Qhat is going on with Heidi Hall and driving?

Robert Cross

Yes yes, be there and protest attempts to protect citizens from the virus. after all money is more important than lives and the virus is hoax anyway. Be sure to not wear mask when you go and carry a confederate flag if you have one. The stars and bars is the new swastika so proudly display it.


Draconian fines? Well, then no one will break the law!

There was a Star Trek NG script that had Wesley Crusher (Will Wheaton) held for the majority of the episode for the capital crime of not keeping off the wrong grass in a park. Too bad for the series, they had a chance for summary execution right then and there (the beat cops had the injections at the ready) but blew it.

I'm not a Will Wheaton fan... I remember a quiz show he was on (a kiddie wildlife thing after STNG that my kid watched) and he had all the knowledge and intelligence of a bag of hammers. But he could pretend he could be Lt. Wesley Crusher, boy wonder, on TV. And give Nasty Woman Ashley Judd her first on screen kiss.

But I digressed...


Disgusting, outrageous escalating power grab...
Supervisor Heidi Hall has placed an Urgency Ordinance on the Tuesday, July 28 Board agenda. This measure, if passed, would impose a fine on for-profit and not-for-profit businesses for failure to comply with County Health orders, which tend to parallel those of the Governor. Fines start at $1,000 daily and rise to $5,000, then $10,000 daily. In addition, fines on individuals could be assessed up to $500 daily for simply not wearing a mask in public, even while social distancing.

Even his donors are clamoring for him to come out of the basement -

Actress Kristin Chenoweth is being roasted online as viral video shows her singing “Don’t Be Hidin’ Out! Bring Joe Biden Out” at a Sunday night fundraiser for the presumptive 2020 Democrat presidential nominee.

Chenoweth’s lyrics play into a very popular social media meme that the former vice president appears to be in “hiding” while running for president. Even left-wing celebrities have heckled Biden for “hiding.”

In March, actor and Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) backer Rob Delaney said Biden has been in hiding “for very obvious reasons,” adding that President Trump will “waltz” to a second term if pitted against the former vice president in the general election.

Earlier this month, Joe Biden said that he has taken a cognitive test used to detect mental issues. However, the former vice president’s campaign didn’t offer any details about the test or confirm if it will release the results. On Monday, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel predicted that the Democrat convention next month will be about how to “hide Joe Biden.”

“I think the Democrats’ convention should be called ‘The Invisible Man Sequel’ because their convention will be about how do we hide Joe Biden and create this disappearing act for our candidate, so the voters don’t get to see him,” McDaniel said.

Looks like the AG is going to tear the socialist mayors a new one -

In his first-ever appearance before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Attorney General Bill Barr will condemn the "grave abuses" in the "bogus Russiagate scandal," while also highlighting Black-on-Black violence and defending law enforcement officers in no uncertain terms, according to a transcript of his prepared remarks obtained by Fox News on Monday night.

Barr's unusually aggressive posture will be matched by a full-throated defense from GOP lawmakers on the panel, including ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Fox News is told.

"Ever since I made it clear that I was going to do everything I could to get to the bottom of the grave abuses involved in the bogus Russiagate scandal, many of the Democrats on this committee have attempted to discredit me by conjuring up a narrative that I am simply the president’s factotum who disposes of criminal cases according to his instructions," Barr is expected to say at the outset of his remarks. "Judging from the letter inviting me to this hearing, that appears to be your agenda today."

Barr will go on to deny that Trump has improperly interfered with any of his decisions, before pointing to statistics showing progress on racial-justice issues, according to his prepared remarks.

"Police forces today are far more diverse than ever before; there are both more Black police chiefs and more Black officers in the ranks," Barr is expected to say. "Although the death of George Floyd – an unarmed Black man – at the hands of the police was a shocking event, the fact is that such events are fortunately quite rare. According to statistics compiled by the Washington Post, the number of unarmed Black men killed by police so far this year is eight. The number of unarmed White men killed by police over the same time period is 11. Some unarmed suspects, moreover, were physically attacking officers or threatening others at the time they were shot. And, the overall number of police shootings has been decreasing."

President Trump sends more federal forces to Portland as violence escalates in US citiesVideo
At the same time, the attorney general is expected to say, Black Americans too often kill each other. "The threat to Black lives posed by crime on the streets is massively greater than any threat posed by police misconduct," Barr's remarks read. "The leading cause of death for young Black males is homicide. Every year approximately 7,500 Black Americans are victims of homicide, and the vast majority of them – around 90 percent – are killed by other Blacks, mainly by gunfire. Each of those lives matter."

Dan Miller reported this morning that Measure 37 has been continued because it was poorly written and confusing. Now there should be more time for people to lobby the Supes to stand strong on the draconian fines part of the contemplated ordinance. But someone should also point out that Newsom has no constitutional power to issue such lockdown diktats in the first place nor withhold state funds allocated to the county. Inform the people of the C19 risks, and then let them decide how and where to expose themselves.

Daily Quotes and two memes go here today, although the quotes can go under Letters or Commies try again.

Upright: “I’m not kneeling for the flag and screw anybody who have [sic] a problem with that. My grandmother was a[n] immigrant from the Caribbean and she worked her ass off to bring 20 people over the right way. She had no money and educated herself to be a nurse. She living good now.” —Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt

For the record: “Y'all so blessed Janet Reno is no longer the captain. She would’ve firebombed Portland by now and salted the earth for good measure.” —Becket Adams

Observations: “The left has done to this country everything that they feared and dreaded Donald Trump would do when he was elected.” —Brandon Straka, founder of the WalkAway movement

Re: The Left: “My suggestion to the American people is start listening to the Democrats. … They talk about defunding the police. They talk about making excuses for violent mobs. Let’s take them at their word. They want to destroy the things that bring us together — our common bonds, our founding, our love of country.” —Rep. Dan Crenshaw

Self-solver: “It used to be in the old days, before this, you’d write a letter, and you’d say, ‘This letter is really bad.’ You’d put it in your desk, and you go back tomorrow, and you say, ‘Oh, I’m glad I didn’t send it.’ Right? But we don’t do that with Twitter. We put it out instantaneously. We feel great, and then you start getting phone calls, ‘Did you really say this?’” —Trump on his Twitter regrets (Memo to Mr. President: Find a pen, a piece of paper, and a desk drawer, and think about it tomorrow!)

Friendly fire I: “It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of s—t in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still s—t.‘” —ex-Bernie Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner on voting for Joe Biden

Friendly fire II: “How does breaking windows at a courthouse, setting fire to a federal building, firing guns in crowds, and committing acts of vandalism forward any cause? Actually, don’t bother because there is no good answer. It is self-destructive to any cause you promote.” —Joe Scarborough

Alpha jackass: “[Trump’s] an arsonist, not a fireman. He wants to stir violent protests to fuel his 'law and order’ campaign ads.” —David Axelrod

Non compos mentis: “The hard truth is women — and particularly women of color — have never had a fair shot to get ahead in this country. That’s why today, I’m releasing my plan to make sure women can fully participate in our economy and country.” —Joe Biden, mansplaining why women need a 77-year-old white man to help them

The BIG Lie: “‘Black-on-Black Crime’ Is a Dangerous Myth.” —Teen Vogue op-ed title

And last… “George Floyd was murdered 63 days ago. Since then, 63,000 black pre-born babies have been murdered by Planned Parenthood and abortionists in America. And Black Lives Matter supports that.” —Samuel Sey



Here you go Emery and Bobby,, Nadler says the riots are a myth.

Cain might have gotten the virus at a bloody riot... there's just no way to pinpoint who coughed and where. And he might have been masked and properly socially distanced, as neither a bandana or a surgical mask or an N95 respirator is fine enough to screen out the virus.

Just wondering.

The demon sperm lady that caught Crabby's eye calls it a cure but no one else in authority positions does, it's just a treatment that's been shown to be much more effective than that voodo that you do so well. And the "daemon" rantings she made wasn't as a MD, it was as a lay evangelical preacher, and at least she wasn't doing the rattlesnake handling thing.

U.S. solar power plant backed by over $700 mln in govt loans goes bust -filing
Nichola Groom
ReutersJuly 30, 2020, 11:16 AM
By Nichola Groom

July 30 (Reuters) - The owner of a big Nevada solar-thermal power plant that received $737 million in loans from the U.S. Department of Energy filed for bankruptcy on Thursday, according to a court filing, potentially leaving U.S. taxpayers with a whopping bill.

The project's failure is a blow to the DOE renewable energy loan program, which had already been criticized by Republicans as a waste of money after it backed failed solar panel maker Solyndra during the Obama administration.

Tonopah's 110-megawatt plant in the Nevada desert was billed as the first to be able to store solar energy. But its technology, which uses more than 10,000 mirrors to focus the sun's heat on a tower to create steam, was both unreliable and expensive.

Soon after it began operating in 2015, the facility suffered a string of leaks in its hot salt tank, a key component of its energy storage system. It has not operated since April of 2019.

The plant had been selling power at $139 per megawatt-hour, the company said. Solar energy contracts for large photovoltaic projects today are generally below $30 per MWh.

Obama added insult to injury with his highly political and vitriolic campaign speech which he substituted for the eulogy that he was supposed to give at Lewis' funeral.

The video was “not about the overthrow of America, not about anti-Semitism, not promoting terrorism—but talking about experience, science, medical knowledge about hydroxychloroquine," Levin said.

"There’s no engagement of ideas. There’s no debate over the science and the medicine. The left is totalitarian. Squarespace is totalitarian. Twitter, Facebook, Google are totalitarian. Andrea Mitchell, MSNBC, CNN—the whole freak show over there—totalitarian."

On July 19 our Liar in Chief stated in an interview that aired July 19 on "Fox News Sunday.

"We're signing a healthcare plan within two weeks, a full and complete healthcare plan."

Well Trumpers that means we'll have that plan signed by next Monday. Problem is it hasn't even been presented to the public let alone debated and reviewed before his touted "signing. George, is this an example of outright lying or one that in your view will be fulfilled by his stated deadline on Monday?

"President Donald Trump said he plans to approve a healthcare plan "within two weeks," in an interview that aired July 19 on "Fox News Sunday."

The president didn't provide details on what would be included in the healthcare plan, but he said major healthcare and immigration initiatives would be put in place in coming weeks.

"We're signing a healthcare plan within two weeks, a full and complete healthcare plan," President Trump said. "We're going to sign an immigration plan, a healthcare plan, and various other plans. Nobody will have done what I'm doing in the next four weeks."

PaulE 1018am - I think you again misunderstand such statements.

Now are you among those who don't understand such bravura, and instead breathlessly seek to add it to your people's stash of 'thousands of Trump lies'.

Yes, this is an inconsequentially inaccurate statement that doesn't compare with the ones made by the Dem leadership, lies that actually cause rank and file Americans to make erroneous decisions which affect their lives and livelihood. I've spent some effort in these pages pointing them out to you so you can perhaps learn to tell the difference. Alas.

PaulE 101pm - Are you really doubting that Obama was a habitual liar? Your use of "claim" communicates a belief that Obama did not lie, really?

But what you really miss in these exchanges is the aplomb with which you and yours use asymmetry to gleefully highlight the bygone sins of Republicans when necessary to make your point, and then turn around to mount the high horse with 'well, that was then, but this is now' when others take their turn at citing the bygone iniquities of Demorcrats.

paul emery

The bottom line George that you don't seem to give a shit that Trump continually lies to the American people. It is intelligent people like you that have allowed the Republican party to support this behavior because you are an enabler of Trump.
Whatever happens to the Republican party, as you articulated brilliantly in your Dilemma of a Disillusioned and Disaffected Republican post, is because of people of your persuasion that refuse to speak out against this man who is a total liar. My latest example occurs almost every day.

In 2016 you expressed in this blog that you were a Romney supporter early on. Romney is at least a man of integrity and he has been ostracized by the Party.

My speculation is that Trump will probably lose so the question is where does the Republican party go from here. Of course I may be wrong but that's the way it looks at this time and although you won' express it you probably agree.


My latest example occurs almost every day.

Yes......yes it does!

PaulE 226pm - My position on Trump's bravura and the nature of his lies is a matter of public record on RR. I wish you had read it. I constantly take Trump and Republicans to task when I don't agree with them. I also understand the nature of politics and politicians, and know which in battles I can make a dent or just bend my pick. I don't see you or yours being either candid or critical with the absolute horseshit that the Left has been handing the country for years, and now has shifted into hyper-drive in Congress, the media, and our city streets.

I don't believe the need for universal health care horseshit. The Republicans have offered NOTHING as an alternative to Obamacare and it is a crucial need for millions of American families and citizens. Tell me, what have Trump and the Republicans offered as an alternative. Links appreciated

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 39% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -4. (see trends)"

Is the Romney you're talking about the same Romney who made billions by packing up American jobs and factories, sending them to China to enable CalPERS/STRS to meet their performance goals?

Can you provide some links for that Gregory. Interesting observation if true.

paul emery

Yeah Gregory

Rasmussen is all over the place. Last wednesday Trump was down by 13. Week before he was up by 1 week before that he was down by 9. Why do you think that is Gregory? They are the only poll with such mood swings. Glad it makes you feel good. Trump still down by nearly 8 in RCP election votes averages and down by 107 in RCP electoral vote polls.

I can't be bothered to revisit history you slept through when it was happening. Try searching a browser with this query: 'did bain capital send jobs overseas?'

No, Rasmussen isn't all over the place.

A new reason to open our mines.

Our local gold mines are full of the stuff.
"“Fool’s gold,” an inexpensive substance also known as pyrite, is often found in quartz veins and is used primarily to create sulfuric acid for industrial applications, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The University of Minnesota team had separately been researching ways to try and make new kinds of solar panels out of sulfur and iron sulfide materials, Leighton said. And they had begun looking into ways to use electrical voltages to control magnetism."

Is Emery buying stock in the Tonopah solar plant?
Now would be a good time. It's cheap.
