I think I found one of the two answers, Paul. Maybe. Only one more answer to find.

Punch: “Do you deny that the riot at the Capitol chanted Hang Pence while they were jingling the noose outside in encouragement? I grant you then it was symbolic but combined with a chanting crowd there was a true threat to h is life. What do you think would have happened to Pence if they hadn't hustled him to safety?” @ 7:44 pm.

Now, I did not see where you answered Yes (or no) to Gregory’s question about the gallows being a cheap stage prop. Is the “it” the gallows? What is symbolic? The stage prop gallows? “It is symbolic”? Was that your answer, Paul. Kinda not clear like a Yes or No would be. Kinda confusing about what you meant.

I guess it all depends on what the definition of it is. Now,where is the 2nd answer. Come on man, toss me a bone.

Bill Tozer

Paul

Was “it” the noose or the gallows? Thanks in advance for helping me find the 2nd answer. This is like a scavenger hunt. How exciting.

Anyway....while that gets sorted out.


IT WAS AN ARMED ANTI-GOVERNMENT INSURRECTION — BY FEDERAL OFFICERS! DEA agent charged with carrying badge and gun at Capitol riot. “An off-duty special agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency carried his government-issued firearm while attending the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday. Prosecutors say he posed for pictures while flashing his DEA badge and climbed onto the Peace Monument to film himself as he delivered a ‘monologue.'”

People took selfies and posed for pictures because they thought they weren’t doing anything wrong. They figured as Americans they had a right to protest, and they knew their behavior was much milder than what had been praised all summer. They just didn’t realize that the rules for them were different, because they thought they still lived in America.

Probably not much except cavort with his 'little fishies' (h/t Tiberius) in the White House hot tub. God knows what the various factions running the machine are really after but I expect I can guess what the aggregate feature set will be.

With the ancien regime back in the driver's seat (were they ever really out?) you can expect lots of pieces being moved on the board. Consistently rolling 6's seems to be built into the calculations but it all makes for good TV. Keeping the 'Black Tulip' filled up is just the cost of doing business.

re: Nooses. My bet is that the evilrevolutioninsurrectionists simply picked up a Bubba Wallace Brand(tm) noose and built an appropriate gallows. Just imagine the uproar if the gallows was made from Legos.

It's nice to see a long-form article. Worth a read if you care about such matters.

Yer tax dollars at work:

"The prosecution has already emerged as a critical test for how the Biden administration approaches the growing threat of homegrown anti-government groups. More than that, though, the case epitomizes the ideological divisions that have riven the country over the past several years. To some, the FBI’s infiltration of the innermost circle of armed anti-government groups is a model for how to successfully forestall dangerous acts of domestic terrorism. But for others, it’s an example of precisely the kind of outrageous government overreach that radicalizes people in the first place, and, increasingly, a flashpoint for deep state conspiracy theories."

Barry Pruett

Of course, I have a problem with anyone being injured. Although I am talking to a wall with a closed-mind, I will try one final time to engage you in a conversation as opposed to answering the stupid, rhetorical, generalized, and loaded questions you keep asking. If we cannot find some agreement here, I will no longer have any use for you as far as politics goes.

My point as been and will continue to be as follows:

Folks who break the law should be punished. If you were walking around the Capitol building on January 6, and you did not hurt anyone and were not being violent and were unarmed, there should be no reason to prosecute beyond a misdemeanor and a fine. Simple as this is free speech. If you engaged in violence or were armed or had intent to do something bad (ie, the guys with the zip tie handcuffs should be in jail), you are an idiot and deserve what is coming to you. Your whole schtick about the gallows is a joke. It was a prop, and it is free speech. Kathy Griffin with Trump's severed head is disgusting but also free speech. We have the right to petition the government. We have the right to make them feel uncomfortable. That is the way the system works. Prosecute the people who actually did bad things, but not the folks who did nothing violent.

Now and on the other hand and concerning the 2020 riots, those thugs that looted stores and burned building (FEDERAL BUILDINGS PAUL, WE ARE COMPARING APPLES AND APPLES) and assaulted police and killed police should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Those individuals who non-violently protested should be allowed to do that. Again, free speech.

Now the prosecutions in the 2020 riots are not really happening and there is my issue. We live in a society designed in part under the premise that we have equal protection under the law and laws will be applied consistently. That is not happening. If you are conservative or Republican there is one set of rules and if you are an activist (even a violent activist) or a progressive who supports Marxist ideas, you get a pass. If this dichotomy continues, you will see more January 6ths. Folks aren't going to lay down and allow there civil rights to be trampled when they feel that they are being singled out. Blacks did this in the 1960s and they were 100% correct.

If you cannot see what is going on, you are blind. Useful fool.

George Rebane

PaulE 815am - Do you really believe the ‘one hundred police injured’ story? What kind of ‘injuries’ were counted? I’ll start believing the Capitol Police when they tell us why they didn’t heed warnings, welcomed rioters into the Capitol, let us see the 14,000 hours of the 6jan21 security videos, and reveal who shot the protester and why. Today, those believing the Capitol police is another sure-fire litmus test for identifying a progressive.

re: GeorgeR@8:56

(IMO) The real heads-up that people should get, and a thing that's been true forever, is the utter arbitrariness of the federal law enforcement system. A person swept up into that meat grinder is subject to the politics of the hour, ambitious prosecutors, a gigantic system that needs feeding. A life can be destroyed at zero cost to the apparatchiks involved and there appears to be little rhyme or reason to the punishment meted out for a given crime.

"Conservative talk show host Larry Elder won his court challenge Wednesday to California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, who must place him on the list of candidates in the Sep. 14 election to recall incumbent Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).

As Breitbart News reported Tuesday, Elder’s campaign sued the Secretary of State after she excluded him from the list of 41 candidates to replace Newsom, if a majority of voters choose to recall him. The reason given was that Elder allegedly failed to file complete tax returns. Elder’s campaign denied that accusation, noting that he had turned in five years of tax returns on time, and also arguing that the law requiring candidates to submit tax returns did not apply to recalls anyway."

Not playing that game Emery. It took you six months to even say a word on it, despite repeated references to the attack. You were more concerned about the shoving match at your BLM cop hating march. When you finally did speak up(if you even want to call it that) you sure didn't have much to say. Along the lines of "So some kid with a bee bee gun scared some people....." And that's about all you had to say.

From a new book about Trump that just came out. The conversation is included in the link at the end of my post. Anderson Cooper reports:


Reporters Carol Leonnig and Phil Rucker's new book, I Alone Can Fix It, ends with a conversation with Donald Trump where he rattles off a random slate of conspiracy theories from attacking the 86 judges who wouldn't rule in his favor to the Supreme Court. But one major part of the recording has Trump saying that the whole ordeal was the fault of the Capitol Police because they "ushered" the protesters inside the building. Nothing of the sort happened, so it's unclear where Trump got his information. Protesters used poles and stole police shields to break windows and doors in an effort to get into the building.

Here are some quotes:

"We want to understand what did you want when you said 'go up there'?" Leonnig says in the recording, referring to Trump saying that he was going to march with the crowd to the Capitol.

"I would have said that you will show — not to go in, although they were ushered in by the police. I mean, in all fairness, the Capitol Police were ushering people in. The Capitol Police were very friendly, hugging and kissing -- you don't see that, but there's plenty of tape on that too, the Capitol Police, that's the way it is. I wanted -- personally, what I wanted is what they wanted. They showed up. Just to show support. Because I happen to believe the election was rigged. At a level like nothing has ever been rigged before. There's tremendous proof. There's tremendous proof. Statistically, it wasn't even possible that he won. I mean, things such as in Ohio, Iowa, there's never been a loss."

"Did you need better lawyers because they took it to court—?" asked Rucker.

"I needed better judges. The Supreme Court was afraid to take it, don't forget," said Trump.

In First Biden Presser, Compliant Corrupt Taxpayer-Funded Media Ask If He’s Just Too ‘Moral’ And ‘Decent’

In his first press conference since taking office 64 days ago, taxpayer-funded PBS White House reporter Yamiche Alcindor asked President Joe Biden whether migrants are crossing the southern border because he’s so “moral” and “decent.”

“You’ve said over and over again, that immigrants shouldn’t come to this country right now, this isn’t the time to come. That message is not being received,” Alcindor said as the nation faces a crisis of illegal immigration not seen in decades. “Instead the perception of you, that got you elected as a moral, decent man, is the reason why a lot of immigrants are coming to this country and trusting you with unaccompanied minors.”

Flashback:

Ted Cruz notes, “[B]asically what Joe Biden has decided is pipelines in America, bad. Jobs in America, bad. Pipelines in Russia, good. Jobs in Russia, good. And this is exactly backward. It is asinine. And four months into it, Joe Biden is crawling in bed with Putin and Russia (Putin cuddling perhaps) and the enemies of America. It doesn’t make any sense.”

Flashback: So is it fair to ask if Biden is on the payroll of Putin? As Walter Russell Mead wrote in 2017:

If Trump were the Manchurian candidate that people keep wanting to believe that he is, here are some of the things he’d be doing:

Limiting fracking as much as he possibly could
Blocking oil and gas pipelines
Opening negotiations for major nuclear arms reductions
Cutting U.S. military spending
Trying to tamp down tensions with Russia’s ally Iran.

You know who didn’t do those things? Trump. You know who is doing those things? Biden.

"Blocking oil and gas pipelines"

That's a peculiar bit of geopolitics. Dunno what business it is of the US to worry about gas movement between Russia and Germany. Of course, the people who actually run the country just love their game of Risk(tm). Pipelines are one of those things you can discuss to death in a meeting room in DC while moving pieces around a map.

Another angle that's a mystery to me is the hatred Team Blue has for pipelines. You'd rather use oil tankers, LNG ships, and railroad cars? My only guess is that it's a dick move to force people to either use less electricity or to move to their preferred technology of solar. Solar will happen as soon as it's cheap enough, it's not like PG&E cares how the power is made. I guess in the meantime we need to shutdown nuclear, natgas, coal, and force folks to use electric hot water heaters, home heat, dryers, and automobiles. Magic math uber alles.

THANK GOODNESS FOR CENSORS
The Biden administration has enlisted Facebook to police conversations among Americans. This is because the rest of us are too dumb to be trusted, and may fall for “misinformation.” So how does Facebook carry out its mission of uplifting our discourse? By censoring conversation about hoes in gardening groups:

Yeah....I remember when the usual suspects were just incensed that the Trump Family might be trading on the family name. I guess they just lost interest!

They certainly have not lost one iota of interest in the Trump Family might be trading on the family name....to this very hour. Nor Kavanaugh.

‘Democrats Revamp Attacks On Trump-Picked Justice Brett Kavanaugh In Letter To FBI Director’

“Seven Democratic Senators on Thursday said that newly released materials show the FBI failed to fully investigate sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated to the court in 2018,” Reuters reported Thursday.

“The senators, including Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) and Chris Coons (DE), said a letter they received from the FBI last month shows the agency gathered over 4,500 tips relating to Kavanaugh without any apparent further action by investigators,” the report added.

Lol. I remember when Coons, psycho Sheldon Whitehouse, and Stolen Valor Blumenthal found the smoking gun in Kavanaugh’s high school book. Boof means gang rape, not the expulsion of gas from the anus, usually a foul order. They had Brett by the balls now. Unqualified!

Coons, Whitehouse, and Stolen Valor Bloomenthal are walking talking dictionary definitions of an expulsion of gas from the anus, a foul odor.

‘Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson Owe You Nothing’

“Why don’t they fix the problems on earth?”

Sure, they could do that, if they want to. But if they don’t? That’s fine, too. The thing is — and this seems to be the part that far too many people seem to struggle with — it’s their money. It’s not your money; it’s theirs. And you don’t get a say in how they spend it.

Remove fweedom from the public eye! BLM supports Cuba. Remove it now!! We stand in solitary with BLM, not those agitators in Cuba! They are breaking the law. They disrespect authority!! Be gone.

‘D.C. Mayor Bowser Orders Removal Of Anti-Castro Mural On Same Street As Black Lives Matter Mural’

“Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser has no problem with Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter (BLM) painting the streets of D.C., but had officials scrub an anti-communism mural on the same street less than a day after it was painted.

“Cuba Libre” (“Free Cuba”) was painted near the Cuban embassy but Bowser made sure it was removed from the public eye Tuesday. The artwork was created with the intention of showing solidarity against the Cuban regime amid ongoing pro-liberty demonstrations“

‘George Soros funneled $1M to defund the police movement as violent crime continues to surge’

“The sum was Soros’s largest political donation of the 2021 election cycle and supported the PAC’s efforts to slash police budgets.”.....

“Soros’s donation is the latest in a string of financial contributions toward groups or candidates that advocate for defunding the police or that are soft on crime.

The billionaire donated $2 million for the campaign of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, who is facing a recall effort after he announced radical criminal reform changes.

The effort included "an end to cash bail, a ban on prosecutors seeking enhanced prison sentences, and showing leniency to many low-level offenders."

The Democratic megadonor has also funded other local prosecutor races across the country, helping Kim Gardner in Missouri, who released 34 of 36 individuals arrested during the summer riots in her city last year; District Attorney Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, who fired 31 prosecutors from his office and ordered police groups to lower prosecutions dramatically and shorten probation and parole periods; Kim Foxx in Chicago, who ended felony prosecutions for a number of crimes and deferred prison sentences; and Rachael Rollins in Massachusetts, who ran on a platform of decriminalizing an array of offenses.”

THE METAPHYSICS OF BACON
I know you’ve all heard of the famous “plant-based” impossible burger, which is deeply confusing because I’ve always thought every one of my burgers was “plant-based”—cows eat plants, and then I eat the cow. QED. Now comes news that someone is trying to make “plant-based bacon,” and count me skeptical. Actually, if you do a web search, you will find lots of links to “vegan bacon,” which has to be near the great oxymoron ever conceived by a postmodern English department. I say, with Homer Simpson, that you’ll never replace that miracle animal that gives us bacon, hot dogs, sausage, pork shops, baby back ribs, kielbasa, and the rest.

Our friends at the indispensable Foundation for Economic Education did a roundup of 15 key facts and health benefits of bacon a while ago, and some of these deserve highlight and commentary (in italics):

Even if you can’t touch bacon anymore, you can always dream.......

Also Brother Walt, while you are here, check out the 8:05 am above. Nevada County makes the news! (again). Friggin thieving low life pieces of human debris.

Thanks Bill.. FAKE BACON!!! Now that's going TOO FAR!!!
Can we test it on Emery? If he likes it's we know it's LIB food. Unfit for human consumption.
It's bad enough I'm working on a VEGIN drive through project in Roseville.
It might take 20 years to begin making a profit, since they decided to build in that Roseville lava-cap.

Pot growers have been swiping water for decades.
I know of a few water trucks that have been making "deliveries".
Yet the next gen mine haters. give the GV mine crap?

By the way Biden is up by 25% in job approval from when Trump left office. From the consensus poll from the Conservative RCP

Biden up by 9.6 Trump was down by 15 when he left office. If you compare identical dates Trump was down by 18 July 23 2017. Thats a 28% difference. And you think Trump is more popular than Biden, That's delusional. Biggest loser in modern history Donald Trump.

Bringing back Daily Quotes

Insight: “Although the legal and ethical definitions of right are the antithesis of each other, most writers use them as synonyms. They confuse power with goodness, and mistake law for justice.” —Charles T. Sprading (1871-1959)

Upright: “You might wonder why it’s important to care about yourself. Here’s why: If you don’t care about yourself and don’t respect yourself, then you will settle for bad treatment from others. You will play the role of a victim; you will assume that their bad treatment of you reflects your worth. That’s not true. Their behavior reflects their weakness. A person’s bad treatment of others reflects their own insecurities and weaknesses. People who are strong are generous and helpful; only the weak are controlling and manipulative. The weak look for those who are even weaker but move along when they run into those who are strong. Do not take up the role of a victim because you will continually run across those who want to keep you in that same role.” —Jackie Gingrich Cushman

Re: The Left I: “Can anybody point me to that one time in history where the side that was demanding censorship, segregation, propaganda, radical education, papers to move freely in society, plus government forces going door to door to demand compliance were the good guys?” —Candace Owens

Re: The Left II: “What happened to turn the party of Harry Truman, JFK and even Bill Clinton into a woke neo-Maoist movement? Globalization created a new multibillion-dollar consumer market for American media, universities, law firms, insurance groups, investment houses, sports leagues and entertainment outlets, not to mention the internet and social media. In contrast, work with hands was passe, the supposed stuff of deplorables and clingers — and so better outsourced and offshored. Traditional Democrats were seen increasingly as namby-pamby naifs who rotated power with establishment Republicans. Now with money and institutions in its hip pocket, and cool popular culture on its side, the left would not just damn American institutions but infect them — alter their DNA and reengineer them into revolutionary agencies. So here we are with a near one-party system of a weaponized fused media, popular culture and the administrative state — confident that all Americans will soon agree to love Big Sibling.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Observations: “Earlier this month, Chicago Public Schools announced that it would be making free condoms available in schools, beginning with children in the fifth grade. … It’s time for some brutal honesty. This isn’t about the ‘health’ or ‘safety’ of the children. If it were, the adults would be up in arms at the mere prospect of elementary school children or middle schoolers having sex and would be doing everything in their power to prevent it. But sex is the only destructive behavior that the grown-ups just can’t bring themselves to discourage outright.” —Laura Hollis

For the record I: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi … took the unprecedented step of rejecting two of the Republican members appointed to the [January 6] committee — conservative stalwarts Jim Jordan and Jim Banks. … Remember, Pelosi refused to remove Eric Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee even after it was revealed that he had been compromised by a Chinese spy. But Banks and Jordan are beyond the pale. … By the way, if Pelosi wants to investigate something, she might consider investigating last year’s riots. Two-thirds of Americans support such an investigation. That’s a lot more than the 52% who support a congressional investigation of January 6th.” —Gary Bauer

For the record II: “It may comfort the diehard left to imagine that Washington is at the root of the island’s distress, but there is a reason why those throngs of brave Cubans in the streets last week were chanting ‘Down with the dictatorship!’ and not ‘Down with the embargo!’ They know that their agony is caused by the ruthless despots who for more than six decades have stopped at nothing to keep them in chains.” —Jeff Jacoby

Good question: “As for literacy, how does it help if all Cubans can read if all they’re allowed to read is communist propaganda?” —Cal Thomas

Non compos mentis: “I don’t any take great pleasure … in clashing with the senator. I have a great deal of respect for the institution of the Senate of the United States. But [Rand Paul] was completely out of line. He totally distorted reality. And he made some inflammatory and, I believe, slanderous remarks about lying under oath, which is completely nonsense. I mean, and some of the things he says are so distorted and out of tune with reality, I had to call him on that. I didn’t enjoy it, but I had to do that because he was completely out of line. Totally inappropriate.” —Dr. Anthony Fauci

And last… “I do think that [Dr. Anthony Fauci has] been giving us shades of the truth from the very beginning, but I also think that he is predictable as an elitist. People on the Left believe they know better than you and they think that the common man’s too stupid to make their own decisions, so these decisions need to be made by their betters. And I truly think that he believes that he knows better. … He calculates what the people need to hear and he tells them that regardless of whether it’s true.” —Senator Rand Paul
