re DonB 555pm - Bloomberg saved countless black lives with his 'stop & frisk' program. But the black community's understanding of their gain was corrupted by the remainder of the clown car. Then Bloomberg responded by trying to kiss their ass, the only part of the black community's corpus that Shortround was able to reach. Ye reap what ye have sown.

Sanders is sure showing his true colors.
Look who he pats on the back.
"Sanders’s 2020 presidential campaign website touts an endorsement from the radical group, Dream Defenders, and the group’s co-director, Phillip Agnew, is a top Sanders surrogate.
The group’s political arm, Dream Defenders PAC, has been holding twice-weekly phone banking events in support of Sanders.

Dream Defenders aims to abolish the use of prisons, according to the group’s website and public statements.

“Police and prisons have no place in ‘justice.’ Police and prisons aren’t just racist but they work to enforce the separations of rich and poor,” Dream Defenders’s website states."

re: GeorgeR@6:17PM.

While Bloomberg is (hopefully) learning the Second Lesson of Trump, that there's no point in apologizing in the current cultural climate, I'm mostly just struck by how f'ing rude people can be in a public venue. It's not a bar or fight club web forum, you've got a guy coming in to give a speech with permission of the organization. You don't have to clap, just let him do his thing.

A sign of the times I guess. Everyone is looking for a photo op, candidates and ill-mannered people alike.

"The group filed IRS charitable "990" documents in 2013 and 2014 saying it has less than $50,000 in receipts for each year; there are no IRS filings for the years after 2014."

A little truth from a swamp creature -

When Donald Trump took office, there was a sense among career bureaucrats that the new president would be outmatched by the vast United States government. Seasoned officials would serve as “the adults” in the room, deflecting the new president’s worst ideas, waiting out his impulses, and protecting the State and Justice Departments from lasting harm. They were smarter than Trump was, and they would outlast him. Three years later, those “adults” are gone, and, as one former high-ranking government lawyer says, those who still think they can contain the president are “fooling themselves”—Trump is “light-years ahead of them.”

A MOMENT OF CLARITY FOR EMILY FLAKE: “My ability to provide wry commentary about my own cervix is an asset useful only in a pre-collapsed society…. Once the shit hits the fan, I’ll need somewhere to run… Maybe these bad feelings are signals that it’s time to rethink my approach to other people, and maybe even to life itself, to become more open, more generous, more in tune with nature and less concerned with being a good tube of toothpaste and then making fun of myself for it….”

Plus, from the comments:“I would personally rather be with the people who work at any oil refinery in this country rather than, say, the entire faculty of Harvard University in the event of societal collapse. The refinery people will have the lights and heat on, water to drink, and food on the table while the Harvard people are forming a committee to debate personal pronoun usage.”

Groundbreaking Study Reveals Second Type Of Schizophrenia

Bill Tozer

Daily Quotes

Insight: “I urge you to beware the temptation … to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of any evil empire.” —Ronald Reagan

Upright: “Americans are in a sour mood about foreign interventions, and after 18 years in Afghanistan the desire to come home is understandable. But public frustration shouldn’t ignore the major U.S. accomplishments. Our forces have denied terrorists a safe haven and protected the homeland from another large-scale attack. We have killed the al Qaeda leadership, including Osama bin Laden. We have assisted a Kabul government that, while far from perfect, is free and democratic. We have brought basic education to millions of young Afghans who never had it. And we have trained and equipped Afghan security forces to defend themselves. No one should diminish the sacrifices that Americans have made with their lives and long deployments by dismissing these achievements.” —The Wall Street Journal

Political futures: “The Democrats and the United States need a Sanders candidacy, so the existing Democratic Party can be completely defeated and humiliated and most of its most obnoxious officeholders can be flung out of public life head-first; and so the country can administer to itself the emetic necessary to disgorge this socialist idiocy.” —Conrad Black

Friendly fire: “People want results. They’re not looking for revolution; they want results. They want a return to decency. They want to be able to get things done. And I have a record that is far superior on those two issues than Bernie’s.” —Joe Biden

For the record: “73-year-old Donald Trump, the oldest man ever elected president for the first time, is now the youngest man left in the presidential race. (Even his primary challenger Bill Weld is 74.)” —The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles

Belly laugh: “Future CNN headline: ‘As The Youngest Male Candidate In The Field, Does Donald Trump Have The Experience To Be President?’” —Matt Walsh

And last… “With Pete Buttigieg dropping out of the race, Donald Trump is now the youngest man running for president in 2020. I thought Democrats were supposed to be the party of the youth and the future? Yet a 73-year-old man is still running circles around all of them.” —TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk

So was this a mini-stroke or an aide messing with the talking points for the day??

In a surprise moment at the end of his Dallas rally on the eve of Super Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden called former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke up to the stage -- and vowed to put O'Rourke, who has said the government should seize assault rifles from Americans, in charge of gun-control efforts.

LOL Emery!! Your worried about a poll?
How bout VOTE BUYING??
https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/02/sanders-biden-bloomberg-superdelegates/
"Leading Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg have paid a combined $466,000 to superdelegates who are likely to support their benefactors in the event of a contested convention, Federal Election Commission records show."

Don Bessee

The money shot from the above -

Biden, taking the microphone after O'Rourke spoke, then announced, "I want to make something clear -- I'm gonna guarantee you, this is not the last you're seeing of this guy -- you're gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you're gonna be the one who leads this effort. I'm counting on you, I'm counting on you, we need you badly."

O'Rourke has previously said he would like to seize all Americans' AR-15 assault rifles, promising: "Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," at a Democratic primary debate last year, shortly before his campaign collapsed.

Washington (AFP) - The United States on Monday cut by nearly half the number of Chinese nationals allowed to work for Beijing's state-run media in the US, vowing reciprocity after a crackdown in China.
The move comes two weeks after China expelled three Wall Street Journal reporters, although the US said its decision was based on leveling numbers between the countries rather than retaliating over content.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said China had "imposed increasingly harsh surveillance, harassment and intimidation against American and other foreign journalists operating in China."

"We urge the Chinese government to immediately uphold its international commitments to respect freedom of expression, including for members of the press," Pompeo said in a statement.

A State Department official said that five media outlets, which last month were reclassified by the United States as foreign missions, would be allowed to employ a maximum 100 Chinese nationals as of March 13, down from around 160 now.

The United States is not explicitly expelling the other 60 staff members, who in theory can seek other employment, although most are expected to be obliged to leave the country.

re: Joe Biden.

I'm not totally against the concept, but I'd say that Joe Biden's facelift went a bit overboard. He was always a good looking guy, which might explain his Dunning-Kruger in thinking he can still nuzzle up to younger women, but he looks as tight as a drum anymore...barely recognizable. You end up stretching the personality out of a face.

It's a perfect Trumpian insult to apply since, once you think about it, every time you see Biden speak it's all you're going to notice from now on.

Worry and character lines soften and the face grows placid and the expression vacant.

Quotes:

Insight: “I have no respect for the passion of equality, which seems to me merely idealizing envy — I don’t disparage envy, but I don’t accept it as legitimately my master.” —Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. (1841-1935)

Re: The Left: “It was a Democratic president who told Americans, during World War II no less, that ‘we have nothing to fear but fear itself.’ He is a liberal idol, in part for saying that. That is more or less exactly what Trump has been saying. Yet he’s an ‘existential threat’ to our country.” —columnist Dennis Prager

Observations: “Nike almost seems to be taking a page from the playbook of their foreign partners, the Chinese Communist Party. The company launched an all-out war against religious liberty in places like Tennessee, where the brand argued that letting adoption groups live by their beliefs was somehow bad for business. If it were up to the shoe giant, they’d kick men and women of faith right out of the public square. When it comes right down to it, Nike has a lot more in common with China’s dictatorial regime than anyone cared to admit.” —FRC President Tony Perkins

For the record: “[Hillary Clinton’s answers in deposition were] either incomplete, unhelpful or cursory at best. Simply put her responses left many more questions than answers.” —U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth ordering Clinton to be deposed again over her private email server

Friendly fire: “That was my authentic opinion then. It’s my authentic opinion now.” —Hillary Clinton reaffirming her “baloney” assessment of the Bernie Sanders campaign

Tone-deaf: “Let’s follow the rules. We had rules last time. We have rules this time. Everybody knew when they got into it.” —Hillary Clinton, whom the DNC colluded with in 2016

D'oh! “We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men and women created by — go — you know — you know, the thing.” —Joe Biden

Hot air: “The answer is that I spend an awful lot of time flying around the country, flying around the world working on climate change. We have closed an awful lot of coal-fired power plants, and worked to try and train coal miners to get other jobs.” —Michael Bloomberg after being confronted about his private-jet hypocrisy

The secretary of state's website also was offline sporadically throughout the day. California is among 14 states holding presidential primary contests on Super Tuesday, and voters in the nation's most populous state also are weighing in on congressional races, legislative seats and a statewide school bond.
In Los Angeles County, which has more than a quarter of the state's 20 million registered voters and a new $300 million voting system, electronic pollbooks were operating slowly because so many voters were trying to use them at the same time, said Mike Sanchez, spokesman for the county Registrar-Recorder.

Delays were up to two hours in some locations.
Technicians have added more devices in some polling places to speed up lines, Sanchez said. There had been no indication of security breaches with the pollbooks, which are hooked up to the state's voter database, he said.

The county's new elections system is undergoing a trial by fire after the state certified it for use despite serious technical and security defects identified in testing. That includes the ability of an attacker to bypass seals, locks and sensors and boot from a USB port, which could allow election data to be modified. Testers also found the machines susceptible to paper jams at five times the acceptable rate.

Correction. Mea Culpa and haste bandanas. I throw myself at your mercy.

Gabbard got one percent in Maine! She won her delegate in American Samoa, finishing second. She did much better than Tom Steyer and four a heck of a lot cheap. Tulsi looks to get 1.8 percent in the Cherokee Nation! You go girl!
——
Update: “SANDERS IS LOOKING GOOD IN UTAH: He’s out to a big lead. I don’t see anyone catching.

Bloomberg is in second place. Biden is a very distant third, with only 12 percent of the vote. Utah seems to be about a month behind the times as far as this race is concerned.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) confused his wife, former second lady Dr. Jill Biden, for his sister, Valerie, in his Super Tuesday speech in Los Angeles, California. The incident is one of several gaffes that the former vice president has made in recent weeks.

“It’s a good night and it seems to be getting even better,” Biden, 77, began in his remarks to a raucous crowd of supporters. “They don’t call it Super Tuesday for nothing.”

Biden then grabbed his wife’s hand and introduced her as his sister, saying “this is my little sister Valerie and I’m Jill’s husband.”

Upon reflection......Chris Matthews (again).

Seems like a simple case of changing of the guard. The Jacobins simply took down Maximilien François Marie Isidore de Robespierre, whose cause of death was execution by guillotine. Chris Matthews is person non-grata. But he was soooo liberal and spent his life fighting for you! Ingrates.

Exit question. Will the party of AOC (not the way liberal Democrats) be the new voice of the media?

Adios Charlie Rose, Chris Matthews, and that ‘Prairie Home Companion guy. Changing of the guard. The guillotine awaits.

Twitter suspending accounts of who liberal liberal journalists who dare to actually quote an exact and accurate Joe Biden bubbling gaffe. The battle is on! Take it to the streets!

Interesting how many bonds and taxes are going down to defeat, Penn valley school looks like a loss. Saw a number of other similar county issues failed.

With 55 percent of the precincts reporting state prop 13 is going down 58% to 42% channel 40 just reported and Doug LaMalfa was called the winner. Doug was in fine spirits at the red light ball this last Saturday at the Alta Sierra Country Clubs Timbers dining room.

From the Union just now -

Higgins’ parcel tax must receive 66.7% of the vote. Early results Tuesday showed 1,484 “yes” votes and 1,086 “no” votes, or 57.74% to 42.26%. The district came within 29 votes in 2013, with 65% of citizens voting “yes.” In 2015, a $141-per-parcel tax failed with 59% “yes” votes.

Penn Valley’s bond, meanwhile, would pass with a 55% yes vote. But early results showed 1,926 “no” votes to 1,071 “yes” votes, with 64.26% of the voters turning the measure down.

The chi coms are not getting away with it any more -


LONDON (Reuters) - China’s Huawei Technologies, which for years has denied violating American trade sanctions on Iran, produced internal company records in 2010 that show it was directly involved in sending prohibited U.S. computer equipment to Iran’s largest mobile-phone operator.
Two Huawei packing lists, dated December 2010, included computer equipment made by Hewlett-Packard Co and destined for the Iranian carrier, internal Huawei documents reviewed by Reuters show.
Another Huawei document, dated two months later, stated: “Currently the equipment is delivered to Tehran, and waiting for the custom clearance.”

The packing lists and other internal documents, reported here for the first time, provide the strongest documentary evidence to date of Huawei’s involvement in alleged trade sanctions violations. They could bolster Washington’s multifaceted campaign to check the power of Huawei, the world's leading telecommunications-equipment maker.

The United States is trying to persuade allies to avoid using Huawei equipment in their next-generation mobile telecommunications systems, known as 5G. Separately, U.S. authorities are battling Huawei on a legal front.

The newly obtained documents involve a multi-million dollar telecommunications project in Iran that figures prominently in an ongoing criminal case Washington has brought against the Chinese company and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou. The daughter of Huawei’s founder, Meng has been fighting extradition from Canada to the United States since her arrest in Vancouver in December 2018. Huawei and Meng have denied the charges, which involve bank fraud, wire fraud and other allegations.

The documents, which aren’t cited in the criminal case, provide new details about Huawei’s role in providing an Iranian telecom carrier with numerous computer servers, switches and other equipment made by HP, as well as software made by other American companies at the time, including Microsoft Corp, Symantec Corp and Novell Inc.

A U.S. indictment alleges that Huawei and Meng participated in a fraudulent scheme to obtain prohibited U.S. goods and technology for Huawei’s Iran-based business, and move money out of Iran by deceiving Western banks. The indictment accuses Huawei and Meng of surreptitiously using an “unofficial subsidiary” in Iran called Skycom Tech Co Ltd to obtain the prohibited goods.

Nevada County takeaways...

1. More Republicans voted in the Republican presidential primary than democrats voted in theirs. More R enthusiasm in Nevada County?
2. Heidi Hall headed to a run off and a real campaign against Wilder though Hall had 49.6% will likely win in November.
3. Prop 13 went down badly.
4. LaMalfa and McClintock wiped the floor with their challengers.
5. Both Dahle's were once again successful.

Like Ice Cube, I have to say it was a good day.

The biggest loser tonight, by far, is Mini Mike Bloomberg. His “political” consultants took him for a ride. $700 million washed down the drain, and he got nothing for it but the nickname Mini Mike, and the complete destruction of his reputation. Way to go Mike!

How does 'President' Biden sound now? Of course he has that extensive criminal record in South Africa to cover up, but in some communities it gives him street cred. Now - how does Biden move forward with the 'sane and sensible and decent' act while still hoping to attract the Bernie Bros next Nov? It is nice to see that the woke Demos are sticking with an elderly wealthy white male to lead them. I'm sure he'll have several opportunities to nominate females to lots of important roles like senator and all. They will have to line up and have Joe smell their hair.
Stay tuned!

IIRC in '18, Denney won against LaMalfa in Nevada County, 55/45, even as she was plastered district wide.

In the partial results so far, even just in County, she's far behind. 50/43.

So... Nevada County is now "red" (meaning blue) and Punchy will be moving to some other "progressive" stronghold?

Before the race, Bloomberg had a net worth of 0.06 trillion dollars.

Now, his net worth is 0.06 trillion dollars.

His couch has had his lost pocket change removed and spent.

Gregory: "Punchy will be moving to some other "progressive" stronghold?"

Maybe. But he'll call it 'Progressive-Libertarian' or something.

It's certainly a more distinguished name than 'free shit for unaccomplished old guys'.

I was just thinking about Bloomberg, who'll die soon enough, and his fortune. I haven't yet figured out where the money came from but no doubt it was built from producing useful goods of some sort.

A quick look at his philanthropic efforts, which are probably tax dodges, mostly shows donations against things. Anti-coal, anti-snack, anti-tobacco, anti-fishing. Perhaps there's a word similar to nihilism that implies building an anti-anything philosophy. I've coined 'Emerianism' for anti-Trump, but that's a small part of a bigger space.

$60,000,000,000! A buncha money. A person could try to save Western Civilization or supercharge the search for extrasolar planets. I guess that small people have small plans.

So you can buy the bus.
I read that story. They sure seem to be hyping a losing business proposition.

Daily quotes

For the record: “As Trump’s job approval rating has improved, so has the image of the Republican Party. Now, 51% of Americans view the Republican Party favorably, up from 43% in September. It is the first time GOP favorability has exceeded 50% since 2005.” —Gallup

Nailed it: “If only [Michael] Bloomberg had hired Russians to buy $100,000 in barely literate Facebook ads, instead of spending $700 MILLION, he’d be president now. That’s what the media have told us for 3+ years.” —The Federalist’s Sean Davis

Belly laugh of the week: “Wow. I’m feeling pretty good… Despite very minimal campaigning on my part, I have managed to win only 12 fewer delegates than Bloomberg.” —The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh

Observations: “The momentum for Donald Trump might be the most underreported aspect of Super Tuesday.” —The Patriot Post’s Nate Jackson

Probably when hell freezes over: “I really don’t like the dementia jokes about Biden, because it’s sad. But … honestly? This isn’t a joke anymore. When do people in the media start having a serious conversation about Biden’s mental state?” —"Relatable" host Allie Beth Stuckey

Village idiot: “Yes, Mr. Trump, let’s make America great again. But first, get one thing straight: America was great — before you were elected. … He has demolished our standing in the world with his laughable boasts and breathtaking ignorance. He has put the security of this country, and our planet, in a precarious position by abandoning the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal. He’s a one-man weapon of mass destruction … so reckless that he almost started a war. … Trump can never live up to Obama’s legacy, so he’s trying to erase it. He inherited a growing economy and now claims credit for it, saying it’s the best in history … but that’s another lie.” —actress and singer Barbra Streisand

Braying jackass: “I want to talk to my Republicans. Stay the hell out of our race! Stay the hell out of our race! I get sick and tired of Republicans telling me and my colleagues about our process. … So, [RNC chairwoman] Ronna [McDaniel], go to hell!” —former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile

Alpha jackass: “Democratic Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca faced conservative criticism Tuesday after sharing a meme on Twitter suggesting she stands in ‘solidarity’ with the idea of spreading coronavirus at President Trump’s campaign rallies.” —Fox News

And last… “Becoming President just wasn’t in Elizabeth Warren’s DNA.” —"Vs Media Podcast" host Stephen Miller
