‘How Anonymous, Unproven Accusations Turned Mike Tunison’s Career Into MeToo Road Kill’

“Tunison can’t be exonerated because he hasn’t been formally charged. (In fact, one common feature of the men catalogued on the Shitty Men List is that none of the alleged wrongdoing seems to have been the subject of criminal prosecution.) And since Tunison doesn’t know who made the accusations, he has no venue in which to prove his innocence. An accuser claims there’s an incriminating human-resources file on Tunison at the Washington Post. But Tunison says he was told that nothing along those lines is contained in his employment record.“

A little dose of the Burnie plan.
"Bernie Sanders released a fact-sheet Monday night explaining that he'd pay for his sweeping new government programs through new taxes and massive lawsuits, among other methods.

The effort sought to head off complaints from Republicans and some rival Democrats that his plans were economically unrealistic, especially after a head-turning CBS News interview in which the frustrated Vermont senator said he couldn't "rattle off to you every nickle and every dime" about his proposed expenditures.

He released his plan on his website just minutes after promising to do so during a CNN town hall.

But, the fact-sheet highlighted for the first time that many of Sanders' expected cost-saving measures relied heavily on conjecture. For example, Sanders' projections stated without providing details that his Green New Deal plan would create "20 million new jobs," thus ensuring $2.3 trillion in "new income tax revenue." "

20 million new jobs? Now how will that happen with the staggering tax increases the Commie somebitch is looking to stick to the economy?

https://dailycaller.com/2020/02/24/bernie-sanders-socialist-proposals-paid-for-60-minutes/
Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he didn’t have a price tag for all of his proposals during an interview with “60 Minutes.”

Cooper asked the Senator if he had any idea what the total cost of all his proposals would amount to, saying “Do you have a price tag for— for all of this?” to which Sanders responded, “We do. I mean, you know, and — and— the price tag is — it will be substantially less than letting the current system go. I think it’s about $30 trillion.”


Cooper immediately pressed him on the answer, “That’s just for Medicare for All, you’re talking about?” To which Sanders said, “Yes.”

See that number? $30 trillion
Our GDP is only 19 T.

Gotta love Commie math. That's everything everyone makes. Just about twice over.
Get your paycheck,, send it in.

Go ahead. Bitch about Trump.

Daily Quotes

Insight: “Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.” —Ronald Reagan

Observations: “When The New York Times isn’t busy demonizing our founding, what else is it doing? Well, Friday’s front page of America’s ‘Paper of Record’ was filled with the false narrative that Russia is stealing the 2020 election. Further in you’ll discover that the ‘Gray Lady,’ as the Times is often called, gave over the editorial page to the Taliban. Sirajuddin Haqqani, a Taliban leader, who has a $10 million bounty on his head and is responsible for the murder of many Americans and countless Afghanis, is being allowed by the left’s flagship newspaper to tell us what his demands are. That’s what New Yorkers read Friday morning in the city that was attacked on 9/11 because the Taliban allowed Al Qaeda to plot the attacks in Afghanistan. But according to the left the real threat to America is Donald Trump and Mike Pence.” —Gary Bauer

For the record: “The alleged ‘wage stagnation’ that Bernie and others are constantly referring to is a myth. For one thing, ‘wage stagnation’ fails to take into account the health-care benefits, pensions, vacations, family leave, and other perks now embedded in job packages — somewhere around 30 percent of an employee’s overall benefits. Once those benefits are added, Americans probably have seen about a 45-percent wage increase since 1964.” —David Harsanyi

The BIG Lie: “It’s not run by the government. Medicare allows you to go to any doctor you want for better or worse, this is not socialized medicine. This is keeping the same system intact, but getting rid of the private insurance companies, giving people another card, which allows them complete freedom.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Non compos mentis: “We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba, but, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. … When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” —Bernie Sanders

Braying jenny: “Putin’s Puppet is at it again, taking Russian help for himself. He knows he can’t win without it. And we can’t let it happen.” —Hillary Clinton

Demo-gogues: “A guy has 12 assault weapons with bump stocks, which means you can fire it faster. You can pull the trigger faster. Why in God’s name should anyone … be able to own that? It’s just wrong. … I’m the only guy that has beaten the gun manufacturers. I’m the only guy that has beaten the NRA nationally, and I did it twice, nationally. And gun manufacturers, I’m coming for you. Period.” —Joe Biden

A distinction without a difference: “I would vote for socialism over authoritarianism.” —Joe Walsh

And last… “The Nazis were big into government health care, vegetarianism, and literacy. But if a candidate praised Hitler the way Sanders praises communist dictators … well, actually much of the media would give him a pass, wouldn’t they.” —Erick Erickson

Vote for the other Biden!

“Campaigning in South Carolina, Biden bragged about one of his great accomplishments from the Barack years: “And folks, one of the things I am proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord. I am the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.” Deng died in 1997”

Lest we forget, Creepy Joe was arrested in South Africa protesting Apartheid and his helicopter had to make an emergency landing due to enemy flack over Syria (or Afghanistan?).

Piling on

‘Biden in his prime’

“Mary McGrory once described him as "a collection of good instincts and incoherent utterance, pleasant, energetic, but not in control."

In the New Yorker, Elizabeth Drew wrote that he was "knocked out by a weakness that was going to catch up with him ... intellectual barrenness." He was a "nice guy who hasn’t demonstrated depth or mental or verbal discipline," and she saw no heft in his mantra of "change.".....

“"I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do," he shouted at one questioner during a town hall-style event. "I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class." It wasn't even true. Biden ranked 80th of 100 students in his first year of law school and 76th of 85 in the last. In his first year, he failed one class and was forced to repeat it. He included in a paper he claimed was his own five pages from a law school review without attribution.

Biden also claimed he had been named "the outstanding political science student ... at the University of Delaware" and that he had graduated with three undergraduate degrees. The three degrees were actually one degree with one double major, and the "full academic scholarship" was half need-based, not merit-based.

These judgments were made by liberal writers for liberal publications, who probably liked Biden and his positions but found these hysterics a little too much.“

I kind of hate seeing My Pal Joe crash and burn. There's no great flame of intellect there, but he's probably no worse than your average congressman.

A lesson he should have picked up from his old boss is to never (or rarely) speak extemporaneously.

From a voter's standpoint, that probably just the thing you want. Reading from a teleprompter merely gives you a network anchorman as the country's CEO. Stick those guys on stage with no notes and an hour of free time, the audience shouts out a topic. Go!!

Warren could probably do it, albeit in an irritating voice. Trump can just wing it for as long as the clock runs. Bernie, taking the well-oiled role of argumentative Jewish guy from Brooklyn would manage OK. The other people not so much I think.

The big ratings marked the 44th consecutive month Fox News has been the most-watched channel in all of basic cable.

Overall, among the three major cable news networks, Fox averaged 3.53 million viewers, followed by MSNBC's 1.78 million and CNN's 1.05 million.

In the 25- to 54-year-old demographic sought by advertisers, Fox News was first in the category with 587,000 viewers in prime time, followed by MSNBC's 317,000 and CNN's 296,000.

Sean Hannity's, Tucker Carlson's and Laura Ingraham's programs were the top shows in cable news. Each of these hosts' shows hit all-time highs for a month.

Hannity finished with 4.3 million total viewers, while Carlson was second with 4.115 million and Ingraham third with 3.6 million. Ingraham's average audience marked a record for a female cable news host.

Yeah - I saw this coming from checking with DK. The left is already trying to blame Trump if anyone dies in the US from CV. It won't matter what he does or doesn't do, when it starts spreading in the US it will be all of Trump's fault. Just more TDS.
It's just like the economy. The left doesn't care if the poor suffer, they want the economy to crash before the Nov election. Just so they can be rid of Trump. Now they're praying for mass die-offs from CV just so they can blame Trump. These people are mentally ill.
Maybe if the CDC stopped wringing their hands over gun deaths and get to work on disease control, there would be some positive effects. Most of the containment issue will lie with local officials and the actions of individuals. I'm sure all the Dem candidates will bloviate about how if they were POTUS, they'd handle it perfectly.

One man’s opinion

Intelligence and the Democrats’ Internal Affairs

“In a nutshell: the ruling class’s establishment element, which has long used its intelligence and media components against conservatives, has taken to using them to fight off a challenge from its left wing.

But by so empowering this combine to help decide a contest for power within itself, the establishment is embittering its own divisions, mounting a tiger, and whetting the tiger’s appetite.

How should anyone expect the Sandersistas, were they to take control of the party, not to avenge themselves? And why should not the security-media combine, having tasted the power to make and unmake presidents, not decide at some point to wield Praetorian power on its own account?

The history of ruling classes in other places that have used intelligence to decide who will rule is replete with instances of purges and reprisals.

That is why the ruling class’s establishment—intelligence and media included—seem more worried about Bernie Sanders than Donald Trump. During the past three years or so, the establishment has learned that Trump barks but mostly does not bite. Nobody fears Trump. Trump’s presidency notwithstanding, the establishment has done very well for itself. They can count on this state of affairs continuing under another such presidency.

Sanders’ takeover of the party, never mind possibly of the federal government, is something they know they can’t survive. That is because Sanders’ movement is composed of a large cadre of serious people, many of whom are admirers of the control systems by which progressive ruling classes have empowered themselves over the peoples of Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

And let’s face it: Sanders did not choose to spend his honeymoon in the Soviet Union blissfully unaware of how the joint was run, or of the purges by which its masters had secured themselves against the party and the KGB.

The Democratic Party’s establishment—very much including the intelligence and media combine—would be the first to experience the Sandersista regime’s delights. That, and not fear of Trump, is what explains their panic.“

“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds Trump earning 50% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Sanders’ 43%. Seven percent (7%) are undecided,” says the report.
Trump earns “84% of the Republican vote and leads 49% to 39% among voters not affiliated [Independents] with either major party.”

“Sanders captures 75% of Democrats, but nearly one-in-four Democratic voters (22%) opt for Trump instead,” Rasmussen adds.

The poll also found that in a match-up between the president and the avowed socialist, Bernie earned only 60 percent black support, compared to the 88 percent Hillary Clinton got in 2016.
That is a catastrophic number for Bernie, and other polls show Trump increasing his support among black Americans.

Among “other minority voters,” Trump leads Bernie 48 percent to 44 percent and bests the 78-year-old socialist 54 percent to 39 percent with white voters.

Not true: “When I was 21 years old, I got a job as a special education teacher. I loved that job. And by the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant. The principal wished me luck and gave my job to someone else.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

And last… “I don’t know what’s a more ignorant statement — believing that socialism works or that farming is easy.” —Vice President Mike Pence

fwiw, famous reddit group the_donald, which has been disconnected from overall reddit rankings and been quarantined for some while, is having it's moderators removed and replaced with people more to the liking of the highly liberal mothership.

These sorts of things matter more than you might think, plus it's just in time for the lead up for the election. Probably planned some time ago.

With control over it, there's probably some clever things a Blue Mobster could do.

There's real power in having social media near-monopolies that are politically weaponized. It'll be interesting to keep an eye on twitter.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/group-threatens-lawsuits-over-suspiciously-high-voter-registration-rates-in-swing-states
" Voters in Florida, Michigan and Colorado are threatening to sue their states after an independent organization discovered that each has counties with unusually high voter registration rates -- in some cases, they found more registered voters than actual people eligible to vote."

"“All three states have multiple counties where voter registration rates exceed 90 percent, in some cases they exceed 100 percent. In the last election in 2018, the nationwide registration rate according to the U.S. Census Bureau was 66.9 percent. That disparity is a clear sign these states aren’t maintaining accurate voter rolls,” "

“The SQ [Surete du Quebec] is working on a plan to dismantle the barricades,” Legault told reporters, according to CBC. But he said The SQ — Quebec Provincial Police — haven’t made much progress because the Mohawks at the First Nations Reserve of Kahnawake have access to weapons, including AK-47s, Montreal’s City News reported Wednesday."

TDS is more dangerous and contagious than the flu bug.
The New York Times was widely mocked on Thursday over an op-ed column that criticized the White House response to the coronavirus outbreak by declaring that the ailment should be referred to as "Trumpvirus."

The piece by columnist Gail Collins was headlined, “Let's Call It Trumpvirus,” and declared that “if you’re feeling awful, you know who to blame.”

Democrats in the House blocked voting on the resolution on Thursday afternoon.

"The resolution specifically condemned “the use of firing squads, imprisonment, torture, and acts of repudiation to suppress dissent in totalitarian Cuba, as well as the forced communist indoctrination policies carried out by the Castro dictatorship in Cuba,” in addition to Sanders’ support for the regime."

Daily Quotes and Meditations....spoken by some of which who are on Medications.

Upright: “Conservatives continue to use the word ‘democracy’ when discussing American politics. They need to reclaim the term ‘republic’ and continue to discuss unalienable rights, namely, property rights. The Constitution’s purpose is to protect rights, not popular sovereignty.” —Washington Examiner’s Will Ricciardella

Observations: “Thought experiment: If 100 years ago, universal health care was guaranteed in this country — the best health care at the time magically available for all — but the trade off was medical innovation was slowed by 50%, how many people would that kill? If you slow medical innovation, historical data says you’ll kill a lot of people, but the advantage is you’ll never know you did that.” —The Babylon Bee’s Frank J. Fleming

Non sequitur: “We all treasure our freedom of speech, but nobody here has the freedom to yell ‘Fire’ in this crowded space. It is the same way with religious liberty. We respect, and I will fiercely defend, religious liberty. But not past the point where it is being invoked as an excuse to harm other people through this kind of discrimination.” —Pete Buttigieg, whose idea of “religious discrimination” means fighting against leftist coercion

Nope: “You know, we have a place called Georgetown, Delaware, that was founded in the 1600s.” —Joe Biden (Georgetown, Delaware, was founded in 1791.)

Literally or figuratively? “Sometimes I wake up and I think it’s 1920 and not 2020.” —Joe Biden

Dezinformatsiya: “I’ve covered Cuba for years and there’s a lot of great things to say about their social services, their education, their health system.” —MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell

Village idiot: “We currently have a president who embarrasses this great nation every single day with his incompetence, his unabashed ignorance, his lack of curiosity. Wouldn’t it be so refreshing to have a woman of Sen. Warren’s brilliance replacing him?” —singer-songwriter John Legend

Non compos mentis: “Purging public servants disloyal to a regime is banana-republic stuff. Our federal employees work for the American people, not the president.” —Hillary Clinton

And last… “I’ve seen Democrats be tougher on Trump for his coronavirus response than they’ve been on China, whose communist government censored and hid the outbreak, leading to its unnecessary spread around the world.” —Katie Pavlich

Bessee Blunt Dude....(quite the honor I must say).

They are more terrified of Bernie losing to Trump than his Marxist yearnings and policies. Just the terrifying idea of losing to Trump makes them all sweat bullets. Nervous Nellies. And only the JV Team on the bench, the A Team is on the injured reserved. Messed up bad.
It was Biden’s turn and now they are stuck with Slim Pickens. Curse you, gaff maestro! You were the one! WTF Happened?, a Hillary book.

Imagine going over the ballot in the comfort of your home and getting ready to pick the candidate you like and then all of a sudden a 9 ft Fat Trump appears behind you and you see nothing but that Orange Man Bad’s face and “that look”. Suddenly your mind races to anyone who has a chance to beat Trump. Anyone! I don’t care who they are!!! ANYONE!!

That’s a bad place to be. Winning is so much better, funner, and the burden is light. But a spring in one’s step. Our friends on the Left can only dream. They still haven’t gone through the 7 stages of grieve yet. Holy Guano, how long does this take??? No known cure for TDS. Maybe someday science may find a cure......

They only things they are going is making them look like a bunch of kids trying trying to catch the greased pig in the mud for the adults’ entertainment when the ro-dee-o comes to town. Have you see the share price of ACME Rents lately???

Trump ain’t even warmed up. Chained Heat unleashed. He is going to schlong them. :)

Bill Tozer

PS: And they are doing quite the excellent job of schlonging themselves. Their solutions are worse than their problems, per normal. TDS can and does work in our favor. :)

Yes, it is an unwise man who takes his armor off before the battle begins. It’s like we won our division and just waiting to see who we will meet in the championship game. We are resting up as the wildcard team is getting bruised and battered going through the process week after week. No rest for the wicked. No home field advantage, no week of rest for the to heal up. We are waiting, waiting. :).

It looks like the 3 dictator amigos are having a falling out of the killing kind -

At least 29 Turkish soldiers have been killed in an air strike by Syrian "regime forces" in north-western Syria, a senior Turkish official has said.

More were hurt in Idlib province, said Rahmi Dogan, the governor of Turkey's Hatay province. Other reports put the death toll higher.

Turkey is now retaliating against Syrian troops government targets.
Syrian forces supported by Russia are trying to retake Idlib from rebels who are backed by Turkish soldiers.

The Syrian authorities have so far made no public comments on the latest escalation in Idlib, the last Syrian province to remain in opposition hands.

The Turkish military began hitting back at the Syrian targets after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held an urgent top-level security meeting in Ankara.

The Turkish leader wants the Syrian government forces to pull back from positions where Turkey has set up military observation posts and had earlier threatened to attack them if they did not halt their advance.

But Syria's government and Russia have rejected his demand to pull back to ceasefire lines agreed in 2018. Russia has also accused Turkey of violating the 2018 ceasefire by backing rebels with artillery fire.

"All known" Syrian government targets were under fire by Turkish air and land support units, Turkey's communications director Fahrettin Altun was quoted by state news agency Anadolu as saying. Turkey had decided to "respond in kind" to the attack, Mr Altun said.

President Erdogan has threatened to mount a major military operation against President Assad's forces if they don't pull back from frontline positions near Turkish troops in Idlib within the next two days.

Behind this conflict looms the potential of an even bigger confrontation. Turkey and Russia have backed different sides in Syria, but have come together to broker battlefield deals in the past few years.

That pragmatic rapprochement is now in doubt. Russian airpower has provided vital support for Syrian forces - if it is now being directed at Turkish military positions, that creates a huge new element of risk.

Yo odriew Odlid, check these apples out. A special shout to Devin Nunes, a simple Hispanic farmer who figured put the pieces together.

MUELLER’S TEAM TO BE CHARGED WITH CRIMES?

“Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Just the News that his team has been scouring recent documents released by the FBI, including witness reports known as 302s, and found glaring evidence that contradicts claims the Mueller team made to courts and Congress.”

“We’re now going through these 302s, and we’re going to be making criminal referrals on the Mueller dossier team, the people that put this Mueller report together,” Nunes said during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast set to air on Tuesday.”

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/02/muellers-team-to-be-charged-with-crimes.php

“Make sure your sins will find you out,” momma always said. Ah, they did nothing with Grassley’s criminal referral of Dr. Blasen- Ford either. The R’s had evidence of perjury, not brought up in the Kavanaugh's hearing. The R’s played nice. She had quite the history not revealed when the R’s decided not to impugn her character, just her story’s gapping honking gaps. I know, you believed her. I believe something happened to her, but where and when nobody knows. They could never put Dr. Ford (she added Blasen before ‘Ford’ only before the hearings) and Brett together anywhere, any time.

Bill Tozer

Well, well, well. Lookie here, you bunch of odlids, you.

“If you drop in on any self-respecting college political science department—or a mainstream media newsroom, which thinks all the same things—it is axiomatic that the problem with the polarization of American politics today owes entirely to the radicalism of the Republican Party that began in the 1980s. You will see fancy charts and graphs supposedly “proving” this proposition empirically. I sit through a lot of academic seminars devoted to this proposition, which I usually blow up with a single unwelcome question: “Funny how Republicans supposedly became more ‘extreme’ just when Republicans started to win more elections. What does that say about American voters?” (What that question really means is, “What does that say about political scientists?” But I need to get out alive from these things. . .)

“So it is with some satisfaction that I caught up with an article in, of all places, the New York Times, that offers empirical evidence for something obvious to all conservatives, namely, that it is the the Democrats who have become increasingly extreme. This article tries to measure how the parties have moved ideologically over the last 20 years, and while the article tries very hard to slime Republicans for being well to the right of most European conservatives parties (good, I say), the chart their data produced shows the Democratic Party has lurched hard to the left during this period, while the Republican Party is pretty stable:”

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/02/the-democrats-bernie-dilemma-he-exposes-their-true-character.php

And.....I reject the preposterous proposition preferred by the political scientists that Bernie is just a natural populous reaction to the extreme right.

A Hollywood has been (was she ever?) trying to hurt small business and American workers in her rabid TDS -

Actress Patricia Arquette is urging people to participate in a one-day economic shutdown that is designed to inflict damage on the U.S. economy and hurt President Donald Trump.

Arquette posted a message to Instagram on Thursday promoting the March 2 event, telling her followers that they should refrain from making any purchases — presumably, including food and medication — for a 24-hour period as part of the #resist movement against the Trump administration.

Here is a goody for "no voter fraud" Emery.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/02/27/lawsuit-1-6k-dead-people-registered-to-vote-in-pittsburgh-pennsylvania/
"the lawsuit claims there are close t0 7,500 voter registrations that have been flagged as duplicates but that remain on the voter rolls. In one case, the lawsuit claims, an individual registered to vote up to seven times in one day while out of state.

Other individuals, the lawsuit claims, have registered to vote three to four times. Likewise, the lawsuit alleges that there are 1,523 registered voters who claim to be 100-years-old and over — nearly 50 of which have listed the 1800s as their birth years."

“One registrant is stated as being born in ‘June 1800,’ the same year Thomas Jefferson won eight of Pennsylvania’s 15 Electoral College votes against President John Adams,” the lawsuit claims.

The lawsuit claims there are 1,178 registered voters who are missing dates of births in Allegheny County, about 193 registered voters who are missing dates of registration, and 35 registered voters with corrupted or out-of-state addresses.

Officials with the Public Interest Legal Foundation are looking to ensure that Allegheny County makes reasonable efforts to maintain their voter rolls, as required by the National Voter Registration Act of 1993."

Uh oh. No credit card bought $8 soup at Three Forks for you today! Although quite a few of them could stand to miss a meal.

That gives me a good idea. The TDS folks could get coronavirus samples and infect themselves and their children. A flu epidemic isn't good for the President and there's that teensy chance that their sacrifice could help the Democrats carry the day.

Maybe a Day Without the Internet. Team Blue could stay at home and read a book. It not only would do them some good but it would give everyone a rest for the crazy ahead. I would suggest a copy of 'Trump. That Evil Bastard', available at Amazon.
