Just hours later, police found another group of 60 people listening to the climate change recordings huddled around the giant facsimile of a vagina in a dock building nearby.

“The group was listening to recordings about climate change and Mother Earth while assembled around a 4 ft. model of a vagina,” Richmond Police Chief Al Walle wrote on Facebook. “The group was identified, warned for trespassing, and escorted out of Point Molate.”

Walle said the second group had no affiliation but instead was “some type of cult gathering,” without giving specifics. Inside the dock building, police “located some items (that won’t be further described) that led the officers to believe this was some type of occult group or activist group since this event was in close proximity to the Chevron refinery,” the police department said.

So Nevada City has an opening on the city council.

You have been great at bitching about others in politics,, well now's your chance to show us how it's done.

Walt. Welcome home, I hope the recovery is doing well.

If you think for one moment that Punchy would run for public office in Nevada City, you are mistaken., IMHO. Punchy’s forte is to ask loaded questions based on false premises, innuendo, and distraction. He, on the other hand, does not care much for answering questions.

Imagine Punchy sitting on the City Council and being peppered by an hostile citizenry demanding answers now....answers to questions based on conspiracy theories and correlation equates to causation. Then Punchy would have to look at the city’s books and budgets to be informed about finances. He probably has no interest in that kind of stuff. No feelings involved in numbers crunching. Plus, I believe the city council is an unpaid position...well, at least it used to be.

Hmm. Wait a minute. Being on the receiving end of endless gotcha questions might be the perfect Karma scenario for our Buzzard of Broad Street. Go for it Paul Emery! Run, Punchy, run.
And tear down those racist genocidal environmental destruction mining artifacts from in front of the so called miners’ Cultural Center while you are at it.

Perhaps in your situation you could take questions submitted in writing on-line.

"Run, Punchy, run."

Almost a dead-nuts certainty that he's not a Nevada City resident except for perhaps sharing a zipcode.

More bad news for Trumpsters!!!

This polling averages delegate count shows Biden up by 160 delegates. The count is Biden 279 Trump 119 with 149 tossups.

Trump has to win all 149 tossups plus 20 now in the Biden count.
Look for major defections from the Republican base if things don't turn around very soon.

So it begins. the shunning of Trump:

Senate Democrats' largely symbolic bid to cut off the Trump administration's support for a Supreme Court challenge to Obamacare failed as expected Thursday, but several Republicans facing tough reelections crossed party lines to back the measure.

Sens. Martha McSally of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Joni Ernst of Iowa and Dan Sullivan of Alaska, who are trying to reassure voters about their defense of insurance protections for preexisting conditions, backed the Democrats' measure. Another Republican, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who opposed Obamacare repeal efforts three years ago, also supported the bill.

But keep shill'n for lie'n Biden. We see you now back liars.

paul emery

My overall opinion Walt is that Trump should not be elected for a second term because he is mentally ill, a terrible President that has levt the economy in total chaos and doesn't have a clue as to how to exert his leadership as commander in Chief in the war against the Corona Virus. Besides that he's a serial liar and cannot be trusted to tell the truth.

I'm not alone-This is from a former chair of the Republican National Committee. From Fox News:

"Marc Racicot, a former governor of Montana as well as an ex-chairman of the Republican National Committee, endorsed Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president in an interview this week.
placeholder

“Even as a Republican, I will not be supporting Donald Trump for president, and I will not be voting for him,” Racicot, 72, told Home Ground Radio host Brian Kahn. “That means that I’ll be voting for Joe Biden for president.”

The half-hour interview, focused on the state of U.S. politics in general, turned to the 2020 election near its end.

The former Montana governor and Republican National Committee chair said on Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020, he will vote for Democrat Joe Biden in the November election, citing character flaws in President Donald Trump. (AP Photo/Jim Bryant, File)

Racicot was elected Montana governor in 1992 and again in 1996 and spent two years heading the RNC before joining President George W. Bush’s reelection campaign in 2004.

He said chief executives elected at all levels should have “a sense of decency, a sense of respect, a sense of hard work” and be willing to consider opposing opinions.

OK Keep your opinion with no facts to back them up.
Live in that alternate reality.
He's more sane than you. He's created the best economy since WWII.
But you go right ahead and believe whatever you care to. 4 years of hate has rotted your mind.

Remember? You took the LIB bait Trump colluded with the Russians. Pure LIB lies Emery. You backed a sham impeachment.

I can bring plenty more to prove you wrong.
But we all know facts mean jack shit to you.

Walt

"serial liar and cannot be trusted to tell the truth."
Yet your backing Biden? Yup,, you have lost your mind.

And Biden is a serial liar who has a difficult relationship with the truth.

BTW Rasmussen has Trump up a bit, and the USC Dornsife poll is virtually unchanged.

OK Emery, what was the unemployment rate BEFORE China set the virus free into the world? People were getting paychecks, not welfare checks. Employers had to raise hourly wage just to get a worker. More job openings than there were workers..
Unemployment just about ZERO.
Yes, TRUMP did that. The U.S.,, energy independent. Trump did that.
Yet today you and your LIBS want to keep every business shuttered. In essence, destroying the Trump economy.

How will people pay their taxes Emery? Your dear Leader Gavin still wants his property taxes. Who's going to help pay those?

Nope,, you don't care what happens, as long as it supposedly hurts Trump. Burn the nation down if that's what it takes.

PaulE 201pm - Your statement that Trump has "left the economy in total chaos and doesn't have a clue as to how to exert his leadership as commander in Chief in the war against the Corona Virus" would make an interesting discussion were you able to provide any evidence or support for your claims. A knowledgeable criticism would contain examples of Trump's shortcomings which could have been avoided given what was known at the time and the Constitution's delegations of powers to the Executive. Can you do that? What you've given here and repeated countless times is just another baseless expression of your TDS - yawn. However, you and yours do take a measure of pleasure from such exercises.

"Are you satisfied with the current economic situation also is over 200k deaths due to Corona an acceptable number of casualties in what Trumps describes a war in which he is Commander in Chief? "

Hey, I can answer that (waving hand around).

Sure.

I just looked up the GDP drop in Sweden (who did basically nothing), the UK (who did more than the US) and the US.

Sweden had less of a drop in GDP and a teensy bit higher death rate than the US
UK had a larger drop in GDP and a teensy bit lower death rate than the US.

You were saying? Can you show us on the doll where the Bad Orange Man touched you?

My general take is that all of this policy is rather ad lib and you hope for the best. Lots of players, lots of iron rice bowls, not much understanding of what are quite complex systems (no surprise there).

I mean, seriously Paul, doesn't being a propagandist get tiring after a while? Do you want to go to your grave just being an asshole on the internet?

Paul Emery

Also in the other poll you cite Gregory, they have Biden up by 9-51-42. Are you claiming that is good?

George Rebane

PaulE 336pm - 200K deaths sounds about right given the global experience of C19 death rates. Recall that what we're really interested in is excess deaths. And the economy could be better and would be better had the Democrat governors and mayors not imposed and then extended draconian lockdown policies in their jurisdictions. But that was expected because the Dems want the deaths to be as high as possible and economy to be as bad as possible before the election (I've explained this in detail). All this because then you and yours will hyperventilate loudly across the land that it was all Trump's fault. And yea verily, there we have it, just as predicted.

Now let's hear your substantive reason for blaming Trump and giving us the alternative policies that would have prevented all this. I notice that you, as usual, gave no response to my 300pm.

"Union bosses in the swing state of Pennsylvania admit they are struggling to convince their rank-and-file members to vote against President Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

Biden, for years, has claimed to support the interest of America’s union workers. His record, dating back to the 1990s, has consistently been at odds with those interests, however."

https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/10/01/carney-new-york-times-is-wrong-trump-paid-millions-taxes-2017/
"The figures below, drawn from the New York Times’s own analysis of Trump’s tax-return data for 2017, show that Trump paid $7,435,857 in taxes in 2017."

"What confused the Times is Trump did not pay the liability with a check. He used a credit issued to him earlier by the government, a credit that can only be used to pay taxes."

"In other words, Trump paid the full amount of his taxes but spent $7,435,107 of his tax credit and $750 of cash. Both cash and the credit are government liabilities that the U.S. government accepts as payment for taxes. Paying the credit is not the equivalent of not paying taxes."

Emery owes Trump a public apology.

Dimbulb @ 6:26- We don't know the death count in the home country of the Kung Flu, India (thank God) has so far been spared a major outbreak (lots of interesting speculation here, including mostly HCQ) and the United States has the third largest population in the world. What would you expect, no matter who was in charge? Per capita death rate is not out of line with most European countries and I suspect the Germans are counting differently, most likely in a more rigorous fashion than we.

And Trump is responsible how?

George Rebane

PaulE 557pm - Paul, your response is beyond lame and not very professional. Breitbart didn't just make a naked assertion that Trump paid millions in taxes, they went through a detailed analysis and cited the tax code's AMT which Trump could not avoid. Such an analysis deserves more from you than just claiming to discredit the messenger. It is up to you to either submit a counter-analysis or cite one that proves Breitbart wrong. You just tucked tail and ran from this one.

And your 626pm is just plain embarrassing. It displays extreme innumeracy when you don't understand that to compare any population based stats between countries, say, the US and Sweden, it is ignorant and irrational to cite absolute numbers. When comparing such stats, it is done with rates like 'per capita' or 'per 100,000'. The fact that you didn't know this and asked "What more do you need to illustrate Trumps incompetence?" says it all about your ability to reason about these things. But more than that, it also speaks volumes about all the "college educated" progressives who are equally innumerate in repeating such questions in the national news outlets. And what does all this say about the millions of Democrat voters who actually believe this bullshit?

Don Bessee

First of all the pony tail of ignorance shows he reads nothing on these threads as i posted the exact details of the Prez paying millions in estimated taxes with his standard application for extension to gather documents.

The IRS kept many many millions of estimated tax to apply to future tax bills even though the Prez had operating write offs like interest and expenses as well as carry forward losses.

To say that is above his head is the understatement of the century for a guy who files a 1040ez to get his earned income tax credit. ROFLOL!!!

Trump sees approval rating increase, majority expect him to beat Biden: poll

Gallup released its results on Thursday, claiming that Trump saw his highest approval rating (46%) since May with approvals on his handling of certain issues, other than the economy, below 50%.

The data, which was gathered in the two weeks before the debate, reflected an uptick from the 42% Trump received earlier in September. That increase, the polling company suggested, could be associated with his response to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

"Although the increase of four percentage points in Trump's latest rating is not statistically significant, the poll's internals suggest a rise in his support the second half of the Sept. 14-28 field period coincident with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death and lying in state, as well as Trump's announcing that he would quickly make a nomination to the Supreme Court. This suggests that some viewed his handling of the situation positively," a press release from Gallup reads.

For comparison, Gallup reported President Obama's approval rating at 47% and 50% around the same time in 2012.

For the record: “Few combinations are more poisonous than race and politics. That combination has torn whole nations apart and led to the slaughters of millions in countries around the world.” —Thomas Sowell

Observations: “The debate probably moved very few votes. Trump achieved his goal of showing that he is the vigorous, dominant figure who is able to execute the duties of the presidency on behalf of Americans. Biden achieved his goal of showing that he can stand up for an hour and a half, remember his lines and occasionally make sense. The carnival now moves on.” —John Hinderaker

Upright: “When allegiance to your political tribe is stronger than the bond of your wedding vows, when the kinship you experience with your political allies is stronger than blood, when newly adopted partisan ideals allow you to discount and dismiss lifelong friendships, it’s not just that your priorities are distorted. It’s that your soul is adrift in moral confusion.” —Peter Heck

From the Captain Obvious Files: “The World Health Organization has long encouraged mass tourism and said closing borders wouldn’t stop the spread of Covid-19. A New York Times investigation found this policy was never based on science, but instead on politics and economics.” —New York Times

KIMBERLY STRASSEL: Comey’s testimony ‘vivid reminder’ election won’t hinge only on the issues

Well, well, well. Finally found one lefty journo who does not have TDS. Amazing what a clear head can do for one’s POV. His career is probably over. Maybe someday we will find his bones buried under Biden’s basement.

A CASE STUDY IN PUNITIVE LIBERALISM
A few days ago a liberal columnist for the Seattle Times wrote a good column about the collapse of small business in the downtown core of the Emerald City: “Self-inflicted wounds make Seattle’s business losses worse.” Someone in Seattle’s media is finally getting it:

“Shops were looted, in some cases repeatedly, this past summer. It sullies the cause of social justice protests to link the two together. The looting was pure criminality.

The city’s lack of prosecution for most shoplifting is another big DIY problem. It played heavily into Macy’s decision to close before COVID-19 and is extremely costly for small retailers. Fear of street crime also helped kill the Kress IGA, my neighborhood supermarket. The chronic unsheltered, drug dealers and the mentally ill keep customers away and worry employees.

The loss of Bergman Luggage (and its big neon sign) is especially telling. Owner Hardial Gill said the downtown location had been profitable and the landlord accommodating during the pandemic. But the store faced repeated burglaries, tents on the sidewalk and finally looting. . .

Mayor Jenny Durkan appears uncomfortable interacting with the business community and has lost power to an assertive council. That body is obsessed with defunding the police without a viable Plan B. Its membership is stuffed with career activists and pols, with thin business experience at best.

No wonder the council is hostile to business. Even the smallest shop is exploitative capitalism. The council’s loudest voices are running a “revolution.” Only in a city made so prosperous by hated capitalism could this intellectual Ponzi scheme be tolerated or seem without consequences.”

This summary of a linked news piece about sums up why Trump is dying in the polls and will probably lose the election:

Fed Up in Flyover Country

Donald Trump has alienated many of his former supporters in the heartland. It’s not his policies. It’s him.


"But their distaste might be a telling indicator of why Trump is floundering in polls across the country. It isn’t necessarily about a policy or a broken promise, it’s about Trump as a person. Trump’s bare-knuckled personality—which was on full display at the Tuesday debate—has been his calling card. He has said things that no one else dares, and his base loves him for it. But for this group of former supporters, Trump’s personality has become his biggest liability."

I just assume that they're pretty much interchangeable. There's a whole class of illiterate social media/internet addicts who quickly type a short article every day or so based on their daily web browsing.

I've been thinking lately about why people got so stupid (and gullible) in the last decade or so. It isn't like the internet hasn't been around for some time. Is there more immediacy in social media than USENET causing feedback loops of crazy? Mobile phones and being online 12 hours/day? Increased acceptability of browsing at work? A less skeptical audience due to it's greater downmarket movement? As someone with a certain amount of public trust (as News Director of a radio station) it would be interesting to track Paul's online activity.

Pizzagate and the Russian conspiracy theories show how fast and furious the stupid can be.

More from our racist President. Is there any doubt at this point? Direct quote from Trump:

“By the way, just so we can get this straight, 30 percent of the people in the suburbs are low-income people. Thirty percent of the people in the suburbs are minorities. And so we’re ruining this American dream for everybody,” Trump said.

"They zone you out, they build low-income housing next to your house," Trump continued. "And then I hear I'm not doing well in the suburbs. I'm not doing well in the suburbs — are you people crazy?"

re: Paul Emery@12:32PM with some 'politico' quote that doesn't even sound particularly racist since nobody wants Section 8 housing moving to their neighborhood.

Like I say @12:33 "There's a whole class of illiterate social media/internet addicts who quickly type a short article every day or so based on their daily web browsing."

Of course, Politico sez it's racist so you are going to scuttle over here and cough it up on the doorway.

Paul 12:35 - No Paul, that's not what he's saying.
He's pointing out that it's not just affluent white people in the 'burbs. That there are non-whites and poorer folks there as well.
The Dems plan to start pushing 'projects' into the suburbs will end up hurting everyone that lives in the suburbs.
Skin color has no bearing on the quality of people that end up in subsidized housing projects. They ruin the neighborhoods around them and run property values down.
That's why wealthy white leftys never, ever, ever allow projects anywhere near where they live.

PaulE 1235pm - Not sure that many of us understand what is racist about that Trump quote - pleas explain. And while you're at it, care to take a stab at what you mean by 'racist'? It seems that no one on the Left can or even wants to define the word.
