afraid it's a case where Whataboutism doesn't really fly. Maybe it's that you need to be both greedy and powerful to take advantage of corruption, especially in sketchy countries. Greedy/powerful people are interesting, ergo you 'give a hoot'.

Personally, there's no point in legal action against either Creepy Dad or Creepy Son, and perhaps no basis. But, it's certainly worthwhile to know about if you are thinking about voting for Hunter's father.

Not to say that Trump wasn't corrupt in his own way, although involuntary 'donations' to big city Democrats has to get disheartening over time.
