‘Trump’s Promise to Revive Coal Thwarted by Falling Demand, Cheaper Alternatives’ read the headlines. Coal production has continued to fall under President Trump in spite of his relaxing of anti-coal regs and continuing endorsement of the fossil fuel. It’s just that renewables continue to get cheaper along with the increased production and price drops in fracked natural gas. Now, does this count against Trump as one of his ‘lies’ or ‘broken promises’ as our liberals would have us believe?

And when we return to the streets, then there's this -

‘Study: Up To 95 Percent Of 2020 U.S. Riots Are Linked To Black Lives Matter’
A report accompanying the data project, however, reads like an upscale attempt to blame the police for criminals’ decision to steal, kill, and destroy.

“Contrary to corporate media narratives, up to 95 percent of this summer’s riots are linked to Black Lives Matter activism, according to data collected by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED). The data also show that nearly 6 percent — or more than 1 in 20 — of U.S. protests between May 26 and Sept. 5 involved rioting, looting, and similar violence, including 47 fatalities.”

REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN AIDE MURDERED IN MINNEAPOLIS
“Lacy Johnson is the Republican who is challenging Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s 5th District. Lacy is an excellent candidate fighting an uphill battle.

Last night, two of his campaign volunteers were shot in North Minneapolis. The local CBS outlet has the story:

The 17-year-old boy killed and another man hurt Monday in a north Minneapolis shooting were members of a Republican congressional candidate’s campaign.

The Lacy Johnson campaign says the two victims were members of the outreach team and were not performing campaign duties when the shooting occurred Monday afternoon at the intersection of North Fremont and Dowling avenues.

Minneapolis police say a group of people were standing outside of a Super USA convenience store when one or more shooters opened fire. The teenager and the man were hit, and emergency crews brought them to Hennepin Healthcare for treatment. The teenager was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Investigators are still searching for the shooters, who fled the scene on foot.”.....

“The CBS story concludes:

Minneapolis has experienced a surge in gun violence this summer. According to police, this year is on track to double 2019’s homicide total.”

One wonders whether Black Lives Matter and Antifa will ever be held accountable for the wave of violence they have encouraged and helped to unleash.

“As far as I can tell from the Post’s report, the findings Mayor Warren relied on don’t dispute this. Instead, they use subjective words like “insularity, acceptance, and. . .callousness,” with “cavalier” and “unsympathetic” thrown in for good measure.

It’s challenging enough for officers to deal with thugs and aggressive nut jobs who are out to harm them. Expecting officers to be sympathetic towards this “client base” is asking too much.“

Cut the police budget and add more social workers. Or, let the people “police” themselves, like we saw in Chaz City in Seattle. How did that work out? Rape, murder and extortion to add to the Lists of Demands. Mercy.

Speaking of lies George how about this one. Is Trump lying or is he just plain illiterate or stupid when he said this. Keep in mind this man is President of the United States which is why I support any available alternative. It could have been a Republican if the Repubs had the courage,which they don't, to replace him. Trump quote:

“With time it goes away,” Trump said during an ABC News town hall in Pennsylvania when pressed by host George Stephanopoulos on his public comments about the virus. “You'll develop, you'll develop herd — like a herd mentality. It's going to be, it’s going to be herd-developed, and that's going to happen. That will all happen. But with a vaccine, I think it will go away very quickly.”

Aha! Politico takes a page out of the Punchy Playbook.

‘INVISIBLE MAN? Joe Biden Goes Unmentioned in Politico Playbook’

“Although Tuesday's Politico Playbook PM by Anna Palmer, Jake Sherman, Eli Okun, and Garrett Ross runs over 2200 words and covers a wide variety of political subjects, the number of times that Joe Biden is mentioned is...ZERO.

Yes, despite this being in perhaps the most important election in many years, a major party candidate for president has gone down the rabbit hole in a section detailing the intricacies of politics.”....

“Apparently Biden is unconsciously being treated by Politico as a mere empty vessel whose only role is not being Trump. Oh, and somehow the Playbook missed that the "Not Trump" made his second campaign appearance outside of Delaware since Labor Day in Florida on Tuesday. As of this writing "Not Trump" will be taking a "lid" day on Wednesday so at least you will have an excuse for not mentioning him in the next Politico Playbook. In fact, with all his embarrassing gaffes, best not to even write about "Not Trump" in too much or, better yet, any detail.“

Daily Quotes

Upright: “At the civic, constitutional level the United States is not systemically racist. But systemic racism, at a theological level, is a real thing. … Why? Because people are sinners. … The problem with churches engaging civicly on the theological front on this is simple — the United States demands a separation of church and state. The answer to systemic racism is the gospel of Jesus Christ. The United States will not accept that answer. Therefore, churches are left to do what exactly? Work with those on the left who reject Christianity to enact public policy solutions that are devoid of Jesus, implemented by sinners who do not recognize systemic racism as a sin, and fueled by a moment that sees everything as an allocation of power? Good luck with that.” —Erick Erickson

Observations: “No personal agency is required, or indeed is any part, of a systemic phenomenon. And there’s the beauty of systemic-racism theory: ‘who’s to blame’ is never answered with any particularity that will fix responsibility on known persons, for the answer is ‘why, everyone!’ What could be more impervious to contrary evidence than a wholly impersonal conspiracy theory about human behavior?” —Matthew J. Franck

Political futures: “The ability for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Republicans to stop a potential Biden administration from passing the Equality Act or the Green New Deal would essentially be gone if Democrats take back the Senate and vote to remove the filibuster. This plan being devised by Democrat strategists to radically shape our country is unlike anything we have ever seen before. At stake in this election is not just the difference of a few executive actions or policy preferences but rather the difference between a country in which all human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives or one that seeks to destroy innocent life, undermine families, and is hostile towards religion.” —Tony Perkins

For the record: “Over the past four years we have watched as factions within the Justice Department and the Pentagon have unilaterally decided that the American people made a horrible mistake in 2016 — a mistake that must be nullified. It is true that Trump’s volatility and habit of naming officials who are antagonistic to his goals doesn’t help his cause. It is also true that at no time in modern history has the bureaucratic machinery of the executive branch worked so openly to undermine the legal policy goals of the president.” —David Harsanyi

Nailed it: “Instead of us doing business with China and that leading to China becoming more free, what has happened is a place like China has bought our silence with their money. They have just completely shut down critical content about human rights abuses in China.” —Hollywood director Judd Apatow

Non compos mentis: “It’s bold. It’s feminist.” —"Cuties" director Maïmouna Doucouré

And last… “[Football’s] not for protesting one way or the other. What color you are, what you think, this or that. You play football. That’s it. You’re privileged. You got a gift from God that you can play the game because you got a body you can do it with. I don’t really understand what you’re protesting. … I would tell those players go to another country and play football there. You don’t have to come out. You don’t have to come out if you go to another country. You can’t! Because the game’s only played in this country. And if you can’t respect this country, get the hell out of it.” —Hall of Fame coach Mike Ditka

WAs that Paul Emery is front of that Trump supporters house? And doing the watusi dance? Seems that PE has a bad case of TDS and the only cure is Trump in a landslide. Since he seeks to be rising in the polls the loons like PE get more and more frustrated and nitpick Trump's words. Of course no praise for getting the troops home or a peace deal in the middle east. Seems it was not long ago PE was criticizing about the USA involvement there. What his words prove is there is nothing Trump can do that will ever give PE back his brain cells. Too much ganja.

“The survey of 2,500 Likely Voters was conducted September 9-10 and 13-15,” per the polling firm, and this is more proof of Trump’s momentum.

Not lying Gregory, just noting your constant support for Trump no matter what he says or does. George is critical of Trump on occasion but you've not spoken a word of concern for example that the debt will rise around 7 Trillion bucks under Trumps first term. As a self declared Libertarian you should be appalled by that but not a chirp from you on it.

I might be the only person on this blog (besides you) who didn't vote for Trump. Ever.

OMG. That one got my jaw to drop. How many posts has Dr. Rebane written and posted under topic on herd mentality concerning the virus. Charts and graphs and many many words. Too many to reference right now. Hundreds upon hundreds of news organizations did segments and articles about COV-19 and herd mentality. Sweden in particular.

Well, we found ourselves the one news director on the planet that has to ask, “What exactly is "herd mentality" George and how does that apply to the virus? “.

Where to these ass hats come from? And all this time I thought the term of endearment ‘Pony Tail of Ignorance’ may not 100% accurate. I thunk wrong. Too funny.

Hey GEORGE, what is this herd mentality of which you speak? What the heck does it have to do with the Wuhan Virus? Whatever it is, Trump lied.

Paul Emery

So scenes what you are saying is that if you don't support Trump you don't love our country.

I guess that includes Gregory who hasn't voted for Trump in the past. If he votes for Trump he loves our Country if he doesn't that means he doesn't . That also includes all the people who vote libertarian or third party.

‘San Francisco to give $1,000 monthly stipend to pregnant Black, Pacific Islander women’

“Pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will get a $1,000 monthly supplement during and after their pregnancy in a first of its kind initiative meant to help improve health outcomes for both the mom and the baby.

Starting next year, 150 women will receive the supplement for the duration of their pregnancy and the first six month of their baby's life. The new initiative, called the Abundant Birth Project, has the goal of eventually providing the supplement to women for up to two years after pregnancy.”

BillT: " Sweden in particular."

I was thinking about Sweden yesterday. You've got the UK, who no doubt had a stricter regime than the US, with a higher COVID fatality rate....and then Sweden, who did essentially nothing, with a lower COVID fatality rate. Some of Latin America high, some low. Reporting issues or real?

Since the tendency is to use COVID as a political tool, and it's normal to somehow blame D. Trump, a lot of genuinely interesting things might get left on the cutting room floor. Are death rates based on latitude? Asians vs. non-Asians (the former being more likely to wear masks and/or already somewhat immune due to exposure and/or immune due to genetics)? obesity levels? urbanization? Hopefully someone with expertise actually looks into this and it isn't just all internet experts getting in a tizzy.

Godspeed, Ben Shapiro.

As of yesterday, Ben Shapiro has left CA. He is taking Daily Wire (with 100 employees) out of LA and out of CA. 75 employees are leaving, too.

Shapiro is an interesting person. Grew up in the typical small abode in the “Valley”, North Hollywood or Burbank area. Youngest person to attend Harvard at the time (16 years old). Graduated in 3 years, I believe. Was a Cruz supporter, like Mark Levin, for Cruz’s constitutional expertise. Didn’t care for him when he took on Milo for not being a conservative, just a provocateur. Not, all that has changed.

Bye, bye Ben. You chose a nice area to live. CA will miss your tax dollars, but I wouldn’t want to raise children in the LA area either. Good luck to you and your physician lovely bride.

‘In Atlantic Profile, Alex Vindman Claims To Love The Constitution He Keeps Trying To Destroy’

At its most basic, Alex Vindman thinks that bureaucrats have the right to substitute their judgment for that of the American people. None of us chose Vindman or his colleagues.

“Vindman wants to argue that foreign policy should be charted by “experts” within the bureaucracy, like himself, who study and determine the best course for America and the world. That flawed philosophy was on full display in Vindman and other civil servants’ testimonies during the impeachment hearings. When Vindman wrote that Trump’s call had undermined U.S. foreign policy, he meant Trump had undermined the preferred policy of unelected bureaucrats.

In contrast to his role in domestic matters, the president has “plenary and exclusive power . . . as the sole organ of the federal government in the field of international relations.” The Supreme Court examined the president’s supremacy in foreign affairs in United States v. Curtiss-Wright Export Corporation.

In that opinion, the court drew on constitutional principles and historic documents to reaffirm and emphasize that “[i]n this vast external realm, with its important, complicated, delicate and manifold problems, the President alone has the power to speak or listen as a representative of the nation.” In short, the president’s foreign policy stance is the official foreign policy stance of the United States.

Vindman’s opinion, as expressed in The Atlantic, that there are “guardrails” that define what is “acceptable” U.S. policy, is in direct contradiction to the president’s constitutional authority. Trump is empowered by virtue of his election to lead this nation as its chief executive, to alter and set foreign policy at will.”

First glimpse of joy started with ‘What does herd mentality have to do with the Chinese Virus, George.’ Oh, I dunno. Maybe after 60 million Americans were infected with SARS-CoV-1 and Obama stopped bothering to even use contact trackers anymore.....something about herd mentality in relation to the Coronas was discussed, SARS-CoV-1 (aka swine flue or Zika or Mad Cow or Ebola!, or the name of the last big one) does not cause much problems anymore even though it’s still around....due to herd (fill in the blank.).

The ad also features video from Fox News host Brett Baier questioning Biden’s National Press Secretary TJ Ducklo about the issue.

Ducklo famously was unable to answer the question after Baier pressed him for a “yes or no” answer.

I bet Emery is going to vote for Harris as she and Joementia stump on promising to do everything Trump has already done.
"Vote for us! We will tax the shit out of you again"
How's that for a campaign slogan Emery? A real vote getter... Right?

Look folks - Paul Emery got totally smoked by the Dems in 2008 and hornswoggled into voting for a total fraud. He loves to defend himself by saying he wasn't fooled again. Yeah - only fooled once.
Only half stupid.
Now he's sworn he'll vote for the Dem candidate no matter who or what.
It doesn't matter if they lie or cheat or fornicate more often than Trump. By golly, Paul has spoken and he's a man of his word.
He's so stupid, he vowed to vote for something of which he knows not.
So he'll keep it that way. He doesn't want to know anything about Harris or Biden.
Paul claims Trump isn't smart, but he also knows Trump would make mincemeat out of Biden in a one-on-one for 4 hrs.
So it's pointless to try to get Paul to defend the Dems or their platform or Biden or Harris.
All he can do now is pray Biden wins and is escorted out of the oval office as quickly as possible.

You won't see Harris rushing to her side to comfort her.

I need to get me one -

“It’s a shame I have to do this,” said Oliveria. “I believe in the president. Obviously, people didn’t like it.”

Oliveria, a 20-year veteran of the Navy and member of the New Bedford School Committee, said he had enough and it was time to take charge of things after he filed two police reports about the sign thefts.

Oliveria told WJAR that a separate sign, which read, “Voice Your Vote. Vote New Bedford” was never removed.

Since he installed the 3-1/2 foot fence, the 54-year-old disabled veteran said his sign has remained untouched.

Oliveria was a lifelong Democrat who recently changed his party affiliation to Republican, and said he would never go around stealing signs for the opposing candidate.

“That’s what our country is about. Different opinions and voicing them in a fair and equitable manner. Taking a sign is not fair and equitable,” said Oliveira. “You have to be able to respect each other or we won’t be able to accomplish anything if we don’t. Don’t mess with my right to free speech.”

‘Wisconsin Supreme Court Rejects Green Party Ballot Bid, Greenlights Immediate Start To Mail-In Voting’

“Wisconsin is one of the few states where third parties play an outsized role in presidential elections. In 2016, five third party candidates were on the state’s presidential ballot, including Libertarian Gary Johnson and then-Green Party candidate, Dr. Jill Stein.

Stein, left-leaning critics argued after Trump won the 2016 presidential election, likely cost then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a win in Wisconsin. Trump beat Clinton by around 23,000 votes; Stein, who more than likely pulled from Clinton, got 31,000 votes for president.

Johnson, who more than likely pulled from Trump, got 106,000 votes.

Trump Defends CNBC’s Cramer from Woke Twitter Mob, Says ‘No Pandering’

“President Dontald Trump, in a hilarious troll of the Twitter mob, defended Cramer: “Jim, you didn’t make a mistake. It’s true, and that’s why you said it. No pandering!””....

The leftist Daily Kos tweeted out a ridiculous hit piece with the caption: “Calls for CNBC host's resignation after he used a misogynistic slur live on-air to Nancy Pelosi.”

“Loony actress Bette Midler seethed at Cramer and wanted Pelosi to punch him out: “Jim Cramer called #NancyPelosi ‘Crazy Nancy’ to her face on his show, then said he was just imitating Trump. Nancy should punch him in the teeth and say she was just imitating Rand Paul’s neighbor.”

Stay classy, Bette.

Disgraced former Congresswoman Katie Hill screeched: “When he condescendingly says ‘you know what I mean’ after insulting her - he’s every dude who says something horrible and sexist and then goes ‘you know I was just joking.’” Hill is probably not the best person to raise moral issues”

Your friend Master Ben got my vote by lying,
That he was in Nursing school earning top grades... so I gave him a pass on education, in that he had nothing besides a high school diploma. But he wasn't in nursing school yet, on a waitlist. A long wait, apparently.

A minimum for my vote for a House seat is a bachelor's degree in a serious subject... nursing counts, ag education does not.

I've been a certificated pilot since 1974, instrument rated since the early oughts. The crunch of my PA-28 on takeoff on a hot day was found to be a mechanical failure by the FAA and NTSB, not pilot error, and I'm a named inventor on patents from my work at US Robotics and Cisco Systems. You?

Hmmm... more braggadocio might be called for... I was first trumpet in the Pomona College symphony as a freshman at Harvey Mudd College majoring in physics, and had a ball playing 1st trumpet for Werner Klemperer's debut as a conductor the same year in a local community symphony.

I picked up an MSEE along the way after starting my career on the technical staff of Hughes Aircraft. So, no phony scientific dickhead here... I'm the real deal scientific dickhead.

More tales from the Dark Side.

‘Leaked 2016 Call Reveals Joe Biden Risked National Security To Sabotage Trump’
Joe Biden exercised incredibly poor judgement, placing a highly classified counterintelligence operation at risk, and undermined the incoming administration.

“A recently leaked phone call between then-Vice President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko directly after the 2016 presidential election shows that Biden sought to sabotage the incoming Trump administration before Donald Trump even took office, and much worse.

During the course of the call, Biden badmouthed the incoming administration, saying, “The truth of the matter is that the incoming administration doesn’t know a great deal about [Ukraine]” and that they were unprepared for the transition. This in itself is inappropriate, but it was meant to set the stage for Biden’s next statement and future plans.

Biden then told Poroshenko, “I don’t plan on going away. As a private citizen, I plan on staying deeply engaged in the endeavor that you have begun and we have begun.” In a matter of moments, Biden undermined the incoming administration, branded them as not knowing anything about Ukraine, and attempted to set up a foreign policy backchannel for himself after he left office as a private citizen, which could violate the Logan Act.

The Logan Act bars private citizens from engaging in U.S. foreign policy, although its constitutionality remains questionable and no person has ever been convicted of violating it since it was signed into law in 1799. Ironically, this is the same act that, at Joe Biden’s suggestion, the FBI accused National Security Advisor Michael Flynn of violating as a result of a discussion Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States around nearly the same time as Biden’s call with Poroshenko.“

Oh well, not so different from Jimmy Carter or N. Pelosi travelling to Syria during the Bush administration. You can argue that a Lockheed salesman is pushing the edge when he's off getting the Saudis to buy shiny things.

You'll always have prominent people, typically people prominent purely through their ability to convince others rather than outright control or ownership, off doing their thing. It's fun if nothing else. You might as well just get rid of the law.

The Flynn case was simply a tool for toppling a Presidency just beginning, not dissimilar to the planning going on for impeachment *before* the inauguration.

"After no evidence of collusion or a crime by Flynn was found by the end of 2016, Strzok, McCabe, Comey, Yates, and perhaps even Obama retreated to that last refuge of the prosecutorial scoundrel, the Logan Act, under a theory that an unconstitutional crime is still better than no crime at all."

Daily Quotes. Walter Williams nails it.

Upright: “[Instituting] a national lockdown, stay-at-home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history. … Most of the governors do what bureaucrats always do, which is they … defy common sense. They treat free citizens as babies that can’t take responsibility for themselves and others.” —Attorney General William Barr

Political futures: “Increasingly, the message of the Democrats appears to be ‘Biden or no peace.’ … As an attorney general, I’m not supposed to get into politics. But … I think we are getting into a position where we’re going to find ourselves irrevocably committed to a socialist path. And I think if Trump loses this election, that will be the case.” —William Barr

For the record: “It’s very necessary to vote for President Trump.” —Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno

Observations: “Just last year, Netflix threatened to boycott Georgia if a pro-life law went into effect. Legalized abortion perpetuates the myth that there are ‘no consequences’ to engaging in sex outside of marriage, and it is often used by sexual abusers of children to cover up their crimes. By releasing the film ‘Cuties’ to its viewers, Netflix is now actively participating in the sexual exploitation of minors.” —Tony Perkins

Verbal gymnastics: “‘Cause if you could take care, if you were a quartermaster, you can sure in hell take care runnin’ a, you know, a department store, uh, thing, you know, where, in the second floor of the ladies department or whatever, you know what I mean?” —Joe Biden (Actually, we have no idea what Biden means.)

Braying jackass: “Let me be clear: I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. But I don’t trust Donald Trump. And at this moment the American people can’t either.” —Joe Biden

Alpha jackass: “Trump has more in common with Castro than with Churchill.” —Joe Biden

And last… “Today’s leftists, socialists and progressives would bristle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from those of Nazi, Soviet and Maoist mass murderers. Keep in mind that one does not have to be in favor of death camps or wars of conquest to be a tyrant. The only requirement is that one must believe in the primacy of the state over individual rights.” —Walter Williams

I need to remind you that Trumps 'diplomatic forays' have led to Syria now being a permanent Russian outpost, something they have sought for decades.

Who ever you are the truth is that there were four AF reserve units such as mine on the west coast and two were activated during the Viet Nam War. You are completely wrong that the Reserves were a way to avoid military service. Also not a word from you on Trumps rich kid deferment from the Draft for a minor sports injury.

Als there is no way the latest Idaho Mine project will ever be built without Grass Valley's approval and support. Such environmental details as roads, air quality water quality on the City of Grass Valley for a start. Everyone knows that.

PaulE 1138am - Were you to look more closely, you'd see that Putin was already ensconced in Syria before Trump took office. And further to that 'strategic foothold', Russia has now inherited a hornet's nest in the Levantine. Given their Afghanistan excursion of the 1980s, their treatment of Chechen Muslims and history with Caucasian regimes, no one trusts the Russian bear, least of all the Turks with whom they've already gotten bloody. Russians have been the neighborhood's bullies since the czarist days. Only liberals like Obama were ignorant enough to try and placate the Syrians cum Russians. Given his re-election,Trump will triumph diplomatically in the Mideast, a process now well under way. In time Syria will come to heel without US troops, Israel will be glad to help. The Harris/Biden team will restore SNAFU in the region.
